Facilitated the operation of the Rotherham rape gangs by inhibiting the police from investigating

Former Home Secretary (from 1997 to 2001) Jack Straw was interviewed on the Today programme this morning:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qj9z

Although he was talking about foreign affairs I was disappointed that at the end the interviewer did not ask him about the Rotherham rape gangs which operated from 1997 to 2013.

As Home Secretary Jack Straw presided over the police force at a time when sections of the police were officially condemned as "institutionally racist".

Given that the current Home Secretary Theresa May told us yesterday the police (and other agencies) have become institutionally politically correct is it possible that this institutional political correctness was a reaction to Jack Straw's accusation of institutional racism?

That Jack Straw and the Labour government unintentionally facilitated the operation of the Rotherham rape gangs by inhibiting the police from investigating BME communities?
