Iain Mills, MP, was apparently found with extreme levels of alcohol in his blood and was surrounded by gin bottles.

The media blamed his death on the stress of being a parliamentarian and it was assumed he’d had an alcohol problem for many years.

This was at odds however with members of his local constituency group who insisted he was a teetotaler and only ever drank orange juice during the 20 years they knew him.

His untimely death was soon forgotten and to this day is rarely mentioned, but that might be about to change.

Could it be that Iain Mills MP was aware of the high -level paedophile ring operating in Dolphin Square and this knowledge led to his death?
http://thecolemanexperience.wordpres...re-connection/
In 1993, an Early Day Motion was proposed by Ann Winterton MP entitled:

“Availability Of Obscene, Violent And Pornographic Material”

” That this House thanks Superintendent Michael Hames and his colleagues of the Obscene Publications Squad for acceding to the request of Right honourable and honourable Members to be available on 24th and 25th February in the Jubilee Room to provide honourable Members with the opportunity to discuss the difficulties which are experienced in dealing with the shockingly obscene, violent, and pornographic material which is increasingly available in the United Kingdom; expresses its revulsion that this material features the depiction of cruelty and violence towards women, children, and men, that it involves acts of bestiality as well as other acts of extreme depravity; expresses its profound concern that the Obscene Publications Act and associated legislation fails to provide the necessary legal framework for the prosecution of those who produce and disseminate this material; welcomes the acceptance by the Prime Minister that there are great and obvious problems in this area; and invites the Secretary of State for the Home Department to respond to the concern of honourable Members of this House, from all political parties, by undertaking a wide-ranging and thorough departmental review both of the provisions and of the enforcement of the law, and to make it his policy to bring forward proposals for legislation at an early date”

We then note that the EDM was signed by both Iain Mills MP and also Geoffrey Dickens MP.

We now know that Geoffrey Dickens received death threats when he passed a dossier to Leon Brittan outlining allegations of the child-abuse ring. We also know that Tom Watson has received threats, so these abusers are serious in their attempt to escape justice.

Isn’t it time the Met looked again at the death of Iain Mills MP?

Default 1992 Air Hanson helicopter crash near Blackbushe

"A FATHER and son died when a helicopter crashed in dense woodland near Crowthorne, Berkshire, yesterday. Another two children and a man were in hospital last night with serious injuries.

Arrests!!! Yes, we have arrests!!! Someone page Marlowe quick!!

...arrests, at 5 a.m., of a seven month pregnant woman and an editor of a relatively obscure newspaper (who is a widower and sole father of two young kids) over alleged offences committed over a decade ago.

Whoop-ee-do-da-ay!

How strange, despite Iain Mills being an MP from 1979 to his death in 1997, and clearly supporting Geoffrey Dickens in trying to legislate against abuse, there is not one single speech on Hansard from him. That is 18 years as a member of parliament and not a word recorded of his opinions. Surely that is an anomaly? Unless of course, it has been removed?

Iain Mills. A history of speaking in the house.

It's possible that he was a severe alcoholic of a spectacularly lazy variety - but if so, that conflicts with what his constituents said about him, and even the laziest MP's usually make a maiden speech, at least if they're in office for almost two decades, I'd guess.

When i tried to look at the obituary of Iain Mills on the Independent website, I got this:

Blackbushe is somewhere I know well as they hold a massive Sunday market there. AIr Hanson had a hangar there, from memory, but re-branded to Premi-air a few years ago.

Part of the film "Rush", by Ron Howard was filmed there, a film about the 1976 F1 season.

Incidentally, Blackbushe airport is also the home to British Car Auctions, who recently sold at least one of Jimmy Savile's cars:

It was also home to a large pop festival in 1978, organised by Harvey Goldsmith.

Granted it was the late 80`s early 90`s but it would require at least one of the group of names to have a link to the humberside region. Baron White of HULL was HANSONS lifelong business partner taking on the title AFTER the elmhouse ring was stopped.

So 48 year old former editor Tina Weaver is pregnant, the cynic in me wonders if that is a deliberate ploy to escape a custodial sentence

And haven't Rebekah and Charlie Brooks had a daughter in early 2012 via a surrogate mother too. Yes feeling full of cynic tonight

Default Ritalin - The Herald, Scotland

inShare.
A fighter for young minds Prof Steve Baldwin died before publishing his latest research into Ritalin. Jean West tells of his fears for children taking the drug


Jean West

Tuesday 3 April 2001

THE last conversation I had with Professor Steve Baldwin was rather more animated than usual. He had given me some information for a story about what he regarded as the negligent administration of the drug Ritalin to hyperactive children in British schools.



case, a prefect.

The police had told him that this might constitute unlawful possession and supply of pharmaceutical drugs. In short, drug-trafficking in the classroom. However, when I asked the professor for some

contact names to back up his claims, he began to clam up
. It was ironic: I was the journalist but he was the one refusing to reveal his sources.

''Just approach some of the schools

and tell them a source has reliably informed you that this is the case,'' he offered, apologetically.

''They'll just tell me to mind my own business,'' I replied. ''And no newspaper will publish this without substantive

evidence
.'' He went quiet for a moment before mysteriously adding: ''Look, this is a much bigger story. We need to meet. I can't tell you everything yet.''

I agreed that I would try to catch up with him at a debate organised by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London at the end of February. Our appointment was never kept. Professor Baldwin was killed in the Selby rail disaster as he travelled to London.
Only now has the bigger picture finally emerged. Shortly before he made that ill-fated journey, the child psychologist was celebrating news that the findings of a detailed study he had conducted, involving the families of 100 children attending his behavioural disorders clinic, had been accepted for publication. His colleagues in the school of social science at Teesside University finally released the study the day before his funeral. It answered all of my questions.

The whole experiment, which Steve had intended to extend to 1000 children nationwide, had been a direct swipe at a controversial government report issued last year and recommending that up to 70,000 British children with severe attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) could benefit from Ritalin.

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (Nice), the pharmacutical watchdog, suggested that far more than the 21,000 already taking Ritalin - a compound similar to amphetamine or speed - should be additionally prescribed the drug at an extra cost to the NHS of #7m.

Novartis, the company which manufactures Ritalin, said: ''Ritalin is a mild central nervous system stimulant. Its safety and efficacy is one of the most widely researched areas in child behavioural disorders. Many studies, over the past 40 years, have shown that the use of Ritalin in treating ADHD has a very positive effect.''

The Nice directions were all the more remarkable in the light of evidence that prescriptions of Ritalin had already soared from 3500 in 1993 to 157,000 by last year. But even this figure was dwarfed by the situation in the United States, where four million children take the drug.

An astonished Professor Baldwin believed the findings of the Nice report, partially rooted in an American treatment study, were seriously flawed. It was no secret that the US research had been funded by six drug companies: [B]Eli Lilly, Glaxo, Richwood, Bristol-Myers, Solvay, and Wyeth-Ayers[/B]t.

In an earlier paper, Baldwin had written: ''Contemporary studies of Ritalin use with children and teenagers have been funded by pharmaceutical companies with obvious vested interests in reporting positive outcomes from drug treatment. Often small-scale studies are repeated endlessly by industry-funded researchers until enough 'positive results' are obtained. None of these obvious conflicts of interest is even mentioned in the Nice report.''

The outspoken psychologist had long been issuing warnings about the side-effects of Ritalin, including cardiovascular problems, psychosis, hallucinations, violent and suicidal behaviour, depression, mood swings, stunted growth, over-activity, and irritability. The health service might live to regret the uncharted long-term consequences on the developing central nervous systems of minors, he cautioned. He wanted it banned in schools.

Baldwin embarked upon a lengthy period of research to consolidate his beliefs and to evaluate the effects of the drugs on what he had always believed were innocent young guinea-pigs.

One hundred parents of children attending his clinic at Teesside University were questioned in depth about their experience with Ritalin. Information was also gathered about the regulation of the drug in schools.

His findings make for uncomfortable reading. Of one group within the study who had been withdrawn from the drug, many displayed violent behaviour and suicidal intent. One of Baldwin's patients, James Grayson, 11, from Manchester, left suicide notes for his parents, drank from puddles, and ''barked like a dog'' when he was taking Ritalin.

There were also terrifying reports of destructive behaviour and acts of self-mutilation. Psychological disturbance was also present. Many children had mood disturbance, depression, tremors, or twitches. Others suffered sleep loss, and visual disturbance.

Edinburgh mother Donna Miller, whose child, Lee, was on Ritalin for hyperactive behaviour, actually became frightened of her son. She said: ''Lee became quickly disruptive when he was taking Ritalin. He pushed his brother, Derek, through a safety-glass door and then stabbed him in the foot with a pair of scissors.''

Another parent, Bev Croan, also from Edinburgh, said her son, Nicholas, became extremely unpredictable, ''jumping out of windows, running in front of traffic, stealing, and even setting fire to himself while playing with a lighter and an aerosol''.

Of the children in the study who were still taking Ritalin at school, only a small percentage received it from school nurses or matrons. For the rest, the drug was administered by head teachers, secretaries, special education staff, school helpers,

and dinner ladies. One child even self-administered the medication without adult supervision. Bev Croan was shocked to learn that the drug was handed out to her son by a school secretary. ''I had to sign a piece of paper to say they had my permission to give it out. But they had not told me the secretary would be doing this. They had no qualified medical staff. I was

totally ignorant about this.''

Mandy Simpson, 40, of Banff, said she would hand the drug in a plastic film case with her son Damien's name on it to the bus monitor in the morning. It would be given to the school auxiliary at Banff Primary School who would dish it out later in the day.

She added: ''I was under the impression that Damien would be given his Ritalin by a professional - a doctor or a nurse. One particular day he was not given his Ritalin at all. I knew the minute he came through the door.''

Meanwhile, Janice Hill, who runs the Overload Network International, said parents had contacted her with similar concerns. She said: ''The school cannot know for sure what medications a child has been given before they arrive in the morning.

''Ritalin reacts with several 40 over-the-counter medications, including cold remedies. Moreover, children can experience severe rebound if medication is not given at correct times and in the proper dose.''

Professor Baldwin's controversial theories, however, were not without their detractors. Dr Sam Tucker, a Harley Street paediatrician, said that, as far as the

pharmacology of the drug was con-cerned, Baldwin was ''totally misinformed and knew nothing of what he was talking about''. But he added: ''If there is mishandling of how the medication is given out, then that is wrong. However, it is such a safe drug and short-acting medication, I don't really think it matters.''

Dr Clive Jones, a psychologist from York, said: ''This medication is reasonably short-acting. It needs to be administered during the day in order to control behaviour. It is an unsatisfactory situation that schools have to administer it, but it is difficult to see a way out of it.''

But for Baldwin, there were more deep-seated concerns grounded in a background knowledge of US trends. Given the disturbing side-effects, he believed current administration needed reviewing. He maintained that existing legislation did not make provision for the safe storage of controlled drugs in schools. ''The obvious dangers for 'leakage' of controlled drugs and 'playground' trading seem to have been ignored by school head-teachers,'' he wrote.

All of this may sound like scare-

mongering but in the United States the problem of Ritalin abuse by children is widespread. A report last year in the Christian Science Monitor read: ''Across North America, Ritalin is increasingly the drug of choice for thousands of young people, from 10-year-old grade-schoolers dabbling with a first illicit high to graduate students in need of an all-night push to finish a term paper.''

Ritalin is on the US Drug Enforcement Agency's top 10 list of most stolen prescription drugs. Children snort, dissolve, and inject it. Ten-mg tablets have a street value of $2. It is a cheap alternative to cocaine.

Baldwin believed there was plenty of potential for UK children to save up the drugs for similar abuse. He asserted that allowing minors to possess controlled drugs for delivery to school (or for self-administration) could constitute unlawful possession under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Certainly, the dangers of distributing Ritalin in schools were clearly underlined last year when eight-year-old Daniel Young of St Vincent's School in Dundee - who had not been diagnosed ADHD - was accidentally given the drug by a temporary teacher. His parents threatened to sue the education department.

The Scottish Executive has no specific guidelines for the distribution of the drug in schools, though a spokeswoman said it was working on them. A consultation exercise is expected before Christmas.

But Professor Baldwin believed that Britain, like America, was evolving a culture where the prescribing of drugs for child behaviour was becoming the norm. The rough-and-tumble play of normal child development, he said, was being over-ridden by over-diagnosis of what he believed was a hyped disease.

And he alleged that some parents who refused to agree to medicate their child may have been pressurised by some schools to conform. In one letter to the Overload Network International, a mother wrote of her son, Ben, who is eight: ''It's a nightmare getting him to take his two tablets daily, but his school has made it quite clear that if he does not take his Ritalin he cannot go to school.''

Baldwin warned starkly: ''We need to stop the practice of turning our schools into warehouses for amphetamines. Schools have become modern-day prisons with children drugged for purposes of social control. I would like to see drug-free schools where amphetamines are not allowed on the premises and children being offered psycho-social alternatives.''

But Dr Tucker forcefully dismissed his claims. He said: ''His opinions are not only stupid, but dangerous. The benefits of Ritalin are outstanding. I can give you 30 children whose lives have been transformed by it.''

However, Dr Edward Hamlyn, a founding member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and an allergist based in Devon, came to Baldwin's defence. ''Ritalin should be banned,'' he said. ''It is a very dangerous drug and should not be available for any reason whatsoever. The way Ritalin is being used is the very worst kind of abuse. It really is just a method of getting children under control.''

He added that, given the problems experienced in the US, he would like the police properly to investigate the situation.

There are some who will be quietly pleased that Professor Baldwin was silenced forever in the Selby rail crash. There are others who will mourn the death of a human being who offered a rare route to drug-free intervention in the healing of their children.

Case history one: Sarah

Sarah, 11, is an only child living at home with her biological mother

and stepfather. She had been prescribed MPH in December 1999, but her mother decided to stop the medication after she ''found out

that [methylphenidate] was amphetamine - they never told

me that''. Sarah had experienced

many side-effects from MPH, including (but not limited to) sleep loss, vomiting, headaches, stomach aches, violent/aggressive behaviour,

suicidal talk (including threats to kill herself with a knife). She had

been taking 3x10mg MPH per day, including a dose at noon. At

school, the school secretary or

senior students would give her

the tablet.

Case history two: Derek

Derek, 10, lives with his biological mother, younger brother, and stepfather. He was diagnosed ADHD and prescribed MPH, 3x10mg per day. At school, dinner ladies would give him the tablet at noon. He had experienced severe adverse drug reactions to MPH, including (but not limited to) sleep loss, weight loss, aggressive behaviour, headaches, tics (blinking), spinning, mood shifts, depression, head-butting, and suicide threats. The adverse reactions to MPH were so severe his mother insisted his medication be changed. Despite its known teratogenic properties, the psychiatrist had switched the prescription to the anticonvulsant carbamazine (although there was no prior history of seizures).

RIP Steve - you were a terrific person.

But last year the seemingly perennial bachelor, now 50, who names Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, and Sophie Anderton among his previous girlfriends, married Masha Markova, a Russian former model 25 years his junior, and now has a five-month-old son called Max.

Guess it helps to have had a rich dad with useful business connections.....


After changing hands three times in fairly quick succession over the past decade, the UK’s PremiAir Aircraft Engineering appears to be settling down and renewing its commitment to business aviation. In fact, it was recently appointed by Raytheon Aircraft as an authorized service center for the Premier I.

In November the company was reformed under its new name, after being acquired by Sir Robert McAlpine–the long-established British construction, property and wind energy group. Before this, the firm, which is based at Blackbushe Airport 35 miles southwest of London, had been owned in succession by the Hanson group, Lynton and BBA (encompassing Signature Aircraft Engineering’s Blackbushe and Denham operations). Combined hangar space at Blackbushe and Denham totals 43,000 sq ft, and these facilities are now being upgraded.
