The Land that Forgot Children
Is Australia the Land that Forgot that it is all about the Children and their safety, then it is about logic and reason, the truth, the facts, the reality and it really is about fairness, equality, belonging, community, rules of evidence, morals, ethics and commonsense but it is not.
