Cliff Richard and the Elm Guest House Discovery

Rumours abound that holier-than-thou Cliff Richard is in some way linked to police investigations of the debauched Elm Guest House.

Rumours also abound that Cliff Richard is also linked to the Jimmy Savile Operation Yewtree investigations.
Are these rumours mindless gossip or is there more to Cliff than meets the eye?
Operation Fairbank was a secretive Met operation investigating historical abuse allegations, first raised by brave MP Geoffrey Dickens.
The allegations centered around claims that politicians and VIPs were involved in a child abuse ring at the Elm Guest House in Richmond.
According to the Exero News website:
‘Met secretly reopens the case of ex-senior politicians’ alleged links to ‘paedophile ring’.
“Police are investigating former senior Conservative figures and other prominent people over allegations of sexually abusing boys in a guest house in the early 1980’s.
Exaro can today reveal that the Metropolitan Police Service has already spent several weeks secretly examining claims of a paedophile ring centered on an address in Barnes, south-west London, which then operated as Elm Guest house.
The case is at the heart of ‘Operation Fairbank’, which is examining a wide variety of claims against several senior political figures that they sexually abused children.”
Met investigates why officers closed down the case on alleged child abuse twice before.
“Police are accused of twice failing to investigate former senior Conservative figures over allegedly visiting a guest house to sexually abuse boys three decades ago.
Case files obtained by Exaro show how the police were told in 2003 that children were “procured from care homes” to work at a guest house frequented by “ex-ministers”.
The Metropolitan Police Service is investigating why its own officers dropped the case. It is part of ‘Operation Fairbank’, which is examining claims of a paedophile ring of a range of prominent people that centered on a property previously operating as a guest house.”
In February 2013, Operation Fernbridge was launched as a full criminal investigation into the abuse but it remains unclear why the Met began its inquiries in secret.
A report in the Mirror claims that Richmond Council staff were told when allegations were made about the guesthouse but again no action was taken:
” Bosses at Richmond Council failed to investigate a VIP child abuse ring despite senior figures being warned about abuse, according to Exaro investigative website.

Former staff confirm abuse at the notorious Elm Guest House was brought to their attention three decades ago when allegations were made about the guesthouse being used as a paedophile brothel.
But no action was taken – sparking fears of a high-level cover-up involving council officials and other senior figures, the Sunday People can reveal.
The guesthouse is being investigated by officers from Operation Fernbridge, who are investigating claims boys were trafficked there from nearby care homes.
The latest revelations – made by former head of children’s services Terry Earland to Exaro and the Sunday People – lend weight to the claims there was a cover-up involving key council figures.
Mr Earland revealed that on at least two occasions he referred complaints of sexual abuse from children to police and colleagues at the council.
But he said that they were not properly investigated even though he is certain that the complaints were genuine.
Mr Earland said: “I would say, almost certainly, of course, it was discussed within the council.
“It has been something in my head all the time that I was at Richmond. I am pleased that it has come out again.”
Scotland Yard officers have taken a statement from at least one of those victims and regard him as a very credible witness and crucial to their current investigation under Operation Fernbridge.
Since November last year, the Met has been investigating allegations that boys in care were sexually abused at Grafton Close children’s home, which was run by Richmond council, and at Elm Guest House nearby in Barnes, south-west London.
Police are investigating whether MPs and other VIPs sexually abused boys at the guest house.”
According to the Needleblog :
” I can confirm that documents seized under warrant by members of the Operation Fairbank police investigation team (now Operation Fernbridge) as evidence in the Elm Guest House paedophile scandal (1979-1982) allege that Cliff Richard, Pop Star and Actor, was a regular visitor to the guest house where the abuse of young boys trafficked in from local care homes took place.
As such Cliff Richard  is likely to be a ‘person of interest’ to the police in regards to the Operation Fernbridge paedophile investigation.”
A list has appeared on the internet claiming to show the names of VIPs and politicians who visited Elm Guest House.
The list details Cliff Richard (who was allegedly known as Kitty) as being regular at the house of filth.
Cliff is now back in the UK and about to start a tour.
Isn’t it time he made a concerted effort to clear his name?
People are starting to talk…
