‘Private Eye’ Apologists for Abusers slur ESTD Conference Presenters Professor Alexis Jay and Dr Rainer Kurz

Private Eye (23rd February 2018)

Not nice! An article in Private Eye 1464 continues the magazine’s unabated propaganda against abuse victims. In 2017 I scored a hat-trick featuring in three disinformation articles deriding investigations into sexual abuse allegations against Ted Heath.

I was delighted that Prof Alexis Jay presented a key note address at the Berne conference of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation outlining the investigations in Rotherham and the work of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

A few days after publication news of the Telford scandal broke:


In the Cardiff case a similar scenario emerged centred on a Kebap shop owner who reportedly asked for the keys to a flat while the tenant was going to be on holiday. As it happens this may well have been a ‘set up’ to frame the mother who had escaped an incestuous Satanist Ritual Abuse (SRA) family environment. Interestingly one of the main abusers in the case is of Pakistani origin but was granted British citizenship. Apparently top leaders in the Satanist and Luciferian cults decided in the 1980’ies to target Muslims for recruitment!

Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) was included for the first time in DSM-III published in 1980 alongside Post-traumatic Stress Disorder – the first two disorders that acknowledge a development pathway to a presenting mental health condition. For the previous 100 years mental health professionals had obsessed about ‘controlling’ inconvenient individuals (using Lobotomy, ECT and medication) and picking diagnosis after diagnosis without properly exploring the background, social context and individual disclosures.

Nowadays referred to Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) the condition tends to be the result of neglect and abuse by primary carers in the first 5 years of a child’s life. In a 1995 survey by the BPS Working Group on Recovered Memory 15% of Clinical Psychology practitioners reported that they had encountered at least one case of Satanist Ritual Abuse (SRA).

The Psychologist (May 1995) Recovered Memory WG Article

Prof Chris Brewin, member of that working group, gave an excellent key note covering the topic in depth.

My presentation ‘An Organised Ritualised Crime Abuse Network (ORCAN) in the British Isles?’ was part of a symposium ‘Extreme Abuse, Mind Control & Authority Compromise’. Slides can be found below (audio file available on request):

Private Eye seems to have overlooked my poster ‘Complex Trauma, Somatoform Dissociations & Psychometric Assessment’ which details how the mother in the ‘Cardiff Case’ was reportedly forced at age 8 to have sex with a girl of the same age on a stage and how medical records are compatible with a teenage pregnancy succeeding from incestuous impregnation resulting in the birth of a baby  around March or April 1997 in the Kingston Hill area of Kingston-upon-Thames. The baby girl reportedly ‘disappeared’ within a few days and the abusive parents went to a funeral.

Private Eye fails to draw attention to my paper ‘Lost Memories, False Prophets & BPS Guidelines’ which outlines how False Memory associates dominate discourse in the British Psychological Society (BPS). False Memory Syndrome is a pseudo-scientific term and not a diagnosis recognised in DSM!

These slides can be downloaded from an earlier blog post:


I alerted the IICSA to the Private Eye article submitting it together with the ESTD 2017 symposium slides, my ESTD 2014 presentation and a link to the Dyslexia Conference symposium I organised in 2016:

Some aspects of the case, related to Dyslexia and Twice exceptional capability pattern, are described in papers 3 and 4 of the above Symposium I organised at the International Conference of the British Dyslexia Association (BDA) in March 2016.

I was pleased to receive a fairly comprehensive reply from the IICSA:
