Currency Lad – The Rise and Fall of George Pell Tracey Spicer, #MeToo and The ‘Victim’ Cult

Following the triumphs of Brett Kavanaugh, Geoffrey Rush, Kevin Spacey, John Jarrett and Cristiano Ronaldo over fake ‘victims,’ the biggest hoax of all ends in disgrace for police and leftist politicians – and likely prison time for the ‘victim.’

‘Victim culture’ has ruined reputations and police must route it out to stop more innocents being branded sex abusers, a former prosecution chief said today.

Lord MacDonald slammed a tendency to automatically believe accusers, branding the approach ‘absolute rubbish’.

He believes that this treats complainants as victims without any evidence and that this is what led to the ‘madness’ of the VIP sex ring probe Carl Beech’s false allegations sparked.

The peer says that law enforcement is ‘blinkered’ due to an out-of-control ‘fad’ that causes miscarriages of justice, the Evening Standard reports, as he slammed the leadership of ex-Met Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.

It comes after 51-year-old Beech invented claims of sex abuse that led the Metropolitan Police to spend £2.5million investigating fake child murders, rape and torture that the fraud said were committed by Westminster politicians.

Backers of the probe included Labour’s deputy leader Tom Watson, who faced calls to resign yesterday when Beech was convicted of perverting the course of justice and fraud.

Police must end ‘victim culture’ to prevent more reputations being ruined by false claims following ‘madness’ of VIP sex ring probe, ex-top prosecutor Lord MacDonald says.

    ‘Victim culture’ encouraged by MSM. How many real victims will now be ignored? And because of police bias, Kathy was not treated as a victim.

  2. Up The Workers!

    George Pell ought to sue for $100 million in damages.

    You can do a lot of charitable works with that much in the kitty.

    Just make sure that the Party guilty for the “Get Pell Squad’s” Guilty verdict 12 months before a single highly dubious complaint was laid and his political show-trial and vilification took place, are the ones whose pockets are opened – and not the innocent taxpayers.

    And yet Australia’s most notorious non-consensual horizontal-jogger at Geelong Youth Camps, is still yet to be charged by Ashton’s Circus due to the corrupt influence of certain low Party friends in high Party places.

  3. This is forever the failing of the Left, they take things too far and ultimately it comes to bite them in the arse. The Left simply has no sense of proportion or self-awareness when it comes to just about any of their causes.

  4. Gab

    I long for the days when hard evidence was the gold standard in our judicial system. These dangerous times, accusations from one person about an alleged incident that occurred decades ago, is now deemed sufficient evidencefir a conviction of guilt. Unless of course you are Labor politician.

  5. Up The Workers!

    Much in our current Mogadishu-by-the-Yarra Injustice System could be improved if a high-pressure, industrial strength enema were to be applied to flush out all the political appointees in the D.P.P.’s Office, Police Headquarters and the Spring Street sewer.

    Lord MacDonald slammed a tendency to automatically believe accusers

    With notable exceptions:

    Rotherham –

    The Rotherham child grooming gang scandal, described as “the biggest child protection scandal in UK history”, was exposed in 2010 after five Pakistani Muslim men were jailed for sexual offences against underage girls following Operation Central. Subsequent operations and trials led to a further 20 convictions.

    In total, there were more than 1,400 victims in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013.

    Rochdale –

    Nine men, again, of Pakistani Muslim origin, were convicted in 2012 of rape and sex trafficking with 47 girls being identified as victims of the Greater Manchester grooming gang.

    By spring 2017, all but two rapists had been released and four were using taxpayers’ money to fight deportation to Pakistan.

    Oxford –

    In 2013, seven men (five Pakistani and two African) were convicted with five receiving “life” sentences and two sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment.

    Some 370 white girls from deprived backgrounds or abusive homes, generally aged 12 to 15 years old, were systematically raped, drugged, and threatened. The gang operated in Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, over a span of 15 years.

    One victim told Breitbart London that girls in the city are still being targetted because police refuse to act. Some of her own attackers still work as taxi drivers, businessmen, and are even on the local council, she said……………………..

    Telford –

    Police in Telford were accused of ignoring child sex abuse after it emerged volunteers had been passing evidence of grooming to them for three years………………………

    May be of the subject or may be not:
    According to veteran psychiatrist Dr. Lyle Rossiter, leftists thrive on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions. “A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do”. “And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.” Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by: Creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization: Satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation: Augmenting primitive feelings of envy: Rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government: “The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says. “When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.

    This will have no bearing on the situation for Cardinal Pell. It is obvious that he has been falsely tried and convicted but that is of no consequence to the leftist establishment and their media, who will continue with the false public narrative. The ABC reigns supreme and Cardinal Pell is a political prisoner.

    Lord MacDonald slammed a tendency to automatically believe accusers, branding the approach ‘absolute rubbish’.

    The problem is that’s not a mere tendency, it’s a policy.

    And I doubt whether many of our morally feeble politicians have the fortitude to take on the feminist lobby over it.

  10. Mother Lode

    Lord MacDonald slammed a tendency to automatically believe accusers

    With notable exceptions:

    Victimhood of the Religion of Pieces, fortified by the original sin of whitey (i.e. being white and therefore complicit in all evil), introduces a spurious element. Like not being able to pick out a match being lit in the midst of a bushfire.

    Take that away and plain victim dynamics dominate.

    Fantastic Lies: A Great Documentary on the Duke Lacrosse Scandal

    The scandal called forth an army of outraged liberals, all ready to condemn a bunch of jocks who had poor judgment and a love of beer and raunchy parties.
    It was a battle of moral losers. Sorry, but that’s what it was: liberal journalists, liberal college administrators, a corrupt District Attorney, white jocks who liked black strippers, a corrupt cop, and Jesse Jackson.
    Incredibly, Al Sharpton did not get involved. This was totally unexpected.
    The journalists forgot the most fundamental principle of English common law: the assumption of innocence. In their insatiable rush to judgment as guilt-ridden whites, they condemned dozens of intelligent, athletically skilled young men who did their thinking with their little heads, as young men have done from the beginning.
    Basically, it is the story of two ultra low-lifes who combined their efforts to produce a miscarriage of justice: a black whore and a white one. The white one was was the District Attorney. The black one was mentally unstable. They were a team. They almost won. If the three primary defendants’ parents had been middle class, the whores would have won.
    They were all teams: journalists, cops, media hounds, leftist student protesters, administrators, outraged faculty members, defense lawyers, and players.
    There was only one clear moral winner: the coach of the lacrosse team. He forfeited his career on behalf of his team, and his was a great career. He was the one adult who stood in the gap and said: “This is wrong.”
    The documentary is a work of art. It begins with the liberal media. It tells the story as the liberal media told it. Then, about 20 minutes in, it begins to talk about the District Attorney. The story subtly begins to shift.
    This is the story of the triumph of not-quite justice. It cost three families fortunes to defend their sons.

    SBS news (!) ran a report on this last night (albeit just after the 7pm ‘fold’ when they know everyone turns off). It is gobsmacking. They play actual police interview video of this fat POS giving a laughably bad performance as a ‘victim’, telling ludicrous stories, and then some Scotland Yard idiot insisting this same fat POS is ‘credible’. Yeah, remind me: who else was recently described as ‘credible’?

    Trouble is, we’ve been here before. Britain in the 1980s went through one of these waves of hysteria, with a self-appointed female witchfinder-general who claimed to have discovered a clinical test that infallibly proved a child had been sexually interfered with. I won’t describe the test, but it makes the antics of voodoo shamans look like laser-guided brain surgery. Inevitably, lurid tales of satanic rituals (it’s always the satanic rituals) were ‘remembered’ and innocent lives were destroyed. This hag was eventually debunked but nobody learns anything, and here we are again.

    Good question.
    He’s in jail – a real jail, not a remand centre – until the judges make up their minds.

    I understand that they need to do a thorough job, but every day’s delay is another day Pell will never get back.

    I have no doubt Pell’s accuser will eventually be revealed as a fraud.

    Ivan Denisovich @ 11.27…. the much maligned British National Party was banging on about the “grooming” of white girls long before the msm and the lady police officer,whistle blower, became aware of the problem but of course no one took any notice as they were Raaaaacist.
    While the BNP may well be that however they were found to be correct in their accusations,not that anyone gives them any credit for that.

    I tend to agree but the damage will have been done……a good man’s reputation will have been utterly destroyed….and what journalist will be brave enough to try and expose Pell’s accuser?

    Re. the British travesty….it was heart wrenching watching the news last night and seeing Harvey Proctor on television….here was a former conservative MP, a homosexual, a man who had been completely and utterly smeared and lied about by Beech, the police and Tom Watson. Because of these lies, because of a politicised, PC and corrupted police force, because of liars and utter scumbags like Labour MP Tom Watson who decided to use lies and fabrications go after any one on the political right…..Proctor lost his job and home. Even with financial compensation…you never, ever get over something like this. And guess what….the slime bag Watson is now trying to make himself out to be a victim of Beech…..it is beyond parody.

    As John Jarratt said two weeks ago…after the verdict that cleared him..NO MAN should have to go through what he went through.

    And I ask you….where is the justice for the liars like Dick Tracey? She started a fire……and yet she gets away with the arson.

  22. Oh come on

    The carnage Jimmy Savile wrought after his death is astounding. How many lives have been broken as a result of being Yewtreed?

  23. notafan

    These allegations all have a familiar ring

    Billy in the notorious US case

    Fiona Barnett is the Australian version of ‘nick’

    pizza gate

    vague stories of anon dead/tortured children

    multiple unrelated prominent figures (often not mentioned in first allegations)

    another example is the child care cases of the 80s

    the modern various of witch trials

    in the meantime precious resource are diverted from real cases with identified victims (actual child pron etc)

  24. Oh come on

    With reference to Saville … actually he was never charged

    There is virtually no doubt that Savile was a serial child sex predator who operated with near-impunity for decades. The police’s inability to detect and prosecute him for his crimes has got to be one of the greatest law enforcement failures of all time. Yewtree was always more an effort to restore public confidence in law enforcement than it was about delivering justice. The operation created a moral panic which allowed it to trample all over the standard parameters in place that ensure a fair investigation.

  25. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    Fiona Barnett is

    Stark raving mad.

    As for other nonsense like “Sybil” as a “coping mechanism” and “repressed memories”:

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/au/blog/think-well/201112/why-did-or-mpd-is-bogus-diagnosis

    Briefly, MPD or DID involves several features, chief of which is the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states, each with its own enduring pattern of thinking, perceiving and relating. In the vast majority of these cases, there is a reported history of extreme anxiety, usually stemming from traumatic abuse or neglect.

    Even the famous case of “Sybil,” whose bizarre odyssey through the labyrinth of “MPD” sold millions of books and led to an Emmy winning TV miniseries, has been exposed as a total hoax and a complete fraud. (See Debbie Nathan’s new book: “Sybil Exposed: The Extraordinary Story Behind the Famous Multiple Personality Case,” which draws on a cache of letters at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice that reveals how three women (all now dead) created what they called “Sybil Inc.” for fun, fame and profit. It worked pretty well, right?

  26. Geriatric Mayfly

    Inevitably, lurid tales of satanic rituals (it’s always the satanic rituals) were ‘remembered’ and innocent lives were destroyed.

    I seem to recall that Bea Campbell (ex MP) one of Philip Adams’s communist besties, was caught up in this. Bea was a great fan of the East German gulag, but rocked up to the Palace nevertheless to receive an honour.

    I understand that they need to do a thorough job, but every day’s delay is another day Pell will never get back.

    Tim, it is much worse than another day he won’t get back.
    How about it is 145 days since conviction and in jail.
    And 237 days to get an appeal decision – and yes I know the first 92 day delay was for that other trial that collapsed. But does that really matter from his point of view.
    .

    11 Dec 2018 – conviction date
    ……….. 92 days (delay while other trial collapses)
    13 Mar 2019 – sentencing
    ……….. 85 days (not sure why it would take so long to prepare for an appeal)
    6 Jun 2019 – appeal concluded
    ……….. 60 days (judges deliberating on what? certainly not expediting)
    5 Aug 19 – appeal decision (wild guess)

    Unfortunately, I think being a criminal trial there is no comeback unless the prosecution was deliberately vindictive or preventably incompetent.
    Otherwise just “not enough evidence to convict” as the saying goes.

  28. Herodotus

    Victoria’s selection process for judicial appointment and the tendency for (i) christian preachers to be railroaded (ii) Andre Bolt to be railroaded, and (ii) Cardinal George to be convicted – makes you wonder.

    Certainly it was.
    But the sexual assault of children (by other, ideological means) is now becoming normalised, thanks again to the left. At some future point, there will be Mutilation Hearings and class action law suits for the children butchered in the name of ‘gender fluidity.’ These people – the proponents of the aforementioned travesty – are worse than Stalin, morally. They are evil monsters.

    Given that many of them are medicos, perhaps “worse than Mengele” might be more appropriate?

    We can only hope. Cutting a boys dick off is far worse than raping him.

    Indeed.

  34. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    I agree with much of the above. Pell should be free. He is merely a pawn. The correct response is to cut off the Catholic Church from all privelege, all access to children and all school funding. We know from the evidence of a great many that this organisation was criminal is its management of persistent and prolonged abuse of kids.
    Personally, I would argue that no school should be run by religious organisation. Certainly not with public funding. Definitely not when the scale of abuse is so great.

  35. a reader

    The geriatric troll is back I see. #rolleyes

    This might be a free article from behind The Times Paywall:

    Tom Watson Regrest trusting Abuse Fantasist

    The “share” token probably only works for a limited number of clicks.

    The execrable Tom Watson is only just starting to backpedal.

    Some choice bits:

    Mr Watson met the prolific liar in 2014. In a January 2015 newspaper article the MP repeated phrases used by Beech in an email making false allegations against Lord Brittan of Spennithorne, who was home secretary under Margaret Thatcher.

    Mr Watson wrote in the Sunday Mirror: “One survivor said to me that Brittan ‘showed me no kindness or warmth’. That Brittan was ‘as close to evil as a human being could get in my view’.” The article was published four days after Lord Brittan died from cancer, and his widow and daughters found it extremely distressing.

    The former Conservative MP Harvey Proctor, another of those falsely accused by Beech, said that Mr Watson should reveal to a select committee the extent of his contact with Beech.

    Mr Proctor said: “Tom Watson says he is in favour of transparency so let the home affairs select committee see logs of his phone calls, his email correspondence, his letters and any and every contact he had with Carl Beech.”

    The former cabinet secretary Lord Armstrong of Ilminster said that Mr Watson had “exceeded his brief by a good deal” in the case. Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, QC, a former director of public prosecutions, says in a letter to The Times today that “politicians should never use criminal justice, still less particular investigations, as a way of inserting themselves into a news cycle”.

    No matter how grievous the wrong you think you are righting with “believe the victim” , this kind of appalling injustice is inevitable when you dispense with the presumption of innocence.

    The College of Policing said that the case showed the need to move away from a policy of always believing the victim to emphasising that detectives must keep “an open mind”.

    Where is anything from Vicpol that is even remotely equivalent to this statement from UK College of Policing?

    Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Is a disgusting, slandering old sack of shit. Bigoted to boot as well.

    Outside of immediate blood relations, the safest place for your kids is – actually any Catholic institution.

    The Catholic church has the best record of any public or private institution. It has the best record of any church.

    They are the facts. They don’t care about your feelings you old bigoted liar.

    The abuse rate in public institutions is far, far worse BTW.

    Let’s summarise the recent witch hunt against Catholics:

    Lunatic Vivian Weller acccused Pell of being an accessory to a sexual assault when he was no present in Australia.
    Archbishop Wilson found guilty on circumstantial evidence for an offence that is hardly ever prosecuted, which was repealed under the liberal enlightment, then quashed on appeal.
    A priest in regional NSW was acquitted after the NSW DPP tried him for historic sexual assault, on a date he could prove he was in another Pacific Island nation, with evidence from his passport records (why was this even brought to trial?)
    Pell was tried with evidence which was out of context (a phone tap) and a witness who perjured himself during the committal (that accuser/witness should be tried for fraud and perverting the course of justice, along with perjury and the Pell matter should have been smote on the spot, noelle prosqueri).

  39. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Frank: on the tiles again?
    Take a look at the actual evidence of the RC, the actual response of the Catholic Church and the actual evidence obtained in similar terms in the US and elsewhere.
    The nature of the abuse over time, the organised cover up and deception, the failure to act, the failure to meet common obligations and duties of care and the refusal to engage with legal inquiry.
    A tip Frank: get off the tiles. It’s not good for you.

  40. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    Take a look at the actual evidence of the RC, the actual response of the Catholic Church and the actual evidence obtained in similar terms in the US and elsewhere.

    Lies.

    You’re not posting any evidence because you don’t have any, White Trash.

    You’re the kind of idiot who would have defended Vivian Waller until C.L. called Waller out for such outrageous false accusations.

  41. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Frank: you really are a hard case. If you bother to acquire any actual knowledge you would know how much evidence there is.
    I can only assume that you are party to the crimes.

  42. EWMFS;
    Your reply to Frank Walker – which goes really close to being actionable, is typical of the bullshit Lefty comment we get here.

  43. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Winston: in the olden days we used to think protecting kids from predators was a conservative posture. I still think it is. I am becoming convinced that what I thought was a site for conservatives is in fact a haven for cranks.
    What I said is not even vaguely actionable. The fact that you suggest it and that Frank yells abuse tells me that your response to matters you don’t like or opinions that don’t suit your fashion is to abuse or threaten people and shut down opinion.
    Get a grip.

  44. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    I know Winston. I shouldn’t have to take this bullshit.

    I get called this because I showed three or so malicious prosecutions that turned out to be fake, or had the accusers lying in court.

    Pointing out that the accused COULD PROVE THEY WERE NOT EVEN IN THE COUNTRY AT THE TIME OF THE ALLEGED OFFENCE is complicity in child abuse is it, dickhead?

    You will never post here again, White Trash.

    Facts do not care about your feelings.

    Let’s clear some things up.

    1. The safest institution for children is actually the Catholic church.

    2. The public sector abuses kids way more, as do the ALP.

    3. The Catholic church is the best behaved of any church.

    Seems I struck a nerve whilst showing terrible lies about falsely accused high profile Catholics and otherwise clerics.

    That is all.

  56. Old Lefty

    Notice the deafening silence from ABC-Fairfax and the political left about the Beech case? What a surprise.

    Notice also the reporting so minimal as to be invisible about the Victorian Education Department’s serial offenders Robert Morris and Vincent Reynolds, for whom whom the state system covered up for decades? Or the lack of coverage of similar findings 20 years ago by Justice Wood in NSW? Will the old man from Skipton also be campaigning to shut down state education? At the risk of repeating myself, the failure of McClellan’s sham of a Royal Commission to investigate state schools was a scandal.

  57. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    OL: Nope. Because the taxpayers can hold ministers accountable when govt schools fail. The religious schools covered up systemic abuse – in fact they hid the abusers inside the system – over decades. That was itself a criminal act. So far they have chosen to change nothing in their schools to rectify that absence of governance. Rather, they have denied and covered up right to the bitter end.
    There is absolutely no way any taxpayer money should be given to any school that is not directly accountable to the elected Parliament.

  58. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    The religious schools covered up systemic abuse

    No, they did not, because there was no “systemic abuse”, you disgusting liar.

    You’re nothing more than a ratbag like Titus Oates or Alexander Hislop.

  59. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Oh yes there was! There is absolutely no doubt of that.

  60. Frank Walker from National Tiles

    No. You are saying that there is a plan, conspiracy or predilection to abuse.

    You could not be more wrong or bigoted.

  61. Elderly White Man From Skipton

    Frank: when the perps keep getting put back in charge of kids, time after time, and the parents get told to shut up, time after time, ad nauseum, then why is that not a system? The organisation knew that multiple complaints were made about its agents and ignored them. They literally covered it all up, for decades.
    It is a system and one you promote.
