With over 20 allegations of child sexual abuse, including anal rape and the sexual abuse of children as young as 7 years old this man Lord Greville Janner because of his sudden dementia will never face justice.
His alleged victims will never have the opportunity of facing their sexual abuser in a court of law.
As a member of the House of Lords he is not elected, you didn’t elect him and you will never be able to vote him out. Never!
But Lord Greville Janner is still eligible to make the law. He is still able to vote on legislation concerning child abuse.
Lord Janner is too ill to face the law but well enough to make the law.
And anyone that tells you that this disgraceful and repugnant state of affairs is OK is blowing smoke up your arse.
This is the country we live in.
For God’s sake, make it better!
“I have seen him in Parliament and he looked in quite good health to me. I’m not surprised to learn that he’s been attending the Lords quite regularly until recently.” – Simon Danczuk
The Friday Night Song
For Baron Boateng
Janet Boateng’s name never comes up in articles about the paedophile ring that operated in Lambeth Council-run children’s homes between 1974 and 1994.
But maybe it should, because she was chair of Lambeth Council’s social services committee, who had overall responsibility for the running of children’s homes, and she personally unveiled the ‘new child care strategy’ at a time when Lambeth children’s homes were infested with paedophiles.
Janet Boateng is married to former Labour MP and now peer, Paul Boateng.

Social Work Today, 11th November 1985
Leading Jewish peer Lord Janner spoke today about his sorrow at the death of Michael Jackson, whom he regarded as “delightful company” and a good friend.
Lord Janner was introduced to the singer by psychic Uri Geller.
“He came to Parliament in 2002 and I showed him round,” Lord Janner recalled. “He had come to the UK to help fund-raise for Exeter Football Club, which Uri chaired.
“I showed him all around the Lords; it was a Friday and the staff were thrilled. When we got to the place where the Queen sits when she opens Parliament, he looked at the chair and then turned to his assistant. He said: ‘I want one exactly like that for my home.'”
Lord Janner said he had not been familiar with Jackson’s music when they first met but had had the opportunity to see him in California at Universal Studios. “We had dinner together and then I watched him dance. He was an incredible dancer. It was absolutely astonishing.”
The peer said he would miss the entertainer, whose death was announced today.
Lord Janner was attending the House of Lords and claiming expenses every other day right up until Dec 2013 when police raided his home.
Then he got dementia.
When the police sent a criminal file containing evidence of over 20 allegations of child sexual abuse to the CPS they decided not to prosecute, not because there was not enough evidence but because he was too ill and it was therefore “not in the public interest”.
And yet, Lord Janner can still attend Parliament and vote on legislation if he wishes too.
Lord Janner is too ill to be accountable to the law of the land but he is well enough to make the law of the land.
Labour peer Lord Janner of Braunstone, QC is an appalling reminder of the establishments apathy toward victims of child abuse.
How can this man still be a Labour Party member?
How can this man remain a member of the House of Lords?
How can this man, who currently has over 20 outstanding allegations of child sexual abuse against boys as young as 7 years old, remain a Queens Council, a status conferred by the Crown?
The answer is simple. Greville Janner is an establishment figure who has been, and still is, protected by the establishment.
Yesterday, in The Times, we discovered that 25 years ago Mick Creedon, chief constable of Derbyshire, believed there was “credible evidence” against Greville Janner but that he was ordered to limit his inquiries.
One young boy who alleges that Greville Janner, then in his 40s, sexually abused him, has numourous ‘affectionate’ letters from him, many signed off “Love from”.
[Thank you] “for your thoughtful help to me on Sunday – you are an excellent right-hand man!”
“Your letter was very welcome,I expect that mine to you came as a surprise! Anyway thanks for writing. I enjoyed hearing from you – and having you with me on Tuesday. Fond good wishes to you.”
“I was very pleased to see you on Saturday and to have the chance to discuss so much with you.”
“Write to me when you have time. And don’t forget to ask whether you can help me at my surgery. With fond greetings.”
“Your letter arrived this morning – and I was pleased to hear from you. I am very glad that you found our chat useful – so did I – and I shall not forget my promises to you.”
“I was happy to be with you, and hope that we are achieving some mutual understanding. Straight talk – and total frankness – is essential to our friendship.”
“It seems strange not to have you flipping around like a friendly flea! In fact – I miss you.”
Greville Janner was then named in court as a child abuser in the trial of Frank Beck as The Times reported in 1991;
A FORMER boy in care at a children’s home alleged at Leicester crown court yesterday that he had been sexually abused by Greville Janner, Labour MP for Leicester West, during a two-year relationship that began when he was aged 13.
(Alleged Victims Name withheld), now 30, claimed that he had been fondled when he slept with Mr Janner at the MP’s London home after meeting him at the House of Commons, and that later he had been buggered, once in a double bed at a hotel in Mr Janner’s constituency and twice during a lecture tour in Scotland. He also alleged that the MP had had simulated sex with him.
(Alleged Victims Name withheld) told the court that he had been given money, toys, clothing and tickets for concerts by the MP during their relationship, and said: ”I had become accustomed to the gifts I was receiving and the expensive restaurants, so I went along with it.”
But the establishment rallied around Greville Janner. In a disgusting display of ignorance, and an insult to over 20 alleged victims of child abuse, including the rape of young boys, Member of Parliament cheered Janner.
Some MPs went further. Keith Vaz MP, now chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, wanted a new law to protect those accused of child abuse. He said;
“My hon. and learned Friend [Greville Janner], too, is a brave man in what he has done, said and endured over the past weeks and months. Every one of us should be grateful to him, because…what has happened to my hon. and learned Friend could happen to any one of us, so we should all be aware of it.”
“During the course of that terrible ordeal, I suggested to the Lord Chancellor that there should be a change in the law to provide for the protection of the innocent. The Lord Chancellor said that he would consider the idea. The Solicitor-General is here today, and I make him an offer. I came 18th in the ballot for private Members’ Bills. I know that that is not very high —and there are other subjects that I wish to raise. Nevertheless, I would happily introduce a Bill to cover the point if the right hon. and learned Gentleman would promise it a safe passage through the House.
We should not wait for another Criminal Justice Bill. There is parliamentary time, and we should get on with the job. I foresee that many unscrupulous people in this country would be prepared to do exactly the same thing again. If it is possible to do so, I will happily give the Solicitor-General my place.”
More recently, these allegations have resurfaced. In December last year the police finally searched Lord Janner’s home. Later a criminal file was passed to the CPS.
But once again Janner has been let off the hook and it is only natural that the general public will suspect yet another establishment cover-up for one of their own.
The CPS decided not to prosecute. Not because there is a paucity of evidence against Lord Janner, with over 20 alleged victims the case has more evidence than most but because he has ‘dementia’ and it is therefore ‘not in the public interest’.
Interestingly, Lord Janner was attending the House of Lords and claiming expenses for it up to 15 times a month right up until his home was searched by police. The onset of his ‘dementia’ seems to have been sudden and precipitated by the renewed allegations made against him for the sexual abuse and rape of young boys.
So, I ask again the 3 questions I put at the beginning of this piece.
To the Ed Milliband and Labour Party;
How can you continue to allow Greville Janner to remain a member of the Labour Party and take the Labour whip in the Lords ? How can a Party and it’s leaders aspire to govern this country in 6 months when it harbours an alleged child abuser ? If the Labour Party have any sense of decency they should suspend him without delay.
How can an alleged child rapist remain a legislator in Parliament’s second house? How can a man, unelected by the British public and too demented to to face justice, remain eligible to vote on UK legislation ? This state of affairs is not only an disgraceful insult to those that allege that Janner sexually abused them but also to every member of the British public. It is an insult to democracy, it is an insult to decency, and it is a disgrace. He must go.
To the Bar;
How can a man with outstanding allegations of child sexual abuse remain a Queens Council ? How can any victim of child abuse have confidence in the legal system when an alleged paedophile remains a Queens Council ? What message does that send out to those victims awaiting the trial of their abusers ? He should be disbarred forthwith.
Those are the questions. Now it’s time to get the answers!
“The witness had produced affectionate letters that were allegedly from the MP, some on House of Commons notepaper, and provided a detailed description of the inside of the MP’s Hampstead home”
An investigation into child abuse allegations against a prominent politician 25 years ago was blocked, one of the country’s most senior police officers has revealed.
Mick Creedon, chief constable of Derbyshire, told The Times that he was a detective sergeant in 1989 when he was ordered to limit his inquiries into Greville Janner, a leading Labour backbench MP. Mr Creedon said there was “credible evidence” against the MP, now Lord Janner of Braunstone, QC, that warranted further investigation, but he was given orders forbidding an arrest or a search of his home or offices.
“The decision was a clear one — he will be interviewed by appointment and there won’t be a search of his home address or his constituency office or his office in the House of Commons,” Mr Creedon said.
The order was “conveyed” by a superintendent but Mr Creedon believes it came from chief officers. He added: “It was a decision made by people more senior than me.”
But most will never be caught…
A nationwide investigation into online paedophilia has netted more than 25,000 people suspected of viewing child abuse images in Britain.
Operation Notarise has led to 660 arrests. However, the National Crime Agency says that it will never be able to pursue all of those caught up in the inquiry. “There will always be more people than we are able to investigate at any one time,” a spokesman said. “We cannot arrest our way out of this.”
The true scale of the inquiry, which began this year, can be disclosed as the agency faces pressure from politicians over its record on dealing with online child abuse.
Last week it emerged that a hospital doctor and a deputy head teacher were left free to commit sex offences for more than a year after the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command (CEOP), which is part of the agency, failed to share intelligence on them and more than 2,300 other suspects with police forces.
The police complaints watchdog is investigating the agency’s handling of the intelligence and Yvette Cooper, the shadow home secretary, is expected to criticise the agency’s record when she addresses the Labour party conference tomorrow.

According to the former member of parliament Giles Brandreth
The first, and only, official acknowledgement of my predecessor’s possible involvement in child abuse came my way in 1996, when William Hague, then Secretary of State for Wales, came up to me in the Commons to let me know that he had ordered an inquiry into allegations of child abuse in care homes in North Wales between 1974 and 1990 — and that Morrison’s name might feature in connection with the Bryn Estyn home in Wrexham, 12 miles from Chester.
‘Luckily’, though William Hague had the foresight to draw up the Terms of Reference for The Waterhouse inquiry so narrowly that no one from outside of the care homes faced justice.
But he knew! He knew and should now be asked how much he knew !
The Friday Night Song
Ian Paisley was told about William McGrath 8 years before he was convicted on at least 7 occasions.
“the producer told me that years before when he was an assistant editor in a cutting room in Wardour Street he used to get his holiday photos developed at a shop in Wardour Street and one day the shop was raided by the police because the owner was dealing in pornography or at least that was the presumed reason. During the raid, a distribution list was discovered which had Ted Heath’s name on it also Patrick Moore’s and it was for “kiddie porn” as it was termed in those days. I do not know how he got this information about the list but apparently “everyone in Wardour Street” knew about it.”
January 19th 1984A woman denied at the Central Criminal Court yesterday that she had appeared in pornographic photographs with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister. The woman, a mother of three children, whose former boy friend has pleaded not guilty to raping and assaulting her, said she had never met Mr Heath, or been photographed in indecent positions with men or children. The man has asserted that the charges against him have been fabricated by the woman and the police. “He says they wish to muzzle his evidence to bring to book certain persons, including the woman, who he says appeared in pornographic photographs together with his two children”, the court has been told by Mr Stephen Mitchell, for the prosecution. The defendant had claimed he found photographs showing a man he recognized as Edward Heath and another man he has named as a Det Sgt Wallace. Mr Heath has denied being in the alleged photographs. The woman said in evidence yesterday that, although the defendant had taken some pictures of her undressed, they were of her alone. She said she had never been photographed with det Sgt Wallace or had sexual intercourse with him. Cross-examined by the defendant, she denied ever seeing a briefcase in her home with the initials “E.A.H.” on it. She also denied his allegation that she had been part of a prostitution ring. The trial was adjourned until today.
January 18th 1984
An accused man’s claim that he was framed by the authorities because he had discovered pornographic photographs of his lover, naked, In poses with Mr Edward Heath, the former Prime Minister, and a detective sergeant, were “wild and totally unfounded” the prosecution maintained at the Central Criminal Court yesterday. Mr Stephen Mlitchell, for the Crown, told a jury of seven women and five men that the allegations of the existence of such photographs had been made last October at the man’s first trial which was halted after three weeks and a new trial ordered. The defendant, aged 37, has pleaded not guilty to charges of raping and assaulting his former mistress, aged 32, a mother of three daughters. The defendant claimed he had discovered five colour photographs in the jewel box of the woman with whom he lived at their flat in 1976, while they were living at Woolwich, south east London. Their young daughters were looking on allegedly as the woman posed on her bed. Mr Heath was said to have been in two of the photographs, and the detective Sergeant, Brian Wallace, in three of them. But, Mr Mitchell said, no such photographs existed,although the jury would probably spent a great deal of time listening to comments about them. The defendant also claimed that he had found a black briefcase, bearing an MP’s initials, in a cupboard at his former lover’s flat. Some photographs did exist, Mr Mitchell said. The woman remembered that she had once posed nude and semi-nude. But the existence of “the odd dirty photo” whould not have any great influence on the case, he said. The man was accused of threatening his former lover with a knife and a hammer after breaking into her home in September 1982, and raping and assaulting her. He was also accused of assaulting her in June of that year. The hearing continues.
