UKIP members have launched a petition calling on Harriet Harman MP to resign following allegations of links to the Paedophile Information Exchange in the 1970s. The allegations relate to her time at the National Council for Civil Liberties, when PIE was affiliated to the body.
The petition reads: “After maintaining a wall of silence since the story broke about her former affiliation to the pro paedophile rights group – The Paedophile Information Exchange – Harriet Harman MP has finally come clean and said she regrets her former affiliation.
“In a Newsnight interview on the 24th February, Harriet Harman admitted that the Paedophile Information Exchange was affiliated to her former employer, the National Council for Civil Liberties. She has refused to admit that allowing PIE to affiliate was an error of judgement. She has also shown no contrition for the error, and has refused to apologise.
“We the undersigned believe that this demonstrates a complete lack of judgement in such a crucial area of children’s welfare, and that she therefore should immediately resign from Parliament.”
