RESTORING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE in Police and Judiciary? Only with the aid of Experienced Investigators!

14 02 05 EU Anti-CorruptionEnough is enough! People see through the spin, charades and farcical fob-offs.

They are taking their power back:

  • www.ExposedPolice.com publishes News, Corruption and Misconduct
  • www.upsd.co.uk – the unProfessional Standards Department of West Yorkshire Police is a group of experienced investigators who have come together to fight police incompetence, misconduct or criminality that lead to miscarriages of justice.

By way of example, here’s a copy of an email to all MPs:

Commission unveils first EU Anti-Corruption Report

For each of these areas, the Report suggests solutions, based on a careful assessment of each Member State. They include:

  • better accountability and integrity standards;
  • control mechanisms in public authorities;
  • dealing with conflicts of interests by officials;
  • how to address corruption at local level and in state-owned companies
  • the effectiveness of courts and police, and protection mechanisms for whistleblowers;
  • limiting risks of bribery in foreign countries, and making lobbying more transparent;
  • And – developing innovative e-tools to enhance transparency.

WHY BRITAIN is no longer safe: in ‘link language’ and bullet points

21 Comments

The Independent has been there:

but also the Guardian:

In my experience of shifting emphasis from organising meetings at Westminster to web publishing, here’s why Britain is no longer safe – in ‘link language’ and bullet points:

  1. Starting with the Sudeley Bankruptcy and its Contemporary Significance: fraudulent bankruptcies, home repossessions and false imprisonments
  2. Punishment without Crime – Bereavement without Death – with over 36,300 visits since April 2012.

THREE POSITIVE Judgements by Sir James Munby and 4,000 Financial Ombudsmen (and -women)

13 10 25 Jail Social WorkersIt is too soon to sing Hallelujah, but here are two stories in one week that make our hearts sing and our hands applaud Sir James Munby:

  1. Jail social workers who take children without telling parents why, says Britain’s top family judge
    * Sir James Munby attacked workers in Bristol who didn’t explain themselves
    * They did not tell a couple why their two children were being taken from them
    * They breach a court order in doing so – which could carry a jail term in future
  2. MP [John Hemming of course] condemns secret justice
    * Strange that no other paper has reported this yet…
  3. Courts should adapt to the realities of the internet, particularly social media
    * I just wish that this judgement was taken on board by every judge in the country!

On the other end of the spectrum of white collar crimes, I met last night two of the 4,000 Financial Ombudsmen who have been set up by the financial industry as alternatives to court – and they are free of charge! Once you’re in court, they don’t help, it seems. Also, when cases are too big, i.e. worth more than £100,000. Well, they do have to protect themselves, don’t they, these brethren. A seasoned fighter tells me about the ‘conflicts of interest’ of senior board members…

Apparently, they grew exponentially over the last two years AND they get financial institutions to pay compensation! They also uphold far more complaints than they refuse. So give them a chance, I’d say!

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were as many Legal Ombudsmen (and -women) around – free of charge – instead of lawyers riding the Legal Aid train???

HELPLESS and Powerless? Web bullets for courageous hearts and minds

Length of stay in U.S. foster care

Yes, seeing behind the motivations of bad news and seeing through the intentions of bad institutions makes us feel helpless and powerless. Until somebody comes along and lifts your spirit again and you feel less alone, less ‘ashamed and impotent’ as commentator obesiverights.

My ‘position statement’ this morning:

the financial critique is rolling as the cause of all evil: 

victims as the sad effects are coming together:

  • when victims become fighters as Litigants in Person (LiPs), Help for LiPs is growing, too;

child snatching as the most heinous of white collar crimes:

survivors of sexual abuse are coming out:

  • at least some victims turned survivors come out thanks to Twitter, Facebook and blogs

#paedobritain gets to the hearts, minds and souls of people:

And this heart wrenching true story:

Cry for Britain’s stolen children
Posted: 20 Apr 2013 04:09 AM PDT

Dear Tap,

I cannot put into words the despair that I feel in reading the letter from this young girl and looking at the pictures of all the stolen children in the picture gallery.

FAIR and JUST? On the Rule of Law and the Quality of its Enforcement

4 Comments

The law is only as good
Victims Unite has brought a few starfighters together who have studied the law, helped as McKenzie Friends and challenged antiquated rules such as the ban on recording court proceedings.

Here is the online petition Abolish the Ban on Recording Court Proceedings and here is a first collection of comments by signers.

Here are a few conclusions by victims who stand up for themselves:

UK Police Personnel should have Criminal Records Bureau Checks - an online petition that publishes a list of charged or convicted Prison, Police and Court Personnel (ca 1274)

The Law is only as good as the integrity of those entrusted to administrate it. – Maurice Kirk

A law breaker cannot also be a law enforcer. – Caul Grant

‘The Law’ in Britain (The Police & the Courts), deliberately deny me the protection of the law, & deliberately block me from seeking a remedy in the courts for crimes & other wrongs committed against me. That being so, & it IS fact, then that same ‘Law’ CANNOT be used to punish me. Indeed, both Police & Courts have themselves committed serious crimes against me, & do so with impunity.

Or in short:

  • LAW ONE is to Protect the Powerful.
  • LAW TWO is to Oppress those who are Not.
  • LAW THREE is to destroy anyone who dares to protest. – Norman Scarth

CHANGING the SYSTEM means changing the culture, ethics, attitudes, dishonesty, privilege and tribalism of Britain

13 01 13 John WardThis morning I am still somewhat recovering from yesterday’s meeting. Before turning its outcomes into activity, I just copy what John Ward, publisher of the very popular The Slog wrote:

I was in a House of Commons committee room for much of yesterday, and you’ll all be relieved to know that there is no longer any water for sessions there. Given yesterday’s news (not really news, just the first time it’s been admitted) that our banks are nowhere near the target of refilled balance sheets, I suppose the Commons water was bound to go in the end.

But was there any other evidence to hand in the Palace of Westminster that our doom is at hand? Not really: I met and spoke with two MPs – diligent and concerned, don’t doubt it – but neither of them seemed that aware of how dysfunctionally unpopular the political class is across Europe.

More remarkable were the ordinary people in the room grappling with serious legal, constitutional, police and power-abuse issues. Mums imprisoned spitefully, armed police raiding family homes, people being declared in need of mental assessment for arguing with social workers, businesses being fraudulently declared insolvent, judges exceeding their powers while ignoring evidence. And volunteer intermediaries dedicated to helping those stuck in a Kafkaesque world in which the law says one thing but the authorities do another.

“It’s the system,” people kept saying, “We must change the system”. I don’t agree, I’m afraid. You have to change the culture, ethics, attitudes, dishonesty, privilege, and inflexibly dated tribalism of Britain. Just making the system tougher without doing that will simply mean more new laws – and more cynical new ways of getting round them.

David Cameron’s and Nick Clegg’s texts could be disclosed under FOI – an article in The Telegraph to which victum turned starfighter and McKenzie Friend Patrick Cullinane has responded very explicitly and extensively.

He writes “If I get the TOP vote, The Telegraph will do an article on the contents of my comment.  Now help YOURSELF by RECOMMENDING my comment, and get your family and friends to do likewise. Yours with gratitude, Patrick Cullinane.”

Here’s his comment:

400 People demonstrate outside the UK Embassy in Bratislava (Slovakia)

18 Comments

 

Protest outside UK Embassy for Martin and Samuel BoorHere it is:  paper planes flying for Martin and Samuel, the two boys taken by UK Social Services with 3 police cars, from the Lutheran Pastor of the family 2 years ago – on the 5 o’clock news of TV Slovakia, starting at 3:56 until 7:58.

A protest before the UK Embassy – with some 400 people and the following English placards:

  • STOP legal kidnappers
  • BRITAIN thief of children
  • Freedom for (Vladimir) Boor’s Family
  • UK our model???
  • Kids to Mothers
  • Justice for Decent Mom

Echoing the remarkable Italian film about a father and son, longing for his mother in a concentration camp, protesters chant Life is Beautiful.

And a Slovakian paper published that the Court case will be re-opened. The bottom of the page refers to a Slovak family whose 5 children were taken… Praised be the web that offers translation!

Here it is on Facebook: the mother with her sons…

Police State Britain: the Law, its Administration and its Enforcement

54 Comments

What do They Know is a marvellous site for making requests according to the Freedom of Information Act.

This list of poignant questions was answered by the City of London Police and gave rise to the following comments by WWII Veteran and Human Rights connaisseur Norman Scarth:

In the link above, the City Of London Police give a link to an announcement from the Attorney General’s Office, in which they mention ‘Civil Restraint Orders’.  These were brought in under Lord Woolf’s Civil Procedures Rules.  This shows how Woolf’s ‘Reforms’(?), far from ‘simplifying the law’ & giving people ‘ACCESS to JUSTICE’, were really designed to make Britain more of a Police State, giving MORE ways to obstruct victims of State Crime from seeking a remedy in the courts.

Great Britain: The Stolen Children

10 Comments

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.
