Today the Guardian published a piece I wrote about the proposed Clare’s Law. You can read it here: Why Clare’s Law won’t prevent domestic violence 

You might also like to read a rather more eloquent discussion of the same topic by Libby Brooks, also in the Guardian: ‘Clare’s law’ offers nothing but empty empowerment 

Still haven’t managed to write Part 2 of my Martin Narey Adoption Report post. I haven’t forgotten. But it’s been impossible to squeeze it in this week. And it looks like I will be spending my birthday weekend with a mountain of lever arch files, so don’t expect it immediately.
