Jane Collins MEP has called for the resignation of both the home secretary, Theresa May and the second head of the Child Services Authority inquiry in to child abuse, Lady Fiona Woolf; as details came to light of Lady Woolf playing down links with former Conservative home secretary, Leon Britton.
Jane, who has been outspoken in seeking justice for the victims of the recent Rotherham CSA scandal, slammed Lady Woolf saying, “To re-write a letter seven times smacks of having something to hide and many victims groups and charities are now expressing a total lack of confidence in this enquiry.”
“To continue with the inquiry in its current form would be a total waste of public money!”
“How can the victims or the public have confidence in an enquiry that has been bungled and potentially politically manipulated from the start? What we need now is a new framework for this enquiry, overseen by an head that is totally politically unconnected; potentially someone from abroad.”
“Theresa May has done nothing but bury her head in the sand on this issue, and has twice appointed people totally unsuitable to lead this enquiry. She should admit her failings, fall on her sword and resign as all she is now is causing further hurt to the victims.”
