‘The Government is hiding a devastating report that shows rehabilitation courses taken by thousands of jailed rapists and paedophiles make them more dangerous once they are released.

According to the study, prisoners who take the courses are at least 25 per cent more likely to be convicted of further sex crimes than those who do not, suggesting that the sessions may have created hundreds of extra victims.

The controversial Sex Offender Treatment Programme (SOTP), a six-month psychological group-therapy course, is believed to have cost taxpayers well over £100 million since it was set up in 1991.

Before the report was compiled, about 1,000 prisoners had been taking the ‘core’ programme at a cost of about £7 million a year, many at eight sex offender treatment ‘hubs’ – specialist jails where thousands of such criminals are concentrated.

The worst offenders went on to an ‘extended’ course, which was also found to make them more dangerous.’

Former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey colluded with senior clergy to protect a paedophile bishop, a damning report revealed yesterday.

As a result, serial sex offender Peter Ball – who boasted of being a confidant of Prince Charles – escaped prosecution for more than 20 years.

An independent inquiry into the scandal found that the Church of England knew of a string of allegations against Ball, then bishop of Gloucester, but failed to alert the police. Current Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby urged Lord Carey to step down from his role as an assistant bishop after the report covering his time as head of the Church of England.

Some of Ball’s victims called for a criminal investigation into senior clergy after the report found that the Church was ‘more interested in protecting itself’ than helping those he had abused, and that at least nine bishops knew allegations had been made against him.’

‘Although it is difficult to dispute the story’s central message that individuals who have a sexual attraction to children ‘need help,’ attempting to label pedophilia as a ‘sexual orientation’ crossed the red line for many readers.

In a recent BBC article entitled, ‘Paedophiles need help, not condemnation – I should know,’ we are ‘introduced’ to an anonymous 60-something male who opens this teary-eyed treatise by proclaiming, “It’s a long time since I’ve described myself as a paedophile. Paedophilia is a disorder, a deeply distressing sexual orientation. For me, it’s triggered by traumatic experiences in childhood.”

Did you catch it? If you blinked you missed it. Like one of those clunky bills rammed through Congress on Christmas Eve that is ‘sweetened’ with all sorts of hidden ‘riders,’ the opening line of the article declares that pedophilia now ranks – alongside hetereosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality – as a “sexual orientation.” A “distressing” one for the pedophile, no doubt, but a sexual orientation nevertheless. But that is simply wrong.’

‘The Department of Justice has just conducted a series of raids across Los Angeles and arrested 238 people in connection with a Hollywood pedophilia network.

According to police, the arrests included some “major Hollywood players” as well as politicians, white-collar professionals, a monk, and other high-ranking clergy members.

The raids were conducted by the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes against Children task force, working directly with the Justice Department.

Codenamed “Operation Broken Heart III”, the sweeping raids targeted offenders wanted for the sexual exploitation of children, child prostitution, sex tourism and possessing and distributing child pornography, said Deputy Chief Matt Blake of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police stated that they are unable to release any names at this point, but confirmed that the arrested included some “household names” in the entertainment industry.’

‘A growing number of volunteers and residents who survived the Grenfell Tower fire in West London last week believe authorities and the media are deliberately downplaying the true scale of fatalities and key details of the deadly inferno.

On Monday, police confirmed 79 people are known to have died in the fire.

Of these, just five have been formally identified, while the other 74 are missing, presumed dead.

Authorities have always said the figure could rise much higher, as the tower block was able to house up to 600 people.’

‘The bodies of up to 42 people were found in just one room by search and rescue teams combing Grenfell Tower after the fatal fire last week, it has been claimed.

It is believed the remains of the group were discovered inside one of the flats by recovery teams who have been searching the White City tower block over the last few days.

A video uploaded on YouTube shows an unnamed man speaking in front of the burned out tower. He said: ‘He said: ‘I’ve got a friend who works for the fire brigade here, yeah? Yesterday on the phone he said they found about 42 bodies in one room, all hiding together. No-one knows that.’

‘Fears of a Grenfell Tower cover-up has led to calls for raids to take place on businesses and authorities at the centre of the investigation into the deadly inferno.

The Prime Minister and the Metropolitan Police have been urged to seize any potentially-incriminating evidence before it can be destroyed.

Council chiefs and building firms could face manslaughter charges over the disaster, in which at least 58 have been killed.

Labour MP David Lammy demanded urgent action, claiming contractors were expunging details of their work on the tower from their websites.’

‘Theresa May’s government is under pressure to explain claims that it neglected to improve fire safety in buildings despite warnings about the potential for tragedies like that at Grenfell House tower block.

Gavin Barwell, the Prime Minister’s new chief of staff, failed to give the go-ahead to a safety review during his tenure as housing minister, despite it already having been delayed for years.

His predecessor as housing minister Brandon Lewis declined to bring in regulation forcing developers to fit sprinklers because he said it was not the Government’s responsibility.

Jeremy Corbyn ramped up pressure by calling for Mr Barwell and others who had failed to act on calls for a safety review to face questioning.’

‘A blogger who warned the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea council of the dangers lurking in Grenfell Tower was threatened by local officials for writing about problems in the building.

Home to over 600 people, Grenfell Tower, in the Lancaster West estate, west London, was engulfed in flames in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The true scale of the tragedy is only gradually becoming clear.

As early as 2013, a man named Francis O’Connor, a member of the Grenfell Action Group (GAG), urged councillors and landlord Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organization (KCTMO) to address the fire safety risks that new works on the building would cause.

GAG had several times tried to warn the council and the landlord that the building of a school and gym next to the estate would restrict emergency services’ access, including firefighting vehicles.

But a leaked letter reveals that officials at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea tried to silence the campaigners, sending a lawyer to threaten O’Connor.’
