What does it cost the taxpayer when Social Services steal children?

People have a very hard time believing that child snatching aka state kidnapping is actually taking place.But Bob Geldof does!

It may, however, also be helpful to use Freedom of Information requests as a ‘reality check’. Below is information about 4 councils:

1) This Freedom of Information (FOI) request reveals about Norfolk Council:

2005    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £276,580.71
2006    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £307,312.17
2007    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £434,834.62
2008    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £394,175.82
2009    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £437,929.88
2010    Counsels Fees Child Protection  £487,166.29

The work was placed with a variety of Barristers Chambers, but principally
Octagon Chambers in Norwich, and 7 Bedford Row in London.

Google reveals a link between Octagon Chambers and Solicitors from Hell.

  1. Colin Peters says:

    All of the figures and statistics prove just one thing. – The Devil really does look after his own.

  2. peter oakes says:

    These figures confirm “philanthropic ?child abduction” is an industry, in
    common parlance it is child kidnap & trafficking ! I know because I caught-out
    Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss then head of the Family Division kidnapping
    CRB from Stoke on Trent.

    My enquiries revealed the Royal Commission Enquiry NSW police paedophiles
    needless to say I was horrified to find the New South Wales Social Services
    were providing paedophiles with children and selling children at the same time
    to child-less couples, Is this going on in the UK. ?

    It all appears to be money driven and We should be asking the questions

    Where are all these stolen children NOW ? are they SAFE ? are they
    HAPPY ? in their new life – confinement. How often are they checked-up on by the Social Services or are they ABANDONED ? to their fate.

    What is there future is it monitored and safeguarded ? Why does Edward
    Timpson MP want to remove a child within minutes of birth from it,s mother ?

    Is it to prevent the most natural act in the world ? a mother bonding with her
    newborn baby. As Anne Widdecombe said ” there is something of the night
    about this ” shadowy practice with dark intentions !

    • Robert Dooran says:

      You’ve misquoted Anne Widdecombe. She actually said ‘there is something of the night about him’. She was talking about ex Conservative leader Michael Howard and his resemblance to Count Dracula.

  3. peter oakes says:

    I know exactly what Anne Widdecombe said ! I just wanted You to confirm what an utter arsehole and sorry sad bastard you really are Robert Dooran.

    Not one jot of support for a campaign trying to end the evil exploitation
    of children for sexual abuse and monetary gain. Remember a–ehole anyone
    who cannot support or at least ignore good causes must be an accessory
    after the fact to the evil offences.

    You are that warped you could not manage to Google: Royal Commission
    Enquiry NSW police paedophiles, or may be you did but won,t admit it.

    All you are about is pure clap trap because you are a destructive negative
    person bereft of any creative meaningful abilities

  4. peter oakes says:

    Dear A—Hole I have not made any racial slurs ! just told the tactless truth.

    If you cannot contribute factual evidence or personal experience of being
    a victim, p ss off and annoy elsewhere !

    • Robert Dooran says:

      The expression ‘uncle Tom’ is clearly derogatory.

      Do you think that it is acceptable to refer to a young black man as a ‘spade’?

  5. peter oakes says:

    Your stupidity beggars belief a–hole ! you will not entice – entrap an
    honourable decent individual like myself, I believe you are in my opinion
    a paedophile type who use these methods to groom your victims.

    If you were honourable and decent you would support our efforts in upholding
    the law and trying to bring similar types like yourself to justice, of course
    if you are free from guilty thoughts and actions you will not have anything but
    respect for myself Sabine, this website and all the victims we give our support
    and feelings to. On the other hand it would be my pleasure to, as Albert
    Pierpoint would say ” swing you ”

    Cos I,m the king of the swingers, you ain,t seen nuttin yet.

    You shudd,nt kid a kidder Dick Head

    • Robert Dooran says:

      I asked you a perfectly reasonable and straightforward question. Your inability to answer it speaks volumes. Let’s not forget that you described victims of the holocaust as ‘sheep’ not long ago. An ‘honourable and decent’ person would apologise.

      You appear to be attempting to align yourself closely with Sabine and this website. Are you a spokesman for Victims Unite? Does Sabine endorse your use of racially charged language?

      ‘Cos I,m the king of the swingers, you ain,t seen nuttin yet.’

      Oh sit down Granddad, we’ve already established that you’re about a hundred.

  6. peter oakes says:

    I am sure A—hole you know full well Albert Pierpoint was the last public executioner ( hangman ) who called himself “king of the swingers”.

    You are to stupid for words ! and knowledge. Go back to seducing children
    you sorry sad sack, But don,t get caught !

    And to frustrate you further you little sh-t I will not respond to your
    sticks & stones.

    LOL, Bye Bye,
