Police are investigating a paedophile ring said to include senior politicians and celebrities, after an alleged child abuse victim made shocking claims about drug-fuelled sex parties in Westminster during the 1980s.
Andrew Ash, now 45, said a female former MP and prominent male MP – who have not been named for legal reasons – abused him and several other children as young as 13 while bingeing on cocaine and speed at parties organised by David Smith, Jimmy Savile’s former chauffeur who committed suicide last year on the day he was due to stand trial on child sex abuse charges as part of Operation Yewtree.
Ash told the Sunday Express that he was regularly transported from the care home where he lived in northern England, to sex parties in London. The trafficking was allegedly organised by a paedophile ring that included Savile, his chauffeur Smith and high-profile politicians and businessmen.
Ash has passed the names of his alleged abusers to the Metropolitan Police – and is now demanding justice. He said: “All I want is justice and for the truth to come out because these people have been protected for far too long. What I want to know is why they [the police] haven’t arrested him yet if they have this evidence.”
He continued: “It wasn’t just politicians. There were also a number of celebrities, including Jimmy Savile, who seemed to have a lot of good links to MPs and powerful businessmen. There were usually drugs like cocaine and speed available as well as bottles of champagne.”
Describing the alleged incidence of abuse by the female former MP, Ash said: “She was extremely drunk and was laughing as she did it. I didn’t really know what was going on but the others around her were goading her on. I must have been about 13 years old at the time and felt humiliated.”
Ash claims he was also abused by a senior male MP on several occasions, including one that was filmed. “I remember being filmed with this MP, who was abusing me in a garage of a very prominent building behind a Rolls-Royce. Another politician turned up with a video camera but the man abusing me just smirked and joked, ‘OK, OK, I’ll vote any way you want’ as if he was being blackmailed.”
Ash says the male celebrity member of the paedophile ring would regularly take children to showbiz nightclubs in London’s west end, and that on one occasion: “This particular person invited me and a young girl back to his house where he made us have sex before joining in.”
British and Dutch police are also investigated Ash’s claims that he travelled to Amsterdam with members of the paedophile ring, where he was abused by a paedophile ring that including convicted child killer Sidney Cooke, and was made to film other young boys being abused.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said the force would not comment on the allegations.
A change would be in the best interests of children.
