In his blog Neil Woollcott asserts that the opinions of bloggers like Lynne Featherstone and Costigan Quist are not putting the `Childrens’ authors` complaint regarding CRB into context. In his example he states that he can’t refuse to go through the physical procedures at the airport.
He later asserts that all that needs to happen is that name-match check needs to be done with the list 99.
There are problems with this:
First, bombs and terrorist activities on planes HAVE HAPPENED.
Finally, nowhere to my knowledge have there been any instances of child abuse happening when there are 30 children and other adults present, certainly not with childrens’ authors. That’s not saying it can’t happen – just that the instances of it happening are so infinitessimally small it’s hardly worth even thinking about. I’d like him to say exactly HOW it would happen anyway.
