PoliticsHome reports that the government is to support families of missing children and links to a BBC report that the government is being urged to improve support for the "heartbroken" families of people who go missing. According to the BBC report the inquiry is being organised by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Runaway and Missing Children and Adults.
For those with missing relatives, such as the three women mentioned in the BBC report, the anguish of not knowing the fate of loved ones must be unbearable, although it must be pointed out that some people do 'disappear' by choice for a variety of reasons.
Nowhere is there mention of children that 'go missing' as a result of actions taken by Social Services, as mentioned in this article by Christopher Booker - and it is worth reading the last three 'related' articles.
However, should not the plight of those suffering as a result of draconian decisions taken by unanswerable bodies not also be a matter of concern? In this regard it would seem that our elected representatives choose to emulate the first two virtues of the three wise monkeys - I mention the first two only as they most certainly do not qualify for the last!
