When David Cameron was handed a list of supposed paedophiles on breakfast television a few days ago, he certainly appeared to be rattled and some observers might suggest the prime minister looked positively frightened – and so he might; not least because Cameron has, like all politicians except the greatly missed Claire Curtis Thomas, been utterly complicit in allowing accusations of so called ‘historic’ abuse to flourish and proliferate for years without ever once acknowledging that some claims may be untrue or based on faulty memories.
Recovering quickly, our brave leader lost no time in doing what he always does so well; passing the buck to someone else; in this case the police who are busy investigating – and possibly creating – the largely unnecessary evidence to support the latest ‘historic’ claims.
Cameron’s cowardly approach to this problem must surely now be analysed by his advisors following the Steve Messham disaster. It certainly silenced the NSPCC and other child protection zealots for they were nowhere to be seen after Mr Messham dropped his bombshell.
After every child protection ‘expert’ and every child protection lobby group and charity repeated the mantra that “victims must be heard and believed”, their wish was granted.
As a result, a perfectly innocent man had his reputation thoroughly ruined and only then did the truth really come out: Messham was wholly wrong.
Wrong man, wrong name and even the wrong face.
Lord McAlpine’s reputation is still in tatters though, thanks to the insane dogma that says any person making any allegation of abuse must be believed – even if the only evidence available is their own memory of 30 or 40 year old events.
In the view of TheOpinionSite.org, Messham’s claim that he had never seen a picture of McAlpine is simply unbelievable. Consider this:
Mr Messham is a man who supposedly, for 30 odd years, carries around the ‘trauma’ and memory of being systematically and repeatedly raped by an individual and then comes forward with his accusations of who the perpetrator is. A face no doubt etched into his mind for ever.
Yet in all that time, he fails to search out or even look at a picture of his alleged abuser even though by his own admission, he wants the man to be arrested and locked up.
Forget the “bravery” of supposed victims; the real bravery lies with Lord McAlpine for coming forward and tackling the lies of Mr Messham head on.
There are other holes in Messhams story too. Big holes.
Two other residents of the same children’s home are reported as confirming that whilst abuse was rife in the establishment, the idea of ‘posh cars being driven up and boys being taken away isn’t true.’
Messham says he was at Bryn Estyn children’s home at a different time but really, who knows?
Mr Messham, no doubt like many other individuals, honestly believes that he was repeatedly abused; that belief may very well be true – or it may not. Without real, hard evidence, who can possibly say?
With thousands of sex offenders locked up, often for alleged ‘historic’ offences and often with the only ‘evidence’ being the memory of the allegedly abused individual, an accusation of child sex abuse is the perfect blunt weapon for anyone who wants money or revenge.
Regrettably, the British public – including those who sit on juries – have completely lost the ability to look at such allegations objectively. In short, once the allegation is made, it must be regarded as being true unless somehow, the accused person can prove their innocence.
It is exactly the same methodology used in the Salem Witch Trials and in similar trials in Britain during the Middle Ages. There is absolutely no difference whatsoever.
TheOpinionSite.org makes no apology for this view or for accusing the British people of behaving like sheep in cases of alleged abuse. The herd like behaviour of almost the entire population suggests only three possibilities:
- The public are too weak to stand up to the over-powerful child protection lobbies who feed on the hysteria that they themselves create
- The public are too stupid to understand what is really going on
- As long as they themselves are not accused, the great British public couldn’t care less if another ‘nonce’ gets locked up for 20 years…and it’s good entertainment too.
Which of the above it is, you can judge for yourself.
Either way, with a prime minister who is a coward when it comes to dealing with the hysteria to which he himself has contributed along with his cabinet, with multi-million pound businesses maintaining the public fear of child abuse and paedophilia, with what is effectively a state police force that cannot be criticised and with a bunch of politicians who just want to collect their money and run, there is little hope for the innocent person accused of being a child abuser in Britain today.
Those who are too weak, too stupid or just don’t care should learn from Niemöller who wrote:-
“…First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me…”
Instead of Socialist, read ‘sex offender’ and for Trade Unionist, read ‘alleged paedophile’ and you can see that the madness that ultimately destroyed Germany has now taken over in today’s Britain.
The sad fact is that many people have indeed been abused, sometimes terribly. However, the fact that nearly 2 million people in Britain’s Child Protection Industry make their living from the effects of that abuse is even more sad.
That those in that industry cannot even bring themselves to agree that such an industry exists is self-delusion. ‘Helping people’, as the industry was described by someone from Kidscape recently on BBC Radio 5, is not the same thing as charging £2,000 a day to speak as an expert or running an organisation that has a hugely expensive management structure indistinguishable from that of any large corporation. Nor is ‘helping people’ anything to do with using guilt to force a whole nation into accepting the word of anyone who feels they can get their hands on money so long as they make an accusation of abuse.
The courts are as bad, having decreed that even if an alleged abuser is found to be innocent, compensation can still be paid to the accuser.
Given that no real evidence is needed and that, so long as you can persuade a couple of other people to back your story and that it doesn’t matter how long ago the alleged events took place (even if there is no real proof), it is hardly surprising that so many ‘victims’, ‘survivors’ and ‘brave individuals’ have suddenly come forward, all no doubt wearing their bank account number on their sleeve.
If David Cameron can’t find the balls to end this madness, if he really is that much of a coward, he should at least instruct the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority to stop paying people direct and make money available only for therapy and counselling.
He should also stop solicitors from touting for business and for putting words into the mouths of their clients and he should prevent the unaccountable police from embarking on ‘trawling’ exercises in the hope that they can persuade enough people to back the story of the first complainant.
If he really wants people to tell the truth whilst they are still able to be believed, he should introduce a Statute of Limitations so that they come forward in a timely fashion – as happens in more civilised countries.
Here at TheOpinionSite.org, we can already hear the cries of anguish and anger from those making their living from ‘helping’ those who have supposedly been abused. But all the noise in the world doesn’t change the facts.
The police proudly say that Jimmy Savile “is believed” to have abused up to 300 or 400 people, depending on who you listen to.
What that means is that they cannot yet prove that he has actually abused anyone.
If the only evidence is the recollections of ageing minds, that is not enough. Nor is it sufficient evidence to lock up those who are still alive – at least, it shouldn’t be.
The zealots, the police, the CPS and the industry all tell us that if the above measures were introduced, the guilty might go free.
So what? If introducing the suggested changes means that the innocent will not end up in jail and not die there (as they often do), the changes are worth it.
These ‘historic’ abuse claims refer to events that are in the distant past and if people cannot move on, they should be helped to do so through counselling or whatever – but not through encouraging revenge, vindictiveness or raising the prospect of receiving money.
TheOpinionSite.org does not care that many will find this article hard to read and nor do I, the author, care what people think of me as a result.
This madness has to end before British society rips itself apart, if it is not too late already.
If Cameron is too weak to end it, he should pass the buck to someone else – as he usually does. If the Labour party are not brave enough to undo the damage that they created when Blair was prime minister, they should at least not seek to prevent others from doing so.
Yvette Cooper, the poisoned dwarf that is supposedly the shadow home secretary, should stop stoking the fires of public fear; and her sycophantic and supremely sanctimonious colleague, Harriet Harman should stop going on about ‘brave survivors’ who may in fact be lying through their collective teeth.
The Liberals should stop behaving like Conservatives and stand up for what they once believed in – fairness.
As this madness continues to grow, readers may like to watch the following short video brought to my attention by a member of TheOpinionSite.org Forum.
It was intended to be humorous but in fact, thanks to the insanity of which most of the British public are now a part, it is terrifying and – regrettably – truthful. Ignore it at your peril.
