http://www.sundaymail.co.uk/news/scottish-news/2007/11/25/heroin-hell-of-120-000-children-78057-20157967/ The photo and article are shocking enough. This is the most shocking part: What on earth is going on? Why do clueless social workers think it is a good idea to leave children with this sort of person? If it had been a middle-class wine drinker or bottom smacker, the kids would be in care before you could say "Orkney Islands Satanic Child Abuse" courtesy of the SS (social services). I believe there is an entrenched attitude amongst professionals that the feckess and drug-addled are "deprived" (on a par with a disability and not their fault) with the real causes of society's anguish being the middle classes - substance abusers (red wine), child abusers (the occasional reprimand rather than drug-fuelled neglect) and potential psychopaths (unproven diseases like Munchausen's by Proxy apparently endemic, as cited by so-called "experts"). Next time someone finds the kids (as they will - hopefully alive) they should probably drop them off somewhere other than Clackmannanshire Council - there are other local authorities within 5 minutes drive from anywhere in Clackmannan!
