More Rotherham grooming charges - but this time it's LORD Rotherham
Three Pakistani-heritage men from Rotherham - the South Yorkshire town already world famous for its Pakistani-heritage paedophile rape gangs - have been charged with sex offences.
They include none other than Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, one of Britain's first Muslim peers.
Lord Nazir Ahmed, the former Labour Party peer, has been charged with two counts of attempted rape and one count of indecent assault.
He is one of three men charged by South Yorkshire Police as part of an investigation into sexual offences.
The other two, 68-year-old Mohamed Farouq and 63-year-old Mohammed Tariq, both from Rotherham, are respectively charged with four and two counts of indecent assault.
All three men are due to appear at Sheffield Magistrates' Court on 19 March 2019.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) confirmed the charges against Ahmed relate to two complainants - a boy and a girl...
Lord Ahmed, you may recall, has been a fierce critic of child grooming, urging mosques and communities to properly confront the issue.
Sadly, it isn't the noble lord's first brush with the law: in 2009 he was jailed for dangerous driving after his gold X-Type Jaguar ploughed into another car on the M1, killing its occupant.
Bizarrely, he blamed that conviction on a 'Jewish conspiracy', prompting accusations of anti-Semitism that led to his suspension from the Labour Party.
He never rejoined.
Surprising, really - you'd think Labour under 'anti-Zionist' Comrade Corbyn would welcome back a man with his pedigree.
