Naked photos of Princess Margaret, a Tory paedo and an honest villain
Just when you thought the story of paedophiles in high place had died on its arse, the Daily Mirror brings news. We no longer need rely on ‘Nick’ to blow the whistle on VIP paedos in Westminster because we have a convicted felon to tell all.
Hatton Gardens heist boss Brian Reader was horrified when his gang broke into a bank vault and found sickening photos of a leading politician abusing children.
‘We might be thieves but we don’t go in for blackmail,’ ma’am. It’s all about standards.
But the notorious crook was shocked further when the thieves left the pictures for police to find – only for the Tory Cabinet minister’s crimes to be hushed up.
Crooks trust police to solve sickening crimes! Read all about it!
Reader, known as The Guv’nor, is facing jail for planning last year’s £14million Hatton Garden raid and claims about his previous high-profile break-in can now be revealed for the first time.
Reader will very soon have an actual Guv’nor to tuck him in of a night.
A close confidant of 76-year-old career criminal Reader said: “It was a shock for them when they found photographs of a famous politician abusing children. The gang were disgusted and left them lying on the floor of the vault for the police to find but nothing was ever done.”
Not one career villain thought, ‘Allo! this could be our ‘Get out of jail free card.’ They just dropped the sick images on the floor and scarpered.
The Government of the time allegedly forced the press to stop reporting on the burglary as a matter of national security amid allegations raunchy photos of the late Princess Margaret were found in another safety deposit box in the vault.
Raunchy? Got to love the Mirror that manages to cover a story from the 1970s by employing the language of that time. And as for being forced to stop reporting, well, isn’t the Mirror a, er, newspaper. Can it ask old staffers to confirm or deny that allegation? The paper can’t say for certain what it was doing on the night of Monday, September 13, 1971. Can’t today’s scoopsters just ask Tony Miles, who was the Mirror’s editor during that period, if a D Notice was issued?
But the latest claims, revealed to the Daily Mirror, are more disturbing and further evidence of the Establishment cover-up of powerful paedophiles.
No. They are evidence of nothing. They are a claim by an unnamed source who knows a villain.
We are not naming the politician, who has since died and was never publicly linked to allegations of child sexual abuse.
Why spoil the fun. Name away. He’s dead. And what’s that part about not being “publicly linked to allegations”? Was he linked to allegations in private?
But we have passed details to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, which is set to examine claims against Labour peer Lord Janner, who died before facing trial for child sexual abuse, and Lib Dem MP Cyril Smith, whose paedophilia was exposed after his death.
Dead. Dead. And dead. What’s one more corpse to kick around.
Inquiry chairman Judge Goddard said in November: “We will conduct an objective fact-finding inquiry into allegations of abuse by people of public prominence associated with Westminster.”
More or less objective than the Mirror’s story of a missing photo of an unnamed “TORY CHILD ABUSER”?
“The investigation will focus on high-profile allegations of child sexual abuse involving current or former Members of Parliament, senior civil servants, Government advisers, and members of the intelligence and security agencies. It will consider allegations of cover-up and conspiracy and will review the adequacy of law enforcement responses to these allegations.”
Well, if that’s what the State’s judge says…
Over pages 4 and 5 we hear moe of “The Guv’nor”, a name-de-crime the Mirror hopes will lend his statement credibility. Villains named Matt The Talc, Fingers or Skull Cracker are less trustworthy. And don’t get us started on Tony Bagels.
If the images found by Reader had been made public at the time, it would have caused a massive political scandal.
Well, yes. If.
In 1971, he was beginning a criminal career spanning five decades which would involve him in raids worth more than £150million and make him Britain’s biggest thief. His gang had spent months planning the Baker Street job. They rented a leather goods shop, two doors up from the bank, and then tunnelled 40ft from the shop basement into the vaults. Once inside, they ransacked 268 safety deposit boxes – nearly four times the 73 opened by the Hatton Garden gang.
Was he the Guv’nor back then? Or was he a Junior?
A second source, a gang member, previously told the Mirror in 2008 that child pornography was found in the vaults but did not give further details. He said: “We were disgusted and left it in their open boxes so police could trace the owners.”
Exhibit a: Items found in open boxes left by villains after a raid. Yes, we can see that one standing up in court.
“We didn’t want to take anything that might give us extra trouble. All we wanted was cash and jewels.”
Gawd bless ’em.
At the time of the raid, Princess Margaret’s marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones, Earl of Snowdon, was in its final stages. In the 60s and 70s the Queen’s sister was known to party hard on the Caribbean island of Mustique… She is said to have taken snaps of male friends frolicking naked but it is not known if any were ever taken of her.
The ex-raider would only say: “I can’t talk about that.”
At which point a flag lowers, the Great British villains bow their heads, tug a forelock and say as one, “Nuffink wiv women or kids.”
