I believe the men and women who now feel able to tell us about the abuse they suffered at the hands of powerful and apparently protected people

Time for an 'I believe you' thread again.....

I believe you. I cant' imagine the horror of what you have been through. You deserve to have your story heard and to have these people brought to justice.

His interview really moved me; he was very composed and incredibly brave.

I believe you, Steven.

Just listened to radio2 interview. Feel so sad. How can there be so many evil people living amongst us all. How could anyone do this to vulnerable children. There are no words, but it makes me feel ashamed to be the same species as them. They cannot be human. I hope they are all brought to justice.

I don't think it would harm to put this here too:

There's a good suggestion of sending an email to our MPs on a comment under Tom Watson's letter to Dave.

Amending and sending the email directly to your mp NOW will ram the message home that a full immediate investigation is necessary NOW.

I believe Stephen and I've sent the email to my MP.

Dear Mr Streeter,

It's not often I'm minded to write to my MP but the issue of child abuse raised in parliament recently by Tom Watson is one I feel very strongly about. I see the Prime Minister yesterday announced some initiatives, but I am not convinced these are adequate. I've been talking to friends and colleagues and gauging the public mood - to borrow a much-used phrase, 'incandescent with rage' would just about capture it.

This issue is fizzing right now but the volcano has not yet erupted.
When it does, then look-out any government that has not done absolutely everything within its power to uncover and prosecute the perpetrators of these vile crimes. I don't want to rake over the detailed issues, Tom Watson has done that very well in his letter to the Prime Minister yesterday. If you are not already aware of its content you will find it here;

The purpose of this email is to tell you that I support 100% Tom Watson's calls for a much more rigorous and searching enquiry. I believe many of your constituents will feel the same way. Can I urge you to relay to the Prime Minister just how strongly many people are feeling about this. A more robust approach by the government is needed IMMEDIATELY. We are dealing with clever, resourceful and possibly powerful criminals here. Even as I write they will be actively working to cover their tracks.

Yours sincerely,

Steven with a v. Sorry
