Interesting: I believe the policeman Brian Francois mentioned in the @InquiryCSA Westminster document who was running Operation Hatton (the Met's investigation into PIE) is the older brother of Mark Francois, the man with the red face and the missing cedilla.
He was referred to in IICSA OHY005576.pdf as Brain Franc#### (sic), Brain Francware (sic) and DS Brian France#### (sic).
He is said to have retired in late 1997.
He is the secretary of the Friends of the Metropolitan Police Historical Collection.
Brian was born to Reginald Francois and Ivy Francois nee Davis, latterly Tinkler in 1948.
He shows up in Company House records under Brian D Francois Toastmaster Limited.
His address linked to that record was given as 7 Glengall Road, Bexleyheath, Kent, DA7 4AL.
That @InquiryCSA document makes for interesting reading. I would urge you to call it up and read GB's account of intimidation of an investigating police officer.

Simply Google 'IICSA OHY005576.pdf'.
'Mark’s elder brother Brian Francois served for over thirty years in the Metropolitan Police and Mark takes a keen interest in local policing matters'.

I bet he does! With or without cedilla!

Nod, nod, wink, wink ...

MP Mark Francois' brother, Brian D Francois, is a Freemason ...
Brian Francois is actually mentioned by his full name in another IICSA document:
Mark François, the man who beat Hitler single-handedly in hand-to-hand fighting to save Britain from 1000 years of German hegemony, was Housing Minister. His main credential was serving as vice-chairman of the housing committee on Basildon Council.

Mark Francois was made Opposition Whip in 2003 by Michael Howard, the same Michael Howard who lead tributes to the 'brilliant' Leon Brittan following his death. Howard and Brittan were members of the so-called Cambridge Mafia.
dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2…
Mark Francois and Michael Howard are both involved in the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) think tank:
Mark François was appointed Vice-Chamberlain of the Household, a sinecure given to a junior Government Whip. As a member of the Royal Household, the Vice-Chamberlain accompanies the Queen at diplomatic and social events, particularly the annual garden party at Bucks Palace.
Here is Mark Francois, towering head and shoulders below the rest, at the Worshipful Company of Bowyers, where his older brother became Beadle on leaving the Met Police in the late Nineties, where he had been in charge of Op Hatton investigating PIE.
Cruse Bereavement Care:
Mark Francois certainly seems to associate with elite paedos and their protectors.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols: theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/n…
cruse.org.uk/about-cruse/me…
Cardinal Nichols was a distasteful character. He presided over the funeral of Savile's Atheneum buddy, Cardinal Hume. I have written at length on Hume and the Downside Abbey coverup, for example in this thread about Francois' fellow ERG nutcase Rees-Mogg:
Hours before he was installed as archbishop of Westminster in 2009, Nichols was accused of spouting 'the verbiage of unreason' after claiming that it had taken courage for Irish priests and nuns who had abused children to 'face the facts from their past'. theguardian.com/world/2014/feb…
The idea that 'Vin' is an outsider is wildly off-mark. He is a creature of Cardinal Hume, the former Archbishop of Westminster (1976-99), who early spotted the priest’s talents. 
Vin's predecessor in Westminster was Savile buddy Cormac Murphy-O'Connor. americamagazine.org/issue/699/100/…
Murphy-O'Connor and Nichols have a long history together with Archpaedophile Jimmy Savile.
Take the Jumbulance charity for example. In 1981, an Alligator Jumbulance featured on 'Jim'll Fix It'.
The Met's Op Hatton monitored the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE). Until 1997, Brian François, brother of Albion on Steroids aka Mark François MP, was in charge of this operation.
When questioned about his work, 'GB' said his requests for more resources were rejected.
Missed opportunities due to a lack of resources!
It took a year from submitting a 728 before he was given authority to interview a suspect!
Everything had to go through DS Brian Francois!
So what was DS Brian Francois, brother of Rees-Mogg friend Mark Gino Francois MP playing at?
One of the team who worked with Brian François, little Mark Gino's big brother, was Graham Passingham, now deceased, who, according to witness 'GB', was very friendly with Tom Watson.
Has Tom Watson been questioned by @InquiryCSA about this?
Graham Passingham, now deceased, was a colleague of Brian Francois and a friend of Tom Watson.
He also features in the @InquiryCSA document covering Peter Righton and Charles Napier, as well as in @CathyCathyFox's research. cathyfox.wordpress.com/2017/03/22/mic…
Worshipful Bro Brian Francois, elder brother to the ERG's Patriotic Beetroot, was Liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Wheelwrights. His lodge's chosen charity is the Haberdashers' Aske's Federation School ...
Haberdashers' Aske's School has a catchment area covering Deptford, Lewisham and New Cross. This was the school where the late Ronald Harrison was 'vice' headmaster - a man on EGH surveillance lists, beaten to death by 'rent boys' in 1992 ...
Interestingly, a comment by someone 'in the know' left on @davidhencke's blog provides evidence of yet another case of intimidation of police surrounding the surveillance of VIP abusers.
In this case it concerns none other than Ronald Harrison ...
davidhencke.com/2017/11/12/exc…
'Certainly my life turned to shit afterwards':
Police intimidation runs like a red thread through @InquiryCSA. Witness 'GB' recounts a chilling and unexpected encounter with an unknown 'Supt RCS' in a local pub.
Now I wonder whether DS Brian Francois' friends were involved?
But back to Francois and Haberdashers': The case of the Ronald Harrison, first of Haberdashers' then of Wallington, featured on Crimewatch. The murder was played down by those involved as 'gay-bashing', but in context it is far more sinister ...
While watching the Harrison CrimeWatch video, I was struck by the similarities with the incident in Proctor's shirt shop at around the same time when two youths accosted the 'Headmaster' Spanker. That, too, was played down as gay-bashing.
…buse-wordpress-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/spotlighto…
I was surprised it didn't occur to either the Police or GALOP that Harrison and Proctor could have been retribution for offences against minors ... until I saw some of the names associated with GALOP:
Proctor friend Parris on Mgmt Ctte
Jeremy Clarke/Albany Trust
Anthony Grey
Similarly, it is equally surprising that neither Nick Ross nor Fiona Bruce (Jill Dando replacement) mentioned that they were alumni of Wallington Grammar and Haberdashers' respectively, albeit at different times, when presenting the Ron Harrison murder on Crimewatch.
Harrison was a religious man and had read the lesson at St. Paul's church on the Sunday before his murder. Rector at the time was Father Diamond, ostensibly a well-liked cleric who breathed life into a run-down Deptford.
But there was a sinister side ...
Before we take a closer look at Fr. Diamond's activities, here's another example of how the same names keep cropping up time and time again: Rev. David Diamond was director at Walsingham College at the same time as 'Lord' Deben, John Selwyn Gummer.
The crypt below St. Paul's was a sleazy venue for psychedelic parties run by an ex-copper Andy Moore where stoned hippies rubbed shoulders and more with men of the cloth, got stoned and knew they would not be having their collars felt by the Bill. hippiecounterculture.wordpress.com/2007/12/03/enc…
Two events during Fr. Diamond's tenure at St. Paul's rocked his parish. One was the New Cross fire mention by Diamond in the video below and a subject to which I will return later.
The other was the murder of Ron Harrison.

Diamond must have been close to both Ron Harrison, an active lay member of his congregation, and the two convicted of his murder, and he had an intimate knowledge of the scene as he often sat in on police interviews. Diamond and Harrison also shared a love of the bottle.
Diamond's links to the 'dark side' are exemplified by his close ties to the gangster Charlie Richardson, a criminal rival to the Krays, who even donated the Ford Escort Diamond drove around in and took young people to the coast in.
theguardian.com/world/2012/sep…
For an alcoholic and a man with mafia-like connections, Father Diamond had astonishing connections to Royalty, apparently only needing to snap his fingers to get them lining up to attend his many Deptford events.
Nowhere were Diamond's links to the High and Mighty more apparent than after his death. When permission was refused to bury him in the churchyard, Sir Anthony Lloyd used his influence in high places to achieve the impossible.

Prior to his arrival in Deptford, Diamond was warden of St John's Youth Centre Tuebrook, Liverpool.
Jimmy Savile's favourite princess, Alexandra, made a detour to visit her rough diamond as early as 1969.
