MP Tom Watson has already suggested in the House of Commons that a powerful paedophile network may have operated in Britain, protected by its connections to Parliament and Downing Street.
Writing in a shocking blog post published yesterday, he said in the 10 days since he raised the issue he has been contacted by more than 50 people who have talked of wrongdoing – in some cases "so heinous it made me cry" – as well as "mysterious early deaths, disappeared children, suspicious fires, intimidation and threats".
