I am of the opinion that these child victims were of scant interest to the authorities because they were working class as much as because they were white and their abusers were non-white. Indeed it is this anti-working class bias which shows itself repeatedly in the attitude of the authorities as much as a PC motivated fear of being seen as anti-Asian. Remember the Harold Shipman affair? It was only when a former Lady Mayoress died and her solicitor daughter complained that the local Plod took the complaints seriously. When a close associate of mine was nursing his dying mother a couple of years ago he noticed that the patronising and superior attitude of Tameside "carers" and officials ceased when they saw his two graduation photographs (he has two degrees) and they realised he was not a "pleb".
The authorities can take action when they want. As I write this I am looking at a document called a "Child abduction warning notice" under section 2 of the Child Abduction Act 2002. It is a threatening notice produced by GMP. It basically warns the person on whom it is served to have no contact with a named child on pain of a seven year prison sentence . It does not mention that it is only on the express authority of the DPP (now the CPS) that a prosecution will be undertaken, evidently the notice is designed to intimidate the working class who have no access to friendly solicitors!
So there we have it. The authorities have let the community down, so who can the community rely on?
