Campaigners for a full-scale national inquiry into child-abuse in the UK have been lobbying MP’s for their support via Twitter and other social media sites.
In conjunction with investigative journalists at ExaroNews and Ian Pace, they have successfully garnered the support of well over 100 parliamentarians and the number is growing daily.
Surprisingly, many MP’s have failed to join the call for an over-arching inquiry despite the overwhelming evidence of collusion and cover-ups relating to both the Cyril Smith and Jimmy Savile scandals ( amongst others).
Quite why these elected representatives of the UK populace aren’t willing to fight for justice for abused children is a complete and utter mystery.
One such MP is Falkirk Independent, Eric Joyce.
Joyce has written a scathing article on his blog deriding campaigners efforts and accusing them of being aggressive and potentially causing a McAlpine-style ‘disaster’ by naming historic paedophile-politicians:
He appears to be extremely uncomfortable with the idea that institutionalised VIP paedophile-networks might be investigated and exposed and has instead sought to criticise Exaro and their supporters.
This makes no sense at all.
Or does it?
A brief look at Eric Joyce’s credentials are enough to trigger alarm -bells.
He left the army in 1999 at the rank of major.
2) He was suspended from the Labour Party in 2012 after he was arrested on suspicion of assault, and on 12 March 2012, having pleaded guilty, resigned from the party.
In March 2013 he was once again arrested on suspicion of assault, but not prosecuted. Both incidents took place in a House of Commons bar and were related to alcohol
3) He once served as the PPS to Margaret Hodge MP. Hodge was responsible for the Islington care-home abuse scandal which led to the death of Jason Swift.
She was made Children’s minister by Tony Blair and introduced legislation making it easier for social services to snatch children. Her close friend and confidante is paedophile Peter Mandelson.
4) Joyce was the top-claiming Member of the House of Commons for the 2005–06 Parliamentary session, claiming 174,811 in expenses, of which 62% was for staff and office costs.
After the 2005–06 Parliamentary session he made a public pledge to cut his expenses; during the 2006–07 session he moved down to 11th on the list of MPs’ expenses and allowances, but again rose to the top for 2007 with £187,334.
5) Joyce was the first MP to claim more than 1 million cumulatively in expenses. In October 2007 he claimed 180 for three oil paintings. When asked why he had used taxpayers’ funds in such a way he replied “because they look nice.”
6) In May 2009, tabloids reported Joyce was seeking advice from HM Revenue and Customs regarding £40,000 in unpaid capital gains tax on the sale of his London home, which he had designated as his second home under the Second Homes Allowance scheme.
The house had been sold for a £133,000 profit. When asked what he would do were he asked to pay the overdue tax, Joyce stated he would “suck it and see”
7) The Daily Record on 1 March 2012 reported that Joyce had had a relationship with a seventeen-year-old schoolgirl who had worked for his 2010 general election campaign. The MP, a father of two, had separated from his second wife before the May 2010 election.
Of the alleged affair Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont said: “This is a man who has abused his position of power and authority. I’m disgusted: regardless of any other issues, I think this makes Eric Joyce unfit to stand for the Labour Party.” In response Joyce said he would step down at the next general election.
So you see, Eric Joyce appears to be no more than a thuggish madman who is himself up to his neck in filth of the highest order.
We can only thank God that he didn’t sign the petition.
After all, who the hell would want a low-life like him on board?
