Leon Brittan finally named in parliament as having engaged in ‘improper conduct with children’ (video)

On 14 October, Labour MP Jim Hood used parliamentary privilege to accuse former Home Secretary Leon Brittan of ‘improper conduct with children’.

This ought to have been the final nail in the coffin of Fiona Woolf’s disgusting attempt to cling on to her position as chair of the Independent Panel Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse but, so far, neither Theresa May nor Ms. Woolf have deigned to bend to the demands of justice or the clear will of the public.

The Home Secretary’s shocking failure in mishandling the child abuse inquiry is a national disgrace. Shame on her. How can she explain that we are having to put up with these apparently planned delaying tactics? Why must the public wade through fatuous debates about whether the friend of an alleged Tory grandee paedophile should chair an inquiry into child sexual abuse?

If Theresa May had an iota of honour she would resign and allow a more competent minister to drive this inquiry forward – but no one is holding their breath for that outcome.
