It’s not often that I have a good word to say about police chiefs. Greater Manchester Police bosses forced me out of a job I loved and top brass everywhere are usually too busy doing the bidding of politicians.
But there are still a few who aren’t political pawns. One is Mike Veale, the inspirational Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police.
Mr Veale has given a textbook demonstration of how the police should be free from political interference and able to investigate crimes without fear or favour.

Mike Veale has spent two years being assailed by the Establishment over his investigation into paedophile allegations against Sir Edward Heath.
The Wiltshire Chief Constable has had to bite his lip as mandarins, ex-Cabinet Ministers, Tory MPs, peers, members of the judiciary and media moguls lambasted his controversial Operation Conifer.
He was accused of being ‘stupid’, leading a ‘witch-hunt’, and told he would be forced to resign the moment it saw the light of day.

A memorial to a yachting tragedy that killed two young men on Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath’s Morning Cloud has been unveiled, 41 years after the accident.
The accident, which badly damaged and flooded the 44ft Morning Cloud 3, forcing her crew to abandon to a liferaft, shocked the sailing community and made headlines round the world.
The photo above shows the wreckage of the yacht after being salvaged later that month.
The bow section salvaged from the wreckage has been put on display at Sir Edward’s former home, Arundells, in Salisbury. It was unveiled by Sir Ben Ainslie on 15 May and serves as a reminder of the terrible events of night of 2 September 1974, and a memorial to the two men who were lost: Christopher Chadd and Nigel Cumming.
Memorial unveiled to the crew lost when Sir Edward Heath’s Morning Cloud broke up and sank
Morning Cloud 3 sank on 3rd September 1974, 3 days after Morning Cloud 1 (which had been sold 4 years earlier) sank in Jersey on 2nd September – according to Wikipedia; but the Melbourne Age says that Morning Cloud 3 (calling it II) also sank on 2nd September. Source
Sussex police said two bodies had been found during the search – both partly decomposed – but neither was the other missing crewman. Source
Who were they?…and what’s with the Wikipedia date conflicts?
Heath’s home, Arundells, had once been the home of one Leonard Bilson, a cannon who on St. John’s Eve in 1561 was arrested for conjuring – other sources say, sorcery and magic. Papistry was recorded as his crime when he seems to have served out the rest of his life in the brutal prisons of the Tower and Marshalsea. Here is a reference to Leonard Bilson.
Arundells, in Wiltshire, was named after the 18th century the sixth Lord Arundel of Wardour. The house belonged to the Church from its beginnings until Heath bought it (after leasing it since 1985) in 1993. The house name is the same as the town in West Sussex, Arundel, once spelled Arundell.
The concealed informant explained that he was an initiate of a Satanist cult called The Friends of Hecate. He claimed that the woods were used for their monthly meetings, and that the missing animals had been used as sacrifices to Hecate. He made no mention of the deaths of the Constable, or the Reverend, or any of the others, but Walker drew a connection between all of the events just the same. The mysterious man then issued a dire warning, saying:
The Clapham Wood Mystery
Animal rights activists have accused London’s biggest parks of ‘callous slaughter’ after figures revealed over 10,000 wild animals have been culled by rangers in the last four years.
More than 8,400 mammals and 3,240 birds have been exterminated by the Royal Parks authority since January 2013, including 1,734 deer, 2,657 rabbits and 1,221 crows.
Rangers at the organisation’s eight open spaces, which include Hyde Park and Richmond Park, have also killed 3,679 squirrels, 330 foxes, 268 geese and 382 magpies.

Are the Dead Sea Scrolls historical documents or collectible items? How you answer that question may determine how you feel about new revelations that fragments of scrolls in private collections that their owners have paid millions for are probably fakes … well-made forgeries, but fakes nonetheless. One of the victims of these frauds is the Museum of the Bible, which is scheduled to open in Washington DC in November 2017. In a new article in Dead Sea Discoveries by paleographer and Dead Sea Scrolls expert, Dr. Kipp Davis, many of the “scrolls” to be displayed in that facility are questionable at best, fakes at worst.

You’d think it’d be hard for a city to completely misplace something like a seven-mile long tunnel underneath their city, but that appears to be exactly what has happened in Coventry, England. Archivists from The Telegraph were going through their records when they discovered three unexplained photographs. The pictures are dated 17th March 1970 and show workers hunched inside a tiny tunnel. The captions clearly state that the workers are digging a tunnel under the Coventry city center, but historians and city clerks are at a loss to explain what they tunnel might be used for – and whether or not it’s still there.
