Westminster Confidential

Politicians like journalists can be  creatures of the moment. Flitting from issue to issue – today will be the decision on implementing Leveson  on press regulation – they sometimes forget the bigger picture in the adrenalin rush of a crisis or a story.

Eleven years ago David Cameron, then a backbencher sat alongside Tom Watson, Labour MP, as a member of the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee. Together the two MPs signed up to a report on historical child abuse. One of the key recommendations of the report ( for those who want to read it all, the link is http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm200102/cmselect/cmhaff/836/83602.htm ) was that when the police ” trawl” for abuse victims and witnesses  those who are interviewed should get support from day one.

The recommendation states: “complainants should be offered appropriate victim support services, such as
counselling, from an early stage of their involvement in the investigation.”

    I’m afraid rich powerful old men marrying women a third of their age is a completely unremarkable occurrence. World wide, and across the centuries.

    I believe Mrs Merton had something to say about it :-)

      Why aren’t labour jumping up and down shouting why are you protecting the pedo’s, that would happen if there was true opposition but sadly as Mr C says we are all in it together and that is the only bit of truth that we will get from the ****.
