Greville Janner Part2
Beck refers to this factor in a letter dated 25th February 1994:

“The insurance company who is responsible for any claim made against the Social Services, has been in contact with a friend in Leicester and said they are unhappy about the claims. Not because they don’t like paying out, which I’m sure they don’t, but because they say the evidence just does not add up, and they believe the claims of some of them are fraudulent”.

Regarding the immediate circumstances attending Beck’s death, Chaney reports (presumably on the basis of evidence he heard given at the inquest) that on the evening of 31st May Beck attended the gymnasium. Three physical training instructors were present: Prison Officers Agnew, Ryan and Wall. Chaney maintains that Beck suffered the classic symptoms of poisoning: aching limbs, faintness and difficulty with breathing symptoms he had complained of to Chaney himself in correspondence. After Beck’s collapse, the officers repeatedly phoned the prison infirmary but obtaining no response they placed Beck on a stretcher and took him there. Health care POs Williamson and Allen then phoned the health care manager, William Woods, who arrived at 7.55pm, 40 minutes after Becks seizure. After forms were filled in, Beck was conveyed to prison cell H-108. At the time, no doctor was on duty at the prison, but eventually one was contacted at Charteris, seven miles distant. Before the doctor, Dr. Noteboon arrived, prison nurse Phillipa Stillman went to Becks cell at 8.00 pm and seeing him blue in colour, with Wood’s help, placed him on the floor of the cell. When the doctor arrived it was too late. When nurse Stillman arrived at Becks cell Woods told her: “There’s no cause for alarm. He’s strained his back”.

Chaney records inconsistencies between the pathology report and the statements of health care manager Woods. According to Woods, between February 1993 and May 1994 Beck had reported sick only three times for “minor medical complaints”. On a police statement, Woods declared Beck was a fit man for his duration at Whitemoor. Furthermore, on a prison report after Beck’s death, the full medical history consisted of two lines: “Heart pain for about six to eight weeks, complaining of back pain and dizziness”.

The pathology report of W. J. Blundell, dated 1st June 1994, stated death attributed to “sudden cardiac arrhythmia, ischaemic heart disease and coronary artery”. A reference was made to “unusual rhythm” of the heart a discovery presumably made while Beck was alive.

Finally, Chaney draws attention to some interesting loose ends. Beck’s solicitors, Greene DSa, employed their clerk, Ian Henning, in Beck’s case. Chaney maintains the Leicester police pursued a vendetta against Henning, compiling a dossier on him and arresting him, allegedly for perverting the course of justice in another case, a charge that failed. Henning told the press: “It happened because I represented Frank Beck to the best of my ability. I don’t judge people. I represent them”.

The Deputy-Chief Constable of Leicestershire, Anthony Butler, issued a circular to all sub-divisional commanders accusing Henning of acting improperly during interviews and “hindering investigations”. This led to Henning being refused access to clients. The Law Society found in Henning’s favour. However, the police response was to maintain their ban on him visiting clients held in custody on the technical grounds that only fully-qualified solicitors, and not their clerks, had right of access. Henning accused the police of harassing him with a view to suppressing incriminating evidence against Janner and he sued them. This action prompted the police to climb down and admit wrongful arrest.

The above constitutes the substance of Chaney’s treatise.

We have not found it right to reiterate verbatim all of his points in particular, an accusation of murder against one particular individual – since this was unsupported by any evidence and was phrased in a way designed to provoke legal action – possibly of criminal (as distinct from civil) libel which would present the person concerned with an easy victory and, hence, undeserved legal protection from more pertinent and substantiated accusations which might emerge at a later date.

We have rehearsed Chaney’s contention that the establishment of Greville Janner’s guilt in the matter of the sexual abuse of Paul Winston would, ipso facto, establish Beck’s innocence of the numerous charges of which he was convicted and for which he was sentenced to nine terms of Life Imprisonment. We cannot subscribe to this view because it is devoid of logic.

Much is made by Chaney of the fact that a file was taken by the police from the offices of Leicester Social Services which allegedly contained letters from Beck to his superiors complaining about Janner’s past relationship with Paul Winston and of his efforts to re-establish contact with the boy at the home which Beck managed. It is asserted that the Crown Prosecutor did not make this file available during Becks Crown Court trial. Beck’s lawyers must surely have known the existence of this file. Did they apply for a Court Order for the file to be produced? If so, what was the result of that application? If they did not, why not?

Accepting that the file contains what Chaney claims it contains, such material would certainly compromise Janner but would not thereby exonerate Beck. Chaney argues that Beck’s letters indicate that he had a proper professional wish to shield one of his wards from the attention of a paedophile, and that such would not have been the action of one who was himself engaged in paedophile activity. This is naive. Hypocrisy and jealousy are unfortunate aspects of human nature and have to be taken into account when considering cases such as this. Beck’s letters could, therefore, be explained in terms of Beck having taken a shine to Winston himself, of having become possessive, as people do, and of having acted against Janner out of jealousy and spite. We can only present both possible explanations and allow readers to make up their own minds. Those who campaign for a review of Beck’s conviction might do well to concentrate on the “tainted evidence” aspect referred to by Lord Longford.

We have also aired Chaney’s contention that Beck’s symptoms exhibited the “classic symptoms of poisoning”. But we have to point out that Chaney has no medical qualifications. While he may be correct in so describing these symptoms, a doctor has advised us that such symptoms are certainly the symptoms of heart disease. But whether Beck was murdered or died of natural causes does not materially affect the questions Greville Janner must answer in the matter of his relationship with Paul Winston.

We conclude by asking the reader to study carefully the text of a leaflet, entitled Janner Fails to Answer Sex With Boy Evidence issued after Becks trial by a Leicester parents’ organisation Concerned Leicester Parents, and which we republish as an Appendix. This leaflet was, we understand, circulated widely to the great, the good and the not-so-good of the city and the county, and to a wider audience beyond. It gives a good account of Beck’s trial and an excellent description of the legalistic and parliamentary privilege devices Janner and his lawyers deployed to shield him from questioning. The information this leaflet contains is compelling and should have prompted further investigation – yet our valiant protectors in the mass media suppressed all news of it and the questions it asks. Only Private Eye referred to it – briefly – and admitted that Greville Janner has left many important questions unanswered.

We remind the reader that these questions – harbouring sleaze to an unprecedented degree – are still unanswered.

UK: Michael Jackson to become honorary director of Exeter Football Club

Pop superstar Michael Jackson has been mobbed and knocked to the ground by excited fans at London’s Paddington railway station, shortly before he set off for the western English city of Exeter with magician Uri Geller and illusionist David Blane. Earlier, Jackson had been given a tour of Britain’s Houses of Parliament. Pop music superstar Michael Jackson entered the hallowed halls of Britain’s Houses of Parliament on Friday (June 14) at the invitation of the Labour peer, Lord Greville Janner.

Jackson was accompanied by magician Uri Geller and U.S. illusionist David Blane for a sightseeing trip that included a meeting with the Lord Chancellor, Lord Irvine, and a birthday party with a Cabinet minister. Jackson was the guest of Lord Janner, who arranged the singer’s guided tour of the Palace of Westminster as a favour to his close friend, spoon-bending psychic Geller. Geller accompanied Jackson as he was whisked round Westminster’s Great Hall and shown the debating chambers of both Houses. Jackson, wearing a black tuxedo with double breasted satin lapels and a white wing collar shirt without a tie, stepped from one of a fleet of blacked-out limousines to be met by Lord Janner. He then posed for pictures with the Peer, Geller and the escapologist and stuntman, Blane.

Asked what brought him to Parliament, Jackson replied: “To visit my wonderful friend,” pointing to the Peer, “and to educate me about this whole incredible thing.” Jackson later joined newly promoted Chief Secretary to the Treasury Paul Boateng for a party on the terrace overlooking the river Thames to celebrate both his birthday and his elevation to the Cabinet as Britain’s first black Cabinet minister. After singing “Happy Birthday” to Boateng, the pop legend signed autographs for staff at Westminster before being ushered away by Boateng saying, “Michael’s got to rest now.” After his tour, Jackson was driven to London’s Paddington train station to travel to the southwest English city of Exeter by private train to visit Exeter City football club, of which he is to be made an honorary director.

Bedlam erupted as Jackson and his entourage arrived to board the train to Exeter as a screaming mob of fans from all corners of the globe tried to get close to their idol. The American superstar, jostled and pushed in the melee, was lucky to escape injury as mass hysteria gripped his die-hard admirers. “I have never ever ever seen anything like that and I hope I will never see it again. Michael was crushed. He actually fell on the platform, said Geller who had invited Jackson on a fund-raising charity trip to Exeter. “Now let me tell you this. If Michael wasn’t in the shape that he is in, he would have stayed there,” Geller told Reuters Television after battling to get aboard the “Jackson Express”.

Geller, who is hoping to raise money for a children’s charity and his third division English soccer club Exeter, said he had never before experienced anything like the screaming mob. The scene at the station was pure chaos, recalling Beatlemania back in the 1960s. Scuffles erupted and extra police were called as the fans surged forward on the platform. Each excitably clutching a 100 pound (147 U.S. dollar) “ticket to ride”, one hundred die-hard Jackson fans clambered aboard the train for a “country away-day” with the star. Later Jackson arrived at Exeter Football Club to cheers and screams from thousands of fans.

After greeting some of the waiting children and disabled fans, he made an emotional appeal, calling for peace and love in the world. “Sadly we live in a state of fear. Every day we hear of war in the news on the radio and television, in the newspapers always of war. We have nations hurting each other, of neighbours hurting each other, of families hurting each other, and of children killing each other. We must learn to live and love each other before it’s too late. We have to stop, we have to stop the prejudice, we have to stop the hating, we have to stop living in fear of our own neighbours, “the multi-millionaire star said.

Lord Janner: My friend Michael Jackson

Leading Jewish peer Lord Janner spoke today about his sorrow at the death of Michael Jackson, whom he regarded as “delightful company” and a good friend.

Lord Janner was introduced to the singer by psychic Uri Geller.

“He came to Parliament in 2002 and I showed him round,” Lord Janner recalled. “He had come to the UK to help fund-raise for Exeter Football Club, which Uri chaired.

“I showed him all around the Lords; it was a Friday and the staff were thrilled. When we got to the place where the Queen sits when she opens Parliament, he looked at the chair and then turned to his assistant. He said: ‘I want one exactly like that for my home.'”

Lord Janner said he had not been familiar with Jackson’s music when they first met but had had the opportunity to see him in California at Universal Studios. “We had dinner together and then I watched him dance. He was an incredible dancer. It was absolutely astonishing.”

The peer said he would miss the entertainer, whose death was announced today.

Greville Janner Part3
The following is the complete text of a four page leaflet published on 20th January 1992 by Concerned Leicester Parents. We have not amended the text in any way.


MP deploys Parliamentary Privilege, a noisy claque and a tame press to portray himself as a ‘victim’ who has been ‘cleared’ of allegations


DURING October and November 1991 the trial took place in Leicester of former children’s home warden Frank Beck. Beck was found guilty of numerous charges of sexual and other assaults against children in his care from 1974 to 1986 and was sentenced to five terms of life imprisonment. At the start of the trial the Judge, Mr. Justice Edwin Jowitt, ruled that the media could not report the proceedings.

This ruling was made in order to try and prevent publication of allega tions of sexual assaults on a young boy against Greville Janner QC, Labour Member of Parliament for Leicester West.

The judge knew that such allegations would be made because in March 1991, at the end of the committal hearing of the case before Leicester Magistrates, Beck was led below shouting remarks about Janner.

Shortly after this incident Janner, accompanied by England’s most expensive solicitor, Sir David Napley, made a pre-emptive visit to Leic ester Police HQ. Janner denied the allegations in an interview, which lasted two hours.


Judge Jowitts gagging order was contested by a press agency in the High Court. The order was held to be unlawful. Shortly thereafter Janner s name emerged in evidence from a prosecution witness, which linked him with a young boy prostitute.

The witness, a woman now aged 31, a former inmate of the home run by Beck, and who had been raped and buggered by him, testified that another inmate at the home was 15 year old Paul Winston, who boasted of being a “rent boy with friends in high places.

She stated that on one occasion she witnessed a row between Beck and Winston during which Beck shouted that Winston “wasn’t going to see Greville Janner any more”.

This evidence prompted Judge Jowitt to decide that as he could not ban the reporting of evidence once it had been voiced, he would interrupt witnesses and counsel at critical moments to prevent mention of “the names of people in high places”.

He did this during the evidence of another prosecution witness, former social worker Mark Salisbury. He had been Winstons care officer at the home and confirmed that Winston boasted of having “friends in high places”. Salisbury was asked: “Did he tell you who those were?” At this point the Judge intervened, preventing a reply.

Salisbury was then asked whether there was one or more than one person in high places under discussion. He replied: “One. He just knew him and had contact with him”. This person turned up at the children’s home with a bicycle as a present for Winston.

Nobody has suggested that either of these prosecution witnesses had any motive for helping Becks case (on the contrary in the case of the woman) or of bearing false witness against Janner. Paul Winston, now a married man of 30 with children, gave evidence at the trial as a defence witness:

He first met Janner as a 13 year old when on a school outing to the House of Commons. Janner singled him out and invited him to visit the Commons again on his own, sending him the train ticket. Janner maintained regular contact with him by letter and telephone.

On the occasion of a third trip to London Janner took the boy to his home whilst his wife was away. Winston stated that he was taken to bed by Janner where they “cuddled and fondled each other”.

Thereafter they saw each other most weekends. He would often stay overnight in Janners suite at the Holiday Inn in Leicester, sleeping with him overnight in a double bed.


Various types of sexual activity took place: petting and fondling, oral sex, simulated sex and, finally, when he was aged 13 – “sex” (i.e. buggery).

When he was 14 Janner took him for a fortnights holiday to Scotland where he was twice “abused” by the MP. The holiday atmosphere was soured on account of Winston stealing cash from Janner’s wallet. This dishonesty did not prevent Janner trying to keep in contact with Winston by telephone calls and letters.

Once Winston was moved to the home run by Beck, these were intercepted. Beck also returned a bicycle, which Janner delivered as a Christmas present.

In cross-examination Winston admitted that he made no complaint against Janner when first interviewed by the police (who interviewed all the inmates of the home run by Beck). He also admitted that in a subsequent statement to the police in which he did mention Janner he stated that he had enjoyed some of the sex sessions.


At the conclusion of Winston’s evidence the prosecution counsel pointed out that Winston, in his second statement to the police, had specified that Janner had engaged in oral sex but had not alleged acts of buggery. This allegation was only made during his evidence at the trial.

It is important to remember that the person on trial at Leicester was Frank Beck, not Greville Janner. None of the above constitutes proof that Janner committed grave sex crimes against a child, nor is it our intention to assert that he is guilty of such offences. It is, however, our purpose:

– To demonstrate that Greville Janner’s statements on these matters in the privileged environment of the House of Commons did not constitute a full answer to the allegations against him; they were merely a cunningly-scripted general denial presented as part of a carefully stage-managed public relations exercise in which a small but noisy claque of friends on the floor of the House and other friends looking on from the Press Gallery played their pre arranged parts.

– To assert that Greville Janner has a lot of explaining to do before he can resume his careers as a Member of Parliament and a Queens Counsel, in both of which roles he seeks the power to regulate all our lives.


MAKING an audience believe it has seen something when it has not illusionism – is a magicians trick which most politicians seek to emulate.

We may expect that any Member of Parliament who has been admitted to the club for top magicians, The Magic Circle, be particularly well equipped to pursue a career in politics. Just such a politician is Greville Janner, MP for Leicester West.

Mr. Janner gave a bravura performance of his skills in the House of Commons on Monday 2nd November 1991 when he was able to create the illusion (in the minds of the credulous) that he had fully answered and cleared himself of allegations of sexual assaults against a 13 year-old boy.

The allegations emerged in evidence given during the trial at Leicester Crown Court of former Leicestershire children’s home warden Frank Beck that ended in October 1991 with the conviction of Beck on numerous charges of sexual and other assaults against children in his care.

Greville Janner Part4

Though Janner was not a defendant at this trial, evidence concerning him [see page 1 of this leaflet] came from two prosecution witnesses as well as from his alleged victim, Paul Winston, a defence witness now a 31 year old married man with children.

This evidence was not of a vague character: it was detailed as to date, location, circumstances and happenings. Such evidence, having been given upon oath and subjected to cross-examination in a court of law, requires a specific and detailed refutation. This becomes utterly essential in the case of somebody like Janner who:

– Helps create new laws as an MP;

– Assists the courts to impose the law as a barrister with the rank of Queens Counsel;

– Uses his status as an MP and a QC to lobby law enforcement agencies on behalf of Zionist Jewry to secure the prosecution of political opponents;

and, last but not least…

– Actively involves himself with youth organizations, particularly the Boy Scouts.

Yet instantly the Leicester trial concluded, the Director of Public Prosecutions “let it be known” that there would be no prosecution against Janner. In view of the efforts of the trial Judge to suppress evidence about Janner, this decision by the DPP stinks.


Even more sinister was the cross-party alliance of the high and mighty, generally referred to as “The Establishment”, to assist Janner to present himself as the long-suffering victim of a conspiracy who finally achieves vindication. How this was accomplished was really quite simple:

At the end of the Beck trial journalists were naturally anxious to question and, in the way that journalists do, cross-question Janner about the allegations made about him during the trial. Janner – no doubt on the advice of his solicitor Sir David Napley – would have none of it.

Napley had acted for the former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe in similar circumstances in the late 1970s and had learned many valuable lessons from that affair.


Thorpe, it will be remembered, tried to brazen his way out of trouble by calling a press conference to refute allegations made against him by his former male sex partner Norman Scott. This press conference was a disaster for Thorpe.

Relentless cross-questioning by journalists on sensitive topics caused Thorpe’s presentation – and composure – to crumple. Prosecution followed shortly after. So Janner said nothing to the press, save to issue an announcement via Napley’s office that he would “make a full statement at the earliest opportunity in the proper place: the House of Commons”.

To the minds of many ordinary people, the House of Commons is a mixture of the government and the highest court in the land. A statement made by a Member involved in a controversy or scandal is thus perceived as some kind of legal process, and that if the House gives – or is reported as having given – the Member its support, then he is in the clear.

There is, of course, a certain degree of validity in this perception to the extent that the facility to make a statement to the House is available to Members involved in a political controversy or scandal. But it has not been, hitherto, a device to enable Members to evade proper examination in connection with allegations of alleged criminal conduct.


Janner exploited to the full the general public’s ignorance of the way the House of Commons operates. For one thing he knew unlike your average ‘Joe Public’ – that personal statements of the kind he proposed to make are not normally made the subject of questioning – let alone protracted cross-examination by other Members.

The Speaker would not tolerate such a procedure not only because Standing Orders have it that all Members are “Honourable Members” but also because while time can be found for brief personal statements, subsequent cross-examination would dislocate the scheduled business of the House.

Janner also knew that statements made by members within the House are “privileged”. That is to say, Members can defame and slander any non-member they choose without fear of legal action being instituted against them which would result in them having to face cross examination outside the House.

Janner’s statement was not a detailed answer to any of the detailed allegations against him. It was simply a general denial. This is a standard defensive mode for the legally trained. The less you say, the fewer openings for difficult questions.

Beyond the flat denial, Janner merely advanced the suggestion that . . .

(a) Because Paul Winston gave evidence as a defence witness in the trail at which Beck was convicted; and

(b) Because there were certain differences between statements made by Winston to the police before the trial and his sworn testimony at the trial,

. . . then Winston was therefore “an accomplice” of Beck, a perjurer, whose evidence contained “not a shred of truth”.


Having uttered these insubstantial sound-bites, Janner sat down to the organised cheering of a claque of his friends (mostly Labour but some noted pro-Zionist Tories like Sir Michael Latham).

House rules forbid TV cameras to pan around the chamber and so did not show that the relatively small number of members in attendance was grouped immediately around Janner.

Furthermore, the microphones used in the House are location specific. The careful grouping of the claque around Janner, in conjunction with the restriction on TV camera movement and the distortions of the microphone system, served to create the impression that he addressed a packed and enthusiastic House!

And that is what illusionism is all about: creating a false impression!

Journalists in the Press Gallery of course, observed this carefully stage-managed charade. But the public could not look to them for enlightenment because:

Journalists in the Press Gallery are not entitled to shout questions down to – let alone cross-question – Members in the House. They would be evicted and lose their press passes (and their jobs) if they attempted any such thing.
The journalists who covered Janner’s statement were not the same reporters who had covered the Beck trial at Leicester – and who therefore knew the detail of the allegations against Janner – but were Establishment political toadies known as Lobby Correspondents. Lobby Correspondents thrive on unattributable briefings and other tit-bits of insider information from their politician chums in the club-like bars at the Palace of Westminster.

These hacks merely assisted Janner’s illusionism by creating the impression in their reports that he had refuted the allegations against him, cleared himself of all taint of wrongdoing and, in so doing, had won “cheers, sympathy and admiration from all sides of the House . . . ”

Of course, Janner had done no such thing. He had simply uttered a general denial, defamed his principal accuser Paul Winston (behind the protection of Parliamentary privilege) and whined about his suffering! He was not asked a single question by any of the Members who heard him, let alone did he have to endure detailed cross-examination as did those who gave evidence at Beck trial.

It is because of the inability of the House of Commons to subject Janner’s cunning and self-pitying statement to the scrutiny of cross-examination that we draft the following list of questions which Janner – and the authorities – must be MADE to answer.


QUESTIONS Greville Janner must answer start with his pre-emptive visit in March 1991 to the Leicester Police. This visit would appear to have been prompted by the outburst at Leicester Magistrates Court of former children’s home warden Frank Beck after he had been remanded for trial. As he was being led below, Beck shouted out a remark which implied that Greville Janner should be facing prosecution.

Beck’s remark was very vague. It was only briefly reported in one or two newspapers and achieved no TV or radio coverage. Greville Janner is not publicity shy. Everything from his pink carnation buttonholes to his entry in Who’s Who betokens his craving for attention.

Public figures are often made the target for abuse by malignant cranks. Celebrities soon learn to ignore such irritations as an inevitable, if unwelcome, result of their high profiles.

Any public figure innocent of anything remotely like the sexual abuse of youngsters would be utterly nonplussed by Beck’s outburst and would shrug it off as the ravings of just another crank – and would presume that everybody else, including the police, would do likewise.


We therefore ask Janner:

1. Why did he feel it necessary to make an uninvited visit to the police to discuss the matter?

2. Why did he, a QC, think it necessary to secure the services of Sir David Napley, the most expensive lawyer in England, to accompany him on that visit?

3. Why did it take two hours to state that he was totally innocent of any crimes and utterly mystified by Becks outburst? Would not a one-paragraph letter have sufficed for this purpose?

According to evidence given by Beck at his trial, he had written to the Director of Leicester Social Services in the late 1970s complaining about

Greville Janner’s relationship with one of the boys in his care, Paul Winston, then aged 14 or 15. As two prosecution witnesses attested, Beck took steps to terminate Janner’s relationship with Winston by forbidding visits and outings and intercepting letters.

Janner pressed his attentions and at one point turned up at the home unannounced with a bicycle as a present for Winston. We ask Janner:

4. Why did he not accept the judgement of Beck, who was in loco parentis (and who at that time was highly thought-of) and allow the relationship with Winston to lapse?

5. Had he been not notified at any time prior to 1991 that the Director of Social Services had received a letter of complaint about him? If so, why did he not issue a Writ for Libel against Beck?

6. Had he been interviewed by the police at any time prior to 1991 in conn ection with Becks letter to the Director of Social Services and/or conduct alluded to by Beck in his court outburst?

According to Janner, when Beck realised that he was to be prosecuted for child sex abuse he contacted Janner and asked for a character reference and that Janner’s refusal to provide such had prompted Beck to engage in a vendetta. We ask Janner:

7. Why did he refuse Becks request? Was it simply an act of revenge for Becks termination of his relationship with Paul Winston, or did he have infor mation, which reflected serious discredit on Beck? What was this information? Did he communicate this information to any appropriate authority? If so, to which and when? And if not, why not?

8. In view of the unhappy history of his contact with Beck prior to 1991, can he advance any suggestion as to why Beck might imagine that his application for a character reference to him would be successful? Could Becks request be construed as a blackmail demand?

Greville Janner has not denied knowing Paul Winston during the late 1970s. In his House of Commons statement Janner made a point of asserting that his “wife and family” were involved with him in his efforts to “help” the boy.

According to Winston’s evidence, he caught Janner’s eye on a school visit to the House of Commons. Thereafter Janner sent Winston return rail tickets to visit him at Westminster on several occasions.

On the third trip to London Janner took the boy to his home to stay overnight. Janner’s wife and family were not present.

Winston testified that he was given his own bedroom but as he cried from homesickness Janner took him to his bed to “comfort” him, whereupon they “cuddled and fondled” each other. We ask Janner:

9. If not only he but his wife and family were involved in trying to help Winston, why did he arrange for Winstons first visit to his home – an over night visit – to take place when his wife and family would be away?

In his House of Commons statement Janner declared that Winston’s sexual assault allegations contained “not a shred of truth”. However, we ask Janner:

10. Did he show good judgement in inviting a young boy to stay overnight with him at his home whilst his wife and family were absent even if he did not take him to bed?

11. On how many occasions did he invite Winston to his home to stay over night when his wife was present?

12. Did he in fact take Winston to bed to comfort him? Did this comfort ing involve him in cuddling or any other kind of physical contact?

13. Does he think it appropriate that a man in his position should share his bed with a teenage boy, even where no physical contact is involved?

Winston testified that he engaged in numerous sexual encounters with Janner in his suite at The Holiday Inn, Leicester. Apart from hanky-panky in the hotels swimming pool changing rooms, it was in a double bed that Janner’s various types of sexual assault culminated in lubricant-assisted buggery.

All these sexual assaults detailed in Winston’s testimony will also have been covered by Janner’s all-purpose general denial. However, we ask Janner:

14. Did he ever invite Winston to visit him at The Holiday Inn? If so, on how many occasions? On how many of these occasions were his wife or any members of his family present?

15. Did he ever invite Winston to stay overnight with him at the hotel? If so, why, bearing in mind the boy resided in Leicester? Again, if so, did they at any time-share the same bed?

16. If Winston at no time stayed overnight at the hotel, did the boy ever leave the public parts of the hotel and join him in his private apartment? If so, why?

Winston’s relationship with Janner was maintained during his 13th, 14th and possibly 15th year. At some stage Winston was moved to the home administered by Beck. According to the testimony of two prosecution witnesses (a girl in care at the home and one of the staff members) Winston often boasted of being “a rent boy with friends in high places”.

Rent boys as brazen as this, though by no means always effeminate, tend to adopt mannerisms which signal their proclivities. We ask Janner:

17. As a man of the world, did he not recognise the signs of Winston’s sexual orientation – and his promiscuity? Did he show good judgement in entertaining such a youngster at his home or in hotels or having any contact with him other than in the presence of his wife and family and/or social workers?

That question also applies to the two-week holiday in Scotland (again at an expensive hotel) to which Janner treated Winston. During this holiday Winston claims he was “sexually abused” by Janner. Winston also volunteered in his evidence that he stole more than once from Janner’s wallet. We ask Janner:

18. Did his wife or any of his family accompany him on this holiday?

19. Did he and Winston share the same sleeping accommodation and/or the same bed? If so, why?

20. Why did he not terminate the holiday and return Winston to the home once he realised, as he must have done, that the boy was stealing from his wallet?

21. Why did he keep quiet about these thefts? Why did he not report them to the police – or at least to staff at the home? Why did he maintain contact with the boy after the thefts, continuing to buy him expensive presents? How could such pampering of a young thief help to reform him?


In view of Janner’s general interest in youth welfare it may be that he has directed lavish help to other wayward or troubled young lads. We ask Janner:

22. How many other boys has he helped in the way that he says he and his wife and family helped Paul Winston? If there were others, were each or any of these invited to stay overnight with him at his home or in hotels, or taken on holidays, without his wife and family being present?

Finally, of course, the management of the Beck trial by Mr. Justice Jowitt is an important issue in this whole affair. He attempted to prohibit media reporting of the trial, and then interrupted the examination of witnesses to prevent Greville Janner’s name being mentioned. We ask Janner:

23. Did he – or others acting in his interests – use extensive political, legal, or other more secretive contacts to see to it that the trial judge would be briefed as to his predicament and to pull every stroke to try and protect him?

There are other questions to be asked: questions which must be answered by The Lord Chancellor, the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Leicester Police and the Director of Leicester Social Services.

A NUMBER of senior public officials have got a lot of explaining to do if the widely held belief that the authorities engaged in a cover-up to protect Greville Janner is to be dispelled.

Daily Mail – Aug 27, 2006
War hero, 82, hits fellow peer in Lords

A former head of the Armed Forces struck a Labour Party peer during a furious row over the Lebanon conflict.

Lord Bramall, 82, hit Lord Janner, a senior member of Britain’s Jewish community, after making what witnesses claim were a series of ‘anti-Israel’ comments.

Peers watched in astonishment as their argument over the Middle East escalated.

Lord Janner, 78, a veteran campaigner for Holocaust victims, was said to feel ‘wronged and seriously offended’ after the attack at the House of Lords.

He immediately sought the advice of fellow peers about how and whether to make a formal complaint against Lord Bramall, who was Chief of the Defence Staff during the 1982 Falklands War and sits as a cross-bencher.

But, after consulting several colleagues, Lord Janner decided he was prepared to accept an apology. They approached Lord Bramall, who later phoned him to say sorry.

A senior source said: ‘There was no anti-Semitic remark but the comments by Bramall were anti-Israel. It took place in one of the rooms close to the Lords chamber and it got out of hand. It ended with Bramall hitting Janner.

‘Those who witnessed the row were extremely shocked by his behaviour.’

The former Labour MP for Leicester – better known as Greville Janner – was left feeling ‘distressed and bewildered’, according to one of the senior peers he consulted.

When Lord Bramall was asked if it was true that he had had an argument with Lord Janner over the Lebanon crisis, in which he made anti-Israeli remarks, he replied: ‘We are very old friends, we have corresponded since then.’ Asked what ‘then’ meant, Lord Bramall said: ‘Since we had a slight argument.’

Questioned over whether the argument involved any physical contact, Lord Bramall replied: ‘Not an assault,’ before terminating the conversation.

Eton-educated Lord Bramall served in the occupation of Japan. He was later on Lord Mountbatten’s staff and became a full General in 1976.

No action has been taken by the Lords authorities and Lord Janner has made no complaint.

Last night he said: ‘Lord Bramall has apologised, and, as far as I’m concerned, the matter is now closed. I’m sorry, I’m saying nothing more.

House of Mendelsohn: Jon Joins Lords, Nicola Leads Facebook to Israel

Lord Mendelsohn (center), with Lord Janner (left) and Lord Levy (right.) Photo: UK Jewish News.

This has been a big week for the Mendelsohns of London, what with Jon being introduced to the House of Lords Wednesday, and Nicola bringing Facebook to the Jewish state on Monday with a $150 million acquisition and a deal to open Facebook’s first overseas R&D center.

At his introduction into the House of Lords, two Jewish “introducers,” Lord Levy and Lord Janner accompanied the newly minted Lord Mendelsohn of Finchley, the London neighborhood where the power couple live and attend Finchley United shul, which he chairs.

A lobbyist, Lord Mendelsohn ran LLM Communications for 10 years before being bought out by communications and public relations giant Financial Dynamics, later FTI Consulting. Before creating LLM, he was the Policy and Communications Adviser to Prime Minister Tony Blair, working under chief fundraiser Lord Levy. After selling his company and leaving FTI, he served as Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s chief fundraiser, and then was appointed Assistant Treasurer of the Labour Party. He is also on the International Advisory Board of The Harold Hartog School of Government & Policy at Tel Aviv University.

While the Lord was in London, the Lady was in the Levant, actually in Jerusalem, at the official residence of President Shimon Peres, telling the 90-year old Israeli, who launched a new Facebook campaign on Monday, about the company’s plans to pay $150 million for Ramat Gan-based start-up Onavo.

“It was a momentous decision for Facebook to open its first R&D center outside the U.S.,” Nicola Mendelsohn said. Peres, who actually launched his Facebook page from Mark Zuckerberg’s personal computer in Silicon Valley alongside the Facebook founder last year, graciously agreed with her.

“Facebook was amazed by the amount of talent in such a small country like Israel,” she said. “We chose Israel in the knowledge that the best talent is found here.”

Obviously talented herself, Lady Mendelsohn worked her way to be deputy chairman of advertising giant Grey London, where she generated record amounts of new business, before heading the industry’s trade association, the IPA. She then becoming executive chairman of advertising agency Karmarama, from which she left to join Facebook this May.

In the same month that she joined Facebook as VP for Europe, Middle East and Africa, the social media company entered talks to buy Waze, an Israeli mapping app, which cratered when Waze’s team refused to abandon the Jewish state for Facebook’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters. Now planning to use Onavo as a local base, while creating the new Facebook R&D center, the Israeli-based computer engineers of the newly acquired company should remain happy.

Lord and Lady Mendelsohn have four children, Gabi, Danny, Sam and Zac.

Patti Boulaye

Then Patti hired the Royal Albert Hall for a charity event which she presented and organised. This was the first of her sell-out “Reaching Out For Africa” events, which she co-produced with Major Sir Michael Parker KCVO CBE at the Royal Albert Hall, starring Sir Cliff Richard, Gabrielle, Uri Geller, Patti herself and BONEY M, amongst others and featured 3,000 Gospel singers whom Patti put together herself. The event was supported by The Rt. Hon Michael Portillo, Frederick Forsyth CBE, The Rt. Hon Iain Duncan Smith, The Rt. Hon Paul Boateng, The Rt. Hon. Lord Greville Janner QC and the new Miss World.

Lord Janner’s TV Fame

Lord Janner told TJ how he was recognised on the streets after appearing as a celebrity panelist on the X Factor-style show, which aims to find a talented psychic to be the heir to Uri’s throne.

A longtime member of the Magic Circle, Lord Janner was asked to give his expert opinion on the contestants’ skills.

He said: “This was a truly unique and enjoyable occasion. When my good friend Uri Geller invited me, I did not quite realise the impact of the show in Israel. The success of The Successor is quite incredible.

My highlight of the evening was when the presenter introduced and questioned me live on Israeli television. I replied in Hebrew, to audience cheers and the presenter’s shock and surprise. He assumed in jest that my knowledge of the language must have been retained from the British occupation during the mandate!”

The Successor has been a huge hit for Geller in his native country but it has also caused controversy after a schoolboy was rushed to hospital after attempting to copy a stunt he saw on the show.

The Canberra Times – 4 May 1986
Appeal to Australian to ‘expose’ Waldheim

LONDON, Saturday (PA)—
A Labour Member of Parliament today said that he had details of British prisoners-of war and an Australian interrogated in 1943 by Dr Kurt Waldheim, the man who might be elected President of Austria tomorrow.

Mr Greville Janner, MP for Leicester West and an executive of the World Jewish Congress, named the Australian as Mr L. Rice, of Mentone, Victoria. He appealed to any surviving PoWs to “expose” Dr Waldheim who, as a senior German Army intelligence officer, was said to have carried out the interrogations at Salonika, Greece.

He said his information came from German Army documents captured by the allies at the end of the war and now kept in Washington.

Knowing Janner’s comments about Geoffrey Dickens, this is the strangest article of the night.

The Canberra Times – Friday 18 July 1986
Ex-PM dumped into the river
Mr Callaghan heads back to Westminster aboard a St John Ambulance Brigade rescueboat.

LONDON, Thursday (PA). – Mr James Callaghan, the 74 year-old former British Prime Minister, was one of six Labour MPs pitched into the River Thames yesterday when their launch capsized during a House of Commons regatta.

After splashing around for about a minute, Mr Callaghan was unceremoniously hauled into a rescue boat by the seat of his trousers.

His colleagues were also picked up by St John Ambulance Brigade speedboats, none of them any the worse for the ordeal.

Sir Callaghan, still dripping, laughed off his ducking.

“The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Robert Runcie, greeted me on the way into the boat,” he said. “I only wish his prayers had been more efficacious and his blessing granted.”

Mr Callaghan, who served in the Royal Navy in the World War II, was greeted by the Prime Minister, Mrs Thatcher, when he and the other MPs emerged on to the terrace of the House of Commons.

“I bet that’s the only time the Prime Minister has ever applauded a crew of Labour MPs,” he said.

The crew had just completed their race in the regatta, coming second, and were on the way to the terrace when the mishap occurred.

More than 100 eights took part in the event, including crows of ministers, MPs, clerks, police and Press.

In the lawyers’ boat, Labour MP Mr Greville Janner wore the full-bottomed wig of the late Mr Justice McNaughton, renowned for the McNaughton Rules on lunacy.

Mrs Lynda Chalker, Minister of State at the Foreign Office, took the precaution of wearing water wings, and 133.3kg Tory MP Mr Geoffrey Dickens won admission to the Guinness Book of Records as the heaviest cox known to mankind.

The regatta was abandoned after two other boats had sunk and with the water becoming increasingly turbulent.

The Canberra Times – Wednesday 2 September 1992
Male au pair stays; call for law change

in London

A campaign was mounted on Monday for a change in British law to allow male au pairs to work in Britain, in the wake of an announcement that Johan Egelstedt, 19, the Swedish au pair who was due to be deported yesterday, was to be allowed to remain in England for one month.

Kenneth Clarke, the Home Secretary, made a last-minute intervention after pleas from the Baughan family, who invited Mr Egelstedt to stay at their Leicester home, and their local MP, Greville Janner.

Mr Egelstedt’s status has been changed from “au pair” to “visitor”. He is not allowed to earn money for looking after the Baughan’s four children, and plans to travel around the country.

Sue Baughan, 38, said yesterday, “We regard the decision to let Johan stay as a tremendous victory, but we’re determined to change this ridiculous law for bidding male au pairs.”

Mr Janner, Labour MP for Leicester West, said he would be writing to Gillian Shephard, Secretary of State for Employment.

He would press for the right of male au pairs to work in Britain to be included in this autumn’s Employment Bill.

“The time has come for this crazy law to be changed.

“It is a ludicrous hangover from the past,” he said. Mr Egelstedt, from Vasteras, 130km west of Stockholm, was minutes away from leaving the Baughan home in Leicester, for Heathrow airport, when he heard of his reprieve.

“I had packed my bags and I really thought that I would be returning to Sweden,” Mr Egelstedt said.

“Everyone I have spoken to has given their support.”

The Canberra Times – Thursday 17 November 1988
Elite Nazis given jobs in Britain after war: MP

LONDON:-Britain had recruited former members of elite Nazi units, including scientists, to counter a postwar labour shortage, a Member of Parliament said on Tuesday.

Greville Janner, secretary of the Parliamentary War Crimes Group, said the names of 250 suspected war criminals had been given to a government panel investigating claims that wanted ex-Nazis found refuge in Britain.

Presenting the group’s study on how war criminals and Nazi collaborators were brought into Britain without being screened, Mr Janner told a news conference, “This report shows that literally thousands of people who were members of the Waffen SS came into the country without proper checking.”

The report accused the Foreign Office of disregarding complaints and actively concealing former Waffen SS members.

Mr Janner, a former war-crimes investigator, said 250 names were in the hands of an official war crimes commission headed by former chief state prosecutor Thomas Hetherington, who was expected to present his report next year.

Former Home Secretary Merlyn Rees, chairman of the War Crimes Group, said its study showed that many government officials had not been concerned about the wartime activities of more than 90,000 displaced persons from Eastern and Central Europe who were recruited for labour schemes in Britain.

German scientists, whose former Nazi connections were known to senior members of the Government, were brought over to Britain to work on both civilian and military projects, he said.

The report said 8000 Ukrainian prisoners of war, who served in a unit formed from a Waffen SS division, were brought to Britain from Italy.

Maccabi GB – 12 Dec 2012

Maccabi GB’s 68th Chanukah Torch Relay delegation received a treat on Tuesday as they were given a special tour around the Houses of Parliament by Lord Janner of Braunstone QC. The group of six teenagers, who are touring around the UK as representatives of Maccabi Tzair passing on the meaning of Chanukah, were accompanied by selected children from Sinai School, Manor Lodge School and Haberdashers.

During the tour, the group visited the Westminster Hall, received a history lesson from Lord Janner on the infamous London landmark, and even managed to sit in the House of Lords during a Parliamentary debate. The trip concluded with doughnuts and Chanukah songs from the school children to Members of Parliament.



Lord Janner invited Sinai pupils to visit Parliament , personally showing the children around the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The children were allowed to sit in the gallery during a live debate in the House of Lords. Lord Janner told the pupils the history of Parliament and then joined in eating Doughnuts for Chanukah. More photos are available on the photo gallery.

24News – 23/03/12
Lord Janner awarded the freedom of the City of Gibraltar

This Thursday in a ceremony at John Mackintosh Square Lord Greville Janner was awarded the freedom of the City of Gibraltar.

The ceremony lasted 30 minutes. It started and ended with an abridged National Anthem. Shamus Byrne was compère and Yvette Zarb acted as as Usher. The mayor gave a speech describing Lord Greville Janner’s history.

Lord Janner thanked the Mayor for his very kind words and was visibly moved, mentioned Momy Levy and thanked all his family and friends for being there.

Finally he extended his offer of help to all Gibraltarians.

The following is the text of the address given by the Mayor of Gibraltar Julio J Alcantara M.B.E.

Your Excellency, Chief Minister, distinguished guests, on behalf of the people of Gibraltar, I bid you welcome to this ceremonial granting of the Freedom of this gracious and unique city, the City of Gibraltar. I bid an even warmer welcome to one special person – SHALOM, Lord Janner, welcome friend of Gibraltar.

I have been strongly advised by his friends not to get too close to him. Interested in magic at the ripe age of 12 and a long-standing member of the Magic Circle and the International Brotherhood of Magicians one can but wonder what he might make disappear ! A prolific writer and expert on matters of public speaking, I stand in awe of addressing you in front of the author of “Janner’s Speechmaker.”

As a fellow barrister and politician, he was already well acquainted with Sir Joshua Hassan, our then Chief Minister, when he was instrumental in setting up in Gibraltar the very first Conference of the Commonwealth Jewish Council. As its President, he was extremely keen that Gibraltar receive international prominence as hosts of this first Conference. Among the many dignitaries that came to Gibraltar, was Sir Zelman Cowan, former Governor General of Australia.

In 2002, still under his presidency, our Jewish community were given the prestigious Council’s Communal Award – bringing high-level publicity for Gibraltar at an international level – awarded as it was in the presence of the likes of Lady Margaret Thatcher and other dignitaries.

A Member of Parliament from 1970 to 1997, he represented Leicester North West and later Leicester West, holding the seat for Labour. Throughout this time he was assiduous in following and supporting Gibraltar’s interest in the myriad workings of the Mother of Parliaments; a loyal friend that could be counted on to raise judicious points and timely Questions on our behalf, whenever and wherever it became necessary. Both his maiden speeches, in 1970 in the Commons and in 1997 in that other place, both were about Gibraltar, the latter one defending our right to self-determination. Having first visited Gibraltar in 1938 as a boy of 10, throughout a lifetime, he has maintained his interest in things Gibraltarian through regular visits to our shores, zealously nurturing his many friendships with the local community, dare I mention Momy!

Greville Janner, QC, aged 63, has been Labour MP for Leicester West since 1974. He was president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews from 1979 to 1985 and is married with three children.

Mr Beck, who was officer in charge at The Poplars, Market Harborough, and the Ratcliffe Road and Beeches children’s homes in Leicester between 1973 and 1986, denies 27 charges of abuse and assault against children aged between 8 and 16 and members of staff.

Pro Frank Beck Abuser site about Beeches


Children Webmag – December 1st, 2011

The Leicestershire Inquiry 1992:by Andrew Kirkwood [Review]

Key points

Requirements for monthly visits and six-monthly full reports on children’s homes had not been satisfied and there was no formal supervision of Officers in Charge.

The appointment of Brian Rice as Director of Social Services in 1980 left the department without a senior manager with child care experience.

Apart from a period between 1978 and 1982, all corporal punishment was banned in children’s homes; in spite of this The Beeches daily log recorded over 500 incidents of children being hit by staff between 1979 and 1986.

Suspension pending investigation was never used in disciplinary proceedings.

Frank Beck implemented ‘regression therapy’ for which he had no relevant experience and for which he received no supervision; he continued to use it when he moved to The Beeches in spite of being told that it was inappropriate for The Beeches.
◾ Nearly all staff in the homes of which Frank Beck was Officer in Charge were young, single people introduced by Frank Beck.
◾ Early warnings of problems were ignored even when they came from reliable sources.
◾ An investigation undertaken in 1978 was ignored by senior managers.
◾ Much of what Frank Beck did did not go through the normal channels.
◾ There was a series of complaints against Frank Beck, one of which resulted in a court case in 1982; only one of these prompted an investigation and no connections were made across the stream of complaints; he was even approved as a foster parent while awaiting trial.
◾ Following the conviction for sexual offences of the Officer in Charge of another home, the recently appointed Deputy of The Beeches took two complaints by staff members to the Personnel Department whose suspension of Frank Beck prompted his resignation.
◾ The Director, Brian Rice, subsequently supplied two references to Frank Beck without mentioning his suspension or resignation.
◾ Allegations against other members of staff in the department were generally handled without a proper investigation.
