    interesting article about the social work sector and the dangers of the tabloid fury, also good statistics on the massive drop in child murders in the UK over the last 30 years, as we've done far more than most countries to find a preventative, workable system.

    That interests me; the perception that everything is worse these days than in the past. How many old child abuse cases have we seen in the last 10 years arise as ex victims have finally had a support network to appeal to that was never there "when there things didn't happen" in the past? its almost like it seems worse now only because we've taken such great steps toward fixing it.
