British lawmaker Tom Watson MP sent shock waves through the country’s political establishment Wednesday, when he asserted in parliament that a former UK prime minister was linked to a “powerful pedophile ring.”
Watson made the assertions during the weekly questions session with Prime Minister David Cameron. In a question to Cameron, Watson said:
“The evidence file used to convict pedophile Peter Righton, if it still exists, contains clear evidence of a widespread pedophile ring.
“One of its members boasts of his links to a senior aide of a former prime minister who says he could smuggle indecent images of children from abroad.
“The leads were not followed up but if the file still exists I want to ensure the Metropolitan police secure the evidence, re-examine it and investigate clear intelligence suggesting a powerful pedophile network linked to parliament and to No 10.”
