‘Those from noteworthy families often feel entitled to abuse young people according to Robert Montagu, the son of the 10th Earl of Sandwich who was abused by his own father as a boy.
He made the comments at the Oxford Literary Festival while discussing his book, A Humour Of Love, in which he reveals years of abuse, including a single rape, carried out by father Victor.
Mr Montagu said that, during his years at Eton, rape was common, adding that people with ‘entitled backgrounds’ were given ‘more opportunities’ to be abusive towards children.’
‘A police whistleblower has accused the Home Secretary of ignoring warnings of an alleged child sex abuse cover-up.
Harry Bunker, 72, claimed Theresa May failed to reply when he wrote to allege two senior South Yorkshire Police officers protected paedophile pals during the 1970s.
The letter – seen by the Sunday Mirror – accused the pair of trying to sabotage one investigation where a dad admitted raping his daughters.’
‘The probe into an alleged paedophile network at the heart of the British Establishment took an explosive turn last night with the revelation that Enoch Powell’s name has been passed to police.
The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the late Tory MP, one of the most prominent and divisive politicians of the 20th Century, has been named to Scotland Yard by the Bishop of Durham. The claims relate to ‘ritual satanic abuse’.
And in a further development to the sex-ring investigations, police are to be given access to secret files held on MPs in the House of Commons archives as they hunt for evidence on suspected abusers, including former Liberal MP Cyril Smith.’

‘The investigation into how police handled child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham has been expanded, it emerged last night, after the police watchdog said it had received complaints involving more than 100 allegations against 42 named officers.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) announced that since their inquiry began four months ago, it has received 30 complaints relating to South Yorkshire Police’s handling of reports about CSE.
The IPCC initially began investigating the 10 police officers involved in the incidents highlighted by the Jay Report, which described how at least 1,400 children were raped, trafficked and groomed in the South Yorkshire town between 1997 and 2013.
The watchdog said yesterday it has now identified a total of 42 police officers, both retired and serving, from the complaints it has received over the past few months.’
‘U.S. soldiers and military contractors sexually abused at least 54 children between 2003 and 2007, according to a report commissioned by the Colombian government and the FARC.
“There is abundant information about the sexual violence, which ocurred under absolute impunity because of the bilateral agreements and the diplomatic immunity of United States officials,” said Renan Vega of the Pedagogic University in Bogota, who helped write the report.
Vega detailed a case in 2004 in which military contractors sexually abused 54 girls and filmed [the abuse] and sold the films as pornographic material. The families of the victims received death threats and the victims fled the central Colombian town of Melgar.’
‘Texas State Representative Jason Villalba (R-Dallas) is once again in the spotlight after submitting yet another Orwellian proposal, H.B. 985.
Villalba first raised the ire of civil libertarians by proposing a bill, H.B. 2006, which would have eliminated the religious exemption for vaccination, essentially creating a forced government vaccination program without exception.
More recently, Villalba was thrust into the national spotlight when he proposed H.B. 2918, which would usurp citizens of the ability to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions. The bill would negate the people’s ability to create an accurate and impartial record of police interactions by restricting citizens from filming within 25 feet of an officer.
Now with H.B. 985, Villalba intends to give school officials the authority to force psychological screenings of students that teachers and staff diagnose as having mental health issues.’
‘American officials have accused Israel of spying on diplomatic talks between the United States and Iran – and then feeding sensitive information back to Barack Obama’s political opponents in America.
Israel, which says the allegation are “utterly false”, is opposed to an emerging deal on Iran’s nuclear programme, as are most members of the Republican Party – the sworn political opponents of Mr Obama’s Democratic Party.
According to US newspaper the Wall Street Journal, US spies monitoring Israeli communications claim to have intercepted information which they allege could only have come from spying on American talks about Iran’s nuclear programme.
Spying is commonplace in international affairs, but the claim that Israel was feeding information to opposition legislators in the US Congress appears to have angered the Barack Obama’s administration.’
