Channel 4 reporter Ciaran Jenkins attempts to question the former Rotherham council leader Paul Lakin over the damning child sex abuse report.
It is soon very clear that Lakin wants to run away and hide. No change there. Further on Jenkins questions Labour councillors on the steps of the Town Hall and it will not come as any surprise that at least two of them do not accept the Casey report and are in denial. Why would an innocent person refuse to speak to a TV reporter and put their side of the argument? It is accepted that denying there is a problem does not make it go away. Hence the repeated statements by Burton, Dalton and St.John: ‘We did not know’. Sorry guys and gals, the Jay report and the Casey report say otherwise. In her report Alexis Jay states quite firmly “No one can say they did not know”. End of. It is interesting to note that not a single Labour councillor has the courage to give an interview to any media outlet to explain what went wrong and why RMBC allowed these crimes against children to continue.
Anston’s Floundering Four-Beck,Burton,Dalton and St.John are involved in lesser or greater degrees with the CSE scandal that has crushed Rotherham and until these people and every other Labour dinosaur councillor is removed and swept away with the rest of the rubbish Rotherham cannot move on and make a fresh start. The Labour party is discredited in Rotherham by the scandal of turning a blind eye to Pakistani grooming-rape gangs whilst accepting large numbers of fraudulent votes secured for them by former Asian councillors. Who may be prosecuted for other crimes.
Meanwhile Miliband stays silent.
