Default Jimmy Savile/Yorkshire/Ted Hughes/Queen Mother

Jimmy Savile has strong connections with many Yorkshire towns and villages.There is a lot of information on here about this, including Hebden Bridge where Sylvia Plath, wife of Ted Hughes, is buried.

I was investigating various people for an article to be posted elsewhere, and found something that may be relevant to this thread: Ted Hughes was a close friend of the Queen Mother!

"In her eighties, she found a great new friend in Ted Hughes. ‘Queen Elizabeth,’ Shawcross reports, ‘liked that sort of person and she also found his looks – tall, craggy and well built – “very striking”.’ Hughes liked her very much in return. ‘There’s something about her that’s kept very young,’ he wrote in a letter to his brother, ‘like a young woman. But everybody is so fond of her that she escapes the psychological isolation – for most old people inescapable.’

It would make a wonderful play, the friendship between the playful old lady and the mystical nature poet, but for the time being we’ll have to content ourselves with the account of their friendship secreted within the pages of Shawcross’s massive book. Ted Hughes was again among the guests at a picnic below Lochnagar. As they listened to the wind in the trees, they had a conversation typical of their friendship. She asked him if he thought trees could communicate with each other. The exchange kept coming back to him and he wrote a poem about the picnic… It was ‘a wonderful and loving poem’, she said, which ‘transported her at once to my beloved hills’.

The pair invented a couple of imaginary friends, the Rev. Cedric Potter and Miss Dimsdale, who she imagined might be married one day. ‘I can see the announcement in the Daily Telegraph,’ she wrote. The friendship lasted until Hughes’s death, and she was clearly struck by the value of the man and the riches he had brought to her life."

See more at: http://www.lrb.co.uk/blog/2009/09/21....B1MOScn7.dpuf

Ted Hughes is said to have learned about Wicca and mind control from his mother: see Popular Witchcraft page 149

http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=O...rol%22&f=false


This is worth investigating further I think.

Default Ted Hughes: Poet Laureate

" ...I was mildly surprised at first that Hughes had accepted the position...
It soon became clear, though, why Hughes wanted to be Poet Laureate. As he perceived them, the Royals were not the Royals as rendered by Spitting Image and the Sun; not for him your Fergies and your Di’s. In his sub-Shakespearean scheme of things, ancient notions of kingship were still coursing in the nation’s veins, or should be. Disregarding tabloid debunkery, he would make it his business to assimilate a conceptualised Monarch into his personal blueprint for tribal renovation. In short, he would poeticise the Windsors.

It was easy enough to smile at such an enterprise but it was also hard not to be touched by Hughes’s perception of what a true Laureate might be: a kind of patriotic bard magician whose task was to reconnect the English to their primal selves. Why shouldn’t the Royals – even unto the Fergies and the Di’s – be similarly reconnected? By the sheer force of his impassioned deference, a genuine Laureate might restore the land’s rulers to – well, to the land.

And by the land Hughes did not mean Sandringham and Balmoral, although we understand that he liked visiting such places. He had in mind certain remote areas of South Devon and North Yorkshire, where the land is always freezing and rainswept and where the sun, should it appear, is ‘like a torn-out eye’."

Default Ted Hughes astrologer to the royals?

"Sylvia Plath famously described Ted Hughes to her mother as wearing always the same black jacket, its pockets ‘full of poems, fresh trout and horoscopes’. The casting of horoscopes was a shared interest amongst Ted’s friends at Cambridge, and whilst for most of them it was a curiosity, something they might impress the girls with, for Ted it was more serious. He regarded astrology as an art, rather than a science, but he investigated it thoroughly and became expert in it, and he was fascinated by the mythology in which it is steeped.

Whether or not he believed in it absolutely is hard to tell, but he was superstitious and his letters show how often he urged his editors to ensure that his books were published on dates when the stars were propitious. Now, a poem discovered in a collection of rare books recently donated to Hughes Hall College, Cambridge, suggests that he may well have contemplated taking on the mantle of John Dee as astrologer to the Royal Family...

Like at least three of the poems Ted wrote for the Royal Family, ‘The Zodiac in the Shape of a Crown’, takes the form of a Court Masque. And whilst other Laureate poems refer simply to astrological birth signs in the Royal birth-charts, this poem describes the Prince’s (William) horoscope in detail. It also conjures the gods of the Zodiac to appear and gives them voice. Just as Prospero calls forth Ceres, Iris and Juno ‘from their confines to enact [his] present fancies’ (The Tempest IV: 1) and to bless the union of Miranda and Ferdinand by their presence, so Ted commands

Sun and Moon and all their family stand
Around an [sic] new-born babe, in England.
One by one the Sun and Moon and Planets appear, speak their parts and present the gifts they bring ‘For one born to be King’.

The whole poem is a masterpiece of compression, dealing with Prince William’s horoscope in such a way that any competent astrology can reconstruct it. It also makes comparisons with the birth-charts of several other Royals, from Queen Elizabeth I to the present Queen, in a way which makes it clear that Ted had detailed knowledge of these charts. Above all, it is a wonderfully vivid, amusing and lyrical drama, which is played out around the Prince’s cradle as each of his ‘high godparents’ speaks according to his or her particular character, and offers gifts and advice according to their own mythological and astrological strengths and weaknesses...

Next to speak by the Prince’s cradle is Saturn. He, too, was situated in Libra at the Prince’s birth, but for him this is a powerful position. In spite of this, he seems to feel the need to dignify himself, perhaps because in his own Golden Age the gods were know and honoured, whilst now, in our scientific Age of Iron, they are derided or forgotten. Perhaps, too, because of the gross indignities he suffered in antiquity, when he was dethroned by his son, Jupiter, and allegedly castrated by him, too. So, demonstrating that he has kept up to date with technology, he refers to ‘computer research’ and to ‘that Frenchman, Ganquelin’. Michael Ganquelin (1928-91) spent a lifetime doing extensive statistical analyses of the horoscopes of people in particular professions, and his research showed a significant correlation between the planets present at birth and the life-choices these people had made. According to these modern statistics, says Saturn, ‘under my rule’ ‘the boy’ will be a scientist. At the same time, he wryly points out that it doesn’t take statistics to prove the he, Saturn, ‘evidently does exist’.

Saturn is the oldest of the gods and Ted calls him ‘grave Saturn’, suggesting his weighty, serious nature and also his connection with time, mortality and death. Now, like the father-figure he is, Saturn sombrely reviews the gifts the other gods have given to the Prince and, noting that ‘it goes without saying that he’ll fight and learn from his scars’, he provides him with ‘a firm seat in the saddle – a judgment seat’ from which to rule all these disparate energies. Balance, Saturn states firmly, is the ‘true dance’ of the Solar System. And he ends his speech with the very Libran image of the Prince balancing ‘all contrary forces / Easy as the fulcrum on a pair of scales’."

Default Ted Hughes and Princes Charles, William & Harry

“Prince Charles has added a memorial to his friend the late Poet Laureate, Ted Hughes, in his celebrated garden at Highgrove. During the last few years the Prince's garden, created since he purchased Highgrove during the 1980s, has become increasingly admired for its combination of planting, ornament and thoughtful design.

Now the Sunday Times reports that the prince has remembered his friend and adviser, Ted Hughes, who died in 1998 having served as the Poet Laureate from 1984, with the addition of two commemorative stained glass windows to a private temple hidden away amongst trees in the garden.”

http://www.greenfingers.com/articledisplay.asp?id=1470

“Prince Charles has dedicated a shrine at his 'temple' on his Highgrove estate to the former Poet Laureate, the Satanist Ted Hughes. It now transpires that Prince Charles and Ted Hughes had a long-term 'spiritual' association.

The Poet Laureateship is an appointment of the monarch, in fact the Poet Laureate is an Officer of the Royal Household and receives a salary therefrom. BTW Prince Charles has also 'prayed' at his 'temple' with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

"Hughes's tragic marital background had echoes of Charles's"

"Charles and Hughes shared a passion for field sports and would fish and shoot together" - worthy of note because killing animals was a common theme in the Satanist Hughes's poetry.”

Laureate poems were not his forte, but it is understood that Hughes would read poetry to Prince William and Prince Harry on his visits to Highgrove. In a private letter to Tony Blair, his widow wrote that Hughes believed there was a strong mystical link between the monarch and poet laureate.

http://www.mail-archive.com/[email protected]/msg61923.html

ONCE upon a time there were two young princes in need of a storyteller . . . Now it can be revealed that the man who came riding to their rescue was none other than Ted Hughes.

The former poet laureate gave private readings of his work to princes William and Harry at their home, a close friend of Hughes has disclosed for the first time. He captivated the young royals with passages from The Iron Man, his popular children's novel that was later turned into a film.

Another favourite of the princes was The Horses, a poem about 10 greys "megalith-still" in "the hour-before-dawn dark". The recitals took place mainly at Highgrove, the Gloucestershire home of the Prince of Wales, in the early 1990s before William and Harry entered their teens. Hughes also read to Prince Charles and the Queen Mother, to whom he was close.

Details of the private readings have been recounted by Roy Davids, former head of the books department at Sotheby's auction house, who knew Hughes well in the last 20 years of the poet's life.

"Ted's relationship with the royals was much closer than anybody has so far known. He was a great and loyal royalist," he says.

The readings may help to explain why Charles erected a bust of the poet at Highgrove following Hughes's death in 1998 and gave permission for a stone memorial on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall on Dartmoor, where Hughes used to go walking."

Don't post much here but drop by from time to time to try and keep up. Excellent work being done here and obviously many are spending a lot of their life on this thread and researching. Keep up the good work I am sure this thread is being reviewed on a regular basis by MSM & the authorities. I do hope we see more arrests and some serious sentencing.

Someone mentioning Frank Bruno on another thread reminded me of that creepy moment when Phil Collins says 'All the kids whose lives you touched' in the Bruno This Is Your Life (2.48). Look at the way he says it.

Phil Collins era Genesis, Pat Bateman's favourite.
Quote:
Patrick Bateman: Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.

Answering screams of "I love you Rolf" from a male fan while introducing Waltzing Matilda, Harris responded: "I don't know what I'm talking about now. Images of you loving me are all through my head."

BBC News - 5 August 2013
Police probe further abuse claims at Fort Augustus Abbey School

Police have received further reports of alleged abuse by monks at a former Catholic school in the Highlands.

An investigation was launched last week after a BBC programme uncovered evidence of physical and sexual abuse at Fort Augustus Abbey School.

In a statement, Police Scotland said it was liaising with law enforcement agencies in the UK and beyond.

The Church has apologised for what happened at the school, but victims have demanded action rather than words.

Det Ch Insp Pamela Ross of Police Scotland's Highland and Islands Division said: "Further individuals were identified as part of the investigation and following recent media coverage a further number of former pupils have come forward to speak to us.
...
But Christopher Walls, who was physically and sexually abused when he was a pupil at Carlekemp Prep School in East Lothian, told BBC Scotland's Good Morning Scotland programme he was "rather less than impressed" by the apology.

He said: "My brother and I have been complaining about it since 2010, officially, and I've mentioned it to other clergy in between, several times, always getting a 'shushing' response - 'keep quiet about it and offer it up' - presumably not to disturb the unity of the church.

"I think these are sins crying out to heaven for vengeance, quite frankly, and the response must be more vigorous and more directly concerned with me."

He added: "If you rob someone of their childhood and their education, you have got to put that right."
...
The Catholic Church in Scotland has insisted its safeguarding protocols, aimed at protecting against child sex abuse, are robust and transparent.

It has also said it will publish details of its annual audits, which deal with abuse allegations dating back to 2006.

Tina Campbell, a safeguarding adviser for the Diocese of Motherwell, said it was "absolutely disgraceful" that Mr Walls had been "silenced" in the past when he spoke to priests. She insisted the Catholic Church would now deal with all allegations of abuse robustly.
...
Ms Campbell also said the church would look back at records and files relating to allegations of abuse over the past 50 years and would publish details of these in 2014.

Imagine "Owen MD" and "Top of the Pops" getting together, but that's what's happened, for the theme tune is now slipping down the charts after a successful run.

I never watch these programmes now, but wouldn't it be fun if Nigel Stock and Jimmy Saville swopped places? Well, I think so!
...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Doc...969_TV_series)

Nigel Stock's character, Dr. Thomas Owens, was the lead in a later spin-off series, Owen, M.D., which aired between 1971 and 1973. Theme music to Owen, M.D. was "Sleepy Shores" by the Johnny Pearson Orchestra.

Rolf Harris arrested on suspicion of further sex offences while answering police bail

"Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris has been arrested for a second time following fresh allegations of sexual offences.

The 83-year-old Australian, who now resides in Bray, Berkshire, answered police bail today and was told that he faces additional claims.

...

Harris was first arrested in March by detectives from Operation Yewtree, the national investigation launched in the wake of abuse claims made against disgraced television presenter Jimmy Savile.

He had previously been interviewed under caution on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at his home.

He was only publicly named as a Yewtree suspect in April, when the Sun newspaper became the first media outlet to identify him in connection with the investigation.

Scotland Yard did not name Harris, but released a statement which said a man had been 'further arrested on suspicion of sexual offences in connection with further allegations made to Operation Yewtree'.

He has been released on bail to a date later in August."


I'm curious as to why the police refuse to name him and why his interview under caution and two arrests seem to be so low profile.

Default Peter Pan/J. M. Barrie/Royal princesses

"Barrie may have written about the British in relation to Scott, but it was disingenuous: he too was far more concerned with the English. The extent of his infatuation with the English upper classes in particular is astonishing. He intimately connected himself with many of its most vital institutions, including Eton, the Royal Family and Lord’s Cricket Ground. He became a baronet in 1913. He spoke to England cricket captains like “Plum” Warner about upholding the values and traditions of cricket. He loved beautiful English villages and romanticised them as timeless idylls – his own real-life versions of Neverland.

His secretary from 1917, Cynthia Asquith, was the daughter-in-law of Herbert Asquith, British prime minister from 1908 to 1916. He even, in the Thirties, read stories to Princesses Margaret and Elizabeth."

More on JM Barrie:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/d...M.-Barrie.html

"From the beginning, his life was marked by tragedy: born in Kirriemuir in 1860, the child of a Scottish weaver, he grew up in the shadow of an older brother, David, his mother's adored golden boy, who was killed on the eve of his 14th birthday in a skating accident.

Dudgeon makes the startling suggestion that Barrie was involved in his brother's death, and whether or not this accusation is true, the calamity shaped him as a writer, for as an author he brought to life the myth of the perfect boy who never grows up, who can fly out of danger, and yet for whom death would be 'an awfully big adventure'."

Default J. M. Barrie again

More investigation is needed, but here is a horrible coincidence:

"JM Barrie in clear over dead babies found in trunk
The creator of Peter Pan has been cleared of any link to the mysterious deaths of two babies in the 1930s after Los Angeles police discovered their mummified remains in a locked trunk belonging to a JM Barrie.

The bodies were discovered last month when two women were clearing out the abandoned basement of an apartment building.
The corpses were wrapped in sheets and hidden in two doctor's bags among crumpled copies of 1930s newspapers and other belongings from that decade.
The only clue to the babies' identity was the name J M Barrie on the steamer trunk's lid. Investigators from the coroner's office identified two women who had shared the same name – one had been a nurse and the other an East Coast stage performer who was related to James M Barrie, the Scottish author of Peter Pan.
A copy of Peter Pan and membership papers for a local resort called Peter Pan Woodland Club pointed investigators toward the latter Barrie. Her celebrated relation died in 1937 and the author has since faced unsubstantiated claims that he was a paedophile.
Police investigating the discovery explored the possibility of exhuming the author's remains from his grave in Kirriemuir, Angus, to establish a DNA link with the dead infants.
Officials announced on Thursday that, after reading correspondence from relatives left in the trunk, they had identified the trunk's owner as Janet M Barrie, a Scottish-born nurse who had worked in Los Angeles after her family emigrated to Canada.
Miss Barrie, who was born in 1897, died in the mid-1990s and police said they had found no connection between her and the author."
