I was lying awake last night with this mulling through my mind .... I am not defending AW here, which I know we tend to do as stereotyping mother/abuse victim without knowing the facts. However, it is possible the family were isolating due to covid (this can be proven as can witness reports of them in Blackpool as to how LW was) and JC snapped. He seems a fairly fit man, strong, and may have been under the influence of something. AW might’ve been working out what she was going to do and in shock, or also under the influence of something. Yes, I myself have no idea why this didn’t involve 999, but maybe she wasn’t aware of what actually happened. However we don’t know what JC told her and in a state of shock and fear she might’ve gone along with the “plan”. I guess we will find out more in due course but I suspect in MOO that JC was an angry man. From AWs Facebook she does seem to have cared for the children - but we know social media isn’t always a true reflection.
