    Fears over race relations played a part in police thinking when tackling grooming gangs, report suggests.

    Fears over race relations appear to have played a part in senior police thinking when tackling grooming gangs, the report into child sex exploitation in Manchester suggests.

    The 'assurance report' reviewing how Greater Manchester Police (GMP) dealt with the street grooming of vulnerable teenage girls, perpetrated disproportionately by Asian men, states officers were aware of "many sensitive community issues" around policing in south Manchester in 2002 and 2003.

    The report, by Malcolm Newsam, a renowned child care expert, and Gary Ridgeway, a former detective superintendent with Cambridgeshire Police, concludes vulnerable girls in care were groomed and abused in "plain sight", with police and Manchester City Council failing to act after shelving a major investigation to tackle the problem, Operation Augusta, in 2005.
    "Asian men"? Do they mean Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Korean, Indian men? I don't think so. Why can't they say what they mean?

    The strange world of coincidences. It was only the other day that I mentioned I had bought a book on Michelangelo. I've almost finished reading it and then along comes this in today's Guardian. If time permitted, I would like to go along and see this man's work.

    Multiculturalism cannot be set back 20 years, it is exactly where it was 50 years ago. It is demonstrably a failure.

    Do you want me to spell it out? It isn't an Asian men problem it's a religion of peace men problem.

    When different cultures meet and in general share the same cultural values, over time they slowly integrate. Where different cultures do not share the same cultural values then in general instead of integrating they become multicultural.

    As said elsewhere, there is a problem with Islam in Western societies.

    Western secular society is based on the principle that the primary source of law is secular and religious law is subordinate to secular law.

    Islamic society is based on the principle that the primary source of law is religious and that secular law is subordinate to that religious law.

    So for Islam the religion is the way of life.

    Bollocks. The 'crews' (actually some low priced local contractor that's mates with Councillor Bloggs) should be cutting back the surface to square the edges of the pothole, not chucking a bag of Instamac in the fucking thing, tamping it down with the back of a shovel and fucking off down the pub. Looking at those pictures there's a lot of cutting back to do, that surface is royally bollocksed and any remedial work attempted will fret out in no time.

    No Bong.

    The hopes of diehard Brexiters to hear the chimes of Big Ben sound at the moment the UK leaves the EU appear to have finally been dashed by Downing Street, as it indicated this will not happen even if the public raises the £500,000 needed to pay for it.

    According to Boris Johnson’s spokesman, Commons authorities – who warned on Tuesday of the high cost of completing the complex restoration of the clocktower – have said there could be difficulties in accepting public donations.

    On Tuesday, the prime minister said the government was “working up a plan so people can bung a bob for a Big Ben bong”. However, it transpired that there was no such plan, and the House of Commons Commission, which organises the running of parliament, said the bell was “unlikely” to sound at 11pm on 31 January, the moment Brexit officially happens, in part due to the estimated cost of £500,000 to make it happen.”

    There are so many conditionals above that it is essentially meaningless. Typical Guardian tat.
