More Babies taken into care -> More babies dying

The linked story is to one in the Sunday Telegraph which reveals that the increase in numbers of newborns taken into care has actually been accompanied by an increase in deaths of babies from homicide rather than a reduction.

To that extent it is clear that the changes in the child protection system are failing to protect children.

These are the statistics from the Telegraph

"In 1995, when 540 newborns were removed for adoption, there were 17 murders in which the victim was less than a year old. A decade later, in 2005/6, 1,400 were taken, yet the murder total rose to 24"

Could we have these statistics as a proportion of the population of newborns please. The above statistics are meaningless. Please recalculate and forward to me by email if possible. Proportionality or some reasoned statistics is required. Raw data is pointless.

Unless you mistakenly believe the newborn numbers could have dramatically changed, the rates are not "meaningless". Anyway from
[http://www.optimumpopulation.org/opt.more.ukpoptable.html]
we find
Births 1996: 722,000
Births 2005: 717,500
and the year-to-year variation swamps the difference (and newborn migration).

The murder numbers are too small to draw confident conclusions about trends except that there is no obvious improvement (assuming the years are not cherry-picked and definitions haven't changed). Yearly statistics over the whole decade would be better.

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…

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. …
