Child abuse victims blast Theresa May – Pride’s Purge


Survivors of institutional child abuse have written an extraordinary letter to the Home Secretary Theresa May telling her the government’s official inquiry is “not fit for purpose” and they will no longer cooperate with it, writes Tom Pride.

In the unprecedented letter, child abuse survivors and professionals accuse Theresa May’s Home Office of “obfuscation“, “lack of transparency” and “manipulations“.

To read the letter itself, visit Pride’s Purge.

    I am really glad that the survivors have made this stand. It should be an absolutely independent enquiry, and the survivors should be totally involved.

    I understand why the survivors have made a stand, but they should tread carefully because I believe the Establishment is looking for an excuse to do away with the Inquiry altogether. They must not, under any circumstances, be allowed to.
