"Best child protection in the world"

According to the BBC, academics at Kingston University (presumably Kingston-on-Thames, not Kingston on Hull or Kingston, Jamaica) reckon that England has one of the most successful child protection systems in the world.  Presumably the exclusion of Wales was deliberate, as I cannot think of a local authority round here which has a totally trustworthy children's service. But it appears that wherever that most successful system in England is, it is not in Birmingham.

Will the new Labour administration voted in yesterday do any better? The record of Labour in this area is not promising.
