Labour man guilty of abducting boy, 13

A former New Labour high-flier was yesterday found guilty of abducting a 13-year-old boy from Bolton he had groomed on the internet.

Peter Tuffley, aged 28, who had worked as an assistant to Labour Party chairman Hazel Blears, took the boy to stay overnight at his flat in Liverpool after they met through an internet chatroom and dating website, Bolton Crown Court heard.

He denied the boy's claim they kissed and cuddled in his bed, and the jury cleared him of sexual activity with a child.continued...

But he was convicted of sexual grooming on the internet and child abduction, following a six-day trial.

Looks like the BNP will have to do some editing to add to their Liars, Buggers and Thieves list.

That list certainly seems to be lengthy but is anyone surprised?
