Rotherham Labour Council’s entire leadership has resigned following the publication of a damning report into the town’s child sexual exploitation scandal The report, said that the Labour authority was “not fit for purpose” after finding it has a culture of “bullying, sexism, suppression and misplaced ‘political correctness”‘. Following the publication of the report, which was written by Louise Casey, Rotherham Council’s ruling Labour cabinet issued a statement announcing the entire leadership was stepping down.

The child victim had been repeatedly raped before she found the courage to report her story to the police. She had tried to escape, but the perpetrators had broken her brother’s legs and smashed the windows of her parent’s home as a warning.
When she finally visited the police station, she received a text from her main abuser who made it perfectly clear what would happen to her 11-year-old sister if she spoke out. “Your choice,” he wrote repeatedly – and the girl refused to give a statement.
The case – from 2001 and detailed in today’s independent report – was the last straw for the Home Office researcher who had persuaded the young victim to go to the police. She wrote to the chief constable of South Yorkshire police and at a subsequent meeting with a senior officer and council staff was firmly told never to do such a thing again. When she handed in her research data to the Home Office, the council suspended her erroneously, and then sidelined her so that her part of a report on prostitution was never completed.

Former Marks and Spencer boss Stuart Rose accused Ed Miliband of returning Labour to the Seventies. Stuart Rose also advised Ipswich Borough Council on how to improve Ipswich town centre. Anti business Ipswich Labour took his suggestions and turned them into a dogs breakfast of pointlessness.
Also we found out that someone in business called Bill somebody supports Labour.
Yet worse was to come. Somebody in the audience on Labour’s media department’s flagship Labour propaganda programme, Question Time, said to Labour’s Tristrum Hunt “anyone who would trust you lot with the economy needs their brains tested.” Worse still, the editors some how missed it so it wasn’t edited out of the final programme.
