Publicised for the ridiculous decision to tear three children out of the home of foster parents with an unblemished record of care, Rotherham Council and its pathetic Labour party refuse to comment.
What's good about this story is that, even a few months ago, this would have gone unnoticed as just another failure of department heads' judgement.
However heinous the actions of Jimmy Savile, he has effectively opened a can of worms so huge that all those with form are hurriedly trying to cover their tracks, for what it's worth, and (who knows?) even make amends.
Savile's legacy may be strewn with the suffering of those children who he came into contact with but it's clear that amends are starting to be made by those that allowed his reign of terror to go on for so long.
Rotherham is all alone in its beliefs that it acted fairly but ministers from all parties are united in their opinion that this was a politically correct step too far.
The foster parents were Labour supporters but had recently changed to Ukip and this may be the devil in the detail, but to imagine that personal grudges can get in the way of extremely vulnerable children for whom the council is entrusted to care goes to show just how unaccountable and messed up the system has become.
A call for an independent body to monitor fostering and adoption is needed.
It should also be noted that each time a child is taken out of one home and waits to be placed into another, the council are the recipients of serious money. If a child stays put where he/she is happy, no extra money needs to be spent. Budgets and each individual case needs to be monitered to stop the blood-sucking system from taking advantage of the most vulnerable people on the planet.
The stupid, ignorant woman in charge of Rotherham child care should be sacked in the correct way and never be allowed to work with children again. That sort of action would make others in positions of power think twice about who they try to meddle with.
