The McAlpine Effect [Dec. 14th, 2012|01:41 pm]
Tony Grist
Type "Tory paedos" or "Tory child abusers" into Google and nothing comes up that's more recent than November. This is down to the McAlpine effect. He's scared the media away. Lord M may be innocent (he must be; he's told us so) but there are a number of highly placed chaps who aren't and who are currently sheltering behind him and his litigiousness. This is one reason (perhaps the main one) why I want to see his business  gone over properly in a court of law. 

P.S. Yes, I know the Tories don't have a monopoly on child abuse. It's just that they were the ones in the frame when the McAlpine boot came thundering down. For the record the number of Labour activists, advisers and councillors who have been convicted of paedophile offences is absolutely staggering. The Lib Dems, of course, are the party of the late Cyril Smith...

Aristos have got away with 'orrid stuff for centuries because they're aristos.

Google on Gilles de Rais some time.

It is time this stopped

Yes. It has to stop.

As I remember, Gilles de Rais was eventually arrested, convicted and hanged.

He was- hanged, drawn, castrated and quartered, slowly and painfully.

Mind you, there are those who believe he was innocent. Among them George Bernard Shaw.

Guilty as charged.

Shaw may have been a fine playwright but he was an absolute ass when it came to history.

The cellar of de Rais' manor was full of the bodies of children and parts of the bodies of children. There was simply too much evidence to save even an aristo on this occasion.

I think you're probably right.

I've visited some of those castles. Machecoul is really spooky. I thought at the time it was down to de Rais and then discovered much later that it had been the site of a massacre during the French Revolution.

By contrast, Elizabeth Báthory wasn't even executed.

Yup. Could be interesting.
