Operation Hydrant: 300 celebs, Royals and politicians included in list of 2,220 child abuse suspects

The number of suspects being investigated over historical child abuse allegations now stands at more than 2,220, while 302 of which are described as "persons of public prominence". The figures were released as part of Operation Hydrant, the inquiry set up by the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) in June 2014.

Out of the 2,228 alleged offenders, 286 are dead and 1,217 are offenders alleged to have committed crimes in institutions such as schools, medical establishments and children's homes. The number of suspects has risen by more than 800 since the NPCC last gave an update on Operation Hydrant in May.

Of the 302 alleged offenders classified as persons of public prominence, 147 come from the world of TV, film and radio and 99 are listed as politicians both on a national and local level. There are also 39 from the music industry and 17 from the world of sport.

There are now 761 institutions being examined as part of Operation Hydrant – more than double the amount from May.

This include:

288 schools
204 children's homes
86 religious institutions
39 medical establishments
25 prisons / young offenders institutes
22 sports venues
10 institutions in communities (youth clubs, community centres, etc.)
81 other institutions (i.e., military, places of entertainment, guest houses)
6 institutions classified as "unknown" (Including Royal Palace's) 

Norfolk chief constable Simon Bailey, the NPCC's lead on child protection, spoke at a conference regarding Operation Hydrant on how police forces across the country could improve child abuse investigations prior to the release of the latest figures.

He said: "It is important that victims continue to have the confidence to come forward and report child sexual abuse," reported the BBC. "However, while there has been much public focus on those investigations falling under the remit of Operation Hydrant, it is important to remember that the majority of victims are abused by family members or friends.

"By the time police are involved, it is too late, and a child has become a victim. There is, therefore, an important role to be played by wider society, not just by the police, in spotting the signs and achieving early interventions to prevent child sexual abuse before it happens."

Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.

The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.

A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
