Scrap emotional abuse as an excuse for removing children

Comment 18th August 2010

The cold facts are as follows:-
1;-Thousand of young children and even babies at birth are taken by social workers for a prediction of "risk of emotional abuse" .Far more than those suffering physical abuse who are like baby P often left to die.
2:-The judges agree with social services 99% of the time and allow these children to be given away to strangers for adoption against the will of parents who fight to no avail in countless expensive court cases.
3:-If the parents protest publicly with names they are jailed "to protect their own privacy !".Journalists can name parents in criminal cases but cannot name any parties or witnesses in family court cases so they rarely bother to go!
4:-Adoptions are closed (adopters are secret) in spite of research showing that open adoptions where parents know where their children are work better. Parents who manage to locate their children after adoption are jailed if they dare to wave at them in passing or send a birthday card !
5:-Lord Justice Wall (The Senior family court judge) said that the determination of some social workers to place children in an "unsatisfactory care system" away from their families was "quite shocking".In a separate case on which Sir Nicholas Wall also sat, Lord Justice Aikens described the actions of social workers in Devon as "more like Stalin's Russia or Mao's China than the West of England" !
6:-The remedies are simple .When permanent or long term separation of parents from children is envisaged parents should have the same rights as a burglar or libelled person and demand to be heard by a jury.(Most judges are NOT like Lord Wall or Lord Aikens) Hearsay,(testimony from absent witnesses) must be banned as it already is in "normal" UK courts.
Lastly the gag must be removed from parents (not necessarily the press)who like rape victims should always be allowed to talk freely about their own case if the choose to do so, and to converse freely with their children at "contact" without censorship !

Why does this matter?

THE IDEA is important becase thousands of families are broken up every day by unscrupulous social workers supported by copliant judges in the family courts.

The proposed reforms are as simple as they are necessary and would save a lot more money than they would cost to implement.
