Labour First’s Tom Dewey, allowed by Labour to stand despite arrest, pleads guilty to making and possessing indecent images of children – including the most vile category
Right-wing former Hackney councillor Thomas Dewey has pleaded guilty at Uxbridge magistrates court to five charges of making and possessing the gravest child abuse images.
Dewey admitted a charge of making or downloading five ‘category A’ images of children, the most serious and vile category, in April last year, as well as charges of making four ‘category B’ images and of making 203 ‘category C’ images.
Dewey was arrested in April last year, yet Keir Starmer’s party – which excuses its purge of left candidates by claiming it only lets candidates to stand who will not cause Labour embarrassment – allowed him to continue his candidacy in the next month’s local elections and did not suspend him.
Dewey’s free pass from the party despite his arrest for paedophilia is far from an exception for the Starmer regime. Among the ‘blind eyes’ or worse turned by the party machine, Redbridge council leader Jas Athwal was allowed to become a Labour parliamentary candidate despite the party’s own lawyer saying he should be investigated over allegations of ‘serious’ sexual assault. MP Neil Coyle was welcomed back into the party by Keir Starmer despite making racist remarks and being found by Parliament to have sexually harassed at least one person.
And the party’s eagerness to get a right-winger into the safe Liverpool seat admirably filled by left-winger Ian Byrne that a local councillor with unanswered allegations of disgraceful anti-disabled ‘concentration camp’ comments was put up to stand against him.
Starmer and his sidekick David Evans also covered up a whistleblower’s allegations of ‘sadistic’ and ‘criminal’ abuse and exploitation of domestic violence victims by a front-bench MP’s staffer who was also his lover – and Starmer kept two other MPs in his Shadow Cabinet despite them being investigated for sexual harassment.
Dewey will be sentenced as Isleworth Crown Court on 15 August.
