Burying bad news: Church released child abuse report on same day Theresa May made PM

The Bishop of Rochester was accused of burying the report in Wednesday's news agenda
The independent review yesterday revealed how it became standard practice for girls at Kendall House children’s home in Gravesend Kent to be drugged, raped and physically abused for almost 20 years between 1967 and 1986.

Critics hit out at the Church for not delaying its publication, considering what happened at Westminster took over the world’s news agenda.

The review, ordered by the Bishop of Rochester, the Rt Rev James Longstaff, revealed how girls as young as 11 were habitually plied with strong anti-depressants, anti-psychotic drugs and sedatives, mostly without any medical assessment.

Any girl who resisted or did not react to the effects of the drugs were punished, which included being emotionally abused or locked in solitary confinement for days.

Others said they were raped after being placed in isolation.  (more...)
