The VIP Paedophile Ring: What's the Truth?
The recent BBC programme Panorama has tried to update us with the current position into child abuse [Operation Midland] where we stand and what is likely for the future for victims and suspects.
However one point that was raised either intentionally or subtly was the reaction [or over reaction] of the police since Saville. Saville was different in so many ways but the most striking was the response from the public after release and it was emphatic. Hundreds if not thousands of people got in touch when they realised that public opinion had changed substantially.
This was unheard of before. Believability was the new black and people who had suffered in silence now wanted the opportunity to speak out.
It has become clear through Panorama that this recent case is not having the same impact and as statements are checked and verified it appears there is more, what should I say here, confusion over the facts. How do you expect people who were teenagers 30-40 years ago to have crystal clear memories. CCTV outside Elm guest house would have been useful but did not exist.
Has the pendulum swung too far?
Does this mean that from now on investigations will return to the [I don't believe you/we have no time] state or?
