The Kiwi Judge in charge of the big kiddie fiddling enquiry got called out in the press and promptly resigned in the huff. The job is open again, so get you applications in.

Too slow, the new chair has been appointed. Promoted from the panel so up to date and cheap. I don't know her but she is apparently very driven and very capable.

The new chair may or may not be faffing about. Meanwhile it turns out that I M May, who is now PM but Home Secretary then, knew about the fundamental problems of the last chair and did nothing to sort them.

One from across The Pond. What the fucking fuck Oregon? Apparently being filmed in the act and admitting doing it gets you acquitted with a jury made up of fuckwits.

Leon Brittan isn't a kiddie fiddler. Or rather there is no evidence whether he is or not, so we have to presume he isn't. And the Met are shite, but anyone who has ever had any contact with them knew that.

This is why I actually quite like the House of Lords, the ones who bother to turn up tend to be quite bright and generally give no fucks since they can't be sacked and don't have to pander to the public. The ones who don't turn up tend to be the inbred and/or retired politicians who should be put against a wall.

You can add fitba'/football/soccer to the list. Turns out most clubs have had at least one abuser on the staff and some (most?) have known about it and covered it up.

I see there's a Scottish case come to light. A couple of weeks ago, when this news was just breaking and all the known cases were in England, the BBC wheeled somebody on to the radio to say that even though all the cases were in England, if they'd been in Scotland then the police and courts wouldn't be able to cope, and that it's all the SNP's fault. An usual line of discourse for child abuse in English sport, I thought.

Aye, typical.

There have been cases around Celtic Boys Club over the years, a convergence of priests and football, with allegations of cover ups and the splendidly awful song "Big Jock knew" which our lot used to sing.

It's probably safe enough to be suspicious of anybody who wants to spend time in the company of other people's children.

Ok, there is some speculation in this but it seems there is a new superinjunction in place in Norn Iron. This means there is a judicial order that not only can the details of the case not be revealed, it is contempt of court to even reveal there is a case. The basis for the attempts by Elton John to prevent us knowing his olive oil and paddling pool peccadillos were that it would adversely effect his children so the courts in Norn Iron appear (and I put it no stronger than that) to have granted a superinjunction to someone accused of sexual assault on the basis it might adversely effect his children. So because this person is rich enough he can avoid any and all public knowledge of the fact he is accused of a serious crime.

Long version here.

Interesting. I expect that, as usual, we'll know all the details before too long.

I certainly hope so, in this case the superinjunction only has effect in the Occupied Six Counties so it shouldn't be too long.

Norn Iron superinjunction is strongly rumoured to be Ian Paisley Jr. Ulster politician and son of shouty man.

If I may interject with kiddiefiddling, US style - Jeffrey Sandusky was recently arrested for, among other things, sexual assault of a child. Sadly, this isn't all that noteworthy, except for the fact that Jeffrey is the adopted son of Jerry Sandusky. Jerry was an assistant (US) football coach for Joe Paterno at Penn State University. Several years ago, it was found out that Jerry was raping and sexually abusing boys on campus, and that Joe Paterno and several other in the administration actively covered the incidents up over the course of several years. More recently, transcripts from the trials were released to the public, where it was found out that Paterno likely knew that Sandusky was molesting young boys as long ago as the late seventies. After initial sanctions by the NCAA, the Pennsylvania state legislature sued the NCAA and many of the sanctions were lifted.

What Joe could have prevented had he actually had the spine to do something.

Now deceased former PM Sailor Ted may have had a thing for cabin boys or not. Who knows, we never will. Maybe we should ask Boris Yeltsin.

If you ever start to think that Theresa May isn't a worthless fucknugget just remember she introduced this policy while Home Secretary. The short version is she authorised the imprisonment of asylum seekers who had suffered torture in their home countries, rather than monitor them in the community. A High Court Judge said, and I paraphrase, "What the fucking fuck? Release them NOW!" So the Home Office is getting sued again and will lose again. It will run to millions of pounds and the UK will look like uncaring First World arseholes who happily lock up Arabs and Darkies for no reason, which apparently, we are.

The British Army may have abused detainees in Iraq. There may be an investigation amid howls of outrage from the right wing press and Brexiteers, who completely miss the point that it isn't ok if we do it. Holding ourselves to acceptable behaviour is the only way to show who the good guys are.

Three years on in the Big Kiddiefiddling and Non-Specific Bumfoolery Enquiry and nothing appears to have happened. No accused, no trials, nothing.
