Let’s get this straight – the woman who refused to explain why she quit as chair of the inquiry into historical child sex abuse wants to criticise it now?
Is she not aware that she’s been in charge of it for the last year and a half?
And, when she was signing the contract to run it, did she never realise it was an inquiry into historical child sex abuse?
So now it seems she wants to forget all the old cases and abandon all the victims.
What does this look like, to you? Another attempt to get us to let the abusers off?
The independent inquiry into child sex abuse is too big, bureaucratic and lacking in adequate systems, its former chairwoman has said.
Dame Lowell Goddard, who resigned last month, said in a memo to MPs that the inquiry needed overhauling.
She said the inquiry should focus less on the past and more on current standards of child protection.
New chairwoman Alexis Jay said its terms of reference would remain but an internal review of it would be held.
