Lest We Forget....

While even Special Ed Milliband is running for cover from the Rotherham fiasco - although not to the extent of expelling anyone from his allegedly moderate, middle of the road party - it's worth winding the tape back and hearing what Cast Iron Dave's Nu Tory Party used to say about these people:
Social workers are too often vilified for creating problems rather than given due credit for the work they do with the vulnerable, a senior Conservative politician said today.
Tim Loughton, the shadow children's minister, told the National Children's Services Commissioning Conference in London that social workers are caricatured as a result of general ignorance about what they actually do.
Loughton, who also chairs the Conservatives' commission on social work, attacked what he described as the "deeply corrosive situation where too many social workers are seen as part of the problem rather than an integral part of the solution".
Good call, Timmy! Yes, indeed, another one of Cast Iron Dave's Certified Super Genius Squad gives the bumpkins a finger-wagging lecture about how they just don't get it, and then it all goes horribly wrong. It's almost like there's a pattern here.

There's a chicken and egg aspect to all this too. As Britain's sexiest blogger said at the time, Loughton's despicable position was a renunciation of the principles of both conservationism and democratic governance. No wonder liberal fanatics feel free to use innocent children as pawns.

The case in Rotherham is the perfect barometer of the utter failure of Nu Tory Cringe Conservatism to achieve much of anything. They came, they saw, they hung around for a bit.
