The appeal involving a specimen conviction resulting from the flawed child pornography investigation, Operation Ore started yesterday in the Appeal Court. However, there is little being released as to the progress of the action. Nevertheless, given the huge interest in this case, not least here on TheOpinionSite.org, one has to ask why so little is being reported.
There are several possibilities, given the emotive nature of the alleged offence. However, not all are necessarily valid.
So much for so little…just click on the image above
From the appellant’s point of view, given that he will be branded with the infamous Sex Offender Register, it is probable that the court has ruled that his name and details should not be reported. If they have not done so, it is a disgrace. It will have taken a great deal of courage to go up against the bigoted childrens’ charities, the police – who have a huge vested interest in maintaining the status quo – and the gutter press.
From the point of view of Jim Gamble, the former head of the doomed Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) who is currently on ‘gardening leave’, the least that gets into the public domain the better. After all, he is the man who stoked the fires of hatred, paranoia and fear whilst simultaneously building his empire – and a comfortable income for himself and his cronies, many of whom have also resigned.
The politicians, notably former Home Secretaries Charles Clarke, John Reid and the discredited David Blunkett and Jaqui Smith will also be hoping that their contributions to the Operation Ore witch hunt will not come under too much scrutiny in the court.
What many may perceive to be ‘money-grabbing charities’, the NSPCC, Child Line, Kidscape and the ever increasing number of other similar outfits will also probably be hoping that their activities in promoting hatred and vengeance against sex offenders – real or otherwise – will not come under scrutiny. The same goes for the self-proclaimed crusaders, Payne, Keenan,the McCanns and co, all of whom seem to enjoy a comfortable income from fighting alleged child abuse.
TheOpinionSite.org does not condone nor support those who harm children or any other human being. However, we cannot ignore the views of so many who seem to be waking up to the fact that the UK establishment has created an ‘out of control monster‘, the existence of which is denied as a result of the fear of criticism, vested interests and cowardice of those who created it and supported its unholy development.
In the US, only about a 100 people were arrested and convicted as a result of the Avalanche investigation that spawned Operation Ore; in Europe there were comparatively few arrests; in the UK, there were thousands.
British police dressed in riot gear battered down doors, terrified families and children, destroyed lives and wallowed in excessive power granted to them by idiot, vote-hungry politicians who were too afraid to say ‘no’.
39 men are dead as a direct result of Operation Ore.
Thousand of probably innocent men have had their lives ruined, their families destroyed and their careers decimated.
TheOpinionSite.org believes that Jim Gamble and others are responsible for carnage born out of a lust for power and that it is right that he has gone, it is right that CEOP will not attain autonomy and independence, it is right that the appeal is being heard (even if no one knows the result!) and it is right that this sordid, evil abuse of power is examined.
Police and politicians are fond of telling us all that “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”
TheOpinionSite.org would suggest that those responsible for Operation Ore and other so called ‘child protection’ witch hunts may have plenty to hide – and quite possibly a great deal to fear.
Lord Denning refused the appeal of the Birmingham Six on the basis that allowing it would mean that the police had lied. Let us hope, for the sake of all of us, that the judge in the Operation Ore appeal has more courage and a true sense of justice.
