Subject: RE: Backbench Business Debate – Tues 13th Nov – Child Sexual Exploitation

I asked for this debate along with Nicola and others as combating internal as well external trafficking of children, grooming, all forms of the sexualisation of childhood has been a campaign of mine and I was half-way through writing a book as the axe fell when the BNP complaint against me was upheld.

I apologise to all ex colleagues for once again allowing publicity on all the wretched expenses problems dating back to the old regime to surface. Thanks to all, led by the Father of the House, for the wonderful messages of solidarity, support and best wishes. I am winding up my office as fast as I can but helping staff and sorting 18 years of paper takes a day or two. An ex-mineworker friend from Rotherham wrote to say “I cannot condone but do not condemn.” I do condemn my stupidity and foolishness and the damage it has done to Parliament and its MPs who work far harder over longer hours and serve the people better than anyone else in public life despite the endless hate campaigns of the off-shore owned press. I wish you all the best and I urge you to support this debate and all future Parliamentary work to allow children and women to live in Britain without fear of sexual abuse or exploitation by men.

Denis MacShane

Bye.
