BBC refuses to report on Telford child grooming scandal

It’s been revealed that up to 1,000 young girls have been groomed, drugged and raped in Telford by Asian men, yet the BBC has refused to report on the story.

A Sunday Mirror investigation uncovered that girls as young as 11 were targeted over a period of 40 years. It is believed to be the biggest child grooming cover-up in British history.

Those working for the Council reportedly viewed some of the abused children as prostitutes, and there was the usual politically correct nonsense when it came to abusers who were Asian.

Despite the nation-wide outrage and the story being reported on major news outlets, the BBC has seemingly refused to talk about the issue.

The BBCs front page does not appear to show the story:

Search for ‘Telford’ also fails to bring up any results.

The BBC should be ashamed of themselves. This is a major story, yet they will not report on it, instead, choosing to report about Labour MPs standing down.

UPDATE: The BBC has reported on the story in a small local news piece, 48 hours after the story broke.

Child grooming gang to be DEPORTED after British citizenship is revoked

Four members of a child grooming gang that was based in Rochdale are set to be deported to Pakistan after a judge rejected an appeal against revoking their British citizenship.

According to reports in the media, one member of the group had tried to take their case to the European Courts of Human Rights, but the judge in this case has now agreed that the British government was justified in taking the decision that their right to remain in the UK should be removed.

A report in the Daily Mail says:

Four members of a child sex grooming gang are facing deportation to Pakistan after immigration judges rejected their appeals against their British citizenship being revoked.

Ringleader Shabir Ahmed, Adil Khan, Abdul Rauf and Abdul Aziz, all from Rochdale, had their cases thrown out.

The men had appealed against moves by the Government to strip them of their British citizenship.

But their claims were dismissed on all grounds by the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber.

The ruling paves the way for the men, all of Pakistani nationality who acquired British citizenship by naturalisation, to be removed from the UK.

Ahmed was convicted in 2012 of being the ringleader of a group of Asian men who preyed on girls as young as 13 in Rochdale, plying them with drink and drugs before they were ‘passed around’ for sex.

He was given a 19-year sentence at Liverpool Crown Court in May 2012 for a string of child sex offences, including rape.

He was also jailed for 22 years, to run concurrently, in July 2012 for 30 rapes against another victim.

Taxi driver Rauf, 47, a father-of-five, was released on licence in 2015 after serving half of a six-year sentence for trafficking a girl, aged 15, in the UK for sex, and for having sex with the youngster himself.

Handing down the judgment, Mr Justice Bernard McCloskey, president of the Upper Tribunal, said the cases were ‘of some notoriety’, and described the men’s crimes as ‘shocking, brutal and repulsive’.

In this case, it is interesting that it has been referred to the European Court of Human Rights as one of the most popular pro-Brexit arguments is that there is an appetite for the ECHR to no longer have influence over the United Kingdom.

Many people feel that it is more appropriate for British courts to have the final say over issues of British law, and the fact that a judge within our own legal system was prepared to back our own government over any sort of ECHR involvement has to be a positive sign.

The only slight concern now is that the four men have the right to ask for permission to appeal this latest decision, meaning that their deportation to Pakistan could still be a number of years away.

Therefore, there is a chance that this particular case will be back in front of the courts after the United Kingdom has left the European Union, and it remains to be seen whether or not the European Court of Human Rights will still have any real power over the UK at that point.
