    Default Alleged cover up of Cyril Smith's sexual abuse activities in 1970s

    Allegations are surfacing that there was a cover up from top British political circles of Cyril Smith's sex abuse activities

    Any decision to prosecute Cyril Smith over allegations of homosexual child abuse could have proved just as devastating to Labour as to the Liberals. The question of who ran the country — so finely balanced because of the lack of a large majority — was at stake.

    Throughout these years, Smith, popular throughout the land on account of his bluff Northern manner, was even touted as a government minister, and had served as his party’s chief whip.
    And many of those involved in the case — police, victims, lawyers — believe the orders not to press charges came from the top, with Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan, Labour Prime Ministers during different parts of the police probe, being involved in signing off decisions not to press ahead with charges so as not to upset their Liberal allies.

    Why did police officers and prosecutors not realise that it was their duty to disobey illegal orders? The government perverted the course of justice.

    Interesting to see Clegg speaking all positive about him, at the time of his death. Did he know anything years ago?

    The Lib Dems are totally compromised over this - they must have known what was going on
    More reason for them to be wiped in the next election

    Clegg and the "Liberals" are too busy pontificating on the morality of the "bigots" who are against gay marriage
    to pay attention to their own immoral members history of sodomizing little boys

    Tragic if true. I note the readers comments at the end of the article are very dismissive of the entire story. For obvious reasons I'm always wary of claims of wrong doing being made against people who have passed. The truth is elusive is these type of situations.

    The Liberals always were two-faced, self-righteous hypocrites - or at least the English ones were (although I have always had a sneaking regard for the great Welsh Liberal David Lloyd George.

    There is such denial about sex abuse because at heart most people think people are essentially good and have no real concept of the reality of evil. When you consider how adept a serial child sexual abuser is at deceiving people and how cunning they are behind the mask of the caring respectable pillar of the community you are in danger of losing your faith in humanity. So most people want to pretend evil isn't happening and refuse to confront it and look at it for what it is. It's so much easier to pretend it doesn't exist.
    The psychopaths who abuse children or embezzle or commit atrocities and so on know this and learn how to manipulate people's kindness and good nature.
