June 6, 1996, The Guardian, ‘True scandal of the child abusers’.
From East Belfast’s Kincora Boys’ Home, via Leicestershire, Staffordshire and London, to the children’s homes of Clwyd, we have witnessed 25 years of cover-up. Cover-up, not to protect the innocent but to protect the regularly named elements of the British establishment who surface whenever widespread evidence of child abuse is exposed.
From the public schools right through to the Catholic and Anglican churches, child abuse has been allowed a special place of sanctuary… Social workers, police, security services, local and national political figures remain the common factors in the fall-out from the [child abuse] inquiries…
In case after case the cycle is described – a child is ‘taken into care’, then abused in a home, handed on to an outside paedophile ring and out on to the rent-boy/prostitution circuit beyond, if they live that long… Journalists find themselves battling first with authority, then with the libel laws, to publish the truth about a vast web of abuse.
“The Times” – 31 October 1999: – from John Harlow, Social Affairs Editor – additional reporting Zoe Brennan and Simon Trump :-
“Paedophile inquiry … Several public figures … in a paedophile ring, including leading politicians, aristocrats and senior policemen” and – “Such is the sensitivity of the document that the only copy is due to be placed in a strong room at the Cabinet Office”
Some people think that there could also be a connection between Jill Dando’s murder and the care home scandals.
