The  letter written below is penned  by Simon Regan  Editor of Scallyway Magazine   who's  half  Brother  Angus  James Wilson,  co founder of Scallywag  and editor of its sucessor Spiked  died  in Cyprus  around  1996  whilst the magazine  was investigating  the elite paedophile ring operating in North Wales children's homes and beyond. 

In his letter dated February 2000 Simon documents Scallywag's investigation into the North Wales Child Abuse scandal   and the tragic  cover-up by the Courts and the Establishment.

Whilst the Establishment stole  the affidavits the  abused children had made,  naming their high profile abusers,  notes of interviews were kept by investigator Andrea Davison  only to be seized  by the Derby and North Wales Police in January 2010.

Now that this paedophile ring, which Jimmy Savile procured for, is being exposed its time that the Establishment and  Police returned the Affidavits and the notes of these interviews.  The names given by these abused children, some of whom died tragically, should be investigated anew but who can be trusted to do the investigation?

The daily mail recently  wrote   this article  which opened up the whole North Wales Child abuse scandal up again.  William Hauge   and other Members of the  last Tory  Government  covered up the fact the  Peter Morrison MP  Thatchers close friend  and aid was named by children in the North Wales children's homes as being a  child abuser linked to an elite  paedophile ring.

The Waterhouse Report

By Simon Regan

20 February 2000

The fact that the Waterhouse report went as far as it did is highly commendable, and obviously long overdue. But the trouble with any investigation which tries to break through a 'cult of silence' is the lingering doubts that it will ever get down to the whole full truth of the matter. Waterhouse is probably merely the tip of the iceberg.

The report suggests there is 'no evidence' that Freemasonry had anything to do with the scandal. Yet there were two inadequate and inconclusive police inquiries, including one into a senior officer, by a force in North Wales riddled with freemasons.

There was a consistent lack of initiative on the part of the local Clwyd CC in the face of overwhelming evidence of consistent child abuse at Bryn Estyn, ostensibly because the council insurers advised against any action. This in itself insults democracy in a way that borders on the criminal. By a policy of non-action, both the police and the council became embroiled in a blatant cover-up.

Anyone who has even vaguely become acquainted with paedophilia knows very well that they will go to the ends of the earth to keep their activities absolutely secret. They are professional experts in covering their tracks.

In the early nineties, in the now defunct Scallywag magazine, which I founded, we interviewed in some depth twelve former inmates at Bryn Estyn who had all been involved in the Wrexham paedophile ring, which the tribunal acknowledges existed. Most of these interviews were extremely harrowing and disturbing, but were gently and sensitively conducted over pub lunches where the victim could relax. We subsequently persuaded ten of them to make sworn affidavits which we proposed to use as back up to half a dozen paedophile stories we later published.

Two of these young men, who had been 14-years-old at the time, swore they had been not only introduced to the paedophile ring operating in the Crest Hotel in Wrexham but had later been escorted on three or four occasions to an address in Pimlico where they were further abused.

We took them separately to Pimlico and asked them to point out the building where this had taken place. They were both positive in their identification. It turned out to be the private flat of a well known, and since highly discredited lobbyist who later went into obscurity in some disgrace because of his involvement with Mohammed al-Fayed and the 'cash for questions' scandal. At the time we ran a story entitled 'Boys for Questions' and named several prominent members of the then Thatcher government. These allegations went to the very top of the Tory party, yet there was a curious and almost ominous lack of writs.

The lobbyist was a notorious 'queen' who specialised in gay parties with a 'political mix' in the Pimlico area - most convenient to the Commons - and which included selected flats in Dolphin Square. The two young men were able to give us very graphic descriptions of just what went on, including acts of buggery, and alleged that they were only two of many from children's homes other than North Wales.

There was, to my certain knowledge, at least one resignation from the Conservative office in Smith Square once we had published our evidence and named names.

Subsequently, over a rent dispute which is still a matter of litigation, Dr. Julian Lewis, now Conservative MP for New Forest (East) but then deputy head of research at Conservative Central Office in Smith Square, managed to purchase the contents of our offices, which included all our files. It had been alleged that we owed rent, which we disputed, but under a court order the landlords were able to change the locks and seize our assets which included all our files, including those we had made on paedophiles. It was apparently quite legal, but it was most certainly a dirty trick.

All of a sudden very private information, some of it even privileged between ourselves and our lawyer during the John Major libel action, was being published in selected, pro-Conservative sections of the media.

Subsequently, during a court case initiated by Lewis, I was able in my defence to seek discovery of documents and asked to see the seized files. The paedophile papers were missing. This is a very great shame, because Sir Ronald Waterhouse certainly should have been aware of them.

I believe that the secrecy the Establishment wraps around itself easily equals that of the paedophiles. They really do look after each other and quite professionally cover their tracks.

The real trouble about exposing paedophiles is that former victims of child abuse make lousy witnesses. By the very nature of the abuse, when they are rudely shoved out into the wide world (one of the witnesses, Stephen Messham, for example, was released on his sixteenth birthday on Christmas day after two years of abuse, and had to sleep rough on the streets for four and a half months), they are often deeply psychologically disturbed.

Some of the extreme cases commit suicide, many more were sexually disorientated in the worst possible way. Some became gay prostitutes, others drug addicts, and in nearly every case, at some stage, they needed lengthy counselling. Marriages quickly disintegrated in psychological turmoil and a lot of former victims had real difficulties raising their own children. There are very few victims of child abuse who come out of it without deep scars.

It was all very well for us to take statements from former victims in the cosy atmosphere of a pub lunch, but put them up against an agile and eminent QC whose sole task is to discredit them, and they quickly crumble, even break down in tears. Many former victims now have criminal records of some kind, owing almost exclusively to the abuse itself, and the barrister will brutally exploit this as evidence that the witness is unreliable and tainted. Faced with the choice of a clearly neurotic young man who quickly falls down in the witness box, and a smooth, experienced, erudite and often highly respected culprit, juries tend to give the accused the benefit of the doubt.

I watched it in the now famous Court 13 at the High Court during the libel action between former Supt. Gordon Anglesey and Private Eye (and others) when, despite the fact that under cross examination, Anglesey had to admit that his evidence did not correspond with his own notebooks, the 'other side' subsequently tore the five main prosecution witnesses to pieces in a monumental act of judicial harassment. Like the whole story of child abuse in North Wales and elsewhere, it broke my heart.

The final paragraph in Scallywag's Article  reads "and by the way just for the record the editors of Scallwag absolutely hate satsumas"    

This Satsuma reference  is to   Stephen Milligan who  was a Tory MP and Parliamentary Private Secretary to the notorious Tory cabinet  minister  Jonathan Aitken. Stephen Milligan the PPS  who knew too mutch.   On 7th February 1994, he was reported to have been found tied to a chair with a plastic bag over his head and a satsuma stuffed into his mouth. The usual embarrassment surrounding these cases seem to have prevented the press from carrying out an in-depth investigation into various discrepancies in the case. Aitken, was known to have an particular interest in Sado-Masochistic sex - Milligan wasn't. He was engaged at the time to a woman who is now a Tory MP. More relevant perhaps is Aitken's well-documented links to intelligence agencies and his role in shadowy arms deals that were conducted in the Ritz hotel in Paris in 1993.At this time Aitken was the head of an International Intelligence Service called Le Cercle  and Milligan was taken out in this bizarre way perhaps as a warning to Aitken  or perhaps  to silence him.  Aitken quickly toppled from his high perch shortly after Milligans Death.

What happened to  the Journalists and Researchers who worked  with Scallywag  and its successor Spiked.!

The Co-founders  of Scallywag Simon Regan  and his half brother Angus James Wilson  are both deceased. Angus died in strange circumstances in Cyprus in 1996     and Simon Regan died  in 2000 disappointed he could  not have done more to expose the paedophile ring.    

Simon Stander stayed in Cyprus  following the strange road accident which killed Angus James Wilson. His  was last known to be  teaching in  a University in Costa Rica

Journalist Peter Sawyer went on to write the Book  'GOTCHA'  with  the Knight brothers  and a  former member of the Flying squad.  He  became a producer on a number of documentaries and wrote freelance for both the tabloids and the broadsheets.  read more

Andrea Davison went on to expose arms to Iraq and was an intelligence adviser to the Trade and Industry Select Committee on Arms to Iraq and gave evidence in secret to Lord Justice Scott's Inquiry into Arms to Iraq.  Illness caused by her work in Iraq meant she had to retire  from front line work and so she  carried on working in the background until she was set-up by Cameron's  Conservative Government and wrongly convicted in July 2012.   Andrea is now a refugee  in South America     Read More Andrea Davison, Jimmy Savile, SERCO and How it all...


  1. Please get your facts straight. As Angus's partner and colleague - I was with him in Cyprus. At that time we were not "investigating the elite paedophile ring operating in North Wales children's homes and beyond". The trip to Cyrus was many years later than the reports in Scallywag and totally unrelated.
    Furthermore - his death was not 'mysterious' - his death was a case of manslaughter - in which another member of staff crashed our vehicle in a violent rage. He has never been brought to justice.

    1. Hi Alison, I was at Angus's funeral with some of the Scally team and we never heard the full story about what happened. I was with him in the pub before you left for the trip - I know why you went - and spoke many times to Simon R afterwards before he died. Any chance you can meet up and tell us what really happened? Lady J

  2. Ali thank you for your comment. Perhaps you can comment on the articles in Scallyway and Spiked about the North Wales Child abuse scandal I am sure people would love to hear your first hand experience of the investigation as you say you were the partner of Angus.

    We have copies of your Magazine naming Lord McAlpine and would be fascinated to know what evidence you had against Lord McAlpine I am assuming it was very good because McAlpine did not sue your magazine at that time. You were the first to name McAlpine and I am sure readers would appreciate your help wih this.

    We are seeking the truth and your input would be invaluable. Please give me your contact details so we put the facts straight as you remeber them?

    Please provide the full facts about Mc Apline and Angus and I will publish your addition.

  5. To help readers with details surrounding the sad demise of AngusWilson we used the following written by Simon Regan.!topic/soc.culture.greek/CkJUEfcyVYU

    It appears that Angus, editor of the new magazine Spiked, went to see Asil Nadir to get money to pursue the Paedophile investigation and it is stated he had compromising photographs of Michael Portillo who Spiked had named as connected to the ring in London.
    Simon writes.

    "I was with Angus on the Friday before the visit in a pub in Primrose Hill... had been suplied with compromising pictures of the then Minister of Defence, Michael Portillo"

    Angus is said to have been killed by Mr Stander who went into a rage whilst driving. Simon Reagan says " Onthe 6th September, Angus called my Mother, Valerie Wilson, to tell her the meeting with Diamond and Nadir had gone "brilliantly" and that he was in possession of a "substantial" cheque believed to be tens of thousands of pounds. the next day,.. they went to eat at a local restaurant and then a casino where they had some wine and brandies. (Stander went of on his own) Until then Stander had been behaving rationally, ... Stander drove off at breakneck speed in a screaming temper... he was completely demented, swearing foully at everyone, and threaten to kill everyone including himself. He swerved the wheel from side to side causing the car, at huge speed, to career across the road and eventually it hit a curb and turned over several times.
    Dimaond told them he would "fix" everything and that they should leave the country immediately. In effect, this removed the only two witnesses who could attest at any court proceedings as to just what happened. He rushed them by cab to the airport and put them on the next flight out. He took all Angus's possessions into his own custody, presumably with the cheque and with the photographs. The car was quickly "disappeared"

    Stander made one call to my mother after his release from
    hospital to say he did not know what had happened.

    Diamond remained unapproachable. No one could get through his secretary in the private hotel suite owned by Nadir. He has made no contact since.

    A short statement from Stander was read out to the court. He had given a post office number but no other details. Chan said the statement was "worse than useless" and that his court had been dreadfully frustrated by a complete lack of co-operation from any official in northern Cyprus.

    Stander had previously been a lecturer in economics at the London School of Economics and he had also lectured
    previously in northern Cyprus. On the fateful trip he had
    pointed out the university where he had worked but at the
    time the girls did not take much notice. They believed it was an American university. All we know from Stander's own family, who have closed ranks to protect him, is that he is working as a lecturer and is presumably enjoying the patronage of Asil Nadir.

    Is Asil Nadir worried about what Stander might say to a
    British court about that fateful last meeting? Where are the photographs? Where's the cheque? What actually caused the brainstorm that killed Angus Wilson?

    Simon Regan casts a doubt as to the reason Stander had a brainstorm which caused the death af Angus. Did he mean was he drugged? He also concludes that Asil Nadir kept the photographs of Portillo and gave protection to Stander in Cyprus. Simon Regan does suggest that the compromising photographs of Portillo (with young boys) which dissapeared were a major factor and it is not unreasonable to consider that Standers brainstorm may have been caused deliberatly to either destroy or retrieve evidence.

  6. I am nо longеr sure the place уou're getting your info, however great topic. I must spend some time finding out much more or figuring out more. Thank you for wonderful info I was looking for this information for my mission. Recommended Internet page

  7. Everyone loves what you guys are up too. Such clever work and exposure!
    Keep up the great works guys I've added you guys to blogroll.

    Here is my webpage ... related internet page

  8. If one considers that we are discussing the scum that has risen to the top of society and lauds it over the rest of society is it any wonder that they will go to any lengths to protect one another, except of course throwing the odd one or two minor scumbags under the bus. From abusing our children to murder and stealing our hard earned taxes they feather nice nests for themselves...and all the while they steal more and more from us the workers. Why oh why do people keep on voting for them at Election time? Why do you not vote for anyone that is an alternative except for the 3 main parties? Why? The abuse will never stop unless the British TaxPayers and Voters STOP Voting for the crooks. Labour, Lib Dem and Tory have all pillaged and plundered. And the Diana so-called conspiracy lingers on because she had tapes that would dish the dirt on Buck House and was actively investigating Pedos (who had also been active at the schools where her boys were). Wake up eh or we will all suffer.

    1. This is purely a Tory establishment problem, with a few dishonourable exceptions.
      Your lazy - and establishment serving - 'allthesamism' is questionable.

  9. Read Scalywags Andrea Davison's explosive statement on the child abuse cover-up to the Macur Review

  10. A top cop was removed from a sex abuse probe after naming politicians as suspects. Christopher Allen said the child sex abuse claims against a top Tory were “credible” but not investigated properly. The judge who headed an inquiry into the North Wales children’s homes scandal thought the shock accusations were “too sensitive” to be made public and “best forgotten”.

    What has happened to Cameron's promised inquiry into paedophile networks in Westminster's corridors of power, asks STEVEN WALKER

  11. The paedophile networks inside and outside Westminster are being smothered, because some people in high places have much to hide
