Melanie Shaw’s treatment by Nottinghamshire Police/New Hall Prison like something out of Solzhenitsyn.

I have just sent this email off to Karen Kemp the community & Conservative candidate for Bulwell Forest.

Dear Karen,

I am writing this email to you in disgust of the way this poor abused lady Melanie Shaw is being treated. Please follow the links to learn of her brutal treatment by the establishment.
What is your view on this matter?
I hope to hear from you soon.
Kind regards,
Her reply will be posted to you as soon as received.
The Nottinghamshire child abuse whistleblower’s treatment in jail has once again degenerated into something out of Solzhenitsyn, or worse.

This morning, I received one of the most harrowing letters I have read in my life. It came from Melanie Shaw’s prison cell.

UK Column News stands by its description of Melanie Shaw as a political prisoner convicted of undisclosed crimes in a secret hearing.

The clarity of both her handwriting and her analysis throughout this letter reconfirms to me that she is of clear mind and is being subjected to a cynicalpsikhushka regime to break her spirit and discredit or delete her testimony of Establishment child abuse in the Thatcher era.

Many of the prison “staff” who have neglected, mocked and abused her (including by threatening effective rape in her cell) at various East Midlands jails appear to be private corporate employees and/or to lack any suitable warder training, and they certainly seem to have no shred of humanity orintention to abide by the common law.

We reproduce her entire letter below, above which Melanie wrote “SHARE PUBLICALLY“. Please share this transcript far and wide and hold your public servants and representatives to account on her outrageous case; particularly, at her own express request, her own supposed Member of Parliament, Chris Leslie, for whom she previously volunteered and who promised to help her.

Hello Brian,

I hope you’re well.

I’m in a mess here. I’ve been kept in a locked cell for four weeks, 24/7. I’m not allowed toilet paper or able to wash my hair. My Tourette’s [nervous symptoms] are back this morning.

Brian, please can you help me? I don’t even know if you will get this letter. Please. I’ve got nothing to do, no smokes or anything.

It hurts me that I’m being treated in such a disgusting way. I don’t know who’s authorised it or why. I’m not strong, as I’ve let myself down alone here in this cell. The odd staff utter a few words at you. At least in Foston [Prison] they would speak to me and treat me decently. I’ve no mental health support here, nothing. I’m just locked permanently in a cell like a Romanian circus bear. They want me to suffer and have cabin fever.

Please contact Chris Leslie on 0115 711 7666* as he has a signed form of authority to info share [on my case].

I hereby authorise Brian Gerrish to act on my behalf in respect of tackling the failings I’ve mentioned in this letter. Melanie Shaw, date of birth 7/10/70. Signed, 12 June 2017, Melanie Shaw [signature].

Brian, please thank the listeners for their letters. I have stamps and paper but no envelopes. If a stamp is STUCK to a self-addressed envelope, I will be given it and can write back. I don’t need or want money, all I want is to talk to people by letter.

Please help me to stop this abuse. I have no knickers either. It’s unbelievable and God only knows what they are doing in private to other inmates. I’m scared to sleep and often put my chair behind my door. Do you understand me?

I don’t deserve this at all.

This is NOT rehabilitation.

I’ve not been diagnosed as mentally ill but normal; the [HM Prison Service] area psychologist for Yorkshire has refused to finish her report by not coming back to prison. People who are decent are traumatised by my maltreatment and neglect.

    What a headline: …’like something out of Solzhenitsyn’. Poor gal, what a disgusting piece of persecution. It’s like we miss so often and the big ‘things’ are amplified in the small and despised. The least are the most. What the F can we do? I MUST be bothered to write her, start there. What else? Call Chris Leslie and offer. Anything. All am saying/we know — it’s in the little ones, are the big ones. Gotta get active, assertive and direct. It’s Free Melanie or we’re all bust

  2. Mark says:

    Nos, be it, 00 44 115 711 7666, isn’t correct or now, isn’t.

    I don’t know who said it, could have been Einstein, but he said, you can’t solve a problem from the same level as the problem…


    Let’s take this adorable woman’s plight to the next level and in addition to writing letters/emails in 3d to MPs/prison officers etc., (who have their mortgages (death-grips) to pay so are inclined to follow orders),

    take some time out to visualize melanie in an egg of protective golden/violet light

    and… the perpetrators of her captivity in eggs of restrainment so they cannot dictate her Being.

    Prayer for melanie : shaw

    I hereby command all Forces of Light to surround melanie and all her loved ones, especially her son, with divine love, wisdom and power, in the highest interest of all humanity…

    And I hereby command the LIght, especially the Christ Consciousness and Archangel Michael to protect melanie and all her loved ones, especially her son from any dark and interfering force with love, wisdom and power in perfect divine order for the highest good of all humanity.

    Lots of traffic on this post but it hasn’t made it onto the Top Ten. They play around with the numbers to lock out posts they don’t like.

  7. NPP says:

    Let’s add another then to increase the traffic. Melanie Shaw Theresa?

  8. alison says:

    Don’t quite understand what/how the Top 10 works but I always follow the principle of keep it in focus and near the top of activity…

    So… let it be known that whatever those pathetic baskets try to do to dissolve Melanie into oblivion, she is in our hearts and there is nothing, repeat NOTHING! that will change that. We love her and hold her in our hearts…

    And to those who are doing their best to down her, your time is up! Take the hint! And either come over to the Light and do the right thing or accept that you will be recalled by Divine Mother to be recycled and start again… and we all pray you get it right next time. Your choice!

    Melanie will come out of this smelling of roses but… sorry guys, (those of you infringing on her free will), you will NOT… unless you change your ways… this is non-negotiable by divine decree.

    So in your own interest and for the highest good of all concerned, do the right thing and free Melanie to live her own life in abundance and prosperity!

    We love her!

    Melanie was moved in late August. Her current address is:

    HM Eastwood Park
    GL12 8DB

    Several ways to help her:



    3. send her stamps so she can post letters; she cannot buy them with her Canteen fund ( see above )

    4. If writing/sending cards, her number A4126DE and sender’s full name and address must be on the card/letter itself; she does not receive the envelope.

    Check back with for updates.

  10. danceaway says:

    Addendum to above post:

    Melanie’s date of birth also needed to send funds via debit card; her date of birth is 7/10/70.

  11. alison says:

    Bless you, danceaway, for that really helpful info…

    Let’s keep her at the top of the “Recent Comments” and see how persistence pays off…

    All publicity is GOOD publicity!

    Bless Melanie and keep sending her love and light…

  12. alison says:

    Just bringing Melanie to the top…

    bless her and all those who have suffered as she has…

  13. alison says:

    So I see Kate’s uncle has been charged with assault…

    Where is this leading? There’s probably more to this than the MSM care to let on…

    Watch this space! As they say…

    He is no angel!

    Melanie Shaw has been moved once again. Her new address is:

    HM Styal
    SK9 4HR

    Letter writing is so important to Melanie, but she badly needs stamps and envelopes, so please send some if you possibly can.
    Remember to include sender’s full name and address on the letter/card itself. Also see the links above for very easy ways to send money and emails. Be mindful that all correspondence, both in and out, including emails, is read by the staff.

    If you are within reach of Wilmslow, and could visit, ask her to put your name, address, and date of birth on her visitor’s list so that you can book a visit. She must fill out a form and hand it to the prison staff. To book a visit you also need her date of birth, which is 10/7/70/. Visits can be booked online more easily than by phone.

    Please support her in any way you can!

    Melanie loves writing letters, but desperately needs stamps and envelopes, or stamped addressed envelopes.

    Always include sender’s full name and address on the letter/card itself. Be mindful that all correspondence, both in and out, including emails, is read by the staff, and can be detained.

    Links are in post above to websites for sending money and emails.

    If you are located near Wilmslow and could visit, she will need to fill out a form with your full name, address, and date of birth, and hand it to staff. Visits can be booked on line more easily than by phone.

    Please help in any way you can!
