So here’s a thing:
Police are investigating claims that up to five paedophile rings operated at the heart of Westminster with the involvement of “highly influential” politicians.
A Labour MP who has handed a dossier of evidence to Scotland Yard said he now believed the complexity of child abuse networks at the heart of government in the Seventies and Eighties had been seriously underestimated.
I have absolutely no idea what anyone thinks the incidence of paedophilia is. And note here that we’re talking about “stranger” rather than inter-familial (and thus more akin to “rape rape” as Whoopi said).
Apparently the claim is that 22 people who were either MPs or Lords were involved in a two decade period. It’s a bit of a floating population so, say, 2,000 people? 11 in 1,000 are stranger paedophiles?
Is the claim that politicians are uniquely awful or that this is the general number in the population?
I have no idea at all: does anyone else?
