Social services do make terrible mistakes and they do take away children from parents who are innocent of any crime against their children. If you do not believe me, consider the Cleveland Child abuse scandal and the disgraceful miscarriage of justice againt Sally Clark. This is not to criticise this profession in general but to err is human.
At the present time it is illegal to make a protest against your children being taken away, and there is precious little recourse to justice if this happens. The courts making the decision are in secret and there is no public scrutiny allowed to scrutinise the courts and tribunials making this decision. This means that if another terrible miscarriage of justice occurs, there will virtually be no chance of rectifying things because to even criticise the authorities is to break the law. This is truly frightening because it allows a future, possibly much less benign, British state to destroy the families of political dissidents. Bad laws cause terrible injustices.
I do understand the need for anonymity in these cases, but there must be some way that can be found to protect the rights of parents and families and anonymity. Also the outcomes for children in care are far worse than for children in stable families. The so called precautionary principle does not work here.
