Niven Sinclair – Three times convicted Child Rapist worked for the BBC for 30 years

There is no doubt that Niven James Sinclair was a very successful businessman. He built a specialist minicab business, a high end chaffeur firm for TV, from a single car, transporting guests for Panorama in 1977 to 150 cars in 2000 [11]. He ended up doing all the work for the BBC at Lime Grove.

niven sinclairThe only trouble was he was a three times convicted child abuser, and multiple child rapist.

There are 3 court appeals with information about Niven James Sinclair and his child sexual abuse crimes. For these check out my three other posts on the Court appeals [17] [18] [19]

He sexually abused and raped several boys 12 -15 years old. His method of grooming was to offer boys money for doing odd jobs. He would meet some boys on Stanmore Common [18] near Harrow, which could have been a gay cruising ground  [10].

He would also procure boys through other boys he knew. He would offer boys food and drink [17], then assault them. He was also known to threaten boys with an illegally held gun [19]. He had a violence conviction in Africa, though not sexually related [17]

He has traded under and used several different company names at different times, BB Communications Ltd 19/06/1984, B B Communications Ltd 06/12/1988, Lime Grove Cars Ltd 27/07/1988, B.B. Enterprises (Vehicles) 30/08/1990 [40], Niven Ltd 1717194 dissolved 2009 [34], Niven and Co, Helevision Ltd, Trident Heritage t/a Trident Niven [36]

Without more research it is uncertain whether Sinclair is still actually working for the BBC or one of these companies, or whether he has retired. However what is absolutely certain is that for nearly 30 years, from 1977 to 2005, a multiple child rapist was working for the BBC [1], and the BBC either still does not know or has kept this fact hidden.

In the seventies and eighties MI5 were vetting people at the BBC [20], although they say they have now stopped ;-) .

  • Why did MI5 not find out that Niven Sinclair was a child abuser from basic checks?
  • Were MI5 hopelessly incompetent or did they know that he was a child rapist?
  • Did the “Security Service” MI5 know of his child abuse and realise this was another man that could be controlled by blackmail, to do as the controllers of MI5, whoever they are, wished?

It also a begs a host of questions about the BBC

  • Why did the BBC’s procedures not pick up that Niven Sinclair was a three convicted abuser?
  • Did the BBC know Sinclair was an abuser but not care?
  • Did Niven Sinclairs companies ever chauffeur children?
  • What safeguarding procedures did the BBC have in place for children at the time who used an approved BBC chauffeur company?
  • What safeguarding procedures are in place now?
  • Which companies are the approved chauffeur companies now and can the BBC guarantee that there are none who are run by convicted child rapists?
  • Were any children abused whilst being transported by a Sinclair company working for the BBC?
  • Given all the attention on the BBC and child abuse, and with reviews about Jimmy Savile, Stuart Hall, and re-examination of child protection procedures why has the fact Niven Sinclair, who worked for the BBC for over 30 years, not been identified as a convicted child abuser?
  • Does the BBC still have any business dealings with Niven Sinclair or his companies or companies or parts thereof that used to owned by him?
  • Which company did Dave Smith, Jimmy Saviles chauffeur work for? Did he work for Sinclairs company, or were there two chauffeur companies used by the BBC that had child abusers?  Jimmy Savile chauffeur Dave Smith was ‘prolific paedophile’ with 22 convictions Telegraph [25]

The Janet Smith Review [29] [pdf download] includes information and her thoughts [29b][p461-p471 8.22] about the story of another chauffeur of 13 years who worked via a private hire company for the BBC.

This reveals that the chauffeurs did drive unaccompanied children, this particular child the driver having been suspected of being abused by Savile. The chauffeur felt pressure to hide any allegations for fear of the sack.

Who did he work for? Was he working for Niven Sinclair and was the sack a possibility as his own boss was a child abuser? This part is speculative but the BBC needs to come clean.

The story was originally from The Daily Mail [30] after the BBC had failed to publish an expose of Jimmy Savile on Newsnight. An expose eventually came a couple of days after the Mail article, from ITV in a programme called Exposure The Other Side of Jimmy Savile  [32] and was perhaps the watershed moment for child sexual abuse in the UK.
Tony Hall, Director General at the BBC, made a statement in Feb 2016 after the Janet Smith Review [31] The following were some of the things he said that they were doing

We now have a new child protection policy, shared across the industry, and a detailed procedure for complaints.
We have child protection advisers, working together across the organisation.
We have also put in place an improved whistle-blowing policy, supported by an independent investigations unit.
And we’ve brought in a wide-ranging set of measures to encourage people to raise concerns about bullying and harassment – with a confidential hotline, independent experts assigned to cases and a service to allow mediation to take place wherever possible.
We’ve also wanted to make sure that these changes were achieving what we wanted them to do. So, in March 2014, we asked some external and independent experts – the GoodCorporation – to audit our policies, to make sure they were fit for purpose and to recommend improvements.
They found that the BBC has strong child protection policies in place and that our whistle-blowing policy ranks well compared to other organisations. But they also made 53 recommendations for improvement. Of those, 51 are now complete, one is underway and in one case we have agreed to take forward what needs to be done in a different way.
Dame Janet recommends, review all our policies and procedures in light of her report. I have asked Anne Bulford, the BBC’s Managing Director of Finance and Operations to lead this work, reporting to me. That work will identify any areas where we need to do more. Anne’s work will help us make sure that is the case. And we will publish our progress in full, in July, alongside our Annual Report.
On child protection, we will work with the NSPCC to get their advice on how to help us build on what we are currently doing.
And we will, as Dame Janet asks, commission another independent audit to assess our progress, to test our systems and to see how our policies are operating in practice. This work will report in the autumn and – whatever recommendations are made – we will carry them out.
I want the BBC to do more as a programme-maker
Dame Janet says we should look carefully at three areas – a lack of cohesion in the BBC, the hierarchical nature of the management structure, and our attitudes toward ‘the talent’. These are all crucial issues – ones we are thinking about already and which we will push forward on in the coming months.
..where everyone feels able to speak truth to power.

It was said by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Maria Miller  in 2012 “It is now crucial that we understand what went wrong and how it can be put right.” Hansard [28]

Has that happened? We have had reviews, more reviews, audits, statements, changes, promised changes, but…. if we have not been told that a convicted child abuser was ferrying people round for the BBC for 30 years, then clearly we still cannot trust what the BBC has done to put things right.

If Niven Sinclair has not been identified as a convicted serial child rapist, or has been identified but that fact hidden from the public, the BBC has STILL not learnt the lessons. We still do not understand what went wrong in the BBC.

  • Anne Bulfords report having reviewed all BBC policies and procedures is due very soon any time now, in July
  • Independent Report testing systems and procedures is due to report in the autumn
  • NSPCC have/are advising BBC on child protection – What have they advised?
  • BBC to take lead on child abuse as aprogramme maker – what has happened?
  • Has the Good Corporation report audit been made public?
  • Child Protection Guidelines changed in 2002, as recorded in Hansard [28]. Child protection changes also in c. 2016 [31] They is available here [27] – Quite apart from the new guidelines, it would be helpful to show how they had changed and evolved over time.
  • Can people really speak Truth to Power? Perhaps the BBC would convince people if Meirion Jones was to be commissioned to make a programme on child sexual abuse, instead of sacking a whistleblower on the very programme that was to expose Savile, that senior management withdrew.

There are a plethora of stories about Niven Sinclair. How many are true, how many are exaggerations and how many are false is a matter of conjecture without further research. One member of the Sinclair family is reported to blame Niven for much of the myth [24]

  • Clan Sinclair Trust is a Limited Company with Charitable Status, Company number SC194021, [45] It was set up in 1998 by Niven Sinclair, Ian Sinclair, Euan Sinclair, The Earl of Caithness and The Viscount Thurso (aka John Thurso MP) [37] Niven was only a Director for only a short time 4 March – 18 July 1999 though he was still involved for several years afterwards. The library was named after him [45] . The Trust own Castle Sinclair [43] whose current patron, since 2010, is Prince Charles [42], who replaced the Queen Mother [44]. This story appears to be true.
  • Niven claimed to be a Major in the Seaforth Highlanders, and with the Kings African Rifles in Ethiopea and Burma in World War 2? [6]  He was in the Seaforth in 1945 as a 2nd Lieutenant as an emergency commission [38] army1He was still in the Seaforth in 1951 and another emergency commission as a Hon Lieutenant. [39] army2So far there is no evidence that he became a Major, nor yet that he was in Kings African Rifles.
  • Did Sinclair spend a “large part of his post World War 2 life establishing a magnificent cashew plantation in Tanzania which employed 500 persons, until he was evicted at independence” [7]. Was Sinclair really farming in Tanganika for 30 years? [6]. He was still in the Seaforth Highlanders in 1951 [39] and he was in England in 1957, that only leaves a few years at most to be a farmer. During his time in Tanganika he was sentenced for actual bodily abuse [17] If the farming story is true at all, the length of time spent is vastly exaggerated.
  • Was he a member of the Bayeye, the secret snake society of the Basakuma tribe who lived near Lake Victoria? Did he have a snake named after him, the bitus gabonica sinclairi (A Gaboon Viper), of which samples were sent to the UK by the famous Big Game Hunter and herpetologist, Constantine Ionides [7]
  • Has he really found a Templars connection to his family which landed in America 100 years before Columbus? [3]  [48]
  • Is he really a descendant of Jesus? [4]
  • Is he even really chair of the Friends of Rosslyn? [6]
  • Is there even a family tree to link Niven Sinclair to the Templars and Rossyln?
  • Is he a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (Scotland) [6]
  • Does Niven Sinclair hold any offices now and if so, do the people responsible and around him know he is a serial child rapist?

What is the truth about this serial child rapist that worked for the BBC? Is he a psychopathic fantasist?

How much money does Niven Sinclair have? Perhaps it should go to some of his victims to help them heal.

[updated 2016 Jul 19] There is a National Archives that appears to be on Niven Sinclair, see [54] National Archives is notoriously difficult to search, and his name has been redacted for some reason. However the information came via comments here [55] which someone was kind enough to pass on. I have now asked National Archives for a review [56] of the fact that his name has been redacted and that it closed for 82 years.

[Update 2016 Oct ]- I have been informed that Niven Sinclair was still abusing teenage boys in the early to mid 1990’s . He used to offer money for helping round the office and had a flat at Lime Grove.

2016 Jul 9 Freedom of Information request [47]  Niven Sinclair, Convicted Child Rapist working for the BBC

The vast majority of this article was researched by someone who wishes no credit. I merely put most of the information together in a blog.

[updated 2016 Jul 17] A mainstream journalist contacted me about the story as he was considering following it up. He said that he  do not want to do anything that would hinder my own investigations or deter my sources so wanted to check with me that would be ok. He also promised to reference me as a source. That is a good journalist.

Totally unconnnected to the above the Sunday People decided to run a story based on my work. They did not contact me. They have not credited me. They ran the story online, the link is here [50] . The journalists credited are @SimonBoyle87 @Nick_Dorman @SelbyMirror.

Alan Selby @SelbyMirror “Award-winning Sunday Mirror reporter” at least had the courage to follow me on twitter so we could at least have a more at length exchange. However he claims he was just given the information to go and interview Niven Sinclair and says that he never saw my blogpost – some research for an interview. Interestingly he says that Simon Boyle would anwer my questions about how they came across the Court appeals.

Simon Boyle “Showbiz Columnist/Editor” dissembled until finally admitting he has used my story, but appears to think it ok because he received an anonymous tip off by telephone. He has so far not answered where he found the Court appeal documents. Nick Dorman the Crime reporter has not replied.

I spend a great deal of time researching and writing  articles on child sexual abuse, with others who contribute massively and sometimes more than I do, which was the case for this article. I do this to help victims and survivors who have suffered horrendously and whose stories have been covered up by the powerful and the rich.

Most victims and survivors suffer greatly throughout their lives and never heal. They are often denied the help they need, and even the fact that the abuse happened.

I list my sources so that others may use my research to take the story further and they are not to be used for making money. It is bad enough when corporate “journalists” rip off my work off and use it to make money. It is even worse when they present it as their own and exclusive and further, they refuse to give me credit. Then when called out they hide behind the fact that some sources were public.

The bottom line is that there would be no Mirror article if it was not for my post. They know that full well. Nick Davies wote about this type of journalism, his website Flat Earth News [51] and his book Flat Earth News on Amazon [52]

Yes its partly “the system”, the “machine” we are all in, but as indiviiduals we can choose to join the machine or to oppose it when it is wrong.

What is the big deal @SimonBoyle87 @Nick_Dorman @SelbyMirror about crediting me for my work, as I credit you for yours? Is truth a one way street? Why is it ok for you to rip me and survivors off for money without even a credit?

Simon Boyles even had the gall to suggest to me “if your intentions are honourable you would be pleased” – like he understands what honourable means! Alan Selby resorted to saying  that I was suggesting a “conspiracy”, the old tactic to accuse me and deflect away from his own misddeds. Laughably Selby suggested that if I was keen to avoid any “confusion” in future that I take a more proactive approach and create a “professional” dialogue with either their newspaper or another national newspaper.

“Confusion” is his euphemism for the Sunday People stealing my story and not crediting me. Again he attempts ot put the blame on me, rather than the fact that they stole my story. Of course it would be far better if national newspaper acted honourably and credited the source of their stories, but that appears to zoom way over his head. And of course the national papers dont steal stories from each other! There is no honour amongst thieves.

It has been drawn to my attention that Alan Selby has previous  2016 Feb 14 Sell your story Alison Smith-Squire Alan Selby and a spot of byline banditry…[53]

No boys, you are ones who need to examine your consciences and your actions. Please give me due credit. Is that really too much to ask?

They remind me of 3 boys caught stealing a car. The driver avoids answering whether the car is theirs but blurts out anything he can think of. He says they were tipped off where the car was, so its ok. He then says the car is theirs because they added a horn and mirrors to it and besides the bits making up the car can be found anywhere. They all nod vigorously. He then refuses to answer any more questions about where the car bits really did actually come from. The boy in the passenger seat refuses to say anything. The little boy in the back pipes up, that he was just told what to do and did it. Thats what we do, he says. Besides, he accuses, you should have had mirrors and a horn.

What they will not do is to examine themselves. They are happy taking money and orders from someone else at the @TheSundayPeople, quite happy that their names go on a stolen story, quite happy that they give me no credit, no apology for using all my and others work that went into the story, without which they would not even have had story, quite happy to attack my integrity and say I should be happy that they stole it if my motives were sound, quite happy to tell me to be more proactive and go into cahoots with national papers first to avoid my story being stolen.

The answer to stop my story being stolen in future is to to tell me to join their band of thieves or another one! You see its my fault!! Their use of the word professional seems to be a cross between how it is used in the phrase “professional foul” and the word “criminal”.

They piss their pants whilst caught in the car, but at the end of the day they have the backing of a huge corporation who will use the money, power and statute law and the imbalance between them and a member of the public or any author, to crush any complaints, so all they have to sit tight and ignore their lack of morality for a while.

They escape with urine soaked pants, red faces and the stolen car, to commit the same crime again and again.

They will not examine themselves or their behaviour as they know it is wrong and they are cowardly. They know they work in a corrupt industry and know that to examine their consciences would mean that they have to stand up to the corruption or get out to be a moral human being.

It is easy to be a parasite and claim others work as your own, it is more honourable to credit others for their work, and your minimal contribution to be assessed for what it is. And this is the very least you should do. Its obscene that “journalists” and lawyers think its fine to make money out of child sexual abuse.

The print story laughingly labelled exclusive is here in the Sunday People 17 Jul 2016. Naturally it is sensationalised with a picture of Heath, who has nothing to do with the story apart from having been driven once by Sinclair. They even had a list of questions in my blog that they could have used, their own miserable addition to the story in the last two paragraphs.

The first will look into the allegations with regard to the item on Savile which was inappropriately pulled from “Newsnight”. The second review, to be undertaken when the police advise it is appropriate to do so, will focus on Jimmy Savile himself. Thirdly, although the BBC’s child protection policy was overhauled in 2002, the review will also focus on whether its policy is fit for purpose and what lessons can be learned. This review will be assisted by an independent expert. An additional piece of work will look at the very troubling allegations of sexual harassment at the BBC that have come to light in recent weeks. The director-general will give further details later in the week. These are undoubtedly very serious matters, which have wide-ranging implications for a number of public institutions—not just the BBC. It is now crucial that we understand what went wrong and how it can be put right.

[31] 2016 Feb 26 BBC Tony Hall response to the Report of the Dame Janet Smith Review  http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/statements/tony-hall-dame-janet-smith

part edited..

Let me now turn to action – to what we have been doing and what we are going to do.
Dame Janet makes one overarching recommendation: for the BBC to review and independently audit all the policies we have in place that help people raise concerns and complaints. We will do that.
But let me also be clear: since I became Director-General, we haven’t been standing still – we have made this a priority – and there is much we have done already:
We now have a new child protection policy, shared across the industry, and a detailed procedure for complaints.
We have child protection advisers, working together across the organisation.
We have also put in place an improved whistle-blowing policy, supported by an independent investigations unit.
And we’ve brought in a wide-ranging set of measures to encourage people to raise concerns about bullying and harassment – with a confidential hotline, independent experts assigned to cases and a service to allow mediation to take place wherever possible.
We’ve also wanted to make sure that these changes were achieving what we wanted them to do. So, in March 2014, we asked some external and independent experts – the GoodCorporation – to audit our policies, to make sure they were fit for purpose and to recommend improvements.
They found that the BBC has strong child protection policies in place and that our whistle-blowing policy ranks well compared to other organisations. But they also made 53 recommendations for improvement. Of those, 51 are now complete, one is underway and in one case we have agreed to take forward what needs to be done in a different way.
So there are many things we have done, and there are many more things we will have to do. Because we must never be complacent.
We will, as Dame Janet recommends, review all our policies and procedures in light of her report, and that of Dame Linda.
I have asked Anne Bulford, the BBC’s Managing Director of Finance and Operations to lead this work, reporting to me. That work will identify any areas where we need to do more.
I am committed – we are all committed – to creating a more open BBC where everyone has the confidence to raise issues and believe that something will be done about them.
I want the BBC to be a great place to work, a place where people come to do the best work of their lives.
Anne’s work will help us make sure that is the case. And we will publish our progress in full, in July, alongside our Annual Report.
But there are some things we can commit to today.
On whistle blowing, we will launch a campaign to do more to raise the awareness of staff to what they can do – and must do – and also where they can turn to for help.
On child protection, we will work with the NSPCC to get their advice on how to help us build on what we are currently doing.
And we will, as Dame Janet asks, commission another independent audit to assess our progress, to test our systems and to see how our policies are operating in practice. This work will report in the autumn and – whatever recommendations are made – we will carry them out.
But I also want to make a further commitment. I want the BBC to do more as a programme-maker – following on from the fine work done in this area in the past by Dame Esther Rantzen with Childline. We will, for example, work with the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, NAPAC, to raise awareness of the issues surrounding abuse.
On BBC One we have already commissioned a documentary called ‘The Abused’. This gives the opportunity for many survivors who came forward as part of Operation Yewtree to share what happened to them. I want us to be a forum for a national debate about child abuse and about how we can do more to support survivors.
For me, reflecting on both these reports, the importance of getting the culture right in our organisation is key.
When I came back to the BBC three years ago, at a time of crisis – this crisis – I could see that we needed to change. I visited teams from all over the UK who told me how proud they were to work for the BBC. How committed they are to the BBC. But, they told me that we needed to change.
We have changed, we are changing. But we have more to do.
Dame Janet says we should look carefully at three areas – a lack of cohesion in the BBC, the hierarchical nature of the management structure, and our attitudes toward ‘the talent’. These are all crucial issues – ones we are thinking about already and which we will push forward on in the coming months.
We are, for a start, building a simpler BBC with fewer divisions, fewer boards and fewer layers between the top of the organisation and the front line, with senior leaders who are more visible, accountable and approachable.
Where we work together as one team – for one BBC – with management that’s enabling and supports creativity. Management that demonstrates zero tolerance of bullying and harassment. Where the values that all of us who work here believe in – are the values we live, day by day.
And where everyone feels able to speak truth to power.

  2. goody says:

    Perhaps the reason Niven Sinclair is protected is because of his relationship with Malcolm Ian Sinclair, 20th Earl of Caithness, with whom he is linked via the Sinclair clan businesses/organizations.

    Malcolm Ian Sinclair is very closely linked with the royal family:

    Malcolm Ian Sinclair – Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister invited him to join her government. He started as a Whip and Lord in Waiting to The Queen, he is a close friend of the Prince of Wales. Ian, the Earl, chief of the clan Sinclair, was a childhood friend of the prince and Princess Anne.

    Six days ago Lord Alexander James Berriedale was convicted of under-age sex with girl, 15. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Lord+Smutty%3B+Six+days+ago+Lord+Alexander+James+Berriedale+was%E2%80%A6-a0117755452
    The earl has been a trustee of Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust (The Queen Mother’s Home In CAITHNESS) since its inception in 1996.

    Ian Sinclair had named the Clan Sinclair Study Centre at Noss Head after Niven Sinclair who had donated to the centre over 400 books, some very rare and irreplaceable

    THE CLAN SINCLAIR TRUST
    What is the Clan Sinclair Trust?
    The Trust, a Limited Company with Charitable Status, was set up in 1998 by:
    • Niven Sinclair;
    • Ian Sinclair;
    • Euan Sinclair;
    • The Earl of Caithness;
    • The Viscount Thurso aka John Thurso MP, (cousin of Ian). – CEO of the Champneys Group (yes, that Champneys – Savile et al)

    Nowadays a number of Sinclairs, like others, all around the world have been and are Knights Templar Societies.
    Ian Sinclair is one and founded the Prince Henry St. Clair Preceptory and Commandary in 2001 to which Niven Sinclair kindly donated a number of items.
    At that time Ian Sinclair was associated with another group of Knights Templar, who had their Preceptory headquarters at Rosslyn Chapel, known as Militi Templi Scotia (MTS). In May 2004 that association terminated and Ian Sinclair set up his own group called Scottish Knight Templars in May 2004.

    Aristocrat on sex offenders’ register Earl’s son admits having underage liaison
    THE son and heir of the Earl of Caithness was placed on the sex offenders’ register yesterday after being convicted of having underage sex
    Alexander James Berriedale, 23, whose father is a former government minister and close friend of the Prince of Wales, was seen having sex last year with the 15-year-old girl. The case came to court after a concerned passer-by saw them having sex in the road next to an open-air swimming pool in the town.
    Berrie, educated at the pounds 2000-aterm Maidwell Hall School in Northampton, met the girl when he arrived in Wick looking for a job.
    Lord Berriedale is heir to the ancestral seat at nearby Girnigoe Castle, which the Clan Society hopes to preserve at the cost of pounds 1million.
    He is the son and heir of Malcolm Sinclair the 20th Earl of Caithness, a friend of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.

    In January 1994, Lord Caithness, Ian Malcolm Sinclair, resigned from the Government following the suicide of his wife, Diana, after news broke that he had been having an affair. In 2004, he married Leila C. Jenkins in Rosslyn Chapel. The Earl filed for divorce a year later.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_Sinclair,_20th_Earl_of_Caithness

    The tragedy marked the apogee of the sleaze and scandal that engulfed the government of John Major. Within hours of Countess Caithness’s death, her husband – a childhood friend of Princess Anne – had resigned from his post as Transport Minister in the House of Lords.
    But, at last, it seems the man whose life has been dominated by this heartbreaking episode has found happiness.

    But intriguingly it is not with the woman with whom he was conducting an affair at the time of his wife’s suicide.
    Yet even as it emerged that, at 55, Malcolm Caithness is to marry a wealthy American banker, the controversy over his private life showed no sign of abating.
    Yesterday’s announcement that he has become engaged to Leila Jenkins has shocked close friends and members of his late wife’s family who always blamed the Earl for her death.
    On the eve of their 19th wedding anniversary, Lady Diana Caithness – the mother of his two children – put one of her husband’s shotguns to her head and pulled the trigger. At the time, Caithness was having a relationship with divorcee, Jan Fitzalan Howard.

    Rich Miss Jenkins, who although in her 50s, has never married.
    She is the high-powered president of Locke Capital Management, a global investment firm with offices in Dallas and New York.
    A Harvard graduate, she has been an investment manager for nearly 30 years and shares her time shuttling between her New York flat and the Earl’s London home. Miss Jenkins tells me she and the Earl have yet to set a date for their wedding.
    “I’m not really in any position to give any comment because that’s my fiance’s department,” she said from her New York apartment.

    In 2010 Niven Sinclair had a falling out with Ian Sinclair, it seems:

    In 2010, the chief of the Clan Sinclair was advertised on a third party internet site as the host for a £7,588 UK trip, most of which was to be in Scotland, including a tour of Westminster and the chance to meet “various colleagues” including the Speaker. The trip was to raise funds for a charity, the Clan Sinclair Trust, but a disgruntled former donor (Niven Sinclair) to the Trust complained to the House of Lords Commissioner for Standards Paul Kernaghan that this would breach the rules on use of Westminster facilities. The tour was cancelled before the complaint was made but the Commissioner said the Earl would have breached the rules on use of Westminster facilities had it gone ahead. The Earl apologised and promised not to do it again.

    Lord Caithness served as a House of Lords government whip under Margaret Thatcher from 1984 to 1985. He then moved to the Department of Transport as a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, serving until 1986 when he became a Minister of State at the Home Office. In 1988 he was once again moved, this time to be Minister of State at the Department of Environment. In 1989, he became Paymaster-General.
    In 1990, Lord Caithness was again shuffled to the Foreign Office as a Minister of State, and then in 1992 back to the Department of Transport

    Tories in Turmoil: Parents bitter over rift that led to ‘suicide’: Will Bennett and Tony Scase report on the repercussions of the Caithness death

    12 January 1994

    THE PARENTS of Lady Caithness, who shot herself last Saturday, made no secret yesterday of their bitterness over the relationship of her husband with Jan Fitzalan Howard.

    They revealed that their daughter had been desperately unhappy about the state of her marriage to Lord Caithness.

    She died the day before their 19th wedding anniversary and the next day her husband resigned as Minister for Aviation and Shipping,
    Mrs Coke said: ‘She was very upset, naturally anybody would have been. She was the absolute opposite to being depressive.’ The couple said that they last spoke to her on Friday, and at that time she appeared to have no intention of committing suicide.
    Mrs Fitzalan Howard, who is in her early forties, is a former secretary to the Princess Royal and to Princess Michael of Kent. She has also worked for two leading Conservatives, Sir Gordon Reece, a key adviser to Baroness Thatcher when she was Prime Minister, and Lord McAlpine, the former party treasurer.
    Born Jan Walters, the daughter of a naval captain from Tunbridge Wells, Kent, she married Thomas Fitzalan Howard, an Army officer and the nephew of the Duke of Norfolk in 1977.

    He is now a Lieutenant Colonel in Major Coke’s old regiment, the Scots Guards.

    • milamba. That will be interesting. If there is any part that is defamatory and untrue, I will of course change it. Which parts are defamatory and untrue? Please give your name rather than comment anonymously as it is essential that I know who is claiming defamation. Please contact me within 24 hours, otherwise I will take this as bullying and intimidation for which you will be charged £500 per day at this stage.

    • milamba I ask you again to contact me to say which parts are defamatory and untrue? I ask again for you to give your name. I ask again that you contact me within 24 hours, otherwise you agree that you have attempted to bully and intimate with no legal foundation and agree to pay £500 per day for doing so.

    • Milamba This is the third and final time. I ask you to tell me which parts of this article are defamatory and untrue. Unless you apologise for your bullying threat with no legal foundation, I will unmask you. Further the £500 per day that you will be charged will rise to £1000 per day.

    • As I am still under your unfounded threat of “public defamation” and you de facto refuse to retract it or rebut my statemetns, despite 3 opportunities to do so, I will out you as Margaret Stokes milamba@milamba.com. Is it true that you are the cousin of Niven Sinclair and researched his family tree? And researched it incorrectly as it turns out?

      • Mila says:

        There is absolutely nothing incorrect about my research into Niven’s family tree, and yes, I am his cousin. My research has never been and never will be published, with the exception of small areas that I have shared with other people. Most of the misinformation and areas that are wrong came from Fiona Sinclair, and by the way, “outing” me is illegal and I have reported you for this.

        • Outing you as the person who issues anonymous false defamation is not illegal. It is easy and public to find by following your email address, so good luck with that. I understand that you have not accepted yet the extent that your friend and financial benefactor Niven Sinclair was a child rapist.Paedphiles are good at deceiving people. He fooled you and you are sore. Please stop trying to take it out on the messenger and look to your own circumstances and try and overcome your cognitive dissonance due to what you might find, and face up to the truth.

          • Mila says:

            You are so full of vindictiveness that you can’t see the forest for the trees. I’m not sore. I grieve for my generous, kind, loving cousin who gave so much and asked for so little in return. Yes, he made some mistakes when he was an alcoholic and in a time when homosexuality was not accepted. If you look for the original arrest records you’ll find that it was by an undercover police officer manning gay meeting places. Not a child, an adult. These days it’s called entrapment. Most of the boys statements were discredited, however that’s not the issue really – he was imprisoned for being homosexual. He paid. He did his time and he remade himself – a concept I think that is beyond you. He never drank another drop of alcohol in his life, but you killed him. His death will be always be on your conscience. I’m a survivor of a child sexual abuse and believe you me, no-one has been allowed into my children’s lives who has in any way any sign of being a pedophile because pedophiles never change and they never stop. Niven wasn’t a pedophile. Face facts, you’re on a crusade to destroy people – well start picking the right people, like Cardinal Pell. or better yet, get offline and stop destroying lives.

          • I am very sorry you are a victim of child sexual abuse. I am not full of vindictiveness whatsoever. I have been contacted by victims of Nivens from before his time at the bbc and during. For you to try and deny that he abused when they tell me otherwise appears misinformed on your part, you cannot possibly know if others were abused. Please stop being abusive or
            i can stop you posting at any time.
            Niven may well have been picked on by the police for being a homosexual, of course that happens, however that is not what he was convicted for. If you have court transcripts then the truth would benefit from their release.
            His death will never be on my conscience. I am very glad i told the truth about Niven the child abuser. He died a year later, with victims of his never having got justice, but they thank me for my article, as it destroyed the myth that Niven tried to create by his untrue stories and some of the truth was told.

    It appears as though Janet Smith’s probe into the BBC also did not look into Jimmy Savile’s long time friend fr Denis O’Connell who had also worked at the BBC and who was Vice Postulator of the Cause for the Beatification of the Blessed Margaret Sinclair. Savile was a frequent visitor to Denis O’Connell’s church and parish house when Savile was at the BBC.

    Canon Denis O’Connell’s association with the BBC started with his posting in London for two years where he worked as a consultant on Catholic broadcasting making many radio and TV appearances

    Sir Jimmy Savile OBE KCSG was a frequent visitor (to St Patrick’s Parish, Kilsyth.) during the period when he had a hit TV show ‘Jim’ll Fix It’ or was in between presenting ‘Top of the Pops’ or hosting a show on Radio 1 and could often be seen at 10 O’clock Mass of a morning, sporting a kilt. You could always tell when he was in Kilsyth as his white jaguar car was parked outside the Parish House.

    It was Jimmy’s mother who had originally got to know Fr O’Connell in his role as Vice Postulator of the Cause for the Beatification of (at that time) the Blessed Margaret Sinclair.

    Jimmy Savile and Fr O’Connell formed a close friendship when Jimmy’s mother died which lasted until the then ‘Canon’ O’Connell himself died in 1997. It was in support of Fr. O’Connell’s Community Games that Jimmy first sported his famous half Celtic half Rangers top which he often replicated on his other Scottish visits for charity marathon running and so on. In return for Jimmy’s frequent visit’s to Kilsyth and tireless fundraising,

    Fr. O’Connell built a fountain in the front piazza at St Patrick’s in his name to recognise his charitable work.

    Fr O’Connell staged a free open air concert in Kilsyth in 1976 by the Bay City Rollers

    Fr Denis O’Connell and Fr Keith O’Brien were both friends with Jimmy Savile

    Cardinal Keith O’Brien, who sensationally resigned from his post amid allegations of “inappropriate acts” had bragged of his friendship with Savile in the past and photos have now emerged of the pair posing with young children.

    He told the Scottish Catholic Observer: “My friendship with Jimmy Savile developed over many years since I was assistant priest in St Patrick’s Parish, Kilsyth.

  18. Remarkable. I googled “Niven Sinclair” as I saw one message on the Clan chatline noting his death
    and knowing his interest and support for the Clan I found this rather strange. Indeed it was a surprise when I googled him to learn of his criminal background. I am the “Marc Anderson ” referred to in the article. I met Niven on four trips to the UK , at Lime Grove once, and then three times at Haslemere at his elegant country house “Aldersmead”. I used some of his information in drawing up my family history and you correctly detail this. If I undertake another edition I will certainly have to make some changes by omitting much of the info he gave me. He did state he was in the KAR and farmed nuts on the Rovumo until Tanganikya’s independence when he left for London with 100 pounds in his pocket. One thing I am certain of is that his personally commissioned Sinclair family tree ( put together after 2000) indicates I am a distant cousin of his, and this is definately not the case. He claimed many other people as his relation.
    Sad to learn of this sad history and damage caused, and I hope his soul can rest in peace.

  19. Thanks for that information Mark. If there is any official confirmation, please post it as there are victims for whom this will mean some sort of relief if not closure.
