Labour MP Chris Bryant has made a shocking revelation about royal family members covering up sexual abuse by a high ranking member of the clergy.
The Labour MP for Rhondda told an emergency debate on sexual abuse in the House of Commons of a shocking case he was told about when he was a young vicar.
A friend and colleague was suicidal after being raped by a senior churchman. Bryant told the House of Commons that “the senior cleric concerned had a great deal of protection from the establishment, including from certain members in the royal family.”
The senior member of the Church of England has since been prosecuted and jailed, said the Labour MP. Chris Bryant went on to plead: “isn’t the one thing that we must learn from all this is that the best way to protect the institution is actually to protect the victims – put our house in order.”

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
