The status of this story is enhanced further today as it becomes clear that PM David Cameron
will be personally meeting with the supposed family of Anuj. News just in from the BBC:
"Prime Minister David Cameron, who is visiting the North West, has said he would be happy to meet Mr Bidve's parents to speak about their son's death. Mr Bidve said they would definitely like to meet him.
Mr Cameron said: 'They haven't made that request - quite understandably they want to come and see where their son was killed, what happened at the end of his life, and I hope the Manchester police are giving them every facility to do that.
'I have huge sympathy for them - if they make that sort of request I would do so.'
He said it was 'an absolutely horrific act' that had taken their son away.
'It is unacceptable to have this sort of crime going on in our country,' he added."Another interesting nugget from the same article:
"Prof Mark E Smith, vice-chancellor of Lancaster University, said it had provided financial assistance to the family and would hold a memorial ceremony for Mr Bidve later in January.
He said: "The university was represented at the candlelit vigil held in Salford last week and a memorial book has been set up for Anuj in Graduate College which will be sent to his family as a tribute to their son. The university is discussing with the family a fitting memorial."
Image of Mark E Smith to be found here on the University of Warwick website: According to this article from Lancaster University itself,
Mark E Smith has recently joined from the University of Warwick.
This reminds me of the condolence book opened at the University of Oregon for the 'vicsim' of the Norwegian false flag at Utoya, Kjersti Berg Sand, who the perps claimed to be an exchange student at the law school there in 2009.
There is a detailed biography for Mark E Smith on the Lancaster University website, here:Mark Smith was born and brought up in Suffolk. He read Natural Sciences at Churchill College, University of Cambridge and then a PhD (Physics) at the University of Warwick. He left academia being an application scientist for Bruker Analytische Messtechnik, Germany, and then research scientist CSIRO Division of Materials Scientist. He returned to the UK as first lecturer and then reader in solid-state NMR, University of Kent before becoming reader in physics at the University of Warwick where he went on to be a professor of physics. He is a former secretary of the British Radiofrequency Spectroscopy Group and Royal Society of Chemistry reporter on solid-state NMR. He has wide ranging research interests in developing and applying solid-state NMR techniques to inorganic materials. In terms of senior management Mark was also Director of the Centre for Magnetic Resonance.
His research interests are solid state NMR of inorganic materials, particularly those showing disorder and he collaborates broadly including with industry. Smith has published more than 260 papers and has written a research monograph on solid state NMR of inorganic materials.
Mark Smith was previously the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the University of Warwick looking after all academic resourcing issues. Mark has extensive experience of senior committees and has previously been Pro-Vice-Chancellor Research and Chair of the Faculty of Science.
He holds external roles as chair of the CLRN (West Midlands, South), is on the Board of the UK Research Reserve, is a member of EPSRC's Strategic Advisory Team on Infrastructure and is a member of the West Midlands Innovation and Technology Council.
On a side note, the article reminds us how Mr Bidve was on a festive visit to Manchester with a group of university friends when he was shot at about 01:30 GMT
. He died in hospital but at present I'm unable to find any record of which hospital he was allegedly taken to.Other Perps?
* Prosecutor Ben Southam
told the court the case had to be sent to Manchester Crown Court as Mr Stapleton was charged with murder.
* Nazir Afzal
, the Crown Prosecution Service's chief prosecutor in the north-west. Afzal even has his own imdb page! Now an OBE (Queen's New Years Honours list, 2002), he is a National Director of the UK's Crown Prosecution Service and according to the imdb profile, "one of its most celebrated advocates." He has starred in quite a few television series, it appears, from Law and Order UK (2002) to Survivor (2010). According to his LinkedIn page, here, he is advisor to the BBC, ITV, KUDOS and SKY.
* GMP Assistant Chief Constable Dawn Copley.
From the Greater Manchester Police's own website,
a biography of Copley: Copley joined GMP in June 2010 from Lancashire Constabulary. She has 23 years' police service, all of which had previosly been within Lancashire, where she has had extensive experience across a range of uniform, detective and corporate roles. Over the last five years she has been the Operations Manager at Southern Division, responsible for all operational policing there, the Divisional Commander of the Specialist Operations Division based at HQ, and the Head of Sustaining Excellence which is the Constabulary's Organisational Change Programme. Dawn has a Master of Science Degree in Police Leadership and Management from the University of Leicester.
* It is worth noting that Copley reports to Peter Fahy
, Chief Constable, who has chaired the ACPO Race and Diversity Business Area for four years, leading work on meeting the recommendation of the CRE investigation into the Police Service and taking forward work on a number of policy areas including community cohesion, hate crime and fairness in the criminal justice system
. Other reseachers have found that he has links to the UK-based Fabian Socialist thinktank Common Purpose.
Some images of the duo together:
However, Copley is confirmed by a number of news sources as having "overall command of the inquiry," so it seems certain that she is implicated in this deception. See the link here at North Wales Weekly News, which echoes other reports across the UK press.
On another side note, the ACPO Race and Diversity Business Area has also been headed up by Chief Constable Stephen Otter of Devon & Cornwall Police, which is well known for its associations with IBM through the company South-West One Ltd. (although as far as I can work out it is NOT owned by them, as mistakenly claimed on other websites). This is a description of the programme according to the ACPO website:The ACPO equality diversity and human rights business area leads the development of police strategy in this area on behalf of all forces. This is a critical area of business for the police service as we aim to secure the trust and confidence of all communities and build a service which reflects the communities we serve. This business area has 11 portfolios, each of which is headed up by a police officer of ACPO rank.
•Religion and belief
•Gypsies and travellers
•Mental health and disability
•Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual
There is also an ACPO document available here, in which the authors admit to a consensus reached in summer 2008 between itself and the Home Office,
that it would be desirable to use a paper by Demos (Marxist thinktank) and the National Association of Muslim Police, called 'Diversity in Modern Policing,' in addition to a report from the openly Marxist Runnymede Trust, 'Stephen Lawrence Inquiry: 10 years On: An Analysis of the Literature,' as guidelines to policing in future.
Sir Hugh Orde has served as ACPO President, Rob Garnham as the Chairman of APA, and David Hanson MP as Minister of State for Policing, Crime and Counter-Terrorism at the Home Office (2008) - all three are named as key agents in this consultation process three years ago.
