Lord Steel has proven himself a disgrace; he should be expelled from public life
Lord Steel should be ashamed of himself. He should also be expelled from the House of Lords.
That this former Liberal leader now admits to having known about the crimes of the “perverted brute” paedophile Sir Cyril Smith MP is an outrage and that he did nothing is frankly disgusting. If he had acted, innocent people could have spared the terrible abuse they suffered and a criminal could have been brought to justice.
Now, with news that the Liberal Democrats have suspended him, we have progress, but this is not enough. Lord Steel must go and he must go now.
