WATCH: Former Tory Whip Boasts About Paedo MP Cover Up

Pat on the back for the BBC researcher who dug this out of the archives. Back in 1995 the late Tim Fortescue, who was a Tory whip in the Heath years, explained how party whips could help cover up a potential paedophile scandal:

“Anyone with any sense who was in trouble would come to the whips and tell them the truth, and say now, “I’m in a jam, can you help?” It might be debt, it might be a scandal involving small boys, or any kind of scandal which a member seemed likely to be mixed up in, they’d come and ask if we could help. And if we could, we did. We would do everything we can because we would store up brownie points. That sounds a pretty nasty reason but one of the reasons is, if we can get a chap out of trouble, he’ll do as we ask forever more.”

His little black book must have made for eye-watering reading…

    They used to make the law and it seems they still are above the law, I hate the EU but if the laws are made away from the house of corruption , we will only get laws and not the corruption part, if we have a police service, it’s time they did something, all that’s left with the people of this country is hate and distrust of all the establishment and all that will do is bubble up into something that we haven’t had since 1642.

    Similar techniques are deployed to recruit (particularly female) suicide bombers – digression.

    It’s quite fascinating how naive people are. This sort of thing happens everywhere. In the snakepit of politics, it is hardly surprising that the deployment of such methods is exaggerated. The recent Junckers kerfuffle is a classic example of horse trading where the drivers of the situation – that Merkel was hobbled by domestic politics and many other European leaders hid behind British skirts because it made their lives easier – were not clear to us innocent and unknowing outsiders. Most people will have sucked up the BBC’s pro-EU, anti British government stance and then switched off to the subject.

    Anyone who sees this sort of thing as a revelation – ie., that politicians are frequently nasty, venal and manipulative – needs to get their head over a bucket of strong coffee and take a deep breath. It’s not right but it’s not going to change. Ever. These people are devious in the extreme and the stakes are too high. Anyone who thinks they can remove such behaviour should be sectioned.

Well in time he said to said councils, I have a little book with names and amounts I payed to get previous contracts, they turn round to him and said sorry we cannot help you. The man’s business went bust and the Little Black Book came into light, then the brown stuff hit the fan, it even involved a very senior politician in Maggie government but mostly they were Liebore councils and our friends in the North.

    There will not be a purge of Parliament. This is cleverly set up to examine “historical” abuse only. They have got the BBC using the word “historical” with every reference to the affair.
    Perhaps we may find out who killed the Princes in the Tower or whether Prime Minister Gladstone really rodgered prossies but none of it will touch the current generation of kiddie fiddling MPs. May hinted at criminal conspiracies but the Met has been passed over presumably because, after her address to the Police Federation, they may go off message and tell what they know of today’s Parliament.

    July 7, 2014 at 3:24 pm
    “The reality that they didn’t ‘turn a blind eye’… they stored the info… and then used it to better their careers.

    Vaz, Hodge, Cameron and many others knew and know what was going on and have used this as a lever.

    So you have one section of ‘pedaloes’ being blackmailed into support or acquiescent by a blackmailing ring.

    That is why it is seen as endemic in the house because their are two factions ‘involved’ in the same evil.

    It is rotten to the core, to advance yourself by covering up others that are rotten to the core in another way.

    Time also to dispel the whole ‘Historical’ element, the cover up has been active in this Parliament.

    Banning US reporter Miss Goodman from Jersey was a ‘gaff’ that will haunt this present Gov. if it becomes common currency.

    There are a dozen ‘Charles Augustus Milvertons’ in the house.”

    The very people who have called for this enquiry and set the extent and remit of it are themselves in place as a result of blackmail, if they hold the cards then the enquiry will destroy their whip hand, if they are the subject of blackmail then their careers are ruined as they are of no use.

    For the first time this Country has to set up a group of people who will do what the US cops did in the prohibition era, an Eliot Ness style group of ‘Untouchables’.

    Because the corruption extends into the Police, Secret Services and Media the members of that group would have to come from somewhere out of the ‘game’.

    The EU is utterly pure and run to incredibly strict, fully open and transparent rules which are never ever broken.

    As for this vile witch-hunt against the great and the good and the purest of public servants in Westminster, the pinnacle of perfect democracy anywhere in the world. I think this is purely some airheaded, egotistical, over-the-top journalists viciously libelling our wonderful politicians, just to try to get a story and make a name for themselves. These upstart so-called journalists should be executed for that blatant treason.

    The thought that anyone, and I mean anyone who has been perfectly democratically elected to our perfect parliament could ever think for a moment of harming anyone, let alone a child, is just so ridiculous, so far removed from reality that I am amazed that any human being on earth could even bigin to fathom a way to even imagine it in their wildest of delusional ramblings.

    There is NO paedophilia in Westminster at all. AT ALL! Now stop pretending that there is and get back to serving our wonderful MPs and voting for them over and over again. Don’t forget to fill out multible postal ballots too, all for labour!

    Purge? Of whom? Surely you do not mean our cleaner than clean and whiter than white MPs? They are clean and pure. Tony Blair cleaned up politics when he was PM and they have been utterly pure ever since.

    There has been no wrong doing in Westminster at all. All this scandal is invented rubbish, which is treasonous, by the way, all designed to undermine this country’s overwhelming heartfelt love and trust in our wonderful politicians.

He never ever met any politicians during his life. Nor Royalty.

    It is extremely disgusting that anyone could ever begin to believe that any politician, who are wonderful, virtuous and honest public servants, could ever have anything to do with such horrible things as child abuse. STOP attacking our political class.

    Our elected representitives from all three main wholesome democratic parties would never ever harm a child.

    Yet some of these little tykes from disadvantaged backrounds are emotionally damaged and likely to tell fibs, I know that they do not mean to, but they cannot help it, purely because they have not had enough support while growing up in the 1980s and this is entirely due to Cameron’s vile and savage austerity cuts. Brown obviously gave them great wealth in the 1980s, but now that Cameron has shafted them, they are making things up which UKIP is then exaggerating and feeding to Murdoch.

    A number of academic institutions (e.g University Libraries) keep stock hardcopies of various publications on their shelves. I do seem to remember seeing issues of Private Eye dating from at least the 1980s onward on the shelves at University.

    Personally, if I were going to research this subject I would investigate those hardcopy paper records because electronic records can be deleted, edited, misreported, key facts omitted or otherwise tampered with far too easily. Likewise, I also think journalistic standards were probably higher in previous years. In the hardback edition of Edwina Curry’s autobiography there is a detail included that was not transferred to a common quote online about Peter Righton (“he practically admitted it…TO A NAMED SENIOR POLITICAL FIGURE”)

    By contrast, if I was an organisation that wanted to effect a cover-up I would be seizing and pulping all hardcopy records, using the grounds of “everything is digital so we want to free up shelf space” as an excuse. Those scans of Scallywag are astonishing, I bet the Intelligence Services in 1995, before the internet, thought that only a few hundred people would have seen such a small publication and they could let it pass, but now it is available to the entire world. Furthermore, I know which title would be my first choice to destroy (ahead of Private Eye).

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
