Yeah, dont know what to make of the allegations. Id like to say there is no truth in it, but in truth there was so much of it in establishment figures in the postwar period its difficult to know where truth and fiction begin.
Its worth relating oddity in the British Army was seemingly encouraged strange behaviour in the interwar period. I gather Orde Windgate was a keen nudist and Zionist, and JC Fuller was a fully paid up member of Aliester Crowleys Satanist group. So looked at like that.....
Lets not forget Monty
But let us also not forget how Monty was able to keep his urges under control.
You know, Im not sure if I buy it or not. Repressed, yes, but that goes with being English. Gay, well possibly that was just the result of a private education rather than any personal sexual proclivity. Anyway, Monty was probably too busy chasing Rommel around the Western Desert to go potholing.
Its an interesting thing, I learned somewhere that the man who crowned Queen Elizabeth was apparently, a repressed homosexual. Though reading the Wiki entry, he was also not against the use of nuclear weapons, so he was clearly a good egg that didnt mind upsetting people.
Ill going to be fair to Slim and say case unproven. They are disturbing allegations and probably it would be well that they properly investigated it, if only for his reputation, for good or ill. There has been a LOT of investigations of the great and the good in Britain, and its easy to see such things can happen and are and were covered up. Its also easy to see the example of Former Prime Minister Heath whom had similar allegations put against him, which were later proved fairly conclusively to be false.
The £1 million police investigation into allegations that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile is being wound up amid claims it has found no evidence to justify tarnishing the former prime minister’s reputation.
Private investigators hired by police to help conduct the inquiry have been told contracts are not being renewed, according to sources.
The inquiry, codenamed Operation Conifer, will be closed in the coming weeks, but the report on its findings will remain confidential.
That comes after the police, only the month before, stated they were absolutely certain that he was.
The police chief investigating claims that Sir Edward Heath was a paedophile is convinced the allegations are ‘120 per cent’ genuine, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
More than 30 people have come forward with claims of sexual abuse by the former Conservative Prime Minister, according to well-placed sources.
And they are said to have given ‘strikingly similar’ accounts of incidents to Wiltshire Police – even though the individuals are not known to each other.
The Mail on Sunday has been told that Wiltshire Chief Constable Mike Veale regards the allegations as ‘totally convincing’, and plans to publish a report in June.
Detectives have established that, contrary to claims that Sir Edward could not have committed the crimes as he ‘never drove a car’ and ‘always’ had a police driver with him, he did drive – and did have a car.
They have photographic evidence that shows he is a driver, and have established that he had a driving licence. He also bought a Rover 2000 after being deposed as Tory leader by Margaret Thatcher in 1975, when he was 58.
Friends of Sir Edward insisted that the Wiltshire police inquiry had found no evidence to implicate the Conservative politician.
and just when you think it was all starting to sound a bit convincing,
'Allegations that Sir Edward was involved in satanic orgies have been dismissed as fantasy by an expert asked to review the case.'
At which point you have to wonder how it all got as far as it did. Far too many policemen were trying to make their careers based on evidence that didnt really exist.
