Lift the one hundred year gagging order imposed in 2003 on the biggest UK police investigation into Paedophiles on the internet!

- Target: Tony Blair, Jack Straw and the British parliament.
2003, Tony Blair (then UK Prime Minister) and Jack Straw (then Home
Secretary) signed a one hundred year gagging order on information from
Operation Ore; the biggest UK police investigation ever undertaken into
online child abuse. The investigation was terminated and a gagging order
imposed on aspects of it’s reporting. Gagging Orders are enshrined into
British legislation and include a potential threat of imprisonment to
anybody who defies the order.
The British public need to know
the truth about the one-hundred year gagging order. Why was this order
signed by Tony Blair and Jack Straw? How did the gagging order protect
British society? How were the many children, discovered to be victims of
paedophile crimes, protected from further abuse? We call on Tony Blair
and Jack Straw to explain the grounds for this gagging order.
Parliament is afforded the power and authority to protect British
Society and represent us on the world stage. If the powers afforded are
utilized deceptively or in a manner that absolves certain sections of
society from scrutiny, it is an undermining of our democracy and
potentially harmful. The Chilcot inquiry is a recent example of how
powers can be utilized in a manner which misleads and deceives the
British public, the Hillsborough inquiry demonstrates the damaging
domino effects of cover-up. We need to preserve social justice and
ensure that parliamentary powers are utilized in a fair and consistent
manner. The use of this gagging order is suspicious, it was utilized to
prevent the release of information on crimes of the most abhorrent and
damaging kind, perpetrated against the most vulnerable members of our
society. The truth of this gagging order could liberate hundreds and
thousands of abused children and ensure we can afford them and others
better protections from paedophile, internet grooming and abuse. The
truth could ensure that the powers afforded to British Parliament are
utilized appropriately, transparently and in accordance with the
principles of justice and democratic process.
We call on Tony
Blair, Jack Straw and the current British parliament to lift this
gagging order and allow British Police to act on the information and
evidence they collated during Operation Ore. We call on Tony Blair to
lift this gagging order and allow for honest reporting to the British
Public as to why this order was imposed. We call on Tony Blair and Jack
Straw to afford British Society the truth about the grooming and abuse
of children unearthed in this investigation (no names required). We call
on Tony Blair, Jack Straw and the current British Parliament to
overturn this gagging order in the interests of safeguarding vulnerable
children from paedophile abuse. This gagging order suppresses the
natural process of justice and in the interests of justice, we request
that this gagging order is lifted.
