Reliant Social Work
The system keeps limping along – its feet bearing the self-inflicted gunshot wounds of trigger-happy policymakers. These are sometimes of the elected variety, but of infinitely more concern, in my view, are the unelected, charged with making policy by Friday. Wise civil servants urge caution. The danger comes from those who believe strongly in their own wisdom and that they alone can drive social work down the royal road. They promised us a safe 4×4 in which to navigate a primrose path, but we’ve ended up down a muddy track in a Reliant Robin. Let’s get out and walk.
Interesting imagery if bit unfair to the Reliant Robin but exactly who does Sue mean by the “unelected” who are “charged with making policy by Friday”?
