wnwanderer: Sorry you think it's a falsehood but the truth is that this was going on for decades and our rulers (of all persuasions) knew this.

From The Times, 24.10.12, in an interview with Keir Starmer, Director of Public Prosecutions.

"A generation of girls was betrayed by the justice system's flawed approach to sexual exploitation, England's Chief Prosecutor has admitted.

Keir Starmer, QC, the Director of Public Prosecutions, said that men who groomed teenagers for sex had escaped justice for decades because police, prosecutors and the courts failed to understand the nature of the abuse.

Mr Starmer has ordered a comprehensive restructuring of the Crown Prosecution Service's response to sex grooming, designed to raise the number of convictions.

The reforms come after an in-depth review of the CPS's initial reluctance to charge men involved in a notorious sex grooming network in Rochdale, Greater Manchester."

This despite the social workers, particularly Maggie Oliver and Sara Rowbotham, banging on doors and highlighting it everywhere.

Keir Starmer was the Head of the Service, the buck stopped with him, he was responsible. He KNEW what was happening, and did nothing.

Then we had "Three Girls" starring Maxine Peake as Maggie Oliver.

And yet, this is still going on. So I would suggest that Keir Starmer's "comprehensive restructuring" hasn't worked.

I haven't mentioned Jimmy Savile and don't see the connection here. I will not comment on him.
