Leaving your child in the boozer
« on: June 12, 2012, 07:49:36 PM »

If this situation had happened to anyone else, Social Services would be breathing down their necks, or the Police might be charging them with Neglect,....but if you are the Prime Minister and his missus,along with their bodyguards,and their bodyguards,.......well! its a different story,........"They were Forgetful".....

Not right about What?????
this is from Reuters,
LONDON -- It's every parent's nightmare: To get home from an event and realize that a child is missing. But it can turn out to be a political minefield as well if you happen to be the prime minister.

British Prime Minister David Cameron's office confirmed Monday that he accidentally left his 8-year-old daughter Nancy in a country pub after a Sunday afternoon visit.

The incident sparked a debate in Britain about Cameron's parenting and comes only a few weeks after the government set up a program to give parents of young children classes in how to raise them,...now is where I would normally say, Nah Nah Ni Nah,but maybe I,ll just sit here with a smug grin on my moosh!!!!

I think the issue is that child services wouldn't be all over parents for once leaving there child somewhere, and having to go back and get them, stuff happens, it's easy to think someone else has got something, only to later find they thought you had it... TBH good on them for just admitting it.

Apparently this all happened last April.
So why bring it up now?
But what got through to me was the way the Police developed "sloping shoulders" and declared that the "protection team" only looked after the PM and so it wasn't their fault. I find that hard to believe, frankly.
Perhaps the rozzers had thrown more down their necks than the Camerons. Nothing would surprise me these days about the behaviour of our "police". BY.

It does,nt really matter,"who thought who had,the child, the point is,children have been abducted in the blink of an eye, in the past,...a child should never be out of sight of its parents,in a public place,..has past events taught them nothing,

It sounds like a balls up and not deliberate by any sense, despite my hatred and contempt for the man.

However news reports mention that he traveled separately with bodyguards (despite the fact when he became PM, he said that he wouldn't squander the country's money and spend it on protection) and so a mix up seems to be fair enough.

Not anything like the mc'cans leaving their kids for hours on end while they wine and dine is it.

Not very often I defend anything to do with the government but this I think has be taken out of proportion by the press. Im sure the PM's very embarrassed by the whole thing and rightly so.

For goodness sake, it was an honest mistake >>:-( If it had been anyone else other than David Cameron and his wife no one would have even noticed but, typical of the low life press, they had to make a big thing of it. Get over it <*<

My parents would leave me anywhere. I always found my way back. One term while away at school they moved house! Initiative testing they called it.

And if you can't find your way back, it's called Alzhimers. (Keep testing SWTSMBO)  {-)

   Strange how the "Free" press are clutching at anything to smear the politicians with?  Wonder if the "Enquirey" has anything to do with it.

They only did what probably thousands of parents have done - made a mistake.

We left our new baby son in Tesco's in a buggy on the soap powder aisle - we got about four aisles away.
Panicked and ran back only to find him fast asleep -  after that we carried him around shops.

Now 25 years later I'm still carrying him around, and he's still mostly asleep  <*<  usually I can end a post on a joke but <:( <:( <:(
