Hague…So many questions, zero accountability
Journalist Nick Davies wrote in 1997: On the fringe of the tribunal hearing, there are disturbing suggestions of a violent cover-up. The London Evening Standard has run a series of stories about two brothers, Adrian Johns and Lea Homburg, who were abused by a convicted paedophile named John Allen. Allen ran a complex of homes in North Wales and London and is said to have been supplying boys to wealthy outsiders. The Standard reported that the two brothers were trying to blackmail him when, in April 1992, Adrian was burned to death in a house fire in Brighton. Lea later died in mysterious circumstances.
Nick Davies is the man who had to bear Mayor Doris Jobsworth calling his early Hackgate articles “a load of left-wing poppycock”. Being proved 100% wrong didn’t stop both the Mayor and Jeremy Rhyminge-Slang kissing the old Digger bastard all over his anatomy at the Olympic Games. Even now Murdoch has, in the last week, been clearly shown to have lied to the SC&M Committee, and vowed revenge on the Met Police, they still refuse to retract any of the abuse aimed at those who merely wish this indecent Antipodean lowlife to bugger off for good. (Most US journalists, I should add, are of the same mind).
Anyway – Nick Davies, Guardian star journalist – no fantasist he. Nick is just one of the hundreds of thousands of Brits who know that our child care-home system is failing, and that ‘renting out’ kids thus ensconced – while not a routine practice – has certainly been going on in most large centres from Plymouth to Edinburgh for at least forty years.
Now today the Daily Telegraph – at the opposite end of the spectrum from the Guardianistas – gives space to a victim of paedophilia accusing William Hague of deliberately suppressing the case (and others) to which Nick referred way back when. In this particular instance, we are back once again with the fat gentlemen sporting nice watches and shiny shoes. And with the odd actions of Mr Vague, who is not being called upon to explain any of his oddly censorious behaviour during the Major years.
So Boris – thou who art variously trumpeted and bankrolled by the Maily Sarkograph – what saith thou to this? Nothing? I thought so. Nothing either, one assumes, about the Daily Record’s piece last week which established something ever so slightly fishy:
‘A RESPECTED government adviser on child protection has been charged with fraud over allegations that she falsely claimed to have a medical qualification. Susan Stewart, 43, worked with some of the most vulnerable children in Scotland for more than a decade – advising courts and local councils on whether they should be taken into care. The mum of two, who referred to herself as Dr Susan Stewart and was called on as an expert by a Scottish Government committee, was manager of a child and family assessment centre for leading Scots children’s charity Aberlour Child Care Trust. Prosecutors are now considering a police report.’
What about you, Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt: clearly the vetting system is a bit, shall we say, lightweight? Non-existent? You tell me. All I can tell you is that I hounded a false psychiatrist accuser in the pay of Staffordshire Social Services six years ago. He ran away, but he still practices, still takes the money, still tells gullible Family Court judges that kids have invented memory syndrome….but is in fact himself affiliated with an Anglo-American paedophile apologist organisation. Which, spookily, I can’t write about thanks to a gagging order.
Britain is rapidly turning into a country where those with an obsessive lust for political power are prepared to deny anything and support anyone in order to achieve that power, and then retain it. To those Sloggers wondering if I’m becoming totally obsessed with pieces for the Paedofile, I would answer that I write about this for the same reason I write about football, phone hacking, global looting, Crash 2 and umpteen other subjects: they are all symptoms not of an economic crisis, but a much broader cultural crisis.
Money-lust destroys political trust and hides paedophile lust. The connection is obvious. We are only barely civilised any more. The return to decency is a chronic need, and it is apolitical in nature. Tribalism only allows the barbarians to get away with it.
