The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in many individual cases, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity.

I think the BBC, Sky and all the rest of the crap UK TV news channels are suffering from some sort of 'PC Phobia'. After all they accuse us of suffering a mental illness (Phobia) if you say anything against Homosexuals, Transvestites, Feminists, the Royal Family or even Sir Mo Farah who now wants to be known as Sir Mohamed by the way.

Child G aged 3 months

Essex Social Services
Social Services failings show the mother had a history of mental health issues. 2015

Serious brain injury to a 3-month-old girl in May 2013. Mother pleaded guilty to child neglect. The mother's partner was convicted of causing the injuries. Both received custodial sentences.

Background: prior to Child G’s birth her half-sibling had been subject to a child protection plan under the category of neglect. In the months before and after Child G’s birth, mother had attended hospital a number of times due to injuries to Child G’s half-sibling. Child G's mother had diagnosed learning difficulties and "extremely low" IQ classification. She had a history of difficult family relationships and mental health issues. Mother’s partner was known to the probation service and other local authorities due to a history of violence towards women and children.

Key issues: issues identified include the challenge of sharing information about vulnerable families across GP's, midwives and health visitors; the need to focus of the role of fathers/partners through pregnancy and early years; and the need for offender managers to report any safeguarding concerns when an offender starts a new relationship.
Recommendations: include the development of a system to allow tracking of offenders convicted of offences against children and reviewing and monitoring of information sharing in health services.
