The unhelpful , indeed cowardly, behaviour of local council officials in the scandals surrounding "grooming" and child abuse is by now widely known. It is not my intention to speculate on events outside this borough but to comment on reports I have received over past months regarding the situation in Tameside.
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who will guard the guardians? What happens when a child in care is neglected in a way which would result in that child being taken into care if that neglect was inflicted by the parent? Left alone while foster parents party? Left in the care of elderly or infirm relatives? The list could go on.
The extent of this behaviour needs to be investigated. please use the contact e-mail to let me know YOUR experiences!
