Sajid Javid shows his quality

Sajid Javid is once again proving himself to be a politician of rare character.

Whereas too many of Britain?s politicians, and the country?s Muslim community, are in open denial about the horrors of Britain?s Muslim rape gangs, Javid ? who is ?in an untouchable position regarding accusations of racism or bigotry? ? is showing that he is not afraid to tackle the problem head-on.

Javid has previously defended Labour MP for Rotherham, Sarah Champion, when she was censured by her own party for telling the truth ? that Britain ?has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls”.

Now, he is also saying the previously unsayable ? and demanding that something be done about it. Quote:

Sajid Javid has ordered an investigation into why members of sexual grooming gangs are disproportionately from a Pakistani background. End of quote.

I think we all know the answer to that one. But, I suspect, Javid is merely keeping up appearances and trying not to be seen to be pre-judging the outcome. Quote:

The Home Secretary said the controversial move would explore the ?particular characteristics? of offenders in order to prevent cases like those suffered in Rotherham, Telford and Newcastle.

Mr Javid said that the issue would be addressed head on as the government ?attaches the highest priority to tackling child sexual exploitation?.End of quote.

Which would be a welcome and necessary change, after previous civil authorities at all levels ? from laughably-named ?child protection services?, to police and politicians ? studiously ignored the horrors being done in full view; all in the name of protecting ?diversity?. Quote:

It comes after Labour MP for Rotherham, Sarah Champion, was criticised last year?The Home secretary made his commitment to explore the issue in a letter to Ms Champion after it emerged that she had increased her security after receiving death threats.

Mr Javid said: ?MPs should be able to do their job without being threatened or intimidated in any way. Sarah Champion has my full support.?

He went on: ?My officials have been working with investigating officers in relevant cases, and with the National Crime Agency, to establish the particular characteristics and contexts associated with this type of offending.? End of quote.

Javid is leading where other politicians are hiding their heads in the sand, attacking messengers, and blaming victims. The odious Jeremy Corbyn denied that there was even a problem, and his equally disgusting sidekick Naz Shah repeated the claim that the victims of Muslim rape gangs should shut up ?for the good of diversity?. Quote:

The minister, whose own family roots are in Pakistan, said understanding more about gang networks would ?support a more targeted response by the police and other agencies? and added: ?If there is a need for further research, we will take it forward.? End of quote.

This rather dry language belies the excellent example that Javid has repeatedly set. He recently tweeted, for example, that grooming gangs were ?sick Asian pedophiles?, sending shockwaves through polite political and media society.

I?ve previously written that Javid ?could in fact seize the moment and set an exemplary model for Britain?s politicians?. In other circumstances, he already has: Javid is famous for championing Britain?s Jewish community, especially at a time when open anti-Semitism is rife in politics. Javid is a long-time supporter of Conservative Friends of Israel and has nominated Israel as the only middle eastern country he would choose to live: ?Only there, he said, would his children feel the ?warm embrace of freedom and liberty??.

As Culture secretary, Javid threatened to cut government aid to cultural groups who joined in the anti-Semitic BDS movement.

Javid has also condemned the far-left Momentum wing of the Labour party as ?neo-fascist?, and rejected claims of ?Islamophobia? in Britain. He has refused to be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Council of Britain?. He also vowed that there would be ?no no-go areas?, and roundly rejected the claim that terrorism ?has nothing to do with Islam?.

Javid has been praised as the front-runner among ?the best new MPs for over thirty years?, and he is often touted as a future prime minister. He is also popular among the Conservative party rank-and-file. His economic credentials are impeccable.

Sajid Javid is no Sadiq Khan. Javid is personally non-religious, but his wife is a practising Christian: he says that ?the only religion practised in my house is Christianity?. If (or rather when) Britain has a prime minister from a Muslim cultural background, they could hardly do better than him.

Indeed, there would seem to be few better choices from any background for prime minister.
