(LONDON) - (UPDATE: Ben Fellows is in touch with friends and OK.)
Journalist and former child actor Ben Fellows has gone missing after writing several articles accusing Ken Clarke of touching him up when he was 15 years old.
His YouTube channel disappeared, and his wife Julia Fellows says she has no idea who took it down. Ben Fellows’ accusation against Clarke was immediately followed by his disappearance. As you will learn in this video, his wife was told by police that they are not going to investigate.
- On the 22nd of October 2012, Patrick Henningsen, the UK Column’s geopolitical analyst, posted a guest article on his personal website by former child actor and documentary maker, Ben Fellows.
- You may remember Ben – he was the whistleblower who broke the G4S Olympic Games scandal, via Tony Gosling’s radio show, Louise Collins’ radio show, and a previous UK Column Live broadcast.
- In his article of the 22nd of October, Ben alleges that he was touched inappropriately by none other than arch-Bilderberger and present “Minister Without Portfolio”, Kenneth Clarke. Ben alleges that this incident took place while he was working for the Cook Report, and that he was introduced to Clarke as a 15 year old. In fact he was 18 or so at the time.
Following publication of Ben’s story on Patrick Henningsen’s website, Ben’s story was picked up in part by the Daily Express.
What followed was a barrage of emails to Patrick Henningsen from Ken Clarke’s “special adviser” Kathryn Laing, who works in the Cabinet Office, vehemently denying that Ken Clarke ever met Ben Fellows, and requiring Patrick Henningsen remove Ken Clarke’s name from the articles, and make other changes to the articles.
On Thursday 25th October, UK Column Live spoke with Ben Fellows about his allegations, the people he met and what he witnessed growing up as a child actor.
