Chickens Coming Home to Roost

Chatting to a journalist this morning, I got some of the back story on the paedophile allegations against "top Conservatives", it seems as if the witch-hunt is beginning against "top people" generally, perhaps especially against those who publicly identify themselves with a certain sexual licence. I wasn't quite surprised by some of the names mentioned, many have been involved in minor scandals in the past, but it put a fresh gloss on the, "I am for gay marriage because I am a Conservative" statement of David Cameron.

Amongst Tories, and indeed all of our political and media elite, there has always been the socially conservative, the Tufton Bufton's and blue rinsed with middle-class or respectable working-class moral stance but there has also been a strong strand of Libertarianism, where anything goes. It seems from what I was told that Libertarian chickens are coming home to roost. In part it is a reaction against the amorality of a generation ago.

The Paedophile Information Exchange was defended by people now prominent in the Labour Party as its views were at times echoed by the National Council of Civil Liberties.

Hysterical lobbying by bullying violent minorities always sorts itself out like Mother Nature balances the weather in the long term
