Now 80 MPs back call for over arching inquiry into historic child sexual abuse

The pressure on the government to launch an over arching inquiry into historic child sexual abuse is growing hourly. The number of Mps supporting such a call has gone from 50 to  80.

Full details are available in two new articles posted today on the Exaro website. The first gives the overall picture as MPs email Tim Loughton, the former children’s minister, in  response to his letter sent to every MP. The second article gives full details of every MP backing the project and their responses – and in some cases caveats.

Andrew Lansley, the leader of the House of Commons, was also questioned by Tim Loughton today at business questions when he sought time for a debate on the issue in the Commons.

Mr Lansley is sticking to the PM’s line in refusing an inquiry but promising to keep it under review. He is not in a hurry to grant a debate either.

How long can the government and the mainstream media ignore this growing pressure driven by people, including victims of sexual abuse, on Twitter? I think it is going to become increasingly difficult for Mr Cameron and Theresa May to refuse to do this.

  1. Reblogged this on Still Oaks and commented:
    Thank you David, I also wish to see large scale enquiries into, the child abuse being concealed by our never elected rulers.


  2. Well done for IoS getting the exclusive from Simon Danczuk re. his pending appearence before the HASC. More to come with the IoS when I and the IoS will submit further allegations and evidence to the Dutch Authorities which can run alongside my previous allegations and evidence of April 2014 to the Dutch.
