Robert Banks, former MP, allegedly part of Westminster Paedophile Network

This article is from Lux and Justitia Robert Banks MP (former) [1] based on Scallywag articles.

It was not a name that is familiar to me in connection with child abuse, so post it for others information.

Robert George Banks MP (former)

1937 Records indicate Robert George Banks was born on 18 January 1937.

RobertBanks-MP

As well as serving in Parliament as an MP (1974–1997), it is reported that Banks’ other career titles have included publishing executive, Royal Navy reserve officer, and partner in an investment company (Lloyd’s?). Further, Banks was in the past been described as a land-owning “horticultural nurseryman and farmer”, possibly owning land in Suffolk.

1974–1997 Banks entered Parliament as the Conservative MP for Harrogate in 1974. Banks would remain Harrogate’s MP until 1997 when he stepped down, although he never lived in the constituency, according to reports.

RobertBanksMP-1995

1987 Banks attended a Yorkshire Television luncheon with other guests including two alleged paedophiles, David Nicholson and Leon Brittan.

1992 Banks reportedly made an “unofficial” visit to Sudan with two parliamentary colleagues, Michael Colvin, who died in an unusual fire at his house in 2000, and Thomas Michael “Tom” Cox.

1995-1996 Banks was reported to own a house in Ripon which he had up for sale as of 1995. That same year, it was reported that Banks also had a second home in Suffolk (“his main home”). In 1996, Banks reportedly owned a flat in London Docklands. During at least part of the 1990s, according to the Scallywag journal, Banks was also a tenant in London’s Dolphin Square complex.

It is not known in which year Banks moved into his Dolphin Square flat, or in which year he moved out (assuming he ever did move out).

A person called “Robert George Banks” (presumably the former MP) appears in the past to have registered companies using the address: 807 Hood House, Dolphin Square SW1V 3NL. Companies registered to this address in the past have included ‘Credit Management Resources Ltd’ and ‘Wall Luxury Essentials’.

Banks was seen infrequently by Harrogate constituents when he was their MP, being locally dubbed “the invisible man” according to reports. In addition, according to the Yorkshire Post, Banks “never felt the need for an address in the [Harrogate] constituency during 22 years in the job.”

1997 Banks became a new director of Cyber TV in 1997, the Sunday Mirror reports. This fits with a statement Banks had made some two years earlier, to the effect that he wished to return to business after leaving Parliament.

2015 Banks’ current place of residence is possibly Suffolk, given that Banks once owned land in the county (and may still), or the London area.

Allegations:

  1. Robert Banks was significantly involved in the Westminster paedophile network along with lobbyists Ian Greer and Derek Laud and a number of politicians and VIPs. This is according to the investigative journal Scallywag. Vulnerable male children were trafficked by the network from care homes in North Wales and elsewhere to locations including Dolphin Square in Pimlico. Moreover, the Westminster paedophile network organised ‘paedophile parties’ at locations including apartments at Dolphin Square, where coerced and trafficked underage boys are said to have been assaulted and raped by MPs and other prominent individuals.
  2. Banks is identified as being the named tenant of the Dolphin Square flat in which, on the evening of 14th November 1992, a ‘paedophile party’ took place, organised by the network described above. Banks apparently took part in sexually assaulting and/or raping underage boys at the ‘paedophile party’. Parliamentary colleagues also at the 14th November 1992 ‘paedophile party’ are said to have included MPs Michael Portillo, Peter Lilley, David Nicholson, Edward Leigh, Alistair Cooke, Michael Brown and others. The source of the allegations against Robert Banks is Anthony Lillis, who himself was at the 14th November 1992 ‘paedophile party’ for part of the evening (though Lillis claims that he left early). Lillis has indicated that he was employed by Banks at the time of the ‘paedophile party’ as Banks’ parliamentary researcher. The day following the 14th November 1992 ‘paedophile party’ – i.e. on 15th November 1992 – Lillis alleges that Banks threatened him not to tell anyone about what took place at the ‘paedophile party’ of the previous night.
