Apologists for paedophiles

Harriet HarmanED:  Daily Telegraph journalist Martin Beckford uncovered this in 2009, but it went largely unnoticed

By Guy Adams, Mailonline

How Labour Deputy Harriet Harman, her shadow minister husband and former Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt were all linked to a group lobbying for the right to have sex with children

  • Magpie magazine distributed in the late Seventies to members of PIE
  • PIE is Paedophile Information Exchange – the name of a far-Left lobby group
  • Called for legalisation of child sex and age of consent to be lowered to four
  • Emerged this week Labour government of the time may helped finance the organisation and The Magpie
  • Home Office now ordered a ‘thorough, independent investigation’ into claims
  • Hewitt, Harman and husband Dromey encountered the PIE as young officials in the National Council for Civil Liberties

[…]  For the initials PIE stand for Paedophile Information Exchange. This turns out to be the name of a far-Left lobby group which spent much of the Seventies and early Eighties publicly calling for the legalisation of child sex — and the age of consent to be lowered to four.

Today, PIE has been widely forgotten. But at the time, it achieved prominence for circulating articles by tame psychologists and cod scientists promoting the ‘rights’ of paedophiles.

[…]  ‘The PIE somehow managed to convince feminists and the gay rights lobby that they had shared values and that we all belonged in the same club,’ recalls one feminist writer whose magazine was lobbied for support by the PIE after the Exchange won NCCL affiliation.

‘Anyone who spoke out against them feared being called a “homophobe”, which in Left-wing circles at the time was about the biggest insult anyone could throw at you. So they were invited into the liberal establishment.’

A PIE ‘information’ leaflet published at the time, called Paedophilia: Some Questions And Answers, shows how the organisation had managed to ally its cause to the gay rights movement.

‘Homosexuals are now widely regarded as ordinary, healthy people — a minority, but no more “ill” than the minority who are left-handed,’ it read. ‘There is no reason why paedophilia should not win similar acceptance.’
