Social workers accused of "penguin mentality"
The link is to the story in the Birmingham Mail today. This is where a Birmingham politician (not me) has said:
“It’s what I call the penguin complex among social workers. They live in a different continent to the rest of us, like Antarctica, and at the slightest criticism they all go into a huge huddle, turning their backs and shield each other.”
In part the rest of society is to blame by tending to look for a scapegoat when things go wrong. However, things will not improve if people do not respond to suggestions for change other than by resisting it.
