Misery porn and political smears

The trial of Carl Beech shone a light onto the perverted imaginings of a conspiracy theory milieu which liked to spread false claims about a “cabal” of powerful people who raped, tortured and even murdered children (usually, small boys) for kicks.

Emboldened by years of therapy with an astonishingly gullible and inexperienced therapist, Vicky Patterson, Beech penned 57 blogs outlining his sick fantasies, first on a mysterious website called “This Tangled Web” (hosted by someone sporting the fake name of “Kate Swift” – Swift being an deceased American feminist writer), and then on his own blog using the alias Carl Chassereau.

Beech was known for his poems detailing the torture of children. Who could forget his poems about wasps, poppies or drowning? And his metaphor about children being passed round for abuse like “sweets in a bag” in a poem which he published in a NAPAC newsletter in September 2012, using his own name of Carl Beech.

Beech also penned his very own misery memoir, entitled “Too Many Secrets: Surviving A Child Sex Ring”, shamelessly plagiarised from an American oeuvre in two volumes penned by one Timmy Fielding in October 2011 and then February 2012: “Untold Stories: How I Survived a Child Porn Ring” and Silent Victim: Growing Up in a Child Porn Ring”  (both featuring a blonde boy with blue eyes on the cover).

The blurb for Fielding’s Vol. 2 reads:

At home, he has a physically and mentally abusive mother and an absentee father. At his school, still out for summer vacation, Timmy is unwittingly lured into a pornography ring by his third-grade teacher. Once he is in, it is almost impossible for him to get out. Untold Stories: How I Survived a Porn Ring tells Fielding’s true life story. When not being beaten by his mother at home, he was being tortured, forced to perform sexual acts on other boys and men, and coerced into appearing in pornographic movies for a group of men who serve as his surrogate parents.

As Northumbria Police’s Operation Ruby discovered, Beech was a correspondent of Fielding, who now claims to work with special needs children. Beech made some variations in his version, ditching the abusive mother angle, as well as the teacher’s role, in favour of an abusive step-father modelled on Major Ray Beech, and a friend’s father. But there were similarities with the US books: boys raped on tables and at pool parties, and a doctor in the group who treated the boys after they had been hurt.

In reality, Beech was part of an online network which liked broadcasting explicit accounts of child abuse whilst purporting to condemn it. You don’t need to be Sigmund Freud to figure out that their interest in paedophilia is perverse.

It will be no surprise to you that one of Beech’s noisiest online supporters, the infamous German Twitter troll and Miele translator Alan Goodwin (a buddy of Mark Watts), liked to repost a salacious “account” of an alleged attack on a boy by Derek Laud.  I should explain the agenda here.

Goodwin loathes what he called Thatcher’s “paedobrittan” (a slur on Lord Brittan). He claims to have “fled” the UK in 1981, after he graduated from Hull University with a degree in Modern languages. Goodwin is fluent in Swedish, Finnish and German, and at the time when Beech was a fugitive from justice, claimed to have regularly visited Gothenberg, where Beech was eventually arrested.

Goodness me.

Goodwin’s Twitter bio’ used to read “A proud Scallywag throwing/ A Janner in Brittan’s works”, name-checking two prominent British Jews, both of whom Carl Beech accused of heinous crimes against youth.

“Scallywag” is a reference to Scallywag, a muck-racking scandal rag of the early 1990s that published material which Private Eye  would not touch. Its editor Simon Regan was the son of diehard communists, and hated the Conservative party. Regan was also obsessed with the alleged existence of a gay mafia in political circles (you must remember those were the days when, as a result of various spy scandals involving gay men – Burgess, McClean, Blunt – homosexuality was still viewed with some suspicion, and even as a potential liability which enemies of the state could exploit). He conducted interviews of a number of former residents in the North Wales children’s homes scandal, on which Mr Justice Waterhouse subsequently conducted an inquiry. One of them was Stephen Messham.

Goodwin’s prurient interest in paedophilia and “buggery” is evident to anyone who looks at his Twitter feed. Why Miele HQ in Gutersloh continues to employ him is a mystery. He repeatedly posted a fake and scurrilous account of an alleged assault. Accordingly to the extract that Goodwin posted:

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.

Well, we know that Stephen Messham’s false accusations against Lord McAlpine subsequently got the BBC into hot water on 2 November 2012, shortly after the Savile scandal broke. What’s interesting in this extract – Goodwin repeatedly refused to explain where it came from from, incidentally! – is the attempt to link VIP abuse with children’s homes. That has been an abiding theme – indeed, it can almost be called a template – of the Jimmy Savile scandal of October 2012 and associated fallout. Indeed, it appears to have been a cynical and orchestrated  “reboot” of the 1990s care homes scandal, that had involved such homes as Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn.

Unsurprisingly, notorious conspiracy theorists such as the now convicted fraudster Andrea Davison (formerly styling herself “Tara Davidson”) were all over the Welsh care homes scandal, back in the day. They haven’t gone away, this lot! Davison, who claims to be on the run in fear for her life in Argentina after being convicted in absentia at Mold Crown Court of 25 charges of fraud and forgery, is treated as an authority on VIP paedophilia by conspiracy theorist Sonia Poulton, a former associate of David Icke.

Davison, who claims to have worked for the security services, is a former source for Scallywag and, later, Icke. His florid ravings about VIP paedophilia, Edward Heath being a shape-shifting reptile, Lord Janner (whom Icke dubbed “a vociferous campaigner for Jewish causes”) being implicated in trafficking of boys to Dolphin Square, etc., can be seen in his “The Biggest Secret” (1999).

Icke looms large in campaigners’ post-Savile fantasies about an alleged Westminster “paedophile ring”, shamelessly promoted by the likes of Tom Watson MP, the Labour Party’s Deputy Leader, and John Mann MP.

Indeed, thanks to Watts and Exaro, Mann even appeared in a German news programme by Weltspiegel in August 2015, making sensational accusations about his fellow MPs. (Exaro also syndicated programmes on Australian and Russian TV about alleged “VIP paedophile rings” in the UK).

“This was heavy, organised crime”, says Mann on the programme, broadcast yesterday on ARD. Standing across from Parliament, he adds: “I see people walking over there now who should be in prison. And there are people out there who know that.”

But it was all a figment of the imagination, aided and abetted by a comms strategy pushed by the likes of Watts and his merry men Hencke, Conrad, Goodwin et al.

There is a subculture or underground of fantasists pushing a Gothic narrative about an evil, corrupt and decadent elite that abuses children. One such is the bizarrely-named “Door Fairy” who tweets as @oscailandoras.

He (she?) poses as one Nicholas Chadbon, the grandson of Viscountess Leathers, and claims to be a victim of aristocratic sex abuse including – of course! – at Dolphin Square. His (her) blog is entitled:

The Child Holocaust of Britain. A witness account of the British Government’s child murderers and rapists.

Ah, how very Carl Beech. Door Fairy’s tweets include the following:

It would not surprise me if Peter Morrison was involved in Vishal’s murder. The question is: Who was at Elm Guest House on 29.07.1981? My grandmother was and I am quite sure she abducted him after coming for, (and failing to get) me. (9/11/17)

Okay, so nobody is bothered about my grandmother’s murder, indeed, she had it coming. What about the boys she and her Westminster paedophile mates murdered in THE most depraved way? They are buried here: 51.029710-0.549259 and here: 51.029822-0.549044 () (9/1/18)

Yes, justice, revenge, what is the difference? If the government won’t give us justice we must seek it ourselves. They’ve got it coming. (10/6/18)

It is probably not a coincidence that this account started in October 2016, the same month in which Sir Richard Henriques finalised his Report on Operation Midland.

And then there is Anon, whose porno-memoir Goodwin also liked to name-check on his Twitter feed. Like Beech and Door Fairy, this person’s young life was packed with incident:

….in the winter of 1980,…..

I was at the time twelve years old, and prostitute to Peter Hayman. I attended his private apartment weekly to fellate his anal prolapse – this was his personal peccadillo – and to be brutally raped and abused for his entertainment by guests like Harvey Proctor and Derek Laud. I had a dozen other regular ‘privates’, and was required to attend rape-parties at Dolphin Square and elsewhere in Pimlico, London, and around southern England, weekly too. …….

…….I was a ‘groupie’ too: but not to a rock band. When I was ten, eleven and twelve, I wore high heels and lingerie and makeup – in real life I was a boy who liked skateboarding, and racing pigeons with my grandfather – to service a cabal composed of what with hindsight seems like half of the Privy Council and the Monday Club, many if not most political big names of the period, plus a smattering of MI6 and Special Branch, plus the odd regional police chief, or chief-criminal, or both, in town for a jolly.

At fourteen I was too old for the market.

What a pity that Exaro and Beech didn’t succeed in their audacious hoax. Think of the book deals, the after-dinner speaking engagements, the knighthoods…..

Fact trumps fantasy every time.

Editor’s note 15/11/19: In the interests of transparency, our reporter has asked us to point out that she was the subject of a menacing tweet by “Door Fairy”, who is discussed in this article. Door Fairy’s tweet of 9/2/17 at 18.23 to her said: “You and your paedo crew have got it coming. What are you going to do about this?” .
