Child Abuse in our Society. The COVER UP continues.

Hyper Smash

Given my musings of yesterday on the BBC Child abuse allegations, my blog attempt at what I passingly contrived to be SATIRE, I feel a little compelled to pen something of a less humorous note on the whole debacle.

I don’t know what really happened at Haut de la Garenne Children’s home in Jersey; I wasn’t there.

I’m equally ignorant of the full facts relating to the allegations surrounding in Bryn Estyn in Wales, for the same reason.

Likewise, the countless OTHER Children’s homes in the UK which are said to have been the location of horrific sexual, physical and mental abuse.

I have no idea if the allegations surrounding an inordinate number of Senior Politicians and Lords of ALL parties, (most of which have been circulating on the Internet for YEARS), are true, either.

All I DO know, for certain, is that in every single case; in every single ‘investigation’, ‘review’ or’ ‘inquiry’, the full and true facts are invariably clouded in obfuscation and subterfuge.

Seemingly, deliberately so.

Documents shredded, photographs destroyed.

Accusers bullied, ignored or ridiculed.

Senior Politicians and Establishment figures implicated.

Police collusion with alleged abusers.

Sometime the Police, THEMSELVES, the alleged abusers.

Today, on the day that Conservative Party member David Mellor declared on National Television that whistle blowing Child abuse victim Steven Messham is a “WEIRDO”; ( a tad rich coming from a philandering foot-fetishist who copulated with a kiss-and-tell soft-porn actress whilst wearing a full Chelsea football strip, but I digress); in a day dominated with headlines relating to BBC failings and resignations, you could be forgiven for missing a story in the INDEPENDENT on Sunday Newspaper, relating to an astonishing COVER-UP.

Entitled ‘The JILLINGS Report: How the truth about North Wales child abuse scandal was suppressed’, this in-depth and revealing report detailed how the systematic abuse of young children was effectively OBSCURED by the Authorities for years.

It details the withholding of boxes and boxes of key evidence and information from the eventual Waterhouse enquiry; the ordering of the DESTRUCTION of ALL copies of the original investigation and reports;  the non-co-operation of Senior Police in granting access to information databases. 

More perturbing, the investigation unearthed the obscuring of ANOTHER, unpublished, internal Council report that suggested:

"There were numerous claims and suggestions that senior public figures including the police and political figures might have been involved in the abuse of young people.

It would be a huge mistake to think that the North Wales CHILD abuse travesty is unique. 

JERSEY has seen pretty much the same thing. Widespread allegations of abuse, committed by senior public and Establishment figures, all obscured or obliterated entirely in whitewashes, masquerading as reports or enquiries.

It remains to be seen whether or not David Cameron continues with his plans to reopen investigations into the North Wales and other, child abuse scandals. 

He originally professed his intention to do so after the revelations of Steven Messham, a former child abuse victim from Bryn Estyn, which were subsequently made to BBC’s ‘NEWSNIGHT’, and which highlighted his apparent claim that he was abused by a senior figure in the Conservative Party during the Premiership of Margaret Thatcher.

It may well be that Mr. Messham was genuinely confused or mistaken when he was alleged to have named Lord McAlpine as one of his abusers. 

It may also very well be, (as he himself allegedly purports), that it was the POLICE who identified McAlpine to him in photographs; images depicting the sexual abuse of young children.  

Given that those photographs are now reported to have been DESTROYED, no-one is really in a position to verify or negate the information.

At the risk of sounding superfluous, child abuse is the vilest, most despicable, depraved and heinous crime that Man can commit; the defiling and degrading of the truly innocent of our species.

We can only hope and maybe PRAY that those who perpetuate and propagate such atrocities, will one day be met with the Justice they deserve.

The SECOND, vilest crime, in MY opinion is the COVERING UP of this evil. 

If Cameron now elects NOT to pursue the investigations, the derogation and CHARACTER assassination made today by  Mellor and some sections of the PRESS, of Mr. Messham, will unequivocally contribute to that ongoing whitewash and cover-up.

We cannot be responsible for the repellent acts of those that abuse children.

But we CAN make the difference in striving to ensure that their actions do not go unpunished.
