Catholic school under fire today but also in the past!

School’s dark past revealed by local Southport author, Pat Regan …

Our Lady of Lourdes School, Grantham Rd, Birkdale, Southport

OTS News recently asked a loaded question about this Birkdale School…

“Are Sefton council covering something up?”

OTS reported:

‘One parent who would like remain anonymous at this time said: “Seven children and their families have been affected by this school but the local education authority allowed the school to do its own investigations and it was all brushed under carpet.

Read the full OTS News article here

This OTS piece grabbed my attention as I was sadly once a reluctant pupil at this harsh education (religious indoctrination) facility. 

Moreover, although I cannot comment about recent abuse allegations at the school I wrote the following about my previous negative experiences there (and in another school) in one of my books.

Southport Catholic Church schools of the 1960s: the abuse

Brutality by harsh teachers in Birkdale (an area of Southport, Lancashire) schools was extensive and committed under the misleading guise of punishment.  I know this to be the truth, because I was there! I have sat on the following for many years but at times someone has to speak up against such injustices. This is where I come in!

I can recall some happy memories from schools that I attended as a small boy yet these are mixed with other recollections that are more dreadful in nature. For many children that attended the Birkdale Catholic Schools like me in the 1960s, time has created recollections of nostalgia. I have noted several local internet news threads that speak of how ‘good’ the teachers were at these facilities. However, others threads admit that overtly strong-arm tactics were in place as well. I can draw similarities here with the recent spate of allegations against the famous ‘Top of the Pops’ presenter, Sir Jimmy Savile. Savile was seen by millions as an amazing person who did much for charity, which is quite true. He raised millions of pounds for various charity concerns. However, today numerous persons are coming forwards with tales of sexual abuse at his hands.

I think that many may be jumping on the publicity (and compensation) bandwagon herein against a deceased man who is no longer able to defend himself. Nevertheless, the following as an accurate description of what I can personally recall about the harsh methods implemented against pupils at two of the schools in question. The first was ‘Our lady of Lourdes’, a primary school in Birkdale. The other was ‘Christ the King Secondary School,’ also in Birkdale Southport, Lancashire.

Back in the 1960s Catholic discipline against children as young as 5 years old was merciless and swift and that was just the accepted way things were. I can still recall being humiliatingly dragged out in front of a whole class when I was very (5 to 6 years old) young and having my short trousers pulled up to reveal my bear bottom as the teacher, one ‘Miss F’, slapped my legs exceedingly hard for talking in class. She was adept at bringing tears to the eyes of very young children and one of the many educational bullies therein. She usually continued to slap children ‘until’ they cried out in pain. I recall later being quite amazed that Miss F later went on to send me a nice postcard from her holidays abroad. Even at that time as a child I felt cheated, violated and as if serious double standards were in operation here. Several distressing incidents occurred at the time I was at primary school that my mind has tried to block out. I do know that they were significantly disturbing however and involved abuse against very young boys. The slightest error on the part of a child (age range from 5 to 11 years old) resulted in severe beating with cane or strap. One tall skeletal teacher, ‘Mr R’ used to make the boys stand in line, military fashion, in the playground and hold out our hands at lunchtime for inspection.  He would take great pleasure in caning anyone who had dirt on their hands.

This was ridiculous as a large mound of black coke or coal fuel was typically placed in the school yard. The school caretaker at the time, Mr Foggerty (as nice old chap), thought that the teacher was completely out of order I recall by beating the lads for this alone. When I was only ten years old the same loutish teacher marched me into his office alone  and caned me dreadfully hard, until my hands bled, for the terrible offense of ‘kissing’ a lovely girl in the school yard who I had fallen frantically in love with. She loved me back equally, yet this counted for nothing.

Love for Jesus was demanded at Catholic school, yet love of anyone else was punishable with six of the best. Things were bad at this primary school, yet they were to get ‘much’ worse at the secondary modern…

Pat joins the team as UFO Consultant! 


Southport's UFO author/researcher, Pat Regan, has now been selected for the international  'CubeSat' team

Please see this link for details of the team's latest activities ...

Pat said.

"It's a real pleasure and an honour to be selected to help out with this exciting UFO-related project. I have personally received a huge amount of international public data over the years concerning the UFO axis. Much of this astonishing information has ended up within online articles that I have written, in the media or in my UFO books. I have also been interviewed on television and radio many times in relation to the ET question. My UFO information experience is therefore open to this intrepid team of adventurers, as such hard-won familiarity with the topic may prove invaluable in many future instances."

"I welcome any genuine attempts, such as this one, to increase our restricted understanding of what resides beyond the limits of our current human understanding. The team deserves support from any genuine, open-minded seekers. "

The team’s goal is to secure $50,000 in funding for the project, which they are currently pursuing with crowd-sourced funding efforts at:

The Church of England with its fundamentalist knickers in a twist after cinema ban

Transparent Church gambit to evangelise paying cinema goers fails. 

Church fundamentalists spitting the dummy over movie ban

The Church of England (CofE) has announced today that the country's three largest cinema chains Odeon, Cineworld and Vue - who control 80% of cinema screens around the country - have refused to show the advert because they believe it… "carries the risk of upsetting, or offending, audiences".

OK – firstly this type of Christian fundamentalist propaganda should be kept out of the cinema. We visit such places for entertainment, not to receive religious indoctrination.  

Not surprisingly the Church is very upset because their depressing little fundamentalist movie, which clearly attempts to inflict 'more' propaganda on the public, has been turned down.

If persons wish to be brain-washed into following any bogus religious faith system then they are cordially invited to attend the correct places for doing so, such as a mosque, church or synagogue etc.

‘Freedom of speech’ has been mentioned by the Church as an objection to the movie ban.

What total codswallop! 

For centuries the self-righteous Church has held sway over the mass public mindset (of many cultures), with a grip of iron . Many who failed to agree with its Christian fundamentalist remit soon found themselves labelled 'heretics' and ended up on the burning stake or gallows.

How many lives did this LOVING faith machine take over previous centuries in its holocaust(s) against 'unbelievers'?

Fundamentalism comes at us in many forms and some are not always immediately apparent.

Commenting on the cinema ban, the Church of England has said it is “disappointed and bewildered”.

It called the decision, “plain silly” and warned it could have a “chilling” effect on free speech.

Right then – in that case the Church cannot have it both ways and would have to fully  agree to allowing all other faiths and philosophies air space at well. So, would the CofE be happy for say Muslims, Atheists, Pagans, Buddhists or Satanists etc to present a self-promotional advert in cinemas to also bolster their ranks? So which is it to be?

Going on previous experiences of wholesale Church censorship regarding freedom of belief and opinion the Church (ever desperate to keep the spiritual monopoly on the trusting masses) soon gets rather shirty when others try and claim their spiritual birthright. 

Give these intolerant missionaries  just one minute of air time and before we know it they will be making us all sit through an hour or more of 'Songs of Praise', before we even get to see a movie that we paid to watch. 

Hello - can anyone out there smell the fundamentalist coffee? This is exactly how such evangelical ploys work and YOU are their target! 

They have this time thankfully failed

Exciting new quest  to search for ET! 

I was recently contacted by UFO witness (Nathalie Savoie) who sent me some fascinating information as below...

Local Effort to Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

A team of young Canadians wants to do something extraordinary; they want to put a satellite into low earth orbit that will be equipped to detect possible extraterrestrial craft.

Maple Ridge brothers David and Marcel Cote, along with Gianna Young, and Matthew Mills (who all possess degrees in various fields of expertise) came together to apply the tools of science to the controversial field of UFOs. Dissatisfied with current efforts to answer the question, “are we being watched by extraterrestrials” the group came up with a workable solution: putting a cost effective “CubeSat” into low earth orbit with instruments to detect high energy particles, cameras to capture images of objects detected and radar to track those objects.

The Freedom of Information efforts that have given the public access to thousands of documents that contain data and witness testimonies related to extraterrestrial observation of humanity have left many with the impression that the ridicule aimed at supporters of ufology by sceptics in the media and in the various governments of the world appear to be orchestrated to discredit those individual investigators and control that information.

This team of Canadians feel, as many people in the world feel, that current efforts by governments regarding the issue of extraterrestrials watching us is pitifully lacking and upon learning of the CubeSat program decided that this was the direction that would have the greatest chance of yielding answers to that question.

CubeSats are a type of standardized, modular satellite for research in space and are made up of 10×10×11.35 cm sized units each weighing up to 1.33 kgs each and can be a single modular satellite or be several linked to form a larger satellite. They are extremely cost effective and are intended for low Earth orbit.

The team’s CubeSat will be capable of detecting and measuring various radiation sources which can then be visually confirmed with two nano-cameras operating with parabolic lenses for a 360 degree view around the satellite. They are also hoping to include a micro-radar system if they can secure a unit at reasonable cost (they are a very new and expensive technology), which would give them the ability to verify detected objects in space.

The team’s goal is to secure $50,000 in funding for the project, which they are currently pursuing with crowd-sourced funding efforts at:

Additional data...

There are several companies that offer equipment for what are called CubeSats, also referred to as nanosatellites. These are small satellites that offer an affordable way for students, researchers, and private companies to have their own little satellite. The cubes measure 10x10x10 centimeters.

The UFO CubeSat team is planning on purchasing a readymade cube from Pumpkin Incorporated that is called a CubeSat kit. The kit comes with the cube, an onboard computer and a way to program the cube. The user can then add more instruments. CubeSat for Disclosure plans to add cameras, a way to communicate and download information from the satellite from the ground, and a scintillation counter. The Indiegogo site says the scintillation counter “enables us to measure the various radiation in our satellites (sic) environment. This is significant as it enables us to detect high energy particles, radiation, and other phenomenon.”

They hope to also install radar if possible. They will use two cameras with parabolic lenses in order to get a 360 degree view around the satellite. Their main goals is to hopefully capture verifiable data and images of UFOs. They feel the topic has been ridiculed, but that it is worthy of “rigorous scientific study.”

Two examples they give as to why UFOs should be taken seriously is that “countries are beginning to release highly classified documents proving their governments interest in aliens and UFO’s (sic),” and that “hundreds of highly credible witnesses have come forward with testimony that at least some UFOs are verifiable alien technology.”

France at war but what next? 

The world - shaping up for WW3? I sincerely hope not, but it gets closer to us every day. 

The danger will NEVER be removed until all vestiges of RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM are educated out of our species. 

Hit the problem of violence at its core! When one self-righteous group of jerks shout – ‘We are the virtuous ones of God and you are the bad ones,’ that initiates the fire that sets the world alight. 

Grow up world, for the sake of the kids if nothing else. 

Get your stupid, thick, heads out of the evil so-called ‘HOLY BOOKS’ and give the youngsters a chance!

Southport Conservative apathy & poor conduct revealed by informative comments made by ex-Tory councillor, Barry Griffiths

I would like to personally thank Barry Griffiths for coming out publicly in support of my wife, ex-candidate Cath Regan.

Cath and Barry  fought together over a lengthy period of time for stolen maternity and children’s hospital services that were controversially taken away from our area.  

On my Facebook  Barry  stated the following…

Cath responded as below…  

CARES meeting in 2010 

I also  added this comment for clarification…

Threats and misconduct galore... 

Barry joins other councillors like Tony Crabtree and Haydn Preece who have also previously exposed current Southport Tory inadequacies and ran the gauntlet for their troubles. 

The truth always has a habit of coming out, no matter how hard some wish to suppress it. How many more examples will it take before the penny finally drops in Southport?

Silence is not a logical option!

Paris bombing creates international outrage but a few home truths - over double standards in the UK - must be addressed

Cameron and fundamentalism – he cannot have his cake and eat it!

British PM, David Cameron, says the Muslim ‘silent majority’ must tackle Islamist extremism. This sounds rather simple – but is it, or are we being treated to yet more political double talk?

David Cameron this month said that Islamic religious schools, which teach anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and "fill children with poison and hate" will be investigated and closed down. Well, the PM was also recently telling us all that we live in a “Christian” land.  I seem to recall that Christianity is historically anti- Semitic. Did not the Church blame the Jews for killing the alleged Jesus chap, their so-called Saviour? That was the spin I was force-fed, on the end of a cane or strap, anyway as a very reluctant Birkdale, Catholic schoolboy.

Hitler made quite an art form about being a good Christian gentleman and having to eradicate Jewish folks for being ‘Christ – killers’ etc from the globe. The Church has a long-standing Christian tradition of blaming Jews for killing Christ. Hitler merely capitalised on this existing ecclesiastical philosophy.

Let’s not forget that the celebrated Church reformer, Martin Luther, was ultimately seduced by all the anti-Jewish Church bigotry of his time. He wrote.

“What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews? Since they live among us and we know about their lying and blasphemy and cursing, we cannot tolerate them if we do not wish to share in their lies, curses, and blasphemy. We must prayerfully and reverentially practice a merciful severity. Let me give you my honest advice: First, to set fire to their synagogues or schools and to bury and cover with dirt whatever will not burn, so that no man will ever again see a stone or cinder of them. This is to be done in honour of our LORD and of Christendom. Second, I advise that their houses also be razed and destroyed. Third, I advise that all their prayer books and Talmudic writings, in which such idolatry, lies, cursing, and blasphemy are taught, be taken from them. Fourth, I advise that their rabbis be forbidden to teach henceforth on pain of loss of life and limb. Fifth, I advise that safe conduct on the highways be abolished completely for the Jews. For they have no business in the countryside, since they are not lords, officials, tradesmen, or the like. Let them stay at home. Sixth, I advise that usury be prohibited to them, and that all cash and treasure of silver and gold be taken from them, and put aside for safe keeping. Seventh, I recommend putting a flail, an axe, a hoe, a spade, a distaff, or a spindle into the hand of young, strong Jews and Jewesses and letting them earn their bread in the sweat of their brow.”

Oh yes, the historically racist teachings within the Church was music to Nazi ears and eventually put into devastating usage that finally became the Holocaust. Millions of good German Christians also stood by as the evil unfolded.

Therefore, one may ask, will Mr Cameron also be investigating and closing down Christian schools that are based on the very same type of  anti-Semitic bile in view of his OWN remarks about extremism in Islam If not why not – or is this just more hypocritical, overtly selective, vote-creaming hypocrisy?

I seem to recall that there is quite a bit of needle between Jews and Arabs about what is happening to certain lands (with regards to claims of ownership etc) in the East. 

Consequently, making wildly generalised statements like this may simply create more frustration and hatred in society, not less.

Pouring petrol on a fire may seem like a good idea to a politician seeking greater prominence but it may have disastrous consequences for us all; especially after the terrible events that have happened recently with the Paris bombings.


So, today our imprudent PM wants to close Muslim schools that fail to meet ‘his’ self-righteous, Christian-orientated religious criterion.

However, not so long ago he appeared to be giving fundamentalist radicalism an open door in UK society.  Cameron’s support for sickening Ritual Animal Abuse, to appease religious types, is no secret.

It’s rather amusing that this politician is now running around talking the tough-man talk when previously he was openly welcoming ritualised animal abuse into the UK. He said a while back…

“Let me make it absolutely clear, that while I am Prime Minister of this country, halal is safe in Britain.”

NB. Claims have been made internationally that there may be a link between Halal and terrorism. 

It seems to me (as a simple Lancashire lad) that the PM says one thing to one group and another thing to the next. We used to call this feeble type of ‘suck-up’ attitude – ‘playing both ends against the middle.’

Straight talking against the calamitous threats of fundamentalist terrorism is welcomed and all fine and dandy – but baloney and duplicity, like the above, helps none of us feeler safer in our beds.

Fundamentalism (regardless of what phony religious listing it may be connected to) is the real enemy of freedom and like others; Cameron cannot have his cake and eat it!
