Its remit covered the period 1997 (when New Labour took office) to 2013.
An edition of this document is presented here:
No one knows the true scale of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham over the years. Our conservative estimate is that approximately 1400 children were sexually exploited over the full Inquiry period, from 1997 to 2013.
In just over a third of cases, children affected by sexual exploitation were previously known to services because of child protection and neglect.
It is hard to describe the appalling nature of the abuse that child victims suffered. They were raped by multiple perpetrators, trafficked to other towns and cities in the north of England, abducted, beaten, and intimidated.
There were examples of children who had been doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight, threatened with guns, made to witness brutally violent rapes and threatened they would be next if they told anyone. Girls as young as 11 were raped by large numbers of male perpetrators.
This abuse is not confined to the past but continues to this day... In 2013, the Police received 157 reports concerning child sexual exploitation in the Borough.
Over the first twelve years covered by this Inquiry, the collective failures of political and officer leadership were blatant. From the beginning, there was growing evidence that child sexual exploitation was a serious problem in Rotherham. This came from those working in residential care and from youth workers who knew the young people well.
Within social care, the scale and seriousness of the problem was underplayed by senior managers. At an operational level, the Police gave no priority to CSE, regarding many child victims with contempt and failing to act on their abuse as a crime.
Further stark evidence came in 2002, 2003 and 2006 with three reports known to the Police and the Council, which could not have been clearer in their description of the situation in Rotherham. The first of these reports was effectively suppressed because some senior officers disbelieved the data it contained. This had led to suggestions of cover-up.
The other two reports set out the links between child sexual exploitation and drugs, guns and criminality in the Borough. These reports were ignored and no action was taken to deal with the issues that were identified in them.
In the early 2000s, a small group of professionals from key agencies met and monitored large numbers of children known to be involved in CSE or at risk but their managers gave little help or support to their efforts.
Some at a senior level in the Police and children's social care continued to think the extent of the problem, as described by youth workers, was exaggerated, and seemed intent on reducing the official numbers of children categorised as CSE...
In Rotherham, the majority of known perpetrators were of Pakistani heritage...
Latterly, some child victims of CSE and some perpetrators had originated from the Roma Slovak community...
Dr Heal, in her 2003 report, stated that 'In Rotherham the local Asian community are reported to rarely speak about them [the perpetrators].' The subject was taboo...
In her 2006 report she described how the appeal of organised sexual exploitation for Asian gangs had changed. In the past, it had been for their personal gratification, whereas now it offered 'career and financial opportunities to young Asian men who got involved.
She also noted that Iraqi Kurds and Kosovan men were participating in organised activities against young women...
By far the majority of perpetrators were described as 'Asian' by victims, yet throughout the entire period, councillors did not engage directly with the Pakistani-heritage community to discuss how best they could jointly address the issue.
Some councillors seemed to think it was a one-off problem, which they hoped would go away. Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so."
'Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought racist.'
"'I didn’t want to appear racist’ is truly the ‘I was only obeying orders’ of our time. Racism has become so hysterical a subject that it has crowded out all other moral concerns, including in this case the concern to look after children...
Political correctness was supposed to make us nicer, but in reality it just makes people stupider. As anyone who has done any sort of online test will tell you, much of human intelligence comes down to pattern recognition; the whole purpose of political correctness is to stop us noticing patterns even when they stare us in the face."
So now, in the mind of a British civil servant, obeisance to political correctness is more important than the health and welfare of our children. Even when that civil servant is tasked with the care of those children.
Looks like the PC Crowd has won, doesn't it? Looks like those who wanted to destroy a world that worked, in order to replace it with an Orwellian dystopia where cowardice, meekness and subservience to the migrants-must-not-be-criticised-no-matter-what-they-do mantra, was the order of the day, have succeeded.
Where once we were proud, honourable and courageous, now we would rather allow foreigners to gang rape and prostitute our kids rather than condemn them for doing so.
What punishment do such creatures deserve, do you think? What punishment is merited by those police officers who not only turned a blind eye but regarded 'many child victims with contempt... and seemed intent on reducing the official numbers of children categorised as CSE.'
Oh yes, if I was the boss I'd string up the politicians who made it happen. The same fate would befall the top cops whose progress up the greasy pole matter more to them than the happiness and sanity of the innocents they were sworn to defend.
The social workers would spend ten years at hard labour.
All of the above should be condemned, humiliated and shamed. Their crimes should be catalogued and forever paraded before those to whom they did so much damage and the wider public. Our children (and theirs) should be taught to despise them utterly.
As for the 'Pakistani-heritage' paedophiles, they too would be executed. As for the manner of their deaths, I'll spare you the details.
But I can tell you that it would involve a blow torch.
The Daily Mail quoted her thus:
"When it became clear to us that the couple had political affiliations to UKIP we had to seriously think about the longer term needs of the children. We have to think about their clear statement on ending multiculturalism, for example. The children were from EU migrant backgrounds and UKIP has very clear statements on ending multiculturalism which might be sensitive to these children."Er, Joyce, you know the 1,400 little girls, almost all of them English natives, who were gang raped, tortured and prostituted by Pakistani-heritage paedophiles? Do you have any evidence of the sensitivity you showed to them when they were subject to said treatment?
The Mail added:
"She said there was no ‘quality of care’ issue with the couple, the husband is a former Navy reservist who works with disabled people and the wife is a qualified nursery nurse, only that they were UKIP members."'Quality of care?'
Joyce Thacker is a former member of the sinister organisation, Common Purpose, which trains 'leaders' to 'lead,' as opposed to 'serve' the people.
Common Purpose has been described as a hidden virus in our government and schools.'
