The NHS is to advertise free operations to reverse female circumcisions, with experts warning that each year more than 500 British girls have their genitals mutilated.Fantastic! We’re spending taxpayer dosh on fixing the problem, so are we also spending it on jailing the scum responsible for these crimes?
Police have been unable to bring a single prosecution even though they suspect that community elders are being flown from the Horn of Africa to carry out the procedures.So if a British girl is discovered by her doctor, teacher or health worker to have had this done to her, is action taken against the family?
It certainly doesn’t look like it:
Sarah McCulloch, of the Agency for Culture Change Management UK, said that every year more than 500 British girls were having circumcisions. “A lot of them are done in the UK, but some still travel overseas,” she said.A ‘code of silence’ from ‘communities’….
She said that a code of silence in Britain’s African communities had allowed circumcisions to continue and prevented arrests. The unqualified female elders, known as “house doctors” because they act in secret in a family home, are flown into the country.
“What the communities do is they gather together and collect money to pay for the ticket for a ‘doctor’ to come from Somalia, Sudan, or whatever,” she told The Times. “And when she arrives here, she goes to a house and has the girls brought to her.”
And one that the authorities are apparently happy to go along with:
While Scotland Yard is understood to have made investigations into female circumcision in the UK, and offered a £20,000 reward for information, no one has been successfully prosecuted for carrying out the procedure.So we have evidence that it’s happened to British girls, with the connivance of their families and ‘communities’ and no-one’s been arrested?
Detective Constable Jason Morgan, from Scotland Yard’s Project Azure, denied that police were complacent. “We don’t bury our heads in the sand and say it’s not going on,” he said.
It is illegal to take a person abroad for the operation but no one has been prosecuted for this either.
Instead, we’ll just pony up the money to get it fixed on the NHS, sigh to ourselves that ‘it’s their culture…’ and carry on turning a blind eye?
Ain’t ‘diversity’ grand?
