Exclusive: Public services ‘STILL not dealing properly with child grooming’

With the rash of news reports coming out just before Christmas in relationship to Bradford, something big must be coming there in the New Year. They want to be able to say that they warned people about it.


Healthcare systems are even now lagging behind in their ability to respond adequately to child sexual exploitation, a senior Bradford politician has claimed.

A catalogue of mistakes and missed opportunities has been acknowledged at both Bradford Council and West Yorkshire Police in their protection of a young girl in the district in 2011 and 2012.

The teenager, known only as Autumn, was just 13 and 14 when she was repeatedly sexually abused by a gang of Asian men.

In a Serious Case Review into her care, it emerged she was sent home by her GP with contraceptives and literature after telling them she had been raped at the age of just 13. This “inadequate” response failed to meet child protection responsibilities to safeguard Autumn, the report published last week found.

Now Coun Simon Cooke, leader of the opposition Conservative party at Bradford Council, has said he fears there is still a long way to go with some agencies.

“The report highlights some really significant problems in the way in which we were dealing with this as an issue,” he said.

“Nobody could say anything other than ‘the council got it wrong’. No excuse could be made for that. We failed in our duty.But there are issues in that report that I don’t think are being addressed right now.

“The health system, the primary care and GPs in particular, are still a long way behind in terms of being able to respond adequately.

“I’m not trying to pass the buck – the council has a lot of work to do as well. But I do think there are some other really significant failings.”

The Yorkshire Post revealed on Saturday that an unprecedented level of abuse is being uncovered in the Bradford district with at least 80 per cent more crimes linked to CSE than elsewhere in South and West Yorkshire.

The serious case review published last week disclosed a series of missed opportunities from police, social services and agencies to protect Autumn. It criticised social work services for having “little grasp” of what was happening to the vulnerable schoolgirl.

And, the report also revealed, there were failures from her GP to protect Autumn when she first came forward to ask for help.

Paul Twomey, medical director from NHS England, said learnings from this report were to be shared with health professionals.

“Our condolences are with Autumn and we hope that this report brings some closure to these events for her,” he said. “We would also like to thank the independent chair for this report and we fully accept its recommendations. We can confirm that the GP involved in Autumn’s care retired some years ago and was reported by NHS England to the General Medical Council (GMC) when these issues came to light.”

There is a robust support network for healthcare organisations and GPs in Bradford, the district’s three Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have said.

There is a dedicated safeguarding team, offering leadership, support and advice to healthcare organisations and working with GPs, hospitals and surgeries to support safeguarding work and ensure effective arrangements are in place to protect children.

“NHS England takes its safeguarding responsibilities extremely seriously,” a spokesman said. The guidance from the General Medical Council (GMC) is clear that it is a doctor’s responsibility to ensure they have the appropriate skills and knowledge to carry out their role.

“GPs receive regular support from their local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS England to do that.”

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

The book has now been re-printed and customers all over the world can now buy Mohammed's Koran (the No.1 best-seller banned by Amazon).


If you wonder if the book Mohammed's Koran is for you, read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.

Amazon banned the sale of the only book on Islam that proves Islam has been a terrorist ideology since Year 1 of the Islamic calendar.  The book denounces violence and hatred, yet has been described as offensive by Amazon.  Meanwhile Amazon still sell copies of "Mein Kampf" (which advocates gassing Jews) and Amazon still sell books like "The Anarchist Cookbook" which (a bomb-making manual, the possession of which has led to terrorism charges in the UK).  Ebay has even banned the sale of used copies of Mohammed's Koran.  And from day one Google banned adverts for the book (instead the UK government spent a small fortune buying the top advertising slot to push their video begging people not to read the book).  Amazon staff are on record as saying that the order to ban the book came "from above Amazon". The propaganda from the state and the censorship from their tax-avoiding chums confirms the argument of Mohammed's Koran - the elite have knowingly invited this terrorist ideology into the West and they have sided with the terrorist ideology against the victims of terrorism.

With all this censorship you may not have heard of my new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson). It was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there until the initial print-run of 5000 books sold out a few days later. For most of the following 18 months it was the No.1 best-selling Koran.  Muslims hated this fact.

The British media never reported on the book going straight to No.1.  They only reported on the book once sales of it had been banned.

Considering that Twitter and Facebook have banned me, YouTube has removed entire channels, and Google deliberately promotes Islam in discussions of Islam and terrorism, it's only right to do my social networking on a site that really seems to stand by the concept of freedom of speech.
