Vox Political: What Happened to the other 39 Indecent Images Patrick Rock was Caught With?

June 1, 2016

Here’s another Tory scandal on top of a scandal. Yesterday Mike put up a piece reporting the trial of Patrick Rock, the Cameron aid, who was caught and arrested by the rozzers for possession of 59 indecent pictures of children. According to Mike’s article, however, he’s only being charged with possession of 20. So what’s happened to the other 39? Mike reasonably asks if there’s been a stitch up.

Has there been a stitch-up in the child abuse imagery case against Cameron’s aide Patrick Rock?

The article Mike quotes from and links to states that the images are category C. This is the mildest level of child pornography. It states that the children are clothed, but placed in sexualised positions. Mike therefore considers it highly possible that Rock will therefore get off, and the trial would stop as soon as it starts because the evidence against Rock is less than convincing. Rock is claiming that it is no more immoral than Britney Spears performing for her video, Hit Me Baby One More Time, when she was 16.

You are left wondering if the evidence has been altered in order to prevent Rock from going to gaol. The other 39 images could have been quietly ditched, because they were much harder and would have had Rock sent to prison if shown to a court and jury.

On the other hand, there could be a more innocent explanation. It may well be that much of the evidence against Rock was considered too weak on its own to get a conviction against Rock, and so the police have concentrated on using the strongest evidence. Either way it, all looks very suspicious.

The trial should also be the centre of even more attention, coming as it does at the same time there is another investigation of murky events at the Kincora Boys’ home in Northern Ireland in the 1970s and ’80s. This was the centre of a major child abuse scandal, including allegations that the boys were being prostituted out for the sick pleasure of leading Ulster loyalists. And there are strong suspicions that this was also covered up, not just because of the abusers’ membership of the Establishment, but also because of the desire to close ranks amongst the British elite against the Nationalists during the Troubles.

Another Cameron Aide on Child Abuse Charges

January 18, 2015

Mike over at Vox Political reports that another of David Cameron’s aides, Douglas Richard, has been arrested on the charge of raping a 13 year old girl, a charge he strenuously denies. This follows the arrest last year of Patrick Rock for possession of indecent images of children. Rock also denies the charges, and is currently on bail until February 27th. The article’s entitled ‘History repeats itself: ANOTHER Cameron advisor arrested over child sex’, and is at

Both these men are, under British law, innocent until proven guilty. Nevertheless it does appear that there is a deeply unpleasant culture of sexual exploitation and assault at Westminster. Quite apart from the continuing paedophile abuse investigations, which have seen a dossier of 22 MPs passed on to the police, some of whom may have murdered two boys, one Asian, the other White, and a Lambeth council worker, simply for knowing too much about their vile activities, there seems to be a culture of sexual harassment of staff within Westminster itself. Remember the Tory MP, who was arrested last year or so on the charge of raping another man? He was acquitted, yet nevertheless the testimony at the trial showed he persistently groped his male staff. He did, however, have the good grace to back off if his overture proved unwelcome. Have I Got News For You also reported the findings that something like the majority of MPs’ staff at Westminster, mostly male researchers, had also been groped.

As I understand it, this is sexual assault or harassment. Feminists have spent long decades campaigning against the sexual harassment of women in the workplace. This was at one time quite routine, but attitudes have since changed so that it is now much less acceptable. These MPs, however, apparently believe that such assaults against men are perfectly acceptable.

These are powerful men, and no doubt little action is taken against them because of their position as their staff’s employer. Also, their researchers are dedicated to assisting the MP they serve and the wider party. Personal and political loyalty may thus lead many to keep silent and not make a fuss.

It is clear that those MPs, who commit these assaults, feel they have an absolute entitlement to do so. And this sense of entitlement clearly has led others to go much further, into abusing and possibly killing children.

This has to stop now. The MPs guilty of paedophile abuse should be charged and, if found guilty, jailed. And the wider culture of sexual abuse and exploitation amongst MPs should be curtailed and stamped on.
