david ickeIt is after much thought and with considerable trepidation that I write this letter to you. I write now because I have exhausted every other avenue through which I can raise my concerns. Every approach I have made to the statutory authorities, and elected officials, has been met with stonewalling and a failure to properly respond to my correspondence. I have sought to secure a proper investigation by the statutory authorities of the matters I am raising. It is, in effect, being made clear to me that no such investigation will be allowed to proceed.

During 1982 I established a Ratepayers Association in Preston. In my capacity as chairman of that association allegations of corruption within the council were brought to my attention. I did an analysis of the information I had received and concluded that behind the allegations there was serious criminal activity centred on the bribery of public officials and elected politicians, illegal sexual activity probably involving blackmail, and the trafficking of prohibited drugs. I initiated an investigation into the allegations being made and my analysis of the information proved to be totally correct. The investigation I ran started in Preston but spread to other regions and touched on national politics. The full extent of my investigations, and findings, has never been made public. As a result of the investigations centred on Preston there were three key prosecutions leading to convictions, they were:

1. The conviction of a prominent local/national businessman for the rape of an underage girl.

2. The conviction of his business associate for the serial rape of children.

3. The conviction of another of his business associates on nine charges of laundering money on behalf of a dealer in class A drugs.

During the investigation (1984-85) I was offered a copy of the membership list of the Paedophile Information Exchange. The asking price was £10,000, a sum of money which was not available to me at the time. As a “taster” I was given two names of individuals who were alleged to be on that list. One was a senior Labour politician who is still alive but retired, the other was Jimmy Savile. On October 7th I wrote to Mr Bernard Hogan-Howe, Commissioner – Metropolitan Police. I have had cause to write to Mr Hogan-Howe since and on every occasion I have received a proper acknowledgement of the correspondence. I have also written to Lord Patten, he has failed to acknowledge my correspondence or address the serious matters they raise. I have contacted my MP, Ben Wallace, but he is not practically supportive. On October 21st I wrote to the Prime Minister, I have had a standard letter acknowledging receipt of my letter. On December 3rd I received an email from Marples Demster, Library and Arts Policy Officer, from the Ministerial Support Team. This was a one page letter which failed to address ANY of the points put to the Prime Minister. Copies of the correspondence are attached.

Once the Savile revelations were in the public domain I started to analyse the information as I did in the early 1980’s when I received the information which led to the convictions mentioned above. One point that concerned me was the alleged involvement of the security services in the use of paedophilia for the purposes of blackmail. There were very serious allegations which centred on the Knicora Boys school in Northern Ireland. Eventually, I formulated a working hypothesis in an effort to make some rational judgements as to the veracity of these reports. On October 12thI wrote to Mr Hogan-Howe explaining my initial suspicions based on the working hypothesis, a copy of that letter was sent to Lord Justice Mummery. I stated:

“My analysis of the overall picture building up leads me to consider this WORKING HYPOTHESIS: Is it possible that elements within the security services found that the strategy they used at the Kincora Boys school was so successful in Northern Ireland that they decided to use it nationally? Could it be a possibility that these constant reports of child sex abuse involving influential figures have never been properly investigated, or prosecuted, because the security establishment are using these cases to blackmail and control establishment figures in politics, the media, the arts and other sectors of the establishment elite? Has there been an ongoing subversion of our democracy by rogue elements within the security service establishment? Whilst protecting us from our enemies beyond these shores is the security apparatus harbouring the enemy within? Is democracy being subverted with the intention that the people of this country be firmly tied to the yoke of totalitarianism?”

From my perspective the mere possibility that the security services could be using paedophilia and blackmail to control UK politicians is extremely disturbing. It might explain why the democratic process seems, increasingly, not to be working in this country? I placed this working hypothesis before Lord Justice Mummery, head of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, expecting that I might receive some serious response. On November 21st I received a response from the Assistant Tribunal Secretary, he/she sent me four forms. I have responded to that letter today.

It is my belief that the failure by the authorities to properly respond to my correspondence is indicative of the accuracy of my Working Hypothesis. I do believe that it is now essential that the material related to the Paedophile Information Exchange that is in government archives should be published, this to include any material residing in the archives of the security establishment, the Home Office, 10 Downing Street and Scotland Yard.

I do believe that there is a strong possibility that the security services are or have been operating beyond the control of the democratically elected government. If paedophilia and blackmail are being used to subvert and control elected politicians then there is nothing I can say to express the seriousness of that proposition. No one has yet denied it is a possibility. I have been met with prevarication and stonewalling from all the official avenues through which I have raised this issue and voiced my concern. There appears to be a conspiracy of silence which encompasses all the main political parties. I believe they are at one in their determination to suppress information and maintain the status quo, however prejudicial that might be to the people of this country and the future of our democracy. The creeping totalitarianism represented by the increasing use of secret courts, overly intrusive surveillance, the detachment from any public accountability of institutions like the N.H.S, and now the threat of legislation to inhibit freedom of the press has, I fear, sown the seeds of serious discord in this country. If the democratic will of the people is not represented by their elected representatives then there can only be only one outcome in the long term, revolt.
