Kenneth Grant’s good part in the Highgate Cemetery scandal

Back in the 1970s, all sorts of graveyards were violated in London – kids probably on glue or worse thought it was somehow cool to desecrate graves and throw bones and skulls up to the top.

The unpopular press at the time in salacious fashion decided to attribute weird kids’ attitude to tombs as somehow “satanic” – the unpopular press banged on about this sort of stuff all the time.

The Metropolitan Police arrested an individual – not a ring leader, but a slightly psychotic kid with schizophrenic tendencies who had done quite a lot of this stuff.

Kenneth Grant was called as an expert witness by the cops, as I recall things.

Kenneth Grant was absolutely in no way no satanist, although he was a very skilled magician imbued with compassion because of Anandamayi Ma. He  was considered by the Met as an expert on these matters. The deranged boy was given medication, as far as I recall it.  The tabloid press gasped. And shut up. And it was good. I await more obituaries… ♥
