ASD/LD Care for monopolised Profit ?

Winterbourne View ATU, OWNER CASTLEBECK VENTURE CAPITAL bought for 255 million, INCOME PER PATIENT 13,000 A WEEK paid for by NHS

After abuse aired, sold at cheap price, £30 MILLION to Danshell Group more venture capital owners,

Second REPORT of abuse Whorlton Hall owned by Danshell Group the buyer of Winterbourne View.

Bought by Cygnet USA fORTUNE in 2018

Companies House report that Cygnet Health Care Ltd Group of companies had revenue of £456.3 million (2019: £434.2 million) and a pre-tax profit of £39.6 million (2019: £27.6 million). Post-tax profit was £33.3 million in 2020 (2019:£25.7 million). According to company accounts, Cygnet “relies on publicly funded entities in the UK such as the NHS, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and local authorities for substantially all of its revenue.”

Coming from our public money.

The US parent company is a Fortune 500 corporation with annual revenues in 2020 of $11.6 billion.

2019 inadequate CQC report exposed ON Cygnet EMPLOYING WORKERS, on min wage on 24 hour shifts whilst NHS paid UP TO 13,000 a week for this ‘care’.

There were no processes in place to assess and monitor the impact of staff working excessive hours. Managers knew that staff were working up to 24 hour shifts and had no system in place to assess and mitigate the risk and impact of this on patients or staff

Yet these staff, on min wage, now 9 convicted, took sole blame for abuse as in Winterbourne

Cawston Park ATU owned by Jeesal Akman Care closed in May, Company liquidated in June owing 4 million

So a lot of money made and owed .

Why ?

To further the Government’s Transforming Care Agenda– removal out of ATU to community living placements.

They could find no public NHS placement abuse after Sparrowhawk Connor, as most bought up for lucrative venture capital investment, by groups like Cygnet and Acadia

Yet CGYNET GROUP had BOUGHT CAMBIAN/LIFEWAYS, the main providers of community living, ensuring they can MHA section any community living resident, to their £13,000 a week hospital placement paid by NHS AT ANY TIME.,

Mendip House, such a community living placement owned by NAS, still operates, fined £500 for abuse, yet paid on average £6,000 A WEEK per resident

Kingdom House – owned by Cambian/ Lifeways , Community Living no action on Thomas Rawnsley’s abuse declared by Court as natural causes,

Summerfield House Birmingham, A small 2 owner company Community Living provider, put in special measures their multimillion pound placements no doubt will now benefit the big boys Cambian/Lifeways AS NHS commissioners declared them the only ‘qualified providers’ under HSCA 12.

The aim is monopoly, enforced care for max profit.

If you want to find when abuse will be found, then IT APPEARS you follow the money and poltical agenda.

From CQC to social services, all is orchestrated for harvesting of ASD/LD to private institutions for profit

CQC,,, as should courts and social workers be independent and all independently regulated not politically agenderised.

Who now protects our most vulnerable, subject to any atrocity,? average age of death 38, costing on average £8,000 a week from our public money, PARENTS are excluded for life in their own childrens MCA best interests.

MENCAP,, NAS say nothing, may be, as controlled by state money and/or removal of their charitable status.

So who are the guardians of abuse with such potical regulation, no spy cameras in homes and no visitors or parents

Do they even need to be notified OF THEIR CHILDRENS death if in community living ?

Now up to 12 a day for ASD/LD. see CQC stats.

MHA 83 affords far more protection than MCA

MCA in community living is for life, parents can be excluded at any time even from visits

There are no means of appeal, no tribunnals

MHA is determinable, and for treatment. Parent POWER as nearest relatives

MCA no such power, no status, exclusion at any time on the whim of a commercially aware care provider.

AND max avoidance of liability from MCA for any decision made by community care provider under MCA if they reasonably believe in patient’s best interests no such provision in MHA.


As today ,the Labour Leader, leads his party conference on proposals to remove private school tax charitable status- effectively destroying them, leaving no choice, no competition and education at the mercy of any corporate body, with an overriding ethos of commercial awareness, not education and scant regulation , despite State financing on their activities .

THOSE parents, who pay for private education, do so out of taxed income and save the money the state would pay for their child’s education

Thus deceasing State input/deficit

If thought private education is better, then that is an indictment on the present state school system, where same amount is spent per pupil, which should be improved and regulated, rather than as now allowed huge profit from public money

No mention is made by labour of higher/further education ie universities paying no tax on huge revenue and buildings.

Labour appear the champions of the corporate monopolies and venture capitalists. Promoting self regulation. no choice and profit- a totalitarian educational profit making system

And appears to be acting with Boris, as he ploughed 14 billion State money into State schools last year

So, all is done to promote private state academies, with little regulation for their huge state budget, no competition and no parent voice, with a commercially aware overriding ethos.

So, all poltical parties are promoting state monopoly, no choice for max profit education, without any public representation possible in parliament. Such is democracy.

Below, a blog written by my daughter on her experiences three years ago, when it appears her private schools’ A LEVEL results were targeted.

I understand there are many students across Britain disappointed with their unfair A-level grades right now. However, these injustices are only being used to fulfil yet even more political agendas, where the root cause is never addressed.

Speaking as someone who’s gone to private school, and has faced injustices with the AQA marking system, as have my fellow pupils of the class of 2017, where my art class all received B grades, despite a range of ability, a partially blind man would notice, that remained unchanged even after two group appeals pushed by my headmaster (who left the school not a year later).

The only other private school’s art class in Sheffield also received an anomalously low range of results, that teachers did not even apply for a single appeal over, despite students’ concerns and disappointment. The same can be said with other Arts subjects where marking can be more subjective. This caused a notable dip in grades that could politically justify conversion to an academy status. Their Headmistress then received an MBE not a year later, despite several disillusioned students who unfairly missed out on their first-choice universities, receiving little more than indifference from tutors! One of my own 40 markers was left untouched and left me with an anomalous U grade for one of my Classics papers, several grades below my predicted grade B – it went to the same examiner for remark for which it then received a puny 3 marks!

It seems private schools, that particular year anyway, had been deliberately discriminated against politically, and there was nothing any of us could do about it!

Meanwhile, fixating on the class divide is not going to solve any problems. If there is disparity in quality of education between state and private, it does not highlight a privilege issue, but a commercial issue intrinsic in the education system that will only grow if privates are abolished, which seems to be the agenda, as there will be no choice in a corporate monopoly based on post code only.

Solely incompetence and snobbery? I see…
How reliable are algorithms which have also been used to assess students this year? I do not see these put under scrutiny. If the education system cares about the individual and them fulfilling their potential, they should have assessed more carefully students’ coursework and previous exam scores, that would give accurate guidelines for the individual’s academic ability and the grade they should have received in the end.

Moreover, how reliable are the politically correct soundbites that reverberate in the hollow social media chambers?

People have their different reasons for sending their child to private, that don’t necessarily need to be justified. Additionally, not all the parents are stonkingly affluent either, and have to make sacrifices to fund their child’s education.

Again, reducing the problem to class. Whether Labour or Tory gov, the ongoing problem will always be venture capitalist exploitation, syphoning public money into private coffers.
Personally, my parents chose to put me into private school when I was little, as it was the only way I could get away from an autism label, curtesy of my elder sister having severe autism. My opportunities to excel would have been diminished in a state school, as I would have been statemented and streamed into foundation classes in most likely ALL my subjects, no matter my ability. I would never have got my straight As and A*s at GCSE and an Oxford interview. Such is the discrimination against learning disabled in state education. Private schools don’t have the vested interest that state schools are corrupted with through extra funding for learning disabled, and the benefit reaped from their stunted education and lack of substantive scholastic achievements.

This year’s most recent and acute bout of unfair A-level marking that has apparently discriminated against state school students more based on algorithms that marry up their grade with their school’s collective lower average, seeks to put the nail in the private school coffin.

Such has been the case for years now, since Blair’s 2006 Charities Act, which removed fee-paying schools’ automatic charitable status. ‘Public benefit’ that charities must abide by has been criticised for focusing on activities more than charitable purpose.

The gun was firmly pointed at independent schools to toe the line.

By 2009 a private school was closed down every two weeks, after failing to prove their charitable status, through not reaching the set quota of bursaries they had to offer despite the fact they didn’t have the means to do so without raising fees that would put them out of business. If they didn’t pass the criteria of public benefit, the last category of which is vague, they could be easily closed down, without even going to court, illegally.

‘Independent schools can close at a moment’s notice’ – Mr St John Smith

One of the few private schools in Sheffield, Ashdell -a smaller prep school at that, (and therefore, one of the more vulnerable privates) had to merge with a bigger private school to save itself.

The price students have to pay for the orchestrated incompetence of their ‘cash strapped’ education system.
According to a Mail online 2010 article the government couldn’t actually afford to fund students still in the private education sector, as resources in state schools would be depleted. Since that article was published, Britain has faced austerity for ten years and is now officially in it’s worst recession on record. Therefore, does it make sense to put more pressure on public funding into states, if private schools are abolished?

‘Pressure’ being the operative word…

I will reiterate the crucial point; state schools receive just as much public money per pupil, as any individual paying to a private. Therefore, if states have the same money invested, why don’t they have the same value that our supposed ‘privileged’ schools have?

If there’s a disparity in quality of education between privates and publics, why doesn’t our government improve state education instead of focusing on removal of the last shrinking shred of independency and choice, that has value within the education system?

Boris Johnson has now, after ‘funding crisis‘ pledged £14 billion into states schools.

Out of our public deficit.

I wonder where that will go…

Yours truly,

My daughter’s profound thoughts on society on a visit to Chester

Who does Care ?- not the Gov NOT the NHS, not your neighbour the public

Living The Art Life

After a mini-break in Chester last week you would think I’d use this (mostly) art blog as a platform to showcase some of my snaps of the beautiful walled city; it’s fairy-lit alcoves and alleyways, the gothic Chester Cathedral and Tudor architecture or the boats traversing along the River Dee, maybe even the Instagram-worthy shot of my raspberry ripple ice-cream. All this framed by a blue sky and beating sun.

An overall enjoyable experience, yet, what I also took from the trip was a sense that dark shadows seem delineated amid the sunshine.

When briefly passing through the shallow underbelly of Chester, in what is more commonly known as an underpass, the shadow descended. From all angles, the harsh halogen light reflected off the perturbingly pristine white brick walls that narrowed towards the end of my vision, bringing my attention to one lone piece of graffiti at the side –…

Shillfield ?

My daughter has just arrived back from Sheffield City Centre

Where, whilst waiting for a delayed bus, she was regaled with 3 anti vax protestors . One, a young lad appeared ASD/LD and handed her three leaflets, the other remained silent whilst an older lady regaled with how the earth was flat and the Queen died in 2017.

She went on to say that all of the Royal Family are paedophiles, and that planes never flew into the Twin Towers on 9/11.

My daughter retorted these arguments would not help her cause and did she know of the yellow card system

She was silent despite it mentioned in her leaflets

Was she deliberately poisoning the anti vaccine protest well ?

Was she a paid crisis actor ?

Are these groups deliberately giving out valid leaflets of the dangers of vaccine and virus sabotaging their message ?

Are they in all cities at bus stops, train stations- anywhere with a captive audience

Who can we trust when our gov pays £320 million for a year long PR contract this year

And at Event 201, WEF told everyone to “flood the zone” even before virus announced.

Who do/can we believe with such mendacity?
