Oh, a ‘conspiracy theory’ is it? The evidence suggests not. Ca-moron’s exercise in damage limitation. -Ed.

  • NSPCC boss Peter Wanless calls the Prime Minister’s comments ‘wrong’
  • National Association for People Abused in Childhood says it’s ‘appalling’
  • Came as the Home Secretary admitted there may have been a cover-up

Campaigners for survivors of child sexual abuse have savaged David Cameron after he called claims of a Home Office paedophile cover-up a ‘conspiracy theory’.

Referring to the findings of a review into allegations of a VIP paedophile ring, the Prime Minister said on the campaign trail in Rochester that ‘conspiracy theorists’ would have to ‘look elsewhere’.

Last night the author of that review flatly called Mr Cameron’s comments ‘wrong’, while the National Association for People Abused in Childhood said his intervention was ‘appalling’.

It seemed to directly contradict an extraordinary admission by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, that there ‘might have been a cover-up’ of an Establishment paedophile ring by her department in the 1980s.

The comments by Mrs May and Mr Cameron came after the publication of a report into how her department handled papers relating to alleged child abusers at Westminster.
