For a considerable period now The Steeple Times has lamented the failure of the Metropolitan Police to allocate ample resources to Operation Fernbridge and with the revelation that Lord Brittan was questioned regarding an unconnected alleged rape in the 1970s, we again urge the establishment to take historic abuse allegations against well known political figures seriously.
