Coram should be watched very closely, one of their board of Govenors is no other then Mr Justice Thorpe himself, How can a high court family court Judge be a govenor of one of the biggest Adoption agencies in the UK, Hmmmm I hope that has you thinking. Coram will soon be the Replacement for Cafcass something it has been trying to achieve for over two years now, Coram as you look on Google you will see they have their hands in that many pies it proves that Coram are the fat cats we don't like. Kids don't come into it with Coram, Many London County councils pay Coram millions of pounds a year, only to then syphon off millions of pounds to by back paintings from america Coram already own.
Harrow,harringhey, and tower hamlets (totalling £14 million) to name but a few have all given money to Coram for "family services", Check out this link to a Family Justice council meeting last year there you'll find Paul from Harrow on there, he was one of the Governors of coram last year.

I will have to stop now before I say what I really want to about Coram, it is not in my nature to sware on here but blimey I'm finding it hard not to.

As John knows the system too well and he like me know that there are many countless families like myself who are suffering at the hands of the child protection system, I might loose my children because two reasons 1 of what I do in supporting people and the other because I was PLAYING with my boys one night, failed criminal conviction to boot as well.

Local Authorities do not know when to give in on some of these family cases, they dig themselves so deep that the L.A will use any tactic possible to silence the parents (including threats of Jail) and beat the parents down. when this happens god help the poor parents who have to fight against a system and local authority with a bottomless pit of money, rights to a fair trial yeah pull the other one.

I'll stop now but I could go on about this all night long!

Jerry, I fully know how low they can go in the attempt to take children away from parents. Things are no different in Jersey, but at least in the UK you have the help and backing from a few MP's. Here you feel even more alone and hitting a brick wall, I would love to meet a social worker with common sense without a target number of children to obtain per week. However why are councils being paid bonus for children in care? Surely this leads to over zealous nazi style social workers looking to hit their targets - I mean who would want the truth to get in the way of this. Well if I can ever be of help let me know!

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England.

The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity.

The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back.

This is an issue that needs further work.

In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.

Problems with Outlook Express - emails lost dbx corruption

In the light of the enthusiasm shown for my post relating to the OCX control that must not be named (and probably Microsoft's most embarrassing error of recent years) I thought I would write someting about Outlook Express.

Outlook Express is the email client that comes as part of windows. I use it myself, although I have my emails filtered through a spam filter of my own devising written in java. It takes email off a number of servers using POP3 (Post Office Protocol TCP Port 110) and sends it using SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol port 25).

I have recently spent a few hours dealing with the problem that arises when .dbx files get corrupted during compacting.

Outlook Express (OE) stores the emails (and other things) in files with the suffix .dbx. Each folder has its own .dbx file. They are stored in hidden directories. This makes it harder to deal with things when OE goes wrong.

It is very important to back up your stored *.dbx files as otherwise if you have a disk crash/stol…

Statement re False Allegations Campaign

Many people will know that my family and I have been subject to a campaign of false allegations by Esther Baker for the past 4 1/2 years. Yesterday there was a court judgment Baker v Hemming [2019] EWHC 2950 (QB) which formally confirmed that the allegations were false. Esther Baker, who had brought a libel claim against me, dropped her defence of Truth to my counter-claim and was taken by the judge as no longer trying to prove her allegations. Due to Baker's various breaches of court rules and orders, she has been barred from further repeating her allegations even in the court proceedings. Further claim of mine in libel against Baker are ongoing. There is a good summary in the Daily Mail here.

This demonstrates the challenge in fighting false allegations in today's Britain. A substantial campaign was built up to promote allegations which had no substance to them. Various Labour MPs and in pa…
