  • Yeah bloody disgusting, and we know who the lot doing are. Absolute filth.

  • Too little too late, by their own admission it’s been happening for decades and is most likely still happening. Hardly any of the perpetrators are behind bars and all the victims and the community get is an apology.


  • Still ongoing….not forgetting the “security” they provided for the “anti” protest…

  • Take recommendations? He never has before, why so keen now? Typical BS from a lying sack of you know what. His next meeting should be at the DSS looking for a new job. Not that the useless oaf is good at anything, other than professional con man

  • What about all the evidence and information that Tommy Robinson has of stuff that’s happened as the officer that’s meant to be in charge of all this won’t even talk to him.on the phone let alone have a meeting with him
