Sex case minister will keep job (but then did anyone think that she’ll be given leave to remain absent permanently to be closer to her large family?)


Education Secretary Ruth Kelly had been under pressure to name the minister who made the decision after she admitted a "small number" of sex offenders had been cleared to work in English schools.

Police caution: Given to people admitting minor offences – placed on sex offenders’ register but not automatically barred from schools
Conviction: Defendant sentenced in court – goes on sex offenders’ register and put automatically on education blacklist, List 99

Meanwhile, it emerged on Friday that a sex offender had been allowed to work as a teacher at schools in South Tyneside and Co Durham from 2003 to 2005.













Comment: The question is – would Labour have tolerated such a negligent action from any one of the opposition parties?
