Another VIP politician, Jeremy Thorpe, the former leader of the Liberal Party, who died earlier this week, was reported to the FBI for his "indiscretion" with a "rent boy" it is now reported. Listen to BBC News report HERE (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04wz633). The report proper begins at 2:10.

The below from The Needle:

Jeremy Thorpe And Cyril Smith Cover-Up (http://theneedleblog.wordpress.com/2014/12/05/jeremy-thorpe-and-cyril-smith-cover-up/)

Michael Crick describes how Dominic Carman, son of George Carman QC who successfully defended Thorpe in the murder trial, told him today that only a few weeks before the trial allegations about Cyril Smith were circulating and George Carman QC got onto his legal friends, with Thorpe’s backing, to basically frighten the Fleet street editors into not picking up the Rochdale Alternative Press story.

But we only find out about this once Jeremy Thorpe is safely dead. So, what are we all to deduce from that ?

Bearing in mind that Cyril Smith continued to sexually abuse young boys throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s at least.
