A report commissioned in the wake of revelations that “at least” 1,400 children were sexually exploited in Rotherham has branded the local authority “not fit for purpose” and left it facing takeover by government commissioners. How did it reach this point?

45 “Political Correctness Let Grooming Gangs Prosper” – S.A.S. on LBC Radio w/ Katie Hopkins
Gepubliceerd op 19 mei 2017
Mr Singh founded the Sikh Awareness Society to encourage Sikh families to act against sexual abuse.
And he said that political correctness had let the gangs succeed.
He told Katie: “I think it is due to political correctness, but it’s also down to nobody wants to be called a racist. Nobody wants to call a spade a spade. Nobody really grabbing the bull by the horns and saying “No, abuse is abuse”.
“But they don’t want to be labeled that we’re after one community, we’re targeting one community.
“We can can see all the reports coming out Rotherham, the failings of the police, the failings of the local councillors.
“The whole system failed and that’s what’s been happening for the last 30 years. And it is PC. People are just too too afraid to, you know, just too afraid to speak the truth.”

Forced Marriages: Arranged marriages causing a wave of unreported violence
For downloads and more information visit: http://www.journeyman.tv/?lid=66262
There are 8 to 10 thousand forced marriages in the UK every year. As authorities are accused of taking ‘honour’ crimes too lightly, girls who resist or refuse a marriage can face abuse, torture, even death.
“We have kidnappings, abductions, sexual offences. Anything that you can imagine could happen does happen in the name of honour”, Nazir Afzal, the Chief Prosecutor for Northwest England, tells us. Shafilia Ahmed simply wanted to be a lawyer and to make her own relationship choices. But her parents judged the 17-year-old’s aspirations to be shameful to the family, so they killed her and made their other children watch the consequences of perceived dishonour. In the multi-cultural corners of the United Kingdom law enforcement authorities are struggling to address the problem. Police, in particular, have been accused of not taking honour crime seriously, ignoring clear warning signs and pleas for help. Detective Constable Palbinder Singh says part of the problem is being too culturally sensitive. “It’s a ruse. We won’t interfere with that family, it’s their culture. Well hang on a minute, crimes are being committed, people’s lives are being destroyed, people’s freedoms are being suppressed.”
