Police forced by DPP to interview Leon Brittan as Lords back MPs for child sex abuse inquiry
All I can say is this post is almost a month old, and we’ve heard little. The bastard’s got away with it- as they almost certainly all will save perhaps a few sacrifices to sate the people’s ire. And sate it almost certainly shall be as they move on to the next ‘Jeremy style’ scandal.

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders, forced the Metropolitan Police Service to review how it had investigated the allegation against Leon (now Lord) Brittan that he raped a 19-year-old student in the summer of 1967 before he became an MP.
The full story is on the Exaro website after my colleague Mark Conrad talked to the alleged victim called ” Jane”.
Saunders demanded to know from the Met why it had closed the case without even questioning him.
As a result, detectives interviewed Brittan under caution by appointment in the first half of June at his solicitors’ offices. Brittan issued a statement today saying the allegations are without foundation.
The latest disclosures come as the Home Secretary is to make a statement to Parliament about setting up an inquiry. Details will become clear exactly what inquiry it will be this afternoon.
