MP Mark Field has tabled an Early Day Motion which you can send to your MP to ask him/her to sign.
We could include a quick notes on the disproportionate nature of Badman's proposals - the use of the sledgehammer to crack a nut, the sledgehammer being the disproportionate level of intrusion and control, the loss of privacy in family life, the stress for families who are highly likely get nothing positive whatsoever from the intervention and who realise that they face the risk of over-cautious referrals to social services, the total disregard for the voice of the child, and the immense unconsidered costs of the whole pointless exercise.
We could suggest instead that the better way for the state to proceed would be to use a nutcracker, ie: the system of proportionate intervention which is pretty much how things stand right now. Contact us by letter, and if you receive a response that suggests that all is well, assume that it is, for you are highly likely to have heard about a family who actually do have problems.
