Here's something the controlled media will not be telling you with regards developments at the Rochdale child rape trial taking place at Liverpool Crown Court.
In a move that will shock many, allegedly Labour and Liberal Democrat councillors from Rochdale Council have provided character references for at least one of the accused men.
Councillor Aftab Hussain (Labour, Smallbridge and Firgrove ward) stated: "I have known Abdul Qayyum for 10 years. He is a hard-working person. He comes across very well and I have never seen or heard of any wrongdoing before this case."
Meanwhile, Coun Zulfiqar Ali (Liberal Democrat, Central Rochdale ward) wrote: "I have known Mr Qayyum since he arrived in Rochdale. He has been involved in community activities and always makes time to help others. Abdul is one of those men the community has really taken to - they are really proud to have him as part of the wider family. He is hard-working and dedicated."
So in the eyes of these trusted councillors, being a hard worker somewhat offsets the accusations of rape. Surely the welfare of our young and vulnerable children would be better served by people who understand what morality is, or am I wrong?
