As alleged paedophile John Stingemore mysteriously dies, it is about time Theresa May finally acted over historic abuse allegations
With the news that John Stingemore, a former children’s home manager accused of historic sex abuse, was found dead on Wednesday, came yet another example of another likely monster evading justice. On this basis, it is time that our hapless Home Secretary Theresa May speeded up the inquiry into historic abuse and it is time that other swiftly ageing high profile alleged paedophiles were investigated before they also manage to kick the bucket.
Stingemore, 72, of St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, stood accused of 12 charges of abuse at the Grafton Close Children’s Home in the 1970s and 1980s but like Jimmy Savile, will now never be proven innocent or guilty of the allegations made against.
Though she seems to spend more of her time shopping for shoes and socialising with the likes of the ‘charitable’ Lady Meyer than anything else, Theresa May has an opportunity to do the decent thing. It is time she used her powers to bring the most powerful abusers to justice.

Dangerous liaisons and executive decisions, they would rather bury their heads in the sand,and hope the problem goes away, assuming that the public have short and long term memory loss. Crown Court Judges serving sex offenders with lenient sentences reflects that something is rotten in our state. He that makes and enforces the laws don’t necessarily follow or abide by them. Do what I say, but don’t dare do what I do.
He’s got a look of that nutty con artist and ex-jailbird Thomas McLoughlin. Just thinner.
Thomas McLoughlin is guilty of deception and small time fraud, he failed to pull of the crime of the century. Thomas is not a sex offender, so why compare him to sexual predators? You are deliberately attempting to play sexual offences down……
Don’t play down McLoughlin’s crimes either. He has done terrible things to many people.
Thomas Mcloughlin is a hopeless crook with a glass jaw, he was a nuisance and confidence trickster. He is not Al Capone, Dillinger or even our own notorious Charles Bronson. Get my drift. Thomas is irrelevant.
He is where he belongs………. BURNING IN HELL.
Instead of worrying about dead people who nobody can do anything about why doesn’t The Steeples Times do the right thing and support the Find Madeleine campaign? Dear Gerry and Kate McCann need to get their beloved daughter returned to their arms in 2015 and it is time that you supported them.
Gillian Trott- This is the deal, as soon as Theresa May does the decent thing, as Mr Steeples suggests above, I pledge to donate handsomely to your cause.
If she is still alive, and found, I would very much hope she wasn’t returned to her parents, who went on holiday with 3 children and came back with only 2. At best shocking neglect, at worst something very dark indeed
Theresa May works for the royals not the man in the street! So what chance is there of solving the paedophile problem in the UK.
Another Pedo conveniently dies before the talks to much?!
