'Ann Cryer, Simon Danczuk and Denis MacShane launch attack on Tony Blair

They claim his administration turned a blind eye to abuses by Asian gangs

Committee will ask whether social cohesion was put before investigations

Three Labour figures have accused Tony Blair's government of turning a blind eye to child abuse and terrorism in the Muslim community – for fear of inflaming community tensions.

Former MP Ann Cryer said the 'politically correct brigade' predominant on the left dismissed her warnings after she exposed a sex-abuse scandal involving Asian men in her constituency.

Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk said far too many on the left had been guilty of 'obsessing about multiculturalism' rather than more important issues such as child rape.
