The latest child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- Cyril Smith, the serial paedophile to whom the establishment turned a blind eye
- Lord Steel facing expulsion from Liberal Democrats after criticism in child sex abuse inquiry report
- New Zealanders would support criminalising not speaking up in child abuse cases – Simon Bridges

As long as police are free to ignore complaints of abuse reported to them by children the abusers will be free to continue their activities.
Forget Lord Steel and go for the police who did nothing. ,it is clear that police and social workers ignored many many children who repeatedly complained of being sexually abused .
If police were legally obliged to take statements from anyone complaining of sex abuse ,a few time wasters could be suitably punished for wasting police time but the majority of the complaints would be investigated.and when two or more children complained about the same alleged abuser a serious investigation could do much to halt the abuse of children in care . .
