Sajid Javid: People offended by 'Asian' paedophile comment 'oversensitive' Sajid Javid: People offended by 'Asian' paedophile comment 'oversensitive' The home secretary says he was simply stating a "sad truth" that will "fuel" the far-right unless it is confronted. Sajid Javid has defended branding a grooming gang "sick Asian paedophiles", saying those who criticised him for it were being "oversensitive". His Labour shadow, Diane Abbott, was among those to criticise the post, saying that "attempts by… the government to attribute these crimes to one ethnic group does nothing to support these vulnerable women". Speaking from Seattle, Washington, Mr Javid explained why he had commissioned research since the trial to "see if there are any cultural issues". "I don't regret it at all," he told Sky News. He added that "part of the problem" was that police and social workers "didn't take this issue seriously enough because they didn't want to be accused of racism and that's wrong". Well said, seriously, well fucking said. Not only addressing the issue (he didn't mention the religious element, but I'll let that slide) because for the home secretary to call it what it is, explain that not addressing the issue properly fuels the far right, which it most certainly does at a detriment to our country and that he has commissioned a report to be made into this is imo only right. But for Dianne Abbott to bring ethnicity into it, when "asisns" aren't a fucking ethnicity for one the clown. The thing is she might have actually had a point had she said it's not a majority Asian problem, it's a majority muslim pakistani/bangledeshi problem... but I'm so glad in this current culture of people constantly apologising he has doubled down and stuck to his guns.
