Nothing has changed in Rotherham

The launch of the #1400 campaign was both exciting and heart breaking.  Exciting that we were in the House of Lords and finally raising the awareness of the rape of children by gangs of Muslim men. But heart breaking because so few people care enough to do something about this phenomenon.

There is one thing that should unite us all, and that is the desire to protect children from abuse and rape, yet many of the people we invited didn’t turn up to the launch. In fact, charities, mainstream media and publicly funded groups that proclaim to be against hate, didn’t even afford us the courtesy of replying to our invite. Is this because Lord Pearson was hosting, and because he tells uncomfortable truths about Islam so he is seen as a ‘controversial’ figure and someone to be ignored? 

When those in power are doing nothing to protect children from the rape gangs, then it is left to ordinary people to try and make a difference.  

Elizabeth and I have a passion to help those who are still suffering. The idea for the national helpline in the short term is to sign-post callers to the relevant safeguarding agencies, and in the medium to long term, to actually offer counselling over the phone to those who need it.

We have also set up a GoFundMe as one of the aims of the #1400 campaign is to raise funds to provide access to counselling, therapy and psychological services to the victims, survivors and their families in Rotherham.

If you have read the Alexis Jay Report then you will know what horrors these children suffered, and if you haven’t read the report then may I suggest that you do. It may horrify you to know that many people think that because a report has been produced, the problem is being dealt with. We heard from various sources that the problem in Rotherham, as elsewhere, is not only continuing but is probably worse. There has been no affirmative action taken since the report to address what was highlighted within it. 

Rarely do we read about what the Muslim rape gangs inflict on these children - raped with broken bottles, raped by up to 50 men in one night, taken to fields and gang raped and then dumped, beaten black and blue, burnt with cigarettes, the list of brutality goes on and yet the appropriate level of outrage is nowhere to be seen. Why is this?

If gangs of white men were raping white children in this manner, then we would be rightly outraged. If gangs of white men were raping Muslim children then the streets of Britain would be on fire. Politicians, the media and all the supposed charities and ‘anti hate’ groups would be keeping the spotlight on it daily, and rightly so.

Jayne Senior makes a valid point and I quote:

"If we’d have had 1400 children in Rotherham that had been groomed, I don’t know, to say join ISIS, we would have had money, we would have had resources, and we’d have had the most specialist professional counsellors from across the world, coming in to ‘de-radicalise’ those children. But yet we have had 1400 children raped and abused and we are begging and scratching for funding to put the right therapy in."
