I’ve been following this story for over a year. The “civilized” British let it go on for years, maybe decades — and the scandal encompasses many, many more celebrities and powerful people than they mention in this one story.

An investigation into claims in the 1980s that an MP had a “penchant for small boys” ended when he gave his word that he was not a paedophile, a review of government papers has discovered.

Peter Wanless, head of the NSPCC, and lawyer Richard Whittam QC, reported last year that there was no evidence that the government had destroyed documents about an alleged Establishment paedophile ring.

However, the Cabinet Office only belatedly discovered a number of other relevant documents, which have now been considered by the lawyers. They said they found no suggestion of a Whitehall cover-up in the new material, but added that the discovery of the files “illustrates the merit of a broader search of potentially relevant material both on and off the system”.

However, the papers did contain a “striking example” of how crimes against children were treated much less seriously than they would be now. The lawyers cited a document written in November 1986 about an unnamed MP accused by two sources of having a “penchant for small boys” by the then head of MI5, Sir Antony Duff, and sent to Sir Robert Armstrong, now Baron Armstrong of Ilminster but then Secretary of the Cabinet under Margaret Thatcher.

Sir Antony wrote: “At the present stage… the risks of political embarrassment to the government is rather greater than the security danger.”

  1. Ages ago before the internet existed I spotted a feature in the Nation by a reporter who had been smuggled into the red light district of, I think it was Mumbai back when it was Bombay. Someone who had lived and worked in the area for a long time made some chilling observations to the reporter. The person said that they could tell what the pet vices of their dominant wealthy colonizers du jour happened to be by the changes in what was in demand in the red light district. The person further observed that when the British men were in charge, their most dominant secret vice was homosexuality. Even worse, the person noted that as Arabs had come to replace the British as their new wealthy guests, their biggest secret vice tended toward pedophilia.
