Families have have enough of this child trafficking and are speaking out, many with threats and gagging order hanging over their heads.

One of the most comprehensive mainstream media reports into this systematic abuse.
An inquiry into the sexual abuse of children at care homes in North Wales has revealed the "appalling mistreatment" the victims suffered over 20 years. The UK Government is now actively searching for 28 former care workers named in the inquiry's report.

Victims tell of abuse ordeal

Steven Messham was 13 when he was sent to the Bryn Estyn children's home in Wrexham. "Within a matter of days I was physically abused and sexually abused," he says.

Thank Tony,

Child abuse and child trafficking within the corrupt system including the familys courts is rife. with so-called independent child protection reviews carried out by CEO Peter Gilroy psychiatric/social worker(highest paid in the country) and social worker pals .employed by Kent County Council, all condoned by the councillors.

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/internal_child_protection_review #followup

(check out the very last comment, it looks like they even steal their own councillors grandchildren; bet there was more than one councillor this has happen to)

Dear Michelle Hunt,

Thank your for your email.

Please supply the Council resolution to which you refer.

Please, also state the exact time Peter Thomason left as an
employee and all positions held, please state if he is a chairman
and/or sits on any boards connected with Kent County Council.

All positions held by Martyn Ayre, both previous and currently
within Kent County Council.

Is it correct that all 3 public servants come from social worker
backgrounds and have also worked with each other either in the past
or present?

Are the Public realistically expected to believe this review in any
shape or form could be considered independent; were the
requirements that it is supposed to be an Independent?

One could successfully argue that it runs along the lines of, the
Police , policing themselves or Kent County Council patting
themselves on the back.

Could you therefore also name the Councillor in charge of this
department/ review and supply their qualifications ; who is
ultimately responsible for children in their capacity as a
corporate parent ( all councillors are)and direct this request to
them personally for their comment and attention.

In particular, if they have had any complaints either verbally or
written in connection with this review, and by any councillor who
has had their grandchildren removed by Kent County Council.

with thanks

Yours faithfully,

Wilson, A


If the councillors can not protect their own children from their own councils, what chance does any child have?

Dear Michelle Hunt,

Thank you for confirming that Kent County Council create "fantasy
birth parents in Closed Adoptions" as I am sure you are aware,
these occur in Closed Family Courts, hidden from the Public's gaze.

Please supply the section of East Kent Concurrency Team's policy
which states this service was to be provided for pre-birth
/babies/very young children aged under 2.

Which Government directive this was taken from; as this does not
appear in-line with Government Policy for OLDER children
languishing in 'care'

It is interesting to note that only 2 children were returned to
their parents in 2008, can you please explain why this figure is so
low,and if this is a reflection of current and previous yearly
figures?

Yours faithfully,

Wilson, A

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/conservative_led_kcc_ceo_peter_g #incoming-40898

Kent County Councils CEO Peter Gilroy conveniently forgot mention to Ed Balls or it appears any other party, that he had written to Lord Laming regarding;( 2008 children protection review, which was carried out in-house, hardly independent , by CEO & pals/associate )

'offering to write a piece for the Conservative Party'

(apparently he has also written articles for the Guardian Newspaper ,)


Is it really any wonder that children are being abused in care / child trafficking or that this can so easily can be covered-up. If internal reviews are completed by the same people that run the systems, whilst CEO are also on first name terms with the Lord Laming carrying out the inquiry in Baby Peter case.

Looks more like a case of I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine !!!

Dear Sir or Madam,

Can you please confirm whether or not the Family Courts , which
operate in secret behind closed doors, are in fact operating under
Admiralty and Equity Law;the Law of the Sea rather than Common Law;
the Law of the Land ?

The the former only applies to the 'color of law' and operate under
Statue/Acts, which simply do not apply to men/women and their
offspring.

Authorities such as Kent County Council, are clearly using this to
their advantage and have no obligation to provide facts ; these are
not required nor recognized in these fictitious courts.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/607391 4/Secret-agenda-to-score-adoptions.html

Will be interesting to see if Medway Family Court takes any notice of Lord Justice Thorpe and Lord Justice Wall's criticisms, the latter ordered his comments to be circulated to family courts and adoption agencies across the land.
(Could his comments be referring to the Law of the Land)

The Lords appear to recognize that there is a clear difference between the LAW and legal child kidnap; there cannot be Lawful child kidnap.

Abuse by authorities is rife , policy put in place to help older children languishing in care ; are being abused

Who could call 0-2 years of age ," older children" ? or is the case of child kidnap of babies aged under 2 ,for adoptive parents who want babies !!

Thank you for confirming that Kent County Council create "fantasy
birth parents in Closed Adoptions" as I am sure you are aware,
these occur in Closed Family Courts, hidden from the Public's gaze.


http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/concurrent_fostercarers_can_adop #comment-4705


Quote “Misconceptions about birth parents is usually alleviated by these
meetings for the concurrency carers for the child and again through the
messages they receive in later life (through the use of life story work
and from carers themselves) enables the child to hold realistic
information rather than creating 'fantasy birth parents' as may be the
case in Closed Adoptions.”

The Councils apply for gagging orders in the royal courts of justice, (in secret of course, cant let the public know
whats really going on, can we now)if they dare speak to anyone let alone put pictures, and I mean anyone including the useless MP,s
who pretend to give a s**t. Over 200 a year are imprisoned, of course the 'common purpose' BBC/media/papers wont tell the sheeple that ,
it might frightened them.

But they will report and use tragic cases like baby Peter's inorder to increase child trafficking, whilst leaving children in
abusive homes to die.

Most children are classed as being at risk of emotional abuse, no family stands a chance in our de facto courts with a de facto parties/government in place,
you can not win.

Over 4,000 children a year are being taken, over a 1,000 of these alone come from Kent and rising.

Is it any surprise when Peter Gilroy the chief executive of
Kent County Council is a psychiatric social worker (highest paid in the country about £250,000 a year) talk about putting the lunatics in charge of the asylum !
Virtually half of the MP's come from SS backgrounds and the other half are lawyers (corruption has no boundaries)the SS are also queuing up to get into the tory party and become MP's.

Children are trafficked, because that is what is really happening, these children are simply being stolen
and not all are going to families , if the secret family courts Cafcass/Coram and rubber stamping judges are not corrupt
why all the secrecy?

You only have to put forced adoption into utube to see all the desperate parents/relatives, funny how the government keep taking down the childrens debate in parliament were the incompetent ministers talk on the children bills , about grandparents only having to be good enough parents, that's funny because all of them are invited (made) to take psychological tests, if they are silly enough to agree and they never pass, its called hoop jumping.

The councillors know and so do the MP's including the Cabbage Patch doll , commonly known as David Cameron (do we really want a cabbage for our next leader , dont we already have one ?)

The only way is to tell the world and everyone you know; before they come for yours, forewarned is forearmed.The family courts and corrupt judges must be exposed ,not kept hidden to do their dirty work behind closed doors, which is exclusively for their protection not the childrens.

Council's are using your council tax , in order to steal your own children.

Barely Functioning
written by John Bolch on Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Following Sir Mark Potter's recent comments regarding the crisis in the family courts, I requested an interview with His Honour Judge Polden, the designated Family Law Judge for Kent, on the subject. I chose him because I have always practised in Kent and therefore know something about the courts in this county. He declined the interview. Perhaps this is not entirely surprising, given the state of some of the courts over which he presides.

As I will shortly be no longer using the courts for my work, I feel I can now say something about their state. Take my local court, Medway County Court, for instance. I would not say that it was any exaggeration to state that it is barely functioning at all, with even the most straightforward matters taking months to deal with.

Like other local solicitors, I have been issuing in other courts, just to avoid the delays at Medway. Perhaps that is the plan: reduce the service to such a level that everyone goes elsewhere - problem solved!

I would be interested to hear the experiences of others up and down the country.

Massive abuse of power going on ?????

Mr B Gerrish

10 September 2009
Dear Sir or Madam,

It appears quite discerning that Kent County Council seem so
reluctant to focus on issues regarding the care of children within
the system.

Therefore, can you please explain what information you hold on your
records that state an elected member who is responsible for
children’s services can possibly have for not answering in full a
direct question, and further more supply such information.

Listed below.

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/sa...

State whether Geoff Wild head of Legal Team (possibly common
purpose trained) does in fact sign care order application forms, re
link below.

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/co...

And explain the following

http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/co...

Quote; Thank you for confirming that Kent County Council create
"fantasy birth parents in Closed Adoptions" as I am sure you are
aware, these occur in Closed Family Courts, hidden from the
Public's gaze.

Please supply the section of East Kent Concurrency Team's policy
which states this service was to be provided for pre-birth
/babies/very young children aged under 2.

Which Government directive this was taken from; as this does not

their parents in 2008, can you please explain why this figure is so
low, and if this is a reflection of current and previous yearly
figures? How the Council create ‘fantasy birth parents in closed
Adoptions’

I apologise for such a long request, but children are of such great
importance and their welfare of interest to everyone, your
corporation in this matter is extremely valued, being that I intend
to focus closely on this subject in the near future.

Many thanks for your corporation in this matter.

Yours faithfully

Mr Brian Gerrish

UK Grandparents not suitable to raise grandchildren

http://nameshamesocialworkers.blogspot.com/

Clearly these are not to old or feeble, so who is considered good enough Shocked


[A letter a dear friend of mine sent to the Judge in the Family Court,( edited to protect identities) the Judge used paragraph 4 to remove them as party. Yet he failed to answer when asked in Court what would stop children’s services coming after their own children if they failed ‘so-called assessments including a psychological assessment that the Council and Judge were trying to rail road them into.]


After our recent LIP experience of the Family Courts regarding contesting the ICO (at your suggestion), in the hope our granddaughters would be returned to live with their grandparents. We now have ‘little faith’ in either the LA professionals who unfortunately, do not appear to act in the ‘best interests of the children’ or the present system that fails to make them accountable for their actions.

It may just be coincidental that I was standing for election in November 2007 after I had complained to the Director of Children’s Services , on a separate issue and took my complaints to the LGO.

Apparently, we could risk being labelled mad or worse if we go to the press; yet it seems pointless to Appeal without the media.

Regretfully, our stance on being assessed has not changed for the reasons given at the initial hearing; having young children of adoptable ages and no belief in the CSW comment ‘that the SS do not canvas for work’ our family has already been destroyed.

Please do not think us paranoid. A continuous stream of high calibre news articles including award winning Journalists, looking into ‘children’s services’ alongside the UN investigation into our Family Courts, EDM’s signed by numerous MP’s and
Jack Straw’s announcement to allow the press (April2009); all suggest otherwise.

There appears to be a mass of contradictions/inaccuracies and double standards.
Selective incomplete evidence, (mainly opinion based) interpreted as ‘fact’ without the full information requested from September 2002 including ‘notes’ from both the SS and CG. A different criteria/ model supplied (non-relative assessment), which is neither objective nor subjective. And discerning to note that there is no record of us receiving £100 cash from the SS .

Ironically, a Councillor on the ‘Children’s Champion Board’ sort my advice about ‘children’s services’ and is aware of our previous experience.
Although I did not ask him, he seems to have attempted to help; I am not his constituent nor did I ask about kinship care allowance and our children are not known to social care or receive services.

Charles J in Re R [2002] 1 FLR 755 and Munby J in Re L (Care Assessment: Fair Trial) [2002] 2 FLR 730In Re R,

Relatives are expected to jump through hoops and endure fishing trips that were simply not required on the two previous occasions, when XXXX and XXXX were placed in our care, on the second occasion after an interview with CPO.
The LA may have been concerned about a possible Judicial Review and this may have contributed to why an offer of a mandatory referral for (FGC) ‘not best practice’ as suggested in Court, was not forthcoming.

D-v- Southwark LBC [2007] EWCA Civ 182
. Munby J Manchester City Council – V – F (2002) 1FLR 43

What is the definition of better than good enough parenting?

The House of Lords (2008) ‘grandparents only have to be reasonable enough parents’

“Innocent yet presumed guilty unless we comply - On the balance of probabilities?”
We probably have far more experience than many of the professionals involved, having raised 6 children.

Supervisory contact is only required we believe, if there is a danger to the children.
Being a XXXX/CRB checked with no previous concerns, it is insulting and degrading to be only offered expensive supervised contact in an unnatural environment. While our offer of contact in our home (with foster carers if need be) and Cllrs/Corporate Parents offering to be present, is ignored/rejected.
Whilst bizarrely XXXX & XXXX have been transported by taxi virtually on a daily basis from XXXX that is 5 minutes from XXXX, to XXXX approximately a hours drive by their first set of inexperienced carers; all at the taxpayers expense?

Where are our granddaughter’s Human Rights to a family life? Having been placed in foster care, where their well-being has deteriorated after being separated and passed from ‘pillar to post’ and respite care, instead of with relatives.

DCSF – figures suggest that at least 2 children a week die and/or are abused in care.

Research suggests that there are well-evidenced advantages1 for children who cannot live with their parents to be raised by relatives or friends:
Farmer E and Moyers S (2008)‘Kinship Care: Fostering Effective Family and Friends Placements’ (Jessica Kingsley); Doolan et al (2004) Growing up in the Care of Relatives and Friends (Family Rights Group); Hunt J (2003) Family and Friends Care; coping Paper for Dept of Health; Broad, B (ed) (2001) Kinship Care: the placement of choice for children and young people (Russell House; Hunt Waterhouse & Lutman (2008forthcoming) Keeping them in the family (BAAF) Dr Lynne Wrenndall, Charles Pragnell. Lisa Blakemore-Brown, Brian Morgan, Dr Helen Hayward-Brown, Bruce Irvine,
Dr Clive Baldwin, Stephen Clark, Cathy Johnson (2004) Taking the stick away: the service users’ joint statement

It is hoped that XXXX (babies are far more sort after for adoption and a marketable commodity) will be given a Voice Child Advocate, (the CSW rejected this in favour of the CG only).

The FGC Co-ordinator’s comment ‘ holding a FGC at a late stage “energises families” is insulting and worthless when the LA holds all the power and should not be advising family members that I must agree to be assessed.
The joint comments from the LA solicitor and CG who later offered to alter her notes? The LA solicitor told me ‘ the LA only had a duty to consider family members.’
If Human Rights and the PLO can be so brazenly be disregarded/ ignored, is it any wonder that ¾ of children end up adopted or on SGO with strangers instead of relatives.

The CG Solicitor’s remarks outside the Court ‘that LA Counsel could speak for me, or XXXX a passing Solicitor could represent me or they would adjourn and the Court would/could not allow my grandchildren to be placed with us on ICO’ (reiterated the CG comment) and meeting immediately after Court, with the CSW/Counsel, but not us. And the CG & ISW lunching in the Café across the road, all show how cosy the relevant professionals appear to be, hardly independent.

‘ Generally speaking, guardians act as cheerleaders for social services departments. They are entirely compliant, and seem incapable of doing more than being a cheering section’. Eric Pickles MP. (We cannot disagree.)

As Corporate Parents we should act in the way we would if the children were our own. I am appalled at what I perceive to be professionals who fail to act in a professional manner and seem to have no intention of working to reunite children with families. The public would be astonished at the costs involved and outraged that relatives are over looked in favour of expensive foster care.

Totally amazed that such draconian measures of removing children without a mandatory referral for (FGC) can amount to; crystal ball gazing opinion backed up by expensive reports paid for from the public purse.
How is it possible to review a past non event and make a decision based on what may or may not have happened if a FGC had been held, when it could/did not take place?

Children are not mere commodities to be passed around for profit; clearly everyone involved is being paid, (the larger the bundle the more costly?), which could be better spent on ‘real’ child protection and desperately needed front line services to support families to ensure that mandatory FGC referrals are completed; improved services.

I came into politics in order to defend the children of the poor and help make sure that families receive the services they deserve. Councillors are more aware of their responsibility to ‘looked after children’ and the CEO is reviewing the case following a subsequent meeting with the XXXX Leader.

The one simple thing that can never be altered is my granddaughters’ heritage, we are blood relatives, our granddaughters will always be dearly loved and wanted; this can never be obliterated. Hopefully they will be reunited with family members, who if given the opportunity could have applied (if need be) for a RO via private law.

The Court has the power to remedy matters and take the more proportional approach that the LA has not done to-date. Please take into consideration our views and concerns when making your decisions about our granddaughters futures.
