Lord McAlpine  has some 18 years later complained  about  the Scallywag  article but is out of time to sue.  No  complaints were received  by Scallywag at the time of publication in 1994 and Lord McAlpine was niether arrested or questioned by the Police despite 3 affidavits naming him as an abuser and confirmation from the North Wales Police that he had been named.  The other powerful people named in this article have likewise not been arrested or questioned about the allegations. Of course  neither was Cyril Smith, Jimmy Savile or Peter Morrison.   Lets  hope  the focus  moves away from McAlpine back to the abused children.  We can also hope that one day the police will question those named by the children. before they die.

LORD McALPINE AND THE PAEDOPHILE RING (Scallywag Issue 22 (1994)) 

By Angus James 

A gay paedophile ring working from children's homes throughout the 
country leads straight to the doors of Parliament and Tory Party Central 
We have documentary evidence that former Tory party treasurer Lord 
McAlpine indulged in oral sex with an underage boy. We have evidence 
that Derek Laud, close friend of  Michael Brown MP, sodomised an 
underage boy at one children's home so savagely that the child received
hospital treatment for a ruptured anus. And we have evidence that Alan 
Beck, known in gay circles as Sister Latex, and a confidant of Michael 
Portillo since Peterhouse College, Cambridge, was accused of raping an
underage boy in his care. 
This 'rent boy' ring has operated for more than 20 years, and is still 
in operation at addresses all over Britain, despite the fact that the 
mastermind behind it all is at present on bail awaiting trial with 10 
specimen cases against him. 
As the case is sub judice, we will call this man Mr X. It is not the 
intention of this magazine to be in contempt of court. 
There is overwhelming evidence that, for years, young boys in care were
systematically raped and abused by Mr X and many other, influential, 
people; that thousands of pounds of public money was misused in order to 
set up 'training camps' at children's homes in Wrexham, Holyhead, 
Gwynedd, Shropshire and London, where children as young as four were 
schooled in the art of male prostitution. 

The children's homes collectively called the Bryn Alyn Community, under 
the management of Mr X, turned over in excess of £12 million every year. 
It cost £1,000-£1,500 per week of public money to keep a child in care. 
According to the policeman in charge of the investigation, Supt 
Ackerley, £440,000 disappeared from the accounts in 1987 alone. We know 
this money was used to fund luxury flats in London, Brighton and 
elsewhere. These apartments were high class homosexual brothels, where 
Mr X kept, on a permanent basis, rent boys to cater for his VIP clients. 
Regular visitors included not only Lord McAlpine, who always enjoyed 
preferential treatment from Mr X when he turned up at one of the homes
in search of a little boy, but also other establishment figures such as 
the late Lord Kenyon, former Chairman of the North Wales Police 
Authority, Wyn Roberts, MP for Conwy and currently Minister of State at 
the Welsh Office, Adam Mars-Jones, son of Mr Justice Jones and the 
regular film critic on the Independent newspaper, and six police 
officers, among them a former superintendent and prominent freemason in 
Clywd, Gordon Angelsea, who has since retired and is, at present, under 
prosecution for raping a minor. The police are aware of allegations of 
paedophile activities against all the above. 
Part of this story has been reported in other papers. In fact, the 
Observer, the Independent on Sunday, HTV and Private Eye are being sued 
for libel by ex Supt Angelsea. But ever since the illegal activities 
inside the Bryn Alyn Community were exposed, shortly after the local 
council in North Wales had changed from Tory hands to Labour, no one has 
got to the bottom of it. No one has dared mention the name of Lord 
McAlpine in connection with sex with an underage boy, even though there 
is in existence a sworn affidavit from the victim and a sworn police 
statement, and despite the fact that the police in the case against Mr X 
seem to take the victim seriously enough to use him as a chief witness 
for the prosecution. No one has stumbled across the connection between 
the paedophile ring and close friends of Portillo and Lilley. Or, for 
that matter, traced paedophile material produced by one of Mr X's 
companies in Amsterdam to an address in Dolphin 
Square, which we have stated in previous issues was under surveillance
for some time by British Customs and where Portillo and Lilley were 
known to visit. 
Let's recap the story surrounding Mr X and the homes he managed. Until a 
Labour council took control in Clywd in 1989, Mr X had enjoyed virtual 
immunity under the protection of corrupt and implicated policemen and 
with the connivance of the Conservative council who had repressed files 
of photographic evidence which showed beaten and bruised children for
over eight years 
before and were well aware of the rumours gushing out of homes in 
Gwynedd and Wrexham, but who did nothing to investigate them. In fact, 
the moment the council did react, over 300 victims of child abuse came 
to light. In Gwynedd alone there were 146 separate allegations during 
1980-90. It led Malcolm King, chairman of Clwyd's Social Services to 
remark: "We are looking at the biggest failure to protect children in 
the history of Britain". 

The scandal involved girls as well as boys, one as young as nine. There

five illegitimate pregnancies recorded and numerous accusations of 
savage violence and rape perpetrated by members of staff under the 
control of Mr X. Not surprisingly there were also bitter claims of a 
cover up going back more than a decade. Indeed, a former North Wales 
Police Authority Chairman claimed his calls six years before for an 
inquiry had been deliberately stifled. However, in 1989, an internal 
police inquiry led by Det Supt Ackerley took over 1,500 statements. A 
later Joplin inquiry put under suspicion the following six police 
officers, all of whom have now taken early retirement: 

Supt Angelsea 
Sgt Mike Roach 
Sgt Geraint Morgan 
PC David Rodgers 
PC Peter Sharman 
DC Gary Probert 

There were stories of witnesses and people associated with the inquiry 
being intimidated. Alex Saddington, the Welsh co-ordinator for the 
National Association of Young People in Care, was beaten up and had 
chemicals sprayed in his eyes. Steven Messham, a key witness against 
Supt Angelsea was beaten up for the second time. A local BBC journalist 
who had been working on the child abuse case for 18 months was the 
victim of a mysterious burglary. 

Press coverage centred on the testimony of Steven Messham and Mark 
Humphries, boys who gave a gruesome account of how they had been raped 
repeatedly by Angelsea. Humphries described in vivid detail one 
Christmas holiday at Clwyd House in the Bryn Estyn School: "On one 
occasion, he entered my bedroom, attacked me and grabbed my penis. On 
the second occasion, several days later, he entered my room, pounced on 
me and held my wrists with his hand so I could not move. He ripped my 
pyjama shirt 
and trousers off and pinned me to the bed, face down, and raped me. I 
believe I was 13 years old at the time". 
Mr X was later prosecuted on ten counts of sexual abuse. Case files on 
the six police officers under suspicion, including Angelsea, were sent 
to the CPS. No prosecutions followed. The CPS stated: "It is not in the 
public interest to prosecute these police officers". Instead, the men 
who had been responsible for ruining the lives of many young helpless 
boys were nudged gently into retirement with handsome commutation 
payments and pensions intact. All the officers with allegations against 
them were active freemasons. 
The trial of Mr X will take place some time in the summer. 

At the time of the child abuse enquiries, the press only scratched the 
surface of a paedophile porn empire created by Mr X over 20 years. It 
was almost inconceivably evil; to take little boys in care from homes 
owned by Mr X such as 34 Inverness Terrace, Bayswater, which has since 
closed down, or from homes in Castle Road and Finchley Place in London, 
and subject these children to systematic abuse over a period of years, 
so they began to accept this treatment as perfectly normal. Many of the 
victims, as adults, now suffer from grave psychological problems, manic 
depression, and drug and alcohol dependencies. 
There was a great deal of money to be made. Mr X, first and foremost, 
was a businessman. He used to hire out boys as caddies to the more 
prestigious members of Wrexham Golf club. They were forced to do a lot
more than simply carry the clubs. For the right price, boys could be 
collected from any one of his homes and taken out for the night. His 
favourites were lavishly wined and dined, showered in expensive gifts 
and often farmed out tO one of his many rent boy brothels throughout the 
country. For example; Steven 
Fong, who was moved to 66 Stockwell Grove Wrexham, had the house bought 
for him, along with a top of the range white Sierra car. Mr X also 
financially maintained numerous boys at houses in Edgware Road, London. 
Chester Road, Manchester, Nevinson Avenue, South Shields, Queens Park, 
Wrexham, Rock Street, Brighton, and so on. All these addresses were used 
by wealthy paedophiles for sex for cash. 

Mr X also had a ready supply of boys to use in his burgeoning film 
business. Through a company owned by his niece in Copenhagen, paedophile 
material was transported to London for private showings in Dolphin 
Square and nearby in Winchester Street, Pimlico, where Derek Laud, 
Michael Brown, MP's boyfriend, had set up home. 
A source in Dolphin Square told us: "We often have underage boys 
wandering the corridors, totally lost, asking for the flat of a 
particular MP." According to our source, young boys were often guests at 
private parties in Dolphin Square lasting into the small hours. "David 
Steel, who has an apartment here, is rather fond of late nights", our 
source added. 
We can reveal Mr X supplied boys to Dolphin Square on a regular basis.
The rich and powerful trusted Mr X to be discreet. That meant him 
sometimes ruling his juvenile empire with a rod of iron. If a boy 
crossed him the least he could expect was a beating, the worst, as in 
the case of Adrian Jones, 16, was to lose his life. Eighteen months ago 
Jones was living with four other boys in a boarding house in Brighton. 
It was just another brothel, funded by Mr X.  Jones, however, got greedy
and threatened to blackmail his boss. Soon afterwards, the boarding 
house went up in flames. All the boys died in the fire. The Sussex Fire 
Brigade deduced it was arson. A culprit was found. Another young boy 
he had started the fire as a 'prank'. He mysteriously fell under a bus 
and was crushed to death. Today, the Fire Brigade are pressing to have 
the case reopened. The prime suspect is Mr X. 
Apart from the children's homes, the upmarket prostitution, and a 
lucrative sideline in paedophile literature, Mr X had six other 
businesses. With sick irony, through two of his companies, Video People
and Tape to Tape, he produced a song for charity in 1988. The charity 
was Save The Children. By all accounts, it did rather well.

Lord McAlpine and the paedophile ring 

He is one of Britain's richest and most respectable men, a pillar of the 
establishment and a bulwark of the Conservative Party. However, a 
damning police statement and a sworn affidavit from a boy called Paul 
casts potentially ruinous doubt over Lord McAlpine's character. He is a 
copper bottomed, true blue, pervert who, it appears, enjoys nothing 
better than being sucked off by little children. Indeed, long before he 
sought the services of Mr X, McAlpine was indulging his sordid desires. 
In 1965 he was formally cautioned by Strathclyde police for a sexual 
offence against a minor. But he got away with it. Men of his wealth and 
standing usually do. 
However, Paul's crucial testimony does not let Lord McAlpine off so 
easily. In November 1985, Paul was 17 years old and living in a half-way
house owned by the Bryn Alyn Community at Summerhill on the outskirts of 
Wrexham. He was one of Mr X's prize boys, who had been taken into care 
aged four and had continually homosexually (sic) abused at Norton School 
in Warwickshire from the age of eight. The older boys used to bugger him 
every night. Mr X found him when he was fourteen, and was immediately
attracted by the fact that he was a punk and wore red lipstick. He 
immediately persuaded Paul to suck his cock. In the boy's own words: "he 
likes to be fucked and... blow jobs". 

Mr X obviously thought Paul was extremely promising, because when Lord 
McAlpine came in search of a young boy to molest, Paul was chosen as the 
one to service one of his master's most important clients. He was told 
to go out for the night with him, to be good and give him what he 
wanted. At this stage Paul had no idea who the well dressed man with 
greying hair and a roundish face really was. He was taken for an 
expensive meal at a restaurant in Chester. His benefactor paid with a 
gold credit card and Paul noticed a selection of other cards tucked into 
his wallet. 
Driving back to Summerhill, McAlpine stopped the car in a lay-by, where 
Paul was required to suck him off. Afterwards, he was deposited back at
the home with the promise of a Christmas hamper, which never arrived. 
Paul left Summerhill a deeply confused and depressed young man. For a 
while he lived in Brighton and was supported by Mr X, until, finally, he 
broke away and severed all ties. But it was not until Brian Johnson 
Thomas's article about Supt Angelsea appeared in Private Eye in January 
1993 that Paul summoned up the courage to speak out. He contacted Thomas 
and after several detailed interviews was persuaded to give evidence to 
the police. 

Thomas, who had heard various rumours about McAlpine's activities, and 
believed there was a connection with Mr X, showed Paul four photographs 
of completely different men, all of about the same age, who could have 
easily fitted Paul's description. One of the shots was of Lord McAlpine. 
Paul identified him immediately. There was not a moment's hesitation or 
scrap of doubt. He was absolutely certain  McAlpine was the man. 


Superintendent Ackerley, the man in charge of the child abuse 
investigation, took Paul's testimony in person and believed him. A 
formal statement was made to North Wales CID. Two officers interviewed
Paul for two days. His testimony and the photographs used to identify 
Lord McAlpine are now with the police pending the trial. However, we 
have Paul's sworn affidavit given to Thomas. 


He is now 25 and living in a stable homosexual relationship in Brighton. 
He has no connection with male prostitution, and, to this day, stands by 
every word of his statement. 

In Scallywag 21 we told how, soon after their marriage, Mr and Mrs 
Portillo went on holiday with Michael Brown MP, and his 'friend', a 
black youth who they all nicknamed Golly. Along on this mysterious trip 
also went Tony Hutt, who we alleged was an actively gay lobbyist with 
the firm of GJW Government Relations. But who was "Golly"? 
By taking him on holiday the Portillos were in good company. "Golly" is 
no other than half-caste nephew and research assistant of Lord Pitt, and
was the black face pictured at the window of Number Ten as Maggie peeped 
through the partially opened curtains on the day she quit. 
His name is Derek Laud and it was he who introduced footballer Justin 
Fashanu to Westminster's seedier inhabitants. It was alleged by Fashanu 
himself on tape that this included both Portillo and Lilley in a 
three-in-a bed romp, although under intense pressure from somewhere he 
later denied he had ever said it. 
But, if Fashanu was telling the truth, he may have been introduced to 
many other well known Parliamentary personalities, and you can throw in 
some royals for good measure. Laud has also been on holiday with Lilley, 
Chris Chataway, and Jeffrey Archer. He enjoys entertaining his 
boyfriends at fashionable La Caprice where he treats the waiters like 
horse dung. He has often been seen there with Fergie's friend John 
Bryan, and also Diana's hairdresser, who was rumoured to have been 
bribed by Diana to take the rap on a drugs charge. 

After leaving a lunch with Fergie's boyfriend (who was going off to meet 
her elsewhere) he then joined Andrew and a sailor pal at the royal home
in Dorset for all sorts of fun and games. 
He was also involved somewhere in the middle of the Diana-Gilbey scandal 
and is a frequent visitor to David Steel's flat in the now notorious 
Dolphin Square. "Golly" rarely entertains anyone of note at his 
Winchester Street, Pimlico, flat (just around the corner from Dolphin 
Square) but neighbours report he often takes young men home and they 
generally stay all night. The Dolphin Square restaurant, of course, is 
where both Lilley and Portillo dine most Friday nights and was for a 
time under scrutiny by HM Customs after they had intercepted paedophile 
material at Mount Pleasant. 
Young men who have visited him in Pimlico, who we have talked to, allege 
he is 'trying them out' for higher things, Fashanu was one such. 
Laud is a consultant with Ludgate Communications, a high-powered 
political public relations outfit, which moves in political, business 
and royal circles. In this capacity Laud has even written speeches for 
Prince Charles. 

                        <SCALLYWAG 8> 


As a speech writer he may legitimately have visited many prominent 
politicians, but it is unlikely he would have gone on holiday with 
Portillo, Brown, Hutt and Co. to cross the 't's and dot the 'i's on a 
possible oration. 
In his public relations capacity he is a frequent visitor to 
Conservative Central Office where he meets Alistair Cooke, one of the 
original right-wing conspirators of the Maurice Cowling days in 
Cambridge, who has surrounded himself with bright young things, most of 
whom are frequent visitors to Winchester Street. 
But there is more to Derek Laud than this. 

The story goes on in a disgraceful catalogue of abuse, exploitation and 
cover-ups on an unprecedented scale. Among all the sad testimonies from 
the victims, two names emerge that connect the paedophile ring directly 
with Michael Portillo, Peter Lilley and other high ranking Tories. The 
first is the above-mentioned Derek Laud, who wanders with equanimity in 
the House of Parliament. The second is Alan Beck, alias Sister Latex, 
and an old friend of Portillo's from Cambridge. 
We have known about Laud for a long time. There was no doubt about his 
association with Brown. It was an old yarn. The News of The World had 
run an article on Laud serving tea to Brown in a skimpy frilly pinny six 
years ago. We also had reason to believe that Laud had screwed Portillo
and Lilley on several occasions. But it came as a revelation to learn 
that Derek Laud was also a practising paedophile. 
Stephen Hasshim was only 13 when he was introduced to Laud. He was
living in care at Greystones Heath children's home in Merseyside. Gary 
Cook, an associate of Mr X, who is now in prison for child abuse, 
brought Laud in on the recommendation of Mr X. 
He gave him Stephen for the night. 
The child was repeatedly brutally buggered by Laud. He has since stated 
that the man had such a large penis that it was excruciatingly painful.   
In fact, the next day Stephen Hasshim had to go to hospital and receive 
treatment for a ruptured anus. He never met Laud again, but has 
positively identified him and remembers his name. 

Alan Beck was a source on the Portillo/Lilley story. He called us in 
mid-February to scotch the rumours about Portillo's homosexuality. He 
was a set-up and we knew it. He claimed that he was the only homosexual 
to 'come out' at Peterhouse. This was not true, we have spoken to others
who also freely admitted their sexual proclivities at the time. He 
admitted there was an influential ultra right wing homosexual set at 
Peterhouse, but denied he was a part of it. This was untrue. We have 
spoken to other sources at Cambridge who state categorically that Alan 
Beck was deeply involved with the group of gays under the control of 
Professor Maurice Cowling. 


Beck told us on the one hand that Peterhouse was a very intimate college 
with only 120 students, then, mysteriously, could not remember any of 
their names. However, he did remember Portillo, but denied there was any 
evidence that he was gay. This was bullshit. 
Beck may have been a liar activated by interested parties to feed us 
disinformation, but, like Laud, we had no reason to suspect he was a 
paedophile. That is until we were made aware of an incident that 
happened in 1982 involving another fourteen year old boy, David Sellers. 

Alan Beck helped organise a farm holiday for the kids at Greystone 
Heath. The trip was under the stewardship of a newly qualified social 
worker called Alan Langshaw, who was subsequently divorced after the 
non-consummation of his marriage and suspended from his duties during a 
later spell at a home in Formby. Langshaw was a close associate of 
paedophile Steven Norris, who also went on the trip, and has since been
convicted for child abuse. 
While at the farm in Leicestershire, David Sellers was raped savagely by 
Beck. The day afterwards, a distraught Sellers told Wrexham police 
everything that had happened. Beck was questioned at length, but, 
mysteriously, no prosecution followed. This was almost certainly due to 
the fact that Supt Angelsea was the man in charge. It is not 
unreasonable to speculate that Sister Latex called in a few favours from 
his old Peterhouse chums in order to get himself off the hook. 
It remains to be seen whether under the scrutiny of the court, perverts 
like McAlpine, Derek Laud and Alan Beck will wriggle out of it again. 

This whole sordid saga does not come as a surprise. Having investigated 
this and other stories concerning the depraved activities of certain 
Tory MPs, nothing is surprising any more. There seems to be no end to 
There can be little doubt that one of Britain's most ambitious and 
profitable paedophile rings, run by a ruthless pervert, had direct 
connections with leading Tories; that large sums of public money were 
misused to fund a network of rent boy brothels; and that politicians 
involved in the ring, in particular former treasurer Lord McAlpine were 
fully aware of these funds being misappropriated. 
Paul, the boy who claims to have been molested by Lord McAlpine, has 
never wavered from the statement that he gave to police and the 
affidavit he swore to journalist Brian Johnson Thomas. There is no 
reason to doubt his word. Even the police seem happy that Paul is a 
credible witness for the prosecution and is capable of withstanding 
cross examination by eminent QCs. Therefore, taking Paul's testimony 
into account, and the formal warning by Strathclyde police against 
McAlpine for a similar offence in 1965, the conclusion must be that Lord 
McAlpine is not only a crook, but a paedophile. 
Should Lord McAlpine choose to consult his solicitors over the story we 
have printed, we would welcome the opportunity of dragging his name 
through the courts. Should he choose not to take action, then let his 
silence incriminate him. We shall defend our story assiduously, for no 
one was there to defend the children continually abused by their rich 
and powerful overseers. 
There is no evidence, as yet, that either Michael Portillo or Peter 
Lilley was involved directly in the paedophile ring. However, people 
very close to them were. There have been continual rumours that both 
ministers indulge in underage rent boys. Derek Laud, a frequent visitor 
to Parliament and a paedophile, is a strange friend for supposedly 
reputable ministers. Alan Beck, a rapist and child abuser, is equally 
suspect. It is implausible that Portillo and Lilley are not aware of the 
paedophile ring. And it is very likely Laud would have told them. So, if 
they don't rape little boys themselves, they know a man who does. 
Likewise, should Messrs Portillo and Lilley choose to take legal action, 
as we have heard they might, we would have not the slightest compunction 
about the eventual outcome. And, by the way, just for the record, the 
editors of Scallywag absolutely hate satsumas.
