Rape gangs in Britain on the rise say campaigners

The British House of Lords hosted the launch of the #1400 campaign, founded by Shazia Hobbs and Rotherham Grooming Survivor Elizabeth Harper.

    MEP Janice Atkinson chaired the event. She cited Blair’s late-90s “PC-mad hate crime laws” now preventing debate about predominantly Pakistani perpetrators.

    “There are people in Parliament who try to stop us from talking about this” using hate crime laws, explained Atkinson. The EU Parliament “turns of the microphone” when Atkinson tries to raise the issue of grooming gangs.

    Hosted by UKIP peer, Lord Pearson, campaigners said they hoped to set up a telephone helpline in support of white British girls trapped by Muslim rape gangs. The mainstream media ignored the event.

    “Paedophiles don’t retire,” Shazia Hobbs, one of the organisers, noted, and added that grooming gangs are still present. She said that it is “worse now than ever before”.

    The BBC failed to attend and Channel 4 showed no interest when they were told of the event.

    Hobbs said she “wanted to make sure this country feels the full impact of what it has covered up and what it is still covering up”.

    “I want to shame the successive governments from both right and left who covered up the industrialised rape of our children. I want to shame every single person whose job it was to protect our children. And who failed.” added Shazia.

    “Where is Esther Rantzen with her helpline for the victims of Muslim rape gangs?” said Hobbs, “Where are all the politicians? The people in power who can and should be protecting these children? Where are they?”

    Harper, a victim of the Rotherham rape gang, revealed: “I was one the #1400 children.”

    “We have lost a generation, Our childhood was stolen, Why did this happen?” Harper said. She also said that the government was ignoring the scourge. “We have not received funding from the Government.”

    Harper added that the campaign was “not about party politics, it’s about child abuse”.

    It has become difficult to discuss the issue, however, since Jeremy Corbyn’s opposition Labour Party is particularly reluctant because the party counts on 85 percent of the Muslim vote.

    UKIPs’ Lord Pearson told the participants: “If you touch this case, you immediately become an Islamophobe.

    “Islam lies at the heart of this problem, and most of this is a problem within Islam, we need to start talking about this openly,” he said.

    Lord Pearson also revealed that he would be writing to the British Government to highlight the issues raised at the campaign launch.
