A quick scan of the care inquiry report released today. Of course it will take time to analyse the detail, unpick the cautious language in places and spot the omissions. One or two online comments describe it as the most damning report they have seen. I wouldn't go that far, least not until I've read it thoroughly. But for today, it does one important job. In the fight between on the one hand victims, survivors and campaigners and on the other the powerful, the conflicted, the deceiving, and those who tried to avoid having an inquiry at all , it is the former who are clearly vindicated.
So here are a few pertinent clips that stood out to me.
On Skinner and Jouault
On political structure. Clothier and Carswell
On past failures
A couple of bits from others.
