A short life of misery and pain
"Mistakes have been made, NO lessons will be learnt!!"
Isn’t this what ministers and politicians should actually say?
Or, “Live and DON’T learn”.
“Oh yes, we know that we failed in the case of Victoria Climbie but we are reviewing our procedures and this will not happen again”.
Until the next time of course.
The next time being now, in the case of “Baby P”. The awful thing is that children everywhere are subject to varying levels of abuse, in some cases, stomach churning levels.
This week I have read this.
And watched this.
What do you do if a child is on the at risk register and is clearly suffering at the hands of their mother and whichever scumbag she happens to be sharing her drugs with at the time?
That's right, offer to send the mother and her boyfriend on a foreign holiday to "get away from it all", courtesy of the good old, long suffering British taxpayer.
Don't pull their fingernails out with forceps for being a pair of sadistic bastards; send them abroad for a week (this is what we do here in England to spiteful slobs who can't be bothered to take care of their children).
Oh man, what is wrong with some people, what the hell is going on???
Years ago, whenever their was a news story on this topic, my Mum used to say, “I hope they get their just desserts in prison”.
Let's hope so Mum.
And if you’re still reading and you suspect a child is the victim of abuse – even if it’s just a nagging doubt – then pick up the phone and call Childline on 0800 11 11. Alternatively, call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.
Don’t spend the rest of your life regretting doing nothing!!
Go on then!!
(There is a Panorama special on this case on Monday 17th November).
Make sure you watch it.
