UK Decay By Richard Miller
Thanks to the site Trad News.blogspot.com for the references, which show that the UK is even more decayed that I had thought. It is a wide-ranging depressing read, and here I will only give a snip from the child rape grooming article, since this phenomenon brings it all together. If a nation cannot defend its children from predators, and in fact allows it all to occur, then it is finished. All over red rover.
“Earlier this week, Lord Pearson continued his questioning of the government over the recent report on police and local authorities’ failures to tackle grooming gangs. The answer revealed that the government has not even estimated the number of victims over the years.
Lord Pearson asked the government a written question about the numbers of victims of grooming gangs: “To ask Her Majesty’s Government what estimate they have made of the number of women and girls raped by Muslim men involved in grooming gangs since 1997.” Baroness Williams replied for the government this week: “The Government has estimated that there were approximately 6,850 victims of organised child sexual exploitation in the UK in 2015. This estimate includes all forms of child sexual exploitation and does not distinguish between rape and other sexual offences. It includes organised child sexual exploitation committed by groups and gangs within a range of contexts. “In early 2020 the Government will publish a national strategy, the first of its kind, to tackle all forms of child sexual abuse. “Our new strategy will set out our whole system response to tackling child sexual abuse and how we will work across government, law enforcement, safeguarding partners and industry to root out offending, protect victims and help victims and survivors rebuild their lives. There will be no no-go areas.”
No official estimate
What this reply makes clear is that the government has no idea how many victims of grooming gangs there have been over the years. The government has made an estimate of the number of victims of child sexual exploitation in general for just one year. In 2015 it estimates approximately 7,000 victims. The government has therefore made no attempt to estimate or calculate how many girls have been victims of grooming gangs over the 40 years that these gangs have been operating.
But the numbers are huge
The government answer makes no reference to the more than 18,700 suspected victims of child sexual exploitation that were identified by local authorities in 2018-19. In Rotherham alone the number of victims is over 1,500. It is clear from these simple stats that the number of victims of grooming gangs over the last 40 years stretches well into the tens of thousands, and possibly hundreds of thousands. With no official estimates from the government it appears that the government is not taking this appalling issue seriously. The government continues to refuse to publish a review it commissioned into the characteristics of grooming gangs. We await the publication of a national strategy for all kinds of child sexual abuse. I hope it makes specific reference to grooming gangs and what they are doing to tackle them. I wrote last week in more detail about how political correctness is perpetuating the problem and causing more girls to be horrifically abused. We need the government to be open and honest about this and to agree to take it seriously.”
That, in my opinion is wishful thinking, since the government probably sees the grooming gangs as part of a diverse and vibrant culture; it is just their way. Thus, police did not act until quite late, due to political correctness concerns, which are well documented in the mainstream press:
And how many children were raped and assaulted? One high estimate, going back to 2015, and note that the grooming rapes still continues, is one million children:
“There could be up to a million victims of child sexual exploitation in the UK, it is feared. Rotherham’s Labour MP Sarah Champion describes it as a “national disaster” and is demanding a taskforce to fight the “horror.” In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mirror the shaken MP has told how she ‘nearly lost her mind’ after victims turned to her for help - unable to trust the police or local council. She is currently getting an average of 10 victims a week coming to her for help. Fighting back tears she told how she feared having a nervous breakdown worried about failing the “amazing women” and her horror after finding out a manual for grooming existed for paedophiles. The MP was speaking after the Government announced they were taking over Rotherham Council for a “fresh start” and sending five commissioners to run the troubled authority.”
It is hard not to see the UK, and much of the West, is in anything other than terminal decline, looked at from a civilizational cycle view, such as that expressed by Sir John Bagot Glubb, in The Fate of Empires (1978).
“Wealth entices foreigners, and the defensive posture and newfound generosity of the rulers allows the influx. “Historical examples of this phenomenon are scarcely needed. The idle and captious Roman mob, with its endless appetite for free distributions of food—bread and games—is notorious, and utterly different from that stern Roman spirit which we associate with the wars of the early republic.” Even “Second- or third-generation foreign immigrants may appear outwardly to be entirely assimilated”, but as Glubb later says, when the breakdown invariably comes. He emphasizes, “that I do not wish to convey the impression that immigrants are inferior to older stocks. They are just different, and they thus tend to introduce cracks and divisions.” And “when decline sets in, it is extraordinary how the memory of ancient wars, perhaps centuries before, is suddenly revived, and local or provincial movements appear demanding secession or independence.” Mexicans still sting over the loss of California and Texas. “A universal pessimism gradually pervades the people, and itself hastens the decline.” Frivolity, says Grubb, becomes the main occupation. “Gladiatorial shows, chariot races and athletic events were [the Roman’s] passion. In the Byzantine Empire the rivalries of the Greens and the Blues in the hippodrome attained the importance of a major crisis.”
In what is sure to set off the loudest noise is Grubb’s observation that an “increase in the influence of women in public life has often been associated with national decline…In the tenth century, a similar tendency was observable in the Arab Empire, the women demanding admission to the professions hitherto monopolised by men.” Soon after the women were granted entry, “government and public order collapsed, and foreign invaders overran the country.” Grubb doesn’t say if Arabic women stood at their borders with signs reading “Refugees Welcome.” In short, “A community of selfish and idle people declines, internal quarrels develop in the division of its dwindling wealth, and pessimism follows, which some of them endeavour to drown in sensuality or frivolity. In their own surroundings, they are unable to redirect their thoughts and their energies into new channels.”
Glubb identifies no cure. None appears to exist. Once it settles into the bones, the rot is ineradicable. Discussing the doom hastens the doom. Yet remaining silent seems absurd. The parallels between the other failures and ourselves are obvious: those who can see know them only too well. For these folks, giving in to sensuality or frivolity will not be countenanced. It is from this small pool we will find our saints. The only real questions are: how much longer, and who will be our replacement?”
As Hamlet said (Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 1):
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? 'Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; aye, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.
