If you’re looking for a true British hero, who put his career and life on the line in his fight to protect children from VIP abuse rings, then look no further than the late, great, Geoffrey Dickens, MP.
The man was a bloody legend who never gave up his campaign to expose the truth about the filthy establishment who run this country.
Geoffrey Dickens stumbled across evidence of the horrific paedophile scandal, linked to Parliament.
Despite informing the powers that be about the alleged abuse, no investigation ever took place and as per their usual MO, Dickens himself became the target of a dirty tricks campaign to ensure his silence.
According to the Independent:
“ A burly veteran of scores of amateur boxing bouts, the Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens was best known during his bustling 16-year career in Parliament as a pugnacious right-winger who supplied “hang ‘em and flog ‘em” quotes to the tabloids.
Eighteen years after his death, however, the backbencher’s reputation as a political lightweight is being revised in the wake of a Scotland Yard investigation which is exhuming a scandal long buried in the Westminster of Margaret Thatcher’s premiership.
He may have stumbled upon an Establishment paedophile ring in the early 1980s – and that his efforts to expose a cover-up left him in fear of his life. Dickens told fellow MPs that after warning of the existence of the network, he had received threatening phone calls and been burgled twice. He also claimed he had been placed on a “hit-list”, he told the House of Commons in a little-noticed speech.
For four years between 1981 and 1985, Dickens railed in Parliament against a paedophile ring which he claimed was connected to a trade in child pornography, then controlled by gangsters.
In 1981 Dickens had used Parliamentary privilege to name a diplomat and MI6 operative, Sir Peter Hayman as a pederast and demanded the Attorney General explain why he had escaped prosecution over the discovery of violent pornography on a London bus two years previously.
Two years later, in 1983, he warned a paedophile network involved “big, big names – people in positions of power, influence and responsibility” and threatened to expose them in Parliament.
In 1984, he campaigned for the outlawing of Sir Peter’s Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) organisation. He also handed a dossier containing allegations of abuse of children in local authority care to the then Home Secretary, Leon Brittan.
After a 30-minute meeting with Sir Leon, Dickens said he had been “encouraged” but later expressed concern that the Cabinet Minister had not banned the PIE.
Last month Metropolitan Police began Operation Fernbridge into allegations that residents of a childrens home in Richmond, west London, were taken to the nearby Elm Guest House in Barnes, where they were abused. Pornography involving adults having sex with children was allegedly shot at the property and then circulated commercially.
Sir Peter was among the visitors to the property. Others, according to a list seized by Scotland Yard last month, were the late Liberal MP Cyril Smith, the former Russian spy Sir Anthony Blunt, a Sinn Fein politician, a Labour MP, and several Conservative politicians.
After neighbours complained about the arrival of children, the police raided the guesthouse in 1982 but the operation was mysteriously cut short. A 2003 investigation also failed.
During a debate on child abuse in the House of Commons on 29 November 1985, Dickens warned that paedophiles were “evil and dangerous,” adding child pornography generated “vast sums.”
He went on: “The noose around my neck grew tighter after I named a former high-flying British diplomat on the Floor of the House.
“Honourable Members will understand that where big money is involved and as important names came into my possession so the threats began.
“First, I received threatening telephone calls followed by two burglaries at my London home. Then, more seriously, my name appeared on a multi-killer’s hit list.”
The Independent can find no corroboration for Dickens’ comments.
However twenty-eight years after he made them, Scotland Yard officers kept their new investigation secret for weeks, fearful that it would be closed down like earlier inquiries.
In a blog on his website, the Labour MP Tom Watson – whose claims of a powerful paedophile network prompted the new inquiry – said that he had been advised by childcare experts who have tried to expose the scandal to be careful about his personal security. He has asked the Home Office for the dossier presented by Dickens to Sir Leon, but it has not yet been found.
Dickens does not appear to have raised the issue in the Commons again prior to his death in 1995. He told friends he was surprised he had never been made a minister.”
Quite why Leon Brittan never investigated the ‘ Dickens Dossier’ is a complete mystery.
It any case, it’s highly likely that Geoffrey Dickens was aware of another VIP paedophile ring operating at Dolphin Square.
The North Wales child-abuse scandal is linked to the ring and William Hague conveniently whitewashed a report into the scandal.
Hague himself used to live in Dolphin Square.
Many MI6 operatives have flats in the complex.
Some say they filmed child-abuse taking place there in order to blackmail the abusers
Iain Mills, an MP friend and ally of Dickens, also lived there.
Mills died of an apparent drink binge in his flat despite colleagues claiming he was a teetotaller.
” In 1997 , the Conservative MP for Meriden, Iain Mills, was found dead in his flat in Dolphin Square, Pimlico.
Initially there was confusion over the cause of death but Westminster’s creepy coroner Paul Knapman soon recorded a verdict of alcohol poisoning.
Iain Mills, MP, was apparently found with extreme levels of alcohol in his blood and was surrounded by gin bottles.
The media blamed his death on the stress of being a parliamentarian and it was assumed he’d had an alcohol problem for many years.
This was at odds however with members of his local constituency group who insisted he was a teetotaller and only ever drank orange juice during the 20 years they knew him.
His untimely death was soon forgotten and to this day is rarely mentioned, but that might be about to change.
Could it be that Iain Mills MP was aware of the high -level paedophile ring operating in Dolphin Square and this knowledge led to his death?
In 1993, an Early Day Motion was proposed by Ann Winterton MP entitled:
“Availability Of Obscene, Violent And Pornographic Material”
” That this House thanks Superintendent Michael Hames and his colleagues of the Obscene Publications Squad for acceding to the request of Right honourable and honourable Members to be available on 24th and 25th February in the Jubilee Room to provide honourable Members with the opportunity to discuss the difficulties which are experienced in dealing with the shockingly obscene, violent, and pornographic material which is increasingly available in the United Kingdom; expresses its revulsion that this material features the depiction of cruelty and violence towards women, children, and men, that it involves acts of bestiality as well as other acts of extreme depravity; expresses its profound concern that the Obscene Publications Act and associated legislation fails to provide the necessary legal framework for the prosecution of those who produce and disseminate this material; welcomes the acceptance by the Prime Minister that there are great and obvious problems in this area; and invites the Secretary of State for the Home Department to respond to the concern of honourable Members of this House, from all political parties, by undertaking a wide-ranging and thorough departmental review both of the provisions and of the enforcement of the law, and to make it his policy to bring forward proposals for legislation at an early date”
The EDM was signed by both Iain Mills MP and also Geoffrey Dickens MP.”
Did Iain Mills pass information to Dickens about the abuse ring at Dolphin Square?
Did this lead to his suspicious death?
According to the Mirror:
“ A Tory MP’s explosive file on an alleged VIP child abuse ring was destroyed by his family after his death, The Sunday People can reveal.
Geoffrey Dickens is believed to have made two copies of his 50-page dossier highlighting paedophiles in Britain’s establishment.
They contained claims of police corruption, names of senior politicians and are believed to have referred to the notorious Elm Guest House.
The B&B in south-west London is the subject of a police probe into allegations that VIPs went there to abuse
boys from a nearby care home.
The Sunday People revealed two weeks ago how Mr Dickens gave one dossier to the Home Office in 1984 but it apparently vanished.
The other was kept by the colourful MP for Littleborough and Saddleworth until his death at the age of 63.
That copy was ordered to be destroyed by Mr Dickens’ widow Norma who thought it was “too sensitive” to keep in the family home. She died last year.
Their son Barry, 49, told the Sunday People: “My father’s file was destroyed after his death in 1995 because my mother considered it too sensitive to have hanging around the house. It had been many years since Dad had handed the other copy to the Home Secretary and unfortunately nothing had come of it.”
It means the only possible remaining copy of the dossier could be with the Home Office.
MP Tom Watson has asked the Home Office to produce the dossier. Officials are still trying to track it down.
In 1981 Mr Dickens, then MP for Huddersfield West, had fired the first salvo against top paedophiles when he named diplomat Sir Peter Hayman. More information flooded in and in 1984 he handed his dossier to Home Secretary Leon Brittan.
The Home Office agreed to investigate the allegations and in the mean time Mr Dickens agreed not to use the protection of parliamentary privilege to name more paedophiles.
In 1985 the brave MP told the Commons he had received threatening phone calls and had been put on a “multi-killer’s hit list” following his campaign.
Shockingly it has taken 30 years for Mr Dickens’ allegations to be probed. At the time some MPs tried to undermine his campaign.
His son Barry said: “I see the new investigations as re-establishing my father’s reputation as a serious, campaigning politician.
“People like Jimmy Savile might have been rooted out three decades ago if the Government had acted on my father’s dossier”.
His granddaughter, Suzanne, left the following, moving comments:
” Well all I know is he was my Grandad. He was an amazing person. For his family and friends but also his country. I hope he gets the justice he deserves. He deserves an OBE, all he did was care and try and protect innocent children…from corrupt, dirty old men with disgusting, unforgivable lives trying to cover their tracks to protect their names and families….well what about mine!!?!
Justice will be done, the truth always comes out. And we will celebrate for my grandad, who we all miss”
It’s now time for Geoffrey Dickens to be recognised posthumously for his services in trying to expose child abuse in Britain.
He bloody well deserves it.
