This blog mainly covers and archives some of the material surrounding the Hollie Greig case, and explores my own, properly researched position as a legitimate media professional who has spent over five years actually working to get to the truth of it... It's main purpose is to act as a public record of my position on the case. It's not a discussion forum, I'm not here to entertain or give the oxygen of publicity to nutters... You don't like them apples? - I don't care.

If you have relevant information to provide, email it! If you have something rational to say I'll read, consider and may even respond... Possibly directly, perhaps here through the blog.

On the other hand - If you're a headcase your email will be deleted by an office junior and your address blocked - I don't suffer fools at all. Abusive rubbish is passed straight to the Police.

Unlike others, this blog is not purposed to distract attention away from the Hollie Grieg case or obfuscate the issues surrounding child sexual abuse generally... Nor am I here to promote vapid conspiracy theories! - I'm not begging for cash, there is no mechanism for you to donate money to me. There are no books or DVDs you can buy from me on the Hollie Greig case... Or for that matter any similar case...

In short, your approval of me or what I write is of no relevance or interest to me... I don't require your attention, I don't want your money and I have nothing - except reality - to promote here.

My only interest is in the truth of the case, and that does seem to scare certain people - mainly criminals and perverts - out of their wits... What have they got to hide?

23. How many others?


There can be few greater joys in life for a man than to have his loving family about him… I counted my blessings as I sat last night in my living-room with my wife of 23 years, and our nineteen year old daughter contentedly watching television with the cat on her lap… A happy, healthy young woman who has grown up in a stable home with supportive parents that worked hard to keep her at a good school… As usual I ran her to her place at one of Scotland's top universities today. Hail and hearty; she's had a sheltered upbringing and I hope she never has to deal with many of the world's horrors. 


Mark McGivern has ascribed the names 'Karen' and 'Jenny' to Mitchell's victims – not their real names of course because as the victim of a sex crime they are of course entitled to lifelong anonymity… 

"Karen’s life is blighted by flashbacks to the abuse she endured and she has even attempted suicide." 

Heartbreaking!  Just heartbreaking…  And how many others?  'Respectable' Mitch Mitchell with his shiny new cars, frequent trips abroad, avid dog lover, keen canoeist, former serviceman… How many other lives and families has he wrecked?

What if I'd never caught on to Mitchell? - That could very easily have been my own daughter…  

There but for the grace of God!  And I'm thankful to him for causing me to pick up the signs surrounding Mitch Mitchell and sacking him from the RSL project when I did.  As Daily Record Journalist, Mark McGivern burrows into this case the horror just seems to get worse and worse…

And for the record (no pun intended) and in response to emails I've received today – Mark McGivern or anyone else with a legitimate interest in seeing to it that The Kirknewton Nonce and his Moll are exposed, is free to pick over the bones of the information I've 'put out there' without further reference to me…  I require no attention or acknowledgement.  – In fact obscurity is a very good place from which to carry out this type of work…

"Jenny was aged between eight and 11 when he volunteered to take her for swimming lessons and on drives in a country park between 1996 and 2000.


He also locked her in the bedroom of his former Army home in Kirknewton, West Lothian , where he undressed her and filmed her – as he did other victims – using advanced video equipment from his job as a cameraman."


Jenny, whose parents lived south of the Border but frequently visited the Mitchells, said she was disturbed to hear from other victims that her own abuse continued after the whistle was blown in 1998."


"'SHE [Gill Mitchell] didn't seem too surprised to hear he was a paedophile,' says the father, who is sure Hugh Mitchell's wife Gill knew about her husband's crimes."

No, I suspect she wasn't at all surprised…  

"The dad said: 'I knocked on the door and he let me in. He was downstairs and she was upstairs. I told him I knew what he had done and he admitted it.'

Then, the dad recalled, Gill Mitchell was drawn into the confrontation, with a reaction that horrified him. He said: “She came down the stairs saying, ‘Not the girls, please not the girls.’ I’ll never forget it."

Again… It can't possibly have been a surprise!  

Mitchell had after all previously lost his job at a West Lothian School because he was leching at the little girls there…  And I'm unsure whether this incident preceded my firing him from the West Lothian TV project in April or May of 1998, precisely because I had become upset and concerned by his behaviour…  So concerned that I had reported my suspicions to Lothian and Borders Police…

Did the Police ever pay him a visit I wonder?  And did Gill Mitchell also cover for him then? Is it possible the Police took the matter no further simply because the Mitchells presented a united - and apparently respectable - front?

" Karen said her father had come home and told the family about what happened at Mitchell’s house.

She said: “I was terrified because I thought he would kill him. He had trusted Mitchell with us and he just seemed like the perfect family friend.

“My dad came back and when he talked about it later he was very specific about what happened. He was very firm about Gill Mitchell coming down the stairs and saying, ‘Not the girls’.


“I found it the weirdest thing to say. I took it she half-expected to be hearing he was a pervert but she’d rather it hadn’t happened to girls she knew.


“All contact between my parents and the Mitchells ended. If Gill Mitchell was oblivious to what he had done, would she really have accepted that?'"

It's unfortunate, though perfectly understandable, that 'Karen's' father did not go to the Police. And I for one will tolerate no pervert-apologist trying to deflect and project guilt onto the man!  He took that decision to protect his daughters from the trauma of a trial; and I don't blame him.  After all, accounts exist where toddlers have been subjected to the cruellest of cross-examination by defence lawyers acting on behalf of perverts... 

But it is sickening that Gill Mitchell herself did not expose her web-footed (yes, really!) perverted freak of a spouse… 
 
"Not the girls, please not the girls." Gill bleated...

As if the gravity of this beast's crimes were in any way impacted by exactly which girls her inhuman monster of a husband had sated his vile wants upon!  - As I have pointed out previously, if I'd not caught onto Mitchell when I did my own daughter could very well have become one of his victims.  - What of the other girls in the village? Those of his neigbours? Those in the local park where was often to be seen walking his dogs

Karen 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."

I fear the young lady is right.  And I suspect many other victims of Hugh Mitchell are yet to emerge.  And on that basis I would plead with them to go to the Police now.  For each additional conviction should extend Mitchell's sentence; and ensure that he never breathes to cool clean air of freedom again.

There must be a God…  And I'm thankful to him for causing me to pick up the signs surrounding Mitch Mitchell when I did.  But I remain angry…

Angry at Lothian and Borders Police for apparently doing nothing with the information I passed to them…


Angry at the school he worked in for sweeping his perversion under the carpet…


And Angry at Gill Mitchell MBE… Not, by any measure any kind of "victim" in this…


As a resident of the same village in which Mitchell carried out his horrendous crimes I can tell you that his wife still struts around the place as if she owns it... Walking her dogs without a care in the world, and her MBE no doubt tucked safely away to remind her of what a 'special' lady she is...  A neck of pure brass!

An affront to the girls her husband was convicted of abusing, and an affront to the victims that are no-doubt still to come forward, whom the snotty cow would appear to imagine are lesser beings not worthy of her concern... 

What's to be done? What can be done?

YOU, personally, today, - no matter where you live in the UK can do something real to take a stand against establishment-endorsed child abuse in your country....   
YOU can do it quietly and modestly and without seeking attention…

YOU can lodge a formal complaint as to the conduct of Mrs Gillian Barbara Mitchell MBE of Churchill Way Kirknewton, EH27 8AW - Pointing out that her conduct in shielding her paedophile husband disgraces the honours system, and asking that she be stripped of her MBE.

Please consider what I have written here.  – And please do consider writing to the Honours Forfeiture Committee at:

It IS far better to do these things by post - preferably recorded delivery -for you are entitled to a response, and having to respond to a number of individual letters will tend to catch their eye...  But you may also lodge your complaints by Email to:

22. The men who cry "wolf".

Apparently, the convicted drugs-offender, who is deemed by the law to present such a moral danger to his own offspring that he is banned from seeing them, still imagines my agenda is the same as his... To gain attention and celebrity and/or deflect from matters affecting my own circumstances. He is wrong.

It is now some weeks since I drew attention to the matter of Hugh Mitchell, former colleague and a sex abuser; suspicions about which I first voiced to the police back in 1998. Once I became aware the police were finally making a move, it became necessary to butt-out completely and let them get on with the job. Only after he pled guilty in the 25th of September 2015 was it legally possible to comment on the case, due to the fact that it was, until then, 'active'.
 
Loudmouth, self-proclaimed paedophillia 'expert' Malcolm Konrad Ogilvy,  seems to spend every waking hour combing the internet for stories about child abuse.  And is always sure to re-post material; especially when he can use it to further his own sectarian-politico ends.  But, when the case of ex-army intelligence officer and Mason Hugh Mitchell was published Ogilvy fell unusually silent on the matter! And when he was eventually embarassed into publishing an account of this shocking case (which I think will eventually emerge as arguably one of Scotland's worst paedophillia cases) it was one which sought to deflect from his Masonic brother Mitchell's location and his wife - Gill Mitchell MBE's - part in shielding him. 

For clarity I've been told by several individuals locally that they too had ensured Ogilvy was made aware of the case...  Some being quite persistent. There's no serious doubt he knew all about it...

The mainstream media was also not-surprisingly 'coy' about to conviction of this well-connected pervert. Almost a month after Mitchell's conviction - when he was sentenced - we were served up a version of the truth by outlets such as the BBC which, like Ogilvy's tripe, really rather served to distort the reality of the case...  Unacceptably, tacitly promoting the myth that Gill Mitchell MBE was some sort of heroine who had precipitated the conviction of her paedophile husband. - When in fact the very opposite is true.

It's now over a week since Mark McGivern was called out - publically in published comments to his report on Mitchell's sentencing - on his silence on the matter of Gill Mitchell's part in protecting the Kirknewton Nonce. And some time since, in my original piece, I raised complaint about the 'kid gloves' treatment Mitchell's case was receiving in the mainstream press...

To his credit, McGivern took the hint, picked up the baton and ran with it...  And is the first reporter with a national newspaper to do so. 

And, again for clarity, had he asked me to comment (he didn't - a fact about which I am untroubled) I would have insisted in anonymity. - You see it matters not to me who picks this or any other child abuse case up, so long as the truth emerges and justice is served... I don't need the money, I don't seek the attention and I have nothing to sell... I'm in a position where I don't have have to worry about where my next job is coming from; unlike many of my colleagues - I've no fleas biting my back...

More importantly, and unlike the shill Ogilvy, I don't have matters in my background I might seek to deflect attention from...  Such as a long,criminal history of drug abuse or court orders set to protect children against what amounts, by any reasonable measure, to sexual abuse!

I simply want to see the scum - and its apologists - brought to book. - It's just THAT simple. And I care not how long it takes, or how much it costs me either.

Ogilvy also attacks the website, Victims Against Hoaxes which seems to have focussed on debunking the 'McKenzie-Gerrish group' scams which have done so much damage to genuine grass-roots resistance to establishment-endorsed paedophillia.   

Whilst I certainly do not agree with their assessment of the Hollie Greig case as a fabrication in its entirety (in fact I judge this conclusion as suspicious as the hoax that washed the grain of truth away) - I believe it is entirely reasonable to question the 'boys who cry wolf'. But  VAH seems to be defunct, and something of a flash in the pan anyway.  - Why does Ogilvy feel so 'threatened' by it?  

Of course, towards the point where it 'ran out of steam', VAH contributed much to debunking and discrediting the 'master scammer' Belinda McKenzie; infamous MI5 Landlady and pay-mistress to many a sideshow act; including the hapless Robert Green.  VAH has also - quite righly - tilted at the slick, leading establishment-shill and con-artist Brian Gerrish; and of course their various and numerous sidekicks...

VAH poses (for instance) the question: "where was Belinda, Sabine, Gerrish and Poulton when a real cover up happened"?  - And an entirely reasonable question that is too; one that would offer no 'threat' to anyone but for the fact it promised to bring the whole circus tent down...  Ogilvy emerges here as a clown flapping about under the collapsed canvas!

Similarly, where are the Ickes, McKenzies and Gerrishes of this world on the Mitchell case?
  • Ex-Military Intelligence;
  • Boasted of his Masonic links;
  • Boasted of his political 'connections';
  • Boasted of being 'flameproof';
  • His wife - who covered for him - inexplicably 'honoured' by the establisment;
  • Sacked from a school job in the mid-90s for letching at little girls;
  • Reported to the Police in 1998 - apparently not investigated;
  • Confronted in the same year by an angry Father.
A 'classic' case of an establishment-minion who for at least around two-decades was one of those 'special', 'protected people' that no ordinary copper could touch.  His wife 'specially rewarded' for 'special services'... And when he was finally gaoled, the establishment press start working to water down the flames and contain the smoke...

Odd that none of the 'great campaigners' were on his case, and odd that they're not drilling in to investigate those clear - easily checked - establishment connections to see where they might lead...  Who was Mitch Mitchell writing his 'dirty books' and making his paedo-porn videos for? -  Who was distributing them? Who was buying them?  

I find it interesting that the 'big dogs' of the conspiracy circuit seem completely disinterested in this case and others like it... 

Those who work hard to propogate the myth the grass-roots concern over paedophillia in our communities is just the ranting of conspiracy theorists and 'mad people'...  How well the fruits of their labour serve the Dan Foggos, Eilish Angiolinis and Anne Widdicombes of this world. How much safer they make the world for sexual predators such as Hugh Mitchell.  How much easier they make it to ignore the concerns of the public.

It's hard to see how abuse victims are in any way "helped" by making it more likely those raising the alarm about predators in our midst are taken less seriously...   And it's hard to see how being one of the voices raised in at least three now proven and convicted cases 'doesn't help' victims.

It's hard to see how the grifters and con-artists who have sought to add to their own fat coffers through exploiting tragic cases such as Hollie Greig's help anyone but themselves... 

Of those who the courts have found 'wanting'; and seek to distort and deflect from the fact that they themselves are evidenced as child abusers, drug addicts and otherwise the lowest form of criminal scum that walks the earth... It's hard to see how genuine victims are helped by low-life sewage like them trying to wiggle off the hook; or otherwise trying to sate themselves by projecting the sad, unproductive consequences of failure that define themselves, onto others...

Taking a stand against child abuse requires action... And by that I don't mean weaving a collection of unfounded tripe into grotesque meld where "Fifty Shades of Grey" meets "Harry Potter".  It's not about the 'glory' or the 'fame'... It's not a Spoonbill Generator style game... Not about being a hero to a few siloed nutjobs and grifters...  


It's about lighting the blue touchpaper that sees another pervert put where they belong. Then withdrawing into the darkness to prepare one's next match... Seeking no attention or glory nor even credit; it should be enough to do the right thing.

Buntin, Dickson, Ogilvy, Willis... Another web-footed 'musical' member of the Mitchell clan... and several others who know who they are...  Pack your stinking bags, put your affairs in order, wait for the knock. Your cell is currently being prepared.
