An open letter to David Cameron

Dear Mr. Cameron

On the very day, 24th October 2012, that Tom Watson asked you a PMQ re. the possibility of a link between a very large and highly organised paedophile ring and No 10, you made a number of quotes to the mainstream media.

You were in fact referring to the Savile/BBC/NHS scandal.

I made a note of some of those quotes :-

”The Government will do all it can do, other institutions must do what they can do, to make sure that we learn the lesson of this and it can NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN”

“Collusion should NEVER happen again ”

”The measure of how our society is, is how we treat its most vulnerable members”

There are no more vulnerable members of our society than children who have been taken in to care and then re-abused by the very people charged with the responsibility of caring for them and protecting them,and even worse then passing them on to be further abused by the very people who make the laws in this country and are expected to lead the way on the moral compass of that society.

I have no doubt that you have watched or been made aware of Channel 4′s Dispatches on 12th September and the allegations that arose from it regarding the role of senior politicians, the security services and the Crown Prosecution Service in covering up the horrendous abuse carried out by Cyril Smith over 5 decades.The overlap with Savile in terms of who knew about this abuse were laid bare.

I also have no doubt that you are aware that your colleagues in your party, Edwina Currie,Gyles Brandreth and Rod Richards have made very damning statements of how well known in Westminster circles it was that Peter Morrison was a dangerous paedophile, and yet his career was unaffected as he rose to be Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, Mrs. Thatcher’s PPS in 1990 and her campaign manager that same year despite this knowledge having been around for many years.

I also have no doubt that you are aware of the statement of Tim Fortescue,Edward Heath’s Chief Whip from 1970-73, made public on Michael Cockerell’s BBC Documentary in 1995 called “Westminster’s Secret Service “.
Talking about the role of the chief whip, Fortescue said ” For anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth ………….. it might be erm erm a scandal involving small boys ……….. we would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points ……. and if I mean, that sounds a pretty,pretty nasty reason, but it’s one of the reasons because if we could get a chap out of trouble then,he will do as we ask forever more.”

I don’t need to tell you of the revulsion I feel towards our political masters having worked with sexually abused children for over 30 years when I heard of how the Whips ran the Dirt Book system.

Your colleague, John Whittingdale, in his role as Chair of the Culture Committee,put himself forward as the moral voice of Parliament in the days following the exposure of Savile on national TV.
He lost no opportunity to appear on every news channel for many days to demand in effect the head of the Director General of the BBC.To date I have not heard you or Mr. Whittingdale demand such investigations in to your own institution despite the mountain of concern a small proportion of which I have referred to above.
Just on Savile alone without looking any further why was there no investigation along the lines of the many BBC inquiries in to why a British Prime Minister was so close to Savile that he allegedly attended 13 consecutive New Year’s Eve parties at Chequers and why the same Prime Minister allegedly persevered for many years in insisting that such an evil man long identified as having a deviant sexual history should get a knighthood,ignoring the advice of her closest advisers.
Why was the same man so welcome in Prince Charles’s properties despite the security services and similar vetting institutions having enough opportunity to tap in to the ” gossip” about Savile that was around for decades.

I would dearly like to go in to more detail but until the Metropolitan Police’s Operations Fernbridge and Fairbank are completed then for obvious reasons I can not.

In the aftermath of the Lord McAlpine affair I was extremely disappointed by the confusion you attempted to create by making accusations of gay witch-hunts. There is no connection whatsoever between being gay and being a paedophile.
This is about and only about people who abuse young children regardless of whether the abuser is heterosexual or gay.
There is no witch-hunt against gay people and it was most irresponsible for a Prime Minister to make such a statement when the abuse of our most vulnerable was the issue.

Now is the time for you to show the genuine commitment expected of a Prime Minister and do what you preached in those statements last October especially ” COLLUSION SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN ” and the demand that ALL institutions look inwards and examine their role in past collusion/cover up.

A starting point, and to give Parliament and Government any credibility in this heinous historical scandal, is for you to put all party political considerations aside and arrange an urgent meeting with Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband to draw up a blueprint as to how your own institution will be investigated along the lines of the way you and colleagues demanded that people be brought to account in the BBC or NHS for their failure to blow the whistle on Savile.

It would be better if you led such an exercise before it is forced upon you by public demand.
The latter will happen in time.

A starting point would be an immediate statement that there will be urgent cross-party talks to set up an independant body to examine who ordered these cover ups of people like Smith and Morrison, after ordering an immediate Police investigation by the National Crime Agency and ensuring that the latter body has sufficient resources to go wherever the evidence takes them and however long it takes. This must include the investigation of living politicians, police officers,civil servants,security services personnel etc.

Yours sincerely,
The source of Tom Watson’s PMQ

    Its still being covered up in Staffordshire. By the way, Tom Watson was at that 2002 Select Committee conference as well as Cameron, and Tom Watson has called me a pest and blocked me on Twitter for reminding him about it and asking him questions about it. http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&ved=0CDcQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fzoompad.blogspot.com%2F2011%2F07%2Fdavid-cameron-was-on-select-committee.html&ei=bhw4Ur7iGImn4gTn1YCgCA&usg=AFQjCNHp4A7s-LNqwTqs8g3ElBasbb5Rnw&sig2=sCBqVT7spTq8p68rOHaCDQ&bvm=bv.52164340,d.bGE

  3. With respect to Zoompad since October 2012 Tom Watson has developed an understanding of child sexual abuse which he couldn’t possibly have achieved as a non-professional beforehand
    In my experience Tom is 100% genuine in trying to achieve what we all want and has no interest in party politics on this issue
    Perhaps being aggressive/abusive to those on the right side of the coin is not the best way forward although I appreciate it is easy for me to say that as a non-victim

    So much cover-up by so many for so many years. I could add in the Islington scandal where 20 years on I still learn accounts of more horrors then went on – care leavers only now taking the risk of speaking out. The tide is most definitely turning. Survivors, care leavers and whistle-blowers are slowly gaining in confidence and the social media is playing a major role in providing them with a voice.

    There is enough evidence on this excellent and well researched website to fuel a dozen in-depth documentaries and many more mainstream media articles. Much of the hard work of investigation has been done so that these issues can be picked up and more pressure be placed on those who assisted in the cover ups – for whatever reason- to speak out and explain their position. There have been many academics who have written in support of paedophilia, many professionals who just did as they were told by senior managers and ignored allegations and evidence, many adults who witnessed the terrible abuses and crimes and did nothing and politicians who had knowledge of these crimes and did not speak out. There are also policy makers who are systematically destroying our current child protection system making it extremely difficult now for professionals such as police and social workers to effectively protect children. There are, however, some brave and fearless investigative journalists who continually try to bring these serious crimes to the public attention. We need them more than ever to get this information from the social media into the mainstream media.

    There are no longer any excuses. The truth is out there on this website. I hope this Letter to Cameron spreads like wildfire.

    At the end of the letter, ‘the source of Tom Watson’s PMQ’ says, “It would be better if you led such an exercise before it is forced upon you by public demand. The latter will happen in time.”

    Let’s get the ‘public demand’ rolling.

    I ask everyone to send a copy of this open letter to their MP with a covering, personal message.

    A draft email for anyone who prefers to ‘tinker around with words’ rather than start with the blank page:

    Send via this website: http://www.writetothem.com/

    Dear [my MP]

    I call your attention to an open letter which has been posted on an internet blog which seeks to expose child abuse – both historic and current.

    https://spotlightonabuse.wordpress.com/

    Whilst the letter is addressed to David Cameron (Prime Minister), I look to all Members of Parliament to put pressure on the Cabinet and those in governmental office to demand an exposition of all paedophiles – no matter of their standing in society or high office.

    I particularly ask you to investigate the truth in the statement that MI5 and MI6 are colluding in such activity in order to blackmail both foreign and UK ‘dignitaries’.

    As my MP, I trust you to represent me on this matter and assist in exposing this horrendous crime.

    Please keep me informed about any progress you make and any information you find out.

    Yours sincerely,

    [your name]

    Yes, well he knows now doesn’t he, so why has he blocked me for asking about that 2002 “police trawling” conference that he attended? Why isn’t he talking about that, now he knows?

    “I would dearly like to go in to more detail but until the Metropolitan Police’s Operations Fernbridge and Fairbank are completed then for obvious reasons I can not.”

    Yes Tom, we understand that, but there’s nothing stopping you talking about this: http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&ved=0CEAQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fzoompad.blogspot.com%2F2011%2F01%2Fcolin-tucker.html&ei=l7c4UvfuEMrZ4ATO84HwAw&usg=AFQjCNGVFK81g7J_wzcNVLJD3BFMztfDsw&sig2=fQH5t9kZhf06IE92BGqenA as well as the 2002 Government Select Committee conference, in fact, it is your duty to do so in the light of the dreadful events which are currently being headlined in the news, “lessons will be learned” ect

    1) It’s in the interests of political parties that their MPs have dirty secrets – the dirtier the secret the more they control him.

    2) For the senior police officer on a case involving one or more MPs (or VIPs in general) making powerful enemies is probably not going to be good for their career – so if they can possibly avoid it they don’t. The only exception is where there’s enough media spotlight for the “something must be done” effect to outweigh the usual cover-up.

    I will try posting it to my own MP again, but I don’t think he will do anything at all, as he’s already had loads of letters from me about the Pindown cover up.

  10. Thanks so much Murun for making this such a big success and for the huge effort you put in week after week
    I note that there is disquiet on the social media about the results being currently achieved by the Operation Pallial team compared with Operations Fernbridge/Fairbank
    We all know how difficult it is for victims to come forward
    In North Wales fortunately huge numbers have been brave enough to come forward making the Police’s job much more straightforward.Hence lots of arrests
    In Fernbridge/Fairbank we have an extremely committed Police team BUT even though they are convinced they know what went on victims have not come forward
    Without victims it is not possible to prosecute
    As Tom Watson’s source I have first hand knowledge of how frustrating this is as it happened with Peter Righton in the 1990’s
    It almost needs a Crimewatch appeal as victims will be believed now in a way they wouldn’t have been 20 years ago
    There is no conspiracy theory as some sites claim
    It is just fact that even decades later powerful abusers render their victims defenceless and frightened to speak

  11. Well the open letter worked well didn’t it.

    Only a leak of truly damaging material into the public domain and picked up by the mainstream media would cause the reaction needed.

  12. Reblogged this on Thinking Out Loud and commented:
    As far as I know nothing, not a thing, has happened. A handful of minor celebrities thrown to the wolves is about the best it amounts to. This leads some of us to wonder if they and the references to gay men were attempted diversions from parliamentarian paedophiles.

    It seems to be taking forever and you will make your own minds up at the end of the day but behind the scenes there is an awful lot happening and the Open Letter to which your last 2 comments refer is being addressed at cabinet minister level.
    No amount of comment from me will satisfy cynical or doubtful people until results are produced through prosecutions.
    Given the history of failure to investigate, collusion, corruption, incompetence, lack of trust over decades with survivors having little or no voice, it is hardly surprising that many people simply do not believe that the most powerful will be brought to justice.
    Several current Police investigations are attempting to put the situation right and the biggest problem at the moment is – for all the reasons of lack of faith in the system, fear, anxiety over being believed, fear of reliving the abuse all over again in court, not having told partners, fear of relationship breakdown – the very low numbers of survivors coming forward to make allegations against the most powerful abusers, given that it is likely that there are hundreds of adults out there who were abused by the very people the last two comments are referring to
