Sunak orders crackdown on child grooming gangs – and HE’s not racist about it

Suella Braverman and Rishi Sunak: SHE failed to restrain herself from accusing people of foreign descent of responsibility for child sex crimes in the UK. HE hasn’t made that mistake – but can he live up to his pledge? 

We knew this was coming because Home Secretary Suella Braverman has already spoken about it. Sadly, she couldn’t hold back from injecting racism into her words.

The Sky News report below has it right: while Braverman attacked British Pakistani men as being responsible for child grooming gangs, the vast majority of child sexual exploitation gangs in the UK are composed of white men – and it’s unlikely that the statistic would be changed if police who shied away from their job for fear of being accused of racism had shown a little more backbone.

I do share the scepticism of the child sexual abuse survivor. We heard those statistics in Prime Minister’s Questions last week (March 29): 300 rapes take place every day but women brave enough to report them have just a 1.6 per cent chance of ever seeing their attacker face justice in court.

The average wait for a rape case to reach court is now three years, and 175 have been abandoned because the victim was so brutalised by the experience that she felt unable to go on.

If I had been Sunak, I would not have announced any crackdown until after I had ordered it – and after I knew I would be able to announce a success.

I wonder if we will soon be told a child sex ring has been broken – or if this struggling leader of an inept government is going to fumble even this.
