Survivors of child abuse deserve better than yet another cover-up

PUBLISHED July 9, 2014

Theresa May has announced a new inquiry into child sexual abuse - taking in the Civil Service, the BBC, the Churches, political parties and the public sector. To those of us who have campaigned against child-abuse cover-ups, it should be welcome news. But over the years, I have experienced many false dawns and dashed hopes. Only one thing will persuade me that the Government is serious about tackling Britain's "VIP paedophile ring" - and that is when it sets up a nationally coordinated police and social services task force with the power, money and numbers to follow up the mountain of evidence that has been ignored for decades.
