By Stephen Palmer – A police report that revealed the Muslim grooming of 60 white girls went unpublished due to fears of offending the Islamic community, it has been reported.
The report identified eleven takeaway shops in Blackpool that Muslim workers used as "honey pots", where the Asian men preyed on and sexually assaulted young white schoolgirls as young as eleven.
The unpublished report was commissioned after the disappearance of fourteen-year-old Charlene Downes in 2003, for which two Middle Eastern takeaway owners were acquitted in 2007.
The same men still run a kebab shop in Blackpool, which was also linked to Paige Chivers, a fifteen-year-old girl who went missing in 2007. Detectives believe she was killed like Charlene, whose body has never been found.
Details released of recent court cases in thirteen towns showed that out of 56 men convicted of multiple offences of grooming girls for sex, 50 were Muslim, and most were Pakistani.
Former Detective Superintendent Mick Gradwell warned that research into the problem was hampered by “political correctness and concerns about upsetting community cohesion”.
However, despite the cover-up, local police and council workers still maintained a politically correct front.
Lancashire Assistant Chief Constable Andy Rhodes said his officers were making significant progress in such cases “regardless of the background of the culprits” and would only say that the number of “Asian” offenders is “disproportionate to the population”.
David Lund, Blackpool's Director of Children, Adult and Family Services, even made the outrageous claim that “children in Blackpool are now safer than they’ve ever been” due to the town’s Awaken Project, which was set up supposedly to deal with exploitation of children, one year after Charlene’s disappearance.
He said: "It was identified that children were potentially at risk from sexual exploitation, which led to Blackpool Council and Lancashire Constabulary pledging to tackle the problem head on by establishing the Awaken Project.
“The project has received national acclaim and is now a model which other authorities have adopted."
Of course, of the scant information available on the Awaken Project from either Blackpool Council or Lancashire Police, none of it features any reference to Asians, Muslims, Middle Easterners, Pakistanis, or anyone other than white people.
In fact, one of the very few documents available online, a PowerPoint presentation given by Awaken staff, only makes mention to “white males” being the main perpetrators of sexual crime and doesn’t mention any other races. Far from “tackling the problem head on”, all this information does is confirm the police and council’s commitment to political correctness and cowardly racist cover-ups.
Charlene Downes's mother Karen said she was shocked by the report: "It's absolutely terrible. I think something should have been done before the Awaken Project, it is a shame something wasn't done beforehand."
