Since our article that we (OPC) published on 25 October 2012 - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] - We are pleased, and relieved to see, at last, that our revelations are being taken seriously.
A guest house where paedo VIPs are feared to have abused vulnerable underage boys for years is being probed by Police.
A ring of rich and powerful people are said to have used it as a sordid playhouse – and were allegedly snapped and videoed with kids lured from a children’s home. One boy has alleged he was tied up, forced to perform a sex act and made to watch men having sex. A politician, top cop, judge, bishop and household names off the radio and TV are among those said to have been part of the ring between 1979 and 1982.
At these parties , young boys , specially brought over from several childrens homes would be plied with drugs and alcohol.
There is no more ordinary-looking row of suburban Edwardian houses in the country than Rocks Lane, south-west London. But nowhere has given rise to such an outlandish series of allegations than the one formerly known as Elm Guest House. The claims are now being re-investigated by the Metropolitan Police, decades after they were first made. Attempts have been made by care workers to lay bare the secrets of Rocks Lane but to no avail. Whatever the outcome of their investigations in the past, the police seem convinced that a number of serious wrongs need to be righted.
Operation Fairbank is a police investigation into alleged sexual abuse, predominantly the abuse of children, by British politicians in the 1980s. The investigation, led by the Metropolitan Police Service, started in late 2012. The investigation is currently a “scoping exercise” aimed at a “preliminary assessment of the evidence rather than a formal inquiry”. The existence of the operation was confirmed on 12 December 2012, after operating in secret for several weeks.
Five officers are currently working on the inquiry
Claims by Tom Watson MP
Operation Fairbank was set up following claims by Labour Party politician Tom Watson in the House of Commons that the police should look afresh at claims of a “powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and No 10″. Watson raised the issue at Prime Minister’s Questions on 24 October 2012. He suggested that such a network may have existed in the past at a high level, protected by connections to Parliament and involving a close aide to a former Prime Minister; neither the aide nor the former Prime Minister were named. Watson referred to Peter Righton, a former consultant to the National Children’s Bureau, who was convicted of importing and possessing illegal homosexual pornographic material in 1992.
Watson said that files on Peter Righton contained “clear intelligence of a widespread paedophile ring…One of its members boasts of a link to a senior aide of a former Prime Minister, who says he could smuggle indecent images of children from abroad.”
Reported scope of investigation
The investigation was first set up under conditions of secrecy. Sources have reported that it focused on claims of sexual abuse and the grooming of children, involving parties for gay men at the former Elm Guest House in Rocks Lane, close to Barnes Common in South West London, during the late 1970s.
The guest house was run and managed by Carole Kasir between 1979-1982, who died in 1990 at the age of 47. A party was raided by the police in 1982, following which 12 boys gave evidence that they had been abused by men at the house. Kasir was convicted of the charge of running a disorderly house, but allegations of abuse against children, and a subsequent reported investigation in 2003, were apparently not pursued. Two friends of Kasir gave astonishing evidence to the inquest of her death about alleged sexual abuse of children at the guest house
Police have allegedly taken boxes of documents from the London home of Mary Moss, who worked as an advocate for abused children at the now defunct National Association for Young People in Care.
Mary Moss said the documents contained evidence that senior figures from a number of political parties had abused children at Elm Guest House and elsewhere.

A series of reversed photographs which show someone holding hand written notes and photocopied images. More than 130 of these pictures have now been flipped and appear to reveal details of some of the rich and powerful men that were alleged to have frequented the Elm Guest House between 1979 and 1982.
The “accused list” and or “guests”
“To be honest, the photography is not of the highest quality and some of the handwriting is very difficult to read and in some cases it’s illegible. One such image is the list of names that are alleged to have visited the Elm Guest House.
“I have no way of knowing whether this list originates from Mary Moss, if it’s in her own handwriting or even if any of the people listed have ever visited a house in Rocks Lane.”
Rocks Lane is a conspiracy theorists dream, taking in allegations of the grooming of young boys in care for sex, elaborate gay parties involving senior public figures including members of the Conservative Party, charges of a police cover-up and even the suggestion of murder. The police believe that in the context of the Jimmy Savile scandal and renewed claims over the treatment of boys in care in North Wales, there is every reason to look again at an extremely murky saga.
What is known is that in the late 1970s, the Elm Guest House on Rocks Lane was a safe, unthreatening meeting place for homosexual men free from the stigma of a sexual orientation legallised barely a decade earlier. According to a former friend of Carole Kasir, the guest house’s German-born manager, she initially regarded herself as offering gay men an opportunity to “be themselves” without fear. Rocks Lane, which overlooks a playing field, was known to homosexual men as it is close to Barnes Common, itself popular with gay men for cruising.
But Elm Guest House’s willingness to accommodate a small industry (“It became a convenient place for rent boys to take their clients,” says one person familiar with the place), began to attract the attentions of the local police force. One neighbour remembers a months-long police stakeout: “They were there all the time. Police hiding behind the trees to look at the property was a running joke with the neighbours.”
In 1982, the police learned that one of the guest house’s parties was to take place, and the Met’s notorious Special Patrol Group, the precursor of the Territorial Support Group, duly raided the property, resulting in a number of charges being brought against Kasir. The fact that two police officers were in the house at the time of the raid has fed the speculation. The IoS has established that, according to an officer closely involved at the time, two officers were embedded as guests in the property for two or three days, one even pretending to have a broken arm, hiding a police radio in a plaster cast to make secret recordings. If there was a cover-up, it appears not to have involved the local police force, who seems to have been assiduous in seeking to have the place closed down.
As many as 12 boys gave evidence to the police to the effect that they had been abused by men at the house, The IoS has established, but the only conviction was the comparatively minor one of running a disorderly house (ie, a brothel). “Abused boys do not always make the most impressive of witnesses once they get into the witness box,” someone involved in the case said. “The real unlawful activity was underage sex. The police should have been able to make the other charges stick, but the boys were only ever interviewed with a view to them being witnesses against Carole, not as kids who were abused themselves.”
The place continued to attract speculation. Who was at that party has never been established, but as time went on, more and more allegations began to emerge about Rocks Lane. The local police paved the way for the raid, but at some stage Special Branch felt the need to get involved. Why was that, some have asked, unless there was something even murkier going on? Child-protection campaigners alleged that boys had been taken from a local council-run home and abused, a line of investigation that police are now pursuing.
What makes the Rocks Lane story so tantallising for the media is the list of alleged attendees at the parties. One source suggested that Anthony Blunt, former keeper of the Queen’s pictures and an exposed Soviet mole, used to go the parties, but then Blunt’s notoriety made him a magnet for any number of fanciful theories. Those who knew him say the idea is absurd, and that his sexual tastes were far more conventional. Others have spoken of two High Court judges and a Foreign Office official attending. Chris Fay, a social worker who worked for a small charity, the National Association for Young People in Care (Naypic), has alleged that a terrified Kasir had shown him about 20 photographs of middle-aged men with young boys, taken at what he said were kings and queens fancy-dress parties, attended by a number of powerful and well-known people. One, Mr Fay alleged, featured a well-known public figure wearing nothing but a French maid’s apron alongside a young boy nude apart from a tiara.
In 1990, at the age of 47, Kasir was found dead in her flat. The coroner’s inquest concluded that, a diabetic, she had suffered an insulin overdose. Two Naypic employees told the coroner they believed that because she seemingly had not had an insulin injection for three days, she had been murdered, the victim of powerful people who feared she knew too much. Nonetheless, she was found to have committed suicide, worn down by an eight-year battle to have her son, who was taken into care after her conviction, returned to her.
The alleged presence of household names adds to the intrigue, but in a celeb-obsessed age, there is a danger that, should such names not materialise, Rocks Lane will be seen as “just another” child abuse case. Yet police sources fear that dozens of boys were either taken or on the run from care homes to be abused. By any standards, that should be a big story.
Another site reveals that Journalist Sonia Poulton asks Lord Alistair McAlpine, former Margaret Thatcher Conservative Party Treasurer and close aide and confidant, for help in exposing the scale of child abuse in Britain, as below.

I note that I have not received a response to my letter dated November 21, 2012. In the event that this has not been passed on to you, I enclose a copy.
You will note that I am asking you to join me in requesting that David Cameron initiate a nationwide investigation into care home abuse.
The current investigations - Yewtree and Pallial - are too narrowly defined to address how extensive the issue of paedophile abuse in the care system has been over the past 40 years.
Ever since the Savile story broke, I have been interviewing people from the care system. Psychologically-damaged adults who need - and deserve - acknowledgement and closure from the terrible wrongs that were visited on them.
Given your very good fortune, in that you are able to afford swifter justice than many of these victims, I wonder if you would be prepared to extend yourself to help others who also need to be heard.
I do hope this e-mail reaches you. I feel, given how high profile your name has been around this issue, that you are someone who may be able to provide integral support to this quite heinous blot on our country.
COPY OF LETTER SENT 21/11/12:

I have recently conducted interviews with care home abuse victims for TV and press. During my research it has become clear that paedophile activity in the system was not restricted to North Wales.
So it is that I agree with MP Tom Watson in calling for an investigation to extend beyond the Welsh border.
I wonder if you would support me in pursuing a public investigation nationwide? Given your recent experience of being wrongly implicated in something as heinous as child abuse, I feel you are particularly well-placed for such a vital task.
I have amassed significant information that I will readily share. I urge caution, however. Some of the personal testimonies – that of acts of depravity carried out on already vulnerable children – are not for the faint-hearted.
You should know that I disagreed with the Newsnight report. It is appalling that even the most basic journalistic checks were not adhered too. I cannot support what the programme did.
However, I am concerned that the subsequent fall-out has detracted from the issue that we must continue to pursue – that of child abuse in the care system – and may result in victims being reluctant to come forward for fear of being disbelieved.
Lord Alistair, can I count on your support in seeing that the victims receive their long-delayed justice - and that the true perpetrators of these crimes are held to account?
I am writing to request your help in a matter that is dear to my heart.
We at OPC would be interested to see if you actually do get a reply to your letters please Sonia.
Another interesting blog on the internet
Many of the men mentioned on the list are, of course, dead. Just like Jimmy Savile. So, cue the ‘I didn’t do anything at the time but 20/30/40/50 years later I quite fancy some compensation’ band wagon jumpers … if it transpires that any of them are posthumously pursued for a punishment that they can no longer serve.
Just so as there’s no confusion … it is alleged that Leon Brittan, Cliff Richard and Peter Bottomley, for instance, are still alive and kicking. I’d hate for anyone to think otherwise. Speaking ill of the dead is one thing but speaking dead of the living is quite another. by the way, there seems to be quite a few mentions of the Monday Club there. I haven’t got a clue what that’s all about. Does that mean they were members of the Monday Club? Is that something to do with a regular stay at the Elm Guest House? Or is it something conducted outside of the ’unthreatening meeting place for homosexual men’? Perhaps someone could enlighten me.
Incidentally, Mary Moss, development officer for National Association Of Young People In Care (NAYPIC) was recently rumoured to have been arrested by investigators from Operation Fairbank. This turned out to be untrue because a couple of days ago someone claiming to be Mary Moss, or Jo Flores as she seems to be called these days, posted this message on a blog :
‘I was issued with a search warrant on the 9th Jan for all doc’s relating to Carol Cazier.. I am sure I offered them to the Government but maybe my lack of having horses prevented such meeting.. I have had my flat swept by Op ‘you know who’ completely and professionally and in a very tidy organized and friendly manner.. I am now co-operating with them. I have been given my laptop back today but they still hold 19 NAYPIC boxes which I handed over to them today without hesitation..as I had them hidden in a friends.. for them just to check in case there is other related info..and one motherboard computer also which was ceased.. just to put other blogs at bay… with what really happened.. after I published all I have… which you now know.. I am not fair game to have my life intruded on in this way but I trust that in my line of duty to the case and the victims my life will still stay quite private.. other than my work.. as they are the only one’s who now know absolutely everything about me’.. nice
I guess she means Carole Kasir and the message seems a tad garbled but she also goes on to post a letter that she sent to Detective Chief Inspector Paul Settle
Since no one has been arrested in connection with the info I gave Alister Jackson and David Pallister I don’t believe it will help for me to meet with you and further since David is actively working with you, you therefore have the file and as you say it is on the web.
I don’t want to be a part of this, unless the powers that be, meet with me, who suffered the torment and real dangers of being involved in this in the first place.
I’m not being funny about this but my name crops up in this left right and center and that is disconcerting in itself. The only way I would feel protected is to meet with a top Government official and since they seemingly have no interest in me and what I have relentlessly done with my own resources as a volunteer in the meanwhile for child protection for the future dismantling of it and what I advocate for and on behalf of what was once a large membership (before this story took us down) then how on earth do you think that I in my right mind want to be involved in this again.
I am currently trying to get on with the development of children’s rights in this country and am having a hard time doing that because too of the powers that be!
Your attempts to get me involved again neither advise me of any procedure or assure me of anything. People got killed. We got closed down. I am just trying to keep to a more positive way of dealing with this and that is being marred by all this media and police contact. I don’t want to be a part of that. I made it clear, very very clear I want to meet with Government. So what is the problem?
I got a letter from the PM’s office saying the Home Office would meet with me. I then got a letter from the Home Office saying that I was to meet with you. That was a circular waste of time and the co-ordination in that is just a slap in the face so how can I take your nice email seriously.
You know that in all those years of being involved in this it was that that brought me to a very positive conclusion on how we go about helping the victims and potential ones. How does a Government then not want to speak with a key player in that and find out really cool, healing and not rock the boat politics, solutions, that help those victims now especially with such a National interest at present. It is prime opportunity for me to get what I want for all youth. Is that so difficult for the country to accept. There is now a door that could be open but it is not!
Politics is of no interest to me or to the victims but it is to those that see it as a way to bring down Government’s etc but what use is that to the victims. I do not come from a political camp. I had my eyes peeled open to abuses that were taking place and like many we just don’t want it. I know that development of right’s can be a frightening thing for people but we need that to happen for children. Not for those that don’t need it but for those that do. So the procedures and rights have to be in place and they still are not.
What use is there in all this if we cannot take the right steps. I have been hi-jacked in many ways before when even others were set up as puppet organisation’s with controls put in there just so as the Government could say that they were actually doing something. What good are reports etc recommendations. A few arrests and a few innocent ones too. I see this for what it is. And I want no part of it and how dare you insinuate that I put things wrong by publishing what I have done on the web as to be honest it was better than giving it over to the police who COULD be said to be doing exactly what you purport may happen by me publishing it.
…. Instead. you treat us like kids stupid ones, 5 cops a secret op and we all get wounds opened that would prefer to stay well healed…
So you may not like me but I like myself.. and I do not want any more than to be left alone.. if that is okay with you, the Home Office and most especially the Government.
You have all I know. So rest assured I have nothing hidden and I don’t need to be dead or have my family destroyed or set up or beaten up or have an accident or mentally ill person attack me or be followed, hacked or bugged or anything of that nature. If the Gov have a change of heart I would really still like to talk to them.
Perhaps it is all too late to contain but there sure is a way of putting a good vibration on this and that is not happening.. I have been running and running to get positive change.. I am not the type to use this for myself..it needs to happen.. you may see that in years to come.
Well one thing is for sure Mary Moss is slap bang in the middle of huge story. One that appears to involve a “powerful paedophile ring”. The ramifications of which could lead to the biggest political upset we have seen in years … if not ever.
I guess it all depends on whether the Operation Fairbank Elm Guest House “scoping excerise” ever becomes a “formal inquiry”. And whether a formal inquiry would result in any of the ‘rich and powerful’ being charged for their part in a ”powerful paedophile ring”.
Meanwhile, here’s a reminder of the look on David Cameron’s face during Tom Watson’s statement to the HoC, when he mentioned that paedophile rings had been operating out of Number 10, Downing Street :
Cameron then went on to set up Operation Fairbank ...in secret.

Obviously, now, Mary Moss is frightened for her life, though releasing this has probably bought her some protection.
