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.

Now for todays news!

Nasty Men!

Nasty Brexit!

Nasty Trump!

Thats All!

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.

'CATASTROPHIC' failures in Social Services Departments

Social Services failures in Child ProtectionDamned if you do' and 'damned if you don't' doesn't apply on this page!

Year after year so many venerable children in the UK loose their lives through the 'CATASTROPHIC' failures in Social Services Departments, the Police, Health Trusts, the Family Justice system and other Childrens Organisations. 'SYSTEMATIC' failures by the very people meant, and paid by the public to protect them.

These people carry on for years without thorough investigation, without rectification, without redress. There may be client complaints, professional warnings, official inquiries, high level recommendations, police investigations - but still it goes on.

The 228 child deaths they didn't want to tell you about (Daily Mail) The death of Baby P appalled the nation. But after a six-month investigation, Live reveals an even greater tragedy: the devastating hidden toll of young children who died in the care of their families despite social services being alerted.

To complete this, the first-ever study of all 150 child-protection authorities in England, we used Freedom of Information rights to demand files in the face of cover-up tactics by agencies all the way up to Children's Secretary Ed Balls.

On the eve of yet another review into child protection, Live publishes the full damning portrait of a nation incapable of protecting its most vulnerable members

Grotesquely, and in 'secret hearings' Serious Case Reviews (SCRs) the  minority of anonymous officials found in-part responsible for child deaths are allowed to continue in their jobs with utter impunity and without prosecution.

Essential read: The shocking statitics of child deaths in the UK

This is just the tip of the iceberg on children that have died as a result of Social Services failures and it is imperative the public stay outraged and demand changes and every time they see social services failures the public must speak up because you never know when it will happen to a child you know.

Ask yourself, how often have you heard the following excuses like:
A spokesman for the Councils social service department said: "we have learned lessons from this tragic case and have already taken steps to improve procedures in the interest of our most vulnerable children to make sure it does not happen again".

And of course it does happen AGAIN and lessons are clearly not being learned. So many lives that could have been easily saved if those well paid 'professionals'  had done their jobs properly.

Social Services inspectors Ofsted stated they carried out 'internal' reviews of 50 serious cases involving death or injury to children between April 2007 and March 2009. In period between April 2007 and March 2009 282 children lost their lives and in '212 of those cases the families were known to the Social Services. Also failed by the system: 25 abused children die under the noses of social workers Daily Mail

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. M L K Jr.

The sheer scale of the injustice goes further 'than anyone can imagine' as you are about to witness!

Shame also on those authorities for not naming some of the children below.
