Another child died: Baby P. And the Social Services Department involved? The same one which oversaw Victoria Climbie’s death eight years ago.
From The Cockroach Catcher:
“As we move into the new century child psychiatrists are faced with more and more guidelines and protocols.
Since Maria Colwell, Social Services have been working under revised Guidelines and Child Protection Procedures. The sad truth is that more children continue to be abused and killed despite these tighter guidelines and procedures.
My hunch is that despite media coverage many of us still fail to grasp the dark side – the dark side of human nature. Until we do, we shall continue to read about child abuse, abductions and murders of the worst kind.” Chapter 31 Adapting To Guidelines
A post on NHS Blog Doctor said “Time to crucify the social workers”. Your can read it here.
“Social workers are professional ‘do-gooders’. What is wrong with that? Some of them are vegetarians and I dare say that some of them have geography degrees. A few may even, Heaven forefend, read the Guardian. So what? They also happen to be a group of highly trained, intelligent, caring professionals.”One thing is certain; they are not in it for the money.”
They need to see “The Dark Side” of human nature.
Remember Peter Paul and Mary? “When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?”
