Theresa May, as Home Secretary, admitted the Home Office could have covered up paedophile allegations during the Thatcher government of the 1980s. She was then forced to launch another new inquiry into the claims. Those involved in that inquiry believe it is being run in an intentionally shambolic fashion
An official inquiry, lead by the head of the NSPCC Peter Wanless aided by Richard Whittam QC, had been unable to “prove or disprove” claims that historic child sex abuse allegations had been swept under the carpet.
“I CANNOT STAND HERE AND SAY THAT DURING THE EIGHTIES THE HOME OFFICE WAS NOT INVOLVED IN A COVER-UP. THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A COVER-UP,”
On July 8th 2014, then Home Secretary Theresa May appointed Baroness Butler-Sloss to lead up the inquiry. She resigned 6 days in to her role.
On September 5th 2014, May appointed Fiona Woolfe. She resigned just 56 days later.
On the 4th of February, May appointed Justice Lowe Goddard to the role of leading the Inquiry. She resigned on the 4th of August.
To lose one head of such an inquiry might be misfortune. To lose two might be careless. To lose three is just incompetence. Alexis Jay was appointed in August 2016. Her report had one line of interest, which stated that politicians like Theresa May:
“wanted to keep a lid on it”
But Ian McFadyen says the Conservatives unelected Prime Minister’s shambolic Inquiry into systemic Child Abuse in Parliament & other places was nothing but a PR exercise. For proof he cites the turnover in staff.
“People ask me: is this the establishment trying to undermine the credibility or ability of this Inquiry?’ Two years ago I would have said that they were conspiracy theorists, now I’m beginning to doubt.
At what stage is this an independent Inquiry? As far as I can understand of the Inquiry Secretariat, one of them was an employee from Theresa May’s Office.”
So, was this a cover up? Well, two years later, in May 2016, the Tory David Cameron appointed as head of a task force on Internet pedophilia was put on trial, facing accusations of possessing indecent images of young children. The trial of Patrick Rock began on 31 May 2016 at Southwark Crown Court.
Rock was a close friend and confidante of former Tory Prime Minister Dodgy David Cameron for over 20 years.
