Apparently, brave Mark risked his career and his finances, when he embarked on his dead man destroying, campaign. His career as an 'investigative journalist' that is. Mark's a tad coy about his previous career as a copper, no one seems to know for sure why he left a job he loved, or for how long he was a Detective constable. But, here's something we do know for certain, he was a constable in 1997 and part of a team that arrested this man
Stark had come to St John's in 1995 a year before his previous school, St Paul's in Sussex became entangled in it's own child sex abuse scandal.
For some reason, Surrey Police in 1997 hadn't asked Sussex any questions about the 1996 case, although the latter did confirm that Stark was not in any way involved.
Post exposure, Thomas bragged about the Stark case as being one of the two most important moments in his Police career, the other one being Jonathan King ! Wikipedia has him leading the investigation ! Stranger still, Thomas appears to have briefed his local press about the case, hardly a role normally associated with an ordinary constable.
It seems Surrey Police had been concerned for his welfare at the time of his death issuing an appeal, how things change !
Thomas reflects on his part in one music teacher's downfall on twitter, in July 2011, three months before Jimmy Savile's death and around the time him and Meirion Jones film involving interpol is featured on Newsnight
But, what's even more interesting is the fact that a certain law firm has already won £30,000 damages in 2011 after a choir master is convicted in 2009. The school ? St Paul's Cathedral School, and the lawyer pursuing the civil case ? Yes, it's her guys and gals
No bleating about 'closure' back then, it's all trauma and ongoing counseling for this poor man
From The Argus Sussex local paper dated 2nd March 2011.
Liz has her sights on another St Paul's school in 2014
Prestigious indeed, for St Paul's in Barnes, London is only George Osbourne's old school. And worse still, who should be assigned to lead the investigation (Operation Winthorpe) but the man who DIDN'T investigate Sir Jimmy but found him guilty anyway,
And worse still, just down the road from St Pauls
Apologies if this blog post sounds like an entry to exaro news' write a guest blog for us, competition. It's just happened that way, mainly because of St John's as a matter of fact because, even fresher claims have been received about it too !
Claims that were apparently made to the Police in 2012 !
Mr Brewer continues to protest his innocence after being jailed for six years in 2013. Five years after he graced our screens in a hugely popular show Last Choir Standing !
