Before he got punched in the face, George Galloway boasted that his constituency, Bradford West, was “Israel Free”.
Given the behavior of the locals, that may well be by choice, George:
Simon Danczuk, who helped expose a pattern of grooming of white teenage girls by men from a Pakistani background in Rochdale, where he is the Labour MP, said a culture of intimidation and closing of ranks within parts of the Asian community had mired politics in towns and cities across northern England for years.
He said Asian councillors were under constant pressure from the community to “conform” and other politicians acquiesced for fear of being accused of racism, failing to face up to evidence of abuse as a result.
Last week a scathing inquiry report said there had been a “blatant” failure of leadership from politicians and council officials in Rotherham over the sexual abuse of at least 1,400 children over 16 years.
The Rotherham scandal and a series of cases in towns including Rochdale highlighted how evidence of Pakistani men targeting white girls for abuse was repeatedly played down for fear of accusations of racism.
He said he had personally come under pressure from Asian councillors and members of the community for speaking out as well as being warned by prominent figures in his party.
He pointed to the way in which two Muslim councillors in Rochdale had provided character references for one of the perpetrators of the Rochdale abuse.
“Politics are done differently in Pakistan, it is a cultural difference we have imported some of that into some of these northern towns and cities and I think we have to face up to the fact that we can’t carry on doing politics like that.
Ann Cryer, the former MP for Keighley, said she had come under constant pressure from the “politically correct brigade” when she raised the issue.
Ann Cryer said that Ken Livingstone, the former Mayor of London, was among those who had challenged her for speaking about the issue.
Meanwhile it was reported that more than 100 babies were born as a result of girls being raped in Rotherham.
Sarah Champion, the current Rotherham MP, said one of the most upsetting aspects of the scandal was that babies born to some victims were taken away from them and their mothers will never see them again – something she said “spoke volumes” about how victims were treated.
So, the sexual enslavement of 1400 girls (and their 100 children bred by rape) by Pakistani men in South Yorkshire isn’t even the worst of the story. The cover-up and complicity of mainstream British politicians, mainly from the Left, over years is.
Go ahead, British lefties: judge Israel.
