    Grandfather on child abuse charges

    Not sure if anyone has heard this story, I heard a snippet on the radio today that a grandfather has been charged with abuse for making his overweight grandchildren walk 30km with no food or water. Just wondered if anyone heard what happened.
  4. Australian state apologises for child abuse The Aborigines had an extremely hard time but so did thousands of children sent to Australia from all over the world The first 100 children – ‘vagrants’ – were despatched from the London area to Virginia in the Americas in 1618, their passage arranged by the City Fathers, while the last nine children were flown to Australia in 1967 under the auspices of Barnardo’s. It follows that the origins of child migration were linked to Britain’s acquisition of an empire in North America during the early seventeenth century. In the wild, untamed, thinly-populated continent, there was an insatiable demand for men and women to populate and exploit the new territories. The demand was so great, and the perils of the sea journey and the initial pioneering so desperate, that those whom it was convenient for England to send abroad – the convicted felons, the parish poor and abandoned children were considered suitable and many were despatched.
