The government last night announced that at-risk youngsters will be given a really good pasting by social workers ‘to get them used to it’ before they are returned to their abusive parents and the real action gets underway.
The ruling comes after yesterday’s tragic case of 6-year-old, Ellie Butler, who was beaten to death by her violent father just 11 months after being returned to his care by a high court judge, who had expressed her “joy” at the time for having restored the child to her future killer.
A Home Office spokesperson said last night: “In view of this tragic case we have decided to give all our at-risk youngsters a really good pounding on a daily basis. This will hopefully toughen them up for the sustained abuse they will get after the courts have handed them back to their psychotic parents. This way, it won’t be as much of a shock to them”
When asked if any children were consulted or given a choice prior to the decision; he replied “Of course not. After all, we know what’s best for them”
