Investigation of British elite child abuse scandal continues to be sidetracked

The ongoing saga of the British Elite paedophile ring – the powerful child abusers who constitute the ruling elite, took it’s latest turn towards farce this week with the complaint of the 92 year old Lord Bramall, Field Marshall and former head of the British Army. Lord Bramall is vociferously complaining about being investigated over historical child sex abuse allegations. This distinguished old soldier has recently been cleared of all allegations and is feeling extremely aggrieved that he was ever under suspicion.

Pardon me if I am a little lacking in sympathy and take this latest development in the long-running ‘investigation’ with a healthy dose of cynicism.

We have seen, in recent months, post-mortem revelations of the child abuse activities of politicians such as Cyril Smith and Edward Heath, clearly the powers that be have no problem with the exposure of these paedophiles if they are already dead and cannot be investigated and prosecuted. We have also seen the remarkably convenient deaths of Leon Brittain and Greville Janner; convenient in that they occurred just after the former was accused of covering up the Elite padeophile ring and the latter was dragged into court to face allegations of historic child sex abuse. As they say – dead men tell no tales; therefore the deaths of these members of the political elite conveniently put an end to further investigations into their activities which must make the others involved who have yet to shuffle off this mortal coil sleep a little better.

With the ever rising number of allegations against various elite figures, the successful prosecutions of men like Rolf Harris and Stuart Hall and the growing calls for further investigations; the powers that be must be growing ever more nervous that the Elite Paedophile Ring that undoubtedly exists will be exposed. This exposure would be a fatal blow to their position of power and really does possess the ability to bring down the British ruling classes, to cause a revolution in these isles.

Quite obviously, the ruling elite will do whatever they can to prevent this from happening.

One of the methods they appear to be employing to cover their collective arses is to make false allegations against a man they know is innocent; in the knowledge that a police investigation will lead to nothing and allow the accused party to bluster of their indignance and the terrible wrongs of accusations of historic child sexual abuse. It allows establishment propaganda mouthpieces like Max Hastings to bleat on about how it is so terrible that noble elderly warriors who served their country for so long can be accused of doing such horrible things. Worst of all, it sows a seed of doubt in the public consciousness regarding all the other accusations against other elite figures.

Like many other Britons, I remain convinced of the guilt of the British Elite; they have been abusing children on a sickeningly large scale, they have covered it up and blocked investigations; they are guilty as sin and are desperately covering up as much as they can because they know that the issue of child abuse and paedophilia carries the ability to ignite the British people into a wave of fury that will drive the elite out of office and crush their power permanently.

Lord Bramall may be innocent, but that doesn’t mean a lot of other Lords and bigwigs aren’t guilty.

Lord Bramall: Ex-army head to face no action on child abuse claims

Former head of the Army Lord Bramall has said he is pleased he faces no further action in connection with allegations of historical child abuse.

Lord Bramall, 92, was interviewed under caution by police on 30 April 2015.

The peer, who was not arrested and has always denied the allegations, told the BBC he had received a letter from the Metropolitan Police clearing him.

Friends of Lord Bramall criticised the police investigation and said the peer had been put through “absolute hell”.

The Met confirmed on Friday that it had told a man in his 90s no further action would be taken against him.

‘Insufficient evidence’

Lord Bramall, a Normandy veteran who retired from the House of Lords in 2013, told the BBC “There wasn’t one grain of truth” in the allegations, made against him by a man in his 40s.

He said the letter the Met had sent him was “pretty grudging, but at least I’m in the clear”.

Lord Bramall added it was “complete self-justification” by the police, who he said “had not behaved very well”.

The Met said it had informed a man in his 90s who was interviewed on 30 April 2015 by officers working on Operation Midland that he would face no further action.

The force added: “Following a thorough investigation officers have concluded there is insufficient evidence to request the Crown Prosecution Service to consider charging the man with any offences.”

Operation Midland is part of a wider umbrella of investigations by Scotland Yard, dubbed Operation Fairbank, into allegations of abuse involving senior politicians and high-profile figures.

It has focused on the Dolphin Square estate in the Pimlico area of London.

‘Utterly inconceivable’

Anthony Stansfield, the Police and Crime Commissioner for the Thames Valley, who also served as a platoon commander under Lord Bramall, condemned the police investigation.

“This is a man who has commanded our nuclear deterrent, was in charge of all our armed forces,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

“He would have been surrounded by staff, he would have had a very, very detailed diary of every day. It is utterly inconceivable and the slightest investigation would have shown that.

“Instead they seem to have barged into the house of a 92-year-old. His wife was dying of Alzheimer’s in the house… The victim in this entirely is Field Marshal the Lord Bramall.”

The military historian and friend of Lord Bramall, Sir Max Hastings, told Today the peer had “been through absolute hell” over the claims.

He said that in pursuing investigations of historical abuse police had lost sight of a “sense of justice and fairness” towards those accused.

Sir Max said “decency demanded” that the police apologise to Lord Bramall for his treatment. He said their failure to do so was “not good enough” and reflected badly on the Met.

‘Professional and impartial’

The Met said in September in defence of its actions during Operation Midland that its investigations are conducted “without fear or favour, in a thorough, professional and impartial fashion”.

Lord Bramall served during the D-Day landings during World War Two and commanded UK land forces between 1976 and 1978.

He became chief of the general staff – the professional head of the Army – in 1979, and in 1982 he oversaw the Falklands campaign.

Later that year he became chief of the defence staff – the most senior officer commanding the UK’s armed forces.
