Parliament must fix it
How did we ever get ourselves into a situation where Social Services can steal kids from their parents and put them up for forced adoption, and it becomes a criminal offence to report the details or even the grounds for the action?
Booker takes a look at this utterly bizarre situation. He's told me a lot about the cases and now I can't even publish the details – the parents and the kids will be the ones to suffer. The law that muzzles the media, that prevents the parents even telling their own kids why they can't take them home, is one that has to be changed. And it's down to our MPs to do it. Parliament made this obscene law. Parliament must fix it.
