Margaret Thatcher knew paedophile Tory's sick secret but STILL secured him a knighthood

for knighthoods
Margaret Thatcher secured a knighthood for a top Tory despite being warned of claims that he had held sex parties with under-age boys.

Mrs Thatcher’s former police bodyguard says he passed on allegations about Peter Morrison to the Tory prime minister in 1986.

Former deputy party chairman Morrison is now widely suspected of being a child-sex pervert.

Just four years after the warning, Mrs Thatcher personally recommended Morrison for a knighthood.

Documents obtained under Freedom of Information show she put him forward to become a Sir in December 1990, days after she resigned as PM.

The honour was conferred on Morrison by the Queen at Buckingham Palace in February 1991.

Labour MP Simon Danczuk , who exposed the Sir Cyril Smith paedophile scandal, said today: “What has become painfully apparent is that people at the top of Government turned a blind eye to appalling sexual abuse by politicians.

“I’ve met someone who alleges he was raped by Morrison and there is widespread anger and disbelief that someone like him could have been protected by the prime minister at the time.”

Other papers reveal Mrs Thatcher also recommended a knighthood for former Tory Home Secretary Leon Brittan in 1989.  (more...)
