  1. I find the photograph and the platitudes in the Star nauseating, make Rotherham stronger that lot, not a chance. This photo opportunity smacks more of desperation than anything else, do they think that the people of Rotherham will believe them and trust them, I don’t think so.

  2. I agree Dave, it was a photo opportunity for men only!
    Where was the representative from any Childrens Charity? None of the people in the photograph are qualified to make judgements nor pass any comments on the way forward for child safety in Rotherham in the wake of the Jay Report.
