Fascinating really

Sajid Javid has defended his right to highlight the Pakistani Asian background of grooming gangs.

The home secretary said it would be wrong not to investigate why more than 50 per cent of those involved in recent child sexual abuse grooming cases were of Pakistani heritage.

Mr Javid, himself of Pakistani heritage and a Muslim, warned that ignoring the ethnicity of abusers would give “oxygen” to extremists.

He also defended his previous comments in a tweet in October in which he described a Huddersfield gang as “sick Asian paedophiles.”

Isn’t is remarkable that a defence is thought necessary? Rather than it just being an obvious statement of truth?

No, it is not true that all men of Pakistani background are kiddie fiddlers. It is true that a preponderance of child grooming gangs are of Pakistani background. Yet to say so requires a defence?

  1. @Tim:

    Yet to say so requires a defence?”

    As someone, possibly George Orwell, said:

    In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act

  2. It’s just a worked example of how terrified “our betters” are of being labelled “racist” (or anything-else-ist) and how deeply and successfully the SJWs have burrowed into society.

  3. This is about Javid posturing for his future political career. Remember–like Sad Dick himself–these chumps see the day when the imported vote will be –first kingmakers–then the majority.

  4. From Yesterady’s Guardian:

    He was pressed on the issue by the programme’s guest editor, the Pakistani-British writer Kamila Shamsie, who pointed out that the lack of sex offender registers in Pakistan would make it easier for offenders deported from the UK to repeat their crimes.

    Javid responded: “I’m the British home secretary. My job is to protect the British public.”

    Seeking to clarify, Shamsie asked: “If you are sending members of grooming gangs to Pakistan, knowing that there is not a sex offenders registry, what they do there is not anything to do with you?”

    Javid said: “My job is to protect the British public.”

    It comes to something when it isn’t surprising that the BBC needs to be reminded that the role of the British Home Secretary is to protect British citizens.

    The implication of the stupid woman’s comment is that we should import all of Pakistan’s child molesters so that Pakistani’s can be safe.

  5. I’d profoundly object to Javid’s use of the words “sick Asian paedophiles.” There’s nothing whatsoever sick or paedophilic if you lack the constraints of a modern civilised society. It’s perfectly normal healthy behaviour. There’s nothing to be cured, here.
    Which, of course, puts the whole thing into an entirely different context.

  6. More than 50%? Were the rest Bangladeshis?

    The implication of the stupid woman’s comment is that we should import all of Pakistan’s child molesters so that Pakistani’s can be safe.

    Yep. Remember – foreigners are as important as British citizens, except when they are more important.

    Anyway, Pakistani girls should be quite safe – not many white Christian girls around those parts.

  7. From the Guardian : “He was pressed on the issue by the programme’s guest editor, the Pakistani-British writer Kamila Shamsie…”
    You would think Sajid Javid was white

  8. @Rob
    Sadly there is quite a lot of evidence than in Pakistan there is abuse of Christian Pakistani Girls by Muslims.
    The problem being Christian as opposed to skin colour.

  9. I agree that we shouldn’t be deporting Pakistani nonces.

    We should be hanging them here and then deporting their families.

  10. MC,

    Way too harsh, we should be castrating them here, with a pair of garden shears, and then deporting them with their families.

  11. I’ll disagree with Mr Ecks for once. Javid is a cunning politician, because he’s the only one bright enough to understand that a politician’s job is to do what is good for the citizens of the country; with the rest of the world taking a distant second place.

    If only the likes of Macron and Merkel understood this simple concept, they’d be a lot more popular.

  12. “If only the likes of Macron and Merkel understood this simple concept, they’d be a lot more popular.”
    It’d be a novel one to May, as well.

    This is why Trump is so popular. He understands instinctively that the US has to come first. This one reason he makes so many pointy heads explode.

  14. “This is why Trump is so popular. He understands instinctively that the US has to come first. This one reason he makes so many pointy heads explode.”

    And why there’s a good chance Trump will win again – the pointy headed ones don’t have an answer for the response: “Who should the american president put first?”

  15. I agree, it’s his pitch to become PM.

    He’s the man who tells it like it is.

    Until he’s been “elected”.

    The 1922 boys looking at the short term rather than the long term consequences of having a Pakistani Muslim prime minister. Thanks chaps.

  16. Javid – I don’t trust or like him, two reasons are:

    1. He licked Cameron’s arse, sold his sole and backed Remain

    2. BBC QT Thur before US Election – “I cant support either, but I look forward to welcoming Madame President to the UK”

  17. @ Pcar
    It is believable that Sajid Javid’s honest statement that the EU would not allow us to save the Redcar steelworks was enough to tip the vote in favour of “Leave” – just look at the results from the North-East.
    2 That wasn’t supporting Killary – just assuming that her victory was a foregone conclusion.

  18. @john 77

    1. Perhaps, but he still sold his soul

    2. Whether or not it was tacit support for Hellary, it was damned stupid for a Gov’t minister to express apparent favouritism.
    “I look forward to welcoming the next President, whoever it may be, to the UK” is correct statement.
