Labour figures' bizarre link to paedophile groups
Immediate 22.00hrs Wednesday 20th June 2007
Their involvement with an organisation to which two groups campaigning for the legalisation of paedophilia were affiliated has come back to challenge three leading Labour Party figures.
Before she became an MP, Harriet Harman was the legal officer in the late 1970s for the National Council for Civil Liberties. When Miss Harman joined NCCL in 1978, PIE, the Paedophile Information Exchange, had already been affiliated for three years. Another group, Paedophile Action for Liberation, a Gay Liberation Front offshoot, had also been affiliated to NCCL until it was absorbed by PIE. PIE, which campaigned for adults to have sex legally with children, only broke off its relationship with NCCL when it went undercover in 1982, the same year that Harriet Harman left her NCCL post to become Member of Parliament for Peckham.
NCCL people were earlier involved in keeping the name of an NCCL council-member, Jonathan Walters, out of the People newspaper when it ran an exposé of Paedophile Action for Liberation, of which he was secretary, in 1975. The People still ran the story, but Walters was not named.
Even more extraordinary is the fact that a current Cabinet Minister was running the National Council of Civil Liberties at the time all this was going on.
The Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP, Secretary of State for Health, became General Secretary of NCCL in 1974. The very next year, 1975, NCCL invited the Paedophile Information Exchange and Paedophile Action for Liberation to affiliate. In the year after, 1976, the now-notorious paedophile Tom O'Carroll was invited to address the NCCL conference, which promptly voted to 'deplore' the use of chemical castration treatments for paedophiles.
Also in 1975, Patricia Hewitt joined the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, as a 'straight', in the same year that Keith Hose of the Paedophile Information Exchange addressed its second annual conference. Hose moved a motion of censure on the conference organising committee for 'relegating paedophilia to ancillary status in conference.' The motion was seconded by Trevor Locke, who just happened to be a member of the Executive Council of the NCCL. 'An awareness and acceptance of the sexuality of children is an essential part of the liberation of the young homosexual,' the motion went on. It was duly passed.
Jack Dromey, whom Harriet Harman married in 1982, and who is now Treasurer of the Labour Party, was also involved with the NCCL. He served on its Executive Committee from 1970 to 1979, so he was there when the decision to invite the two paedophile groups to affiliate was made. NCCL also set up a gay rights sub-committee at the same time, members of which included prominent paedophiles Peter Bremner (alias Roger Nash), Michael Burbidge, Keith Hose and Tom O'Carroll. And of course Walters and Locke were on the Executive.
Stephen Green, National Director of Christian Voice, commented: 'It is timely that the ghosts of the 1970's past should come back to haunt these three leading Labour Party politicians. Harriet Harman, Jack Dromey and Patricia Hewitt were in their mid- or late-twenties at the time, but that cannot really excuse the way NCCL came to regard paedophiles as an oppressed minority whose civil liberties needed to be fought for.
'All three of them really need to explain why they were so friendly toward so many out campaigning homosexual paedophiles in their youth. Why did they allow the NCCL gay rights sub-committee to be stuffed with them? Why were they happy to work with paedophilia supporters on the NCCL Executive? It cannot have been sympathy with child-molestation, so was it a complete lack of judgment or was it moral cowardice?
'NCCL has now been rebranded as 'Liberty' and is doing great work standing up to the Government to defend the civil liberties of us all. But thirty years ago some rather peculiar things went on, and I think we should be told why.'
So, "why does Harriet Harman hate marriage"?
Perhaps because she is a member of a New World Order elite that despises the British working-classes and wants them gone? Lord Longford was Harman's uncle and the writers Thomas Pakenham, Rachel Billington and Lady Antonia Fraser are her cousins. Fraser is married to the Jewish playwright, Harold Pinter.
Harman is great-granddaughter of Arthur Chamberlain and Louisa Kenrick. Arthur was the brother of Joseph who served under Gladstone and Salisbury.
Louisa's cousin, Harriet, married Joseph and they were the parents of Austen, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Foreign Secretary. Louisa's sister Florence married him after Harriet's death. They were the parents of Neville, Prime Minister from 1937 to 1940.
Another Harman great-grandfather was a wealthy merchant.
Despite all of this privilege the family is not beyond a spot of criminal behaviour. Harman’s sister, Sarah, was caught passing confidential papers to her when she was Solicitor General. Sarah Harman was, subsequently, found guilty of "conduct unbefitting a solicitor" and forced to resign.
Harriet Harman, MP for Camberwell and Peckham, voted for war with Iraq.
She did not vote for an amendment which sought to prevent the invasion of Afghanistan. She also voted for the military action which led to led to the widespread bombing of Iraq in 1998.
Twenty two EDMs were introduced into Parliament, since New Labour came to power, which were critical of the government's use and sale of cluster bombs, land mines and artillery shells containing depleted uranium.
Harman signed none of them.
At least sixteen EDMs were introduced into Parliament, since New Labour came to power, which sympathised with Armed Forces personnel who have been seriously damaged by: deliberate exposure to radiation at nuclear test sites; chemical and nerve gas experimentation at Porton Down on unsuspecting volunteers; Gulf War Syndrome and other wholly preventable illnesses.
Harman signed none of them.
She voted to allow the adoption of children by homosexual couples and to lower age of consent for gay sex to 16.
She voted against the motion which opposed government plans to cut student funding and voted for student top-up fees.
She voted for the establishment of Foundation hospitals (privatisation by the back door) in all four of the most important Commons divisions.
Of the seventeen EDMs (and their amendments) which were explicitly or implicitly critical of the Mugabe regime in Zimbabwe, Harman signed none of them.
During the lifetime of the New Labour government, Harman has had plenty of opportunity to sign some of the many EDMs introduced into Parliament which were suspicious and/or critical of GM "Frankenstein food" technology.
She didn't sign any.
She also signed an EDM, introduced by Oona King (who is both black and Jewish) welcoming:
... all-party support that the Race Relations Bill has received throughout its passage in both Houses of Parliament; and calls on all public authorities - the police, central and local government, the NHS and others, all of whose functions will be covered by the amended Race Relations Act 1976, to seize the opportunity provided by this legislation to tackle all forms of racial discrimination.
When Harman signed this pernicious EDM, she will have known that it was designed to bear down upon the native, white population of Britain only.
Harman also voted for a bill which, according to Stephen Byers, who was a member of the Select Committee which tabled the new clause:
... would create a new specific offence of racially motivated violence.
She also voted for criminal behaviour to be punished with more severity if that behaviour be "racially" or "religiously" aggravated.
Harman mentioned the murder of Damilola Taylor many times in the House of Commons.
She also mentioned the death in prison custody of the black man, Alton Manning and signed an EDM commemorating Stephen Lawrence.
However, she never bothered to mention the murder of her constituent, Leslie Watkinson. Leslie, a 66-year-old former Salvation Army Major, was knocked to the ground just yards from his home by three black muggers.
Nor did Harman mention the murder of Hilda Ashdown, who was killed by two black men. Nor did she mention the murder of Angela Demetriou, who was killed by her black neighbour.
In fact, Harman has never brought a black/Asian upon white murder to the attention of the British people in the House of Commons. Nor has she ever signed an EDM commemorating any of the many British dead who have been murdered by first and second-generation immigrants.
Wikipedia has this to say about Harman:
After the 1992 general election she was elected to the Shadow Cabinet and became shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury, then Shadow Secretary of State for Health...
Whilst holding this post she was involved in a media controversy when she sent her eldest son to a grant maintained school, then her younger son to a grammar school. Labour policy opposed these forms of education, but she retained high office with the support of the Labour leader, Tony Blair. (Tony Blair has also sent his children to top Grammar schools)
After Labour's victory in the 1997 general election, she became Secretary of State for Social Security...
During this period Harman became regarded as an over-promoted New Labour apparatchik.
Harman was sacked in 1998.
Of Harman's decision to send her son to the grant-maintained London Oratory, (where Tony Blair sent his sons) the black MP, Diane Abbot, said this:
She made the Labour Party look as though we say one thing and do another.
Abbot would later, with maximum self-service and hypocrisy, refrain from sending her own son to the local Comprehensive, preferring instead to enrol him at an elite Grammar, some way away from all the nasty gun-toters.
She made a return to the front bench in 2001 with her appointment to the office of Solicitor General, thus becoming the first female Solicitor General ever.
It was reported in January 2004 that her son, in his first year at the University of Warwick, had been caught smoking marijuana, but not been expelled from his halls of residence in accordance with the university's policy.
The media contrasted his treatment with that of another fellow first-year, who had died on the way home after suffering the usual punishment, getting lost, and wandering on to some train tracks.
Harman is married to Jack Dromey, Trade Union Leader and former Labour Party Treasurer.
He is on record as having said:
Our economy needs migrant labour, they are essential. It would be impracticable but also immoral to deport half a million people. Who would clean? Who would cook? The time has come for a debate around amnesty for those workers.
We will act as the champion of migrant workers, they enrich our life. Migrant workers should be organised and not marginalised. We will confront the cancer of racism in the workplace. We will ensure action in parliament. We will combat racism in the community. The brain-dead boot boys of the BNP will never have a place in the T&G.
Dromey said something similar in a speech at the TUC conference on 15 September 2004:
I love living in Herne Hill/Brixton, with its thriving Afro-Caribbean culture. Next door is Peckham with the largest African community in Britain. I know of no more decent and hard-working peoples. Give me the Peckham African community any day to the brain-dead BNP boot boys of Burnley…
Our task is not to fear migrant workers, BUT INSTEAD TO WELCOME THEM TO OUR SHORES.
Dromey's father was "welcomed to our shores" in 1938. He, too, became a trades union leader.
In 2003, Harman was fined £400 and banned from driving for seven days after being convicted of driving at 99 mph.
In 2007, she was issued with a £60 fixed penalty notice and given three penalty points on her license for driving at 50 mph on a stretch of road with a 40 mph limit.
Leo McKinstry mentioned Harman's involvement in the donorgate scandal. The man at the heart of this was the Jewish property developer and major New Labour donor, David Abrahams.
When she was interviewed on the BBC Radio 4 PM programme on 27 November 2007, she was evasive when asked to confirm or deny that her campaign team had contacted Abrahams' secretary soliciting money.
