Tom Watson’s letter to Theresa May (19.4.13)

I’ve been sent a copy of Tom Watson’s latest letter to Theresa May asking for the whereabouts of Geoffrey Dickens’ child abuse dossiers that were given to Leon Brittan in 1983/84. The Home Office have had almost 2 months to respond to Tom Watson’s original request, and have so far come up with nothing. Perhaps the government think people are going to forget about this…

The November 1983 dossier contained information about a connection between the Paedophile Information Exchange and Buckingham Palace staff. Operation Fernbridge are currently investigating the Elm Guest House paedophile ring which is thought to have involved members of Buckingham Palace staff.

The January 1984 dossier contained information about sexual assaults at a children’s home, and also named prominent paedophiles including a television executive. Could the children’s home have been Richmond Council’s Grafton Close home, which supplied boys as young as 10 to be abused by paedophiles at Elm Guest House?

  2. I apologise for remaining anonymous for the time being .I am the source of Tom Watson's PMQ on 24th Oct said:

    As I suggested on February 14th in a Comment on your piece on Righton/Napier
    Theresa May was never going to come up with this smoking gun presented to Leon Brittan
    This is why I advocated mass letters to John Whittingdale
    Although Brittan had been moved from Home Office conveniently not long after receiving this extraordinary dossier, his next PPS in his new Department was Whittingdale
    It’s defies logic for me that such a hot potato would not come up in conversation between the two
    As chair of the Culture Committee Whittingdale should be as pro active as he was in hounding the BBC over Mcalpine in finding out how much parliament was told and why the home office staff can’t find it

    Will Mr Watson follow up this letter?

      I’m sure he will. The letter is in itself a follow-up to the original written PMQ from 25th February

    Do read this, and also the second comment. John Whittingdale MP (since 1992), was a special advisor to Leon Brittan from 1985 to 1986. He is also the half-brother of Charles Napier, former treasurer of the Paedophile Information Exchange, who was arrested last year as part of Operation Fairbank – see and .

    It doesn’t fill me with confidence that Saville got away with so much for so long it’s time to get it all dealt with in a all honesty I doubt it all ended In the 80’s so for the sake of those poor kids we need to lance the boil once and for all no more old boy network cover ups
