“Sexualisation of children ‘risks softening attitudes towards abuse'”

The following is from the Daily Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/crime/jimmy-savile/9776373/Sexualisation-of-children-risks-softening-attitudes-towards-abuse.html

 

“Adults are failing to take child abuse seriously because of the increasing sexualisation of young girls, a former High Court judge has warned.”

Overexposure to inappropriate images is blunting attitudes towards sex attacks on under-16s, said Baroness Butler-Sloss, who chaired the Cleveland Child Abuse Inquiry.

She suggested there was a danger that under-age girls were no longer being seen as victims because of perceptions over the way some children act and dress.

Speaking amid a continuing fall out over the Jimmy Savile scandal, the judge also hit out at the “old fashioned” attitude towards sexual abuse victims in some local authorities and police forces.

The controversy should act as a “wake-up call” in the way society deals with child protection issues, she said.

The comments come amid growing concerns over the sexualisation of children.

Ministers have pledged to protect young people from advertising, marketing and media content that exposes them to inappropriate images or commercial pressures.

It follows a high-profile report from Reg Bailey of the Mothers’ Union who called for action to shield children from the “increasingly sexualised wallpaper surrounding them”.

Baroness Butler-Sloss, former president of the Family Court division of the High Court, was asked on Radio 4’s Today programme whether sexualised images caused child abuse.

She said it was not a driver of the original problem, insisting it was often “innate” in the perpetrators of sex attacks on under-16s.

But she added: “I think it encourages people not to take it seriously”.

The peer said that some adults “didn’t think that these girls were victims” and insisted there was a “complete misunderstanding of… the fact that the law is there to protect children and you don’t start treating children under 16 as bad girls”.

“You start saying how can these children be protected from this sort of behaviour? It is the men who are to blame, not the girls,” she said.

Baroness Butler-Sloss also said the scandal was a “wake up call” to society, adding that “some police officers in some forces” had an “old fashioned” view of sexual abuse victims.

”What worries me about Jimmy Savile and the appalling story is everybody will be terribly upset for a while and then it will die down,” she said.

”There have been a whole lot of scandals … the story comes up again and again. You get it in all kinds of places.

“The Jimmy Savile case is a wake up call and I think that is a good thing.”

Speaking yesterday, Peter Davies, chief executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, insisted reforms were rapidly improving the system.

He said: ”I am optimistic we have already learned significant lessons and we have moved on and we are going to move significantly this year – not just based on the Savile case, of course, but what we are currently learning about group and gang-related child sexual exploitation.

”It is implicit in the fact we are learning and improving there is something to be improved upon.”

Authorities believe that Savile was one of the country’s most prolific child sex offenders.

Operation Yewtree was launched in the wake of hundreds of allegations made against Savile following a television documentary featuring some of his victims.

Police have said a total of 31 allegations of rape have been made so far.

Some 589 people have come forward with information relating to the scandal, with a total of 450 complaints against the BBC presenter and DJ himself, mainly alleging sexual abuse.

An Apperitif

The following was compiled on a certain former councillor for RBKC.  It begs the questions, inter alia:  Where did this money come from; was the money received as backhanders; was the money declared; what else has been hidden away from the authorities?  For legal reasons, this extract from this disturbing report raises many important questions, but no adverse inferences or conclusions should necessarily be drawn from the following!


X1 does have an interest in a country cottage in the xxxxxxxxxxxxx village of xxxxxxx which cost only £50,000 in August 2000 (a suspiciously low price).  The address is:  x xxxxxx xxxx, xxx  xxxxxx, xxxxxxx xxx xxx.  Although the property is in the name of his partner X2 , leaked documents show that X1 paid £32,500 and X2 contributed £17,500.  X2 appears to be concerned about the property.  “It is the only residence I own and I guess that I could make it my principal residence for tax purposes”, he wrote in a note to his accountant.  “I am likely to sell this property and so far I have never mentioned it to any tax authorities in the UK or USA.  In the old days this would not have mattered but post 9/11 and with efforts to counter (money) laundering, this needs to be thought about”.  Last year X2 did indeed report his interest to the IRS in the USA. 

The leaked documents show the byzantine and complex offshore ownership of X1’s London properties at xx xxxxxxxx xxxxxxxx and xx xxxxxx xxxxx which areowned by two BVI [British Virgin Islands] firms.  X1 also owns property in Dublin because he has a beneficial interest in an Irish company called xxxxxxxx xxx.  All three firms are administered by a Jersey company called xxx and  xxxxxxxx has two Jersey bank accounts.

X1 banks at Coutts, has numerous other accounts and no less than 35 credit cards.  There is no doubt that he has substantial capital (at least four properties) and income.  It is demonstrably untrue that he is financially reliant on  his expenses and allowances as a Councillor.  Any investigation by the Inland Revenue or the Council Ombudsman would be embarassing and create serious problems for Councillor X1.

One Paedophile’s Opinion on Another

Sir Jimmy Savile:  Paedophile Gary Glitter “did nothing wrong”

 

The following is extracted from The Huffington Post:

 

Sir Jimmy Savile claimed convicted paedophile Gary Glitter had done “nothing wrong” and was vilified just because he was famous.

Speaking during an interview in 2009, Savile defended his pop star friend, The Sun reported.

He said: “Now Gary, all he did was take his computer into PC World to get it repaired.

“They went in the hard drive, saw all these dodgy pictures and told the police and the police then said, ‘Oh we’ve got a famous person, yeah we’ll have them.’

“But Gary hasn’t sold ’em, hasn’t tried to sell ’em, not tried to show the public or anything like that.”

Glitter was imprisoned in Vietnam for three years for abusing two girls, one aged 10 and one 11.

The 1970s pop star was convicted in 2006 of committing “lewd” acts while the girls were at his beach house in the southern coastal city of Vung Tau.

Following his release he was refused entry to Thailand and Hong Kong so returned to the UK.

In 1999 he served four months in prison in Britain for possessing images of child sex abuse.

The ECVRA Committee: Too Many Freaks, Not Enough Circuses

Gay Wilson [the then Chair of the Earls Court Residents Association Committee] leaned over and spoke quietly into her guest’s ear:  “Have you seen those dirty pictures of young boys that Barry [Phelps] sends out?”

“Yes, they’re disgusting” came back the reply.

“It’s very naughty of  him, and he might end up in trouble with the police one day.  I suppose many people would consider them paedophilic.  xxx has been sending them to me for years, and I suppose xxx sends them to you too?”, she continued.

xxx is a committee member of the ECVRA who had willingly been on Barry Phelps’ email circle for many years for the immoral pictures of young boys, and who, himself, had forwarded them to several people over the course of several years.  He took great delight in receiving and sending out Phelps’ perverted pictures of young boys.

Loudly, she continued, “You know, since I’ve been on my medication [for chemotherapy], its made me more frank with people.  I might just tell Barry that he’s a disgusting pervert!  I might also tell M****** [a lady from Child’s Street] to f*** o***.  After I came out of hospital, she came to visit me one Friday afternoon, and since then, she keeps emailing me to ask if it’s OK to come around.  She keeps emailing, and I have to keep making up excuses.”

After that cold winter’s night on 2 December 2009, Gay Wilson never did confront Barry Phelps over the emails, but would later defend him in public after his resignation from the RBKC council in July 2010.  Barry Phelps did end up being investigated by the police, but unfortunately, following advice from the CPS, for reasons unknown, the matter was not proceeded with. 

In the ensuing scandal that erupted, an email was sent on 5 July 2010 to the then acting Chair of the ECVRA, and copied to all committee members, bar Gay Wilson and xxx.  The email is copied below:

Subject: FILTH
From: ******@gmail.com>
To: **.********@gmail.com

Dear [Acting Chair]

I have heard on the grapevine that Cllr Barry Phelps has resigned his seat for the Earl’s Court ward.  This was because he was using RBKC’s resources to operate a “[Edit]”.  Further details can be found on www.barryphelps.posterous.com

Obviously, this news affects the Earl’s Court Village, but of direct importance to the Residents’ Association is that xxx [ECVRA committee member] was a direct recipient from Barry Phelps of this filth.  For your information, another ECVRA committee member [Gay Wilson] has known about these disgusting Cllr Phelps’ emails for sometime.  The sexualisation of children is disgusting and depraved, and the obtaining of sexual gratification from the images of children, is not conduct that should be tolerated in any up right and right thinking society.  Needless to say, this is information that must be disseminated to all residents, as ECVRA states that “The purpose of the ECVRA shall be to protect the amenities and interests of the Village and of the residents as a whole living within it.”.  To keep quiet or not to criticise such conduct, is to condone this depravity.

On a separate issue, but also relating to filth, was the sending by post of dog excrement by xxx [the same individual who received Barry Phelps’ emails] to one of the residents in the Village, [a woman in Child’s Street].  Again, this information has also been known by another ECVRA committee member[Gay Wilson] for sometime.  Is it ECVRA policy to breach the criminal law by sending dog excrement through the post?  If not, does it condone such behaviour?  If it does not, what does it intend to do about it?  I quote from an email from 25 January 2009 [from xxx]:  “Main event last week was anonymously posting (first class!) to [the lady in Child’s Street], 2 day’s deposits of her wretched dog’s shit which I caught her scooping into the hollyhock beds.  She HAD to be taught a lesson! 🙂  It was beautifully packaged with a letter in a Fortnum & Masons bag + smart jiffy bag!”.

I believe that such a person, xxx, is unfit to be on the Committee, and I hope that that will be the view of other members of the Committee on hearing of these facts.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Best wishes

The Acting Chair of the ECVRA responded on 6 July 2010:

I have got your e mail and will be looking into it.  yours [Acting Chair]

To which the following response was made on 12 July 2010:

Dear [Acting Chair]

Thank you for your reply.  I should be grateful if you could give me an idea of the time-frame for your investigation, and when you will be in a position to be able to provide me with a decision.  It is my view, based also on the groundswell of opinion condemning Phelps and his email list recipients, that it would be a very serious matter if xxx is left on the Committee in good standing after this scandal.  I believe it would seriously undermine the credibility and respectability of the ECVRA in any public role or position it may wish to adopt.  I also believe that it is not purely an internal ECVRA matter, and that there is a public interest.  I hope you will agree that residents of the ECVRA are entitled to be fully informed of any decision, or absence of a decision, made by the Committee, and in reasonable time.

It should also be noted that xxx had sent dog excrement through the postal system, which is a criminal offence, and this fact was also known by a close colleague [Gay Wilson] on the ECVRA Committee.  This is a further reason, why xxx’s position on the Committee is a scandal, untenable and indefensible.

If xxx remains on the Committee, or has the support and backing of the Committee, then I hope you will understand that an Extraordinary General Meeting of the ECVRA should be convened to discuss the matter and xxx’s position on the Committee.  I can assure you from my own experience from speaking with people locally, that there is a lot of shock and disgust with what has transpired with Barry Phelps.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely

On 16 July 2010, a terse reply came back from the Acting Chair of ECVRA stating:

Dear
This is to inform you that xxx has stepped down from the committee of the ECVRA.
[name of Acting Chair], Acting Chairman.

At a future AGM of the ECVRA, a motion was put forward for residents to vote upon to change the boundary of the residents’ association.  The ECVRA committee did not inform the residents, the voters, of the true reasons for the change in the boundary.  The ECVRA committee hoped that it would contain, once and for all, any legitimate criticism of the disgusting conduct of one of its committee members.  The ECVRA committee hoped that it would “keep a lid” on the disgusting behaviour of one of its committee members, xxx, a scandal going to the heart of the ECVRA committee.

This blog, http://barryphelps.posterous.com, would further detail what xxx of the ECVRA committee had done.  It would reveal that xxx had:

1)  Had been a willing recipient who had received and sent out over the course of several years, the filthy Barry Phelps’ emails of young boys;
2)  Sent excrement to a lady in Child’s Street, and also, in a plastic document wallet, to the household of a  peer of the realm in Redfield Lane;
3)  Vandalised a neighbour’s garden by deliberately destroying his tree.

But what would the committee of the ECVRA do about it?

To be continued.
