How did child protection in Northamptonshire come to this?

Failure of vulnerable children is a disgrace
Failure of vulnerable children is a disgrace

An excellent follow-up story by the local Northampton newspaper which really demands the release of the full report if the Conservative controlled council aren’t going to continue to be seen as an out of touch uncaring incompetent and “INADEQUATE” council who refuse to accept responsibility for the impact of their decisions to cut funding for the most vulnerable.

The answer to the Chronicle and Echo’s headline may be as simple as if the Conservative County Councillors had not voted to cut funding and instead spent the £2m and more of taxpayer’s money they have wasted on pet projects such as an office in Brussels and the Northampton Enterprise Partnership in looking after the most vulnerable children the care of them may well have been provided.
