Liberal attitude to underage sex at heart of Oxford abuse scandal

Mar 4, 2015 by

By Laura Perrins, The Conservative Woman: The feeding frenzy over the Oxford abuse scandal will be mighty, righteous and great. Many will blame social services and the police for being completely useless, which they are. Others will blame the perpetrators ‘of mostly Pakistani heritage’ and of course they are primarily to blame. Inevitably, ‘society’ will be blamed for treating the victims of this abuse as trash because of their background and I have no doubt that many professionals did believe...

We’re priming young girls for abuse

Mar 4, 2015 by

By Sarah Vine, Mailonline: The serious case review into the sexual exploitation of girls between the ages of 12 and 16 by a group of men in Oxfordshire from 2004 until 2012 is one of the most depressing documents I have ever read. Better brains than mine will surely determine how to stop such an abomination happening again; but there is one factor the report highlights that seems to me to offer invaluable insight into this and other cases of child sexual exploitation. Despite nearly all the...

Mother knows best about childcare. Still we waste £5 billion a year on a failed experiment

Mar 2, 2015 by

By Kathy Gyngell, Conservative Woman: Whenever I read a new report on the state of the nation’s childcare industry, I get a sense of déjà vu. The latest, from the House of Lords Committee on Affordable Childcare, motivated by the best of intentions, is a case in point. It is also a case of back to the future. The ‘real problem’ with childcare, say their Lordships, is the lack of educated staff. We have been here before. In 2011 Professor Cathy Nutbrown of Sheffield University was asked by...

Three pillars of the British Left that failed to stop child abuse

Feb 27, 2015 by

by Simon Kent, Breitbart: The three formidable bastions of the caring, sharing political left can be easily defined. Think the NHS, local government and the BBC. All provide nice little earners for those who persuade themselves that their political beliefs somehow equip them for guardianship of massive amounts of public money on the basis that ‘they care.’ Yet these institutions are failing us, each and every one stands accused of charges of gross negligence of duty when it comes to protecting...
