  1. Hopefully this will shine a light on Magaret Hodge’s tenure as head of children’s services in one of the London boroughs as well as those who have previously advocated sex with children as “normal sexual behaviour” – yes you Ms Harman and Ms Hewitt.

  2. I dare say some guardian-sponsored whinger will be the first to claim that paederasts were often themselves abused and it’s not their fault, don’t know any better &c &c.

    That notwithstanding, worse sins than ‘turning a blind eye to a paedophile’s activities’:

    1. Genocide
    2. Joining in.

  3. ‘Turning a blind eye’ is a sin of omission.

    Sins actually perpetrated against a person are always worse than the turning of a blind eye. Sometimes not by much but..

  4. In to the mix: murder, rape (of a non-child), torture, deliberate mutilation (including FGM) …

    paederasts were often themselves abused and it’s not their fault

    Their fault would be in the mistaken logical leap between the clauses of that statement. Diminished responsibility is neither _no_ responsibility nor an excuse. It is, often but not always, one of the reasons.

  5. Their fault would be in the mistaken logical leap between the clauses of that statement.

    hope you don’t think I was suggesting that I thought it a valid mitigation. I don’t.
