Khyra SCR: Remember who is responsible

The serious case review into the death of Khyra Ishaq has been published today. It found that the death was preventable. No doubt in the coming days there will be much made in some quarters of the failings of the agencies that dealt with the case, and it is of course quite right that lessons should be learned. However, let it not be forgotten who is responsible for the death: Khyra's mother and her partner, not social services or any other agency involved.
