Home Secretary Theresa May is to disband the panel for the overarching inquiry into child sex abuse, according to Exaro News.

She wrote to each member of the panel at the end of last week to say that she is considering turning it into a statutory inquiry, or setting up a fresh statutory inquiry or a Royal Commission.

But her move has prompted fury among panel members. They are urging May to convert the inquiry to statutory status and keep the current panel.

You can read the rest of the article on the Exaro News website.

It seems Theresa May is saying she’ll get rid of the panel’s members in response to concerns about those members, raised by abuse survivors – but panel members have accused her of listening to a vocal minority set against the inquiry instead of the majority of those who have survived abuse.

Who could this minority be?

Well, in a leaked letter to Theresa May, panel member Sharon Evans states: “I was… informed by three men who did not know each other and all who described themselves as having no political axe to grind, that a senior politician has been having sex with young boys and his marriage is a sham.”

Hmm.

    how to commit political suicide. no self respecting voting parent will vote her back in or the tories back in.

    Well, no surprises there! They must have been very close to uncovering something major and May has put a block on it so they dither around until the election and then it is ‘lost’.

    But I don’t think this will happen! Far too may people are coming forward and speaking up.

    But arrests of politicians – that is what we need!

    I commented on this in a recent blog on the subjected and predicted this would happen. The cover up has to go on this only goes to show how deep the roots are spread. Theresa May has been got at. She knows someone close to the accusations or they have something on her.

    Did I mishear or did BBC radio 4 announce just this last week that Scotland’s Parliament have indicated that they are to set up an similar overarching enquiry into child abuse in Scotland which would have powers to compel witnesses to attend and give evidence on oath?

    always knew they would try to bury this. they are disgusting. does she really think she will have the support of the people now. this should scupper any chance of her becoming leader – or is that why she is doing it by protecting those in the present government.

      I’d really rather you just excerpted part of the article and sent people here – or in this case, as it was taken from the Exaro site, it might have been better for you to excerpt Exaro with a link to that site’s main article.
