Female Genital Mutilation (FGM, "Female Circumcision") has been condemned by a report from the home affairs committee. Describing the situation as a "national scandal" and due to undue "cultural sensitivity" the committee, chaired by Keith Vaz MP, has called for tougher measures to be taken against those who carry out the practice on young girls. These tougher measures include the usual liberal knee jerk responses of educating the community, prosecution of those who don't report child abuse and more training for headmasters and teachers to recognise the signs of those in danger. Surprisingly there is a deafening silence from the 'Wimmin's ' movement on this issue. Even arch-feminist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown has been critical of the lack of interest shown by the feminist lobby in the issue.
The simple fact is that the liberal establishment is so far up it's collective a*** that it is frightened of doing anything that could upset the ethnic communities which engage in this revolting practice. The growing size of the ethnic voting population means that they can influence policy while the indigenous population can be relied upon to vote for their same old parties.
Meanwhile the ritual mutilation of children in the name of some primitive 'culture' goes on.
