Leon Brittan and ‘Improper Conduct With Children.’

The full video of the Parliament session can be viewed HERE.

In my view Jim Hood MP should be commended for using parliamentary privilege to expose the child abuse allegations regarding the former Home Secretary Leon Brittan.

Since the appointment of Fiona Woolf as chairperson of the CSA Inquiry objections have been raised regarding her closeness to Leon Brittan and because no one in the media have been able to reference these child abuse allegations the general public have been left a little confused as to why so many object to Fiona Woolf as chairperson. Afterall. Lord Brittan had only mislaid a dossier, right ?

The fact is that Fiona Woolf has attended 5 dinner parties with a person alleged to have abused children himself.

Of course, it shouldn’t have been too hard for anyone to work out. Why else would a police operation run by the Metropolitan Police Paedophile Unit have investigated him over the rape of an adult ? Unless…

Parliamentary privilege only allows the media to report what is said in parliament. Unfortunately, it doesn’t allow them to elaborate on what has been said.

But Jim Hood is correct. There are very serious allegations of child abuse against Leon Brittan.

And it should now be plain to everyone exactly why Fiona Woolf must step down as chair of the CSA Inquiry.


During a Commons debate on coalfield communities last night, Mr Hood said: “By the way, the current exposé of Sir Leon Brittan [sic], the then home secretary, with accusations of improper conduct with children will not come as a surprise to striking miners of 1984.”

MPs immediately challenged Mr Hood over his comments.

Conor Burns, the Conservative MP for Bournemouth West, said: “He has just made very profound, serious accusations against a noble lord. Is that in order?”

Lindsay Hoyle, the Deputy Speaker, said that he had not heard Mr Hood’s comments but added: “It’s up to each member to decide what they said and they must make that decision.”

However, Mr Hood continued: “The rumours that Sir Leon Brittan was involved with misconduct with children does not come as news to miners who were striking in 1984. When miners were going up into the dock in magistrates’ courts we were aware and miners were declaring… the point is miners were saying in the dock in magistrates’ courts throughout the strike that they objected to instructions coming from the home secretary when there was reports about child abuse being linked with that same home secretary.”

Mr Hoyle interrupted the Labour MP and said: “I think it is up to each MP, we have to be very careful on what we said, and we must consider what we are saying and what the implications are.”

Mr Hood continued: “I accept, obviously, what you say but I’m just repeating what I’m reading in the papers.”

    Parliamentary privilege in action… more of the same please. This is what freedom of speech is about. Not being bullied by lawyers paid by corrupt rich people. Expect nothing to come of this as the establishment does not want this to come up before the election.

    well done mr hood ,the msm had been rather tongue tied regarding this aspect of the situation.

  5. Jean Westley

    Well done Jim Hood. Name that skulking pervert. Lets get this investigation going and those highly placed public figure should have no place to hide.

    The Front Bench immediately called upon the shadow Front Bench to dissociate themselves from the honourable member’s remarks !

    They still plan on keeping the lid on !!!

    Janner would be the safer bet, but he really would be an Honourable gentleman if he named the other one !

    • Janner now had galloping Alzheimer’s. Coincidentally he had developed this in May this year after Police raided his office and home in December last year. Why did Police take 5 months to question him? No doubt Leicestershire police had no intention of carrying out a real investigation. Alzheimers is usually a slow burning disease affecting short term memory initially. Janner had been participating in business on the House of Lords up until his home and office were raided. To say he couldn’t answer questions about allegations 20 or 30 years ago smacks of Ernest Saunders’ curable Alzheimers.

    You would think that Hood wouldn’t have much time for ‘socialists’ that spend time with Osborne and oligarchs on yachts ;-)

    There are many candidates some of which it really would be unfair to allude to.

    Would the boat be Morning Cloud….or was that a yacht?

    • Sabre

      The yacht that you are referring to is morning cloud. Heath is prowling around in hell now so you needn’t worry about litigation.

      The boat I was referring to shouldn’t make one leap to conclusions.

  11. The delay , prevarication and downright obstruction in the examination into this suggest that it goes right to the heart of the establishment, the Establishment can run scared for the election but when this Pandora’s box of perversion is finally opened those in power and recently in power will be unable to escape the wrath and fury of the electorate nor hopefully the severe penalties that justice will dispense on them for their betrayal of the high offices of state tainted by their tenure.

      Illegal wars, global economic collapse due to Banking fraud, and the expenses scandal, we all vowed that enough was enough.

      The public will be allowed to vent when and if this comes to a head and then it’ll be beer and circuses again for the great unwashed while the crooks settle back down to rule the world.

    Have the police finally run out of elderly minor celebrities and are now going to get on with the job that everyone watching has been waiting for?

  13. Why not have done with this sham of an enquiry head and just appoint Gary Glitter?
