Deborah McQueen should not be allowed to keep her job, but at the same time, this is not really her fault. We know that it was fear of “racism” accusations that led to police shelving Muslim rape gang investigations in Rochdale and elsewhere in shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain. Deborah McQueen is not the originator of such fears; she is just a minor functionary, doing what she had to do in order to protect her job in accordance with the zeitgeist.
The people who ought to be removed from their positions, if they’re in the British government, and prosecuted for the large-scale coverup and failure to prosecute these Muslim rape gangs are those who are responsible for making people such as Deborah McQueen fear that they would be accused of “racism” and “Islamophobia” for acting properly against the Muslim rape gangs: Nick Lowles of Hope Not Hate, Fiyaz Mughal of TellMamaUK, and the like, as well as Prime Minister Theresa May and her cohorts.
They have created a culture in which people were so afraid of being called “Islamophobic,” a charge that could mean the loss of their jobs and possibly even prison, that they turned a blind eye while the lives of tens of thousands of British girls were ruined. That culture is still in place. Until the criminal gang that rules Britain and controls its public discourse is removed and decisively repudiated, Britain has no hope of surviving as a free society.
“Social worker accused of failing to protect Rochdale grooming gang victims is allowed to keep her job,” by Damon Wilkinson, Manchester Evening News, November 6, 2017:
A social worker accused of failing to protect victims of the Rochdale grooming gang has been allowed to keep her job after the case against her was ruled to be ‘not well founded.’
Deborah MacQueen was alleged to have failed to safeguard up to 11 vulnerable children who were groomed by the paedophile ring.
In a long-running disciplinary hearing, the former Rochdale council social worker faced allegations that from January 2005 to September 2010 she failed to protect the children who were in ‘grave danger.’
Nine men in Rochdale and Heywood were convicted and jailed for a total of 70 years in May 2012 for grooming children as young as 13 after they plied them with alcohol and drugs before ‘passing them round for sex’ at two takeaway restaurants.
Ringleader Shabir ‘Daddy’ Ahmed, now 64, was given a 19-year sentence which was later upped to 22 years for repeatedly raping a girl.
The horrific scandal was the subject of a three-part BBC drama called ‘Three Girls’, which aired in May.
A serious case review by the Rochdale Safeguarding Children Board described police and social services as demonstrating a ‘shocking’ inability to protect the vulnerable.
Subsequently an investigation was carried out by the local authority to determine if social workers had followed proper procedures to protect the girls.
MacQueen was employed as a manager within the council’s social work team and admitted that she had ‘signed off cases’ despite information they were at risk of harm.
Representing herself throughout the hearing, she said that she only did so because she was unaware of the ‘full facts’ of cases and that she should have been more robust in making sure those below here were doing their due diligence.
Sheila Sutherland, who led the investigation on behalf of Rochdale council, described her decisions as ‘indefensible’ in relation to one child with a learning disability.
She said the victim’s older brother was associated with a man convicted of paedophilia and she could not see a reason as to why the case should have been closed.
Ms Sutherland said: “I can find no basis or justification for the decision to close this case – I consider her practice wholly inadequate and very dangerous.”
At an earlier hearing Ms MacQueen denied failing to properly safeguard seven children, and that her errors in relation to four children amount to misconduct.
She also denied her fitness to practice was impaired by reason of misconduct.
Industry regulator the Health Care and Professions Council found her guilty of one charge of not ensuring that an assessment was undertaken or recorded in relation to the risk posed by ‘child 11’s’ uncle and son, who they were living with at the time…
“The panel has therefore concluded that this isolated incident, in its judgement, does not amount to misconduct….
