  1. Not surprised…. Portsmouth Family Court probably dealt with this case. Hampshire County Council Children's Social Services can not be trusted. The entire Family Court System care industry is a child taking factory to feed the Agency Private Care Fats cats…. and promote careerist dubious social workers. The countries children are not safe once SW's get involved in their lives.
