Mixed race toddler's carers found guilty (Kirklees)

This is another of those cases where one would have expected intervention from Childrens Social Services. She was a mixed race 4 year old. Harder to get adopted than an unharmed baby. It is important to remember that with all the social workers leavingt the profession because they cannot stand doing what they are doing it leaves fewer and fewer experienced people. Those people need to hunt up the "adoptible commodities". That cuts the time available to protect children.

Apparently an "independent professional" has done a review. The question is independent from what. Not independent from the profession. Not independent from the paying local authority.

What I don't understand about this case is the lack of concern about the child.
They obviously did not speak to the neighbours,or the father or monitor her and keep in contact with the nursery staff.After informing her parents to take her.

It just smacks of indifference.A few backgrounds checks would have determined the boyfriend was a drug addict.He probably had convictions for assault.

I don't believe the child had no marks. Abuse is persistent and tey obviously did not check her thoroughly.

Also a quick check round the house would show the child had no toys.

This is negligence and incompetence.They should be fired. an independent investigator who was chosen by the council and paid a handsome sum by the named council absolved them of any wrongdoing.

I really don't know how the sws and the independent investigators and everyone involved in this cover up sleep at night.

Babies are being removed because there may be a risk of possible emotional harm in the future.These are parents who love their children and cry every night when losing them.

Yet serious cases like this are ignored.

There is something seriously sick about the child protection system as it is.Nothing will change while sws like the above will stay in their jobs. In fact these workers tend to be promoted when its all been forgotten.

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …

Statement re Police investigation into Harassment and Perverting the Course of Justice.

It was recently reported that the police were not investigating the allegations of Perverting the Course of Justice that I had made. This came as a surprise to me as I had been told for some time that my allegations were to be considered once the VRR had been rejected. I have now had a very constructive meeting with Staffordshire police on Friday 29th June 2018 and the misunderstandings have been resolved. At that meeting the evidence relating to the perversion of the course of justice and the harassment campaign against my family were discussed. The police have decided to investigate both the perversion of the course of justice and also the harassment campaign. I would like to thank them for changing their decision and I accept their apology for the way in which they did that. I am also in possession of written confirmation a police force would be investigating allegations that a vulnerable witness has been harassed for trying to expose the campaign against me. I hope that the aut…

I have only just found this one which I think is accurately reported below (but if it is not please give me an accurate report).

KING’S BENCH DIVISION

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

November 9 1923

Editor’s comments in bold.

Here, the magistrates’ clerk retired with the bench when they were considering a charge of dangerous driving. The clerk belonged to a firm of solicitors acting in civil proceedings for the other party to the accident. It was entirely irrelevant that there had been no evidence of actual influence brought to bear on the magistrates, and the conviction was duly quashed.

LORD HEWART CJ:
It is clear that the deputy clerk was a member of the firm of solicitors engaged in the conduct of proceedings for damages against the applicant in respect of the same collision as that which gave rise to the charge that the justices were considering. It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the…
