Sexual abuse of children
Jonathan Calder draws our attention to the call by 59 MPs for an investigation into the organised sexual abuse of children. This reminds me that the first speech I gave to a Welsh Liberal Democrat conference back in the 1990s was on the subject of the North Wales children's homes and the probability that they had become part of a paedophile network. I am glad to see twenty years later that one by one criminal cases are being brought against alleged abusers. I am also glad to see that Alison Taylor has been vindicated.
