Carl Beech, the convicted paedophile “formerly known as Nick” whose malicious fictions grabbed headlines, instigated two failed police investigations, and ultimately destroyed the lives and reputations of many innocent people, was convicted on Monday on 12 counts of perverting the course of justice, and one count of fraud.
Yesterday, Beech was sentenced not only for those crimes, but for the possession and creation of indecent photographs—including Category A child sexual abuse images—and voyeurism offences of which he was convicted in Worcester earlier this year. His sentence, totalling 18 years, elicited the expected howls of rage from the usual quarters.
In his sentencing remarks following Beech’s trial, Mr Justice James Goss stated,
It was after the public revelations of the commission by Jimmy Savile of a number of sexual offences that you made your first complaint to the Metropolitan Police in late 2012. The initial investigation was entrusted to the Wiltshire Police. You told them that your stepfather, who had been a Major in the Army and you knew was dead, sexually abused you from the age of 8 and introduced you to a group of about 20 males, only naming one, Jimmy Savile, who systematically sexually abused and injured you and, on occasions, other boys. You could not name other abusers or victims apart from your friend, Aubrey, which was a lie. Due to the absence of support for your allegations and the inability to identify any living person responsible for any offence, in May 2013, the Metropolitan Police were informed that the investigation was closed as undetected.
We were wholly unsurprised to note that Angela Power-Disney had something to say about Beech’s sentence, as she’s no slouch in the malicious fiction department herself. In 2015, three years after Beech, she took her own set of allegations to the Wiltshire police, where Beech had made his first spurious complaints.
In May 2015, Angela got all dolled up in her best polka-dot party dress for a series of interviews filmed by Miles Johnston for his “Bases Project”, in which she claimed to have been one of the survivors of a “child hunt”. She alleged that her father, a military man at the time, had offered her to a group of high-ranking officers on the base where he was stationed in Wiltshire. These officers, she claimed, had chased her naked through the woods at night and sexually abused her.
Shortly after the Johnston videos were filmed, Angela wrote to Charlotte Ward, then known as “Jacqui Farmer”, owner of the late unlamented Hampstead Research blog. She made some rather extraordinary allegations about her father, who even then was suffering from Alzheimers and unable to defend himself:
I reported being molested by my Father when coming out of anasthetic (sic) in hospital aged about 11. I reported this to (the) Psychiatric Consultant at Navan Hospital in front of my Father and Mother in 2003. I had gone to the Psych Unit my only admission in my life and she had wanted me to go home as she said I was neither suicidal nor psychotic, and recovery from child sexual abuse was not something the Psych Unit was equipped to deal with residentially.
I have earlier memories of my Father molesting both myself and (my sister) as well as regularly and severely beating (my two sisters) and myself and we all have severe memory gaps. Mum knows she had extended military or psychiatric inpatient treatments of electro-convulsive treatment to ‘erase trauma memories’ as she was told. I have scars indicating having suffered same and believe we were all drugged on multiple occasions along the lines of rohypnol the date rape drug only much stronger and decades earlier. I believe Dad was not only sexually assaulting and molesting his children but allowing others to also. I believe he used dogs as well in our torture abuse and humiliation.
(In a 5-hour interview with Miles Johnston) I included testimony though not detailed about my Father abusing his children and allowing us to be in Mengele type ’psychological research’ trials called TRAUMA BASED MIND CONTROL whilst Dad was in the British Air Force for 25 years.
(My two sisters and I) were privately educated in many fee-paying convents during Dad’s military service, despite him being only a non-commissioned officer on a modest salary. He mixed with very senior military people often on secret secondments I suspect were connected with the financed and authorised psychological ‘research’ projects, competing with Russia to develop mind controlled intelligence officers and honey traps as well as informants and assassins etc. Back then causing mind fracture was done by physical and sexual trauma ideally in the first 6 to 12 years of life for maximum success in causing dissociation.
Angela would continue to embroider this narrative, and indeed would follow in Beech’s footsteps, though her attempts to insert herself into lurid stories of violent child sexual abuse were less enterprising and imaginative than his. In 2015 she reported her allegations about her elderly, incapacitated father, including claims that he had had a hand in her sister Fiona’s alcohol-related death to the Wiltshire and Somerset and Avon police.
She pursued her police complaints for more than a year, and would eventually make an unintentionally hilarious video detailing the collapse of the case against her father.
Reading the emails between Angela and the police officers involved, one can see that efforts were made to investigate her claims, but absolutely no evidence was found to support anything she’d said, and in the end the police decided not to take further action as Angela’s father’s dementia had progressed to the point where he was unable to understand a police caution and could therefore not be interviewed under caution.
To our best knowledge, Angela did not receive monetary compensation for her alleged sexual abuse, though it is unknown whether she applied for it. Following the collapse of her police complaint, though, her claims grew more and more lurid, and they have tended to shift with the wind—if a new and exciting form of child abuse pops up on the internet, you can be certain that within a few days or weeks, Angela will present herself as its poster child.
Angela must be aware on some level that the Hampstead SRA hoax, which she has eagerly and relentlessly promoted for the past five years, represents a vigorous and ongoing attempt on the part of Abraham Christie and Ella Draper to pervert the course of justice, and that she and others who’ve continued to harass and falsely accuse the families of Hampstead are likely to suffer a similar fate to Beech’s.
It’s hardly surprising, then, that Angela objected—loudly and with her usual casual disregard for the truth—to Beech’s verdict, and even more loudly to his sentence. In Beech she no doubt senses a fellow traveller, though as mentioned, her efforts really pale next to his. Still, it seems that the days of allowing serial fantasists to run rough-shod over the justice system are coming to an end, and not before time.
