It was revealed on 26 August that over 1400 children have been systematically groomed, threatened, raped, and otherwise abused under the noses of Rotherham Council authorities. 

Following the revelations, only one person has resigned - the leader of the council, where in reality far more people are accountable for this massive failure for Rotherham, Britain, and mostly for the children involved.

Specifically, Police and Crime Commissioner Shaun Wright has said that despite the injustices and crimes occurring under his purview over the past 16 years, when he served as a local councillor (2000-12), and was the Cabinet Member for Children’s and Young People’s Services (2005-12) he will not resign. During his time as Councillor he was also the Deputy Chairman of South Yorkshire Police Authority.

Many people have been calling for Wright to go, but he still refuses to leave his £85,000 a year, taxpayer-funded job, despite having failed repeatedly.

Shaun Wright, under these circumstances, the only responsible and just thing to do is to resign.
