Dear Rotherham Politics Readers,
While the deafening silence continues from Da Leedah and Town Clerk on the continuing problem of child sexual exploitation in our Borough, along comes Ann Coffey MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults, who has authored a wide-ranging and damning report which highlights the present dangers so well – http://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/sites/default/files/tcs/u32/joint_appg_inquiry_-_report…pdf
Family Law Week have produced a worrying, but informative article which explains the background to the report and its recommendations – http://www.familylawweek.co.uk/site.aspx?i=ed98584
And so back to Rovrum and what do we as parents, voters, citizens and taxpayers, get from our well-paid junketing political and civic leedahz, Da Dodger and Rimtan Rembik the Town Clerk?
Zilch, nichts, nien, nyet, non, nahin – nothing at all but – CONTINUED SILENCE.
Wake up, wake up, wake up, you lazy corpulent idling good-for-nothing apologies of highly-paid Elected Members and Officers at Town Hall Towers, the agony of our town’s children continues while you draw your toxic salaries and say and do nothing.
While contemplating the continuing deafening wall of silence coming from Town Hall Towers on the appalling sexual exploitation and grooming of young women and children which is still manifest among our midst, and the huge vacuum caused by an absent, literally and metaphorically, Leedah, I came across this most relevant and apt piece of advice from the world-renowned business guru, the great Tom Peters.
When I watched it I could not help but reflect on the difference of approaches which Tom advises people to follow when dealing with a problem, which is at total variance to Da Dodger’s “tell em nowt rayt, dunt say owt reight, unless it’s abart Dolly Twin Peaks, right”.
Anyway let Rotherham Politics readers work out for themselves whether Tom’s wise words would prove helpful for the secretive, junketing, highly-paid and ineffective Corn Fed Grunters, Muppets and Clowns at Town Hall Towers.
I offer this link as an active and empowered citizen at no cost to the civic purse and as part of my civic duty as a “highly critical friend” of RMBC Elected Members and Officers.
For readers that can get behind the paywall, the rest of us will have to buy the print edition in the morning.
A parliamentary inquiry into the sexual exploitation of children was announced yesterday after MPs were told that thousands of victims have been identified across the country. The scale of the abuse was revealed as a Commons committee listened to evidence of failings by the police, prosecutors and care professionals that allowed a grooming ring to sexually abuse dozens of girls in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Nine men, eight of Pakistani heritage and an illegal asylum seeker from Afghanistan, were jailed last month for numerous child-sex offences in the town and surrounding areas. Their trial came after an investigation by The Times into a hidden pattern of group offending against vulnerable girls, usually white and aged from 12 to 16, across northern England and the Midlands. Most of the…
- Demand for debate
- Sex gang report
- Daughter’s grooming described
- Judges told to protect victims
- Raped, pimped and driven to suicide
Well spotted by a contributor, Thanks.
Here’s a brave WOMAN who’s prepared to stand-up and make the country and MPs publicly aware that young women are indeed being systematically sexually abused, and by whom.
Note how she clearly refers to the perpetrators, she doesn’t shy away “in the interests of community cohesion”, unlike Rotherham’s “Nelson’s Eye” Elected Members and Officers.
And what do we have here in Rotherham? Deafening silence from the civic political leadership and civic professionals paid toxic salaries to ensure the welfare of the town’s women and children – with the exception of Cllr Jahangir Akhtar, who’s been left to stand in the mire while his Corpulent Clown of a Leedah jollies off out of town – AGAIN!!
And still deafening silence from the town’s female Labour Councillors who haven’t yet issued a statement or a promise to take a stand and protect their sisters in the town.

COMPLAINT/CONCERN TO THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF RMBC
As an active and empowered citizen ratepayer and unpaid community volunteer with an interest in scrutinising and challenging the costs and activities of those who seek public office in the well-rewarded capacity of RMBC Elected Members and Officers, I am seeking reassurance that RMBC discharges its legal duties of care in relation to the town’s women and children, particularly in the light of the damning Serious Case Review which RMBC has recently unsuccessfully sought to suppress via a High Court Injunction.
In that regard I have accessed the RMBC website – http://www.rotherham.gov.uk/info/200036/domestic_violence/738/domestic_violence/2 – to peruse the policies, statements, consultations and protocols that exist in relation to safeguarding Rotherham’s women and children.
I am appalled to discover that when accessing the above website, and reading the following: “The Safer Rotherham Partnership (SRP) is pleased to release, for consultation, its Strategy to Eliminate Violence against Women and Girls and welcomes all comments or observations you have before 10th December, 2010” that the “Strategy” link produces the following result:
Sorry, the website http://www.rotherhamrightmix.co.uk cannot be found
I require you to:
1. provide me an explanation for the failure of RMBC’s corporate website to provide the statutory information alluded to, and
2. an explanation of what steps you intend to take to ensure that the statutory information is easily accessible via electronic means.
In order to ensure civic efficiency and preserve the public purse from any unnecessary cost I wish you to deal with this issue as a Concern/Complaint, and NOT as a Freedom of Information Request with your customary spurious notional cost attachments.
