Give Us The Child: A Look At Calderdale Council’s Social Services Officer

by | 19th, August 2007

DIZZY spots this:

We’re taking your unborn child

The following is a recording of a Social Services officer from a Calderdale Council informing a couple that the Council will be taking her unborn baby into care as soon as it is born whilst also saying there is “no immediate risk to your child from yourselves”.

The Telegraph is reporting that the Council is threatening legal action and demanding the recording be removed from YouTube.

So why are they threatening to take the child away the minute it’s been born? Well for a start the partially sighted mother has apparently had a depression and has a “personality disorder” and the social workers believe the child will suffer “emotional abuse”. The neighbours have also complained that the couple are disorderly with their lives.

The most bizarre thing here is that the Social Services freely admit they have no reason to suspect the child will be physically abused, sexually abused, mistreated, and as he’s say on the tape, is at “no immediate risk from yourselves”. So errr…why are they taking it again?
