In response to Andrew Tettenborn: The child abuse inquiry – four years old and still going nowhere, J King wrote:
This limitless enquiry that includes all those groups that have already been investigated and understood, and publicly shamed or prosecuted where possible, such as the clergy, RC Church, religious orders, BBC and public schools, was launched by Mrs May at precisely the point that Westminster came into focus as the next place of shocking sex abuse allegations. This inquiry was surely designed as a massive smokescreen, a cover-up, a hugely expensive distraction routine, erected on the basis that ‘we can’t possibly allow public faith in our institutions of democracy to be damaged’. It was never intended to be successful, to discover anything new, indeed quite the contrary. Hence the absurd terms of reference and stream of VIPs and top lawyers entering and swiftly exiting its leadership. Hence too it starting its proceedings by dragging the RC church through the mud again, with material we are all well aware of, so we all become bored and switch off. At the same time as all this, Westminster massively accelerated the approval and encouragement of a range of laws and social experiments designed to obscure traditional differences between right and wrong in the domain of sex and gender, and to silence anyone who draws attention to the difference. Just how confused does the state want children and adults to be about sex and gender? And more to the point, why? It seems our political elite have much they consciously, or perhaps unconsciously, feel the need to hide from the electorate. And they do so at gargantuan expense to the taxpayer.
