Explore Luxury and the Natural Wonders Side-by-Side at Combermere Abbey in Cheshire, UK

https://preview.redd.it/60lu1m1sdgm51.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=aaa8e5d158bc78e64e66f415515378db6e1a9bc4
The North Wing of Combermere Abbey.Combermere Abbey is a 12th century estate based in the heart of Great Britain’s countryside. Rest and recharge and treat yourself to ultimate tranquility in a true English bucolic setting. There are acres and acres of land and fresh air to explore, so you may never want to leave the estate during your holiday.
Combermere Abbey is located in Cheshire, England near the border with Shropshire. The estate is a three and a half hour’s drive from London, and just over an hour away from Liverpool.
The estate offers two lodging options: the North Wing or the Cottages.
Combermere Abbey’s North Wing
The Downstairs Sitting Room.
An idyllic home from home that exhumes luxury, the abbey’s exquisite B&B suites in its North Wing are perfect for those looking to get away. The North Wing features its own private entrance, and you may choose from one of the two sumptuous bedrooms: The Salamanca or The Bhurtpore. A locally-sourced breakfast is served in the dining room. The dining room features views over the 143-acre mere.
The Salamanca is the epitome of luxury. It features an inviting super king-size antique gilded tester bed. The opulent bedroom leads through to a luxurious bathroom with spectacular views, a marble clad bath, shower, and twin basins.
The charming Bhurtpore Suite features a super king bed that can be adapted into twin beds. The en suite shower room highlights the stunning views across the mere.
The Bhurtpore Suite in the North Wing B&B has officially opened as of September 2nd.
A stay in the North Wing start from £150 per night.
The Cottages
The holiday cottages at Combermere Abbey were converted from the 19th century Combermere stables. They provide the perfect getaway opportunity for entertaining small groups of friends and family.
All 10 cottages are now open. These cottages are all self-catering and dog friendly, and may sleep between four and ten guests, depending upon the cottage.
Cottage guests may order meals from a local chef as well as afternoon tea. Afternoon tea comes beautifully packaged from Fiona Hackshall Afternoon Teas. Deliveries are Wednesday-Sunday from 2-4pm.

Nearby Activities and Ecursions
There are a number of fantastic eateries nearby, as well as local farmers markets in Nantwich and Whitchurch.
Activities include wild swimming, woodland walks, exploring the gardens, den building with kids, and tennis. Note: you currently have to bring your own rackets through as per hygiene guidelines.
There is also Chester Zoo which is only around 40-45 minutes away.
Information and Current Packages
Currently, Combermere Abbey has a few spaces left for October half term breaks. But you must act quickly! Half term begins on Monday, October 26th. Why not whisk the children away to a cottage in the countryside?
Combermere Abbey in Cheshire is also a beautiful destination for weddings. They are currently booking for 2021 and onward into 2022. For 2021, there are limited autumn and winter dates still available.

  • Cut RHOBH footage of the ladies discussing Aaron Phypers (Queens of Bravo Twitter)
  • Lisa Vanderpump Opens Up About Her Finances Taking a Hit Amid Pandemic (Reality Blurb/Give Them Lala... with Randall podcast) "While Lala described Lisa as “wealthy [as f**k]” during the episode after Lisa revealed that she is now doing her own nails, Lisa clarified that she “used to be” wealthy prior to the pandemic before saying she hopes it will be safe to reopen her restaurants soon. “Five months of paying rent and insurance, and having no business is taxing, stretching, [has been] a bit of a nightmare. But we’ll get back on track soon,” she shared. “When we do decide to open, we have good-sized patios. Pump is 90 percent garden. TomTom has two gardens and we can put tables outside. So we are very fortunate with that but we’ve just been waiting for it to be safe.” “Vanderpump Garden is open but distancing is essential and Caesars is doing a really good job with that,” she stated about her Las Vegas eatery which she opened last year. The Pump Rules boss also admitted during the interview that she helped her two children, Pandora Sabo and Max Todd, buy their homes. “I did buy them both… gave them the deposit for a place to live and they both have a mortgage,” shared Lisa. “Pandora and Jason have a mortgage and Max has a mortgage. I gave them a start but I like them to have their responsibilities.”

  • Teresa Giudice: How She Feels About Dating After Divorce From Joe Is Finalized (HollywoodLife Exclusive) “Teresa is having fun and flirting with men but she’s not dating anyone seriously. It’ll probably be some time before that happens but her friends are trying to set her up,” an insider close to the Real Housewives of New Jersey star spilled to HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She seems to feel weird about it because of her younger daughters, so maybe when they’re a bit older,” the source added. “The girls aren’t ready for her to date and she’s really busy with them and filming that it’s just not at the top of her priority list. Maybe one day she’ll be open to a relationship and love again, but right now, she’s still healing from the end of her marriage and focusing on herself,” the insider explained. “She’s in the best place she’s been in quite sometime and you can tell how light and happy she is. The girls are doing well too and Gia being home so much has helped Teresa out tremendously. She is able to get out and have fun and unwind. She didn’t get to do that for a long time while Joe was away.” “Joe isn’t dating anyone seriously either for the same reasons. He’s missing his girls tremendously and that consumes his thoughts a lot,” the source said. “The family is all on FaceTime all day, every day. He sees his family often and has made friends and stays busy with work. This is a new chapter for all of them. The girls can’t wait to see their dad. As soon as it’s safe, it will happen,” they also noted. Despite the divorce, Teresa and Joe have maintained a friendly relationship — and are even going to be working together to sell sex toys! The duo have partnered with European distributor Zalo USA, which will be prominently featured on RHONJ‘s season 11."

  • Video interview: Ashley Darby on Her ‘Unconventional’ Marriage to Michael and Their Season 5 Troubles (ET Online exclusive) "Ashley Darby very much relates to Jada Pinkett Smith and the whole "entanglement" saga. "Oh my gosh," the Real Housewives of Potomac star sighs when the topic comes up. Back in June, Jada and her husband, Will Smith, revealed to the world that Jada had a relationship outside of her marriage to Will with singer August Alsina that went on for quite some time. Jada and August's "entanglement," as Jada dubbed it, occurred while Will and Jada were on a break of sorts from their marriage. "You know, I related to that a little more than I'd like to admit," Ashley says, recalling watching the episode of Red Table Talk on which Will and Jada discussed their relationship woes. "I was like, man, Jada. I'm with you girl," she continues. "I get it. I mean, marriage is just so hard -- and it's really hard being a public figure and having difficulties, and it's even more difficult when you decide to talk about them and say some things that aren't necessarily fitting the mold of what people think a marriage is or should be." Ashley's marriage to her husband, Michael, has been under a microscope for five years of RHOP. They have an age difference (she's a millennial, he's in his 50s) and a number of cultural differences (she's American and biracial, he's from Australia), and there hasn't been a single season where allegations of infidelity, hidden sexuality or some combination of the two aren't a topic of discussion. Season 5 is no different, as Ashley's co-star, Candiace Dillard Bassett, receives a text message with new accusations against Michael. This time, someone claims to have seen Michael out at a strip club, where he allegedly shared that he has "a boyfriend and a wife." "Obviously, Candiace and I have had our share of differences in the past, so I wasn't really keen on believing her from the beginning, because Candiace has said a lot of things that weren't true," Ashley shares of what starts to play out in this Sunday's episode. "I took it with a grain of salt... and then it unfolds and boy, does it unfold," she adds. "I mean, there's, like, layers upon layers upon layers of it." In the past, Ashley and Michael have largely brushed off the rumors, denied them or gotten involved in legal action about them. This time will be different, though, as Ashley admits Michael did make a "pretty significant" mistake. Viewers will see the 32-year-old confront her husband in an upcoming episode. "I'm truthful and I know that can be a hard thing to believe, and that people want to think that we make up things and there's all these facades around our relationship, but I really am truthful," she says. "So if there's something that needs to be talked about, if there's a hurdle that we actually do need to overcome or an issue we have to address, we're going to address it." "It's not as though I've said those things in the past to be facetious, or to just, like, you know, create this false illusion about my marriage," she adds, referencing the way the couple has handled marital speed bumps in the past. "No, if there was an issue then, I would've talked about it. When we were having issues with the restaurant [we owned], I was upfront and talked about it. When I was having issues with my mom and how my family dynamic was working, we talked about it, and this is not going to be any different. So, the things that were false, yes, I said those were false. The things that are true, I will talk about them, and if they're true, they're true." Ashley says fans will definitely learn some new information about her relationship and how it works before season 5’s end. "I'm not a conventional person and I just don't think it's gonna come as a shock to anybody," she teases. "Michael and I are an unconventional couple in many ways." The pair is still very much together, though. They recently wrapped up an extended stay at their beach house in Delaware, and are now back home in the Potomac area. (And she's not sure why Google has Michael labeled as "Ashley Darby’s ex-husband," but offers a joke guess of a petty employee of the search engine just wanting to mess with her.) "I love my husband," she declares. "He's a great husband, and my relationship is going to withstand. It's strong enough to withstand a lot. It's really going to be up to us to what we think is something we can overcome. I'm not going to let the media, or the public, or the opinions of others affect what I do and how I approach my marriage. Everyone's going to have an opinion. I'm sure there'll be some very strong reactions to what they see and what happens, but ultimately the only person who really lays next to Michael at night and has to have these discussions is me. So, that's that." (more in article and in video)

  • Lydia McLaughlin Weighs in on the New RHOC Season (bravotv.com) "Lydia still spends lots of time with her RHOC friends Gretchen Rossi, Lizzie Rovsek, and Alexis Bellino. In fact, all three women made an appearance on Glitter Town during a super glam brunch Lydia and Judy threw. Lydia actually sees Gretchen (and her adorable daughter, Skylar Gray) on a weekly basis. “We’re in a bible study together,” Lydia explained. “We’ve grown really close. She’s a wonderful mom, and she loves her little baby, and she’s just dedicated her whole life to Skylar. I’m so proud of her.” When asked how she feels about Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson not returning, Lydia explained, “I felt like it was a long time coming, honestly. I think it’s a good switch-up. I’m excited to see what the cast does.” “I love Vicki, and I ran into her a couple times, and I think it’s good for her. I think she’s ready to leave,” Lydia continued. “She has a successful relationship, she has an engagement. She has a daughter, she’s a grandmother. I think that she has a lot going on. I do know that Tamra…she’s not letting it go. She’s still talking about it. I just feel bad for her, it’s kind of like, OK, you need to move on and do something else. She’s talking about the next season, and I think it’s a little…it sounds pathetic.” There are also two ‘Wives she’s not on great terms with. “Shannon [Storms Beador] and Tamra both have blocked me, so I don’t know what’s going on in their lives,” she said. “I don’t know, maybe they’ve unblocked me now. I haven’t checked lately.” Lydia went on to say that after 15 seasons, she finds it refreshing to meet some fresh faces, as it’s interesting to take a look into the lives of new people who have stories to tell."

  • Dorinda Medley exits ‘RHONY’: Andy Cohen, ‘Real Housewives’ stars react (Page Six)
  • Rachel Uchitel floated as Dorinda Medley’s replacement on ‘RHONY’ (Page Six Exclusive) "Could Rachel Uchitel replace Dorinda Medley on “The Real Housewives of New York City?” Page Six has learned that the colorful socialite — who shot to fame as one of Tiger Woods’ many mistresses — was “on the shortlist” to join the Bravo show last season, but producers plumped for Leah McSweeney instead. And now that Medley’s been axed after six seasons, we’re told there’s renewed effort to get her on the cast. An insider told us that Uchitel’s keen to land the gig, and listed her qualifications: “She’s linked to New York — growing up here, and [she was] on the cover of the New York Post as ‘New York’s tragic face.’ ” (We published Uchitel’s picture with that headline on Sept. 14, 2001. In the shot, she holds up a missing person flyer for her banker fiancé, James Andrew O’Grady, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Uchitel also appeared on Page 1 of The Post a number of times during the Woods scandal.) Meanwhile, they said that — as Page Six has previously reported — she’s been linked to “Real Housewives” lothario Harry Dubin, who has famously dated cast members Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps, and was married to former cast member Aviva Drescher. Plus, they said, that Uchitel (bonus gossip alert!) dated Paul “PK” Kemsley of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” for a year, right before he got together with wife Dorit. A Bravo rep denied that they’re considering her to replace Medley, but appeared to acknowledge that she’s previously been in talks to join the show. When we asked Uchitel if she was joining the show, she wrote to us, “News to me!” and a winking emoji."

  • D’Andra Simmons says ‘RHOD’ will address Brandi Redmond’s racist video ‘head on’ (Page Six) "The next season of “Real Housewives of Dallas” will address some of the cast’s racist remarks, according to star D’Andra Simmons. Simmons, 50, told Page Six of Redmond’s scandal, “We will address that first thing head on. I think that’s very important for the show. We can’t just sweep it under the rug, especially since it was such a big deal for people and they were very upset about it.” The Hard Night Good Morning CEO implied that some other conversations surrounding race — aside from Redmond’s remarks — will take place on the upcoming season, which is currently in its last weeks of filming. “I can’t really talk about the other cast members, but there’s another reason why we had to do that, as well,” she said. “You’ll have to wait and see [what that is].” Simmons said in regards to Locken’s insensitive remarks from Season 4 about her co-star Kary Brittingham’s Mexican heritage, the cast doesn’t “really talk about that” this season since Locken, 53, is no longer on the show. Conversations about race will not only be a focal point on “RHOD,” but also in “My Brothers’ Crossing,” a film Simmons co-produced with her husband, Jeremy Lock, a former photojournalist."

  • Former Real Housewives of Sydney star Krissy Marsh says the drama on the show 'wasn't scripted' and that producers were shocked by how nasty and toxic the cast were (Daily Mail/Back from Reality Podcast) "The Real Housewives of Sydney was infamously dubbed 'too extreme' to air in the US. And in a new interview, cast member Krissy Marsh claims that not only was the drama not scripted, but that producers were blindsided by how nasty the cast turned out to be. Speaking to the Back From Reality podcast, the 48-year-old said: 'I don't think even the producers knew what they were getting.' She added: 'I don't think they realised how crazy and how nasty some of these women were.' The former reality star said that none of the drama was fake, and that producers didn't even need to encourage anybody to drink because the women 'were getting drunk on our own accord'. Krissy said that things got so nasty and vicious at one point that she quit the show during filming to try and protect her family. Krissy revealed that she rallied some of the other cast members together and that they all walked out on a scheduled promotional shoot for the show until producers agreed to remove a potentially defamatory scene from the series. 'They had no option but to basically cut out and write out what had been said that night,' she said. While Krissy declined to reveal what exactly was said, she said it was much worse than the drama that viewers saw on screen and that it was something that could've affected her children. She added that the mystery castmate that said the remark about her family was 'not of sound mind'."
  • Real Housewives' Gizelle Bryant 'disturbed for days' by Candiace and Monique 'brawl' (Daily Star UK exclusive) "Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, Gizelle, 49, revealed just how shell-shocked she was about the alleged incident. The mum-of-three told us: "I was completely shocked, I was disturbed for days afterwards. "When we film we have real emotion but we always have found a way for things not to escalate to that level and for it to get there was never something that I thought would happen, so I wasn't happy." She continued: "But it allowed us, on the other side of it, to really have some good discussions about who and what we are as black women in this country, and what we represent. "So if there's any silver lining, it's that we were able to talk about what matters and to kind of hold ourselves up to a level that we're proud of." Re: the men of Potomac getting involved in the franchise, Gizelle laughed: "I think they want to hold a champagne glass [in the opening credits], I think they want to be Housewives! I really don't understand it. And we see more of that this season as well." The beauty joked that she would "co-sign" the decision if producers were to make Michael a featured Housewife in the opening credits, adding: "Michael gets into more trouble than anyone else," Gizelle told us. "Michael gets into all kinds of nonsense. "I don't really know how it was handled between he and Ashley because they have their own personal things, I wasn't there, so I'm curious to see those things just as much as everyone else is." But she teased big things to come, as she cryptically finished: "Michael Darby at our season finale, he stole the show."
  • Former Black Female TV Execs Launch New Production Company For Diverse Storytelling (Forbes) "Lauren Grace Media, a new production company helmed by two veteran reality television executives, has entered the discussion with a clear mission: To tell diverse stories that people of color can relate to. The company is owned and operated by Dorothy Toran, a former producer for Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Leslie Farrell, a former vice president of production at NBCUniversal and Bravo Media. “I had been on Jersey Housewives for six or seven years,” says Toran, now president and executive producer of Lauren Grace Media. “Just like everything else, it had been a wonderful experience, but you always get to a point when you are doing something for a really long time and you hit a wall creatively and want to explore what's next. I really wanted to be able to tell stories that I wanted to tell.” But the duo’s professional history has certainly come in handy: Their first project, a 90-minute special titled Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment, aired on Bravo TV, Toran and Farrell’s former company, earlier this month. The special features an in-depth discussion on issues of racism between reality stars including Kandi Burruss and Gizelle Bryant, who weighed in with their personal experiences. “When you think of people who are wealthier than you, famous, or celebrities on television, you think that their life is different,” says Farrell, senior vice president of development and executive producer of Lauren Grace Media. “But what I think that Race in America really showed is, as a Black person in this country, it doesn't matter what echelon you are on. We all share these experiences because racism is systemic.” (more in article)

2020.08.23 00:33 Khalophrecia (Long read) Times (U.K) investigation - Trail of couples butchered in their beds sparks fears of a serial killer at large

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/trail-of-couples-butchered-in-their-beds-sparks-fears-of-a-serial-killer-at-large-8qdfmtvfc
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/string-murder-suicides-north-west-22563238.amp
That Saturday lunchtime in Gravel Lane in Wilmslow, Cheshire, was like any other. Cars trundled to the shops, children kicked balls in the playing field and just up the road the tall, kindly figure of Howard Ainsworth could be seen taking advantage of the spring weather to mow his precious lawn.
A former parks gardener, 79-year-old Howard was devoted to his petite 78-year-old wife, Beatrice — known as Bea — and was fretting a little that day because she had been laid low with a stomach bug. At about 2pm his neighbour Margaret Farror popped her head over the fence to ask how Bea was feeling.
It was the last time that either Howard or Bea was seen alive. In a witness statement to the police, Farror would later say that Howard seemed perfectly happy and friendly as he chatted. There was nothing in his demeanour to suggest unspeakable actions a few hours later.
The next morning Bea was found lying face up in her nightie on the bed with a knife in her forehead. Her head had been hit several times with a hammer and a pillow half obscured her face. Howard lay next to her in his pyjamas, his head propped up against the headboard and hooded with a bag. The police declared the case to be a murder suicide.
Despite the extremity of the violence, the police investigation regarded the key piece of evidence as a suicide note seemingly written by Howard of his own free will — and the coroner agreed. The case file was closed and the story of the double death in Gravel Lane might have ended there.
But three years later there was another apparent murder suicide in Wilmslow. There were many grisly parallels, besides the location. A devoted elderly couple — Donald and Auriel Ward — were found lying in their bloodstained bed, wearing nightclothes, at their home in Lacey Grove.
Auriel had been bludgeoned, stabbed and suffocated, and her head was partly covered with a pillow. Donald was found with a knife stuck into his heart. After a lengthy police investigation, the coroner found that Donald’s mind must have been disturbed and he — like Howard — had taken his own life after killing the wife he adored.
The four Wilmslow deaths presented the same mystery. There was no rhyme or reason to the severity of the violence, which was entirely uncharacteristic of either man, and — as far as anyone is aware — there was nothing in the loving relationships between the couples stretching back decades to suggest that their lives might end in such a brutal way.
The official explanation did not make sense to Christine Hurst, the coroner’s officer for Cheshire, who reviewed the police files on the cases in preparation for both inquests. Such was her concern, she put the case papers into a joint file “of special interest” and kept them in her office at Macclesfield police station. It would be 17 years before the papers would re-emerge.
Serial killer?
Today serious questions have emerged about whether both the cases could have been double murders, possibly by the same person. Moreover, three other murder suicides have also been identified involving elderly couples in the northwest, raising the chilling possibility that there still could be a serial killer at large. This weekend Cheshire police have launched a review into the matter.
The Wilmslow cases had always sat uneasily with Hurst, who was one of the most experienced coroner’s officers in the country. She has advised parliamentary committees and government departments and was called on to give evidence about the role of coroner’s officers in the inquiry into the serial killer Harold Shipman in 2002.
She has described in a written statement how the Ainsworth case did not feel “right” from the moment the envelope containing photographs relating to it came across her desk in spring 1996. Though accustomed to disturbing images because of her job, she was “appalled at the level of violence” that had been inflicted on Bea.
Three years later, in November 1999, Hurst happened to be in Macclesfield mortuary when Auriel Ward’s body came in, and she was instantly struck by how similar her wounds were to those she had seen in the photographs of Bea. Indeed, when she reviewed the photographs of the incident, she was surprised to see how much it resembled the earlier scene in Gravel Lane.
Hurst noted the likeness in the way the bodies were positioned in the bed; a knife was left protruding in both incidents; a pillow was set at the same angle over the two female victims’ faces; and their nighties had been left raised above their thighs, exposing them in an undignified manner. She raised these concerns with her colleagues in the police who were investigating the Ward case, but it led to nothing.
So when Hurst retired in 2017, she dug out the file of special interest and passed it on to her bright new successor, Stephanie Davies, a high-flyer who had been given a commendation by the chief constable two years earlier and held a string of qualifications in death investigations, crime scenes and forensic science. “I hoped that one day these two cases would be looked at again,” Hurst wrote.
That is exactly what Davies did. The new Cheshire coroner’s officer, who is an employee of the police, launched herself into the task of re-examining the murder files in her free time and took courses to further understand the science.
Extensive countrywide research turned up two more cases that had been deemed murder suicides and fitted the pattern. Remarkably, they were both just a half-hour drive away in the Greater Manchester area. In each case the elderly woman had been stabbed in the neck and suffered “blunt force trauma” to her head after seemingly being attacked by her husband, who had then taken his own life.
Davies enlisted the help of Steve Chancellor, one of America’s top “cold case” police forensic investigators, who has lectured and written about how offenders attempt to misdirect detectives at crime scenes. His review of the Ainsworth and Ward case files said vital clues were missed or misinterpreted.
He disagreed with the findings of the two police investigations and argued that both cases were likely to be double murders. “I would be looking at the same offender involved in both cases as a very real possibility,” he concluded, although he cautioned he could not be 100% sure.
Chancellor found it extraordinary that there had been similar cases in the Manchester area. “I am not sure of the statistical probabilities, but they have to be astronomical for four similar murder suicides, involving elderly couples, inside their homes, using blunt and sharp force trauma and/or asphyxia as a cause of death.
“Further, in all four cases, there is no history of domestic violence within the marriage and, more importantly, in each case the husband’s alleged perpetrator actions were described as out of character. I would suggest a detailed look throughout the country for any additional victims or other similar cases.”
Armed with Chancellor’s expert opinion, Davies compiled a 179-page report on five murder suicides — including an extra case she had discovered in Cumbria — that she believes are strikingly similar.
She handed the report to Cheshire police last month and is calling on the National Crime Agency and Interpol to urgently review cases across Britain and Europe to determine whether there are any more related murders. Cheshire police are looking at the new information in the report and have contacted the Greater Manchester and Cumbria forces in regard to the other cases.
We were shown a copy of the report by a source, but Davies declined to comment when approached last week.
In her report, she wrote: “It is certainly not the intention to disrepute the findings of those original investigators who worked on these cases 20 years ago. The knowledge that investigators have these days surrounding forensics, bloodstain pattern analysis and crime scene interpretation is more advanced.”
But she said she decided to raise the cases with the police because of “the concern that there is an outstanding offender, who could still be offending, and who needs to be brought to justice”.
It was also an opportunity to support the families of the victims, who might believe wrongly that “their fathers/grandfathers/ uncles/brothers have violently killed and degraded their wives. And finally, this is to ensure that the truth comes out for those deceased victims themselves.”
In her opinion, the interpretation of the murder scenes in the original investigations could well be wrong and instead the deaths might be the work of a serial killer who has not been caught.
Strange and illegal act It was the era of Britpop, and the “bigger than the Beatles” local band Oasis were playing to sold-out crowds at the Maine Road stadium in Manchester on the last weekend of April 1996, when the lives of Howard and Bea Ainsworth ended.
Farror, the couple’s neighbour, spotted their curtains were still drawn at 11.30am on Sunday, April 28, and called police after her attempts to contact them had failed. The awful sight that greeted PC Neal Miller is described calmly in his report, but this was no usual crime scene.
“I could see there was a male and a female body, both in their mid-70s, lying face up on a double bed,” wrote Miller. “The female was on the left side closest the door and the male was closest to the window on the right side. The female had a blood-soaked pillow over her face with a wooden handle of a kitchen knife sticking out of it . . . The male was lying to her right with a large clear plastic bag over his head.”
An initial reading of the scene suggested that Howard had killed his wife and then taken his own life. Crucially, a suicide note had been a left on a yellow pad that had been placed on the sideboard next to where the couple’s bodies lay. It was purported to have been written by Howard at 3.30am that day.
In spidery writing, its author matter-of-factly gave details of Bea’s recent illness from a virus and described a doctor’s visit earlier. Bea had become “delirious” and therefore, the writer said: “It looks as tho [sic] our lives have gone so have given her some sleeping tablets and I will have to throttle her.”
This extraordinary leap of logic in the note did not make sense for a number of reasons, not least that the doctor would later tell the police that Bea was merely suffering from a stomach bug, which should have improved after a few days, and she had no long-term illnesses. Howard also appeared to be in good health, so there was no reason for the couple to take their lives. But the suicide theory was given added plausibility when the police found paperwork in the couple’s home that showed they had joined the Scottish Voluntary Euthanasia Society six years earlier. A “Do not resuscitate” sign had been left at the top of the stairs and the back door had been left unlocked — both measures that were part of the couple’s euthanasia plan.
The suicide note ended with a tender and resigned acknowledgment that “we have had a good life together”. Yet it was difficult to reconcile the warmth of this sentiment with the evidence of extreme violence the police had witnessed in the bedroom.
Bea had been hit several times over the head with a hammer and may already have been dead when she was stabbed in the forehead with such force, the knife penetrated her skull and snapped at the end. Two hammers were found upstairs, one of which had been washed in the bathroom sink as if someone had attempted to destroy DNA evidence.
This was not a crime of compassion, as the suicide note had suggested. Christopher Docker, the Scottish euthanasia society’s executive secretary, would tell police: “We are concerned that none of our literature encompasses such a strange and illegal act and we are shocked by it.”
There was no respect for the victim: the knife was left lodged in her head and the hemline of her nightie had been pulled up to the hip as she lay lifeless on the bed. Chancellor, the US crime scene expert, believes these to be crucial facts that undermine the theory this was merely euthanasia. “I just do not see Mr Ainsworth acting in such a violent manner against his wife,” he opined. “Even if he decided to end their life as was his eventual plan — the means he used is inconsistent with his long-held belief to end their lives with dignity when they were ready.
“Mrs Ainsworth’s life was not ended with dignity. It was ended with violence and she was left in an embarrassing or degrading position. This is so out of character, I cannot concur with the initial police finding.”
Moreover, Chancellor believes that the scene could well have been staged to look like a suicide. A bottle of sedatives was left on a chest of drawers in the bedroom with two tumblers, as if they had been used as part of a planned suicide. But the toxicology reports did not find the pills had been taken by the couple, and their doctors confirmed that they had never been prescribed this particular sedative.
There was also little blood on Howard’s pyjamas or hands, which was surprising given the severity of the attack. It appeared that he had asphyxiated himself with a bag over his head, but the pathologist noticed bruises on his lips that were “not explained” by this manner of death. Such injuries can be caused when somebody is forcibly suffocated by an attacker, Chancellor noted.
Howard’s body was also found in an unusual position. He was lying flat, with his left hand wedged under his back and his head half propped up against the headboard. “In my opinion, this is consistent with him being placed into bed by an offender after he was already dead,” said Chancellor. Bea’s knees also had fresh abrasions, suggesting she might have been dragged across the floor to the bed. Most mysteriously of all, blood had spattered the bag that covered Howard’s head, the report noted. In the photographs, the droplets appeared to be consistent with the pattern of stains across the bedsheets caused by the impact injuries suffered by Bea. If this was so, then Howard could not have been the killer, as he was already lying dead when she met her violent end.
The ruled-out suspect John Ainsworth, the couple’s only child, stood to inherit the house in Gravel Lane. A note with his name and address had been left in the bedroom but, oddly, he was not contacted at his home in Derby by police until 2am on the Monday.
“Probably through shock, I went straight to bed and fell asleep,” he said in his police statement. In the morning, he went to the drug rehab charity where he worked and was given the day off when he told his boss what had happened.
It was John who described to the police his father’s long-held belief in euthanasia — a fact confirmed by a neighbour. “My father had told me that as soon as deteriorating health reduced their quality of life, they would enter into a suicide pact. My mother was present when this was discussed,” he told the police.
When we tracked down John, 66, to his new home on a remote country lane near the village of Tanyfron in Wrexham last month he was still bitter about the way the police had handled the case. “The police were fwits. They thought I’d done it. I had a f of a job with those Cheshire pig c***s,” said John, who has always denied any involvement in his parents’ deaths.
A divorced father with two children, he said that “the police had staked out my house in their ignorance”, but he was nowhere near the scene of the crime at the time his parents died. “I had gone to pick up my ex-wife and kids to take them down to London to see her dying mother,” he said, “so my mother-in-law came through for me, and that was my alibi . . . I was absolved.”
John said he spent the weekend at a friend’s house in Hackney, east London, and was driving back on the M40 when he saw a bird of prey, a red kite, “at exactly the time that my father was doing my mother in”.
He believes his father had been hit by a “very fast form of dementia” just before the attack. “I understand that my dad went nuts and his predilection for euthanasia and his manic depression took over,” he said. His father was a complicated man, he explained, who had been traumatised by fighting the Japanese in Burma during the Second World War.
The police had quickly discounted John as a suspect, and two months later they allowed him to supply some of the key evidence of his father’s handwriting, which was used to confirm that Howard had been the author of the suicide note and other papers found at the scene.
John explained that the house had been mysteriously cleared of paperwork before his parents’ deaths. “In the two years before he died, he destroyed just about all paperwork belonging to the family. There’s very little documentary evidence of anything . . . That I’ve never understood.”
He moved into his parents’ house for a few years after they died and was aware that there had been similar deaths. When our reporter raised the possibility that there was a second, related case in Wilmslow, he said: “In fact there’s a third.” He was referring to one of the two Manchester cases.
“I read newspapers,” he said. “As far as I am concerned there is no link between the three. They didn’t know each other . . . Was the second one a copycat? That’s not my story.”
Act of compassion At the end of a darkened lane lined with thick rhododendron bushes, the front gate had been left open to the imposing redbrick dormer bungalow. On Friday, November 26, 1999 a neighbour and his friend peered through the unlocked kitchen door to see the table set for breakfast in the late afternoon, but nobody seemed to be at home.
It was difficult to make anything out when the two men padded upstairs and ventured into the dimly lit main bedroom — until they found the light switch. There were the inhabitants, the Wards, a couple married for 45 years, lying together in bloodstained sheets.
The husband and wife were well liked in the affluent Cheshire town, which is known for its famous residents such as Sir Alex Ferguson, the then Manchester United manager. Mary Colborn-Roberts, a hairdresser who saw 68-year-old Auriel every week, recalled that her friend “always wore the nicest clothes — usually navy M&S clothes”. She described Donald, a 73-year-old former industrial chemist, as “the sort who wore a trilby hat. He would tip his hat at you when he walked past and hold doors for people — a proper gentleman.”
Just a week earlier, a local handyman called James Allen had been finishing off the couple’s new driveway when Donald had popped out for a chat. In his police statement, Allen recalls that Auriel had spotted Donald and brought a coat in case he caught a chill. Later Auriel rejoined the two men on the driveway and Donald took off the coat and placed it gently around his wife’s shoulders.
It was a small act of kindness between a seemingly happy couple that would be hard to reconcile with the official version of the events the police believed happened sometime around daybreak on Tuesday, November 23. The courteous grandfather is said to have gone berserk.
The sight that confronted the police investigators when the bodies were found three days later was harrowing. One officer still has uncomfortable memories. “I can honestly say I’d never seen anything like that bedroom. The violence on show was extreme,” he said. “I probably should have referred myself for counselling and therapy. But back then it wasn’t really the done thing. You just get on with it.”
Auriel had been bludgeoned in the head, stabbed in the neck and suffocated with a pillow. Donald had a gaping slit across his throat and a knife embedded through his ribcage into his heart. Both had injuries to their hands that were initially thought to have been sustained while defending themselves from an attacker. By the bed there were smashed pieces of a ceramic hot water bottle, which appeared to have been used as a weapon both to hit Auriel on the head then to stab her with its broken shards.
The police began a murder inquiry, but the pathologist’s report the next day cast immediate doubt on the idea that a third party was involved. The report found that Donald had cuts to his hands, groin, wrists and upper body. While accepting that some of these injuries could be in self-defence against an attacker, the pathologist was of the belief that they had been self-inflicted. However, the evidence did not rule out a third party intruder.
A retired detective who worked on the original inquiry said: “It was treated as a full-on murder investigation. We interviewed potential people of interest who were in prisons and chased down individuals who may have been in the area at the time.”
The police investigation took more than six months. The DNA sampling found the blood at the scene belonged to the couple. But it is not clear whether wider DNA tests were carried out to find other evidence of an intruder, and the police concluded that it was likely no other attacker was involved. “In the end, the most compelling argument we had was that Donald killed his wife and killed himself. Is it possible a third party could have been involved? Yes. There is a possibility,” said the detective.
But there were a number of facts that made the detectives feel uneasy. Donald had no known history of violence and yet the attack on his wife, if it was a murder suicide, was overkill. A review of the case by the now defunct National Crime Faculty (NCF) found the attack to be “expressive”, which means a level of violence was applied beyond that needed to kill her — possibly out of extreme rage.
So the official story is this: after clubbing his wife with the ceramic hot water bottle and stabbing her with its broken shards, Donald is then said to have gone downstairs and gathered a kitchen knife to attack her further. Both her main arteries in her neck were severed.
Her body was left with her nightie hitched up to hip height, before a blanket was folded back over her and a pillow was left partially over her face.
One of the key pieces of evidence that persuaded the police Donald carried out the attack was that his blood was found on the knife drawer in the kitchen as well as the light switch and the backdoor key. The forensics team believed the blood had dripped directly from one of the deep cuts to his right hand, which could have been defence wounds or, according to the police theory, cuts from using the ceramic shards as a weapon.
The NCF report found the discovery of the blood downstairs to be convincing evidence but acknowledged that it did not preclude all possible scenarios such as an “extremely skilful attempt to ‘stage’ the crime” to make it look like no third party was involved.
One of the aspects of the case that continued to confound them was the manner of Donald’s death. He had been stabbed three times in the groin area and his wrist was slashed but there seemed to be a lack of blood. A lot of blood, however, had seeped out onto his pillow from the deep cut across the front of his neck, which had severed his jugular vein.
The NCF report added: “We have concerns and need explanations as to the blood pattern on Mr Ward’s face. The position the body was discovered in does not match this blood patterning. It is our opinion that the blood pattern must have come when Mr Ward’s face was in contact with a heavily bloodstained object, and either Mr Ward or the object has moved, how?”
Most baffling of all is that Donald had severe bleeding from his cut throat — sufficient to end his life — and yet he is thought to have carried on harming himself. Would he then have had the strength to plunge a knife into his own heart?
Chancellor assessed this as unlikely, especially as there were no hesitation marks, which are normally seen when someone gathers the courage to self-inflict such a devastating final blow to themselves. “The injuries to the neck are so severe, I just can’t imagine he would then stab himself so deeply,” he noted.
Similar misgivings were expressed in the NCF report. “Is it feasible that someone is able to self-inflict Mr Ward’s neck injury and still be able to stab himself through the heart. Bearing in mind he is believed to be right-handed and the injuries to the right hand.”
The final blow caused only minor bleeding, suggesting that his heart may have already stopped. Could this injury have been inflicted by someone else after Donald had died?
The couple did not leave a suicide note. Despite the cloud cast over Donald’s role in the deaths, the couple’s family held a joint memorial, believing they should still be together, as they always had been. The family are reluctant to speak about the incident and say they have tried to get “closure” in the past 20 years, despite struggling to accept Donald was capable of such a crime.
But Auriel’s friend Colborn-Roberts recalled: “I went to their memorial service. I remember one of the sons telling me that they never believed their father could have done it. I don’t think anybody did. He said: ‘Dad was a chemist. He knew every chemical under the sun which could have killed them both peacefully. I don’t believe he’d have chosen that way.’”
Strikingly similar
In her report sent to Cheshire police, Davies argues that both cases are double murders and show signs that attempts have been made by the perpetrator to misdirect the police into believing that there was no third party involved. She lists numerous significant similarities between the cases. They include the night clothes, the position of the two bodies, the method of attack, the nighties pulled up, the women’s faces partially covered by a pillow and their wedding rings on display.
In addition, she argues that both male bodies had been moved or rearranged after death, and that the attacks were “out of character” because there was no history of domestic violence or psychiatric illness. Her report says these are signs of a “signature behaviour” that an offender repeats in order to satisfy some psychological or sexual need.
Fearing that such an offender may have committed similar crimes, she carried out an extensive search, including making freedom of information inquiries across the country, and found 39 cases of elderly couples discovered together after suspected murder suicides between 2000 and last year.
When she narrowed her search down based on the injuries documented at Wilmslow, she identified three cases. All happened to be in the northwest: two close by in Greater Manchester and one in Cumbria. In her report, Davies makes clear that she cannot be sure these murder suicides are linked to the Ainsworth and Ward cases because she did not have access to police files.
The report does find some “striking” similarities with the Wilmslow deaths. But these three cases are not clear-cut and all have complicating factors that may have tipped the balance when the police were deciding whether the husband had the motivation to murder his wife and take his own life.
The three other cases
On February 21, 2000, a couple were found dead in their home in East Didsbury, Manchester, with extensive head and neck injuries. It was just three months after the deaths of the Wards and detectives from Manchester instantly contacted Cheshire police because of the similarity between the cases.
According to Davies’s report, the body of Violet Higgins, a 76-year-old former policewoman, was discovered in her nightie on the marital bed after being bludgeoned with a rolling pin and stabbed in the neck with a pair of scissors. Reports said she had been beaten “beyond recognition”. She had been attacked while sleeping and was found huddled under a duvet.
The body of her husband, Michael, a 59-year-old former security guard, was in the spare room in his pyjamas. He had been stabbed in the throat and garrotted with a coat hanger. A bottle of pills was scattered across the bathroom floor.
The police quickly dropped the investigation, believing it was a murder suicide. The inquest heard evidence that Michael was suffering from Parkinson’s disease and his wife had threatened to put him in a home, a possible motive for the killing. He had also been to a solicitor to discuss the possibility of divorce.
However, the coroner, Leonard Gorodkin, remarked specifically on the fact that the couple had enjoyed a happy marriage and while finding that the case was a murder suicide, he said it was far from clear what had driven Michael to such an attack. “I don’t know what led to them falling out, but terrible violence took place that was completely out of character with Mr Higgins,” he said.
Davies’s report speculates that this may have been a double murder by someone who was attempting to make it look like a suicide. “The combined methods of sharp-force injury to the throat, the pills thrown on the floor and . . . the coat hanger around the neck all in combination strikes as a very rare and unusual suicide method. These method(s) and signs of suicide, could therefore be indicative of exaggeration at the scene, ie where an offender tries to make it obvious to the police that the death was due to suicide.”
Her report also raises questions about whether the November 2008 deaths of Eileen and Kenneth Martin on the eve of their 55th wedding anniversary might have been linked to the other alleged murders. Eileen, a 76-year-old former printer, was killed by blows to the head with a blunt instrument — possibly a hammer — and had cuts to her neck and wrists. Her body was found in the garage at their home in Davyhulme, Greater Manchester, alongside Kenneth, a 77-year-old retired steel erector, who is said to have slashed his own throat, cut his wrists and hanged himself, according to the report.
It was presented in newspapers at the time as a “mercy killing”. Kenneth had suffered from prostate cancer and he was struggling to look after his wife, who had severe dementia. He had expressed concern that if he died first then Eileen would become a burden to their children and had told his daughter, “When it’s my time to go, it’ll be her time to go”, but she believed the remarks to be just attention-seeking. On the night before their deaths he broke down in tears and told his daughter he could no longer cope. She reassured him she would “come round every day” to help.
However, this case is not entirely clear-cut. Davies’s report points out that the brutal injuries inflicted on Eileen were not at all consistent with a mercy killing. Furthermore, Kenneth was frail and had difficulty walking, raising questions about whether he had the physical power to carry out such an attack.
The last couple identified in the report were Stanley Wilson, 92, a former quarry worker, and his 89-year-old wife, Peggie, from Kendal in Cumbria. During a long retirement filled with bowling, Scrabble and needlework, the loving couple were often spotted around town holding hands.
Sometime overnight on February 17 or February 18, 2011, Stanley, who had recently suffered significant loss of sight, is believed to have carried out a frenzied and prolonged attack on his retired teacher wife in the front bedroom. She was hit on the head and face, strangled and then stabbed with a knife in the neck several times, severing her jugular vein. Stanley is said to have killed himself with several stab wounds to the neck.
Was this a double murder? The inquest heard Stanley had been released from the Royal Lancaster Infirmary the day before and had been expressing paranoid fears that his wife, son and the nursing staff were trying to poison him.
Certainly, the couple’s son, Graham, believes that his father committed the crime because of mental illness, even though — as his wife, Barbara, pointed out — Stanley “worshipped the ground she [his wife] walked on”. Graham added: “It was horrible, but I would never have suspected foul play.”
There were, however, several parallels to the stabbings in the Ward case in particular, Davies’s report notes.
It goes on to profile the type of person the killer might be. Davies believes he would be a younger man more powerful than his victims. He is likely to have befriended his victims, which is why they would allow him to enter homes. The report suggests that the murderer “had a strong hatred toward women, especially domineering females”.
It concludes: “This individual will not stop killing until someone or something stops him . . . The acts of dominating the victims, carrying out the murders, and fooling the police, are all addictive to him. He will have meticulously planned each murder, ensured he left no forensic evidence and followed the cases in the media.”
Alarm bells
In the preparation for this article, we asked Peter Kirkham, a former detective chief inspector who served for 21 years in the Metropolitan police, to review the case files. He was instantly struck by how unusual the two Wilmslow cases were.
He said: “The knife left in the head is strange. That is one of the genuine things that immediately for me rang bells. It’s a significantly higher level of violence and quite extreme violence for this ‘mild mannered couple, never had a bad word in their lives’ situation.”
One of the main facts that did not fit, in Kirkham’s opinion, was the presence of a suicide note in the Ainsworth case. In her report, Davies speculates Howard Ainsworth may have been coerced by the attacker to write the note.
But Kirkham says he has never experienced an offender having so much control over the victims. “It doesn’t happen, in my experience . . . even if they’re frail and incapable of very much.”
However, Kirkham does believe that the case raises “sufficient serious valid concerns to merit a review of these deaths”. He said the Cheshire review should ask an experienced criminal profiler to review the report initially, followed potentially by blood-spatter and pathology experts.
“The report makes allegations that there may be a serial killer on the loose and provides a large number of reasons for coming to that conclusion. Those allegations should now be examined.”
This weekend Nazir Afzal, the former chief prosecutor for the northwest, said: “The concerns raised in this report need to be taken very seriously. We could potentially have a serial killer in our midst. There needs to be a proper review of these cases and others which carry similar hallmarks.”
Chester MP Chris Matheson said police must act swiftly. “The implications don’t bear thinking about if there is an offender responsible for a series of what were dreadful crimes.”
Cheshire police said: “We are in receipt of the report and it is being reviewed. This is a piece of research which has been undertaken by the staff member, independently from her role within the constabulary. As with any case that has been closed, where new information comes to light, it is reviewed and acted upon if appropriate. We have notified both Greater Manchester Police and Cumbria Constabulary.”
Further victims?
Donald and Aurial Deceased Donald, 73, and Auriel Ward, 68. Date bodies found November 26, 1999. Location Wilmslow, Cheshire.
Happily married for 45 years, the smartly dressed couple doted on their grandchildren. Known for his impeccable manners, Donald, a retired chemist, was seen being affectionate towards Auriel, an ex-nursery school teacher, days before they died. Their son said he never believed his father was capable of such an act.
Crime scene
Their bodies were found in bed. Donald was wearing pyjamas and Auriel was in a nightdress. She had been struck over the head with a ceramic water bottle and had stab wounds to her neck. Donald’s neck had been cut open and a knife plunged into his heart.
Michael and Violet Deceased Michael, 59, and Violet Higgins, 76. Date bodies found February 21, 2000. Location Didsbury, Manchester.
Violet, an ex-policewomen, and Michael, a former security guard, had been described as “the perfect couple” by friends. Michael had Parkinson’s disease and his wife was considering putting him in a home. But his brother said he was never “capable of hurting anyone”.
Crime scene Violet’s body was found in her nightdress in the couple’s bed while Michael was in his pyjamas in the spare room. She had been beaten over the head with a rolling pin and stabbed in the neck with scissors. He had cuts to his neck and was strangled with a coathanger twisted round his neck.
Kenneth and Eileen *Deceased Kenneth, 77, and Eileen Martin,76. Date bodies found November 10, 2008. Location Davyhulme, Greater Manchester.
The devoted couple were on the brink of celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary. Kenneth, a retired steel erector, had cancer and had been struggling to care for Eileen, a former printer, who had dementia. Their family said they could not comprehend what had happened.
Crime scene
The couple’s bodies were both found in their garage. Eileen had severe head injuries and cuts to her wrists and neck. Kenneth was found hanged with a slashed throat.
Deceased Stanley, 92, and Peggie Wilson, 89. Date bodies found February 18, 2011. Location Kendal, Cumbria.
The “loving and happy” couple are said to have had many friends. Stanley, a retired quarryman, was a bowling enthusiast, and Peggie, a former teacher, loved painting and needlework. Shortly before their deaths, however, Stanley had begun suffering from acute mental illness and paranoia.
Crime scene
Both were found dead in their bedroom. Peggie had blunt-force injuries to her head and numerous knife wounds to her neck, one of which severed her jugular vein. Stanley had lethal cuts to his neck and body.

2020.08.19 06:03 Ashcat99 Villain Deep Dive: Cheshire

Next up I'll be delving into Cheshire, a definite fan favourite among the villainous characters due to her key relationships with Artemis and Will.
Comic Version: Most of this will be familiar, a professional assassin who specialises in poison, developing a relationship with Roy Harper (amongst others, femme fatale villain so there's like 3 short marriages in her history), having a child. And nuking Qurac to set her back up as a villain. Mmm.
Setup: Setup as a masked assailant, the Cheshire mask being popularised in the Teen Titans cartoon, her identity apparently unknown to authorities (as Kaldur questioned what she looked like under the mask), this is used to reveal her connection to Artemis. Being made into Artemis sister, another daughter of Sportsmaster, is a notable change that connects her to the main cast immediately, and plays on Artemis' insecurities in a way Sportsmaster is a little too serious and antagonistic for at this stage in the series and Artemis' development.
Expectations: Pretty much from her first appearance, people expected her and Will to get together. When she began flirting with him in Targets, this was pretty cemented towards fans expecting the stories with Lian (including the Cry for Justice.) to occur.
As Season two went on, she was seen as redeemed in/by her relationship with Will, Lian and Artemis. This is something that kept within fan perspectives, even as she worked with Sportsmaster in revenge for Artemis. In season 3, it was a surprise to most that they were no longer together, and was taken (and by most still taken) as a given that they will get back together.
Actual Appearances: She appears often, 14 episodic appearances along with a decent outline of S1-S2 timeskip events via the Red Arrow Journals. I'll give more of an overview rather than full detailing to touch on key arcs.
In Infiltrator and Targets, we see her in action as a full member of the League of Shadows carrying out assassinations. These episodes also begin the arcs connecting her with Artemis and Will, their sister-ly secrets and flirtations respectively. These both come to a head in Insecurities; with her two connected figured clashing quite directly. Will at Artemis' throat over her secrets, Artemis in disgust at him "dating" her sistea supervillain. She plays with both of them expertly; being fully aware of both of their secret natures (as she had witnessed the Broken Arrow situation). In Usual Suspects, she's the instigator for the Light's attempt at removing the Team from the equation prior to enacting their mind control plan. She is purposely obvious about her presence, luring them into a trap. Here, she saves her sister, showing that she does care. Later, she leaves Sportsmaster sink into the ground. Backing up the animosity that has been present between the two, him being abusive the reason she left home - left Artemis - in the first place, she has no loyalty to him.
In Red Arrow's Journals, she continues her arc with Red Arrow, standing in his way constantly and continuing her flirtations. Red Arrow gives in, figuring he can use her to get into the Shadows to find Roy. He falls for her, recognising that she is deeper than a simple villain. She even chooses him over the Shadows. But he doesn't return the favour; he does not choose her over his quest for Roy. She leaves, pregnant and unwilling to raise a child with someone who isn't able to give their full care. Keep this in mind.
For Season 3, Cheshire continues her arcs with Roy and Artemis, but not in parallel (or seemingly not). First, she deals with Roy. Bringing in Lian, offering him one final chance to pull his act together and be a family, one last chance at finding Roy. They work together as a well-oiled duo against the Shadows, showing their history of working together as a couple. With Roy found, we have Satisfaction. And this signals the shift between the two arcs. Standing above Artemis' Grave alongside Sportsmaster, she swears revenge against Kaldur. It is important to first note here that Lian is shown here as Artemis' middle name, which connects the Will-Lian plot to her relationship being relatively positive with Artemis. For the rest of the season she works fully with Sportsmaster, still annoyed at him, but more motivated by her love for Artemis and desire for revenge. This is widely considered good, it shows her as a good sister. But, immediately as Will finds Roy, Cheshire goes back to being an Assassin, disconnecting herself from her family.
For Season Three, she appears estranged from Will and Lian. She sees herself as unable to leave the assassin life to care properly for her daughter. Most people, Will and Artemis included, see her coming back as what should happen, dismissing the ideas that she is unfit because she loves them (and she absolutely does, no denying that.). But, recall why she initially left Will while pregnant. She is unable to give up the Life to properly care for her daughter. She doesn't want to repeat the mistakes of her mother and father. She might be good at heart, but when it comes to it, she becomes an assassin again without a second though even when it means working with her abusive father. The season ends with no resolution that puts them back together, besides Will making an attempt to move on.
Meta Perspectives: The biggest thing to me is just the decision to make her Artemis' sister, and how they use the parallel stories of Cheshire with Artemis & Cheshire with Will, to add new dynamics even while focusing on one side of that through the parallel development, and creating an interplay between Artemis and Will from it as well.
More to Come: So, most people I imagine still expect a happy ending for Will and Cheshire. I did too until recently, because that is how the story always seems to go with that set up. But Young Justice doesn't tell the same stories, especially in its portrayals of realistic relationship types rarely seen in media (such as Dick and Zatanna's teenaged romance that doesn't last). I think that we'll see a conclusion, but it will not be one where they are together. Instead it will show that sometimes relationships, even when a child and marriage are involved, can fail. Even when there's love and care between good natured people, it can be irreconcilable. I think there will be a happy conclusion, to show that this is okay, that Lian will be okay. Just that they wont be together and everyone involved has to move on from that.
I think we could continue to see her as a free-lancer, a mercenary, in semi-antagonistic roles as we did in Tryptich, but as her arcs with Artemis and Will reach their conclusions we may see even less of this.

2020.08.10 04:59 EtherealAeterna Sleep paralysis after microdosing

This is my micro dose experience with one question at the end. If you get through it, thanks in advance, if you don’t, I get it. :) There are some uncomfortable parts in this post, so I don’t want to scare anyone who is just microdosing for the first time. Everyone’s tolerance level is different, so as a sensitive soul, I would recommend starting with a lower dosage than .05g and work up from there.
I have tried micro-dosing psilocybin mushrooms this month, 2 days on, 5 days off, with a total of 4 times. I didn’t do the normal Stamets’s protocol, but I will in the future. The first day, I brewed some tea with an inch of a small stem. I only took a few sips, and waited it out. All of my senses were definitely heightened. I sat outside, on my front porch with my dog. I was feeling a bit anxious, and paranoid, yet calm, and self aware, but more aware of my surroundings, in a positive way. All I wanted to do was get some thoughts out on paper, like my brain had something to tell me. I wrote down, “You won’t be paranoid, if you just live life.” That night I felt a bit wired, I took the micro dose around 4 pm, but I was able to get to sleep.
Side note, I have been dealing with paranoia for the past 3 years, due to smoking excessive amounts of weed while prescribed Venlafaxine (for social anxiety and depression). Sadly, at that time I was in an abusive, narcissistic relationship. It was very hard to get out of, if anyone has ever been in a narcissistic relationship, you feel very empty by the end, as if you don’t exist.
I haven’t smoked weed since February this year and have been off of Venlafaxine since June of 2018. I still have the after effects of paranoia, unfortunately. To add, I also have been diagnosed with C-PTSD, with Depersonalization/derealization, from childhood mild trauma, emotional neglect. I don’t own these diagnoses, because adding meditation, yoga, and dance back into my life these past two months (practicing on my own), has allowed me to release these past, negative, built-up thoughts and patterns that ruminate. Some days I get relief, so I know keeping busy and focusing on positive behaviors and affirmations help immensely. I’m not new to the game, I’m new to implementing the behaviors. The difference between knowing and doing.
Back to my Md’ing experience.
The second day, I was feeling pretty excited of the possibilities with md’ing. I grinded up my homegrown mushrooms and took under .1g, although I didn’t measure. I realize I’m very sensitive to Rx’s, herbs, etc. I took this dose in the morning, and the experience was very scary. I felt a panic attack coming on, which I haven’t experienced in 7 years (my last one was induced by stress and smoking weed). I got up from my bed and started doing jumping jacks, anything to get out as much energy as possible. I took it as, I had so much blocked energy that needed to be released. At the same time, I kept saying to myself, “I am enough, I am enough. I am enough!” I felt on repeat and I couldn’t stop. I laughed about it and then cried at the absurdity, that I didn’t feel that I was enough. I felt a bit manic, because thoughts were rapidly firing in. I looked at my dog, (my ex’s dog, she’s staying with me), I felt the need to apologize to her. She is incredibly sweet and sensitive, so she DEFINITELY sensed something was up. She seemed scared, and wouldn’t look at me, maybe I was too in her face. Apparently I needed forgiveness. The scary part was it looked like she was staring at someone to the left of me, and I felt a presence.
I went downstairs to the bathroom. I saw what looked like a queen ant, flying around (do they fly?) the shower curtain. I remember thinking that this one bug was my equal, like another human being. I got the feeling that I could not kill this bug. The other thought I got was without bugs, we would not exist. I haven’t killed a bug since.
I went into the downstairs bedroom where my grandparents used to stay. I felt their energy. I felt that they were extremely good people and I cried a bit about it. The grandfather passed on and the grandmother lives in long term care. They come from my step-dad’s side, and I never knew them too well, maybe I saw them three times my whole life. I just wanted to stay in that room though with their good energy.
This is where it gets a bit scary. I heard this buzzing sound, like a fly was in the room. All of a sudden, I saw a bug needed to come out of my throat. I didn’t see it, I felt the image of it. Like these bug-like hands (kind of human-like) was trying to come out of my throat through my mouth, but I wouldn’t let it. It felt like a purge of some sort. Interpreting it now, I’ve struggled with social anxiety, and feeling like I don’t have a voice at times, so I felt this purge in the form of a bug trying to set my voice free or set something free. I felt extreme resistance. I also felt a dark force behind me, where my tattoo is on my back, below my neck.
This was all terrifying, I assumed it was mini trip, not a micro dose anymore. The rest of the “trip” I was scared of bugs, of that mental image happening again. I felt like I was seeing bugs out of the peripheral of my eye, some large spiders, but they weren’t there. It stayed with me for a week. I remember being afraid of bugs and spiders as a child but not in my adult years, could be a residual suppressed thought that needed to be released. I have many of those. Later on I realized there were some trapped bugs in the skylight above me that I was hearing, so the buzzing was real.
Obviously this needed to happen, but I wonder why in the form of bugs? Maybe since I live alone, and all I see is the occasional bug coming in and out of my house, seems to be a lot lately. The mushroom showed me my present reality, that the bugs are my only friends right now, during quarantine. Haha!
That night I felt another panic attack coming on as I was heading to bed. I had to talk to someone so I called my step-dad (who I hadn’t talked to for a year) and he was supportive and non-judgmental. It was very helpful. I felt loved for that moment and calmed down.
The next few days I did feel more myself than I had in years, which is hard to explain, after living in a reality, that you thought was normal, or had become your normal. But I was afraid of seeing BUGS, I couldn’t get over that thought. My skin felt sensitive, as if I was feeling a bug crawling on me. Paranoid much, YES, but for totally different reasons. It wasn’t for the usual, “someone is looking at me,” paranoia, it was NOW for when is a bug going to attack me, paranoia. I guess my brain is switching things up.
I’m usually a great sleeper, I could get to sleep early and sleep for 9 hours straight. After these doses, I no longer can. I’ve had some very vivid dreams since my dose. One was along the theme of the movie ‘The Truman show’, that I was living in a false reality, and was lured by the actress Amy Adams, to meet my creator, which was a man. Hmmm?! I ran away before our meet and greet and everyone knew I was gone, and “GOD” went searching me. I kept dodging him, I was always running and he found me so quickly with out breaking a sweat, before I woke up out of my REM cycle and into sleep paralysis and my first hallucination, he said, “but YOU said you wanted to date him!” I assume he was talking about my last difficult relationship. That I created my reality. I made the choices and my creator, which is me, produced my reality.
I woke up. I was slowly opening my eyes and I saw a shadow on my wall in the corner from the reflection of a tree from my window. The shadow turned into a floating Cheshire cat and caterpillar, like a mixture of the Alice in Wonderland characters, with a hint of Jafar’s (from Aladdin) overly sexualized energy. He smiled at me, and licked his teeth. HE WAS REAL! And then I closed my eyes and then opened again and he was gone. This dream with a hallucination happened maybe three days after my micro dose. I’ve also had the sensation of mind melting, I’ve heard of it, but never experienced it until a few days after my dose. This happened in a sleep state, right before I woke up.
I have since then been getting sleep paralysis episodes (I’ve had this happen two times), with the heaviness in my chest sometimes feeling like I’m going to die, so I wake myself up, or try to. Maybe my mind and body have some unfinished business. Like it wants to have an EGO death, (maybe it’s trying to astral project? Happened once already.) That’s how it felt when I was coming back to a normal state, that still something was stuck in my throat and needed to come out.
So my question after this long post, and thank you to whomever got through this with me...has anyone experienced sleep paralysis since microdosing? Also, I’m aware I’ve said the word FELT maybe too much, but I’ve felt a lot SHIT, to say the least.
Lessons: Setting is everything! I kept reading that through out this thread and in other subreddits having to do with shrooms. I didn’t listen, I can be impulsive, which is one reason I wanted to experiment with md’ing, but the mushroom, Golden Teacher, in my case, will teach what you need to be taught. Also drink lots of water. I didn’t realize how dehydrated I was.
WISDOM: I have felt a big shift in my personality. I wouldn’t be able to write this without letting my guard down. To speak my truth. To let go of fear!
Thanks for listening!

2020.08.10 03:38 ThePootisPower ThePootisPower releases a blog post regarding the Aftermath of the 14th General Election, and what the Losers need to do.

I'm not exactly an eloquent writer at the best of times, so I'm going to cut straight to the chase.
Blurple has a majority which is mildly scary for me, Labour is dead, Lib Dem's are currently not just over the moon but have actually Go Space'd and built a lunar colony.
However, while rightly people are focused on these parties, there are some other parties to discuss, so let's do that I guess.
Basically this article is basically Tesco's Own Brand "How and why the government collapsed and what the Conservatives can do to get back into power".
The People's Movement:
From 6 to 3 seats. And I said at the last election stream that you guys were gonna be a serious force to consider in the future. Well, fuck me right?
Anyways, small parties live and die on list seats. I know full well that you lot run where you want to, because you're personally attached to the places your candidates run (see: Raymondo in Cheshire, Df44 repeatedly targeting the same seat again and again), but either you need to just be the old Honeydew socialist club that is out for fun, not to win, (which isn't my cup of tea but I can respect), or you can start playing to try and win. TPM is the last hope for the hard-left anarchists, either you can act as a retirement home for the commies or you can be the second coming of the RSP. Please pick one?
If you pick the latter, A: be willing to compromise in negotiations (why the fuck is Cornwall Independence a redline jesus christ) and B: make sure you place your candidates around your preferred constituencies' regions? Like, you have Cheshire and Lancashire South which have TPM bases (Raymondo set up Cheshire, Ravenguardian did a hell of a job holding the line against Tommy and clearly has support of a lot of parties). Put more candidates there. I know Jasmine has Cornwall to fight for, I know that Aisha will be fighting the Brain till one of them leaves the sim, but at some point you have to realise that these potshot "i want this constituency cause I live there, so I will run there" campaigns are not effective on the regional or national level?
TPM is a small party, and small parties need list seats. You need to angle for these list seats or you're going to be about as relevant as New Britain. Speaking of:
New Britain:
I mean if Matt and Adam are now both in NB, and they suddenly feel like having a semi-serious go of it, here's my suggestion. Run in the North East. Reasons:
Then again there's only 3 list seats so you best hope that the other parties do not contest the region heavily.
People's Unity Party:
Ok, so not actually a loser, in fact a very good performance for a party this small, but there are a couple things that are worth pointing out.
Firstly, well done in East of England: 4 solid campaigns that were responsible for your 2 seats on the list. This is incredibly good work. However, I think this could have been developed further. Your leader, SomeBritishDude, was away on a potshot in Somerset and Bristol. Did they do well? For a new party, yes: they got 179k votes. However, that's still 100,000 away from even remotely challenging Fried, and Fried was also being challenged by the Tory party. The campaign SBD made was good. The candidate placement wasn't. Avoid this in the future - you want to have all your candidates grouped together in the regions you can fit them in - since you really only had 6 active campaigners, you should look to expand and grow, then pick a second target region of 4 constituencies and put SBD and the other active campaigners (besides the East of England Gang of Four) there.
Also, right now you just look like BTEC Labour. Try to specialise a bit, make yourselves distinct. The reason no one takes you seriously is that everyone just thinks of you as "peak labour being labour" and being random splitters. Prove them wrong, create an ideology for yourselves. Now, yes, this is easier said than done, and one shudders to think what ideology you'll come up with given Harlaus, the Jreg of MHOC, is a member of your party, but having a unique identity is absolutely key to your survival and recognition.
Democratic Reformist Front:
Jesus wept. 3 seats. Sure, that's what you had before GE13, but given that before GE13 2 of those were london seats (and one was my South East list seat I gave to you as a parting gift), only having 1 london seat, 1 Welsh seat and 1 N.Irish seat and all 3 being list seats is... hardly ideal.
If your entire party is being propped up by devo parties, you either need to re-organise the entire WM party to fix what's wrong with it, dissolve WM and just focus on the devo nations (like the Greens should have done for GEXII), or merge into another party. Dissolving the DRF would be something of wasted potential, so let's shelve that idea. Let's also just rule out mergers: if you merge the DRF, you have to merge the Devo parties or you lose 1/3 of your bases: not only that, but whatever party you merge with will either be a right wing group that clashes fundamentally with Plaid, IPP and Scottish Progressives (and also probably your active WM candidates too), or will be a left wing group that clashes fundamentally with the right-wing and unknown-quantity papers that your party uses to pad out the constituencies and obtain a small number of votes on the constituency level that boosts representation at the List Level.
(M: TBH my internal knowledge of the DRF is very dated since I left ages ago, but I still recognise Gunnz as former MUSGOV GOP and I'd hazard a guess that Srajar is also a bit right-wing since the MUSGOV master sheet notes them as former GOP leadership. Some of their papers may not be that right wing, but in the end, the amount of non-left wing paper candidates always has prevented the DRF from taking a strong tack on ideology in line with Westminster Leadership's personal views which has fundamentally crippled it's ability to integrate into MHOC in any meaningful way - see the Reform coalition debacle and the reliance on papering it's way into list seats rather than developing meaningful ties to parties beyond TPM - who just endorse DRF cause they're republicans too - and the LPUK who like the DRF's direct democracy policies.)
I would suggest going through the WM party and simply asking the membership to decide what stance they want to take on the left-right spectrum. Find the ACTIVE members: you know, people like Lambbell, Ross Perot, SammySnail, ViktorHR, Gregor, the people who aren't out there losing deposits in their elections, and let them set out a coherent ideological agenda - if the papers disagree, bin off the papers, refocus the active members on London (or hell, even scrap london and work on a smaller region like the PUP did). Broad tent republicanism is just wishy washy "fuck the queen, love STV" bollocks that is great for getting a party off the ground and relevant, but not great for actually developing the party into something that sticks around - the DRF is clearly burning out hard and needs a real overhaul to remain relevant, and if it can't do that, then it needs to give up and dissolve.
The DRF's days of "republicanism is all we need to form a coherent vision" are clearly over. Gregor needs to decide whether he can adapt the DRF to fix this, or if he needs to walk away. Although, if he does, fuck knows who'll replace him.
(oh and also don't forget to modmail MP replacements this term that'd help too)
I'm gonna write a post up about Labour tomorrow, it's late and I wanna post this now.

2020.08.07 19:35 Angel466 [Bob the hobo] A Celestial Wars Spin-Off Part 0122

ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY-TWO
Five hours after Robbie left with Lady Col and Dr Griffin, he suddenly appeared in his new bedroom at the other side of the apartment to Sam and his father. The room that he knew would not have any witnesses. He ever so slowly turned in a tight circle, proving to himself that he was where he planned to be.
Realm-stepping they called it. Holy … wowsers! He could teleport!
Though the imposed word filter annoyed him. Lady Col had given him three clear warnings, telling him with each one that after the third warning he would lose the ability to swear for a month.
And then he had been presented with the Prydelands.
He hadn’t realised how much he liked to swear until the mystical gag-order came into play. Personally, he thought he should’ve had a lot more chances. The first time he swore when he fell into the night time shadow of a dragon that flew overhead shouldn’t have counted. Nor should it have counted when he met a…a…vinny werewolf in the front garden either. Eighteen feet tall mother—suckers with two sets of arms not including their legs growling at you from the standing height of a second storey building deserved a curse of fright in his opinion. Then, when it chuckled at him in a deep, grisly tone, Robbie had never been so tempted to punch it in the shins. Only … he wanted to live.
Still, uncool.
The Prydelands was as magnificent as the creatures that lived in it. He wasn’t an architect, but a ten-storey building tiled in what appeared to be wet mother of pearl running half a mile in either direction from the arching pair of front stairs that went up to a pair of double doors on the second floor was f-f-freakishly impressive.
Gateway had been his strike three. Watching all the different artworks on the walls have their colours drawn from them like they’d had paint thinner thrown on them and pour into the centre of the room to take a two-dimensional image of Angus bowing as he opened the back door. “Good evening, Mr O’Hara.”
It changed images to an old TV show where a guy and a tiny little guy dressed in white were standing on a boat dock. “Welcome to …”
Another change. This time Llyr was standing in Sam’s new bedroom, with Sam sitting cross-legged on his bed with the remote in his hands. “the Prydelands,” Llyr’s image said.
“Uhhh, hi?”
“Robert, this is Gateway. Gateway, this is Robert. Robert would like to know more about his ancestry. Would you be able to help him with this?”
Again the image changed, but this one had tears immediately start to flood Robbie’s eyes even as his hand reached forward of its own volition.
“Dad,” he whispered, watching how his father was in Central Park, carrying him as a young boy on his shoulders while his sisters played in the nearby playground. He was laughing and everything was so clear it was as if he were looking through a window.
Columbine took his hand and pulled it back to his side. “This imagery is of the past, sweetheart,” she said, patting his restrained hand with her other one. “All we can do is watch and learn from it.”
Another flash had his father carrying a newborn infant into a waiting room where his sisters, looking much younger again, bounced to their feet and crowded around him.
Tears still continued to flow down Robbie’s cheeks. He hadn’t realised how much he still missed his dad.
Further back through history. This time to where his dad was a boy crying as Memaw consoled him. On the floor beside them was the military notification of a death. Robbie knew this story too. His memaw had told him it, that weekend when they met. Papaw was killed entertaining the troops in Vietnam (or Korea or Cambodia – one of those sixties wars), leaving her and his dad all alone.
Another jump had his father a year or two younger, singing and dancing with a man with dark hair and bronze coloured eyes. Robbie knew even before his father said the word “Dad” that this was his grandfather.
Many more images came after that. Each with Robbie’s papaw in different settings. He didn’t change, though Robbie knew enough about military uniforms to recognise World War Two ones when they appeared in the image. His grandfather had been entertaining troops for thirty plus years?
Even further back, there was an image of his papaw as a young man in his late teens/early twenties, being seen off at a train station. The fashion of the woman put this around the mid-thirties, and she had a slight wave through her brown hair and dark brown eyes. “Promise me, you’ll write once a week,” the woman said.
“Mo-om,” papaw complained. “I’ll write when I can.”
Robbie’s great grandmother grabbed his papaw by the shoulder and prevented him from stepping up into the train. “Which is once a week, right, young man?”
“Yes, ma’am.”
“Good boy.”
Another change. Robbie’s papaw as a child, wearing a white mask while dancing on the street for people’s loose change. Everyone else was wearing masks too. “What happened here?” he asked, turning to Lady Col.
A deep sadness entered her eyes. “Have you ever heard of the Spanish Flu?”
Robbie shrugged. “A little, I think?”
“It was a terrible time. Worse than the wars that people fought against each other. In New York alone over twenty thousand people died at a rate of four to five hundred a day at the height of the outbreak. People had to wear masks for two years before a vaccine was found.”
“Wow, that’s…that’s horrible.”
“It wasn’t a fun time to be a doctor, that’s for sure,” Dr Griffin said.
Lady Col looked across at her and nodded in agreement. “We got through it, in the end.”
Another change had Robbie’s great grandmother sitting in a small boat with a dozen other women, each shivering with the cold. Men rowed them back to a ship marked ‘The Carpathia”.
“The Titanic,” Lady Col said, deep in thought. “We lost a few family members in that disaster.”
“Which is why the world has never been allowed to forget it,” Dr Griffin added.
Another change, only this time Robbie was torn by what he saw. It was obviously a consenting couple having sex in the bed of a first-class cabin, but due to the female being his great grandmother, it was also family. Of sorts. Eww.
“Braydon,” Lady Col said, folding one arm across her chest and rubbing her lips with the other. “Thank you very much for your assistance, Gateway. That has been most enlightening.”
The image changed to a man that looked a couple of years younger than Robbie, with black hair and the strangest, liquid gold eyes he had ever seen. He wore all black, like a Nazi officer, only his cloak was held around his shoulders by a golden clasp. “Anytime, sweet pea,” he said with a flourishing bow, and then the image broke apart and all the colours flowed across the room back into their original frames.
“Braydon?”
“Your great grandfather was Braydon Nascerdios, handsome, which confirms what we suspected about you.”
“Which was?”
“You come from the festivities line. Your great grandfather was the son of Yitzhak. Our wine specialist.”
As fascinating as he was sure all that was, finding out his ancestor hadn’t deliberately tried to keep him a secret but had in fact died before anyone knew was all Robbie needed out of that interaction. And he definitely didn’t want to see any more images of his dad. They were just too painful.
“So what happens now, Lady Col?”
“Now, I set you up with an apartment here in the Prydelands and teach you how to come and go without the need to spend any time in transit.”
Four hours later, having popped all over the world (with Lady Col acting as his guide) Columbine suggested that Robbie head home, which he did.
Alone.
Because he could.
Just then, the keys slipped into the front door and ever, ever so quietly unlocked.
Turning his ring back into a plain dress ring, Robbie quickly ran out to the living room/kitchen and rested his hip against the island with his arms folded across his chest as if Sam was in trouble. It had to be Sam. The others would try to be quiet, but only Sam would still do it like a returning teenager after curfew.
A very sheepish, yet bubbly Sam tried to kick off his shoes and tiptoe into the living room, coming up short when he saw Robbie. “Uhhh, hi,” he said, immediately turning the brightest shade of red that Robbie had ever seen on anyone outside of a sunburn.
Robbie dropped his arms and draped his upper half across the counter, resting his chin on his hand and grinning like the Cheshire Cat. “Well, well, well. Someone’s been … busy,” he purred, waggling his eyebrows suggestively.
And Sam went brighter than sunburn.
This was going to be good.

2020.08.06 13:05 Tommy2Boys #GEXIV [Cheshire] The Christening of Tommy3Boys

On the final day of the campaign, Tommy was annoyed that he would have to take time out to attend his son's christening. He had never seen the point of a christening but knew his wife wanted it so was going along with it. It was early morning when guests started arriving at Tarporley church. On the door, eelsemaj99 was ushering guests into the church and shaking their hands and handing them a small business type card. Whilst on the front it had a picture of Tommy2Boys and his son and the date for the christening, on the back it had some policies on for the upcoming election.
Several friends and close political allies showed up to the event, including Scotland's First Cabinet Secretary northernwomble and Conservative Party Deputy Leader MatthewHinton12345. Inside, Vitiating and ohprkl were discussing the campaign and how they thought the parties would do.
Eventually Tommy, Dame Brenda and Tommy Jr turned up. Brenda took the baby inside to chat to the vicar, whilst Tommy and Eels spoke outside.
"How is the campaign going then?" the former Prime Minister said.
"Pretty well I think. We've done a cracking job here in Cheshire and I know around the country it is the same." Tommy replied.
"Good good. And more importantly, ready for today?"
"Well, I don't know why we are here but Brenda wanted it so there we are."
They both walked in. As they did so, Yukub, who had been busy campaigning, was the last straggler to arrive.
"Sorry I am late. Crazy day" the Prime Minister said.
"Ja Ja don't worry I get it. Let's just get this over and done with."
Yukub took a seat near the back of the church. Tommy, Brenda and the baby then walked down the aisle to the front and took a seat. Sat next to them was brookheimer, model-willem and Dame Brenda's older sister Julia. The three of them were to be godparents to little Tommy3Boys.
As the service got underway, the water was crossed on the forehead and vows were said by the three godparents to protect baby Tommy. After the christening, the group headed to the local village hall for a quick reception before everyone needed to get back on the campaign trail. Whilst there, Brenda made a speech thanking everyone for coming.
"In hindsight, we should stop scheduling major life events in the middle of election campaigns frankly. But thank you all for coming anyone. I know my kid is in safe hands with Brookheimer, Willem and Julia looking out for him."
Brookheimer, who decided he wanted to speak, stood where Brenda was just stood.
"Ya know, it is a great honour to have been asked to be a godparent to little Tommy. To be honest, I've never much-liked kids, but there is something about being a godparent to one which makes you change your mind. And he has good genes as well this one. If little Tommy shows even an ounce of the same passion, dedication and determination of his father when it comes to speaking up for Cheshire and fighting to improve the lives of the people he represents, then they're one hell of a kid."
Willem, never one to be outshone by a Tory, decided they also wanted to make a little speech. He gave Tyler a dirty look before speaking.
"Yes well, all of that may be true, but all I know is that he has loving parents and a loving support of friends and family. The kid will do just fine whether they go into politics or not."
The party went on inside for another hour. Tommy, who was in the middle of a tough re-election battle, headed outside to make a phonecall. As he did, a cameracrew from the localnews got in his face.
"Is it appropriate to take time out of campaigning to have a party sir? How much time is being wasted here sir?"
Tommy looked annoyed. "Are you telling me I cannot celebrate the christening of my own son? What a palava. The people of Cheshire know who I am. They know my record they know my beliefs. I assume you are not live so you won't show this, but if you are live, to the people of Cheshire I say vote for the man who you know. The guy who has your back. The guy who will bring living costs down. Vote Tommy. Vote Tory."
Tommy walked off, hopping on the phone to his campaign manager. Inside, people began to say their goodbyes. Brenda, Julia and eels, who kindly volunteered so Tommy could continue campaigning, began clearing out the village hall whilst the godparents received their little gifts and headed off to do their own campaigning. As guests left, Tommy was slapping them on the back, which was actually sticking "Vote Tory. Save the NHS" stickers on their coats.

2020.08.04 00:04 Leather_Term Father of Jeffrey Epstein's 'secret' British girlfriend admits the family KNEW she dated the paedophile - and says things 'are just getting crazy' since the news broke

DailyMail.co.uk 03 Aug 2020
The father of Jeffrey Epstein's 'secret' British girlfriend has admitted that her family knew she had dated the disgraced paedophile.
Shelley Anne Lewis, 43, was in a relationship for three years with Epstein when Prince Andrew is accused of sleeping with sex trafficked teenager Virginia Roberts.
The Manchester-born 'spiritual entrepreneur', who is believed to have taken scores on flights on Epstein's 'Lolita Express' private jet, could now be approached by prosecutors to find out what she knows.
Asked by MailOnline if the family knew of her relationship with Epstein, her father Brian Lewis, 71, said: 'It is a difficult question to answer.
'As a young girl we knew she was seeing someone in New York.
'So yes we did'.
Speaking at the family's sprawling million-pound plus sprawling cottage near affluent Knutsford, Cheshire the retired businessman added: 'Now everything has gone mental.
'It is just getting crazy'.
One neighbour said: 'It's shocking that she's caught up with Epstein.
'The family are very nice and will be horrified to be linked to that man.'
Ms Lewis could be set to be asked for help by prosecutors in the case against Ghislaine Maxwell, 58, the British socialite who denies procuring girls for Epstein and faces trial in the United States next July.
There is no suggestion that Ms Lewis was aware of or took part in any criminality.
She grew up in the Cheshire countryside and once worked in the contemporary art department of Christie's auction house in New York.
There aged 22 she started dating Epstein in 1999 when he was a 46-year-old businessman until 2002.
Ms Lewis, who divides her time between London and New York, has so far been unavailable for comment but in previous interviews she has described how she was helped by a 'mentor' in New York who 'was so original in all his thought processes that he couldn't even see the box.'
She now runs a firm that hosts yoga retreats in America and previously owned companies offering 'lifestyle guru' courses to clients.
The blonde entrepreneur has been named in court papers in the US relating to Ghislaine Maxwell that were unsealed by a Manhattan court last week. 'Shelley' was named in an email from Maxwell to Epstein.
Mrs Roberts claims she had sex three times with Prince Andrew three times when she was a teenager after meeting him on a trip to London with Epstein and Maxwell in 2001.
He vehemently denies the claim.
Maxwell is in custody in the US charged with trafficking minors for her former partner Epstein.
