The Huffington Post's report on the Lowell Goddard resignation.

Child Sex Abuse Inquiry Loses THIRD Chair As Dame Lowell Goddard Resigns
It has yet to hold a public hearing.
04/08/2016 19:27 | Updated 56 minutes ago

Jack Sommers Assistant News Editor, Huffington Post UK

The independent inquiry into child sexual abuse has lost its chair, after Dame Lowell Goddard gave Home Secretary Amber Rudd her resignation.

The resignation of the New Zealand judge, who was appointed after two previous chairs had to resign, throws the inquiry into chaos.

The inquiry was set up in 2014 to investigate child sexual abuse, including claims a paedophile ring operated in Westminster in the 1980s.

Earlier on Thursday, she was criticised for having spent 44 days working in New Zealand and Australia - in addition to 30 days of annual leave she was entitled to - in her first year as inquiry chair.

The inquiry has been beset by delays since it was announced.

Dame Lowell Goddard is the third chair of the inquiry to resign

The BBC’s Tom Symonds said the resignation threw the inquiry into “crisis”.

Despite the revelations about the amount of time Goddard spent abroad, investigate journalist Mark Watts said she had threatened to resign before over “interference” from the Home Office in the inquiry.

The inquiry has not yet held any public hearings, though preliminary hearings began in March.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: “I can confirm that Dame Lowell Goddard wrote to me today to offer her resignation as chair of the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse and I have accepted.

“I want to assure everyone with an interest in the inquiry, particularly victims and survivors, that the work of the inquiry will continue without delay and a new chair will be appointed.

“I would like to thank Dame Lowell Goddard for the contribution she has made in setting up the inquiry so that it may continue to go about its vital work.”

In her 32-word letter of resignation, Goddard did not specify the reason for her resignation.

Goddard had written to Rudd: “I regret to advise that I am offering you my resignation as chair of the Independent Inquiry into Institutional child abuse with immediate effect. I trust you will accept this decision.”

In her response, Rudd wrote: “I know that this will have been a difficult decision for you to make, and something you will have carefully considered. I was sorry to receive your letter but I accept your decision.”

Rudd added: “I know how personally committed you have been to ensuring that the inquiry is a success for those at its heart: the survivors and the victims.

“You have consistently demonstrated your desire to leave no stone unturned in order that the voices of those victims might be heard.

“It is a testament to your commitment that you have taken the difficult decision to stand down now, having set the inquiry firmly on course, and allow someone else to lead it through to the end. With regret, I agree that this the right decision.”

Those of us of a certain age will remember Chris Denning as one of the first DJs on Radio 1 but I wouldn't say that he was or became as well known as the others.

Sorry Andrew..Gamble to be fair presents himself as convincing to the casual viewer who drops in....he promoted the idea that the victims need inquirey and we have a duty to make sure they get one...more interesting is Gambles mate(i think they are!)Theresa May....she claimed to have heard rumours something was wrong ... this is what she said in the commons today.....so why didnt she push for more information?

The founder of a children's charity who received a prize from campaigner Esther Rantzen has been jailed for 16 years for child sex offences.
Ronald Bennett, 72, was convicted of five counts of historic sexual abuse which took place in Hampshire and East Anglia in the 1980s following a week-long trial.
Founder of the disbanded Brave Hearts Children's Charity Association, based in Andover, Hampshire, Bennett preyed on young girls and targeted vulnerable families.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/nov/18/child-abuse-survivors-group-withdraws-from-contrived-uk-inquiry

The troubled national inquiry into child abuse has mounted a fightback after a large survivors’ group withdrew from participation, condemning it as a “stage-managed and contrived” investigation.

In a series of television interviews, senior panel member Dru Sharpling said the inquiry would continue. She apologised to hundreds of victims of child abuse in Lambeth children’s homes – the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association – who announced they were pulling out of the proceedings on Friday because it was “failing publicly and tragically”.

But Sharpling insisted the investigations would go on without the group. She said: “The Lambeth investigation will continue. I am very sorry that they have decided to leave. I hope that they will come back, but we will continue to do that work. There is evidence being forwarded to us now which enables us to undertake this inquiry and I hope that, as time goes by, their confidence in the inquiry improves, as others have.”
