Lord Greville Janner of Braunstone: a round-up of media reporting on the Labour peer mired in the story of Westminster peados. It’s been 67 days since the Crown Prosecution Sevice decided not to prosecute Lord Janner on gounds of his failing health.

The Sun : “Peer ‘raped kids in Parliament’ MP accuses Lord Janner”

That is some accusation. And it’s been made by Labour MP Simon Danczuk.

The campaigning MP’s comments came in a Westminster Hall debate – giving him protection from being sued for libel.

Any evidence to support the claims?

He blasted: “The shocking thing is that the CPS admits that the witnesses are not unreliable, it admits that Janner should face prosecution but refuses to bring a case. I know the police are furious about this and rightly so. Anyone who has heard the accusations will be similarly outraged.”

They are not unreliable but the DPP says the defendant is.

 

He went on: “I have met with Leicestershire police and discussed the allegations in detail. Children being violated, raped and tortured – some in the very building in which we now sit.”

Those are allegations.

He added: “Personally I fail to see how the knowledge that a peer of the realm is a serial child abuser is not in the public interest.”

Hold on. The knowledge that he is has not been established. That’s the problem. All we have are allegations. If Danczuk is certain of Lord Janner’s giuilt then why not slap the proof in the public domain?

The BBC :

Lord Janner has been accused in Parliament of being a serial abuser who attacked children inside the Palace of Westminster. Labour MP Simon Danczuk said police had told him they wanted to bring 22 historical charges against Lord Janner, dating between 1969 and 1988.

Today’s police do. But yesterday’s police did not.

Lord Janner’s family has said that the peer “is entirely innocent of any wrongdoing”.

His innocence must be presumed, right?

The Rochdale MP continued: “If Lord Janner really is too ill to face prosecution, then why can’t the courts establish this with a fitness to plead process? This would clear up doubts that still linger, for example why he was still visiting parliament on official visits after he was declared unfit to face justice.”

Yes, indeed. The MP for Rochdale,
