Sharon Shoesmith has lost her High Court battle against her dismissal following the death of Baby P.The former director of children’s services in Haringey was fired over the scandal. The toddler suffered 50 injuries inflicted by his mother, her boyfriend and a lodger over eight months and died despite 60 visits from social workers, health visitors and police officers.
Ms Shoesmith was sacked from her £130,000 a year job by Ed Balls, the Children's Secretary, in December 2008 after inspectors delivered a damning report into Haringey children’s services. She had sought a judicial review of the decision to sack her on the grounds that it had been unfair.
I would think so too. THE BASTARD IS LUCKY SHE'S NOT IN JAIL!
