Category: Major Inquiry into child abuse
The UK’s police watchdog is investigating allegations that Scotland Yard has covered up child abuse by high profile politicians and police officers.
What remains constant over the centuries is a kind of droit de seigneur; the right of powerful people to sexually exploit vulnerable children from lower social classes.
Four new panel members, including the author of a report on sexual exploitation in Rotherham, have been appointed to the reformed independent inquiry into child abuse, the home secretary has announced.
People in Britain do not yet “appreciate the true scale” of child sexual exploitation that runs through society “like a stick of Blackpool rock”, Home Secretary Theresa May has warned.
