Brandreth on the child abuser Peter Morrison MP

Gyles Brandreth took over as MP for the City of Chester seat from Peter Morrison at the April election 1992. He was selected for the seat in March 1991.

Brandreth wrote a book, published in 1999 called Breaking the Code, Westminster Diaries.


The following entry is 12 Sept 1991 by which date Brandreth is under no illusions as to what some of his prospective constituents think of Morrison- a disgusting pervert into little boys.


Since this edition, first published in 1999, Brandreth has updated the book in 2014 to add that he himself was a victim of child sexual abuse and also that he did not know the veracity of the allegations against Morrison. He also states that he does not know if there was a cover up, but he suggests whips do look after their own. [2]

It does not mention Brandreth going to the police either in the 90’s or recently. Perhaps it is time to state what he knows, and for the police to be proactive, as well as to be given correct finding and resources for the job of investigating child sexual abuse.

It is worth pointing out that Morrisons sister, Dame Mary Morrison, was a friend and lady-in-waiting to the Queen [3]. His father John Morrison was a Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire for many years [4]. I believe that Thatchers rise to leader was helped by Morrisons father, but I have not at present got a reference for that. [Though see some of links found by @snowfaked]

For more on Morrison see Desiring Progress excellent post “Peter Morrison and the cover-up in the Tory Party – fully updated” [5] and more references in the links mostly provided by @snowfaked that are food for thought and may be useful in future research.

Please note that victims of abuse may be triggered by reading this information. The Sanctuary for the Abused [A] has advice on how to prevent triggers.  National Association for People Abused in Childhood [B] has a freephone helpline and has links to local support groups. Other useful sites are One in Four [C]  and Havoca [D]. Useful post on Triggers [E]  from SurvivorsJustice [F] blog. Jim Hoppers pages on Mindfulness [G]  and Meditation [H] may be useful.

    Just to point out that the version of my Morrison blog you link to is an old one from October last year – this is the up-to-date one
