The Mirror ran a story in February which claimed that a former cabinet minister was “part of a VIP paedophile ring that was regularly handed boys by child rapist and killer Sidney Cooke for vile sex orgies.”
“A former detective who worked on the original investigation into Cooke told the Sunday Mirror that the minister was among those alleged to have been photographed in a 1986 police surveillance on premises where boys had been dropped off. Others allegedly included Jimmy Savile, MP Cyril Smith and top judges – though none of them were ever arrested.” Full article
A Daily Express article from 1989 corroborates these allegations, but also says other MPs (plural) were involved, not just Cyril Smith, and none of them were even questioned.
“They are said to be members of a massive underground paedophile network which stretches across Britain and into Europe…Detectives even heard allegations that a former Cabinet Minister and other MPs were involved in child-sex activities. None was questioned.”
