LONDON – Britain’s MI5 security service covered up for pedophile members of the UK government under then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher to avoid political embarrassment, local media reported Thursday, citing a recently unsealed trove of Cabinet files.

The documents, reportedly found among unsorted papers stored by the Cabinet Office, indicate that in 1986 head of MI5 at that time Antony Duff informed Cabinet Secretary Robert Armstrong that an unnamed senior Tory lawmaker had a “penchant for small boys,” the Times newspaper reported.

Duff wrote that they had accepted the parliamentarian’s denial on the grounds that “the risks of political embarrassment to the government is rather greater than the security danger,” the letter continued, Sputnik reports.

The government admitted the existence of the papers after months of requests from Sky News, a British TV station.

The station had named several key Westminster figures who were allegedly embroiled in the child sexual abuse scandal. These included Thatcher’s Parliamentary Private Secretary Peter Morrison, Home Secretary Leon Brittan, diplomat Sir Peter Hayman and Northern Ireland minister William van Straubenzee. All four have since passed away.

Sky News cited a spokesman from a children rights lobby group, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSCC), who said the disclosure showed how people at the highest levels of government “simply weren’t thinking about crimes against children.”

  1. Britain and the, all holes Catholic church have been on BIG PEDO as society is discovering more and more every day. The whole problem with these western ideologies is that the legal, judicial system is multi level so, people connected never pay properly for their crime. Sucks not to be connected to law and order!

    ” Sky News cited a spokesman from a children rights lobby group, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSCC), who said the disclosure showed how people at the highest levels of government “simply weren’t thinking about crimes against children.” ( . . . While the were abusing them, themselves!)

  2. Also had that decades-long pedophile from the BBC, Jimmy Savile, who was the darling of Margaret Thatcher. She seemed to favor pedophiles. She was friendly with evil people and liked the Croats, but hated the Serbs.

  3. Perhaps, this is why us Brits are as we are, perverted and masochistic. No greater nation has ever committed such acts of cruelty among its very own, even today. Hell, how did anyone think we got the practice when we went out so called, “Exploring?” The No. 1 rule to know about us Brits is we are all well beyond just kink and S&M in most respects (Wicked sexual Role Players). Our history of evolution carries many dark pasts, some still hidden. The children is nothing new or news as there have been likewise stories that have surfaced long before with abuse by people of trust and authority. Also, keep in mind that since the reign of the queen with a total shift in power & liberties for women the last 50 plus years, the problem has simply, exploded to include all LGBT out into the open and soon, the others will all emerge secured by a constitutional right to be more than just a nation of catholics & queers!
    (Sir Elton John said it best, “Behind Every Man is another good Lad,” lest we never forget). Britain summed up!
