Absolutely awful....

Unbelievable that it has taken a decade to take such small steps forward considering the gravity of the crimes over helpless young girls?

Correct me if I’m wrong - but wasn’t there a strong consensus of local opinion that both the police and councillors were wary of being labelled racist because the alleged perpetrators were Asians ?

Wasn`t Cyril Smith MP involved in paedophile activities in his constituency of Rochdale?

Maybe mentioned in the dossiers that Teresa May conveniently lost!

It goes beyond just the police and the people who were jailed. There was a "community" of people facilitating the abuse and a police force who were turning a blind eye.

The religion or race of the "men" involved should be irrelevant, but not if it`s the reason the police turned a blind eye. Everyone should be treated equally. There`s no "oh, it`s their culture" or "oh, he`s old and doesn`t understand.". If you abuse someone you should be punished.

Wasn’t there a BBC drama on this a few years ago - if memory serves one of the key problems moving a prosecution forward was the strong reluctance of any the victims to go on record formally naming names etc ?
Eventually one girl did and others felt confident to follow her lead.
Question is how far up the Police chain of command was there a decision not to pursue the allegations ?
I have a recollection the buck stopped at a sergeant - which is a shocking state of affairs if true.
Tragically similar going on elsewhere in England - Rotherham, for example, really shocking.

I followed some of the early stuff vee and it was alleged by some that the reason the police did not make arrests at the time was that some of the police were active in the abuse

One case when a girl who had been plied with alcohol complained she had been sexually abused she was detained for underage drinking

Another case the a girl who I think was referred to as Amber took her clothes to the police station as they had traces of semen on them .. The Police lost them

It was a tragic conspired failing by all involved .. They should now be prosecuted

That BBC drama three parter was called “3 Girls” - the only police officer to come out with any respect was the female who resigned and was effectively a whistleblower.

I think we all know by now that the police force attracts some very unsavoury characters who like the power the uniform has over other people.
I wonder if it`s the case that this was swept under the carpet due to police involvement in the abuse at various levels in the command

I had a read up on the Rotherham case again - just as disturbing, if not more so, than Rochdale….. if such were possible.

That’s South Yorkshire Police territory - and we all know their reported track record in different controversial occurences.

Just as concerning is a list of similar disgusting stories in several other parts of England.

The home secretary, Sajid Javid, has defended calling a convicted sexual grooming gang “sick Asian paedophiles”, arguing that noting the ethnicity of the perpetrators was a key element in tackling such crimes.

The report into failings around the gangs was very clear in stating that the ethnicity of the perpetrators was far less of an issue than the police attitude to the victims, who were dismissed or further victimised because of their socio-economic background.

The children involved were from extremely deprived and neglectful families, were often involved in petty crime and were therefore almost all well known to police.

On a surface level the children were enthusiastic participants in what was going on: they were given adult attention and gifts - but obviously they are children so had been targeted, groomed, and horrifically abused but because they were criminally active and had been economically rather than physically coerced they were seen as being responsible for "their own" actions.

One particularly disgusting incident reported was when a police officer described the children who were being abused as "just little slags."

The police believed the victims, they just felt that they had brought it upon themselves.

Obviously the powers that be would rather the police were described as being afraid of being seen as racists over being described as victimising or dismissive of the rights of underprivileged children.

I wasn`t aware that there were/are indications/claims that police officers were directly involved in the abuse though.

Was Jimmy Saville`s ethnicity ever mentioned in relation to his crimes?

Why were he, Cyrill Smith and their disgusting mob never referred to as a "white paedophile gang?"

That cap also fits.

Because there was no gang.

Neither were part of any organised paedaphile gang, nor were they of Asian immigrant background.

In Smith`s case a high profile enquiry found no evidence of an organised ring.

It was the ethnicity of the alleged perpetrators that largely made the authorities wary of being perceived as racially motivated.

That`s not what the report says. That's the police excuse, however the report says that the police failed to act largely because of the socio-economic background of the victims. Same with Saville and with the vast majority of police failings to act on organised abuse of children.

Neither were part of any organised paedaphile gang

Ok then:

Paul Brannan, Elaine Lannery, Scott Forbes, Iain Owens, John Clark and Barry Watson in Glasgow?

Or John Denham, Matthew Stansfield, Matthew Lisk, David Harsley, Robin Hollyson, Christopher Knight and Adam Tom in Manchester?

Or James Evans, David Baker, Mark Smith, Natalie Wellington, Tracy Baker, Kirsty Webb, Phillip Wellington, Ann Clare, Pamela Howells, Lee Webb, David Evans, Jason Evans, Luke Baker, Natasha Webb, Matthew Evans, John Griffiths and Violet Griffiths in the West Midlands?

...need I go on?

All of these are more recent than the Rochdale case and none of the reports I can find describe their ethnicity at any point, despite every one of the perpetrators being from a white background.

I never said anything about the report other than it concluded that Smith was not part of any paedophile ring.

What I said stands scrutiny, separate from any other matters - he and Saville were not involved in an organised group.

Indeed, as you correctly indicate, the ethnicity of the alleged perpetrators was the central excuse for police inaction where Asians were involved, likewise the local authority.

That was the elephant in the room issue.

Organised paedophile gangs in Manchester, Glasgow and Manchester would presumably be white ? Not sure how they come into this ?

The point is that ethnicity isn`t brought up if the perpetrators were white, only if they were Asian.

I should have been clearer that I was referring specifically to the report into failings around the Rochdale gang in my second paragraph and press reports in my last paragraph. Apologies for the ambiguity.

I agree with the point your making Wotsit. The only thing I`d add, and I don`t know the answer, is were those who were targeted by these grooming gangs all of the same ethnicity or did they only target individuals from a different ethnicity to their own?

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

From Aunty :-


Labour has suspended a second parliamentary candidate after allegations that he made comments about Israel.

Former Hyndburn MP Graham Jones is also facing an investigation, the BBC understands.

It comes after Labour withdrew support for the party`s candidate for the Rochdale by-election, Azhar Ali, for apparently making antisemitic remarks.

Mr Jones has been contacted for comment.

Labour had selected Mr Jones to contest his former Lancashire seat in the upcoming general election.

But, on Tuesday audio emerged allegedly of the former MP arguing that British people who fight in the Israel Defence Forces "should be locked up" and using an expletive to refer to the country.
