On the subject of the missing' files that were supposedly given to Leon Brittan.
"The review, by NSPCC chief executive Peter Wanless, reported last year that there was no evidence to support claims of an official cover-up, but warned it was impossible to draw firm conclusions because of shortcomings in the paper records from the time."
Is there anyone who believes that such files as these, (allegedly) handed to Brittan and supposedly implicating him, were going to do anything else but disappear?
So lets assume the files were handed to Brittan. What would/could he do with them? He could have put them through a paper shredder this would have been the most logical thing to do. Or he could have taken them home.This would not have been smart. If this ever got out and the police were called to investigate then they may well have to search his house. This didn’t happen, maybe because this never got out until too late or there was someone, high up in government, steering the investigation.
So, if your father had just died and while you were sorting through his papers you came across the files, what would you do? I know what I would do and the chances are we would all do the same. And we would all do the same because we just couldn’t bear to have our dear departed fathers memory dragged through the mud. So, what ever the truth of it, are we ever likely to find out the truth?
Academic really because it would appear that a copy of one of the files has been found. Lets hope the finder has had the sense to photocopy it 100 times and send it to all the right people.
