Camilla Cavendish's article re baby Brookes

Note the use of the phrase "appalling vista". The judges accept the system as it stands because they refuse to see that it is very badly broken. This is much like Lord Denning refusing the criminal appeal of the Birmingham 6 because he could not accept the "appalling vista" that the police had lied. The number of miscarriages of justice are in the thousands.
It ends up doing a lot of harm.
That's to children as well as parents.
