…The Rotherham Council dithered, despite having a very good idea of what was going on, for fear of being labeled racist, as “a majority” of the men accused were “Asian,” i.e. Muslim.
The thing is, in that case, is that the councilors are the very people themselves who would have cried racism. Take a look: the Rotherham Council is almost entirely Labour.
(Two Conservatives, although there are a few UKIP members, undoubtedly late additions.) So they didn’t stay silent out of fear; no, they themselves are the very ones who would have done the accusing.
They stayed silent because it suited their leftist, nation-busting ideology. And please note that no one on the council or the police is facing any disciplinary action whatsoever…
