The police line-up looked like a page torn out of an Asian Who’s Who.
Sarah Champion said so, and she did not mince her words. “British Pakistani men ARE raping and exploiting white girls – and it’s time we face up to it.”
However, the aptly-named Champion is not just a woman in the street. Before she wrote the fateful words, she used to be the British Labour Party’s Shadow Minister for Equalities. She resigned from her frontbench position when she was hauled over the coals for using, and I quote, “blanket, radicalised, loaded statements” and “Nazi like language”, unquote.
This is another example of political correctness gone, not only awry, but totally crazy. Apparently, she was being racist, and was not supposed to have defined the perpetrators by race.
I would probably be one of the last women that feminists embrace as one of their own. However, I cannot help noting that whatever happens, it’s cherchez la femme in the worst possible meaning of the phrase… because women always get the wrong end of the stick.
A lot – too much – has been said about the foreign woman who, alas ‘offended public morals’ because she was as high as a kite, and consequently did not know, or probably care, what she was doing. But two men who go skinny-dipping are laughed off as “lads”, and two youths who endanger their lives and cost the state megabucks in rescue fees and manpower and time are just “boys being boys”.
Can anyone tell me whether the person who filmed the woman is being fined for disseminating porn? Or does the video-clip fall under the general heading of “news in the silly season”?
A man of the cloth – I use the euphemism on purpose – makes a mockery of what he stands for… and some have the audacity to say that, like all victims of sexual deviants, she “asked for it”.
A pathetic excuse for a husband beats his wife, who did not obey her lord and master, not because she was out with the girls, or watching television, but because she had chores to do. She is hospitalised. It did not even occur to him that his brutality would deprive him of many more of her meals.
A dirty old man under the illusion that he is some handsome virile porn star, attempts to go kinky on his wife… without her consent.
A girl dies – and the hacks rush to pick out the photos featuring her in the most provocative poses from Facebook and other social sites.
A punter thrashes the flat of a woman who has still not fully transgendered. Some self-styled experts said that there should have been full disclosure before they got down to the nitty-gritty. Only a few of us understood that his wrath stemmed partly from the fact that he knew he was going to be mocked by his peers (especially of they are of the same mind-set as he) for what happened to him…
In all the above stories, the victims are denied dignity… perhaps because they are women… perhaps because the perpetrators are men… perhaps a combination of both… Throw in some barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen fundamentalism, and there you have it.
There will always be, of course, women who ask why “she didn’t leave him”, and, when it comes to abortion and prostitution, that it is “her body, her choice”. Alas, things are not that simple.
Now we are being told that prostitution, stripper clubs (let’s not call a spade a digging implement), white (or any other colour) slavery, and money laundering, are totally unconnected topics. International documentation backed by research and statistics, is scorned and dismissed as a mere theory… by the people who stand to earn megabucks if things go their way.
Alas, I thought that those of us who voted in the last election, chose representatives who would “do something” about injustices. It seems they are too busy going about their official darg to find time for anything else.
Who will bell the cat?
