Also, remember the cycle of abuse - the abused and damaged often turn themselves to abuse.

Nevertheless, I find it highly likely that the police simply got dragged along by the mania of impending paedogeddon being whipped up by the popular media. To think that they are immune to such societal pressures would be very naive indeed.

Shame Leon Brittan didn't live to see this.

Not Tom Watson's finest hour either.
Indeed it isn't and he should aplogise ASAP. This has given the likes of Littlejohn, Young and others just the ammunination they need.

"Noncefinder General", wasn't it?
Yes of course, this will be milked to the cows come home by the likes of Spiked, as it proves they were right about victim culture.

If Spiked try to milk any crap out of it, just remind them that one of their most prominent writers has defended the right for anyone to download child pornography and child abuse. They'll either then wisely STFU or start digging deeper holes for themselves.

True, as I pointed out upthread I think quite a few people need to do a lot of soul searching.

Well, as an out-and-out Corbynite you'd expect that.

I used to enjoy his blogs but since he turned into Crewe's answer to AAV - along with the coterie of sycophantic (and downright nasty) twats in the comments section - I find him a lot less readable now.

Watson made a mistake. But be in no doubt he, and the police, had to take this seriously; it's written into the Children Act (1989, 2004) that the interests of children and young people are paramount, that the assumption will always be that they are telling the truth.

This was enacted to counter a culture in which the interests of children and young people were routinely ignored or downgraded, that the adults were assumed to be telling the truth.

The tragedy of this case is that the disclosure of abuse will now be under the shadow of malicious prosecution, and those who, for whatever purpose, want to ignore it will have fig-leaf cover.

Fenton is now, officially, a Kool-Aid drinker and a cultist. This is a pretty disgusting piece, and does abused children no favours.

Fenton may want to think twice about flinging mud.
