MP John Mann has asked Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan Howe to reassure the public that allegations uncovered by the Daily Mirror are properly examined
Member of Tony Blair's cabinet was named as a suspect
An MP has written to Britain’s most senior policeman to raise concerns that only two detectives are investigating an alleged paedophile ring linked to a Labour politician.
John Mann has asked Met Commissioner Bernard Hogan Howe to reassure the public that allegations uncovered by the Mirror are properly examined.
Labour MP Mr Mann wrote: “I understand that only two officers are investigating the historic abuse of children in care in Lambeth.
"In light of the scale of the abuse being investigated, I am writing to ask that you drastically increase the number of officers and resources available.”
MP Tom Watson has previously claimed that Scotland Yard’s paedophile squad, which is running the Lambeth probe, is “chronically under-resourced”.
Police were told in 1998 that the Labour politician implicated visited paedophile Michael John Carroll’s flat at a home in Brixton in the 1980s.
Council officials suspected a cover-up when detective Clive Driscoll was removed from the case in November 1998 when he named a minister in Tony Blair’s government as a suspect. Once again the Labour Party harbours an alleged nonce. Its time to take stock and REJECT the Paedophile Labour Party and protect OUR children.
