UK Police State – Oppression, Legality and profit?

None will break ranks though Nations trek from progress’, Wilfred Owen

2 World Wars, and this is our freedom


My fury was sparked by images below, and then the thought of the private profit that could be made from the oppression and damage to UK citizens and their rights, and paid out of their money

To say nothing of the trampling of UK Citizens Liberties by whom, and for What ?

An assembly of more than 2 is now an arrestable offence as is failure to give your details on request – all undebated, civil service legislation

No Rule of Law or separation of powers- Executive rules

Life Profit Made From ASD/LD out of hospitals

The following is a copy of Mail Ian Birrell publication.

After a long media campaign on deaths in hospitals on a poltical one from Norman Lamb MENCAP. ETC.

it shows the autistic and learning disabled are huge and ever increasing, on guaranteed public income,, cashcows.

What is not mentioned is that the hospital owners UHS, have bought up Cambian/Lifeways ,who own the ‘community living’ homes these patients can only be referred to,,, as monopoly funding under Health and Social Care Act 12 only allows them to be funded.

And this ‘community living’ in name only, is for life under the Mental Capacity Act with no hope of release, and parents/family can be excluded from even visits, and any treatment given in MCA BEST INTERESTS, including referral back to hospital.

So ASD/LD PATIENT in much worse than MHA SECTION in a mental hospital.

The PUBLIC payment from Health and Social Care per week is £9,000 + PER PATIENT,, and guaranteed, increasing for life, with no accountability for care or spend- see Thomas Rawnsley, who died in community living- Kingdom House, owned by Lifeways/Cambian effectively, owned by Cygnet UHS

A cluster of ‘fat cat’ private operators is creaming off hundreds of millions of pounds from the NHS after muscling in on the cruel but lucrative trade in locking up people with autism and learning disabilities.

The Mail on Sunday can reveal that seven providers are charging taxpayers up to £730,000 a year for each patient held in controversial and secretive secure psychiatric units.

There are 2,375 people with autism and learning disabilities held in assessment and treatment units (ATUs) at a cost of about half a billion pounds a year, with scores more held in other secure units. One man alone is thought to have cost taxpayers more than £10 million after being held against his family’s wishes for more than 17 years.

Two giant US healthcare companies, a global private equity group and a Guernsey-based hedge fund have joined two British firms and a major charity operating in the sector and are giving their bosses massive pay packages.

They are expanding operations despite Government pledges to move people with autism and learning disabilities out of secure units and into the community after a series of abuse scandals.

Furious families says they are ‘profiteering from misery’ and Labour is demanding an urgent statement from Health Secretary Matt Hancock after an investigation by this newspaper found half-a-million-pound pay packages and profit margins as high as 31 per cent.

‘It’s nothing short of a national scandal that private companies are being allowed to hive off millions of pounds of NHS money to detain people with learning disability and autism, some in such monstrous conditions,’ said Barbara Keeley, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Mental Health and Social Care.

Two weeks ago, we exposed how hundreds of people with autism and learning disabilities are being routinely abused in some facilities, confined in horrific seclusion cells, fed through hatches like animals, aggressively restrained and forcibly drugged.

The revelations led Mr Hancock to order an urgent inquiry into the use of segregation and long-term seclusion. The Equality and Human Rights Commission warned the NHS could face a formal investigation for human rights abuses of vulnerable people.

Now The Mail on Sunday can reveal that firms in this sector include:

An American healthcare giant whose boss earned £39.5 million in one year, despite his firm facing allegations of fraud and ‘preying’ on vulnerable people to boost profits in secure units;
Another huge US firm that handed five executives almost £15 million last year and has been snapping up British operators, including the Priory Group, famous for also treating celebrities;
A controversial British company that paid one director more than £1 million over two years despite claims that their staff failed to stop patients self-harming, with one patient later dying, and allegations of a sex assault in a hospital;
Groups controlling firms that run a secure unit in Norfolk which are owned by two families who pocketed £2,261,782 in pay and dividends over the past year;
Another British firm, backed by private equity and formed only 23 months ago, which runs 55 units and turns over £176 million, with 31.4 per cent profit margins;
A charity that is Britain’s biggest provider of specialist psychiatric care that gave its departed chief executive nearly £1 million over the past two years, despite being at the centre of claims that it fed teenagers in solitary confinement through hatches.
Angry families complain their children are seen as ‘cash cows’ and are milked by private providers that can charge the NHS more than £14,000 a week and whose own staff help make decisions on sectioning people under mental health laws.

‘It’s an outrage given the numerous cases of neglect, abuse and deaths of vulnerable people in their care,’ said Isabelle Garnett, an autism activist whose teenage son suffered badly during two years detained in secure units.

This newspaper has revealed families are having teenagers and young adults with autism and learning disabilities taken away and stuck in supposedly short-stay ATUs and secure units for many years.

Darren Slater, who has autism and learning disabilities, has been held for 17 years, despite having his own house bought with NHS compensation for a birth mistake. ‘There is a lot of money being made out of all this,’ said his father Brian.

Another mother said she was forced to feed sweets to her teenage son with autism through metal bars after seeing him transported between secure units in a cage in a van. ‘I was so angry but so powerless,’ said Julie Newcombe, whose son is now free.

She set up Rightful Lives with others to expose human rights abuses. ‘How can the Government waste millions imprisoning children and tell families there is no money for support at home? There is a huge conflict of interest within the private sector because heads on beds equals money in the bank, which means profit becomes the ultimate barrier to discharge.’

The NHS spent £477.4 million in 2016 on people with autism and learning disabilities just in ATUs, which are meant to assess and treat psychiatric needs, rather than resolve care shortfalls. Instead, people are becoming trapped, often from adolescence, in an abusive, medicated and stressful system that can make conditions worse.

Ministers have promised repeatedly since the 2011 Winterbourne View abuse scandal to move such people out of unsuitable secure units and into community care. Many units rely on carers paid only marginally above minimum wage levels.

Yet the number of adults with autism and learning disabilities locked up in ATUs fell only slightly over the past three years, while the number of children more than doubled. Last year, there were 28,880 restraint incidents in England alone.

One reliable source confirmed he had seen confidential data showing a health body paying average rates in 2016 of £2,007 per person a day.

Over the past decade, the proportion in privately-run beds has soared from one-fifth to more than half, as new players such as Acadia, a Tennessee-based healthcare group, moved into the profitable trade in vulnerable people.

Acadia spent £1.3 billion on the Priory Group two years ago. It now has 61 hospitals in Britain – ten holding people with autism and learning disabilities in secure units and three ATUs – among its 586 facilities and 18,000 psychiatric beds worldwide. Chief executive Joey Jacobs was reported to have earned £7.5 million last year alone in salary, bonuses and stock.

One mother I spoke to was close to tears over treatment of her child in a Welsh unit run by Priory. ‘I’m fighting for her life,’ said Gillian Mead, whose daughter Lee, 43, was sectioned for the first time in April and claims to have been often restrained. ‘Lee has lost about five stone, and says “I want to come home” all the time. It’s awful.’

Last year, the Priory Group made £62.2 million profit, with most revenues funded by taxpayers. It handed one director £243,000 in remuneration. ‘The number of people with learning disabilities and autism placed in our secure hospitals by NHS England amounts to just two per cent of Priory Group beds and this number is falling,’ said a spokesman. He added that patient safety and family engagement were a priority and that all units were subject to regular official inspections.

Universal Health Services is another huge US healthcare firm snapping up British psychiatric services. In June, it bought the Danshell Group, specialising in autism and learning disabilities at its 25 facilities. Universal’s founder is Alan Miller, reportedly the richest chief executive in the hospital industry – in 2016 he collected more than £39 million in pay, bonuses and stock.

Yet in 2016, a year-long Buzzfeed investigation in nine US states accused the firm of pressuring staff to fill beds in hospitals for financial gain, even by falsely making patients appear suicidal. The claims were strongly disputed by the firm.

Its British operations are run by Cygnet Healthcare, which boasted in recent accounts of earning revenues from 220 NHS purchasing bodies – a rise of 44 in a year – and almost doubling income as profits surged to £40.4 million.

The fast-expanding firm gave its highest paid director a £508,000 pay package, a £162,000 increase on the previous year. Yet at one unit, staff injected patients in face-down restraints with medication, against official guidance. A secure unit in Woking was put in special measures after 24 serious incidents in a children’s ward, including sexual assault and staff failures to stop ‘significant’ self-harm including cutting and ligature-tying.

A Cygnet spokesman said the Woking unit was now judged ‘good’ with safe care, while the firm was making ‘significant investments’ to ensure people with autism were treated in non-hospital environments if possible.

British firms include Huntercombe, which ran the ATU – since closed – in which one young woman was fed so much in seclusion that she died from obesity in 2013. The firm handed its highest-paid director £1,059,000 over the past two years – it is not known if this is chief executive Valerie Michie.

Huntercombe runs ten hospitals, of which three units with 91 beds focus on patients with autism and learning disabilities.

An inspection earlier this year into one of them, the 40-bed Cedar House in Kent, found services and safety ‘required improvement’. Serious incidents registered included three cases of patients swallowing batteries, two other cases of self-harm and an allegation of sexual assault, plus use of ‘heavily soiled’ bed linen. One man also died in hospital after sticking batteries up his nose.

Huntercombe is owned by hedge fund Terra Firma, registered in low-tax Guernsey and run by Guy Hands, one of Britain’s richest men, worth an estimated £265 million.

‘We ensure no patient in our hospitals is isolated,’ said a spokesman, adding there had been no serious injuries caused by ‘rarely-used’ restraint over the past year.

The spokesman added: ‘We are committed to supporting safe discharge to community-based support services. However, we have no influence over the availability of those services.’

The family-owned Jeesal Group runs Cawston Park in Norfolk. It holds one man whose father told me he is so powerfully sedated, he sleeps sometimes 15 hours a day – and one source claimed such care is costing the NHS £12,000 a week.

Accounts indicate two families called Akman and Subramaniam own one group holding company and shared £1.59 million last year in dividends, with another £52,684 paid to directors and £128,998 to family members.

A linked company run by one of the founders paid her another £81,000 and £415,000 in dividends to five shareholders sharing her name, plus one trust.

The firm did not respond last week to requests for comment. Previously it said ‘typical’ rates for Cawston Park were £4,242 a week and the holding company paid chief executive Tugay Akman £1,596, with his family taking dividends of £60,000 last year.

‘Since 2014, we have discharged over 100 people back into the community,’ said business development director Andrew Gordon, who insisted that the firm’s margins were 9.62 per cent last year.

Other players moving into the sector include Elysium, which is backed by private equity group BC Partners through a firm in Luxembourg. It already operates at 55 English locations despite only launching in December 2016, and paid its three directors £726,000 last year.

Three directors of Cheswold Park Hospital in Doncaster, which has been accused of over-use of restraint and medication errors, are also being investigated by the tax authorities over £24.9 million payments to a secret trust in Belize over seven years.

St Andrew’s Healthcare is at the centre of some of the most distressing claims, including the case of 17-year-old Beth, locked up and fed through a hatch. Although a charity, its latest accounts show it paid £100,000 or more to 73 employees last year and shared £1,736,000 among seven directors.

Anne Longfield, the Children’s Commissioner for England who has responsibilities for children in care, has written to the NHS asking how many children have been placed with the organisation. According to her data, 193 children were admitted to its low-secure unit in the year leading up to August 2017. The charity – which has spent £45 million building the biggest adolescent unit in Europe at its Northampton hospital – declined to comment.

The Mail on Sunday has seen a letter from Norman Lamb, Care Minister in the Coalition, to a housing charity in May 2013 insisting Ministers were ‘committed’ to ensure ‘everyone inappropriately in hospital will move to community-based support no later than 1 June, 2014.’

Yet only last week a Government inspector backed the opening of a 54-bed facility in Wrexham operated by ASC Healthcare, which is controlled through a Jersey firm.

‘The huge sums spent on these places would be far better used to support people to live longer, fuller and healthier lives in their local communities,’ said Chris Hatton, professor of public health and disability at Lancaster University.

How one patient has cost £10m

No case better illustrates the poignancy of this issue – and the sums spent– than that of Tony Hickmott. He has been locked up for almost 18 years at Cedar House, a 40-bed secure unit near Canterbury owned by Huntercombe, despite his mother Pam saying he never harmed anyone when living at home.

Pam says she was told in 2003 it was costing £600,000 a year to keep her son in conditions she describes as ‘worse than a prison’. Since then, fees are likely to have risen. But even if they had stayed the same, this one case has cost taxpayers more than £10 million. ‘He could have been in the best hotel for this money,’ says Pam. ‘He’s only got autism but he’s been left so damaged by this.’

A recent inspection found safety and services at Cedar House needed improvement. Huntercombe says the typical length of stay there is six to 12 months and fees are agreed with the NHS.

Thomas Rawnsley- No natural causes.

How could a Court order a Jury to find Thomas died of natural causes ?

After The Coroner removed any issues relevant to his right to life from her Jury only allowed because of Thomas’ Right to life.

Natural causes refer to internal factors — like a medical condition or a disease — as opposed to external factors, like trauma from an accident.

… On a death certificate, natural causes actually refers to the “manner of death” rather than the specific cause.-

A Coronors Court investigates manner of death and will/should not be involved if death natural.

From Thomas death certificate He died of ‘hypoxia and Downs Syndrome’

He was a fit 20 year old, with no history of any serious medical conditions before State and its ‘care’ intervention.

Hypoxia and Downs are not conditions or diseases you die from.

The hospital he was eventually sent to, when effectively clinically dead, was so concerned it issued a safeguarding notice to the relevant authority

A Coroner is only required if a death is suspicious and not of natural causes was notified.

So why a Coroner Inquest ?

The coroner agreed to an NHS investigation into his death– why and why NHS investigating if natural causes ?

Thomas from pictures in this blog and video, had a severe chest infection and was clearly overmedicated, surpressing his body, making it impossible/difficult to breath with an untreated chest infection leading to a heart attack and no oxygen to his brain.

No chest x rays were given- nor it appears any medical attention from an attendant GP to avoid his death

He was given anti biotics but continued to deteriorate, but unseen, as his Mum states;

he did deteriorate but all the staff said he didn’t and he often feigned illness. Also the mars sheets are missing so don’t know what he had

When his Mum cried out for this weeks before he died she was gagged by the Sheffield Court of Protection on specific application on her cry to contact media.

This was after months of her receiving distressing phone calls from Thomas and a huge carpet burn to his stomach from being dragged and a complaint to the CQC that had not even inspected Kingdom House AND DID not do so until 8 months after Thomas’ death.

Here a facebook post by his Mum

Here in a Facebook post his Mum describes 3 days before he died, even then no medical treatment

Thomas‘ Dad shouting in a meeting only a couple of weeks before Thomas died that they were killing our son,

writing to the department of health around the same time begging for help in getting Thomas out of Kingdom house, as our concerns were being ignored and we were treat with contempt for daring to complain about Thomas’ rapidly declining mental and physical well being, that makaton wasn’t being used so the ability to understand Thomas was inadequate or that Thomas was dragged across a floor causing an injury to Thomas torso in the days leading up to his death were irrelevant and only the last few days of Thomas’ life were to be taken into account.

In Kingdom House paid £8.000 + a week for his care, him being one of three cared for, in a house two thirds empty and rated by CQC as good months later with no mention of Thomas death.,,

The 999 transcript from the night 3 days
before Thomaa’ death when I beg them to get an smbulance states that staff lock themselves in the kitchen while my poorly son is left alone screaming in agony and a staff member is shouting that its my fault for mentioning an ambulance.the paramedics turn up with 4 police officers and find that Thomas” oxygen levels are 93% but tell us his stats are fine and he’s ok. Thomas died 3 days later

Lifeways PR comment

No description available.

And a Court OF UK LAW, was allowed to order a Jury to find his death natural ?

another Court of Protection ordered his ‘care’ in Kingdom House, where he died.

Funded by NHS APPROVED and overseen by LA . state protected by natural causes

Thomas Rawnsley ordered to die from ‘natural causes’

This day marks a terrible injustice, personally and systemically.

Nearly a month of an inquest in Sheffield, 6 yrs late and stitched up from day 1; a family’s fight for justice to balm their grief has just been smashed by the verdict of ‘natural causes of death’ of a learning disabled young lad, irrefutably severely abused to death.

Not even a whiff of negligence.

We should be deeply disturbed by the corruption of our care and legal system. Cambian/Lifeways cares rep and profits completely untarnished.

And the millions of public money spent on this- Court, barristers, solicitors, experts, judge, Lifeways £8,000 a week for ‘care’ death.

Their service will carry on exploitative and abusive with impunity, as no accountability.

A service that costs public £8,000 + a week does not ensure the service user even a right to life let alone care

❗Any inquest is defunct to begin with, as stated in undebated civil servant legislation, LD/autistic don’t have a ‘right to life’❗

So, as Thomas was, anyone ordered to a Care facility, as he was, against his and his families wishes, in their MCA best interests, does not even have a right to life in that ‘care’

How many deaths have been covered up and how many will there be to come, when every inquest gets rubber stamped, and faded into the ether to preserve venture capitalist profit from public money?

I worry deeply for my sister’s future, as she was planned to be transferred to Kingdom House, the place and very day Thomas died, to be one of the many disposable cashcows on the conveyor belt of money-making we call a care system.

Written by my daughter on this tragic, despicable day when the cold façade of justice became colder and evermore inaccessible.

The Role OF the Person Centred Planner Re Issy ?

A PCP as with Issy is employed by a charity usually MENCAP, as here, but Charity paid by Social Services/NHS so PCP’s contract dependent on these funds so they pay the Piper, and it must fit the public SS/NHS remit.

Here I illustrate how – we are a desperate family in need of help here is what we got and we pay through taxes to be so targeted and invaded.

Letter sent to SHSC Trust re PCP for Issy

We were told a PCP, would be part of the CARE SERVICES AGREEMENT, but this was not mentioned at the first CSA meeting, and, the PCP only arrived at second one, without any prior notification to us .

PCP, Has made two one hour visits to our home 1/4/16-8/4 with development worker.did not see Issy, as she was asleep, and, declined to see her in the bedroom.

On first visit pcp said,

‘I don’t know any history of what has happened’.

Yet, she is to represent/ be the voice of the person- Issy in the ‘the plan’.

And more crucially PCP, did not appear to know what this plan was. Admitting she does not view care plans.

X has, after a written request to cARE SERVIVES COORINATOR stated that the plan is to get Isabel out of her home and to Burton Street for activities.

We feel therefore that this PCP should have been informed, of at least ,the crucial parts of Isabel’s history, ie that she will not leave the house, and why, is suffering from PTSD she was not, and nor did she want to discuss these matters, nor did she mention their devastating impact on Isabel in her draft report/assessment.

We have been told, by the CSA team, and the SS, that the plan, is to get Issy, out of the house, and to Burton street centre, for daytime activities, and, on request this was confirmed in writing by SHSC.

But, this plan, was not mentioned by the PCP.

And, when asked about it, she knew nothing about the plan to get Issy to Burton Street, and the activities that where available there.

Nor, of the fact, that Issy, has refused to go out walking, except, for a few occasions around the close, since April 2014, nor the reason, apparently being told by education support, that she cannot live at home.

Nor, that she refused, to go back to her NAS placement in 2013, because of her abuse there.

Nor, did the PCP, have sight of Issy’s care plan, nor knew of her activities, or interests, or severe trauma, PTSD, she is being treated for.

When we told the PCP, that all Issy’s, now previous activities, had been detailed in education, care plans, expert reports, regularly, particularly, over the past year to the CSA coordinator she demanded the names of the people this information had been given to, we duly obliged with them.

So, we did not know why PCP, was in our home asking us any question she wanted, and she was unaware of matters that were crucial to Issy, affecting her., and therefore any plan.

Except she is one of the assessments that the court has ordered, but we do not know what she was assessing.

The PCP’s questions appeared to be targeted to find insufficient parental attention, stimulation in the home, routine, interests and activities.

Rather than, as the PCP, told us, ‘To paint a picture of Issy’,

She asked specific questions, rather than really engaging with what we were saying.

For example, after we had told her, that Isabel had not been out for over a year, in answer to her question, ‘Does Issy like going out?’

Later, when we were discussing what Issy ate, she asked ,
’Did you say you used to go out for meals ?’ .

’Do you go out for meals now?’.

She then asked where does Issy eat.

A complained of social services core assessment in 2014 stated wrongly, that we eat, as a family round a table, but make Issy eat on her own in the lounge.

NHS psychiatrist in March 2015, had asked a similar question, and commented on the fact she would not like crumbs in the lounge.

This shows, that PCP, did not listen to, an incredibly important fact for Issy, that she was frightened to leave the house, and, did not enquire into why, when told, yet appeared to elude, to a false emotional abuse allegation, that we force Issy to eat alone in the sitting room, whilst we eat together in the kitchen, by asking, did she go out for meals with us, and that it was alright to eat alone, ignoring the fact that Issy before her trauma had eaten with us when this was possible.

When we pointed this out to her, she just said,
‘Well some people like to eat on their own’,

and did not follow up our reply, that Issy used to eat with us on holidays and outings, but had stopped, since her abuse by NAS and trauma.
And, one of the questions she asked was,

‘Does she have lots of new books coming in?’.

Not what types of books, or, standard of reading, or, if she still reads.
Another, ‘How important is it to Issy to have a routine?’

‘ And what would happen if it were taken away?’
Inferring her routine had been taken away, as why would she ask this question?

We then received a copy, by post, of her report written in the first person as if Issy had written it.
It is shown in bold below.

I like walking and can walk long distances. I have walked from our homes to Meadowhall and back, my Dad thinks its about 7 miles each way. Closer to home I have also walked in Chelsea Park, in Endcliffe Park to Forge Dam and to town. Check this. I have a good sense of direction and know where I am once I am familiar with the route. I will just link arms and walk and walk and walk, an hour is nothing to me.

This was written from information, that Issy, had even once walked once to Meadowhall with care workers, but obviously, would have stopped off for lunch, and shops on way, and that once she had walked somewhere, she did appear to know routes, as she would pull you in the direction she had previously been taken..

But this report, gives the impression that Issy, at 16, surrenders herself ‘just link arms’, and walks and walks and walks,’ an hour is nothing to me’, suggesting she has no sense of time for hours on end.

Together with,‘ and know where I am once I am familiar with the route’,
suggests Issy is walking for hours and miles, not knowing, where she is, which would be destabilising for most people, but, could be deemed, particularly abusive to an autistic, who generally likes known routes, and familiar surroundings.

And, to walk 14 miles, in less than 6 hours, would be excessive for anyone, and, conjures up images of not stopping, and enforced abusive fatigues.
We pointed all this out to PCP on her second visit and she just said,’Its really nice if someone likes to walk’.

In the past I have used public transport to get to activities.
In the past I would go swimming regularly.
Issy swam, four times in 18 months, of returning home.

I like to read this is something I will sit and do with people. In the past I would read alone, I would do it quickly then put the book down. Now I mainly do it to be with Mum and Dad. I have a collection of Ladybird books that I like. When we are reading if I don’t recognise the words, you can read them to me, I will memorise them and repeat them to you. I can also write if you say the letters phonetically.

This information was compiled from the fact, when Issy was 6/7, she could even read a book on her own, but chose not to, has not done so since..
But, preceded by,’ Now I mainly do it to be with Mum and Dad.’

Suggests, Issy, reads on her own, and, mainly now reads, as a means ‘to be’ with her Mum and Dad.

The inference being, she is so desperate, to be with her parents, she only reads, to be with them, and, this is her only means of being with them and as she no longer reads is not with them- parental neglect evidence.

We pointed this out to the PCP, on her second visit, and she merely replied, ’I was a nice thing to say that she wants to be with Mum and Dad’.

Despite the fact, it was not said by us, is not true, as Issy has always read with her Mum and /or Dad, whenever she wants, and, can be with us, whenever she wants.

I spend time watching DVD’s, I like ones like Castaway and Spiderman. When I was younger I liked ones like Bob the Builder, I would describe what was happening, commenting on things like Wendy’s earrings.
If I met you I would also comment on details about what you were wearing, your earrings or jewellery. My Mum links this with my autism and focussing on the small things, she says I am fascinated by people. In the past I’ve spent time sitting in cafes and watching as people go past.

It is not only Issy’s Mum, who links this with her autism, but, is a characteristic of certain autistic people, which is all the mother said.
It, gives the impression, that Issy, is being stereo typed by her own mother, and not being treated as an individual.

And is superfluous, and Issy herself, would not know, or think this or say it.
And, it is the only time, that the report/assessment, considers the effect of Issy’s autism on her activities, and behaviour.

My Dad says I am very intuitive about people, I make my mind up about who I like quite quickly.

When I am anxious I will ask a series of questions and expect you to give me the answer . I will ask where my Dad is, then you tell me he has gone to get fish and chips. My Mum and Dad say I know he is not doing this and is at work or something , but this is what I need to hear.I ask more questions and we might get to the actual answer or this will be enugh and I will happily move on.

I LIKE HAVING MY ARMS TICKLED .I will instigate this by walking up to you and putting my arm out. Or show my back and let you tickle that. I want you to gently tickle me up and down my arm.
I am not a fussy eater . I will eat all and everything. I like savoury things best, Gala pies, chicken pies, curry and rice, but I really like cheese and crackers. I like to drink coffee.

all and everything’, suggests Issy, literally is eating everything, and all, that is there, as, if she stuffs herself, and does not discern between different foods, nor, know when to stop eating.

And, that her eating/nutrition, is therefore, in no way being controlled.
What was actually said , was Issy will eat anything. Why was this not simply stated? Or left at her not being a fussy eater.

When I am in the kitchen I like things done in a certain way. I will be precise about getting the things out for a cup of coffee laying them out in the right place but ten I will want to do it as quickly as possible. I believe everything has a place and should be in it, when they are in the wrong places I will replace them and restore order. I don’t like clutter.

I will replace them and restore order.’
This was not said, or true.

What was said, was, Issy puts orange juice/beakers/milk back after using them, puts any rubbish in the bin, puts sponge from sink on draining board in a precise spot .

It paints a picture of a disorganised, disordered home environment, which, would be abusive to Issy, particularly as an autistic.

I have a good sense of danger in the house. I understand the risk around hot pans on the stove for example. I never do anything that would result in me being hurt.
We said that Issy has never hurt herself at home. This is spun to Issy saying,

’ I never do anything that would result in me being hurt’.

The use of ‘would’ and ‘never’, gives the impression,that Issy, thinks that nothing she does in the home, would ever, result in harm to her. Which is a dangerous assumption, particularly, dangerous, as she is autistic.
As this information has come from her parents, it also implies, that they think Issy, would never do anything, that would result in her being hurt, and shows, Issy is not being safeguarded properly.

‘My Mum says I understand everything’.

This was not said, and, again is a dangerous assumption of an autistic person, in view, of their problems with communication, and, again as it is being assumed by her parents, would mean, insufficient care, was being taken to ensure, that Issy understood matters being said to her.

‘ I am very mischievous’. This suggests Issy is always mischievous, and excessively so.
I will angle my foot to try and trip you up, then walk away laughing’.
This has been seen to be done by Issy only twice, and, the last time was 6 years ago.
This presents the behaviour as happening now and often, and, would made Issy a danger to others.
My Mum says I like slap stick humour, if you sneeze I will giggle, or if you trip up it will make me laugh .Mum says I will take the rise; I do things to get a reaction, this implies she is not getting reactions from her normal interactions, so getting insufficient attention, switch the lights off or flush the toilet too much. I also like to throw things out of the window; so much my Mum and Dad have to lock the lower ones to keep our belongings in the house. But for all this disruption my Mum would still describe me as having a brilliant sense of humour.’

This is an exaggeration, of a few incidents, that took place, now over a year ago, when Issy threw some CDs, books, photos out of her bedroom and kitchen windows. Those in her bedroom, have now been unlocked at the bottom for nearly a year, and, Issy has not thrown anything out or attempted to for a year.

It paints a picture of a constant behaviour of throwing ‘our belonging’ out of the house, ‘so much so’, that we need to permanently lock all windows, causing ‘all this disruption’. When there was little ‘disruption’, and, it only happened 3 times, and not now for over a year.
But for all this disruption my Mum would still describe me as having a brilliant sense of humour.
Suggests that Mum thinks such behaviour acceptable, and, just part of a’ brilliant sense of humour’, and has done nothing to stop it, or, given boundaries to halt major household ‘disruption’, would be still continuing if the windows were not locked.
My Mum and dad say I am quietly keeping myself to myself, or being happy and laughing.’
This is misleading, and does not take into consideration Issy’s disturbed emotional behaviour now, her PTSD, fear of leaving her home, reluctance to engage with others, and her problems during periods.

It does not mention these matters, and the most important thing that Issy wants, is to remain with her mum, dad and sister Eleanor .

It does not mention her relationship with her parents and sister, and why Issy’s main questions repeatedly are, where is Daddy and Sister Eleanor?.

It also does not consider the effect of her autism, PTSD, or her belief, that if she goes out, she will never come back, not any medical issues on Issy’s behaviour.

These matters, were not picked up on, by PCP’s second and last visit.
And, when I explained, that sometimes Issy’s behaviour changed for example, she acquired a stammer on reading, or made noises like a saw or drill, so her behaviour could change.

Her response was a complete overreaction, as she said,
‘So you can’t gauge what she is going to do, she is a very spontaneous person’.
Again spinning small matters, to produce possibly serious potential risk factors, as these are unknown.

We are therefore, very concerned, as to the real motive of the PSP engagement/assessment of Issy, as it does not appear to be, as she said to ‘paint a picture of Issy’.
Well, certainly not, as she is at the moment, and in any event Issy’s interests, activities, food, clothing, reading etc, as stated, are all matters of record, gone through now by psychologists, education, psychiatrists, social workers, care workers, courts now for years.

It would appear, from what we have stated, that the PCP wants to paint a picture of activities, interests in the past, and contrast them with her present ones, without explaining, why they are in the past, her behaviour as very disruptive, and, and she as neglected by her parents, and abused by having no routine .

We have always engaged and trusted the agencies of the state with the utmost openness, because we want to help our daughter feel better, and get her back to her old self , and going out.

Yet to date, pcp, nor anyone, has discussed how we can do this, which is what the SHSC and Social Services state is the object of their support.

I would be grateful if you could forward this to ALL CONCERNED

In the most mendacious fashion this PCP was eliciting evidence of parental neglect, lack of routine and abuse at family home.

UK Police State – Oppression, Legality and profit?

My fury was sparked by images below, and  then the thought of the private profit that could be made from the oppression and damage to UK citizens and their rights, and  paid out of their money

To say nothing of the trampling of UK Citizens Liberties by whom, and for What ?

An assembly of more than 2 is now an arrestable offence as is failure to give your details on request – all undebated, civil service legislation

No Rule of Law or separation of powers- Executive rules

View here a lady in Sheffield, arrested for not providing her details under one of over a hundred statutory instruments under the C Virus Act NOT debated in Parliament nor questioned anywhere.

Yet was able to remove her liberty and money – min £200- max £10,000, for daring to refuse questions by the State- hired in a yellow vest.

Here a passer by is thrown to floor with 6 police on top for enquiring what was happening to another.

Here in Manchester see 37-40 mins in police chants ‘do WHAT you are told’

small shop closed

take over for big corporate

See at 17 mins in 30 police surround an arrest with 7 police ontop of a man for 7 minutes dragged away hooded.

Police now marching around Hyde Park stopping any people 2/1/21

Who pays and employs these ‘Police’ ?

Who issues and collects the fines?

Who drafted – civil service and passed the legislation – Parliament without debate

So where is the above’s accountability to the public and those who pay them – the public

Where is the Rule of Law and Separation of Powers

Where is our choice , democracy and  freedom ?

And who profits from it- Corporate Police.  Fine Enforcers ?

How much of our money is paid and to whom, to oppress ?

Why is there no media coverage, public/ political dissent to all of this ?

Anamorphic Reality

My daughter’s thoughts on relevance of Art to today’s media and politics. Very insightful and profound. Worth a read……………

Living The Art Life

Hans Holbein, ‘The Ambassadors’ 1533

The object on the ground immediately jars against the order of the painting’s composition and disrupts our expectation of reality within this specific space.

What is it? A cloak or scroll? An albatross’ wing?

This unusual optic is a strategic distortion, known as anamorphism.

When looking at the painting form a certain side-angle, it becomes apparent that the unknown shape is unmistakably a skull – a momento/mori to remind us that all things come to an end.

A specific reference to mortality. A concept we prefer to not directly acknowledge for what it is but rather ignore, though its presence still erodes continually at our subconscious. Exactly, the effect that this object has even when looked at superficially, without knowledge of its true form.

This technique is not just confined to the realms of hidden messages in paintings of certain eras and style.

Masked Like Mules

Masked Like Mules we know our place

Masked Like Mules we bide our space

Masked Like Mules we wait in line

Smiling as if all fine

Masked Like Mules we can’t deny

As the grim reaper goes by

 Not knowing we are already dead

From the very fear we dread

We ask how high we have to jump

We wait in pen for vaccine pump


Now a slave

Once a voice

Now not so brave           

Hung Drawn and Slaughtered.



Our electoral system and PM have given the power to rule the UK to a largely unknown party, the Democratic Unionists with 10 seats.


The DUP overnight went from the zero of direct rule with a public inquiry into their leader, to King Maker .


Arlene Foster,,, not only holds the UK to ransom but also Sein Fein .


So we would all be advised to get to know her, and her parties’ agenda, in a nutshell hard Brexit, traditional values, the Union and a soft border.  


Interesting times.


Some might say, and the facts appear to confirm, all this has been brought about by a Parliament that does not appear to represent their electorate or the UK
’s interests.


But their own political agenda.
