This video from Britain is called Jimmy Savile & Margaret Thatcher.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

Tory peer Lord Lawson says police should stop funding historical sex abuse investigations to save money

Lord Lawson says the police are complaining too much about a lack of funds

Police forces around the UK should save money by cutting back on investigations of historic child sex abuse, a Conservative peer has said.

Lord Lawson, who was Margaret Thatcher’s chancellor in the 1980s, said the police should not complain about a lack of resources for security work while the probes were being conducted.

“Security is essential. It’s vital. But I think the police are complaining a little bit too much,” he told BBC One’s Andrew Mar Show on Sunday.

“Look at how much the police is spending now on chasing up often unsubstantiated accusations of historic sex abuse.

The Daily Express newspaper reports that the costs of such investigations around £3.4m, a relatively small portion of the £8.2bn 2015-16 central government police budget.

The Government is making cuts of £300m to this amount in a year, according to figures from late 2014.

A leaked letter from police chiefs to the Home Secretary Theresa May shows that officers believe such cuts will undermine the police’s ability to deal with a Paris-style terror attack.

The lobbying for more spending on police comes ahead of the Chancellor’s spending review.

Key investigations into historic child sex abuse include Operation Hydrant, which is looking at 1,433 suspects said to be of public prominence.

Operation Fairbank, led by the Metropolitan Police, was begun in 2012 as a “scoping exercise” to establish evidence for further former investigations.

Operation Athabasca is looking into allegations surrounding the Elm Guest House in Barnes and Operation Midland is examining allegations around an apartment building in Dolphin Square.

Separate inquiries are also being led by Greater Manchester Police and the States of Jersey Police.

The child sexual abuse investigation has been beset by errors from the off. STEVEN WALKER smells a rat: here.

  2. The British police can afford to infiltrate protest groups having no threat to British security, the police who had a undercover agent infiltrating this group who impregnated one of the members of this group and then disappeared from this group and this woman? having no responsibility financially to this person and involved with deception, I suggest if this is how police operate in a frivolous and depraved way and have the time to use in such a way is a problem for police to work within a budget? As for the money spent some eleven million pounds to what I would say is persecution of a individual as Assam on such a frivolous allegation as not using a condom are not only pathetic but a public nuisance who are not involved with justice but are a organization bent on working against the interests of the British citizen and are a source of revenue collectors of fines for politicians and the funding of the 1% rich and need now to be disbanded and a police force who are responsible and committed to justice for all.

    A FORMER aide to Prime Minister David Cameron avoided jail yesterday after being convicted of downloading pictures of scantily clad girls as young as 10 in sexual poses.

    Patrick Rock of Fulham, south-west London, who faced 20 charges of making indecent photographs of children, had claimed the images he downloaded on to his iPad over three days in August 2013 were not indecent.

    But the jury in his trial at Southwark Crown Court in London rejected his claim and convicted him by majority verdict of five counts.

    Rock was acquitted of three similar charges, while jurors were unable to agree on the 12 remaining counts and were discharged, meaning the charges will lie on file.

    The court heard that the youngest of the girls in the pictures was aged just 10 years and four months when Rock downloaded the image — meaning she would have been younger when it was taken.

    Judge Alistair McCreath sentenced Rock to a two-year conditional discharge on each count, to run concurrently.

    The judge said: “I have not lost sight of the obvious reality that right-thinking people will quite properly consider that those who did what you did should be punished for it.

    “You should be. And you have been.

    “The punishment for you is the loss of your reputation and your very public humiliation.

    “It is a punishment which you brought on yourself, but is nonetheless a very real one. And it is one that is utterly merited.”

    Judge McCreath, the Recorder of Westminster, added that his sentence did not amount to “any sort of excusing of, conformation of or trivialising of this sort of offending.”
