The Elderly Abuse of David ‘Joe’ Neilson

Let’s talk about Joe!

Matt Taylor & David ‘Joe’ Neilson the day after their arrest in January 2015

I first met him in 2012, after I declared my intention to stand in the inaugural 2012 Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

His first question to me was, “what will you do about police corruption?” to which I remember answering, “what police corruption.”

Since that day both Joe and I have formed a firm friendship and I’ve learnt (first-hand) all about the Katrina Taylor murder cover-up.

I’ve written extensively about Katrina Taylor (no relation,) which you can read via the links below.

New Evidence in the 1996 Katrina Taylor Murder

Momentum is growing for the reinvestigation of the 1996 murder of Katrina Taylor in Brighton.

To cut a long story short; Katrina Taylor was murdered in 1996 and Joe Neilson was the main witness who pointed Sussex police to her killers.

While her killers were brought to justice; justice was interfered with, and her killers allowed to walk free.

As of today, the Katrina Taylor murder remains an unsolved murder, and a murder no one wants to talk about. In fact its fair to say, Katrina Taylor’s murder is being erased from history.

Joe Neilson calls foul, claiming a murder cover-up. In response, Joe has been hounded out of his home, too scared to return in fear he’ll be killed by Sussex Police.

Joe asks the question; Who told Sussex CC Paul Whitehouse in 1996 to cover up Katrina’s murder and Mark Slade/ Marcel Sulcs part in the murder?

Which raises our own questions;

Who is Sussex CC Paul Whitehouse and who is Mark Slade/Marcel Sulc?

Chief Constable of Sussex Police Paul Whitehouse – 1993-2001

Extract taken from Celebrating 50 years of Sussex Police…

Paul Whitehouse hit the headlines in 2001 following his resignation from his post, following the fatal shooting of James Ashley, 39, an unarmed man, who laid naked in his bed with his girlfriend, when he was shot and killed.

The then Home Secretary in Tony Blair’s government, David Blunkett, put pressure on Whitehouse to resign. He effectively invited the now defunct Sussex Police Authority, to dismiss Whitehouse if it wanted to restore public confidence in the county’s police force.

Retiring on a full pension; (a common trend among police officers who found themselves facing disciplinary action), Whitehouse maintained he had done nothing wrong, and that his police officers acting professionally, so much so that he promoted the two police officers after the event.

He said at the time, “I have done nothing wrong. I have behaved to the highest standards of integrity that I expect all my officers to have.”

James Ashley

Ashley was shot by a member of PC Chris Sherwood, a member of Sussex police Special Operations Unit, when it raided a flat in St Leonards, Hastings, in January 1998. Officers had been told that two men, probably armed, were in the flat with a large quantity of drugs.

Ashley, who had a conviction for manslaughter, was in bed with his girlfriend when the police broke in. He was shot when he apparently went to turn on a light.

PC Sherwood would later be acquitted of murder and manslaughter at the Old Bailey. Charges of criminal misconduct against four senior officers involved in planning the raid were also dropped.

The final straw appears to be Whitehouse’s subsequent decision to go ahead with the promotion of two of the officers and backdate their pay increases precipitated the events that led to his resignation. The move angered members of the police authority, who were not consulted. One source said it was the “final straw”.

Clearly defiant and insistent that he had done nothing wrong, Whitehouse said, “My integrity is my most important possession and to hear it called into question both hurts and angers me. I shall now carefully consider what action to take in respect of the scurrilous accusations that have been made against me.”

He questioned Mr Blunkett’s role and said, “politicians should avoid looking for scapegoats when faced with the consequences of fighting crime.”

“I hope he realizes that if he wants us to be firm in our fight against drugs then officers will have to make decisions that may have unfortunate consequences. It is essential in these circumstances that these officers are supported, providing they have acted with integrity themselves.”

It’s a shame that Whitehouse’s time in office ended in such disgrace, though allegations of cover-up and misconduct were also levelled against him and Sussex police, following the murder of 19 year old Katrina Taylor in 1996, and accused of ignoring corruption in Wealden District Council.

Who is Mark Slade, aka Marcel Sulc.

Extract taken from ‘New Evidence in the 1996 Katrina Taylor Murder’….

The Fifth Man

Mark Slade

The fifth man is an alleged crime lord called Mark Slade, aka Marcel Sulc.

Simon Williams worked for Mark Slade by managing the post, deliveries and pick ups, from the property of 318 South Coast road, Peacehaven.

If David Neilson was called to give evidence, the jury would have heard that Mark Slade’s gang were using the flat above Mr Neilson, Top Flat, 318 Southcoast road, Peacehaven, East Sussex, for varying types of criminal activities from credit fraud and drugs.

According to Mr Neilson, Slade openly boasted of having a string of criminal convictions, including blackmail, deception, handling stolen goods, actual bodily hard, firearms, burglary and drug dealing.

Simon Williams worked for Slade as the ‘pick up man’, signing for goods delivered, and for answering the telephone.

Sussex Police have a history of targeting the elderly. If it isn’t a case of criminals dressing up as Sussex Police officers (of which they can buy the uniform from the Sussex Police EBay shop,) and defrauding elderly victims on their door-steps, its a case of Sussex police targeting concerned pensioners, based on malicious allegations, lies and here-say.

John Hoath, has been convicted of sending emails, concerning serious police corruption.

David ‘Joe’ Neilson remains in hiding, too scared to return home because he fears he’ll be killed by Sussex police.

Michael Coughtrey has spent years trying to bring justice to his brother, who was accused of attacking a police officer with a 7″ knife. The police lied…

John Paterson is awaiting trial in Chelmsford prison, based on the lies of an alleged satanic cult leader.

Edward Ellis is being hounded for helping people find justice in the British courts.

On the 15 January 2015, Joe was attacked at his home at 318a SouthCoast Road, Peacehaven. Joe recalls, that if it wasn’t for me coming to his rescue, he would have been killed on his door-step.

Joe called for the police, who turned up within minutes, spent 15 minutes laughing and joking with Joe’s attackers, before eventually knocking on Joe’s door, and arresting both him and I for attacking them!

Prospective MP angry over arrest – The Argus dated 21 January 2015, written by Rachel Millard

This isn’t the first time Joe has been attacked at his home.



Joe battered & bruised

“I heard a noise at the back of my flat and thought I had left my caravan unlocked. Going out I found it was locked, but I unlocked it to see where the noise had come from. Just as I opened the door I heard a noise behind me, as I turned around I was struck in the right eye three times blinding me. He punched me to my body before falling into my caravan. I was I think semi conscious. The man said “that’s from Brotherton don’t waste your time calling the police”. I must have passed out.”


“I don’t know for how long I made it back in to my flat which I had left unlocked. Getting inside I collapsed on my bed, coming to around about 2 am. I had wet and crapped myself. I was in extreme pain and too frightened to call the Police. I did the best with my eye which was still bleeding then cleaned myself up taking pain killers and sleeping tablets I went back to bed.”

The new 1.8m high fence in question as pictured above, is the latest in a long line of incidents which abuse Mr. David Neilson’s human rights and further excludes and hides him from public life.
Against all planning permission and against his consent, a 1.8m high wooden fence was erected, for what can only be surmised, is to cover up the information of police corruption which Mr. David Neilson had put up on his property.

“Coming to later that day I found a cut on my back and both knees where cut, the sight in my eye was OK. Looking back I believe the blows to this eye were done to blind me. The man was hidden behind the new fence.”

Who is Brotherton?

Who are the ‘Dark Forces’ at work in Sussex? Who would attack a disabled old aged pensioner?

The usual suspects are either Sussex Police or contractors attached to Sussex Police. Joe alleges that Sussex Police are in the pocket of a crime-lord called Mark Slade, based in Hastings but now thought to be somewhere in Bulgaria.

Mark Slade operated a number of security companies which acted as a front for drug dealing, credit fraud, theft and a variety of other serious crimes. Alarm bells should have sounded when looking at the names he used for his companies. Names such as Grim Limited, Grab-It Limited, Pure Profit Limited, Deadly Limited And F.U. Bigot Limited.

His crimes were so unique Parliament had to change the Laws to stop him. An amendment to the Theft Act 1968, was made in 1996 to outlaw the offence of ‘Obtaining a money transfer by deception’. Essentially he seized property owned by other people, using legal means through British courts, by repossessing flats for non-payment of nominal ground rents – usually of only around £50. The legal owners were powerless to stop him and Mark Slade went on to amass a multi-million pound fortune by repeating his scam on thousands of victims.

The Guardian newspaper reported on this and can be read further here.

This is not the first time Joe has been attacked by members of Mark Slade’s gang. After the murder of Katrina Taylor, he was attacked in-side his flat, but bizarrely, Sussex Police arrested him instead of the thugs who attacked him. (As what happened again in 15 January 2015.) This sums up everything Joe has been through. This vicious attack is the latest in a long line of attacks and if it wasn’t for a higher power protecting him, (His Guardian Angel),  Joe would be dead now.

Let these words sink in; Joe is too scared to return home because he fears he’ll be killed by Sussex Police.

No wonder their current Chief Constable, Giles York, is standing down in shame.

Chief Constable Giles York Steps Down in Shame

Subscribe to Matt Taylor’s Youtube channel –

Conker crazy Sussex Police Chief Constable Giles York, has announced he is standing down as the UK’s most senior policeman, amid rumours of an impending scandal set to hit the already scandal battered police force.

Having presided over a police force with the lowest moral in it’s history, Giles York is cruelly being compared to the chief rat, fleeing a sinking ship.

Having been criticized for his lack of leadership by retired police officers and the mainstream media, Giles York was appointed Chief Constable in 2014, taking over from his predecessor, Martin Richards.

Chief Constable Giles York has not shown leadership.

Retired Sussex police Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Moore, has slammed Sussex police Chief Constable Giles York, by calling his leadership into question.

“Sussex Police lacks direction.”

“They don’t have their priorities straight.”

He singled York out for criticism, saying “he had not shown leadership.”

Under fire after a series of gaffs, Chief Constable York is cracking under the pressure, evident by his refusal to face the public.


R.I.P Shana Grice

With blood on his hands, following the murder of 19 year old Shana Grice, who appealed for help from Sussex Police, only to be given a penalty notice for wasting police time; Giles York has been widely ridiculed for hiding from serious questions, while embracing positive publicity with enthusiasm and zeal.


Following a spate of sex scandals during his time in charge, dozens of police officers have been exposed as sexual deviants, including paedophiles, rapists, prostitutes and perverts.

Leaving the force open to blackmail and extortion from organized crime, members of the public, are rightly saying that he should have been sacked along-time ago, rather than be allowed to retired early and receive his attractive police pension.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, York has been accused of preciding over a false flag event at the 2015 Shoreham Airport Crash –

To hiding an alien satanic sex cult within his ranks.

Famously quoted as saying he hasn’t got a problem with the public knowing how much he gets paid, but adverse to what he spends his wage on, Giles York explains his decision to stand down was “not an easy one.”

He said, “My decision to leave the service has not been an easy one and follows much soul searching with my family – there are so many compelling reasons to stay.

However, anyone in policing will know that the impact of this job on you and your family cannot be underestimated.”

As to how the job has impacted on his family remaining a mystery, Giles York started his police service in Maidstone with Kent Police in 1990 and was promoted through a number of operational areas, leaving as head of Special Branch in 2004.

Said to be “extremely ambitious,” by his predecessor Martin Richards, York first became an assistant chief constable with South Wales Police in 2005, where he was the lead for local policing, operational policing and crime, while also leading the Welsh Counter Terrorism and Serious and Organised Crime teams, Tarian.

Self-praising, York said, “It has been an absolute privilege to have been a police officer for more than 30 years, to have worked with so many fantastic, hard-working, loyal and selfless people – and an honour to have protected and served the public.

I have been lucky enough to have enjoyed a career that has been as rewarding as it has been challenging – from beat officer to the most senior detective in charge of policing the ports in Kent, to the operational world of counter-terrorism and serious organised crime in South Wales.

As a chief officer for the past 11 years, I have led Sussex Police through what has been one of the most extraordinary and difficult periods in policing history.

During that time, I am proud to have cultivated an increasingly diverse organisation that begins to reflect the communities we serve.”

Criticized for his force’s treatment of vulnerable victims of crime, York has come under sustained pressure by ex Royal Military Policeman, Matt Taylor, as to how his force was fooled by an alleged satanic cult leader.

Sussex Police Hall of Shame

PC Alexander Walsh

A police officer awaiting sentencing for common assault and stalking a woman has been dismissed from Sussex Police.
Brighton-based PC Alexander Walsh, 33, of St Michael’s Place, Brighton, admitted the charges at Portsmouth Crown Court earlier this month.
Two counts of gross misconduct in respect of discreditable conduct were found against him during a hearing at Sussex Police headquarters last Friday.
He was dismissed without notice, and is due to be sentenced on 12 October.
He pleaded guilty to common assault and stalking without fear, alarm or distress on 5 September.
Det Supt Steve Boniface, head of Sussex Police’s professional standards department, said: “This officer’s behaviour was a violation of the trust that the public put in the police to serve and protect them.”


PC Daniel Moss – R.I.P

Sussex Police officer has been sacked after he was caught selling himself for sexual services while on sick leave.
PC Daniel Moss, 39, based at Hastings, became under formal investigation on December 2 and was immediately suspended from duty.
He was caught advertised himself online as a male prostitute and offered services to perform sexual acts for cash.
A Sussex Police spokesman said this demonstrating a clear conflict in personal and professional interests.
Moss had been on sick leave from September for a stress-related illness.


Detective Inspector Dominic O’Brien

A FORMER police officer chatted online about trying to rape an 11-year-old girl.
Sussex Police Detective Inspector Dominic O’Brien had already resigned from the force after he was accused of sending sexually explicit text messages to the 14-year-old daughter of a murder victim in 2006.
But O’Brien started talking to someone he thought was the mother of an 11-year-old on an online chatroom.
Lewes Crown Court was told yesterday that O’Brien, 52, of Rosemary Avenue, Steyning, was clearly aroused as he discussed his sexual desires towards the child.


PC Luke Smith

A policeman who filmed himself performing sexual acts while in uniform and had dealings with sex workers has been jailed for 15 months.
PC Luke Smith, 34, who was based at Hastings, pleaded guilty to two charges of misconduct in public office and one count of obtaining personal data.
He was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court to 15 months in prison for each misconduct count, to run concurrently.
Sussex Police said Smith was sacked after he admitted the offences.


DC Celia MacDonald

A detective constable failed to properly investigate child sex abuse claims and was only found out when the matter came to light again a year later.
Sussex Police officer Celia MacDonald decided no crime had been committed, did not record a crime or investigate further, the force said.

A gross misconduct panel ruled she would have been sacked if she had not retired just days before a hearing.


Sergeant Philip Patterson aka Philip Savidge

A former Sussex Police officer has been jailed after pleading guilty to making and distributing more than 50,000 indecent images of children.
Philip Savidge, 26, of Alexandra Road, Burgess Hill, was an acting sergeant with Sussex Police at East Grinstead.
He admitted 42 charges relating to the making and distribution of 54,323 images, which included 1,681 prohibited and extreme images.
He was sentenced at Lewes Crown Court to 27 months’ imprisonment.
Savidge was served with a Sexual Offence Prevention Order designed to restrict his access to and use of computer equipment.
The court also made a destruction order for the material and equipment seized by police.


PC Martin Harris

A police officer with “an entrenched sexual addiction” has been jailed for possessing indecent images of children.
Martin Harris took advantage of his work with victims of sex offences, even downloading childhood photos of a rape victim, Hove Crown Court heard.
Harris, 37, of Saltdean, Sussex, who admitted possessing and making indecent images and misconduct in public office, was jailed for two years.
Judge Christine Henson said his actions were a “gross breach of trust”.
Harris, a police constable, who joined Sussex Police in 2002, volunteered as a sexual offences liaison officer for 10 years before applying for the post in the safeguarding investigation unit in Brighton.


Chief Inspector Rob Leet

dismissed after being found guilty of gross misconduct.
Former Chief Inspector Rob Leet and Sgt Sarah Porter were found to have conducted their relationship while at work and misused Sussex Police systems to arrange their liaisons.

Mr Leet, 44, was also found to have taken advantage of a domestic abuse victim by having a sexual relationship with her, also while on duty.


Inspector Lee Lyons

A senior police officer who contacted prostitutes while on duty has been sacked following a misconduct hearing.
Inspector Lee Lyons, of Sussex Police, arranged a location and fee for one woman, “Natalie’s”, services for after his shift ended.
He also used his personal phone at work to make 23 calls to 11 prostitutes in an hour on 23 July.
Mr Lyons, accepted all 21 allegations against him, the disciplinary hearing was told.
He did not attend the seven-minute hearing in front of Chief Constable Giles York at Sussex Police HQ in Lewes.
Mr Lyons, 40, who was based in Hastings, was a critical incident inspector at the time of making the calls and text messages on his police BlackBerry.


Officer Trevor Godfrey

FORMER Sussex officer Trevor Godfrey committed misconduct over his involvement in a stalking case which saw a 19-year-old brutally murdered by her ex-boyfriend, a panel has found.
Now-retired Godfrey had told a misconduct hearing Shana Grice had initially lied about being in a secret relationship with older colleague Michael Lane as a “smokescreen” so her boyfriend Ashley Cooke did not find out.
The former Sussex Police officer denied he had applied a stereotype that two people in a relationship cannot be the subject of abuse from one another.


Inspector Tony Lumb

A HIGH-RANKING police officer has been sacked from the force for having sex with women while on duty.
Inspector Tony Lumb formed inappropriate relationships with two women, including a victim of a disability hate crime in Brighton.
At a disciplinary hearing yesterday his 27-year career with Sussex Police was brought to an end after a panel ruled his behaviour amounted to gross misconduct.
It was revealed that the force had investigated him over accusations he had made visits to women who he had previously met as part of his public duties.


Sergeant Sarah Porter

A FEMALE police sergeant was sacked from the force for having sex with a married inspector colleague.
Sarah Porter was two ranks below Rob Leet when they conducted a relationship while at work and misused Sussex Police systems to arrange their meetings.


DC Richard Holder

A police officer has been sacked without notice after selling himself for sex while on sick leave.
Det Con Richard Holder of Sussex Police resigned before his dismissal at a disciplinary hearing on Monday.
Ch Con Giles York told the hearing at force headquarters in Lewes that Holder advertised on the website.
The Police Federation said Holder admitted all of the allegations and had apologised for his lack of judgement.
He is the second Sussex Police officer to have been caught advertising his services as a prostitute in less than two years.
In December 2016, Hastings-based police constable Daniel Moss was dismissed after advertising himself as a male prostitute.
Last year it also emerged Insp Tony Lumb of Sussex Police could face criminal charges over claims he had sex with women he met while on duty.


PC Daniel Barnes

Daniel Barnes, 40, accessed ‘vile’ images of children while he worked as a police officer with Sussex Police, a court heard today.
The images were found when police raided an address in Bognor in 2017.


Email to Sussex Police DC Duncan Lloyd dated 13 January 2020


The following information has been published for the purposes of defending myself in the forth-coming Dearman v’s Taylor harassment case.

The evidence of my email to Sussex Police DC Duncan Lloyd dated 13 January 2020, is to be used as evidence in my defense.

Email to Sussex Police DC Duncan Lloyd dated 13 January 2020

DC Duncan Lloyd of Sussex police,

To update you on my situation and circumstances…

First and foremost, I wish to notify Sussex Police that Horsman Solicitors no longer represent me, and that I intend to defend myself in any forth-coming Court trial between Mr Dearman and myself.

I’ve attached a letter from Mr Horsman dated 3 Jan 2020, which evidences this.

Secondly I wish to formally express my anger, frustration and disappointment that I’ve been rebailed until 18 February 2020.

I’ve proven beyond doubt that Sussex Police, had no grounds to arrest me on 23 September 2019, for breaking a court order, which I have demonstrated was a null and void court order, in light of a further court order dated a month later, which allowed the naming of the Hampstead parents.

In light of this, I’m now calling for a court trial, as the only avenue left open to me, to prove my innocence and guarantee the return of my property.

I relish the opportunity to defend myself in a court of Law, where I am confident I can demonstrate beyond doubt, that I am a victim of Sussex police harassment and intimidation.

As you will be aware; a lawful defense of Harassment, is the prevention and detection of crime.

I can evidence this by exhibiting the following email exchange between myself and Veritas Justice, in which Veritas confirm I am a victim of crime.

Second to this, I made a complaint, (based on the advice of Veritas Justice), to Sussex Police on the 21 June 2019, to which Sussex police choose to ignore and take no further action.

I can demonstrate with confidence that there is no law preventing the public naming of any of the Hampstead parents, and that the Hampstead case is still very much in the public domain and a public interest story.

This is evidenced by a recent Daily Mail article dated 5 January 2020, which names the Hampstead mother.

To remind you; on the morning of 23 September 2019, the day I was arrested, I went to the Royal Courts of Justice in London and filed a claim of harassment against Sussex Police, citing £2 million in damages.

I fully expect to win any future case against Sussex police and am confident that my affidavit of truth, demonstrates beyond doubt, I’m a victim of Sussex police harassment.

I am currently attending a Graphic Design course, to which the return of my computer equipment is essential, to enable me to make a living as a freelance writer and graphic designer.

I wish to offer you this chance to cease and desist any and all investigations against me, in light of the information above, and return my computer equipment without delay.

I look forward to a swift and just end to this criminal nonsense.

Two Questions to Sussex Police

Sent on Friday 22/11/2019 at 07:58

Dear Sussex Police,

Please excuse me while I try and understand the events which led to my arrest for harassment on the 23 September 2019.

Is it common for Sussex police to open an investigation, into an allegation which was investigated within that year, but which found insufficient evidence to charge?

What I mean is – Ricky Dearman made a complaint against me for harassment and making a malicious video about him, in which I was arrested in October 2018, where after all my computer equipment was seized and detained for 9 months.

After the investigation no charges were brought, which in my view means I didn’t harass him and nor did I make a malicious video about him.

But yet, within a year, I’ve again been arrested for harassment following a complaint by the same person???

I simply don’t understand why Sussex police would conduct another arrest against me, when less than a year ago, Sussex police arrested me, and found I had no case to answer???

Do you understand what I’m saying?

If it was found I had no case to answer the last time I was alleged to have harassed this man, why have I been arrested again, when its likely I’ll again be found to have no case to answer?

Aren’t Sussex police wasting their own time and resources?

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Taylor

Dear Sussex Police,

Please excuse me again for contacting you; I’m just trying to understand the events which led to my arrest on 23 September 2019 for harassment.

The arrest on 23 September 2019 was as an consequence of a charge that I broke a court judgement, which was handed to me by PC Lyons on the 9 February 2019, when while intoxicated at my home on a Saturday night with my sister, PC Lyons knocked on my door at 9 pm, waved around a court judgement by Mrs Justice Pauflley dated 10 February 2015, which forbid the naming of everyone involved in the horrific Hampstead satanic case, including the children, parents, teachers and others.

It just so happened that there was a second Mrs Justice Pauffley judgement dated 19 March 2015, which allowed the naming of the parents.

So of-course this leads to the obvious question, as to why Sussex police sent an officer round to my home, waving an out of date court judgement and insisting I adhere to it, on threat of arrest?

Do you get what I’m saying?

I don’t understand why Sussex police would do that? 

Sussex police is a professional operation, and must have known about the 19 March 2015 Mrs Justice Pauffley judgement which permitted the naming of the Hampstead parents, and must have known the 10 February 2015 judgement was null and void.

I wouldn’t bother you otherwise, but its serious because I’ve been arrested for allegedly breaking a null and void court judgement and as a result have had my computer equipment seized, depriving me of making a living as a freelance writer and journalist.

Christmas is coming and you are depriving me of earning money to buy my children their Christmas presents.

I look forward to answers to both of the questions I’ve asked today.

Many thanks,

Matthew Taylor

Spot the difference?

Dear Chief Constable Giles York,

I trust all is well and you remain as ‘cracking’ as you always have been.

I’m writing to you today concerning a very delicate and sensitive matter, which I feel only you can address and provide answers to.

As you may or may not be aware, I visited Brighton’s police yesterday (12/11/2019) to report a crime of witness intimidation against me, by two individuals I know to be Ricky Dearman and Karen Irving. 

Reporting Witness Intimidation

I did so on the advice of DC Duncan Lloyd from Sussex police.

Regrettably as a result of my anxiety I’ve suffered since 2017, I ran from Brighton police station in fear, following a panic attack, having construed the time taken to assess my complaint, as an excuse to gather the manpower to arrest me.

As you know, I’ve been arrested on a number of occasions for offences I do not understand.

Take for example the latest arrest on 23 September 2019, for breaching a court injunction, which morphed into harassment with intent of violence. 

I simply don’t understand it???

Perhaps you can explain it to me…

As you know, PC Lyons came to my home at 9pm on Saturday night 9/2/2019. waving around a piece of paper with High Court of Justice Family Division judgement by Mrs Justice PAUFFLEY.

While inebriated, I was threatened with arrest on the stroke of midnight, if I didn’t remove all and any material about Ricky Dearman, which I may have published.

I still can’t believe it. Serving me with out-of-date paper, threatening me with arrest, and using this said out-of-date paperwork, as the justification for arresting me on the 23 September 2019.

I’ve got every right to ask the question, as to whether there’s a satanic sect within Sussex police. The preferential treatment shown to Ricky Dearman, is truly astonishing.

Staying on the subject of Mrs Justice Pauffley’s judgment which PC Lyons handed me while I was intoxicated on Saturday night of the 9th February 2019. It stated:


I knew (without having to consult a solicitor) that the paperwork never applied to me, because how on Earth could I exercise my “RIGHT TO ASK THE COURT TO VARY OR DISCHARGE THE ORDER,” when I was handed the notice four years after the event.

Even the end paragraph read, “The parties and any person affected by any of the restrictions imposed by this order may make application to vary or discharge it to a Judge of the High Court on not less than 48 hours notice to the parties.”

If I was given this notice on 10 February 2015, (the date it was issued) I would have made application to vary or discharge the restrictions on the grounds that the Hampstead story was in the public domain and the parents of children P and Q, were in the public domain and were being named across the world on a daily basis.

I took all reasonable attempts to confirm my own interpretations of the paperwork with Brighton based solicitors, but surprise surprise, no one was willing to read the notice, let alone advise me on it’s contents.

While I felt the restrictions did not apply to me, on the grounds I was given the notice 4 years after the event, depriving me of my right to appeal against the restrictions within, I decided to adhere to it’s conditions as a measure of good will, and in fear of being arrested again, following a tortuous few years of arrest and detention by your force (working together with Surrey Police.)

I wish to make this very important point, while I think of it.

The Hampstead satanic case which went viral in late 2014 and has grown ever since, is a truly horrific story which I do not want anything to do with.

As a father of two children, I could never imagine the scenario in which my children would say such horrific things about me, if they weren’t true.

I was happy to put the Hampstead satanic story behind me, having suffered personal loss, distress, alarm and fear having been investigated by Sussex police in October 2018, when Ricky Dearman made a complaint of harassment against me, and which was investigated by Sussex police, but found to have insufficient evidence to charge me.

Sadly I wasn’t able to put the Hampstead story behind me, because as a public figure, certain elements of my audience were intent to keep the Hampstead story alive, and to goad me into naming the Hampstead father, whenever I went live on either Youtube or Facebook.

I’ve chronicled the malicious communications I’ve received and are available via the links below.

It was only due to the continuing harassment, stalking and malicious communications that I began to name Ricky Dearman, as the person who I reasonably believed to be behind the numerous sock-puppet accounts who were causing me immense alarm, distress and fear.

I showed my evidence to Veritas Justice on 14 March 2019, who confirmed I was a victim of malicious communications, and advised me to report the crime to Sussex police, which I did on 21 June 2019, but which was never investigated. As the email I received from Simon on Monday 9th September 2019 shows:

Mr Taylor
I have been contacted by Sarah at Brighton front office regarding you wanting an update and to be completely honest I’m not going to waste my or your time speaking about what I have previously told you a number of times.
The Resolution centre is not Investigating your report but officers listen to your allegations in due course. I will not be entering into further discussion regarding this matter as I’m not longer dealing with the report.
Kind Regards

I trust you appreciate my concern that preferential treatment has been should towards Ricky Dearman, over and above me, evident by the fact you have acted on his complaint of alleged harassment twice, having refused to investigate my allegation of being sent malicious communications against him.

I ran from Brighton Police station in fear I’d be arrested for reporting a separate offence of Witness Intimidation, in contravention of Section 51(1) of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994.

While I hope Sussex police would investigate this, my trust in your police force is at rock bottom and taking into account the treatment of John Paterson, John Hoath, David Neilson, Edward Ellis and many others, at the hands of your force, I doubt, with regret and disappointment, that my latest complaint of ‘Witness Intimidation,’ will not be investigated.

PC Colin Read said to me upon my release on 23 September 2019, that when I reported Ricky Dearman and Karen Irving for malicious communications at Brighton police station on 21 June 2019, that it was “embarrassing.”

I am aghast with horror and revulsion that a serving Sussex police officer, should regard me reporting an insidious crime such as harassment, stalking and malicious communication, as “embarrassing.”

I have lost all trust in Sussex police and I hold you directly responsible.

After all, you only need to recount how many times I’ve been arrested by Sussex Police (working together with Surrey Police) since 2015:

Dreadful Dates between 2015-2019

  • Arrested#1 – After calling for emergency police assistance following an attempt on David Neilson’s life at 318 South Coast road, Peacehaven – Thursday 15 January 2015
  • Arrested#2 – in a dawn raid for harassment and stalking – Monday 20 February 2017
  • Arrested#3 – for Making and Possessing Child pornography, at Salford Custody Suite – Monday 27 March 2017
  • Arrested#4 – for breaking police bail and detained over night, to see the Magistrate in the morning – Wednesday 21- Thursday 22 June 2017
  • Arrested#5 – for Making a Malicious video, following a complaint by Mr D, an alleged ’Protected Witness’ in the 2014 Hampstead satanic sacrifice case – Saturday 21 October 2017
  • Arrest#6 – for Breaching 25 April 2017 Court Injunctions – Thursday 3 May 2018
  • Arrested#7 – for harassment and naming an alleged ’Protected Witness’ – Monday 23 September 2019

Now Mr York, (and thanks for keeping up with me thus far); it transpires that the Mrs Justice Pauffley’s judgement dated 12 February 2015, was actually superseded by another judgement made public, dated 19 March 2015, with different conditions, clearly stating that only the children’s names were to remain anonymous and NOT the parents.

Are you seriously telling me Sussex police WERE NOT aware of Mrs Justice Pauffley’s judgement dated 19 March 2015?

Are you seriously telling me you never knew PC Lyons was sent around to my home on a Saturday night, to threaten me with arrest, (while intoxicated), with out-of-date judgement, which held no weight in law?

I don’t think so!

I have every right to suspect there is a satanic sect within Sussex police.

Proof Ricky Dearman is NOT a “Protected Witness!”


Mr York, I have known you since 2012 and I consider you a ‘cracking’ guy, but really, WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?

I’ve explained all this to DC Duncan Lloyd who said he’ll pass the new information of the 19 March 2015 judgment to the CPS, which in my opinion voids the arrest of 23 September 2019, and must result in the return of my property with immediate effect.

I will forward on the document you sent yesterday.

The response back from the CPS has left me confused and has resulted in this email to you.

Dear Mr Taylor
Thank you for your email received by CPS SE VRR & Complaints from the CPS Enquiries team at HQ.
It may assist if I explain the role of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). The CPS is responsible for reviewing and, where appropriate, prosecuting most criminal cases in England and Wales following an investigation by the police. The CPS is also responsible for providing legal advice to the police about cases, although we cannot provide legal advice to members of the public.
The CPS is not responsible for any investigation, receipt of any evidence from bodies other than the police and does not hold physical siezed items (such as computers).
All of these latter functions are performed by the police and if there are any queries you have about their investigations or their possession of your property, you need to get in touch with them directly.
I appreciate this response my be disappointing but there is no more we can do to assist you.
South East VRR & Complaints team

In light of the information above, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to my house to have a chat. You can return my computer equipment when you visit.

Yours Sincerely,
Matthew Taylor

Dear Chief Constable Giles York of Sussex Police.

a personal opinion of a particular individual – “I’m furious with Sussex Police”

I’m so furious with the management of Sussex police that they should allow the morale of their police force to hit a 90% low.

Its a clear dereliction of duty on the part of the bosses responsible for the well-being and mental health of their work-force.

There is no excuse and heads must roll. Allowing your work-force hit a 90% dissatisfaction level demonstrates bad leadership.

Something has broken at the top of Sussex police and its time for a change.

Sussex police is a train wreck and everyone wants off.

We now know that behind all the public smiles of satisfaction, competence and hope; Sussex police officers were turning to pornography to alleviate the horrors of anxiety, low morale and stress.

As an ex-Royal Military Policeman myself, I appreciate the hard work and service to the country, our police officers give on a daily basis.

There is no greater responsibility in being tasked with serving and protecting the public.

Shame on Giles York for failing his rank and file.
