See thisislondon.co.uk/lite t HE placing of a foster child with relatives of airline bomb plotter Abdulla Ahmed Ali is not Haringey councils fault. The c ou nc i l m ay h ave m ade mistakes in the past, such as with abused Baby P, but it is blameless in this latest case. It would have been impossible for the council to foresee any terrorist link as these people had never committed a terrorist crime. The staff are not fortune-tellers. Miguel V, London A few questions. Was the child in this case harmed? No. Was the child removed from the house as soon as the terrorist was arrested? Yes. Could social workers at Haringey have done anything differ- ently, no matter how bad it might seem in simple terms? No. Liberal and Proud, London COUNCIL workers were suppos- edly finding it difficult to house the child because Muslim children can only be placed with families of the same faith. Why? Isnt this religious discrimination? I thought this wasnt allowed and i n t e g r a t i o n w a s t o b e encouraged? Ab, London NO-ONE at Haringey seems to know what they are doing and what the rules actually are. The power is in the hands of a few department heads and eve- rything falls through the gaps. Whatever happened to these sup- posed government intervention squads for failed councils? Hansel, London WE HAVE far too many ultra- politically correct staff working in this sector who are endangering the safety of our kids. Youngsters w h o a r e neglected by t he i r parents should be taken into state care from the earliest possible age. Hannah, Angel There should be a total clear out at Haringey council Alf, Kentish Town textpoll Q: Are you still watching your spending? OurlastresultShould assisted suicide be legal?
