Sunderland Is Not Safe! Time For The Politicians To Act!
I love Sunderland. I’ve lived here my entire life, and, despite the fact it is being persistently trashed by the corrupt Labour Party, it has always been a friendly local community. The kind of place where everyone knows each other, and there is little to no crime. Up until now.
Over the past 18 months or so, Sunderland has been plunged into utter chaos, on all fronts. It’s been plunged into administrative chaos, political chaos and even now chaos in terms of safety for residents and tourists. For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you will know I post about these issues on a regular basis. And what I’m actually getting for doing so, along with others, is threats of lawsuits from the local Media, and having criminal charges pushed to the CPS by Northumbria Police, which is now firmly under the control of the Labour Party’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird. Serious allegations have emerged that she has already ousted two Chief Constables of the force, yet has ignored questions put in writing to her in relation to the allegations.
The fundamental point is, that Sunderland is simply not safe anymore.
Many of you will know the story of Chelsey Wright (also see here) back in 2016, a young mother from Sunderland who was drugged in a Nightclub, then taken to an address in Hendon and gang-raped by several Syrian and Iraqi asylum seekers. They were initially arrested by Police but quickly released without charge, and even moved to a safe house. The case was then dropped entirely due to “insufficient evidence” despite Chelsey undergoing a full rape examination which found two counts of Semen inside her body. She was completely ignored by the local media and all political parties refused to report on anything, with the single exception being UKIP. Cllr Richard Elvin released a statement on this back in 2017 in which he said:
“I will also be looking into the refusal by the Sunderland Echo and the media in general to report anything associated with Chelsey even though she has waived her right to anonymity. Their bias in favour of promoting certain Political Parties and groups is obvious.“
The fight for Chelsey eventually ended when she was informed by the CPS that should civil proceedings be launched then Government powers would be invoked to ensure its cancellation. But what has since emerged is that this is only the first of a long string of such cases and the crest of a large crime wave which is now engulfing Sunderland. From Machete attacks which are not reported in the local media to armed robbery to fake evidence being submitted to the police by Councillor Miles Elliott, son of local MP Julie Elliott, to even public order offences and intimidation by City Councillors directed at residents in even the most public of places, the simple fact is that this is a much larger problem with justice which is not being served for residents in the community.
This year alone, there have been a large number of sexual assaults on the women of Sunderland. In late February, barber Aram Abdulrahman was jailed for three years after sex attacks on just schoolgirls. Later that month there was another rape in Mowbray Park. Then there was a young girl who was gang-raped by a group of asylum seekers not even two weeks ago. Four of them were arrested but only one was charged. Less than one week ago, another two men were arrested after two separate rapes happened in Mowbray Park overnight. Then just a few days ago, reports swirled around social media of another woman being dragged along Roker Avenue by a migrant. She could hardly stand up, had no idea where she was and witnesses claim she said she lived in nearby South Shields. The police were called, the migrant was arrested and the woman is now receiving treatment in Hospital. Yet late that night, another rape occurred on the same street. Witnesses who were interviewed by the police are even claiming it’s the same person again from a month ago who was let off because he “didn’t know English laws“:
So, what are our elected Councillors and Politicians doing? Absolutely nothing. They’re too busy hitching a ride on Sunderland Council’s notorious Gravy Train. Having been at the 2017 Election Count, I was there nearby our MP Julie Elliott when she was personally asked to intervene in the Justice for Chelsey case and help out. She had recently been re-elected and was walking past down from the podium, with a smile on her face, when she was asked. She had an immediate look of utter contempt and disgust on her face, turned her head the other way and totally ignored the request to help.
Vera Baird, Northumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner, was elected on a ticket of supporting women and of helping victims of domestic abuse which makes it simply astonishing that she doesn’t want to help out in these cases considering how vocal she is about domestic abuse and how close she is with the Labour-run charity Wearside Women In Need. It’s just a shame that there are allegations of large-scale fraud surrounding it, along with an astonishing claim that back in 2012 Vera passed £40,000 to Wearside Women in Need through Sunderland Council for services which got her elected as the Northumbria PCC. Yet all we have from Vera yet again is more rhetoric and no action.
I’m equally astonished that all three Wearside Labour MPs- who are all women- remain silent on this issue. Bridget Phillipson, MP for Sunderland South, used to work for Wearside Women In Need as her mother owns it. You simply could not make this up. What we actually have here are politicians pandering to a minority within the community because they are migrants and the racism card will be played should anything happen. So because of their pandering to a certain section of society which has fundamentally evil views, it has been allowed to fester and grow to the point where it is out of control and can’t be stopped. How many more women of Sunderland need to have their lives destroyed by sexual assault and abuse before our spineless elected officials will take action and do something?
Vera Baird is nothing short of a complete disgrace and I call right here for her immediate resignation as Police and Crime Commissioner of Northumbria Police. It won’t fix the situation because fundamentally Police and Crime Commissioners MUST be scrapped, but having someone in a lead Policing role who described PCCs at Labour Party Conference in 2016 as a ‘permanent part of Labour in Government, using Labour values to transform crime prevention and community safety‘, and is vehemently pushing a Labour Party agenda top-down on officers, is a total disaster. She must go. We need an urgent Home Office investigation into her handling of Northumbria Police.
It isn’t a lot to ask of your elected politicians and police force to keep you safe and protected from evil in your local community. That is, after all, the only job of the police. However, I fear that if things are not acted upon here very quickly then it will be too late. If they can’t even do that, what hope is there for future generations of this country?
