What are Britain's spies for? Protecting paedophiles, apparently:
MI5 is facing allegations it was complicit in the sexual abuse of children, the high court in Northern Ireland will hear on Tuesday.
Victims of the abuse are taking legal action to force a full independent inquiry with the power to compel witnesses to testify and the security service to hand over documents.
Children are alleged to have suffered sustained sexual abuse after being taken from the east Belfast children’s home, run by a member of a Protestant paramilitary organisation, to be offered to men.
Lawyers for the victims will argue in court that “there is credible evidence (and it is therefore arguable) that the security forces and security services were aware of the abuse, permitted it to continue and colluded in protecting the individuals involved from investigation or prosecution”, according to papers lodged with the Belfast high court.
And (unsuccessfully) framed people who complained about it for manslaughter. Its like something out of a le Carre novel.
And this isn't the only case. They seem to have been up to their neck in the Westminster paedophile coverup as well.
The problem here is the spy mindset. We see sexual abuse as a crime to be punished. They see it as leverage, a means of gaining intelligence. And this is why they should never be let near law enforcement or allowed any input whatsoever on law enforcement decisions.
