What is the worst crime in the world?

You may have gathered by now that I am not crazy about virtue signalling celebrities, who tell everyone else how to behave but then go back to their mansions and leave us all to live with the consequences of their lecturing. Emma Thompson, JK Rowling, Lily Allen all campaign on things that they think are important. Emma Thompson even bought land to stop an extra runway being built at Heathrow Airport. I suppose that was to stop more carbon-emitting planes to come into London, but when you travel by private jet, it is OK, isn’t it?

That is why I hate these people. They are all hypocrites.

And then there was the #metoo movement, which I wrote about yesterday, calling them a bunch of virtue signalling airheads (or something like that) who do nothing about the plight of ordinary people in difficult situations, but congratulate themselves on how brave they are confessing to an incident that happened years ago, now that they are rich and famous?

Well, look at this picturesque British town and tell me what you see.

This is Telford, in the Midlands. And this is the scene of the latest scandal, where young girls have been raped, beaten, groomed for sex and even killed by gangs of Asian men while the authorities did nothing for fear of being seen as racist.

Let that sink in.

As many as 1,000 children could have suffered at the merciless hands of perverts and torturers in Telford since the 1980s.

Girls as young as 11 have been lured from their families to be drugged, beaten and raped in an epidemic that, say victims, is still ongoing.

THREE people were murdered and two others died in tragedies linked to the scandal.

Despite similar high-profile cases in Rochdale and Rotherham, authorities in Telford ­repeatedly failed to stamp out a network of abusers.

The Mirror’s 18-month investigation reveals abuse on unprecedented levels. We found:

  • Social workers knew of abuse in the 1990s but police took a decade to launch a probe
  • Council staff viewed abused and trafficked children as “prostitutes” instead of victims, according to previously unseen files
  • Authorities failed to keep details of abusers from Asian communities for fear of “racism”
  • Police failed to investigate one recent case five times until an MP intervened
  • One victim said cops tried to stop her finding out why her abusers had not been prosecuted because they feared she would talk to us.

The scale of the abuse uncovered in Telford – population 170,000 – is feared to be the most brutal and long-running of all. The Rotherham toll was put at 1,500 – but that was in a community of 260,000.

Telford’s Tory MP Lucy Allan has demanded a public inquiry and said our ­findings were “extremely serious and shocking”.

Shocking all right. How come nobody had done anything about it?

One 14-year-old, groomed and abused after her phone number was sold to paedophiles, said: “I hated what was happening and my abusers made my skin crawl but I was told that if I said a word to anyone they’d come for my little sisters and tell my mum I was a prostitute.

“Night after night, I was forced to have sex with multiple men in disgusting takeaways and filthy houses.

“I must have been getting the morning after pill from a local clinic at least twice a week but no one asked any questions.

“I fell pregnant twice and had two abortions. Hours after my second termination, I was taken by one of my abusers to be raped by more men.

“The worst moment came just after my 16th birthday when I was drugged and gang raped by five men.

“Days later, the ringleader turned up at my house and told me he’d burn it down if I breathed a word of what had happened.”

Words just completely fail me when I read stuff like this. As if Rotherham and Rochdale weren’t bad enough. Now we have another case where authorities blame the children rather than the Asian men, for fear of being accused of racism.

Where are you now, Lily Allen? Where are you, Emma Thompson? After all, you were quick to say that sexual harrassment is ‘endemic’ in Hollywood. What do you think of this? What about you, J K Rowling? You were quick to condemn racism in your books. How do you feel, now that it has come to this?

Will someone please explain to me why being racist is now the worst crime in the world? Worse than being guilty of sex crimes or murder? Why girls can be dragged into sex rings without mercy and no one ever gets held to account? But being called a racist is something that we simply cannot tolerate?

These are someone’s daughters. Their lives are ruined. And the situation has been allowed to continue for years. They were children. Having sex with children is a crime. Drugging people against their will is a crime. Rape is a crime. Forcing young girls into prostitution is a crime. What sort of a world do we live in where things like this just keep happening, on and on and on and those who are supposed to protect the vulnerable look the other way?

Why is being seen to be racist now the worst crime in the world?
