The Rochdale 'Puppets on a string' Revisited

Goodness Gracious - I know I said in the last blog post I'd publish more extracts from Steven George's Heartless book, but something much more important has sparked my interest. It stated a week or so ago, around the time the Jay appointment was being discussed on twitter !
Helpful to read Matthew Scott's post here 

It wasn't the numbers of 'victims' that caught my attention though, it was Rotherham, as in Rochdale, as in 'Susie' a genuine victim of a group of callous men, whose plight was IGNORED because, those she accused were Asians, and that just didn't sit right with anyone, not the Police, not social services , not the CPS, NO-ONE ! 

I've often tried to work out just WHY the same agencies were so quick to append guilt to a figure like Sir Jimmy Savile. I'd hinted at the reason in the post above, and, as usual, I experienced another revelation this week 
 'May sue' ? Is that Richard Scorer ? Is that 26th September 2012, a week before the Savile dance began ?
The ITV Slater Gordon Abuse Roadshow was kicking off, not in Leeds, not in Scarborough, not in Shepherds Bush or Broadcasting House, but in Rochdale, following the publication of an official 'report' 

 Hold on, the men were convicted in May 2012 ! Did any of these solicitors consider lodging civil claims against the perpetrators themselves ? I somehow doubt this, better wait for the richer pickings, the pockets of Rochdale taxpayers ! 
 Not sure WHY there are 'another 10 cases in the pipeline' Must be the Savile effect ! 
 I don't know why the thought never crossed my mind to look for Susie in the compo game. She has to be Girl A, why didn't they just call her Susie ? Being one of the FEW genuine abuse complainants whose abusers were eventually tried and convicted following (over) Due Process, the thought of compensatory gain hadn't crossed my mind. I'm not sure how or when it crossed hers, and I certainly do not for one second begrudge her, especially when one considers her journey reporting abuse, one that did NOT start at the doors of the Daily Mirror, Mail or Slater Gordon. No, she did things the right way round - reporting her abusers in 2009. Four years later20th December 2013 

It's certainly worth a read - if only for this honest and uplifting admission on Susie's part 

Bravo Susie - even if it was Slater and Gordon who assisted you in your civil claim. As for the (over)Due Criminal Process, there's something else that's striking about this case, the FORENSIC evidence ! That's DNA to you and me kids ! OMG, how did the CPS fail to prosecute this ?
As for those 1400 projected 'victims' a la Rotherham (see tweet above) the same figure has been used elsewhere. If only these ambulance chasing lawyers, along with the same agencies to 'blame' for ignoring Susie, would stop these wild exaggerations, that can only do harm to genuine victims. I guess exaggeration has it's uses though ! 
Laugh out loud, whatever happened to the 76 politicians ? 
 Thank Goodness for Jimmy Savile eh ?
Police have 'vulnerability' teams know ! Who knew as we say on twitter ?

Susie's testimony of a real abuse victim has been hi-jacked. Why ? I commend you to read Ms Hewson's excellent article here. I'm liking this Lord Wolfe chap,is he still alive ?

Heartless - the Jersey connection

Blimey, here's a 2014 Steven George story that wasn't pursued any further by the British Press, I wonder why ?
 It's now 2014 and, it's the first and ONLY time MP and ex-Mayor Bonner Pink has been explicitly outed as Steven George's adoptive dad and alleged abuser, responsible, amongst other things, for her being sent to Broadmoor, only to be abused there as well by, you know who, in a television room at 17 years old. She was born in 1952 by the way
 She set fire to a children's home ! Another part of George's CV, conveniently unexplored or even mentioned, from the time he first appeared onscreen in October 2012.

Gosh, it would be horrendous if it were true, but is it ? Personally I think that the fact that Bonner Pink has not been mentioned in either Slater Gordon or Operation Midland dispatches, (correct me if I'm wrong), pretty much establishes that George is indeed another fantasist, at least where 'VIP's' are concerned. 
You see in, Heartless post 2007/8 George attempted to tie his adoptive father to a man who was convicted in 2001 of offences relating to boys, a later attempt concerning a girl was thrown out (2008). Now, bear with me guys and gals because, here's where some of the jig-saw stats to fit together ! 
You see, Steven George makes some very curious admissions in his 2008 thing. He actually admits that he only believed that he might have been the victim of a paedophile ring AFTER 2007. Make that 2008 shall we ? 
In 1999 it hadn't dawned on the writer that she might have been the victim of more than just one VIP, which in itself might have sold a few copies.

I'm seeing a pattern here guys and gals, are you ? Find a big story Haut De La Garenne and try and link yourself to it in some way. Being the daughter of an MP who just happens to be dead, and who also just happens to have been closely associated with Portsmouth Council, well, that a manner from heaven for a would be author. And, if that doesn't work for your 2008 revision, well, you can always try Jimmy Savile when he dies ! 
Les, Cummings who got nowhere with his tales in 2008, found himself on the receiving end of a nice apology, along with a nice wad of cash from the then head of Portsmouth Council in 2014
But, what the hell has this to do with Steven George I hear you ask ? Well, nothing, as it happens, except that his ungrateful adoptive daughter was claiming he'd abused her, and one TORY who stood for Pink's seat when he died in 1988 had just been charged with slightly more recent sexual offences !

Quite WHY the council was apologising and paying off  Cummings for something they would NOT admit liability for, smacks of PR to me. Something happened recently so anything that anyone said in the past and dismissed was now hallowed ground, courtesy in part at least to the likes of this woman !
I jest not guys and gals, because look who's slap bang in the middle of the 'home in Cosham' case, George refers to above !

Alan Collins was the solicitor involved with the Jersey compo claimants !
Collins had read Cumming's book and was keen to read others !

Now, it's 2008 and every TV screen is alive with tales of horrific abuse and murder in Jersey. Indeed, Slater Gordon to be abuse solicitors were already handling dozens of compensation claims. And where are the claims involving Jimmy Savile ? Steven George's alone would have sufficed, it's not as if the press hadn't tried it on with him. Why didn't she/he say something then ? 

I don't need to answer that do I ? Next time, I'll publish more extracts from Heartless, ones that prove just how ungrateful, spiteful and HEARTLESS, Mr George truly is !

Heartless - the pre-Savile death version PT 1

May I just start by referring the reader to an earlier post, one of many to feature Steven George, aka Alison Pink who actually posted a few comments of his own two years ago !
Now, unfortunately for Mr George, I have managed to acquire a copy of his original, self published and binded book Heartless. It's listed on Amazon and other bookseller sites as being published in 2006 but the only date I see is 1999. This is important guys and gals because the above comment rather lamely suggests I read the revised revised version, published AFTER Sir Jimmy's death !

Straight to business, here are the two references to Savile as presented in 2014 (if you read Convincing Bill you'll see that my friend Moor Larkin had included these in the comments section, his wry conclusion was, and is, spot on ! 
There were rumours .... I cannot comment on the .. validity of this (page 81) The legal reasons bit refers to the fact that she'd have to account for any claims she published about WHOEVER she is referring to that may or may not be involved in that alleged impropriety, perpetrators and victims alike.
Here's the actual extracts from the copy I have
 Note : Savile started visiting in the 1970's it's important guys and gals !
Now, let's backtrack a wee bit to the preface to this book where Dr T Walmsley Consultant Psychiatrist makes this rather telling observation
A ring of truth ... literally fantastic' The Doctor isn't waging his pension or reputation on the veracity of Janella's recollections is he ? 
And then - the bombshell ! For me that is, because just this minute as I'm typing I note that whatever copy I have, it is certainly NOT one published in 2006 because it contains this. How silly am I ? Never mind, there's method in this partciular madness ! 
2007 ? Let me try to clarify matters by making you aware of the fact that this/these publications are NOT professionally published, they have been hand bound by Steven George and from what I can see, whilst 1999 may have been it's first outing, we do not know WHEN it was written. 
Here's where other bloggers whose take on things is directly opposite to mine, have their uses. Here's how one describes Janella's book journey !
 Look, I'm not going to spend ONE more bloody minute trying to work out when the copy I have was made. I just now that the front pages were updated sometime after 2007 but before Heartless Too was hatched post 2012. 
 I include these facts because I want the reader to know as much as I do/don't - all things Haertless related. I'm getting more heartless by the minute, in fact I'd throw this keyboard up the wall if it weren't for the fact that I really do want to work out as best I can, WHAT might have motivated George to write what he did about the people who appear to have given him so much support ? He refers to the unfairness of the benefits system, take from that what you will !
Let's check out Mr Cummings's story shall we ? The one that, in his (George's) mind 'vindicated' his story' a strange thing to say in itself !

Bear in mind, this was published in 2008 when the Jersey saga was unravelling and the Sun was doing it's £300,000's* best to implicate Savile in Haut De La G ! Is this what prompted George to get revising her missive ? 
 The plot thickens for Mr Cummings post Savile too, as it appears he, along with nineteen others, received an apology and financial compensation in 2014. It's telling that the council who dished out twenty lots of taxpayers money, did NOT admit liabilty, they merely paid out !

But, what does any of this have to do with Jimmy Savile ? My answer to that would be, well nothing at all, save poor Jimmy just happened to be at Broadmoor which is just one of the several institutions in which Alison Pink was placed via the authorities. But, I'll tell you all about that next time ! Hang on in there kids, I ain't done with Steven George and his recollections of Broadmoor just yet !
