IN London, we have the names of former politicians, now deceased, named as being linked to the sexual abuse of young boys. Now we are told that documents reveal that a letter written by the head of MI5 in 1986 stated, "the risk of political embarrassment to the Government is rather greater than the security danger". This is a truly shocking revelation.

There is now no doubt that there has been a huge cover-up around this issue.

Among the new documents uncovered by the Cabinet Office include some making reference to Kincora Boys' Home in Belfast.

Surely Her Majesty's Government must now extend the investigation and include the evil that was the abuse at Kincora?
