Cyril Smith MP: Part of a paedophile ring?
Pop stars and politicians were part of secret paedophile ring which placed coded adverts in magazines, it has been alleged.
Metropolitan Police detectives are gearing up for a series of arrests relating to a VIP child sex abuse ring named “Spartacus”.
Officers suspect that members of the ring, including pop stars, a bishop, a Soviet spy and a top politician, met at Elm Guesthouse in Barnes, southwest London.
Police have interviewed 12 alleged victims over claims that teenage boys were abused there during the 1980s, reported the Daily Express. The investigation formed part of Operation Ferndown, triggered by allegations by Tom Watson MP at Prime Minister’s Questions.
The deceased Liberal Democrat MP for Rochdale, Cyril Smith, reportedly met and abused teenage rent boys at Elm Guesthouse. Last year a plaque dedicated to Smith in Rochdale was removed after two men claimed they were abused by the larger-than-life politician at a hostel which he founded.
