Lord Janner scandal day 46: strolling so leisurely
Lord Greville Janner: a look at news on the Labour peer embroiled in allegations that he abused children. He maintains his innocence.
It’s been 46 days since the Crown Prosecution Sevice decided not to prosecute Lord Janner on gounds of his failing health.
We’ve seen the racism, heard Janner’s Commons Address, reviewed the iffy evidence, revisited Ernest Saunders, thrilled and shuddered to stories of alleged murder, piled in on DPP Alison Saunders, dug up Liberal Democrat councillor and convicted nonce Frank Beck – who worked for MI6 and children were bathed like dogs – saw links the Iraq war and fiddling expenses, been treated to the State-serving Goddard inquiry, spotted a Labour MP in Scotland, listened to lawyers for the alleged victims weep for justice, and watched the police focus on the dead.
The mainstream news stopped reporting on Westminster paedos for the General Election.
All we’ve had to go on is:
BBC – May 28: “Leicestershire Police is calling for a review of the Crown Prosecution Service’s (CPS) decision not to charge ex-Labour MP Lord Janner over child abuse allegations.”
Hurrah for the police! Sure, they might have ignored the alleged victims for decades, but they are now working at the vanguard of justice, nicking innocent people as they fly into Heathrow Airport and raiding homes as the cameras of the purified BBC role. Give them a call and you will be believed.
The BBC adds:
The force has sent a letter to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) who said Lord Janner, 86, would not face charges because of his dementia.The request is separate to a review that was granted under the CPS Victims’ Right to Review Scheme.
The CPS has 14 days to respond and the force said it “reserves its right to seek a judicial review of the decision”.
The allegations relate to residents in children’s homes in Leicestershire in the 1970s and 1980s.
Tick tock goes the copper’s pension clock.
On May 25, the Express had a photo of Janner looking every one of his 86 years walking in public:
A LABOUR peer who was ruled too ill to stand trial over allegations of child sexual abuse, has been spotted taking a stroll in London.
“Stroll”. Such a loaded term, suggestive of leaisure and insouciance. The man has dementia. He has not had the chance to clear his name in court. His innocence must be presumed.
The mainstream media never did expose any wrongdoing all those years ago. But now everyone is on the side of the angels. Everyone knows. The past is being beaten with sticks, stripped of knighthoods and peerages and buried.
Balls, of course. Rotherham, Rochdale and Blackpool teach us that. Find Charlene Downes. She should have a story to tell.
