4.0 out of 5 stars Worried and Angry, 12 April 2010
This review is from: The Secret of Bryn Estyn: The Making of a Modern Witch Hunt (Paperback)
For those people who believe that most of what we're told is wrong, Richard Webster's painstaking analysis of recent child abuse cases provides ammunition a-plenty.
His work provokes equal measures of worry and anger.

If he is to be beleved, and I think he is, several lawyers and journalists, and a succession of others in public life, have failed to do their work with sufficient detachment or regard for actual evidence.

His forensic examination of events in North Wales has shown the Waterhouse Inquiry has hidden the truth, allowed liars to go unpunished, and started a witch hunt among care workers and in childrens' homes.

It is a very sorry and salutary tale, which curiously, a number of well regarded journalists seem unable to acknowledge.
