The Kirklees Children Safeguarding Board is due to publish their final report on the Shannon Mathews abduction case.

Her (natural) father has gone to the High Court to ask for the publication of the report to be blocked. BBC News - Shannon Matthews' father bids to block case report (c) Aunty.

Isn't it a bit late for him to be concerned for her welfare?

anyone fancy a sweepstake on how often the phrase 'lessons have been learned' is used?

No, I just want £1 for every time the 'lessons have been learned' statement is used. It'd make the annual holiday to somewhere fabulous a cost-free undertaking.

"Lessons learnt" misses out the vital bit - "Lessons have been learnt - we need to not get caught next time" or "Lessons have been learnt, but we are going to do jack shit about it anyway" Or even "Lessons have been learned. The lowest on the pay scale has been sacked"

May I add: "We welcome this report on ...", etc, etc - used by all authorities when a report, usually criticising them, is released. The Civil Service is especially fond of the phrase. It is typical of Crapspeak which was imposed on us by New Labour which means "we acknowledge the publication of your ill-considered contribution to this problem ........"

I'm sticking with the simpler version... it pays for the holiday more quickly. Tequila Sunrise, anyone?
