Scotland Yard investigating allegations senior politicians abused children in the 1980s and used 'connections' to escape justice


www.independent.co.uk

During past weeks officers from the Metropolitan Police’s child abuse investigation team have interviewed several adults who claim that they were sexually assaulted as children by MPs in a paedophile ring.

The team was set up following claims by Labour MP Tom Watson in the House Commons that the police should look afresh at claims of a “powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and No 10”.

Until today when the Metropolitan Police confirmed its existence, the inquiry, Operation Fairbank, had been operating in secret at the headquarters of the Child Abuse Investigation Team at

Many will have heard of the investigation into former BBC children's presenter, Jimmy Savile and the polices' 'Operation Yewtree' arrests.

Whilst UK newspapers have featured 'paedo bogeyman' Savile nearly everyday and kept us informed of the latest 'c list' celebrity to be questioned on isolated assault charges - they have been quiet about any possible links to politicians and the establishment.
In November a witness to longterm abuse in a Welsh care home, Steve Messham, was the victim of character assasinations in the press when he spoke out and a certain Tory MP that WAS investigated in the 90's about abuse was the one getting the apologies and compensation.

Last night it was revealed police are conducting an investigation into top level poiticians but this is being kept very quiet by the media. It's hidden somewhere in the middle of another story on the Daily mail website.

Will we see some high profile arrests in the next few weeks that are actually related to widespread, institutional child abuse in the UK, or will we see another white wash and things swept cleverly under the carpet again?

An 82 year old Australian entertainer was questioned... Strong word has it that it was Rolf Harris. All of this is just disgusting. Life imprisonment with no parole for any found guilty.

This is wonderful.
It'll be nice to see people who used their status and privilege to escape justice run through the mud at the very least, and hopefully finding themselves up on some charges they can't wriggle out of.

I suspect some might take the opportunity to settle their affairs in private by taking their own lives as opposed to allowing themselves to be held accountable where they felt above the law.

Very interesting.
I recall a video out recently of a woman describing how she was fondled on the telly as millions watched by a prominent TV celebrity of the time many years ago when she was 16 and on the show with several other youth, but was told to sod off when she attempted complaint to TV producers and people in authority.

Anyone recall that?

Yes a man in his 80s from Berkshire was interviewed but released without charge and has not been (officially named).

Personally I think the ageing celebs are a distraction, the really shocking story is the large number of alledged abusers in the police, care homes, government etc.

Thanks Drucilla.

I hope they do get dragged through the mud but I'm not hopeful when people within the police and government have been accused of being involved in it themselves.

Savile is like a poster boy that everyone can hate now he's dead. He can't name names which is handy!

Not sure how arresting any paedophile could be considered a "distraction".

This seems like fantastic news, yet every investigation so far gets stopped, diverted & closed down.
If I believe this investigation was truly out to uncover the truth and honestly investigate, regardless of where the investigation takes them, I would be over the moon, however, whenever previous investigations have got too close to elite politicians or to royalty (yes there are senior royals who have abused children) or to any serious top level people, the investigation eventually collapses.

They also have secret courts, they edit statements, they stop victims from naming certain people and, as far as I'm aware, children in care are actually NOT allowed to accuse someone of abuse and their testimony is not permissible... Something jack straw introduced, although I'm not entirely clear of exactly the rule/ban, perhaps someone can correct/help me?

Anyway, call me a cynic but I won't be holding my breath.

I am actually quite hopeful about a proper investigation. I also happen to think the lack of details at present is more to do with the outcry and backlash that happened from so much being publicly splashed over the media at the beginning (for example, Cameron being ambushed by Philip Schofield). I tend to think they are just now handling the investigation properly.

I could obviously be wrong but i hope not.

I had a thread going on this scandal last month which did garner a lot of attention but has now slipped off the radar...

I can only hope that whoever is responsible are bought to justice but it seems these reports in the media are soon eclipsed by something else....

Just adding my thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Plenty of discussion on there about it

To be honest this story just had not taken off on ATS at all.
The story should be huge, it's a true conspiracy and involves elites of all description.
There are sites out there with balls, really discussing this.
On another site, one thread is 1500+ pages has 3.5m views, and Christ knows how many posts, truly staggering numbers, ATS is just not the place for this story, really not sure why.

Sure we do, it was very recent. Although watching it, while it was inappropriate, it seemed to be brushed off as 'Red Blooded' if there's a British term such as the American one.
Still technically abhorrent and distasteful, it should have been addressed right then.
I doubt many were aware of her age perhaps.

I meant in the sense that these particular celebs are accused of acting independently and not as part of a huge paeodophile network that involves those in government.
I'm not debating the serioussness of the crimes the celeb's arrested under Yewtree committed, just pointing out where the media focus is.

I'm over there on the other thread.


Just thought I'd let ATS know that Operation fairbank is investigating UK Mp's and getting no mention in the British press.

There have been lots of things coming out recently... MPs expenses scandal, Hillsborough etc... maybe things are changing, who knows?

Maybe this investigation will be what's needed.


We shall see I suppose.

Good research.

Nothing that could effect the present establishment will ever be allowed to make the MSN.

AFAIK, he hasnt been charged or bailed so why name him?
Yes, his name was all over the internet ( as another person was ) but are we all now judge and jury by bringing their names forward when they havent been convicted of anything?
Thats just WRONG!!!
We are supposed to live in one of the great democracies of the World yet people are being hung out to dry on heresay and gossip
Peoples whole lives are on the line here and to be even mentioned in the context of sexual abuse can be catastrophic because, you know, "no smoke without fire" horse sh*t.....................
Anyway, as a poster has said, this subject has had very little air time here and its had very little airtime because, it would seem to me, the vast majority of users of this forum do not reside in the UK and, as is the case, if its not something they can directly relate to, they aint interested, which is fair enough i suppose.
I mean, Jimmy Savile? Nobody outside of the British Isles is likely to have heard of him, right?
I dont actually think this will be swept under the carpet, this is a biggie, way to big to hide and, as the allegations go back decades, you will expect those involved with the crimes are no longer in any position of influence or power to make it go away.
We hope.

That's what I feel too but plenty of people are using social media to discuss this and even handing out old fashioned paper leaflets, hopefully it can make a difference.

I agree with you about the celeb that wasn't charged or named. It's just possible he was innocent and the police have an agenda to make an example of well known entertainers at the moment. With Saville there were rumours and anecdotes floating around for YEARS, no such rumours with the others. The police have got things wrong before and manipulated evidence to suit themselves.

After all, can we trust what the police say when there are criminals within their own ranks?




A list of more than 2,400 Britons who the FBI believes have subscribed to paedophile websites contains the names of more than 100 police officers, including a detective chief superintendent, it was revealed last night. But in what was developing into a major scandal, it was also disclosed that it could take under-funded British police up to five years to work their way through the list and bring the culprits to justice.

The list - which contained the names of the two Cambridgeshire police officers who worked on the Jessica Chapman and Holly Wells murder inquiry and who have since been charged with child pornography offences - was supplied to Britain's National Crime Squad after three people suspected of involvement in paedophile websites were arrested in Texas.
