Nonce Finder General Missed Paedo Files Data Months Ago

Tom Watson today accused he government of being hasty in setting up an inquiry into SW1’s historic sex crimes. Haste, however, is not an accusation that can be levelled at the former Nonce Finder General. It turns out  super-sleuth Tom was told last October that 114 “potentially relevant files” concerning a possible Westminster child abuse scandal had “been presumed destroyed, missing or not found”.

Yet it only hit the news a week ago today, when Mark Sedwell told the Home Affairs Select Committee. Watson was told in a written answer from the Home Office last year, though he seems to have missed the shocking significance of the revelation.

Was Inspector Watson napping on the job, or too busy playing computer games?

Quote of the Day

Lucy Allan explains her positive comments about the Brexit Party…

“If EU elections are held, Leave supporting voters will want to vote for Leave supporting candidates… Usual party loyalties will be eclipsed by the Leave v Remain divide. It’s good to see strong candidates in the Leave camp. However, I sincerely hope we leave the EU before these elections are held so that we can move on and not waste time and money on unnecessary EU elections.”
