Buried on page 33 of the Rotherham Advertiser Friday 17 August 2012 are the first public comments from Cllr Roger Stone on the issue of child exploitation, he must have be given approval by Cllr Emma Hoddinott to go to print.
No front page announcement, no special supplement, just a very brief paragraph trying to take the credit for someone else’s efforts, not good enough Cllr Stone.
Let’s be clear, children’s services let down a vulnerable child and they did it on Cllr Roger Stones and Cllr Shaun Wrights watch, read the report it will make you shudder. See below.
Did Cllr Roger Stone have a change of heart over stopping any public communication about the issue or had his and Cllr Emma Hoddinotts position become untenable due to internal pressure from those very few RMBC Elected Members with a conscience.
You have a lot more to do Cllr Stone and you know it.
