Ian Liddell-Grainger MP, the Conservative MP for Bridgwater and West Somerset, calls for former Hampshire Chief Constable Andy Marsh to be suspended pending the investigation into his actions surrounding Operation Flamborough.
Ian Liddell-Grainger MP also lifts the lid on the truth about the Child Abuse Scandal at Stanbridge Earls School.
This 30 minute public thrashing of Chief Constable Andy Marsh and Avon & Somerset PCC Mrs Susan Mountstevens is long overdue and must make uncomfortable listening for his Tory colleague Romsey MP Caroline Nokes who, along with Andy Marsh, Simon Hayes and others who hold senior posts at Hampshire County Council, silenced investigations and influenced Operation Flamborough.

It looks like the truth about Stanbridge Earls School is getting closer to coming out, until then it is going to follow certain people around like a bad smell.
They should have dealt with it properly at the time rather than try and cover it up.
I have long believed that the reason for the extensive cover-up over the Stanbridge Earls School child abuse scandal was because a full investigation was going to reveal things about certain people in Romsey that would have ended high profile careers.
Politicians, police officers, teachers and local government employees took the decision to save their own skins and careers rather than get justice for the victims, victims that go back 30 years and more.
Operation Flamborough was about protecting those individuals personal and professional reputations, not about justice.
As Ian Liddell-Grainger MP is now finding out, if you challenge these people and try and expose the truth they will attack you and try and ruin your career instead in the name of injustice.
