Moving to a different but very connected topic is the report relating to the paedophilia in the Government. It was reported a couple of days ago that a powerful paedophile ring stretching into Parliament and Number 10 existed and needed investigation. The whistleblower, Peter McKelvie stated,

Lord Brittan, a former Conservative Home Secretary has also been questioned by detectives investigating allegation of rape. The detectives investigating it are part of Scotland Yard’s Operation Fairbank inquiry team which was launched after Tom Watson MP made allegations of widespread child abuse in Parliament. Interestingly however, Lord Brittan was handed a document known as the “Dicken’s Dossier” when he was Home Secretary in 1980. This dossier constitutes one of 114 files which have gone missing.
