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 John aged 10 weeks

Essex Social Services
John was the subject of a child protection plan under neglect.

November 2015

Non-accidental head injury to a 10-week-old boy from a Gypsy, Roma, Traveller community, thought to be due to being shaken. Both parents were charged and care proceedings initiated.

Background: John was the subject of a child protection plan under neglect. Both parents had a history of drug addiction and criminal behaviour. 4 of the mother's older children had been removed from her care by a neighbouring local authority, including 1 child who was born with drug withdrawal symptoms. Father’s 2 older children had been subject to child protection plans, primarily because of his domestic violence.

Key issues: the significance of parental histories; the challenge of the family's frequent moves on effective information sharing; and the increasing focus of the father as the source of risk.

Recommendations: include, improve the sharing of historical information about parents; parenting capacity assessments to feature in all core and pre-birth assessments; GPs to be invited to attend all child protection conferences; and the strengthening of guidelines relating to missed appointments (“Did not attend” or DNAs).
