Woman awarded MBE for services to children knew her husband was a paedo

Woman awarded MBE for services to children ‘did nothing to stop paedophile husband’, say victims

Charity fundraiser Gill Mitchell MBE

A woman honoured for services to a children’s charity has been accused by victims of turning a blind eye to her husband’s child abuse. 
But last week, her husband was unmasked as a deprived child sex monster who preyed on his victims for 17 years. 

Ex-soldier Hugh “Mitch” Mitchell was jailed for 10 years for the serial abuse of youngsters – chiefly in a bedroom-cum-dungeon in their marital home.

His victims are glad justice has finally caught up with him but they
are also angry because they believe his wife, while not guilty of actual
abuse was aware of his sick behaviour, reports the Daily Record.
They pointed to the length of time the abuse was carried out, her presence
at a doorstep confrontation with one victim’s parent and a
paedophile-themed “novel” penned by her husband.
It emerged in the court that Gill Mitchell, 59, was aware of the book’s existence for 10
years but hid it at her workplace until just before her husband was due
to face trial.

Serial paedophile: Hugh Mitchell even penned book about his sick crimes
One of the serial paedophile’s victims has now written to the
Cabinet Office to demand that his wife is stripped of the MBE she
accepted in 2009.

Hugh Mitchell, 65, was jailed for 10 years and
10 months last week for a shocking catalogue of offences against five
young girls between 1988 and 2005 – including the rape of a

His victims and their families claim that, by the
time Mitchell was brought to justice, his wife was well aware of his
vile nature.
The dad of two of the girls told police he looked
paediatric unit secretary Gill Mitchell in the eye in 1998 and told her:
“Your husband is an f****** pervert and he has been abusing me
The distraught dad is adamant that she was fully aware of the danger her husband posed to little girls but chose not to act.
He himself did not inform the police as he had removed his daughter from the
pervert’s clutches and was concerned about subjecting her to a court
And despite that confrontation, Hugh Mitchell went on to abuse three more victims aged as young as six until 2005.
As well as abusing young girls in the family home where he forced them to watch and act out scenes from porn movies, the beast preyed on his
victims on days out at swimming pools and horse-riding trips.

At his sentencing hearing last week, it was revealed that his wife had
found a shocking “novel” he had written that amounted to a virtual
In the book, a pervert called Mitch “teaches” a child how to ”make love”.
But Gill Mitchell admitted that instead of giving it to the police, she
kept it secret at her workplace for 10 years then handed it over to
prosecutors two weeks before her husband were due to go on trial.
Only then did he change his not guilty pleas to guilty – at least sparing his victims from having to give evidence in court. 
The victim, Karen (not her real name) told the Record that the abuse by the
former Royal Highland Fusiliers musician had wrecked her and her
sister’s lives.
And she insisted his wife was just as evil for doing nothing to stop him.
Hugh Mitchell was charged with seven vile offences – but Karen believes his actual crime count was in the thousands.
She said: “Mitchell is a monster whose entire life was dedicated to abusing little girls. He was obsessed with it.
his wife says she knew nothing about it, she’s a liar. She admitted to
the court that she found this disgusting book 10 years earlier, and my
father categorically told her Mitchell was abusing me back in 1998.
“She knew that – but Mitchell went on to abuse three other little girls, all of whom were well known to her.
“How could she have allowed him to take girls swimming and to be alone in his room with them, knowing what she knew?

“She should be stripped of her MBE. If she has any decency, she’ll hand it back.”
Karen, now in her 30s, is an intelligent and articulate woman but she has
endured a series of breakdowns and flashbacks that led to drug and
alcohol abuse throughout her life. Her arms are scarred from self-harming.

All this she puts down to being sexually abused between the ages of five and 15, up until 1998 when Mitchell was confronted.
She said: “I think Mitchell got off lightly. He should never be allowed out
of jail because he will never stop being a danger to young girls.
“His wife is just as bad. She sat back and did nothing and had the gall to accept an MBE for helping babies.”

Karen’s tormentor and his wife had separate rooms at their former Army home in Kirknewton, West Lothian.
Hugh Mitchell had converted his own room into a paedophile lair with
high-tech video equipment that he used to make hundreds of hours of sex films

Karen said: “The Mitchells were a weird couple – they never showed affection for each other and they had separate rooms.
“His room was like a torture chamber for me and I dreaded going in there.
“He would butter me up by taking me pony-trekking and strawberry-picking – but he would always want something in return.”
Karen said Mitchell would record voice-overs to porn movies, with his own voice offering instruction directly to her.
He would record her while she was locked in his room with the films playing, then film himself as he abused her.
She said: “He was obsessed with child abuse. When I was in that room it was like some kind of evil, sexual brainwashing.
“I didn’t know what I was watching but he would ask if I liked it and tell
me what he wanted to do with me, even before I turned 10.
“He would contrive a million reasons to do things with me. He would take me
out to walk the dogs and take me swimming and his hands were always on
me – even when my parents were in the next room.
“He would steer me into the bushes when we were walking the dogs and force himself on me. It was utterly disgusting.”
Karen’s life is blighted by flashbacks to the abuse she endured and she has even attempted suicide.
She said: “When I was 14, I started getting into drugs and Mitchell would
give me money to buy booze and drugs. I was off my face when I was in
his house at that time and I honestly couldn’t say if he raped me
because of the state I was in.” Karen was appalled when she heard
that Hugh Mitchell had abused other victims until 2005 – seven years
after his wife was categorically told he was a paedophile.
She said: “How could this woman let him go swimming with children? How could she take her eye off him for one second?”

The High Court in Edinburgh heard last week that Hugh Mitchell abused
children at various houses, at Almondell Country Park, East Calder, and
at Bubbles Leisure Pool in Livingston, all in West Lothian.
Judge John Beckett QC told him: “You were repeatedly committing serious sexual crimes against children over many years.”
When confronted about her husband’s behaviour, her likely knowledge of it and her own conduct, Gill Mitchell refused to comment.
Last night, the Cabinet Office declined to discuss any complaint against her.
But a spokeswoman said the Forfeiture Committee, with the approval of the
Queen, could withdraw an honour for any actions or failures to act which
are directly relevant to the granting of the honour.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.

The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.

A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
