Child sex abuse is by its nature a private act between two people-one who is not capable of giving consent.
The person who is abused is likely to be damaged for life by such an experience and could find it difficult to relate to other people. So prior to the Jimmy Savile expose hardly anybody believed them.
The perpetrator who would suffer huge damage to his or her reputation if found out will go to any length to cover their tracks -including, if the current Met Police criminal investigation , Operation Midland, is to be believed, murder.
Rack this up and say you wish to uncover acts more than 30 years ago- when mobile phones and the internet were science fiction- involving very, very powerful people in high places who can pull strings and you have made it doubly difficult.
That is why it is absurd for the BBC to put out a documentary claiming to reveal the truth about the Westminster paedophile ring when the story is only half complete, when the police haven’t finished their investigation, and nobody has tested the evidence.
The result was a documentary that probably left the public confused, the police visibly annoyed because it could have put off new people coming forward to help them complete their investigations and the survivors who were interviewed by the BBC worried they had been traduced.
