Pillar of the establishment, Keith Vaz, has just resigned his position after being caught paying rent boys to have sex with him in his £2 million North London home.
After the recent “Brexit” coup d’état the May junta has decided to do some housecleaning and give new home secretary Amber Rudd the wiggle room her status demands.
Vaz, as Chairmen of the Home Affairs Select Committee, wielded enormous influence overseeing current Prime Minister Theresa May’s paedophile cover-ups throughout her 6 years as Home Secretary.
Midlands based researchers and disability rights campaigners first informed me of the wide reaching implications of having Vaz chair the home affairs select committee which was particularly lacklustre in its desire to investigate or protect vulnerable young people from Child Sexual Abuse.
It has long been speculated that there was dirt on Vaz. His defence of Greville Janner in 1992 showed he kept dubious company.
Many find it suspicious that he was a Council solicitor for Margaret Hodge (another Blairite former chair of a sensitive Select Committee) during her controversial time at Islington and at Richmond council during the period of much paedophile activity at Elm House, Barnes.
A former Minister for Europe, perhaps his strongly pro-European views counted against him.
Although Amber Rudd campaigned for Remain she bears all the hallmarks of the pragmatist — more so even than Vaz.
Either way, time has been called on Vaz’s tenure. There must be more dirt on him. I wonder when or if it will come out.
Prepare for speculation on which media-friendly MP will now be brought in next — how much for Chuka Ummuna?
