Senior Tory 'wrongly linked' to child abuse
Senior Tory 'wrongly linked' to child abuse - Telegraph.co.uk
'Mistaken identity' led to top Tory abuse claim - The Guardian
The Guardian and Telegraph have named Lord Alistair McAlpine - as a person 'wrongly linked' to child abuse.
It is being suggested that the late Jimmie McAlpine, who is related to Lord Alistair McAlpine, may be the person referred to by witnesses as a child abuser.
Lord Alistair McAlpine was close to Margaret Thatcher and helped finance her campaigns.
Jimmy McAlpine lived near the Bryn Estyn children's home in Wrexham; he chaired the north of England builders Alfred McAlpine Ltd.
Steve Messham, a former resident of Bryn Estyn, said he had been taken to a Wrexham hotel and sexually abused by a top Tory more than a dozen times.
A local councillor, Keith Gregory, who was also a victim of abuse at Bryn Estyn, told the Guardian he did not believe Lord Alistair McAlpine was the person involved.
Keith Gregory said he thought a different member of the McAlpine family who lived locally may have been mistaken for Lord McAlpine.
Steven Messham told the Waterhouse inquiry his abuser was dead, whereas Lord McAlpine is alive.
Local concillor Keith Gregory said boys from Bryn Estyn would be taken to the homes of two McAlpine family members in the area - Gerwyn Hall and Marchwiel Hall, both a few miles from Wrexham town centre.
Gerwyn Hall was occupied by Jimmie McAlpine, who died in 1991, six years before the Waterhouse inquiry began.

"In May 2003 the London Evening Standard reported that Lord McAlpine was the 'well-known and anonymous collector' for whom Bloomsbury Book Auctions was selling a collection of 344 'fashion and eroticism' photographs, including '10 snaps of very young girls in very suggestive poses by Graham Ovenden'.

Steven Messham told Channel 4 News that, aged 16, he broke into the flat of one of his abusers to get hold of photographs of the abuse he suffered.
The photos reportedly showed lots of men, including a top politician, raping boys.

The Crest Hotel in Wrexham, 'where child abuse took place'.
On 8 November 2012, Channel 4 News broadcast live from outside the former Crest Hotel – now Wynnstay.
They interviewed Sian Griffiths the former head of personnel at Clwyd Council.
Sian Griffiths ‘kept every detail’ in ‘extensive files’.
"The manner of the Waterhouse inquiry was discussed, with recollections of by Griffiths of a witness asked to list people possibly involved so they ‘rattled names off…and got to the point where he named somebody who has been high up in the governement’ at that point he was stopped from giving evidence by Waterhouse.
"Other criticism was voiced with an example of a different high profile public figure being named, but was not called to give evidence, when ‘nobodies’ were named and yet were called."
Sian Griffiths referred to 'a local public servant at the time' and how one victim was not able to give evidence against him as he was terrified, saying 'thats how powerful the man is'.
Later this mystery person was referred to as being “key” to any investigation.
The former local public servant 'was also named in a list of offenders in a paedophile ring shown to Channel 4 news'.
"Channel 4 displayed sections, without names, of the lists they were given saying it was claimed around 50% of the names on the list were not investigated.
Channel 4 stated the “high profile local official” is named in this list.
Further, referring to the previously reported ‘pulped’ copies of a Clwyd Council report into abuse, Channel 4 say they believe copies still exist.
Channel 4 suggested that the two new investigations ‘could do worse than start at the kitchen table of Sian Griffiths’.
Wrexham.com hopes that the reams of evidence on show on that kitchen table are independently secured as soon as possible to ensure any investigation – criminal or otherwise – can refer to them.

Re the fire in the property at Brighton/Hove (Palmeira Avenue) which killed the following people [ages of persons are as in 1992]:
Timothy Sharpe, 28, the party host
Paul Jones, 33, a trainee chef from Brighton
Adrian Johns, 31, unemployed, from Brighton
Andrew Manners, 29, an electrical maintenance engineer from Cheltenham
Mabel Roberts, 48, a nurse from Colwyn Bay, North Wales
Timothy Sharp was celebrating his twenty-eighth birthday when the fire that killed him broke out in his flat.
The fire was on 18 April 1992, and is referenced in the Waterhouse Report in paragraph 21.40.
Another attendee at the party was Trevor Carrington who survived the fire but was later apparently run down and killed by a truck (on 21 April 1992, on the Lindfield to Ardingly Road), hours after allegedly confessing to starting the fire!
However, the fire investigator who examined the building, which had no fire escape, said the fire was started in three places at once!
Other reports have it that the Palmeira Avenue flat was linked to tycoon Nicholas van Hoogstraten.
The whole thing stinks...

According to the Daily Star:
Police investigating a child sex ring at the heart of Margaret Thatcher’s government were warned: "Stop investigating if you want to keep your jobs."
The boy said that he was one of a number of boys regularly having sex with top people.
Daily Star Sunday
Belgium's Dutroux gang supplied girls to the elite, to be tortured and murdered.
The boy named a British Cabinet minister, who is still alive.
The boy referred to judges, members of the European elite and senior civil servants.
The boy disappeared, after blowing the whistle.
The police received allegations against the minister from a number of sources.
The police discovered top people were paying the boys to attend sex parties at 'millionaire properties'.
Some of the top child abusers were said to have flown in via Royal Air Force Northolt on the outskirts of London.

One boy told the police that wealthy men from Belgium attended the parties.
The married Cabinet minister the boy named held a series of top jobs in government.
Police sources in the minister's home region said there are allegations that he was once found trying to abuse the son of a friend.
