IICSA accepts Wedger as core participant

In a surprising turn of events yesterday, self-styled whistleblower and ex-MET police officer Jonathan Wedger was granted “core participant” status by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.

Deplorable Dunn to exploit Hampstead kids at conference

Pity the town of Canton, Ohio. Home of the McKinley Presidential Library and the gravesite of U.S. President William McKinley, it also boasts the Pro Football Hall of Fame (well, U.S. football at least) and the First Ladies National Historic Site.
