She said she was looking to take steps to make sure all sex offenders were barred for life from working with children.
WHAT ? It was up to HER to decide if this sex offender could have the job. SHE could have said NO. SHE could have protected children at that time. SHE decided it was perfectly fine for this sex offender to work with children. It was HER choice. SHE has only changed her mind because of the furore and if she was so damn convinced she had got it right then she should have stood her ground.
Ruth Kelly got it hugely wrong.
Ruth Kelly ignored the Police.
She should be sacked.
