Shaun Wright resigned. Time for all Rotherham Councillors and other officials to face removal and criminal charges
Having said that, let's point out that abuses of the kind have been taking place for more than 16 years and that more than 1,400 children have been sexually abused under the watch of elected Councillors - mainly Labour Councillors - that should now reconsider their positions.
Let's not use Shaun Wright as a scapegoat and let's bring down the entire Council Authorities should are blatantly guilty of dereliction of duty, having looked the other way when institutions that were supposed to protect vulnerable children were being used to abuse children.
When it comes to abusing children, the Labour Party has an extremely bad record as one now famous publication - the Labour 25 - demonstrates, adding to that the scandals surrounding the British Broadcasting Corporation thanks to which sexual abusers were given a free license to attack vulnerable people - including physically and mentally disabled people - the Savile Affair being one of many that have to light in recent years.
Issues were raised but the authorities quickly brushed them under the carpet putting pressure on the victims of abuse and protecting the perpetrators.
The conduct of Police Officers who became part of a criminal system for the sake of political correctness must continue to be under public scrutiny and heads must roll.
