Elton John: ‘I’ll be there for the people of Ukraine’


According to Ken Lennox, who was senior photographer at the then Robert Maxwell-owned Daily Mirror, guests at one of Elton John’s birthday parties included Ghislaine Maxwell and her father.

The year of the birthday party is not stated and indeed the year in which Elton John first met the Maxwells is unknown. Nevertheless, the facts do seem to confirm that the three have been at least mutually acquainted.

In 1987, Elton John and Robert Maxwell had an agreement whereby Mr. John agreed to sell his shares in Watford Football Club to Mr. Maxwell. The deal ultimately fell through.

In 1984, Robert Maxwell chaired an NSPCC Media Committee, and the same charity would later attract the interest of Elton John, who supported the NSPCC ‘Full Stop’ campaign.

The ‘Full Stop’ milieu included Peter Mandelson, Prince Andrew, Richard Branson, Jemma Kidd, Lady Victoria Hervey, Allegra Hicks, Naomi Campbell and Flavio Briatore, as well as Ghislaine herself, who was photographed attending an NSPCC fundraiser in 2004.

Elton John and Robert Maxwell also used the same lawyer at different times: George Carman QC.

At other times Carman advised Greville Janner and Jimmy Savile.

In an unproven allegation wholly denied by Elton John’s lawyers, teenager Stephen Hardy (‘Graham X’) told The Sun newspaper that he had supplied Elton John and Billy Gaff (the former manager of Rod Stewart) with 10 teenage boys for an alleged sexual abuse and cocaine party that he claimed took place at Gaff's home in Finchampstead in 1986.

The Metropolitan Police responded by saying that the force was ready to interview Graham X, and asked that The Sun supply them with his identity or that Graham X contact them. The Sun's then legal manager, Henry Douglas, indicated that the newspaper would probably make Graham X's statements available to detectives. Whether or not this happened is unknown.

Separately, a client of the late Surrey-based psychiatrist, Dr Joan Coleman, stated to the psychiatrist that Elton John’s details appeared on a list of financial contributors to a group allegedly involved in crimes extending to sexual abuse and worse. Dr. Coleman’s published case notes and the allegations documented therein have not been tested in a courtroom: rather, they reflect wholly unproven allegations and Mr. John is innocent of any crime until and unless proven otherwise. The alleged list was reportedly on a laptop owned by Hambro's Mark Davis.

Separately, an unnamed 19-year-old complainant told The Sun that, in the early 1980s, Elton John and a man understood to be John's then-partner, Vance Buck, had raped him as an underage youth after plying him with cocaine. The alleged incident reportedly took place in Elton's home (‘Woodside’j near Windsor Castle.

The problem with allegations made to the press instead of to police and lacking in much or any corroborating evidence, is that they are very difficult to prove or disprove. Elton John is properly assumed to be innocent because he never been charged with, much less found guilty of, any sex crime.

William Hague "is living at Leon Brittan's house", reported The Times on January 10 1989. Leon Brittan was the subject of a string of credible child sexual abuse allegations involving young boys: including that he committed sex crimes at the Elm Guest House de facto ‘child brothel’ in Barnes. The press also reported, in 1995, that Hague and Brittan remained close friends and enjoyed hill-walking together.

Hague’s PPS in 1996-1997 was Nigel Evans MP. A total of 7 young men alleged that Evans had either sexually assaulted, indecently assaulted, or, in one case, raped them. Hague and John Bercow leapt to Evans' defence. Subsequently Evans joined forces with Sir Cliff Richard and Paul Gambaccini to try to change the law to protect the anonymity of those accused of rape and sexual assault.

In 1996, Hague appointed Leon Brittan's friend Ronald Waterhouse to lead an inquiry into the North Wales child abuse scandal. Published in 2000, survivors viewed the report as a whitewash. In the same period, Hague could sometimes be seen at the gym at Dolphin Square in Pimlico "tumbling about topless" with Sebastian Coe, according to a report in The Independent. Indeed, Hague at one time lived in Dolphin Square. This apartment complex was the venue for alleged VIP child sexual abuse 'parties' involving MPs, peers, councilmen, lobbyists, and officials: most of whom were said to be drawn from the ranks of the Conservative party.

From 1999 onwards Hague was an active supporter of the NSPCC’s ‘Full Stop’ campaign alongside many friends and patrons of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein. Lord Hague’s wife, Ffion, was a non-executive director at The Outward Bound Trust alongside Ghislaine’s benefactor Lady Lynn de Rothschild (an earlier non-executive director was Sir Jimmy Savile).

Lord Norman Lamont is a former Rothschild employee and director who, like Hague, was close friends with Leon Brittan. Lamont’s Parliamentary Private Secretaries have included William Hague; Esther Rantzen’s colleague Peter Wanless; and Jocelyn Cadbury, who in common with Leon Brittan, reportedly visited the Elm Guest House de facto ‘child brother’.

Hague says that he became a member of Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) when he was 15 years old. The association would prove to be a fruitful one. For, according to The Guardian: “William Hague allegedly accepted personal donations from CFI board members totalling tens of thousands of pounds …”
