Child Abuse Police Investigate Alleged Visits By Thatcher Cabinet Minister Leon Brittan To Elm Guest House
Sunday 27 January 2013
‘Leon Brittan left British politics suddenly in 1989 to become a European Commissioner after receiving a Knighthood. He became Baron Brittan of Spennithorne in 2000.
As Home Secretary, with oversight of the police and the judiciary, he took a slow, ‘step by step’ approach to requests that the then legal organisation, The Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), should be outlawed. He was presented with lists of known perpetrators and members of PIE. It is unclear at this stage what action, if any, he took.’
Elm House Paedophiles … government in fear of evidence closer to home about Rocks Lane parties
‘Although most people have now forgotten the event, two and a half years ago David Cameron – unable to find anyone who’d take the job as Trade Minister – appointed Leon Brittan as a consultant to do the job ‘full time for £500 a day’ – or roughly £170,000 per annum. The former Thatcher aide worked in the role from September 2010 until February 2011, taking time off from his Vice-Chairmanship of UBS investment bank to do it.
This is not, however, the only direct link Mr Brittan has with the Coalition. He was also Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg’s first political boss in Europe, and on LBC recently David Mellor mentioned that Brittan had promoted Clegg: “He [Clegg] got the job because Clegg’s father was a very close friend of Leon Brittan” said the former toe-sucking Conservative Minister. It is not clear whether Clegg promoted Brittan’s cause for the 2010-11 consultancy job, but the LibDem leader admits himself that Mr Brittan first introduced him to Paddy Ashdown.’
MP Cyril Smith named in Elm Guest House child abuse case
‘Police are investigating claims that Sir Cyril Smith sexually abused young boys at a guest house allegedly used by a powerful paedophile network whose members are said to have included former leading Conservative politicians.
Detectives are looking at authoritative accounts that the late Liberal Democrat MP for Rochdale visited the Elm Guest House, south-west London, in the 1980s. Smith has been credibly identified by two sources as a frequent visitor to the bed and breakfast in Rocks Lane, Barnes, where it is alleged children were trafficked and abused.’
