L to R: Sir Keir Starmer; K. Harvey Proctor

'I dare Starmer to appear with me in public to discuss his time as DPP. I bet he won’t. He won’t even apologise for the pain and suffering he has induced'.

At Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday 19th April, Sir Keir Starmer said:

“The wrecking ball the Tories have taken to criminal justice means that thousands of people who should be in prison aren’t.”

The hypocrisy from that one line is palpable.

If anyone has taken a wrecking ball to the British criminal justice system, it is Sir Keir Starmer.

In one fell swoop, borne out of concern for PR and low rape convictions, Starmer vandalised centuries of British justice by creating a policy that would lead to those who make allegations being automatically believed.

Because of this policy, Carl Beech’s allegations were deemed “credible and true” by the Metropolitan Police Service.

The world believed Lord Edwin Bramall, Sir Edward Heath, Lord Leon Brittan and I were child abusers - that I was a serial child murderer!

However, I consider myself one of the lucky few.

How many victims of this policy have had their lives and reputations ruined? How many languish in prison? How many have committed suicide due to false allegations?

Starmer also declared triumphantly that he had prosecuted “thousands upon thousands of sex offenders” as Director of Public Prosecutions. He did not dare mention how many had been persecuted by his ravaging of a tenet of British justice, which was adopted by the College of Policing led by Sir Tom Winsor and subsequently put into action by the Metropolitan Police Service under the instruction of Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.

Why doesn’t he deign to mention it? Firstly, because he would never acknowledge this dark shadow which hangs over him. Secondly, it is impossible to know the true number of victims of this policy.

In the interest of transparency, I dare Starmer to appear with me in public to discuss his time as DPP. I bet he won’t. He won’t even apologise for the pain and suffering he has induced.

To see Starmer portraying himself in the mother of parliaments as the saviour and upholder of justice is excruciating. Sir Keir is neither fit to be the Leader of His Majesty’s Opposition let alone Prime Minister – the matter is a prospect that should strike the fear of dread through us all.

For party political purposes Starmer has turned the truth inside out. For personal advancement, he seeks to cover up his error and potential professional misconduct. His own perceived strength and overblown persona are indeed his Achilles heel.

As I have said before, I will think about Operation Midland until the day I die. I hope by then Sir Keir will have acknowledged his mistake and apologised to the loved ones of those so needlessly traduced.

If not, I hope that he thinks about the miscarriages of justice and the suffering that he caused until his last breath.
