Default Rise in care applications in England


Rentseekers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your fees.
The rise in care applications follows the publicity given to the death of Baby Peter in London in 2007.

The BBC's local government correspondent, Mike Sergeant, said the new figures did not indicate an underlying social deterioration but rather that councils were becoming more risk averse and were intervening more quickly when children were thought to be at risk.
Well that's all right then....

This is E&W only and I may be being a trifle unfair in the slant I have put on it. But there is something about people with funny hair-cuts who run the like of Cafcass that always makes my antennae twitch.... and a rise of over 3,500 is huge.

Yes, and it's people's lives. It's children's stability and lives. We don't know (or possibly care) how much damage is being done in pursuit of the almighty ass-protection racket.

Children's lives. Trauma. Deprivation. Dare I say TORTURE?
