Bloody England, Bleeding Wales: Female Genital Mutilation

From Breitbart London, Oliver Lane reporting, we learn:

Female genital mutilation is now a factor in every area of England and Wales, from inner-city London to rural Wales, as an estimated 137,000 women and girls in the UK have already been mutilated according to tribal and religious custom.
A spokesman for Equality Now, the group who performed the study, said:

“From what we’ve seen, it comes down to migration… Southwark obviously has a higher population of migrants who have come from practising countries, but then again, you need to look at more details about which countries they have come from.”

Southwark is estimated by the group to be the local authority with the highest proportion of mutilated women, where 4.74 per cent – roughly one in 20 – of all women have been cut. The majority are thought to have been cut in their home nations, either before they moved to the UK or during special trips organised back to the home country by their family for the purpose, but FGM in Britain is believed to be increasingly prevalent. One in 10 births in the area are to women who have had FGM.

…The insular nature of the communities that practice FGM and its essentially hidden nature means even in the UK, where prosecution of the practice is comparatively proactive [BOB: …to Muslim nations – oooo! impressive that is], there have been zero successful prosecutions for mutilation.

As I read this news report [as he often does these days] William Shakespeare came to mind:

This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land,
Dear for her reputation through the world,
Is now leased out, I die pronouncing it,
Like to a tenement or pelting farm:
England, bound in with the triumphant sea
Whose rocky shore beats back the envious siege
Of watery Neptune, is now bound in with shame,
With inky blots and rotten parchment bonds:
That England, that was wont to conquer others,
Hath made a shameful conquest of itself.

—’John of Gaunt’, Richard II, Act II, Scene i

The Flames Of Albion are spreading.

SIDENOTE: From the Equality Now site:

In the United States, although it is illegal to perform FGM or to knowingly transport a girl out of the country to inflict FGM upon her, it’s been estimated by the Population Reference Bureau earlier this year that 507,000 American girls and women have either been – or are at risk of being – subjected to FGM.

We are not immune from the Inferno’s burn.
