In the light of yesterday’s revelations by Hatton Gardens Heist perpetrator Brian Reader, this allegation seems all-too-plausible.
The claim was that images of a then-Conservative cabinet minister committing child abuse were found by Reader at the site of a 1971 bank raid and left for police to find – but no arrests were made or investigation launched.
What a shame we can’t call for a vote of ‘no confidence’ in police officers.
A former Conservative MP who is under investigation for child murder has accused the Metropolitan police of attempting to kill off the Westminster paedophile inquiry to protect the careers of senior officers.
Harvey Proctor made the claim after the Met’s Operation Midland – which is investigating claims that establishment figures murdered and raped boys – dropped claims of child abuse against the war hero Lord Bramall.
Steve Rodhouse, deputy chief constable of the Met, who is in charge of Operation Midland, has written to Proctor’s solicitors to say that detectives are assessing new information which could be relevant to their inquiry.
The former MP for Billericay, who denies the claims against him, said Rodhouse’s latest claim was part of a plan to kill off Operation Midland by degrees.
“This is all part of the media management of the Met as they plan how to wave the white flag over this inquiry in a way that does senior officers the least amount of damage,” he said.
