But I do feel that we should ask for an Inquiry into the Inquiry. The Inquiry’s single question, which should be answered especially by our Brand new Prime Minister is, simply; ‘How come we have just used up no less than three ‘Heads of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse’!
First we had Lady Butler-Sloss, a High Court Judge who stood down because her brother used to be Attorney-General during the times covered by the Inquiry. I mean, ‘shouldn’t the clowns who set this thing up have realised that the woman had family members who were, at least, in the Bloody Establishment which is being investigated?’
Then, after a hurried search, Dame Fiona Woolf was chosen, only to have her resign before actually commencing, mainly because she was ‘very friendly’ with Lord Brittan, formerly Leon Brittan, another of those accused of these crimes, and because the Home Office helped draft her letter applying for the job.
Then we had the New Zealand judge Dame Lowell Goddard, who obviously lives twelve thousand miles away from London. She was said to be paid £500.000.00 annual salary, plus 30 days holiday; but has stepped down from the role before even hearing any evidence. No-one knows the real reason she stepped down; could it be that she was too embarrassed to pitch up for a job which will never, ever finish, or ever expose anyone; possibly because they are all dead: or she just doesn’t like the London life?
There are obviously questions for the actual Inquiry to pursue, but as a sceptical fellow blogger might have asked, are they the right questions?
