This is how I responded to a request by BBC1’s Panorama for an interview with me for its programme on the ‘Westminster paedophile network’
I often appear on television and radio in the UK and abroad to talk about – and face questions about – Exaro’s work.

The Programme’s failure to approach the subject with an open mind is evident from its initial intention to have David Aaronvitch present it despite his already having repeatedly dismissed claims about VIP paedophiles as a “Conspiracy Theory”
I do not say that is fatal to your case. But it is a very poor start.
