Letter: Your Say - THE mind-boggling, cocky, arrogant, holier-than-thou attitude of Haringey's.

Byline: Les Woolf

THE mind-boggling, cocky, arrogant, holier-than-thou attitude of Haringey's children's services boss Sharon Shoesmith is already enough for her not only to be sacked and replaced immediately, but also for the possibility of criminal neglect charges to be looked into.

The parents of the child presently known only as Baby P received over 60 official visits before he died.

All other injuries aside, he was shown to have suffered several broken ribs and a broken back. And the best Sharon Shoesmith could do was put out a cobbledtogether statement along with a graph to show how smart she is and how well her department was doing.

There can be no more excuses. Surely the game's now up for Haringey Council, not least its obscenely mis-managed Children's Services Department? Heads should roll.
