SEX ABUSE IS GUILTY SECRET

Labour MP Tom Watson raised the issue of a paedophile ring in Parliament

Sunday October 28,2012

By Sonia Poulton


Have your say(5)


IN THE weeks that have ?followed Jimmy Savile ?being revealed as a paedophile his carefully crafted charitable reputation has been obliterated. The ?national treasure decorated by the Queen and given keys to ?hospitals has been laid bare and described by one investigating ?officer as ?the most prolific serial sex abuser in history?.


 
Increasingly, though, rather than being the solitary pervert operating with impunity, Savile may be the tip of a large iceberg.

As more victims reveal abuse at the hands of Savile, or his ?extensive circle of friends, it ?appears the silence that ?surrounded him may say less about his celebrity status and more about whom he may have implicated had his crimes been exposed. Certainly we know that Savile was subject to at least five police probes over five decades. All were quashed. Why? We have yet to be told.

For many it reeks of an establishment cover-up, though for years detractors referred to it as ?conspiracy theory?.

Savile?s BBC colleague David Icke, who went from respected broadcaster to laughing stock, was at the forefront of such claims in the Nineties when he named Savile and others as paedophiles.

Icke claimed Savile supplied children from Jersey?s infamous Haut de la Garenne care home to a senior British MP. Savile denied knowing the home, the scene of a police investigation in 2008 that uncovered widespread child abuse. He lied. There is pictorial evidence of him there.
 
Savile may be the tip of a large iceberg

Last week, during Prime Minister?s Questions, Labour MP Tom Watson raised the issue of a paedophile ring in Parliament and alluded to a former PM. David Cameron, all perplexed, said he would look into it. Minutes after PMQs, Tory MP Rob Wilson was on Sky News appearing to laugh off Watson?s claims.

This cannot go on. It was these sorts of hasty dismissals that helped Savile get away with it. People laughed it off and claimed ?nutters? were saying it.

Well I can tell Mr Cameron that this claim is not sensational, anything but. In fact Tom Watson has barely scratched the surface.

I have compiled a list of 132 ?utterly shameless establishment child abusers. These include MPs, lords and local councillors. A ?similar list for members of Her Majesty?s Constabulary exists.

I don?t believe these lists are complete. This is not conjecture or media gossip but people, ?primarily men, who have been prosecuted for child sex offences throughout the UK.

Many of these abusers still ?represent constituents and are ?serving the public?. At the very least we should know who they are, where they are and if their public decisions are influenced by the greater good or their own twisted perversions.

As a journalist, and in light of the Savile revelations, people have contacted me desperate to share their abuse stories.

Some accuse powerful members of the establishment. Several household-name MPs are said to have committed acts of degradation against children as young as six.

Yes, some of these callers may be jumping on the bandwagon but not many are, as independent ?corroboration of their stories has already confirmed.

So let?s not be under any ? illusion that this is only about Savile. I fear it is far from it.

The Government must immediately announce an independent inquiry. It must be public and transparent and it must leave no stone unturned. The credibility of Parliament is at an all-time low and serious questions must be answered.Why did Ken Clarke, as justice minister, halve sentences of ?paedophiles last year in a controversial announcement?

Why did the Cabinet Office ?issue threatening letters last week to internet bloggers ? warning that they must not repeat allegations of a child actor ?claiming to have been touched by a member of the Coalition?


Then there is the question that overshadows the whole Savile ?inquiry: why was he allowed to ?become so close to royalty and government? Surely it is the job of the security services to investigate the lifestyle of those who have access to our figureheads?

Yes, this is a dark time in our nation?s history but we must face it head on and keep going until we know the full, unexpurgated truth, no matter how unedifying future revelations may be.

Judging by some of the testi?monies I have heard it is likely to be very shocking indeed. There is no alternative. The ?victims need the truth to be told, no matter how powerful or con?nected their ?abusers may prove to be.

for daring to go where The Times fears to tread. We are at least 10-20% of the population who thank you (those of us who have experienced sexual abuse).

Those of you who say, "why didn't the victims come forward" and "they are only jumping on the bandwagon"; this is not about "them". This is about all of us. This is about what we are all willing to permit, or not permit, in our society.
 
Have you ever bothered to do the maths? Someone you know has been abused. That's guaranteed. I hope, for your sake, that it's not your son or daughter.

FOR FAR TOO MANY AT THE TOP

This investigation has to go further than SoVile...PM's/MPs/Police/Judiciary...the lot of them have to be exposed otherwise it will be hidden for another 50 years.
 We have a right to know what vile creatures govern us, after all we pay their wages. I pray that the Police leave no stone unturned, whoever crawls out from under....they must not be intimidated.

INDEPENDENT ENQUIRY

Thank you Sonia Poulton for a well written and brave article and thank you Daily Express for publishing it.
 
All too often it seems our Establishment does a quick cover up and far too often our Media step in line aiding the miss truths, so it is very refreshing to see you as a journalist pushing the boundaries.
 
Only yesterday I heard that - ' The director of Public Health England referred to the Lyme community as a 'huge social movement' - Yet another area where Establishment doesn't pay attention to emerging Scientific research and disparages the patients who fight for their right to adequate treatment on the NHS.
 
This last year or so has seen many scandals come to light and one day this huge medical scandal over Lyme Disease and it's impact on so many other health problems will be heard.
