Tom Watson MP is of course a political bruiser... he doesn't care who gets hurt

Thought-provoking, indeed deeply disturbing report by Cathy Newman on Channel 4 News about how Tom Watson MP (now Deputy Leader of the Labour Party) may have corrupted the enquiry into Westminster child abuse: (today's programme will be up later - for some reason Channel 4 doesn't have the technical ability to put repeats up as soon as they finish broadcasting, perhaps it is against union rules).

Tom Watson MP is of course a political bruiser.  He doesn't care who gets hurt, so long as he can score his political points.  But this time he may have gone too far. 

Using the child abuse enquiry as a political weapon represents a second violation of the victims, especially as Tom Watson's accusations have been reported as just mischief-making and without foundation.  Perhaps Mr Watson should be arrested for wasting police time.  Certainly Mr Watson should apologise to those people he has wrongly accused.

And I do not see how Tom Watson's informant in the false accusations can remain a member of the Goddard Enquiry.
