VICE RING AT THE PALACE, SAYS MP (Daily Mail, 25th November 1983)

A dossier which claims that a homosexual vice ring is operating inside Buckingham Palace has been handed to the Home Secretary, Mr Leon Brittan.
The allegations, compiled by Conservative MP Mr Geoffrey Dickens, also claim that a top-level civil servant kept his job after he was found with 57 indecent photographs of children.
Mr Dickens, MP for Littleborough and Saddleworth, said yesterday that the Home Secretary had promised to investigate the allegations against ten men who, he claims, are active paedophiles—men interested in sex with children.
Mr Dickens said there was evidence that young male staff who entered the palace as footmen, servants and cooks were being dragged into a ‘web of vice’, where wealthy old men paid for their favours and they were passed around between clients.
He drew attention to the case of a 16-year-old boy who was given a kitchen job at the palace after leaving catering college.
After two years, he was recommended for a new job, as footman to a senior British diplomat, known to be a member of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange, the group that wants to legalise sex between children and adults.
They boy later left this post and, according to Mr Dickens, became the ‘plaything’ for millionaires in America.
