(not satire)

I’m normally a pretty patient guy. It comes from being over 350 years old. But even I’m getting very, very impatient for significant action by Fernbridge Operation police officers against political figures.

It’s been months now since Tom Watson MP first mentioned “a powerful paedophile network linked to Parliament and Number 10”.

As a direct result of his information, Operation Fernbridge was set up. Finally, in February this year two arrests were made and more were promised ‘within weeks’.

Neither of the men arrested however were politicians or political figures – never mind anyone remotely linked to Number 10.

Then in mid-February, we were told an ‘ex-Tory chief’ was facing child rape charges.

But getting on for two months have passed since the first arrests were promised and the whole scandal is in danger of being forgotten about.

We already know that in the past, senior police officers have been told to shut up or have been taken off investigations for suggesting that senior politicians should be arrested.

In 1998, for example, Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll was booted off a case and disciplined when he suggested top politicians were among child abuse suspects.

It’s starting to look like the police are once again running scared of top politicians when it comes to actually feeling their collars.

Plus ça change…….
