Dr Alf gives us what is in effect a non story from the Guardian about Sir Edward Heath.
His name and the names of other politicians, famous people and even judges and top policemen, has been circulating around the internet and Scallywag Magazine for years.
This is along with stories in Private Eye about the Kincora Boys Home, involving the security services videotaping foreign diplomats/dignitaries engaged in bizarre and unusual activities, and then threatening to release the damming footage if ever that individual was to vote the wrong way in the UN.
Often the victims of these alleged activities are threatened into silence as surely as if they had been delivered a wet fish by a “Qualified Man” working for a Mafia Don.
Ordinary policemen investigating Cyril Smith MP had 140 plus complaints about them, yet the stories of Special Branch officers threatening them under the Official Secrets Act are legion, as are stories about the confiscation of police notebooks.
These threats are real because a breach of the Official Secrets Act means loss of pension rights.
Under these circumstances, evidence disappears, as was the case with the file delivered by the late Geoffrey Dickens to the late Sir Leon Brittan.
Always the police fail to get to the bigger fish because their investigations are stopped in mid-flow from orders on high.
That means there is no evidence that would stand up in court and by the time there is the alleged victims have died.
The Lowell Goddard enquiry will net some small fry in the form of the odd pop singer or closet Satanist like Jimmy Saville but evidence about anyone important will never see the light of day.
As for Ted Heath, I remember him as the man who created the three-day week, and who capitulated to the NUM. Margaret Thatcher was right to replace him and was ten times the person Edward Heath was.
