The Year Of The Paedophile

I'm going to call it now, but I think 2013 will be the unofficial year of the paedophile, in the UK at least. With yet another TV celebrity caught in the net that is Operation Yewtree, it seems likely that the entire UK TV establishment has been shaken like a ripe fruit tree and the harvest has been bountiful. Sadly it's a harvest of sexual deviants.

But I can't help but think that if the powers that be had setup a similar operation looking into the Catholic church in the UK the harvest would have produced a bumper crop this year. I can understand looking into Jimmy Savile, although not really surprised they waited until he was dead, but that is one guy who was thought to be a suspicious character, heavily insinuated in rumour. But the Catholic church is bulging with child molesters and has official policy to, not only, cover this up but to assist in relocating these monsters around the UK thus enabling them to predate on children again.

In fact it would appear that the furore surrounding the, presumably still ongoing, disgusting revelations about the Catholic church's behaviour has completely vanished from the UK media and, by extension, the public consciousness.

Not that there was a great deal of coverage regarding the Catholic church's policy of dealing with criminals within it's own ranks.

To borrow a phrase from the late, great Christopher Hitchens "you can get away with the most extraordinary offenses to morality and to truth in this country if you’ll just get yourself called Reverend".

And he is still not wrong.
