Tory manipulation tactic exposed as child sex ring convicted

Police: considering the content of the story, this seemed the safest image to use.

I suggested this would happen.

After Rishi Sunak announced that his government would crack down on child grooming gangs, I commented:

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.

And so it has come to pass.

A child sex ring has indeed been broken – in the West Midlands, with 21 people convicted.

A series of trials have taken place and 13 of the defendants jailed, with four more to be sentenced later. The case could only be reported today, after the last trial had ended.

This means that Rishi Sunak would have known about it before he announced his crackdown on child sex offences on Monday.

In fairness, I haven’t seen any comment from the government about this, so I can’t say Sunak has taken credit for it. That would be wholly wrong, considering the timing of his announcement and the fact that these trials were already happening.

But then, he doesn’t have to.

The juxtaposition is enough: he announced a crackdown on Monday and convictions were reported today.

No doubt gullible people across the UK are already telling each other how amazing the government has been in tracking down the perverts.

In fact, all Sunak did was spot a bandwagon coming towards him and jump on it. I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for the first genuine result to come from his announcement.
