Labour, Biraderi, Corruption and Child Sexual Abuse: Joining up the Dots

This piece published previously, the best article I have seen on the subject of biraderism as it relates to Rotherham.

Seems appropriate also, because Len Tingle uttered the word, not to be spoken out loud, Biraderism! Live on Look North, no less:

“Once the Mirpuri/ Pakistani community in Britain started to politically organise its leaders found the UK highly fertile ground for the introduction of political practices imported from their homeland.

Specifically I am talking about the close links between organised crime, politics based in caste and clan and the protection of the misogynistic male dominance within their own community; inevitably this ended up protecting sexual criminals.

A culture where the clan (Biraderi) leaders effectively abuse religion and family ties to enrich themselves , abusing their own community by deliberately building up fear of kafir (non Muslim outsiders) to make them toe the community leadership line. The likes of EDL, BNP and UKIP are a gift to a Biraderi leadership who canscare their own by saying “that’s what awaits if you leave our nest”.

Another tactic of the leadership is to be seen with white figures of power, because poor and ill-educated people understand power in a way that the empowered middle classes don’t. They are sending out messages: look at me, I can look after you, I can do things, don’t challenge me, I am more important than you.

Here we must make an important point that the Biraderi system and the criminal leadership are equally damaging for those within their own community. The inherent misogyny and mafia like threats to exclude and punish those who broke the code of silence means many crimes going unreported, many young Pakistani girls raped and then disinherited.

For those who choose to look there has been a build of evidence for many years that much of the political leadership coming forward from of the Pakastani/Mirpur community is corrupt, especially in inner town and city wards. Inevitably this local organisation has polluted the whole body of the Labour Party.

There is no excuse for the Labour Party nationally and locally turning a blind eye to these corrupt practices. In a meeting with Bradford Muslim women Ed Miliband actually promised that the Party would no longer depend upon the Biraderi leadership as its source of reference for the Muslim community.

Perhaps what Ed didn’t confront, or understand is that here we are talking about criminality and the tolerance of criminality for self -interest. In Rotherham that interest was the 2000 votes, guaranteeing the re-election of Labour Councillors and MP.

The crimes, including sex crimes are nothing to do with Islam or mystical cultural differences. It is never a question of the Labour party “tolerating the difference”, it was about too many in the party wanting to garner the block votes that come through the Biraderi.

The same power of the Biraderi leadership that oppressed their own communities and protect organised crime was what has attracted the Labour Party; they could use their control to deliver the vote. The only price for many in the Labour is wilfully turning a blind eye, and justifying it as an equalities issue.”

Readers may also be interested in this on the next generation, a message of warning to the Labour Party, for this years selections. When we find out the results of Labour’s Candidate selections, we will find out whether their due diligence has been thorough enough?

        • John, I know very many Pakistanis who would stab themselves in the eye with a red hot needle before descending to the depravity displayed by the gangsters of Rotherham. They are outraged that such a cover up should be perpetrated in their names.
          Don’t expect any plaudits from them for riding to their rescue. They want answers as to how such a small community came to harbour hundreds of child rapists. If its not Biraderi politics (and I assume you agree with the author it’s not Islam or Pakistani culture?) what answers do you offer? Or do you think it’s enough just to cry racist at every possible explanation?

      • Giles,
        Its clear to me that this was outrageous, evil criminal wrong doing. And should be prosecuted as such. Including prosecuting those who helped to cover up this crime. But this crime or any other has no linkage with race or heritage. One in five Uk women has been abused in this country. The mistreatment of the female gender is a sad indictment of the society we live. The bar to prosecutions should be substatially lowered for crimes against children, and i would also argue against women.

        • John, you are obviously right, and who would deny it, that this kind of depravity is no monopoly of any one group. But we do have the stats on group offending. Of the two most comprehensive sets of data one shows “Asians” at 33% of group offenders after excluding those of unknown ethnicity (27% prior) the other puts them at 75% of rape gangs. I don’t like quoting those. I’d love it if they showed all groups proportionately represented. And I know just quoting them will lead some to draw adverse conclusions about my motives. But they need explaining somehow.
          If I was in Thailand where a big fraction of white British tourists and residents are child abusers I’d want to know why. My guess there would start with the fact that money buys you escape from justice and white Brits have more money than Thais.
          So one doesn’t need a racist explanation in such cases but one certainly requires an explanation. Just saying “what about Jimmy Savile” doesn’t cut it.

  1. As a bit of a stats pedant, I’m not sure about the 2,000 votes figure. I read of 8,000 people of Pakistani heritage in Rotherham. That would imply perhaps 4,000 voters, depending on the percentage over 18 and the turnout. But I guess the local polls have a low turnout. Still, it’s possible that each girl gang raped and forced into prostitution paid for two votes each rather than one.

    • Come to think of it, not all vote Labour so it is one vote per life destroyed after all. I was right first time. How cheaply those lives were sold. Does anyone believe this could have happened in the days of Nye Bevan and Ernie Bevin, when Labour were still a working class party? The sheer class hatred of middle class leftists for the working classes clearly played a role here. What after all was political correctness other than another excuse for the bourgeoisie to lecture the masses about minding their manners?

    What a crock of steaming poo. People of Pakistani heritage vote for who they are told to vote for.

    As for the Labour party standing for the working class, I’m afraid that principle disappeared a long, long time ago when their members started educating their children at public school, by riding the expenses gravy train and making half a million quid profit on selling their second home paid for by the taxpayer.

    The Labour party stands for themselves, their own lust for power, for their own greed and they are nothing less than Tories wearing a red rosette.

        • Sorry, don’t know how to link using iPhone. The first set of figures with the lower stat for Asian offending is from the children’s commissioner. The more alarming 75% figure from CEOPs (Child exploitation and online protection centre). The latter however excludes pardophile rings which are distinguished from child rape gangs, rather arbitrarily IMO. The rings are almost all white but we are told much rarer than the gangs (no stats given for rings) so we know the “Asian” total must exceed 37.5% of group offending as that’s what you would get if the rings were as common as the gangs. Champion’s figure was an interview with Sky. I must learn how to link but I think you have enough info to verify by googling (eg Sarah Champion, 2,000 victims).

Please explain why is it up to me to change things?

      I don’t think I’ve ‘smeared’ Champion, my criticism of her has been that she has, like others, jumped on the CSE bandwagon. In fact, I have agreed that she has done a better job than her predecessor and her 2 fellow MP’s from Rotherham.

  5. On statistics….an earlier article

    In Rotherham “the largest BME community is Pakistani & Kashmiri who numbered 7,912 in 2011 or 3.1% of the population.”

    A few calculations (population, demographics & turnout) reduces the 7,912 into an “active voter” number of about 2600.

    Interestingly……

    at the 2012 By Election Yvonne Ridley got 1,778 votes, and a reasonable estimate suggests at least 1300 of these will be of Pakistani/Kashmiri cethnic origin. Meaning that the potential block birders vote was split 50:50.

    Rothpol has previously observed the sense of panic, and nasty animosity that Akhtar and Mahroof show towards Respect, This is why. It doesn’t threaten Labour, so much as their power base within Labour.

  6. Ideas for Ms May, Mr Pickles, Cameron, Osborne and the Commisioners: suspend all but one councillor for each ward during reign of commisioners, saving half a million quid and divert this to Jayne Senior’s work giving therapy to survivors. Ask her to head up a new project to provide survivor therapy and awareness training designed by survivors. Cross community grooming awareness for every community and youth group. Awareness training led by survivors themselves. Bring all charities tackling grooming issue into this project. Immediate election of one councillor in every ward to deal with day to day residents consultation. Abolish postal voting for all except people who are medically incapable of going to vote. Cancel all current taxi licensing contracts and invite reapplications on more rigorous criteria. central government to pay commisioners fees out of special funds and cut these in any case. Debt amnesty to cancel all Rotherham council deficits and pay victim compensation. Victims to be paid compensation after full, detailed witness statements. Time limited Enquiry into police handling of grooming and hand over of direction of policing on this issue to NCA or an external force. Ban all political demonstrations in Rotherham for time being and save £200k a time for more policing. Time limit Orgreave and Hillsbrough enquiries and cap all legal fees on same to relieve police budgets. pro active policing of known grooming locations plus checks on premises and vehicles by environmental, licensing, trading standards authorities and traffic police. Beefed up street pastors to patrol school gates and parks accompanied by police. Set up HMRC office tackling tax evasion in Rotherham, giving Rotherham a positive role in UK. inter faith consultative group with representation compulsory for all religious traditions to have a body that gave confidence and support (and accountability) to leaders in the islamic community to tackle the grooming issue on a religious/moral level within their own circles and share safeguarding best practice. amnesty for all survivors forced to act in ways that gave themselves criminal records by their groomers. A cross agency task group to collate all intelligence on grooming activity to secure prosecutions, with details of how to contribute intelligence given to all community groups undergoing awareness training.

  7. “What was nasty about that?”

    Your comment “Slagging off those you hate, smearing a decent MP like Champion, and generally spitting bile”. As well as being untrue its sounds pretty nasty to me. Perhaps others may want to judge that.

    “All your posts are utterly negative”. Err, no they are not. Or do you mean they are not supportive of Labour? In your eyes because they criticise those that are beyond criticism (Labour) my posts are automatically negative.

    “what are you voting for exactly?” As far as I am aware voting at elections was meant to be done in private (hence the discreet voting booths and sealed boxes to put your paper in once completed). Therefore who or what I vote for will remain confidential unless I decide to tell other people. One thing is for sure, I will not be bullied by you into telling you what I’m voting for just because you deem it necessary!

    So as you have managed to deflect from my original comments by spouting aggressively and making personal attacks, how about responding to my suggestions about the Labour party no longer being for the working man? Please tell us, with so many millionaires in the shadow cabinet with a thirst for becoming rich and with so many Labour MP’s either benefitting from a public school education or putting their own children through public schools, please tell me how they don’t have the same principles as the Tories?

But when an individual is doing a good job – like Sarah Champion is – I will support her.

  8. The facts are indisputable, thousands of little girls, have been rape and abused. The local council, police, MP ‘s and the Labour Party, knew this crime was going on and did nothing to stop it, in fact they tried to cover it up. The main preptrators were Pakistani males . Even though Ms Champion was only elected in 2012 , by then she was fully aware that something bad was going on, but choose to ignore the philght of suffering children, in maintaining the facade of community cohesion , ie votes from her friends.

    She has never publicly denounced the Pakistani community ,it’s leaders or it’s culture to women, for the heinous crimes committed againist Rotherham children. She must also be fully aware of the part, her own party has played in this scandal, but not a word of condemnation.

    Not matter what she does, most people will see her and the party she linked to as the party that created, prolong and ultimately allow the children of Rotherham to descend into hell.

And the Margaret Hodge who was forced to make a court ordered apology to an abuse victim she smeared for pointing out her role in turning a blind eye to rampant sexual abuse in Islington care homes.
        The latter was also linked to PC like Rotherham. The victims were ignored as the abusers were gay and anyone who blew the whistle was accused of believing gay = paedophile. If I was still Labour I’d jump for joy at the chance to claim these enablers are Tories.

If she can’t be jailed she should at least be greeted with a loud cry of “shame on you!” And you are right, she is not a Tory. As someone with deep left wing roots, how I wish she were.
