MADELEINE MCCANN & Baby P : What Did You Do For Them, Daddy?

The mawkish reaction to Baby P’s horrific life and death has turned into an I was there moment ’.

Up and down the land young faces are turning to parents and guardians and asking: “What did you do for Baby, P?”

DAD : “Well, I singed a petition in the Sun and online calling for social workers who let him down to be sacked.”

The child blinks.

MUM : “And we went on an outing to London the spot where the Sun says the majority of Baby P’s ashes landed.”

CHILD A(rmani) : “Was the Queen there?”

DAD : “Not yet. There’s a plaque there the Sun put up that says ‘Baby P’. That was the codename for him used in the media and the courts. It means that Baby P final resting place was marked by the crime that killed him.”

Childs looks worried.

MUM : “We left a note. And you saw two-year-old Chloe, Sarah Heasman’s daughter, who told the nice man from the Sun, you know the one who stands among the gravestones with his camera:

‘When I told her we were going to see Baby P she thought we were going to play with him. I had to tell her he was asleep – it was the only way I could think of her to describe it.”

( Note to self : Do not tell the little kiddies that Baby P was tortured to death and left to die in his bloodstained cot. Tell them instead that he fell asleep. And with any luck all the visitors traipsing over his ashes will wake him up.)

CHILD A : “Does Baby P know Madeleine?”

DAD : “Yes. They are playing together in a big park .”

( Note to self : Better.)

The Sun says a million people have signed its “SACK THE SOCIAL WORKERS” petition.

PA News:

A knee-jerk reaction to the Baby P tragedy risks derailing the work of those trying to protect vulnerable children, a local authority leader is due to warn.

Margaret Easton, chairman of the Local Government Association (LGA), will say that “irreparable, long-term damage” could be caused to the services that keep youngsters safe from harm.

She will voice concerns at a special summit on child protection that some staff could “walk away” from the profession following the tragic death of a toddler.

Hurrah for the Sun. Now let’s grab the kids and go and scream “paedo!” and boo and hiss at the van leaving the courthouse…

Of course, the Baby P story needs more. It needs a paedo:

DAILY MIRROR : BABY P STEPDAD HELD IN HUNTLEY’S OLD CELL

Baby P’s stepdad has been moved to a suicideproof cell which caged Soham killer Ian Huntley. The sadistic 32-year-old was transferred to the secure unit after getting death threats in Britain’s toughest jail.

A source in Belmarsh, South East London, said: “Prisoners are desperate to get their hands on him. He is despised. His life was under threat every time he left his cell. The last prisoner subjected to such hatred was Huntley.”

And if he survives the lags how many fags is he worth? there are the columnists to worry about.

Baby P needs celebrities:

THE SUN : It’s Coldplay…

Coldplay are proud to have their finger on the pulse of burning global issues…All four band members are parents to young children and the horror of the Baby P story reached them in America.

And?

Guy, 30, who has a two-year-old daughter, said: “One of the worst crimes anyone could commit is abusing a child. It’s saddening. I can’t actually believe that people could do it. I don’t know what must have happened for them to do something like that. It is beyond comprehension.”

Is there a song in it?

And what of our Maddie? Little news of late of Madeleine McCann . She’s missing. She is still missing.
