Barry Thomas, 64, said he blames social workers for the horrific abuse his 26-year-old daughter Zara suffered from her evil husband David Bell.Really? Only yesterday, it was somehow all the fault of the employers of this stupid woman…
Mr Thomas added: “…If they had continued to see Zara every month, especially when the baby was born, they would have seen all the bruises.”And if she’d told them she got them falling over?
Mr Thomas said: “Whenever social services were there, he just took over.She had numerous opportunities to tell people what was going on. She didn’t.
“She was so frightened she never would have said anything to them about the abuse and they never ever saw her when she was on her own.
“Bell was always there watching everything she did and said.”
Since we don’t currently employ mind-readers as social services staff, I fail to see how they could have prevented this.
When a health visitor called at the couple’s home in Brackley Crescent, Pitsea, to check on the health of mum and her newborn daughter, Bell repeatedly turned them away. He claimed Zara was out when, in fact, she was locked in the couple’s bedroom.If the SS owe anyone a duty of care, it’s the child in this case. Not the adult.
Zara’s father said: “They need to answer our questions about why they failed to do their job properly.”Great! Ask away.
But who’s asking Zara why she seems to have no personal responsibility in this herself?
