LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister David Cameron said tackling child sexual abuse was a national priority on a par with organised crime on Tuesday, announcing measures to prevent systematic abuse.

Britain has been rocked by a series of child sex abuse revelations, including a case in Rotherham, northern England, where some 1,400 children, some as young as 11, were abused by gangs of men.

“I’ve just spent half an hour with some of the survivors of abuse in Rotherham and these are stories that are going to stay with me forever. They are absolutely horrific,” Cameron said at a meeting of victim groups, police and child protection experts held in his official London residence.

“Young girls … being abused over and over again on an industrial scale, being raped, being passed from one bunch of perpetrators to another bunch of perpetrators.”

Classifying child sexual abuse as a national threat will create a duty for police forces to collaborate across regions to safeguard children, Cameron’s office said. Cameron also announced other measures to improve coordination between public bodies and a helpline to encourage whistleblowers.

In addition, Cameron proposed criminal sanctions for senior public workers who fail to protect children from abuse.

Referring to the Rotherham case he said: “This has happened with too many organisations and too many people walking on by and we have got to really resolve that this stops here, it doesn’t happen again and we recognise abuse for what it is.”

The government has begun an inquiry into decades of child abuse and suggestions powerful public figures covered it up.

An independent report released on Tuesday criticised authorities in the central English county of Oxfordshire for failing to stop 59 offences of sexual exploitation carried out by seven men between 2005 and 2010.

It said over 370 girls had been at risk of sexual exploitation in the area, and included details of how they were plied with drink and drugs and were assaulted, threatened, drugged, raped and sold for sex.

Under a separate investigation, British police on Monday charged 10 men with sexual offences, including several involving children, in Rochdale, another northern English town.

    suggestion: give them fruit … they can choose to eat it or not

    *had an interesting incident a few years ago … while handing out granola bars to those with signs (homeless) in a small city near me, I came across an elderly man asking for money (sign). I handed him a granola bar, but he opened his mouth and showed me he had no teeth, indicating that he could not eat the bar. I promised that I would bring him a clementine or orange the next time I was in town, and he smiled letting me know that this would be okay. the following saturday I found him pretty much where I had left him … and he got a clementine 🙂

    why not make it a global initiative—no one smacks another—not even men hitting a spouse because his Religion says he’s allowed 😦
    *just imagine how things would change in America alone!

    i can’t help but smile in the reading of this
    the jewish dilemma —hmm …

    jew and gentile in holy scripture to one like us is not judaism and everyone else as gentile. of course, the religionists of judaism are caught up in their ‘holy’ land war … the man struggle over property … that dust … you know of what we speak

    while we hear GOD calling the people to MOVE … man hangs his hat on the same old same old … how dreary …

    JEW in Holy Scripture—God’s Word—refers to one of LIGHT—coming into SPIRITUAL IDENTITY … which has EVERYTHING to do with UNITY

    it sounds as if the religionists of judaism and are not really interested in gnosis—that move toward the UNITY spoken of in Holy Scripture

    GENESIS 10.15 …

    And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,

      we ask: what if that land should become sea—all land swallowed up—would it still be holy? what if all were washed away as the earth shifts and moves with the weight of man and his indulgences … what then? would judaism … and all other religious strife be washed away, along with the ‘places’ of religion?

      is this what the religionists want? would this settle the wars?

      • opheliart permalink

        maybe this should be … maybe this would cause movement …

        it’s been done before—right?

        read the comments on the article—–
        added: what is unfortunate is that the innocent and those not of Judaism (or not Jewish of the Religious) suffer when there are attacks. wrong place at the wrong time? using Religious grounds, buildings … paying for use of these for arts and … innocent children … who have no understanding of what’s going on …

    it might be important for dolan and fran to explain what the catholic church was doing from its inception on down through history … wouldn’t the irish issue just be a continuation of what was born and bred within the system?

    • opheliart permalink

      we thinks dolan and his buddy are trying to start a WAR … that’s what evil does when it knows its own extremist visage

      • opheliart permalink

        you see, a religion like the rcc makes out when war is on the table

        looks like they are grabbing at any opportunity to get people riled up …
        but does ireland really want this? no! they have rory mcilroy!

        added March 8, 2015:

        added: ask yourselves why Dolan would be making this “announcement”
        the Vatican has things up its sleeve that most people do not see
        look at the patterns, folks …
        those in the business of “mind control” are quite good at MANIPULATION …
        Dolan is not doing this through any sense of love for humanity—he, like his predecessors, and those like him, watched the fireworks over obama’s statements …

        but they are off on this one, and they will continue to be off … because they missed the message

    this author just keeps plugging away at them and … whatever branch of ism he represents …

    do ya think it might be time to MOVE AWAY from this type of rhetoric and deal with some of the more hefty issues at hand?
    geez … how can people wallow in this stuff all the live long day 😀

    we keep waiting …

    anyone out there interested in discussion about UNITY?

  7. opheliart permalink

    the democratic state ensemble is in seizure mode

    in time … down the road … what many thought was THE answer to solve all problems—their democratic “state” … or their “church-state” … will give rise to something more “sociably” amicable.

    Humanity cannot withstand the “anything goes” —everybody’s gimme—prose …

    there are so many of these stationed in the US … it is quite alarming

  9. opheliart permalink

    keep seeing this face—there is something in this

    deeply saddened by this “suicide” … and it does not feel like a suicide
    *seeing misconduct …

    there is something off in this … there should be a deeper investigation
