Jo Burton is in denial and gets her nappy in a knot..

Jo Burton was Senior Adviser to Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services (May 2005 to May 2007), Vice-Chair of Children and Young People’s Services Scrutiny Panel (May 2007 to May 2009) and a member of the  Children and Young People’s Strategic Partnership (2007 to 2008). In her letter to the Worksop Guardian she says “For the record, I have never been part of the Safeguarding Board and neither has Councillor Dalton”. Very disingenuous of Burton, the Safeguarding Board was not mentioned by Mrs. Sadler but CSE was.

Dinnington resident Dave Smith has written a very well worded and accurate reply to Jo Burton which exposes her duplicity.

Shaun Wright was appointed as the Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services in 2005. He appointed Cllr.Burton as the Senior Adviser to Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services (May 2005 to May 2007). Leader of RMBC Paul Lakin said last Thursday (16th October) “The Senior Advisor would have the same information as the Cabinet Member”. According to Professor Alexis Jay’s investigation, he (Wright) commissioned a series of reports directly addressing the problem of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in the town while in office. All made abundantly clear that large numbers of children were being groomed for sex by gangs of mainly Asian males. In June 2007 he received a report on the “Protection of Young People from Sexual Assault in Rotherham”. The report was referred to the children and young people’s scrutiny panel and to the safeguarding board, which decided that a training seminar would be held in July for council members.

In July 2008, after receiving the annual report on the protection of young people in Rotherham from sexual exploitation, Wright called for a further report on the budget of Risky Business, a specialist unit of youth workers set up to tackle CSE in 1997. In November 2008 yet another CSE report appeared on his desk, followed by another in January 2009, by the director of targeted services.

Jo Burton is desperately trying to turn attention away from herself and denying any knowledge of the CSE scandal by resorting to the Labour party tactic of attacking the questioner instead of answering the question.

  9. The truth will come out, what it needs is for local people to ask the right questions again and again about the real issues that affect people’s lives instead of carping on about Anston Day and hanging baskets all the time.

  10. Jo Burton admitted at a recent Anston Parish Council Meeting that she used to visit Risky Business – Therefore she would have known absolutely about Rotherham’s Child Sexual Exploitation – AND she still sees herself fit to represent Anston on the Parish & Borough and Councils.
    Q – Why
    A,- The money – she says “I need it, it is my income.”
