Power witout responsibility

Lunatics have taken over the nurseries
By Philip Johnston

For more than a year, Olive Rack lived with the threat of seeing her business ruined – even of losing her liberty – because she diligently carried out her job as a nursery teacher.

Earlier this week, she was cleared of assaulting a toddler in her care and said she wanted to get on with her job running a successful independent school in Kettering, Northants. Magistrates said there was ''no convincing evidence" to sustain the charge. In which case, why had it been brought? These things do not just drop out of the sky. There is a lengthy chain of responsibility here that blighted Mrs Rack's life for 15 months. Are any of those involved in it to be held responsible?

Read the rest of the article for a damning indictment of the systme but if you believe that the answer to the question is "yes" then I've got some bad news about Santa Claus and th Totth Fairy for you.

She should sue. Judges must be as sick of having their time wasted as everyone else standing under the government's legislative waste-pipe. They might be sympathetic to such a claim.
