It's looks like fmr Lib leader Lord David Steel will be suspended any moment as member of Scottish Liberal Party pending investigation into his evidence to IICSA yesterday on what he knew about Cyril Smith. Scots Lib bigwigs meeting right now. Swinson already demanded suspension

In 1979 MP Cyril Smith told then-party leader David Steel he had sexually abused children in a carehome. Steel did nothing, & waived through Smith's knighthood. Last year Steel called historic abuse claims "tittle-tattle". The British establishment is sick https://t.co/w4bJNRpW1t

What a piece of scum David Steel is. “I knew he was a pedophile but he wasn’t an MP or a member of my party so I didn’t feel obliged to take action.” How about calling cops to protect future victims as any decent human being would? 😡

The news that David Steel is investigated over the Cyril Smith scandal is to be welcomed, but let’s not forget another senior politician who didn’t do their duty to protect children from predators Kevin Pascoe's photo on David Steel

Thus far the David Steel/Cyril Smith abuse story is restricted to BBC Manchester online. As of 14:30 it is nowhere to be seen on BBC Scotland online. https://t.co/MdzxxO5F6x

David Steel was Liberal leader from 1976 to 1988, following on from Jeremy Thorpe (1967-76), who was acquitted in 1979 of attempted murder. In 1988 Steel nominated Cyril Smith for a knighthood. From 1999 to 2003 he served as First Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament. https://t.co/vD6klQMXga

David Steel allowed Cyril Smith to continue in office. He recommended the admitted child abuser for a knighthood. This is a *massive* story. Steel is a former leader of the Liberal party, he is a former MP and MSP. A former Holyrood Presiding Officer. He is now a life peer. Indyref2's photo on David Steel

Sir David Steel, former Liberal leader, former Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament & previously joint chair of the Scottish Constitutional Convention, to be suspended from Lib Dems. For 40 years he knew abt Cyril Smith child sex allegations & denied them until yesterday.

David Steel under oath, genuinely didn’t think Paedophile Cyril Smith would offend again.👀. His spitting image puppet gave him far too much respect.

@GerryHassan
Boris Johnson's comments on child sex abuse were shocking but much more damning is David Steel on Cyril Smith. Now admits he knew abt Smith's serial abuse in 1979 & did nothing. Last year he dismissed allegations as “tittle-tattle” & “scurrilous hear-say”. https://t.co/KQsukEEJat

DID "David Steel" know about Leon Brittan and Greville Janner who were listed in a lost file along with 16 MP's, clergy and senior police officers? All part of an ongoing cover-up by a deprived establishment #CSAinquiry

If you knew of someone who was guilty of child abuse but didn't work with you anymore, what would you do? Lord David Steel knew of Cyril Smith's involvement and washed his hands. Party before children. Shameful behaviour no matter when it happened.

Lord David Steel has admitted he was aware that Cyril Smith was a child sex abuser, yet rather than launch an investigation into Smith, Steel said he allowed him to continue in office and waived through a recommendation for a knighthood. https://t.co/x1RXEXjyhp

The credibility of witnesses naming 16 MPs should never have been doubted. Peter Morrison one of Thatcher's advisors Nicholas Fairbairn, Alistair Smith all close to Thatcher & Known to "David Steel" The establishment covered over the allegations as a risk to 'national security'

@BBCNews @BBCHelenaLee Leave David Steel out of this. He didn’t abuse any children. Smith was no longer in a position whereby he could abuse children when Steel was made aware of it. Cyril Smith was the only talisman the Liberals had in the 1970s, they were desperate not to give that up.
