A political figure in the UK has been asked in for questioning in the in relation to historical child sex allegations involving London care homes.
The name of the individual has not been released and he has not been charged but is believed to have been in a held a senior position in the British Government and was a major figure in his political party.
The individual was also, connected to a number of high profile music figures and his arrest under caution will shock the UK political establishment.
It is understood that the individual denies all claims of historical abuse.
The allegations and interrogations under caution has not been publicised and no name has been released as is standard, but it comes as Paul Gambaccini, the BBC Radio presenter, is released from all threat of charges, after being arrested some months ago.
Gambaccini has long protested his innocence and now the Metropolitan Police say that he will not face any charges.
Another man, who identity has not been released will also not face charges relating to complaints made by adults claiming abuse as teenagers, the Metropolitan Police confirmed.
The force said that the alleged victims would be informed of the situation and the reasons why matters would not proceed any further.
While the wagons now circle around senior political figures who were allegedly involved in abuse or helped cover it up, rumours close to the child abuse investigation suggest that a huge name in music is also in the frame for child abuse allegations.
“Nearly, eveyr key figure of a certain generation has been targeted and if its sex with boys then this man is certainly in the frame”, one entertainment insider told the Sunday World.
The gates have opened in relation to child sex abuse allegations but there much more to come, he said, wishing to preserve his identity.
The political figure has been not arrested and presented himself to Police by appointment under the same controversial arrangements that Rolf Harris was initially engaged with by the Metropolitan Police.
The ramifications from this, should it proceed to charges, is expected to be of earthquake proportions in the Westminster village.
A former senior policeman who was involved in one of the early investigations into abuse by political figures has said to the Sunday World that “political interference certainly impeded investigations of political figures”.
He is reserving a great deal of his testimony and evidence for a judicial inquiry that has been set up to investigate the potential involvement of establishment figures and alleged cover up by their associates and establishment friends

Police Will Be Able To Read Everyone’s Internet Search History Under New Plan
UK Police are asking the government for new surveillance powers to be able to view the Internet search history of every single person in the country.
Richard Berry, the National Police Chiefs’ Council spokesman told The Guardian that “We want to police by consent, and we want to ensure that privacy safeguards are in place. But we need to balance this with the needs of the vulnerable and the victims. We essentially need the ‘who, where, when and what’ of any communication – who initiated it, where were they and when did it happened. And a little bit of the ‘what’, were they on Facebook, or a banking site, or an illegal child-abuse image-sharing website?”
“Five years ago, [a suspect] could have physically walked into a bank and carried out a transaction. We could have put a surveillance team on that but now, most of it is done online. We just want to know about the visit,” he added.
It is likely that police are already looking at your online activity, but just want the power to do it legally. As we learned from whistleblower Edward Snowden, governments are very interested what their citizens are doing online, and they do have the technology to spy on every telephone call and Internet communication.
Police in the UK have been attempting to reach for these powers through legislation for years, but they have been blocked on multiple occasions. This new effort proves that they will not be giving up on getting legal permission for their spying programs.
MP David Davis told The Guardian “It’s extraordinary they’re asking for this again, they are overreaching and there is no proven need to retain such data for a year.”
Home Secretary Theresa May will announce the specifics of the plan during a meeting about the Government’s new surveillance bill in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
“I’ve said many times before that it is not possible to debate the balance between privacy and security, including the rights and wrongs of intrusive powers and the oversight arrangements that govern them without also considering the threats that we face as a country,” May said.
“They include not just terrorism from overseas and home-grown in the UK, but also industrial, military and state espionage.They include not just organized criminality, but also the proliferation of once physical crimes online, such as child sexual exploitation. And the technological challenges that that brings. In the face of such threats we have a duty to ensure that the agencies whose job it is to keep us safe have the powers they need to do the job,” she added.
