If you want to think it is all about the race of the guys and the race of the girls, then fine.
It's not what the report says, but fine.
The more common element between Rotherham, Rochdale, Cyril Smith, Elm House, Et al, is the abuse of vulnerable kids mostly in care (or 'known' to social services) and how these kids get ignored when they do actually come forward.
The report, by Prof Alexis Jay , who knows what she is talking about, covers all of that and more, as well as covering the very real issue of people for whatever reason feeling that they cannot speak out for fear of being accused of racism. It is a very real fear and people who do speak out do get accused of racism.
Are you saying that that fear does not exist?
Are you saying the people who speak out have not been accused of racism?
The report shows that people did speak out. It was at the 'policy' level where race seems to come into it.
The report said people feared that race would come into it, but no one could highlight instances of race stopping an investigation.
11.9 Frontline staff did not report personal experience of attempts to influence their practice or decision making because of ethnic issues.

So it's a self fulfilling prophecy. Everyone fears it without it actually happening.
It's easier to blame PCGM than ask hard questions about how various agencies view victims, how various agencies work with each other, how councils interact with officers, how councillors interact with wards, how resources are spread and used, how staff are trained..... etc, etc, etc.....
"Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so."
Race played a part, no doubt, but it's not that clear cut as to say it was the only reason for the reports being dismissed/hidden.
I'll give you the 'no pubs' one, but 'no toilets'...?! If one of those bears you discuss can ###### in the woods, surely you can as well? Just hopefully not next to it...
I meant no lovely seats... the relaxing 10 minutes reading a book....
The plan was simple... Came back from Nepal at 120Kgs, lose another 10kgs, plenty of day hikes and a few multiday walks to get happy with my kit. I've put on 16kgs, done 2 day walks and no multiday's....
