    Excuse my ignorance. I did not know that father’s were not involved in child protection. Although on reflection if it’s anything like our local Social Services men’s roles are taken up by the young lad who does Admin work and the all important man at the head of Social services who is there to commiserate with you and send condescending and patronising letters. The bulk of decision making is done by Women who see themselves as guardians of mothers relationship with the children to the exclusion of anyone else. (Bye Bye Daddy!!!)

    Sorry, that’s as nice as i can make it.
