In 1997 , the Conservative MP for Meriden, Iain Mills, was found dead in his flat in Dolphin Square, Pimlico.
Initially there was confusion over the cause of death but Westminster’s creepy coroner Paul Knapman soon recorded a verdict of alcohol poisoning.
Iain Mills, MP, was apparently found with extreme levels of alcohol in his blood and was surrounded by gin bottles.
The media blamed his death on the stress of being a parliamentarian and it was assumed he’d had an alcohol problem for many years.
This was at odds however with members of his local constituency group who insisted he was a teetotaler and only ever drank orange juice during the 20 years they knew him.
His untimely death was soon forgotten and to this day is rarely mentioned, but that might be about to change.
Could it be that Iain Mills MP was aware of the high -level paedophile ring operating in Dolphin Square and this knowledge led to his death?
In 1993, an Early Day Motion was proposed by Ann Winterton MP entitled:
“Availability Of Obscene, Violent And Pornographic Material”
” That this House thanks Superintendent Michael Hames and his colleagues of the Obscene Publications Squad for acceding to the request of Right honourable and honourable Members to be available on 24th and 25th February in the Jubilee Room to provide honourable Members with the opportunity to discuss the difficulties which are experienced in dealing with the shockingly obscene, violent, and pornographic material which is increasingly available in the United Kingdom; expresses its revulsion that this material features the depiction of cruelty and violence towards women, children, and men, that it involves acts of bestiality as well as other acts of extreme depravity; expresses its profound concern that the Obscene Publications Act and associated legislation fails to provide the necessary legal framework for the prosecution of those who produce and disseminate this material; welcomes the acceptance by the Prime Minister that there are great and obvious problems in this area; and invites the Secretary of State for the Home Department to respond to the concern of honourable Members of this House, from all political parties, by undertaking a wide-ranging and thorough departmental review both of the provisions and of the enforcement of the law, and to make it his policy to bring forward proposals for legislation at an early date”
We then note that the EDM was signed by both Iain Mills MP and also Geoffrey Dickens MP.
We now know that Geoffrey Dickens received death threats when he passed a dossier to Leon Brittan outlining allegations of the child-abuse ring.
Isn’t it time the Met looked again at the death of Iain Mills MP?
