I trust that you have all read my recent article on Carl Beech AKA “Nick”? (found HERE)

If not, why not?

After all, it is an important article in which I maintain – and go a long way to proving – that “Nick” is a stooge, being used in order to clear the names of Harvey Proctor, Edward Heath and other prominent former high flyers, who he accused of murder and paedophilia… In the exact same way that the allegedly dead, Lord Alistair McAlpine used the stooge, Steve Messham to clear himself of nonce charges back in 2012:

A former resident of a North Wales care home has apologised for wrongly claiming that the Conservative peer, Lord McAlpine, had sexually abused him.

Steve Messham, a victim of sexual abuse in care homes in North Wales in the 1970s, issued a statement on Friday evening in which he said that his claim was based on a case of mistaken identity

“After seeing a picture in the past hour of the individual concerned, this [is] not the person I identified by photograph presented to me by the police in the early 1990s, who told me the man in the photograph was Lord McAlpine,” he said.

“I want to offer my sincere and humble apologies to him and his family.”

Messham was interviewed for an item on BBC Newsnight which was broadcast on Friday last week. Although it did not interview McAlpine, it was introduced with the words: “this man says a leading Conservative from the time was one of his abusers”.

The name of the Tory peer and former party treasurer, who now lives in Italy, swiftly began circulating on the internet.

McAlpine finally broke his silence this morning to say that reports linking him to North Wales child abuse are “wholly false and seriously defamatory” – and to also say that he had only been to Wrexham on one occasion. Read More

I should also point out that following my aforementioned article on “Nick”, it was pointed out to me that his mother – who like “Nick” once worked  for the NHS – is now a vicar.

Which of course also adds further credence to “Nick” being a patsy. Moreover, the Rev Beech hit the BBC news headlines in 2006:

Treasure hunters trying to crack the Da Vinci Code are believed to be behind criminal damage at a village church with links to the Holy Grail.

Chisels and hammers were used to chip away at walls inside St Luke’s church in Hodnet, Shropshire.

The church has attracted many visitors including tourists from overseas after its links to the Holy Grail were featured in a book and website.

The Reverend Charmian Beech said: “They seemed to know what they were doing.”

A number of holes were chiselled into the stonework of the Grade I-listed 14th Century church in the nave, near the choir vestry door and by a stained glass window.

That window has helped fuel the church’s links to the Da Vinci Code because there is a feminine-looking St. John – one of the major themes of the best-selling novel by Dan Brown.

The Rev Beech said: “We are not sure what they were looking for.

“There is nothing really left to find at Hodnet Church, apart from God. We are fed up with it.”

The church also features strongly in The Chalice of Magdalene, written by “historical detective” Graham Phillips.

In it, his search for the Holy Grail leads him to St Luke’s and the stained glass window. The story also features on the author’s website.

The Rev Beech said they had always welcomed visitors to the church, but would have to review security and may have to fit CCTV cameras.

Author Mr Phillips said of the vandalism: “I think it is disgraceful what has been done to the church.

“In my opinion whoever did it is not only despicable but stupid.

“There is no point anyone searching in Hodnet church because the cup that the stained-glass window code alluded to has already been found.” Source

Nevertheless, “Nick’s” allegations about Proctor are along the lines of the following taken from Dr Sally Baker’s website:

In 2003 Proctor was appointed the Private Secretary to the 11th Duke of Rutland at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire. He entered obscurity but of course hit the media again in 2015 when he was named as a suspect in the Operation Midland investigation into child abuse. Proctor held a press conference at which he angrily denied all allegations made against him – which included allegations that he had sexually tortured boys, attempted to castrate one of them and that a boy was murdered. The allegations against Proctor were tied up with allegations that Ted Heath abused boys – Proctor maintained that he hated Ted Heath so much that he wouldn’t have shared a cup of tea with him, let alone have attended an orgy in his company.

Now, this abuse was said to have taken place at the Dolphin Square apartment complex although I did in fact have to chuckle to myself at the time when following the police raid on his home, Proctor gave a press interview denying ever being in Dolphin Square – you know, the usual old bollocks – and then added that he had always been very discreet… He even implied that it was the press that was responsible for his downfall in the 1980’s!

Always someone else’s fault with these cunts isn’t it!

Moreover, there were many other allegations concerning child rape taking place at Dolphin Square than just those alleged by “Nick”.

So lets have a look at how discreet the only politician to never go to the notorious, paedophile infested, Dolphin Square was:

Tall and gangly – he was once described in the Commons as a loping greyhound – the softly spoken Proctor revelled in the notoriety of being one of the most outspoken voices on the Tory backbenches.

Fiercely ambitious, Proctor was consistently overlooked for ministerial preferment by Mrs Thatcher because of views on immigration which even some Tories viewed as racist. The Whips, in charge of party discipline, also feared his sexuality would be an issue that would return to haunt them. They were right.

The first story to emerge in public about it was in 1981, when Terry Woods, a flamboyant art dealer who was his boyfriend, had left the MP’s London flat after a row and Proctor refused to let him back in. The fracas led to a court appearance in which Woods claimed he was in a relationship – albeit it a very tempestuous one – with the MP. Proctor repudiated the claim and got away with it.

Lurid allegations surfaced in a Sunday newspaper in September 1986 claiming he had organised gay spanking sessions with canes and teenage rent boys in his flat – allegations he dismissed as monstrous.

He was embarrassed again soon afterwards when Woods, who remained his long-term lover, was found in his underpants by the police outside the MP’s apartment. He admitted that he ‘loved’ Proctor but insisted the relationship was not sexual.

Days later a story emerged of how a naked Arab boy had been found under Proctor’s hotel bed on a Tunisian holiday.

When police eventually charged him over the teenage rent boys in his flat, Proctor bowed to the inevitable and announced he was standing down as an MP, admitting to a charge of gross indecency and accepting a fine of £1,450.

Proctor was ruined. He had to sell his house in the constituency and the flat in London and was on the dole for a year.

But he could never escape his past. One day in 1992, two men walked into the Richmond shop. One of them demanded: ‘Have you any boys for tying up before you spank them,’ and then the men started punching him

Proctor’s friend Neil Hamilton, then a government minister and in the shop at the time, came to Proctor’s aide and received a broken nose for his pains.  Source

Fuck me! He couldn’t have been less discreet if he had fucking tried.

Moreover, Dr Sally Baker has the following to say about the nonce who never was:

Harvey Proctor is legendary. He was Chair of the York University Conservative Association between 1967-69, then the Assistant Director (1969-71) and a member of the executive council (1983-87) of the hard right Monday Club. He was the Tory MP for Basildon (1979-83) and then for Billericay (1983-87). In the early 80s some mind-boggling rumours circulated about Harvey Proctor, rumours so florid that I didn’t believe them.

He was alleged to be taking part in extreme S&M activities with under-aged boys. ‘Private Eye’ ran a few articles about him – he was featured in their ‘The New Boys’ column and I expected him to sue them. However he didn’t. Proctor became a source of fascination to the ‘Eye’ and sometime later they published allegations that a building that he owned was housing members of the League of St George (a far-right group) and then allegations that someone had been walking past his London flat, heard guttural noises coming from within and observed bloody handprints on the outside of the building.

Interestingly, no-one from the Tories denied these stories, they just ignored them. The rumours continued to circulate and eventually some Tories started expressing the opinion that Proctor was a serious embarrassment and that they’d rather he stood down.

In 1986 ‘The People’ newspaper claimed that Proctor was in same sex relationships with males and then the shit really hit the fan – in 1987 Proctor was found guilty of gross indecency and fined after participating in spanking sessions in which young male prostitutes were tied up. The prostitutes involved were not ‘children’, but they were under the legal age of consent for gay sex between men, which at the time was 21.

Proctor and others who were charged under similar circumstances now angrily point out that they were targeted for being gay and that the men that they were having sex with would these days be over the age of consent. I take their point about the relevant changes in the law – but whereas some of these men were charged for offences involving young men between the ages of 16 and 21, there were constant allegations that some of them had sometimes been sexually involved with boys under the age of 16.

Furthermore these rent boys had frequently been trafficked into prostitution at the age of 16-17 after leaving children’s homes, where they had been ‘groomed’ by years of sexual abuse – often accompanied by violence if they resisted. This was certainly the pattern regarding the kids from north Wales children’s homes – and John Allen, the owner of the Bryn Alyn Community, was known to own brothels in London and Brighton where children formerly in his care were sent after they left the children’s homes.

The boys pimped by Allen also alleged that he was involved with a major crime ring dealing in child porn and drugs. The defence used by Proctor et al never involves answering any difficult questions about where those rent boys had come from and why they were so willing to have sex with rather deranged sometimes elderly MPs whom they could not have found attractive in any way.

Proctor resigned his seat after his conviction and Theresa Gorman succeeded him. In 1988 Proctor established a shop in Richmond-Upon-Thames selling shirts, ties and waistcoats, after receiving a grant from the Gov’ts Enterprise Allowance Scheme. Proctor had considerable help establishing this business. The Tory Whip Tristan Garel-Jones organised the raising of the sum of £75,000 and over the following years, as Proctor’s shop repeatedly encountered financial difficulties, Tory MPs and former Tory MPs came to the rescue.

Some of the people who were financially involved with Proctor’s business were Jeffrey Archer, Michael Heseltine, David Heathcote-Amory, Mark Lennox-Boyd, Sir Nicholas Bonsor, Richard Shephard, David Evans, Neil Hamilton, Christine Hamilton, Tim Yeo, Michael Brown, David Ashby, Sir Neil Thorne, William Benyon and Sir Charles Morrison.

Charles Morrison was the older brother of Sir Peter Morrison whom it is now admitted was molesting boys in their mid-teens and younger, including boys resident in children’s homes in north Wales. Heseltine and Archer invested more than £100,000 in Proctor’s shop.

Now it is interesting that the odious Michael Heseltine invested in Proctors business venture because he made his fortune investing in dodgy deals. The following is taken from the website: The Barclay Brothers Casino Interests:

In 1954 dyslexic Michael Heseltine who has since gravitated to Lord Heseltine was once president of the Oxford Union and saw the potential to convert an old wine cellar into a small drinking den to help raise funds for the Union. 

Lord Heseltine then invited the controversial Lady Docker to open the small event. Lady Docker was a friend of“Billy Hill” “Godfather” to the “Criminal Underworld“. After the event Lady Dockersent a donation of £600 to the Union. In the early 1950’s Lord Heseltine bought a number of run down boarding houses with his first business partner Ian Josephs. One of these was called “New Court Hotel – knocking Shop” at 45 Inverness Terrace, London W2. 

Lord Heseltine and Ian Joseph would then let the rooms out to predominately “Commercial Travellers” during the week. Then at the weekends, the rooms would be frequented by “sexually frustrated” American GI’s and prostitutes. Around 1957 Lord Heseltine and his friend Ian Josephs decided to sever their partnership and sell their “New Court Hotel – Knocking Shop” at 45 Inverness Terrace, London W2. 

The criminal slum landlord Peter Rackman was interested in acquiring the property and sent around his sidekick and partner in crime Lt-Col George Sinclair to inspect it. Whilst Lord Heseltine and Lt-Col George Sinclair were talking outside the criminal and notorious slum landlord Peter Rachman dropped by in his Rolls Royce.  

Lt-Col George Sinclair then said to Peter Rachman “a little child was killed this morning, she slipped off the balcony – from one of our properties“, Peter Rachman replied, “were we insured?”, yes, replied the Lt-Col George Sinclair, Peter Rachman then drove off. Peter Rachman acquired “New Court Hotel – Knocking Shop” and turned part of it into an “illegal gambling den” and let the rooms to prostitutes. Peter Rackman and his sidekick Lt-Col George Sinclair made much of their wealth themselves by renting rooms to “Prostitutes” and the operation of small nightclubs which were used in part as “illegal gambling dens” as well as being notorious “Slum Landlords“.  

Peter Rackman and his sidekick Lt-Col George Sinclair controlled an army of rent collectors and enforcers who intimidated tenantsand would use brutal force to evict low paying tenants, if that failed they would fill vacant rooms with “Black Men” to force out the unwilling tenants. No one forced Lord Heseltine to do business with these criminals Lt-Col George Sinclair and Peter Rackman it should have been a conscious decision on the part of Lord Heseltine to walk away.

Instead Lord Heseltine embraced the opportunity of doing business with these two low-life criminals Lt-Col George Sinclair and Peter Rackman on commercial grounds for “PROFIT”. In the early 1960’s Lord Heseltine and his partner Clive Labovitch acquired a seventy acre site with planning permission to build 126 houses. However both the design and shoddy build was dismal and was constantly beset with repair problems. By 1962 – 63 Lord Heseltine would write cheques out with deliberate errors to ensure the cheques were returned to buy time. 

Lord Heseltine avoided “Bankruptcy” by the skin of his teeth by only paying bills when threatened with legal action. Believe it or not, Michael Heseltine later became The Secretary of State for the Department of Trade & Industry under the Thatcher government and then Deputy Prime Minister under the John Major Government?

Moreover, the Daily Record had the following to say about Dolphin Square which was home to former Conservative Party leader, Willie Hague – unsurprisingly enough – and was also home to alleged paedophile, Derek Laud too, but you just know that the report is only the tip of the iceberg:

A VICTIM of a VIP paedophile ring believes a girl of 15 was killed at a vile orgy.

The new witness has told police he watched the teenager being taken into a ­terrifying “medical room” by a senior Tory MP – and never saw her again.

The sickening events are said to have taken place at London’s notorious Dolphin Square flats in the 1990s, the Sunday People can reveal.

He fears the teenager may have been killed by a brutal sadist acting out his horrific fantasies.

It would make her the fourth reported murder victim of a Westminster-based pervert ring, some of them household names.

MAIN-Dolphin-Square

The witness told the investigative website Exaro that he was himself abused while in his teens by prominent politicians and a famous comedian at the now notorious Dolphin Square complex in central London.

We are calling the man Darren, ­although that is not his real name ­because he lives in hiding, fearing for his own life. He is the third alleged victim of the gang to come forward.

Darren told us: “I would never have gone to those parties willingly. It was fear that led me to Dolphin Square.”

Recalling the night in 1993 he ­believes a girl died, he said: “I ­witnessed a senior Tory politician go into the medical room with a girl who I know was 15.

“This was a bedroom containing a hospital-type bed with shackles, gimp masks and a tiled, washable floor.

“She was 15 and in care. I didn’t know her name but had been bumping into her for years at paedophile parties. I had been trafficked for sex since I was a young boy, initially by my father.

“She had a smashing smile and wore braces on her teeth.

“I never saw her leave that room, in fact I never saw her again. I fear she may have been killed.”

Darren has identified the exact apartment in the luxury Dolphin Square complex where he claims abuse parties were held while he was a teenager.

He says he was taken to up to 20 orgies, which were ­attended by around 30 VIPs, and ­has described ordeals – ­including beatings with a cane – to Scotland Yard detectives investigating a string of historic sex abuse claims.

A former Tory cabinet minister ­already named to police by another alleged abuse victim, a Labour minister, and the famous TV comedy actor are among well-known faces he says were at Dolphin Square in the 1990s.

Darren claims he was driven to sex parties by the notorious paedophile Peter Righton, a former government adviser who had been recently fined for having indecent images of boys.

Righton would collect Darren and other boys from children’s homes in Suffolk and drive them to London in a luxury car, complete with leather seats and electric windows.

At Dolphin Square they would go to a four-bedroom serviced flat that had been rented out.

He recalled: “Guests would be standing around, chatting and drinking. There would be women there but they would leave before any sex took place.

“The attitude seemed to be that they would leave early so the boys could have their fun.”

Darren said that there were “very powerful” people at the gatherings. He went on: “They stood out a mile. I saw a former Labour minister at one party.

“They were very protective of their jackets. I think they were worried the boys would steal their wallets.”

Darren claimed violation and ­humiliation inflicted on youngsters at Dolphin Square ­became a familiar routine to him.

He said: “This Tory ­cabinet minister always insisted I should be presented to him with ladies’ underwear on beneath my clothes.

“The game he liked to play was that he would pretend he had spotted that I was wearing the lingerie.

“He would tell me I was a naughty boy for turning him on and take me into a bedroom and punish me.

“I was spanked with a bamboo cane that he brought with him, which was painful. I was then sexually abused.

“He liked boys to dress up in lacy women’s underwear. He would make a game of it.

“The minister would be accompanied by a minder who stayed outside while I was abused.”

The Dolphin Square apartment had three rooms ­specially fitted out and decorated to cater for the tastes of party guests, Darren said.

He claimed the spanking ex-minister preferred a ­bedroom known as the “leopard room” because it had a leopard skin rug.

Another was known as the “gay room” because it was “flowery and ­effeminate”.

Darren claimed that in this room he was forced to give oral sex to the famous comedian. He said: “At first he was an interested spectator at the parties but then decided to take part.

“He was much kinder and more considerate than the others but it was still unpleasant.”

The worst of the three rooms was the so-called “medical room”.

Darren said: “This was the bedroom you did not want to be taken into. Fortunately, I was never taken in there but I remember one boy who did.

“He had been dressed up in tight leather shorts and went in with a senior Tory politician and some other men.

“I met him afterwards and he told me he had suffered humiliation too vile to describe and was then beaten up.”

Darren said the brutalised boy was under 16 at the time.

He recalled that traumatised children would gather in the kitchen at Dolphin Square to ­comfort each other after their ordeals. He admitted he was given £50 each time he attended a child abuse party.

But he insisted he only went because evil Righton forced him to. He said: “I would never have gone to those parties willingly – it was fear of Righton.

“One occasion when he attacked me stands out. It happened after I was taken into a bedroom with the famous TV personality and Peter was driving us back to Suffolk.

“I kept saying the name of the comic character played by the actor and saying that he was at the party. Peter kept saying, ‘No he wasn’t.’

“Then he suddenly swung a tremendous punch, while still keeping control of the car. It hit me flush on the chin and I may have passed out. It was a warning to keep my mouth shut.”

Darren was interviewed over three days by Met Police detectives and named his abusers.

His account bears chilling similarities to allegations by a victim known as Nick, who claims three abused boys were killed in the 1980s.

His evidence is being investigated by Scotland Yard’s Operation Midland.

Officers have spoken to the families of two lads, Martin Allen and Vishal Mehrotra, who vanished in London.

Among those named by Darren is the recently convicted paedophile Charles Napier.

Darren says Napier abused him when he was 15 at Righton’s home. Righton ­ordered Darren to give Napier oral sex and when the horrified lad refused he was beaten until he complied. Read More

Course, with so many VIP’s living in the sordid apartment block it is hardly surprising that they have their own water supply… None of the chemically poisoned shite for them:

One of the biggest users of London’s secret water supply is the exclusive Dolphin Square flats complex, until recently the home of the Princess Royal. The block of 1,200 apartments facing the river at Chelsea includes a swimming-pool, restaurant and leisure centre.

“The four boreholes supply our needs,” said general manager Tony Crawford.

“We treat the water for drinking purposes, and this is measured by environmental health officials, and I’m delighted to report that we have no trouble achieving a clean bill of health. The wells save us money, and mean we are never under threat of running short.”

It is estimated that it can cost up to pounds 20,000 to bore and equip a well deep enough to draw off the water accumulating beneath the city. MPs are the most recent group to benefit.

The Parliamentary offices located above Westminster tube station are to have their own supply in the near future. The construction work to tap into the water supply was carried out during the building of the new Jubilee Line extension. Source

And of course, Prince Little Willie had a flat in the Dolphin Square luxury complex:

Britain’s Prince William is set to move into his first bachelor pad.William, 24, has chosen an upmarket London apartment in the exclusive Dolphin Square complex as his new home.

The Pimlico apartment building includes a swimming pool, gym, bar, squash courts and a croquet lawn.William – who split from his long-term girlfriend Kate Middelton in April – has signed the lease for a ninth floor three-bedroom flat in the complex.

Members of the prince’s police protection team will take residence in neighbouring apartments. Dolphin Square is renowned for being one of the safest addresses in London due to the high number of military figures and intelligence officers who live there.

A royal aide is quoted on the Hello! website as saying: “Dolphin Square is safe, central and anonymous.

While William is in the Army he only needs an uncomplicated base in London for short periods. And the real point is that he does not yet want to live in any of the royal palaces where everyone would know exactly what he is up to and who he invites back. He’s got a whole lifetime of that.”

Extra security measures have been implemented and new CCTV has been installed in preparation for the prince’s imminent arrival.

Residents were informed of the identity of their new neighbour in the Dolphin Square newsletter. Source

as did his Auntie Horseface:

If an Englishman’s home is his castle then Dolphin Square is a fortress, built in the mid-1930s to withstand German bombs and resist a siege from life outside.

It survived 16 direct hits from the Luftwaffe, but internal walls are notoriously thin and a former tenant claimed a dinner party was once interrupted by the sound of Princess Anne’s lovemaking next door. Source

I would have imagined that would have been quite embarrassing for Ann & Tim; having ya neighbour knock on the wall shouting “GET THAT HORSE OUTTA HERE”!

Or should that be Nayboar? Just askin’.

The vast complex of 1,250 flats on a 7.5-acre plot close to the Thames was built in 1937 to provide homes for individuals its developers described as ‘notable in public life or society’

Nevertheless, the website dolphinsquare.co.uk had this to say about the insidious dwellings:

If the walls at Dolphin Square could speak, they would reveal a history rich with colourful, distinguished, and sometimes notorious characters. Politicians and peers, spies and foreign dignitaries, glamour girls and stars of stage and screen have all enjoyed the many benefits of life at Dolphin Square.

The proximity of the Square to Westminster has inevitably led to its popularity with politicians. Many have lived here in the past, including Harold Wilson, David Steel, William Hague, Estelle Morris, Beverly Hughes and the late Midlands MP Iain Mills. In 1994 alone, 59 MPs lived in the Square. Christine Keeler and Mandy Rice-Davies, famous for their involvement in the Profumo affair, were both sub-tenants at Dolphin Square.

In the past, many foreign dignitaries graced Dolphin Square’s hallways and gardens. In 1940 the Free French occupied Grenville House, and when General de Gaulle was in the Square, workmen had to be issued with special passes before being allowed entry.

Dolphin Square also has past associations with the worlds of espionage and subterfuge. Ian Fleming’s M was partially based on Maxwell Knight, a senior figure in British military intelligence, a former member of the British Union of Fascists, an accomplished jazz drummer and a long term resident of Dolphin Square. Whilst at MI5, Knight recruited Ian Fleming and a fellow resident, William Joyce. An extreme right-winger, Joyce became an infamous figure during the Second World War – ‘Lord Haw-Haw’, a leading German propaganda mouthpiece during World War 2 who was ultimately executed for treason.

Oswald Mosley, fanatical ‘blackshirt’ and, along with Joyce, one of the British Union of Fascist’s prime orators, lived at Dolphin Square with his wife Diana, one of the Mitford sisters. He left the Square in June 1940 to face internment at Holloway Prison, where he lived with his family for the rest of the war.

During the 1940s and 1950s Dolphin Square was the home to several comedians including Arthur Askey, Tommy Trinder and Vic Oliver. Oliver’s wife Susan was herself a famous actress and the daughter of Winston Churchill. After a party at Nelson House one night, the brass numbers on a number of doors at Nelson House had been swapped around, giving rise to rumours that this was the prank of some of these residents. Former music hall star Bud Flanagan – one half of the hugely successful double act Flanagan and Allen – lived in Raleigh House. Flanagan he enjoyed particular success during World War 2 with songs like ‘We’re Going To Hang Out The Washing On The Siegfried Line’. His voice is still familiar today singing Dad’s Army’s ‘Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mr Hitler’.

Dolphin Square’s connections with espionage were revived in the early 1960s. Tenant John Vassall, an admiralty clerk, was exposed as a Soviet spy in 1962. It is rumoured that agents from both sides of the former Iron Curtain lived here.

And in 1999, the Guardian newspaper also wrote the following about the place:

A £3 black cab fare from Westminster, the building is a mini parliament with about 50 MPs renting apartments. Alistair Darling, the social security secretary, could share a taxi home with Estelle Morris, schools minister, Gisela Stuart, health minister, Beverley Hughes, environment minister, and David Clelland, a whip.

Or if they were chauffeured in their government cars they would be able to give lifts to some of the many Labour backbenchers with flats there, including Stuart Bell, Gavin Strang, Hazel Blears, Tom Pendry, Anne Begg, Sir Ray Powell, Brian Iddon and Lynne Jones.

The Hagues, William and Ffion, live in Keyes House at the back of the complex to lead a Tory contingent that includes the former cabinet minister Lord Jenkin of Roding – who, coincidentally was until recently president of Friends Provident, which triggered the controversy by trying to regain the lease.

David Weeks, Dame Shirley Porter’s sidekick during Westminster’s homes for votes scandal, has an apartment and used to sit on Dolphin Square’s management committee, which sets the rents.

Lords Desai, Tordoff, Dormond, Brooks, Gregson, Sewel, Campbell of Croy and Belhaven and Stenton have set up home in the blocks.

The Tory MP Iain Mills drank himself to death there and lay undiscovered for two days.

Past residents include Princess Anne and her husband, Tim Lawrence, who quit Drake House after supposedly labelling it “naff”.

The one-time world speed record holder Donald Campbell had a pied-à-terre and novelist CP Snow wrote about his tenancy. Charles de Gaulle lived there during the second world war. Harold Wilson had a flat, as did Oswald Mosley. Source

Course, with Proctor & Co now cleared and thus untouchable I don’t expect former residents like William Hague and Derek Laud to fall under police suspicion any time soon.

Instead the police will concentrate on the dead such as Cyril ‘fat boy’ Smith and former Men in Tights boss Peter Hayman… Just sayin’.
