Tragic but you have to ask why a 5-year old was in the passenger seat and injured. At that age the use of suitable restraints and booster seat should ensure maximum protection.

What a stupid comment, the child was in a passenger seat, could have been the front or the back. A slight head injury could have been caused by any number of things including broken glass, a sat nave pinging off the windscreen etc etc.

Really silly post. Using a booster and seatbelt doesn't make the child immune to anything happening. Just hopefully keeps them safer than they would have been.
Back seats are passenger seats too, all seats which are not the driver seat are passenger seats. What is the writers point exactly?

It's a disaster. A mark of shame on the CV of anyone starting out in life. Look out how many of these effete Tory ponces send their own kids to the local x-factor 'fame academy'. Grammar school places for all. To suggest otherwise just shows you must be directly financially benefitting from this scam.
