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.....

Steven Messham is on twitter and it looks like he's not coping too well. I hope he's OK and I believe him.

This whole thing stinks.

Higgle - his solicitor ACTUALLY said "People who are vulnerable . . . a good part of them is so disturbed that they’re not going to be wholly consistent and reliable."

A bit different to the DM's claim that he'd said he made it up.

Don't believe everything you read.

Thanks for the link Dark, which included . . .

In the House of Commons last week, the Labour MP Ann Clwyd called for the report to be published.

She said she had read the Jillings report shortly after it was completed. She said: "I saw it. I wasn't supposed to see it. It was shown to me. I saw it at the time. It was subsequently pulped by the then Clywd county council because they were afraid of the attitudes of the insurers.

"I would say please get the Jillings report published because it shows buggery, rape, bestiality, violent assaults and torture, and the effects on those young boys at that time cannot be under-estimated."

The DM piece was absolutely ghastly.

I believe Steven Messham.

No need for rules, SM is believed! Hope Steve is ok. That Guardian link is giving me hope the truth will out.

It is absolutely disgusting what the DM have done to Steven.

Hello , i'm not sure if this is the correct thread to put this on though topic is the same re truth and children's welfare.

I would like help in getting more support for the politicians to be investigated regarding the evidence found and ignored by Geoff Dickens in the 70's( apparently this would have stopped JS from abusing children). More recently the case reopened by MP Tom Watson who saw the evidence and called for one big super enquiry ( open letters ignored by Theresa May to say why this evidence went missing in the first place) .

Cameron declined a super enquiry but the speech by MP Tom Watson has got smaller investigations underway .

Please sign this petition started by 38 degrees to stop children being abused in care by rich powerful people who seem to be above the law, let them know we care about ALL children and need everyone brought to justice .
