My previous thread on this subject was locked on the basis of linking to 2 nazi web-sites. The first site I did link to – through carelessness - & have apologised to the site-owner for metaphorically walking dog-s**t onto the hallway carpet.
My second link was to David Icke’s site & when the post was being moderated this was mistakenly taken as David DUKE !.
I wasn’t too happy so anyone reading the original comment to that effect please be aware I am not in any way shape or form a sympathiser with or disseminator of the views of nazi scum like Duke & his ilk.
To the post….
The ‘Magic circle’ in Scotland is a description that some Scottish citizens assert applies to a collective ring of purported establishment individuals who have engaged in sexual deviations, homosexual practices and paedophilia.
Twinned with this assertion, there is an overall contention by these same Scottish citizens that there was/is a conspiracy by these purported establishment figures that in order to foster and further their depraved ends they pervert the course of justice.
In Scotland the level of accusations rose to a fever pitch in the late eighties early nineties. Thus Lord Nimmo Smith was commissioned as a joint author of the Report on an Inquiry into an Allegation of a Conspiracy to Pervert the Course of Justice in Scotland (1993).
To readers of a board like RI such a concept has, sadly , reached a state almost of the common-place so the question arises are there aggravating or particular circumstances & factors at work that somehow serve to elevate the Scottish situation into a “special” case , an exemplar ?
That’s difficult – I am not out really to prove a legal case , convince anyone else , still less to pursue some vendetta towards the hugely decent & honest majority of people in Scotland but I do believe there is sufficient material to make an interesting & important essay .
“ Magic Circle” though seems altogether too benign an expression – I rather favour the image of the “Loch Ness Monster” the better to capture a sinister , shapeless entity inhabiting the inner-void whose tentacles fleetingly break the surface of normality , its “occult” & mysterious character a challenge to mainstream beliefs about the nature of our reality.
Some examples of this Monster have been :
The Lockerbie “investigation” / cover-up
The Dunblane “investigation” / “enquiry” & 100 year information embargo
The Hollie Greig child abuse case
( All the above involving the Grampian police force )
but this area is so vast & multi-faceted it is a full-time job to cover all the ramifications – encompassing as it seems to - all levels of
the political establishment
the judiciary & legal profession
& exotic variations on the above such as the rumours about a gay network of semi-criminal elements who were alleged to have good police and legal contacts.
so I want to examine in particular the area of paedophilia to focus upon a milieu of
immoral & arrogant corruption that has spread to a national & international stage under the heel of the New Labour regime

As a taster consider the following :
Child porn arrests 'too slow'
Sunday Herald, Jan 19, 2003
OPERATION Ore, the police inquiry which plans to arrest a further 7000 men across the UK, in addition to Who guitarist Pete Townshend, for buying child pornography online is set to end in disaster with many suspects walking free.
Detective Chief Inspector Bob McLachlan, former head of Scotland Yard's paedophile unit, told the Sunday Herald that the lack of urgency in making arrests will lead to suspects destroying evidence of downloading child pornography before they are arrested.
The Sunday Herald has also had confirmed by a very senior source in British intelligence that at least one high-profile former Labour Cabinet minister is among Operation Ore suspects. The Sunday Herald has been given the politician's name but, for legal reasons, can not identify the person.
There are still unconfirmed rumours that another senior Labour politician is among the suspects. The intelligence officer said that a "rolling" Cabinet committee had been set up to work out how to deal with the potentially ruinous fall-out for both Tony Blair and the government if arrests occur.
Psychopathic weirdo Gordon Brown literally barges a man aside to give a Master Mason handshake to the Governor of the Bank of England.
Let us begin in the 1970’s – a time of radical social ferment – where there emerged in Scotland an organisation called PIE.
This stood for the Paedophile Information Exchange
It was officially extant from 1974-82/84 ( dates vary ) , emerging as a special interest group within The Scottish Minorities Group (SMG) – a gay rights organisation founded in Glasgow in 1969.
Leading figures included Tom O’Carrol, Michael Hanson , Ian Campbell Dunn, Keith Hose, Warren Middleton, Steven Adrian Smith & David Joy.
Its activities could be summarised as internal networking within the paedo “community” , publishing magazines with sociological & psychological justifications for their behaviour , international contact with people such as leading Dutch politician & “boy loving” advocate
Edward Brongersma & propaganda / campaigning efforts directed towards interest-groups likely to be sympathetic & / or useful to the cause of child molestation.
In 1975 PIE attended a conference organized by MIND, the national mental health organization, where it submitted a 17-page document to the Home Office Criminal Law Revision Committee on the age of consent in which it proposed that there should be no age of consent, and that the criminal law should concern itself only with sexual activities to which consent is not given, or which continue after prohibition by a civil court.
As a little lad I recall the media storm that blew up when this organisation began to come to national attention. The story I specifically remember concerned an article written by or about O’Carroll & PIE’s ideas in a magazine for social-workers.
The general public were not , it is fair to say , receptive to the message.
But its early efforts were by no means in vain however :
In 1975 it was invited to affiliate to the civil-rights advocacy NGO the National Council for Civil Liberties – a status it continued to hold whilst 3 future New Labour politicians of the most senior level held top leadership positions in the NCCL :
.Another group, Paedophile Action for Liberation, a Gay Liberation Front offshoot, had also been affiliated to NCCL until it was absorbed by PIE.
PIE, which campaigned for adults to have sex legally with children, only broke off its relationship with NCCL when it went undercover in 1982,
NCCL people were earlier involved in keeping the name of an NCCL council-member, Jonathan Walters, out of the People newspaper when it ran an exposé of Paedophile Action for Liberation, of which he was secretary, in 1975. The People still ran the story, but Walters was not named.
Even more extraordinary is the fact that a current Cabinet Minister was running the National Council of Civil Liberties at the time all this was going on.
The Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP, Secretary of State for Health, became General Secretary of NCCL in 1974. The very next year, 1975, NCCL invited the Paedophile Information Exchange and Paedophile Action for Liberation to affiliate. In the year after, 1976, the now-notorious paedophile Tom O'Carroll was invited to address the NCCL conference, which promptly voted to 'deplore' the use of chemical castration treatments for paedophiles.
Also in 1975, Patricia Hewitt joined the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, as a 'straight', in the same year that Keith Hose of the Paedophile Information Exchange addressed its second annual conference. Hose moved a motion of censure on the conference organising committee for 'relegating paedophilia to ancillary status in conference.' The motion was seconded by Trevor Locke, who just happened to be a member of the Executive Council of the NCCL. 'An awareness and acceptance of the sexuality of children is an essential part of the liberation of the young homosexual,' the motion went on. It was duly passed.
Before she became an MP < currently holding the position of Deputy Leader of the Labour Party >, Harriet Harman was the legal officer in the late 1970s for the National Council for Civil Liberties.
Jack Dromey, whom Harman married in 1982, and who is now Treasurer of the Labour Party, was also involved with the NCCL. He served on its Executive Committee from 1970 to 1979, so he was there when the decision to invite the two paedophile groups to affiliate was made. NCCL also set up a gay rights sub-committee at the same time, members of which included prominent paedophiles Peter Bremner (alias Roger Nash), Michael Burbidge, Keith Hose and Tom O'Carroll.

Winding up this first area of examination how would one sum-up the character of PIE & its membership ?
Helpfully , in 1978-9, the Paedophile Information Exchange surveyed its members and found that they were most attracted to girls aged 8-11 and boys aged 11-15.
PIE hasn’t gone away – it has ofcourse migrated into cyberspace. It still exists on the web under a new name.
Its (ex) members still come to the attention of the authorities :
Paedos' champ arrested
Underage sex campaigner jailed for 'abhorrent' child pornography collection
There’s one final full-stop to the PIE story when prosecutions started happening in 1978 :
five activists were charged with printing contact advertisements < > calculated to promote indecent acts between adults and children.
Others were offered lesser charges of sending indecent material through the mail if they testified against the five. These charges related to letters that the accused exchanged detailing various sexual fantasies.
It eventually became clear that one person had corresponded with most of the accused but had not been tried. After the trial, it emerged that there had been a cover-up: Mr "Henderson" had worked for MI6 and been a high commissioner in Canada.
There’s plenty more - & worse – material I want to cover as I formulate it in the near future.
It won’t be too coherent & it sure as hell won’t be pretty either.
