Westminster paedophiles: the elite say every adult is now a suspect

martin allen Westminster paedophiles: a look at reporting on allegations that VIPs abused and killed children in the 1970s and 1980s.

Sky News: “Family Demands Names Of New Child Abuse Files”

The Cabinet Office’s refusal to give details of four new child abuse files has angered many, not least the family of Martin Allen.

Tom Parmenter reports:

The Government’s refusal to reveal the titles of four files related to child abuse has been branded “disgusting” by the family of a boy missing since 1979.

Why keep secrets? Are those in power waiting for more names to die?

It is now over a month since the Cabinet Office confirmed it had found four more files relevant to the ongoing child abuse inquiries centred on VIPs in Westminster. Officials have promised the files will be handed over to the police and various inquiries but they are still refusing to allow the titles of the files to be made public, let alone the contents.

The police. You trust them? Tell the media. Tell those named. Get it out in the open.

The missing remain powerless. ‘Lessons have been learned ‘is the mantra. But when a child goes missing, it’s closure their family need.

It has angered many survivors and campaigners, not least the family of Martin Allen who was 15 years old when he vanished in London nearly 35 years ago. The teenager was last seen on the London Underground with an unidentified man at Gloucester Road station on 5 November 1979. His brother Kevin Allen told Sky News he was “pretty definite” there is a link between the establishment abuse networks in Westminster and his brother’s disappearance.

But it’s a guess, an assumption based on hope and feeling. The evidence is not there. But he makes a sound point:

“It makes me very angry, because these people have got a hold over us. It is our information, these people are our employees taking our money which is more than ‘Mr Average’ earns probably in the course of a month. It is disgusting.

It is information entrusted to institutions of law and order. Mr Allen hints at what lies at the heart of this matter: a lack of faith in the State. The default position for the country’s political leaders is to make pronouncements on the horrors of the past. And you don’t need evidence. You only need fear of implication and desire to look morally sound.

Home Secretary Teresa May is on the conspiracy trail. When an investigtion by NSPCC boss Peter Wanless and Richard Whittam QC found no proof of a 1980s Establishment paedophile ring, May opined: “It doesn’t prove or disprove the Home Office acted appropriately in the 1980s. There might have been a cover-up.”

Wanless and Whittam found no proof the Home Office had destroyed files and documents relating to child abuse by politicians and other leading social figures. But May was unable to stick to the facts.

May was in tune with other populist voices, like Channel 4, which talked of “the secret’s of a country’s dark past”.  So secretive are these secrets that we’ve seen no evidence of the darkness.

 

 

If the position in the past was to ignore victims and perpetrators, the current position is to accept every claim as a truth-in-waiting. Fear of exposure has been replaced by fear of facts. May and Channel 4 are tuned into the trend that it is a bigger mistake to show something that isn’t there than to miss something that was there.

To understand the sickness, we need to understand the methodology that goes into indentifying it. And it helps to look at the world of medicine. The Patient Safety Network’s words ring true for an individual’s illness as they do for the country’s paedophile malaise:

An act of commission (doing something wrong) or omission (failing to do the right thing) that leads to an undesirable outcome or significant potential for such an outcome. For instance, ordering a medication for a patient with
