I am still banned from several prominent websites because I have been pointing out the ties between Harriet Harman and Patricia Hewitt on the one hand, and the Paedophile Information Exchange on the other, for something like 15 years.
The media always knew about them. But they chose to ignore them until they needed to distract attention from Patrick Rock.
For several months, Tom Watson's campaign against child abuse in high places made him a hero to the papers and websites that now howl him down.
But then it came close to the Thatcher Government and to the Leaderene's own court, which was an astonishing nest of pederasty, as was widely understood at the time, to the point of making it into Our Friends in the North and the original House of Cards trilogy.
Suddenly, it was all "a witch hunt", and every sinew had to be strained in order to shut it down. That process is very much ongoing.
A lot of my friends voted for Watson and now wish that they hadn't. But I still think that he and Jeremy Corbyn balance each other well. I cannot see the criticism of Corbyn in Watson's speech this week.
And I am damned if I am going to sit by and let his head be handed on a plate to the protectors of Sir Leon Brittan, Sir Jimmy Savile, Sir Peter Morrison, Sir Cyril Smith, Sir Laurens van der Post, and the woman who knighted the lot of them.
