Or politics.

Mind you makes Ferguson look pretty tame.

If it was a one off issue then it would be very sad.

You are grossly under estimating your responsibilities as OP.

Anyway, The Millers lost to Swansea in the League Cup. The fact that they are playing Brentford in New York on Saturday needs some explaining.

Blatant failures of political and police leadership contributed to the sexual exploitation of 1,400 children in Rotherham over a 16-year period, according to an uncompromising report published in the aftermath of allegations of gang rape and trafficking in the South Yorkshire town.

Written by Prof Alexis Jay, a former chief inspector of social work, the investigation concluded that the council knew as far back as 2005 of sexual exploitation being committed on a wide scale by mostly Asian men, yet failed to act.

This is the fourth report clearly identifying the problem of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham. The first, commissioned by the Home Office back in 2002, contained "severe criticisms" of the police and local council for their indifference to what was happening under their noses. But instead of tackling the issue, senior police and council officers claimed the data in the report had been "fabricated or exaggerated", and subjected the report's author to "personal hostility," leading to "suspicions of collusion and cover up", said Jay.

From the Guardian.

BBC radio 5 had an interview with a female relative of one of the men convicted. She raised some interesting issues around collusion in a male-dominated culture. The apparent cover-up obviously needs a full inquiry. I would think there was more to it than 'PC-ness', however this stick will obviously be used.

I have to say, given Aisha, that this kind of pisses me off.

Was it political correctness that hid and failed to investigate decades of abuse at numerous care homes across the country? Is that what protected Saville and his cohort? I am not sure it is that simple.

The scale of this suggests a bigger cover-up than simple delicacy over race to me.
