Polly's right - again

Sometimes it is very difficult to argue with Guardian grande dame Polly Toynbee.
'The same self-righteous press that today protests at checks and registers is often first to accuse ministers and officials of negligence whenever harm befalls a child. Just remember the frenzy of "Blood on their hands" hate they rained down on Haringey social workers involved in the Baby P tragedy.'
And she's right, it is a minor nuisance having to CRB checked but nothing more than that.
I feel happier knowing that the people whose kids I coach know I have been.
And I'd expect anyone who deals with my children to be vetted in the same way.
