There have been a large number of inquiries into sexual abuse stories over the decades, with some ongoing.
Many have been flawed in their remit, their conduct, or their conclusions.
We may soon be experiencing inquiry fatigue. Inquiries are long and expensive, and Governments can ignore them. The whole process could be seen as a delaying tactic, waiting for VIPs to die peacefully before their crimes are laid open.

What we need is the political will to actually override the influential figures in police, Westminster, and the security services and actually bring the VIP perpetrators to court.
