Alleged historic Westminster paedophile ring alleged to have killed 8 year old
The alleged Westminster paedophile ring, thought to have been active in the 1970s and 1980s, have been accused of murdering an eight-year-old boy. Scotland Yard are being accused of covering the crime up.
Retired magistrate Vishambar Mehrotra, the father of the boy, recorded a telephone call from a male prostitute claiming that Mr Mehrotra’s son Vishal may have been abducted and taken to a guesthouse, where it is alleged he would have been killed.
He took the recording to the police but alleges they refused to investigate as it would implicate “judges and politicians”. Mr Mehrotra described it as a “huge cover-up”.
Vishal was abducted less than a mile from the now notorious Elm Guest House. A few months after the attack, Mr Mehrotra says a young man he guessed to be in his 20s rang and told him “highly placed” paedophiles had kidnapped his son.
Mr Mehrotra told the Daily Telegraph: “I recorded the whole 15-minute conversation and took it to police. But instead of investigating it, they just pooh-poohed it and I never heard anything about the tape again. The whole thing went cold.
“At that time I trusted the police. But when nothing happened, I became confused and concerned.
“Now it is clear to me that there has been a huge cover up. There is no doubt in my mind.”
Labour will curb tax credits for EU migrants, says shadow works and pensions secretary
Rachel Reeves, the shadow work and pensions secretary, has said the UK social security system “was never designed for the levels of migration we are now seeing”.
She said Labour would extend the time which EU migrants are prevented from claiming out-of-work benefits from three months to two years.
According to Ms Reeves, the cost of paying in-work tax credits to an estimated 252,000 EU migrant households is £1.6billion a year.
The shadow secretary said she would fight the EU commission to get these proposals through.
The announcement comes as the major parties prepare for the general election. Ms Reeves is the MP for Leeds West, a northern seat. Many are now a concern for the Labour party, as some in the North turn to UKIP to represent their views.
Ms Reeves made her announcement to the MailOnline and it is thought it is a way to reconnect with Labour voters on immigration. The hard line, which may be seen as very right wing, may come as a surprise to many.
The news comes after it was revealed migrants contribute more to the economy than they take.
British probe may land on moon - if it can get enough donations
A crowd-funded probe may land on the moon.
A British-led consortium say they're planning on landing a robotic probe on the moon within the next ten years and hope for the project to be funded by the public.
Lunar Mission One needs £500 million to get off the ground. Once on the south pole of the moon, the probe will drill 100 metres down where it will deposit time capsule “disks” of DNA. Donations begin at $100 (£64).
The mission, which would launch in 2024, intends to discover if the moon could support a human colony in the future.
