A researcher was sent on a diversity awareness course – and faced the sack – for raising the alarm about the appalling abuse of children in Rotherham and the fact most of the perpetrators were of Pakistani descent, it has been reported.
Some 1,400 children were abused between 1997 and 2013 in the South Yorkshire town, including cases of them of being made to witness brutal rapes, being covered in petrol and threatened with being set alight, according to a devastating report last week.
Many of the victims were young girls in care of the council – which was accused of “blatant” failures in not dealing with the problem.
The researcher, who was seconded to Rotherham Council from the Home Office in 2002, spoke to BBC Panorama anonymously and said she was told she must “never, ever” again mention the fact they most of the abusers were Asian men.
Rotherham Council even tried to have her sacked when she resisted pressure to change the findings of the report she completed, she said.
Just wait until they discover most Nazis were German.
