‘Gay’ Enoch Powell: The Satanic Abuse panic collides with the VIP peado hunt

4th June 1975: Ulster Unionist politician and scholar Enoch Powell making a speech under a large arrow reading 'Out' beside a map of Britain.


Westminster paedophiles: a look at reporting on the allegation VIPs abused children in the 1970s and 1980s.

The story of an establishment cover-up appears in not a single tabloid today. Nor did it feature yesterday. The story that was once front-page news is now sleeping.

The most recent story to feature in any national newspaper appeared on March 30 in the Independent.  Readers learned that “Enoch Powell, the Conservative anti-immigrant firebrand, is being investigated as an alleged member of a claimed Westminster paedophile network after his name was supplied to police by a senior Anglican bishop.”

Enoch Powell is dead.

The story includes the phrase “ritual satanic abuse” something that should make anyone who recalls the Orkney  and Cleveland horrors shudder. Back then the creepy, sex-obssessed State ripped children from their parents. Tasked with finding Satanic abuse, the State found what they wanted to.

In the wake of the dawn raids by social workers in which a number of children were taken from homes in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, and the Orkney Islands, an inquiry was ordered by the Government.

Well, if you can’t trust the Church to look after your kids, who can you trust? That question is addressed in today’s Telegraph :

Churches are still viewed as a “soft touch” by paedophiles hunting for new victims despite tightening up child protection measures after a flood of abuse scandals, one of Britain’s leading experts on the issue has warned.

Justin Humphreys, Head of Safeguarding at the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS), an independent body set up to combat clerical abuse, said convicted paedophiles often seek out places of worship on their release because of members’ belief in forgiveness.

Now back to the Indy’s report on Powell:

It is understood that the Rt Rev Walker first heard the claims when he was counselling young adults as a curate in the 1980s and claims were made
