Is Filthy Britain’s biggest cover-up ever, finally about to be exposed?

Are the vulnerable child-abuse victims of this septic isle about to get the justice they so rightly deserve?

Is the Elm Guest House scandal going to bring down the whole  perverted UK Establishment after all these years?

This article from the Daily Mail outlines the significance of the disgusting boy-brothel, where vulnerable children were trafficked from local care homes to be abuse by VIP filth:

“Timebomb at Elm Guest House: Pop stars, a bishop and a top politician appear  on a list seized by police investigating child abuse at the London hotel in the  1980s”

  • Police have  reopened investigation after new information emerged that suggests the hotel was  a venue for a paedophile ring of VIPs
  • Former  co-owner Carole Kasir said to have list of high-profile  visitors
  • Could this  be the biggest Establishment cover-up yet?

Peter Hatton-Bornshin killed himself six days  after his 28th birthday. He had taken an overdose of codeine  and choked to death. ‘The tragic end to a tragic life,’ is how the coroner  summed up the stark facts presented to the inquest.

And who at the time would disagree? Peter was  only a baby when his father died in an accident. He was orphaned at 13 when his  mother threw herself in front of a train. His stepfather then handed Peter and  his older brother to social services.

And that is how Peter ended up at the Grafton  Close Children’s Home, which was run by Richmond borough council in South-West  London. Truly, he was a lost soul.

When his life finally came to an end in a  Kingston-upon-Thames bedsit, he left a note which explained that he feared he  would be unable to control his violent fantasies against women if he remained  alive.

This personality disorder had caused him  briefly to be a patient at Broadmoor mental hospital. His case worker said that  while he did not consider Peter to be a danger to society, his mental problems  were partly a result of the abuse he had suffered while in local authority care.  One line in his suicide note seemed to refer to this. It read: ‘I will get those  bastards.’

But while it was the ‘tragic end to a tragic  life’, his story does not finish there.

Eighteen years after his death, the police  are again looking at the Peter Hatton-Bornshin case, as part of a wider  investigation, launched last month, into allegations that in the early Eighties  a paedophile ring of VIPs preyed on boys from the Grafton Close Children’s  Home.

If the historic allegations at the heart of  Operation Fernbridge are proved, they would represent one of the more  sensational and disturbing Establishment sex scandals of the modern era.

Long-existing allegations of a cover-up would  again have to be aired.

During a police raid on a property in central  London last month, detectives seized a list of names of high-profile alleged  visitors to the Elm Guest House in Barnes, South-West London — a gay-friendly  establishment, and one where under-age rent boys and children from the Grafton  Close home were reportedly brought to have sex with adult men.

The list includes a number of senior MPs, a  high-ranking policeman, a leading tycoon, figures from the National Front and  Sinn Fein, an official of the Royal Household, an MI5 officer, two pop stars and  the traitorous Soviet spy Anthony Blunt.

Cyril Smith, the late Liberal MP for  Rochdale, has already been named as a regular at the guest house, where he  allegedly met teenage rent boys when the homosexual age of consent was 21.

The guest house has also been linked to a  now-defunct Tory fringe group that promoted homosexual rights.

Operation Fernbridge detectives are also  believed to be on the trail of almost two dozen photographs that are supposed to  have been taken by the guest-house owner — which place a number of these figures  from the worlds of politics, showbusiness and national security at her  establishment.

Some pictures are said to show these men in  the company of under-age boys.

New police interest in the Elm Guest House  allegations stems from October last year, when the campaigning Labour MP Tom  Watson called for an investigation into the political links of one Peter  Righton, a notorious paedophile who had first been exposed 20 years  before.

In September 1992, Righton pleaded guilty to  three charges of importing or possessing obscene material — paedophile gay porn  — after customs officers at Dover intercepted two packages addressed to  him.

It was a squalid case that in other  circumstances might have warranted only local interest.

But Righton, then aged 66, was no ordinary  child sex offender. He had been a very senior and respected figure in the field  of residential child care, and a former consultant to the charity the National  Children’s Bureau, whose patrons included the then Health Minister, Virginia  Bottomley.

After his conviction, it emerged that Righton  was a founder member of the Paedophile Information Exchange — a contact group  for men interested in sex with children. He is now believed to be  dead.

Westminster sources say that following his  intervention in the House, Mr Watson received more than 200 phone calls, many of  them from alleged victims of paedophile abuse by public figures unconnected with  Righton. The MP passed the information on to the police.

Righton’s links to figures in the Thatcher  government are still being assessed by detectives.

The Mail understands that no formal decision  has been taken yet on whether Watson’s  allegations will be formally  probed.

However, one person who contacted Mr Watson  had specific information about boys from Grafton Close Children’s Home being  abused at the Elm Guest House.

In 1982, Britain was a very different place  for gay males than it is today. Only 15 years had passed since homosexual acts  between consenting adults had been decriminalised.

Gay public figures did not come out of the  closet voluntarily and places where they met were still necessarily  discreet. Apparently one such rendezvous was the Elm Guest House in Rocks Lane,  Barnes.

It was only yards from Barnes Common, which  was, and still is, a well-known gay cruising ground.

Run by Indian-born Haroon Kasir and his  German wife Carole, the guest house was openly advertised in the gay press of  the time as nothing more sinister than a place where homosexual men could meet.

There was a sauna with ‘video facilities’ and  a solarium.

One publication to ‘strongly recommend’ the  guest house to its readers was the newsletter of the Conservative Group for  Homosexual Equality. There is a review of it in a June 1982 edition.

The CGHE campaigned for the lowering of the  gay age of consent to 16.

One of its chairmen was Ian Harvey, a junior  foreign office minister who was forced to quit government in 1958 after being  caught having sex with a Coldstream guardsman in a London park.

Other residents of Rocks Lane were aware that  the Elm Guest House was unlike the other small hotels in what was then a  ‘scruffy’ area. Some understood it to be a brothel.

Yesterday, another long-time resident told  us: ‘It had a reputation. Somebody told me that their daughter had come home and  saw a lot of naked men in the front room as she walked past.

‘She was very shocked. I don’t know if she  made a complaint to police about it. I just assumed it was a male  brothel.’

The woman, who did not wish to be named,  witnessed a 1982 police raid which saw Mr and Mrs Kasir and two others arrested.  One of those detained was a 17-year-old rent boy who acted as ‘in-house  masseur’.

We understand he was a teenage actor who had  appeared on television in Doctor Who, as well as on stage at a Royal Command  performance.

The youth — paid more than £100 a night when  working at Elm Guest House — was initially charged with assisting in running the  brothel.

The charge was later dropped. This week, he  declined to comment when approached by the Mail.

Undercover police officers had been inside  the property for a number of days posing as clients, while watching sex parties  that took place there.

A planned police raid had to be brought  forward after a hidden police radio was activated by accident. Officers had  hoped to catch several dozen clients — and who knows how many public figures —  but there were fewer than ten customers there when the operation was  compromised.

The Kasirs were subsequently charged with  running a disorderly house. At the Old Bailey the following year they were  convicted, fined and given suspended sentences.

All other charges in relation to the raid had  been dropped by then.

We understand that the police had become  interested in the guest house not simply because it was a male brothel, but  because of concerns for an under-age boy at the address.

At the time of the raid, the child was  removed from the premises and placed in local authority care

So where was the child ‘safely’ accommodated  following his rescue? At the Grafton Close Children’s Home in Hounslow, some  eight miles away . . .

Several figures at the centre of these  allegations are no longer alive. One of them is Carole Kasir, a diabetic, who  died of an insulin overdose aged 48, in 1990.

Shortly after her death, a child protection  campaigner from the National Association Of Young People In Care (NAYPIC) called  for a criminal investigation into events at Elm Guest House.

The campaigner claimed that he had been told  by Mrs Kasir that boys had been brought in from a children’s home for sex. She  had told him she had photographs or video of many establishment figures at her  hotel, including a bishop.

One photograph allegedly showed a former  cabinet minister in a sauna with a naked boy.

The same campaigner told us this week that he  could not speak at length because the police wanted to interview him.

However, he claimed he knew of 11 boys from  Grafton Close Children’s Home who had been abused at the Elm Guest House.

He added: ‘Carole Kasir had logbooks, names,  times, dates, even pictures of people who went in and out of Elm Guest House.  Her house was raided in the Eighties.

‘The police say it was done by a local force,  but I know it was done by Special Branch. That evidence — of who visited Elm  Guest House — no longer exists.

‘I’ll leave people to draw their own  conclusions, but Carole Kasir was held without charge for three days, and you  don’t do that on a run-of-the-mill vice raid. There was more to it than  that.’

He added: ‘There were boys found in the home,  but they were only ever interviewed as witnesses to the brothel, never as  victims of abuse.

‘I won’t say any more as I don’t want to risk  prejudicing this inquiry, because finally it seems the police are doing the  right thing.’

The same allegations were pursued for several  years by Mary Moss, a former colleague of the campaigner at NAYPIC (which is now  defunct).

Ms Moss is clearly a troubled soul, who on  her blog website claims that she, too, was abused as a child.

In another online posting, apparently written  by her, she described meeting Carole Kasir. ‘She told me she was running a hotel  and had some fab parties.

‘Yes, there were prominent people there but,  hey, this was a nice suburb and [the guest house] was her business . . . but it  was only on that night the police raided, when she stupidly thought it was just  gay-bashing, that her eyes were peeled open for years to come about what was  going on under her nose.’

Ms Moss believes Carole Kasir was murdered to  cover up for the famous people who had used her brothel.

Detectives now investigating the allegations  of paedophilia at Rocks Lane have been in a protracted dialogue with Ms Moss,  which led to them executing a search warrant on her home in central London last  month. There is no suggestion that she was involved in any offences.

What, then, is the truth about Elm Guest  House and Grafton Close Children’s Home, which have both long since closed?

The acid test for the Operation Fernbridge  detectives is whether or not — as happened in the Jimmy Savile child sex abuse  inquiry — there is now an ‘avalanche’ of credible witnesses and victims,  encouraged by this new investigation to unburden themselves after years of  nursing horrible secrets.

The police need several victims telling the  same stories in order to make a case.

The fallout from the Savile revelations means  there is renewed interest in historic child abuse allegations against famous  figures. And the police do not want to be accused of doing nothing  again.

We have seen in the case of Lord McAlpine  what can happen when an apparently politically-motivated witchhunt latches onto  an innocent man.

But there is the other, longer-term human  cost. The abused can become abusers in a perpetual cycle. Such might have been  the case with the tragic figure of Peter Hatton-Bornshin.

At his inquest, the coroner paid tribute to  him by saying: ‘It is clear he had decided to avoid causing any distress or  grief to other people by taking his own life.’

But were Peter’s traumatic ‘fantasies’ really  about women?

A child protection campaigner told us this  week: ‘Peter was a victim at Elm Guest House in the Seventies — but by the time  I knew of him in the Eighties, he was an abuser.

‘He had been groomed as a child, but he  crossed the line at some stage: as an adult, he was organising the abuse of  kids. By the mid-1980s we were pushing for his arrest. We weren’t treating him  as a victim any more.’

The clock is ticking on Britain’s dirty secrets……….

  1. One big celeb already named in the press but nothing will be told of his ?????????????? until he is dead, 30 years ago i was told Scotland Yard knew of Savil and X but nothing can be said until they are dead because THEY RAISE MANY MILLIONS FOR THE BIG CHARITIES so we have to wait for the next one to die, and when he does the world will say how terrible then forget all.
    it would appear all is kept quite on the SIR’S LORD’S MP’S until they die so the naming of people who are not so well known in the media is ok because whilst people read of lesser known who ever it leaves the big names free to continue to abuse the kids in care. If only the world knew that the British children have never been safe since dot.
