The obscene and depraved actions of a section of the immigrant community in Rochdale, who have been involved in gang raping vulnerable children has disgusted and appalled just about everybody in the land whatever their background. I'm not going to address the leniency of their sentences, but Thoughts Of John does a good job about that HERE.
But what I want to address now is the apparent craven appeasemnet to the self righteous god of political correctness that prevented this obscenity from being stopped in its tracks way back in 2002. (yes .. ten years ago) see Guardian Here and Telegraph Here
It would appear that from 2002 to today, the authorities have been less concerned about the abduction, rape and brutalisation of vulnerable children than they were about offending the harridan demands of a group of immigrants who have no wish or intent of adopting the basic moral concepts that epitomise this group of countries known as the UK.
I am not particularly religious, but one outstanding image from Christiantity is how Pontius Pilate washed his hands and so betrayed an innocent man rather than offend the political correctness of his day.
It would appear that today we have many Pontius Pilates, all willing to betray the innocent to appease the harridan cries from the persecutors.
This gangrenous boil must be lanced.
This must involve a public enquiry.
This inquiry must apportion blame where it is due, especially to those who were in high office and washed their hands for political expediency - or to meet a hidden agenda. The guilty are not only the rapists. But also includes those who when in government, for political expediency, have turned a blind eye and so aided and abetted these crimes.
In 1936 a Spanish Republican Civl war poster raged against crimes against children.
The bye line to this poster was later made famous by the great Welsh Rock band "The Manic Street Preachers"
The byeline was (of course)
"If You Tolerate this, Your children will be next".
Well, In Rochdale, it looks like it was tolerated.
Our children, our poor vulnerable children in Rochdale, were next.
