Supreme Court

“The law of vicarious liability is on the move” proclaimed Lord Phillips in the last judgment he delivered as President of the Supreme Court: Various Claimants v Catholic Child Welfare Society [2012] UKSC 56, (“the Christian Brothers case”). In a judgment recently handed down by the Supreme Court in the case of Armes (Appellant) v Nottinghamshire County Council (Respondent) [2017] UKSC 60, His Lordship has been proved correct.

    Damn right they shoukd be liable!!!!!! Those poor children for one reason or another are placed with those foster carers because local authorities deem them safe for the children. Most of those children would be safe enough kept within the family circle

    My 2 grandsons were forcibly removed from their mothers care and not even given a fair chance to stay with the birth family ….. Local authorities were in too much of a rush to have them forcibly adopted and never to see their rightful family until their adopters feel the time is right….. HOW DO WE KNOW THEY ARE BEING CARED FOR APPROPRIATELY!!!!!!!

  3. Absolutely!
    Only morally inept people allow the abuse of children.
    It’s a good start to weeding out these discussing, lazy hedonists that are dictating and controlling the public interests, all the while, hurting children, families and communities.
    Throw the book at them!
