Rotherham

Summary:


Hansard: 23rd October 2015

At the same time, we must be prepared to insist that there can be only one law; we must get away from what might be called the “Rotherham complex”, where the authorities were so afraid of offending a minority community that they turned a blind eye to the appalling abuse of young, mainly British girls. I pay tribute here to Andrew Norfolk, a correspondent of the Times, and to the editor of that newspaper, for their courage and persistence in uncovering such outrageous behaviour. Other cases have since been unearthed that suggest that there has been a widespread failure to apply the law for so-called cultural reasons. Indeed, there can be little doubt that the many disturbing examples provided by the noble Baroness are but the tip of a very large iceberg.

Sahih al-Bukhari Book 62 Hadith 64

Narrated 'Aisha:

that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

  • Summary: 
    • The approach the British authorities have taken in response to this national disaster appears largely based on countering secondary issues -- most notably, individuals that protest the grooming, including at one point the arrest of parents attempting to rescue their daughter from her abusers.

    • There also seems to be a tacit alliance with much of the media to silence public discourse and, when all else fails, outright suppression.

  • Summary: 

    The future of modern Britain looks set to be an unusually complicated affair. Take just one piece of news that came out of the trial of Darren Osborne over recent days. According to relatives of the Finsbury Park attacker, the first trigger towards his radicalisation was watching the BBC drama Three Girls about the Rochdale grooming gangs. Evidence suggests that this drama put him on the path to deciding to hire a van and drive it into a group of Muslims in Finsbury Park a few weeks later, murdering 51-year old Makram Ali. Now of course the BBC’s drama department should not be held responsible for the death of Mr Ali. Though I would love to see a real debate on Newsnight or the like in which the BBC questioned its own apparent role in this terrible business. But just how much more complicated can things get?

  • Summary: 

    In August 2016, an ex Detective from the Metropolitan Police gave an interview to Brian Gerrish at UK Column about his experiences of cover ups involving paedophiles and the apathy within the police when dealing with children who are vulnerable and victims of sexual crimes. It also raises the issue of police whistleblowers and the lengths those higher up will go to, to protect fellow ranks and the damage caused. It is an excellent listen. Although it is an hour long, it is worth listening to.
