Another month, another beacon of the establishment tied to child abuse.

Scotland Yard tonight launched a full investigation into allegations that Conservative politicians were members of a paedophile ring which abused children in care the 1980s.

Operation Fernbridge will centre on the alleged historic sexual abuse of children at Elm Guest House, in Rocks Lane, a suburban street in Barnes, south-west London.

Residents of a nearby care home run by Richmond Council claim they were sexually assaulted at the property by a network of prominent individuals, including Tory MPs, who used their connections to escape justice.

We have too much in common with the UK sometimes. And the modern Tories are sticking to an only slightly less repellant but similar theme.

But yet another instance of how conservatives saying liberals are undermining values is just a sad and tragic case of projection.
