Harvey Proctor is considering suing Scotland Yard after being falsely accused of raping, torturing, and murdering young boys

Our thanks to Mike P for this. The start of the piece in the Telegraph:

Harvey Proctor is considering suing Scotland Yard over the “intolerable stress and strain” he was forced to endure during the catastrophic Operation Midland investigation.

The former Tory MP said he had consulted his lawyers following Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe’s grovelling apology for the 18 months of hell he suffered after being falsely accused of raping, torturing and murdering young boys.

The 69-year-old, who lost his job and his home, as a result of the police investigation, said he was not the same person he had been two years ago.

Mr Proctor was finally absolved of any wrongdoing when Sir Richard Henriques published a damning report into the Met’s handing of the VIP child abuse probe last week.

We hope Mr Proctor will bring the case. In June 2014 AVfM published my article on Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, London Police Commissioner to follow feminists’ guidance on how to deal with sexual offence cases.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

    Even though the police have had their fingers burned over the grossly misconceived operation Midland, and Hogan-Howe has acknoweleged this with his
    “grovelling apology ” – doubtless hoping to deflect further consequences – it is just not enough to imply that
    ‘lessons have been learnt’.

    Those further consequencies must now be manifested, and a real penalty extracted, or the ‘lesson’ will have been LOST, and not LEARNT at all.

    The time for ‘gentlemanly
    understandings’ (meaning let’s just forget all about it eh?) has long gone.

    A hot iron has been blatently presented, and it NEEDS to be well and truly struck.

    Furthermore, at the end of the item we learn that the fantasist ‘Nick’ is being considered for further police action for his lies.

    Is this because he is male, whereas a female accuser faces no consequences lest it ‘discourage’ other complainants?

    If you think you detect the foul stench of double standards about this, it’s because you do.

    Officials paid from the public purse might be less inclined to abuse their positions were they to be personally liable for the consequences.
