The Baby P effect

The Daily Mail is already getting outraged at the burden on the tax payer - not of the promised tax increases - but of the alleged millions the lawyers will earn from applying to keep the identity of Baby P's mother a secret (the outrage is shared by the Times ).

The Sunday Telegraph speculates on the likely prison sentence the mother will receive (4 years seems to be the general consensus).

The Independent reports on the increase in care proceedings being issued as a result of the "Baby P" effect (a 27% rise in a 10 day period in November compared with the previous year) (this story is also picked up by the Times & the BBC (care cases 'soaring').
