Margaret Thatcher decided to award a knighthood to a suspected child abuser MP despite being aware of the allegations against him, an inquiry has heard.

The honour for then Rochdale MP Cyril Smith allowed him to continue to exploit his victims because he used the title to maintain ties with children’s organisations, investigators said.

The revelation came as the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse heard witness statements as part of its probe into how Smith was allegedly able to abuse young boys at Cambridge House hostel and Knowl View residential school in Rochdale.

  1. The woman seemed to have a soft spot for abusers. She had that Jimmy Savile over for dinner more than once.

Trump offers to ‘compare IQ tests’ with Tillerson after ‘moron’ report

President Trump in a new interview offered to compare IQ tests with Rex Tillerson after reports that the secretary of State had called him a “moron.”

“I think it’s fake news, but if he did that, I guess we’ll have to compare IQ tests,” Trump told Forbes in an interview published Tuesday.

“And I can tell you who is going to win.”

Oh boy where to start. Well, by getting popcorn, but besides that.

The President of the United States just told the world he thinks he is smarter than his own Secretary of State in response to something he claims never happened.

I guess the very fact that Trump offers this “contest” already shows that he is, indeed, a moron. Because only a moron would not realize that if he “won” this, it would demonstrate, at most, that Tillerson is a bigger moron.

And given the fact that Tillerson hasn’t quit yet, that’s a likely conclusion even without doing the actual tests…

  1. The jokes.. they write themselves…

    “My doctor says my IQ is 150 over 110”

    “I have 20-20 IQ”

    “Look I scored a 90. That’s an A.”

    It’d be like the Voight-Kampff test in Blade Runner with Donald getting irrationally angry at the questions, because he didn’t understand them. He’ll probably blow up at “Describe in single words, only the good things that come into your mind about your mother.”

  2. Just a sneak peek at what that test would look like…

  3. “Scottish.”
