The children living in squalor on crisps etc are clearly suffering from criminal neglect so police should have been called in and the parents or fosterers prosecuted and the children taken !
The trouble is that most of the resources are swallowed up persecuting parents who have commuitted no crime whatever but who are said to pose “a risk” !
I can only repeat “NO PUNISHMENT WITHOUT CRIME”. would solve the Financial problems.especially if social workers were either abolished or diverted to the task of purely helping families and never persecuting them.or appearing in court against them.
Criminal neglect and all other crimes affecting family life should be dealt with by the police who are trained in such matters.

Ian, please also remember the millions of pounds spent by the families in the courts, so to steal the kids or lets say one kid the families also keep the legal teams in work then there is the court fees and the rest of the army just in one childs life taken into care, so to stop stealing the kids there would be untold unemployment,

There are still too many pitfalls and insufficient genuine helping-hands in our communities but one is also left wondering – what has happened to our communities?
Diversification of resources and the need for people to find work outside their own communities has led to the necessary migration of people for generations and this has been exacerbated by the need to accommodate refugees who have had to flee war zones over many years, as well as those escaping persecution. Then too, there are those who seek a better life and are prepared to offer their services for financial reward – but let’s face it, there’s nothing wrong with that.
We are still too quick to jump to wrong conclusions and too easily inclined to seek someone else to blame for our own shortcomings. We are none of us perfect, but it would be comforting to know there was an official line open to communicating with someone who was on our side and prepared to LISTEN.
