Maddie - Ian Brady (The Sun)

Post by Karen Pinto on Sun 30 Jun - 7:53
MOORS murderer Ian Brady ridiculed the hunt for missing Madeleine McCann in hate-filled letters penned from his high-security psychiatric hospital.

The child killer, 75, branded support for missing Madeleine as “hypocritical hype”.

He also claimed James Bulger’s killers Jon Venables and Robert Thompson should never have been locked up for their crime.

In the letters to a pen pal, Brady also:

SUPPORTED the 7/7 attacks on London and praised suicide bombers for having “admirable commitment”;

BEGGED for more terror attacks on the UK, including a nuclear assault to wipe out central London, and;

BRAGGED he had stopped Hollywood heavyweights from cashing in on his case — but moaned HE had not made any money from his notoriety.

The sickening rants are revealed just days after he lost his bid to be moved from high-security Ashworth Hospital on Merseyside to a Scottish prison.

A tribunal ruled on Friday that he is still mentally ill, scuppering his plan to starve himself to death.

He is currently force-fed once a day through a nasal tube.

Brady tortured and murdered five children in the 1960s with his girlfriend Myra Hindley.

Since the tribunal’s ruling, it has emerged in letters that he may have killed four more people — three men and one woman.

Last night Brady’s mental health advocate, Jackie Powell, who visited him after the ruling, said he is now determined to end his life in whatever way he can.

Jackie, 50, has known Brady for 14 years and in an exclusive interview with The Sun on Sunday she said: “Ian has told me that his only desire now is to exit this world in the quickest way possible.

“They have got him on what amounts to a suicide watch. He is under surveillance 24 hours a day.

“I have no sympathy for Ian over the crimes he committed but I am concerned for him as a client.

“There is a real danger that he could try to hang himself or commit suicide in some other way.”

Brady’s prison letters clearly demonstrate his twisted outlook on life.

Madeleine McCann was just three when she disappeared while on holiday with her family in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May 2007.

Brady was appalled at the scale of the search for Maddie and wrote: “The girl who disappeared in Portugal is another instance of hypocritical hype — the Pope, minute’s silence, endless coverage — all the things not devoted to the 650,000 killed in Iraq and those still dying by the score daily in its US/UK-created ruins.”

Brady also used his letters to attack campaigners who had tried to keep the killers of James Bulger behind bars.

Thompson and Venables were ten when they murdered the toddler near Liverpool in 1993. They were freed on licence with new identities in 2001.

Hinting that the pair should not have gone to jail in the first place, Brady wrote: “The Bulger fiasco? Indicates the prehistoric mentality of the UK rabble re two ten-year-olds being freed after eight years.

“In Europe they would not have been locked up at all. The UK is the ar*ehole of Europe.”

In another astonishing outburst, he wrote: “The lynch mob after the Bulger Two. Conditioned, sanctimonious morons, acting from guilt complex from what they themselves committed when they were ten years old. There are more killers and thieves running society than you’ll find in all prisons combined.”

As Brady casually discussed terrorist atrocities with his pen pal, he revealed he was praying the UK suffered an attack far worse than 9/11.

In one letter, written before suicide bombers struck in London, he wrote: “This filthy little country hasn’t even been attacked yet — but I sincerely hope it now is.

“The bigger the attack the better, with Whitehall the main target.

“A plague is about the only way to clean out the parasitic collection of political and bureaucratic filth. Or a nuclear device.

“I’m glad I’ve lived to see an enemy prepared to die for something other than their bank balance and pensions.”

In another, he wrote: “I’m waiting for the retaliation strikes against the West and hope England is included.

“There are whole armies of suicide bombers eager to strike at the West after centuries of exploitation.

“They’re even being trained to die at schools. Admirable commitment.

“I wish matters would speed up. A strike on the West is overdue.

“The UK has always been a backward s***hole of over-taxed serfs.”

He was delighted when bombers struck on UK soil for the first time in 2005, killing 52 people on the London transport network.

The child killer wrote: “Fifty-two dead in London, as a result of the belated and justified retaliation for Iraq, is described as a barbaric atrocity. While 125,000 slaughtered by hi-tech equipment in the ruins of Iraq is presented as ‘liberation’.

“The UK media is still whining about the London bombs.”

Brady’s letters also prove he revels in the notoriety afforded by the horrific torture and murder of Pauline Reade, 16, John Kilbride, 12, Keith Bennett, 12, Lesley Ann Downey, ten, and Edward Evans, 17, in the 1960s.

He boasts about the number of books and films based on the case — but moans about not making any money himself from it. And he even claims a Hollywood director was willing to PAY him to make a movie based on his life.

He wrote: “There have been more than 30 books on my case; five plays (one German); a London musical; a comic; some playing cards (US/Canada).

“So that leaves very little to exploit.

“I’ve only bothered to read the books they intended to make films from, in order to take legal action to stop them, which I’ve succeeded in doing three times.

“The first attempt was by the American Broadcasting Corporation, with William Friedkin as director (he did The Exorcist and The French Connection — five Oscars), the second attempt was to star Gary Oldman and Meryl Streep, the third attempt was to star Gary Kemp, who played Ronnie Kray in a film.

“In case you’re wondering, I get nothing from all the commercial exploitations — I’m public property.

“But with the Friedkin film attempt, all I had to do was name a price and sign a release contract. I did neither. So unlike all the above, I’ve never made a penny from the case.”

Mental health advocate Jackie isn’t surprised by the shocking content of Brady’s letters.

She said: “Over the years Ian has written tens of thousands of letters. He gets a lot of mail.

“He will have arguments with people and strike up debating positions. Many people write to him and state arguments to him to prompt him to write in this way.

“Ian has always indulged in playing mind games with people.

“He regards his life like a game of chess where he cannot move the pieces himself, so he prods and prompts other people to do it for him.”

After last week’s tribunal — which cost taxpayers £250,000 — Brady told Jackie: “The evidence given by Ashworth was a rag-bag of prison rumour and irrelevant ancient history. I was expecting the result to be negative.

“It was the result of deliberate and calculated collusion by the self-serving and bloated bureaucracy that runs this warehouse for feeble-minded cretins.”

But Brady also revealed he may NOT appeal the decision, with the process taking its toll on his health.

Jackie said: “Ian looks sallow and waxy. At times he looks like a walking corpse.

“His health has deteriorated in the last year. He has multiple conditions including failing eyesight and spondylitis, which causes chronic back pain.

“He told me that he is starting to think that fighting the decision would be a waste of his time and effort. At the moment he seems to have lost his fight.”
