Ken Clarke just as innocent as Lord McAlpine

This weekend Exaro News  has published a story by me (? David Hencke) where a prominent figure has been falsely accused of indecently assaulting a teenage boy. Exceptionally in this case I had personal knowledge of the events surrounding the incident and knew enough about them to give a statement to the  Met Police Paedophile Unit. As a result of my statement and statements from others  the police cleared the person.

The full story is behind the pay wall at Exaro News (http://www.exaronews.com and http://bit.ly/11vfyOn).

Like the false accusation against Lord McAlpine, this is  another case of mistaken identity.

‘The victims are all mistaken.  Our friends have told us and we believe them.’

TAP – I’m not paying a penny to Exaro News to read what is most likely a pile of useful words designed by a clever lawyer.  If anyone else wants to go behind the paywall, let us know what’s being said other than what you get in the David Hencke headline.

I rather like the drawing of parallels between Ken Clarke being accused of paedophile acts by a person claiming to be the victim (Ben Fellows), and the defence as used by Lord MacAlpine (VIZ. –  ‘It was the wrong Lord MacAlpine’).

Was it the wrong Ken Clarke MP too?  There must be hundreds of these people.

The film evidence of the abuse that took place in Ian Greer’s office, was in the possession of The Cook Report according to victim Ben Fellows.  David Cameron personally authorised the removal of the video when he was head of communications at Carlton TV.  Or maybe it was another David Cameron.  There must be dozens of those too.

Well I think we do need to put our thinking caps on.

1. Hencke states unambiguously a)that ‘a prominent figure has been falsely accused of indecently assaulting a teenage boy’ b) he has first hand knowledge of the case c) This IS a case of mistaken identity d) The Met took his statement seriously

2. Fellows states that a)he did not mistake Clarke’s identity because it was Ian Greer who introduced his alleged assailant to him – listen to this at Liberty Tactics podcast for 20/6/13 and b)He provided a lengthy statement to the Met who would not take it seriously.

    As nice as they are, I would not like to be stuck in a broken lift with them.

    Any other sources for any of this other than Ben Fellows?

    What is the source for David Cameron authorising the removal of the video? On what date did that happen? What was the date of the filming? On what date did Carlton buy Central? Does anyone who blogs about this bother to do any real research or are they worried that might spoil a good story?

    We need solid facts, not just the word of one person.

    Just for Anon5.57.
    In 1987 Catlton tv had 20% of Central.
    In 1994 Carlton had 100% of Central.
    Looking for information on Carlton is like looking in a box of frogs.

    So when WAS the filming for the Cook Report? Because according to the Guardian at the time, Carlton took over Central TV at Christmas 1993 and the takeover was complete by the beginning of January 1994.

    In fact we know roughly when the filming was because an article by David Hencke published by the Guardian on May 12 1994 reports that the Cook Report has been shelved and states:

    “The [Cook Report] investigation by Central Television was inspired by the Guardian’s disclosure of Mr Greer’s operations during last year’s Conservative Party Conference.”

    Again, search back issues of The Guardian and you find that the Conference was held in October 1993. And just 12 weeks later Carlton bought Central TV.

    Not much time for the Cook Report to do research, start filming, for David Cameron who worked there to discover what they had recorded and for Carlton to make such a massive purchase because of the video!

    Sounds rather unlikely doesn’t it?

    These big takeovers were on the cards at the time. There is no conspiracy. In a Guardian article published on Nov 29 1993 called “Too bad, too little, too late” Bruce Gyngell writes:

    “If Carlton Television takes over Central Television or Granada buys London Weekend…”

    All of this is in the archives for anyone who cares to search through back issues of the newspapers and libraries provide access.

    Before rushing to publication and looking like complete fools, many bloggers would be well advised to do a little bit of research.

    “…the £758 million takeover bid announced yesterday.”

    So if we follow the money, where did the 758 million pounds come from.
    Who had that amount of money to speculate.
    Or did they borrow it, if so, who from.

    Carlton already had access to large sums of money for this kind of purpose.

    During the 1991 franchise round for ITV licences that would begin on 1 January 1993, Carlton made bids for the London and South/South East regions. I believe they were successful in getting the London (Thames) region but not the other?

    This was the crackpot franchise auction which destroyed ITV by favouring those who made the highest bids.
