We're talking 36,000 records lost, destroyed or missing - plus 278,000 deliberately destroyed!

The first guardian link ( http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/jul/05/lost-child-abuse-files-home-office ) : |
"The Home Office's permanent secretary, Mark Sedwill, admitted, however, that a further 114 documents relevant to allegations of child abuse were missing from the department's records. That discovery was made last year by an independent review into information received about organised child sex abuse but was not published in its report. Sedwill told Vaz the missing documents were some of the 36,000 records which officials presumed were lost, destroyed or missing. They were not part of the 278,000 documents the Home Office destroyed as part of its "retention and destruction" policy. However, Sedwill told Vaz in a letter published on Saturday that the department had found "no evidence of the inappropriate removal or destruction of material"."
Of course we have to remember that MI5 and MI6 need to ensure that their victims' crimes are not exposed otherwise their "levers" are worthless. And of course they need stuff to trade with our US friends after all. It's all for the greater good!
