Harman: “No One Should Be Complacent” About Historic Abuse

In 2012 Harriet Harman was very clear about not letting old sex abuse issues rest:

“no one should be complacent and believe that sexual abuse by people in positions of power at the BBC happened then, but could not happen now? The BBC should proceed now to review all its policies and processes on the protection of children, sexual harassment and whistleblowing, in order to be sure that the right policies and processes are in place and are properly enforced.”

She told the Commons that “there are still countless young women and men who have been abused but have never complained because they bear a great burden of shame, guilt and disgust, and fear that they will not be believed.”

And what to do?

“Should not our strong and clear message to them today be “Come forward now, seek the support that you need to address the wrong that has been done to you, and, in doing so, not only secure the justice that you deserve but protect others in the future”?”

Suddenly, when the wolves are at her door, it’s all a smear to dredge up history.

    If the Daily Mail story is false, then can someone tell me why Harriet et al are not suing them to oblivion?

    The lady could buy another get away in Norfolk & serve roast goose everyday with the winnings, surely?

    I’ve just skimmed through that ‘Smoking Gun document’ in the link and, much as I loath Labour in all its guises, I don’t think Harriet was proposing anything unreasonable in that document.

    It’s quite clearly against child pornography. It’s concerned only that naked pictures of kids be taken in context ie nobody gets arrested for taking pictures of their kids in the bath or for sex education material or legitimate documentaries or dramas.

    And the ‘reduction in sentences’ refers to lower sentences for people who posses kiddy po*rn compared to those who actually took the pictures. The users ‘v’ the ‘pushers’ if you like.

    Sadly, if that’s the ‘smoking gun’ evidence ‘proving’ Harriet was supporting P*I*E then they’re talking shit.

            As a lawyer, H’arman would have been fully aware of the size of this loophole.

            This is why current legislation just classifies images of child abuse as being that of a crime scene, and are treated outside of obscene publication legislation.

            The argument is that H’arman is refusing to apologize for her part in advancing the interests of the P.I.E. That is not quite the same as being a P.I.E. supporter, but in the mind of the public the equivocation will be made.

            From a moral point of view it is actually worst.

            The association that needs to be hammered home is that H’arman has demonstrated that there are no moral or ethical limits on what she will do to advance herself or interests which she represents.

            As a lawyer she would have understood the ramifications of what she was writing, and she was perhaps writing what the P.I.E. had asked her to, rather then her own thoughts on the matter.

            ‘All three of them really need to explain why they were so friendly toward so many campaigning homosexual paedophiles in their youth. Why did they allow the NCCL gay rights sub-committee to be stuffed with them? Why were they happy to work with paedophilia supporters on the NCCL Executive? It cannot have been sympathy with child-molestation, so was it a complete lack of judgment or was it moral cowardice?

After that a draft document would be put together and circulated for further comments. It is likely that a meeting of the interested parties would be held for the final version to be signed off. HH’s name may be on the document and she may have been responsible for its submission but it could be that substance of the document was dictated by others.

    Why is no one saying the real truth? The reason PIE was allowed to affiliate and promote itself was because of the left’s obsession with homosexuality.

    Even today if you Google the Guardian and age of consent the majority of stories involve campaigners who are homosexual who want the age of consent lowered or abolished. Google it yourself.

    The media, politics and the performing arts are dominated by homosexuals who are obsessed with shagging little boys and the left don’t see it as a problem.

      Something else no one is talking about is the exact parallel in the US, where the ACLU was pressured by NAMBLA into taking the same positions as the NCCL was by PIE, and just as with PIE, NAMBLA began as an offshoot from gay rights movements.

      The association of paedophilia with homosexuality is no accident. Back in the 70s both were seen as persecuted sexualities that the ‘old order’ would soon need to accept, hence their embrace by leftie civil liberties orgs.

    Screeching Earl Snitch says:

    New Labour legislation classified everybody up to 18 as a child for the purposes of “indecent images” of “children” (beware of possessing old newspapers with pics of a teen Sam Fox ); they passed a law criminalizing unreal “indecent” images of children (drawings, cartoons, doodles..whatever – which apparently have a chronological age – up to 18). They passed a law criminalizing lots of fantasy images of adult “violent porn” – their attack on “the BDSM community” – this is the law Cameroid is adding fictional rape images to. They were on their way to outlawing all “paying for sex” too, just at the point they were chucked out (their unrestricted immigration policy, leading to the creation of a significant new sex trafficking problem in England, will give them the excuse to ban “buying sex” when Milibean ousts Lord Snooty). Whatever nasty connections the loathsome Hattie Hatemen and co’s former employers had back in the day, NuLabour’s old commie gang were mad keen to enact legislation the Mail positively gags for – some like the adult images one, utterly idiotic, and quite incompatible with their own ‘uman rights act. The only sexuality the hard left really approves of deep down is the homosexual variety – both parties being “equal” and one not “dominant” (so reasons the deranged and authoritarian mind of the egalitarian obsessive).
