Another member: Lord Richard Ryder, Conservative MP 1983-97. Formerly Thatcher’s Private Secretary and then Gov’t Chief Whip 1990-95 – the investigations of paedophile ring in north Wales and deaths of the witnesses years. Became Vice-Chair of the BBC in 2002 and became acting Chair in 2004 following the resignation of Gavyn Davies after the release of the Hutton Report. Ryder then announced that the selection for a new Chair was underway and that he would not be putting his name forward. They must have had someone special in mind! Obviously – Michael Grade was appointed shortly afterwards! Ryder is Chair of the Institute of Cancer Research and a nephew of Sue Ryder. Ryder qualifies for membership of the shithouse from every angle that one views him.
Charles Irving had a long-term close but platonic friendship with Janet Fookes MP, who is now in the Lords. Janet was appointed Deputy Lieutenant of East Sussex in 2001.
Between April 1990 (Letter to Newton) and July 1990 (Ferrers answer) Ferrers steered War Crimes Bill through the Lords. Very strange because the common factor, between death of volunteer Matron McGill at Sue Ryder HQ Suffolk 1972 and death of Welsh Regional Crime Squad Det sgt 1972, was the Airey Neave/Sue Ryder/Willi Brandt release scheme of men held in postwar German internment. Who were they ? Had they escaped Nuremberg ? If Ferrers had acknowledged receipt of that information via Newton from Sir John then he would have been up for misleading the Lords.
Ian Duncan’s former boss was also gay, famously so. In the late 1990s Duncan was a policy analyst for BP’s political affairs team – so Duncan worked for BP whilst Lord John Browne was Group Chief Exec. From 1997 onwards Browne tried to rebrand BP as a green energy company, but I guess that the Deepwater Horizon explosion put paid to that particular idea. Browne became headline news in 2007 when he resigned from his post at BP and as non-executive director at Goldman Sachs after his appeal to the Judicial Committee of the House of Lords to prevent Associated Newspapers publishing an article about his former partner Jeff Chevalier failed. Jeff Chevalier was a rent boy very much younger than Browne who had met Browne via a commercial gay escort website – there were also allegations that Browne had misused company funds. During his attempt to prevent publication Browne was demonstrated to have perjured himself by lying about the circumstances under which he met Chevalier. Nevertheless Justice Eady was most understanding and did not refer the matter to the Attorney General.
Alan Howarth. A friend of Margaret Hodge. MP for Newport East, 1983-2005. Howarth was originally a hard line Tory and a founder of the No Turning Back group. He worked for Conservative Central Office under Willie Whitelaw, was Director of Conservative Research Office and Conservative Party Vice-Chair. Howarth defected from the Tories in 1995 and was selected for a safe Labour seat. In 2005 Howarth was given a peerage. His partner, Patricia Hollis, is also in the Lords but I can’t work out why – the only thing that she had done of note is writing a biography of Jenny Lee. She was formerly a Councillor for Norwich City Council and was given a peerage in 1990. She is, or has been, Deputy Lieutenant for Norfolk. She and Alan live next door to each other but both claimed expenses from the Lords.

Regarding Harriet getting done for contempt of Court. This arose as a result of Harriet challenging Control Units in prisons whilst Roy Jenkins was Home Secretary. Harriet allowed Guardian journalist David Leigh to see some of her notes that she knew could not be published by order of the Court. David Leigh of course then published them. Michael Havers the Attorney General was most unhappy and launched a case against Harriet for contempt of Court and instigated disciplinary proceedings to have her struck off. She appealed, but lost the appeal – Lord Denning heard the appeal. Harriet even manages to misquote Lord Denning in her book. The quote that you were thinking of Harriet is ‘Be ye ever so mighty, the law is above ye’. Except if you are concealing child abuse by public figures of course. Or if you are Harriet – after losing her appeal, Harriet went to what is now called the Supreme Court, lost again and then went to the European Court of Human Rights. The case was eventually heard in June 1986, by which time Harriet was an MP – she won that case. She then used her position as an MP to have the law changed. What a pity that Harriet didn’t put this sort of effort into trying to find out what and who was at the bottom of the Maudsley’s framing of one of their patients for a serious offence.
