Christopher Brooker on the Child Protection Stasi

A reminder, if we needed it, that a country does not need to be under communist rule in order to behave like a communist state...

This article is both chilling and informative. Many social workers have a great deal to answer for in this country. I don't know whether they are trained to be ruthless or whether the system grinds them down, but this story (and there are many like them) makes you want to weep. Christopher Brooker writes for The Telegraph...

'The best-known of dozens of English mothers who have fled abroad to avoid their babies being seized by social workers is Vicky Haigh, a former racehorse trainer. After her flight to Ireland three months ago, her baby is flourishing and Irish social workers seem entirely happy that she is an excellent mother. Less happy, however, is the outcome of another case I reported last year. This involved a 17-year-old girl, five months pregnant, who fled to Ireland with her parents, after receiving a letter from a social worker she had never met to say her baby would be seized the moment it was born.
After the birth, all seemed to go well, despite relentless efforts by the English social workers to persuade their Irish counterparts to return the baby to England. They blackened the family unmercifully, pointing out that the grandfather once, many years ago, served a brief prison sentence after a pub fight, while the young mother had, in her early teens, twice been given an Asbo. After a series of interviews with the family, the Irish social workers were satisfied that the baby was in good hands and that there were no grounds for further intervention.
But eventually the family’s savings ran out. Buoyed up by a glowing appraisal from the Irish social workers, they decided to return to England.
All went well until the young mother registered her baby with a GP, who reported to social workers that she was back in this country. The social workers were soon on the doorstep, threatening the girl that, unless she moved out immediately, leaving her child with its grandmother, they would take her baby...'

Thank you for spotlighting these two abominable cases.

I, too, am something of a 'conspiracy theorist', and it doesn't take a great jump of deduction to see here the fruits of the marxist Frankfurt School and Marcuse, its chief mountebank.

Their aim, the destabilising of society by destruction of religion,the family, and morality, is being relentlessly and cruelly pursued by governments all over the world.

The irony is that Lenin and Stalin totally disapproved of them.

I have posted a link to this post on my blog - http://left-footer.blogspot.com/2011/08/uk-child-protection-running-sore.html

For the moment I cannot trust myself to write anything restrained on the subject.

Thank you again and God bless.

Laurence (& Left-footer), let's not forget we also did some pretty damaging things in the way of adoption. For instance [forgive the Aussie bias! I am half Australian]:

Years ago it was said you never got anywhere in the police service unless you were either a Catholic or a mason.

Is there any truth in this?

I hear its true for masons in the police, yes. I heard that from a Catholic who is not a mason.

Unless you live in Malta, or something, I can't see how being Catholic helps you climb any career ladder. It might also help in the Vatican!
