UPDATE: The social workers responsible had access to the local NHS records of Baby P. Look at all those signatures at the bottom of the agreement. Hope they sleep well tonight.
UPDATE: Sharon Shoesmith is the head of Social Services. She's not going to sack anyone. Ask her why firstname.lastname@example.org
From Jeff in the comments section here
If an Air Traffic Controller screws up and kills people, he is charged with manslaughter and faces jail.
If an aircraft mechanic screws up and kills people he is charged with manslaughter and faces jail
If a soldier or policeman screws up and kills someone, he is charged with manslaughter and faces jail.
If you screw up while driving your car and kill someone, you will be charged and face jail.
If a social worker screws up and a child dies, there will be handwringing MPs, commissions, reccommendations, promises that it will not happen again, social workers off sick on "stress", etc etc.
But NOT a single one of those who let a child die will ever face jail.
Old Holborn agrees
