No More Excuses In Haringey Or Downing Street
The story of Baby P is a national scandal of monstrous proportions. Appallingly handled by Gordon Brown in the House yesterday, even the silky, smooth Ed Balls cannot cover up the Prime Minister’s inability to deal with David Cameron’s questions. Closer though to the shameful failures that allowed this child to be tortured to death is Sharon Shoesmith, the Director of Children’s Services at Haringey. Putting aside for a couple of sentences the question of her culpability in Baby P’s death, we simply have no room for anyone who demonstrates such utter incompetence in communications. She must be dismissed immediately. No question of being allowed to resign. She must be sacked.
