Pope Francis
The heart of the Roman Catholic Church has been rocked all the way to Saint Peter’s tomb, with shocking revelations made by a whistle-blowing former priest.

It involves a homosexual prostitution ring, with young teenage males and roughly ten to twenty Roman Clergy including four Bishops.

The whistle-blowing former priest; who, as a recruiter to the boy prostitution ring, also claims to have stolen consecrated hosts from inside the inner sanctum of the Roman Catholic Church and sold them to Satanists, in and around Rome to be used in their satanic rituals.

Imagine Saint Peter’s skull being used in a satanic ritual, or God forbid, the Turin Shroud covering a Satanic altar, while a splinter from the cross Jesus was crucified on, is used to kill sacrificial babies.


Altar boys at risk
Testimony provided to Rome police and prosecutors include video and pictures, which add proof to his claims.

The whistle-blowing former priest; who was convicted of sexual abuse and jailed for 5 years in an Italian prison, came to the Vatican and tried to get reinstated, but was refused.

Infuriated he’s since blown the whistle on the whole sex ring; he's taken pictures, video and, together with collaborating evidence, handed it all over to Italian police and prosecutors.

An emergency meeting of all the Cardinals has been called by Pope Francis, to prepare themselves for impending arrests.


No smoke without fire
This disturbing news coming from Rome, explains the sudden resignation of Pope Benedict, who is currently living in a monastery inside Vatican City limits.

Sources close to Guerrilla Democracy say ‘The breaking scandal has been in the pipe-line for months and Pope Benedict has known about it since the very start.

‘This is why he resigned. He's at the centre of the scandal and, like the rat he is, jumped ship, knowing full well the scandal is big enough to bring down the whole Christian faith.’

Breaking 600 years of taboo, Pope Benedict retired to guarantee protection from these impending indictments which Italian police are planning.

The most recent news from the Vatican is that Pope Benedict is in very poor physical condition and may not have long to live. Friends close to Pope Benedict say he’s ‘fading fast’.

The stress must be immense. Privy to such dark secrets, and lying to the faithful, must take its toil on anyone, let alone an old man.

Let God be his judge…


Following on from the Guerrilla Democracy weekend special, ‘The Queen is Guilty of Manslaughter’, news is in that the Royal Family has been granted absolute protection from public scrutiny.

In addition to The Sovereign Grant of £36.1 million a year, announced last week, a new grant is being granted which will make the Windsor Family the most secretive family in the world.

With recent revelations of scandal leading to the very heart of the Windsor royal family, this legislation is seen as vital to the continuing protection and cover-up of Royal members and their crimes.

This controversial legal reform of the Freedom of Information Act will finally draw a veil of secrecy over the affairs of the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William, forever.

Letters, emails and documents relating to the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Williams will no longer be disclosed even if they are in the public interest.

It will, once and for all, shut off the light which illuminates the murky world of royal affairs, finances and decision making.


Sources close to Guerrilla Democracy reveal the Queen was ‘incandescent with rage’, when a Freedom of Information request, which the Cabinet Office fought against for 15-months, was allowed to reveal a secret which the Royal Palace had spent nurturing and protecting for over a hundred years.

The Whitehall papers showed that senior royals exercised royal powers to consent to or block new laws.

This contradicts the aged-old-line that the Queen is advised by parliament to provide consent to those bills and not the other way round.

The Palace was forced to damage the limitation by assuring the public that the sovereign has ‘not refused to consent to any bill affecting crown interests unless advised to do so by ministers.’

The Freedom of Information request reveals:

  • At least 39 bills have been vetoed by senior royals.
  • The Queen vetoed proposed legislation in the Military Actions against Iraq Bill in 1999, which sought to transfer the power to authorize going to war from the monarch to parliament.
  • She consented to the Civil Partnership Act 2004 because it contained a declaration which would bind her and as a consequence was identified to be a matter of royal concern.
  • Prince Charles has consented to 20 pieces of legislation.
  • The Queen and Prince Charles have been involved with issues covering higher education, paternity pay to identity cards and child maintenance.

‘This is opening the eyes to those who believe the Queen only has a ceremonial role’ said one politician.

‘It shows the royals are playing an active role in the democratic process’ says another.

‘There has been an implication that these prerogative powers are quaint and sweet but actually there is real influence and real power, albeit unaccountable,’ said the legal scholar who fought the freedom of information case to access the papers.


Sources close to Guerrilla Democracy reveal Prince Charles as the driving force behind the new law.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said ‘The change to the law was necessary because the Freedom of Information Act had failed to protect that constitutional position of the monarch and the heir to the throne.’

The Palace says ‘Prince Charles is keen that the sovereign retains the right and duty to be consulted, to encourage and warn the government, and by extension, the heir to the throne has the constitutional right and duty to prepare himself for the role of King.’


The passing of this new law is seen as essential to the continuing reign of the Windsor royal family.

Persistent rumors continue to circulation that senior members such as Prince Philip and The Duke of Kent, are members of evil Satanic groups who partake in the murder and sacrifice of young virgins and babies.

‘Ever since the royal connection to Jimmy Savile was exposed, the flood gates have opened,’ says a source close to Guerrilla Democracy.

‘The common denominator is a knighthood. The Queen and Prince Philip have the uncanny sense to make friends with the world’s most evil paedophiles and murders. The sooner the public make the connection, the quicker they’ll fall and Great Britain will be a greater place to live.’

Guilty of Manslaughter
This stunning headline has been inferred from a report published by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England, about the economic impact on children.

It found that the Government’s austerity measures will negativity impact on 600,000 of the nation’s poorest kids.

The report makes no bones about it, ‘Families with children in the poorest 10% of the population are losing an average of £40 per week.’

‘More children are entering poverty, ultimately, that means more children going without the basics because their parents and carers cannot afford them.’

Children will inevitably die. Children will starve to death and will be abandoned to the State.

‘The report is the most comprehensive and accurate analysis to date on what exactly is happening to the poorest and most vulnerable members of society’, says Maggie Atkinson, Children’s Commissioner for England.
Maggie Atkinson

This disturbing news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that the Queen will receive £5 million extra in funds.

The inference that the Queen is killing our children is starkly illustrated with the news that ‘The Sovereign Grant’ will give £36.1 million a year to the Queen from tax payers money, which the Conservative Government can no longer afford to give to the nation’s poorest children.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is taking millions from the poorest children in her Kingdom to ensure her grandchildren receive the same from life, as she did.

Children are dying so she can live in the lap of luxury.

It will only be a matter of time before a family is found dead in their family car. The mother and father would have feed the exhaust gases back into the car to kill themselves. The suicide note will read ‘I blame the Queen for murdering my family.’


Expectant parents
William and Kate are refurbishing their Kensington Palace apartment, to the tune of £1 million, to create the perfect home for their new baby.

Whilst most expectant parents in the UK make do with £500 spent at B&Q, William and Kate can sit back and watch the decorators do the work for them.

While one child lives in opulent luxury, a million more live in abstract poverty.

The Royal Family are famed for their luxurious life-styles. The Queen enjoyed an upbringing much like the Buddha, who as a Prince was isolated in a bubble of opulence and comfort, away from the real world until early adulthood, where he saw illness, poverty and death for the first time.

King George and Queen consort Elizabeth made it a rule to give the princesses (Elizabeth and Margaret) the best of everything; ensured nothing more stressful than the decision of which toy to play with, should inflict upon their lives.

A happy Monarch
The same happened to Charles, Anne, Andrew and Edward and the same amount of privilege was afforded to William and Harry and the other Royal grandchildren.

It’s the same for all aristocracy. With enough money in the bank, anyone can lead a life of abundance, luxury and ease.

As Royal tradition dictates, the new Royal baby will enjoy the life-style which the Royal family have become accustomed to, and will continue to live, as it has been for hundreds of years.

Conveniently for the Windsor Royal family, the British taxpayer foots the bill.

NOTHING LASTS FOREVER - Not even Royal Dynasties.

According to this calculation, the Windsor Royal Family has only 3 years left to reign.

The Normans                          1066-1154                   (88 years)
The Plantagenet’s                    1154-1399                   (245 years)                                          
The House of Lancaster           1399-1461                   (62 years)
The House of York                  1461-1485                   (24 years)
The Tudors                             1485-1603                   (118 years)
The House of Stuart                 1603-1714                   (111 years)
House of Hanover                    1714-1910                   (196 years)
House of Windsor                    1910-                           (103 years and counting)          

To find the average, add up the years each Royal dynasty reigned and divide by the number of Royal dynasties. Thus the Windsor Royal family is predicted to reign on average for 106 years. Time is running out.


All indications point to a Royal Rothschild Family, as favorites to take over from the Windsor’s.

It’s envisaged that the end of the Windsor Royal family would come about after the scandal to beat all scandals. The perfect scandal, which would see the Windsor’s banished to the wastes of Canada in disgrace and shame.

Imagine the scenario that upon the death of Queen Elizabeth, historical documents will come to light which prove she and her sister, Margaret, were illegitimate daughters of none other than Sir Winston Churchill.
Winston Churchill + Queen consort = Elizabeth and Margaret
Public uproar will ensue.

Constitutional lawyers will call the Windsor bloodline a fraud, because Elizabeth wasn’t the biological daughter of King George VI. All claims from the Windsor's to the British throne are therefore null and void.


The Rothschild family will enter the fray, with the revelation that Lionel Nathan Rothschild, the world financier in the 1800’s, was actually the father of King George VI.

Lionel Nathan Rothschild + Queen Victoria = King George VI
Again, leaked documents will rock the foundations of British society. Lionel Nathan Rothschild was the secret lover of Queen Victoria. The public will be equally shocked and enthralled.

No doubt, leaked documents will reveal Kate Middleton to be a long lost descendant of a Rothschild too. This will clean up the constitutional mess by keeping it in the family. The argument will be that as both William and Kate are descendants of a Rothschild; their Royal baby can be constitutionally crowned as the first Rothschild monarch of Great Britain and the Commonwealth.

The people will love it. ‘LONG LIVE THE KING, LONG LIVE THE QUEEN,’ the crowds will cheer.

With no counter-claim from the true descendants of King Arthur (whose true history had been suppressed by the Windsor’s to legitimate their fraudulent claim upon the British throne), the Rothschild’s will be left free to reign supreme, on average, for the next 106 years.

Long Live the Rothschild Royal Family

Gideon Osborne aka The Chancellor
Following Gideon Osborne’s £11.5 Billion public spending cuts, Guerrilla Democracy offers its readers five easy steps to beat Gideon.

Gideon Osborne, who at 13-years-old added George to his name as an act of rebellion, has inflicted further damaging austerity measures on to the country.

The people of the UK have been whipped to exhaustion following national riots, protests, terrorist attacks and sporting events, have took the news on the chin, with no protests or argument.

As cuts begin to hurt the British people, it's justice system, education system, health system and welfare system; Guerrilla Democracy has identified five easy ways to escape the clutches of bureaucracy and free you from Gideon’s austerity measures.

Everything Guerrilla Democracy recommends is perfectly legal and above board. Tax evasion is illegal but tax avoidance is encouraged by big business and actively used. 

Don’t be afraid to jump on board and tell your friends.

Register yourself ‘SELF EMPLOYED’.
Ring HMRC Working Tax hotline on 02890538192, choose option 5 and declare yourself ‘self employed’. Predict £6000 as income for the first year (as an absolute minimum)

Tear up your UB40. Notify the Job Centre you’re signing off. You will no longer be required to ‘sign on’ ever again.

Earn at least £20 per week. This is the absolute minimum you must earn to receive the same amount of income as you would get from Job Seekers allowance.

Reinvest all your earnings back into yourself. Buy yourself a new car, a new computer, new clothes, new decorations, and new shoes. Put your money in new adventures, your pension and your children’s trust fund. Put your money anywhere and everywhere except into the hands of Gideon.

Declare no more than your taxable allowance. Give nothing to Gideon. The only payment which you are legally obliged to make is your national insurance contribution of £2.63 a week.

Five steps to beat Gideon, five easy steps to free you from the bureaucratic folly of nameless civil servants and politicians.


Cry Baby
A source close to Guerrilla Democracy reveals disturbing news about Gideon, ‘Our Chancellor is knowingly servicing a fraudulent national debt, to grease the palms of his masters in the financial sector. Don’t forget this irrefutable fact, banks have been found out on hundreds of occasions. By ‘found out’ I mean, they have been taken to court and found guilty of fraud and ordered to pay damages. It’s common practice for banks to settle out of court to hide their crimes from the glare of publicity.

Remember bankers fraudulently added PPI (Payment protection insurance) onto every loan issued in the UK over the last decade. Of course they claim that PPI was ‘mis-sold,' but really it wasn't, it was fraud.

All the major banks manipulated the LIBOR rate. This resulted in billions if not trillions, being defrauded from the public.

HSBC laundered Mexican drug cartel money.

Three examples of banker’s criminality, which prove they are criminals of the highest order. They pay fines in the millions (Barclays fined £390 million over the Libor rate scandal) to stay out of jail.

Gideon knows our national debt is fraudulent, but doesn't care because spending cuts don’t affect him, he's aristocracy, he's born into it.’

Say ‘No, I don’t understand’ when arrested by a Police officer.

The Seagulls
Brighton & Hove Albion football club has stunned the city, with the sacking of their football team manager, Gus Poyet.

Chairman of Brighton and Hove Albion, Tony Bloom has insisted he cannot say anything about as to why he has been sacked. Gus Poyet has three weeks to appeal against the decision.

Uruguayan born Gus Poyet joined Brighton in 2009 and was suspended by Brighton for a breach of contract, as was his assistant, Mauricio Taricco, and the first-team coach Oatway.

Tony Bloom
Gus Poyet
Speculation is rife throughout Brighton’s football community as to why and what happened. Some are dismissing the sacking and moving on, while others believe in sinister events going on behind the scenes.

The start of Gus Poyet’s demise appears to have started over a shit in the dressing room of Crystal Palace whilst playing at the Amex Stadium for the Championships second leg pay-offs.

Gus Poyet was reported to be furious with his staff and blasted off an angry email, which has since been published on the internet.

He said ‘I am angry that someone within this club could endanger our good reputation and stoop so low.’

Shit in the Crystal Palace dressing room
Behind the scenes, Gus Poyet’s reputation was further smeared with muck, following the release of Spanish mid-field star Vincte, who described him as ‘The worst person in football.’

Vincte said ‘For me he is a selfish person, very egocentric. I’ve seen things here that I have never seen in my career. If you miss a shot in training, he makes fun. For me, that is unacceptable in football.’

To make matters worse, it appears that Gus Poyet learnt about his dismissible live on TV, though Brighton and Hove Albion dismiss this as a set-up.

He said 'Its been really sad because they gave me so much and made me feel so proud.'

Gus Poyet intends to appeal.


The intense rivalry between Brighton and Crystal Palace football clubs can be linked back to Tottenham FC team-mates Terry Venables and Alan Mullery.

Terry Venables
In June 1976, Crystal Palace appointed Terry Venables as manager. The following month Brighton and Hove Albion followed suit by naming Alan Mullery as their new manager.

The pair were already fierce rivals on and off the pitch, following a hotly contested race to become team captain.

Alan Mullery remembers, ‘I think it was probably because I got the Tottenham captaincy before him.’
Alan Mullery

The 1977 season brought both clubs together five times. Even though both teams were to go on and win promotion out of the third and into the second division. Tensions came to a head over the retaking of a penalty given to Brighton, during the FA Cup second replay at Stamford Bridge on 6 December.

Crystal Palace’s Barry Silkman fouled Chris Cattlin in the area and Brighton were awarded a penalty, which Brain Horton converted. The referee, however made him retake the kick because of encroachment.

This time the goalie, Paul Hammond, saved it and the gamed ended 1-0 to Crystal Palace.

As Alan Mullery marched of the pitch, a flask of boiling hot coffee was tipped over him by a Crystal Palace supporter.

Mullery pulled a handful of small change out of his pocket and threw it to the floor shouting ‘That’s all you’re worth Crystal Palace’, after which he gestured to the Crystal Palace fans with one-finger.

He was subsequently led away by Police and fined £100 by the FA for bringing the game into disrepute.

It was this evening that Brighton and Crystal Palace became bitter enemies.


The Eagles
In fact, if Crystal Palace FC never existed, Brighton & Hove Albion would be nicknamed the 'Dolphins'.

This priceless historical fact has all but been forgotten. Brighton has Crystal Palace to thank for being called the Seagulls

Not too far back during the 1974/75 season, Crystal Palace supporters revved up their chanting with ‘Eagles, Eagles’, to which a group of Brighton & Hove Albion fans responded with a chant of ‘Seagulls, Seagulls’. 

It stuck ever since.

Ben Fellows
Fresh doubts have surfaced concerning the testimony of Ben Fellows, who alleged he was sexually molested by Ken Clarke, the prominent Conservative heavyweight and Minister without portfolio.

Ben Fellows, an investigative journalist and a crusader against corruption, posted an open letter to Ken Clarke which alleged:

·        Ken Clarke grabbed his cock
·        The incident was secretly filmed by the Cook Report
·        John Major, as Prime Minister at the time, covered up the evidence by conspiring to dispose of the incriminating tapes, with the contrived Carlton Communication takeover of Central TV
·        David Cameron, as head of Carlton Communications at the time, helped dispose of the incriminating tapes
·        That Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber stuck his tongue down his throat when he was a child

Publicised on the popular alternative blog site The Needle, fresh doubts have been posted which contradict the testimony of Ben Fellows and points to the conclusion that he has lied at worse or is a victim of mistaken identity at best.

It reports that David Henche, (2012 Political Journalist of the Year) and a senior journalist working for The Guardian newspaper with the Cook Report,  knew exactly what went on during the Cook Report investigation into Cash for Questions.

It was the witness statement taken from David Henche which saved Ken Clarke’s reputation and ensured no further investigation into the matter.

He says ‘The most egregious error that he has made, and one that could have far reaching consequences for many others, is the allegation that Ken Clarke molested him. This is completely untrue. Ken Clarke was never involved in the Cook Report investigation into Cash for Questions in any way, shape, or form. Ken Clarke was Chancellor of the Exchequer at the time and the idea that he would be hobnobbing with Ian Greer is simply ridiculous.’

Shying away from calling Ben Fellows a complete liar, he offers an olive branch with the theory that it was all a case of mistaken identity.

He says ‘That said there is another man who Ben Fellows almost certainly would have met during his time working on the Cook Report and that is Sir Peter Morrison, “a known pederast”, who was so close to Ian Greer that he actually had a desk in Greer Associates’ office.

Incredible as it seems, that ‘a known pederast’, a word which I had to look up, meaning ‘a man who has sexual relations with a boy’, enjoyed a close relationship with Ian Greer and actually had a desk in Greer Associates office.

So in all likelihood, Ben Fellows is telling the truth about being sexually molested in Ian Greer’s office, but it wasn’t by Ken Clarke, but was actually Sir Peter Morrison.

After all, their resemblances are remarkable.

Sir Peter Morrison & Ken Clarke
With the numerous blogs, articles and comments about Ben Fellows circulating the internet, the reader is left scratching their head.

‘Where’s the proof?’ and with no proof forthcoming the goodwill to Ben Fellows is fast evaporating.

Take for example this comment left by Em:

‘Finally! Ben Fellows has fooled a lot of people. He makes many claims that he can’t back up. He like’s pulling on heart strings and asking for money too! People should be very wary of him. He is as dodgy as they come. I’m glad people have started to see through his bullshit. He and his wife should be ashamed of themselves.’

With the support of leading alternative media personalities such as David Icke, Bill Maloney and Chris Spivey, this scandal is set to run and run.

The general consensus seems to be that Ken Clarke couldn’t possibly be a pervert and couldn’t possibly grab a cock.

As is common with politics, the Aye's equal the Nay’s and whether the truth will ever get out is anyone’s guess.

Though there is one man who could put us all straight… Roger Cook…

As the main man with the show named after him, surely if anyone knows the truth, its Roger. I wouldn’t be surprised if a copy of the film existed, Roger would have it.

Roger Cooke, where are you? Throw your hat in the ring please and prove one way or other, is Ben Fellows a liar?

Sunday 23 June 2013


It’s been 10 years since six Royal Military Policemen were brutally murdered in a desolate out-post in the desert wastes of Iraq.

  • Sergeant Simon Hamilton-Jewell, 41, from Surrey
  • Corporal Russell Aston, 30, from Derbyshire
  • Corporal Paul Long, 24, from South Shields
  • Corporal Simon Miller, 21, from Washington
  • Lance Corporal Ben Hyde, 23, from North Yorkshire
  • Lance Corporal Tom Keys, 20, from North Wales

10 years on, their killers are going about their lives with memories of what happened that fateful day etched deep into their hearts and souls.

Majar al-Kabir, South of Iraq
The theater of War turns people into monsters. One neighbour can inflict torture on the other if the circumstances are right. It’s a horrible truth to admit but humans can be as wild and brutal as any other earthly creature.

10 years ago with the Iraqi occupation in full swing, the British Army command followed the American example in Baghdad, and approved an aggressive search and retrieve weapons policy.

Against this backdrop, the six RMP’s whose names will be remembered forever by their Corp, found themselves in an isolated police station on the outskirts of Majar al-Kabir, in the south of Iraq.

They were there to train Iraqis to police their own community.

At first the British soldiers were greeted as liberators, as the Shia city had suffered greatly under Saddam Hussein's rule.

The problems started when they went to collect weapons.

On the Monday morning British troops started aggressive searches of homes. As in most Iraq, almost everybody is armed. Bearing arms is seen as a fundamental part of life, and a must have necessity in this time of uncertainly for their country.

The Iraqi people pride themselves on their honour and traditions. Having filthy desert trailing soldiers burst through their homes, shouting, pointing guns, up turning furniture, scattering everything in sight and man-handling women and children, would consequently lead to anger.

The police station naturally became the focal point of the people’s protest. On Monday morning about 100 locals gathered outside holding placards saying ‘OUR TOWN IS SAFE. STOP THE SEARCHES’.

The Royal Military Police inside confronted the crowd and explained the situation as diplomatically as possible; if you don’t disperse helicopters would come and kill you.

Naturally with such over-powering force at disposal, the protest broke up and soon four British Warrior armoured personnel carriers took up a position outside the police station.

Corporal Russell Aston
With the arrival of a British officer a deal was brokered with the Community leader. The deal was this:

  • There was no necessity that the coalition and its agents come to the city.
  • The process of securing weapons in al-Majar district will be supervised by the local security committee.
  • After a period of a week for informing people, heavy weapons, including Dushka [a Soviet-made heavy machine gun], mortars and anti-aircraft guns will be handed in.
  • To see results within one month.
The agreement was sealed with the signatures of a community leader and a British Officer called Captain Tim, ‘We thought we had an agreement,’ said a local.

Sergeant Simon Hamilton-Jewell
But early the next day, a Parachute regiment of soldiers kicked open doors and pointed the barrels of their automatic guns into the faces of fearful families. The raids continued unabated and with renewed vigor. It was either a case of miscommunication or willful disregard to the agreement signed the day before.

The locals were incensed and came out of their homes to fight for their honour.

It wasn’t the British army’s best day. Many stories are now circulating about the behaviour of the British soldiers. Some say they shot dogs, others allege that the troops stole money and harassed women by searching their rooms, and the women themselves.

Corporal Simon Miller
What is certain is that the claims are similar to those made in those cities further north where US troops have adopted an aggressive search policy.

After intense negotiations and much pain suffered by the locals, the British officer agreed to stop for lunch and cease the searches.

But incredulously, the locals watched in horror as within hours of the discussions, British soldiers got back to business and started to search more houses.

It was the end of the tether for the locals and violence sparked.

At least one of the British vehicles was torched and some kind of firefight followed. A Chinook helicopter coming to support the soldiers was hit by a rocket propelled grenade. Local people then dragged off a British vehicle and burned it.

Lance Corporal Tom Keys
By about 10am a vengeful crowd had gathered in the bazaar. What happened next is unclear. Several witnesses say British soldiers moved through the bazaar after searching houses. The witnesses claim they treated local people roughly. ‘One threatened my child with his gun,’ an Iraqi mother complained. As anger built, stones were thrown at the soldiers.

As more people gathered, more stones were thrown. The soldiers are said to have fired back rubber bullets to disperse the crowds, though this is denied by the British army.

What did happen was that a local man started shooting and the British soldiers fired back.

‘It was about 10.15 and the market was very crowded,’ says an eye witness, ‘I threw myself on the ground and shouted to everybody to run away or get down. The shooting lasted for about five minutes but there were bullets going everywhere. They were firing on automatic.’

At least 17 people were hit, included a 13-year-old girl caught by a ricochet in the shoulder and a nine-year-old boy.

Lance Corporal Ben Hyde
As the wounded lay dying in the bazaar the British soldiers drove away. One local said they retreated to an outlying village. The crowd, however, were incensed.  A well known local ambulance man, father to a large family was killed by a bullet to his heart. Many returned home to get their weapons - the very arms that the British soldiers had been trying to collect hours earlier. They headed towards the police station where they knew the British army had a presence.

Corporal Paul Long
The six RMPs at the police station were well known. For weeks they had been coming to the station to liaise with and train the hastily recruited local police force. They had faced no animosity before, except the protest a day earlier.

They couldn’t have known about the massacre miles down the road, because the radios were kept in their land rover, and that was burnt the day before. The Quarter Master wouldn’t have had time to replace it.

The armed crowd was hundreds strong and set on revenge. A siege of the police station began.

No one in Majar al-Kabir would admit to being among the attackers who besieged the police station. But you can be sure that 10 years on, hundreds of locals remember every horrific detail.

By 1pm, all six RMP’s were dead.

RMP guarding Police Station
We know from the Coroner’s report, they only had a third of the ammunition they were meant to.

The six RMP’s took up their positions, four covering entry points downstairs and two on the roof. Their orders were to hold the station and as British soldiers they would not retreat or surrender.

At the time the police station was packed with Iraqi police who the RMP’s were training.

They crawled through a hole in the wall of the police station and away to safety. The Iraqi police pleading with the RMP’s to follow. They assured them of their safety and said they’ll be killed if they stayed.

RMP holding Police Station
The six RMP’s stood their ground. Someone must have opened fired because a fire fight ensued. The initial attacked was repelled but all their ammo was gone.

The locals regrouped and attacked the Police Station from across the open waste of land to its south. The six RMP’s are believed to have died mercilessly and unable to defend themselves.

The Coroners report revealed the horrific details that they all died from multiple shot wounds. Some had up to 20 rounds fired into their bodies. It was clear that the vengeful mob stood over their bodies and fired until their magazines ran dry.

A killer walking away from the Police Station
In March 2006, an inquest into their deaths recorded a verdict of unlawful killing. The Coroner heard claims the soldiers had antiquated radio equipment and only 50 rounds of ammunition rather than the 150 they were supposed to, but ruled their deaths could not have been avoided. An Army Board of Inquiry in 2004 had previously found “no conclusive evidence” that the deaths could have been prevented.

In 2010, eight Iraqis were arrested over their killings, but the charges against six were dropped. The other two stood trial in Baghdad in October that year, only for the case to collapse after just two hours.

As it stands today, 10 years on, no one has been brought to justice. The Iraqi authorities know who killed the six RMP’s, the British Government know and the residents of Majar al-Kabir know.

For the sake of Simon Miller, Tom Keys, Simon Hamilton-Jewell, Russell Aston, Ben Hyde, Paul Long and their families, the world needs to know too…

More than anything, we need to know justice has been served for the deaths of six fallen heroes. And I, once a Royal Military Policeman myself, will never forget the names of our fallen brothers.

Mr. Reg Keys
Mr. Reg Keys, father of Tom, knows it will never bring his son back, as does every parent of a soldier taken in war.

But there are too many mantelpieces across the country, adorned with happy family photographs of young sons and daughters, who will never laugh again. There are too many bedrooms trapped in time, untouched since they got the news. There is too much silence, which would otherwise be filled with the talk of life. There have been too many tears, cried over too many years. There has been too much grief for two nations to bear.

Please let it end… 10 years on…
