  1. No wonder Akhtar and his supporters ran a nasty campaign against me when I tried to raise the grooming issue when I stood in Rotherham as a candidate. Even Labour’s candidate Sarah Champion said I was trying to exploit the situation politically, although thankfully she has now woken up to the scale of the problem I tried to raise at the time.
    The people who urged me to raise the issue, by the way, were Muslim women; this scandal was never an issue buried or ignored by the Muslim community but an issue buried by a few community leaders who wanted to protect their mates. It was never about faith, skin colour or culture.
    Sadly, I think there’s more to come out.

    • Yvonne, I agree it was never about faith or skin colour but without doubt it was about culture. Akhtar, because of his culture has corrupted local politics for years purely, I believe, because this is normal for such corrupt practices to take place in his home country. The abuse of non-muslim girls is also part of the culture of his home country too.
      You mention dirty dealing which went on at the count, can you expand on this please as I have attended a couple of “counts” in recent years and found them to be as bent as a butchers hook. Kimber was responsible for massive cover-ups of postal vote rigging by the Muslim community, what do you know?

  2. Who did Akhtar and PC Ali liaise with prior to “brokering” the deal ?? Sounds like someone higher up the police service may know about this apparent attempt to pervert the course of justice ?? Let us wait and see what the IPCC make of this. When it comes to criminal matters they no doubt can reach out beyond the police community.

  3. The relations between members of the police force and those in the council should be scrutinised; the first time I arrived at the council offices I had a ‘talking to’ by a member of the police force. I felt it was designed to intimidate me and my campaign from the start. Then the dirty dealing which went on at the count left a lot to be desired as well.

  4. Was not this, when Akhtar deferred Akhtar, infamously “temporary resignation” from the council.

    I can’t remember if the police at the time or the IPCC investigated this matter.

    Any clues anyone?

  5. Why are we talking about this as if it’s Gospel before the trial has concluded? @Paddy given defendants are in court charged with numerous sexual offences I would say these are great times for Rotherham.
