INSIDE STORY OF THE ORKNEY COVER-UP
AMAZING NEW BOOK REVEALS THE ANATOMY OF A WITCH-HUNT BEHIND ORKNEY CHILD ABUSE LIFTS
Orkney Social Workers have attempted a cover up of the mistakes of
their colleagues after institutionally abusing children from the Orkney
Satan Scandal. When independent experts discovered what had happened
they put their own interests before those of the children and conspired
These are just a sample of many sensational conclusions in the book
SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN , by Consultant Paediatrician Dr D. H. S. Reid.
It is set to rock British Social Work to its foundations.
Dr Reid's book corroborates, from inside the system, the conspiracy of
silence and thirst for power which ordinary folk have long-considered
endemic within social work. It gives a shockingly detailed blow-by-blow
account of the improper methods and vindictive misuse of power which
regularly destroys the legal and human rights of its victims and which
was used to terrible effect by social workers in Orkney.
Written by a professional with over 30 years experience of paediatric
care this book shows that no parents or children are safe from
victimisation by the Child Abuse Industry.
Despite propaganda to the contrary Dr Reid's book shows that there are
NO devices which can safeguard your human rights or those of your
children when you fall into the clutches of the Social Work Mafia. Dr Reid compares the rights of children and families in a
child abuse inquiry to that of a criminals' rights and finds Criminals
"The child is not allowed any right of silence. He is questioned
endlessly until he gives the desired answer. For 50 or 150
interrogations he may give the truth that there has been no child
abuse. This evidence may be concealed from the parents, from the lawyers of the
parents, from the court. Evidence favourable to the parents or others
may be withheld from them. Independent assessment by doctors
psychologists and other professionals may be made impossible. The
lawyer for the accused may be unable to interview or get information
from the witnesses for the Crown. He may be prevented from seeing those
But it is in the previously unpublished details and background to the
tragic and unnecessary Orkney Child Abuse Scandal that Dr Reid really
lays bare the faults in the Social Work System. Backing up his
claims and allegations with documentation and copious notes he pulls no
Dr Reid had professional input into the Cleveland Child Abuse Scandal.
He was asked to contribute in Orkney and produced an in-depth study of
the circumstances after accessing information which has not until now
been made public. His conclusions make astounding reading?
"The parents in Orkney are wholly innocent....Even if the accusations
had been correct, the [dawn] raids should not have happened "
"I am the only consultant paediatrician as far as I know, who
has interviewed the doctors on South Ronaldsay and seen parents
and children...What did I find? Not one symptom or sign of child
abuse amongst the nine children....accusations of child abuse
are completely false .....There is no medical evidence that the
three W children were sexually abused."
Social Worker's justification for action in Orkney came from the
testimony ( during disclosure questioning) of child O.W. who gave
evidence against other children who were later lifted. Dr Reid points out that that girl (OW) was examined by two psychologists
and one psychiatrist and has been pronounced Psychotic by all three.
The day before her sixteenth birthday OW was taken into care by Social
Workers for 'disclosures to continue. At age sixteen this would have
Dr Reid does not value the statements obtained by those Orkney social
workers "...confessions made by the W children or by any of the nine
children removed on the dawn raid on 27th February 1991 were false" He shows how the suspicions of satanic ritual
abuse in Orkney began during June 1989 (a couple of weeks before the
despicable Cook Report special which imported the hysteria into Britain
from the U.S.A. and co-inciding with the campaign launched by the
N.S.P.C.C. to highlight the 'dangers' of Satanic Abuse).
He goes on to infer that a purposeful confusion has been used to
obscure the rights of parents and children. "Social Workers are allowed
in the Clyde Inquiry to say what they like about the W children.
Nobody, including Mrs W, on the other side of the argument, is allowed
to refute this so-called evidence.." Dr Reid Criticises the Clyde
Inquiry for overlooking important evidence and is not confident that it will provide a definitive solution.
Perhaps the most heart-rending information which Reid presents is that
provided by Dr Boyle's series of interviews of the children during
August 1991. One child said:
" nothing happened between J and
me, the Social Workers lied, I didn't know what I was saying to
them." In another interview child QW said "..Social workers say
they [perpetrators] hurt me, they didn't, if they did I'd tell".
When asked why the social workers would make up stories she replied
"how should I know?"
The evidence provided in this book DEMANDS an urgent countrywide
overhaul of the Social Services into a grass-roots caring system which
actually takes pressure OFF families under stress, instead of
victimising them. The increasing institutional abuse of small children
and innocent parents is nothing less than a national scandal.
SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN should be read by parents and professionals
for if Orkney has proved anything, it is that every family is
susceptible to victimisation by the present system. British Social Work
MUST change and Dr Reid's innovative and commonsensical book bypasses
the stock Child Abuse Industry excuses about limited resources showing
clearly how easily and cheaply a more humane system could be achieved.
As a society we ignore Dr Reid's views at our peril.
