The London Fund
A social conspiracy to pervert the course of justice underlies the refusal to come to terms with ritual abuse.
This is a serious charge. I will illustrate what I mean by reference to
the Humberside case, where the police still maintain that they failed to
uncover any corroborating evidence. This is curious beccause in the
police files there is a document written by the child whom I call Boy 2.
That piece of paper was found by the boy’s mother in her son’s bag. She
discharged her civic duty by handing it to police.
The evidence came to light because Boy 2 was preparing to run away from
home. He had reached a crisis, and he felt that the only way out was to
abscond – a tragic solution that is adopted daily by children throughout
the nation. Youngsters suddenly disappear without trace, leaving
distraught parents to live out their worst fears.
Boy 2, however, was not to be left to his own devices in the wicked
metropolis; he had “uncles” to make sure of that. There was a plan; one
that, in this particular case, was thwarted just in time, when his
mother found his sports bag stuffed with the clothes he was planning to
take with him.
Boy 2 even had a “passport” to a new life: it lay crumpled on the top of
his clothes. It was the scrap of paper on which he had scrawled the
information that was essential to provide him with the food and lodgings
he needed in London.
The paper contained the following details: the boy’s age, his name, and
the number “444″. That number, we have seen, was his unique
identification tag: and it was given to him when he was initiated into a
satanic sex ring.
But there was another word on the piece of paper, one that meant
nothing to Boy 2′s mother; at the time, when she asked me about it, I
knew nothing about the significance of the word either. The word
“Scorpio” was scrawled by the number 444. As a result of my enquiries, I
was able to establish that Boy 2 had been about to step into a
nationwide satanic conspiracy. Boy 2 unwitingly provided us with our
first insights into that criminal structure.
This is how the organisation worked.
When the boys earned money from prostitution, part of the proceeds were
retained by men who placed the cash in what the boys said was “the
London fund”. The boys were assured that they would not go to gaol, if
the police started snooping around, for the money they had stashed away
would finance their swift departure to London. There – they were told –
they would be found work in showbiz.
The truth, I now know, is more sinister.
Boy 2 was hooked into an network of paedophiles who seek boys for prostitution. Sometimes, boys die.
Mark Tildesley, a 7-year-old who was kidnapped from a fairground in
Reading, Berkshire, on June 1 1984, was one victim of that conspiracy.
That was the year that Christopher Laverack was kidnapped, sexually
assaulted, and murdered.
In 1985, Barry Lewis, aged 6, was snatched from his home in South London and murdered. One man was convicted for that killing.
Jason Swift, aged 14, also fell prey to the perverts who stalk our
streets. Four men were gaoled for a total of 62 years for his death.
But the list of unsolved child murders is a long one. Operation Orchid
is the code name for a major police operation that has its incident room
in an East London police station. The detectives led by Chief
Superintendent Roger Stoodley are searching for clues to the fate of
eight or nine boys who have met their fatal end at the hands of just one
Operation Orchid received tip-offs that there was a satanic connection
to their investigation, but the detectives could find no corroborative
evidence. “We progressed as far as we could, but we could not prove it”
says Roger Stoodley. “We were busy on other things and it fell by the
I suspect that one day police will uncover evidence that will
substantiate the claims that satanists are a feature of that paedophile
The cult behind the paedophile sex ring is called Scorpio. That name is
the common denominator: it is being disclosed by children throughout the
The significance of that clue has been overlooked by parents who have
been told by their children that they are “scorpios”. In one case,
involving two small London children, the mother laughed when her son and
daughter both insisted on identifying themselves by that name. She told
them they had got their birth signs mixed up, and she informed them
that they were born under different signs. She did not know that the two
children were struggling to find words to reveal to their mother that
they had been initiated into a black magic coven by their father.
That mother carries a heavy feeling of guilt, but she is not to blame.
No-one had alerted her to the evil that is preying on children in our
society. It as not until she had been placed in contact with other
parents whose children had fallen foul of Scorpio that she realised that
on the lips of her two children was the clue to a living nightmare.
Unwittingly, that particular mother may possess vital clues to the
identities and locations of East London members of Scorpio. Her husband,
before being locked up for assaulting her, asked his wife to hide an
atlas of Britain and a street map of London. When she examined the maps,
she found that they contained marks that identified names and streets
which had no significance to the family. Now, she believes that the
marks identify members of Scorpio.
The mother fled from London in 1989, after her children had disclosed
what had happened to them in public parks in the dead of night. A year
later, London detectives tried to track her down, to obtain those maps.
She has refused to hand them over. She is reluctant to co-operate with
the police because, in the past, every time she sought the help of
detectives, she was made to feel guilty for her children’s disclosures.
I find myself in a similar situation, having fallen foul of the legal
system. This now inhibits me from disclosing all the facts known to me
about the London fund. The police have asked to interview me, but if I
were to discuss everything I know, I would be liable to go to gaol.
But I can say that the police are on the right track. Scorpio is a
paedophile-based network. A sophisticated organisation exists to handle
money that is being gathered from boys around the country and placed in
bank accounts. The network can tap those funds to pay for the boys’
upkeep when they are whisked away to London.
I fear that the police will fail to solve all the child murders until
they begin to explore the satanic tentacles of the sex rings that are
behind the disappearance of boys from their homes.
But it would be wrong if public attention were to be directed
exclusively at those children who succeed in boarding trains bound for
London’s King’s Cross or Paddington Stations. I would like to pause, for
a moment, to emphasise that other children are also being “lost” to us
even while they remain with their families. That tragedy is a by-product
of the social conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
