Rotherham MBC has 63 elected members the majority Labour, the Times articles exposing the industrial scale of child sexual abuse in the Town confirmed the inadequacy of Labour councillors to deal with complex and deep rooted child abuse crimes.
Using the cloak of community cohesion the Towns labour run council sat back, kept the public in the dark over the menace and allowed children to be abused at the hands of organized gangs and individuals.
Within this context any right minded individual would think that when offered awareness training on child sexual exploitation all of the 63 extremely well remunerated councillors would have been eager to attend the sessions.
Stop! Reality check, this is Rotherham and its Labour controlled, from the Rotherham Advertiser out of the 63 councillors only 13 councilors have shown any interest in the training.
So in a town where children have been horrifically abused 50 councillors have not even bothered to register for the training.
Compounding the problem is that two of the Boroughs secondary schools have not signed up for the training aimed at safeguarding their pupils, a total disgrace, both the councillors and schools should be named and shamed.
I understand that any attempt to obtain the names of the said councillors via a FOI will be blocked using the excuse of confidentiality.
What about a wall of shame exposing those individual councillors and schools Rothpol?
I am sure regular readers and contributors would be willing to assist.
