Betrayed Girls: Rochdale grooming gang scandal

The BBC’s harrowing documentary The Betrayed Girls shows how political correctness stopped the authorities from taking action against child sex abuse in Rochdale.

The documentary follows on from the BBC drama Three Girls.

In May 2012, a jury at Liverpool Crown Court found nine Muslim men guilty of the grooming, rape and sex trafficking of vulnerable teenage girls in the Rochdale area.

The distressing BBC documentary reveals how the police, social services, and prosecutors ignored and abandoned the victims of the Rochdale grooming gang.

Many journalists and ‘professionals’ admitted on camera that they ignored the warnings from the British National Party  (BNP) about what was going on.

The journalist who led The Times investigation into the Rochdale grooming gang scandal was Andrew Norfolk.

After hearing about what was going on, he initially took the decision not to investigate.

Political correctness held him back.

Andrew said, “‘I allowed my liberal fear about giving succour [assistance] to the BNP to act as a brake on doing my job”.

Sara Rowbotham

The Manager of the Rochdale Crisis Intervention Team 2003-2014 was Sara Rowbotham.

She features prominently in The Betrayed Girls.

Sara reported more than 180 incidents of underage sexual abuse to the police and social services.

They ignored her warnings.

The BBC drama series Three Girls dramatised her struggle.

After the case was over, Sara learned that she was ‘excluded from future initiatives on child grooming’.

She was then made redundant!

Furthermore, Sara wanted to become Rochdale’s Labour parliamentary candidate at the 2017 general election.

The Labour Party turned her down.

However, Sara is now a councillor for Rochdale Borough Council.

Mr Afzal was the Chief Prosecutor of the Crown Prosecution Service for North West England from 2011–15.

He successfully reopened the Rochdale grooming gang case and prosecuted those involved.

Nazir Afzal was also responsible for the prosecution of former BBC presenter Stuart Hall.

Maggie Oliver

The Betrayed Girls includes interviews with former Detective Constable Maggie Oliver.

She battled for years to get the Greater Manchester Police to do something about the Rochdale grooming gangs.

They ignored her efforts.

Eventually, Maggie Oliver resigned in disgust at the Crown Prosecution Service’s mishandling of the case.

Manchester Evening News

“Nobody was ever able to explain to me why the case had been dropped. I wanted to know because I’ve got four kids of my own. I believe if you don’t prosecute paedophiles you are leaving them free to abuse children for decades to come. As a result, I swore I’d never get involved in a job like that again”.

The Trial

Defence lawyers accused the girls of acting like prostitutes.

In May 2012, nine men were convicted at Liverpool Crown Court.

The convictions were for sexual assault, conspiracy to engage in sexual activity with a child, sex trafficking, and rape.

Sentences ranged from 5 years to 22 years.

Four of those convicted have now been given legal aid to fight deportation back to Pakistan!

One of those convicted was an illegal immigrant from Afghanistan.

It’s unclear how many of the others were illegal immigrants.

If any of them were here legally, then why?

As far as I am aware, Pakistan was not a war zone when they came to this country.

So they were not refugees.

Many of them were taxi drivers.

However, I don’t believe there is a severe shortage of taxi drivers in this country.

So, who made the decision to grant them residence in Britain and why?

Betrayed Girls: Political Correctness Gone Mad

The Betrayed Girls shows that political correctness held back the police, social services, and the Crown Prosecution Service.

They were all frightened of being called ‘racist’ or ‘Islamophobic’.

In the following clip from The Betrayed Girls, Ann Cryer (former Labour MP for Keighley) explains that some of her Labour Party colleagues called her a ‘racist’ for raising the issue of Pakistani grooming gangs in her constituency:

Political correctness was the reason why vulnerable young girls did not get help and support.

Indeed, the police advised one girl who made a complaint to go on a ‘diversity’ training course!

Betrayed Girls: Conclusion

What happened in Rochdale is just the tip of the iceberg.

Men of mainly Pakistani origin abducted, tortured, and raped thousands of young white girls in the North of England (especially Rotherham).

It’s still happening and shows no sign of slowing down.

In April 2016, there was yet another Rochdale grooming case.

This underage sexual abuse is the uncomfortable truth that the liberal left refuses to face.

The Betrayed Girls documentary demonstrates that the multicultural utopia that many on the Left have always dreamed about is crumbling before their very eyes.

Even the most obsessive proponents of Multiculturalism should now admit its disastrous failure.

It’s no wonder then, that more than 85% of the British public agree with the BNP that immigration is too high.

Immigration is the greatest threat to our precious and unique British identity.

The BNP is the ONLY political party you can trust to stop immigration.

Britain’s full and it’s time to shut the door!
