So the wide-awake and ever vigilant British population appears to have got exactly what it wanted, with it’s interweb petitions and relentless pressure brought about by countless millions of furious key presses and #hashtag activism on social media.
“Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
It has ‘forced’ the Home Secretary Teresa May ,and the Conservative Government to announce a wide-ranging enquiry, into how allegations of child abuse by politicians and other powerful institutions, like the NHS, the BBC and the Church during the 1970s, 1980s and the 1990s were handled.
Retired Judge Baroness Butler-Sloss, has been appointed to head this enquiry, as the incumbent guests at Downing Street have told you that Baroness Butler-Sloss “commands widespread respect and confidence”.
Phew! I was worried then for a while who was going to be in charge.
Putting aside the fact that her late brother Sir Michael Havers was Attorney General during the 1980s, and was suspected as being among those who made the Dossier presented to Home Secretary Sir Leon Brittan, by Geoffrey Dickens MP, ‘disappear’.
Butler-Sloss has assured the BBC she was unaware of her brother’s link to the controversy, and said she will not resign, despite increasing objections to her appointment.
“I know absolutely nothing about it.”
“If people think I am not suitable, then that’s up to them.”
(She says it like you actually have a choice)
The same Baroness Butler-Sloss that was forced to make a public apology to the House of Lords, on Febuary 28, 2013, for wrongly claiming Fathers4Justice made death threats against her.
The same Baroness Butler-Sloss that, until June 2007, chaired the inquests into the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales, and Dodi Fayed.
She stood down from that date, the task being completed by Lord Justice Scott Baker.
No satisfactory explanation was ever given, for her stepping down, although it remains an open question, as to whether it was Mohammed Al-Fayed’s Judicial Review, on the grounds that the inquest should not be conducted without a jury was responsible.
A jury, made up of members of the public could have stood a very good chance of finding that the deaths were not an ‘accident’, but that is pure speculation and of course should not be seriously considered as a valid reason for doing so.
What were you thinking?
Baroness Butler-Sloss was also responsible for granting life-long anonymity to John Venables and Robert Thompson, the brutal killers of Liverpool toddler James Bulger, upon their release in 2001.
So a perfect solution then, and one that will undoubtably inspire confidence among the majority of Tabloid Reading, MSM news viewing and clearly brain dead Social Media using members of the British public.
Pay no attention to the dissenting voices heard among some MPs and the Alternative Media, who can clearly identify yet another cover-up to add to the already long list of cover-ups and suppression of the truth.
If I was a cynical type, I could think that there were certain parties on Social Media, who’s sole intention was to force the Government to announce this enquiry, and were somehow complicit, and had full knowledge of an enquiry of this type having the obvious need and the power to bury the evidence.
