​Scotland Yard spent nearly £5m on three child abuse inquiries in 2015

Scotland Yard has spent nearly £5m this year on three separate investigations into allegations of historical child sexual abuse by celebrities and politicians, the Guardian can disclose.
The Metropolitan police spent nearly £2m this year on its Operation Midland inquiry into claims that a so-called Westminster paedophile ring murdered three boys in the 70s and 80s.
The investigation, based on the claims of one key witness known only as Nick, was brought under the control of a new umbrella inquiry in October after failing to uncover evidence that key establishment figures were involved.
The cost of Operation Midland was revealed in a freedom of information request by the Guardian which also found that Operation Yewtree, the inquiry into sexual abuse by Jimmy Savile and others, is costing £2.2m a year.
A third operation, Fairbank, an umbrella inquiry that is considering whether to launch full-scale investigations into specific allegations, costs £550,000 a year. In total, 83 members of police staff were working on the three inquiries as of 29 September, Scotland Yard said in its response to the FoI request.
The disclosure of the £5m-a-year price of the inquiries prompted Nigel Evans, the Tory MP who was cleared of rape and sexual offences in April 2013, to call for full disclosure of the cost of the investigations, whose “track record is incredibly poor”.
He said: “There is huge competing demands on police time – we were told before the budget how strapped for cash they were – so someone has to be brave enough to look at the way these investigations are being conducted, whether they are being done in the most economically viable way and if not then scale them back.”

While £5m was spent this year on the three inquiries, £10.1m has been spent over four years on Operation Grange, the investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, which was drastically scaled back from 29 to four officers in October. The Home Office funds that investigation from a special grant budget.

I wonder why Madeleine McCann has a 'special' grant budget?

And why more is being spent on her than all the other child abuse victims?

It takes a long time to destroy credible evidence and the "Special Forces"need to be resolute not to leave irrefutable reams of past shenanigans that had been uncovered by reporters, who had sudden mysterious visits, with threats of years of imprisonment, D notices on the publishing of information and the confiscation of their published material.  Why would they need to have gone to these special arrangements of investigations if there is no evidence a bit like the Jeffery Dicken's dossier, they couldn't find, but when a John Mann quickly produced a copy of the alleged dossier, "they had no evidence of" edited redacted files suddenly appeared, hey presto?

What does `special grant budget` mean - perhaps it`s a budget that comes from someone other than the tax-payer, i.e. someone worth many more millions or even billions.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
