Ah, The Riches We Have Thanks To ‘Diversity’…

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?

Well, no:
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.

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.”
A ‘code of silence’ from ‘communities’….

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.

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.
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?

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?

God bless our immigration policy.

Maybe, you know, the government should make it a bit harder for those Elders to get into the country...

I'm beginning to think they should make it easier for us to leave.

“We don’t bury our heads in the sand and say it’s not going on,”

That's right. They say it is going on and then bury their heads in the sand.

In countries like Somalia, estimates are that almost 100% of women have had this inflicted on them. In the same way the people of Dubai are offended by the alcohol-fuelled antics of the British on their beaches, you can't duck the fact: it simply is part of their culture.

Did Britain's Chinese community take us completely by surprise by preferring rice to potatoes? In a less benign way the same will hold true for the communities from countries that are substantially more violent, corrupt or theocratic than Britain.

Don't ask why some recently immigrated communities have a problem with absent fathers or violent gang crime until you have checked out the statistics for their original countries.

Were we really so stupid that we couldn't see this coming?

The frightening thing is that demographic experiemnts on this scale are permanent.

The NHS is once again being used as a long stop for dealing with health problems arising from illicit acts that just aren't dealt with by a hamstrung criminal justice system. The NHS has gone from being the 'envy of the world' to a national disgrace in just over half a century.

BTW Julia have you seen the comment from 'Helen, Tower Hamlets' on the Thunderer's comments thread- priceless !

!

"Were we really so stupid that we couldn't see this coming? "

Oh, not stupid. Arrogant.

I think the people pushing this really thought that they would leave their cultures behind and embrace secular, progressive life...

"..have you seen the comment from 'Helen, Tower Hamlets' on the Thunderer's comments thread- priceless !.."

The mind boggles....

Let's say we accept that proving this is difficult.

At least let's take the children into care. Others have been taken from parents using the controversial dilation test.

It seems to me that if 99.9% of Somali children were taken into care then some more parents might get the idea.
