If, as is being alleged, information about sexual abuse of children by members of parliament in the 1980s wasn’t handled properly (e.g. lost or ignored) potentially someone has perverted the course of justice. The appointment of a ‘senior legal figure’ to investigate the matter is, in my opinion, indicative of a whitewash. Am I missing the point or is it a case for the police? Perhaps more importantly, with a general election imminent, is the government missing the point on purpose?
