Today's Face the Facts on Radio 4 12.30pm

BBC Times Times Comment Guardian PA Story

Face the facts today at 12.30pm has some new material including a whistleblower who has been a senior social worker and confirms in essence that the thesis I have argued is true. On the back of this PA sent out a news story which has gone verbatim into about 30 local papers such as The Lancashire Evening Post

I did an embargoed press release as well
The Department for Children Schools and Families were slammed today by John Hemming MP for being disingenuous about the adoption targets. On BBC's Face the Facts (on Radio 4 at 12.30pm) The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) denied there was a target relating to taking children from their birth parents in order to meet overall adoption targets.

John Hemming MP, Chairman of Justice for Families, said, "This is disingenouous and misleading. There is a target for getting children in care adopted. To have a child adopted from care that child has to be in care first. The government were innumerate and ignored three things when they set the adoption targets. Firstly they ignored the approximately a third of children that are in care under Section 20 of the Childrens Act voluntarily because their parents cannot cope with them. Secondly, they ignored the fact that children over 5 are difficult to get successfully adopted. Thirdly, they compared a number of children in care at a given date to a number of children per year adopted. That fails on the basis of dimensional analysis." "The end result is to achieve 8% of children in care over 6 months adopted they have to have both almost all of the children under 5 taken into care adopted and also take more children aged under 5 taken into care. The mathematics is quite simple."

"The government are trying to avoid their responsiblity for this situation - instead they should fix the problem. Childrens Social Services are not 100% responsible, the blame also rests with the Family Division and in particular those solicitors who act to undermine their own clients and the judges who refuse to allow fair trials." "I am hoping that the United Nations will assist in trying to protect families in the England and Wales against the ravages of English and Welsh Public Family Law. It is a major destructive force. Whilst the state continues to undermine family life it should not be surprised at the consequences."

I have undeniable evidance that the Birmingham Social Services are unlawfully kidnapping children from their parent's, and faking public record's to cover up for a peadophile ring involving the British M.O.D. under Fake experimental licence's! And just as Fake Prime Minister Goron Brown stated in his Brightton conference in 2005 "This is a sexual issue, not a public issue"... need i say more!

Statement re false allegations from Esther Baker

Statement by John Hemming
I am pleased that the Police have now made it clear that there has been a concerted effort to promote false criminal allegations against me and that the allegations had no substance whatsoever.
I would like to thank Emily Cox, my children, Ayaz Iqbal (my Solicitor), my local lib dem team and many others who supported me through this dreadful experience. There are many worse things that happen to people, but this was a really bad experience.
It is bad enough to have false allegations made about yourself to the police, but to have a concerted campaign involving your political opponents and many others in public creates an environment in which it is reasonable to be concerned about ill founded vigilante attacks on your family and yourself. Luckily there was a more substantial lobby to the contrary as well, which included many people who were themselves real survivors of abuse, which has helped.
I am normally someone who helps other people fight injustice. …

Homelessness vs Selling Books

Candidates in elections tend to find themselves very busy with lots of things to do.  It is, therefore, necessary to prioritise things to ensure that the important things are dealt with.

To me the issue of homelessness and rough sleeping is an important issue.  Therefore, when Birmingham's Faith Leaders group contacted me to ask me what I would propose and whether I would work with them to make things better I was pleased to respond with my views and indicate that I would work with them after the election.

The Faith Leaders Group (Bishops and other religious leaders in Birmingham) have now sent out their report.

Sadly, according to their report,  I was the only candidate for Yardley to respond.  The group in their report said:

"Particularly disappointing was the lack of response from some of those candidates seeking re-election as MP for their respective constituencies."
It is worth looking at the priorities of my opponent.
Interestingly today she has decided to be at th…

Millionaires and politics

The Labour Party spent most of the last election criticising me for being a successful businessman (aka millionaire). That is business in the private sector employing over 250 people. It is worth looking at the situation for the Labour Candidate now:

For the year 2016-7 Annual Income from Parliament74,962Specifically for her book51,250Other media income etc5,322.82Total declared income131,534.82

Traditionally anyone with an annual income of over £100,000 has been considered to be a millionaire. I did not use my position in parliament to increase my income.


I have been asked for sources for this. This BBC piece looks at how one should define rich. It was written in 2011 so the figures will be slightly out of date. There are perhaps 2 relevant pieces:
"In 1880 a rich person would have had £100,000 in assets or an income of £10,000 a year, he says. About a hundred people a year died leaving £100,000 and by 1910 this was 250 - "a microscopic fraction of the number of death…
