Leon Brittan and his file on prominent paedophiles
November 3 2012: there's a cryptic entry in my journal naming Leon Brittan as favourite in the Tory stakes. I didn't say the paedophile stakes although there has been fairly knowledgeable gossip doing the rounds for many years. Today, for the first time to my knowledge, an MP, Jimmy Hood, has accused him of improper conduct with children. It's reported in the Daily Mirror. What did he do with the dossier he was given when he was Home Secretary? Well, as it concerned prominent paedophiles, it's not hard to imagine is it?
