Well this is a bit of a ramble, but the main story is how a prominent Leicester MP Greville Janner had credible allegations of sexual abuse made against him over a long period of time but was never investigated.
It is suspected that the Security services of MI5 and Special Branch protected him due to his position of being an influential Jewish personality who had a relationship with leaders of countries of the Middle East.
There is also the story of how paedophiles infiltrated Children's homes in the Leicester area in the 1960s,70s, 80s and probably beyond. There seemed to be a paedophile network active in the Leicester area probably protected in part by Freemason influence.
We also see how inquiries into abuse in the 1990s after the Frank Beck child abuse trial were not very effective and probably did not stop all the abuse.
We examine how the Carl Beech case in 2018 impacted on inquiries, to the extent that the case seemed like an attempt to hijack the debate on child abuse after the Savile case had bought forward so many historical claims.
It is hoped that the ill-fated Independent Inquiry of Child Sexual Abuse inquiry (IICSA) will provide some answers when it produces its report in 2022. They will produce a separate report on the Janner case.
I would also like to state again that this podcast is not edited in any way and is recorded in one take, so apologies over any stuttering or mispronounced words.
Of no interest to anyone other than myself, this is the 80th podcast I have produced.
