I ask the question as Christopher Booker, in his comment piece in the Sunday Telegraph, has been highlighting cases of what appears to be 'heavy-handed' action by social services where it is thought abuse of children has occurred. His latest revelation follows the same 'mis-placed authoritarian line of action by social services' as previous cases about which he has written.
Booker is unable to report all the facts involved in cases like this for legal reasons yet the question must be asked as to the whereabouts of the MP in whose constituency these 'care orders' are enacted and what the hell has he/she been doing about it. As our elected representatives go to great lengths to get their names into print, one could be forgiven for expressing surprise that mention of an MP's intervention is most noticeable by its absence. Oh and where is the Coalition, bearing in mind that 'BrownRule' has ended?
To plagiarise Thomas Jefferson:
"When State bodies fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear State bodies, there is tyranny"
It is totally beyond comprehension that in a 21st century society, fed a daily diet of Human Rights and other PC crap, any state body can act in such a totalitarian manner as do the 'Little Hitlers' who seem to propogate children's social services. On the other hand, maybe not!
