[Reproach by Steve Messham from Wrexham]
Lord (Alistair) McAlpine’s name circulated widely
online after Steve Messham, a former resident of the Bryn
Estyn home in Wrexham, told Newsnight he
had been abused by a high-ranking Thatcher-era Tory.
After the Guardian newspaper named Lord McAlpine but
reported that he had been a victim of mistaken
identity, the peer released a strongly-worded
statement addressing the “slurs”.
[Had visited Wrexham only once and in company -
never saw any children's home - never was in
He said he had visited Wrexham “only once”
and that was in the company of an agent from
Conservative Central Office.
“I have never been to the children’s home in
Wrexham, nor have I ever visited any children’s home,
reform school or any other institution of a similar
nature,” he said.
[McAlpine never wears luxury items]
“I have never stayed in a hotel in or near Wrexham, I
did not own a Rolls Royce, have never had a ‘Gold
card’ or ‘Harrods card’ and never wear aftershave, all
of which have been alleged.
[Another man is the culprit]
“I did not sexually abuse Mr Messham or any other
residents of the children’s home in Wrexham.”
He added: "I wish to make it clear that I do not
suggest that Mr Messham is malicious in making the
allegations of sexual abuse about me. He is referring
to a terrible period of his life in the 1970's or
1980's and what happened to him will have affected him
"If he does think I am the man who abused him all
those years ago I can only suggest that he is mistaken
and that he has identified the wrong person."
[Another member from McAlpine family - who lived
for years near Wrexham]
A local councillor who was also a victim of abuse at
Bryn Estyn told The Guardian that he believed a
different member of the McAlpine family may have been
mistaken for Lord McAlpine.
Several sources have suggested that Mr Messham may
have been referring to Jimmie McAlpine, who chaired
the building firm Alfred McAlpine Ltd, and who lived
in Chester, near Wrexham.
[Mister X. with "several different motor cars" -
"wait for him" - dead Jimmie McAlpine with car
collection - "called Tom"]
The Waterhouse inquiry into the abuse allegations
recorded that, according to Mr Messham’s statement to
the police, “X (the letter used to hide the identity
of the McAlpine family member) had several different
motor cars and would wait for him at the bottom of
Bryn Estyn Lane.”
Jimmie McAlpine, who is now dead, had one of the largest
private collections of cars in Britain.
Reporters covering the inquiry at the time concluded
that Lord McAlpine could not be the person referred to
as the abuser because Mr Messham said his abuser was
dead, whereas Lord McAlpine is alive. And when a Times
reporter put Lord McAlpine’s name to Messham in 1996,
he said his abuser was in fact called Tom.
[Another ex-member of children's home only saw a
photo not more]
Another boy who originally appeared to corroborate the
accusation later confirmed that he had only been shown
a photograph of Lord McAlpine by a journalist
subsequently, and said this was his sole knowledge of
[Lord McAlpine claims that rumors are spreading
without control by media agents]
In his statement, Lord McAlpine said: "Over the last
several days it has become apparent to me that a
number of ill - or uninformed commentators have been
using blogs and other internet media outlets to accuse
me of being the senior Conservative Party figure from
the days of Margaret Thatcher's leadership who is
guilty of sexually abusing young residents of a
children's home in Wrexham, North Wales in the 1970's
"It has additionally become apparent to me that a
number of broadcasters and newspapers have, without
expressly naming me, also been alleging that a senior
Conservative Party figure from that time was guilty of
or suspected of being guilty of the sexual abuse of
residents of this children's home.
"It is obvious that there must be a substantial
number of people who saw that I had been identified in
the internet publications as this guilty man and who
subsequently saw or heard the broadcasts or read the
newspapers in question and reasonably inferred that
the allegation of guilt in those broadcasts and
newspapers attached to me....
"I therefore have decided that in order to mitigate,
if only to some small extent, the damage to my
reputation I must publicly tackle these slurs and set
the record straight."

Er wolle jetzt auch eine Einigung mit

wants to get off this crises. With Tory
politician McAlpine there is reached fast an
aggreement about a compensation. Juridical
consequences for the wrong report about
child abuse should have an end with this.
But there are new details about
investigations in cases of abuse within BBC.
After a wrong BBC report about an alleged
connection of a politician in a child abuse
scandal the radio station pays a compensation.
Tory politician Alistair McAlpine receives
185,000 Pounds as BBC was communicating. This
sum corresponds to an aggreement with the
politician after he had made a complaint for
calumnation, so the report.
This "comprehensive" payment would stay for
"bad reproaches" which were presented in
public by mistake. And also the costs should
be repayed to McAlpine. He had been working in
the Thatcher government. Add to this a
declaration will be read before the court in
which BBC is apologizing.
Affair about Savile is going on
McAline is welcoming this "fast and early
agreement with BBC". He also wanted to reach
more agreements with more organizations "which
had published calumnations", and also singular
persons who had used short message service
Twitter for spreading.
Aside this scandal BBC is connected with
another affair about child abuse. IN this case
the culprit is BBC star moderator Jimmy Savile
who is said having abused children for years.
Savile had died last year with 84. BBC news
portal "Newsnight" (in which also the wrong
information about McAlpine was given) is
reproached having guarded indications about
the Savile case too long. Add to this there
are reproaches that Savile had been covered by
BBC staff members for years.
Travis free on bail
In this affair there was a fourth detention
now. The suspicious person is a BBC collegue
of Savile, 67 years old ex radio DJ Dave Lee
Travis, according to British media. Police
only spoke about a man of about 60 years with
reproaches of sexual abuse crimes. As was
published in the evening this man was set free
on bail after his statement.
According to media reports Travis was working
with Savile for 25 years in BBC Radio 1 before
he had changed to BBC Program "World Service
Network". Until today there is no indication
that Travis was charged with pedophily. But
two women are charging him having been
harassed by him in the 1970s and 1980s, but
Travis is rejecting this harshly.
Savile affair is striking Great Britain since
weaks because threre are new facts coming out
without end. Also three prominent persons were
detained in this case, among them ex Glam rock
star Gary Glitter. Also these persons were set
free on bail.

charging the BBC moderator.
"He was like a carnivore, he was
always doing something, and he was

report describes that BBC
moderator Jimmy Savile was without
any scruples presenting the facts
about the scandal.
During more than 50 years the
nowaday's dead Savile committed
214 sexual crimes, with 34 rapes -
so the report published on Friday.
Savile was abusing his reputation
chasing his victims - and the
youngest was only 8 years old, BBC
Savile died in October 2011 with
84 years. His show "Top of the
Pops" in the 1960s was well known.
Later the children serie "Jim'll
Fix It" was created where he
fullfilled the dreams of young
people. And he was rated as a
confidant of ex Prime Minister
"Without any comparison"
"One can really say that he was
cheating the nation", criminal
commissioner Peter Spindler said
about Savile. "He was hiding
himself from all eyes, but nobody
could do something about it." The
dimensionof the cases of child
abuse would be "without any
comparison in the United Kingdom".
According to the police report
Savile was making troubles in
hospitals and schools, where he
often had his charity work. "He
could to and let what he wanted",
chief investigator David Gray
said. "He could simply go to a
school and ask: 'Somebody wants to
get to know me?' " And Savile was
electing precisely the weakest,
Gray said. "He was clever enough
to elect those children who never
would say anything."
TV documentation provoking
But some victims of Savile were
reporting the crimes. Many went to
the police in 2003, in 2007 and in
2008 already. But the affair was
coming up only when TV channel ITV
was presenting a report in October
2012 where suspected victims of
Savile were talking.
The authorities were forced to
listen better to the victims,
Peter Saunders from the
Association of Abused Victims
said. "I want that we will forget
Jimmy Savile. He is not worth
being remembered. But I want that
we will remember the victims."

Mr Watson has now tabled a Parliamentary
question asking Home Secretary Theresa May
to track down the Dickens dossier and make
it available to MPs.
Mr Dickens, who died in 1995 aged 63,
spent years collecting his evidence. The
colourful MP was convinced he had solid
proof of a VIP paedophile network with
links to Parliament, Buckingham Palace and
other areas of public life.
It is believed he handed at least two
dossiers to the Government.
In 1981 he used Parliamentary privilege
to name diplomat Sir Peter Hayman as a
Three years earlier an envelope
containing obscene literature and written
material had been found on a London bus.
A police investigation found vile
correspondence between Sir Peter and
several other people.
But no prosecution was brought against
the diplomat, who worked for MI6 and was
High Commissioner to Canada.
The police uncovered Hayman’s links to
the infamous Paedophile Information
The twisted pressure group lobbied for
child-sex perverts to be given equal
rights and for the age of consent to be
lowered to four.
In 1983, Mr Dickens said there were “big,
big names – people in positions of power,
influence and responsibility” and
threatened to expose them in Parliament if
no action was taken against PIE.
The MP handed a one-million strong
petition against the group to Home
Secretary Mr Brittan.
In 1984 he revealed he had called for Mr
Brittan to investigate the allegations in

Child killer: Rapist Sidney Cooke.
Police are preparing to arrest a
former Tory Cabinet minister after a
woman came forward to claim she had
been raped by him as a girl.
Detectives are also investigating
claims that he abused boys.
We can reveal that the former minister
is suspected of being part of a VIP
paedophile ring that was regularly
handed boys by child rapist and killer
Sidney Cooke for vile sex orgies.
The former high-ranking MP, who we
cannot name, is under investigation by
Scotland Yard’s paedophile unit.
Sources close to the probe gave details
of the new allegations to the Sunday
Mirror and investigative news website
A former detective who worked on the
original investigation into Cooke told
the Sunday Mirror that the minister was
among those alleged to have been
photographed in a 1986 police
surveillance on premises where boys had
been dropped off.
Others allegedly included Jimmy
Savile, MP Cyril
Smith and top judges – though none
of them were ever arrested.
Cooke, 85 – dubbed Britain’s most
notorious paedophile after he tortured
and killed 14-year-old Jason Swift in
1985 – would pick the unsuspecting
teenage boys up off the streets around
He would drive them to locations across
North London where paedophiles lay in
wait to repeatedly rape them.
Last week the former officer, who
worked on Operation Orchid which
convicted Cooke and his gang, said they
had taken pictures of the minister.
The former officer said up to 16 high
profile figures were due to be arrested.
But the day before they were to be
carried out detectives were told the
operation had been disbanded.
The revelation means Scotland Yard knew
about allegations concerning the Cabinet
Minister and Savile in 1986 but did
nothing about it, instead choosing to
cover up the claims.
A source told Exaro last week that
senior officers, including Commander
Peter Spindler, the head of the
Paedophile Unit, have had a secret
briefing on preparations to arrest the
It is understood that the investigation
is at an early stage but there is a plan
to arrest him in the next few weeks.
After the 1986 operation into Cooke was
disbanded the former officer went to
check the file – only to find the
pictures had disappeared and any mention
of the men involved had also vanished.
The former officer said: “It was clear
a cover-up had taken place.
“The investigation showed that Cooke
would pick up rent boys and take them
back to flats or garages where large
groups of men were waiting to abuse
“These paedophiles, which included a
lot of high-profile figures that were
said to include the former Cabinet
Minister, Savile and MP Cyril Smith, all
knew each other and all operated
together. They would lie in wait and
Cooke would turn up with the boy who
wouldn’t know what was going to happen.
“We had photographic evidence of these
high-profile figures entering or leaving
buildings where the abuse was taking
place. Everyone knew Savile was a paedo
but nothing was ever done.
“Cyril Smith was photographed going
into one of the properties with a
high-profile film director.
“All of the others were pictured and
were going to be arrested before the
plug was pulled. I was sickened and to
this day I wonder how many children we
could have saved if we had been allowed
to arrest those men.
“I feel guilty they weren’t arrested
but there was nothing I could do at the
time as the evidence had gone.”
The Sunday Mirror knows the identity of
the paedophiles in the gang but has
chosen not to name them.
In 1993 Detective Superintendent Ed
Williams tried to track down the Orchid
file on Cooke to see if there were any
similarities with the abduction and
murder of nine-year-old Daniel Handley,
but he struggled to find the folder.
He eventually found it in the basement
of Arbour Square Police Station in
Stepney, East London.
While there were references to a “wider
paedophile ring” there were no
photographs or names.
Mr Williams said: “I was very upset
about the way the Met treated paedophile
cases but I was a voice in the
wilderness at that time and people
thought I was being over-emotional.
“I found the Orchid files where they
had been put for storage purposes and
somebody had completely forget to send
it back to the Yard. I was trying to
look for paedophiles and connections
with other cases as I was trying to
build up a profile of the offender.
“The report spoke about boys being
passed around from paedophile to
“There were no pictures on the file. It
did mention that there was a wider ring
of individuals but did not mention Jimmy
Savile or a cabinet minister.”
Sidney Cooke, along with three
accomplices – Leslie Bailey, Robert
Oliver and Steven Barrell – was found
guilty of the manslaughter of Jason
Swift in May 1989. They have been linked
to up to 20 murders.
Cooke was believed to have murdered
seven-year-old Mark Tildesley but the
Crown Prosecution Service decided not to
bring charges as he was already serving
19 years for Jason’s death.
He was released in 1998, to a public
outcry, but was rearrested the following
year for systematically abusing two boys
in the 1970s and jailed for life.
Savile was exposed last year as one of
the UK’s most prolific paedophiles, with
450 victims. Police said he “groomed a
nation” by avoiding justice while
abusing hundreds of children over 54
Officers on Operation Yewtree, which
investigated the claims, have also
arrested celebrities including Gary
Glitter, comedian Freddie Starr, DJ Dave
Lee Travis, publicist Max Clifford and
comedian Jim Davidson. All have denied
any wrongdoing and not all the
allegations involve under-16s.
Scotland Yard said they would not
comment on an on-going investigation.
