A curious, concerning and controversial news item has appeared in the Telegraph. It is entitled “Child taken from womb by social services”. Sadly it raises more questions than it answers – important questions. Who knows what the hell has actually happened? I don’t. I can’t work it out at all. Even from the opaque press release from a solicitor involved.
It has caused a lot of twittering and a lot of unsuccessful boolean searching on bailii. It has caused a spike in my traffic, in particular to my posts on Christopher Booker, and a lot of incoming traffic from some hairdressers (forum.salihughesbeauty.com/showthread.php/12572-Essex-sedation-and-cesarean-story). Curiouser and curiouser.
Twitter says all will be revealed soon. Twitter says it is probably misreporting. I’m inclined to agree – but in any event there is a deal of clarification required urgently. There is no point in speculating with such a paucity of hard information.
If someone sends me a link to any Court of Protection or Family Division judgment when it appears (as I’m sure it must) I will post it.
