‘The most damning evidence yet of how the Establishment hid Lord Janner’s alleged child abuse can be revealed today.
Police and social workers were told more than 20 years ago that the peer took a vulnerable boy to Labour Party offices and Parliament before molesting him in his marital bed.’
‘Allison Pearson wrote in The Telegraph two days ago, ‘As Oskar Groening, the so-called Accountant of Auschwitz, goes on trial at the age of 93 for his complicity in war crimes, the 86-year-old Labour peer Greville Janner is excused prosecution for 22 alleged sexual offences against nine boys in his Leicestershire constituency, from the 1960s to the 1980s, because he is suffering from ‘severe dementia’.’
‘An England footballer was yesterday charged with grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.
Adam Johnson, 27, who plays in the Premier League for Sunderland and has represented his country 12 times, faces a lengthy jail term if he is convicted.’
‘The CPS was today accused of double standards for not prosecuting Lord Janner after it emerged at least 19 men with dementia have been convicted of child sex offences since 2010, including ten in the past year.
MailOnline can reveal that some paedophiles, including several too ill to enter a plea, have still been prosecuted and in some cases jailed for the rest of their lives because of historic sex attacks.
On Friday Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions, concluded that former Labour MP Lord Janner’s dementia made him unfit to plead on 22 historic child sex offences between 1969 and 1988.
She decided there was no public interest in prosecuting Janner because of his illness, yet the CPS’ latest prosecution of a dementia sufferer on sex charges came in February.’

‘There was a time when I regarded the idea of an ‘Establishment cover-up’ with a pinch of salt. Was it really plausible that the powers-that-be should act in concert over a prolonged period of time to suppress the truth?
Even if they attempted to do so, surely some decent person would sooner or later speak out, or inform the Press. It seemed unlikely that evil on a vast scale could be concealed more or less indefinitely in what is supposed to be a free and open society.
I’m afraid a succession of sex abuse cases have blown apart my preconceptions. It’s plain beyond any dispute that politicians, senior policemen and members of the security services have conspired to protect abusers because they were considered important, and to deny their victims justice.’
‘Lord Janner signed a letter saying he wanted to remain a peer just a week before he was ruled unfit to face child sex charges.
Abuse campaigners last night angrily questioned why the suspected paedophile was able to remain in the House of Lords if he was too frail to be brought before court.
The Crown Prosecution Service has faced widespread criticism since announcing last week that Janner would escape prosecution over child sex allegations because he has Alzheimer’s disease.
But now it has emerged that the peer was apparently well enough to sign his name in an April 9 note to Lords authorities.’
‘Alison Saunders, the Director of Public Prosecutions, spent almost £7,000 of taxpayers’ money on business class flights around the world while the Crown Prosecution Service headed towards crisis over Greville Janner and doomed trials of journalists.
Ms Saunders, who is paid £200,000 a year, flew business class to New York, Washington, Dubai and the Caribbean, and also jetted to Madrid, Rome and The Hague for publicly-funded trips while the CPS spent a year contemplating whether to prosecute Lord Janner.’
‘The legal adviser to Alison Saunders was a barrister in the same chambers as the son of Lord Janner, it emerged last night.
The Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that the Director of Public Prosecutions consulted Neil Moore – a barrister at 23 Essex Street where Daniel Janner worked – over whether to prosecute Lord Janner, The Times reported.
And senior police officers probing allegations of child abuse offences against the Labour peer have reportedly raised concerns about Mr Moore’s involvement in the decision to not proceed with his trial.
Last night a CPS spokesman said Mrs Saunders made the decision not to prosecute on her own, and that Mr Moore told her he had been in chambers with Lord Janner’s son before discussing the case.’
‘Young children whose mothers took antidepressants while pregnant show higher rates of anxiety than their siblings who were not exposed to medication, a new study shows.
Researchers in Norway also found that untreated depression – without the use of prenatal antidepressants – is associated with behaviour problems in children.
The conclusions were met when scientists looked through data belonging to more than 20,000 pairs of siblings from the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort study with babies and toddlers aged up to three.’
