In the News … Sex offence artist sentence review The attorney general has begun a review into whether the sentence imposed on artist Graham Ovenden was too lenient. Ovenden, 70, from Cornwall, was spared a prison term for historical sex offences against children. He was given a sentence of 12 months, suspended for two years, at Plymouth Crown Court on Tuesday. A spokesman for the attorney general, Dominic Grieve, said his office had received several requests to review the sentence.
FIVE AND A HALF YEARS FOR RUNAWAY TEACHER Do you think of the five and half years handed to pervy teacher Jeremy Forrest who ran away with a 15-year-old pupil is a bit harsh when Stuart Hall only got two weeks prison for each of his 13 victims? And serial child abuser Graham Ovenden didn’t go to jail at all?
If Jeremy Forrest had elite chums like serial child abuser Graham Ovenden had Lord McAlpine, then he would be a free man now.
Jeremy Forrest MORE EVIL THAN PAEDO PAINTER? Teacher Jeremy Forrest is to be convicted of abducting a 15-year-old girl and faces jail, is he a worse man than pedophile painter Graham Ovenden, who sexually abused girls as young as six? Yes Forrest abused his position of trust, yes he had sex with an underage girl and yes he deserves jail. But Ovenden got a suspended sentence for fiddling six kids after the judge said his tarnished reputation was punishment enough. Who is the biggest sicko?
Getting away with it. Spivey / UK paedos exposed .com (click) When Judge Graham Cottle gave the elite protected paedophile artist Graham Ovenden a derisory 12 month suspended prison sentence for child abuse stretching as far back to at least 1970, I made mention that Cottle had been specifically selected to be the trial judge. It would now seem that Judge Anthony Russell was specifically selected for Stuart Hall. You see, as well as giving Hall a paltry 15 months, Russell was also responsible for the following sentences: December 2009: A PAEDOPHILE who had sex with a 14-year-old girl has walked free from court. Dean Seedle, 33, had sex with the youngster on numerous occasions. Judge Anthony Russell QC gave Seedle a suspended sentence March 2006: In 2006, Judge Russell gave 23 year old Aaron Porter a community order for child abduction involving a young girl in Accrington and having indecent images of a child. In 2008, Porter broke the terms of this order and went back in front of judge Russell. But inste ...

Graham Ovenden, the artist who abused girls, and forced them to pose for the paintings Lord McAlpine later bought, escapes jail. Who knew?
Today appears to be 'The Day Today', as coverage of middle-of-the-range sex offender Graham Ovenden's trial informs us that he lives at 'Barley Splatt, an estate and neo-gothic mansion deep in the heart of Bodmin Moor', and that 'among supporters of Ovenden in court was the explorer Robin Hanbury-Tenison, who also lives on Bodmin Moor.' I wonder what Ted Maul would have made of it.

Brentwood, Essex, 1 May 2013 – Ford has invited all 100 of its Centenary Blue Oval Scholars to the Dunton Technical Centre in Essex, to engage with their mentors and to experience the latest automotive technologies. The Blue Oval Centenary Scholarship programme was announced in May 2011 to encourage a new generation of engineers, scientists and innovators, and to mark 100 years of Ford’s operations in Britain. Through 12 leading universities across the UK, 100 undergraduate students on a selection of engineering, science, manufacturing and technology courses, were awarded scholarships worth a total of £1 million over a three-year period. As the end of the Blue Oval scholars’ first academic year approaches, they, along with university staff, were able to visit Dunton’s advanced research and engineering centre in Essex, which includes a state-of-the-art environmental test facility. The students also met with Ford engineers and technical staff to gain an in-depth understanding of product development ...
