The Hanukkah Hoax and Hatred for Christmas

The Hanukkah Hoax and Hatred for Christmas

Michael Hoffman — Revisionist Review Dec 2016


Christmas is a problematic time for Orthodox rabbis and their followers since it celebrates the birth of the Jesus they despise. The rabbinic term for Christmas Eve is Nittel Nacht, a night they regard as accursed.

There is a rabbinic tradition of refraining from marital relations on Christmas Eve (Nitei Gavriel Minhagei Nittel 5:1). According to Rabbi Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidic Judaism, to conceive a child on Christmas Eve will result in the birth of either an apostate or a pimp (Sefer Baal Shem Tov Vol. 2:43a).

The most prominent rabbinic custom commonly observed on Christmas Eve is to abstain from studying the “Torah” (i.e. Talmud). There is an anxiety that one’s Talmudic study may unwillingly serve as merit for Jesus’ soul, corresponding to the rabbinic teaching that studying the Talmud gives respite to the souls of all the wicked.

Refraining from Talmud study on Christmas Eve also serves as a sign of mourning, corresponding to the rabbinic belief that Jesus “was a false messiah who deceived Israel, worshipped a brick, practiced the magic he learned in Egypt” (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 107b); and “was born of a harlot who conceived while she was niddah (menstruating)” (Babylonian Talmud, Kallah 51a).

There is a Talmudic custom of eating garlic on Christmas Eve. The reason for this is attributed to the odor of the garlic, which is reputed to repel the demonic soul of Jesus, which is supposed to wander on Christmas Eve (cf. Nitei Gavriel Minhagei Nittel).

Another rabbinic custom in Orthodox Judaism is to make toilet paper on Christmas Eve as an insult to Jesus, a practice made popular among Hasidic Judaics by the Chiddushei Harim (cf. Reiach Hasade 1:17).

Contrast these grostesque “Nittel Nacht” mockeries with the heavenly story of the Holy Family in Bethlehem: the radiant Virgin and Christ child, humble shepherds, and angels offering glad tidings of peace on earth to men of good will. Frankly, there is no comparison between Talmudic Judaism and true Christianity, and those who attempt to assert that Christianity has ecumenical similarities with the religion of the Talmud are more deluded than the degraded practitioners of Nittel Nacht themselves.

This year Christmas Eve falls on a Saturday which is also Hanukkah. Pray for the Talmudists engaged in their hate-filled anti-Christian bigotry, which the corporate media will not report or expose.

Rabbinic Hanukkah: A man-made tradition of self-worship

Hanukkah is a Talmudic holiday that is a burlesque of the Biblical account of the Maccabees. Hanukkah is celebrated  cursorily  in  the  Israeli state and observed in the United States as competition for Christmas, in order to symbolically assert the supremacy of Klal Yisroel (the Judaic people) over the rest of humanity. The secret of Hanukkah was disclosed by Rabbi Levi Isaac ben Meir of Berdichev (renowned as “the Kedushat Levi” after his eponymous treatise), a prominent eighteenth century halachic(legal) authority. Rabbi Meir revealed a secret known only to a few: that lighting the Hanukkah menorah does not commemorate the victory of the Biblical Maccabees.

The arcane traditional doctrine of Chazal (i.e. the “sages” of the Talmud) concerning Hanukkah is that it commemorates God’s “delight in the Jewish people” themselves, and their vainglorious celebrations. The secret teaching of Hanukkah is that God supposedly provided a mythical eight days of oil not as a means of facilitating a victory, or of guaranteeing the successful completion of a sacred duty, but rather as a sign (halacha osah mitzvah), of His continuing adoration of the Judaic people, which all the rest of us are supposed to emulate, as we do indeed whenever a menorah is erected where a Nativity scene is banned.

Hanukkah is Talmudism’s principal means for pushing the religion of the Talmud into the civic life of our nation in December, at a time when Christianity and its symbols, such as Nativity scenes, are increasingly marginalized or banned completely from the public square, in favor of menorah lightings, “Sanny Claws” and the collective jingle of cash registers. The lower Jesus, Mary and Joseph are made to descend during the Christmas season, the higher the Menorah and the Judaic self-worship it represents rises.

The Hanukkah menorah is not a symbol of a Biblical occurrence.

Hanukkah is a man-made Talmudic tradition intended for self-idolatry. It represents the victory not of the Maccabees over the pagans, but of the selective memory of the rabbis over history. Hanukkah is an enduring commitment to the dark racial and religious conceit of the rabbinic Zionists, disguised as holiday light and cheer for all, and as such it is a kind of abbreviation for and summation of the strange god of self-adulation which is the central idol of the votaries of Orthodox Judaism, and the central violation of the First Commandment of Exodus 20:3: לא יהיה־לך אלהים אחרים על־פני.

Christians are the true sons and daughters of Abraham who celebrate in the publicsquare our gratitude to Jesus, the Messiah of Israel and Sovereign of all Creation. Rejoice! “For unto you is a born a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”

Charlie Brooker on Cameron and #piggate

Charlie Brooker on Cameron and #piggate: ‘I’d have been screaming it into traffic if I’d known’

“The first question people were asking me was, Did I know anything about it? And the answer is no, absolutely not. I probably wouldn’t have bothered writing an episode of a fictional comedy-drama if I’d known. I’d have been running around screaming it into traffic. It’s a complete coincidence, albeit a quite bizarre one.”

To fill you in: four years ago, Charlie Brooker’s dystopian TV series Black Mirror began with an episode called the National Anthem, in which the prime minister of Britain – to hoots of derision on social media – is required to have sex with a pig on television in order to ransom a kidnapped princess. On Monday, the Daily Mail printed extracts from Lord Ashcroft’s biography of David Cameron, in which Ashcroft claims to have been told by a current MP that Britain’s real prime minister allegedly “inserted a private part of his anatomy” into the mouth of a dead pig during an initiation ceremony while he was studying at Oxford. The MP knows someone with photographic evidence, according to Ashcroft, but he does not supply any.

For Cameron, whether or not the allegation is true (Downing Street have refused to comment), it must be unspeakably embarrassing. For Brooker, it is just deeply, deeply weird. Indeed, when the story broke, and his phone went crazy, he was just sitting down to work on another dystopian script idea. “I did genuinely for a moment wonder if reality was a simulation, whether it exists only to trick me. Which isn’t meant to sound narcissistic,” he says. “It’s just a bit of a worry.”

According to Brooker, the real origins of his pig storyline are the media frenzy that followed Gordon Brown’s “bigot” remarks in 2010, and an edition of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers comic, in which, as he remembers it, a police chief is required to have sex with a hog. The comic itself may have picked the idea up from what seems to be a standard piece of political wisdom, attributed by Hunter S Thompson to Lyndon Johnson, in which a politician smears a rival by falsely “calling him a pig-fucker” in order to “make the sonofabitch deny it”.

While developing Black Mirror at Channel 4, Brooker remembers exploring alternatives to pigs. “We thought all through the farmyard,” he says. “At one point we were thinking of a giant wheel of cheese. Then we came back to the pig … You needed something that straddles the line between comic and horrifying. ”

Even so, Brooker has quite a record of at least seeming to be clairvoyant. Nathan Barley, the sitcom he made with Chris Morris in 2005, now looks like a straight-faced preview of iPhones, selfies, YouTube and hipsters. Just a week ago, G Clay Whittaker made similar claims of prophecy for various Black Mirror episodes in the Daily Beast – with the exception of the pig episode. “I’m not going to compare any political event to this,” he wrote, wrongly, it now seems.

For his part, Brooker says that he never seeks to make predictions in his scripts, even if he ends up doing so. What makes this case so strange however, is that he actually tried to do the opposite in the National Anthem – to think up, as he puts it, “an absurd and ridiculous notion”. Today, he insists he actually feels quite sorry for Cameron. “In the episode itself,” he says, “it’s worth pointing out that it doesn’t actually damage the prime minister in the long run.” At least Downing Street’s communications team can cling on to that.

Cameron faces fresh questions over knowledge of Ashcroft tax status

Billionaire Tory donor alleges Cameron conspired to mislead public before 2010 election over knowledge of Ashcroft’s non-dom status

David Cameron is facing fresh questions from Labour and the SNP over allegations by the former Conservative deputy chairman Lord Ashcroft that the prime minister conspired to mislead the public before the 2010 election about his knowledge of Ashcroft’s non-dom tax status.

Ashcroft, a billionaire businessman, Tory donor and former key Cameron ally, has said he is not seeking to settle old scores, but also claimed in a long-awaited unofficial biography that Cameron took drugs at Oxford University and was involved in an initiation ceremony involving mock sex with a dead pig.

In the preface to his book Ashcroft asserts he discussed his tax status with Cameron in 2009 in detail. He writes that Cameron was “fully aware of of my status as a so-called non dom. Indeed we had a conversation about how we could delay revealing my tax arrangements until after the election.”

But in March 2010 when Ashcroft confirmed his tax status shortly before a freedom of information disclosure which would have shone light on his affairs, Cameron claimed to have known about it for only for a month. A non-dom does not have to pay tax on overseas earnings in the UK, and Ashcroft had promised William Hague in 2000 as part of his receipt of a peerage that he would take up “permanent residence in the UK”.

The question about Cameron’s knowledge of Ashcroft’s tax status came after Downing Street was forced to deny the most lurid allegation in the book. No 10 sources denied that Cameron had been involved in any initiation ceremonies at university, saying he had not been a member of the decadent Piers Gaveston club where the initiation ceremony allegedly took place.

Earlier, the prime minister’s spokeswoman said she would not dignify the book with a comment, and pointed to the fact Ashcroft had himself said he was motivated by anger at Cameron’s refusal to honour an undertaking to give him a high-profile ministerial job in the wake of the 2010 election.

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s shadow minister without portfolio, called on Cameron to clarify his knowledge of Ashcroft’s tax status and whether he had agreed with Ashcroft effectively to mislead the British public ahead of the 2010 election.

He said: “Amidst the furore around Lord Ashcroft’s new book there lies a serious question mark over the consistency of the prime minister’s statements about the peer’s tax status.

“Lord Ashcroft stated today that he made the prime minister fully aware of his non-domiciled status in 2009. However, in March 2010, when his status was made public, David Cameron said the full details were ‘only’ known by Lord Ashcroft and the Inland Revenue. Furthermore, his spokesperson confirmed that David Cameron was only made aware of the peer’s status the previous month.”

The SNP leader, Nicola Sturgeon, told Channel 4 News: “If I can perhaps make him feel better, he’s entertained the whole country on a dreary Monday morning, so there’s got to be something in that.

“Actually though, there is one thing – put aside all the lewd and salacious allegations that I have no knowledge of the truth or otherwise of them – but there was one serious allegation this morning that I think perhaps he does have to answer and that was about the fact allegedly he knew about Lord Ashcroft’s non-dom status much earlier than he admitted to knowing about it, so that’s one that perhaps shouldn’t just be allowed to disappear into the ether with some of the more lewd ones.”

On 2 March 2010 Cameron said: “Clearly the full details of Lord Ashcroft’s tax status are something that is between him and the Inland Revenue and those full details are only known by him and the Inland Revenue and that is as it should be for him as for anyone else.”

Cameron’s spokesman at the time said later that the prime minister had only found out about Ashcroft’s status in February 2010. His current spokeswoman refused to comment on Cameron’s knowledge in 2009-10.

Ashcroft himself gives no details of the date he informed Cameron in 2009. Ashcroft also asserts Cameron only offered him a post as junior whip in the Foreign Office despite ploughing £8m into the coffers of the Conservative party. He described the offer as “declinable”, and was subsequently told by Cameron that his appointment had been vetoed by Nick Clegg. The former deputy prime minister said he had no recollection of trying to block Ashcroft.

In the book, co-written by the journalist Isabel Oakeshott, a university friend of Cameron’s said they had smoked cannabis occasionally while listening to Supertramp as part of a group called the Flam club.

James Delingpole, now a rightwing journalist, told the authors he took the drug with Cameron and another friend at his room at Christ Church college, Oxford. “My drug of choice was weed, and I smoked weed with Dave,” he reportedly said.

MPs criticise Dispatches/Telegraph ‘sting’ as Straw and Rifkind cleared of misconduct – Politics live

Rolling coverage of all the day’s political developments as they happen

11.36am BST

Here is a statement from Kevin Barron, the Labour MP who chairs the Commons standards committee, about the standards report. (See 11.19am.)

The committee has not hesitated to take action in the past when a media investigation has revealed the rules have been broken. The debate about whether or not MPs should have outside interests is a legitimate subject for media scrutiny, but the rules currently permit it provided that these are registered in the register of members’ financial interests, and the lobbying rules are not breached. Everything Jack Straw and Malcolm Rifkind said about their earnings was already published on line in the register of members interests. What was said in the interviews should have been reported accurately and measured against the rules of the House Jack Straw and Sir Malcolm Rifkind were presumed guilty…

Jeremy Corbyn and I are the new Christs

Jeremy Corbyn addresses a rally in Chelmsford last week
Jeremy Corbyn: Words shorn of context, check; beard, check; wool underpants, check… Photograph: Justin Tallis/AFP/Getty Images

Apparently, the Labour party leadership contest frontrunner, Jeremy Corbyn, wants to dredge the decomposing corpse of Osama bin Laden from the seabed and then marry it.

And he wants to live with the dead body of Bin Laden in Islington, as if it were his gay-zombie husband, in a sick leftwing pantomime of the heterosexual Christian wedding ceremony. And this arrangement is also a perversion of Islam, which is of course a peaceful religion.

It was Monday morning. I logged off from the Daily Mail website. I only went on the damn thing to check whether migrants were currently a swarm of vermin, or decent loving parents like you or I, or if leggy Israeli model Bar Refaeli would take the plunge in a tiny wraparound oriental miniskirt, and then I got bogged down in all this Corbyn necrophilia stuff. It’s all so confusing.

Later, after I’d dropped the kids at school, I saw the cover of the Daily Express in a newsagent and read that Corbyn had also said it was a tragedy that he and Bin Laden had not met during the latter’s unfairly curtailed life, as Corbyn was sure that after they had become lovers, they would have sponsored a sloth at London zoo.

I raised my eyebrow at the newsagent, a bearded Islamic man in long flowing robes with an inscrutable expression of fundamentalist certainty. But he said that whatever people did behind closed doors was up to them, as long as the sloth had given its consent and was not harmed.

Later, I attended a local radical artists’ and writers’ meeting in the last squatted tower block in Tower Hamlets. We were trying to decide how best to respond creatively to the political implications of austerity, and whether there was a place in our empty gesture for puppetry and dance.

Turning to sip my tea, I looked out of the window to see Tim Farron of the Liberal Democrats fly by in a hang glider, with a picture of Jeremy Corbyn kissing Bin Laden printed on its outstretched wings.

Farron’s pained democratic face suggested either constipation, sexualised religious ecstasy, the vain hope that someone would remember that he existed, or some fair and just proportional representation of all three positions.

But a cat by the Museum of Childhood merely looked briefly up from burying its excrement on the lawn, as the desperate Cumbrian wafted himself westward toward Wapping.

The artists and I screwed up our agenda and discussed what we had seen. Of course, these days, rather than being reliant on squinting at the speeding news through the shit-smeared windscreen of newspapers, as it flashes by in full Doppler effect, we all agreed that we can use newfangled internet technology to seek out and then freeze-frame the source of the supposed story.

“Had Corbyn really said the death of Bin Laden was a ‘tragedy?’” asked a painter. “Not really,” offered a young woman tapping at an iPhone. It appeared the veteran leftwinger had used those words, but as part of a forward moving collection of sentences, which contextualised them in the way that sentences in a supporting argument do, in order to lament the lack of due process in Bin Laden’s killing, which Corbyn believed, rightly or wrongly, had ongoing global implications.

Anyone familiar with human language, such as a baby, a dolphin, or a cleverer than average dog, would have experienced such a syntactical procedure before, perhaps involving nouns and verbs and various qualifying phrases.

Only by decontextualising these words entirely were the Mail, the Express, the Telegraph and the actual genuine leader of the Liberal Democrats, Tim Farron, able to misrepresent Corbyn so absurdly.

The digitally enhanced, bionic GM news flies past us with such high velocity that within 24 hours the surface of the Corbyn teacup was again millpond still. Only occasionally did the becalmed Fairtrade brew in the chipped Corbyn mug begin to ripple once more, as Tony Blair’s impotent ape footsteps pounded counter-productively on the tea tray around it.

Incoherently outraged, and yet in possession of a megaphone, the wounded and once powerful monkey god lashed out this way and that in a doomed quest for meaning. Or bananas. It’s so difficult to tell since the creature no longer has Alastair Campbell to interpret for him. “We don’t do bananas.”

Like Jeremy Corbyn, I too have experienced the agony of decontextualisation. A DVD of a 2009 standup routine, in which I used depictions of violence against TV motoring journalists as a way of questioning their own right to operate outside accepted taste boundaries, ended with a direct, down the lens, plea to Mail journalists not to decontextualise the images within the 50-minute bit in order to misrepresent me.

But, brilliantly, this did not stop the Daily Mail’s Jan Moir doing exactly that. Moir’s article was swiftly withdrawn from the paper’s website presumably when it became clear that my patented Jan Moir trap, baited with the stinking cheese of assumed outrage, had worked like a dream.

But apart from me, and Jeremy Corbyn, there was another man, wasn’t there, long long ago, whose wise words were often shorn of context by stupid fools, and used against him. And perhaps that man had a beard, and maybe he wore sandals too. And perhaps he too came to lead his lost followers away from false idols towards the promised land.

And this lowly man, would he have gone among the people in fine Raja Daswani shirts like Tony Blair? No, he would have dressed like me, in an XXL T-shirt he got free from an indie band; or like Jeremy Corbyn, in a pair of itchy alpaca wool underpants knitted for him by his mother, as a gesture of solidarity with the Sandinistas. And with all the oppressed peoples of the Earth.

I’m not saying, by the way, that Corbyn and I are the new Christs. But I don’t have any say in what headlines the subeditors and page layout people choose to put on these pieces. I hope that “new Christs” bit isn’t the attention-grabbing phrase that the Observer elects to pull out of this column.

Nobody on Twitter or Comment Is Free reads to the end of the pieces they are complaining about. And a headline like “Jeremy Corbyn And I Are The New Christs” will only serve to convince the Conservative content-provider Tim Montgomerie that Guardian newspapers have finally lost the plot, and send Baron Daniel Finkelstein, OBE, into a tail-chasing tailspin of baronic confusion. What’s the point?

But in such moments of despair I think to myself, WWJCD? What would Jeremy Corbyn do? And the sadness just fades away.



According to the former brothel madam Myra Forde, Edward Heath ‘had male prostitutes delivered to Westminster hotels’.

Edward Heath ‘had male prostitutes delivered

According to Myra, Heath made telephone bookings on Wednesday and Thursday nights and met the boy prostitutes in posh hotel rooms just yards from Parliament.

The ‘boys’ were from Spain, Portugal and Greece.

Myra Forde, 67.

Some time back, Winchester Crown Court heard that Forde trained runaway children as prostitutes.

The court was told that one 15-year-old, controlled by Forde, had sex with five men at once.

One 13-year-old would go straight from school to the brothel.

Some people might assume that the police seized the list in order to PROTECT Myra’s clients.

According to Myra, a top BBC star of EastEnders was one of her clients.

Another client was a prominent national radio DJ who would ask for male escorts.

Myra says of her brothel: “We had all sorts of ­people in, actors, news presenters, MPs, barristers, judges and stockbrokers.”

Myra says: “We had lots of celebrities.”

Myra employed both male and female prostitutes.

Myra’s brothel in Salisbury was raided in 1995.

She says: “Until that point I thought … the police couldn’t touch me.”

One of the girls who worked for Myra Forde.

After the 1995 raid, Myra was convicted of running a brothel using under-age children and was jailed for six years.

Myra says that one of her clients “was a stockbroker… He liked to have a girl in the bath and he would hit her with fresh cream cakes, eggs, and milk. He would get in the bath with her and rub himself on her…

“Another man – he was a barrister from Winchester – when he was stressed and he had a case going on he liked to be dominated, punished.

“I would say, ‘You’ve been a naughty boy!’ There would be three escorts in the room and he’d pay more.

“One would be sitting on his back and they would be shouting, ‘Horsey!’”

Myra says there were solicitors who liked to burned with ­candlewax.

There was a farmer who would pay Myra to run over him in her car while he ­performed a sex act on himself.

Suburbs are Sinister Places

Suburbs are Sinister Places

August 14, 2015


British ex-pat reflects on the wasteland he fled.
To implement the NWO, the Illuminati depend on the compliance of the population. The British middle classes comply by subjecting themselves to the tedium of suburban life, which largely consists of watching television.
David Richards, 27, teaches English in Mongolia. He is married to a Mongolian woman and has one child.


by David Richards
Spending my early life in an English suburb drove me mad and is the main reason I left Britain. It is only from Mongolia that I can see how right my instincts were. Suburbs are sinister places.

My hometown of Kenilworth is typical of British suburbia. It features endless rows of middle management homes and gardens. The town is immaculate and there are plenty of green areas. There are modern schools and a shopping precinct; a consumer paradise. It is superficially pleasant, but you only have to spend a short time there to realize all is not well.
Growing up, I used to refer to my home as a ‘flowery ghost town’. Despite having a population of 30,000 people, there is an absence of life. When I went for walks in the evening, the streets were almost always deserted, the dim glow of television sets being the only sign of life.
People have this strangely interiorized style of living, where they switch off the outside world, like it is some threatening television program. They lock their front door and switch on the alarm system and then watch TV and go online. That’s not a recipe for healthy society.
People give the impression that their minds are a complete vacuum; with no dreams or hopes of any importance. Even if there are a few interesting people around, there’s no civic structures to bring people together. The notion of community is kept alive by soap operas, which have millions of loyal viewers.


While the media is controlled by the Illuminati, there is no law forcing people to watch TV all evening. People choose to do that themselves, and the Illuminati depend on this compliance to implement their agenda.
What I see threatening about the  NWO agenda is that it is a collective enterprise; we are all responsible in some way. Most middle-class people love the security, luxury and convenience of suburban life (with the alienation, conformity and passivity that it entails), and are willing to sacrifice their souls to be part of it.

I do not think it is overly dramatic to say they sacrifice their souls. Death takes many forms, and a loss of self-consciousness, of the awareness of self, could be regarded as death. The worst part is that many people actually aspire to enter into the collective coma of suburbia.

I now recognize the awful effect suburban life has on young people. Spending their developmental years locked indoors with their eyes glued to the television not only makes children dumb, but also bereft of life experience.


A lot of suburban kids intuitively know that something is seriously wrong. You can see this in the high number who abuse alcohol and drugs. Boredom and a deadening sense of total pointlessness drove many of my friends into taking drugs.
How can we attack the Illuminati when we don’t try to change the world around us? Many of us rarely even leave the house, let alone do anything positive.
We need to be arbiters of our own reality.  I do not think our behavior even has to be directly political to have a big effect; it can just mean turning off the television and developing relationships, doing good works, and making sure we do not neglect our loved ones. In short: rejecting the alienation and soullessness of suburban life.

First Comment from Richard:
David Richards is right.   Young people are entirely unaware that the suburbs were designed essentially as minimum security holding pens for the “postwar generation”.    Their grandparents or great grandparents that became young adults during WWII were separated by gender for the duration of the war, after which they scattered across the country.   ‘GI Bill’ suburbs offered low cost houses for the war veterans to lure them away from established villages and urban neighborhoods.
I was born in 1955 when this was still new.  Still, I wouldn’t have known what had been lost, if I hadn’t been raised by my grandparents.  They could see that the suburbs would never become like the villages, neighborhoods and small towns people lived for generations before.  For thing, the businesses we used weren’t locally owned.  The stores were all national chains.
So were the banks.  The first ‘malls’ were introduced during the late 1960’s were supposed to provide a ‘town square’ but all one could do there is consume.  Everything from the City council and police were populated with Freemasons.  Their Eastern Star wives got all the teaching jobs in the public schools.  They were gate keepers and enforcers of a a continental prison without walls.   Suburbs are a system that excludes self sufficiency, after the fashion of pastures and pens for livestock.
The 20th century was an ongoing human engineering project in domesticating humanity.

Heath fixed it for Savile to receive OBE and attended Paedophile Information Exchange meetings

Heath fixed it for Savile to receive OBE and attended Paedophile Information Exchange meetings

Nick Dorman, Don Hale — The Mirror August 8, 2015

Savile and the former prime minister Edward Heath share a joke at BBC rehearsals in 1980

Edward Heath backed paedophile Jimmy Savile for a royal honour – two years after the previous Prime Minister warned the Queen against it, reports the Sunday People.

Savile was passed over for an MBE a month before the former Conservative leader moved into No10, the Sunday People can reveal.

But less than two years after Heath took office, the TV presenter – exposed after his death as a serial child-sex abuser – was awarded the HIGHER honour of an OBE.

Heath later appeared on Savile’s BBC TV show Jim’ll Fix It when it was one of the nation’s favourites.

We can also reveal that Heath, under investigation by seven police forces over child abuse claims, was present at more than half a dozen Westminster meetings of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange.

The perverted group was formed to persuade politicians to lower the age of sexual consent to only ten.

The revelations raise fresh doubts over the character of Heath, who died aged 89 in 2005.

A source said: “While nothing has been proven against Heath, these sort of links show why the fullest possible investigation is necessary.

“The authorities must find out if there was any sinister reason for this apparent U-turn over honours to be awarded to Jimmy Savile.”

Government files show that in May 1970 the Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson did “not wish to submit the name of Mr Jimmy Savile for an MBE in the Birthday List”.

Heath took office weeks later after a June General Election and stayed in power until 1974.

And records reveal how Savile was put forward for an OBE midway through Heath’s stint as PM.

The award was made in the New Year’s Honours List of 1972.

Top of the Pops presenter Savile officially received the honour in March of that year.

The words: “The Prime Minister would not wish to submit the name of Mr Jimmy Savile for an MBE in the Birthday List,” appeared in a heavily censored note to civil servant Sir William Armstrong dated May 5 1970, when Wilson was still in power.

The notes goes on: “He would, however, be ready to consider his name again for a future list.”

Savile, who died in 2011 aged 84, became a Sir in 1992 following repeated attempts by Margaret Thatcher to have him knighted.

The relationship between Savile and Heath is being probed by North Yorkshire Police.

The Yorkshire-born DJ had a home in Scarborough, North Yorks, where he is suspected of abusing children with local ice cream parlour boss Peter Jaconelli.

A picture published by the Sunday People in June showed Heath meeting 21-stone Jaconelli, who had become the resort’s mayor, at a civic reception in 1970.

Savile and Jaconelli are suspected of being involved in the abuse of 35 young victims as part of a paedophile ring operating in Scarborough.

Jaconelli, who died in 1999 aged 73 and is buried in the same cemetery as Savile, is feared to have escaped charges because of his links to the rich and powerful.

North Yorkshire Police said last week they were “undertaking a comprehensive search of force systems to assess if there is any information or intelligence held in relation to Mr Heath”.

A dossier of files compiled by former Labour minister Baroness Castle showed Heath was present at Westminster meetings with paedophile rights campaigners from the PIE group.

Heath is said to have attended at least a quarter of the 30 or so monthly or bi-weekly meetings.

His name is said to have appeared on minutes of the private gatherings, also apparently attended by other MPs, along with scoutmasters and headteachers.

But the Castle files have been missing since the mid 1980s.

The baroness, a former MP for Blackburn and Euro MP for Greater Manchester, died in 2002. It was claimed by Savile’s nephew Guy Marsden last week that a boy of 14 was abused by Heath at a London party.

The unnamed victim is said to have been targeted by the politician just over a year before he became Prime Minister after the boy was picked up by Savile.

The man claims he recognised his alleged abuser as Heath only when he saw the politician on TV several years later.

Earlier it was revealed a man had come forward to claim to police he had been abused by Heath at the age of 12 in a flat in Mayfair, central London, after he was picked up as a hitch-hiker when he ran away from home in 1961.

London’s Metropolitan Police said on Tuesday that it had been decided “there were no lines of inquiry that could proportionately be pursued” in relation to that rape allegation.

Heath’s supporters have been highly critical of the allegations being made against him. Former Tory MP Matthew Parris today slammed the “idiocy” surrounding the claims.

But Heath is the highest-profile figure to emerge in allegations of a VIP paedophile ring.

The Sunday People has led the way since campaigning Labour MP Tom Watson first asked David Cameron to investigate historic allegations of paedophile links to 10 Downing Street.

We told how the initial focus of investigations by the Met focused on the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, South West London.

Among the names said to have visited were politicians Leon Brittan, Cyril Smith, Nicholas Fairbairn and Sir Peter Morrison, along with Soviet spy Anthony Blunt.

Another name in our coverage was PIE member Peter Righton, a consultant to the National Children’s Bureau.

We also exposed the group’s former treasurer Charles Napier – jailed last December for sexual abuse against boys.

Amid mounting public pressure Home Secretary Theresa May last July announced an independent inquiry into abuse.

Last month, opening the inquiry, Justice Lowell Goddard said the probe could last until 2020. She warned the proportion of UK kids who have been abused could be as high as one in 20.


Satan: Even if you hate me, please don’t take Labour over the cliff edge

The Labour party is in danger more mortal today than at any point in the over 100 years of its existence. I say this as someone who led the party for 13 years and has been a member for more than 40. The leadership election has turned into something far more significant than who is the next leader. It is now about whether Labour remains a party of government.

Governments can change a country. Protest movements simply agitate against those who govern. Labour in government changed this country. I don’t just mean the minimum wage, civil partnerships, massive investment in public services, lifting millions out of poverty, or peace in Northern Ireland. I mean we changed the nation’s zeitgeist. We forced change on the Tories. We gave a voice to those who previously had none. We led and shaped the public discourse. And, yes, governments do things people don’t like, and in time they lose power. That is the nature of democracy.

But in a thousand ways, small or large, which anyone in government can describe, being in power can make a difference to those we represent. The reality is that in the last three months the Labour party has been changed. Its membership has virtually doubled. Some will have joined in shock at the election result; many more are now joining specifically to support the Jeremy Corbyn campaign; some with heavy organisation behind them. These last two groups are not many in number, relative to the population. But, relative to the membership of a political party, they’re easily big enough to mount a partial takeover. The truth is they don’t really think it matters whether Labour wins an election or not. Some actually disdain government.

So this is directed to longstanding members and those who have joined but without an agenda. They’re still a majority and they have to exercise leadership now to save the party. It doesn’t matter whether you’re on the left, right or centre of the party, whether you used to support me or hate me. But please understand the danger we are in.

The party is walking eyes shut, arms outstretched, over the cliff’s edge to the jagged rocks below. This is not a moment to refrain from disturbing the serenity of the walk on the basis it causes “disunity”. It is a moment for a rugby tackle if that were possible.

This is not the 1980s. This is by many dimensions worse and more life threatening. Michael Foot was never going to win a general election in the UK. But Michael was a towering figure who had been a major cabinet member in the previous Labour government. Tony Benn was never going to be PM; but he was a huge political character who again had long experience of government.

The unions in the 1980s were, by a majority, a force for stability and sense. There were constituencies so solidly Labour that nothing could shake them from their loyalty. The party that assembled after the 1983 defeat knew its direction. Maybe we didn’t know how far or how fast, but we knew, and the new leader Neil Kinnock knew, that we had to put aside the delusion that we had lost two elections because we weren’t leftwing enough and start to modernise. And our objective was to return to government.

What we’re witnessing now is a throwback to that time, but without the stabilisers in place. The big unions, with the exception of the most successful in recent times, USDAW, are in the grip of the hard left. And the people do not have that same old-time loyalty.

If Jeremy Corbyn becomes leader it won’t be a defeat like 1983 or 2015 at the next election. It will mean rout, possibly annihilation. If he wins the leadership, the public will at first be amused, bemused and even intrigued. But as the years roll on, as Tory policies bite and the need for an effective opposition mounts – and oppositions are only effective if they stand a hope of winning – the public mood will turn to anger. They will seek to punish us. They will see themselves as victims not only of the Tory government but of our self-indulgence.

Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t offer anything new. This is literally the most laughable of all the propositions advanced by his camp. Those of us who lived through the turmoil of the 80s know every line of this script. These are policies from the past that were rejected not because they were too principled, but because a majority of the British people thought they didn’t work. And by the way, they were rejected by electorates round the world for the same reasons.

Even more so today, they do not think their challenges can be met by old-fashioned state control as the way to personal or social empowerment; they do not think breaking up Nato unilaterally is sensible; and they realise that a party without a serious deficit-reduction plan is not in these times a serious contender to govern them.

I don’t doubt that his campaign has sparked interest. Why wouldn’t it? There is something fascinating about watching a party wrestle with its soul. It doesn’t mean it is a smart place to be. And, yes, some young people will be enthused. Many Young Labour members were enthused in 1997 and are enthused by modernising Labour policy today.

The tragedy is that immense damage has already been done by a policy debate that, with some honourable exceptions, is defined by its irrelevance to the challenges of the modern world. We should be discussing how technology should revolutionise public services; how young people are not just in well-paid, decent jobs but also have the chance to start businesses that benefit their communities; how Britain stays united and in Europe; what reform of welfare and social care can work in an era of radical demographic change.

Instead we’re talking about bringing back Clause IV. There is a vast array of policy questions to answer. We’re not even asking them right now. We know where this ends. We have been here before. But this sequel will be a lot scarier than the original. So write it if you want to. Go over the edge if you want. But think about those we most care about and how to help them before you do.

VAT row: Treasury urges airport shops to cut prices for travellers

Minister stresses that tax discount is meant to be passed on to passengers who show boarding cards when buying duty-free

Retailers have been urged by the Treasury to cut their prices at airports to reflect VAT discounts they receive for travellers leaving Europe amid claims that some stores are using the relief to boost their profits.

The Treasury minister David Gauke stressed that the savings shops make through VAT discounts at airports are supposed to be passed on to customers, not used as a way to boost profits.

He spoke after the Independent revealed that many airport stores are asking passengers to present their boarding cards when making a purchase.

The information on the cards is then used to claim VAT relief on sales to travellers leaving the EU.

The practice means that retailers do not pay 20% VAT on goods sold to customers travelling outside the EU. The newspaper claimed stores such as Boots and WH Smith did not pass on the savings to customers.

The revelation led to intervention from the Treasury, with Gauke insisting retailers should use VAT relief to benefit customers. He told the Independent: “The VAT relief at airports is intended to reduce prices for travellers, not as a windfall gain for shops.

“While many retailers do pass this saving on to customers, it is disappointing that some are choosing not to. We urge all airside retailers to use this relief for the benefit of their customers.”

Many Britons leaving the country for summer holidays may be susceptible to the practice.

It is not a legal requirement for passengers to show their boarding cards when buying supposedly duty free goods and many are now reportedly refusing to show them.
