David Cameron ‘misses the point’ over Rotherham abuse

Missed the point? Are you sure he isn’t obstructing justice?

Oh and while we’re at it Dave, got any updates on the  inquiry you supposedly ordered into the Westminster paedophile ring. Nope?

Well OK then, as long as your friends are protected.

Prime minister David Cameron has been accused of ‘missing the point’ by not announcing a standalone inquiry into the Rotherham child abuse scandal.

Home secretary Theresa May will be chairing a group of ministers to make sure that lessons are learned from Rotherham before the beginning of the historical abuse inquiry. The move has concerned the charity 4Children, which has warned that without a separate inquiry the issue will be lost, especially when compared to the scope of such a large inquiry spanning decades.

A 4Children spokesperson said she was concerned Cameron indicated, in his announcement during Prime Minister Questions, that any Rotherham inquiry would be incorporated into the historical child abuse inquiry.

This will give “the false impression that this issue is in the past and does not reflect the horrific reality that children continue to be subjected to abuse today,” the charity claimed.

In a letter to the prime minister, the children’s charity called for a high level, standalone inquiry into the extent of child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Rotherham and other areas.
