Child sex abuse conspiracy claims rattle Britainís political elite

That inquiry ... will look at organisations including the BBC, the health service, religious authorities and political parties.

The unmasking of late BBC television presenter Jimmy Savile as one of Britain's most prolific sex offenders has forced a wider questioning about how paedophiles in positions of power could sow such damage while evading detection for so long.

Once feted as a national treasure, Savile is now known to have used his fame to get unsupervised access to his victims, raping and abusing girls, boys, men, women and even dead bodies.

Veteran entertainer Rolf Harris, a household name in his native Australia and adopted home ritain, was jailed for almost six years last Friday on 12 counts of assaulting four girls, some as young as seven or eight, between 1968 and 1986.

This was as predictable as night follows day. During the first debates on whether we should accept same sex marriage, there were people who said’ “ONCE YOU OPEN UP THIS “PANDORA’S BOX”, NO ONE KNOWS WHERE IT WILL LEAD TO”. And the PRO-SAME SEX marriage crowd said, “NO, ONCE THEY HAVE SAME SEX MARRIAGE, THAT IS ALL THEY WANT”. In fact, Justice of the Supreme Court said, “ONCE YOU DEMEAN THE WORD “MARRIAGE”, DIFFERENT PEOPLE WILL DECIDE WHAT IT MEANS”. Now, to some people, “MARRIAGE” means being married to multiple partners. To others, “MARRIAGE” means being married to animals. And to others, MARRIAGE” means being married to a child, or many children. And, eventually, all a person needs is to find a “CONSENTING” judge to rule in their favor, and it becomes a “LAW”.

It’s worse in Hollywood than most can imagine. Roman Polanski is not even the tip of the Iceberg.

Yep. I would not doubt that only child stars who put out get top billings.

"has forced a wider questioning about how paedophiles in positions of power could sow such damage while evading detection for so long."

Um, just like Hollywood, EVERYONE at the Beeb knew EXACTLY what Savile was doing.

For decades they held their tongues. Until Savile was dead and couldn't blackmail them. Probably because they were doing the same damn thing. On the taxpayer's dime no less.

And yeah, Corey Feldman SHOULD name names.

I'd LOVE to see some Hollywood heavyweights sweat.

And then do serious jail time.

No, not in some country club jail.

In Federal "pound me in the ass" prison.

The revelations in the recently-released Mitrokhin spy archives has a LOT to do with this.

This story about the British pedo ring dates all the way back to the early 60s or before, when the sodomy laws were still on the books there.

Pedophilia has been with us since the beginning of time. But it was never accepted practice. Once we accepted the practice of sodomy, everything else became acceptable. Who are you or any one else to say what is good and what is bad? This is why more and more, pedophilia is becoming more and more acceptable.
