This is really revolting:

In just four days, over 200,000 caring Sun readers have signed our petition to bring the people responsible for the tragic death of Baby P to justice.


The Sun has called for the sackings of children’s services boss Sharon Shoesmith, Gillie Christou who was in charge of the council’s child protection register, social workers Maria Ward and Sylvia Henry and Dr Sabah Al Zayyat.

How much of this blaming the social services is an attempt to divert from the unbearable reality that so many parents -parents- are monsters? The tabloids, the Sun pre-eminent among them, are usually obsessed with the paedophiles lurking at the school gates or at the edge of the estate who would threaten children and family bliss with destruction. But most of the time it’s family members who are responsible.

What these people -The Sun- are doing here is sick.

If Al-Qaeda set off a bomb killing hundreds, would the Sun run a campaign calling for the heads of the security personnel whose job it is to protect people, holding them responsible for the deaths? Of course not. Because for the likes of the Sun, the security forces, like other people in power, like mummy and daddy, always know best when push comes to shove.
