Guilty or gullible?

Today’s conviction of Colin Blanchard (see link for article), the leader of a Paedophile ring, from Rochdale is a welcome relief to parents all over Britain today.

Blanchard managed to coerce four women from various locations around the country, to take pictures of children being abused and share them with him over the internet. Some of them worked in Childcare and had families of their own.

He was finally caught when a work colleague found indecent images on his email account.

Tonight, he begins an ‘indeterminate’ sentence in jail.

But what of the women who helped him?

Tracy Lyons, a mother-of-nine from Portsmouth; Angela Allen, a former prostitute from Nottingham; Tracy Dawber, a Southport care worker; and Vanessa George, a nursery worker from Plymouth.

Women who either had children of their own, or cared for others. Women who people trusted, women who weren’t supposed to abuse that trust.


In the past, many serial killers who targeted children had female accomplices:  Ian Brady & Myra Hindley, Fred and Rose West, Ian Huntley and Maxine Carr to name  but a few.

What makes a woman turn her back on natural, maternal, protective instincts and carry out abuse or even murder, just to please a man?

Are they as guilty as their male counterparts or are they just blinded by obsession and love?
