Relevant, I suppose, to the last post by Cill. An alternate title for this post might be “Trouble between proto-PPPs and immigrant men”.
Action of a sort finally taken over the Rotherham
scandal fucking outrage. All of which stemmed from an inability for some people to put reality ahead of their ideology.
Rotherham Council closed down following sexual abuse failure
<blockquote>The Government has closed down ‘dysfunctional’ Rotherham Council until an election can be held in 2016, with all powers currently held by the council’s Cabinet to be transferred to Commissioners answerable to the Secretary of State for Local Government [Eric Pickles].
Eric Pickles made the announcement at the House of Commons today, after Rotherham was shown to have failed to protect children from being sexually abused by organised gangs from the town’s Kashmiri Pakistani community.
The Council has fourteen days to write to Pickles should they wish to object to the plan to bring in the five commissioners. He said he was taking the steps because the council was “seriously failing the people of Rotherham, and particularly the most vulnerable”.
Pickles said that he was minded to appoint the commissioners to replace the “wholly dysfunctional cabinet”. This means that all executive power currently held by democratically elected councillors would pass to the appointed officials if he presses ahead, which is all but guaranteed.</blockquote>
Just standby for most of the absolute fucking buffoons / traitors /ideologues to be re-relected by the local morons of all colours and ethnicities purely on the basis of their red (labour party) rosettes. Just as they did with the replacement police commissioner.
Last August, the Jay report commissioned by Rotherham Council to investigate child sexual exploitation within Rotherham was published. It found that 1,400 vulnerable children had been groomed, trafficked, raped, and in a few cases even murdered at the hands of mostly men from the Pakistani community.
In her report, Jay noted: “It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated. There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.”
In response to the Jay report, Communities and Local Government Secretary Eric Pickles commissioned an independent report into whether Rotherham Council was fit for purpose, led by Louise Casey. That report has today been published.
According to Casey, she found a council “in denial. They denied that there had been a problem, or if there had been, that it was as big as was said. If there was a problem they certainly were not told – it was someone else’s job. They were no worse than anyone else. They had won awards. The media were out to get them.”
The conclusion she therefore reached is that Rotherham Borough Council is “not fit for purpose,” and had failed to “accept, understand and combat the issue of Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), resulting in a lack of support for victims and insufficient action against known perpetrators.”
This afternoon, Pickles told the Commons that the report “presents a disturbing picture of a council failing in it’s duty to protect vulnerable children and young people from harm. It reveals the councils failure of past and present to accept, understand and, combat the crime of child sexual exploitation.
“It concludes that this culture of denial is intrinsic and has resulted in a lack of support for victims and a lack of action against known perpetrators. It also confirms a complete failure of political and officer leadership in Rotherham.”
He continued “There is a pervading culture of bullying, sexism, suppression, and misplaced political correctness which has cemented the council’s failures. Members and officers lack the confidence to tackle difficult issues for fear of being seen as racist or upsetting community cohesion.”
And he said that the report led him to conclude that “the council is currently incapable of tackling it’s weaknesses without substantial intervention.”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should reject even the smallest steps toward entryism by Social Justice Weasels ‘SJW’s. #Gamergate has proven that such resistance is not futile in the least.
