In a landmark decision, the victim, who was made to live in a cold cellar and carry out domestic chores, will receive the payout after GMP took out the Proceeds of Crime case.

The £101,300.72 award will be used to compensate the victim, who is deaf, for years of unpaid domestic servitude at the hands of Ilyas and Tallat Ashar.

Ilyas Ashar, 84, of Cromwell St, Eccles, was previously found guilty of 13 counts of rape against the girl following a re-trial at Minshull Street Crown Court.

He had earlier been convicted of two counts of people trafficking and three offences of benefit fraud at an earlier trial. He was sentenced to a total of 13 years in prison in October 2013 which was increased to 15 years by the Court of Appeal in February 2014.

His wife, Tallat Ashar, 69, was also found guilty of two counts of trafficking and seven offences of benefit fraud. She was sentenced to five years, but this too was increased to six years by appeal judges in February this year.

The victim was believed to be aged about nine she was brought into this country from a Pakistani village in Pakistan. She was never had any education or professional support for her disability. She had significant communication difficulties.

On 8 June 2009, officers were assisting Salford Trading Standards with an investigation into money laundering. The victim’s details had been used on bank accounts linked to the couple so officers asked to speak to her when they went into the house.

Illyas Ashar indicated that she was in the cellar and officers found her sleeping on a cot bed.

Trading Standards Officers tried to speak with the victim but quickly realised she was incapable of communication and, with the police officers, removed her to a place of safety.

An initial assessment of her needs indicated she only had limited ability to communicate through facial expressions, informal gestures, pictures and body language.

Despite being very shy, social workers realised the victim was intelligent and keen to communicate about her situation. She needed specialist help and support to help her to make herself understood.

It became obvious that the victim had no involvement in the fraudulent transactions her name had been used for. She could not read or write and all the offences were carried out by Ilyas and Tallat, using the girl’s name.

During the course of interviews with the victim, it was discovered that she was raped on a regular basis by Ilyas

David Cameron’s speech today at the Conservative Conference in Birmingham was interesting for all those concerned with the English Question. At last a section of the British Political Establishment, which for the last 15 years has been happy to see English concerns about England’s rights dismissed, came out with a proposal which partly addressed the democratic representational part of the English Question.
The English Democrats welcome David Cameron’s English repositioning. David Cameron infamously told Andrew Marr that he would not change the unfair Barnett Formula which gives over £1600 extra to the average man, woman and child in Scotland compared to those in England (or £6,600 more to the average family). He said that his attitude was because “I’m a Cameron (and) there is quite a lot of Scottish blood flowing through these veins.”
EVEL may be a very little move which constitutionally speaking is unlikely to work very well. Significantly it only starts to answer the least important part (representation) of the English question because it does nothing about providing an English First Minister or Government for all the English only departments which are currently controlled exclusively from the British legislature at Westminster.
Robin Tilbrook, the Chairman of the English Democrats said:- “I welcome the fact that even a politician as hostile to English national feelings, as Dave Donald Cameron, who infamously said previously he would not even encourage English people to celebrate St George’s Day since he wanted to be the “Prime Minister of Great Britain and not just England” and who said he would “fight the little Englanders wherever he found them”. Even he has nevertheless been driven by however unworthy motives of political careerism to partially address the English Question.”
Robin, who is a senior litigation Solicitor with extensive experience of Constitutional Law, continued:- “The English Democrats are confident that, as a solution, English votes for English laws will not work for the reasons set out below in the annex to this press release, nevertheless David Cameron’s move will start a dynamic process in which we hope that the British Establishment’s united hostility to England and their attempts to break England up into “Regions” will be ultimately check-mated.”
“David Cameron is a spinner not a conviction politician and his interest in making this move is entirely as part of the political chess game within the Westminster elite.”
“David Cameron has done this not because he has any genuine conviction about the need to improve English democracy, but as a canny chess move to put Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg into political check. The legislative process will require their Parties to either come out in favour of this move which will damage their Party position in the House of Commons or to oppose it risking a significant political backlash from the 60.4% or 32 million adults in England that identified themselves in the 2011 Census as being English only and not British.”

English Votes for English Laws (“EVEL”) is a Westminster focussed political gimmick not a constitutionally valid solution to the “English Question” and cannot work for the following reasons:-
1. If EVEL is introduced without legislation it would probably be merely a procedural Convention, without the force of law. It is much easier for politicians to change Conventions than to repeal Acts of Parliament.
2. EVEL does not address who governs England (The English Question) and would lead to a situation whereby a non-English Minister could propose legislation but be unable to speak or vote in support of it. The Prime Minister (“PM”) appoints Ministers for English Departments. These appointees may be, and have been, from parts of the UK that are devolved and such Ministers are thus unaccountable to those whom their policies and actions affect. Similarly a PM can, and has had, control of all English matters even though they do not affect his own constituents.
3. EVEL does not address the issue of who scrutinises and revises laws for England. Uniquely in the UK it is only English domestic law that is passed to the House of Lords, many of the members of which are not from England.
4. (As in 1964) EVEL will create problems if a government is elected without a majority in England, in any such case the UK government would find it very difficult to pass legislation on matters that only affect England and would be impelled to break the EVEL Convention.
5. EVEL will not provide a voice for England either with regard to “Reserved matters” concerning, for instance, the distribution within the UK of Treasury funds nor in international fora such as the British/Irish Council or the EU. In contrast, each of the devolved administrations has both UK Secretaries of State and also Ministers within the devolved Executives to champion the interests of their citizens in these meetings and to influence the outcomes in their own countries’ favour.
6. All Members of Parliament (“MPs”) at Westminster should be elected equally across the UK to represent their constituents in the UK Parliament. EVEL will create two classes of MPs in Westminster. However since devolution Westminster MPs do not equally represent their constituents in all matters as they should do. There are now two categories of MP with reference to devolved matters; accountable and unaccountable. Some are accountable to the electorate that voted for them in all matters and some are not, namely those that have the power to debate and vote on English matters that do not concern their constituents.
7. EVEL is an unequal and short-term fix for a long-term problem. The constitution of the United Kingdom was unbalanced by Devolution and only a rational, coherent and logically defensible Federal system can realistically be expected to halt the slide towards the dissolution of the UK.

The English Democrats North West calls for the flying of the original Lancashire flag

The English Democrats North West calls for the flying of the original Lancashire flag, the flag of the County Palatine of Lancaster, that is, the historic county of Lancashire not the local authority area named after it, a red rose on white background.
If Scotland votes “YES” for independence then the UK no longer exists, this also concludes that the rules from the flag institute that they wont allow the same flag to be registered twice in the UK will no longer apply, as Scotland and England will be independent nations, allowing for the county of Lancashire to once again proudly fly its traditional colours of a red rose on white background and ditch the one on a yellow background.
