    21. Don Hale told that IOPC-managed report on his claims “is absolutely riddled with errors, inaccuracies and incorrect information…” “It omits a lot of crucial information… It says it is a managed report, but clearly, it is mis-managed… totally ridiculous.”

  19.   Retweeted

    20. Don Hale let rip at about IOPC-managed report that dismissed his claims. “I have dealt with the likes of IPCC and, before them, CIB2, who work in this way. “It’s the same MO. No matter what they call themselves now… they are trying to discredit my evidence.”

  20.   Retweeted

    19. Amid increasing protests from some core participants about inconsistent decisions on which written statements are adduced, and well after Don Hale finished giving evidence, his two written statements to inquiry were finally adduced.

  21.   Retweeted

    18. Again, initially omitted to adduce Don Hale’s statement, but did adduce three police statements even though he disputed their accuracy. Inquiry even managed to adduce Tom O’Carroll’s statement along the way, despite not doing same for Don Hale’s statement.

  22.   Retweeted

    17. In 1987, News of the World called Don Hale, he told , re “secret meetings being headed by Leon Brittan”, that “people in power” wanted to lower age of consent. “They were determined to run a story… I thought… maybe… a story would appear, and it never did.”

  23.   Retweeted

    16. Neither counsel to – nor any panel member – thought to ask Don Hale whether Special Branch might have been, er, bluffing when they told him that they had a D-Notice. One can understand why he might not have challenged them at the time. Or asked for a receipt.

  24.   Retweeted

    15. After Special Branch seized file, counsel to asked Don Hale that all-important question that was on the tip of ALL of our tongues… “Did you ask for a receipt?” A: “No.” Q. “Why not?” A: “I don’t know. With hindsight, there’s a lot of things I wish I’d done.”

  25.   Retweeted

    14. Counsel to – after soft-balling corporate witnesses for IOPC and Met earlier in the week – questioned Don Hale like a chippy hack prosecutor cross-examining a scruffy ne’er-do-well in the dock of some provincial criminal court…

    13. Barbara Castle told Don Hale that Special Branch were sometimes following her because of her interest in secret parliamentary group linked to PIE, heard. “She believed she was under surveillance.” Clearly, Barbara Castle was a threat to national security, too.

    10. Cyril Smith “was determined that I shouldn’t publish a story about this. He wanted me to hand over everything to him there and then, which I refused to do. He got very, very aggressive.” Don Hale to on obtaining those leaked minutes of meetings in Parliament.

  30.   Retweeted

    9. Don Hale told that he called Jeremy Thorpe about the secret meetings. “The next day, Cyril Smith… turned up unexpectedly at my office… he stormed in, he was swearing and f’ing and blinding… he was absolutely breathing fire. I thought he was going to hit me.”

    Many surprising and highly debatable rabbits were miraculously produced from many hats… not previously declared to me.. so that there was NO opportunity to have counter evidence to hand. And yet, my compelling evidence that completely contradicted the IPOC report was refused.

  40. This suggests that counsel to subjected Don Hale to a form of cross-examining no longer allowed in courts. Both sides are expected to disclose evidence to each other in advance of hearings so that they are properly able to assess the material and respond when asked.

  41.   Retweeted
    Replying to 

    Yes, the full interview was contained within my written evidence to the Inquiry and my witness (named) gave chapter and verse about the dirty-trick tactics employed by SPECIAL BRANCH at that time. He even wrote to Met Commissioner about his concerns but his evidence was ignored.

  42. For all those who claim that Don Hale’s account from 1984 about those secret paedophile meetings of MPs/Lords is far-fetched, I note that it is no more far-fetched than the brazen cover-up that is being performed before our eyes at . Talk about hiding in plain sight.

  45. I also saw that counsel to said that they had not found hand-written Met statement that you said was altered for typed version. Yet, while standing, he then produced it like the proverbial rabbit out of a hat. You are not even allowed to do that in court these days.

  46. About 15 police officers carried out the raid, Don Hale told . But, yes, quite…

    The mainstream media are ignoring this whilst universally attacking the opposition, but sure, we have a free press.

    Very important thread, given the media have given up on it. Reminder: the British establishment are engaged in covering up child abuse at the highest levels of political and civil society. And honestly, in this day & age, just insert your country for “British” & it’ll be true.

  49. Wow. A huge point here, but one that was not covered by . Covered up, perhaps, but definitely not covered. Do you mean, Don, that you have told inquiry about this, but counsel omitted to ask you about it? If so, is this witness prepared to give evidence to inquiry?

  50.   Retweeted

    My response at the Inquiry totally trashed the claims from this ex PIE chief. On his own admission he had nothing to do with the organisation from 1981 – when he was jailed – and had nothing whatever to do with them after that. My evidence related to important events c1984 onward

    Replying to 

    Great interpretation of the absurdity of this review. When pinned against a wall, threatened with jail, and facing 15 special branch and heavy duty police officers determined to confiscate my evidence against key politicians, it somehow slipped my memory to ask for a receipt!

  52.   Retweeted

    At times I felt like I was on trial. Compelling evidence including 46 emails to and from me to the IPOC rep and Met over a 6 month period refused by Inquiry despite containing clear information that contracted false claims of final IPOC report.

  53. Police whistleblowers and others who had their claims re investigated in “IOPC-managed” “investigations” tell me much the same thing. Difference is that Don Hale, despite best efforts of counsel to , set this out clearly during his testimony yesterday.

    23. I highlighted yesterday how, when questioning Howard Groves, counsel to , Brian Altman, referred to boys as young as 11 or 12 as having “prostituted themselves”. He also often used term “rent-boy” inappropriately (although he sometimes read it from evidence)…

    22. Malcolm Sinclair thought that this operation was in Cricklewood, but Paul Holmes said that Cyril Smith, but not Jeremy Thorpe, Leon Brittan or Edward Heath were suspects. So, some confusion here. Different ops? Again, did not adduce Sinclair’s statement.
