The National Council for Civil Liberties (Liberty) and Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) along with PAL were in the past affiliated to each other together with a number of current high profile individuals

As a bit of background - the values of Liberty are espoused by the following

  • '.. we are a cross party, non-party membership organisation at the heart of the movement for fundamental rights and freedoms in the UK ..'
  • '.. We promote the values of individual human dignity, equal treatment and fairness as the foundations of a democratic society ..'

Therefore the question has to be - how come the NCCL got it so wrong over PIE by lobbying on their behalf for rules that would DENY THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD

Furthermore, if you look at Liberties timeline on their web site, all references to PIE seem to have been conveniently air-brushed out of their history ?

Just to recap on the NCCL submission to Parliament at the time:

'.. Childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult result in no identifiable damage… The real need is a change in the attitude which assumes that all cases of paedophilia result in lasting damage ..'

Now just read the previous paragraph again - yes you understood it correctly

Some of todays high profile people involved with the NCCL at the time of their involvement with PIE were:

  • Patricia Hewitt (General Secretary) - later Labour Party Heath Secretary, also implicated in the Expenses Scandal and the Cash For Influence Scandal
  • Harriet Harman (Legal Officer)
  • Jack Dromey - became Harriet Harmans husband

Even now there are uncomfortable links with Liberty and ARK Academy Schools (Dutrox Scandal - Belgium lates 1990's) and Sally Morgan Ofsted Chair Ofsted chair Sally Morgan - husband with Liberty (NCCL)

Finally let us not forget that Shami Chakrabati (The real scandal at the LSE) has also been involved in an unsavoury situation with the LSE. Whilst we are on the LSE have a look at Helen Reece - sex offenders should be able to adopt
