Heartbreak of MP’s lone battle to tackle sex abuse in Bradford

As my book proves, UK government was funding cover-up operations in Bradford by 1995, nearly 10 years before she spoke out. She really made very little noise about the industrial scale rape of schoolgirls by Muslim gangs across England. Her political party spent years trying to make it a serious criminal offence even to unintentionally offend a Muslim.


A senior Labour politician has spoken of her heartbreak that action was not taken more than a decade ago to protect vulnerable children in a Yorkshire district from sexual exploitation.

Ann Cryer, the chairwoman of the Labour Party’s National Policy Forum, was widely vilified in 2003 when she first tried to bring a staggering circle of crime to light.

Ridiculed, branded a racist, a liar and a fantasist, the then-Keighley MP was forced to install a panic button in her own home as she became a target herself.

Now, as new figures uncovered by The Yorkshire Post show an unprecedented level of abuse emerging in the Bradford district, her fears have been justified.

But, she says, she feels no measure of satisfaction.

“Girls are coming forward,” she said. “That’s good news. I just wish it wasn’t happening.”

Mrs Cryer’s fight for justice all those years ago has been well documented.

Approached in the summer of 2003 by a group of seven Keighley mothers, she was to hear a horrifying story of abuse – and of a desperate plea for help as these mums were getting nowhere in asking for action. Their young daughters, they said, were being abused at the hands of their Asian ‘boyfriends’. And, drawing up a list, there were 65 names.

Mrs Cryer was horrified at what she heard that day. But she had no idea, as she took on the protest presented by those fearful mothers, what challenges it would bring.

Of the fruitless battles against social services and police who “failed” to see it as a crime, or of the drag from politicians who simply did not understand what was happening.

“I almost bust a gut, trying to get action from Bradford Council and police,” said the 76-year-old, who is also a JP. “It was terribly difficult. I just felt at one point that nothing was ever going to happen. I could only assume, rightly or wrongly, that there was too much hesitation about it. It was seen as being racist.

“They just kept saying ‘there’s no way we can ask CPS to conduct a prosecution – it’s just not going to happen’. These girls regarded these boys as their boyfriends. Regardless of that, it’s a criminal offence. At 12 and 13 they were definitely minors.”

Today, the issue of child sexual exploitation (CSE) is top of the agenda for police and social services in Bradford. Great strides have been made in tackling the problem, and both organisations have been publicly commended for their recent efforts to effect change with the establishment of a CSE hub.

But, said Mrs Cryer, there is still a refusal to accept what is happening within some parts of the Asian Pakistani community.

Of those suspects in Bradford whose ethnicity is known, 55 per cent are Asian, a significant number given that the Asian community makes up around a quarter of the district’s population.

“What’s going on in Bradford is terrible. But at the end of the day, the perpetrators are the ones behind all of this. Let’s look at what’s going on at grassroots level and why,” said Mrs Cryer.

“There is a culture of misogyny present. Not across the Asian community, certainly. But I would say there is misogyny there. I’ve spent 13 years fighting it.

“Let’s look at the people that are causing this and ask questions of the community from whence it’s coming.”

Bradford West MP Naz Shah believes key conversations are now being had within the Asian community, and people are not shying away from it. And what is happening here, she says, is indicative of what is occurring across the country.

A Muslim community group, set up in West Yorkshire to target street grooming, says there is still a lack of knowledge within the Muslim community. What is needed, said Together Against Grooming spokesman Ansar Ali, is engaging with these communities to increase understanding.

“There is a lack of awareness still,” said Mr Ali. “It’s going to take a while.

“This is a priority. But getting the community on board rather than apportioning blame is really important.”

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.
