Even a Home Office research report has recently given an important measure of official recognition to the fact that children over ten (this being the age of criminal responsibility: no attempt was made to assess consent in younger children) can and do consent in sexual acts with adults. The report refers to child 'partners' in such sexual acts, rather than 'victims'. 37

What kind of people are influencing Government policy with these Home Office reports?

Is there no check on the character of the people who are given these influencial roles?

Why would the Home Office employ a woman who writes this sort of novel to do a research paper on children, which paedophiles have gleefully siezed upon as an excuse to abuse children?

I used to watch Rolf Harris as a child, and loved his show, but I remember the swimming adverts he was in, and remember feeling nauseated by them at the time.

Rolf Harris had to leave australia because of similar accusations.
The coleman experience has been exposing the sham of homosexuality
the fake website Angrifan has also been exposed again as a hard left pro homosexual website.
Today they show some photos and put twisted wording with these pics to encourage homosexuality
its digusting hateful racist and heterophobic

I don't go on Aangirfans blog any more, I thought Aangirfan was against child abuse but he/she/it posted crap about paedophiles making the best protectors of children and attacked me several times calling me "homophobic", so I think Aangirfan is a bunch of two faced trickers, even though I agree with a lot of the stuff on his/her/its blogsite.

I don't know what Aangirfans game is, but he/she/it has a different agenda to the one I thought he/she/it had, and all I want is for institutional child abuse to stop and for all the wicked ringleaders to be put into prison.

I don't necessarily want all the people who have hurt me personally to go to prison, its not revenge I'm wanting, and I know some of the people who have hurt me were acting in good faith, they dont realise who is pulling their strings, I'm particularly talking about certain people in the police and social services, drawing a distinction between people who have persecuted me and my family because they thought it was their duty, and people who have persecuted me and my family to cover up serious crimes they and their friends have committed. I think its important to seperate the two, and I would never want anyone to be punished on my account for simply doing their duty, with no malice or mischief intended.
