The Labour Party’s Jack Straw has been linked to the trial of the leader of the Liberal Party, Jeremy Thorpe, who was accused of trying to murder ‘his boyfriend’.
In 2002, a tape-recording surfaced of Harold Wilson discussing the scandal and saying:
Jack Straw had been a school prefect at his boarding school called Brentwood (above).
At Brentwood, a fifteen years old boy was found dead in his study, gassed.
According to Jack straw: “He believed that he was gay – ‘queer’ in the brutal parlance of the time. He could not discuss this with his parents or anyone at the school…
“The year before, two boys had been expelled for homosexual activities…”
Peter Bessel, a former Liberal MP, claimed to have been present while the murder plot was discussed.
The trial judge, Mr Justice Cantley, in summing up the case, described Norman Scott as ‘a crook, an accomplished liar… a fraud’.
Thorpe’s first wife Caroline was killed in 1970 in a car crash with a lorry.
