All those, who have read my blog, know that parents of the learning disabled/ autistic, have no rights, nor do their children, against the huge state cabal of health, and social care.
Even if, their child, signs a lasting power of attorney to them, to look after their welfare, this will be overridden by the Court of Protection, illegally, on the grounds that their child is ‘incapable’ of ever being able, to make a decision per se.
This removal, of all legal capacity by the state. must warrant, as the worse form of disability discrimination, and, the most severe, draconian interference with the human rights of parents, and, the deemed mentally disabled .
As, the learning disabled have no rights, their capacity, and legal competency is removed, and, they are prevented from making any decisions for life.
A life without choice, is no life.
They are disappeared, from the community, removed from their family, and placed in private profit, venture capital ‘care’/cages, for which our government pay £3,500 minimum per week, of our money, made available to the disabled and their families, under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Act 1970, to private, increasingly venture capital, monopoly owners.
In the lie of supported ,or, ‘independent living’.
Once 18, they are children of the state.
A state, that has been seen, to abuse them in secret.
3 a day at the very least, are now dying needlessly.
Only 1% of their deaths are even investigated.
And, when they are, only after an expensive family fight, all are said to die of ‘natural causes’.
But, how can that be ?
They are only learning disabled, a term, that is being applied to more and more, by use of an unfair, discriminatory, adeptive test
And, not physically ill.
I am unsure, what law the petition, is asking to be changed.
We do not need the law to be changed, we just need it, to be enforced legally by the courts, social services, and the Official Solicitor appointed to act for the disabled.
By any Lasting Powers of Attorney, not being overridden by the Court of Protection illegally, on the basis, that a learning disabled person, who signed one, in favour of their parents to take care of them, was at the time incapable, when the MCA assumes capability until proven otherwise, and this cannot be retrospective.
And to allow these parents Guardianship of their own children for life, if they wish, without state interference.
This will then give parents the rights, they need against the state, so there, is no need to change the law, except in so far, as parents should automatically, be given rights over their own children to make decisions jointly with them about their future care..
