REVEALED: British MPs ‘Covered Up’ Child Abuse For Decades, Report Finds

BRITISH MPs ‘covered-up’ Child Sex abuse for decades an independent inquiry into historical sex offences in Westminster has found.

The report found there “have been significant failures by Westminster institutions in their responses to allegations of child sexual abuse”.

“This included failure to recognise it, turning a blind eye to it, actively shielding and protecting child sexual abusers and covering up allegations,” said the summary of the report.

Al-Jazeera reported that ‘Major figures’ in Parliament were involved in child rape in the 1970s and ’80s, including Peter Morrison and Cyril Smith.

The sick pair were “known or rumoured to be active in their sexual interest in children and were protected from prosecution in a number of ways”, by police, prosecutors and political parties.

Peter Morrison, the private secretary to former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, both Morrison and Smith received knighthoods – a British honour which awards the title “Sir”.

The report found massive failures by Westminster in their responses to “allegations of child sexual abuse”.

“This included failure to recognise it, turning a blind eye to it, actively shielding and protecting child sexual abusers and covering up allegations,” said the summary of the report.

Home Secretary Priti Patel hailed the “strength and courage” of the victims who testified during the inquiry.

“The government will review this report and consider how to respond to its content in due course,” she said in a statement.
