I think it's getting proper coverage tomorrow, my mother told me about it as she's a mumsnetter. Riven is a mumsnetter who has a severely disabled daughter who needs 24 hour care. Riven talked to David Cameron (before he was PM) on a live chat about it, and he ended up going to her house to discuss how the nhs can improve respite services (DC's firstborn having had a similar condition). In the interim, DC became PM and did nothing to improve respite care. Today, Riven called the social services to ask them to take her daughter into care. Mumsnet went nuts about it, have made a facebook group, emailed the PM and twittered a lot. This is being picked up by the daily mail and the guardian tomorrow apparently - anyway. Join the group. Having done some one-to-one care for severely disabled children in a nursery, I'm glad this issue is going to get some attention.
