Operation Pallial is investigating child-abuse in North Wales children’s homes.
There is evidence that boys were trafficked from these homes and sent to the Dolphin Square complex in Pimlico. They were allegedly used by a filthy VIP ring which operated at the address.
This report from the now-defunct Scallywag magazine details how Westminster Conservative councillors allegedly knew of and indeed participated in the vile and sordid activities:
SCALLYWAG story on scandal in Westminster City
” As in the right-wing clique in Smith Square, with social headquarters in Dolphin Square, so they were able to put up a bold front in the Westminster City Council so discredited by the Dame Porter fiasco of selling council houses to pals for cash and support.
And here again, it was predominantly, and quite overtly, gay. Tony Karpel, now a special adviser to Kenneth Baker, was not only a prominent force in the council itself at the time, but had joined the CCO at the very same time as Julian Lewis, and shared his sympathies, both for extreme right-wing politics, and his fondness for male company.
You would be more than correct to put them down as bosom pals and political flatmates.
As you weave your way through the insidious net of dirty tricks, gerrymandering, the more sordid side of lobbying through sex, as we have, the more you keep coming across the name of Tony Karpel. Karpel and CO’s peers on the council included the crucial Chairman of Planning, Robert Davies, the Deputy Chairman, Simon Milton, the leader, Miles Young, and Cllrs Martindale, Alan Bradley, Alex Segal, Avery and Mortland.
All these belonged to the clique who invariably went out in small groups to the more insalubrious “Boys’ Clubs” in the Soho area where their council was, in fact, also the landlords.
Martindale even once toured the clubs in a Ministry car lent to him to go on a late night tour with a handful of pals. More often they would collect at one of the on-going soirées in Dolphin Square, where, of course, again, their council were the ultimate landlords.
While Karpel retained his very close relationship with the CCO, Deputy Chairman Simon Milton was helping Ian Greer and Associates – the lobby group specially set up to pander to the 100 known Tory gays in Westminster.
He then left to start up his own lobby group called ABCO.”
According to Wikipedia:
” Scallywag magazine was published in London between 1991 and 1995. The subtitle of issues 1 – 6 was “Camden’s only alternative community magazine”. It sought to publish controversial journalism which other satirical and investigative publications (such as Private Eye) would not publish due to fear of litigation.
It was founded and edited by Simon Regan. A previous version was published in Dorset, and the first issue of the ‘Camden Scallywag’ says that the Dorset version was then “on edition 37″.
In 1993 it was sued under English libel law by the then Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, John Major, over reporting rumours that he had had an affair with a Downing Street caterer, even though it had said the allegations were false.
By also suing the magazine’s distributors, he received a settlement from them, and they passed the costs onto the magazine. Scallywag’s financial position never recovered.“
Why did the powers that be want Scallywag discredited and destroyed?
This is a short excerpt from another of their articles:
” In the early nineties, in the now defunct Scallywag magazine, which I founded, we interviewed in some depth twelve former inmates at Bryn Estyn who had all been involved in the Wrexham paedophile ring, which the tribunal acknowledges existed.
Most of these interviews were extremely harrowing and disturbing, but were gently and sensitively conducted over pub lunches where the victim could relax.
We subsequently persuaded ten of them to make sworn affidavits which we proposed to use as back up to half a dozen paedophile stories we later published.
Two of these young men, who had been 14-years-old at the time, swore they had been not only introduced to the paedophile ring operating in the Crest Hotel in Wrexham but had later been escorted on three or four occasions to an address in Pimlico where they were further abused.
We took them separately to Pimlico and asked them to point out the building where this had taken place.
They were both positive in their identification.
It turned out to be the private flat of a well-known, and since highly discredited lobbyist who later went into obscurity in some disgrace because of his involvement with Mohammed al-Fayed and the ‘cash for questions’ scandal.
At the time we ran a story entitled ‘Boys for Questions’ and named several prominent members of the then Thatcher government.
These allegations went to the very top of the Tory party, yet there was a curious and almost ominous lack of writs. The lobbyist was a notorious ‘Queen’ who specialised in gay parties with a ‘political mix’ in the Pimlico area – most convenient to the Commons – and which included selected flats in Dolphin Square.
The two young men were able to give us very graphic descriptions of just what went on, including acts of buggery, and alleged that they were only two of many from children’s homes other than North Wales.
There was, to my certain knowledge, at least one resignation from the Conservative office in Smith Square once we had published our evidence and named names.”
We do hope the Met is investigating these horrific allegations.
It’s about bloody time the truth came out.
