SUICIDE as the most promising option? Crucified for doing the right thing!



ATOS PROTEST BY ECAP (Photo credit: Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty)

First, I got this 18-page long collection of press coverage regarding suicides due to ATOS and benefit cuts – from a courageous whistleblower, these wonderful people who get crucified for doing the right thing. See Whistleblowers UK – a coalition to support all those standing up to wrongdoing and corruption in the workplace – in the Care Home, Defence, Police, NHS, Banking.

THE PLANE LANDED: the 2 Slovak boys are back after 920 days in ‘captivity’


13 01 01 Slovak KidsThe plane landed: this is the translated title in a Slovak paper of the story that is typical for institutionalised child snatching aka State Stealing Children or State Kidnapping.

However, in an unprecedented way, this story ended with the return of the children – mainly due to the involvement of the Slovak government. Not just the Embassy here in London. That was not enough:

That could NOT quite be ignored by the Court of Appeal and the return of the boys was promised before 4th January.

Today, on the first day of the New Year, the plane landed in Bratislava!

On 4th January, Christopher Booker told the story in the second part of his weekly column in The Telegraph: Free at last – a Slovak Family Happily Reunited.


Child Snatching is one of Seven Deadly Syndromes and Seven Media Cover-Ups


It is not easy to make sense out of shocking stories that question everything we are made to believe. But thinking our own thoughts and following our own feelings is part of learning to be alive as a free spirit and free-standing individual.

Here is Light Entertainment – Andrew O’Hagan writes about child abuse and the British public – an eye opener into the paedo culture at the BBC – for the uninitiated reader.

Why is British light entertainment so often based on the sexualisation of people too young to cope? And why is it that we have a press so keen to feed off it? Is it to cover the fact, via some kind of willed outrage, that the culture itself is largely paedophile in its commercial and entertainment excitements?

Many victims have become starfighters and McKenzie Friends, rescuers who are helping victims. But Hillsborough and Savile are helping to identify the perpetrators as part of seven deadly syndromes and seven media cover-ups.

Here is an Executive Summary and here are the seven syndromes – also exposed on Justice Denied – in an even more shocking way, I think:

1. Secret Societies: The Private Lives of Public People – as Freemasons and other secret societies where secrets are used to blackmail members who are required to protect each other – at no matter what cost.
2. Mainstream Media Cover-Ups: Strategies for Gagging, Controlling and generally Dumbing Down – so that online publications have become a necessary expression of ‘public interest’
3. Crimes against Children and Families: Paedophilia, Child Snatching and Premature Sexualisation – the tip of the iceberg of white collar crimes, using falsified official documents, secret family courts and the most farcical attempts to appear ‘lawful’
Reporting of Fraud 4. Reporting Fraud and White Collar Crimes: Public Services as Perpetrators and Non-Investigators – when employers are raking in money, while employees are ‘just doing their job’ – often with kickbacks
Enforcement of Bank of England Act 1694 5. The Illegality of Usury and Wars: How Successive Governments Ignore National Law and International Treaties – illustrating how institutions are used as shells and firewalls, while their employees do not deliver the institutions’ purpose
6. Policing: Who Guards the Guards? Royal Charters are a key legal mechanism to protect the Police as one of many institutions
7. CONTEST: How the Counter-Terrorism Strategies Drive Miscarriages of Justice – in the follow-up of 9/11 and 7/7 everybody on the net knows, but the Establishment ‘knows better’…

“Kids in Crisis”: an Anatomy of cover-ups by a scandal silenced sinced 1998


Guardian / Front page - 19 February 2011

Guardian / Front page – 19 February 2011 (Photo credit: *spo0ky*)

Here is the story of a former Director of Social Services who had become a whistleblower, but was gagged to remain silent: Silencing a scandal – the story of Colin Smart – published by The Guardian in April 1998:

“It is debatable,” he wrote, “whether the majority of children now in residential care have been more harmed by the circumstances which brought them into the system, or by their time with social services.”

It’s official: British corruption is more common than recognised, report warns


Here’s the article in The Telegraph and here’s the original report by Transparency International, the global coalition against corruption. Its 2-year study Money, Politics, Power: Corruption Risks in Europe makes nine headline recommendations for the UK and can be read online here.

The most pertinent ones I can subscribe to from my observation of victims of white collar crimes:

  1. in the Judiciary corruption is ‘very strong’ and the worst of all institutions analysed
  2.  given the links between overseas corruption and corruption with the uK, the role of the Government’s Anti-Corruption Champion (ACC) should be extended to cover corruption within the UK. The ACC should provide an annual report to Parliament
  3. a high-level response is needed to tackle corruption more effectively
  4. politicians, government, business and institutions throughout the UK urgently need to understand and accept that corruption is a problem in key sectors
  5. NHS, social housing and prison service are mentioned specifically, besides sports!


Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts… especially in family courts


“Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts…” is the slogan for the 2-week demo outside the Royal Courts of Justice, starting Monday 23rd April, from 9:30am to 4:30pm. Please come round for net-working with likeminded spirits!

… especially in secret family courts which should be replaced by open criminal courts

… in bankruptcy and insolvency procedures where we placed the worst known cases before the relevant Ministers – without any redress or change, let alone ‘remedy’ a la Article 13 of the European Convention of Human Rights

… when covering up crimes by colleagues in the NHS, Inland Revenue, Police and other public ‘authorities’.

when turning innocent victims into political prisoners:

  • the Musas for daring to stand up to Haringey Council
  • Maurice J Kirk BVSc for daring to challenge South Wales Police
  • other women whose children were taken and whom I visit in HMP Holloway – trying to get the privileges of LEGAL visits for McKenzie Friends, i.e. the right to take papers in and out – for prisoners who are on remand and who don’t have legal representation.

Meanwhile, even Reuters is wondering: Is Britain more corrupt than it thinks?

Judiciary Guilty of Criminal Acts: 10-Day Campaigning outside Royal Courts of Justice starting April 23rd


That’s quite an effort to make: ten days of demoing from 9:30 to 4:30 each day!

But the Campaign for Truth and Justice has done it before. Its founder Caul Grant has spent six years in prison under totally false pretenses, after he lost his son to the NHS. Not surprisingly his marriage and job, too…

He writes:

We plan to be there from about 9:30 am to 4:30 pm each day, so far there has been a very positive feedback and we have made links with others who are disgruntled with the system.

We have also begun a leafleting campaign, naming and shaming judges who have directly played a part in perverting the due course and have thus provoked a reaction from the State.

Visible publicity is a must if we should have any real hope of achieving our aims and objectives. I have also discovered the power of Twitter, its been great to reach out to others and have had many RTs.


The Abuse of Grandma B – a sad story of organised white collar crime


Whether it’s children or the elderly: when money is in sight, Social Services, local Police, local councils and politicians – they seem to prefer to benefit from bribes than stand up for the vulnerable and victims…

This link is about her short story and this one a bit longer – very reminiscent indeed of Paulette H Cooper whose assets have been plundered in the same systematic way. On top of that, she now is suffering from NHS blunders… But, of course, the NHS is protected by a Royal Charter just like all other civil servants…

Here’s an article about the diamond wedding and here about the husband’s death.

Some call it ‘state terrorism’ when the state is out to get its citizens – whether as individuals or ‘en bloc’ and ‘en masse’…

For any hope for justice or compensation seems useless. But we owe it to our conscience to have tried our best!

Appealing on behalf of WWII Veteran Norman Scarth – a passionate plea and accusation from Canada + demo details for Saturday


Here’s what Jean from Canada wrote to all members of the House of Commons and Lords, as well as media contacts:

Dear Sirs:



Norman Scarth, nearly 86 years old and a World War II navy and arctic convoy veteran, badly needs help to save him from the torture and abuse inflicted upon him by the British government in Her Majesty’s prison, Leeds. As you will see from Norman’s open letter, there is British corruption, not only in politics, media, and police, but in the prison service. Judge Jonathon Rose, at the very least, lacks good judgement and compassion, and the National Health Service (NHS) have failed in their duty of care;  they are not providing Norman with basic medical care, which is wilful negligence because a phone call was made to Clare Shepherd, head of NHS PALS Leeds on Sunday, July 30, 2011, and she assured me that she would attend to his medical needs. As you will see below, Ann Lavery from the same unit was also approached and refused to take any action, despite the fact that Norman has lodged a complaint from inside the prison, which he has a right to do, but he is being ignored. Norman is being denied, not only his medical care, but also his paperwork is being blocked and complaints ignored.

David Cameron will have his hands full in September, and I am sure that Her Majesty will be outraged that a navy veteran should be denied basic care, particularly with the Royal connections to the navy. He is in solitary confinement in a prison for serious offenders.

His crime? Making a video recording of a court hearing. Sentence? Six months, and it would appear to be solitary confinement for six months. How many six months periods does he have left in his life, he is asking…

This is in the public interest worldwide.

Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, was advised last week, and numerous other ministers and members of parliament were also advised about Norman’s case, along with members of government’s supposed Joint Committee for Human Rights, but the British government is notorious for ignoring their accountability and setting up quisling quangos and, as usual, there has been no response

Here are the people in government who were advised a week ago:


The Director-General of the National Offender Management Service, Michael Spurr, was also advised, along with UN Human Rights, and Leeds Prison Governor and assistant, Rob Kellett and Dave Parsons,  and the Prisons and Probations Ombudsman:

Not one responded except for the latter:

Dear Ms James

Thank you for email about the treatment of Mr Scarth at HMP Leeds.  I am sorry to hear of your concerns.

The Prisons and Probation Ombudsman can only consider complaints from prisoners’ themselves about their treatment whilst in the Prison Service.  His complaint about not receiving medication is not covered by our terms of reference.  If Mr Scarth is not satisfied about the lack of medication then he will need to complain to the Health Service Ombudsman.

With regards to the condition of the cell, if Mr Scarth is not satisfied about this then he needs to complete the internal complaints procedure before the Ombudsman can intervene.

I am sorry that I cannot be of more assistance.

Yours sincerely

Norman HAS filed a complaint. Everyone is ignoring it.

The only member of parliament to have show any concern, as usual, is the Rt. Hon. and honest  John Hemming, MP.

You will see that the email list includes human rights groups, which we know to be merely shop fronts used for political purposes. There are no human rights in the UK for anyone who is victimized by the criminal fraternity.

British prisons are full, and 20,000 of the prisoners are veterans, who are being denied counselling and psychiatric healthcare needs, the British government preferring to funnel money into prisons rather than veteran healthcare, and now they imprison this little old man and abuse him simply for turning on his video recording equipment. He is a retired stud farmer, and decorated war hero and this is a national disgrace. If anyone knows anything at all about horses, you will know that you have to be gentle with them. Norman is a gentle man and a gentleman.

Please help. I write from Canada. Norman is loved around the world. He devotes his life to helping others 24/7. Will you cover the story please?

The attachments have been transcribed from Norman’s handwriting. Originals are available on request, but so many attachments made this email to large to send. He can barely write because his muscles are cramping due to the fact that he has been denied the medication that he needs, so it would have been difficult for you to read the originals.

These are serious human rights issues, and it is an absolute western society disgrace.

This was the response received from PALS (NHS) when friends advised them that Norman was being denied medication, warmth, and exercise.

There will be peaceful and lawful demonstration and rally in support of decorated World War II veteran, 85 year old Norman Scarth. Norman was imprisoned for six months on July 25th 2011 for making a recording of a court hearing. Norman’s barrister apologised on Norman’s behalf when Norman returned to court, but he was sentenced to an excessive six months in a prison for serious offenders, regardless. Since then, he was only allowed one phone call, and is being denied all visitors; his conditions could be described as torturous as he been denied exercise.

He has been told that either he walks for a full hour or not at all. He is unable to walk for a full hour – he is an 85 year old man with health problems. He is cold at night and sleeps in his clothing.

We feel the sentence is excessive, cruel, and inhumane for an 86 year old man with health problems, who has been fighting for our freedom, not only during World War II, when his heroic acts helped keep Britain free, but on a regular daily basis for many, many years, with his efforts to bring truth, justice, and transparency into the UK Courts and legal system and to highlight the corruption. It is a serious human rights issue.

Leeds Prison is a prison for serious offenders. Whereas, once, the demographics of this prison were predominantly that of serious offenders in their 30s, the population is now dominated by senior citizens. Who is sending them there?

Norman has been fighting for our freedom and now we have to fight for his! It is imperative that there is a massive turn out.

Victim turned Warrior and Chronic Litigant detained by Portsmouth Police to be handed over to South Wales Colleagues


Maurice Kirk’s saga is enshrined in a room full of files. No comparison to Mr Ebert’s suitcase of documents!…

Recently Maurice followed Mr Ebert’s model of WANTED posters to pinpoint those judges whose judgments have affected his life most detrimentally.

In the light of what judges do in family courts, Stephen Glover wrote Judges are unelected, out of touch and shockingly arrogant.

Recently, Maurice and I completed this text as a summary of his odyssey and he said “this is still worth breathing for” – at 66, recovering from a hip replacement carried out in France, for the NHS refused to release the medical records without which his surgical team wouldn’t operate… More
