HM House of Commons hears shocking revelation of royals covering up church sex abuse

Labour MP Chris Bryant has made a shocking revelation about royal family members covering up sexual abuse by a high ranking member of the clergy.

The Labour MP for Rhondda told an emergency debate on sexual abuse in the House of Commons of a shocking case he was told about when he was a young vicar.

A friend and colleague was suicidal after being raped by a senior churchman. Bryant told the House of Commons that “the senior cleric concerned had a great deal of protection from the establishment, including from certain members in the royal family.”

 The senior member of the Church of England has since been prosecuted and jailed said the Labour MP. Chris Bryant went on to plead: “isn’t the one thing that we much learn from all this is that the best way to protect the institution is actually to protect the victims – put our house in order.”

Leaked list of Conservative Party sex pest sleaze published, shaming THIRTY SIX current Tory MPs

Conservative Party secretaries, researchers and aides have compiled a list of 36 Tory MPs’ inappropriate sexual behaviour and unwanted advances.

As senior Conservative figures have been furiously briefing to downplay sexual allegations against Tory MPs, furious Westminster workers have been compiling proof that 11% of all the party’s MPs have been abusing their positions to harass female and male employees.

Female Westminster workers have been circulating a dirty dossier which now comprises inappropriate behaviour by 36 sitting Tory MPs including a minister who is “handsy with women at parties,” a backbencher who “paid a woman to be quiet” and an MP who is “perpetually intoxicated and very inappropriate with women.”

The list was leaked to the Guido Fawkes Westminster blog who publish what they insist is the full spreadsheet that has been passed around aggrieved Westminster researchers.

The right wing political website says the list includes:

  • “2 serving Cabinet ministers accused of inapproipriate behavious towards women
  • 18 serving ministers accused of various forms od inappropriate sexual behaviour
  • 12 MPs who are said to have behaved inappropriately towards female researchers
  • 4 MPs who are alleged to have behaved inappropriately towards male researchers”

Some of the allegations have already emerged, such as International Trade Minister Mark Garnier referring to his secretary as “sugar tits” and admitting making her purchase sex toys for him. Or avowed Christian Stephen Crabb, who ran for leadership of the party, sexting a 19-year-old who was interviewed for a job with him. But the sheer amount of alleged sex pests on the dirty dossier suggests a culture among many Tory MPs of sexual harassment of junior staff with impunity.

This evidence will pile on the pressure on Theresa May to conduct a proper investigation and sanction or sack MPs found to have harassed or behaved inappropriately to their workers at a time when she can ill afford to lose support in her weakened minority government.

Names and identifying details were redacted on the spreadsheet which was leaked and published by the right wing political blog Guido, but the sleaze dossier contains a list of 36 sex pests including the following allegations against them:

  • handsy at parties
  • inappropriate with women + paid a female to be quiet
  • sexual relations / inappropriate with women
  • sexual relations with member of his private office
  • inappropriate with female and male staff
  • handsy with women
  • sexual relations with researcher and others
  • inappropriate with male researchers
  • inappropriate with female researchers
  • inappropriate with male researchers – long history
  • handsy with females
  • perpetually intoxicated and very inappropriate with women
  • inappropriate with female researchers + handsy in taxis
  • inappropriate with male researchers and heavy drinker
  • inappropriate with female researchers and XXXX
  • inappropriate with female researchers + uses prostitutes
  • inappropriate with male researchers
  • inappropriate with female private office staff
  • inappropriate with female researchers and journalists
  • inappropriate with females
  • asked female researcher to do odd things
  • affair with female researcher
  • video exists of XXXX
  • inappropriate with female researchers (historic)

Columnist Owen Jones accused senior Conservatives of treating the allegations as a “a bit of a laugh.”  On the Marr show, discussing the emerging accusations, he said there are  “two senor cabinet Ministers being named by political researchers as serial sex pests.

“The PM has been briefed on these allegations. Whips, and this is critical, are treating it as a bit of a laugh.

“Yesterday Gove made a crass joke about Harvey Weinstein and sexual abuse and rape of women.”

And he called the Prime Minister’s reaction a cover up: “Women need to be supported and to be believed, the issue here is about the briefing to May, who is not taking action over serving cabinet Ministers.

“Action needs to be taken, the critical questions is whether Theresa May herself is involved in a cover up of sexual harassment by her own Ministers.“

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott, told the BBC show that when she was first elected as an MP the sexist culture at Westminster was even worse.

“You would have sort of micro-sexual aggression,” said the Hackney MP, “so women would get up in the chamber and Tories opposite would do this gesture like they were weighing their breasts,” she said.

Labour MPs John Mann and Sarah Champion have called for an independent body for Westminster workers to be able to report sexual misconduct to.

And as stories emerged of a Conservative MP being known in Westminster circles to allegedly take photos of young men in compromising positions to demand sexual favours, Downing Street denied that Theresa May receives regular updates from her party whips about her MPs’ sexual indiscretions.

Katie Perrior, the PM’s former head of communications, appeared on BBC One’s Breakfast, insisting details were “kept away from the prime minister” but “information is held by the whips, because they use it to make sure that MPs know that other people within the party know exactly what they’ve been up to, and that behaviour either is not acceptable, or it will be used against them – you will vote in a certain way or we will tell your wife exactly what you’ve been up to.”

Hollie Greig: A Survivor’s Battle For Justice

The information below is based on extensive interviews by Robert Green with Anne and Hollie Greig and on papers, reports and documents relevant to the Hollie Greig case.

Hollie Greig is now a young woman of 35 and has Down’s Syndrome. Nevertheless, she is a competent and truthful witness. This horrific sequence of events only came to light in 2000, when Hollie was twenty. After her mother, Anne Greig, suffering violence by her husband, fled the family home, Hollie, who was with her, began to relate the details of this staggering affair. Not only had Hollie told of her father and brother’s alleged assaults, but also named a further 20 alleged ritual abusers to the police, including a senior police officer, a local sheriff (judge), her head teacher, her own female Social Services carer, medical staff and a variety of other professionals. Some time later Hollie named another alleged ritual abuser who is the Head Teacher of a school but this name has yet to be shared with the police as they refuse to investigate the case.

Eleven days after Hollie had made her statement to the police in 2000, a party of ten, on the instructions of Social Services, dragged Anne Greig from the flat she shared with Hollie, forcibly injected her and took her unconscious to the local mental institution. Social Services then sent Hollie back to her allegedly abusive father.

One of the effects of having Down’s Syndrome is that those with the condition generally have long and vivid memories,. Hence, through a process of elimination, Anne was able to discover that Hollie’s abuse must have begun from the age of six.

On 17`h November 1997, Hollie’s devoted uncle and brother of Anne, Robert David Greig,had been found dead in a stationary burning car in a remote lane outside Aberdeen. There was no real explanation at the time for his death.

He had no serious problems of any kind that were known about and was a pleasant and well-liked man with no history of depression or any similar disorder. Anne, despite being his next-of-kin, was repeatedly refused a copy of his autopsy, which was not provided until late 2009. She was suspicious, but had nothing to go on and the police and fire service made no enquiries about foul play, despite Anne’s discomfiture about the statement of an attempted “rescuer”, who much later was discovered to be known to Hollie’s father.


In 2001, Hollie told her mother that her uncle had once walked in to find Hollie allegedly being sexually abused by her father. The father had allegedly threatened to kill Robert Greig. Again, by calculating the time of this event, it was concluded that this alleged occurrence took place shortly before Robert’s mysterious death.

Woman Says Harvey Weinstein Forcibly Performed Oral Sex on Her During Her Period

Another woman said Tuesday that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her. Mimi Haleyi, represented by attorney Gloria Allred, said he lured her to a SoHo loft in 2006, where he backed her into what seemed to be a children’s bedroom, and forcibly performed oral sex on her. She was on her period at the time, and he pulled out her tampon during the sexual assault, she said.According to Haleyi, he asked her, “‘Don’t you feel we’re so much closer to each other now?’ To which I replied, ‘No.’”

She said she told several friends about this story. Allred declined to comment on whether they will sue, and whether they will go to the cops about this. She suggested this may not be within the statute of limitation, but Haleyi’s allegations could still be of interest to law enforcement investigations into Weinstein.

Cops in Los Angeles, New York, and England are investigating Weinstein for sexual assault.

A New York Times report said Weinstein settled sexual harassment claims with at least eight actresses and staffers. Another article from The New Yorker said that several women alleged he sexually assaulted them. Since then, dozens of women said he sexually harassed them or worse.

Sallie Hofmeister, a Weinstein spokeswoman, has previously denied claims, saying her client “unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex.” Law Newz reached out to her for comment. She dismissed this claim as well.

“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein,” Hofmeister said in an emailed statement.

Update – Oct. 24, 7:26 p.m. EST: Added the new statement from a Weinstein spokesperson.

  • PC Declan Gabriel was found not guilty of rape and sexual assault in February
  • He attended an incident involving a girl, 17, and her mother in September 2015
  • Instead of taking the teenager to a safe place, he drove drove her to a lay-by 
  • He unzipped his trousers and admitted the girl touched him inappropriately 
  • Shameful incident came just seven months after he saved a 12-month-old baby

A police officer once branded ‘a true hero’ has been sacked for gross misconduct – after he took a vulnerable 17-year-old girl to a lay-by and unzipped his trousers.

PC Declan Gabriel, 28, was found not guilty of rape and two counts of sexual assault during a trial in February this year.

He attended a domestic incident in Northampton in the early hours of September 2015 involving a vulnerable 17-year-old girl and her mother.

Instead of taking the teenager to a place of safety, he asked her about her relationship with her boyfriend before driving past the house he was supposed to be taking her to.

He then drove to a secluded lay-by where he proceeded to unzip his trousers and put his hands inside them claiming that he needed to re-adjust his underwear.

PC Gabriel stated during his trial that the teenager then touched him inappropriately.

Seven months before the incident, he was branded a ‘true hero’ by the mother of a 12-month old daughter whose life he saved.

He had rushed over to a woman in distress at a crime scene, where the child was having problems breathing.

He performed first aid before speeding the baby to Northampton General Hospital where doctors told him his actions had most likely saved the baby’s life.

PC Gabriel was recommended for a commendation for his actions.

The girl’s mother, Rachel, said on Facebook: ‘Thank you, Declan, for saving my daughter’s life.

‘I’ll always be truly grateful. You’re a true hero.’

PC Gabriel was subject to a fast track misconduct hearing yesterday morning but failed to appear.

He was dismissed without notice.

PC Gabriel failed to report the incident, or request another officer join him to take the teenager on to the place of safety.

He also failed to note the incident in his pocket notebook or on forms he filled in about the domestic incident involving the teenager.

Chief Constable Simon Edens, from Northamptonshire Police, said: ‘Police officers are required to be honest and act with integrity at all times.

‘They must not compromise or abuse their position.

‘PC Gabriel, like most police officers, would have operated on trust and therefore would not have needed nor received close supervision.

‘He had a significant amount of power and authority, particularly in relation to a teenage girl who was temporarily in his care.

‘He has breached that trust and exploited that power and authority.

PC Gabriel's name will be added to a register that will bar him from being employed by any police force in the country

‘The gravity of the breaches and the circumstances in which PC Gabriel committed them leave me in no doubt that he has committed gross misconduct, conduct so serious that it justifies dismissal.

‘He was entrusted to act in the best interests of a vulnerable teenage girl but he failed to do that.

‘Northamptonshire Police has daily contact with some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.

‘Nobody should ever have any concerns about the way they will be treated by officers and staff when they deal with them.

‘Nor should they fear that anyone from Northamptonshire Police might want to exploit them.

‘I am proud to lead a force which is made up of men and women who operate professionally and ethically, with mercifully few exceptions.

‘PC Gabriel has grossly breached the trust placed in him by the force, the community, and by the young girl and her family.

‘Without that trust, he is unable to operate as a police officer.

‘There is no place for him in this force or in policing as a whole and I therefore dismiss him from the police service without notice.

‘His name will be placed on a College of Policing register so he cannot be employed by any police force in the country.’

“K-9_topology” – Art or War on Logic?

You know we’re in serious trouble when this kind of thing is presented as art!

A Slovenian artist breastfed her dogs and fertilized one of her eggs with a dog cell as part of an award-winning three-month art project. She also produced a video documenting the creative process behind the bizarre venture.

Maja Smrekar lived in seclusion with her dogs as part of the lengthy artistic experiment, which was titled “K-9_topology.”

During that time, she triggered her body to produce breast milk by systematic breast pumping. She then breastfed her puppy Ada to explore “the social and ideological instrumentalization of the female body and breastfeeding.”

Smrekar also took a fat cell from another dog, Byron, and used it to fertilize one of her eggs using a method similar to IVF. The fat cell was a non-sexual cell, so no dog’s sperm was used in the project.

ROBERT GREEN ON BELL END GUY ADAMS

Guy Adams

 

As some readers may be aware, Guy Adams of the Daily Mail has launched yet another grossly unbalanced attack on Chief Constable Mike Veale for his inspirational and courageous example of carrying out his duty without fear or favour, supported of course, by other senior police officers, with regard to the Heath case.

Yet again, I was also maliciously quoted by the Mail over Hollie`s case. The fact that the allegations were Hollie`s and not mine is not something the Mail has bothered to inform its readers. A few days ago, I had forwarded all the independent expert witness documents fully supporting Hollie`s claims to the Mail`s Editor-in-Chief, Paul Dacre, including one headed by Chief Constable Andrew Brown of Grampian Police, in a letter dated 24th September 2003 to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, which resulted in the CICA granting a financial award to Hollie as a genuine victim of sexual abuse.

Bearing in mind this latest offending article, allow me to remind readers what the Chief Constable`s letter said in its penultimate paragraph.

“Officers who have dealt with Hollie have taken the view that she was a truthful witness, to the best of her ability and an entirely innocent victim.”

It could hardly be clearer, but it seems that Mr Dacre has no regard for the truth,  nor any pretence at balanced journalism. A relentless effort by the Daily Mail in support of the Establishment`s obsession in attacking Chief Constable Veale seems to be its chief motivation. The Mail is even prepared to be so unscrupulous as to smear a brave disabled victim of multiple sexual abuse, Hollie Greig, in the process.

I should say that I asked Mr Dacre to confirm that he had personally read all the supporting evidence for Hollie, including that from Dr Frances Kelly, of Grampian Police, Dr Eva Harding, Dr Jack Boyle and Dr Paul Carter. Disappointingly, Mr Dacre has not had the decency to even reply, unless the authorising of this disgraceful article today may be considered to be his response.

I would add that based on Hollie`s allegations and the expert witness supporting evidence, all I asked the police to do was to conduct an adequate investigation into her complaints. That this was never done was confirmed by DC Lisa Jane Evans on oath in court in 2012, admitting that not one of those identified as alleged abusers by a witness, so described by the police themselves as truthful and an entirely innocent victim, was even questioned by the police.

Of course, the police had no right to buckle under political pressure, but the recent discovery from my former MP, David Mowat of  Scottish government documents, establishes that the required  investigation was blocked by a ministerial  colleague of Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon, Elish Angiolini.

I have been critical of the Daily Mail and its editor, Paul Dacre. If Mr Dacre feels that I have been unfair in my criticisms, he is at liberty to say so. Unlike the Daily Mail, I believe in fair play and in respect and support for victims of horrific sexual abuse.

daily fail protecting Satanic lynch pin Heath

False claims of provincial police chief obsessed with proving Ted Heath was a paedophile: Mike Veale has spent £1.4million and failed to come up with a shred of evidence, says GUY ADAMS

Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police Mike Veale

Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police Mike Veale

Wearing a freshly pressed shirt and what appeared to be a light dusting of make-up, police chief Mike Veale decided to use the power of the internet to combat criticism of his high-profile investigation into alleged sex crimes by Sir Edward Heath.

It was December 2 last year, and Wiltshire’s top copper was facing widespread public ridicule over reports that several key witnesses in his controversial £1.4 million inquiry, Operation Conifer, were discredited fantasists.

Some, a newspaper had just claimed, were oddballs propagating an obviously fake conspiracy theory that the former PM belonged to a paedophile network behind satanic orgies at which small children were stabbed to death in rural churches.

Other ‘star’ witnesses reportedly included ‘Nick’, a notorious Walter Mitty figure whose false claims about a VIP sex ring in Westminster had been comprehensively demolished in an official review.

The suggestion that Wiltshire police were still paying serious attention to such dubious individuals during an inquiry of major national significance had placed Veale’s career and credibility on the line.

So he decided to strike back, instructing his force’s PR department to bring video cameras to his office to record an ‘open letter’ reassuring the public about Operation Conifer, then post it to YouTube.

The video, which remains online, began with Veale saying he wanted to ‘set the record straight’ about Heath and ‘ensure that the current facts are entirely and unequivocally clear about this case’.

In particular, the £150,000-a-year police chief wanted to address two highly important matters.

Mike Veale, chief constable of Wiltshire Police, speaks to the media about Operation Conifer. The former Conservative prime minister Sir Edward Heath would be questioned over allegations that he raped and indecently assaulted boys as young as 10 were he alive today, the controversial police report has said

The former Conservative prime minister Sir Edward Heath would be questioned over allegations that he raped and indecently assaulted boys as young as 10 were he alive today, the controversial police report has said

‘Fact!’ he said. ‘As part of Operation Conifer we have not spoken to the witness known as Nick.’

‘Fact!’ he continued. ‘Recent media coverage… referred to satanic ritual sexual abuse. Let me be clear: this part of the investigation is only one small element of the overall inquiry and does not relate to Sir Edward Heath.’

The 51-year-old Chief Constable of Wiltshire was, in other words, using a formal PR statement to declare that two major aspects of embarrassing recent newspaper reports about Operation Conifer were entirely false.

His detectives had neither spoken to the discredited ‘Nick’, he was claiming, nor had they heard any evidence to suggest Heath, who died in 2005 aged 89, was involved with a satanic paedophile ring.

All of which sounds fair enough — were it not for one crucial point: Veale was wrong.

For, ten months on, I can reveal that his comment about ‘Nick’ was highly misleading, while denying that Operation Conifer was looking at allegations of satanism by Sir Edward was simply untrue.

In fact, in the past two years Wiltshire police have devoted significant resources to pursuing the case of ‘Nick’, reviewing a number of statements made by him to other forces.

What’s more, officers working on Operation Conifer have taken evidence from half a dozen ‘victims’ who claim they were abused by a satanic sex cult that involved the former PM.

Veale sheepishly admitted this last week, when he published a 109-page report outlining the findings of Operation Conifer.

On page 59, it clearly states: ‘During the course of the investigation, six victims made disclosures that included allegations that Sir Edward Heath was involved in satanic or ritual abuse.’ At least three of them had spoken to Operation Conifer by the time Veale popped up on YouTube.

In other words, Veale’s own official report indicates that his previous claims about satanism were completely untrue.

Which poses a crucial question: why did Mike Veale, the chief constable behind one of the most high-profile police investigations in British history, seek to solve a PR crisis by issuing a statement so transparently inaccurate?

It is impossible to be sure, as Wiltshire Police say they will ‘not be making further comment’.

So we are left to speculate. Did Veale deliberately say something untrue (making him a liar)? Or did he make the false claim by accident (making him incompetent)? Or is there some other explanation?

‘Either the man is a fool or he’s a knave,’ is the view of Sir Edward’s godson Lincoln Seligman. ‘It’s also possible that he started off this inquiry as a fool but became a knave during the course of it.’

Yet this bizarre affair sums up all you need to know about Operation Conifer, now regarded as one of the most farcical major criminal inquiries in modern policing.

Critics will also say it sheds light on a culture of police incompetence and misguided political correctness that has led to the persecution of blameless public figures falsely accused of historic sex crimes.

Conifer stretches back to late 2015, when Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson and a now-defunct website called Exaro were spreading confected hysteria about an alleged VIP paedophile ring involving dead or elderly public figures such as former Tory MPs Harvey Proctor and Leon Brittan.

Their chief source for this bile was ‘Nick’, who, among many spurious claims, alleged he was repeatedly sexually abused as a child by Sir Edward Heath.

Some incidents supposedly took place on Sir Edward’s yacht Morning Cloud in the Seventies or Eighties; others at an address in London, where ‘Nick’ claimed Proctor once tried to maim his genitals with a penknife during an orgy, only to be prevented by Sir Edward.

There was, as we now know, no wider evidence to support his outlandish claims. But now those claims were winging around the internet, in 2015 Wiltshire Police began to receive other wild allegations about Heath.

In July that year, the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) was approached by a retired officer who alleged that the trial of a Salisbury brothel owner called Myra Ling Ling Forde had been scrapped in 1994 after she threatened to name the former PM as a client who used rent boys.

For Veale, a West Country boy who had joined his local force at 16, this series of events offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: the chance for his obscure force to spearhead a major inquiry.

Conifer was duly launched with a press conference outside Sir Edward’s old home in Salisbury at which officers appealed for his ‘victims’ to come forward, saying they ‘would be believed’.

Critics said this language turned one of the pillars of British justice — the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty — on its head, and wondered at the wisdom of investigating ‘crimes’ by a man who could neither be charged nor defend himself.

But no matter: in the weeks that followed, an astonishing total of 118 people emerged to raise abuse claims about the former PM.

There was one problem: Veale’s team of investigators (which would eventually number more than 20) soon realised the vast majority of their tales were fantasies. Indeed, after chucking out the most blatantly spurious reports, they were left with 40 claims that they felt warranted investigation.

Then came further setbacks.

First, Operation Midland, the Metropolitan Police’s investigation into the allegations by ‘Nick’, collapsed in the spring of 2016.

The still-anonymous man, who claimed abuse and murder had been carried out by a string of VIPs, many of whom had their homes raided and incurred significant legal costs, is now being investigated himself for perverting the course of justice.

Then the IPCC ruled there was no evidence to support the original claim about brothel-owner Forde that had led to Conifer being launched in the first place.

Most police chiefs would surely have scrapped the investigation. But Veale, the only applicant for the job when he was made chief constable, ploughed on.

Some blame this on inexperience: Wiltshire is one of Britain’s smallest forces, where senior officers have little or no experience of high-profile investigations under a political spotlight.

‘The problem with a force that size is that if you are chief constable, you might struggle to find something meaningful to do in the afternoon,’ is how one retired chief constable puts it.

Another police source says: ‘Veale is a “provincial carrot cruncher”. Nothing wrong with that, but when you take coppers whose priorities are usually stopping speeding motorists on the A303 and put them in charge of a complex, politically charged criminal investigation, don’t be surprised if it turns into a shambles.’

Some even believe Veale, who is married with a teenage son, began to believe the conspiracy theories spread by discredited ‘victims’.

Only this week, he gave an interview referring to a ‘state cover-up’ of abuse by politicians, civil servants and the security services. Last month, it emerged that he had been in personal email contact with Robert Green, a self-styled ‘campaigner’ who has been jailed for harassing people he falsely accused of paedophilia.

Among the outlandish lines of inquiry Operation Conifer officers decided to pursue last summer were suggestions that Heath — who spent most of his later years in the almost constant company of close protection officers — was in a satanic paedophile ring.

Documents and other material obtained by the Mail show that the ‘victims’ making this extraordinary claim included three women who had originally approached Wiltshire police with tall tales of satanism in the late Eighties.

Back then, they claimed they had occultist parents who regularly raped and murdered children, including babies, in ceremonies in candlelit churches and remote woodland clearings — allegations dismissed at the time for lack of corroborating evidence.

But the three women did not allege Heath was one of their abusers when they originally came forward in 1989. It wasn’t until after the appeal for ‘victims’ made by Operation Conifer more than 25 years later that they claimed the former PM was involved.

Speaking to Veale’s officers, one of the trio declared she could picture Heath with his top off and his ‘turkey neck’ exposed, laughing as he abused her.

On another occasion, she claimed she had seen him in a candle-lit hut where satanic symbols had been drawn on the floor and wall-hangings. She said adults at the paedophile orgy wore masks while their victims had to go barefoot.

Another of the women claimed Heath was known to members of the satanic paedophile ring as ‘Teddy’ and had been accompanied at its events by uniformed security men.

In further police interviews, the women spoke of witnessing babies being murdered, youngsters being drugged and forced to drink blood, and bizarre rituals involving chanting, gang rape and small children being disembowelled.

Often, they claimed, these events — some of which Heath, a public figure, was supposed to have attended — took place in broad daylight in the countryside.

There was no real evidence to back up these claims. For example, no children had been reported missing in the places where the women claimed the ritualised sacrifices had taken place.

But rather than dismiss the women’s allegations out of hand (as their predecessors had in the Eighties), Veale’s team decided to have them reviewed by an expert called Dr Richard Hoskins.

Dr Hoskins, a criminologist accredited by the National Crime Agency to give expert evidence at trials, was also asked to read multiple transcripts of interviews with ‘Nick’ which officers on other forces had carried out, and advise Veale’s staff on whether they ought to be taken seriously.

He produced a 157-page report. It explained in great detail why the women’s claims were likely to be false, pointing out that their allegations were full of contradictions, vague about important specifics but full of lurid detail, and backed up by absolutely no corroborating evidence.

What’s more, Hoskins said, many of their recollections of being abused appeared to have originally surfaced thanks to controversial psychotherapists who use hypnosis to help clients unlock what they believe are memories of childhood trauma.

Some events they claimed to have witnessed also seemed to have uncomfortable parallels with the plots of bestselling books.

His report concluded that their ‘so-called retrieved memories seem to me mostly likely to fit False Memory Recall’, a condition where the brain creates memories of events that never happened.

It was also highly critical of the website Exaro and Tom Watson for their role in bringing the allegations of Nick, which he also believed were clearly false, into the public domain.

All of which, again, ought to have raised serious questions about the future of Operation Conifer.

But instead of reconsidering in the light of the Hoskins report, Veale once more ploughed on.

Having issued his PR statement that falsely denied they had investigated satanic sex claims against Sir Edward, his team set about investigating claims by the remaining 40 complainants.

By the time Conifer was published ten months later, all but seven had been dismissed — and these seven all seem dubious.

None appears to have provided corroborating evidence that they were abused. At least one is a convicted criminal. And most of their stories are flawed.

One, for example, claims he was abused as a teenager in Heath’s garden between 1990 and 1992. Yet the garden was protected around the clock by police and monitored by an extensive CCTV system. Another says Heath abused him in his Mayfair flat in 1961, claiming the property was filled with yachting gear, In fact, Heath didn’t take up the sport until 1963.

The report, meanwhile, is loaded with cant and obfuscation, automatically describing anyone who made any claim whatsoever about Sir Edward as a ‘victim’.

People whose claims are shown to be false have been re-categorised not as fantasists or liars seeking compensation (as at least two ‘victims’ already have) but as ‘people who have reported alleged abuse by Sir Edward’.

Amid such platitudes, the report shows Veale’s team has ploughed through £1.4 million of public money (at a time when crime in Wiltshire is rising by 10 per cent a year and violent crime by 19 per cent), spending £34,542 on air tickets and car hire, and £556 on books about the former PM.

Astonishingly, £2,000 was spent hiring a psychologist called Elly Hanson, a specialist in a condition associated with satanic sexual abuse, to offer advice about two complainants. Ms Hanson is also a member of the independent panel that oversaw Operation Conifer (although she denies the payment affected her independence).

For all this spending, Veale had a surprisingly loose grip on major details of his investigation.

Asked at the press conference that launched the report whether any complainants in the seven remaining cases were convicted criminals, he replied: ‘I don’t know.’ It emerged hours later that one is actually a jailed paedophile.

But perhaps no one should have been surprised. For this is one ‘top cop’ whose public pronouncements deserve to be taken with a pinch of salt.
