Friday Review: The ecstacy and the agony
A couple of things to end the week:
Children and Families Act 2014 yesterday was greeted with an ecstatic avalanche of news stories, press releases and tweets from both the Department for Education and the Ministry of Justice. The powers that be are clearly pleased with themselves, although when I saw this particular item on Twitter:
New law passed today will help put children at the heart of the family justice system and reduce delays #familyjustice...I couldn't help wondering whether the 'new law' (26 weeks, 'shared parenting' presumption) will do more to help the government look like it is actually doing something, rather than to help children.

Have a good weekend.
