Won't Someone Please Think Of The Children?

Or the nonces will get them:

A "disturbing gap" in the Government's proposed changes to the vetting scheme would give paedophiles "a golden opportunity of targeting innocent victims", the NSPCC has warned.

The reforms, announced earlier this month, were part of Government attempts to end a "13-year assault on hard-won British freedoms" and would see only those working most closely with children or vulnerable adults having to undergo a criminal records check, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said.
But the NSPCC said a loophole in the proposed legislation would give sex offenders access to children.
Under the proposals, a teacher who has been barred but not prosecuted for inappropriate behaviour could become an unpaid, supervised, voluntary worker in a school without any checks revealing the previous behaviour that led to them being barred, the leading children's charity said.
Best we suspect everyone just to be on the safe side.

More good news for Mr Glitter!

Accountants should be checked too - they have children and if a parent comes in to have tax done, there could be a flow on effect of paedophilia to their children too.

It should be pointed out that children consort with children. Yet their motives go unchecked. What next !

Scottie- Very droll, but he's probably less of a menace whilst being supervised than doing his own thing.

JH- Yes the peadophilia could seep into the tax returns and infect the kids.

Anon- Lock up the children, to protect the children!
