Yesterday we touched on the documented links between the Ritual Abuse Information Network and Support (RAINS); their notorious “RAINS list” of random people compiled by co-founder Joan Coleman from the “alter” personalities of her client “Helen G.”; and Operation Yewtree, the police investigation into allegations of sexual abuse by the late Jimmy Savile.
One of our readers kindly pointed out to us that retired police officer Jonathan Wedger, who has recently been trying to “whistle-blow” about alleged SRA via various friends in the online troofer community, seemed quite well acquainted with the RAINS list:
Readers may remember Mr Wedger as “Nathan Numnuts Wedger”, much reviled by Abraham Christie for his role in forwarding an email to police which demonstrated conclusively that the Hampstead SRA hoax had been planned and executed as a publicity gambit.
In the above video with Bill Maloney, the two discuss the RAINS list:
Bill: It’s also the subject itself, Jon. People are frightened of that subject. And something that we, both you and I believe goes on, well we actually know it goes on, is something called S R A. Satanic Ritual Abuse. And it goes on, Jon…
Jon: Well, it’s the elephant in the room. Any act of sexual (fondness?) of a child has got a big Satanic element to it, you know, and it’s one of those things that the more you look into it, the more it crops up, y’know, and there is an organised element to it. Now initially, I didn’t really come across it, but then it did start cropping up. And the more we look into it now, the more it’s [inaudible]. And you’ve got to look at, why are these people clamping down on this? And these are people in positions of privilege and power. One of the things that really sort of changed it was when there was a list that was compiled that we class as the RAINS list.
Bill: Oh! You said the name! [both laugh]
Jon: It’s an acronym. It stands for Ritual Abuse or something like that, I can’t remember. And it was such a comprehensive list, it was so well put together…
Bill: What kind of people were on it, Jon?
Jon: It was a mix. I mean there were names I never heard of…
Bill: I don’t mind so much about the names, I mean what they’ve done, where they come from, were they…there was politicians on there now…
Jon: Politicians, police officers…
Jon: There were lords, there were members of the clergy, there were drug addicts, there were just normal standard people, a lot of the people come from the care system…
An interesting point: both men seemed a bit shocked that Mr Wedger had dared to name the RAINS list: “Oh! You said the name!” They giggle together as though he’d said something very naughty.
In a way, he had.
The RAINS list
On the S.A.F.F. website, you will find a partially redacted version of the RAINS list. As you can see from that list, individuals both living and dead are charged not only with child sexual abuse, but with crimes such as murder.
At least one person on the list who was arrested was comedian Jimmy Tarbuck, who was arrested in 2013 during Operation Yewtree. Within a year the charges against him were dropped, not just because of insufficient evidence, but because evidence showed that he’d been the victim of a false allegation.
However—and this is curious given that the RAINS list has been passed around as if it were a factual document and not just a collection of random people curated by a deluded psychiatrist—none of the instances of alleged “human sacrifice” were ever reported to police, let alone investigated, says S.A.F.F.:
You will note from the document below that stunning allegations of human sacrifice at stately homes attended by ‘the highest in the land’ are accepted and recorded without any attempt to confirm or qualify the details. The allegations are passed on to others who receive this list as though a proven fact.
There is no mention whether Joan Coleman, who appears to have been the author of this list, actually bothered to tell the police about these ‘murders’ and what the results of their enquiries, if any, were. Remember that Joan and Valerie [Sinason] were in close touch with officials in the Met. Did they pass on this information? If not why not? If they did then what did the police investigations result in? Certainly no prosecutions as far as we are aware.
Surely, as a police officer himself, Jonathan Wedger would have been aware that the list constituted unverified, un-investigated nonsense?
Or would he have just looked down at the list, thought to himself, “Sure, seems plausible to me”, and accepted it as fact?
Wedger, Maloney, and Veale
Another curiosity in the Maloney/Wedger video comes at about 6:23, when Bill Maloney brings up former Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale, who consulted “whistle-blowers” such as, erm, Robert Green in his attempt to prove that former PM Edward Heath had been a paedophile.
In October 2017, Richard Bartholomew of Barth’s Notes noted that Mr Green had based his advice to Mr Veale upon information gleaned from the RAINS list:
For the record, I was merely acting as a messenger in relaying details to Chief Constable Veale regarding information passed on to me by the eminent specialist into sexual abuse, Dr Joan Coleman. Five witnesses, all totally independent of each other, had provided, years ago, evidence of being sexually assaulted by Heath and all had referred to the same highly unusual feature about Heath common to all five cases. Hence the credibility of the evidence of witnesses as described by the Chief Constable.
I had absolutely no personal contact with any of these witnesses, nor do I know of their identities. As Dr Coleman is very elderly, I was entrusted with this information over seven years ago. Included also was evidence against Jimmy Savile, well before the Daily Mail or any other mainstream publication had the courage to expose this notorious paedophile.
Here’s how Dr Coleman described Mr Heath in the RAINS list:
Ted Heath: Former Prime Minister. Homosexual but not exclusively, where children are concerned. He has been mentioned by at least 5 SRAS, none of whom know each other. Several have described long finger nails. Am told that he wore false claws added to his nails, with which he clawed his child victims. He died in 2005. The cult held their own funeral on 31st July – 1st August 2005.
A couple of notes about this allegation: it seems likely that the “false claws added to his nails” piece was added in order to explain away the fact that in all known photographs, Mr Heath had short fingernails.
And Mr Heath’s Christian funeral took place in Salisbury cathedral in 25th July 2005 with over 1,600 guests attending. Details, details.
In the video, Bill salutes Mr Veale, and says that a member of his family was one of those who’d made allegations that he’d been abused by “a prime minister of this country….And I think that’s why Mike incorporated my family into [the Operation Conifer report]”.
Mr Wedger responds:
Well, funny you’d say that, because Mike has contacted me, and one of the things he said is, ‘If they’ve been doing this to me as a chief constable, God alone only knows what they’ve been doing to you’….And I said, ‘They’ll come for you, Mike, they’ll come for you like they came for everyone.
So it seems that in addition to Mr Veale’s connection with Robert Green, who fed him false allegations from Joan Coleman’s RAINS list, he has at least a passing acquaintance with Bill Maloney and/or his family member, and has reached out to Jonathan Wedger, both of whom are also avid promoters of the SRA narrative.
The connections are becoming ever more evident, as we see Mr Wedger making nice with the Scottish Fresh Start Foundation; meanwhile, the FSF’s Catriona Selvester has “updated” the RAINS list and plastered it not only on her own blog but on various other sites around the internet (presumably for safe-keeping?).
It’s very clear that we’re looking at yet another attempt by SRA promoters across the UK to distribute and publicise the RAINS list, and provoke yet another round of witch-hunts.
