Westminster Paedophiles: The Elm Guest House, Vishal Mehrotra And Whispers

by | 20th, November 2014



THE Westminster Peadophile ring story continues to build:

The Times :

The detective who led the investigation into Britain’s most notorious child abusers said its files could provide evidence for Scotland Yard’s investigation of an alleged Westminster paedophile ring. Roger Stoodley said he would be delighted if the Metropolitan police were to reopen Operation Orchid, the inquiry into the Sidney Cooke gang, which abducted, abused and murdered children in the 1970s and 1980s.

Sidney Cooke is a depraved killer:

In 1999, Sidney Cooke admitted five counts of indecent assault and five counts of buggery committed between 1972 and 1978 at Manchester Crown Court.  Cooke, 72, preyed on youngsters as he travelled across the country working on fairgrounds in the 1970s. The horrific assaults only came to light after a television appeal following his release from jail after serving nine years for the killing of a teenage boy during a homosexual orgy.

The Times adds:

The murders of three children Jason Swift, 14, Barry Lewis, six, and Mark Tildesley, seven were solved but detectives believed that as many as 17 other abductions and murders were connected.

Mr Stoodley said he had looked for possible links between the Cooke group and the Elm Guest House, in southwest London, which is at the centre of allegations about an establishment paedophile conspiracy, but was unable to find any.

The former detective chief superintendent, tells the paper:

“The Orchid files if they still exist could hold the key to renewed concerns over the handling of police investigations into two child abductions… Elm Guest House came up in our inquiry but it was not within our remit at the time. It is in our system, but we could not establish a link with Cooke.”

He said Leonard Smith, one of Cooke’s accomplices, had been a young prostitute in the West End who could have come into contact with prominent figures but he had refused to discuss his past.

The BBC reported on Cooke:

Known by colleagues as Hissing Sid, he set up his children’s ‘Test Your Strength’ machine at fairgrounds around the country using the opportunity to meet boys and lure them into depraved homosexual orgies…

Cooke, who habitually dressed in a filthy suit and trilby hat, was one of a 1980s gang suspected of being responsible for the killing of up to nine young boys during sex orgies.

Operating from a flat on the Kingsmead estate in Hackney, east London, the gang hired rent boys or snatched children off the streets and subjected them to horrific sexual torture.

“I can’t think of anything worse that could happen to a human being and a vulnerable young man The former farm worker led the paedophile ring jailed for killing 14-year-old Jason Swift from Hackney, East London, in 1984.

A gang of men each paid £5 to have sex with Jason in the “stinking, filthy” flat they used on the Kingsmead.

A few hours later he was dead. His body was found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of London.




But incredibly, he was freed:

Cooke was sent to prison for 19 years in 1989 for Jason’s manslaughter but later managed to get his sentence reduced to 16 years by appeal court judges and was released after just nine in 1998.

He convinced the judges that Leslie Bailey was the evil genius and the mastermind behind the gang.

Cooke, however, was named by Bailey as one of the killers of seven-year-old Mark Tildesley, who vanished in June 1984.


In 1991 the Crown Prosecution Service declined to prosecute Cooke for Mark’s murder.

Journalism matters:

Angry protests had greeted his release from prison last year and he was forced to keep on the move as soon as his identity was discovered.

He eventually lived, at his own request, in a suite of three cells at Yeovil police station in Somerset where the Home Office provided him with a TV, washing machine, microwave and small cooker.

Nearly a year after his release, Cooke was arrested at the police station by Thames Valley Police detectives investigating allegations of rape and other serious sexual offences which had come to light after the Channel 4 documentary, Dispatches.

The elite want to shut down journalism. They want free speech censored. The Steeple Times notes:

…one has to ask why their has not been more wider reporting as to why Operation Fernbridge, which is looking into a “VIP paedophile ring” at the Elm Guest House in Rocks Lane, near Barnes Common in London, has so far been allocated just £25,000 in funds since its launch in January 2013 despite 300 investigative lines having been highlighted. By comparison, Operation Weeting, the inquiry into the phone hacking scandal, had just 77 investigative lines yet cost an astounding £11,200,000…

Amongst those who carried advertisements “strongly recommend[ing]” the Elm Guest House’s “sauna with video facilities” in 1982 was the magazine of the Conservative Group for Homosexual Equality.

At the time, homosexuality was not widely accepted in the Tory Party:

Dr Adrian Rogers, chairman of the Conservative Family Campaign, said in 1991 that homosexuality was “a sterile, disease-ridden and God-forsaken relationship”.

Paedophila was not always viewed then as it is now.

The Mail adds:

During a police raid on a property in central London last month, detectives seized a list of names of high-profile alleged visitors to the Elm Guest House in Barnes, South-West London a gay-friendly establishment, and one where under-age rent boys and children from the Grafton Close home were reportedly brought to have sex with adult men.

The list includes a number of senior MPs, a high-ranking policeman, a leading tycoon, figures from the National Front and Sinn Fein, an official of the Royal Household, an MI5 officer, two pop stars and the traitorous Soviet spy Anthony Blunt.

And what other possible links to Westminster?

The owners of the Elm Guest House, Carole and Harry Kasir, were fined £1,000 each and given suspended nine-month sentences at the Old Bailey but were found not guilty of running a brothel.
Mrs Kasir who committed suicide in 1990 later admitted to child protection officers that children from the council-run Grafton Close Children’s Home had been taken to the brothel and gave them names of people who had visited the guesthouse.

The late Liberal MP Cyril Smith is one public figure widely alleged to have abused children from Grafton Close at the Elm Guest House. Last night Labour MP John Mann said: ‘It is another extraordinary development and it tallies with other allegations. This young boy died in terrible circumstances and his family deserve a full police inquiry.’

Can Mr Kasir help? In 2012, the Mirror reported:

The former owner of the B&B at the centre of VIP child abuse allegations plans to start a new life in America, according to the  Exaro investigative website  .

Haroon Kasir, known as Harry, ran the Elm Guest House in south-west London for four years from 1979 with wife Carole, who is now dead,  the Sunday People reports  .

According to Exaro, Kasir, 68, is making plans to raise £60,000 to emigrate to the US and has applied for a visa.

His 40-year-old son already lives in the state of Connecticut.

Last month  detectives raided Kasir’s home in Richmond , close to where the former guest house used to operate as a gay brothel.

And to today:

The late Geoffrey Dickens MP, it can now also be revealed, gave the then Home Secretary, Sir Leon Brittan, a dossier of the names of prominent figures involved in paedophilia in November 1983 as part of his campaign against the Paedophile Information Exchange, a contact group for gay men interested in sex with children.

Yesterday, as part of research for an Independent article about the Elm Guest House and this information, a journalist named Martin Hickman contacted Sir Leon Brittan to ask “what the dossier alleged and what action, if any, he took”. The former cabinet minister is quoted in response as simply saying: “I have no recollection of these matters. Sorry!”
