Anti-racism has been such a success, hasn’t it?

It emerged that there had been three previous reports into the problem which had been suppressed or ignored by officials, either because they did not like or did not believe the findings.

Tuesday’s report concluded that by far the majority of perpetrators were Asian men, and said council officials had been unwilling to address the issue for fear of being labelled racist.

What was being overlooked? Riding a bike without a helmet or something, something where turbans and such like could vaguely interact with race and or religion?

More than 1,400 children were sexually abused during a period of over 16 years by gangs of paedophiles after police and council bosses turned a blind eye for fear of being labelled racist, a damning report has concluded.

Senior officials were responsible for “blatant” failures that saw victims, some as young as 11, being treated with contempt and categorised as being “out of control” or simply ignored when they asked for help.

In some cases, parents who tried to rescue their children from abusers were themselves arrested. Police officers even dismissed the rape of children by saying that sex had been consensual.

Downing Street on Tuesday night described the failure to halt the abuse in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, as “appalling”.

Following the publication of the report, the leader of Rotherham council, Roger Stone, resigned, but no other council employees will face disciplinary proceedings after it was claimed that there was not enough evidence to take action.

Err, no, the mass rape of children.

Haven’t we built a delightful world for ourselves?

  1. “Tuesday’s report concluded that by far the majority of perpetrators were Asian men…”

    Nope. Let’s call a spade a spade, as even the report does – Pakistani Muslims.

  2. I notice that the Chief Executive has weaseled out of responsibility – “no one still here”. But, the people responsible are still in local government. They should be named and their responsibility subject to a review. When they fail to show that they met their duty of care, they should be fired (properly we dont want another sharon shoesmith). And blacklisted. Pour encourager les autres.

  3. The social workers were all doubtless Guardian readers, and would therefore be particularly aware of what happens to anyone in their world who let facts overrule doctrine.

  4. “Police officers even dismissed the rape of children by saying that sex had been consensual.”

    How can a child, under the age of consent, give their consent? I blame the training of plod here, they obviously don’t understand the English language.
