If I say the word Rotherham to you, unless you have yet to catch the headlines last night or this morning, than you will be, no doubt, disgusted by what has come to light.
It was revealed yesterday that children as young as 11, in fact 1,400 of them (or that's what we know of), have been used a currency by a gang of Asian males. They were raped repeatedly, and passed between friends in different towns between 1997 and 2013.
That in itself in the modern world we live in is disgraceful.
But the story takes an even more "are you fucking kidding me" angle when we find out that Social Workers- those whom are responsible for the welfare of those unable to care for it themselves, knew about the attacks. Did they intervene?
Well, you'd think owing to their job description they would have done without question. But they didn't. They did nothing. Not one thing. Hence the length of time and severity of the attacks on these 1,400 children (again, we know of these, but I would not be at all surprised that there are more who are still too scared to come forward).
According to reports, the main leader of this pack of, and I'm not sorry if this offends, and would invite you to get the hell off my blog and never return if it does or you sympathise with these men in anyway, utter animals walked around like he was King of the World. He was well aware that the Social Services knew, and well aware they stood by and let it happen. He goaded them frequently according to reports. He knew they knew and did nothing, so he simply carried on, safe in the knowledge that he could do what he wanted and not face what rightfully should have happened (and has, thankfully, now happened) and be jailed.
So, why did this carry on for so long? Why were so many of these poor kids allowed to have their lives ruined forever for the sick sexual desires of these freaks? (again, not sorry for offence, they're freaks).
Its that word again, the one we hear over and over increasingly when the Powers That Be who are meant to protect the rest of us fail.
They were scared about being accused of racism. More scared of that than of what was happening to these children.
One could ask how they could sleep at night, knowing that this was going on, under their noses.
Do they have kids themselves?
To top it all off, and to further reinstall that racism is more important that children's welfare in this country these days, how many have been sacked, resigned or given their wages back?
Out of a whole department of people, paid to do a job, one person, the head, has resigned.
You can see this being a Sharon Shoesmith all over again.
And what are our mates the Tories doing? Are they sacking people?
Are they feck.
If it's not an excuse to kick a disabled person or similar, they don't care.
Its the usual round of solemn looks to camera and "lessons will be learnt" yet again.
Yet these lessons are not learnt.
I'm not a racist person. Far from it. But I really hate that these so called do gooders are ruining the country by marking everything as racist at the drop of a hat, meaning people are too scared to speak up and people like these sick individuals can walk around, knowing that, should they have their collars felt they can cry racism and it all goes away.
No doubt the same will be true when the deluded UK ISIS fighters decide they've quite had enough of beheading people are raping and pillaging a land they've probably not had family members in for decades and want their cushy UK lives back.
Frankly, they should have their passports revoked but it wont happen.
This time, we do actually need a public referendum on what constitutes racism. What levels it takes and when this is nothing compared to what children like those in Rotherham (and no doubt other boroughs we're yet to hear about), some of whom had petrol thrown over them when they told their attackers they would speak up, have had to go through and the future they face trying to live a normal life.
And you can't help thinking, had these children have been mates of David Cameron's party members, this would have all been dealt with a lot quicker.
I leave you, disgusted that this story has happened in the UK, a supposedly civilised country. And hoping that, these poor mites may be left alone and never failed again.
