Why the so 'respectable' British Social Services are still allowing twins staying with the McCanns?
If people keep complaining about how bad the Portuguese police is (when in fact they're trying to solve a crime), nobody complains about the Social Services for not doing their job. The McCanns again make today one of those 'loving family' appearances on TV. That was the moment to take those kids from those child neglectors. They haven't been charged but they left the kids alone Better to be with no parents than to have neglecting parents

... because according to McCann supporters there is nothing wrong with leaving three under 4 four year olds alone in a room by themselves every night of your stay in a foreign country and I suspect that most Social Workers probably do the same thing!

social services only take kids that are not in danger and forget the ones that are

Answered By: cavetroy - 9/12/2007
Do you think they really would make the same mistake again with their twins after they have paid the ultimate price for it? Do you think the twins wouldn't face trauma and upset if they were to be taken away from their parents? Do you think they should be punished again with the loss of their other children? Would the...

WELL SAID If they did that in a foreign country, what do they do at home
Answered By: SexyL - 9/12/2007
Yeah great idea, lets take the twins off them who have already lost their big sister, and put them into the care system to grow up with no parents and a life of possible abuse. Good thinking.

As a parent of 4 and 2 stepkids, i would never leave any of the kids alone in a foreign country, let alone if they were 2 and 4.

I agree with you. It said on the radio news early this morning, that Leicestershire Social Services has received a petition of over 18,000 signatures asking for them to get involved.
Answered By: CT (Original) - 9/12/2007
Social Services get slagged off for not stepping in sooner on many occasions. Think this case is too high profile for them to act. I don't think the twins are in any danger, they will have a full house, apart from Press encampment on the doorstep, monitoring their every move.

I agree with you, they even admitted to leaving the kids alone so social services should at least investigate. If it was a single mum on an estate who admitted to the media that she left young children alone for even 10 minutes social services would be straight round there... More

I agree where are the social services ? They should been on them as soon as they arrived home. They should be making it known that this is not the way to carry on when you have young children.

Oh, for C...sake ! They left their peacefully sleeping kids in a locked room for 1 hour ! in an inclosed holiday resort. Have we all been perfect parents always?
