PARASITE: Ex-Lib-Dem Councillor racked up £2,400 bill ringing sex lines from taxpayer-funded phone

Robert Bleakley

“PARASITE: A creature which obtains food and physical protection from a host which never benefits from its presence.” (Chambers English Dictionary)

A POLITICIAN who used his council-issued mobile phone to rack up a £2,400 bill calling premium rate sex chat lines and sending sexually explicit texts has escaped the sack.

Tyldesley councillor Robert Bleakley, a member of the Wigan Independents, was caught after Wigan Council reviewed its mobile phone contract and found he had spent £2,418.95 at taxpayers’ expense, sparking an investigation.

A council standards committee was told that, as well as calling sex chat lines, Cllr Bleakley had sent sexist and derogatory texts, including one saying: “No wonder women are just cooking and washing material”.

He also sent a message calling ex-Lib Dem activist Alison Smith an offensive name.

More were read to the panel, which Cllr Bleakley did not attend, but are too foul-mouthed and sexually explicit to print.

Wigan Council has now instructed its female employees not to speak to him, and Cllr Bleakley has had his mobile phone removed and been ordered to attend equal opportunities training.

It is the third time Cllr Bleakley has been subject to a standards hearing, after he was found guilty of deliberately altering an e-mail to jeopardise a senior employee’s job in February, and found to have watched porn on his council-issued laptop in March.

Donna Hall, chief executive of Wigan Council, said she was “appalled and sickened” with the language used in the text messages.

She said: “It is quite clear, judging by the content of Cllr Bleakley’s text messages, that he has a problem with women.

“I will not tolerate this prejudice, nor will I allow him to come into contact with female officers until he has undertaken equal opportunities training.”

The panel agreed that Cllr Bleakley had broken the council’s IT policy and breached the councillors’ code of conduct.

She added: “As a result, Cllr Bleakley was given a number of sanctions, including the removal of his IT equipment, including his mobile phone, and removal of his internet access.

“He must also undergo equal opportunities training, and female officers will be instructed not to speak to him.”

MPs’ staff, travel and accommodation costs reached £103 million last year, up from £99 million the previous year and £95 million in 2009 – the peak of the parliamentary expenses scandal.

More than £80 million was spent on staff salaries and £11 million on office costs. The bill for accommodation, covering hotels, rented homes and utility bills, was £6.9 million, while £4.5 million were claimed for travel and subsistence.

The Democratic Unionist Party’s Jim Shannon had the biggest claim at £229,262, including £38,215 on travel and £12,126 on hotels.

The bill for MPs’ expenses reached record levels last year, as more politicians put their spouses and children on the public payroll.

A total of 170 MPs employed relatives, at a cost of more than £4 million. The previous year, 150 MPs had family members on the payroll.

Senior Conservatives who employ relations include Defence Secretary Michael Fallon and Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. Laurence Robertson, the MP for Tewkesbury, employs his ex-wife and his wife. Anne Adams is paid £40,000 to £45,000 as a senior parliamentary assistant, while his ex-wife Susan Robertson gets paid £25,000 to £30,000 as a senior secretary.

Andy Silvester, from the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Taxpayers will be deeply concerned that the cost of Westminster is going up again.

“David Cameron pledged to reduce the cost of politics after the excesses of the expenses scandal. Politicians must be held accountable for their promises. Combined with the ever-increasing number of peers, that promise looks increasingly difficult to keep.”

He added that there was “nothing wrong with employing family members if they’re qualified for the job, but there needs to be total transparency whenever that’s the case.”

The details were released in an annual report by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) on Thursday, which was set up to handle MPs’ pay after the 2009 expenses scandal.

In 2009, the Telegraph revealed that MPs misused their allowances for private purposes for years, causing public outrage. The political scandal resulted in arrests, resignations and dismissals, as well as public apologies and the repayment of expenses. Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, who claimed back expenses for her husband’s adult movies, was one of the high-profile politicians that were exposed.

IPSA chairman Sir Ian Kennedy said reforms to the system had saved £58 million over four years. He said: “Such is the progress made since the scandals which came to light in 2009, our work is attracting the attention of parliaments around the world.”

This week, Marcial Boo, IPSA’s chief executive, proposed that MPs should get a 9 percent pay rise next year, arguing that MPs did an important job and should not be paid a “miserly amount.” David Cameron, whose basic salary as prime minister is £142,500, has opposed the salary increase for MPs.

The basic annual salary for MPs currently stands at £67,060, two and a half times the UK average salary of £26,500.

ARTICLE: COVER-UP IN PROGRESS! New boss of investigation into VIP child abuse claims is linked to Leon Brittan –the SECOND inquiry chief with the ex-MP accused of abuse file cover-up

original (2)

 

  • Fiona Woolf, the Lord Mayor of London, appointed to carry out role of investigating claims of an Establishment cover-up of VIP paedophile rings 
  • The previous chairman Baroness Butler-Schloss stood down because her brother, Michael Havers, tried to dissuade a Tory MP publicly naming a paedophile
  • Home Office last night refused to answer questions about what it had known about Mrs Woolf’s links to Lord Brittan

 

The new chairman of a long-awaited Government inquiry into historic child sex abuse was facing calls to resign last night after The Mail on Sunday discovered her astonishing links to Leon Brittan – a key figure embroiled in the scandal.

Fiona Woolf, the Lord Mayor of London, was appointed to carry out the important role of investigating claims of an Establishment cover-up of VIP paedophile rings on Friday, two months after the original chairman was forced to step down over conflicts of interest.

But this newspaper has found that the top corporate lawyer is also closely linked to Lord Brittan – who is likely to give evidence to her inquiry. It can be revealed that she:

  • Sits on the board of a City of London conference with Lord Brittan, who is accused of overseeing an Establishment cover-up when he was Home Secretary;
  • Judges an annual City award scheme alongside Lord Brittan’s wife, Diana;
  • Gave Lord Brittan’s wife a £50 donation and a friendly good-luck message when she took part in a charity fun run last year;
  • Has been a neighbour of Lord and Lady Brittan in the same exclusive London street for the past decade;
  • Is a governor of the elite Guildhall School of Music where pupils are said to have been abused;
  • Is a patron of a body for female lawyers along with Labour’s Harriet Harman, whose National Council of Civil Liberties once had links to a notorious paedophile group
Last night Labour MP Simon Danczuk – who has led calls for a public inquiry into historic child sex abuse in the wake of revelations about high-profile figures such as Sir Jimmy Savile – questioned Mrs Woolf’s appointment. ‘If it’s found that Fiona Woolf is close to the Brittans, her position is untenable and she needs to be clear about what her relationship is with Leon Brittan, who is one of the most significant figures in terms of suggestions of a cover-up,’ he said. ‘Surely the Home Office was aware of this before they suggested appointing her?’

ARTICLE: Four new historic child abuse cases referred to police by Home Office

An internal review of hundreds of thousands of Home Office files found 13 previously undisclosed “items of alleged child abuse” last year. Four had not been referred to the police.

Four previously unknown cases of historic sex abuse have been referred to the police by Home Office officials in recent months, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

An internal review of hundreds of thousands of Home Office files found 13 previously undisclosed “items of alleged child abuse” last year.

The Home Office said that nine of the 13 cases had been reported to the police – including four which involved the department’s officials.

However, the remaining four were overlooked by civil servants – and have now been reported to the Metropolitan Police.

The cases were unearthed by an internal review ordered by the Home Office’s permanent secretary Mark Sedwill in February last year, months after the scandal involving former Liberal MP Cyril Smith broke.

 

The review – which was carried out by an independent investigator from HM Revenue and Customs – trawled through 746,000 files between 1979 and1999, and uncovered the 13 instances of alleged child abuse.

A summary of the review, which was made public after a Freedom of Information request, said: “This work identified 13 items of information about alleged child abuse, including 4 cases involving Home Office staff.

“Nine of these items of information, including all of the cases involving Home Office staff, were either already known to the Police or were reported to them by the Home Office at the time.

“The Investigator considers that the remaining 4 items of information are likely to be of limited value, as they are either of doubtful credibility or involve the use of a single profile indicator to identify a potential offender.

“However it is recommended that the information is passed to the Police for a proper assessment as this falls within their remit.”

The Home Office said that all the recommendations had now been implemented, which meant they have been referred to the Police.

The review also said that it had “identified 11 centrally recorded files from the 1980s relating to the Paedophile Information Exchange, all of which had been destroyed”.

It added: “The recorded file titles, together with media reports of events at the time, give some indication of the probable contents of these files from which the Investigator has concluded that their destruction was consistent with applicable record retention policies.”

It concluded: “The independent investigator is satisfied that the Home Office did pass on to the appropriate authorities any information received about child abuse in the period 1979 to 1999 which was credible and which had realistic potential for further investigation.

“The investigator believes that the risk of any undisclosed material remaining in files form that period is extremely low.”

Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP for Rochdale who has been campaigning on historic child abuse, questioned why the Home Office had not passed on the cases to the police earlier.

He said: “It’s never the job of the Home Office to try and determine what constituted potential evidence, that’s the job of the police and the Crown Prosecution Service.

“The public will think that people in the Home Office were withholding information from the police which could have led to the successful prosecution of child sex abusers.

“Had the evidence been passed to the police at the time they might have been able to link it to other information in their possession and build a case against someone.”

He added: “The public are left wondering why the Home Office didn’t pass on the four cases to the police when they initially received the information, some years ago.

“The more we delve into historic child sex abuse and the role of the Home Office the more concerns are raised. This is why we now need an independent overarching enquiry into historic child sex abuse.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said it was considering a request for comment from The Daily Telegraph, but could not comment at the time of going to press.

A Home Office spokesman said: “In response to concerns raised in Parliament and the media relating to the handling by the Department of historical allegations of abuse, the Permanent Secretary commissioned an independent review of all relevant papers received by the Department between 1979 to 1999 to identify any information received and the outcome.

“The review concluded the Home Office acted appropriately, referring information received during this period to the relevant authorities.

“The Department has now received a request for further information from the Chair of the Home Affairs Select Committee, Keith Vaz.

“It would be inappropriate to comment further until we have responded to the Chair’s request. We will respond in due course.”

ARTICLE: UK minister rejects bid for probe into historic abuse

The file photo shows a view of the UK’s House of Commons

The British policing and criminal justice minister has dismissed a proposal by a number of MPs calling for an independent official probe into cases of sexual abuse that occurred in the past.

Damian Green told the UK’s House of Commons on Tuesday that a decision on such an inquiry should wait for the outcome of other criminal investigations that are currently underway into the abuse allegations.

More than 120 British lawmakers from all parties backed a call demanding a wider national inquiry into the abuse cases in Britain, which have come to police notice for years but the culprits have never been prosecuted.

Those MPs behind the move cited cases in which young working-class victims were not considered as credible witnesses where suspects were former officials and well-connected.

“Is it not now time that we had an overarching inquiry into the culture at that time of these historical sex offences so that we can both bring closure to that and actually learn lessons from the future?” said British Liberal Democrat MP Greg Mulholland.

Several high-profile figures have been arrested in connection with the multiple investigations into the abuse scandal surrounding Jimmy Savile, a disgraced former TV host with the state-funded British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). He died in 2011, but, following his death, hundreds of allegations of sex abuse and rape of minors became public.

In January 2013, in a report by police and the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), Savile was branded as one of the UK’s most prolific known sexual predators, who used his celebrity status to “hide in plain sight.”
