PIE & Chimps
The Daily Chimpanzee
Well, the Chimp has firmly got its teeth into this Harman PIE news story by looks of things, although it isn’t what you would call news to those who read the Alternative media.
Anyway, it seems now that Hopeless Harry has responded to the Chimps incessant requests for her to answer their questions on hers and her houseboy, Jack Dopey’s involvement with the Paedophile Information Exchange.
And in typical politician fashion, she answered in the only way she knows how… She lied through her back teeth.
I’m now more convinced than ever that her and Jack – already in trouble over another matter – are for the chop. Sadly, it goes without saying that they will be well looked after for taking one for the team… Perverted cunts.
But they still won’t say sorry: Labour’s Harman and Dromey finally break their silence over links to paedophile group
- Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman finally broke silence
- Mounting pressure to explain link to Paedophile Information Exchange
- Came while holding key roles in the National Council for Civil Liberties
- Miss Harman said revelations were ‘politically-motivated smear campaign’

Labour’s deputy leader Harriet Harman finally broke her silence yesterday over her links with a paedophile group.
Miss Harman, her MP husband Jack Dromey, and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt have been under mounting pressure to explain the connections to the Paedophile Information Exchange while holding key roles in the National Council for Civil Liberties.
The pressure group granted ‘affiliate’ status to PIE, a notorious group of predatory paedophiles.
The BBC was accused yesterday of keeping the growing paedophilia scandal from the airwaves in order to protect the Labour Party
Last night Miss Harman dismissed the revelations as a ‘politically-motivated smear campaign’ and offered no apology over the NCCL’s extraordinary relationship with the PIE.
That is despite the fact that Shami Chakrabarti, current director of Liberty – the new name for NCCL – has previously issued an apology for the links with PIE.
In a statement Miss Harman said: ‘They have accused me of being an apologist for child sex abuse, of supporting a vile paedophile organisation, of having a relaxed attitude to paedophilia and of watering down child pornography laws.
- Not one hint of remorse: Harman and Dromey’s statements, and the Mail’s replies
- Harman wasn’t so quiet on Savile scandal: Deputy Labour leader toured TV and radio stations
- How much longer can paedophilia apologists stay silent? Even Left demands answers from senior Labour trio over links to child sex group
- BBC’s censorship of paedophilia scandal ‘reveals its left-wing bias’: Corporation accused of refusing to report story to protect the Labour party
‘These are horrific allegations and I strongly deny all of them.’
The Mail discovered that during the 1970s and 80s, Miss Hewitt described PIE – granted formal ‘affiliate’ status from 1975 to the mid-Eighties – in glowing terms as ‘a campaigning/counselling group for adults attracted to children’.
NCCL archives showed how the pressure group lobbied Parliament for the age of sexual consent to be cut to ten if the child consented and ‘understood the nature of the act’. It also called for incest to be legalised in what one MP called a ‘Lolita’s charter’.
Silence: Until now Miss Harman has said only that the Mail’s story is ‘untrue and ridiculous’ but has refused to answer any questions, as have her husband, Jack Dromey (pictured), and their Labour colleague Patricia Hewitt
The NCCL – now the respected Liberty – filed a submission to Parliament claiming that ‘childhood sexual experiences, willingly engaged in, with an adult, result in no identifiable damage’.
Miss Harman, as NCCL legal officer, tried to water down child pornography laws. NCCL lawyers acted for PIE members who were questioned by police over their disgusting behaviour.
Former health secretary Patricia Hewitt was general secretary of the NCCL from 1974-83
Miss Hewitt was general secretary of the NCCL from 1974-83, Miss Harman was a newly qualified solicitor when she became its legal officer in 1978 until 1982, when she entered Parliament. Mr Dromey sat on the NCCL executive committee for almost a decade from 1970 to 1979.
Police are investigating PIE as part of Operation Fernbridge, launched after the Jimmy Savile affair, with one source saying there is evidence that PIE members were abusing children ‘on an industrial scale’.
The Home Office is also carrying out a ‘thorough, independent investigation’ into shocking claims that the Labour government of the 1970s may have helped finance the notorious group.
Ever since December, when The Mail first investigated the NCCL’s links to the paedophile lobby, we have been sending detailed questions to Miss Harman, Miss Hewitt and Mr Dromey about their links to PIE and whether they now regret supporting such a group. Miss Hewitt has still to respond but Miss Harman – after initially dismissing the story as ‘untrue and ridiculous’ – and her husband finally issued a statement via the Labour Party yesterday.
Miss Harman denied allegations that she supported lowering the age of consent to ten or opposed the law on incest – despite the Mail investigation never having made such a claim. Instead this newspaper stated that the NCCL, which she joined in 1978, had controversially lobbied on these issues two years earlier.
She also said that an allegation that she sought in 1978 to water down a proposed ban on child pornography was untrue.
Responding to the NCCL’s decision to grant ‘affiliate’s status to the notorious paedophile group, Miss Harman said: ‘The Mail have tried to make me guilty by way of guilt by association.
‘When I was at NCCL there were around 6,000 members and nearly 1,000 affiliated organisations of which PIE was one.
‘I was aware that because NCCL opposed censorship and supported gay rights, paedophiles had sought to exploit that and use NCCL as a vehicle to make their arguments. But by the time I came to work for NCCL this vile organisation had already been vigorously challenged within the organisation.’
1978 briefing: The NCCL legal officer Harriet Harman wrote this briefing paper on the Protection of Children Bill, which sought to ban child pornography. She argued that it would lead to an ‘increase in censorship’
Argument: The second page contains a paragraph saying that a picture should not be considered indecent if the model was not harmed
Recommendations: Miss Harman’s briefing went on that the NCCL would argue that the Bill to protect children should be amended
She added: ‘The reason I decided to go to work for NCCL was because I actively supported the work they had done and in particular the work of their women’s rights committee on the Equal Pay Act, on the introduction of the Sex Discrimination Act and for greater protection of victims of domestic violence and against race discrimination.’
Mr Dromey said: ‘During my time on the NCCL executive, I was at the forefront of repeated public condemnations of PIE and their despicable views.
‘The accusations of the Daily Mail are untrue and beneath contempt.’
Labour leader Ed Miliband defended his deputy. He said: ‘Harriet Harman is somebody of huge decency and integrity. I know she has a long and proud record of being on the right side of all of these issues.’ Last night the Mail said: ‘For ten weeks now the Mail has repeatedly asked three leading Labour figures to answer questions about the involvement of the NCCL, a body in which they played leading roles, with a vile paedophile group whose actions are currently being investigated by the police.
‘The belated statements today of Miss Harman and her husband – full of pedantry and obfuscation – failed to answer the Mail’s central points and deny allegations the Mail has not made.
‘More pertinently they have failed to utter a word of contrition or sorrow about the NCCL’s closeness to the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange, an organisation that validated the activities of a monster like Jimmy Savile. Nor do they utter a word of apology to the victims of PIE.
‘In stark contrast, Shami Chakrabarti, the director of Liberty, which took over the NCCL’s mantle, has condemned the historic links with PIE as a “source of continuing disgust and horror”.
‘As for smears, it is a newspaper’s job to ask awkward and controversial questions – questions that in this instance are still awaiting a satisfactory answer.’
