Female genital mutilation in Britain

Unbelievable.

This disgusting practice is illegal in Britain.  It’s illegal for it to be done to a British citizen anywhere in the world.  It has been illegal for 7 years.  It happens 500-2000 times a year.

And yet there has never been a single conviction.

There must surely be blind eyes being turned here, presumably in the name of ‘cultural sensitivity’.  Don’t these mutilations sometimes go wrong and require intervention by a doctor?  Aren’t any of these girls ever examined by a doctor for unrelated reasons?  And don’t the doctors report it?  If they do, don’t the police pursue it?  Doesn’t the CPS push for prosecution?  What exactly is going on here?
