If you read this article in the Daily Mail from December last year, you will see in action the Esther Rantzen that we all know and love – the champion of abused and vulnerable children. You cannot help but admire the dedication and energy that she has committed over many years to provide defenceless children with somewhere to go for real help and genuine compassion.
So when, at the beginning of this year, I realised that there were dreadful cases of child abuse and child stealing by the State coming to light that had to be confronted and addressed by decent, law-abiding citizens, I immediately thought that the person to head up our quest for the truth should be, without hesitation, Esther Rantzen. If anyone could challenge the establishment to get to the truth, it would be her, I thought.
In February of this year, when the dreadful case of Hollie Greig became more widely known through the articles of Brian Gerrish and his UK Column team, I took it upon myself to ring the campaign headquarters of Esther’s General Election campaign to become the next MP for Luton South. I was politely listened to and my message was relayed to Esther about Hollie. After two more attempts by phone to see if it was possible to speak to Esther, I was eventually successful, but her message to me was not encouraging. She said that she had had many calls and emails from people asking her to take an interest in this case and that some of them had been abusive in tone. She said that she was fully committed to her General Election campaign but would look again at this case after polling day. The result on the day must have come as a personal shock to her– I certainly expected her to do much better ( See here… )
In April, again through the excellent work of the UK Column, I became aware of the case of Isle of Wight resident Cheryl Stannard and her ten year old daughter ( see here )
This together with research by the UK Column, Bill Maloney, David Icke and many others, it would appear that the Isle of Wight is yet another centre for the State sponsored abuse of children and families. Once again, I believed Esther Rantzen should take a high profile lead to find out the truth and now that the General Election was over, I felt confident that she would agree to get involved. Unknown to me, Cheryl had already approached her, but, as you will see from the following emails, to no avail. I took up the cudgels later on, but I too, as you will see from my emails to Esther, got nowhere.
If I’m honest, I feel terribly let down by Esther’s apparent indifference to both these terrible cases especially as researchers know that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The more and more we look at how the establishment works we see clear evidence that rogue elements in the judiciary, the legal profession, the police and social services are networking to commit and allow unspeakable crimes against innocent children and are breaking up happy and loving families by organising the State-snatching of their children. Unbelieveable but the evidence says otherwise! So why doesn’t Esther, a caring and loving person, with a wonderful track record, want to get involved? is she afraid of something? What does she know?
What I know is that for the first time ever, we have a national network of committed and decent people who will not stop until the truth, the real truth, is exposed…….and, hopefully, with Esther leading from the front.
Please read the emails below and see if you can understand Esther’s indifference and apparent unwillingness to get involved. Please note that because of Cheryls ongoing battle in the Courts to get her daughter back, some content from the emails has had to be removed. In most cases, the sentences removed add to the urgency of the request for Esther’s assistance. Thank you for reading this – updates will be given as events unfold.

Thank you so much for your call on Sunday, as it did lift my spirits. [My daughter] has phoned on Childline. She has tried to use the message board on the website but is having difficulties with it not allowing her. I have emailed Superintendent Mellors yesterday and asked him to chase DCI Dawson – professional investigations team for me, as I have left messages and do not have her email or phone number. I want to find out why [my daughter] was left to the mercy of a family court judge in 2007 when the police and social services told me that they believed her and to stop contact. . They were aware of previous judgements and said this was a separate allegation and would be treating it seriously. However, a couple of days later both SS and Police abandoned us. [My daughter] has the right to have her voice heard in the appropriate court as she alleges crimes have been committed against her……….. ……………………………………………….. [My daughter] has written her own statement which the police have along with my letter below……………………………………………
I have no solicitor that has funding to take the case on in the IOW. The majority of the equity in our home has been used to fund court hearings.
Kind regards Cheryl

Dear Esther (and Abi),
Sorry to bother you again but I am so worried for us. Social Services ………has set the case conference meeting up again for next Monday am and I am also due back at Portsmouth County Court on Monday afternoon and still without representation. I have asked the Child Law Partnership to help and am waiting to hear back but not hopeful. Judge advised I was having difficulty because it was a national problem where solicitors are poorly paid and this was a complex case. I have emailed ……………the Child Abuse Investigations Unit in Netley asking for his promised feedback of couple of weeks ago. No response as yet. I sent medical data showing my daughter has had …………………………………[medical] conditions from 2002 – sept/oct 2009. The only period without these conditions was when contact ceased/supervised. [My daughter] has had no further conditions since contact stopped in Nov/Dec 09. I also highlighted how Social Services and …………..expert witness do not report accurately/minimise and comment out of their field of expertise on the severity of Oct 2003 condition of [my daughter].
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..My fear is that she will be removed from my care on Monday if not before…………………………… Finally, NYAS advocate……………offered to meet with [my daughter] but she is refusing, [my daughter] is so angry and hurt by professionals not helping or believing her that the only person she will fully trust is you/Childline and I. ………………………………
Kindest regards Cheryl

Esther wanted me to let you know that it wasn’t the best plan to try and meet up over the Easter weekend. Her family has decided to descend upon her and she won’t be able to get away to meet with you. She would however like to arrange a meeting in Lymington after the Easter period, so I will be in touch with some suggestions shortly.

Urgent response required today please Dear Esther, [My daughter] and I are very disappointed that we have not heard from despite the assurances of your PA and given [my daughter’s] plight. She is currently in care in Gibralter with no advocate, no solicitor working on her behalf and no one from your offices. She has raised concerns with me regarding social services coming to take her back to the UK relayed by Gib Social Worker – Paul.
She ……………………….my daughter has also refused asking for her Nanny instead. Nanny is willing to assist. But they refused her request. [My daughter] is being emotionally harmed from not being with me, from not have her wishes and feelings acted upon and not informing her of her human rights and of what they intend to do with her in the UK as she believes she will be returned to me soon and denied access to her pet dog. I would like to know your position in our matter today in writing via this email address as I do not believe you wish to act in the interests of [my daughter]. I do hope this is not the case, but I have to insist upon your response today as [my daughter] believed your emails to meet with her and that you genuinely wanted to help her.

This situation for [my daughter] is so sad and I will not stop until I have her back in my arms. I have called Suzie a few days ago and I know friends have emailed you with their concerns over [my daughter’s] plight and asked you to help but you have not responded to them. Will you please state whether or not you are helping or prepared to help her. She is not allowed to speak to me let alone see me. This is against her human rights and you could stop this if you chose to as the Chair Person for CHILDLINE. Pease act now for [my daughter].
From: jrgwalker To: esther Sent: Fri, 13 Aug 2010 18:35 Subject: Cheryl and [her daughter] Stannard
This is not easy for me to write but please bare with me. I am going to be honest with you and say how I feel about how things have turned out for Cheryl Stannard and her daughter. Not only have they been forcibly separated by a highly questionable court action in Gibraltar but Cheryl has now also been charged by the Hampshire police with abducting her own daughter. [Her daughter] is desperate to get back to her loving mother and quite definitely does not want to be with …………………… What is going on here? Cheryl and [her daughter] are clearly the victims, with [her daughter] especially so after her dreadful experiences with paedophiles.
Now it goes without saying that you have a tremendous reputation for helping abused children and your Childline initiative has been universally applauded. But I have to say that I’m very disappointed by these emails below sent to me by Cheryl which seem to show a consistent failure on your part to meet with Cheryl and [her daughter] and to explore the possibility of offering them both practical support and much needed help in their hour of need. How else am I to interpret them?
This poor mother is desperate for your advice and support and yet it would appear that you have turned your back on her. I’m sorry, but that’s how it looks to me after reading them - if I’m wrong please put me right. And please remember that both Brian Gerrish and myself have been in touch with you about this case and neither of us received back any indication that you were prepared to get involved. The evidence would appear to be overwhelming that [Cheryl’s daughter] is the victim of a dreadful injustice by the establishment on the Isle of Wight and this awful case demands to be heard in an open court of law in front of a jury of honest and decent people.
Instead, Cheryl faces the trumped up charge of abducting her own daughter, whilst the future of her daughter is decided upon in a private Family Court session where secrecy is prevalent. This is clearly outrageous and must be tackled head on. As with the dreadful Hollie Greig case (which, again, I’m afraid to say, our pleas for your involvement came to nought), it is clear that organised paedophilia within the higher echelons of our society is not only prevalent but is in a position where it can actually pervert the very course of justice.
This is clearly a dreadful state of affairs and this evil must be exposed without delay, with the perpetrators brought to justice under Common Law. The situation is so bad that one informed researcher into child abuse even has his suspicions that Childline itself is actually being used by rogue elements from within to identify vulnerable children so that paedophiles will know where to prey. I really hope that he is completely wrong here….please allay my fears that there is absolutely no truth to this possibility.
Even though I feel very disappointed by your lack of action so far towards Cheryl and [her daughter], I am still hopeful that you will now meet with Cheryl and her team of advisors in the immediate future. I look forward very much to hearing from you,
With best wishes

It pains me to write this but the fact that you have refused to take action or even acknowledge my numerous polite emails and telephone calls to you about Cheryl Stannard and her daughter (as well as Hollie and Anne Greig), I feel I am now compelled to take the appropriate actions to alert the general public about your apparent indifference towards these horrific cases of child abuse by trusted servants of the State. With the establishment of Childline, you have made yourself the public champion of abused and vulnerable children. How will people react when they read this series of emails? Why are you going out of your way to avoid talking to the campaign teams helping [Cheryl’s daughter] and Hollie?
Are you afraid of something? Has somebody got to you to keep your silence? And are there rogue elements within the well known children’s charities using them to identify weak and vulnerable children for future abuse by paedophiles? These are very serious questions that must be asked in view of your strange and inexplicable lack of support. I know that I have direct access to half a dozen global websites which means that millions of people in a very short space of time will become aware of your lack of support for these two high profile child abuse cases. As a mark of respect, I will give you until midnight on Friday 1st October to make contact with us – failure to do so will mean that I have a public duty to make these emails public so that people can make their own minds up.
