Conversations you appear to have no interest in starting. Do you see them as lesser?

So far all you've given us is, the BBC didn't report a story straight away. Which now looks sensible as it appears to have been rather sensationalist.

From memory, you have only started threads about abuse if you believe it involves Muslim men, as if these terrible crimes are somehow more terrible because of the religion of the perpetrator.

Can you see why i think you have an agenda @GWB?

You haven't read what I have written have you?

I have said and on this thread culture and attitude are as much to blame for the Asian grooming gangs as is faith, how many Muslims were abused by them though as a sidenote?

Muslim expanded to include all of Asia, but still no mention of any white men, even though there have been stories breaking recently.

Here's something to get your head around. About 10 years old now, but more relevant than ever. Even delves into mental illness.

If you can blather on about a single subject, so can i.

Didn't we have a thread on Catholic abuses?

Asian is the BBC way of not saying Muslim, I am merely copying them.

Its been said they can do this as the gangs know they won't be challenged due to people being scared of being called a racist and the police seeing the vulnerable as meat like the Asian gangs, I am guessing here but names aren't given out do to the public reaction and political and cultural sensitivities, look into it and see if I'm wrong?

 More news about Telford on my BBC news feed this morning.

They do name names when the men have been charged. They even publish pictures of them.

Yes, exactly, the BBC reporting on this very incident, thereby refuting your original hypothesis.  

Glad you agree with the rest of us that the bbc is reporting the situation in Telford. 

So, lock thread?

Why can't we continue and discuss why the bbc was so so late in coming to the party?

Here's a crazy idea. Don't lock the thread, just don't read it or respond to posts on it. It'll have slipped out of sight in a few days.

There'll probably be a new one to replace it though

 Political pressure and community pressure I would say and a pc driven agenda.
