A storm erupted after Rother Valley Constituency Labour Party selected Dominic Beck as its candidate to contest the next general election. Beck has been a Labour councillor in Rotherham since 2011. In 2014 a report revealed that over 1,400 young girls in the town had been victims of sexual exploitation.
Beck and his Labour Party cronies on the council rejected the report and clung on to power. When The Times newspaper published the story on its front page, Labour councillors on the cabinet called the Times expose “lies” and that it was just an attempt to smear them by the “the Murdoch press.” Beck is highlighted in red in the image below.
In 2015, an independent report was published that revealed the council’s incompetence (or cover-up), over the Pakistani rape gang scandal. Beck has never spoken about the scandal. He has never apologised. No contrition, just silence.
When South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright was forced to resign after the scandal broke, Beck attempted to move the agenda away from discussing the subject in council meetings.
“There are sensitivities of ethnicity with potential to endanger the harmony of community relationships. Great care will be taken in drafting …this report to ensure that its findings embrace Rotherham’s qualities of diversity. It is imperative that suggestions of a wider cultural phenomenon are avoided.”
Dame Louise Casey’s report into the council found the institution in denial, failing to admit the scale of the crisis, with 70% of the councillors – including some cabinet members – refusing to accept Jay’s findings. At parish council meetings, Beck even phoned the police on angry locals who turned up to question senior councillors.
Sarah Champion, the Labour MP for Rotherham, was delighted by Beck’s appointment. Champion, who the controlled media continue to describe as the person who ‘exposed the grooming gangs in Rotherham’, seems to have conveniently forgotten that Beck resigned in disgrace after being implicated in the town’s Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) scandal.
In reality the grooming gangs, who operated across the whole of Britain, were first exposed by racial Nationalists including the late Marlene Guest from Rotherham. Predictably, the State reacted by using criminal prosecutions in an attempt to silence them.
Beck was shamed into standing down as pressure mounted on Keir Starmer, the uncharismatic Labour Party leader, to intervene. Beck was quoted as saying: “It has been the honour of my life to be selected by Labour Party members in the Rother Valley to stand for parliament in the next general election. However, I have decided to stand down as the candidate. I understand that recent press coverage and concern about the events of the past make it more difficult for me to lead that campaign.”
One victim of the Rotherham grooming gang was quoted in the media as saying “No one who has had knowledge or stayed silent should be serving in any public office, let alone selected to run for Parliament.” We would go further and say that anybody in public office who knew about the abuse and refused to speak out for whatever reason, should be hauled before the courts, and if convicted, given heavy jail sentences. We will not go easy on paedophiles or their enablers in the Labour Party and the media.
If the Labour Party was serious about tackling the grooming gang plague that has ruined the lives of thousands of young white children, surely they wouldn’t have selected somebody who was previously implicated in the scandal and had to resign in 2015?
