Cameron challenged on child sex abuse inquiry now backed by “fab 40” MPs

The demand for an independent panel to examine  police failures in investigating child sexual abuse going back years is rising in Parliament.

David Cameron was challenged by a Liberal Democrat MP Duncan Hames at Prime Minister’s Questions. Hames asked Cameron: “The prime minister will have heard calls from honourable members on all sides of the house for an independent inquiry on the Hillsborough model, into organised child sexual abuse in this country. Can he truly be satisfied that current police investigations are sufficient for the public to have confidence that we are both willing and able to get to the truth?”

Cameron implied that may not be granted at the moment but promised to look at it.

The demand for an inquiry – which began with an initiative by Zac Goldsmith, Mp for Richmond, has now expanded to 40 MPs from all parties.

The full story with the full list of MPs is on the Exaro website today. In the meantime thanks to all the Twitter followers of Exaro and to university lecturer Ian Pace, who has also been pressing for action and contacting MPs.

My magnificent seven have now become the fabulous forty.

    I hope everybody keeps pushing this, so the Fabulous Forty become a thrilling 350 (or so). With a majority of the house demanding action, Cameron would have to pay attention. Wouldn’t he?


  2. Reblogged this on Beastrabban’s Weblog and commented:
    Let’s hope the number of MPs keeps expanding, as Mike’s said in his reblog. It’s truly a national scandal that the police inquiries have been so lackadaisical and negligent for so long. If indeed the negligence isn’t deliberate, in which case it’s criminal.


  3. I was abused and everything I hear a child has been abused I shiver and feel for the child and family he’re is someone, someone who works for the public and does nothing. Shame on your. You should be named in local paper for the next elections


  4. David i see the bbc has finally decided to take this matter a bit more serious with their recent reporting on child porn stating it had reached epidemic proportions and anothet item about increase in pedophilia because of the dark net usage
