Vile rants of Moors murderer Ian Brady
as tribunal rules he IS insane
how child killer Ian Brady
might look today
MOORS murderer Ian Brady ridiculed the
hunt for missing Madeleine McCann in
hate-filled letters penned from his
high-security psychiatric hospital.
The child killer, 75, branded support
for missing Madeleine as “hypocritical
He also claimed James Bulger’s killers
Jon Venables and Robert Thompson should
never have been locked up for their
In the letters to a pen pal, Brady also:
SUPPORTED the 7/7 attacks on London and
praised suicide bombers for having
BEGGED for more terror attacks on the
UK, including a nuclear assault to wipe
out central London, and;
BRAGGED he had stopped Hollywood
heavyweights from cashing in on his case
— but moaned HE had not made any money
from his notoriety.
The sickening rants are revealed just
days after he lost his bid to be moved
from high-security Ashworth Hospital on
Merseyside to a Scottish prison.

A tribunal ruled on Friday that he is
still mentally ill, scuppering his plan
to starve himself to death.
He is currently force-fed once a day
through a nasal tube.
Brady tortured and murdered five
children in the 1960s with his
girlfriend Myra Hindley.
Since the tribunal’s ruling, it has
emerged in letters that he may have
killed four more people — three men and
Last night Brady’s mental health
advocate, Jackie Powell, who visited him
after the ruling, said he is now
determined to end his life in whatever
way he can.
Jackie, 50, has known Brady for 14 years
and in an exclusive interview with The
Sun on Sunday she said: “Ian has told me
that his only desire now is to exit this
world in the quickest way possible.
“They have got him on what amounts to a
suicide watch. He is under surveillance
24 hours a day.

Hindley murdered five
“I have no sympathy for Ian over the
crimes he committed but I am concerned
for him as a client.
“There is a real danger that he could
try to hang himself or commit suicide in
some other way.”
Brady’s prison letters clearly
demonstrate his twisted outlook on life.

family in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in May

search for Maddie and wrote: “The girl

Brady also used his letters to attack campaigners who had tried
to keep the killers of James Bulger
Thompson and Venables were ten when they murdered the toddler
near Liverpool in 1993. They were freed
on licence with new identities in 2001.
Hinting that the pair should not have gone to jail in the first
place, Brady wrote: “The Bulger fiasco?
Indicates the prehistoric mentality of
the UK rabble re two ten-year-olds being
freed after eight years.
“In Europe they would not have been locked up at all. The UK is
the ar*ehole of Europe.”
In another astonishing outburst, he wrote: “The lynch mob after
the Bulger Two. Conditioned,
sanctimonious morons, acting from guilt
complex from what they themselves
committed when they were ten years old.
There are more killers and thieves
running society than you’ll find in all

As Brady casually discussed terrorist
atrocities with his pen pal, he revealed
he was praying the UK suffered an attack
far worse than 9/11.
In one letter, written before suicide
bombers struck in London, he wrote:
“This filthy little country hasn’t even
been attacked yet — but I sincerely hope
it now is.
“The bigger the attack the better, with
Whitehall the main target.
“A plague is about the only way to clean
out the parasitic collection of
political and bureaucratic filth. Or a
“I’m glad I’ve lived to see an enemy
prepared to die for something other than
their bank balance and pensions.”
In another, he wrote: “I’m waiting for
the retaliation strikes against the West
and hope England is included.
“There are whole armies of suicide
bombers eager to strike at the West
after centuries of exploitation.
“They’re even being trained to die at
schools. Admirable commitment.
“I wish matters would speed up. A strike
on the West is overdue.
“The UK has always been a backward
s***hole of over-taxed serfs.”

He boasts about the number of books and
films based on the case — but moans
about not making any money himself from
it. And he even claims a Hollywood
director was willing to PAY him to make
a movie based on his life.
He wrote: “There have been more than 30
books on my case; five plays (one
German); a London musical; a comic; some
playing cards (US/Canada).
“So that leaves very little to exploit.

played Ronnie Kray in a film.

“Ian has always indulged in playing mind

After last week’s tribunal — which cost
taxpayers £250,000 — Brady told Jackie:
“The evidence given by Ashworth was a
rag-bag of prison rumour and irrelevant
ancient history. I was expecting the
result to be negative.

“It was the result of deliberate and
calculated collusion by the self-serving
and bloated bureaucracy that runs this
warehouse for feeble-minded cretins.”
But Brady also revealed he may NOT
appeal the decision, with the process
taking its toll on his health.
Jackie said: “Ian looks sallow and waxy.
At times he looks like a walking corpse.
“His health has deteriorated in the last
year. He has multiple conditions
including failing eyesight and
spondylitis, which causes chronic back

that fighting the decision would be a
