Good question

Let’s start with a riddle. If South Yorkshire Police can mount a raid on Sir Cliff Richard’s home in pursuit of evidence linked to a single allegation of child sex abuse 30 years ago, why were South Yorkshire Police incapable of pursuing multiple allegations against multiple men who raped 1,400 children over 16 years?


The Labour Party, in particular, is mired in shame over “cultural sensitivity” in Rotherham. Especially, cynics might point out, a sensitivity to the culture of Muslims whose votes they don’t want to lose. Denis MacShane, MP for Rotherham from 1994 to 2012, actually admitted to the BBC’s World At One that “there was a culture of not wanting to rock the multicultural community boat, if I may put it like that. Perhaps, yes, as a true Guardian reader and liberal Leftie, I suppose I didn’t want to raise that too hard.” Much better to hang on to your impeccable liberal credentials than save a few girls from being raped, eh, Denis?

Can we jail him again?

  1. Not only can we not jail him, I doubt we ‘ll jail (or even sack) any of the others involved.

    Because why bother? Rotherham voters will return a different red rosette wearer next year anyway, so there’s nothing to lose & everything to gain by following the example of Shaun Wright & digging in like a blood engorged tick.

  2. This of course from the man who spared no effort to give wild-eyed, spittle-flecked (really – I’ve seen it close up) speeches on the thesis that prostitution=slavery.

  3. The real culprits are the leftie fascists who criminalised or semi-criminalised anyone disagreeing with their multiculti agenda. Nick Griffin was arrested and put on trial ten years ago for speaking the truth about Muslim/Asian groomers.

    Adolf Hitler used to arrest his political opponents too.

    And leftie neo-Nazis are still at it. In Cumbria, Labour Party politicians have recently managed to persuade the police to arrest BNP members on numerous occasions.

  4. As Julia M said, not one person will be, in any way, shape or form, disciplined over this.

    For that, of course, would “send the wrong signals” in the “war on anti-racism”.

  5. The answer to the riddle, of course, is that Sir Cliff is white and an avowed Christian. The law does not apply to Muslims, everyone in authority is terrified of them.

  6. Guy Herbert said: “This of course from the man who spared no effort to give wild-eyed, spittle-flecked (really – I’ve seen it close up) speeches on the thesis that prostitution=slavery.”

    Your comment has got me thinking; there are many loud voices inflating modern slavery concerns and conflating them with sex workers. Could they have been trying to target the problems of Rotherham and other places from an oblique, convoluted and ineffectual route perhaps?

    If the authorities built up a head of steam behind raids to free ‘slaves’ they could have used that as a cover story in Rotherham, etc to deal with gangs preying on girls. It would be a shame if that was anywhere near the truth of the matter – the authorities so constrained by their political correctness that they would have to create a phony panic as a foot in the door to action rather than deal with criminal behaviour directly.

  7. God, what a load of bullshit the whole Rotherham case is surrounded in. The reason everyone thought the allegations were just racism was that they originated with Nick Griffin and other racists. It’s still not clear whether it’s just coincidence that Griffin finally happened to be right with one of his blood libels, although it seems likely.

    You can’t get past the hypocrisy of Griffin calling others out for touching children, though.

  8. The answer to the riddle is of course that they weren’t incapable, they were unwilling.

    Which makes it worse: incapable might be justifiable and defensible; their behaviour is neither.

  9. “..of Shaun Wright & digging in like a blood engorged tick.”
    Speaking from personal experience; ticks, unlike Socialists, drop off when they’ve had their fill.
    A long time ago, maybe 20 years, either the Mail or the Express ran a story on this. I remember because I was walking down Deansgate in Manchester and an angry looking lefty woman demanded that I sign a petition against such ‘racist’ reporting.

    Note the reason this was suppressed: Labour were afraid that if the police did their job, the Moslem ‘community’ would be angered and not vote for them. So on the one hand we have a group of people too craven to fight this bestial behaviour out of political calculation and on the other a group of people too evil and tribal to countenance the enforcement of law against their co-religionists. The flags ‘Labour voter’ and ‘Moslem’ carried more weight than ‘child rapist’ in each group’s thinking. Both groups should pay a heavy price.

  11. @Bloke in Costa Rica
    That is very unfair on the Muslim community – the few seconds I saw on TV had young Muslims demanding that the guilty be convicted and jailed.

    If they were so keen to clean house now why the deafening silence for so many years? I don’t buy it.

  13. > If they were so keen to clean house now why the deafening silence for so many years?

    Why assume that they knew? If you were raping girls, you’d tell your famliy about it over dinner, would you?

    Quite possibly, seeing as how many of the rapists were father/son teams. And it is now widely appreciated that these activities were fairly common knowledge among what back home would be called the ‘tribal elders’. The scale of this thing is now becoming apparent to the general populace, hence all the hoo-hah. But the principal actors have known what’s what for a long time. There has been collusion, tacit if not active, between the multi-culti PC brigades on the one hand and the Moslem community on the other.
