Explosive Newsnight in Pipeline

If the lawyers don’t spike it, tonight’s Newsnight could be pretty spectacularly explosive. Bureau of Investigative Journalism hack Iain Overton has been working on a major story that is currently being legalled.

Hopefully George Entwistle has not commissioned any forthcoming Christmas specials about said politician…

      Can’t be Hancock because the description was “a very senior political figure”.

      Probably a Tory because the Beedoids would not go after one of their own (Labour).

        If so, guessing ‘it was a different time’, ‘all were at it’, ‘just the right wing rags making a fuss’ or ‘why didn’t anyone in the media raise it until now’ will not be entertained as points of order in certain quarters.

        Any more.

        But the trade in losing a one term party via ballot along with an unaccountable media monopoly that one is forced to support may be worth the moral equivalences that will doubtless ensue.

        I think many could be well advised to have caution with what they wish for.

      If that person is a minister and Cameron tries to hold on to that person he will be tossed. Even Clegg would not be able to pretend that he is in this government for national interest.

    If this Newsnight is not aired it will result in the English Establishment showing itself to be protecting its own at all costs (which of course they have never been known to do). Even in prison pedos get the sugar treatment for they are the low of the low. For the political class and the establishment to maintain credibility in terms of drawing the line at what is right and what is wrong the program must be shown.

    That said if anyone has watched Spiral Series 3 (French police drama) you will see how people can be easily led into becoming pedos by criminal gangs seeking to influence powers that be. Sad how easy it is for criminals to gain undue influence in such a manner, but it no doubt goes on. If this is how it happened to the senior MP he has my sympathies, but he should have gone to the police as soon as he knew/was blackmailed.

    More to the point, and again this may be me being nieve here, but surely MI5 must know about all sexual kinks of all MPs so if they knew why did they not “have a word” with his party to have him quietly resign from public office?

            according to Susie, this person was a labour senior minister in the 1990s who is still a backbencher. In another post she says he never married and does works for charity (though if its who I think it is, I’m not sure they’d be classed as a charity outside the loony left). That’s more than enough to work out who she is hinting at if you work at a process of elimination. (its not Chris Smith, as he left his seat in 2005).

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blair_ministry#May_1997_to_June_2001

            I also agree with her that if the labour friendly hacks at the BBC and BIJ starting outing tory nonces, then you can expect tory friendly hacks at the telegraph, mail and news international to start outing labour ones.
            The newspaper industry would like a retort to the Leveson witchhunt and there’s no better one than this if they can make it stick to all three parties.

            If only a few of the rumours about senior LibLabCon politicians are true, then expect the expenses scandal times ten. If all of them are true, expect carnage at the ballot boxes. The people can forgive parties for having expenses cheats eventually, I’m not so sure they can forgive paedophiles and those who cover their deeds up quite so quickly.

    The BBC might consider it has nothing to lose by libeling Conservative politicians as the BBC won’t exist to defend the allegations by the time the allegations come to court.

    The Left see this as a political war. Phone ahcking was an attempt by the Left to assert the Left’s moral superiority (via the BBC) over news dissemination. The Savile scandal has wrecked that. The will throw all manner of crap around as they sink under the waves.

      The police, the Thatcher govt, and the Murdoch press were a human centipede, eating each other’s shit. Same with Blair govt as well.

      Savile was very close to Thatcher and moved in Tory social circles, you have to remember the ruling class, regardless of their political leaning, regard children in the same way they look at the poor and working class; they see them as serfs.

    Yes this was clearly about blackmailing the government.

    But now they have effectively smeared the whole Conservative government of the time – with a guessing game going on of who it was. I’m sure there are plenty senior labour and conservative child abusers – politics seems to attract psychopathic deviants – but this ‘programme’ was clearly politically motivated and completely unacceptable because it puts the spotlight on plenty of people who will be completely innocent.

    And the difference between the Julian Assange case could not be more stark. He was branded an alleged rapist in the most appalling manner when neither woman has in fact accused him of rape – and yet a credible man (and other victims) come forward to tell of harrowing experiences of violent attacks and repeated rapes as children and the POLICE and BBC and GOVERNMENT are complicit in letting the rapists get away with it.

    This after the BBC intentionally built up a rumoured child abuser as their favourite children’s TV presenter, when they bloody well knew about the accusations. This points to very high up people giving him this position so he could procure children for rapists. Utter bastards.

No one should be fined or inprisioned for not wanting to watch eastenders or strictly come dancing. its this time of austerity the public should not be milked to fund wealthy executives and celebrities. IF the BBC is as good as it keeps telling everyone who will listen, then I am sure subscription will be a success. I dont like the BBC’s overtly political agenda, I don’t like Fox new either.

        Yup. I was looking in the Guardian today for articles and editorial regarding their columnist and employee Dennis McShame.

        ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

        But that is no surprise coming from that lying toilet roll of a “newspaper”.

    It would be rather more productive if, rather than going back to 1992, some-one (who – perhaps CEOP, but if so give them extra budget necessary) were to do a data matching exercise, perhaps using the Operation Ore files (1999) to find out which political (all parties) and media (not just the BBC but the Guardian and others) pederasts were still active at the turn of the millennium. Who was the “famous newspaper columnist” who was apparently known to, but not named by, the Sunday Times. How many have subseqeuntly featured in CEOP investigations

      Soham worth a mention too , in terms of cover ups , particularly considering the circumstances.

      Wasn’t Jill Dando involved with some paedophile investigations

    Some 10, or more, years ago I received a letter (may have been a fax) from someone unknown to me regarding a scandal involving a North Wales Children’s home. The letter named a Conservative Lord as being a kiddy fidler at the home. I arranged a meeting with an MI6 guy who flew into a panic and accused me of letting him unwittingly handle the document. He told me never to contact him again and did a rapid QFO. So, I sent the letter to one of our leading shit-stirrer mags and would you know it – the document was stolen soon after from the magazine HQ in a burglary. The next thing I knew was that a London lawyer contacted me who had come into possession of the said burgled document with a threat to sue me if I repeated the allegations. After several conversations with him, I convinced him that the letter didn’t originate from me and I heard no more.

    Does not surprise me if it is a senior tory. As they get plenty of practice at Public Schools like Eton.

    What’s the big deal, it’s only another Tory return to Victorian Time and Family Values.
