    UK – Now generations may be spared torment so many of us endured: An abuse survivor who gave evidence to independent inquiry says report is a turning point

    “….If the Government acts on its recommendations, future generations of children will be spared the torment we suffered and every day of the long inquiry, chaired by Professor Alexis Jay – not to mention the £186million it has cost – will have been worth it.
    The inquiry was set up to look into the history of child abuse in schools, hospitals, football clubs and other institutions. Some greeted it with scepticism: post Jimmy Savile, what else did we need to know? Boris Johnson, for example, who was also at Ashdown House ‘prep’ when it was riddled with paedophiles, said he believed such inquiries were utterly pointless.”
