I think we SHOULD believe victims. If they have been dishonest, then they should be charged and punished severely. And they should be named and shamed.

Operation Midland was launched after claims that boys had been sexually abused by a group of powerful men from politics, the military and law enforcement agencies at locations across southern England and in London in the 1970s and 1980s.
