Alison Taylor: Woman who blew the whistle on abuse breaks her silence - Profiles - People - The Independent: Alison Taylor, the former senior social worker who blew the whistle on abuse in children's homes in North Wales knows what it feels like to be vilified. When she handed a dossier of allegations to officials, detailing how those in charge were mistreating vulnerable children, she thought she might lose her job. She had no idea her actions would lead to the biggest inquiry into child sex abuse in Britain.
Ed: Interestingly she has an opinion on the McAlpine allegations - I mean, how does she know its "shoddy journalism"??? What convinced her, the recantation of Steve Messham? And furthermore, uses the same exact words as the media, etc Wow! Thats an easy world view to have!
