Spring

IMG_0390It is spring, the gardener is back.

He has observed Issy through the windows, and, in the garden.

I had briefly mentioned our predicament.

But as usual, he makes no enquiry of her.

I ask how his Christmas went, he returns the curtesy.

The social necessity of a favourable reply irritates.

‘It wasn’t that good’, his ‘oh’ expression, encourages me to continue,

‘ Issy might be taken; she is worth £4,000 a week’.

His head cocks slightly, but his fixed richter grin, does not falter.

I go back in.

Furious, amazed, humiliated.

No words express, invisibility.

He boasted he was a devote Christian.

‘See how they love one another’, must be reserved for the chosen.

I email the social worker, to check if they are coming, they say yes.

Both arrive, as usual on Wednesday.

They ask what day time activities we’ve arranged for Isabel.

I had emailed the only day centre provision that was closeish.

Isabel is generally in a better mood, and Angel Eyes has managed to read and colour with her.

She rushed down the path with me to pay the window cleaner, but is still reluctant to put her coat on and go out.

All is spring.

All is uncertain.

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 Cambian owned ;community living Kingdom House in Sheffield, where he was taken after a long history of care abuse involving one carer,who 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 £12500 per week for the ‘treatment’, evidenced by the beyond shocking photos taken.

Thomas  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. And ASD/LD are now only being admitted to private hospitals like CYGNET/PRIORY group

Thomas, was placed in such independent living accommodation, where he was abused, and died.

A Surprisingly Good Visit from NHS Mental Health

IMG_0391This day proved a welcome relief, in a life of no reliefs.

The psychiatrist, a tall, attractive Scottish lady, was extraordinarily human, unassuming, and affable.

And the psychologist, unlike some I’ve taught, and the one in 2007, did not observe, or judge me, and had personality.

And, usefully, busied herself with Isabel’s Progress File from Robert Ogden School.

So, all went well in the kitchen.

So well,  two hours flew by without coffee.

I cannot relay, how good it feels, to be respected, and deferred to.

It had never happened before.

I almost felt like a person, rather than the object of negative analysis.

Issy had been up most of the night and was still sleep.

The long awaited period was evident, when we eventually wondered into her bedroom, andwere told to get out.

As usual, no one appeared to know anything,  so were filled in on the chronology to date.

The psychiatrist asked about food preferences, medical allergies and medication.

Worryingly,the type of questions asked before an inpatient stay.

I hoped,they were standard, but then wondered why, the information was not obtained from Isabel’s medical records.

But such are the mysteries of information sharing protocols.

Annoying for us, and professionals

The only major worrying question, on reflection was,

‘Did Issy eat with us?’

My proven justifiable  paranoia, bounced me back, to our first education package, and a comment, I had made to a Reed agency education carer, who’d latterly became a spy.

It was innocuous enough, but, it appears anything, can be made to fit the agenda.

On describing Issy’s trauma, after her 48 bruise NAS restraint, I remarked, ’Issy  would no longer sit and eat with us at the table in our apartment lounge in Ireland’.

This appeared to have been seized upon, by the worker’s grilling ‘education’ boss, and  relayed to our social worker and spun in  our last core assessment to;

It has been observed by workers that the family tend to sit around the table together to eat while Isobel eats alone in the lounge’

I complained about this in April 2014, pointing out, it could not ‘have been observed by workers that the family tend to sit around the table to eat’ as;

a) No worker has ever seen us eat as a family.

And,

b) We do not ‘eat as a family’, except at Christmas and Easter; the drop leaf table in the kitchen being rarely used.

We eat from plates on our knees, in the lounge, watching TV, as we are soap fans,

And

c) Issy has never eaten in the lounge.  She  eats in her bedroom.

It had been made in a sectionheaded Comment on the young person’s needs in relation to family and social relationships, thus, the workers impossible observation, of our deliberate isolating of Issy, appearing evidence of  emotional abuse.

This being one of the very, if only specific questions asked of Issy, and coupled with ‘ I wouldn’t like crumbs in the sitting room’ was both infuriating and worrying.

As it appeared information we had tried to officially correct and was incorrect second hand hearsay, as no worker had ever seen us eat let alone at a table, had been relayed to a NHS psychiatric team charged with assessing  any  emotional abuse of Issy at home.

Excepting for this rather large ponderable,- where they working from a crib sheet ? all went well.

Angel Eyes appeared on Monday and Thursday.

And as usual was a star, and worked her socks off.

Issy has been up, and in a good mood, despite the period.

But wants to be permanently tickled.

But then, who doesn’t?

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

ghost

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.

Issy  in nursery

Standard Capacity Assessments, Stephen Hawking would fail, without his box.

The mental health industry is awash with captive consumers, who have never even engaged with their capacity assessment under the Mental Capacity Act.

This is illegal but this is how it happens.

Let us explore, what happens, on the day your loved one, is declared effectively, a vegetable and loses his right to make any decision. for the rest of his life.

The psychologist/ assessor, the MCA does not stipulate who can assess capacity it appears anyone can, will attend the autistic and or learning disabled young adult or confused granny.

And, most likely be ignored.

The autistic may take an interest in their name, name tag, earrings, lipstick, pen, but then go back to their DVD, computer, or, just want juice.

The assessor may say words to the effect,

I have come to see whether, or not you want to represent yourself in court, so that your best interests/ what is best for you in the future, can be decided by an important person, called a judge’.

The first decision, an autistic, learning disabled or granny must be found ‘incapable’ of making.

The autistic will remain unresponsive with blank eyes, that hide so much, as would the author of, ‘Through The Eyes of Aliens’ a highly intelligent, mute autistic.

Who, most likely could be found ‘incapable’ had she not written an academic book.

By now, the vulnerable person, who rarely sees people will be feeling threatened by a stranger in his personal space asking him a question, which means little to a non- autistic.

He will want to be alone to comfort himself in the autistic world, where he alone resides.

So he will tell him to go away, get out of his room and become agitated.

The assessor will leave as his training is ever  risk  averse and he knows nothing, of this particular autistic’s behaviour or habits.

What will happen then?

The MCA Code of Practice provides;

4.57 There may be circumstances in which a person whose capacity is in doubt refuses to undergo an assessment of capacity or refuses to be examined by a doctor or other professional.

In these circumstances, it might help to explain to someone refusing an assessment, why it is needed, and  the consequences of refusal.

But threats, or attempts to force the person to agree to an assessment are not acceptable..

No one can force an assessment, unless, there are serious concerns about mental health, and the Mental Health Act can be invoked, as he is a danger to himself, or others’.

As by s1 MCA and the common law a person is capable and has autonomy over what happens to him.

But here is the shocker…

A person can be assessed as lacking capacity to refuse or agree to a capacity test.

As 4.58 Code of Practice provides, 

  ‘If the person lacks capacity to agree or refuse, the assessment can normally go ahead, as long as the person does not object to the assessment, and it is in their best interests’.

But how, is it possible for a person, to lack capacity to agree or refuse  an assessment but still  have sufficient capacity to object to the same assessment ?

Isn’t ‘objecting’ the same as ‘refusing’?

This makes no sense.

And surely if he refuses to engage is this not ‘objecting to the assessment’?

He has a right to refuse/object, as  he is presumed  capable under the Act.

But, despite this, the Code provides, ‘the assessment can then normally go ahead’.!

But, what is this ‘assessment’ that now goes ahead and what is it based on?

And, as consent, from a  capable person, must be obtained, to any assessment, this assessment would be a trespass to the person.

To say nothing of a breach of his human rights.

And, if it did go ahead, is effectively non existent.

As it, and the  assessment of the person’s incapacity to consent could  only be based under the MCA the functional test.

And, this,  in the circumstances,  as no questions have been asked of the assessee can only be based on, the autistic’s  general presentation and the condition , which is illegal, under the MCA.

And where does this fit in with s1 MCA which declares that there is a presumption of capacity until proved otherwise.

And highly discriminatory so likely illegal under the Equality Act.

And, in breach of the guidelines set out in statutory form in the Autism Act 2009, which would allow a judicial review of any assessment.

Also, this could only be a functional assessment, based on, the autistic’s failure to engage.

Also based on the autistic’s condition and presentation.

Ilegal under the MCA.

In fact this test, would not even. provide evidence, of suspected/alleged incapacity, let alone, amount to a formal capacity test, accepted by the court of protection, as rebutting evidence to  remove the presumption of capacity, given at common law, and in the Act.

In any event, the MCA capacity test per se, is not, applicable to the autistic mind, and is meaningless to the autistic.

And, thus proves nothing.

We also have the problem that many rightly believe autism is not an ‘impairment of the mind’ and therefore not covered by the MCA.

Yet, worryingly, and illegally, the Standard Assessment of Capacity Record to be completed by the Local Authority guidance allows for such assessments as it commences as follows;

The assessment should end if the person is unable to progress through the functional test. For example if a person cannot understand the decision they will not be able to retain it, weigh it in the balance or meaningfully communicate a decision’.

To obtain a Capacity Order, from the Court of Protection, the Local Authority need to show suspected incapacity by, stating the functional test, is satisfied.

Again, in respect to autistics, the suspicion, is normally based on the autistic’s condition, and presentation, and assessments, based on such evidence, are  not allowed, per se.

The guidance then continues,

The important point is to provide evidence that you have put the decision that needs to be made to the person,. and what their response is using direct quotes and or a description of their reaction.

If they cannot due to the level of impairment process the information there is nothing to be gained by continuing’.

Wow.

Local Authorities, do not even have to administer the functional test, to render a person incapable.

So back to our autistic/granny being assessed, the assessor can read out the questions, be ignored, and then state in his Record of Assessment Form, that the response was silence, and render this person, incapable of making any decision for the rest of his life.

And  it appears, from the guidance to the Standard Assessment Form, there is nothing about the fact, the assessment must be conducted under the best possible circumstances for the asssessee, having regard to, his state of mind, physical ease, to enable, the maximum possibility of capacity being found, as required by s1 MCA.

All  the assessor needs to show, by ticking the boxes on a standard form, is that a meaningless process, has taken place.

How easily assessors earn their money.

How shocking, effectively anyone, but particularly the autistic, could lose the right, to make any decision, for life on the basis of an illegal, meaningless, non assessment.

Even, Stephen Hawking, had he not been fitted with a voice box, would, it appears, have been deemed ‘incapable’.

But not if you are autistic.

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 ?

The Age of The Scavenger.

Z9320472-Scavengers_on_a_carcass-SPL

We live in the age of the scavenger.

Frightened, greedy, insecure, in debt.

http://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/video/uk-personal-debt-almost-equivalent-to-2012-gdp/vi-BBssmxO?ocid=spartandhp

You, your children, partner, parents, its prey.

And, you will be powerless.

Here, is how they do it.

Scavengers know, that control, secrecy, surveillance and connection are essential.

They are smiling, plausible, psychopathological shape-shifters.

They work through social workers,  GPs, hospitals, police stations, health visitors, counsellors, neighbours, teachers, protection officers, care agencies, community groups, charities.

Through secret networkers and leadership.- common purpose.

All are  controlled by the state, work in secret and illegally share all ‘information’ through Multi Agency Safeguarding Hubs, agencies and community action groups.

Even our most trusted charity The Samaritans, is now controlled by the state, and details of the desperate  revealed to the authorities for forced lucrative private mental services interventions.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/01/fears-move-samaritans-pass-details-vulnerable-cases/

Even our suspicious, isolated, secretive, scared public, are social wardens.

Seeking state approval, money and power.

And many volunteer in NHS, police, schools,  community care desperate to please for employment.

The targets, as with all vultures are the vulnerable in need.

The poor, sick, old, disordered.

And, scavengers,  need to continually find new prey.

So they create vulnerability.

By 375 mental disorders, behavioural problems, increased poverty, more autistics, diabetics, and alzheimers.

And woo, through awareness campaigns, prevention,health checks, counselling, kindness, social groups, and, concern.

They target, objectifise, and subject their prey to the most solicitous, form of covert surveillance.

With 6 million itinerant carers, data bases, centralised medical, MASH, education, and social records .

Fishing expeditions are launched, to gain the ‘evidence’  they need.

This is build up on a  perfunctory, cumulative basis to fit the crime.

The crime, is always vague, expansive, and subjective.

And now even pre-emptive.

Those ‘at risk’ only targeted.

Neglect , controlling behaviour, emotional abuse,  sexual assault from innuendo, a drink is alcoholism, a scratch self-harm, forgetfulness incapacity,And any innocuous activity, is made to tick the box.

And, before you discover their surveillance, they use the law to swoop.

And then, it’s too late.

All they need now, is a rubber stamp.

All becomes unstoppable process.

Reality is suspended.

Mental Capacity Act interim  orders, will be the first you know, that you will lose your loved one.

Emergency protection care orders, your baby.

You will get no help.

All are frightened.

The system is inquisitorial, and so clogged up, and systemically bias it can do little.

Any allegation is accepted, without proof.

Justice, itself is  a scavenger,  it needs to be profitable.

The lawyers, scavenge the desperate, impotent, and ignorant.

And facilitate an inquisitorial process.

That cannot be beaten.

Those paid to protect the vulnerable, official solicitors, and CAFCASS officers, do the same.

They have no option, but to believe, the state always acts,  in a vulnerable person’s ‘best interests’.

Even though, that ‘best interest’, will make billions for the state.

The appalling conflict of interest, the elephant in the court room, is ignored.

All can act with impunity, as all is unaccountable, and in secret.

The commodity is adopted, the Local Authority pockets £30,000, and/or  £1000  per week for the fostering industry,£4,000  for the care home .

Those tick boxed ‘incapable’ imprisoned for life.

Every decision made for them by their private provider for ever more profit.

At the mercy of a secret, unaccountable care provider.

An audit statistic, worth on average  £3,500 per week.

In its first 3 years to 2010, the Court of Protection, took control, of assets worth over  £2.3 billion.

And, in its first 18 months received 3,000 complaints, all in secret.

Potentially, more than 2 million, could lose their liberty under the Mental Capacity Act.

Without their Magna Carta right to be tried by their peers.

Dementia, Carers Act, the latest facilitates to harvest.

GPs, now paid to assess dementia risk by stealth, on routine check ups.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3409468/How-medical-history-hold-key-dementia-risk.html

And, the child care industry, has increased its numbers, from 32,000 in 2009, to 82,000.

Read this PhD on forced adoptions published in 2016 http://repository.essex.ac.uk/17072/1/Sam%20Davey%20Thesis%20Final%20Final.pdf

We do not know the numbers of old, autistic and learning disabled, encaged, unseen, in residential private profit ‘care’.

And at September 2016 The Alzheimer’s Society reported Deprivation of Liberty Orders from the Court of Protection are at an all time high.

I Smell a Rat……

the-procession-of-the-trojan-horse-in-troy-1773_jpgLarge-615x290

Angel Eyes is gone.

I smell a rat.

She said, she’d see me on Monday.

We’d had a great afternoon on Thursday, dying my hair.

But  her boss rang on Saturday.

Angel Eyes, couldn’t do anymore shifts, as she’d lose her tax credits .

Not even a single hour ?

Why then,was she the only worker offered.

When she and her boss arrived 5 days ago, in answer to my email?

And, why didn’t she/he, mention her tax credits, on offering her hours?

Or , she in  her long chats on Thursday.

More crucially, where do we go from here?

Only one other agency, got back.

And they too, could be nobbled.

I analyse, my conversations, with Angel Eyes.

She came on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

I recall, she only started asking  odd questions on Thursday.

Lodge/Fist lady, had done the same, despite my garrulous outpouring of Issy information.

At the time, they had irritated, and upset me.

She had opened her arms to offer a hug

I’d asked why the lists of questions, she’d said, she wasn’t good at conversations.

I’d felt guilty.

I now, reflect on Angel Eye’s questions.

I feel like Miss Marble.

And annoyed, I am forced to be so paranoid.

But this de facto beleaguerment, is worse than fiction.

Do you like a drink?’

‘Are you frightened of Issy ?

‘All this is bound to put a strain on your relationship (with Seamus)’.

How does Issy get on with her sister Eleanor, oh, I have already asked you that one’.

All innocuous enough.

But now, indicative of a fishing brief..

I  think of the many poor homes, unable to buy  arrays of cleaning products, without space, clothes, bedding, and healthy food,surrounded by neighbours too willing to spy.

They are sitting ducks.

So Angel Eye’s boss arrived last night, to finalise the ‘package’.

He is now our ‘Measured Lady’.

I ask why our pot of money, cannot be given to us, to find support.

He blinds me with science, and stonewalling.

How can this be personalised services?

He shows me the CV a lady, sent to him in November, and emphasises, she works ‘independently‘, for an old couple.

He arranges a visit .

As usual, more time is wasted on administration, and, needless introductions, than support.

He spouts the standard tripe, of needing to find someone, we are happy with.

But, as with Measured Lady, there is no other candidate.

I don’t know what to say.

There, are the usual awkward silences.

I explain my dilemma.

But, the elephant in the room is ignored.

The lady is coming tonight.

The social  workers tomorrow,

For their weekly ‘surveillance’, as the package boss calls it.

Nice life.

Issy sleeps, and is happy.

Apparently, largely irrelevant, but a good little earner.

More Lies, to steal Issy, and cover up inadequate, spying education services .

bigstock-magglass

Beyond  fed up.

Can’t  say depressed, as it would be used against me.

I now have to try, to get Issy back to the position, she was in, before, the ‘red mark, the size of a fist’ lady, abandoned her.

And, lodge another official complaint.

And do this, in between, the waves of horror, and nausea, that wash over me, when I envisage Issy’s fate.

Which are even more intense, when she is near.

The latest letter, one of the many documents, I have found, almost impossible to read.

Is from, the assistant head of the LA services.

The one, who recently rang weekly, and, informed me, why the education package, fist lady and co, had disappeared.

She was the funding lady, in the kitchen, who informed us, the LA, would provide  education ( Measured Lady),with ‘our pot of money’, for ‘personal services’.

We paid handsomely, as no doubt did the public purse.

The measured lady, had said, it ‘wouldn’t be cheap’,

For what ?

4 months of meetings arranging it, a no show hardly for 2 weeks, by one PA.

And then to be spied on, lied to,  and, about, and finally accused of assaulting our daughter.

All behind our backs.

This services manager, insists, she rang the GP.

But the GP, gave the adult services social worker’s name.

The Service Manager, ( her boss),had dealt with our complaint, by choosing, ‘not to look at the ‘record’ first’.

And, then sent us a letter, not about our complaint.

But her ‘concern’, at Isabel appearing naked in the kitchen, on the way to her bath.

This funding lady’s letter, gave the reasons, why ‘education’ had disappeared.

The reason they have given is that they find Finola’s expressions of points of view and the manner that this takes place, leaves them feeling vulnerable. They believe their actions are discredited by Finola when either one of them is not in your home, they feel this is undermining and makes them anxious to be around Finola’.

What points of view? The ones on the articles, brought weekly by the Lodge Lady ?

The ones being groomed from me ?

Am I, not allowed to voice dissatisfaction/frustration, at the appalling way, Issy/we, have been treated, in my own kitchen ?

‘Vulnerable’ to what?

Most of the time, I am working in the lounge.

In what way, am I undermining them?

What ‘actions’ have they taken ?,

Other than tickle Issy, blow bubbles, and play music, alone in her bedroom, largely ignored.

Neither worker, was even given Issy’s care plan, or, apparently, any information about her.

They observe that when Finola is expressing her points of view Isabel gets distressed, she cries and rocks in her bedroom and whilst this is pointed out to Finola it does not stop the negative verbal outpouring towards all services’.

Isabel does not observe my ‘points of view’.

They are made in the kitchen with door closed, when Isabel, is in her bedroom, with  her door closed.

As this makes it impossible for them to distress Issy,   how could  it have been pointed  out to me ?

‘The personal assistants would like to have suggested to Finola on at least one occasion that this expression of frustration is halted but do not feel able to say anything to Finola which might cause further tension. They feel scared. This has led them to take the view that they no longer feel safe in the household’

If, they would like to have suggested it once, but were too scared.

How then, did they dare, to point out, my my views were upsetting Issy?

These workers, had  never mentioned my negativity, instead encouraging  it, with articles, and stories about care scandals.

You will be aware that this is a further agency expressing their concerns regarding the challenges faced in offering direct care to Isabel in the home, advising they are planning to withdraw their services’

A further agency ?.

Over 18 months, we have had some 25 different workers in the kitchen from  a single large agency- Reed.

No one, worker, or agency, had ever mentioned any ‘concerns’.

We were never given the reason, for this agency’s  withdrawal  in October last year.

In fact this very services manager had  asked us why they had withdrawn in our funding meeting in October.

And an email from our social worker, saying they had terminated their (very lucrative £50 per hour) contract.

Even she had said, they were’ not perhaps the most appropriate agency’.

The social services could not prove what they are saying.

But it appears they don’t have to.

How then could I prove this is all lies?

Other than, the fact it was totally improbable,

And, not mentioned before.

Remember this agency was paid over £100,000, £24 per hour for their services. workers £7,50 an hour

So, what do we have here.

A service manager, who has provided an inadequate service, is eliciting  evidence, from support staff, to show neglect, and abuse.

To cover up inadequate, spying, making up serious assault allegation, service provision, to facilitate, the removal of Isabel to earn £ 4000 per week, in secret, drugged,  abused encagement.

The evidence being;

1/ Social Services cannot support mother at home, as workers refuse to work with mother, as they are undermined, and scared.

2/ Mother is emotionally abusing Isabel, by distressing her with her opinions, and continuing to do so, in the face of this distress,even after, it has been pointed out to her.

And the  truth?

Irrelevant.

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.
