Ministers hid abuse, says charity chief
'I've been targeted for speaking out about child sex abuse by powerful people', claims Kids Company founder
There is more that is being suppressed and some of it involving historic sexual abuse of children involving very senior members of the establishment. And some child protection police officers have come to me to say that their investigations are being squashed
But Ms Batmanghelidjh said "huge discussions" had taken place with the Cabinet Office before Kids Company decided to use part of the £3m grant to help pay its monthly wage bill.
She said an email was sent by the charity to the Cabinet Office saying the money would be needed for staff wages, but the Cabinet Office did not respond and say the money could not be used in this way.
Child sex abuse by senior Establish figures is worse than we think
I believe that the problem that elements of government and civil servants are having with me is because I am very outspoken
There is more [than we know about] that is being suppressed, and some if it involves historic sexual abuse of children, involving very senior members of the establishment

Although I do believe there was/is abuse of children going on by former/present high profile figures, based on what I read the charity was mismanaged financially (no coin in the coffers to shore them up over a 'dry' period of funding for starters!) Hence the sudden closure.
And the govt. is saying the charity did get its £3M funding just the other month...despite being advised it was not value for money therfore not in the taxpayers interest etc. ...they were just so badly mismanaged it didn't last long.
I think the people blaming it on a cover up of abuse allegations are taking advantage of a sick situation and are devaluing the abused childrens claims when trying to cover their own liability for ruining the charity with such allegations.

Okay, ive thought it through and i still think that anyone who, even in the smallest way, is involved with helping to cover up the activities of those who seek to harm children, who are amongst the most innocent and vulnerable in our society need bringing to justice.
Dude, many of these elected officials have done f'd up stuff to kids which is still being covered up, dont even try to justify their actions.
