Last week, after the convictions of three shreds of human debris responsible for the death of a 17-month old toddler, Peter Connolly (Baby P), who expired in the abject shame of a blood-soaked cot with a broken back, we witnessed governmentalism for what it is: Pass the buck, run the firgures on a spreadsheet, slap it on a powerpoint, hold a news conference, proclaim victory, and hold on to that wonderful tax-payer funded pay cheque.
What else do we learn about this sordid, and highly increasingly governmental, failure:
A sister of Baby P, the 17-month-old boy killed while under the protection of Haringey social services, was allegedly seriously abused despite also being on the council’s "at risk" register.
