A bit more baby p

Whilst I have been pleased to report on something other than post baby p stories they have not yet entirely gone away.

In Community Care a story about the Sun's editor, Rebekah Wade, justifying her paper's stance on the subject, following the news of the Sun's agony aunt to the Social Work Taskforce.

The Guardian and the BBC report on Oliver Letwin's critique of Labour's 'failed rule-based regulation' which he claims led to the tragedy, with a lack of emphasis on evaluating outcomes.

Not quite on topic but I doubt it would have made the headlines in other circumstances, the BBC covers the Welsh Care Council's disqualification of a social worker from practice because of her failure to follow child protection procedures. She did not follow up two anonymous referrals raising concerns about a child who was later killed.
