LABOUR CANDIDATE: Rochdale Abuse Victims Were Always “Pissed And Out”
Gary Swain, Labour’s Candidate in Crewkerne on Frome Town Council in the local elections last year has claimed that the victims in the infamous Rochdale abuse scandal were “permanently pissed and never at home”. He went on to say that parents should “grow the hell up”.
Mr Swain went on to say that he was not “taking sides” over who was to blame except social services who he said seemed to have “done all they can”.
However, the court hearing which convicted nine men in the Rochdale case – eight of Pakistani origin and one from Afghanistan – heard how they gave their victims drink drugs before “passing them” round for sex. Girls as young as 13 were exploited by the gang who were treated in the words of Judge Gerald Clifton “as though they were worthless and beyond respect”.
In further comments made on Facebook, Mr Swain also said Help For Heroes, the charity which helps to provide better facilities for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty “shouldn’t exist”.
Mr Swain’s comments come the day after the bombshell report of systematic abuse in Telford being allegedly covered up by authorities over fears of allegations of racism.
