Shaun Wright refuses to resign over Rotherham child abuse report

The disgraced Police & Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire, Shaun Wright, has resigned from the Labour Party but is refusing to resign as PCC.

The former Labour councillor was responsible for the social services department of Rotherham Borough Council for five years while it facilitated the rape and abuse of 1,400 vulnerable children. Nobody at Rotherham Borough Council has been punished for their criminal neglect, nor have the police launched an investigation into the staff and councillors who knew about the abuse but failed to act on it.

Shaun Wright's position is simply untenable and if he had a shred of decency in him he would have resigned as soon as the report came out instead of clinging on, maintaining the pretence that he still has credibility in the role.
