It’s fair to say that thanks to the great work done by Murun Buchstansangur on Twitter, those of us who are able to access sources other than the MSM have been aware of this for weeks now but that does not mean that we should not appreciate the work of professional journalists. The relationship between the alternative media and the MSM should be symbiotic. Professional journalist are not just credible sources of news they also can lend credibility to the assertions of the alternative media.
This story in today’s Sunday People should pose some ineresting questions for those seeking justice for the systemic sexual abuse of children, especially those supposedly in the care of the state.
As I’ve already clearly stated here, Leon Brittan’s name appears on a list, which purports to be a list of guests that visited Elm Guest House where the sexual abuse of children took place. That list, along with other documents, were seized under warrant by the Operation Fernbridge paedophile investigation team.
I’m not suggesting, nor have I ever suggested, that every person on that list abused children but it would be incurious not to ask why the former Home Secretary Leon Brittan did not do more when presented with a file listing sexual abusers of children presented by Geoffrey Dickens MP back in 1984.
And where is that file now Mr Brittan ?
Justice does not just need to be done, it needs to be seen to be done.
A senior Tory MP handed an explosive dossier alleging VIP child abuse to the Government almost 30 years ago, the Sunday People can reveal.
The 50 pages contained information about suspected paedophile rings, police misconduct and abuse of boys in a care home.
There are suggestions the dossier contained links to the notorious Elm guest house in south-west London which is currently the focus of the Met Police’s investigation Operation Fernbridge.
But the file has disappeared.
It was presented to the Home Office by Geoffrey Dickens MP in 1984.
Later he had a half-hour meeting with the then-Home Secretary Leon Brittan which Mr Dickens described as encouraging.
The MP for Littleborough and Saddleworth said he had been assured his allegations of a UK-wide paedophile ring would be fully investigated.
But there is no evidence Mr Dickens’ findings were ever followed up and the Home Office admits it has no idea where the file is now.
Our revelations support claims first made in the Commons last October by campaigning MP Tom Watson that evidence of a VIP paedophile ring with links to the heart of government was not followed up in the early 1980s.
