Operation Fairbank – Cliff Richard visited Elm Lodge

List of guests at Elm Lodge, including Cliff Richard.  Sent in by ….. …… with no background explanation.  Now to find out what it signifies.  Why shouldn’t he pop into Elm Lodge?  Am I missing something?  The rest of the list looks somewhat notorious, judging by the notes.  Should this list be passed to Philip Schofield?  Anyone know?

Here’s someone who seems to –  something about Operation Fairbank.  I’m still none the wiser.


and this blog seems to know a bit more about it all – something about Top Tories abusing boys at a London Guesthouse 30 years ago, and the Police deciding not to investigate.  Same old shit.  Different day.

Exaro News ( http://www.exaronews.com) today reveals that for the last two months the police have secretly been scoping a new investigation into senior politicians and their involvement in a paedophile ring, involving  under age boys, that took place in the 1980s.
This is separate to the current Operation Yewtree  investigation into Jimmy Savile and other celebrities, which mainly involves under age girls.

They are looking again at a raid that took place in 1982 on a  guest house in Barnes, south London, which appeared to be being used as a gay brothel and was frequented by prominent figures including, I am told, ministers, Tory MPs, a Liberal MP and two Labour Mps. Under age boys in  the care  of Richmond council and other local authorities were  visiting or staying at the guest house.

The inquiry-under the title Operation Fairbank – will also examine whether there was a cover up which meant that the Met Police at the time and when complaints about it resurfaced twenty years later  never followed up the investigation. Nobody was ever charged with any offence, even though the place had been raided and people bundled into police cars.

The place – 27, Rocks Lane  in Barnes – is now a very respectable and none of the people living there now having to do with events when it was the Elm House guest house between 1979 and 1982.

Exaro News was put on to this inquiry by a former Richmond Council official and trade unionist and we took him to give evidence to the police who were already investigating similar allegations passed to Tom Watson, the Labour MP. He raised the issue of the 1980s paedo ring in the Commons.

Exaro News will be covering this scandal over the next few days, starting today, and are still investigating, these, and other more serious allegations in other parts of the country. I shall be blogging in more   detail about the difficulties facing the police in handling such a difficult and fraught investigation.

Suffice to say anybody who believes that Tom Watson has raised this issue for pure political gain and this is  a fabricated story better  think again very carefully. I know it has very wide ramifications and could  lead to a scandal even bigger than the hacking inquiry.

    Context on this blog – http://legalaidcuts.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/in-line-of-our-duties-new-naypic-youth.html

    Mary Moss of NAYPIC, refusing to speak to police, wants to speak to senior cabinet member to get funding for her charity.

    The list and the article state that the location is ‘Elm Lodge’ .. if I “google” ‘Elm Lodge child abuse’ only this blog seems to show in the results.

    All other blogs refer to the location as ‘Elm Guest House’, I’m assuming that it is assumed that they are one in the same but ‘Elm Lodge’ appears to be an Old Folks Residential Nursing Home.

    Apologies for being a pedant.

    Paedo prey website still open !!!!!!!!!!!


    In October 2012, almost a year after his death, an ITV documentary examining claims of sexual abuse against Savile[11] led to broad media coverage and a substantial and rapidly growing body of witness statements and sexual abuse claims, including accusations against public bodies for covering up or failure of duty. Scotland Yard launched a criminal investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by Savile over six decades,[5] describing him as a “predatory sex offender”, and later stated that they were pursuing over 400 lines of inquiry based on the testimony of 300 potential victims via fourteen police forces across the UK.[12][13] By late October 2012, the scandal had resulted in inquiries or reviews at the BBC, within the National Health Service, the Crown Prosecution Service, and the Department of Health.[12][14][15]

    So what happened, then? We’re 5 months down the line.

    I thought the licensee of the guest house was convicted for running a disorderly house? If no one was convicted for anything else, that might be because the boys were all aged 16 or over? A cover-up would require all the police involved in the case – and many more who knew about it – being corrupt and staying silent to this day. Not a single one of them broke ranks and blew the whistle? Ditto the staff and other children at the children’s home? Why have none of the boys spoken out? Who would be capable of bribing or threatening all of those people to stay quiet for all of this time?

    re Cliff Richard and the Elm House is there a single piece of evidence that would suggest he ever visited the place. That would not be enough for a conviction in a Court of Law but it would convince me and most people.
    If you have nothing at all well its on a par with me claiming the Roswell space aliens assassinated Diana or this a satanist plot to discredit Cliff Richard,
    you can e-mail me sol42@mail.com i write http://www.davidsfirst.blogspot.co.uk

  8. i could of written THAT.it proves not5hing

    The above document proves absolutely nothing!! It is a fake. No one would write his own name on such a list if he was there for evil reasons – or at all!!! Yes, Cliff was dating Sue Barker in 1982 and 1983. Cliff loves children and would never do ANYTHING to hurt them. Anyone can come up with a false alegation. He is a nice man – kind a gentle.
