Leon Brittan, a former Home Secretary and once Margaret Thatcher’s protégé, has now been named as a suspect in the Westminster pedophile ring.  Since his death in January, an influx of concerns have surfaced about the politician who once had files in his possession containing the names of some of Britain’s elite in a pedophile ring. It has since disappeared, after it was handed by him to the authorities.
Lord Brittan, who was appointed Home Secretary in 1983 as the youngest holder of the title since Winston Churchill, always denied the allegations. At the time of his death, investigations over allegations that he had raped a woman when he was a young man were being conducted, as well as investigations claiming he’d intentionally covered up a dossier that had contained the names of other VIPs, including other politicians. The files were reportedly handed to MP Geoffrey Dickens who in the same year, had accused Brittan of being a pedophile, and were subsequently lost from the Home Office.
Amidst the swirl of allegations, Thatcher has been accused of concealing Sir Peter Hayman’s involvement in the ring as well. Ordering officials not to name the senior diplomat in relation to the pedophile ring, she later re-employed him to lead her political campaigns in the 1990’s. As early as 1978, Hayman was under police investigation after obscene materials were found in a parcel on a London bus. Other pornographic materials were later found at his London address, and connections to the Pedophile Information Exchange were investigated. This confirmed Sir Peter Hayman’s presence, with which he intended to make “contact with adults with whom he could exchange obscene material.” He died in 1992, without a conviction.
