The Exeter connection: Clement Freud, Uri Geller, Jimmy Savile, Michael Jackson, Greville Janner (and Robert Murat?)

The article below has been sent to me by someone who used to be active in discussing the reported disappearance of Madeleine McCann, but no longer is. Whether it has any direct relevance to Madeleine’s disappearance is very doubtful, but it is certainly fascinating background material for anyone interested in the way serial paedophiles like Clement Freud, Jimmy Savile, Michael Jackson and Greville Janner seem to cosy up to one another.

Exeter is a University town in Devon and was one of the few places to vote ‘Remain’ in the E.U. Referendum.  

So far as the town of Exeter is concerned, several people connected with the Madeleine McCann case live in or near Exeter.

Let’s just list them:

1 Robert Murat’s two sisters live at Exeter (less than a mile from Jane Tanner) and Sidmouth and Murat flew out from Exeter airport to Faro at 7.00am on Tuesday 1 May 2007

2 Jane Tanner and her partner Dr Russell O’Brien moved to Exeter in 2007 and Jane Tanner is now a Web Marketing Officer with Exeter University. On the Exeter Universoty website, she self-describes herself as follows: “I maintain and develop the websites that represent the College of Social Sciences and International Studies. I work closely with the central CaMS team and the College ERICA team to create a consistent approach across all communications. I moved to Exeter and joined the University in 2007, following years of varied marketing roles for Fisher Scientific UK in the Midlands”

3 Jim Gorrod, Solicitor, employed by Ansteys and specialing in property law, and his wife Charlotte, live just two minutes’ walk away from Jane Tanner and Russell O’Brien. They were in Praia da Luz the same week as the McCanns. It is not known if the two families knew each other before 2007. Jim Gorrod was questioned by the PJ after he hired a blue or grey Corsa whilst he was in Praia da Luz and his wife was quoted as saying: “We know Dr O’Brien and Jane Tanner because we both have children of about the same age and we were staying in the same resort [the Ocean Club]”.

Plymouth is nearby, also in south Devon, and there are other Murat connections:

Des Taylor - the architect who designed the Murats' villa in Praia Da Luz, is from Plymouth.

Murat's aunt and uncle Sally and Ralph Eveleigh lived in Plymouth where I think at one time Sally Eveleigh worked for an adoption agency. She seemed to be into all kinds of weird and wonderful ‘alternative therapis’, one visitor to their Salsalito villa described it as a fantastic, wonderful, amazing retreat!! We thoroughly enjoyed the massage, crystal healing and relaxation,  Salsalito definitely has healing powers”, while the Eveleighs’ guest house at Casa Grande was advertised as follows: "We can also arrange for many different therapies, including Acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Massage, Bowen technique, Meditation and Yoga etc."


As the article below makes clear, both Clement Freud and Uri Geller had  strange Exeter connections:

4 In May 2002, Uri Geller bought a football club, Exeter F.C., currently in Division 2       

5 Geller’s friend, pop star Michael Jackson, also became a Director of Exeter F.C.  Geller’s son Danel also became a joint Vice-Chairman of Exeter F.C.

6 Uri Geller and Clement Freud jointly owned a racehorse

7 Uri Geller asked Michael Jackson to visit Exeter, to which Jackson allegedly replied: “I will come if you bring sick kids from hospitals”. He did visit Exeter later that year

8 Uri Geller and Greville Janner were close friends, and both were members  of the magiclans’ club, the Magic Circle

9 Michael Jackson’s visit to England was co-organised by serial paedophile Greville Janner.

10 Clement Freud was a close associate of Uri Geller. Both of course have Jewish ancestry

11 Another man closely connected to Uri Geller, Clement Freud and Michael Jackson is was Paul Boateng, now Lord Boateng, who spent time with Michael Jackson at the House of Commons on his 2002 trip.

Before reproducing the article below, there were claims that Uri Geller was an agent for the Israeli spy service Mossad and there were claims that Geller’s role included enticing people who were paedophiles and then blackmailing them. There is no evidence that I am aware of that Geller was a paedophile, but here is an article from the Independent, only last year (2015):


Uri Geller has insisted claims about his double life as a “psychic spy” for Israel’s intelligence agency are “absolutely true” - but he has vowed to take the secrets of his missions to his grave.

The television personality made a name for himself as a self-proclaimed psychic by bending spoons, other pieces of cutlery, various household implements and even a Blackberry phone. But in 2013, reports of a surprising double life as a Mossad and CIA agent emerged in a BBC documentary.

‘The Secret Life of Uri Gellar’ suggested his “paranormal” abilities were used by the US and Israel for over three decades, including during a bombing on an Iraqi nuclear facility and during a famous mission to release 100 hostages trapped in the Entebbe airport.

Geller, who is returning to live in his native Israel in October after 45 years living abroad, said a CIA doctor tested him “to see if I was real” after he rose to fame in the 1970s before flying him out of Israel.

When asked about the reports this week, he appeared to confirm them completely, telling Haaretz: “Everything in that BBC expose is absolutely true. The things I’ve done for Israel I don’t speak about. I never made money out of my secret work, and many projects, tasks and missions I was given will probably stay top secret until the day I die.”

A report from The Independent in July 2013 found Geller was also approached by British intelligence agencies in 2001 for a Ministry of Defence study into the use of psychic powers when searching for people or objects."


Spoonbender who took Michael Jackson to Exeter City is lining up Brazil for his next trick

Uri Geller claims he cannot work miracles but is adamant he can convince the world champions to come to Devon

  • By Brian Viner

  • Friday 30 August 2002


Uri Geller used to own, with Sir Clement Freud, a racehorse called Spoonbender. One presumes he was in the racing game to win but, all the same, it seemed a fittingly jocular foray into sporting ownership by a man best-known for bending spoons. Not too many people cared whether Spoonbender came first or last. Now, however, Geller has done something rather more serious. In May, as the most conspicuous member of a small syndicate, he bought a League football club, and with it, the hopes and dreams of a city.

On the field, Exeter City FC have not yet prospered under Geller's ownership. They make the long haul to Carlisle today having played five games this season, losing three. They languish, if languish is not too emotive a word this early in the campaign, near the bottom of the Third Division. But last Saturday they succumbed 4-3 to Kidderminster Harriers, having been 2-0 up. If nothing else, the Geller era has been entertaining.

Which should gain the approval of a club director who knows nothing of football but plenty about entertainment, the pop superstar Michael Jackson.

Those who doubt Geller's word that he dabbles in the paranormal should think again: what could be more paranormal than Michael Jackson becoming a director of Exeter City? The pair are friends; in 2001, when Geller and his wife Hanna renewed their wedding vows, Jackson was Best Man. And so when Geller became joint-chairman at Exeter, he asked Jackson to pay a visit to St James' Park.

"I called Michael. I said: 'Will you come?' He said: 'I will come if you bring sick kids from hospitals.' So we organised an event geared to raise money for the club and children with Aids, 50-50."

Having already disarmed me with his considerable charm, Geller now fixes me with his beady gaze. We are in the sitting-room of his mansion beside the Thames in Berkshire. He makes no particular secret of where he lives. Indeed, on a nearby thoroughfare there apparently used to be a warning sign, declaring "Bend In Road". To which some wag one day added: "Nice one, Uri".

Sitting with us, and butting in occasionally, is his affable son Daniel, who, at 21, is co-vice chairman of Exeter City.

"The tickets started selling like crazy," Geller continues, "but I took a major risk. I couldn't sign Michael on a contract promising he would show up, we are just friends. To physically get him to England, and then on a train from Paddington Station to Exeter, was difficult. But we did it, and now we have been in Sports Illustrated in America. Can you imagine, Exeter City in Sports Illustrated?"

No, I say, I can't. "We are going to name a stand after Michael. When I asked him to become a director, he said: 'Oh wow, do you realise I know nothing about sport?' I said: 'You don't have to'. Legally now we have to send all our financial statements to California." Geller smiles. "It is funny that we have to mail to Neverland."

It sure is, and the fun doesn't stop there. When the club's centenary comes along in two years' time, Geller fully intends to bring the world champions to St James' Park.

"I am working very hard at bringing Brazil here, and doors are opening for me. After all, if we could get Michael, why not Brazil? You know why Brazil? Because Exeter City toured South America in 1914, and the Brazilian national team was formed the month they were there.

"They wanted a foreign fixture, and Exeter were there, so they played a match. According to some reports it was 2-0, others say 3-3. Anyway, I have already spoken to the Brazilian ambassador, and sent a personal letter to Ronaldo. Everyone knows me in Brazil. Uri Geller [he is fond of using the third person] is very famous there. We are doing our best to make this happen. We want a new aura of internationalism at Exeter City."

The fans, meanwhile, would probably rather have a few points in the bag than a new aura of internationalism. To which end, the Exeter manager John Cornforth has been encouraged to bring in new players, among them footballers of some distinction, such as Don Goodman and Lee Sharpe, although the latter was released on Thursday. A concerted attempt was even made to sign Gazza. He was offered £6,000 a week and, above a certain attendance figure, a quarter-share of the gate receipts. Such manifest ambition can yield a play-off place, Geller insists.

But he is at pains to add that he is no miracle-worker. In fact he tells me several times that he cannot contrive miracles, before paradoxically explaining that during Euro '96 he willed the ball to move off the penalty spot just before Gary McAllister missed Scotland's penalty against England. Like all the best miracle-workers, he is more comfortable taking credit after the event than promising it beforehand. But I would hate to come over as too sceptical. Besides, his recollections of Euro '96 stand on their own; they require no comment.

"We were hovering over Wembley in a helicopter," he says, "and I was listening to the match in my headphones.

"I heard that Scotland had a penalty, and as McAllister put the ball down, I said: 'One, two, three, move!' I don't care how sceptical you are, but the ball moved away from his foot and he missed. It was Euro '96, there were dozens of cameras, you can check the footage. The ball definitely moved. So I want to believe that I moved the ball. The hate letters I got from Scotland..."

Let's get back to Exeter City, I interject. How in the world did an Israeli psychic, even one resident in the Home Counties, even one who watched his first game of football at the age of five (Hapoel Tel Aviv, he thinks), wind up buying a football club in Devon? This is where young Daniel comes in. "Seven years ago, while supporting Reading, Daniel started pinning up Exeter City posters on his wall. It was paranormal. He had no explanation for it, just said that he was passionately in love with Exeter."

Here, Daniel offers his own recollections. "It almost happened overnight," he says. "It was very bizarre. I was watching a goal highlights programme on TV, and saw Exeter City, and at that instant felt an attraction to this team, which developed into a passion for the place as well as the club. It felt like my spiritual home."

Looking fondly at his son, Geller takes up the tale. "So one day I said: 'OK, let's go and see a game'. We got to Exeter, and first went to see the cathedral, and the place where they hanged the first witches in England, and Daniel, who had never been to Exeter before, knew how to get to these places. I believe in reincarnation but still I was amazed."

To cut a fabulously weird story short, when the opportunity arose earlier this year to buy the club, the Gellers pounced. And the arrival of Michael Jackson, one famous June day, served early notice that remarkable things were in store. In what kind of condition, I wonder idly, is the cutlery in the club canteen?

Geller smiles. "You know, I met all the team, pulled out a spoon, and said to them: 'Now, I am going to bend a spoon for you. It is the only time you'll see it because I will never do it again for you. This is not about spoonbending. If ever I see you in the dressing-room it will be about motivation and inspiration. With all my powers I can't make you win, but I can make you feel more positive about yourselves, and more positive about the team'."

Surely, though, a mind that can bend metal can also repair torn hamstrings? Another smile. Hard as I try, I can venture no brand of scepticism that Geller has not heard a million times before.

"The first port of call should always be the club doctor. We should never abandon conventional medicine. But if someone can bring in spiritual help, motivational help... why not? Why shouldn't sportsmen search for that little more that psychology can give, that self-belief can give? Why do players cross themselves before a match? Because it is an added bonus. 'Hey, God is going to help me'. So many players carry a talisman, you would be shocked. I know one player who carries his wife's hairpin, and attaches it to his thigh with rubber bands.

"Now, I was asked [before the World Cup] to heal Beckham's foot. And I thought the best way was to show his foot on TV, and ask 10 million people to touch it, because I believe we are all connected by a spiritual thread.

"Shall I tell you what? About 9.9 million people did, and when Beckham was asked about it, he laughed and said: 'You know what? It healed'.

"Now, I don't claim to be a healer. I see hundreds of sick children. They come to the house, and I tell them I am not a miracle worker, not a healer, but I do believe in positive thinking. So, don't ever abandon conventional medicine, but a positive frame of mind speeds up the healing process."

According to Geller, lots of Premiership footballers have sought his guidance towards a positive frame of mind. Indeed, many of them have sat in the very chair I am now occupying. "I had a goalkeeper here, from a Premiership club. He had lost his confidence. I taught him how to visualise [success], a technique used for centuries. And it totally changed his outlook."

Enough sportsmen and women have plainly benefited at the hands of sports pyschologists teaching visualisation techniques that I have no reason to doubt him. Nor do I doubt that he is very good at it. But Geller can never quite resist treating one's credibility like he treats a spoon, bending it further and further until it seems certain to snap. The ending of Newcastle United's so-called London jinx, the team's improbably long run without winning in the capital, was, he casually adds, down to him.

"I believe in telepathy, in extra-sensory perception. There are sceptics who don't and that's fine, controversy is always good. Two separate sources asked me to break that jinx, and it's my opinion that you can unite 60,000 fans to project something positive. I went to Highbury, stood close to the dressing-room and concentrated, and that day Newcastle beat Arsenal."

Who asked him for his help? "I can't mention names. One was the local newspaper. The other I can't reveal, because you know what, there is a ridicule factor. I had Glenn Hoddle sitting right there and he denied it. He made me look like a liar.

"He came here with Eileen Drewery, while he was still England manager. They wanted to show me a healing system, and she did it, she put her hands on me. I was here, Daniel was here, my daughter, my wife, my brother-in-law, but in a press conference Glenn denied it. I mean, come on, if I wanted to invent a story about someone coming here I would invent it about the Queen, not Glenn Hoddle. But when that happened, when Hoddle made me look like a liar, I said I would never again reveal my sources."

Spoken like a true miracle-worker, even though, by his own admission, the joint-chairman of Exeter City isn't. He does bend and autograph a spoon for me before I leave, though. Uri Geller: The life and times

Uri Geller hypnotises Michael Jackson re child abuse allegations:


aangirfan blogged about this:


The powerful UK politician Paul Boateng is to be questioned by the UK's child sex abuse inquiry, led by chief Justice Lowell Goddard.

Apparently, back in 1998, the police wanted to speak to Paul Boateng about his alleged links to a child abuse ring and to John Carroll the boss of a ­children's home (child brothel) in London.

Retired Detective Inspector Clive Driscoll said he was taken off the case before he could approach Boateng.

One witness said that she saw Boateng at Carroll’s children's home (boy brothel) in Lambeth, South London, during the 1980s.

Another witness said that Boateng visited a camp for children in care, run by Carroll.

A third person, who worked in social services, said that Boateng contacted him after Carroll's bid to foster two boys was turned down.

Carroll was jailed for 10 years in 1999 for abusing children during the 80s and 90s.

While Tony Blair was Prime Minister, Paul Boateng was the government minister responsible for the police.

There is a belief that Boateng may know a lot about the child abuse rings that were allegedly used, worldwide, by the security services.


BBC News report:

So who killed Jill Dando? According to Uri Geller, it was a Serb hitman. I know this because about two days after her murder, I had lunch with Uri Geller for a project we wanted him to do. I wasn’t looking forward to it as I considered him to be a bit of a charlatan and found his spoon-bending schtick to be tiresome. However, I was surprised as he was quite fascinating. And did he like to talk.He also said he was convinced a Serbian hitman was responsible for Jill Dando’s death.”
