    Is it because it is part of an inquiry, that allegedly is about to happen, as in sub-judice? or is that irrelevant?

    Does seem weird that the victims parents apparently agreed to let their 14 year old son go for a sleepover with his new 38 year old 'barrister' friend in London - 1982 was perhaps in some ways a more trusting place but that must still have seemed extremely strange.

    Mainly because it is very old news. Rumours about Morrison have been around for decades.

    This was in The Guardian in 1998

    I don't know and I do wonder whether this was journalistic prompting rather than any real knowledge on the victim's part.

    There are bits of this story that seem highly plausible and bits that sound very hollow notes. The location of where he was abused is one of the latter.

    This does read like Morrison was making a play for a pretty boy seemingly with parental approval and both victim and parents completely misread his intentions. It is quite a long way removed from the "willing" but powerless and corrupted rent boys usually linked with Morrison's name and is closer to date rape (albeit that the boy didn't realise he was on a date).

    The victim was male, so there's nothing for the feminist Twitter mob to get angry about.

    It's alleged so the dead Tory MP is innocent until proven guilty in my eyes. Sickening if true though.

    Calling it 'date rape' between an innocent 14-year old kid and an ageing barrister in political circles with a paedophile history is really a bit much and quite an odd thing to say really.

    On the OP, clearly there does need to be an investigation into the way the police handled this and similar cases. Morrison is dead, but there may be still be detectives alive who perverted the course of justice in this case, presumably because they were got at by the security services.

    It would be good if we had the equivalent of an FBI, who could march into the offices of MI5 and 6 and demand the files and not take no for an answer.

    that would be a complete nightmare; at least with the current arrangements we retain the vestiges of transparency and accountability.

    I don't think we have even the vestiges, which is visibly the case in this saga, which highlights that the security services are acting completely beyond anything remotely approaching 'accountability' if their clients are the politicians who supposedly hold them to account.

    This isn't a kidnapping off the street. It isn't an intimidation of a youth by a person (family member/teacher/social worker/scout master etc) with a position of power over the youth who could therefore reasonably have been expected not to blab.

    Although it is stated that the boy and his family didn't know who he was, Morrison appears to have taken no real step to hide his identity. There is no way this boy could have been "disappeared". He had to be returned to his family. No matter how powerful Morrison thought he was, surely he wouldn't have taken such a risk that he was always planning to return the boy and make a cover up. He couldn't have known whether the parents had connections that could have exposed him.

    If you exclude these possibilities, then Morrison believes the boy is up for it. However, it looks as though the family, boy and parents are complete innocents abroad. It doesn't cross their mind that Morrison is trying to make a conquest. Morrison presumably thinks his motives are obvious. Perhaps in the circles Morrison moved, they were obvious. They weren't obvious to a 14 year old lad in the sticks or his parents. Of course Morrison doesn't stop when it must have been clear to him that the boy was not a willing participant, which is why it is akin to date rape without the lad knowing he was supposed to be on a date at all.

    The point I have kept trying to make on these threads is good conspiracies are narrow conspiracies.

    This doesn't need to involve spooks or even a lot of police officers. A single Metropolitan Police Special Branch Superintendent in cahoots with Morrison could have stopped this stone dead. All it needs is someone with sufficient clout to get a sex assault in London reported to Sussex Police, on to his desk on some pretext or other. The case barely exists in the Sussex records (and most of what does exist is forwarded to London) and never formally exists in London. The Sussex police merely carry messages (innocently) for the Special Branch officer which are a pack of lies.

    It would be good if we had the equivalent of an FBI, who could march into the offices of MI5 and 6 and demand the files and not take no for an answer.
    That is not the generally held view of J Edgar Hoover.
