Allegedly, Lord Janner is suffering from dementia, so police can’t interview him about alleged child abuse that he was involved in.
According to the Mail, “Police ‘told to limit abuse probe into MP’: Derbyshire Chief Constable claims he was forbidden to arrest Labour man or search his home when he worked as a detective“.
Might we assume that he is also too feeble to turn up to the House of Lords to collect his attendance allowance, or to vote on issues which affect us all?
Apparently not because Lord Janner voted a number of times in 2013 – less than a year ago. His full HoL voting record can be seen here.
Voting Record — Lord Janner of Braunstone (12963)
Note: our records only go back to 1997 for the Commons and 2001 for the Lords (more details).
If this man is fit enough to attend the HoL, then he should be fit enough to be interrogated by the police and made to answer for any child abuse that he might have committed.
Apparently, Judge Paul Watson QC found Raja Hussain guilty, but suspended his jail sentence due to “good character”. Perhaps the judge would like to explain how a person who pesters teenagers on trains for sex is of “good character”.
What are we to make of the fact that it is Ken Clarke who recommended Watson’s appointment as circuit judge?
Interesting, yes? Let’s not forget that Pie & Mash Films documentary maker Bill Malone has interviewed those who allege they have been abused by Ken Clarke or that Ken Clarke was present when abuse was taking place.
Let’s see how long this video remains available to the general public. Perhaps we should all download it before it disappears.
During today’s hearing of the HoC Home Affairs Committee into the Rotherham child sexual exploitation ‘scandal’, everyone on the committee seemed struck by the refusal of Shaun Wright and ex Chief Constable Meredydd John Hughes to recall details and to admit culpability, despite overwhelming evidence that contradicted the positions they were taking.
Despite the positions of authority the various witnesses held in the Council and the Police, they did not discipline anyone. Nobody was sacked or suspended or even named as being possibly culpable. Why? Are they covering for each other, or for a wider ring of people?
Given that during the session, reference was made to the strong links within the South Yorkshire police force to:
- the Freemasons,
- child-trafficking and abuse,
- organised crime,
it seems possible that Wright and Hughes might be more frightened of their organised crime links than they are of what the government might do to them if they are found guilty of perjury.
In other words, who might Wright and Hughes be protecting?
Perhaps Mr Vaz will look into that aspect?
Interestingly, Joyce Thacker says she was a “partner of Barnardos”.
Try as I might, I can’t seem to find any history pertaining to the Lord Mayor of London, Fiona Woolf, prior to 1973. Wikipedia tells us that she was born in Scotland, but not who her parents were.
How is it that the most powerful woman on these isles has no history that we are allowed to see? What is being hidden, and why? How did she come to rule over the Corporation of the City of London, subject to no statutes that our Parliament passes?
Isn’t it interesting that she was invited to attend the International Services Forum, along with Leon Brittan, in March / April 2014?
Should we not know more about this woman, who is to preside over an inquiry into the biggest scandal of government in our lifetimes – endemic child abuse and murder?
38 Degrees has a petition to block Fiona Woolf’s appointment as Chair of the CSA inquiry. Shouldn’t our MPs be eager to subject her to more scrutiny?
