You Can't Have Your Children Back
Last night on News 24 I went out of my way to pay tribute to two LibDem MPs, John Hemming and Norman Lamb, who have been campaigning against forced adoption. Their interest in the subject came as a result of social services taking children from their constituents, then allowing them to be adopted by new parents before charges of child abuse against their constituents had been found dropped or found to be false. At that point the parents were told they would not be getting their children back. You can read more in the Mail on Sunday (pp57-59) or Sunday Telegraph (p8). It's a terrible and moving story and provides a warning against the all powerful State machine.
