Lambeth Child Abuse and the Death of Bulic Forsythe
January 11, 2015 3:00 AM   Subscribe

Express: "Labour MP John Mann fears the deaths of the two council workers could be linked to a Westminster-based paedophile gang involving highly-influential politicians. One of the men, social services manager Bulic Forsythe, was killed three days after telling a colleague he planned to “spill the beans” about the abuse scandal. (correct) Mr Mann did not name the second whistleblower but he is former caretaker who claimed he had taped evidence of depraved parties." Mirror: "A council official and a caretaker may have been killed to stop them exposing a Westminster paedophile ring, Labour’s John Mann said. The shocking allegation comes as abuse survivors expect Home Secretary Theresa May to axe a panel of experts investigating claims of historical sex attacks by powerful figures. They fear the Government does not “want to get at the truth” of the accusations, according to Mr Mann’s party colleague, Simon Danczuk." Morning Star: "The Anglican Baroness Butler-Sloss, appointed by the Home Secretary to lead the over-arching inquiry into child protection which broadened the scope of the inquiry away from Parliament, resigned after admitting she covered up the sexual abuse of small boys by two Anglican priests in a previous inquiry. It has since also emerged that her brother, the former Attorney-General Michael Havers, limited the scope of an inquiry into paedophile abuse at the Kincora Children’s Home in Northern Ireland in the 1970s. Cabinet minutes from 1983 reveal that Havers ensured that MPs and other prominent public figures were protected by restricting the terms of reference of the inquiry."

Daily Mail: "There was an Establishment cover-up of horrific child abuse because powerful figures looked after themselves, former judge Lady Butler-Sloss warned today.

Senior members of British society in the past did not think child abuse was as serious or important as protecting politicians and other members of the elite, she suggested."

HuffPo: "A notorious paedophile had a cache of documents that linked his abuse to establishment figures - but this was not acted on, a former police officer involved in his arrest has said.

Former detective Terry Shutt claims important material was discovered in the 1992 arrest of Peter Righton, a former consultant to the National Children's Bureau, but this was covered up."

Express: "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."

BeforeItsNews: "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."

Ben Fellows: "What was good about the article, I thought, was that The Times were going to be brave and publish the names of actual living breathing people, rather than dead people like Jimmy Savile or Wilfred Brambell. Famous and powerful people who could argue back, perhaps call me a liar or fantasist in an attempt to clear their name. I talked about *******(Name redacted) political lobbyist Ian Greer’s office. How he gave me alcohol in an attempt to get me drunk. I explained to Jack Malvern that there was even video evidence of the incident as we’d filmed it during our “cash for questions” sting operation for The Cook Report, we had a camera in a briefcase which captured the sordid event. I talked about a senior female BBC producer who likes to have sex with teenagers. Or I should say have sex with me when I was a teenager. I continued with a long list of names of extremely well known actors, casting directors, producers, directors, writers and executives who had all abused me or attempted to abuse me sexually while I was a child actor."

21stCenturyWire: "On Friday Oct 11th, former child actor and now investigative journalist, Ben Fellows, published his own sordid account of his personal experiences growing up in show business and working at the BBC. The following week, his story was picked-up by the London newspaper Daily Express on Oct 17th. What the public is not aware of however, is that the Murdoch-owned Times newspaper in London had also summoned Fellows to an interview regarding his story the following day on Thursday Oct 18th. Since the original story I wrote, a lot of readers, people and other members of the media have been asking me to name names, and actually accusing me of feeding the abuse system by not naming names in my initial story. So when the Times contacted me, it seemed like the ideal opportunity to names names”.

Express/Sonia Poulton: "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."

She certainly didn't admit any such thing.

There's clearly a huge issue here which needs addressing, but this post with links to such dodgy, libelous articles - not to mention the Express, David Icke and 21stCenturyWire (which has a front page currently dedicated to vaguely antisemitic claims about the Charlie Hebdo shootings being a false flag operation, and a long history of similarly deranged stuff) - really gives anyone inclined to dismiss the whole thing as nonsense a perfect excuse.
