Here is the story of a former Director of Social Services who had become a whistleblower, but was gagged to remain silent: Silencing a scandal – the story of Colin Smart – published by The Guardian in April 1998:

“It is debatable,” he wrote, “whether the majority of children now in residential care have been more harmed by the circumstances which brought them into the system, or by their time with social services.”

    When the High Court abandons justice and protects child abusers with gagging orders – is it to curry favour from the child-molesting establishment, or the activities of their fellow judges?

    Absolutely staggering how Councils and Government departments managed to silence whistleblowers with loosing their jobs. It’s time for the World to wake up to the corruption and abuse happening within society. Bless you for keeping Victims Unit ongoing and supporting the ‘abused’ Children. Our elderly citizens are also at risk by being robbed of their homes. Jean
