The Haringey Boy

The boy, known as Baby P, suffered bruising from beatings. (scars of on Baby P's face were hidden with smeared chocolate)

The boy died in a blood-spattered cot in Haringey, London, in 2007.

A post mortem showed the boy had a broken back and eight broken ribs

He had spent much of his life being treated as a punchbag.

Gordon Brown's Labour Government ignored a whistleblower's plea for an investigation into Haringey Council's social services department six months before the boy died.

The whistleblower wrote: "Child abusers are not being tackled."

Haringey Council is run by Labour, Gordon Brown's party.

On the boy's final day alive, police told his mother that they would take no further action over suspicions she had assaulted him.

The boy's injuries

The killer of the boy had a fascination for Nazi memorabilia.

When he and the lodger clicked their fingers the boy would touch his forehead on the floor in fear of another beating.

The Daily Mail news paper , 26 September 2008, showed Ed Balls, UK Secretary of State for Children, wearing a Nazi uniform.

Jason Swift

In 1985, 14-year-old Jason Swift was killed by a child-abuse gang.

Jason is believed to have lived in Islington council's Conewood Street children's home, in London. (Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

Sidney Cooke, Leslie Bailey, Robert Oliver, and Lennie Smith, were imprisoned in 1989 for the manslaughter of Jason Swift.

Cooke and his gang had sexually tortured and prostituted a number of boys.

The gang is believed to have killed at least nine children.[2]

Cooke was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

In 1998, Cooke was let out of prison eight years early.

There have been allegations that very powerful people have been involved in a child-abuse ring connected to Islington children's homes. ( Jersey child abuse link to Islington, London)

In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.

She became a close friend of Tony Blair, who lived in Islington, a few doors away from Hodge.

In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.

In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.

On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.

In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children.

I suspect the outcome of this latest problem-reaction-solution, is that ever-unaccountable social workers will be given wide-ranging new powers that will put ordinary parents in fear of a "pre-emptive strike". Anyone remember Blair wanting to tackle delinquency in the womb?
The real solution would take us in a far different direction: Stop recruiting half-wits to social services, pay the newcomers much higher salaries, BUT hold them accountable for their decisions, to the point of conviction and gaol if they get it wrong.
