I AM REPOSTING THE POST I HAVE JUST MADE TO THE NEEDLE BLOG:
“The existence of the Cyril Smith sex abuse dossier was first revealed by The Daily Telegraph in November last year.
Tony Robinson, a special branch officer with Lancashire Police in the 1970s, said he saw a police dossier which was “thick” with allegations from boys claiming they had been abused by Sir Cyril.
He said that after taking the file out of the safe at special branch headquarters in Hutton, Preston, he was contacted by an officer from MI5 who told him it needed to be sent to London.
Mr Robinson also disclosed that the then Director of Public Prosecutions had examined the allegations but decided they were “not in the public interest”.
A former Lancashire police officer said he was told by Special Branch to stop his investigation into Smith and ordered to hand over the police dossier.
Jack Tasker said: “They made it quite clear that anything that was kept by us would bring repercussions if we didn’t hand it over; that as far as we are concerned, the inquiry is finished … you will take no more inquiries into Cyril Smith.”
WHY HAVE THE NAMES OF THESE COVER UPPERS NOT BEEN TOLD TO US?
Nick Clegg, you know damned well what has been going on. I urge you, beg you, please. just do the right thing. You know what you have to do. Please.
