It is almost impossible to imagine anything more shocking than the revelations concerning Jimmy Saville, ex-Liberal MP Cyril Smith and others which have emerged in recent times. These most heinous of crimes become all the more disgusting for the length of time that they were perpetrated by those in positions of power and influence. It is, however, most unbelievable that they got away with it for so long without the knowledge and assistance of others in powerful and influential positions: others who are still alive and with us. Of course, some did know and tried to blow the lid on what was going on.
A dossier on paedophiles allegedly associated with the British government was assembled by the Conservative MP, Geoffrey Dickens, who handed it to the then Home Secretary, Leon Brittan, in 1984. The whereabouts of the dossier is unknown, along with other files on organised child abuse that had been held by the Home Office. Dickens claimed the information within was explosive and implicated a number of very high profile figures.
Dickens had already outed one powerful paedophile when he named the diplomat and MI6 operative Sir Peter Hayman in parliament. In October 1978, Hayman left a package of paedophilia-related materials on a London bus. Hayman was a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange but even after a police investigation uncovered more incriminating evidence in an apartment used by the married father of two, he was released without charge and Dickens was roundly criticised by his parliamentary colleagues. Again in the early 80s a Tory MP was reportedly stopped at Dover docks carrying a consignment of child pornography. The MP who still remains unnamed was not arrested or charged and the evidence has now been lost or destroyed.
Later in 1985 Dickens was to say "The noose around my neck grew tighter after I named a former high-flying British diplomat on the Floor of the House. Honourable Members will understand that where big money is involved and as important names came into my possession so the threats began. First, I received threatening telephone calls followed by two burglaries at my London home." More recently his son added that about the time when the dossier was given to the Home Secretary, the MP's London flat and constituency home were both broken into but nothing was taken, presumably in a search for documents.
Last year it was also reported that a former Conservative cabinet minister appeared in footage and photographs from a London party where children were abused three decades ago. The minister has apparently denied any wrongdoing. The film and images were seized at the home of a known paedophile in London during a recent police raid. Some of the parties were organised by paedophile Sidney Cooke, who is currently jailed for the rape and manslaughter of young boys. Cooke was part of a notorious ring of paedophiles who picked up youngsters in London and from care homes across the UK, often taking them to Amsterdam to be abused. According to Exaro SIX Tory MPs - five of whom are still alive - frequently attended sex parties in Amsterdam in order to have sex with young boys. One of the former victims has claimed the ex-minister was one of those who raped him.
We also know that much of the abuse took place in this country at the notorious Elm Guest House. A list has been circulating for some time online of a shocking number of high profile figures who allegedly attended sex parties at the guest house. These include celebrities, an MI5 agent, a Sinn Fien member, a British neo-nazi leader and a number of Tory 'Monday Club' members. If true, there are some surprising bedfellows on that list. Most shocking of all is the name of the man whom the Dickens dossier was handed to and then subsequently 'lost'.
Whilst all these accusations made of course be false, there appears to be an appalling lack of urgency in the authorities investigations of those still living. One also has to ask why it has been so difficult to find a person to head the public inquiry who doesn't have connections to those named. When finally pressured to step down, Fiona Wolff said that only "a hermit" lacking her establishment links would satisfy the public. Perhaps just someone who is NOT a good friend of the man who lost one of the most crucial pieces of evidence in the case would be a good enough start. The lost dossier itself could be something of a red herring. Even without it, there are enough people out there who can remember what happened and have questions to answer.
For many of us our confidence in the establishment and political elite could not be lower. It would seem clear that the role of 'our' security services is primarily to keep us in our place and them safe in power. It is doubtful the full truth will ever be know whilst those in power manage the investigation. With every day that passes the need to overthrow the whole rotten system becomes more and more obvious. 'Our' government, civil service and secret services cannot be trusted. It is time we the people govern ourselves in our own interests because no one else will. Equally, the child abuse gangs of mostly British-Pakistani men preying on young white girls and subsequent cover-ups in Rotherham, Rochdale and elsewhere has highlighted the failures of institutional political correctness and the misguided application of State multicultural policy. Victims must be protected and abusers must be punished, regardless of race or social class.
