More Grooming in Northern Mill Towns

This Sunday Times piece is by Julie Bindel, via the Community Cohesion blog. In the standard form of victims poker, the perpetrators ethnicity and religion would trump their gender. Not so for Ms Bindel, for whom their gender trumps everything else, so paradoxically giving us perhaps a more honest piece than we'd get from most journalists.

It's a pretty impressive cultural collapse. From memsahib to white bitch in three generations.

I must say it can't be fun being the native parent of a teenage girl in Bradford, Preston, Burnley, Blackburn. Given the difficulty of checking out who the good and the bad guys are, even the most committed anti-racist parent would be tempted to play safe, and make sure she went to a secondary school dominated by her own community.

Uh-oh. That option's been taken away for parents in Burnley and Blackburn. Looks like the State is the biggest pimp of all. Bring back single sex schools.

(I would imagine that for Ms Bindel, some forms of grooming are worse than others).

Interesting comment to that 'Times' article:

"There are many of us Asians, Hindus, Sikhs and Jains, who wish to have nothing to do with these thugs, and you should indicate that these gangs are almost entirely of Pakistani origin. But the authorities and the press are terrified of pointing this out for fear of violence from the Muslim community."
