Sounds like Rotherham?

This from the Yorkshire Post on Ann Cryer giving evidence to the HASC.

Gangs of Pakistani men were allowed to prey on vulnerable young white girls for years in Yorkshire because authorities were “terrified of being called racist”, a former MP has said.

Ann Cryer, who was MP for Keighley for 13 years before stepping down in 2010, said there had been a total failure by local police, social services, schools and hospitals in West Yorkshire to work together to address the mounting evidence of child sex exploitation that emerged a decade ago.

“There has to be inter-agency working – and that wasn’t happening then,” she told a committee of MPs tonight.

“The West Yorkshire Police, Bradford local authority, social services, schools, hospitals even – because abortions were taking place – none of them were working together. None of them were giving information.

“I feel pretty convinced that at that time there was a fear of being called racist.”

So what are politicians doing in Rotherham?

Associating themselves with headlines like, exposing the lies and half truths on Child exploitation!

  1. The recurring theme here is people who could have addressed important topics only do so when they no longer have any influence.
    Afraid of expressing an unpopular view whilst in power Ms Cryer? That could be our fault. We should probably be keeping our public servants in line with a big stick.
