ABSTRACT
BY what perverted notion of justice can Sharon Shoesmith be entitled to a penny of public money - let alone the monstrous £700,000 package she is believed to have been awarded in a secret settlement? As head of children's services at Haringey Council, this is the woman who presided over a notorious child abuse scandal, when her chaotic department failed to prevent the torture and killing of 17-month-old Peter Connelly.
