  1. This is called “covering our backs” for OFSTED.
    Another suitable expression would be “locking the stable door after the horse has bolted”.

    In 2010 and 2012 OFSTED found Rotherham Children’s Services “adequate”, even after the time when the 5 Pakistani groomers had been convicted in the 2010 trial, and the grooming exposed. Thiese OFSTED reports were produced whilst CSE was ongoing and had been present since the early 1990’s.
    Suddenly, after the Jay Report, OFSTED finds Rotherham Children’s Services “inadequate” in practically every category. What a surprise.

    I have little doubt, had the Jay Report not been forthcoming, the latest OFSTED Report would again have found Rotherham’s Children’s Services “adequate”.

    I think what this means is in fact that OFSTED was itself “inadequate”, and complicit in CSE due to its own incompetence and failure to use investigative methods and procedures which would expose dangerous practices in Rotherham Social Services.

    Another report costing a fortune in taxpayer’s money to tell us what we already know.


    • Rotherham Politics has to enforce part of our conditions concerning registration of those who comment on this blog. Put simply, this is how to both register and preserve the confidentiality you may require.

      1. Choose an identity, best to keep it short.

      2. Email Rothpol putting register in the subject line and your chosen identity in the body text.

      3. When you receive a confirmatory email, you will then be able to comment freely.

      Rotherham Politics is a moderated blog , comments are published at the discretion of the moderator. This doesn’t equate to censorship, as Rothpol is prepared to publish comments that are adding to the debate, even if critical of Rotherham Politics!

      No one needs to reveal their identity, all Rothpol is asking is to be able to tell everyone apart, nothing else!

      Simply use a pseudonym, get a free email account in that name and use it to establish two way communication with me. Hushmail, is both free and secure, and is to be recommended.”


  2. a previous inspections of Children’s service, which branded the service as poor, led to S Wright accepting responsibility and stepping down. Since P Larkin assume his role and has been telling everybody things gave been improving . Will Larkin bite the bullet?


  3. must be a racist. rotherham labour party terminology for a racist is anybody who believes lawbreakers should be prosecuted whatever race or creed on said:
