Oh, for a fearless champion of the downtrodden, abused and forgotten. Someone to take up the fight, root all the perpetrators out of our society and into jail or on to the next plane back to wherever they came from after having their British passports burned in front of them. Someone to shake the complacent and incompetent out of their cushy jobs in the police, social services or wherever else the useless parasites have settled themselves.
So how about it, all you politicians of every stripe? This is your bag. We entrust you with the power to make things happen. You are in charge. So you are the ones with a golden opportunity to stand up for the truth and the human rights of the most vulnerable, and clean up this unholy mess. Why else are you in politics in the first place?
So who is up for the job? Who wants to make themselves into heroes and get every right minded person in the country and beyond on their side? Boris, with your newly won thumping majority and no opposition worth the name? No better time to act, is there? Priti, who has the portfolio, the budget and the power to knock heads together and clean out the stables? All you worthy females vying for leadership of the supposed party of the working class, and who never lose any opportunity to trumpet your feminist credentials and your concern for the members of your own sex oppressed by the patriarchy? Do you know what leadership really looks like? What about the rest of you 650 seat polishers and oxygen wasters down Westminster way? You all make yourselves experts at what expenses you can claim. How about earning them by doing something valuable for a change? Or you, Andy Burnham, are you not the mayor of the city whose once good name now stands tainted by this filth? What are you going to do about it?
Will a champion emerge? Or will we be given another demonstration of widespread, entrenched feebleness and cowardice from those with big mouths but nothing behind them?

And of course those who made those decisions in the police and social services will have quietly moved onwards and upwards, escaping any censure.
‘Lessons have been learned’ they’ll parrot, yet again. Infuriating. Until public sector employees are forced to take responsibility for their decisions nothing will change.
The aspect that receives so little attention in the media of this undeniable scandal is the part played by politicians in creating the toxic atmosphere for police and public servants such as social workers that meant even the merest hint of a complaint about ‘racism’ could be career-ending. The unjustified, unproven and undeserved label of ‘institutional racism’, itself a phrase never before heard in public, was hung around their necks like the bell worn by lepers in biblical times. The consequences could have been predicted had any politician bothered to stop polishing their moral certainties and given it just a moment’s thought. Why would any public servant, working to put food on to their family’s table like the rest of us, put that at risk when it was clear that should they be the subject of any complaint by a member of an identifiable ethnic or religious minority, the presumption of guilt had been effectively overturned and not in their favour? Would you?
From grooming gangs by predominantly Muslim men of Pakistani and Bangladeshi origins to violent knife crimes by predominantly Afro-Caribbean and mixed race young men, much of it has been enabled by the lack of support that the political and establishment classes have extended, indeed actively withdrawn, from those charged with the unenviable task of tackling them. If there were to be any kickback from enforcement efforts the indications were that those causing the waves would be hung out to dry. The media has been, and remains, complicit in the deception that it is ‘Asian’ men rather than only one section of the Asian community, its Islamic component, that is responsible for this nationwide abuse of vulnerable white girls on an industrial scale. Were it the other way round and young Muslim girls being preyed upon by gangs of far-right white men, their specific allegiances would be shouted from the rooftops without any equivocation. Why is Islam seemingly given a free pass like this? This scandal goes to the very heart of multi-cultural failings to integrate into British social life and is the very definition of race crime, but it seems that the architects of the situation will, as ever, escape the scrutiny and censure they so richly deserve while those lower down the pecking order of public service will carry the entire can.
