Rotherham’s Labour MP, Sarah Champion, has suggested that by 2015, there may have been ‘up to a Million young girls that have been raped by gangs of men of mainly Pakistani ‘Asian’ origin’.

I am sure that anyone with a modicum of common sense, would agree that those numbers are simply staggering; a scandal on a level which should be unthinkable in a civilised society, and something which we, as a nation – should be thoroughly ashamed of.

If the following article is only partly correct, we have learned absolutely nothing, as this is still going on, and shows no visible signs of slowing down.

Grooming ‘epidemic’ as almost 19,000 children identified as sexual exploitation victims in England.

by Lizzie Dearden.

Almost 19,000 children have been sexually groomed in England in the past year, according to official figures that have prompted warnings of an ‘epidemic’. Campaigners say the true figure is far higher and accused the government of failing to tackle child sexual exploitation, despite promises made after high-profile cases in Rotherham and Rochdale.

More than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation were identified by local authorities in 2018-19, up from 3,300 five years before. Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, said that figures show that grooming “remains one of the largest forms of child abuse in this country”.

I am in no doubt whatsoever, that the blame for what has happened to these girls and young women, should sit firmly upon the shoulders of all of those who have turned a blind eye, and on those who have continually denied this problem even exists, and have smeared anyone who has been brave enough to stand up and speak out, as ‘racists’.

You know who you are……

 

There are not many people, who by now, are not aware of the image published on the Mirror website, which pictured a four-year-old child, with suspected pneumonia, lying on top of a pile of coats, upon the floor of a side room in Leeds General Infirmary.

The Mirror, then switches to the real purpose of its article:

Jack shows the human cost of the harshest ever financial squeeze on the NHS, a damning indictment of the Tories’ criminal neglect.

No wonder Jack’s mother is switching from the Tories to Labour on Thursday.

This article is then picked up with what appears to be indecent haste, and within hours, is being paraded around the mass media by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, and a small – but disturbingly fanatical – army of online activists and cheerleaders.

The article continues:

The staff are blameless, performing miracles despite the cuts. As are hard-pressed managers, coping best they can with the bad hands dealt them by successive Conservative regimes.

I am not going into the obvious issues with the NHS here, nor why it has reached what seems to be critical mass, there is plenty of source material available online, which explains in finite detail the real reasons behind that, and who is ultimately responsible.

What I am going to do is focus on is the image, and how it has been shamelessly weaponised by the Labour Party.

The image in question, has itself become the focus of claims as to its authenticity, and its context, inasmuch as a viral post on Facebook, which claims that the image was staged, has been gaining traction in the mass media.

The response to this online, is that the Facebook post, is of course, complete fiction, and is being circulated by, wait for it, ‘Right Wing Bots’.

One source of that claim, is a blogger calling himself ‘Tom Pride’, who has, for the last few years, been pumping hard-left propaganda focussing on the UK, and attacking anyone who does not support Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, from his base in Poland.

[Which of course does not mean that there is any suspicion whatsoever, of any ‘foreign interference’ in the electoral process, a claim that politicians and the mass media, on both sides of the Atlantic love to talk about.]

The truth of this, I am sure will emerge in the fullness of time, but the fact remains that using a distressed child as a political tool with which to attack political enemies, is a despicable thing to do.

It’s beneath contempt.

Neither side of the political divide are blameless in this, and it was not so long ago,  that the Grenfell fire tragedy was being utilised by both sides, in their attempts to point the finger of blame at each other.

Is it worth mentioning, that one of the reasons why many people believe that picture was ‘staged’ for the media, is because it’s not the first time that the Labour Party have posted faked and/or staged images for political gain?

Remember this one?

That doctored image, led to the party being investigated for spreading fake news, and were slammed by the NHS itself, as they had not sought permission to use its logo.

This image may be familiar too.

A blatant example of the use of a staged photograph of Jeremy Corbyn, sitting with a despondent look on his face, on the floor of a train, in a crass attempt to highlight the overcrowding on that particular railway network.

He was accused of ‘Hypocrisy’ and ‘spin’ by the Telegraph, after CCTV revealed that he did in fact have a seat, despite claiming that the train was so ‘ram packed’ he had to sit on the floor!

This post is not ‘Pro’ or ‘Anti’ anybody, I am on the whole, pretty much disgusted by the behaviour of all the political parties, who are scrabbling in the gutter, and clawing and biting and spitting bile at each other in their attempts to reach the moral high ground first.

They have all failed miserably on that score in my opinion.

There are, however, many positives to take from this, as it must now appear glaringly obvious to anyone, that politicians and political parties, of all colours; lie, cheat, mislead, spread fake news, stage photo opportunities, and above all of that, have shown utter contempt for the very people they claim to represent.

It’s little wonder that this country has become a laughing stock in the eyes of the rest of the world, and going on what is currently happening, and shows no sign of going away any time soon, the political class do not actually give a damn.


UPDATE: 

The campaign leading up to the 2019 General Election, or as many people view it, the ‘Brexit Election,’ has been one of the most vicious, propaganda-filled, mistruth littered, and ultimately damaging, this country has witnessed in living memory.

Every one of the main political parties have lied, to varying degrees, and have mislead the electorate on a number of important issues, but by far the most pernicious, (and grossly inaccurate) claim, made by Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party, is that Boris Johnson and the Conservative and Unionist Party, are ‘going to sell the InterNational Health Service to Donald Trump and the Americans’.

This claim was wholly predictable, however, and the Labour Party’s election campaign has focussed upon, and revolved entirely around this one issue, and it appears to be the only thing they have been able to effectively weaponise.

Your NHS.

On the surface, this untested, and unsubstantiated claim has had a remarkable effect, inasmuch as if more floating voters decide to fall for it, this country could be heading towards a hung parliament; which could mean that the hard-left socialists Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell, could obtain the keys to Downing Street, if, and only if, they are supported by an unholy alliance comprising of the Liberal Democrats, The Green Party, and the Scottish and Welsh Nationalists.

Which would, in the light of day, also mean at least four more years of public confusion, electoral chaos, in all possibility the economy crashing,  Brexit being put on hold, or scrapped altogether, which spits in the face of 17.4 Million of the electorate, and years more hardship and misery for millions of people who can least endure it.

So with that in mind, I would like to share the following video with you.

A video which, in my opinion, demolishes Jeremy Corbyn’s claim about the NHS entirely, and should, at the very least, make any person who cares about the truth, (and has grown sick and tired of the sheer arrogance and patronising attitudes shown to them by the current crop of politicians) think long and hard about who they really want – and ultimately trust – to take this once great country forward.
