UK: Thousands of child sex abuse victims, says minister

By David Barrett, Home Affairs Correspondent

More than 2,400 children and young people were confirmed to have been victims of sex abuse gangs in just 14 months, a Home Office minister has revealed.

Lord Taylor of Holbeach said the figure – which he described as “dramatic” – hinted at the true scale of organised sex abuse in Britain.

The minister said police forces must “lend a positive ear” to complaints from children in the future, in a bid to avoid a repeat of sexual abuse which has been exposed in a series of recent criminal trials.

“This has been perhaps the point of failure in the system that these allegations have not been listened to or taken seriously by the authorities in the past,” he told peers.

Police found 2,409 children and young people had been confirmed as victims of sexual exploitation in gangs or groups between August 2010 and October 2011, said Lord Taylor.

Lord Morris of Aberavon, the Labour former attorney general, told the House of Lords that more than 50 alleged child grooming gangs were being investigated.

And the demographic gap is quite devastating. The number of immigrants arriving is only half the story. It’s their birth rate that really counts.

He asked: “Is it collective amnesia that has blinded us to the underlying circumstances, whereby at least 27 police forces are investigating 54 alleged child grooming gangs?

“Why has investigating and prosecuting in so many different parts of the country taken so much time?

“Is it the fear of racialism, or is it the fact that many of these vulnerable girls come from care homes?”

An Old Bailey jury heard earlier this month that six girls were drugged and suffered sadistic abuse while aged between 11 and 15.

The court heard victims were plied with alcohol and drugs before being forced to perform sex acts. Some had also been beaten, burnt and threatened by an Oxford-based paedophile ring.

Lord Taylor said agencies were now on the alert and “trying to recover a situation which should never have got to this point”.

  1. Tens of thousands of young girls, children really, have been used as sex slavers by Pakistani Muslims in the UK. Many knew of thsi, Channel 4 even had a documentary on it over ten years ago, but the documentary was hushed up.

    All this happened when Blair and Brown were in power – at a time when they allowed in millions of Muslims, to change the demographics of the nation. This was deliberate treason, with malice towards the people of the UK. It is inconceivable that the police ignored the cries for help from little children, were it not for active orders from above. Its either that or that Labour are the biggest bunch of incompetent idiots in the history of the planet.

  2. Latest estimates of the number of little girls used as sex slaves is now in the thousands in just 18 months. Over a decade that means in the tens of thousands.

    I don’t find it all surprising that government, opposition, police , social services, judiciary, and even the general public want to hush this all up. It is too shameful for all of us to acknowledge that this happened in our society.

    We didn’t protect our little children, not just hundreds but tens of thousands, ignored their cries for help. Is it surprising that all of us want this to go away as soon as possible. PAH!

  3. Before the dictatorship of Liebour here in the UK,the ideal of the family was a strong basis for life BUT thanks to the traitors Bliar etc there destroyed it to create the ”feral” and ”welfare” societies just to gain votes and remain in power so continue there fantasy of a multicultural utopia.

  4. Agree with DP111,all this is the fault of Labour and those who continuously voted them in.Labour assisted this invasion of unchecked immigrants just for the price of ”cross on a ballot paper” and the indigenous working white classes were to suffer just so there could ”stick it the right”.

  5. Well, charge Mr. Blair with treason – I believe the old punishments for treason are still on the the books.

  6. All this “speaking out” by Lord Taylor of Holbeach is too little, too late. I was absolutely astounded that the care homes in Rochdale are suing Rochdale council – what absolute cheek. What is needed is for somebody to fund class action suits against all the authorities on behalf of these poor children who have been (in some cases) irreparably damaged by the negligence (amounting to enablement) of those who should have protected them – the police, the Social Services and the care homes. A public fund trust fund should be set up for this.

    The only thing these heartless and cowardly authorities can do to make things half-way right is hold a public enquiry to force them to tell the truth about what they knew, and what they ignored. From there, everybody who was (and is complicit) in these crimes should be charged as accessories – be they Police, social services, even government ministers. I urge all Brits posting on here to write to their MPs, the Childrens Minister and demand this.

    We in the UK do not even know how many more Muslim paedophile gangs are operating in our areas, and for how long they have been allowed to perpetrate such heinous crimes. Our government is treating us like dirt. As a mother, I feel that all parents should demand the justice these poor girls are owed, so our own children and grandchildren can be safe.
