Does ‘Nick’s’ conviction mean Jimmy Savile and Ted Heath are innocent? Yes, if you work for the British tabloid press. By Joseph de Búrca

The more excitable elements of the British media are in something of a frenzy after the conviction by a Newcastle jury of Carl Beech, 51, a former NHS manager, for perverting the course of justice, i.e. telling the police a pack of lies. He has been sentenced to 18 years imprisonment. Beech’s deceit relates to the existence of an alleged  murderous  VIP paedophile ring based around Westminster involving Jimmy Savile, the former British prime minister Ted Heath, 1970-74, and others. Beech’s allegations prompted a £2million-pound Scotland Yard inquiry. Beech claimed he was a survivor of an “establishment group” which including politicians, military figures and spies. Absurdly, he claimed the group kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered  boys in the 1970s and 1980s. This triggered an ill-fated probe that ended without a single arrest being made.

Beech was found guilty after a ten-week trial at Newcastle Crown Court of 12 counts of perverting the course of justice and one count of fraud over a £22,000 criminal compensation pay-out he received for the alleged abuse he suffered.

 ‘Nick’ also known as (aka) Carl Beech aka Stephen Anderson aka Carl Anderson aka Samuel Karlsson.

That Beech would be exposed as a liar amid a blaze of publicity was predicted by Village  years ago. Village  readers will be more familiar with Carl Beech as ‘Nick’. In the past he was a figure of anonymity merely referred to as ‘Nick’ in the UK press. His real name only emerged at the trial.

Beech  or someone acting in concert with him  concocted a series of grotesque lies about a VIP paedophile ring which murdered boys. An array of gullible hacks in the British media initially lapped up the claims and splashed them all over the pages of their newspapers. They have now flipped and are in a frenzy of condemnation after his conviction on 22 July 2019 for deceit.

No one, we are now told, can now believe a word Nick/Beech has ever said.  Accounts of child abuse perpetrated by the likes of Ted Heath can now be dismissed as nonsense according to the former PM’s supporters because Nick made allegations about him. What next? Jimmy Savile is innocent too. Sir Cyril Smith was a paragon of virtue?

Is there more to Nick the Deceiver than meets the eye, a lot more perhaps?

 

RICHARD KERR SPOTTED ‘NICK’ AS A FRAUD FROM THE OUTSET

Richard Kerr, who was a genuine victim of sex abuse, concluded Beech was a fraud years ago. When Beech made efforts to contact him, he was rebuffed by Kerr. Had Kerr fallen for Beech’s lies, he  would now probably be the victim of tabloid derision.

Instead Kerr was subjected to intimidation to get him to shut up. In December 2017 Village reported that a letter purporting to come from the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) had been sent to him. The UFF had nothing to do with the letter so we instead referred to the authors as the “Paedophile Protection League (PPL)”. The letter was sent to Kerr in 2016.

Kerr, who lives in Dallas, Texas, was a resident at Williamson House in the early and mid-1970s, and later at Kincora (1975-77). He was abused at both homes. He was later abused in England by various highborn lowlifes, including Sir Peter Hayman, the former Deputy Chief of MI6, who infamously left paedophile material on a London bus whence it was picked up by the police; and a senior and highly influential member of Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet.

Before we turn to the so-called ‘UFF’ threatening letter, a little additional context will assist in explicating the underlying menace of it: Richard Kerr was a close friend of Steven Waring who was also a resident at Kincora. He committed suicide by plunging into the sea from the Belfast-Liverpool Monarch Ferry in 1977 rather than suffer any further abuse. Kerr has been haunted by his death ever since. Like Kerr, Waring had been taken out of Kincora and subjected to vile abuse on both sides of the Irish Sea.

In November 2016 Kerr received the following anonymous letter:

“DEAR RICHARD,

HAVING READ AN ONLINE ARTICLE ABOUT YOU TODAY CONCERNING YOUR BEHAVIOUR IN LONDON IN 2015, A GROUP OF SURVIVORS HAVE RESEARCHED AND DISCUSSED YOUR ALLEGATIONS.

IT IS OF MANY UK-BASED SURVIVORS OPINION THAT YOU ARE PLAYING A GAME AND WORKING FOR THE ABUSERS STILL.

THERE ARE FIRST HAND ACCOUNTS OF YOUR BEHAVIOUR IN DOLPHIN SQUARE AND IN KINCORA INCLUDING ACCOUNTS OF YOU ACTING AS FACILITATOR FOR ABUSERS.

THERE ARE ALSO ALLEGATIONS AND ACCOUNTS OF YOU ACTIVELY TRYING TO DISCREDIT OTHER SURVIVORS INCLUDING THE SUSPICION THAT YOU IN FACT KILLED STEVEN ON THE BOAT, RATHER THAN THE STORY YOU TELL OF HIM COMMITTING SUICIDE.

WE DO NOT HAVE ANYONE IN TEXAS TO ACT AGAINST YOU.

YOU HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL AND ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT A THREAT, AS A GROUP WE WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER WELCOME IN THE UK OR IN NORTHERN IRELAND AND IF YOU ARE SEEN, ACTIVE SERVICE UNITS OF THE ULSTER FREEDOM FIGHTERS AND THEIR FRIENDS WILL FORCIBLY REMOVE YOU TO AN AIRPORT.

YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY A SURVIVOR OF ABUSE SO BY OUR OWN CODE WE CANNOT ORDER ANYTHING MORE; HOWEVER FEELINGS ARE RUNNING SO HIGH ABOUT YOU THAT WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY AND WELLBEING IN THE UK OR NORTHERN IRELAND”.

The anonymous letter was posted from south East Anglia. There is, however, little or no mystery about the identity of its true author.

Richard Kerr had made a number of trips to Ireland and the UK before he received the letter. During these trips he was – as he puts it himself – “hijacked” by some very unsavoury characters whom he instinctively distrusted and to whom he decided not to provide his address in Texas. This group pretended they were interested in exposing the VIP paedophile ring but in reality wanted to find out what Kerr was going to say about it and discredit him.

They made the monumental error of taking Kerr for a fool when in fact they were the amateurs .

Instead of providing his own address, Kerr gave them the address of a trusted confidant who lived on the North Central Express Way in Dallas. Yes, you guessed it: the ‘PPL’ threatening letter was subsequently sent to the confidant.

The North Central Express Way address was also provided to the BBC’s ‘Panorama’ programme. However, since the staff at ‘Panorama’ are not known for sending vile threatening letters to child-abuse survivors, the odds must be high that it was sent by the ‘PPL’ or their allies in MI5/6.

In addition, two others were provided with the address, both of whom can be discounted as the author of the letter.

Why would the ‘PPL’ go to such lengths in an effort to intimidate and upset Richard Kerr? Why go to all this trouble if the VIP vice-ring had never existed? The letter is consistent with the fact that it was and is still being protected.

Is there a connection between the ‘PPL’ and Carl Beech?

 

TOM WATSON AND CARL BEECH 

One person who was taken in by Beech was the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Tom Watson. He is now on the receiving end of severe criticism for this. In fairness to Watson, he acted out of genuine concern for victims of child abuse. Ironically, one of those who abused Kerr in London back in the 1980s  while he was still a resident of Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast  has recently voiced criticism of Watson over the Beech affair.

Arguably, Watson deserves much praise when the overall picture is taken into account. He was one of a handful of MPs who had the courage to take up the thorny issue of VIP abuse in the House of Commons. Watson did the world a service by highlighting the egregious case of the paedeophile Peter Righton in October 2012 in the House of Commons. Righton was subsequently convicted of child abuse. Righton was part of an abuse network that included Dr Morris Fraser who abused boys all over the world and was a member of the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring of which Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast was a part.  In his defence to the criticism he has received over the Beech scandal, Watson has stated that, ‘For decades victims of child sexual abuse were ignored or failed by the criminal justice system. I hope this one fraudster does not take us back to a time where people are too frightened to report serious crimes against innocent children’. How many children were saved from Righton and others by Watson’s intervention? Probably quite a lot. Watson can be proud of that fine achievement.

 

THE DIETRICH GAMBIT

Over the last three years Village  has been warning that Nick was probably a cog in a devious plot by the remnants of a VIP abuse network to distract the public from their repulsive  crimes by getting puppets like him to make  absurd claims that were so utterly irrational no one would believe them and thereby taint genuine VIP sex abuse survivors with the same brush. We called it the ‘Dietrich Gambit’  after the celebrated film based on Agatha Christie’s ingenious play Witness for the Prosecution.  In that film Marlene Dietrich played a cunning witness for the prosecution who testified at a murder trial with the premeditated intention of being exposed as a liar and thereby discredit the prosecution. Village  published  its suspicions that equally dark forces were conducting a comparable gambit in an effort to  control and manipulate the public perception of the VIP sex abuse scandal in the UK.  This was done, we speculated,  with the tacit – if not outright – support of MI5 and MI6 who have a vested interest in covering up what went on at Kincora Boys’ Home and other institutions in Britain and Ireland where children were exploited by VIPs. For a start, they lied to the Hart Inquiry about their practice of sexual blackmail; see the article  Hart Attack and  the array of stories about the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring  on this website for further details.  We raised the possibility that these dark forces had spent years promoting manifest hoaxers like Nick. These people produced remarkably similar and far fetched yarns which were published by the media. We speculated that the strategy all along was to expose their lies at given points in time and thereby paint all claims of VIP sex abuse made by survivors as dubious if not unhinged.  Nick’s conviction and the flurry of media attention around it may be the latest success of this possible plot.

Prof Alexis Jay

One of the targets of the presumed Dietrich Gambit we suspect is afoot must be Professor Alexis Jay, Chair of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA). How can she now make a finding that the police or security services ignored – let alone protected VIP paedophiles in the 1970s and 1980s – without being eviscerated by the tabloid British press? IICSA may as well pack up and go home insofar as the tabloids and their readers are concerned.

At this point in time, it would appear that Nick has succeeded in spraying credible abuse survivors such as Richard and Alan Kerr with the same stench of dishonesty that he emits.

 Paul Gambaccini and Cliff Richard. Two talented and honourable men who have done much for charity during their careers. They deserved a lot better. Are they victims of a sinister plot by a cabal of padeophiles?

If Nick was part of a sinister Dietrich Gambit, it would offer a coherent explanation for the otherwise senseless behaviour of the British police and the BBC during the fiasco that engulfed Cliff Richard, a patently innocent man falsely accused of sexual wrongdoing. The reaction of the British public to the outrageous ill-treatment of such a beloved figure as Cliff Richard only served to diminish and undermine concern about VIP abuse rings. With the conviction of Nick, that outrage went into overdrive. The story competed with the bombastic exploits of the newly installed Boris Johnson as British PM for the lead headlines in the British tabloid press. In many instances, Johnson’s activities took second place in the pecking order.

There is a sinister pattern here as a parallel effort was made on the internet to portray Cliff Richard as a visitor to the infamous boy brothel at Elm Guest House. He was meant to have used the absurd name ‘Kitty’ on these visits. Richard never went near the place nor anywhere like it. Richard in fact spends an enormous amount of his free time working for charities and deserved a lot better than the abhorrent treatment that was meted out to him. Happily, there isn’t a sane mind in the UK that now believes any of the slurs hurled against him. Was the person or group behind the assault on Richard’s reputation linked to Nick/Beech and the PPL which sent the threatening letter to Richard Kerr in the name of the UFF?

 

THE CASE AGAINST TED HEATH

Already there is a renewed attempt to salvage the reputation of the former Tory PM, Ted Heath. This despite the careful, considered and credible report by the Wiltshire Police concerning the abuse of boys perpetrated by Heath. Why? Because Nick made daft claims about Heath therefore Heath must be innocent.  If you follow the logic of that argument, Jimmy Savile must be innocent too.

 Savile and Heath

The case against Ted Heath does not rest on a word uttered by Beech. In August 2015 the Wiltshire Police launched ‘Operation Conifer’ into allegations that Heath was a paedophile. The force determined that there were substantial grounds to suspect him of child abuse. As a matter of law the force was not entitled to reach any conclusions about the potential guilt of Heath and it did not. The furthest it could go was to state that if Heath were alive, he would have faced further questioning about the accusations levelled against him. Mindful of this, the force has found that Heath would have faced questions under criminal caution relating to:

  • 1 incident of rape of a male 16;
  • 3 incidents of indecent assault on a male under 16;
  • 4 indecent assaults on a male under 14;
  • 2 indecent assaults on a male over 16.

The investigation spanned the period 1956-92. None of these incidents took place while Heath was Prime Minister, 1970-74.

There are some very real victims of this whole nasty mess. They include not only Cliff Richard but also Lord Brammal and Paul Gambaccini, all of whom were investigated by the British police on the basis of grotesque claims made by manifest liars and fantasists. The common denominator in each case is a British police force which – on the surface – seems to have lost control of its senses.

 

WHO FUNDED BEECH’S EXPENDITURE IN SWEDEN?

Hopefully IICSA will deploy its considerable powers to find out who Beech associated with over the last decade. What do his phone records reveal? Did he receive illicit payments? It has now emerged that Nick planned to make a new life for himself under an assumed identity in Sweden after his lies were detected and he faced a slew of criminal charges.  He purchased a riverside property in the village of Overkalix near the Artic Circle in the name of Stephen Anderson. Did he have a passport or fraudulent legal documents in the name of Anderson? If so, how did he get them? According to a report in  The Daily Telegraph‘Seemingly flush with cash [in Overkalix], Beech, who was given £22,000 from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority in the wake of his claims of abuse, did not hesitate to pay 450 Krona (£38) for a haircut, £84 for a tin of paint, or £1,350 to fix the air conditioning in his car.’ The Sun is reporting how the house cost £17,000 and that Beech planned to buy a ‘large house across the road plus several cabins by the riverside, including a luxurgy villa‘. A local plumber called Patrik Elemalm has revealed how he installed a new bathroom and renovated the pipework for £4,500.  According to Par Andersson, the budget for the villa was £85,000. In the event,  Nick went on the run under yet another name, Samuel Karlsson, from an extradition warrant. He was finally caught and returned to the UK to face justice.

The £22,000 from the Criminal Injuries cannot explain the money he spent in Sweden. Beech spent £10,000 of the compensation as a deposit on a white Ford Mustang convertible. The full cost of the vehicle was £34,000. He also appears to have spent most of his life in debt and lived in a rented accommodation. While he and his former wife had once lived in a house they had acquired with help from his mother they had been unable to maintain it. At the time of his divorce he was living in a house for which he paid  £1,100 rent per month. Beech’s wife told the BBC’s Panorama that he consistently spent beyond his means.

As someone who did not possess property or other valuable assets which he could have sold and was always in debt, the source of the money he spent in Sweden is deeply troubling. Where did he get it all?

There is more: before he fled, he had become bored living in his new house – presumably while the works were taking place – and on 16 February 2019 checked into Room 110 at The Grand Artic Hotel for six nights where he told the staff he was ‘sick of microwave meals’. Significantly, he checked in under the name ‘Carl Anderson’ and, according to The Telegraph,  ‘paid by card‘. Does this mean he was able to get a credit card in yet another false name. If so, how?

BEECH’S COLLECTION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

There are other deeply disturbing questions about Beech. The police found 342 child abuse images on his computer some of which were rated at the A level, i.e. the most serious category on the scale. After the police found the images, Beech tried to blame his teenage son for downloading them. He has also been convicted of spying on a teenager while he urinated. He videoed the boy with the use of a secret video camera. His long suffering former wife has disclosed how Beech had very little interest in pursuing a sex life with her. Indeed, he went years without having sex with her.

Beech was well able to hide his true nature. He gave talks to children as young as five about the dangers of child abuse for the UK National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) and attended workshops attended by young children. He has visited dozens of primary schools in Herefordshire as part of the NSPCC  Speak Out Stay Safe  programme. According to Simon Murphy of  The Guardian  he ‘was also the governor of two schools…In total he volunteered at 33 schools for the NSPCC”. In the 1990s he worked as a paediatric nurse on a children’s ward in London. His former wife has revealed that she had believed he ‘loved children. He went straight onto a paediatric ward when he qualified, then did his sick children’s nurse training’. Also that  when ‘he was a student nurse, he used to go off and help at a school with children who had difficulty reading.”

Bearing all of the foreging in mind, it is reasonable to ask:   was Beech part of a paedophile network  which supplied him with the photographs found in his computer? Worse still, was  he part of a network which recruited him to make his dishonest claims so as to protect a group of VIP paedophile higher up the food chain? Village  is aware that money is no object to at least two VIPs who abused boys in the past and have provided ample funding to at least one of their former victims to remain silent about their crimes.

 

POLICE INCOMPETENCE?

 The police believed ‘Nick’ who claimed Heath had a double bed in a cabin on his yacht The Morning Cloud. Just where did they think he fitted it? In reality the yacht had hammocks. Photographs of the vessel were readily available on the internet.

How could the British police have believed a word Nick said? The ten-week trial exposed the transparent and idiotic nature of his allegations. Could the British police really be that stupid? He claimed he had been abused by Heath on a double bed on his yacht. Yet Heath’s rather famous boat The Morning Cloud  was far too small for a double bed and merely had hammocks.

Beech provided a picture showing where he had been beaten and claimed he had scars to prove it. Yet he has no scars. Still the police believed him.

 

WHO WAS THE ‘HIGH-LEVEL’ FIGURE WHO TOLD THE POLICE NOT TO LOOK AT BEECH’S LAPTOP COMPUTER FOR TWO YEARS WHILE HE CONTINUED TO EXPLOIT CHILD PORN ON IT? 

The broadcast journalist Alastair Jackson was able to deduce after  making one phone call that Beech was a liar. He has just published a story in the Daily Mail (28 July 2019) entitled: ‘Police tried to block TV show that told the truth: BBC Panorama producer says all it took to expose Carl Beech’s lurid fantasy was a single phone call ‘. In the piece, Jackson explains how one of Beech’s ‘central claims was that a well-connected paedophile had knocked down and killed one of his school friends. Unlike the police, who seemed intent on taking Beech’s claims at face value, we decided to do some elementary checks. We discovered a possible name for the purported victim of this hit-and-run and traced him to Australia. When I dialled the number, I expressed my surprise that he hadn’t been crushed to death. ‘No, mate, alive and well,’ he replied. It would be many months before detectives from Operation Midland flew half-way round the world to see him’.

Jackson’s research was for a broadcast on the BBC’s Panorama which was eventually aired under the title,  ‘The VIP Paedophile Ring: What’s the truth?’  Jackson has revealed that, ‘Towards the end of 2014, I went to Scotland Yard to discuss our investigation into abuse claims against high profile figures. I asked a press officer if the Met wanted to take part in the documentary. I thought the force might at least want to point out the difficulties it faced with historic allegations. The answer was no.’

What is even more disturbing is Jackson’s revelation that the Yard’s ‘fear of losing Beech’s confidence was, I understand, behind a high-level decision not to analyse his computers and phones – a decision that put children at risk. For two years, until the case was taken over by a different force, Beech was able to indulge his interest in photographing young boys and fuelling a market of horrific child sex abuse images’.

 

THE POLICE TOLD FIELD MARSHAL LORD BRAMALL  THAT THEY KNEW HE WAS INNOCENT

It has now emerged that Field Marshal Lord Bramall was visited by  Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the Chief of Scotland Yard, after the inquiry into Beech’s lies had come to an end. Hogan-Howe told Bramall that his officers had known that he was innocent but could not clear his name because they ‘had to look like they were investigating‘. According to an interview with the Field Marshal in The Sunday Times, the police chief had said that, ‘We knew almost at once that none of these appalling things applied to you – but we could not stop making you a suspect or take you out of the investigation for another 10 months because we, the Metropolitan police, would have been accused of not investigating properly and giving people in high places preferential treatment.’

 Field Marshal Lord Bramall being interrogated. It now transpires the police knew – not believed – he was innocent all along. Yet they pursued him for PR reasons, or so they allege. Yet, if this is true, why did they treat him with utter contempt? Their PR excuse makes no sense. What is the real reason? 

If they were merely going through the motions, they had a particularly nasty way of doing it. The distinguished soldier, a veteran of D-Day, was questioned twice over the alleged rape and torture  of children. They even asked his daughter if he could be trusted around his grandchildren.  They searched  his home while his seriously-ill wife lay in bed. She died without seeing his name cleared. ‘I think it [the Beech inquiry] probably shortened her life,’ Bramall’s solicitor has stated. None of this smacks of a PR exercise designed to appease the supposed possible critics of the inquiry.

Is the real truth that Scotland Yard was put under pressure by dark forces inside the Establishment?  The very worst case scenario is that Scotland Yard was manipulated into pursuing the  probe into the Field Marshal – whom they knew to be innocent – by the same cabal in MI5 (Home Office) and MI6 (Foreign Office) who lied to the Hart Inquiry in 2016 about their knowledge of child abuse networks and their use of sexual blackmail. Are there figures lurking in the shadows of these organisations who were so worried that the truth about Kincora and the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring might emerge that they were prepared to throw a veritable National Treasure and war hero such as Lord Bramall to the wolves to cover-up the crimes of their predecessors?

Bearing these unbelievable excuses in mind, does the Met’s explanation for not examining Beech’s computer for two years  so as not to upset him seem credible? Recall that it was a ‘high-level decision’ according to Alastair Jackson of Panorama. Who issued that particular direction?

 

BEECH MAY NEVER HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF SEX ABUSE AT ALL

Beech was sentenced to 18 years imprisonment on 26 July 2019. If he was indeed part of a complex plot to discredit VIP child abuse survivors and it involved the darker elements of MI5 and MI6 (including those who lied to the Hart Inquiry in 2016), he never had any chance of being allowed to settle in Sweden under an assumed name as he may have hoped. Instead, he was always destined to go on trial and become a media sensation. If this speculation is accurate, and he decides to reveal all at some stage over the next decade, no one will believe him.

In the very worst case scenario, Beech may have been an abuser and never a victim at all. He may have been bribed and cajoled into making his fetid claims by people who have something over him and access to ample funds. The carrot was the money he had in Sweden, the stick held over him was proof of some sort of wrongdoing, perhaps the possession of child pornography or something worse.

As matters stand, a lot of the nastier elements in Britain must now be cock-a-hoop. They include Beech’s presumed puppet masters, MI5, MI6, the pederast who abused Richard Kerr while he was still a resident at Kincora not to mention the members of the various overlapping paedophile networks which Jimmy Savile frequented. Combined, they seem to have convinced the British media that: {i} a string of fantasists including Nick, {ii} none of whom knew each other, {iii} concocted absurd stories with similar themes by sheer coincidence  {iv} all of which were treated as credible by credulous police forces who {v} all overreacted in a grossly unprofessional manner to the detriment of innocent men with high profiles such as Richard, Brammal and Gambaccini and that none of this involved manipulation by any hidden force.

Will Prof. Jay prove as gullible as the u-turning press? She has granted Nick ‘core’ participation rights at her inquiry i.e. full legal representation. Will she grill him about the reason for his lies or will she use his lack of credibility to help dismiss the existence of a ring of paedophiles who were protected by the State and included figures such as Ted Heath, Sir Peter Morrison, Sir Cyril Smyth, Lord Greville Janner, William van Straubenzee and others who abused children with impunity?

 

MEET ‘LOUIS’, THE NEW ‘NICK’

Now that the Beech is a spent docket, another figure has arrived on the scene to do exactly what he has done:  beguile the media with false claims which will be exposed later as false and thereby bring further discredit on genuine abuse surviving whistle blowers.  Village  will return to this story shortly. We will be calling this conman ‘Louis’ in forthcoming stories. His main target seems to be Prof. Jay’s inquiry.

  (Left) Queen Elizabeth and Lord Janner. (Right) Alan Kerr as a boy in Northern Ireland where he was abused by a string of paedophiles.

UPDATE ON ALAN KERR

Village  has learnt that Alan Kerr (the brother of Richard Kerr) has also been granted ‘core’ participation at IICSA. Readers who are not familiar with his story are invited to read  The Boy on the Meat Rack   and   Out of the Frying Pan and into the Fire  about his appalling life. Alan Kerr was abused by many men including Lord Greville Janner. On one occasion Janner took Alan Kerr to see  The Prince and the Pauper  at a theatre in London where they sat behind Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson who were then engaged to be married.  Their engagement had taken place on 19 March 1986. Prince Andrew told him that he was going to open a hospital in Belfast. These dates are significant because they help identify Kerr’s age at the time he was being abused by Janner. We can now update that story originally published in the  Out of the Frying Pan  story. Prince Andrew visited the City Hospital and then went to Hillsborough with NI Secretary Tom King on 25 June 1986, a date that was not available at the time the original story was published.  He was married on 23 July. This means that Kerr was aged 17 or had possibly just turned 18 at the time of the performance as he was born on 8 May of 1968. Village  had erred on the side of caution when it published  Out of the Frying Pan   indicating that Kerr was possibly in his early twenties at the time. Janner’s defenders still persist in the claim he had no interest in young males.

UPDATE ON RICHARD KERR

Unfortunately, Richard Kerr has not been granted ‘core’ participation rights at IICSA, at least not at this time. IICSA, it would appear, has no interest in the fact he was abused by Sir Peter Hayman of MI6 and a number of politicians including one of Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet ministers.

However, Kerr is suing the RUC/PSNI and certain Government bodies including the Department of Health, the Northern Ireland Office and the Home Office, over the sexual abuse he suffered on both sides of the Irish Sea. Last May he lodged High Court papers in Belfast concerning the paedophile ring that subjected him to years of rape and molestation in a campaign covered up by the State, i.e. the network this magazine has been referring to as the Anglo-Irish Vice Ring in articles published by us since 2017.

Kerr’s legal action involves claims for assault and battery, misfeasance in public office, breach of statutory duty and negligence.

The case will involve the abuse he suffered at Williamson House in north Belfast, Kincora and a later period at Millisle Borstal in Co Down and elsewhere.

Kerr will make the case that all investigations and inquiries to date have failed to expose the full abuse at Kincora.
