On this side of the road a whistleblower reporting abusers and the corrupt is rounded upon by both the local authority and SYP, especially when each are a part of the problem, effectively participating in the abuse by their actions or lack thereof, and for which brand reputation has primacy over protecting the abused, reinforcing the established institutionalised corruption.
