After decades of wrongfully stealing children from loving parents, filthy Britain’s social workers have finally gone too far even for them.
The shocking case of an Italian mother being forced to have a caesarean-section so her baby could be snatched and adopted may well bring down the whole corrupted and despicable system.
The social workers claimed the mother was not mentally well and took it upon themselves to drug her, operate on her, and then steal her baby.
If we followed social workers twisted logic it’s highly likely Jesus would have been snatched from Mary because of her claims of an immaculate conception.
The Telegraph’s Christopher Booker, along with brave MP, John Hemming, have exposed the sociopathic actions of Essex Council who are responsible for this vile travesty of justice.
According to Booker:
” Throughout all my years reporting on scores of chilling examples of what social workers are allowed to do behind the closed doors of our secret family courts, the case reported yesterday on the front page of the Daily Mail is not just the most disturbing of all.
It also illustrates how far our ‘child protection’ system has now gone horrendously off the rails. The facts are so shocking they beggar belief.
A pregnant Italian mother who was visiting Britain had her baby forcibly removed from her womb by British doctors on the orders of a secret court, before the child was handed to social workers.
This 35-year-old mother, who suffers from a bipolar condition, was visiting Britain for a two‑week training course with Ryanair at Stansted airport.
Preparing to return home to Italy, having successfully passed the course, she had a bipolar episode at the airport and became over-excitable when she thought she had mislaid the passports of her two daughters who were still in Italy. She contacted the police for help.
When they arrived, she was on the phone to her mother, so she handed one of the officers the receiver. The mother explained to the police about her daughter’s mental condition and said she had not been taking the medication and needed to calm her down.
The police then apparently contacted Essex social workers — as they are routinely instructed to do in such cases — and told the woman they were taking her to ‘a hospital to check that your baby is OK’.
On arrival, she was startled to find that it was a psychiatric hospital.
She protested that she wanted to return to her hotel, but was forcibly restrained, sectioned under the Mental Health Act and told she must remain in the psychiatric hospital.
What happened next, however, was truly astounding.
Having been held there for five weeks, pleading many times to be given permission to return to Italy, she was told one morning that she would not be allowed breakfast.
They would not explain why, and, again, she protested. She was then strapped down and drugged into a state of unconsciousness.
Waking up hours later, she found she was in a different hospital, and that while she had been unconscious, her baby had been removed by Caesarean section and handed over to social workers.
Only later did she learn that this extraordinary act had been sanctioned by a High Court judge, Mr Justice Mostyn, sitting in the secret Court of Protection, and that her baby daughter was to be sent for adoption. The mother was then deported back to Italy.
In the meantime, she resumed her medication (as I have found from talking to her, and another judge has confirmed, she is an intelligent, articulate woman who speaks excellent English) and launched into a legal battle for her daughter’s return, involving lawyers from three countries.
These include lawyers in Los Angeles, acting for the sister of the woman’s American husband, who is father of her oldest daughter and from whom she is amicably separated.
They agreed that if the baby could not return to its mother, at least she should be brought up by her wider family — as British law recommends — by being entrusted to the care of her very responsible American ‘step-aunt’.
But Essex ruled that this could not be allowed because she and the baby have no blood tie. The child must, therefore, be adopted by strangers.
Before I broke this extraordinary story on Sunday in my column in the Sunday Telegraph, I discussed it with John Hemming MP and the mother’s new British lawyer Brendan Fleming. Both of them have been fighting the abuses of our ‘child protection’ system for years, and both say that this case is, in their experience, ‘unprecedented’.
Indeed, what many people have observed about the case in the past two days is how strikingly it combines almost every element in what has made the corrupted state of that system one of the greatest scandals in Britain today.
For a start, there is the zeal of social workers to snatch so many children from their parents without proper justification.
Since the headlines in 2008 of the Baby P scandal — in which 17-month-old Peter Connelly died after suffering more than 50 injuries at home over an eight-month period, even though he was repeatedly seen by social services and NHS health professionals — the number of applications to take children into care has well more than doubled.
But there is now abundant evidence (and the Mail has played a valiant part in bringing this to light) that many thousands a year are being removed from their parents for no good reason at all.
Secondly, there is the readiness of the police to collaborate unquestioningly with the social workers — as in this case, where they were even prepared to tell the mother a lie to trick her into entering the psychiatric hospital.
Why, also, were the medical staff so ready to arrange for the baby to be removed prematurely from its mother’s womb and to conceal what was to be done to her?
Most shocking of all, however, is the way our courts have managed to hide away the workings of this ‘protection’ system behind such a wall of secrecy that the outside world cannot be allowed to know what it gets up to.
Earlier this year the Daily Mail was able to expose the horrifying case of Wanda Maddocks, jailed in secret by the Court of Protection for removing her father from a care home where he was being seriously mistreated, only because the old man had subsequently died.
In fact, it is precisely because judges have been allowed to wrap this whole system in a far greater blanket of secrecy than Parliament ever envisaged that so many horrible travesties of justice have been allowed to flourish unreported.
Few seem to be more aware of this than the man who earlier this year became head of our family courts, Lord Justice Munby.
Several times, Munby has gone out of his way to point out to his fellow judges that the only way to dispel the increasing cloud of scandal hanging over our family courts — and the behaviour of the social workers who can act only with their authority — is to expose them to what he has called ‘the glare of publicity’.
In guidelines he issued last summer, and in a landmark judgment he handed down more recently, Munby has urged that much of this veil of secrecy must be stripped away.
It is quite wrong, he says, that, simply in the name of protecting the identity of children, the outside world should not be allowed to know the names of the local authorities and even the social workers involved in cases such as these, let alone the names of the judges themselves.
Since the ending of the death penalty, he goes on, there is no graver issue on which a judge can be asked to pronounce than to decide whether a woman and her child should be torn irreparably and forever apart.
Yesterday came the startling news that Munby, as our most senior family judge, has summoned the social workers before him to explain their conduct in the case of the Italian mother.
If the story of what was done to her serves any useful purpose, it will be to bring home more forcefully than ever just how rotten this system has become and what terrible acts of inhumanity it too often wreaks on those children and parents who have become its helpless victims.
In that sense alone, it must be hoped, the bringing to light of this horrifying case — and Munby’s extraordinary intervention — may be a turning point in a scandal which puts our country tragically to shame.”
We do hope the police and courts are gearing themselves up for a swathe of filthy social workers to be finally brought to justice for their crimes.
After all the misery they’ve wreaked on innocent children and parents they most certainly deserve a long spell in prison.
The time has come for heads to bloody roll.
