As the Leveson Inquiry Lets the British Media off the hook this Public Statement Sets The Record Straight for all freethinkers in Britain
The Cooked Report?

Roger Cook's Team Falsifies Evidence

Once I realised that the Cook Report was out to victimise me I refused to give them an interview on camera. One of The Cook Reports most mendacious acts to punish me for that refusal was to dig up an old interview with me which I gave to CTV for another purpose years before and dishonourably edit it to make it seem like I was admitting not taking responsibility for my customers or what they did. The impression given was that I didn't care and was only in it for the money.

What they actually did was to select controversial statements from a long interview, remove several crucial qualifying bits which showed I was speaking generally and present that biased editing without any just or honest light.

The original interview was filmed in May 1986 by a Central Television team for their magazine programme Central Weekend;. This was three years before The Cook Report began their Devil's work programme. At that point I was still daft enough to think that the British Media kept on perpetuating the same old stereotypes because they hadn't had the truth explained to them and took every opportunity to explain the positive nature of the New Age.

You can see clips from some of these excellent interviews here

The film crew who visited the shop in 1986 were friendly enough and promised to portray the increase in popularity of the New Age in a fair light. Thus I agreed that they could film in my shop and interview me and I also travelled to Birmingham to be in the audience for the live programme. It was only when I was sitting in the audience watching the edited interview for the first time that I got to know that the person who had organised it was none other than Roger Cook himself. (Cook mentions his work for Central Weekend on page 92 of his book)

At that time of course there was no suggestion or intimation of the Satanic Ritual Abuse Hysteria which swept the country a few years later. The programme was a debate about the popularisation of paganism and the occult and never made any reference to 'Child Abuse' satanic or otherwise.

In fact the programme was quite well-balanced and was contributed to by other occultists who attended. It also had its quota of off-the-wall Christian fundamentalists, including one Doreen Irvine , who, surprise, surprise, popped up giving interviews about Satanic Ritual Abuse during 1989. Here, three years beforehand, the strongest allegation she made was that as a 'disciple of satan' she had been made to bite the heads off live chickens! (this didn't raise too much concern as Ossie Osborne was biting the heads off chickens in his stage act at the time)

Ironically, the voice-over intro for my filmed interview was done by Cook himself so he can't claim that he didn't know my true and sincere intentions and beliefs.

In another startling synchronicity in these 'orbits of destiny' Doreen Irvine, a long time Christian fundamentalist campaigner (who was famous for writing 'From Witchcraft To Christ' in the 1970s), ended up 'counselling' Caroline Marchant at the Zion Christian Temple at Yate, near Bristol, not a million miles from where Cook lives. Marchant, a mentally disturbed young woman who needed psychiatric help, professed to be a victim of satanic abuse. Her story was later proved to be complete fantasy but gave such a convincing show that she became a cause celebre and was passed amongst the fundamentalist satan hunters whose worst fears she confirmed. Caroline ended up comitting suicide whilst living in the home of Reverend Kevin Logan - an advisor to the Cook Report. Logan also appeared in Cook's programme 'exorcising' children alleged to have suffered satanic abuse.

Many of the most outlandish allegations made by the Satan Hunters during the hysteria (some of which were used to headline the Cook Report) were sourced from the imagination of Caroline Marchant (see here). So here, three years before the Satan Hysteria was ignited the embers of the SRA myth were being inexorably fanned by its major players and the fates were already hooking Cook into the cycle of events.

During the filming I was asked and answered many sensible questions and then came the inevitable controversial ones; I was asked about witches dancing naked etc. and whether that was sexually deviant. Of course, not being familiar with the way the British Media deconstructs filmed interviews I did not realise that when edited the voice of the questioner would be taken out and I would appear to be voluntarily talking about sex linked to witchcraft!

I gave a very succinct overview of my sincere beliefs. I explained that I wasn't a satanist and , I came across as a rational and caring individual. So much so that several nice people wrote to me afterwards congratulating me on portraying the truth about paganism.

Brockworth, Glos, 17th May 1986

Dear Mr Bray,

I am writing to congratulate you on your excellent defence of the occult, which I saw on Central TV last night.

The reasoning put forward by yourself, and other defendents of the occult arts, far outweighed the dogmatic and (in the case of the lady) hysterical arguments put against you.

Again my congratulations on an excellent example of the REAL people who follow our ways,

Yours sincerely
Peter, Surname Witheld
However, three year's later in a climate of persecution I refused to be interviewed on camera again by Cook solely because I had learned that he had been accepting 'information' from five key people who had spent a year trying to smear me with lies.

A year earlier (April 16th 1988) I had a telephone conversation with one of those key enemies who had taunted me with the fact that she was helping with a Cook Report programme. Because of this and other indications that I was being set-up I got in touch by mail with Cook's producer Gareth Jones about the fundamentalist campaign against me and explained my position but found the Cook Report unresponsive.

Can I just run that back to you again? Before the Cook Report had finished it's investigation and before they had contacted me, I voluntarily contacted them and offered to work with them to get at the truth of the matter. I had over the past year, since the initial allegations about SRA had been floated, amassed a mountain of documentation and research profiles on the main promoters of the myth showing that it all came from the same source - Christian fundamentalists. The Cook Report didn't seem to want to know. From the start I felt that they were treating me as 'the enemy' and I couldn't get past this prejudice no matter how I tried.
Here's an example of a letter I sent them which the Cook Report ignored.

Gareth Jones - Producer
The Cook Report,
Central Television,
Central House
Broad Steet
Birmingham B1 2JP
17th March 1989


Further to my earlier letter concerning the above and the criticisms I made of your approach at the time. I am pleased to tell you that I have recently received a definitive written response on the subject from the Home Office which entirely supports my arguments and invalidates the hysterical allegations to which you gave credence.
I quote from the most important part of the letter from the Home Office so:

"Firstly, as you point out, according to press reports, Mr Geoffrey Dickens MP has sent the Home Secretary a dossier of child abuse cases allegedly connected with witchcraft. However this has not been received and the Home Office has no other evidence that there is a problem of the kind Mr Dickens describes. The Government is satisifed that the existing law on child abuse would be sufficient to deal with any offences against children which might be connected with withcraft"
I suppose it would be too much to expect to hear from you with an admission that you were wrong or a rejudgement of your actions in this case but I do seriously insist that you make a note of these facts to avoid acting as an agent for religious prejudice in future instead of accepting hearsay from those with a vested interest in slandering the Occult.

Yours Sincerely
Christopher Bray

One reason why Gareth Jones may not have replied to my letter containing the crucial information that Dickens, a major contributor to the programme, had failed to present his much vaunted 'evidence' to the Home Office (it was never ever presented to our knowledge) was because they already had me lined up for 'the treatment'. A few weeks later (May 3rd 1989) Cook and his team descended on our premises unannounced to doorstep me.

When The Cook report originally asked me for an interview on 31st January 1989 I did agree to meeting with and speaking with Cook or his team OFF camera but for some reason this was not acceptable, which made me suspect that he had already made his mind up to feature me as the villain of the piece. (See clip below from discussion on 'doorstepping' and how people who originally worked with the Cook Report admitted it was misused.) The long and the short of it is that I WANTED to talk to them to correct the false information they had been given by fundamentalists but they weren't apparently interested in any information which undermined their 'take' on the issue. Too much had already been invested for truth to get in the way of a good story.

In the absence of an agreed interview Cook's team cast around for some footage and dredged up the 1986 recording, but, as it stood it wasn't very useful to them. In its entirety it actually answered their questions very fully and showed that I was sincere in my beliefs and not the Satanic Overlord that their 'informants' had painted me to be, as you will see if you check out the verbatim transcript below.

. I had actually given quite a few interviews to the written and broadcast media over the preceding decade (you will find some film extracts here:) so there was lots to go at but all of my interviews are sincere and portray me as a caring individual because that is what I am, so presumably in desperation The Cook Report extracted several controversial parts of the Central Weekend interview and stitched them together out-of-context to make it look like I was admitting to promoting anti-social or criminal acts!

Cook himself then recorded a smear lead-in for which he should be eternally ashamed. The idea appeared to be to portray me as a cavalier businessman making money out of tragedies whilst not taking any responsibility for things I sold or what my clients did whereas in fact the original terms of the interview and it's complete text showed exactly the reverse. That I was actually very responsible tolerant and caring.

Another classic example of how the Cook Report manipulated things to misrepresent me and convince viewers of the programmes claims.

This was such a blatantly dishonourable act, that at the BCC hearing I demanded that the Cook Report produce the original recording of the Central TV Weekend programme so the Commission could listen to what they had done to it because it showed their malicious intent. The Cook Report Team said that they couldn't for the moment find the recording (people working in the media who know just how carefully recordings are filed and classified and duplicated can pause a few seconds for a hollow laugh here) but Cook and his Team made conciliatory noises to the BCC assuring them that they would find a copy and send it to them in due course. I complained about this bitterly but was over-ruled.

Of course the tape wasn't sent to the BCC in time and this completely blocked one of the main planks of my complaint. It disabled the BCC from giving a proper ruling. It took me months to get a recording by other means. Of course now, years later, the entire clip can be seen on Youtube (see below) but then the words 'stitched up' came to mind. By that time the BCC had come to their conclusion which although it recognised that Cook had misrepresented me would have , of course, been much stronger censure had they been in possession of the true recording for it was prime-facie evidence of the Cook Report's conscious attempt to misrepresent my words and intentions.

This is what people Saw on The Cook Report

Roger Cook narrates the voice-over.

Proprietor Chris Bray has admitted in the past that he has some very dubious clients but denies he has any responsibility for what they do. '

'Now unfortunately there are people in creation there must be room for them, for all potentialities, and it is unfortunate that they do exist who are more inclined towards the sinister aspects of magic. Towards the darker aspects primarily because it gives them a vicarious thrill or an excuse for their own sexual abnormalities. There is nothing wrong with that providing they do not harm another and unfortunately because most of them are exhibitionists they tend to be the ones that the newspapers get hold of and that is the image that has been presented of occultism generally. ..... We are not evangelical in the sense that we try to push it onto other people but we are here as an access point so that people reach out to us. We never refuse any enquiries at all............

Note: I have crossed through the words above which the Cook Report removed from my statements to make me appear to be saying the opposite of what I actually did. (see Youtube link below for the full video)
Three years on Bray did refuse to be interviewed and threatened legal action when asked to explain his part in the current promotion of satanism. "
NOTE: (1) I have never 'admitted that I have dubious clients' . I refuse to supply anyone with dubious intentions.

NOTE: (2) I did not refuse an interview, I invited it - off camera because of the dangerous situation with fundamentalist terrorists. Cook refused to interview me off camera and then told viewers I would not see him!

Note: (3) The sentences struck out in the above text were qualifications which more properly explained the meaning of what I was saying but which were edited out by the Cook Report to enable them to falsley portray me as irresponsible.

Now Click the pic below to view the complete video of the unexpurgated interview which clearly depicts my sincere beliefs and positive moral values which the Cook Report did not want the British public to see.

The Unexpurgated Interview with Chris Bray

Transcript of the full Interview follows so you can see How The Cook Report Manipulated It To Infer The Opposite of What I Originally Meant

CENTRAL TV's : 'WEEKEND' Programme
(Friday May 16th 1986)
Including the unexpurgated interview with Mr C.M. Bray from which the Cook Report extracted out-of-context the 'self-incriminating' statements used in their discredited The Devil's Work on 17th July 1989"

VIDEO LEAD IN: Dramatic TV reconstruction using actors of cowled figures with a naked girl in a sinister scene with horror background music linked with shots from the Film 'THE DEVIL RIDES OUT' (based on the fictional book of the same name by Dennis Wheatley) which shows a goat having it's throat cut!
STUDIO INTERVIEWER: "Is that what Black Magick is REALLY like? Well we met a Wizard whose potions and paraphernalia are sent through the post to Witches covens, Conjurors and sometimes just the plain curious.
This report by ROGER COOK.

(TRANSCRIPTOR'S NOTE: Mr Bray did not meet Cook or know of his involvement in the programme - Cook's voice over was appended to the interview after filming)

Studio Goes To Video-Tape

VOICE OVER BY ROGER COOK : "Behind this dark door in a Leeds back street lies a booming business. The major supplier to the growing number of believers in Witchcraft and Magic. The Sorcerer's Apprentice was established by Chris Bray 13 years ago at the start of the occult boom."


CHRIS BRAY "In modern times people tend to look upon spirituality as though it is an accessory to life when inside they know that it is the most important thing that there is. Witchcraft to the majority of people from the outside tends to smack of satanism which it is not.

The actual religion of Witchcraft is based on the universal religion of paganism which is at the root of all civilisations. It is a prehistoric religion and that gives us sustenance to continue by linking in with the planetary and seasonal cycles and becoming at one with the planet.

So most people involved in Withcraft tend to be ecologically minded they tend to love animals and also be gregarious and willing to help and serve others and that is as far removed from the image of Satanism as you can get.

But bound up in the religion of Witchcraft there is also the practice of magick. Magick is a power, it is an abstract power. lt is the power of genius and creativity which courses through the universe it is nothing at all secular, it can be applied by anyone and magick is the method and the technique by which you apply that formula.

The power is a natural power, it is one that anyone can use, it actually holds you up, magick is the intensive creative power which gives you thought and gives you a reason to be it is not secular so therefore the application of it is a question of technique rather than belief; once you understand that magic does work you can use it for all facets. "


CHRIS BRAY: "There's been a lot of talk about black and white magic and it is important to distinguish between the two. There isn't a generic kind of magick which is black, there is magick pure and simple and the use of it depends upon the good taste of the operator.

Now unfortunately there are people in creation there must be room for them, for all potentialities, and it is unfortunate that they do exist who are more inclined towards the sinister aspects of magic. Towards the darker aspects primarily because it gives them a vicarious thrill or an excuse for their own sexual abnormalities. There is nothing wrong with that providing they do not harm another and unfortunately because most of them are exhibitionists they tend to be the ones that the newspapers get hold of and that is the image that has been presented of occultism generally.

When the magician uses the elemental paraphernalia on the altar, which by the way are usually reflected in most religions anyhow, because the elements, the quality of the elements are a universal truth. They are all represented across a magician's altar. A magician's altar looks very Similar to a High Mass altar and so this equipment is involved in the rite principally to keep the outside busy while the inside, the inside of. the person, is developing on to higher planes of thought, higher planes of being, and of course the equipment, if it is not used for a functional sense, such as incense burners which are used of course to burn incense in, are used in a symbolic sense.

So when a witch holds a dagger for instance, she is not holding a dagger in the general sense of the word she is holding a tool that can be used to chop herbs, to mix potions. It can be used to carve talismans into wood and so on. Likewise the cup which is used as a chalice is used for libations. It is a symbol of water containment. So all these things have a great degree of inner mystery to them which to the outsider may tend to look rather mysterious or sinister and in actual fact they can be explained away.

Occultism is life itself to me. We are very comitted people in what we do. We are not evangelical in the sense that we try to push it onto other people but we are here as an access point so that people reach out to us. We never refuse any enquiries at all and living without occultism to me is really like trying to run a race with one leg. It is impossible.

The sole criterion is that it should work. There is an old withcraft tenet which says that the goddess offers certainty not faith and that is very important so it is 'jam now' and it is a strange thing that unless you have experienced magick work, you don't believe it. It is only a potential. It is a possibility but the moment that we do experience it it changes your whole life and very much to the good. The potential of it. I mean, think of it. If you haven't worked magick and you work a piece of magick and it works.

The potentials are unlimited and that is what people are doing; they are striving to complete themselves, it is their birthright and it should not be denied them."

Video Ends.
CONCLUSION: Thus, a balanced interview given years ago for a programme which had nothing to do with child abuse, was wickedly edited by the Cook Report to falsely portray me as being involved in promoting it!

The Full Text Of
"The Process"
As it appeared in LOT22 reprinted for the first time in 20 years

Read it in full and make up your own mind

NOTE: This poorly printed 'proclamation', below, was sent to 'the editor of the LOT' anonymously through the post. I presumed it would have been sent to other esoteric magazine publishers. I was concerned that it was not from the original Process Church but was some other person trying to hi-jack their infamy. Either way I took the decision to publish it verbatim and add my personal comments on its contents as a way of engendering debate and the insight of regular LOT readers.

Page 42
What does it mean?'

THE PROCESS: is the true penultimate world movement. The ultimate fusion of all religious political and magical beliefs complete the PROCESS in which the dichotomy of good and evil dies. In this way, we live out the Final Judgement when the Lam and the Goat become one; in the individual the penultimate is achieved; when the world is embraced by the PROCESS, we achieve the ultimate.

PROCESS begins in individual change when we begin to play the fearful Game of Self. This witnesses the PROCESS in ACTION and is not merely an intellectualised catharsis. Each individual must be helped towards realising what course of Action must be taken to initiate the PROCESS of inner-change through outer-expression. Our advice in this matter is clear: any action that has seemed repulsive, reprehensible and vile to the individual should be Acted-out and set free., This is not the intellectualised merit of "seeing both sides", nor is it the grey area in which most occult teaching is grounded. Immediate Action is the only design that fits the patter. The criteria is very simple: We live in FEAR of what we despise because we fear and despise what we feel we cannot be. If youare a Christian, this is symbolised by Satan, ; if a satanist, it is symbolised by Christ. These are Great Fears, made up , made up by many little fears. Therefore, to unite the Great Fears we must begin the PROCESS and identify, BECOME IN ACTUALITY, our Little Fears. The whole of existence must be based upon the transformation of Little Fears into conscious ACTIONS. By seeking out fear in living experience, we become fear itself. We cancel out fear for ourselves and create the penultimate stage of the PROCESS. The ultimate aim is out of our hands (at the moment), resting in the guise of the gods: Jehovah-Lucifer-Satan; the symbols of the PROCESS as the triadic expression of the Final Judgement: the reconciliation of Love and Fear. THE PROCESS: "Release the fiend that lies dormant within you, for he is strong and ruthless and his power is far beyond the bounds of human frailty" Learn to love fear; love is to learn fear; the reconciliation of the Lam and the Goat in the Final Judgement. As it is, so be it.


Manson went astray where others in the PROCESS have succeeded. He was sucked into the whirlpool of Fame and Fortune and when he didn't cut it, he decided to cut it up. Despite this Manson speaks for a generation and he is deserving of the cult following his infamy has secured. Perhaps this is because he recognises Fear so well, perhaps because he testifies to those areas many of us deny exist. Perhaps the fascination is that he carried out HIS IDEAS IN ACTION, and showed many of us what it is like to actually commit the crime we'd like to commit. Manson was right when he said he was a scapegoat. In this way, he has a clear right to say he's christ (and also the Devil) though in recent years he has chosen to deny such identification. Manson was clever in his choice of beliefs: the whole Beatles Helter Skelter thing was, of course, a model to instigate the PROCESS into his followers, who were more likely to respond to such "turned on " symbols than more traditional ones. The whole thing was a scam; a guru trick, but Manson's intention was to open up the occult centres of perception by a unique, pop-based outlook influenced primarily by the PROCESS: in his terms; "Getting the Fear" This was a natural talent he had in seeing prevalent social themes; in knowing the right time for action even if this action was murder. Manson went astray where others in the PROCESS have succeeded HE GOT CAUGHT. A pity really, seeing as the opportunity for a scapegoat was so sorely needed in order to EXCUSE the ignorant and stupid - the real root of all evil in our society. However, as the Family might have agreed with the song lyric :You'll get yours yet" The PROCESS will See to that. Soror H. Contact Address BCM Process, London WC1

Editorial statement: This untimely mix of psychopathic garbage landed on my desk the other day. All magicians worthy of the name know that fear shackles humanity and that to exorcise one's fears brings liberation but such a catharsis can be experienced just as effectively by an assortment of lawful means which are available to the trained magician. Soror H reveals her own fears and lack of wisdom by inferring that the bigger the atrocity you commit the greater the freedom obtained. This misconception results from confusing fear with anathema. Anyone suffering from claustrophobia will quickly explain the difference and will if pressed be prepared to kill all the other passengers in the elevator in order to escape. Murder is the ultimate personal statement, our ultimate human power. Reasons, causes and motives are unnecessary appendages which only serve to glamourise a situation which is very unspecial.

Latest Comment: Obviously it is clear that this article was meant by the person or persons who mailed it to be provocative. Of course its contents will be unpalatable to many - they are unpalatable to me too. However I make no apologies for printing it because I was bringing it to the notice of the occult community for general discussion and warning them of the false magical methodology it promoted. My question to the Cook Report in turn is WHAT HAS ALL THIS GOT TO DO WITH SATANIC RITUAL CHILD ABUSE? Neither the Process nor any members of The Family were ever accused of any form of child abuse. It is as though the Cook Report cast around for the most controversial articles and cobbled them together to portray me as evil when I am not.


The strangest fact in this harum-scarum of ideas which the Cook Report cobbled together is that Roger Cook already knew more than me about The Process Church anyway, HE HAD DIRECT CONTACT WITH THEM.

On Sunday 9th April 1972 whilst working for The World This Weekend Roger Cook actually did one of the first in-depth documentary reports on The Process Church.

He was critical of the organisation and went into great detail to explain their beliefs, interviewing a founder member but ROGER COOK MADE ABSOLUTELY NO CLAIMS OF CHILD ABUSE Here's an extract from the programme to give you the gist of what Cook thought about the Process then.

Cook: A bewilderment not helped by the Process's baffling beliefs. Jehova, Lucifer and Satan are all worshipped equally and in their luridly printed and conceitedly printed magazine the Process actually appear to advocate rape and violence. I put that to Father Malachai,
Father Malachai: The Process is not advocating rape and nobodys advocating violence.....

Ed Sanders: They're riding away with this Jesus Freak movement....... and try to get recruits from it and accordingly trying to come on more as a Christian unit rather than their belief in Satan and destruction and thou shalt kill and end the world but its hard to believe that a leopard can change its spots ....

How then, 17 years later, did it come about that I, who have no other connection with The Process church other than printing this one leaflet, am being hounded about the group's activities when Cook's contact book already offered avenues so he could ask them what they were doing direct?

Why did Cook need to point the finger of guilt at me for publishing and condemning this proclamation, instead of chasing down his old contacts in the Church itself?

In the intervening 17 years the Process Church had not been prosecuted for any violence or rape. They had certainly not been prosecuted for any child abuse. Why, in an article falsely condemning me as acting as a go-between (which I am not) did the Cook Report fail to chase after and doorstep The Process themselves whom, presumably, the Cook Report suspected were actually committing the criminal acts?

I can see that you will forgive me for thinking that this was another stitch-up where something explainable was kept dark in order to massage the worst fears in viewers' minds and blame me for something I had not done.


The Rite of Transmutational Sorcery

By S.L. Sennit

This article is inspired by the "aestheticism" of the Mythos of the Dark Gods and related to the fiction of H.P.Lovecraft, August Derleth and others. As a model of functioning chaos energy the results reached via the method below cause an inner vertigo that tends to over-ride personality interference and thus an immense change in conscious perception occurs.

METHOD. (with illustrative reference to the aesthetic effect). The sorcerer is to identify with an aspect of "pure" manifest chaos, represented in this model by the Cthulhu Mythos entity AZATHOTH, "blind and idiot force at the centre of infinity." This invokation is dangerous, but will confer a great deal of perceptive power to those strong of stomach! The chamber should be in total darkness. Choose a heavy cloying incense to dim the Ego-senses and meditate upon the presence of AZATHOTH in an awkward position; one which causes strain or excitement. No instrument of the Art should be used apart from the metaphysical. In your chosen position a mantra scream should begin, low and muffled, coming from the stomach, somewhere near the groin. This should be felt to tear from the physical body as it emerges from the throat, getting rawer, louder, more animal like as it progresses. Eventually the scream must rise more frequently and become the total centre of being as you feel it lift from the dark pit of your stomach into the dizzy vortex of blackness; ripping you apart, rending you free; summoning Azathoth from the abyss of deepest dreaming chaos.

AIDS TO THIS WORKING: A sigil may be used as the preordained image of the Primal Scream. Such as:

This will have the effect of providing an image of Azathoth, though it will be an abstract, impressionist image. Care should be taken to avoid being sucked into Azathoth's voidal entity, and this sigil will do the job by forcing a subjective identity on it which the sorcerer may "freeze" and contain. In this way, the invokation will be limited but more tangibly successful; the magician becomes an aspect of Azathoth. Such a working is very dangerous but can go further and is infinite in its drastic consequences.

I suggest the use of some hallucinogenic herb such as Henbane, Deadly Nightshade or the less effective Woody Nightshade which can be used as an external ointment to aid the projection into the Abyss. However may I remind the reader that these narcotics are obviously very dangerous and care should be taken in their use.

(Editor: Henbane and Deadly Nightshade secrete lethal toxins in all their parts which can enter the bloodstream directly through a scratch or open wound, causing a miserable death. We advise against their use.)

POSSIBLE USES OF THE RITE: Perception of the very outer limits of consciousness can provide immense changes to the Ego which will diminish if the invokation is succesful, and thus enable further magickal freedom due to the intensity of the experience. Directed magickal results may be obtained by meditating on their fulfillment or sigilized to be reified by the invokation. Such as: obtaining of some material desire; perception of other worlds; contact with other sorcerers; curing and/or injuring other physical beings etc., but the main point of the ritual is to effect a lasting and devastating change in perceptive consciousness.

Latest Comments: As you can see although the writer of this article suggested the use of Henbane or Deadly Nightshade (which are two traditional hypnogogic herbs used anciently in magic and are said to be part of the Flying Ointment used by witches in mediaeval times) it is supplemental to the rite itself. He also responsibly warns readers of their toxicity.

To supplement this I, as editor, also appended a robust caution about the fact that the toxins in Henbane and Belladonna can enter the bloodstream through cuts and grazes on the skin so therefore are unreliable to all but the experienced.

The article is a genuine modern magical rite based on ancient precepts. The employment of 'Flying Ointment' is historically accurate. I would not have published the article in censored form without it just to avoid the possibility that some idiot somewhere in the world would read it and ignore TWO clear cautions, strive to find enough of what are now very rare plants and still have the persistence to swallow them.

The point is that the toxicity of poisonous plants is often greatly exaggerated (that's what Tate tried to do in the Radio Leeds interview). but the amount of herb required to cause an affect on consciousness is normally far, far below the amount required to cause poisoning. Poisoning itself is not an on/off switch, it is a gradual process, therefore the body gives clear warning of danger and can recover from most overdoses of natural ingredients. Unlike chemical drugs which are so concentrated that once taken can rarely be reversed. For instance:,

Tate complains about my risking my readers health with this article but ironically the closest death by poisoning to him during this farago was that of Caroline Marchant, the SRA victim-imposter who committed suicide at the home of the Reverend Kevin Logan who was looking after her and helping her write up her SRA 'experiences'. Logan not only contributed to the Cook Report but actually appeared on camera exorcising children. There is no suggestion that Logan was at fault in Marchant's death, the point I am trying to make is that she killed herself with an overdose of paracetamol, not Deadly Nightshade.

In other words one would have not only to be very persistent to locate and very very stupid to ingest the amount of these herbs which are required to poison a human to death but would probably be hospitalised long before one got to that impasse.

By its very nature the LOT is read by discerning and intelligent individuals and is not obtainable generally to the ordinary public I was satisfied that any risk was small enough to be accepted. This judgement has been confirmed by the fact that in the 24 years that have elapsed since this article was put into print there has not been any reports of anyone being killed by it.


So that's it folks! Cook told you that I was promoting Satanic Ritual Child Abuse but his key bits of evidence, document 1 and document 2, HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH SATANIC RITUAL CHILD ABUSE!

The groups and people involved have not been accused of it and not been investigated for it. The articles themselves don't mention it and I have done nothing more than published the articles for open debate.


More Dangerous Ground. Roger Cook's New Book
Roger Cook
Hounds An Innocent Man
for Twenty Years
Now We Tell The Full Story

"How many times does a falsehood have to be told before the teller of it becomes a liar?"

When the Cook Report depicted me as selling dead bodies and organising Satanic Ritual Child Abuse the public were rightly shocked. They wanted my blood and some of them firebombed my shop because of it; but experienced Cook Report observers saw it as 'entertainment'. The Cook Report were careful not to actually allege what their on-screen inferences clearly inferred. They had not actually said anywhere in their programme that I was involved in Satanic Child Abuse because I wasn't - it was all falsehood. If they had made those criminal accusations I would have slapped them with a writ but their allegations on-screen had been carefully phrased and because of that I could do nothing but keep on insisting on the truth and pointing up their dishonourable actions over the years.

The Broadcasting Complaints Commission who looked into the matter saw this and castigated The Cook Report for not making it clear in their report that I was not involved in any form of child abuse.

Some of the Cook Report team were honest enough to admit that there 'had been problems with the programme' but Imagine my surprise when decades later, Cook, knowing what the BCC had said, began falsely re-portraying me as a child-abuser in his last book; and in a recently broadcast radio interview. I have been waiting for over twenty years for an apology and to have my name cleared but Cook appears to now be actually embellishing and strengthening his programme's lies as time passes. I cannot, indeed must not, let him get away with it. History, if it is to mean anything, must reflect the truth.

He may think that the public's memory is so short that he can ignore what has gone before but I cannot allow these lies to persist and so have here related the TRUE story about the Cook Report's The Devil's Work.. It is the never before told inside story about how Cook was conned into broadcasting the biggest Hoax in twentieth century television.

So What Were The Cook Report Allegations:

The allegations made against me by the Cook Report were succinctly put in a radio interview between Tim Tate (the Producer and Researcher for the programme) and myself on Radio Leeds the day after the Cook Report had been broadcast. In response to my question as to what the Cook Report was actually alleging this is what Tate said:
TATE: "We wanted to talk to you specifically about the article and adverts in your publication which is the Lamp of Thoth. We specifically wanted to talk to him about the piece from the Process Church of the final Judgement and The Rite of Transmutational Sorcery, we specifically wanted to talk to Chris about that and, let me finish, it includes the suggestion from the author that the person who uses this rite should use Henbane or Deadly Nightshade Psychotropic Drugs which are extraordinarily dangerous."
Roger Cook made one additional allegation on-camera to the effect that I was involved in selling dead bodies. This amazingly stupid criminal accusation was trumped-up from a single classified advertisement in the Lamp of Thoth's contact section where an eccentric lady had advertised for a man-friend with similar interests in necromancy,funeral impedimentia and 'body parts'. Today of course she would be termed a 'Goth' but in 1989 Cook tried to insinuate that I was acting as a go-between in the sale of dead bodies! All this would be farcical if it were not so serious, it lead to a long discussion at the Broadcasting Complaints Commission hearing over the difference between necromancy and necrophilia! The Cook Report team either did not know the difference or were trying to add gravitas to their stupid allegation.
. This was the ONLY advertisement which referred to 'body parts' in 27 issues spanning a dozen years. I had never met the woman and didn't know her personally but she actually gave her postal address in the advert. It was an easy thing for the Cook Report to disprove, but instead of visiting and asking her they ran with the falsehood as 'further evidence' that I was involved in Satanic Ritual Abuse. There is absolutely no other evidence of any kind to bolster the ridiculous allegations they were making. Onlookers may say that I was unwise to risk allowing the advertisement but the Lamp of Thoth is a magazine for alternative types. It prides itself on breaking the bounds of censorship of 'normal' publications. Because it was clear that nobody actually involved in grave-robbing etc. would place a public advert admitting it I didn't see what the problem was and bunged it in.

Front Cover of The Lamp of Thoth issue 24You will see from the above that virtually the whole of the Cook Report's justification for including me in their now discredited programme came from statements and articles in The Lamp of Thoth magazine. In particular Volume 4 number 4 (which is incidentally the magical square of Saturn!) which contained both articles which Tim Tate objected to: viz:
The Rite of Transmutational Sorcery and
The Process: What Does It Mean .
Tate and the Cook Report made much of these, as though I was specifically promoting them, yet in the same issue there were another 15 similarly controversial articles from different angles, including, The Manson Report by Jimmi Rocket which Cook did not comment upon. The Manson Report was a round-robbin update of Manson's state of mind and included a letter from him.

The Lamp of Thoth is one of the best occult magazines around. It is an OCCULT magazine. You would expect to find all this stuff there but none of it has any connection with the lies concerning Satanic Ritual Child Abuse. The Cook report simply selected the controversial stuff they could twist to support their prejudices. To try to portray me as some kind of evil lunatic when if you read an LOT you will see that it is highly responsible and a correct reflection of leading edge thinkers.

Cook and Tate may not like what we print in the LOT but that's no reason to censor lawful self-expression is it? The Cook Report became more an attack on free-thinkers and suppression of alternative beliefs than a crusade to save kids. So you can see how wrong Tate and The Cook Report was I am appending both the articles, in full, in the column left. You don't have to rely on Cook to interpret the worthiness of the Lamp of Thoth. You can judge for yourself by downloading a complete sample copy from here: The Lamp of Thoth.

What Went Wrong With The Devil's Work?

Cook's appalling 1989 TV special The Devil's Work was the summit of his unprofessionalism. It spearheaded and promoted the Satanic Ritual Abuse Myth which did so much harm during 1989 to innocent parents accused of false SRA and of course messed up the lives of their children by forcing them into care. The programme still requires an apology to the British people and to myself whom Cook unfairly targeted on Trial by TV. Yet instead of admitting that this programme was in error Roger Cook has taken the opportunity in Dangerous Ground his latest book to re-write history in his own peculiar perspective. Chapter 9 contains not a discussion of the pro's and con's of the programme but a renewed and concerted personal attack on me for striving to obtain justice. Now according to Cook's latest radio interview I am not only evil, I am apparently mad!

.... and as far as I know he's still mad enough to be doing that today....
He's right, I'm hopping mad about these lies, though I have a feeling Cook meant raving mad because where I am concerned he appears to be willing to say anything to put people off listening to the truth.

This time Cook skips entirely over the real issue - that he told his viewers that there was a nationwide network of satanists torturing and sacrificing children when in fact time has proved that there was none. Instead of addressing this crucial argument and explaining why all the allegations and accusations he made in this programme failed, he blames the sinking of his career on some imagined high-level conspiracy against him by the News of The World!

But here's an interesting story showing how the gods work. When Cook and the News of The World were locked in a two year bitter legal wrangle over claims that he had faked some of his shows Cook admits in his book that it took a personal toll on him so he jetted off to Spain for a break and bumped into me at Malaga airport departure lounge!

Of course I reported this to the SAFF and they published a cheeky account of my 'doorstepping' of the master doorstepper! This made Cook look foolish in many people's eyes and lead to him giving an alarmingly partisan re-telling of the spectacle of me reversing the roles and doorstepping HIM in Malaga airport . In his book he appears to be trying to convince his readers that I was victimising HIM! Poor put upon Roger.....

Inevitable Questions Answered

I am writing this statement to put the record straight to answer the inevitable questions that will occur now and in the future whenever anyone reads his self-congratulatory book. Following the hullaballoo of the Leveson Inquiry it will also be of great interest to those who do not yet see how dishonourably some parts of the British media conduct themselves

Cook has over the years done his best to persecute me by not only misrepresenting me initially but then, when the truth came out and his programme was undermined, continuing to insist that he was right in the first place; yet in the intervening two decades:

How many satanists have been prosecuted for Satanic ritual child abuse?
How many cases have the NSPCC brought to book after appearing on the Cook Report urging action?
What did the Government's definitive report on the issue say in 1994?
Satanic Ritual Abuse didn't Exist!

No Bodies, No Bones, No Forensic Evidence ever found

Every single case and allegation quoted by Cook in his The Devil's Work failed in the course of time.
Every 'victims'' story turned out to be false.
The allegations were untrue.
There was no substance to any of it.

More Dangerous Ground is another example of how Cook has doggedly attacked and defamed me over the years regardless of the truth. Yet I am an honest and honourable family man with no criminal record. I have been self-supporting all my life and have contributed philanthropically to many organisations, including being one of the founders of an ecological charity as well as supporting organisations which protect freedom of thought and expression. I have personally aided the police with research and background to disprove several key cases and enhance the course of justice, contributed to the UNA's reportage on religion and belief, assisted the Commission for Racial Equality with its campaign to widen its scope to include religious hate crimes, have worked with many key journalists who have properly informed the public about the truth over the SRA lies and I was one of the few people singled out for thanks in the government's definitive report on The Satan Myth.

Hundreds of Thousands: Mail On Sunday 14 March 2004I have done all this freely and received no payment for it. Unlike Cook, who, let us not forget, made millions out of pursuing his victims on TV. Cook prefers to overlook all my good works in the past 30 years including being a member of the United Nations Association and organising thousands of signatures of support for the first international climate change meeting in Brazil which lead to the Kyoto Summit which swayed most of the world's nations to do something about protecting the environment. Cook ignores all those things and instead writes about me as though I am a crook!

There's No Secret About What I do

In my lifetime's work at the Sorcerer's Apprentice Bookshop I have for over three decades assisted the personal and spiritual development of over 70,000 clients worldwide who have an interest in ALL types of religions and beliefs. That includes Christianity. There has never been any secret about what I do. For over a decade prior to the Cook Report I worked happily with the media and gave many radio, newspaper and TV interviews to portray the positive things about occultism. You can see some of them here My shop was then open 6 days a week and anyone, including detractors, could call in and challenge me at any time if they wanted. I am reachable by phone, by Fax, by email, and by post. My entire range of goods can be seen on my website here: www.sorcerers-apprentice.co.uk 24 hours a day. You can read what my customers think and get up to on the S.A.'s forum here and you can even download and read over 100 lessons on magical technique which I have written to explain the estoeric to newcomers instantly from here to see that none of them promote satanism. Could anyone possibly be more open?

My premis has always been, right from when I first started the Sorcerer's Apprentice (indeed it was one of the reasons FOR starting it) that there is common ground between all ideologies. My intention was to provide a platform where people from ALL beliefs could get to see those common connections and perhaps avoid the deadly conflict which is an end result of the fanaticism of orthodox religions.

How prescient this was! When Cook was doing the sectarians' dirty-work for them in 1989 I was warning everyone that the implications were immense and that these people wanted to start another Holy War against all other religions. Here we are after 9/11 and the London Bombings with what is to all intents and purposes another Crusade between the Christianised West and Islamic theocratic extremists in the Middle East; the full ramifications of which have yet to be understood by many who have swallowed the convenient political lie that it is all about oil.

Cook Traffics with Fundamentalist Troublemakers

Geoffrey Dickens Caught Lying
Any state would be happy to have tax-paying self-supporting, unselfish citizens like me; yet Cook cooperated with and listened to a cadre of self-declared sectarian enemies of my all-encompassing approach because they feared it would undermine their control over the minds of the masses. It was this gang of five, including a leading MP, Geoffrey Dickens, who invented the untrue outrageous statements, and allegations which headlined Cook's programme. He was USED and manipulated by these people.

Whether Cook personally knew their hidden agenda to bring down the Sorcerer's Apprentice when he started is unclear but he certainly knew that I was not a satanist and that I was sincere in my religious convictions because three years before The Devil's Work was broadcast he organised a middle-of-the-road programme on me which involved filming at my premises and portraying my business in a balanced light (see 'The Cooked Report' column left for full details).

Additionally, Cook's close confidant and head of The Cook Report team Tim Tate admitted in a radio interview a day after the Devil's Work was broadcast that they were aware that fundamentalists were campaigning against the occult. Did they know that some of those fundamentalists who were providing them with information had already expressed a desire to close my bookshop down? Tate denies this is the case but the facts speak for themselves and I did formally tell the Cook Report this when I first wrote to them months before they doorstepped me.

Maureen Davies managing the helplines after the Cook Report broadcast The Devil's WorkOne key consultant to the Cook Report was Maureen Davies. Davies is a christian fundamentalist agitator and prior to the Satanic Ritual Child Abuse Claims, had spent years protesting and campaigning about aspects of the New Age which most people would find quite innocuous. Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Astrology, Tarot Cards, Heavy Metal music and all the usual nonsense came within her remit as symptoms of 'Satanism'.

She was a director of the Reachout Trust, an evangelical action group which took a major part in floating the Satanic Ritual Child Abuse myth but which had earlier spent decades attacking the New Age without mentioning it!

Not only did Davies act as a consultant for the Cook Report but she also managed the 'helplines' set up after The Devil's Work was broadcast. Here is a picture of her doing it (see right). She was shown being interviewed by Roger Cook in the Cook Report Update and claimed that 900 calls about satanism had been received. But if you click on the photo above you can hear Davies lecturing to church audiences on 'How To Deal With The Occult In Your Area' where it is clear that she thinks everything which is not Holy Writ is somehow a gateway to Satan!

Of course, many christians, thinking occultism is spiritually worthless, might say that Davies has a right to attack it but that is because they are very dim of what the real issues are here and how fundamentalism starts with the most unpopular sections of society and then works up to affect everyone else, often embodying latent racism. Look at this:

"REACHOUT ATTACKS HINDUS: As the fundies become stronger they begin to show their hand more readily. In a tape recorded lecture about her visit to USA fundamentalists Maureen Davies attacks Hinduism. Accusing schools of promoting Witchcraft and Cannibalism to four year olds , in the same breath she goes on:

"They're not allowed to have Christianity, but they're bringing in Hinduism, reincarnation, all these things through their visualisation. ... And it is being brought in in a very subtle way. And then they'll bring in a Hindu to share and the whole lot. ...I think we need to realise how our education is being contaminated. "

Not content with besmirching believers in Hinduism, one of the most widespread religions in the world, puritanically protestant Davies moves straight into slandering Catholicism with the following slight:

"Catholicism and Satanism really mix well".

I wonder if those easy-going christians who were inclined to listen receptively to Reachout's allegations about Satanists will also support Davies' attacks on Hindus and Catholicism? Are we seeing a chink of light here?

Now I ask you dear reader, do you think it is fair for Roger Cook to allow a zenophobic sectarian evangelist to be allowed to direct blood-libel allegations against an opposing belief and base a programme almost entirely on it? Isn't this something like allowing a Hasidic Jew Settler present evidence of blood-libel against Palestinians? There would be an absolute outcry if Cook tried that wouldn't there? Well here's the proof:



.................... "Go down to WHSMITH and look at the magazines or go into any large newsagents and look at the magazines and you will find one or two and especially one particular magazine under the title of PREDICTION. Now Prediction is an astrology magazine; is a star sign magazine and you may say "well what's wrong with that, you know, no harm in that etc. etc. " You open it up and flick through it. What you will find in there is, first of all there is often an article in there, advert in there, Winning with Witchcraft. There are also a number of adverts in there for occult shops and in these occult shops; AND ONE ESPECIALLY UP IN LEEDS WHERE WE HAVE SOME FRIENDS WHO HAVE BEEN MARCHING ROUND AND REALLY TAKING HOLD OF GOD TO CLOSE DOWN", fundie agitators outside The Sorcerer's Apprentice in Hyde Park, Leeds,

Note 1: This Reachout tape which so clearly proves my contentions to the Cook Report was sold by mail to fundamentalists in the Reachout network as a training leture on what they can do to campaign against The New Age and specifically singles my business out. This campaign was going on for over year before the Cook Report got involved.

Note 2; The photograph alongside shows two fundamentalist agitators picketing outside The Sorcerer's Apprentice bookshop in Hyde Park Leeds which was firebombed after the Cook Report. You can see a larger version of it here.

The Reachout Trust was the major organisation which spread belief in The Satanic Ritual Child Abuse Myth in the U.K. The shocking allegations gave this previously provincial and unremarkable charity which for years had specialised in cruelly slandering Jehovah's Witnesses as an evil 'cult', entre into high levels in the U.K. child scare industry who sucked up their lies to gain more funding and expand their own influence.

As soon as SAFF work began to make an impact and the media turned against the myth the Reachout Trust STOPPED making claims about SRA and went back to condemning JWs! Maureen Davie's then split off into a new organisation, the Beacon Trust, which specialised in SRA.

How can Cook and Tate possibly say that the people who fed them false research were not troublemakers intent on closing my business down for sectarian reasons? One could easily make the case that British fundies chose me to attack precisely because I was the only person at the time who was contradicting the false accusations about satanic abuse which they were using to obtain sectarian control over the moral direction of our society. Why was I contradicting them? Because they were blaming me for it and I knew I was innocent, hence could see through the veil of illusion they were foisting on everyone else. When I checked into their claims I saw that they were all wicked exaggerations or complete falsehoods. What a pity Cook didn't do the same thing!

Now we don't mind criticism and we don't avoid debate. We live in a free country and I am ready to debate with ardent Christians about what I do any time. I expect them to accord me the same rights. This is essential for a proper understanding of the truth. However I do draw the line when obsessive evangelicals begin to tell others that I am involved in criminal activities simply because they hate me.
These facts should have put a stop on Cook's programme but it didn't. In fact one of the gang who ranged against me could not wait for the programme to go out and actually let the cat out of the bag by threatening me with the Cook Report when I telephoned her to complain about criticisms she had made of my shop in a radio interiew.

Even after Cook had backed the 'mother of all Satanic exposes', there were other key occasions when he could have changed tack (or at the very least re-arranged the tabloidesque thread of his programme to give more balance) , including my several offers to discuss it all with him off-camera. I explained to him in detailed letters (sent via my solicitor so their existence couldn't be denied) that I was being persecuted by sectarians who wanted to destroy all alternative spiritual beliefs and that some of these were being retained by him as advisers to his programme. I warned him that the idea of Satanic Child Abuse was a figment of their demon-soaked imaginations. I told Cook this months before he doorstepped me but it didn't appear to have any effect - he was intent on making me the villain of the piece.

Government inquiry proved me right and Cook wrong.

The Official Government Report on Satanic Ritual Abuse, authored by

Prof Jean La Fontaine'sYet, in 1994 after a long period of research with access to the very cases Cook highlighted in his Devil's Work programme the government's official report said exactly the same things that I had been trying to tell Cook earlier! The scare had been a figment in the minds of Christian Fundamentalists who had fooled Cook and many social workers

"Detailed study of cases showed that the Evangelical Christian campaign against new religious movements has been a powerful influence encouraging the identification of satanic abuse..."
Definitive Government report
I had been right all along and Cook had been wrong,
very wrong -
insistently wrong beyond good reason.
Today Cook plays down the earlier sensationalist language on this issue. In his recent Bristol Radio interview he says:

Interviewer: Another programme that you did towards the end of the Cook Report was one about Satanic Abuse. Now this is ah, people like Private Eye will say this doesn't exist , what did you find out about it.
Cook: Well, as far as we could see it did, I mean it wasn't as widespread as some people tried to say but on the other hand those who said it didn't exist were clearly wrong....

Sorry? Did I just hear Roger the Dodger switch from the position of his 1989 programme which told you the British Public that the U.K. was rife with satanic groups intent on sacrificing children and back off now to a position where he was blaming OTHERS for over-sensationalising it at the time? Times do change, as the following cutting shows...

Daily Star Repeats False Accusations from Victim Imposters in connection with the Cook Report
There was no such baby! It was all the outpourings of the imaginations of mentally unstable women who invented the crimes whilst under recovered memory therapy. The therapists and social workers WANTED them to be real but they weren't. They talked of them as though they were real, and they passed them to Roger Cook and other members of the media as though proven cases but it was all a phantom of their worst fears.

Reasoned argument does not make good TV apparently. Is that why Cook persisted with door-stepping me instead of listening to my unquestioned expertise on the esoteric? It is clear to me in hindsight that they probably couldn't find anyone else whom they could twist this story to fit around. At that time there was no other character in the burgeoning New Age movement in the U.K. whose business was big enough and who had the audacity to actually hold out for the religious rights of all beliefs, as a universal principle, including Satanists and Christians.

Of course under the British Human Rights Act, Satanists (like all other religious groupings) now have equal rights with other religions and the public are slowly coming around to realise that it is unjust to give one person a precedence over another simply because the former has chosen a better-known spiritual belief. Of course the highest indication of tolerance is when someone recognises inalienable rights BEFORE they are forced to do so in law, as I always have. You can see a copy of the BHRA and learn more about it's implications by clicking on this SAFF link

We Uncover The REAL Threat To Children

Ironically it was our pioneering research to inject a sense of perspective over the frankly hysterical claims being made by Cook's Team which first exposed the endemic and continuing abuse of children by Christian Clergy. Our research uncovered the blind-spot of the British Media and showed that there had been THOUSANDS of cases of physical and sexual abuse by Christian Priests and that there was a continuing ongoing threat to children from clergy and the church (which often covered up for the abusers and moved them elsewhere only to have them abuse children AGAIN). Our shocking statistics were first published in The Black Museum of Clergy Abuse where the now historic strap-line declared

Your child is a thousand times more likely
to be abused by your local Priest
than by satanists.'

Of course since we dared to tell the truth about Clergy Abuse in the early 1990s it has become 'common-knowledge' with dozens of TV programmes exposing examples of the various churches discovering paedophile priests and moving them to new parishes where they abused again, and again. Only last week there was another celebrated case where a repetitive abuser had been whitewashed by the church only to abuse his child victims again. Our statistics prove that three new children will be abused each and every week; week in, week out; year in, year out. This scandal is of world-wide proportions and has cost the Vatican alone Billions of pounds in hush-money payments.

And more from Geoffrey Dickens MP
Published on 4 Sep 2014
According to MP, Geoffrey Dickens, Paedophilia is far more sinister than is being reported.



Ex-deputy director of MI6 is named by MP as 'key' figure who 'manipulated' Westminster VIP paedophile ring
John Mann said George Kennedy Young was 'key' to paedophile claims
Labour MP said ex-deputy director of MI6 took part in 'dubious' activities
Mann added Mr Young was a 'manipulator' who controlled groups of people within which there were paedophile rings in the 1970s or 1980s

PUBLISHED: 21:07, 4 November 2015 | UPDATED: 10:10, 5 November 2015
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3304214/Ex-deputy-director-MI6 -named-MP-key-figure-manipulated-Westminster-VIP-paedophile-ring.html

A former deputy director of MI6 is 'key' to allegations surrounding a VIP paedophile ring in Westminster, an MP has claimed.

Labour MP John Mann said the late George Kennedy Young, known as GK Young, was involved in 'dubious' political activity, including establishing a 'private army'.

He added Mr Young, who later became involved in right wing politics, was a 'manipulator' who controlled groups of people within which there were paedophile rings in the 1970s or 1980s.

Mr Mann, MP for Bassetlaw, claimed he had been handed a copy of the dossier of evidence that was given by Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens to then Home Secretary Leon Brittan in 1984.

The so-called 'Dickens dossier' named several prominent paedophiles. An independent review into the Home Office's handling of child abuse allegations failed to locate a copy of the documents.

It reported last year that there was no evidence to support claims of an official cover-up, but warned it was impossible to draw firm conclusions because of shortcomings in the paper records.

Mr Mann called for the Wanless review to be reopened to find out what happened to the files, which he claims should have prompted investigation.

In a Westminster Hall debate, Mr Mann said Mr Young, who died in 1990, had been named in the first line of the document.

Wow - a whole load of new info from Eric Simon on Faceache today

What happened there HAS TO BE LINKED to what Andrea Davison exposed already. She clearly stated that she was given copies of the Geoffrey Dickens files on paedophile rings in Westminster. She clearly said that at the time what would become main figures of the Labour party, such as John Mann (ex Lambeth Councillor if I remember well) Ken Livingstone, and the future Blairite clique, Tony Blair first, knew what was happening in Lambeth elsewhere but used these informations to make their way into the Labour party and to ultimate power. The continuing cover up is on to avoid all responsibilities to be pointed out. AND IT MAKE ALL SENSE WHY ?
We know Israel was much fabricating Tony Blair's rise in the Labour party. He was introduced to his fundraiser Michael Levy at an Israeli embassy dinner party by who is now Israel's diplomacy n°2 Gideon Meir (and probably still Tony Blair's handler now). And we know how he used all Zionist interests. The aim of Blair to power was to reak the real opposition to economic liberalism and a road to neo conservatism. As Maggie Thatcher gloated : We destroyed the Labour party. So I personally have little doubt that the real muppetering master of the controlled pedo rings were behind both Blair and previously Thatcher ... Victor Rothschild and family ? Peter Mandelson and Tony Blair ? Leon Brittan and cousin Michael Rifkind ex head of Intelligence select committee overseeing MI5/6 the Met's work. Was it that dark web Alaisdair Milne and Duncan Campbell were trying yo blow the lid on through their secret societies program in 1987 ... ? Secret Cabinets, secret lodges ... and the Zionist agenda. Ruining the Nemrod sattelite and anti missile program to be depending on the american AWACS system. Ooooh? Who controls the AWACS company nowadays. The very Zionist Rabbi Dov Zarkheim ... the very friend of MICHAEL RIFKIND. And who, in 1987 ordered as a Scottish secretary the Duncan Campbell's secret society dossiers to be seized in BBC GLASGOW ?!? Yep, Michael Rifkind ! Who ordered Alaisdair Milne to be sacked from BBC director ? Victor Rothschild !
And wasn't Dov Zarkheim the guy in charge of investigating the disappearance of 2.3 trillion dollar from the Pentagons budget which was announced on September 10th 2001 ? One day prior to 9/11 ? And we should remember what Andrea Davison revealed. The well connected North Wales Dolphin Square Zionist Jimmy Savile and quite probably so Kincora boys home paedophile networks were tied and bound to the arms to Iraq trade scandal just as the Bush father admin was glued into the IRAN/Contra scandal behind which lies the Larry King Franklin Boystown paedophile scandal. What we see now is that at least on both sides of the Atlantic we see a shadowy pro Zionist pedophiliac entwined network who manipulated internal external security services, the course of international politics, and the course of the Iran/Iraq war which led to the now situation in the middle east much impacting world peace ... WE HAVE TO DESTROY WHAT CLAMPS OUR SOCIETIES DOWN, through unjustified wars, undue public debt and controlled criminality.

And links between the Leon Brittan Elm Guest House ring were established with french pedo established. In the early 1990s, french special branch handed a tape showing Leon Brittan violently abusing a young boy, sexually and beating him with a cane.This has been acknowledged by a senior HM Custom officer who reported it in front of Chris Faye (ex social worker and anti paedophile activist) and (I'm not sure which one) TOM WATSON or SIMON DANCZUK MP. You can check Chris Faye interview on you Tube with Bill Maloney. On the record.
It came out not long after the Pasteur Doucet scandal erupted in France. He was found dead in 1990. He was advocating for "sexual minorities rights" but surely just as PIE snuk through the NCCL in the 1970's in the UK, he was promoting paedophilia and lowering the age of consent. It came out he was a close friend with an English priest (Nicola Glencross not to be confused with Peter Glencross) who had a parish in France in ex french president Mitterrand early constituency and was a close acquaintance of him. Pasteur Doucet and priest Nicola Glencross both died in mysterious circumstances after it came out they were running a very "professional" photo lab ... They knew a lot about many and it seems Doucet who was becoming vocal (he even was interviewed on popular french talk show) was about to use all his "database" to promote "legality" of pedophelia ... It seems he was well allowed to have his potentialy blackmailing activities BUT NOT to make it public.
Anyway. I'm absolutely convinced the paedophilia networks are internationally connected and run by shadowy forces for blackmailing purposes to achieve political agenda.

Ex-spook admits giving ‘big, big’ names to sex dossier MP

A former British spy admits passing names of ‘sexual deviants’ to Geoffrey Dickens, the MP who compiled ‘dossiers of secret shame’ for Margaret Thatcher’s home secretary Leon Brittan.

The list included the leader of the Commons in Thatcher’s first cabinet, arts minister Norman St John-Stevas.

Tony Holland, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor, spied for MI6 in South Africa in 1969 when he worked as an engineer on the design of the Rössing opencast uranium mine, being constructed in the Namibian desert for the international firm RTZ with South African and Iranian finance.

At his son’s home in Melbourne yesterday, Holland, 79, said:

Around April 1982 I gave a list of names to Geoff Dickens when we met by accident in a first class coach on a two-hour train journey from Yorkshire to London. He was wearing a fancy waistcoat and he looked like a spiv. We were both big fellows at the time.

I had serious legal problems with the West Yorkshire police. My former paymasters in the intelligence services had stage-managed my release from an English prison for a new life in Australia – but I was desperate to clear my name.

I offered to help Dickens with his head hunting of ‘high level deviants’ if he would help me with my own problems. I then told him how we had spied on Norman St John-Stevas and his friend Lord Robin Maugham, with their young boyfriends and guardsmen in both London and Brighton. Sex with men under 21 was still illegal in those days.

The trouble with Dickens was that as far as he was concerned all gay men were paedophiles. He saw no difference.

We joked about ‘shirt lifters’ and ‘babba stabbers’ and laughed about their life style. I related a story to him about Oscar Wilde and told him Wilde’s wife had changed her name to Holland, but they were gladly no relation to me. He laughed and I laughed with him as he tried to say the word ‘pedophile’, emphasizing the ‘ped’, which for some reason he couldn’t say properly.

John Anthony Holland had been a long-term freelance ‘asset’ for the secret services.

Working in South Africa for Fraser and Chalmers, an engineering subsidiary of the British firm Mitchell Cotts, he reported to MI6 in London on a meeting he attended in Johannesburg between mine engineers and the charismatic Israeli defence minister Moshe Dayan.

Moshe Dayan had signed a clandestine trade agreement under which South Africa ensured supplies of uranium oxide for the Israeli atom bomb project at Dimona.

Rössing became the world’s third-largest opencast uranium mine, lying in a desert that was controlled unlawfully by South Africa and therefore beyond the supervision of international inspectors. It became the source of un-monitored supplies of uranium oxide ‘yellowcake’ for rogue nations seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

In an unpublished memoir, now being handled by Nick Hudson, the Australian publisher of the notorious book Spycatcher, Tony Holland wrote:

Dayan wasn’t wearing his eye patch, and there was a gouged eye underneath.

We were told that if anyone recognised him and asked what he was doing in Johannesburg, we were to say that he was there for an operation on the eye.

They weren’t supposed to be developing their own bomb, but we helped them by turning a blind eye.

Holland says he helped to fit miniature television cameras in the ceiling lights of houses in London and Brighton during a black operation to spy on the relationship between an openly bisexual Tory peer, the author Robin Maugham, and Norman St John-Stevas, the colourful Tory MP for Chelmsford who famously described his prime minister as ‘The Leaderene’.

The names on Holland’s list were, he says, simply ‘potential blackmail risks’. The surveillance in defence of government security had not been intended to lead to criminal prosecutions.


He says he was unaware that Geoffrey Dickens, a former heavyweight boxer from London, elected as the Conservative MP for Huddersfield West, had become obsessed with witchcraft, satanic ritual child abuse and homosexuality.

Dickens compiled at least seven so-called ‘dossiers’ before he died in 1995.

Amid allegations of a high-level cover-up of sex offenders in the Thatcher years, Simon Danczuk, Labour MP for Rochdale and author of a book alleging child sex abuse by the former MP for Rochdale Cyril Smith, claimed in 2014 that Sir Edward Garnier MP, a former Tory solicitor general, had tried to stop him naming Lord Brittan in a parliamentary committee:

I’d never spoken to him before in my life but he blocked my way and ushered me to one side. He said: ‘I hear you’re about to challenge Lord Brittan about when he knew about child sex abuse. It wouldn’t be a wise move. It was all put to bed a long time ago.’ He warned me I could even be responsible for his death.

After Danczuk went ahead and alleged in the Commons that Leon Brittan had seen a ‘bundle’ of papers describing paedophile activity at Westminster, Lord Brittan stated that he passed Dickens’s 40-page dossier to Home Office officials for an investigation and that Dickens had later thanked him for his help.


Sir Edward Garnier, a QC who has prosecuted paedophiles, told the Leicester Mercury later:

Simon Danczuk’s remarks are beneath contempt as he ought to know. He describes an encounter. It was a conversation. I spoke to him and he knows why. Anyone who thinks my attitude on paedophilia is lukewarm is very much mistaken. Simon Danczuk’s values are all wrong.

Lord Brittan died on January 21.

One of the ‘deviants’ listed in Geoffrey Dickens’s first dossier was the senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman. Tony Holland now believes that it was Sir Peter who ‘stage-managed’ Holland’s release from an English prison by making a personal intervention at the Court of Appeal in 1982.

Geoffrey Dickens had used the protection of parliamentary privilege to ask the Attorney-General on March 17, 1981, why Sir Peter Hayman had not been prosecuted after the accidental discovery by police that Sir Peter had been member 330 of the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Sir Peter’s obscene diaries and descriptions of sexual fantasies had been found in a rented flat in Notting Hill Gate and used in the prosecution of the chairman of PIE, Tom O’Carroll, who was jailed for two years.

Sir Peter, a wartime army officer, had been director-general of the British Information Services in New York and served as High Commissioner in Canada.

But judging by his cold war government service in Belgrade, Malta, Baghdad and NATO headquarters in Brussels, it was obvious that he had been, and probably still was, a senior member of the British Secret Service – MI6.

In the crisis triggered by the East German government’s construction of the Berlin Wall, Sir Peter had been appointed deputy commandant of the British military government in West Berlin. In 1964 he had been back in London as Deputy Under Secretary of State with responsibility for the United Nations and Eastern Europe. He was married with two children.


On March 19, 1981, Sir Michael Havers QC, the Attormey-General, replied to Geoffrey Dickens’s question:

In 1978 a packet containing obscene literature and written material was found in a London bus. The subsequent police investigation revealed a correspondence of an obscene nature between Sir Peter Hayman and a number of other persons. Altogether a total of seven men and two women were named as possible defendants in the report submitted by the Metropolitan Police to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Director advised against prosecuting any of the nine persons either under section 11 of the Post Office Act 1953 or for any other offence. Among the considerations he took into account were the factors that the correspondence had been contained in sealed envelopes passing between adult individuals in a non-commercial context and that none of the material was unsolicited.

Subsequently the Metropolitan Police submitted a further report which revealed that one of the nine, not Sir Peter Hayman, was also carrying on a correspondence with a tenth person. The police investigation showed that the two shared an obsession about the systematic killing by sexual torture of young people and children. In view of the extreme nature of the material they had sent each other, the Director of Public Prosecutions decided to prosecute them for conspiring to contravene section 11 of the 1953 Act. There is no evidence that Sir Peter Hayman has ever sent or received material of this kind through the post.

It has been suggested that Sir Peter Hayman was considered as a possible defendant following the police investigation into the conduct of the Paedophile Information Exchange which led to the recent trial at the Central Criminal Court for conspiracy to corrupt public morals. That prosecution was against persons alleged to have been involved in the management or organisation of PIE. Although Sir Peter Hayman had subscribed to PIE, that is not an offence and there is no evidence that he was ever involved in the management. At the recent trial, whilst there were general references to members of PIE, including, though not by name, Sir Peter Hayman, there was no reference to any material produced by him or found in his possession.

I am in agreement with the Director of Public Prosecutions’ advice not to prosecute Sir Peter Hayman and the other persons with whom he had carried on an obscene correspondence.

The Director of Public Prosecutions and I remain determined that, where the evidence justifies it, prosecutions will be brought in cases involving sexual acts with children or offences under the Protection of Children Act 1978—indecent photographs of children.

A ‘SECRET’ file from Mrs Thatcher’s cabinet office: PREM19/588 – SECURITY. Allegations against former public [word missing] of unnatural sexual proclivities; security aspects 1980 Oct 27 – 1981 Mar 20 has now been tracked down from the National Archives in Kew by Dr Chris Murphy, lecturer in Intelligence Studies at Salford University.

This file, now released to the Home Office Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse, includes a handwritten briefing note for the Attorney-General marked ‘line to take’:

A full investigation has been carried out and has revealed nothing to suggest that security has been prejudiced.

After working as a well-paid freelance ‘asset’ for both MI6 and MI5 in Britain, Africa, Iran, Venezuela, Poland and Saudi Arabia, with a home in London and a wife, Mina, and child, Tony Holland bought a weekend cottage near his home town of Bradford. Using his own capital, he entered a property developing partnership with local solicitors:

The income tax people had been investigating our partnership for some months when, in January 1981, Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, was arrested and the solictors, my partners became involved in his defence. I told a journalist, Malcolm Hoddy, that the Inland Revenue had been investigating the partnership and I had got myself tangled up with the West Yorkshire police at a very sensitive time. They all knew that Sir Michael Havers was likely to be prosecuting the Ripper personally. Havers would have known about me through the tax investigation into me and my partners.

Sir Michael prosecuted Peter Sutcliffe in a two-week trial at the Old Bailey in May 1981.

On Saturday, March 21, 1981, two days after Sir Michael replied to Geoffrey Dickens’s parliamentary question about Sir Peter Hayman, and one day after the security service report went to Margaret Thatcher, Tony Holland went to Bradford Magistrates Court to stand surety for a ‘slow learning’ 18-year old man called Melvyn Hodgson who had lived next door to Holland’s mother for 18 years.

During Melvyn’s appearance the magistrate said that there were five other charges out against him, including theft of a TV, for which he would require a surety. This was a bit of a shock, but I had come this far so I said I would stand £250 surety for him, and that I would take him to a solicitor on Monday to sort matters out. A solicitor friend Desmond Joyce was in court, and I asked him to check out the case and be ready to see Melvyn on Monday morning.

The following Monday I took Melvyn down to Desmond Joyce . He had done his homework, and produced Melvyn’s criminal record. It was not what I had expected at all. There was a string of nasty ones, threatening behaviour, criminal damage, theft and so on. I felt very let down. No one had given me any hint that he had a record like this, and I did not want to be going surety for a delinquent. So I went off to the police to tell them that I had decided to withdraw the surety.

Holland says he was then arrested and held in custody for two days by two West Yorkshire police detectives who eventually charged him with receiving a stolen refrigerator. Three days after this questionable arrest, he appeared before a magistrate.

The magistrate asked why I had been held so long on so trivial a charge and not granted police bail. The policemen said that they were concerned that I would tamper with the witnesses, and wanted to interview them before I could. The magistrate accepted this, but when he heard that I had no police record, he immediately released me on my own surety.

Holland immediately asked for help from his handler at MI6. He has named the MI6 agent handler who put him touch a solicitor in Leeds.

As a servant of the Crown, I had committed God knows how many crimes, from breaking and entering through to other more serious crimes; but here was this same Crown charging me with receiving a second hand fridge, worth 50 quid new. It was a mixture of farce and nightmare. But it was for real. It threatened my business, my career, my friendships and my family. The good side was that I had a defence team recommended to me by the Firm, and the knowledge that a couple of well-directed questions would discredit the main Crown witness.

He was jailed at Bradford Crown Court in November 1981 for receiving a fridge and stolen plumbing materials worth a hundred pounds. Despite having no criminal record he was sentenced to a total of 36 months imprisonment on three charges. For 34 years he has been trying to fight the conviction.

On December 6, 1981, in Rudgate Prison near Wetherby, now HMP Wealstun, two senior police officers from the West Yorkshire Police came to visit him. A detective superintendent ‘came to the point straight away’:

He had come to offer me a deal: withdraw the complaints and leave the country and all would be forgotten. My appeal would not be opposed, and they would organise my entry into Australia or Canada with a clean police record. (They seemed to know that I had been to both countries.) If I refused, they would make sure that the Fraud Squad got on to me and would not let me go until I was ruined.

It was a very crazy situation. I did not want to leave England, and did not want to go to Canada or Australia. I had done nothing wrong.

My complaints against the police were true as far as I was concerned. All this added up to a good reason for telling them to b* off.

On the other hand, I was in gaol, convicted of receiving stolen goods, my solicitor and barrister were not helping me, the warders had bashed me and broken a rib, and there was no hope of dealing with any of these problems unless I could get out of gaol.

To cut a long story short, I agreed, opting for Australia rather than Canada – papers were put in front of me for signature. Everything would now be fixed up.

Good news travels quickly within the police. On 10 December, Deputy Chief Constable Colin Sampson wrote to me in his capacity as head of Complaints Board noting that the complaints had been withdrawn.

In March 1982 Holland was taken from Wymott Prison in Lancashire to Wandsworth Prison in London for an appearance at the Court of Appeal before the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Lane.

I was the last to be called. The warders led me up a narrow winding staircase to a small door, opened it, and suddenly I was in the court.

It was an astonishing sight. The courtroom was magnificent, lined with rich timber panelling. The dock, where I was, was halfway along the left hand wall. Down in the body of the court were barristers. Behind them sat Mina, with no expression, I guess she was probably lost in thoughts about herself to care about anything else. But the Lords of Appeal themselves dominated the whole scene: three figures in magnificent scarlet robes and full-bottom wigs, sitting on elaborately carved thrones with crowns on top. Talk about the majesty of the law.

I looked down at Mina. She signalled that she had got the money but had not seen the barrister and I signalled that it was all OK.

Just then, a bald headed man dashed in and made for the other group of barristers of the court. He went straight up to talk to my barrister who nodded and looked up at me. The other barristers greeted him with obvious deference, but he never said a word. I still don’t know who he was. I assumed that he was something to do with my case.


Last week, when this photograph of Sir Peter Hayman appeared worldwide alongside a Sky News report that Mrs Thatcher had been in regular correspondence over what she described in a handwritten letter as the ‘Hayman matter’, Holland recognised Sir Peter as the man who had dashed into the appeal court.

He had a unique bald head and bushy eye brows and a fruity voice. Folks were being stopped from entering the appeal court. But this guy was treated like royalty. I thought he was a judge the way he was escorted in to a seat at the front, within two metres of me.

The whole thing stuck in my mind. When I saw his face again, thirty-three years later, I was gobsmacked.

Meanwhile the Lords of Appeal were getting a bit restless, and after a time the one in the middle said, ‘Well, who’s going to start?’ It seemed an odd way to open the proceedings, but my barrister stood up and said, ‘I will, if it pleases your Lordships’.

So their Lordships sat back while he read the statement he had prepared all those months before.

There was nothing new in it. When he’d finished, the judge on the right, the one who’d caused so much trouble in earlier cases, opened up. ‘But surely your client has been doing this sort of thing for years. It’s just that this is the first time he’s been caught’.

‘I cannot comment on that supposition, your Lordship,’ said my barrister and sat down again.

The judge in the middle turned to the other group of barristers.

‘Does any else wish to make any submissions?’

‘No thank you, your Lordship.’

At this point, without further discussion with his colleagues, the judge nearest to me opened a two-page document and started reading it aloud. It was the decision in the case. It found that the main prosecution witness, Melvyn Hodgson, had lied on oath, and concluded that I should be released immediately. I was flabbergasted; three Lords of Appeal had agreed with me, I had not after all put Hodgson up to thieving whilst holding a threat of removal of surety over him. The whole procedure had taken less than twenty minutes.

I went down into the dungeons again to pick up my gear.

Unfortunately for Holland, and without his knowledge, the appeal had been entered only against his sentence and not against his conviction.

We caught an early evening train to Bradford in a very sombre mood. The next day I had a phone call from Chief Inspector John Ellis, of Special Branch. He just wanted to know how things were going.

‘Fine’, I said. ‘Tell you what; I don’t think I’ll bother about Australia. I’ll stay here and take my chances.’ He was aghast. ‘You can’t do that. Let’s talk, we can’t talk over the phone, so come down to the Victoria hotel and we’ll have a chat there.’

The Victoria had always been my drinking place, so I knew it well. I parked, as I always had, in a spot marked as reserved. As I came in Desmond Joyce, the solicitor who acted for Hodgson greeted me. ‘Hello Tony’, he said, ‘I thought you were in prison’.
I gave him the same answer as I had to Michael. ‘Well, you can see I’m not, am I? I’m here.’

John Ellis was already at a table near the bar, in plain clothes. He came straight to the point. ‘Look, Tony. You agreed to go to Australia. You can’t back out now.’
‘Well, give me some time to think about it.’
‘We can’t do that. Your Australian residence visas run out in nine days. You’ve got to leave this week.’

At this moment the manager of the hotel came bustling up. ‘What’s your car doing in my spot?’ he asked.
‘I always park it there. You’ve never complained before.’
‘Move it or I’ll call the police.’

‘OK, call them. Let me introduce Chief Inspector John Ellis. You can call him.’ John nodded. The manager muttered a curse and sloped off.

But this tiny incident made me realise that life in Bradford was going to be different, radically different. It wasn’t going to be fun at all.
I turned back to John Ellis. ‘OK’, I said, ‘I’ll go.’

I was used by now to travelling, so there was no problem with packing in a hurry, though I had an awful lot of it, I managed to put on a good show and was able to freight most things through to Heathrow so as not to have too much to carry on the train.

More of a problem was selling off my properties. I didn’t fancy leaving them in the hands of an agent, but selling them was going to take time. I wanted to know what to do about that so I rang the police and I was able to arrange with him, that once I had re-established residency in Australia, I could come back for a few weeks and sell up.

Tony Holland says the chance encounter with Geoffrey Dickens on the train to London took place when he came back to Britain to sell his properties in April 1982.

On April 23, under the headline MI5 HAS BURGLED MY FLAT, the Daily Mail reported that Dickens telling the Commons: ‘I believe it is possible that MI5 or some other agency may have been responsible for the clumsy break-ins.’

In the general election of June 1983 Dickens won the seat of Littleborough and Saddleworth for the Conservatives after his Huddersfield seat had been abolished.

In August 1983 he handed a second dossier to Scotland Yard, announcing that eight public figures, including ‘a friend of mine’, would be named in the Commons unless the home secretary took action:

I’ve got eight names of big people, really important names, public figures, and I am going to expose them in Parliament.

Big, big names, people in positions of power, influence and responsibility

On November 25, 1983, Dickens announced delivery of a third dossier to Leon Brittan, naming ten men involved in an alleged vice ring at Buckingham Palace.

On March 18, 1986, the Speaker of the House Commons joined Norman St John-Stevas MP, Kevin McNamara MP, Edward Leigh MP, John Ryman MP and George Foulkes MP in condemning Geoffrey Dickens for abusing privilege by naming a doctor who had been accused of rape but cleared after police found insufficient evidence for a prosecution.

Tony Holland made a second fortune in Australia, where he eventually served as an official prison visitor. His close friend Bert Bailey, a former Democratic Labor member of the Upper House of the Parliament of Victoria, wrote letters urging the British authorities to re-open the case. They were supported by the Deputy Premier of Victoria, John Thwaites, now a climate change professor at Monash University.

But despite Australian legal help, despite receiving a personal letter of apology, signed on House of Lords notepaper by Lord Denning, Master of the Rolls between 1962 and 1982, and despite being one of the very first applicants to the Criminal Cases Review Commission, Holland has never able to get his Bradford conviction declared unsafe.

The CCRC investigation of the case uncovered an alarming 1990 letter from West Yorkshire Police to the Home Office, but the Commission did not refer Holland’s case back to the Court of Appeal.

He even discussed the case with the former Director-General of MI5, Dame Stella Rimington, when she was in Australia on a book tour.

On December 28, 1991, Melvyn Hodgson, the man whose evidence might have cleared Tony Holland, was found hanged in his cell at Armley Prison in Leeds. A question was asked in Parliament.
