(not satire – it’s the UK press!)

Most of the UK mainstream press seems more than a little reluctant to report that the police were investigating former Tory Home Secretary Leon Brittan for rape and child abuse at the time of his death.

Which is why this paragraph in an article on Brittan in the Telegraph today stands out:

He succeeded Arthur Cockfield, who had gone native in Brussels. That did not happen to Leon; he was native already. Throughout his political career, he was a “federast”, and groomed youngsters in the same appalling creed; Nick Clegg is the most notorious example. But he did help to advance free trade.


Perhaps the Telegraph is trying to tell us something?
