TELFORD: Labour Selects Police “Equality & Diversity Officer” Candidate After Abuse Scandal IGNORED To Avoid Racism
Labour have selected Katrina Gilman, a local police Equality & Diversity Officer who worked for the police department which ignored hundreds of abuse cases through the town.
Telford has been plagued with the UK’s ‘worst ever’ abuse scandal for a number of decades, with up to 1,000 young girls raped, abused and murdered in the community.
Despite this major scandal being reported countless times over many decades, the police ignored the claims of abuse and left the grooming gangs in operation.
While the police have obviously not given an official reason for ignoring the abuse, it is widely believed that it was simple because they did not want to be seen as ‘racist’ or upset ‘community cohesion’.
With all of these things going on, Labour made the unexpected decision for the police’s Equality & Diversity Officer to be their parliamentary candidate for the town.
Social media users in Telford expressed their outrage online, with one Facebook user writing: “Lol an equality and diversity officer who belongs to an antisemitic party like Labour?! What a joke.”
Another wrote: “Yes works for the police that has ignored the child rape gangs,oh yea really diverse another one that will denied everything and anything.
“Won’t be getting my vote, I hope a decent ukip or independent stands or no one to vote for.”
A local political activist posted: “Could they pick a worse candidate?
“Where we are debating whether the police do their job properly they choose someone who works for them.”
The general election is still four years away but the party have selected their candidate in advance to allow for preparation in the event of a snap election.
