Credibility, child abuse and Labour politicians

Having failed to dislodge the current head of the Child Abuse Inquiry on grounds of academic standing, personal bias or mismanagement, Labour's Chuka Umunna tries another tack: Alexis Jay cannot be trusted because she knows something about the protection of children. It is clear that Labour wants to destroy the Inquiry by any means, presumably because spinning out untested anecdotes of abuse indefinitely helps their political cause - or perhaps they are afraid that proceedings might unearth allegations against another senior Labour figure of similar status to Lord Janner?

Surely not only Professor Jay's record in handling the Rotherham inquiry but also her bold statements on being appointed to the Lowell Goddard panel last year give assurance enough to victims?

Besides, how can anybody trust someone who faked his identity on social media and possibly concocted his own wikipedia biography?
