UK: Authorities Failed to Probe Asian Paedophile Gang in Telford

Asian grooming gang

An Asian Grooming Gang systematically ‘abused, raped and tortured’ English girls in Telford for almost 4 decades

Asian Grooming Gangs operated for almost 4 decades in the English town of Telford, abusing, raping and torturing underage English girls. It has recently been revealed that, despite numerous reports and complaints, the authorities failed to act and instead preferred to see victims as ‘prostitutes’.

According to multiple media reports, as many as 1,000 girls have been affected. Additionally, 3 girls and some of their family members were murdered by their abusers, the most high profile of these cases being that of Lucy Lowe, 16, who was killed alongside her mother and sister when her abuser, Azhar Ali Mehmood, burnt down their house with them inside.

West Mercia Police launched Operation Chalice to investigate the scandal, which resulted in the imprisonment of just 7 (all Asian) men in 2012. This, despite the fact that as many as 200 perpetrators may have been identified by victims and other sources.

A Daily Mirror investigation has found that the abuse began as far back as the early 1980s, and police were first notified by a concerned local resident in 1996. According to previously hidden files, social services were aware of the issue in the late 1990s but ‘did little to help’.

In 2000, young Lucy Lowe was murdered by her Asian abuser who had made her pregnant aged 14. In 2002, abuse victim Becky Watson (13) was killed in a road accident which was, at the time, written off as a ‘prank. In 2009, Becky’s friend Vicky Round died of a ‘drugs related incident’ after suffering ‘9 years of hell’ at the hands of her Asian paedophile rapists.

The special report suggests that over 100 girls were still being abused between 2007-09. Despite all the above, the authorities waited until 2010 to finally launch a police probe.

As recently as 2016 the Daily Mirror, a Labour Party paper which has little to gain from exposing diversity’s shortcomings, reported that the abuse is still continuing outside underage discos in Telford, where vulnerable girls are undoubtedly being lined up like lambs for the slaughter by their Asian rapists.

This is just the latest in a long string of revelations. Rotherham, Rochdale, Oxford, Newcastle, Luton and Birmingham, to name but a few, were all recent cases of horrific Child Sexual Exploitation, that all involved men of a predominantly South-Asian background. Like Telford, all these cases were examples of the authorities systematically failing our children.

We’ve arrived at a point where asking if or when the authorities will act is simply futile. The question now remains, what are the English people going to do about it?

The horrific details of these cases speak for themselves. They need no exaggeration or exaltation. Therefore, I will conclude by inviting you to read my favourite poem by the great English poet and author Rudyard Kipling:

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy-willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low,
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show,
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd,
It was not taught by the State.
No man spoke it aloud,
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddenly bred,
It will not swiftly abate,
Through the chill years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

The Beginnings, by Rudyard Kipling.
