For those who don’t know GEORGE THOMAS became VISCOUNT TONYPANDY after retiring as SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. His abuse of young boys was widely known at the time – one Labour MP LEO ABSE paid off his blackmailers, Thomas was a vile unctuous Methodist quack who harped on about religion and oversaw the Investiture of Prince Charles at Caernarvon in 1969. This eulogy by Thatcher was delivered on behalf of the NATIONAL CHILDRENS HOME. wAS THERE EVER A MORE VILE hypocritical speech delivered?
From a speech by Margaret Thatcher at National Children’s Home (George Thomas Society Lecture) in January 1990 at the Cafe Royal:- ‘It is a great privilege to be invited to deliver the inaugural lecture of a society founded by the National Children’s Home, especially one concerned with tackling child abuse but when that society bears the name of George Thomas, it is also for me a great pleasure and a very great honour.
George Thomas is admired and loved throughout this country. As Mr. Speaker, his voice became known in every home. His life has been dedicated to the service of people and especially, through the National Children’s Home, to children. He has never ceased to proclaim the importance of Christian values in family life and there have been times when that has taken quite some courage.
George has always believed that children must come first because children are our most sacred trust. They also hold the key to our future in a very practical sense. It will be their ideas and their resourcefulness which will help solve such problems as disease, famine and the threats to the environment and it is their ideas and their values which will shape the future character and culture of our nation. We need to do all we can to ensure that children enjoy their childhood against a background of secure and loving family life. That way, they can develop their full potential, grow up into responsible adults and become, in their turn, good parents
I ran this story two years ago
This is the classic example of how the establishment contains harmful information within its ranks and passes off anything else as gossip – just like the Savile case. George Thomas was a Cardiff Labour MP for years then became Speaker of the House of Commons 1976-83. He was also a Methodist min ister and preacher and deeply religious. But he wasn’t. He was all hokum. He would visit cinemas in London looking for boys to have sex with. He would pay young men to give him blow jobs in train toilets between Cardiff and london. He was frequently blackmailed by these same men. Leo Abse a fellow Welsh labour MP gave Thomas £800 to pay off one such blackmailer. It was Abse who revealed – long after thomas’ death – that Thomas was indeed a continual blackmail victim in his autobiography. Abse was widely condemned for revealing the information. You see everybody in the political class knew that the religios preacher was a fraud but allowed the punters to go on buying it. The story could not leak out to the punters – not till after death anyway. Knowledge is power – gossip is subversive. Yes they knew the Speaker – the highest office in the land outside royalty – was a vile balony who could be heard shouting Order Order in the back row of the Curzon cinema more often than the Commons. think Boothby, Mountbatten…………..think Saville………..
When London’s main newspaper calls it a two horse race between the Tories and Class War for the ultra safe seat of Chingford you know there’s something going on beneath the surface of UK politics.
This week two journalists from the broadsheets have been in touch around the much searched for ‘UKIP OF THE LEFT’ and sensing this might be Class War’s moment. Moments have to be grabbed and turned into momentum….BUT WE’VE COME A LONG WAY IN 9 MONTHS COMRADES…………HANG ON TO YOUR HATS
RICHARD HUW MORGAN CLASS WAR CARDIFF SOUTH AND PENARTH
A big boost to CLASS WAR’s election campaign with the news that MARINA PEPPER will fight the worst and cruellest tory of the lot IDS in Chingford at the general election. Marina has previously stood as the Lib Dem candidate in Brighton Kemptown in 2005. I very much welcome the chances that Marina’s standing will give us to really go after the cowardly IDS with a lively campaign of street hustings and bringing it home to those thinking of voting for him that if you vote IDS again then you’d better believe you aint going to be isolated from the anger. Marina intends to work with DPAC and others bearing the brunt of IDS policies to make Chingford a no go zone for the quiet man.
If you live in the Chingford constituency give me a shout.
