Second Anniversary of the Pervert Barry Phelps’ Demise

Today, 5 July 2012, marks the second anniversary of the pervert Barry Phelps’ political demise, forced out of office on this day for his distribution of lecherous images of young boys.  This blog was instrumental in revealing the sick mind and activities of this disgusting pervert.  Below, we recall some of the players in this sickening debacle:



Conservative councillor for Earls Court, Phelps used RBKC’s email system over the course of several years to distribute disgusting images and captions of young boys to a select and secretive list of recipients.  Phelps is known as being a bully, spiteful and downright nasty specimen of the human race, but simultaneously, a coward.  Whilst a councillor for the RBKC, he was known to unlawfully breach data protection rules if his purposes were served.

[Edit, 9 July 2012]:  Phelps ran from his RBKC funded computer and internet connection, and using his RBKC email address,  a secret email ring to a select list of recipients, sending out what some might construe as child sexual abuse images.  Although, these images did not quite meet the criminal standard, they were, nonetheless, dispicable and perverted, and showed as his object of desire, young boys.  As stated below, recipients included fellow perverts on the committee of the Earls Court Village Residents Association, and fellow councillor, Mark Daley.



At the time, Mark Daley was the Conservative councillor for the Cremorne Ward, Kensington and Chelsea, and was on Phelps’ select and secretive list of recipients.  Made several excuses when caught.



Personal friend of Barry Phelps, and on the committee of the Earls Court Village Residents Association.  When Phelps resigned, she came out fighting for him, and called for his reinstatement:  What she failed to disclose was that she too had received Phelps’ disgusting pictures over the course of several years.



This Earls Court Village Residents Association committee member is a good friend of Barry Phelps.  He once stood for Parliament, but failed to achieve his goal.  He stated several times that it took him a while to earn Barry Phelps’ trust,and to get on Phelps’ email list.  He is also known to send dog excrement to residents living in the area; one notable recipient served in the governments under three different Labour leaders.



Where do we start?  The council itself, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, failed to condemn either Barry Phelps or Mark Daley. Instead, officers of the council deliberately breached data protection laws in assisting Phelps.

Neither did any of RBKC’s Conservative councillors condemn Phelps, even when some were specifically written to and asked about the matter.  It is for this reason or when instructed to remain silent on the matter, that this blog calls these individuals perverts.  Instead, senior officers within RBKC came out defending Phelps, and a female officer insisted that Phelps’ behaviour was “warranted” at one point in time.  Pervert defender, Jennifer Ware of RBKC’s Standards Committee and also of the Earls Court Society came out in Phelps’ defence:  Ware’s fellow member on the Earls Court Society, Malcolm Spalding (friend and neighbour of RBKC Conservative leader, Merrick Cockell), who stood as the Conservative Candidate to replace Phelps in the Earls Court ward, also failed to condemn Phelps when personally written to.

This is a council which has few morals, and its actions led to the concealment for several months that another one of its councillors, Conservative councillor Andrew Lamont, had been caught up in a scandal involving children.  In this instance, Lamont was charged, tried and convicted for possessing child sexual abuse images.



The Earls Court Village Residents Association is fully embroiled in the Barry Phelps’ scandal, with two of its committee members receiving over the course of several years, the disgusting Phelps’ emails, and by also defending Phelps in public.  A third ECVRA committee member denounced this blog as “not being nice” to the male committee member who received Phelps’ depraved emails, when this blog revealed that committee member’s activities.  No committee member of the Earls Court Village Residents Association has yet to publicly denounce Barry Phelps’ conduct or the conduct of its own committee members.  Instead, the Earls Court Village Residents Association has remained publicly silent over its deep involvement in this scandal.

The Earls Court Village Residents Association represents the so called “interests” of residents in the following streets in SW5:  Wallgrave Road, Kenway Road, Child’s Street, Child’s Walk, Child’s Place, and Redfield Lane.  Its current chair is a Ms Hazel O’Hare, which this blog has written about previously:



A rather vacuous individual who was easily impressed by titles and celebrities.  She was the former Conservative councillor for Brompton ward in Kensington and Chelsea, but her main claim to fame was being Madonna’s former step mother-in-law.  At Kensington and Chelsea, her portfolio included that of vulnerable individuals and children, and child protection issues.  In that role, one would have expected her to distance herself from the pervert Barry Phelps.  However, she remained in constant touch with him.  She was none too bright, and what she was credited for, was always the hard work of other individuals.

Unlike the public persona that was created for her, Shireen Ritchie was a truly uncaring individual.  As soon as her husband fell ill, she placed him in a nursing home in order that she might proceed with her own life without many encumbrances.
