Outrage as UKIP claims Labour ignored sexual abuse of children

Will Labour sue (again)?

Last time, UKIP was reduced to near-bankruptcy. If Labour takes action this time, any damages awarded could finish off the anti-Europe party for good.

Opponents of the Labour Party seem keen to throw wild accusations; a Tory leaflet has suggested that Labour brought “hepatitis” to Dudley.

The Conservative candidate involved – Kamran Razzaq – has been suspended as a Conservative candidate.

What will UKIP do?

Ukip has been accused of making “completely untrue and grossly offensive” claims after it suggested Labour had ignored sexual abuse of children in towns and cities across the country.

A leaflet distributed by the party ahead of local elections on Thursday claimed “politically-correct” Labour councils had “looked the other way” while grooming gangs “raped our daughters”.

It listed 16 areas Ukip claimed had suffered from sex abuse scandals under Labour councils, adding: “Labour has betrayed us.”

The leaflets, seen by The Independent, were distributed in Rochdale, where 19 men were convicted in recent years for abusing at least 47 girls.

The claims were furiously denied by Labour, which said they were designed to distract from Ukip’s “descent into irrelevance”. Ukip provided no evidence to support the allegations.

A similar claim made by a Ukip MEP about three Labour MPs led to her being successfully sued for libel, leaving the party on the verge of bankruptcy.

    These nasty twisted and warped minds have nothing at all to offer, so they apply their warped and twisted minds to malicious libel and slander.

    How many Labour Councillors and supporters were kicked out of Labour after Rotherham, one, two, none? In thirty eight Labour councils thousands of English schoolgirls were raped by Pakistani and Bangladeshi males How many Labour Councillors were kicked out Did anyone in the local social services get kicked out? Margaret Hodge the Labour MP for Barking and Dagenham is alleged to have known about the child abuse scandal in Islington Not only was she selected to represent Barking and Dagenham she was promoted to Children’s Minister by the then Labour govt. The only comment in the house of commons Jeremy Corbyn has made about child sexual abuse was to complain about an MP daring to mention child sexual abuse in the house of commons regarding a constituency that wasn’t his Check your facts Labour have a long record of ignoring child sexual abuse

      I think you should check YOUR facts.
      Do you have any evidence of Labour knowing about child sexual abuse going on in wards held by its members? No.
      Do you have any evidence of Labour deliberately ignoring evidence of child sexual abuse? No.
      If you did, then you can be assured someone would have taken action to bring those councillors to account.
      Can you prove Margaret Hodge knew about child abuse in Islington? No.
      If you could, she would be facing a major investigation of her own.

        Read the report finally carried out into the rape of English schoolgirls in Rotherham, check how many Labour councilors were forced to resign. Margaret Hodge was and is strongly alleged to have known about the child abuse committed in Islington It was certainly known by Tony Blair when he insulted the working class by promoting her to children’s minister. There is no chance allegations made about Janner will ever be proven but very few doubt he was another child rapist As for Corbyn he is known to have been told about the child abuse allegations in Islington. He neither did or said anything about child abuse until Geoffrey Dickins had the temerity to mention the child abuse allegations in a constituency that wasn’t his in the house of commons where Corbyn rose to his heroic feet and condemned him for interfering in another constituency. A pity you don’t seem to check your heroes more thoroughly or at all

        If a scandal becomes public, those in positions of responsibility may resign because they were not aware of it – and should have been. In that case, no complicity can be implied.
        You have produced no hard evidence against Margaret Hodge. Therefore you have none against Tony Blair (in this matter, at least).
        How do you know what Jeremy Corbyn knew, said or did? Did you get it from our mainstream media? If so, that’s hardly supportable evidence.
        What a pity you seem keen to believe any slightest piece to tittle-tattle that goes against someone you don’t like.

      3. pippakin

        You don’t appear to have read up on the many child rape atrocities by Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslim males in towns and cities across England 38 of those towns and cities are Labour constituencies that’s not coincidence. I know about Jeremy Corbyn ‘response’ to the Islington child abuse because it was widely reported in the press at the time. No one has hard evidence against Margaret Hodge the Islington scandal happened when the Russian flag was flying over Islington and Hodge was to say the least busy supporting Gay rights.

        Actually I’m the last one who would believe tittle tattle and I have and will continue to be one of the first to change my mind if I see fresh evidence and/or attacks based on allegations have gone too far. I’m not afraid of changing my mind. I supported Labour for years but really first Tony Blair, then Gordon Brown and now for heavens sake Jeremy Corbyn and the betrayal of working class school children. Unforgivable.

        On the contrary – you seem entirely willing to believe tittle-tattle: “not coincidence” that child abuse was allegedly happening in “Labour constituencies”; “the Russian flag was flying over Islington”. You provide no evidence to support your fantasies.
