Hancock Victim: “It’s Disgusting That No-One Listened to Me”

Portsmouth News have further detail of the heartbreaking pleas made by a vulnerable young woman pursued by Mike Hancock that, as revealed by Guido in the Sun in January, were ignored by the government. “Annie” sent letters, under her real name, to Nick Clegg and the other party leaders, but never received a reply. In March 2011 she wrote to Clegg:

Speaking out this morning, “Annie” says:

“It angers me. It’s disgusting that no-one listened to me all those years ago. It’s a bit too late for them to jump on the bandwagon as I have been tormented for all of these years. I’m angry that some never even bothered to reply to me. The system of dealing with people with mental health problems needs changing. It’s terrible.”

We know the letter was received by Downing Street, but still her cries for help went unanswered…

    This Lady has and is let down by the whole establishment. WHY? says:

    This has to be the oddest thing to hit Westminster in years.

    By Odd I mean the whole political class and the police did not take it seriously. And given the gravity of the case, neither has the media.

    Oh, really? says:

    The person with the mental health disorder (Narcissistic personality disorder) is Hancock.


    Those with narcissistic personality disorder believe that they’re superior to others and have little regard for other people’s feelings. But behind this mask of ultra-confidence lies a fragile self-esteem, vulnerable to the slightest criticism…

    Hancock to a T, I think.

    Mornington Crescent says:

    Why? I’ll tell you why…

    …because this is the same Politico-Meejah Establishment that let the likes of Sovile (who was also, it now app’ears, a necrophile), Cyril Smith and Stuart Hall to run riot for years.

    …this is the same Establishment who thinks it’s absolutely fine for MPs to cruise for gay sex on the web posing in only their manky underpants. Or to snog and to shove their hands down other men’s trousers while rat-arsed on subsidised booze and label those who disapprove as h0m0phobes.

    The whole place is a fucking shit-swamp of depravity.

    Out of a population of 64,000,000 there are only 650 MP’s.
    And they still manage to find room for c*nts like Hancock?
    Either this country is full of c*nts or the selection process is deeply flawed.

    Life confuses me says:

    Bit of both but mainly the latter. The selection process is not fit for purpose. The continued parachuting and multiple members of the same family being selected to stand are examples of it’s corrupt nature. We also have the gerrymandering of the process by the Unions.

    Well said Mornington.
    Sadly a vulnerable child in Jersey has far less chance than a young woman in Portsmouth.


    Anyone who fights the cover up is taken down. The Health Minister, the Chief of Police, anti-paedophile politicians.


    But Jersey is just a microcosm of the UK and this is a cross-party problem with a cross-party solution.

    The Portsmouth Liberal Democrats.

    Chaired by one Simon Dodd, whose wife runs the Lib Office (paid), often alongside the campaign manager Richard Cole, whose wife is keen to chair the committee that will likely select their personal friend Gerald Vernon-Jackson as the next parliamentary candidate for Portsmouth South.

    I got trapped into an abusive relationship with a slightly older man back in 2010 and I have suffered shame, ridicule and a sense of defilement ever since. People say it was my choice but ‘Dave’ took advantage of my weaknesses. He could see that I had no backbone and was integrity-challenged. As a youngster, I’d been surrounded by a group of wealthy, sandal-wearing, vegan soap-dodgers and it, like, messed with my head, man. I was so willing to trust Dave and he knew it. I even believed his promises of House of Lords reform and being allowed to do fairly important stuff!

    Please help me!

    They all shield each other because they know that when the shit really hits the fan and the files are opened to the Public by UKIP, the Thames will flow red, just like Enoch’s Greek foresaw the Tiber but it will be their political careers that will be finished.
    This might be the REAL reason that the Establishment daren’t even think that a truly hostile takeover might happen. Whitehall could turn into Cairo on the celebrated “Ash Wednesday” when Army HQ started burning its records in anticipation of Rommel getting the Alamein Line.
    I think we should have the public document repositories sealed before the next Election to protect them for exposure.

    Can you not see that the Tory party, and spoon face, are part of the political system which is parasitically living off your hard work? They are benefit claimants themselves.

    Ziz says:

    Perhaps our learned friends could advise.

    Clearly, this lady approached Clegg in good faith seeking help. Just as clearly , she received the blank wall response.

    Is there a legal case for a malpractice action against Clegg?

  89. 89
    Eye up lad says:

    Clegg should not be the target – his back office are clearly useless and since the whole lot of them in the Lib Dems are more a cult than a political party – who is surprised the gormless Cleggmeister did not respond. No. The real focus of attention now should be the Hampshire CID. Given that Hancock has put his hands up – how is it that the cops in Portsmouth kicked this poor woman’s complaints into touch so quickly? Moreover, given that Hancock has given a virtual mea culpa – why has plod not visited the Spire Hospital in Southampton where Mr. H is allegedly being treated for all kinds of health problems?

  90. 90
    Ziz says:

    “Clegg should not be the target ” but blame the back office. ie more of the blank wall. Same old attitude and same old reaction . Trying to cover for Clegg? when he – prima facie-is clearly at fault. She went to Clegg in good fait, in the first instance, and he did not want to know.

    I suspect that a court action might well clarify matters as to his responsibilty.

    Well you may well be right on most or indeed everything you say Growler but if so things have changed from the Eighties/Nineties when even the riffest of the raff could write in to a Dept Or No 10 and the communication HAD TO BE be logged as a “Treat Official ” i e a minion would concoct a reply admittedly full of cliched flim flam but that letter nevertheless would need to be signed by the Minister /Sec of State responsible..

    This document would then stand as an official line of policy or orientation on the particular subject matter involved and could be quoted in other forums as required.

    Sad if this M O has now been “binned”.

    Mycroft says:

    I would suggest that the blind eye turning is far more sinister than what most here would suppose.

    So… lets play ‘Having Influence’… a party game.

    It’s the 1960s there is a , it’s a time of liberty and fun.

    The bloody big Corporation owns lots of cameras and has lots of men who carry them around.

    They are hob-knobbing constantly in the presence of politicians, cops and the great and the good… and the not so good… and the odd snap is compromising.

    The bloody big Corporation is also riddled with people who are also indulging in the sexual revolution… enthusiastically.

    Now every day in the bloody big Corporation is Xmas, there is money, prestige and plenty of sex in the mix.

    To expose all the wrong doing and in so doing change all of them from feasters at the Xmas table to the the feast itself was not going to happen.

    It started with the Duchess of Argyll scandal, not Profumo, and it has simply continued.

    This way no-one gets roasted…

    Unless someone gets nosey and actually doesn’t know about the sleight of hand… Savile was spiked once only to have another party unaware of the ‘arrangement’ went and blew it.

    60s and 70s… sex
    80s and 90s… cocaine/drugs
    00s and 10s… corruption/money.

    The cause changes… but the failings and faults of humans is as predictable as our passing of faeces out of our bodies.

    The sh’t storm we are in at the moment is because the bloody big Corporation has for a long time been constipated.
