Asian sex gang 'were acting within cultural norms'
by Graeme Paton
David Starkey risks fresh controversy by claiming that Asian men jailed over a major child sexual exploitation ring were "acting within their own cultural norms".
The historian said "nobody ever explained" to the men – eight of Pakistani origin and one from Afghanistan – that women could not be treated in this way.
Dr Starkey called for better teaching of English history to create a "common identity" and overcome the challenges of multiculturalism.
