The next time you call a tradesperson, beware.
He/she may in fact be a spy, paid for by the council to inform about suspected child abuse.
I kid you not!
Plumbers and electricians in Lincoln could soon be asked to spot signs of child abuse while at work.
All 800 Lincoln City Council employees are to receive training to help them detect signs of abuse. Staff who spot signs of abuse while out on day-to-day jobs will be asked to report their concerns to the council.
Simon Walters, head of corporate review and development, said:
“It’s about young people who may be suffering from neglect and abuse – that’s our primary goal. We need to ensure our staff are trained to recognise child neglect and abuse. What this proposal makes very clear is that all public bodies have a duty under the Children’s Act to take the responsibility to spot signs of child abuse.”
Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether this ‘Nanny Council’s’ primary goal is to spy on it’s citizens and it will use every means at it’s disposal to do so.
This is another step towards dictatorship.
