In 2011 and 2012, Lord Maginnis of Drumglass kindly tabled a series of Questions in Parliament on this case, as the corrupt politicians and officials involved in the Abuse of Grandma B, now into its fifth year, have failed to see that it is stopped. However, the government will not accept responsibility for dealing with official corruption.

Lord Maginnis’s question can be seen on video, a few minutes after the beginning:


Among the more revealing questions – to which the government evaded giving any proper answers – were:

“The Hofschroer case has been on my desk for several years now. A widow in her 80s was dispossessed of her home in a way that implies collusion between certain family members and the Social Services. A son who has come to the rescue has been harried by the North Yorkshire police (that particularly dubious constabulary merits careful investigation) to the extent that he and his aged mother have been pursued through an Interpol warrant to their “refuge” in Austria.


The Minister knows it well and over the past three years the Home Office has received hundreds – yes, hundreds – of communications through me about the matter. Successive Secretaries of State [including Theresa May] have been so concerned that none would meet me, despite the fact that Interpol was activated to pursue this elderly lady all the way to her son’s home in Austria.  Does anyone in authority care that social services and police in North Yorkshire have conspired in the persecution of Mrs Hofschroer and her son? Are details of dismissals, forced retirements and other shady and costly measures pertaining to North Yorkshire Police available to legislators in Parliament?


None of the accused, including chief officers of the notorious North Yorkshire Police, who covered up for Jimmy Savile and other abusers for 50 years, the senior management of the City of York Council, its Labour leadership and the Common Purpose graduates running its Social Services department have denied their complicity in the serious crimes they have committed against a now 85 year-old invalid and her carer.

A number of other Lords also spoke on Police corruption over the course of the question and later in the day.  One made reference to Lord Maginnis’s concern over Grandma B and raised concerns of “systemic corruption at all levels”, the involvement of corrupt police officers “in all types of crime”, and how Police Professional Standards Departments and Police Authorities “aligned themselves” with the accused police officers against the complainant.
