Hey, Whatever Happened To....

A commenter (Ashtrayhead) draws my attention, via email, to this story:
Eight Telford men today appeared in court charged in connection with alleged sexual offences and child prostitution relating to four girls, one aged 13.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 2007 and 2009.

All the men today denied a total of 50 charges between them when they appeared at Shrewsbury Crown Court.
And its significance?
Ahdel Ali, 22, of Regent Street, Wellington, is charged with raping a child aged 13, sexual activity with a child, trafficking for sexual exploitation – arranging or facilitating child prostitution – meeting a child following sexual grooming, facilitating child prostitution and controlling a child prostitute.

Mubarek Ali, 27, or Regent Street, is charged with trafficking for sexual exploitation – arranging or facilitating child prostitution – controlling a child prostitute and facilitating child prostitution.

Tanveer Ahmed, 38, of Urban Gardens, Wellington, is charged with sexual activity with a child, facilitating child prostitution, controlling a child prostitute, and causing child prostitution.

Marhoof Khan, 32, of Caradoc Flats, Wellington, is charged with sexual activity with a child.

Mohammed Ali Saltan, 23, of Victoria Avenue, Wellington, is charged with rape and sexual activity with a child. Mohammed Islam Choudhrey, 51, of Solway Drive, Sutton Hill, is charged with paying for sexual services with a child, causing child prostitution, and arranging or facilitating child prostitution.

Noshad Hussain, 20, of Regent Street, Wellington, is accused of having sexual activity with a child. Abdul Rouf, 33, of Kingsland, Arleston, is charged with conspiracy to cause child prostitution.
Why, it seems only yesterday that this would be big news. But now?

"We must respect their culture."

And now we see the consequences.

And no doubt, these children will be expected to be eternally grateful, that their exposure to Multi-Culturalism has "enriched" their lives immeasurably & will undoubtedy make them better citizens .. having experienced the wonders of "diversity" at first hand ..

I don't get it? What's the link between these guys other than they are all paedophiles? ;-)

On this theme, the Quiet Man is running the long-ish clip from Newsnight where Paxman interviews the leader of the EDL.

The comments on the blog are interesting because they come from someone who happened to be in town when there was an EDL/UAF fracas, and he's not sympathetic to either of them, having seen them at first hand.

On Newsnight, Paxman didn't seem just to be playing devil's advocate; he seemed hopelessly adrift from the reality in some British cities. I'm tempted to say 'typical BBC'.

A cynic would say that most of the media have been involved in phone hacking in some shape or form and they are being blackmailed into not reporting stories that upset the multiculturalism apple-cart.
In 30 yrs time we may know the truth.

"...and he's not sympathetic to either of them, having seen them at first hand."

It's so often a case of 'out of the frying pan..'

Or more succinctly, 'The enemy of my enemy...'

In a completely unrelated piece of news Anti-Semitism in the UK remains high in 2010.
