The summer has been characterised by revelations and repetitions of stories concerning state run children’s homes. The ‘highlights’, if they can be called such, concerned the town of Rotherham and Sir Cliff Richard. The remainder noted in the cartoon were even older, just as long lasting as the Rotherham tale (displayed in the Jay report) and were also quite as foul. The attempts to disclose the full story in many of these cases continue.
Perhaps the overarching parliamentary inquiry with cross-party support will help although it still lacks a chair and a remit from the Prime Minister at the time of writing.
