    Why is this type of action not happening with officers, senior managers and councillors in Rotherham ??? Or are we just allowing them to quietly leave and/or paying them off ??

    Thats exactly the same question that came to my mind Xinsider SYP were the last to start making arrests, and they have not even questioned any councillors or council staff. The ones who were in charge have walked away with golden handshake.
