Gary Swain, Labour’s Candidate in Crewkerne on Frome Town Council, Somerset, in last year’s local elections has claimed in Facebook posts circulating online that the victims in the infamous Rochdale child sexual abuse scandal were “permanently pissed and never at home”. He went on to say that parents should “grow the hell up”.
In further comments made on Facebook, Mr Swain also said Help For Heroes, the charity which helps to provide better facilities for British service personnel who have been wounded in the line of duty “shouldn’t exist”.
Mr Swain made his comments the day after it was revealed that Britain’s worst ever child grooming scandal had taken place in Telford, Shropshire. Authorities failed to act over 40 years – despite repeated warnings to social workers – with up to 1,000 girls, some as young as 11, abused, and some were even killed.
It is very worrying that someone running for public office could have such an attitude to this serious situation.
