Investigate Nick: Lord Bramall wants police to go after man who accused him of sex crimes
Lord Bramall was once head of the British Army. He achieved prominence in more recent times because someone told the police he’d abused them. Last Friday, Lord Bramall was, 92, was cleared of all any any wrong doing. In between the accusation and being cleared, the Lord saw his home raided by police working with Operation Midland .
They found nothing to prove the allegation.
Operation Midland is described thus by the BBC:
Established in November 2014, Operation Midland is examining claims that boys were abused by a group of powerful men from politics, the military and law enforcement agencies at locations across southern England and in London in the 1970s and 1980s. It is also examining claims that three boys were murdered. Operation Midland has focused on the Dolphin Square estate in Pimlico, south-west London.
Bramall now says police should take a closer look at ‘Nick’, the figure who told the police about the alleged dead boys and the rape. He says: “I think he should be. My lawyers suggested to the police when we…knew they had absolutely nothing: surely Nick should be prosecuted for wasting police time?”
Tory MP Bob Stewart agrees: “I can’t believe the police would even entertain such claims against a man like Bramall. Why can’t they bring charges against the man making these claims?”
Wasting police time, or police wasting their own time in what critics have labelled a witch-hunt and an exercise in police PR.
The Sunday Times:
Nick’s allegations followed claims that a VIP paedophile ring involving politicians, military figures and spy chiefs had operated at the heart of Westminster. So far police have failed to substantiate this.
‘So far?’ Bit leading that comment, no?
