How many times can this kind of thing be brushed aside by the great and the good?

Why on earth would you think anything was 'over' Douglas?

Deep corruption in high places is as old as society itself, it will never ever be over, merely diverted, swept under the carpet, and generally covered up.

That's why it continues.
How come some old boys are judged guilty and some aren't; all without trial? Saville - guilty. Leon Britain - innocent.
Who made those decisions, Atheist?
People like you, Roy.
Atheist - // How come some old boys are judged guilty and some aren't; all without trial? Saville - guilty. Leon Britain - innocent. //

It's that magic word 'evidence'.

Sufficient levels of evidence have to be gathered - if they can in fact be found - in order for a trial to be instigated, and proceed.

Savile - loads of evidence, but dead, so no trial.

Lord Brittan - no evidence, but dead, so no trial.

That's about it.
Atheist - // People like you, Roy. //

Not fair, or accurate Atheist - please see my previous post.
You must try harder when looking down your nose at people, Atheist.

For instance, thicko me would have typed

Savile
Brittan
It'll never be over, especially while we still see some people as "too important" to hassle.

Being rich, powerful, white or male, shouldn't be an automatic licence to be trusted. It's only just started to change, and will take far longer than it should have.
AH, I'm sure you are right.
20.44 Agree with you Pixie, Prince Andrew for a starter.

FYI
// He was associated with a number of Jewish organisations including the Board of Deputies of British Jews, of which he was chairman from 1978 to 1984, and was later prominent in the field of education about the Holocaust.
Beginning in 1991, several allegations of child sexual abuse were made against Janner. Criminal proceedings brought in 2015 were halted by his death in December of that year. //

Phew.

people in religious organisations do seem to get an easier ride. But as for the cops ... they're criticised for pursuing allegations against Brittan and for not pursuing allegations against Janner (both accused by Carl Beech, as I recall). They're damned if they do and damned if they don't.
Question Author
Better all round if they're damned if they do then, jno.
I am not blaming the police for a lack of prosecution against Janner. That decision was made much higher up than the Police.
I would not be surprised if Blair didn’t get the final word.
It is a disgrace that Janner didn’t face justice for his crimes.
The report seems to imply he was protected. Who by, and why, is your guess.
