More scandal: Haringey council's former head of children's services Sharon Shoesmith (above), who was sacked over the Baby P case, presided over another child abuse crisis involving the neglect of ten youngsters
Sharon Shoesmith should have been prosecuted in my view, not compensated. If I drove a 40 ton truck on the M1 motorway and was distracted from my duties by adjusting the radio or spilling my coffee then ploughed into a car killing a 17 month old child, the press and public would be baying for blood and I would have expected a jail sentence even though it had never been my wish nor intent for this to happen. In the same way the juggernault Ms. Shouemith was in charge of and on a salary 10 times what I earned as a truck driver meant she was neglegent in allowing 2 of her officers to attend Peters home 60+ times unchecked, (this is also the number of injuries this poor little chap had on his body when found dead)anyone with even modest parental instincts would have guessed something was wrong within one or two visits!
In the year we saw the last of the World War One ‘Tommy’s’ complete his journey on this earth and many World War Two warriors now considering how many more memorials they will attend especially in foreign lands, we appreciate what their lives and those who did not return stand for in giving us freedom of speech and a quality of life many of us take for granted and my thoughts of my late father a peace loving man facing the horror of war from the rear gunning turret of a Lancaster Bomber.
