Melanie Shaw in Peterborough Prison

Accused of Arson with intent to endanger life, and causing criminal damage, in Nottingham. Was due to appear in Nottingham Crown Court today, 25 July at 1100. Denied medication in the Sodexo prison and has been repeatedly moved. She believes this is to disorientate her and prevent her building bonds with other prisoners.

The Beechwood Children’s Home abuse witness is being held in Peterborough prison after unknown police action on Thursday, 10th July, and a secret court hearing on Friday, 11th July 2014. For the personal safety of the individual and in the wider public interest we are naming the witness as Melanie Shaw.

Melanie’s incarceration appears to be based on allegations that she set fire to a neighbours shed - a charge which Melanie denies. Melanie has reported to the UK Column that individuals linked to her bail conditions had been harassing her in recent weeks.

This latest punitive action on a child abuse victim by Nottingham Police and the Courts, follows the removal of her child by Social Services and disruptive action by the Local Council in respect of her home. Melanie claims she had been warned she could have her child taken when she first blew the whistle on Beechwood in 2011.

Melanie originally approached the UK Column because she wanted to expose the truth of the vicious rapes, sexual and physical abuse, and psychological intimidation that she and some 100 other young children suffered at Nottingham Beechwood childrens home.  Clearly frightened of the police after irregularities in their investigations, Melanie strongly suspected that the police, Local Authorities and Members of Parliament, were already attempting to cover-up the Beechwood abuse.

Following Elm House child abuse London, BBC’s Jimmy Savile, and particularly in light of the ongoing exposure of the cover-up of paedophile rings within Westminster and the wider establishment, the UK Column believes that many of Melanie’s concerns are fully justified. Our opinion is reinforced by the fact that five other women known to the UK Column, who, having reported paedophile activity, have been harassed by the police and Local Authorities and later sectioned in psychiatric units. In two other UK Column cases where Social Services have been attempting to steal children, parents have also been falsely accused of arson attempts.

Three Nottingham MPs, Vernon Coaker, Lilian Greenwood and Chris Leslie have so far failed to respond to UK Column enquires as to their action to help Beechwood victims and protect other children from abuse.

Other Peterborough prisoners are also being denied mediaction.

Air Algerie plane crash: mystery of how the plane came down in terrorist heartland

Mystery shrouded the downing of an Air Algerie flight that crashed in the terrorist heartland of northern Mali with 116 people on board – almost half of them French. Almost exactly a week after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile while flying over Ukraine, officials were unable to provide an explanation for the crash in Africa. However, there was speculation the plane crash was an act of terrorism.

The Air Algerie flight disappeared from radar screens over Mali 50 minutes after take off en route from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso to Algiers at 1.47am local time over Mali. The pilot had contacted Niger’s control tower in Niamey to change course because of a storm in the Sahara, they said. France, which has become the second European nation to go into mourning over an airline tragedy in a week, said 51 of its citizens were among those feared dead on Flight AH 5017. Many were said to be expatriates travelling back to France for the holidays. In the hours after the flight was reported to be missing, President Francois Hollande said: “Everything suggests this plane has crashed. Everything must be done to find this plane.”

After a day of fruitless searches, Mali’s president, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, announced debris from the missing jet had been spotted between Aguelhoc and Kidal – an inhospitable area in the desert and a hotbed of Islamist extremism. Kidal is the birthplace of a Tuareg uprising that plunged Mali into chaos in 2012, leading to a coup in the capital Bamako and the occupation of the northern half of the country by militants linked to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). A French-led intervention last year dispersed the extremists, but the Tuaregs still pose a serious threat in the north, as do a string of other fractious Islamist groups.

Jill Dando probed BBC Paedo ring

Murdered TV presenter Jill Dando tried to expose a paedophile ring involving “big-name” BBC stars, a former colleague has claimed.  According to the retired BBC worker, the Crimewatch host was told that DJs, stars and corporation staff were involved in organised abuse. But when she tried to get bosses to investigate the alleged ring and other abuse complaints inside the BBC “no one wanted to know”, the former friend said. Undeterred, Jill is said to have then raised the claims with senior management in the mid-1990s but no investigation took place. The TV host was shot dead a few years later on the doorstep of her London home. The 37-year-old’s murder remains unsolved.

Her ex-colleague, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “I don’t recall the names of all the stars now and don’t really want to implicate anyone but Jill said they were surprisingly big names. I think she was quite shocked when told about images of children and that information on how to join this horrible paedophile ring was freely available. Jill said others had complained to her about sexual matters and that some fellow female workmates also claimed they had been groped or assaulted. Nothing had been done and there seemed to be a policy of turning a blind eye.”

The source told how female colleagues went to Jill, who was then one of the best-known faces on TV. She said: “I think it was in the mid 1990s, Jill was working on almost everything then including Crimewatch and Holiday. She was seen as the face of the BBC and a magnet for women with problems. She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know. I do remember that she gave a file to senior management. I don’t think she heard any more. Other women who complained told Jill they didn’t want to risk their careers by making official statements against individuals as they would lose their jobs and that bosses seemed to ignore it. We all decided the best way was to keep our heads down and to always try to go somewhere with a colleague.”

The BBC said it would look into the allegations but added: “We have not seen anything to substantiate these claims.” Presenters Liz Kershaw and Miriam O’Reilly have both made allegations of sexual harassment at the BBC.

After Jimmy Savile was exposed as a paedophile and serial sex attacker in 2012, fellow BBC presenter Sally Jones spoke of how he had tried to grope her in a lift. She confided in Jill after the attack, adding that the Crimewatch host said “she had had to fend off plenty of unwelcome advances herself”.

Sally said Jill told her Savile was “just a dirty old perv”. Jill was shot dead on the doorstep of her home in Fulham in 1999. Barry George was found guilty of her murder in 2001 but his conviction was quashed in 2008. Jill joined a campaign to help children spot paedophiles the year before she died.

Top cop says missing sex ring dossier ‘still around’

A former top cop says police should be able to find any files about an alleged paedophile ring in Westminster. A dossier passed to Home Secretary Leon Brittan in 1983 has either been destroyed or gone missing. But Ex-Flying Squad boss John O’Connor, 71, says there will be a paper trail. He criticised the recent response from Mr Brittan over the dossier from former Rochdale MP Geoffrey Dickens. Mr O’Connor said: “Leon Brittan has a lot of questions to answer.”

The ex cop added: “I believe the files will still be about somewhere. I think it will still be possible to get hold of some. If nothing else, the record of when each file was received will be recorded and the contents of each file will be listed. There must be a paper trail. If not, then they haven’t archived any correspondence, which is suspicious, and it’s since been destroyed. I find that very hard to accept. Scotland Yard have a very professional archive system and the first port of call should be with their general registry. This will provide a master index to identify the file archive reference number and current location. I believe all the missing files had a reference number, so information can be checked and verified. If they find the details, then the police can still go back and take new statements.”

He said that apart from the general archive, copies could have been retained at the storage facility at Hounslow, west London, or at the Public Records Office at Kew, southwest London. Mr O’Connor recalled hearing claims in the early 1980s of a sex ring operating within Parliament. However, despite expecting that an inquiry would involve his “Special Operations” unit in Scotland Yard, SO1, no probe was ever launched.

He said: “I remember when this was first flying about. I think it was in the early 1980s but then it just seemed to fade away. There was a rumour floating around the Yard at the time that there was a big paedophile ring in Westminster and that a major investigation was likely. We were on standby ready for something special. As SO1 we could quite easily have copped for this investigation as we dealt with these types of investigations. If it had come to us, the files certainly would not have gone missing and would have been investigated. I was interested as it might or might not have come directly to me or could have been passed on to someone I knew. I wasn’t too disappointed as it never happened and just thought it must have been a rumour. In later years certain names were banded about but it was not something I was personally involved with, so I didn’t feel any sort of neglect on my part.” He confirmed that paedophile claims were fairly common at that time.

Two Tory Ministers were named in a damning 1980s paedophile dossier

Sir Keith Joseph and Sir Rhodes Boyson were cited in the “VIP” paedophile document drawn up by Labour’s Barbara Castle. Other MPs, senior policemen, head teachers and clergy were also named. And we can also reveal disgraced former Tory MP Harvey Proctor has been named by witnesses in connection with sex parties and faces being questioned by a Government inquiry. Special branch officers seized Baroness Castle’s file in 1984.

Boyson was described in it as secretly involved with the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) group which campaigned to legalise sex with children. The dossier contained details of how the one-time Under Secretary for Education raised funds and drove promotions for PIE. It was also claimed he arranged for members to meet influential education figures and even distributed their magazine MagPIE.

Joseph, tipped as a future Tory PM and later made a peer, also featured in Baroness Castle’s dossier several times. Last week we told how former Tory activist Anthony Gilberthorpe claimed he supplied underage rent boys for private sex parties at Tory conferences. He said Joseph, Boyson, Dr Alastair Smith and Thatcher’s Attorney General Michael Havers attended them. At least two alleged witnesses have also named former Tory MP Proctor, 67, as being at parties in statements for the inquiry.

He was exposed in 1986 for arranging sordid spanking sessions with young men and was found to be leading a double life and living with an 18-year-old male prostitute at a time when the legal age of consent was 21. A court later heard how the pair had a bust-up when the relationship ended. A source close to the inquiry told the Sunday Mirror: “Proctor’s name has repeatedly been mentioned by at least two alleged victims. He is going to be of key interest.”

Approached for comment last week, Proctor, former MP for Basildon and Billericay, said he was unable to comment because of a gagging agreement he claims to have signed years ago. After Baroness Castle collated her file, she handed it to Don Hale, then the respected editor of her local newspaper, the Bury Messenger. Mr Hale, who had read the contents, claimed a “heavy mob” of Special Branch officers then raided his office and confiscated it a day after paedophile Liberal MP Cyril Smith visited him to demand that he bury the story.

Scotland Yard refuses to name 17 groups it spied on

Police have refused to name publicly the campaign groups that were spied on by an ultra-secretive undercover unit, as an inquiry found a succession of Metropolitan police commissioners may have been guilty of negligence. A sensational report into the unit, known as the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), found that the blame for intrusive surveillance techniques may have gone all the way to the top of Scotland Yard.

It disclosed that the SDS had gathered intelligence on 18 campaign groups, including those set up by friends and family of Stephen Lawrence, the black teenager murdered in a racist attack in south-east London in 1993. Scotland Yard insisted it would not reveal the identities of the other 17 groups that were targeted in an attempt to “ensure their privacy is respected and that no further distress is caused”.

However, relations of Jean Charles de Menezes, the Brazilian shot dead in error by police in the wake of the July 7 bombings, confirmed they had been informed that the SDS gathered information on their activities. They confirmed they were considering legal action and said in a statement: “It is shameful that the Met spied on the legitimate activities of a grieving family who were trying to get the answers they deserved.”

Other groups are understood to include supporters of Ricky Reel, who drowned in suspicious circumstances in 1997; Harry Stanley, who was shot dead in 1999 by armed officers who mistook a table leg he was carrying for a gun; and Dorothy “Cherry” Groce, whose shooting by police prompted the 1985 Brixton riots.

Multi-billion pound govt IT contract 'out of control' – report

A £10.4 billion government IT contract has spiralled “out of control,” with private contractors reaping more than £1 billion in profits at the behest of British taxpayers. In a highly critical report, the National Audit Office (NAO) said that the Aspire contract, designed to streamline government IT services, went drastically over budget after civil servants commissioned more work than expected. The contract – led by services conglomerate Capgemini, along with IT firms such as Fujitsu – has now cost the government double the amount it originally expected, jumping from £4.1 billion to £10.4 billion since it began in 2004. According to the latest figures produced by NAO, the Aspire program accounts for 84 percent of HMRC’s spending on IT.

Due to the structure of the deal, where HMRC relinquished its right to the program’s profits, Fujitsu has reaped at least £1.2 billion ($2 billion) since the initiative began. The NAO warned: "HMRC faces a considerable challenge to reform the Aspire contract while evolving a new approach to its technology suitable for its planned move to digital services. HMRC now has minimal time contingency to do this before the Aspire contract ends in June 2017".

Aspire, the latest in a series of troubled Whitehall technology projects, provides around 650 IT systems in order to collect income tax and national insurance, costing taxpayers £813 million every year. The program will expire in 2017, following new government rules stating that departments should not be dependent on a small number of IT companies when outsourcing work. At an inquiry held on Tuesday, Margaret Hodge, chairwoman of the Public Accounts Committee, said that HMRC’s management of the contract was “unacceptably poor,” claiming that £5 billion had been spent recklessly. “It is deeply depressing that once again a government contract has proved better value for the private companies involved than for the taxpayer,” she said. She added that the department’s “lack of skills” meant it was too heavily dependent on contractors to conduct its work. “All this gives me little confidence that HMRC’s senior team has the capability to manage large and complex contracts,” Hodge stated.

However, HMRC has hit back at Hodge’s claims, stating that the extra costs were incurred because of the government’s reforms to welfare and child benefits, which require the use of real time information. An HMRC spokesman said the department will “continue to improve the performance of the contract over the next three years.”

Japanese citizens somehow still support nuclear industry

(NaturalNews) Virtually no one in the Japanese public supports nuclear energy production anymore, thanks to what many now agree was the worst nuclear disaster ever to occur in recorded history. But this hasn't stopped the Japanese government from continuing to propagandize the public in support of nuclear technology, even going so far as to indoctrinate young children into the lie that cancer is normal since many people get it these days.

These and other tools of propaganda are being used against the Japanese public in a thus far failed attempt to resurrect Japan's nuclear industry, which has all but stalled since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility was struck by a massive earthquake and tsunami back in 2011. A recent interview given by an associate professor at Hiroshima City University highlights how serious this propaganda campaign has become, despite the fact that radiation continues to pour into the air, land, and sea throughout Japan.

Concerning the severity of the situation, Japanese correspondent and interpreter Umi Hagitani, speaking to KWMR 90.5 FM, said that survivors of the disaster are petitioning local and national governments to evacuate remaining individuals close to the damaged reactors. They are concerned that not enough is being done to protect the public from the ongoing spew of radiation, which has yet to subside.

"[T]heir statement demanded that the reduction [in] radioactive exposure is more urgent than the current federal policies and practices in Japan, which is to force people to remain in the contaminated area," said Hagitani. "Many students of the 5th and 6th grade in elementary school, they [are attending] something called a cancer seminar where they learn about how cancer is such a typical story for many people [that] they don't have to worry about it."

Children living in contaminated areas aren't even being told that they have the option to leave. Instead, the government body of Futuba County, which is the closest area to Fukushima that has not yet been mandatorily evacuated, is busy constructing a combined junior high and high school building that it plans to open in 2020. The plan suggests that officials have intentions not to ever evacuate the area but rather to continue day-to-day operations without interruption.

£40m 'bribe' for communities to consider radioactive waste dump beneath them

Communities are to be paid £1m a year simply to discuss the possibility of having a radioactive dump built beneath them, under the latest Government attempts to find a burial site for Britain’s nuclear waste.

Areas which subsequently allow test drilling to take place could reap a total of £40m in payments with "no strings attached" before deciding whether to proceed with the project. Ministers were accused of opting for a “bribing and bullying” strategy after unveiling the plans and admitting that councils in areas considering hosting the dump would no longer have a guaranteed veto to block its construction.

The Government has said it favours a “voluntarist approach” to finding a site for the dump, a so-called Geological Disposal Facility (GDF), which would cost an estimated £12bn and take decades to build. It would be filled with at least six Royal Albert Hall’s worth of radioactive material before being sealed up a century from now as a permanent burial chamber for the waste, which may remain radioactive for 100,000 years.

Efforts to find a willing host have so far proved fruitless, however, with the only area to have expressed interest in hosting the site, Cumbria, last year pulling out of the process. Copeland Borough Council had voted in favour of allowing tests to see whether its geology was safe for such a facility, but was vetoed by Cumbria County Council amid concerns over whether it would be guaranteed the right to withdraw from the plans subsequently. Under the new plans, Cumbria County Council would no longer have such a veto.

Antipsychotic drugs shrink the brain and may accelerate psychosis for schizophrenics, study finds

(NaturalNews) As humans age, brain cells lose some of their volume and the brain shrinks slowly, subtly over time. Brain cells and their connections are scaled back especially when they are not used. This process of atrophy usually begins after age 30 and continues each year. According to a new study spearheaded by the University of Oulu and the University of Cambridge in Finland, the average speed of brain atrophy of healthy individuals is 0.5 percent per year. The team of researchers also discovered a striking difference between healthy participants taking NO mind-altering drugs and schizophrenia patients taking antipsychotic drugs. The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, didn't comment on whether the loss of brain volume was harmful to the patient's cognitive abilities or whether it further contributed to their schizophrenia and related symptoms. However, the researchers did document where in the brain the accelerated atrophy occurred, making a clear distinction: antipsychotic medications shrink brain volume across the board.

In the study, 71 participants taking no mind-altering drugs were used as control subjects against 33 schizophrenia patients on antipsychotic medications, primarily chlorpromazine hydrochloride -- a dopamine antagonist drug with anti-adrenergic, anti-serotonergic, anti-cholinergic and anti-histaminergic properties.

After adjustments were made for gender, education level, alcohol use and weight gain, antipsychotic medications caused degeneration of brain cells by 0.69 percent per year compared to degeneration at 0.49 percent in control participants.

Contrary to popular belief, both older and newer antipsychotic medications had the same effect; all drugs in the study were associated with similar declines in brain volume. The researchers reasoned that the schizophrenia may be causing the brain atrophy in and of itself, but when the dose of the antipsychotic medication was increased, the acceleration of brain atrophy increased.

Brain volume reduction was found especially in the temporal lobe and periventricular area of those taking antipsychotic medications. This area of the brain plays a powerful role in retention of visual memories, storing new memories, processing sensory input, comprehending language, emotion and deriving meaning. This brings up the obvious question: Are antipsychotic medications helping schizophrenia patients or destroying their brain even faster?

It's apparent that these antipsychotic medications are manipulating the function of patients' brains, forcing them to use less of their brain in certain areas. This appears to be counterproductive, inducing further psychosis. Shouldn't therapy for mental disorders encourage constructive brain use and neurogeneration, not destruction of brain cells and brain volume?

FORTHCOMING ON DOOMWATCH:

Next week, on Friday 1 August, our guest will be Marcus Allen of Nexus magazine. As mentioned within our interview with Andy Thomas a couple of weeks ago, a major article in the August/September issue of Nexus Magazine looks at a return to the Moon.  Or rather not, as the technology to do so does not appear to exist any more... Odd that, seeing how easy it was apparently back in the 1960s.  The article is written using information from NASA and US Government documents and makes a compelling case as to whether anyone has actually been to the Moon at all. This will be an extremely topical, as it will be on the day after the publication of the magazine.

We’ll be taking a Summer Break on 8 August and 15 August. And then, 22 August, plans are afoot for us to be live at the Peterborough Beer Festival. Be afraid, be VERY afraid!
