‘Independent Living’ –Disabled Penned for Profit

 

6ZFTC0V

If you asked anyone, where, they most wanted to live, and where, they would feel the safest, and happiest.

All would reply, if they could, within the bosom of their family.

This is why, a Private Members Bill, was put forward by Alf Morris, a Labour MP.

And despite opposition, by both Labour, and, a new Conservative government, became, the Chronically Sick and Disabled Act 1970.

It was the only, such Act in Europe, and, was heralded, the Magna Carta of the disabled.

The Act, placed a duty on Local Authorities, and NHS, to provide, in modern money, up to £164,000 per annum, for the social, and medical care, of the disabled.

If, a Local Authority, did not provide sufficient respite, house adaptations, medical equipment, care etc, parents/disabled, could  sue them,to pay for these  services.

This allowed, the disabled, to live, where they had always lived, with the friends, and family, they had known, and who had known them, since birth.

It also, prevented inadequate, unaccountable monopoly services.

Allowing families, and disabled, to obtain independent support, that fitted theirs, and the disabled’s needs.

The disabled could remain seen in the community, not, as they are now, herded in lines by chatting care workers.

Sadly, if parents found it impossible to cope, as they grew older, then, they could set up a trust fund, to pay state funds, to an independent provider, of their own choice, to care for their loved one.

But, 30 years on, under Tony Blair, the embryo of ‘Independent Living ’, was conceived, in academic publications.

Research, projected the figures, of older parents, who would be unable to cope, the disabled’s EU Right to ‘Independence’, was high jacked.

Housing away from their families became a priority for charities, LAs, and government.

https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=QY9Qp6JNL8UC&pg=PA1935&lpg=PA1935&dq=JAYNE+KNIGHT+AUTISM+MENCAP&source=bl&ots=O1ozxTtVYB&sig=2RYrzI_ELah1vdl0W6RCvTFGiYM&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjEof2XjJbOAhUIIsAKHfumASQQ6AEIITAB#v=onepage&q=JAYNE%20KNIGHT%20AUTISM%20MENCAP&f=false

All disabled charities, MENCAP, SCOPE, NAS, sang in unison, that ‘most disabled’ wanted independence, and, had a right to it,

Independence’, was perfunctorily construed, as  living away from parents, in  their ‘own’ home, regardless of  how many lived in this ‘home’, and, 24 hour supervision.

And, all a disabled person’s decisions, being made by the care provider.

This has been  renamed recently to ‘community living’.

A huge, profitable, largely unaccountable market, was there,  for the taking.

In 2010/11, the largest component of local authority expenditure on residential services for people with learning disabilities was on residential care placements (£ 1.55 billion), followed by supported and other accommodation (£483 million) and nursing care (£75 million). Supporting People expenditure in 2010/11 was £149 million.

The disabled were a goldmine, waiting to be mined.

Providers of independent living, could, not only claim, the huge amounts of money, made available from the government, under The Chronically Sick and Disabled Act, but also, the disabled’s state benefits, Disability Living Allowance, Mobility, Housing and Council tax Benefits, and Independent Living Fund.

And, better still, whilst the Local Authorities, again, on the back of cost cutting, did not provide specialist disabled care, the independent providers, were still allowed, to claim for such care, under the Act, on the basis, of the need, and severity, of each individual’s disability.

This gave a huge profit margin, at the disabled’s expense, as they received basic, non-specific care.

Worse still, the worse the disabled’s needs were made, the more, that could be claimed.

This was not a recipe for care, but persecution.

With enforcement by the Court of Protection, under the Mental Capacity Act,

‘Independent’ Living,  is now, effectively, the only option provided by Local Authorities, to a disabled adult.

in 2010/11, the largest component of local authority expenditure was on private, commissioned by LA, often enforced residential care placements (1.55 billion) for people with learning disabilities, followed by supported and other accommodation (83 million), and nursing care (75 million).

Supporting People expenditure in 2010/11 was 149 million.

Yet, see the map above, for the statistics of those still living with parents at 35, and not independently.

The Daily Mail lead on 5/11/16 that 25% of adults live with parents.

Yet our most vulnerable, who need their family most, are removed at 18, to 24 hour surveillance, not independence.

All overnight respite, and, day centre provision has been closed, on the excuse of cost cutting.

As services for disabled adults, are diversified, into this highly lucrative, ‘independent’ living industry.

The ‘Right’ to live ‘independently’ the only independence being forceful removal from family is the only ‘right’ promoted

https://rightsinreality.wordpress.com/2015/11/19/talk-to-housing-and-support-alliance-independent-living-conference/

Who would want a right to be encaged, all  choice removed, and forcefully medicated ?

Disability charities, have found it a godsend, as a much needed, reliable source, of permanent income.

And, international venture capitalists, pension funds, are investing in this new profitable sector.

Parents, wishing to keep their beloved, disabled children at home, have found it, effectively impossible.

They can no longer sue for the support; they are entitled to under the Chronically Sick and Disabled.

As, if they could afford the lawyers, and took the risk, of the Local Authority’s legal bill, the Authority would show, they were providing such support, through this independent living provision.

The Local Authorities, are ruthlessly enforcing such provision, by enforcement under the Mental Capacity Act, accusing loving parents, of incapacity, abuse, and neglect.

These parents are, not only, refused adequate support, and respite, but accessed covertly, as if they were, parenting a normal child.

All in breach of theirs, and their child’s human rights, Equality Act,  as discriminatory, and the Autism Act 2009 guidelines.

All disabled, now, effectively, belong to the state.

A state, that allows them no choice, and, no independence.

The disabled’s life, in  independent living provision, is prescribed, controlled, watched, risk assessed, and, most of all, commercially aware.

No longer are they protected, and happy, in the bosom of their family.

They are unseen, at the mercy, of any itinerant, poorly paid zero hour carer.

And with no escape.

They cannot return home.

They are only allowed out to prescribed venues, heavily guarded.

Families contact is controlled, and often, cut out completely.

The disabled become an audit statistic,  relied upon, to pay  owners, managers, venture capitalists, and shareholders.

We do not even have figures, of the number of disabled encaged.

And this is called ‘valueing’ people.https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/250877/5086.pdf

And, there is little, if any accountability, for the providers’ extortionately expensive services, or, the misery, and death, the disabled suffer in such provision.

We can only guess at it, from reports, that three learning disabled, die  needlessly a day.

Disability charities have removed the disabled, and their family’s voices, and replaced them by meaningless propaganda, sound bites, self-preservation, and slick websites, as they put their own recycled profit interests, above their beneficiaries.

Tiny Tim, would not now, be allowed to remain in the bosom of his family, because he is worth too much.

Acting out? – Dont worry we have medications for that!

This is a post from  Justice for Thomas Rawnsley’s blog.

With photos taken of Thomas,months before he died, in an Adult Treatment Unit in Sheffield, where he was taken after a carer, had said’ How many fingers can I break this time’, but was unable to as Thomas was double jointed.

After this, Thomas was found difficult to care for, so was sent to this ATU, where he was the only patient, and keeping it open, by his abuse, being used, to claim £4,500 per week for the ‘care’, evidenced by the beyond shocking photos taken.

Thomas in ATU on medication .

This is the unashamed use of the LA, and our government, of the most vulnerable for investment, and huge profit, using public funds, and breaching their statutory duty to care for them, but to claim the maximum money available under law for their ‘care’, on the basis of their ‘disbility’.

This is also 4 years after Winterbourne View was officially investigated.article-1392892-0C588EA900000578-684_468x286

Since then there has been more abuse, and death, for profit, of our most vulnerable.

The only move, via Norman Lamb, and LB Bill, is to move them out of NHS, MHA ‘care’/’treatment’, to LA, MCA ‘care’, for life in independent for profit living, with no reviews.

Thomas, was placed in such independent living accommodation, where he was abused, and from where, he was sent to an ATU, where he died.

Rip off social care.. the plight of the disabled family.

Friday 6th March

All is very bizarre,

All is very dire.

We, as always, are kept in the dark, until, whatever happens, happens.

As you can imagine, in between my waves of nausea, and caring for poor Issy, I have been kept, very busy, coping with officialdom.

I await the arrival of the other lady from the agency, who attends the social services’ weekly ‘surveillances’.

We had our 5 th ‘surveillance’, with our 2 social workers, two days ago, the sixth, next week, is the psychologist’s visit, to declare Issy a vegetable, and, observe her emotional state, and, no doubt, ours.

We are not told, nor dare ask, not that any definitive answer would be given, how long the ‘surveillances’ go on for.

It is now 11. 00 am, the lady was due at 10. 00am, so I assume, she is not coming.

She didn’t.

We have no timetable of hours.

Angel Eyes , has supported for three weeks, from 10-4 Monday, 10-3 Thursday.

We received an invoice, from the agency, for £710.50 for 50.75 hours support for February, at £14 per hour, yet Angel Eyes, is paid £8 per hour, and, no traveling expenses.

And, has to put her time sheets  online.

She also, appears, to organise support, and, inform us.

Personal ( direct payment ?) services, the basis, I assumed, this agency was paid on, allows £7.50 per hour, and a £30 per month administrative fee.

A little over half, of the agency invoice.

Adult services wouldn’t pay the £710.50, as the agency, is not approved by them

But, as the LA pay, are the source of all future lucrative, reliable business,and the piper that calls the tune.

The agency boss, assured us, he could have, our ‘pot of money’, held by the previous education package, (‘fist lady’ and co, no show), transferred over to his company.

Remember, the only alternative support, we were offered, was  ’ Fist Lady’, and,  new friend……

So, what can we do to be reimbursed this, and future support?

Sue the Local Authority, if we can find  the forms, pay the court fee, cope with the hassle, -service, posting etc, and  pay for the extra support, to attend court, and risk the LA’s legal costs, if we lose, which would be more, than the £720.

Courts are now profit making, and provide no legal advice, just an expensive, time consuming answering machine  service.

We have already paid out, £900 on officialdom.

No, we have no law, as, it cannot be enforced.

And complaints mechanisms are shut down on a court application.

So are living in the wild  west.

Just a reminder; the new agency support, is in lieu of Issy’s education, social care, respite, and NHS care.

Another reminder; we have had no overnight respite, other than, the three nights blogged in July 2014, and 3 evenings, in over 2 years.

The adult services lady told us, the insisted on, by social services agency  support, of 2 workers in the kitchen for  7 months, was to ‘interact’ with Isabel, as she fleetingly appeared in the kitchen for juice and food, and not to help me with cleaning  or even Issy’s personal care.

No one  knows, the role ‘support’ has, is it education, personal care, respite ?

Nor indeed, if they will turn up, or, leave, never, to be seen again.

Nor, more crucially,what the lies/spin, they report back to social services.

Do note, under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Act 1981, up to £82,000, can be claimed, legally, just for Isabel’s social care, and,a similar amount, from the NHS.

If Issy is in residential state care  over £4,000 will be paid to her private provider.

Hence, the push for Issy’s independent, away from family living, so this statutory entitlement,  in addition to  her benefits- housing, mobility, DLA, ILF, CA,can be claimed.

Clearly venture capitalists, have realised the autistic are a gold mine.

But has, or will, all this public money, help Issy ?

It hasn’t so far.

In fact it has caused her problems.

She is  still suffering, reignited post traumatic disorder, from her abuse in NAS care, exacerbated, by the fear of leaving her home, and, not returning, created by her first ‘education’ package, who informed her, she could not live with Mummy and Daddy.

As l write , Issy is echoing the words of the same NAS key worker, in the worker’s actual voice, replete with Yorkshire vowels, and, sneer.

Issy must have said to her, ‘Where is Mummy and Daddy?’,

the worker repeats this question, as Issy echoes, in the workers mocking voice,

‘Where’s Mummy and Daddy’, followed by a bellow of,

They’re not interested’.

What has been done about this abuse?

Nothing, as denied and usefully to justify antipsychotic medication, interpreted, as Issy  hearing voices.

Her 48 bruises in NAS residential school we declared and recorded for all time as self harm.

A National Autistic Society  claiming  £ 60,000 per annum, up until 24/5/2013, from the NHS, according to an NHS letter to me, despite the fact Isabel returned home, on the 29/1/2013, where she has never received any NHS care.

In addition, a further £60,000, for her education, as education and NHS paid 2/3rds of the £177,000,  ‘tax free’ per annum, paid to the National Autistic Society School as a charity.

There was no deduction the third of the year Issy was with us.

We paid NAS pocket money, and towards clothes.

All paid until May 2013, three and a half months, after Isabel returned home on 29 the January .

So much for cost cutting, value for money, and helping the disabled, and their family.

During these years, we were paid £20 per week Disability Living Allowance.

And still only this amount, for 4 months after Isabel had returned to live at home.

Isabel now receives £125 ( reduced to£105) DLA, and I receive £77 carer’s allowance ( reduced to £62.50p), no free nappies, no beds, no nothing….. Just the privilege now, of paying, through the nose,  for agency care.

Here are the statistics of number of hours of unpaid care by family.http://www.carersuk.org/news-and-campaigns/press-releases/facts-and-figures

Why can family carers not even claim any of their time caring, and worse still any  LA support is deducted from the disabled’s DLA.

Who’d  want to be a disabled family in this country, think of our plight, when ‘Pudsey Bear’ and ‘Children in Need’ come begging.

The door bell rings.

My heart leaps.

It’s difficult not to be paranoid, when you are secretly and silently surrounded.

But it’s just the nice post lady, a kind, familiar face.

And my fifth letter, 4 from the NHS hospital, and 1 personal one from the GP, about my failure to attend a Diabetic Eye Screening Appointment.

I have not got diabetes; even my 2 GP results 2 years ago were insufficiently raised.

I have no symptoms, but what does that matter.

Truth is irrelevant.

The box has been ticked.

Danger of EHCSs, and, Abuse of MCA Capacity for Adult Service Funding

blog-pictureSo let us explore, what appears, to be the Local Authorities practice, in relation to capacity assessments, since, the lucrative, ‘independent/community living’, away from family living industry was created.

Anyone, suspected of ‘incapacity’, all autistic, learning disabled, and, mentally disordered.

Including, potentially, anyone in need of ‘special’ education.

Funded under Education, Health, and Care statements.

Which unlike SEN, make the social services responsible for ‘protecting’ a child’s ‘welfare’.

So now, all ‘special needs’ children, are deemed  in need of the protection.

Discriminatory of parents and children,in breach of the Equality Act, and,s 8 Human Rights Act.

Strengthening a disabled’s  status, as a ‘child in need’, under the Children Act, see my article NLJ ‘The Disability Trap’.

EHCS,  also allow care, health, and educations distinct roles to overlap.

And,  their funding to be mixed and transparency even more obscured..

SEN/EHCS, do not apply to private schools.

So, the rich, can avoid, state intervention, and, are, allowed, their legal rights.

ECHS, do not fund schools after 16.

Instead, schools are replaced, by ad hoc education packages,consisting of skills for independent living, until 25..

These, combine support  at home.

And, these ‘education’ providers, unknown a family, will be charged  to notify social services, who approve them, of any ‘intervention issues’.

At 18, Adult Services fund everything.

As, the only  LA policy now, is life in  for profit, private residential care units.

All decisions are removed from the disabled, and their family by the MCA 05.

By showing  ‘incapacity’ to make  decisions.

So, the LA will insist,  a capacity test is carried out, before, providing any adult services.

So social services, will suggest, your young adult child see a psychologist.

This ‘seeing’ includes a capacity test, but, you are unlikely to be made aware of this and there appears, no duty on the local authority to inform you.

It can also provide, evidence of emotional abuse/neglect, to cut you out of your child’s life.

If you  ask for clarification of such assessments, and/or feel them unnecessary, the Local Authority, will apply to the Court of Protection, for an interim order under s 48 Mental Capacity Act 2005.

This application will be served, 24 hours before the court hearing.

Social services witness statements, in support, are not on oath, so not subject to the Perjury Act.

Matters to support this court intervention, can include any reported hearsay, from any source, care workers, GP, educators etc.

The first you may  know  of these ‘concerns’, will be 24 hours before the hearing.

No one is under a duty to discuss  concerns with you first and under a tightly prescribed, managed service will be told not to..

Despite Social Workers and Mental Capacity Act Codes of Conduct, and, the Human Rights Act.

The Local Authority will ask  the court for a list of expansive orders.

Including, any assessment and/or inspection, they wish.

If you do not agree, you may be warned your child could be taken that night.

So, you are given little choice.

This,  is all an abuse of the MCA, and its five overarching principles, and its Code of Conduct.

The MCA provides, ‘capacity’, must be assessed specifically, in terms of capacity to make a particular decision, at the time it needs to be made.

The LA,  will allege incapacity, in respect to the following decisions,

To litigate the proceedings

To make decisions about where they should live

To make decisions about the care they receive

To make decisions about the contact they receive from family members.

Clearly, only the first two, are in fact particular decisions, the others involve several particular decisions, should they have a bath, wash hair, brush teeth, depilate their arm pits etc.

Similarly, family members, are many decisions, to see mother, father, sister, brother, granny.

Remember the MCA provides an assessment should only take place,

‘At the time it (the decision) needs to be made’

But these decisions do not need to be made, at this, particular time.

Just because a person is 18, and now funded by adult services, a capacity test per se, is not allowed by MCA.

In relation, to the last three decisions, the disabled person, will have been making these decisions, all their life, whether to have a bath, sleep in thier home,  see their granny.

How can they suddenly become incapable of making these decisions, and, the LA make them for them for them, under the MCA?

How can an assessment be justified, when these disabled, have already made these decisions in the past.

And by making them, shown their ‘capacity’ to make them, just because LA funding, requires it?

In relation, to the remaining decision, capacity to litigate, no one, unversed in law, would have such capacity, and, in any event, it is not be necessary, if the other capacities  are present.

The MCA, was not drafted for the convenience of funding, only, independent living provision at 18, and enabling this by illegal removal from the family home.

The MCA was drafted, to protect a person, by allowing another person, to make a decision for them, in  the least restrictive way, and, as they thought, that person, would have made it, in that person’s best interests, if thought, that person, had become in capable of making that particular decision, and, it needed, to be made.

The MCA, was not drafted, to declare people ‘incapable’, and, allow all their future decisions to be made for them, for profit.

Or was it ?

Illegal MCA and Capacity Tests, and Lucrative Vegetables.

quote-god-has-so-framed-us-as-to-make-freedom-of-choice-and-action-the-very-basis-of-all-moral-william-mathews-371165

The Mental Capacity Act was drafted to protect and empower.

Instead, it is illegally being used to remove all the rights of the deemed ‘incapable’.

To obtain a capacity order, all a Legal Authority needs is a box ticked by anyone, normally a GP,  that they ‘suspect’ a person, incapable.

Effectively, in their opinion, unable to retain information.

So beware of the Alzheimer tests, GPs are now paid, to provide.

Yet, if a person is autistic,  the assessor likely to be GP and/or social worker will only have physically examined, or seen the autistic, have no knowledge of autism and have based their opinion on a  discriminatory  view, of the autistic’s appearance and condition, such an assessment illegal under the MCA.

So much for the National Autistic campaigns and expensive education.

To say nothing, of all our high flown rhetoric, on diversity and equality.

The Court of Protection, on the basis of this perfunctory over sight, will then issue a  48 MCA capacity order without sight of the autistic, or information from those, he has lived with all his life.

This order will be enforced on an interim basis on threat of removal of the alleged incapable despite this being illegal under the MCA, which only has jurisdiction, if a person is incapacitated.

A psychiatrist, or more likely a psychologist,titles matter, will perform another standard tick box test, family might be consulted, but will not take part in the decision making process, despite assisting, and witnessing their child make such decisions, all their life.

Unlike his family, the ‘experts’, will not have seen, the soon to be incapacitated, before the assessment day, and, will know little of the autistic mind, or even, autism.

Actions of the autistic in the past, that show ability to want, and be able, to make decisions, like living at home, will be ignored.

We have no statistics, of how many, if any, manage to pass the test.

Assessors,are paid, chosen, and remitted by the Local Authority, who now, only provide adult services for those in, or destined for, independent living, where the maximum profit can be made, from them.

A clear conflict of interests.

If the LA fail to find an assessor, the official solicitor will then find one, and deem it even more credible, as independent.

Once tick boxed, ‘incapable’.

You’re loving, full of personality and fun son, daughter or granny, becomes a non-person.

A vegetable.

Non sentient.

Incapable, in law, of even being aware of what is happening to them.

Incapable of remembering, anything.

The perfect victim.

But capable of making millions for their encaging private corporations.

Lady Hale, chillingly alluded to this, when she said, just because a person cannot appreciate, they are living in a cupboard, does not mean, it is not a deprivation of liberty.

But can a court remove all a disabled persons rights?

Yes.

Is this, not the worst form, of disability discrimination?

Yes.

Is it not in breach of the person’s Magna Carta right not to lose his liberty except by trial by his peers?

Yes.

The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Art 12 provides, that states party to it, UK is, should replace legislation that provides for substitute decision-making for incapacitated adults based on, ‘what is believed to be in the objective ‘best interests’ of the person concerned, as opposed to being based, on the person’s own will, and preference.

The government has so far done nothing, to repeal the MCA, but, the Court of Appeal has endorsed the Article, as having persuasive authority, as an aid to interpretation of it.

A study of the implementation of article 12 on the decisions of the learning disabled which usually includes the autistic shows it is not being implemented in UK in health or care settings.

Instead, substitute decision making takes http://www.publichealthreviews.eu/upload/pdf_files/12/00_Werner_S.pdf place.

http://www.publichealthreviews.eu/upload/pdf_files/12/00_Werner_S.pdf place.

And even without considering  Article 12, particular weight, must be placed, upon the incapacitated wishes and feelings, in determining where their best interests may lie, Peter Jackson J  Re M (Best Interests: deprivation of liberty order [2013] EWHC 3456 (COP).

So why is it happening to millions?

Profit.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Is this the photo of a vegetable ? Does she look non sentient?

Tomorrow I Will be Gagged. A true stitch up.

article-2591240-0000D25100000CB2-472_306x174

We contact a solicitor, who recommends a barrister, who is in fact a solicitor.

We ring her.

We are not entitled to legal aid.

She offers to half her usual rate to the Legal Aid rate.

It will cost £500, to consider the papers, and attend tomorrow’s hearing.

We are desperate.

I have ceased to function.

My husband  take the papers to the solicitor I contacted to scan to the barrister (solicitor).

She asks court for an adjournment to a later time/date as we have only just got the papers.

But they will only postpone until 12pm tomorrow.

Yet, the in application, the hearing date was on the March 10th.

Without our knowledge .

Only 3 days before the social services manager had asked, ‘What they could do to rebuild our trust?’.

No concerns about our care of Issy,  had ever been raised and there was not even a hint that court proceeding would ever be applied for, yet the Local Authority a hearing date of the 10th March.

Now, I see the lodge lady, and a nice lady had always been a set up to get evidence for intervention in March when their education funding ceased, but Issy had almost walked down the close.

Lodge lady  etc must have felt Issy out of the house would weaken the case so a non existent punch was alleged.

I wondered how many of more applications  had  been prepared ?

One in April 2014 when Issy was traumatised, her NAS PTSD reignited and exacerbated  by her being told and hearing discussions, that she could not live with Mummy and Daddy.

And I put up a  fight, and, revealed their sexed up  core assessment, and spying education team and withdrew the needed parent consent to the education package.

Then  a new attack in the guise of new, ‘unspying’  agency  workers.

Unknown to me lead by a trainee social worker. ‘Who was a good ‘motivator’.

And then there had been a secret social worker as part of a chaotic 15 worker, uncoordinated 3 night respite team, when I was not supposed to be at home. They hoped for an emergency admission via MHA section to a CAMHS/NHS ‘acute pathway centre.

And the 8 month agency support surveillance by the said trainee and additional previous student/agency support, newly qualified social worker was probably stopped by this blog, scaring off their large well known, ‘reputable’ agency in October.

And then, the last, very sly, sideways attack, by a purported ‘independent’, personal services education package, recommended by the LA who had spent hours of meetings to regain ‘our trust’ convincing us that they had the skills to get Issy out of the house again.

But were in fact, the most vicious Trojan horse.

So desperate for a quick and conclusive result they couldn’t wait to say that, loving, weary, self sacrificing  parent had punched their cherished daughter in the stomach..

All this ‘support’ had cost tens of thousands of our council tax money, to stitch up, and lie about loving parents, fighting, for their disabled daughter’s happiness, and coping with her state abuse.

A daughter, who had been all her life, horribly abused by the state for millions.

So, they could make even more money, £4,500 + per week in independent living and pharma kickbacks.

Social workers are under a duty in their Code of Conduct to keep a family together, and respect  Human Right to privacy and a family life.

So all is illegal but still the courts rubber stamp.

The only email I receive from our barrister ( solicitor) of substance, is about my blog.

She  suggests I voluntarily agree not to mention details of the proceedings, or anything more relating to Isabel in my blog, or on any social media.

The Local Authority solicitor  had said the same in his letter with the court papers.

Yet, the actual court application states the actual legal prohibition, that I not to mention Issy’s name, and address.

I  instruct my solicitor, to expressly request,  as all the details are already in the public domain via the blog the judge open up the proceedings.

Particularly, as it has been shown that a carer had maliciously make up a story of abuse, and neglect , there is a long history of us being targeted by the social services and Isabel has been badly abused by the state , now and in the past, so such exposure is not only in her best interests but the publics.

As this appears to be happening throughout the country to  all autistics, and mentally disordered as the only adult services support is removal to residential care.

And, there is a conflict between the agencies and the LA and Isabel’s interests as huge sums of money will be paid for her ‘care’ so transparency of process is essential to ensure a fair hearing.

But our solicitor didn’t make any of these points to the Judge.

I had interviewed a private autistic specialist care agency.

They start tomorrow.

If only,  and why did I not do this over a year ago.

Trust of state, fear, lack of information, I don’t know.

The order is an interim one, to remove Isabel, deprivation of liberty, and stop all contact with us, and, as you can imagine the statements from the carers are spun, cue seeking trivia, and lies.

….. this could remove your child for ever, as this is the purpose of ‘support’ in 2015……george-orwell-5.

Education Report, ‘A Red Mark The Size of a Fist’

4508491-Small-and-powerful-fist-on-a-white-background-Stock-PhotoIt is Thursday 29/1/2014.

What a long, long, week.

As if being up at nights for months, with no personal care, or respite for over 2 years wasn’t enough.

I am now being tortured by the social services.

The snow is thick, my husband had to take the bus to work.

Issy was up at 11.00am, and eventually after much effort in the bath.

And, I managed to get photos of her stomach..

It would appear, all those in need of support, are at the mercy, of any itinerant, zero hour, or, unpaid placement stranger,apparently, desperate, to do the State’s dirty work.

A friend in London told me, carers in care homes, demand ‘protection money’, from relatives.

What a disgusting moral compass is now the norm.

The snow has conspired, to make even walks down the drive scary, Issy doesn’t like slippyness.

Just before noon, the ‘funding lady’, our social workers manger’s manager rang me.

The last thing my psyche needed after Issy’s bath at a moment when she was demanding never ending juice and I was alone.

With the usual infuriating, social worker prescribed conversation,

How are things?’.

You surely must know how things are’. I replied.

You will know more than me, about what’s happening’.

The nice affable lady, did not turn up on Tuesday two days ago, and the Lodge Lady hasn’t today’.

‘We received no prior, or post notification, or indeed, any communication from anyone.’

Except from our adult social services social worker, and GP, demanding to see a non- existent lump on Issy’s tummy’.

This is the ‘intensive, specialist, highly expensive service’, provided to an autistic girl, not yet out of the trauma, the state, for the second time, threw her in’.

The funding lady, then tells me, I have ‘strong opinions’, and, the workers had not felt ‘comfortable’ in the house.

I countered.

They had not mentioned or looked as if they were ‘uncomfortable’.

Let alone why .

Its non- stop coffee, tea and chats, magazines, and two books on autism lent, and, never  returned.

And, they do what they want with Issy.

I have spent the last two years, having all my cupboards rearranged, without asking, and my washing machine broken.

Being a complete tit, I have given away dresses, shoes, coats, tops, CD radios, face creams, shears, masses of legal advice etc. mainly to the lady, who had the first hissy fit.

10 Nintendo games to another worker who befriended Issy, groomed me, and after an outing with him, Issy  repeatedly asked,’ Why do men like having willies up their arse?’.

He was never seen again, as not offered ‘education’ work, (more money and security).

Poor Issy has been so let down, by the itinerancy of workers, but, her fate would be much worse in ‘independent’ living.

And,Lodge Lady ( the latest since November education support worker), had arrived daily, with a Private Eye, or, internet article, or, own experience of a care scandal, to elicit/encourage my ‘strong opinions’.

I remind the funding lady,

‘as zero hour workers, every worker can be specifically chosen, and prescribed’.

She retorts, ‘they are all individuals’.

So the inference is  the 30 +  previous agency workers,  must all have felt ‘uncomfortable’…. For 18 months…. but this, was the first I’d heard of it.

She tells me the affable, independent of the state, with a conscience lady, does not want to support Issy anymore.

So why did she choose Monday, without  warning to leave ?

Why did she make me chutney and chat so freely never mentioning her ‘uncomfortability’.?

It was a  loss,  as she loved the autistic, and Issy liked her.

But she had said ominously, she, ‘had nothing to do, with ‘education’’.

Now, we know why.

I assume, she didn’t want to get involved in their dirty tricks, of the lucrative, independent of family living, industry.

I noticed the nice  workers disappeared.

One, had a two week mystery illness, just when the trainee and social workers, were moving in for the kill, but, had a hissy fit, never to return.

I suspect, their reputable international agency, were worried about bad PR, from this blog.

Their head office, monitors the net, and had picked up my mention of their name, as a zero hour employer, in a Guardian comment, and, had banned me, from naming them on social media.

Such is the self- preservation, of our all-powerful, privatised monopolies.

The funding lady asked, if I  would consider, having Lodge Lady, and a new worker.

I told her to read my blog, and then objectively decide, whether, she would.

She replied she didn’t read blogs.

Issy was demanding juice, the bath was run….  I did not need this.

I mentioned all this.

Which she must have already been aware of from Issy’s shouts.

Eventually, I forced an exit.

But the phone rang 20 minutes later.

She had read my blog.

And  some points were incorrect.

It was not the Adult Social Worker, who had rung the GP, but her.

So much, then for her asking last week, what she could do, to rebuild my trust in the social services.

But, did not explain why the GP, had given the social workers name.

Nor why, the same social worker, rang us earlier reporting the lump.

Nor, why  this was so important.

Secondly, she said the blog incorrectly stated the support worker, had not discussed her concern, when she had.

I said, read the blog again.

The worker had pointed  out a non-existent bulge.

And then, when I, and the affable lady, had said it was pre period swelling, had said no more about it during the 4 hours that remained of her shift.

She had not pointed out,‘ a red mark, the size of a fist’ as was reported to the GP.

I couldn’t bear this  cross examining sophistry any longer.

And Issy needed attention.

Why was no one concerned about her ?

‘For the mother of God’, I cried.

And Issy on cue, decided the phone had to go back in its place, and grabbed it.

That night, I reflected, on what the GP had actually, been told.

I had been distracted by the impaction discussion, and the bulge comment.

I  analysed the reported ‘concern’,

‘A red mark on the side of Issy’s tummy, the size of a small fist’.

I realised, it  wasn’t  describing a bulge,

It  painted, a shocking picture, of abuse.

It could not be accidental, self-harm, or, neglect.

It was on  soft tissue.

It could only be…………… a punch.

And, as small, my fist,  as the primary carer, and most alone with Issy.

Wow…..

How might this be made to appear in court documents;

An education worker, who had formed a good relationship with Issy over several weeks of support, and, had just managed to get her out of the house for the first time in 9 months, noticed a red, fist sized mark on the side of Isabel’s stomach.

She pointed it out to her mother, who ignored her.

So she reported it to the social services, who rang the parents, but they would not let them see Isabel, so they rang the GP, but the parents also refused the GP’s request to come to their home and examine her.

The GP, now very concerned for Isabel’s safety, arrived at their home, he was verbally attacked by the mother, didn’t manage to  examine Isabel, as she refused to undress, or cooperate.  (but did see her running around happy not in pain).

The mother then refused any more support, or engagement with the social services’.

I had walked right into that one…..

If I did nothing, as photos can be air brushed, this would be taken, as irrefutable evidence of a vicious assault.

And we would be cut out of Issy’s life for ever.

The LA would have their £6,000 +a week, cash and pharma cashcow, the Lodge Lady a career path, a loving devoted mother  destroyed, and a father heartbroken, never to see their child again unsupervised.

And Issy doomed to live in an abusive hell, alone.

Such is evil.

Such is morality.

Such is adult state protection costing millions

And  the danger of care/education workers.

I rang the GP, apologised, and, asked him round to try to re -examine Issy…..

He arrived but did not touch her stomach only viewed for marks

Yet recorded later in her medical notes that there was no hot bulge on her stomach.
