A very interesting Freedom of Information Request has come to light regarding The Serious Case Review of the sad failure of Birmingham Social Services to act on the information coming at them from many directions warning of the danger Khyra Ishaq was in. It seems that the NSPCC carried out the review free of charge; was that because it gave them a chance to try and tie the blame to home education? They have been vocal in slurring home educators, without any evidence by their own admission, from the beginning of the Badman/Balls attack (resulting in a well hidden apology to home educators) so they were hardly any more independent in their assessment than Badman as the SCR shows. But the NSPCC do not own a money tree, they are funded by the government and the public, are they funded to cover Birmingham Local Authorities arse? I think not!
