Chilling words

The Times Online guest contributors Opinion

.... when the biological parent fails, the corporate parent in the form of the local authority must understand its legal obligations and honour them.

I really don't like the idea of my local authority being "the corporate parent" to my children - but I'm not sure what should be done to rescue children from the feckless and cruel - though I have a fair idea of what should happen to the F&C parents, the only counselling I would suggest would involve a breaking a baseball bat on them and sticking the splintered end where the sun doesn't shine, repeatedly.


......for starters, of course? Or are you feeling uncommonly lenient today.......:-)?
I suspect you would have a long queue of good people forming very quickly to take over the duty when your arms get tired.

In fact why wait for the biological parent to fail?
