Miss Shoesmith, 57, is one of five 'experts’ asked to appear at the Education Committee during a one-day inquiry on child safeguarding.Oh, wow! Indeed, unless it’s to point at her and say ‘Whatever she did, do the opposite!’, I really can’t see how they could gain from this.
I hope she isn’t being paid…
Fellow Labour MP Michael Dugher said: 'Wouldn't it make more sense to have people who do a brilliant job in child protection like Barnado's or the NSPCC?'I’m not convinced they are actually any better!
Last night Tory Education-Committee chairman Graham-Stuart said: 'Our job is to take evidence from people, whether they're popular or not.'Who cares whether they’re popular or not. Should the concern be whether they are competent or not?
