Why is no one to blame for the Rotherham scandal?

WHILE senior figures at Rotherham council blindly ignored the truth about the sex scandal engulfing their town – or in some cases allegedly covered it up – 1,400 girls were abused, mainly by men from Pakistani backgrounds.

Even that went unspoken for fear of being seen as racist or politically incorrect.

Official reports published yesterday reveal that the appalling child exploitation went unchecked for 16 years as council executives failed to do their jobs properly.
