PERFIDIOUS ALBION: the UK’s judiciary does not honour international treaties

When I googled for E.M.Forster’s Only connect Prose with Passion, I came across his quotation:

“The Germans are called brutal, the Spanish cruel, the Americans superficial, and so on; but we are perfide Albion, the island of hypocrites, the people who have built up an Empire with a Bible in one hand, a pistol in the other, and financial concessions in both pockets. Is the charge true? I think it is.”

It’s this hypocrisy that gets to me. The “in the interest of the child” that ignores

  • the traumatisation every separation causes a child
  • the pain afflicted on children, parents, families
  • the cruelty committed with ‘legitimacy’. More

A sigh of relief seemed to have gone across the UK today – thanks to this announcement by the Australian PM:

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has issued an apology to people affected by Australia’s forced adoption policy between the 1950s and 1970s.

Tens of thousands of babies of unmarried, mostly teenage mothers, were thought to have been taken by the state and given to childless married couples.

Many women said they were coerced into signing away their children.

… practices that were unethical, dishonest and in many cases illegal.

The report was based on submissions by hundreds of women.

In its way of reporting the good news, the excellent blog Researching Reform points out that Australia has always been something of a leading light! More

FIRST SLOVAKIA, then France and Belgium on TV: outrage at the Kingdom’s “lost children” as ‘scandalous injustice’

4 Comments

It’s up to grandmothers to right the wrong-doings of younger people who are ‘just doing their job’. In the case of the two Slovak boys who were supposed to be adopted, she organised demos outside the UK Embassy in Bratislava which TV and press took up in Slovakia.

In France, CanalPlus showed a special documentary: England: the Kingdom of the Lost Children illustrating the plight of a number of families.

Now, Belgium TV has aired the story thanks to Nigel Cooper who is a Belgian resident since he came to work there as a NATO Security Specialist. However, he has since been banned from the UK as he explains in this video. His story was on Belgian news in June 2012, starting at 21:15 of this video. The program points out:

  • the secrecy surrounding family courts including the ban of media reporting
  • the claim that the father consented to what he calls abduction
  • John Hemming MP NOT having confidence in the judgements of Social Services: “they make a lot of mistakes.”

Reproducing footage of the French film, these Belgian videos are in support of his daughter – which is of course representative of many, many other ‘cases’: aired on 12th March 2013

This remarkable comment was written in response to this blog post on Punishment without Crime.

It appears that once they find they get shielded by closing ranks and keeping secrets and are able to use our taxpayers money to threaten and pressurize people into silence  they continue to get away with it. Each of us must keep repeating this concern. Stop them stealing our legal controls. The law is there and it is ours, our children have rights and we as parents have rights under the law. We must rescue our legal rights and use them against those who abuse human rights.

If we each wrote to our MP [www.WriteToThem.com] in the standard form, either email or letter I am sending:

Once again: a tragic story behind a courageous victim turned starfighter

  • Nigel Cooper whose daughter Bailie Kate Cooper wants to live with him but…
  • Sunderland Social Services interfered AGAINST the interest of the child
  • the father doesn’t mince his words when he speaks of the UK stealing children
  • he obtained a major judgement from Belgium that he hopes will help not only him and his daughter, but the many other victims of institutionalised child snatching, as we described in our letter to the Attorney General
  • over 2 years, he collected 15,358 emails and documents that have fingerprinted the UK stealing children.

Normally, we refer to the following legal frameworks

The Belgian judgement that Nigel Cooper obtained is here (with my emphasis and highlights) and adds

Great Britain: The Stolen Children

Florence Bellone is a Belgian journalist who has investigated child snatching in the UK for a considerable time. As a result, she has

  1. written to the Education Select Committee: The Child Protection System in England
  2. won a Special Radio Prize for Great Britain: The Stolen Children.

The Grand Jury distinguished the report for its investigative merit in highlighting a human rights issue occurring in a highly-developed European Member State. The piece was characterised as ‘a technically impressive, investigative report into shocking and relatively unknown human rights violations’.

The Education Select Committee has released a new invitation for written evidence to be submitted by 23 January 2012. It must address at least one of three bullet points:

  • The impact of neglect and the long term consequences of a delay in intervention where there is evidence of neglect;
  • Older young people (especially those aged 15 to 19) and child protection;
  • Thresholds for intervention, for taking children into care and for adoption.

My own contribution to the Committee is in draft form here.

What a relief to see the mainstream media cottoning on to what, so far, only Christopher Booker reported in The Telegraph:

In his witness statements, John Hemming MP did refer to the fact that the Nigerian Parliament got involved in the Musa case, but they have not been able to prevent the Musas from being imprisone on 28th November.
With a view to demonstrating their innocence, here is a family album of phtotos that also includes references to

You can’t believe it unless it happens to you or someone you know:

Since then I put this page together and found these stories by Christopher Booker at the Telegraph:

John Hemming MP is doing his best to tackle the issue in Parliament:
