Rotherham: politics ‘imported from Pakistan’ fuelled sex abuse cover-up
clear

From the Telegraph

An unhealthy brand of politics “imported” from Pakistan is partly to blame for the cover-up of mass child abuse in Rotherham and other British cities, a campaigning MP has claimed.

Simon Danczuk ... said a culture of intimidation and closing of ranks within parts of the Asian community had mired politics in towns and cities across northern England for years. He said Asian councillors were under constant pressure from the community to “conform” and other politicians acquiesced for fear of being accused of racism, failing to face up to evidence of abuse as a result.

“There are cultural issues around the way politics are done in the Asian community which have to change,” he said. He said he had personally come under pressure from Asian councillors and members of the community for speaking out as well as being warned by prominent figures in his party.

He pointed to the way in which two Muslim councillors in Rochdale had provided character references for one of the perpetrators of the Rochdale abuse. “Politics are done differently in Pakistan, it is a cultural difference we have imported some of that into some of these northern towns and cities and I think we have to face up to the fact that we can’t carry on doing politics like that. . . " 

He described it as “a looking after your own” within the Asian community which other politicians had accepted. “Pressure was applied, that’s what will have happened to Denis MacShane and he went along with it,” 

Mr Danczuk called for his party to carry out its own inquiry into who knew what about the abuse and when. His outspoken remarks came amid claims that prominent Labour Party figures attempted to silence the few politicians who spoke out about the issue.

Ann Cryer, the former MP for Keighley, said she had come under constant pressure from the “politically correct brigade” when she raised the issue. Ann Cryer said that Ken Livingstone, the former Mayor of London, was among those who had challenged her for speaking about the issue. 

Ken lives like a Muslim with his harem of three women and numerous children, kept in line with a slap. The issue of northern towns run by 'Paki politics' is explored here (Dewsbury) and can be seen further south in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets

Back outside Rotherham Police Station, while local residents are supportive there has been intimidation by 'Asian' men in cars, believed to be taxi drivers, making bang-bang noises and gestures as they drive past. Last night, so a reliable source tells me, this escalated into shots fired from a BB gun. No one was seriously hurt and the police have the numberplate of the car.
