Yorkshire MP warns racism fears must be put to one side in battle to stop child sex grooming gangs

Yorkshire MP Sarah Champion has today spoken of the need to acknowledge that the “majority of perpetrators have been British-Pakistani” in the towns where grooming cases against young girls have occurred.

The Labour MP for Rotherham, called for more Government research and added that the lack of action is because people are “more afraid to be called a racist than they are afraid to be wrong about calling out child abuse”.

Child sex abuse: Sarah Champion says race and culture ‘should be considered’

A fear of being called racist is preventing authorities considering whether culture or race is behind cases of child abuse, an MP has claimed.

Rotherham MP Sarah Champion was speaking after 17 men were convicted of forcing girls in Newcastle to have sex.

Mostly British-born, they are from Iraqi, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Indian, Iranian and Turkish communities.

Ms Champion said asking if there were “cultural issues” was simply “child protection”.

Northumbria Police said society “can’t be afraid to have this discussion”.

    How about all the people who knew this was happening but looked the other way or just said nothing ( all races…) They are just as Guilty.

  2. poetmorgan says:

    For ef’s sake, Islam is not a race and Islam is the garden in which these poison weeds grew!
    So where the ef is the racism.
    Are you rabbits hypnotised by the fox???

  3. Loudmouth says:

    No Ms Champion, we don’t need more research, what we need is more police forces like the one in Newcastle, whom use whatever resources they needed to catch these scum. More action, less understanding. Once again, another a Labour council, what a coincidence hey!!

    how long before its exposed in Sheffield ? its must be massive .

    What bugs me is where are all the left wingers, the feminists etc in this debate? As soon as you start getting close to the truth of the matter, they start parroting “racism!” and “islamaphobia!” when what is required is close, reasoned and honest social and theological analysis. This will help all communities mature without prejudice nor condemnation. But our route to maturing towards a solution is closed off by fear and childish doctrine. Meanwhile the victims continue to pile up and cry out. The left have truly lost both their bottle and their moral compass in this particular debate.

    We have known this for years and your party is one of the culprits.Lets just jump on the bandwagon Sarah.

  7. Xinsider says:

    I applaud Ms Champion for finally standing up to be counted. The ” floppy Left” would rather the abuse continued unabated than upsetting the scum who are responsible ! This attitude itself can reasonably be described as “racist” against the victims ! Read what one of the Newcastle rape gang shouted at the Judge as he was sentenced and you will see exactly what these savages think of our women and children !
    To bang on about a related matter, these men are not “paedophiles”, they are rapists, traffickers and drug dealers and should be treated and sentenced as such !!

  8. Colin Tawn says:

    Let’s rewind a few years.
    Men of Asian heritage grooming young girls.Council stays silent for fear of being labelled ‘racist’.
    Local MP’s are ”unaware” of the scale of abuse. Ring any bells?

    I hope Newcastle Council makes more effort rooting out the guilty ones than RMBC did..

  9. Albion says:

    A question for Ms Champion in the face of the blindingly obvious why has it taken you so long to say that Pakistani men are responsible for the large scale, organised rape of white children?
    Do stop using the term Asian origin, this is disrespectful to non-Pakistani men.
    The headline that has dominated the local, regional and national media is that the police paid an informer resulting in the details of the racist abuse of the children to be relegated to the inside pages.
    Ms Champion has stated that she is being subjected to hate messages via social media, some of them very serious, well South Yorkshire Police, you have the ability to trace the individuals, so go and track them down, enough is enough.
    This blog raised the crimes being committed against children in Rotherham, the result a nasty blog surfaced, Rotherham Bradford Politics, take a look at the comments on the blog.
    Rik`s home address was also made public and an intimidating terminator video published on-line.
    Take the time to view the comments on Rotherham Bradford Politics, they will make your flesh creep.
    Ask yourself what was the motivation of the people behind the blog and those making comments?

    I am sure Muhbeen and Vakas were contributors to this awful blog along with Jahangir and Donald!
