Another sad death from child abuse in Essex

Lets be entirely clear. This mixed race child was known to the authorities and left with its parents who were crack addicts. This would be a logical consequences of a skewed gateway procedure that concentrates on taking into care the more adoptible children. The budgetary limits on care proceedings mean that this skews the threshold.

This happened in Essex.

I am sure another serious case review will say that the council could not have forseen this death.

You can be sure that some of these workers are so incompetent that they would not have the sense needed to put two and two together.
that a baby given crack and covered head to foot in baby talc to cover bruises would not be at risk of any serious injury or death!!

No doubt Gornell will be able to put together another article to explain this away and exonerate the workers.While the general public scratch their heads at such gross negligence.

Compare this to the solicitor who loved his child so much he fled,and his wife simply had an illness called depression.Which millions of us have had and got better.They risk losing a child for mismanagement of their case.

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England. The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity. The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back. This is an issue that needs further work. In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.
