If you didn’t see it then here’s the first 30 mins of a sensational piece of British broadcasting journalism.
Channel Four news announced they were putting the past on trial by broadcasting a series of reports covering the North Wales care homes scandals, Hillsborough, Jimmy Savile, the freemasons and paedophile rings. Quite an unbelievable compendium of reports in what has to be a landmark moment in television journalism.
We can only hope that the momentum behind these stories doesn’t stall.
Earlier today something unprecedented happened on British TV. Presenter Philip Schofield was interviewing Prime Minister David Cameron on the ITV programme This Morning, when completely out of the blue he produced a written list of names who he had found plastered over the Internet as suspected child paedophiles. He handed the list to Cameron and asked if he was going to speak to those people on the list about the allegations. Presumably because some of the names might have been prominent MPs.
Inexplicably Cameron’s reply, (incidentally without even looking at the list), was to suggest that this was an action which could spark a witch hunt against people who are gay. That’s right the Prime Minister was warning Philip Schofield that the names on the list were gay, not suspected child paedophiles, but homosexuals. I’m I the only one who doesn’t understand this response?
To start with the names are from the Internet which let’s be honest isn’t always the most reliable source of solid information, or indeed evidence but Schofield’s actions are just the latest in a long line of developments which point to a real possibility that an elite British paedophile ring has operated on these shores for over 40 years, whose members may have included prominent MPs. Just last month Labour MP Tom Watson addressed Cameron in parliament during Prime Minister’s Questions and asked about allegations involving an aide to a former Prime Minister who could allegedly procure pictures of children.
Cameron is certainly feeling the pressure mount with this story but to somehow use the cover of being a ‘homosexual’ when these people are being accused of child paedophilia is quite simply baffling.
