It appears that the route to success in the Rotherham Labour Party is by failure, it might seem a little odd but if you look at the PCC Candidate Cllr Shaun Wright you can spot the link.
While taking home over £25k a year for his Cabinet post Cllr Wright took the children’s department to the point of absolute failure and with it failed vulnerable individuals within the Borough.
On his watch girls as young as 12 were systematically used and abused by a gang of men from Rotherham.
This is a link to one of the more balanced articles and provides more of the detail on the Rotherham case.
The victims were all known to Social Services who failed to protect them, following the conviction of the men you would have thought that Cllr Wright and RMBC would have provided the public with information on how to reduce the risk of children being abused, but no, a wall of silence.
Cllr Paul Lakin has maintained that public silence supported by Cllr Emma Hoddinott and the rest of the lambs.
Come November Cllr Wright will be elected to the high office of PCC and if Rotherham Labour Party, Cllr Wright , Hoddinott and Lakin get their way the public will remain in the dark on the issue of grooming and exploitation.
