The 28 Most Damning words in the Rotherham Abuse Scandal Report

The Report on the exploitation of over 1400 girls in Rotherham over 17 years is a damning indictment on the authorities but in all its pages there are no words more damning than these:

By 2005, it is hard to believe that any senior officers or members from the Leader and the Chief Executive downwards, were not aware of the issue.

Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham 1997 – 2013  Alexis Jay OBE  Page 107

And these words are all the more damning when you consider this news story in the Sunday Times the paper of record in England from 2007.

Schoolgirls in Lancashire and Yorkshire are falling prey to sinister gangs of pimps. Two men have been sent to jail, but the girls’ mothers, not the police, are at the forefront of the crackdown. Why are the authorities so reluctant to get involved?

This interview with one of the victims from 2010

Thirteen-year-old Emma was a happy child from a loving family when a gang of boys she met at a shopping centre introduced her to a charismatic older man. He plied her with gifts and drinks… then raped her and forced her into prostitution. Now aged 20 and in hiding from the gang, Emma talks candidly about how she was groomed – and how she is trying to help the growing number of others being picked out for a similar fate

And this yesterday from Robert Stacy McCain:

Let any American imagine, therefore, what the reaction would have been if something like this were happening in Huntsville, Alabama. Would we expect local law enforcement and child-welfare agencies to do nothing? If there were a problem so specific and so localized, involving the sexual exploitation of young girls, wouldn’t we expect a joint federal/state/local task force to target the perpetrators? The FBI would be swarming all over these vicious creeps.


That’s the astonishing thing, as you read Professor Alexis Jay’s investigative report: Case after case came to the attention of authorities, and yet the systematic exploitation of girls continued. The families of victims were terrorized, and the failure of police to act convinced many people in Rotherham that the Pakistani pimps had political protection through local Labour Party officials.

This IS the culture war, this is why it’s being fought and if you are unwilling and unable see how the culture of liberalism in general and the Labour party in particular have to do with this result I have two questions for you, one from Stacy:

Where were the feminists? Here you have girls as young as 11 being raped and pimped out, and you might think that there would be daily outpourings of feminist rage about it, yet this problem has been allowed to fester for years without decisive official action? Something is clearly wrong in British culture, if political correctness could keep feminists quiet about this savagery.

Perhaps they were too busy fighting over the Dyke March in London:

and one question from me:

Does anyone think for one moment if the scandal involved Catholic Priest rather than the Islamic community that the media and the police wouldn’t’ have been all over it?
