Thanks for keeping an eye on this. I'm not sure if he connects to the larger story or is just a one-off... but a serious development.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) says the former Liberal MP Cyril Smith should have been prosecuted for child abuse.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/today/hi/today/newsid_9773000/9773560.stm

Police say Sir Cyril, a former MP for Rochdale, was a sex abuser of boys in the late 1960s.
Three times the then prosecuting authorities received information about Smith and three times they said they could or would do nothing.

PS. I hope forth time they would conclude that some people are involved in covering this case

Cant my experience is that such cases are always part of broader story, we will see what will be found although in this particular case many institutions are already lost their credibility.

"The failure to charge Sir Cyril Smith with sex abuse means "justice has been cheated", a solicitor representing one of his alleged victims has said."

Yes, he's the 2nd prominent Brit to be accused after his death (along with Jimmy Savile)... although he's a liberal MP and not a Tory (although there's certainly enough filth to spread across the political spectrum).

Lord McAlpine, who was named, and then those accusations were "withdrawn" so now he's the "falsely accused" Lord McAlpine -- he's a Tory/conservative MP, so the Sir Cyril connection doesn't seem to fit neatly in the expanding fact pattern in the UK...

But as you say, these things are not in isolation, and news is moving fast these days, so it's hard to say how this might fit into a larger story.

We will all stay tuned, and thanks for posting the news here.

There are more news about Sir Cyril Smith:
"There is little doubt that former Rochdale MP Sir Cyril Smith raped some of his victims"
