Tap-tap-tapping [Nov. 7th, 2012|09:24 am]
Tony Grist
At first I thought Channel 4 News had taken the fateful decision, but after a minute or so of teasing it turned out the fat florid chap ambling along behind Mrs T in the archive footage wasn't He Who Must Not Be Named (Tory grandees look so alike) but Sir Peter Morrison who is dead. Morrison has already been outed as a man with a taste for teens and all Channel 4 was doing was confirming his identification as one of the gentleman who used to use the Bryn Estyn childrens home as an escort agency.

The media are clearly chafing at the restrictions that have been placed on them. If they'll can't discuss the living abuser(s) they'll make headlines out of the ones who are no longer around to issue writs.  They must be hoping (as I do) that if they keep on tap-tap-tapping away something's bound to give.

I notice that in the Commons yesterday Theresa May warned MPs against naming him using parliamentary privilege because that might jeopardize a future trial. (No one did.) I'm not a lawyer, but I'm having some difficulty seeing how that would work.

Odd isn't it! Nobody seemed to think it would jeopardize Freddie Starr's future trial for the media to name him in advance.

Yeah the Protocols of the Elders of Zion always seem to turn up sooner or later. Sigh.

I would like some names to be named in public. That could be done by a newspaper braving a writ or an MP using parliamentary privilege.

Parliamentary privilege could work but it would involve an MP either betraying his or her class or slamming the door on any hope of rising above his or her class. A fire-breathing, street-fighting populist might pull it off. Are there any of those about?

Tom Watson is the guy who raised the matter in parliament the other day. He's probably our best hope.

I can't find anything about it even trawling the net.

You might want to investigate the distinguished career of Lord McAlpine.
