Newsbiscuit is in possession of a list naming top Tory, Liberal and Labour MPs who have never been involved in illegal sexual practices with children in care. The list is long and some of those mentioned are household names. Several are Knights of the Realm. There is simply no evidence linking these men and women with horrific crimes at childrens homes up and down the country, going back over 50 years.
So far, no individual has come forward with allegations which could ruin the career of those named. Police say it is only a matter of time before no-one else comes forward.
Faced with such facts, we must think the unthinkable - that some leading figures in Parliament, whom we trust and to whom we turn in times of crisis, may have done nothing wrong.
