Birmingham Childrens Social Services Report

I have been quite busy working to highlight the systematic problems that cause the situation where Birmingham has the problems as identified in Monday's report. I will do a detailed post at some stage about this.

However, it is my view that Birmingham is far from being the worst Childrens Services Authority for Child Protection. It is, however, the most honest.

I am not so sure that they are honest, my dealings with them some 9 years ago would say that they were far from honest. Whenever we needed help with my daughters problems the social worker was off sick. We were never able to get the same social worker twice. My dauther needed help which I was not qualified to give. However, as a result I have lost all my grandchildren whom I miss very much and find it difficult to understand why there was not the support there. I would like to have had some idea of how my grandchildren were doing - Zacharia Anthony Richmond and Matthew Belhartley-Benson and Sapphire Mewrrick Benson - Benson was their mothers maiden name. I know that Zacharia and Matthew may be together The tragic case of my dauther would never have happened had there been sufficient support and understanding of hers and the childrens needs. I gave as much as I could.

I would like to know how the respective children are getting on despite there being a long gap in time since I was last intouch. My life had to move on but they are always on my mind.

If you could at least give me some indication as to their welbeing then I would be happy.

I think that after all this time there would be some form of breakthrough where Grandparent could be informed of their childrens welbeing. According to one of the social workders Mr Rob Snow I was only a grandparent by accident - well that may be so but I still loved my grandchildren and miss them and I found his attitude both rude and cruel. Just because He does not seem to have a happy life he should not be allowed to make others suffer even more.

The attitude at the time from all the service was extremely negative and I would not recommend anyone to go the Social Services in Birmingham for help.

Sue Page (formerly Mrs Watson) I have moved on with my life but am still concerned of their well being.

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. …

Statement re Police investigation into Harassment and Perverting the Course of Justice.

It was recently reported that the police were not investigating the allegations of Perverting the Course of Justice that I had made. This came as a surprise to me as I had been told for some time that my allegations were to be considered once the VRR had been rejected. I have now had a very constructive meeting with Staffordshire police on Friday 29th June 2018 and the misunderstandings have been resolved. At that meeting the evidence relating to the perversion of the course of justice and the harassment campaign against my family were discussed. The police have decided to investigate both the perversion of the course of justice and also the harassment campaign. I would like to thank them for changing their decision and I accept their apology for the way in which they did that. I am also in possession of written confirmation a police force would be investigating allegations that a vulnerable witness has been harassed for trying to expose the campaign against me. I hope that the aut…

R v SUSSEX JUSTICES ex p McCARTHY [1924] 1 KB 256

November 9 1923

Editor’s comments in bold.

Here, the magistrates’ clerk retired with the bench when they were considering a charge of dangerous driving. The clerk belonged to a firm of solicitors acting in civil proceedings for the other party to the accident. It was entirely irrelevant that there had been no evidence of actual influence brought to bear on the magistrates, and the conviction was duly quashed.

It is clear that the deputy clerk was a member of the firm of solicitors engaged in the conduct of proceedings for damages against the applicant in respect of the same collision as that which gave rise to the charge that the justices were considering. It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired in the usual way with the justices, taking with him the…
