It seems that some of the hard of work by the alternative media is finally filtering down through major mainstream media news outlets.
No longer viewed as ‘conspiracy theory’, the serious issue of organised child abuse and paedophila is bringing these two normally segregated branches of media together. If any single issue can genuinely benefit from this kind of mutual media support, it’s this one.
Here’s how it happened… We highlighted two weeks ago how London’s Daily Express ran with a story two weeks ago by former child actor Ben Fellows, a story which was first published here on 21st Century Wire.
Even more encouraging this week, has been the mainstream media’s increased interest into the research and past statements of independent activists like David Icke, himself a former BBC colleague of the prolific criminal child abuser Sir Jimmy Savile. Express writer Sonia Poulton explains in her excellent piece on published on Oct 28th, how Icke’s warnings went unheeded:
“For many it reeks of an establishment cover-up, though for years detractors referred to it as “conspiracy theory”. Savile’s BBC colleague David Icke, who went from respected broadcaster to laughing stock, was at the forefront of such claims in the Nineties when he named Savile and others as paedophiles. Icke claimed Savile supplied children from Jersey’s infamous Haut de la Garenne care home to a senior British MP. Savile denied knowing the home, the scene of a police investigation in 2008 that uncovered widespread child abuse. He lied. There is pictorial evidence of him there.”What Poulton has rightly pointed out here, is that David Icke was absolutely right about Jimmy Savile all those years ago – and like so many other eyewitness testimonies and police statements made by victims, it was ignored by authorities and establishment media.
The Express also goes here on to support the alternative media’s efforts to get to the bottom of lies and abuse by those in positions of power, in politics, in the police and in entertainment. Their article also condemns the recent threats issued to this website by the top civil service body in the country, the Cabinet Office, over allegations made by Ben Fellows which named a high-ranking member of the current, as well as past governments. Writer Sonia Poulton explains:
“The Government must immediately announce an independent inquiry. It must be public and transparent and it must leave no stone unturned. The credibility of Parliament is at an all-time low and serious questions must be answered.Why did Ken Clarke, as justice minister, halve sentences of paedophiles last year in a controversial announcement? Why did the Cabinet Office issue threatening letters last week to internet bloggers warning that they must not repeat allegations of a child actor claiming to have been touched by a member of the Coalition?”Good questions. But not questions the state or the BBC are rushing to answer, despite the public confidence which is clearly at stake.
No matter how sincere officials appear to be when addressing this issue, the public are left with the impression that public bodies are simply dragging their heals on the issue. It’s this type of institutional mothballing which has allowed the problem to fester unchecked.
The public should feel a little more encouraged knowing that even the corporate mainstream media is beginning to take a strong interest, and in the case of the Express – signs of an unwavering stance regarding the eradication of the debilitating social and institutional disease of pedophilia from the nation’s public institutions. We applaud them for their efforts.
This issue, more than any other, has galvanised the public interest – and for good reason. It’s a social scandal that’s not just limited to the BBC, or even Downing Street. It’s a nationwide system of abuse, and ‘farming’ of children, enabled by the use of public money, and carried out through social services via childcare homes across the UK.
The reality is that child trafficking is a business, built on the back of a very lucrative ‘childcare’ housing industry. In fact, child homes are so lucrative, that a number of major banks are now acquiring them as profitable assets.
The problem isn’t just confined to Great Britain. This is also an international problem which is taking place not only throughout Europe, but in North America and elsewhere. But this doesn’t mean that Britain should not take the lead in cleaning up its act. Leaders should be warned that failing to do so could eventually result in ridicule on the international stage similar to that experienced by the Vatican. The issue could become fundamental to future diplomatic efforts, and easily be viewed as a national security issue, particularly if blackmail is involved at a government level.
The difference between an isolated incident of child abuse, and systematic institutional child sex crimes, is that when it’s covered-up through public institutional and government bodies, it’s not only a crime against children, it then falls under the category of crime against humanity. Such systematic abuse, carried out over generations and covered-up again and again – is worthy of an international trial in the Hague ala Nuremberg.
Someone needs to take the lead, and I think we know by now that it’s not going to be the BBC who is claiming to ‘investigate itself’ in the face of a pathetic cover-up. The broadcaster is still struggling to find its backbone. Only this week, it seems that the BBC bottled yet another Newsnight investigation, one that would have named a major political figure. Another paedophile allowed to walk free.
Next in the queue is the Government itself, who to date, hasn’t taken the bull by the horns yet. After that, there’s the police. If neither of these public bodies can effectively expose, and then seek to correct, the systemic problem of embedded paedophiles working in our public institutions, then who left to remedy the problem? That’s a disfunctional society, and one which even risks collapse, in order to hide away its sins. It makes you wonder if they are really serious about tacking this at source, or worse – that these same institutions might actually be hampering the overall effort.
Now that’s a disturbing thought. …. Read the Express article below, which delivers a bold, but fair analysis of the problem we currently face as a society today…
‘SEX ABUSE IS GUILTY SECRET’By Sonia Poulton
IN the weeks that have followed Jimmy Savile being revealed as a paedophile his carefully crafted charitable reputation has been obliterated. The national treasure decorated by the Queen and given keys to hospitals has been laid bare and described by one investigating officer as “the most prolific serial sex abuser in history”.Increasingly, though, rather than being the solitary pervert operating with impunity, Savile may be the tip of a large iceberg.
As more victims reveal abuse at the hands of Savile, or his extensive circle of friends, it appears the silence that surrounded him may say less about his celebrity status and more about whom he may have implicated had his crimes been exposed. Certainly we know that Savile was subject to at least five police probes over five decades. All were quashed. Why? We have yet to be told.
For many it reeks of an establishment cover-up, though for years detractors referred to it as “conspiracy theory”.
Savile’s BBC colleague David Icke, who went from respected broadcaster to laughing stock, was at the forefront of such claims in the Nineties when he named Savile and others as paedophiles. Icke claimed Savile supplied children from Jersey’s infamous Haut de la Garenne care home to a senior British MP. Savile denied knowing the home, the scene of a police investigation in 2008 that uncovered widespread child abuse. He lied. There is pictorial evidence of him there. Last week, during Prime Minister’s Questions, Labour MP Tom Watson raised the issue of a paedophile ring in Parliament and alluded to a former PM. David Cameron, all perplexed, said he would look into it. Minutes after PMQs, Tory MP Rob Wilson was on Sky News appearing to laugh off Watson’s claims.
This cannot go on. It was these sorts of hasty dismissals that helped Savile get away with it. People laughed it off and claimed “nutters” were saying it. Well I can tell Mr Cameron that this claim is not sensational, anything but. In fact Tom Watson has barely scratched the surface. I have compiled a list of 132 utterly shameless establishment child abusers. These include MPs, lords and local councillors. A similar list for members of Her Majesty’s Constabulary exists. I don’t believe these lists are complete. This is not conjecture or media gossip but people, primarily men, who have been prosecuted for child sex offences throughout the UK. Many of these abusers still represent constituents and are “serving the public”. At the very least we should know who they are, where they are and if their public decisions are influenced by the greater good or their own twisted perversions. As a journalist, and in light of the Savile revelations, people have contacted me desperate to share their abuse stories. Some accuse powerful members of the establishment. Several household-name MPs are said to have committed acts of degradation against children as young as six.
Yes, some of these callers may be jumping on the bandwagon but not many are, as independent corroboration of their stories has already confirmed.
So let’s not be under any illusion that this is only about Savile. I fear it is far from it.
The Government must immediately announce an independent inquiry. It must be public and transparent and it must leave no stone unturned. The credibility of Parliament is at an all-time low and serious questions must be answered.Why did Ken Clarke, as justice minister, halve sentences of paedophiles last year in a controversial announcement?
Why did the Cabinet Office issue threatening letters last week to internet bloggers warning that they must not repeat allegations of a child actor claiming to have been touched by a member of the Coalition?
Then there is the question that overshadows the whole Savile inquiry: why was he allowed to become so close to royalty and government? Surely it is the job of the security services to investigate the lifestyle of those who have access to our figureheads?
Yes, this is a dark time in our nation’s history but we must face it head on and keep going until we know the full, unexpurgated truth, no matter how unedifying future revelations may be. Judging by some of the testimonies I have heard it is likely to be very shocking indeed. There is no alternative. The victims need the truth to be told, no matter how powerful or connected their abusers may prove to be.
