Now we’re told Cyril Smith got away with abusing children just like Jimmy Savile did.
The tragedy is they were allowed take their secrets to the grave because no one believed their victims.
It’s virtually impossible to put a stop to paedophilia. It’s like a sickness that can’t be cured. And it’s hard to spot; paedophiles don’t wear grubby macs; their disguise is far more cunning. Both Smith and Savile so successfully hid the truth about themselves they managed to get themselves knighthoods.
There is one sure-fire way of identifying them, though. That’s by believing the children who are doing just that.
