Melanie Shaw came forward in 2011, making allegations about abuse inflicted on her and others at Beechwood Community Home, Nottingham. She claims that the young boys were put on a bus and taken to London. She alleges that one man, now deceased, would put a Freddie Kruger mask on and rape the boys in the basement of Beechwood. She claims to have been raped by him also. She also claims that children were killed at Beechwood.

Her allegations resulted in Operation Daybreak being set up by Nottinghamshire Police. This operation has seen 130 people give evidence and 2 people have been charged.

For Melanie Shaw the story became very dark after her whistleblowing. She has been arrested now five times.

In the modern economy, most money takes the form of bank deposits. But how those bank deposits are created is often misunderstood: the principal way is through commercial banks making loans. Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.
