The Politics of Entrapment I

 “He said there were very highly placed people there. He talked about judges and politicians who were abusing little boys.”

Finally, what many writers and researchers have been saying for decades has broken into the mainstream media. The long-standing rumours and persistent allegations regarding a paedophile ring working out of Westminster which involved a number of high profile Members of the British Parliament is now in the public consciousness – yet another “conspiracy theory” that was fact.

Those under the shadow of perpetrating abuse included a former Home Secretary and Vice-President of the European Commission Lord Leon Brittan who died of cancer shortly after the allegation in January 2015. In July of the same year, Labour MP Simon Danczuk told Parliament that Lord Brittan had been sent a dossier of names and allegations concerning organised paedophilia between 1983 and 1985. He told fellow MPs that the late Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens during this period had written to then Home Secretary Lord Brittan about these high profile child abusers “operating and networking within and around Westminster” and delivered a dossier of names. [1] A copy of the file was also sent to Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) top prosecutor Thomas Hetherington. Surprise, surprise….The dossier was then conveniently “lost” by officials and Brittan (not so surprisingly) couldn’t recall any further details about it.


“Asked if he thought there had been a ‘political cover-up’ in the 1980s, he replied: ‘I think there may well have been. But it was almost unconscious. It was the thing that people did at that time.”

– Lord Tebbit, former Conservative cabinet minister


Brittan himself had long been associated with child abuse. After his death more allegations surfaced culminating in a search of his property in London and Yorkshire by the metropolitan police’s Operation Midland, a unit set up to investigate the Westminster ring. Brittan had long been accused of abusing a boy at Elm Guest House in the mid-eighties and multiple acts of child rape in 1986 after an alleged attendance of a rent boy orgy. [2] The Independent on Sunday investigations revealed that as Brittan, Cyril Smith and other high profile MPs and well-known public figures were about to be arrested the investigation was shut down with no explanations. [3]

Of course, this would not be the first or last time.

Danczuk had been calling for an inquiry into an organised child rape network since the late eighties. His dogged research had been based on his recently published book Smile for the Camera: The double life of Cyril Smith detailing the nature of a 40-year cover-up of the paedophile offences committed by Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith and which personifies just how easy it has been for child abusers to milk the system.

A report from The Telegraph offers testimony of one David Tombs, who ran Hereford and Worcester social services for over 20 years. The official warned the Department of Health from information he obtained from liaison with police investigations that a paedophile ring was in operation. But what was more disturbing was the inference that it was common knowledge and endemic: “When he alerted Department of Health representatives, he was told by civil servants that he was ‘probably wasting [his] time’ because there were ‘too many of them over there’. Asked what he thought was meant by the word ‘them’, Mr Tombs said ‘those within Parliament and government in Whitehall”. [4]

The up shot of these inquiries have revealed that the Thatcher government knew about the abuse but decided to turn a blind eye in order to prevent destabilising the Establishment structure. [5] That was the more palatable reason for people such as Lord Tebbit who excused cover ups as somehow “what people did”, presumably for the good of the realm. Leaving such nonsense aside, what this writer and so many others were saying more than ten years previously – namely, that paedophilia was encouraged in order to be used as a blackmailing tool – was also revealed by a whistleblower in the MSM by the tabloid newspaper the Daily Express. [6] The details are accurate and fit the pieces of past domestic political and geostrategy perfectly. They confirmed that the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) a British pro-paedophile activist group founded in October 1974 and officially disbanded in 1984, was infiltrated as an under cover operation and clearing house for such activities and represented what is after all, standard practice within military-intelligence apparatus – from MI6, CIA to MOSSAD. Thatcher was nothing if not thorough. It was clear that she knew all about the paedophilia Establishment and sought to protect it for the same dubious reasons. Indeed, according to a newly revealed secret file on senior diplomat Sir Peter Hayman who died in 1992, The Independent, reported “… she told officials not to publicly name a senior diplomat connected to a paedophile scandal despite being fully briefed on allegations made against him.” He was also one of many that Geoffrey dickens named on the dossier as a paedophile. Despite an investigation, he was not prosecuted. [7]

As a result of metropolitan police complicity in the cover up of MPs child abusing activities, as of writing Scotland Yard is currently under investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and said it is investigating allegations of ‘historic, high level corruption of the most serious nature’ within the Metropolitan Police force.” There are over 14 referrals of alleged corruption connected to the paedophile ring and sexual abuse claims from the 1970s to the 2005, all of which the IPCC is tasked with investigating. The complete list reported by the is lncuded here:

    • An allegation of a potential cover up around failures to properly investigate child sex abuse offences in south London and further information about criminal allegations against a politician being dropped;
    • An allegation that an investigation involving a proactive operation targeting young men in Dolphin Square was stopped because officers were too near prominent people;
    • An allegation that a document was found at an address of a paedophile that originated from the Houses of Parliament listing a number of highly prominent individuals (MPs and senior police officers) as being involved in a paedophile ring and no further action was taken;
    • An allegation that an account provided by an abuse victim had been altered to omit the name of a senior politician;
    • An allegation that an investigation into a paedophile ring, in which a number of people were convicted, did not take action in relation to other more prominent individuals;
    • Allegations that a politician had spoken with a senior Met Police officer and demanded no action was taken regarding a paedophile ring and boys being procured and supplied to prominent persons in Westminster in the 1970s;
    • An allegation that in the late 1970s a surveillance operation that gathered intelligence on a politician being involved in paedophile activities was closed down by a senior Met Police officer;
    • An allegation that a dossier of allegations against senior figures and politicians involved in child abuse were taken by Special Branch officers;
    • Allegations that a surveillance operation of a child abuse ring was subsequently shut down due to high profile people being involved;
    • Allegations of child sex abuse against a senior politician and a subsequent cover-up of his crimes;
    • Allegations that during a sexual abuse investigation a senior officer instructed the investigation be halted and that that order had come from ‘up high’ in the Met;
    • An allegation of a conspiracy within the Met to prevent the prosecution of a politician suspected of offences;
    • Allegations against a former senior Met Police officer regarding child sex abuse and that further members of the establishment including judges were involved. It is claimed that no further action was taken;
    • An allegation that police officers sexually abused a boy and carried out surveillance on him. There are further allegations of financial corruption in a London borough police force. [8]

Let’s not forget that the presence of a child rape network has always been lurking over successive governements and in my view, an inherent consequence of Statism and all that goes with it. The hue and cry of child pornography became focused in the now infamous allegations of paedophiles within Tony Blair’s New Labour party in 2003. This slipped into internet legend under the snappy title of: Blair’s Protection of Elite Paedophile Rings Spells the End for His Career. (Even at this juncture, the author had succumbed to a heavy dose of wishful thinking by claiming that this would see to the downfall of Mr. Blair and his government. Prime Ministers do not fall anymore, unless deemed expedient that they do so). The article, written by British freelance journalist Michael James for the Scottish Herald, suggested that members of Tony Blair’s inner government were being investigated over child pornography charges and that this information was being used by elements within the US administration to blackmail the British Government into supporting the war on Iraq.


 “… quite extraordinary” and … “a shocking reflection on Parliament” that one year on from allegations and revelations of establishment cover-ups that the public had seen “not one establishment perpetrator brought to justice”.

– John Mann Labour MP commenting on the “Westminster cover up at the highest level”


Further information included speculation concerning Dunblane murderer and suspected paedophile, Thomas Hamilton. Hamilton happened to have connections to the former Secretary General of NATO, Lord George Robertson, also accused of paedophilia, which he strenuously denied, threatening to sue the newspaper when they published similar reports. There are also those who believed this was merely an opportunistic example of a smear campaign concocted by UK intelligence. After all, although paedophilia / child rape clearly exists within the UK Establishment there are equal reasons to remain cautious in light of the blackmail tactic to enforce agendas and political strategies.

_38498291_computer_keys150At the same time, it is disturbing that the disasterous task force Operation Ore, set up to fully investigate allegations of paedophilia and organised child abuse with the authority to investigate the Dunblane connections, simply fizzled out like so many investigations centered around accusations of high level abuse. Not before accusations of incompetence and corruption had surfaced along with innocent individuals imprisoned and no satisfactory answers as to why. Equally, based on the global record and historical whitewashes of the State regarding such issues, it is only natural that we become highly suspicious of the standard: “lack of evidence” in some cases. Expect the same thing to happen with the present Westminster inquiry, Operation Midland and Operation Yew tree, but not before many lower profile figures have been sacrificed for predatory sexual behaviour but not necessarily child abuse and/or paedophilia. In this light, the BBC debacle on Sir Jimmy Savile was very carefully managed so that reporting and investigations stayed firmly within a designated perimeter of exploration. Mainstream media discussion on his links to politicians, Royalty and other VIP members of the Establishment have been largely silent.

Since we understand that child abuse is a way of life in much of the Establishment circles, it is not too hard to see how important a part technology plays in organised networks.

On the subject of internet child pornography, a report in 2006 found that more than half of the 184 Interpol countries had no laws addressing child pornography and where only Australia, Belgium, France, South Africa and the United States had laws which produced what has been called a significant “impact” on the crime. Improvements have been made several years later but we could be forgiven for thinking that the will to prosecute is lacking on the one hand and ridiculously zealous on the other. [9]

It goes without saying that there are certainly paedophiles and molesters for whom the internet is an ideal place to buy, collect and view images of children being sexually abused. We cannot expect such a wonderful tool of exchange to be used exclusively for the greater good, especially with technological horizons pushing the envelope of innovation. It would be foolish to think that sexual predators would not take full advantage of the anonymous and secret opportunities that this global networking medium provides. The process of ponerisation has no defined limits. It touches all societal domains and becomes strategically contoured towards specific goals. Child pornography is no different and has become a minefield of mixed messages, corruption and incompetence, though undoubtedly driven, in part, by good intentions and tireless efforts to bring those targeting children to justice.

But as is ever the case, judging on past and present performances of law enforcement operations regarding child pornography, there is cause for extreme concern on a number of levels which may not be immediately apparent.
