It takes a nation to protect the nation
Keir Starmer was head of the CPS and Director of Public Prosecutions from July 2008 till Nov 2013. During this time it is thought that there wasn't a single successful prosecution for FGM.
As leader of the Labour Party, Keir Starmer promoted Naz Shah to the front bench. Naz Shah is the Pakistani Muslim that said that English girls should keep quiet about being raped by Muslim gangs, for the sake of social harmony.
As I recall it, neither did the CPS under his direction bring in a single succesfull prosecution for FGM.
Good point, Antony.
Alan - any links to a good info source/article on his failure with the grooming gangs ? I've also read that many people say he prevaricated over Jimmy Saville.
Sorry, I don't have, but will keep a lookout for one.
This is an important thread since he will be in the headlines for the next few years.
Wasn't Keir Starmer director of public prosecutions from 2008–2013? Not from 2004?
You are right. I've removed that misleading image, and typed in the main points instead.
