  Summary of Disrupted Adoption Calculations
The link is to an abstract.

OBJECTIVE: To discover the outcomes for children placed late for adoption (between 5 and 11 years old) from public care and to establish which factors predict poorer outcome. METHOD: Data were collected prospectively (1993-2003) from a representative sample of domestic U.K. adoptive placements (N = 108) at the start of placement, at 1 year, and 6 years later. Most of the children entered care because of abuse and neglect. Outcome was assessed by the disruption rate, by a twofold classification of the character of continuing placements, and by an assessment of psychological well-being. RESULTS: At the adolescent follow-up, 23% of placements had disrupted, 49% were continuing positively, and 28% were continuing but with substantial ongoing difficulties. Four factors contributed independently to a higher risk of disruption: older age at placement (odds ratio = 1.07), having been singled out from siblings and rejected (5.87), time in care (1.04), and a high level of behavioral problems (1.25). Two factors predicted differences in continuing placements. CONCLUSIONS: Late adoption can be successful in that half the children made good progress, but the extent of disruptions and difficulties in continuing placements gives rise to concern. Knowledge of predictors will help in devising planning pre- and postplacement support services.

  Professor Sir Michael Rutter and Romania
This programme is an interesting interview with Professor Sir Michael Rutter about the effects of Romanian Orphanages on children.

What I find particularly interesting is that his conclusion was that the children who left the orphanage before 6 months generally did not suffer from long lasting disorders.

"in all of our followups we have found no deficits in children whose institutional deprivation ended before the age of 6 months. That is not to say that at an individual level that there is no child that is affected, but it is to say that the differences were so small that we couldn't measure them."

"The rate of deficits jumped to a rate of 40% in the second half of the first year."

What is important about this is that it implies that the RAD seen in the large numbers of children taken into care in England in their first 3 months is not caused by their parenting, but by something else.

  Forced Adoption and Failures
The link is to an article in today's Guardian about adoptions that fail. I found an interesting element at the bottom.

The British Association of Adoption and Fostering (BAAF) estimates that one in five adoptions break down, although children who are "handed back" are usually older. The younger the child, the lower the chance of the placement breaking down. A study by the Maudsley Hospital in London found a breakdown rate of 8% after one year and 29% six years later. On average, adoptions that broke down did so 34 months after placement.

I have been for some time been trying to get some research results on how many forced adoptions fail (aka are disrupted). When doing statistics the government don't count the failed adoptions as outcomes for children as they appear in the Section 20 care figures instead. Hence their assumptions are flawed.

It would be interesting to compare the figures on adoption failure in other countries to England.

  The Treasury Economic Model
For some time I have been concerned that it is not possible to scrutinise the details of the treasury forecasting. That is because the government have historically refused to provide the data that they put into the Economic Model.

They are happy to provide a copy of the program, but without the data it is not possible to check the figures.

We are in a really challenging situation as a country where action needs to be taken to bring the budgetary deficit under control, but at the same time not to kick the economy over the edge.

This is an occasion when proper scrutiny really needs access to the inputs. I put in written question on the issue again recently and the government again refused to answer the question, but I hope to raise this issue within the appeals process.

  Swine Flu fortnightly report
This report from NHS West Midlands shows that there is a mixed picture across the region in terms of GP consultation rates but increasing numbers of hospital admissions and patients in critical care.

Key Messages
Across the West Midlands there has been a mixed picture in patients presenting at primary care centres with influenza-like symptoms, some PCT areas show an increase, other areas show a decrease, in rates. Overall, the West Midlands rate has increased but this is not impacting on normal service delivery. The Department of Health has announced that the vaccination programme will be extended to children over six months and under five years.

Activity /Rates – GPs
This shows the number of patients attending primary care with influenza-like illness, taken from the latest Health Protection Agency QSurveillance data. This data indicates an increase for the week ending 15 November 2009, across England and the West Midlands, but a decrease within the Birmingham East and North area.

The reported rate of GP consultations per 100,000 population within the West Midlands for the week was 61.0 (compared with 54.8 for the previous week).

West Midlands average 61.0 (per 100,000)
England and Wales rate 48.1 (per 100,000)
NHS Birmingham East and North 43.4 (per 100,000)

Number of Hospital Admissions
The total number of new admissions with swine flu admitted to hospitals in the West Midlands for the period 12 to 18 November 2009 is 216. As of 18 November, there were 111 people in hospital, 19 % of which are in critical care.

Number of Swine Flu Related Deaths
There have been eight swine flu-related deaths reported in the last two weeks since our previous report. This means that the number of total deaths where there has been a positive test of swine flu in the West Midlands is twenty-seven. Note: The Chief Medical Officer yesterday announced a regional breakdown of the 142 deaths that have been fully investigated by the CMO against the criteria for inclusion as a swine flu related death in England. This referred to 23 deaths within the West Midlands, which differs from our figure as some of the more recent cases will be awaiting a full investigation by the CMO.

Vaccination Programme
Vaccination of people in clinical at-risk groups is well under way. It was announced yesterday that once GPs complete the vaccination of these groups, the programme will be extended to offer children over six months and under five years protection against the virus. Children under five years of age are more likely than other groups to be hospitalised if they become ill with swine flu. The Department of Health is currently working with the BMA and NHS organisations to agree details of how the vaccine will be delivered.

Parents of children who are over six months and under five years should wait to be contacted by their local surgery.

NHS West Midlands has commissioned two films – one presenting the case for why frontline staff should get vaccinated against swine flu and one for members of the public. The films are intended to be used as an additional tool in the deployment of local vaccination programmes, to gently remind people and encourage uptake of the vaccine. The films are available on YouTube at:

Update on Anti-Viral Collection Points (ACPs)
Total number of Antiviral Collection Points planned for the Local Health Economy: 14
Currently open: 1 (Stechford)

The PCT currently has 1 ACP open which is in line with the current level of need. Plans are in place to open more collection points to meet any increase in demand.

Total number of assessments via the National Flu Pandemic Service (West Midlands): 199,186
Total number of antivirals collected (West Midlands): 98,318

Public Health Message
A National Pandemic Flu Service has been launched to ensure that people with flu or flu-like symptoms are able to get advice and help. The service is made up of a dedicated website and call centres which provide people with a quick way to check their symptoms and get access to antiviral drugs. For most people, swine flu is not a serious illness and they should start to feel better after a few days without needing to go to their GP or A&E.

  Children Schools and Families Bill
The link is to the bill on parliament's website. The text of the bill follows from here

I wonder if the "guarantees" in this are "cast iron guarantees" or not.

I need to go through the family proceedings stuff in detail, but it appears that Jack Straw's Civil Servants have betrayed him again and are setting up a system so that a journalist has to be present to say what went on and that otherwise reporting the proceedings even anonymously is still contempt.

  Bob Russell MP - aka The Shock and Awe of parliamentary proceedings
Every year on Queens Speech day (today) the new set of Early Day Motions is tabled. This means a new set of numbers starting with number 1. Anyone who wishes to get a low number needs to queue up until the Table Office opens at 10am today.

No-one, however, tries to beat Bob Russell MP (aka Mr Colchester). Bob Turns up the night before and sleeps in his sleeping bag in the queue for the table office. This is the "Shock and Awe" of parliamentary proceedings. Noone tries to beat him because he is unbeatable.

The photo below is Bob this morning having slept the night in his sleeping bag (which is the green thing under the table).

  Labour repeals part of Magna Carta
The link is to the debate about the Court Fees.

The old 1215 Magna Carta was changed on numerous occasions, but there are still some sections of the 1297 Magna Carta that are in force in the UK.

This can be seen here on the statute law database.

One of the sections that remains in force is Section 29.
NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor[condemn him,] but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or Right

The government are proposing to charge fees for court access to include the cost of remitted fees for those people who cannot afford the fees. Whichever way you look at it this involves selling justice.

I don't think this can be done via an SI.

This year I went to Stechford. We have recently restored the war memorial at the roundabout at the end of Albert Road. I normally have gone to the service in the City Centre, but instead went with the Stechford and Yardley North Councillors to Stechford in part to see the event with the restored memorial.

I did take some photographs, but Rob Jones was there. He takes photographs of many of the local events and you can see his photographs of Stechford (which were far better than mine) here

  Jersey - the Crown Dependencies and conflicts of interest
I have linked to a story on the Channel Islands TV station which in part says:
A Jersey accountant jailed in 2007 for six years for money laundering has had his conviction quashed.

His defence council took his case to the Jersey Court Of Appeal but it was rejected. They then took it to the Privy Council - the highest court islanders can appeal to - where it was finally quashed.

The judge, Commissioner Sir Geoffrey Nice was branded 'sarcastic, mocking and patronising.' He interrupted Mr Michel 273 times as he was giving evidence. It's now expected to cost the Jersey tax payer millions of pounds. Mr Michel's defence lawyer says in retrospect, he should have objected more at the time.

Click for the video.

What I find interesting is the unquestioning reliance of the TV station on judicial decisions. There have always been biased judges.

What is most important to hear is the solicitors explaining how he didn't want to challenge the judge in case he upset the judge.

This is one of the unusual conflicts of interest that people don't initially spot in the legal process. To appeal a decision upset the judge. Hence there is some resistance to doing this because lawyers want the goodwill of the judiciary to make a living.

It is interesting contrasting the subtle negotiation of lawyers with the somewhat more robust approach of the Justice for Families support for Litigants in Person where the system is confronted face on.

Admittedly this results in me getting a lot of critism from particularly LJs Wall and Thorpe, but it has resulted in something like 10 cases going through the system to the European Court.

The difficulties in secret courts have lead to a culture of complacency. This is more visible as a culture in Jersey in all the courts. ALong with Stuart (the refugee in my flat) and his various cases I have evidence of a number of other egregious failures of the judicial and prosecutory system in Jersey.

The story is also on CHannel Online of Stuarts case where the journalist puts forward some poujadist nonsense against the arguments for the rule of law.

At least in the UK we have some journalists with some backbone and willingness to challenge the establishment. In the Channel Islands it appears missing from the media - who after all don't want to bit the hand that feeds them.

Much like lawyers and the judiciary really.
 
  Swine Flu fortnightly report
This report from NHS West Midlands shows that the number of people with flu-like illness has slightly increased across the region.

Key Messages
Across the West Midlands there has been a mixed picture in patients presenting at primary care centres with influenza-like symptoms - some PCT areas show an increase, other areas show a decrease, in rates. Overall, the West Midlands rate has slightly increased but this is not impacting on normal service delivery. The number of people with swine flu admitted to hospitals in the West Midlands has increased, as has the proportion of patients in critical care. There have been six further swine flu related deaths since our last report.

Activity /Rates – GPs
This shows the number of patients attending primary care with influenza-like illness, taken from the latest Health Protection Agency QSurveillance data. This data indicates an increase for the week ending 1 November 2009, across England, West Midlands and within Birmingham East and North.

The reported rate of GP consultations per 100,000 population within the West Midlands for the week was 50.9 (compared with 49.8 for the previous week).

West Midlands average 50.9 (per 100,000)
England and Wales rate 47.3 (per 100,000)
NHS Birmingham East and North 53.3 (per 100,000)

Number of Hospital Admissions
The total number of new admissions with swine flu admitted to hospitals in the West Midlands for the period 29 October to 4 November 2009 is 203. As of 4 November, there were 95 people in hospital, 27% of which are in critical care.

Number of Swine Flu Related Deaths
There have been six swine flu-related deaths reported in the last two weeks since our previous report. This means that the number of total deaths where there has been a positive test of swine flu in the West Midlands is nineteen.

Update on Anti-Viral Collection Points (ACPs)
Total number of Antiviral Collection Points planned for the Local Health Economy: 14
Currently open: 1 (Stechford)

The PCT currently has 1 ACP open which is in line with the current level of need. Plans are in place to open more collection points to meet any increase in demand.

Total number of assessments via the National Flu Pandemic Service (West Midlands): 180,699
Total number of antivirals collected (West Midlands): 88,462

Vaccination Programme
GPs across the region started to receive supplies of the swine flu vaccine last week and will be contacting patients in the ‘at risk’ groups directly to call them in for vaccination.

The order of priority for vaccination will be:
People aged from six months to 65 years in current seasonal flu risk groups
All pregnant women
Those living with people with compromised immune systems, for example those receiving cancer treatment
People aged over 65 in the current seasonal flu risk groups.
NHS hospitals continue to vaccinate front line staff to help keep medical services running smoothly and to prevent them from passing the virus to patients. The vaccination programme has started well across the West Midlands.

Public Health Message
A National Pandemic Flu Service has been launched to ensure that people with flu or flu-like symptoms are able to get advice and help. The service is made up of a dedicated website and call centres which provide people with a quick way to check their symptoms and get access to antiviral drugs.

  The government's control of the house of commons
One thing that is not well known is that the government controls the rules of the house of commons.

This is a matter that hopefully the Wright committee will rectify. I have proposed a new clause to the Constitutional Renewal bill as follows (also see link)

Procedure Committee amendments to standing orders
NC46
To move the following Clause:—
‘Standing Orders of the House of Commons shall make provision for the
Procedure Committee to have the power to table amendments to Standing Orders
for the whole House to accept or reject following a short debate within one week
of the tabling of such amendments.


Although this cannot actually change standing orders it has the potential of getting a vote on the issue.

  Graffiti, Groningen and Anti-Social Behaviour
There was a debate in the house last night which can be read in hansard here. It demonstrates that the government are not really listening on the issue of graffiti and low level crime. The punishment of "clear it up" is the ideal punishment for graffiti, but the government want to fine people. Quite a few cannot pay the fines so it becomes meaningless.

Anyway here are some extracts:
John Hemming (Birmingham, Yardley) (LD): I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way on the subject of early intervention and the need to support families at that stage. I had the opportunity to visit a Sure Start centre in my constituency and, separately, to go to see Home-Start, which does similar sorts of early intervention support work. Home-Start said that about half of its problems arise from bad housing, whereas Sure Start said that some 75 per cent. of family problems arise from bad housing. From a holistic perspective, does the hon. Gentleman that agree that if we are going to deal with that, we need to ensure that there is a stable housing environment? Without that, it is quite difficult to provide early intervention and support for the families and to keep things on an even keel.

James Brokenshire: The hon. Gentleman has made the point about housing in his own way. Clearly, when we consider housing and the resettlement of offenders when they leave prison or drug rehabilitation, we need to ensure that there is adequate housing that enables people to come back into a community. It is essential to have a housing mix as part of that.

John Hemming: Perhaps the right hon. Lady will agree that another aspect of the problem is that human behaviour is often habitual, rather than necessarily rational, that people need to develop good habits, and that one way to enable them to do so is for us to ensure there is better discipline in schools. In my constituency four or five years ago, a child was excluded from school for assaulting a classroom assistant, yet that child was forced back into school. Does the right hon. Lady agree that that is not helpful to good discipline?

Hazel Blears: I certainly agree that discipline is essential and that it is important at school, but I will be frank with the hon. Gentleman: many of these problems start at home. The primary responsibility lies with parents. About 90 per cent. of the public say in all our surveys that parents must take more responsibility. I agree that schools have a major role to play, but it is not simply down to them. If people learn the boundaries and standards of behaviour at home, they will take them with them through the rest of their lives.

John Hemming: I do not know whether my hon. Friend is aware of the research done by the university of Groningen, which identified that it is absolutely critical that rules should be enforced, and that unenforced rules undermine the whole concept.

In Birmingham, we have supported a limited number of antisocial behaviour orders as well as acceptable behaviour contracts. We are particularly keen that offenders who create graffiti should be forced to remove it from the walls. Does my hon. Friend not share my regret that the Government would not support proposals for community fixed penalty notices, which are a way of enforcing the rules so that those who create graffiti are forced to remove it?

Chris Huhne: I agree with my hon. Friend, fundamentally so on his initial point that if we are to have such law it must be properly enforced. The real problem with ASBOs is that the Government’s periodic attempts to use them have not been matched by the necessary back-up. If they were used as a last resort at the end of a whole series of measures that were able to bring gradual pressure to bear, we would be providing a much better back-up for ASBOs and there would be fewer breaches. In reality, in some areas where they have been overused they have unfortunately become a figure of fun because they have not been properly applied.

Caroline Flint (Don Valley) (Lab): The debate has indicated how complex dealing with antisocial behaviour is. One complexity that underpins it is that, unfortunately, there is not a blank sheet or the same starting point for all those involved in antisocial behaviour. We seem to agree about the need for early intervention, and I say to the hon. Member for Eastleigh (Chris Huhne) that everything he suggests we should be doing, we are doing very well. However, some people in our community—adults and young people—have been involved in antisocial behaviour for some time and sucked in the energy of many different agencies and services, and in those cases firmer action needs to take place.

John Hemming: The right hon. Lady says that the Government are doing everything that we suggest they should. We suggested both in Public Bill Committees and on the Floor of the House having fixed penalty notices for community service orders, but the Government did not accept that.
 
  Independent Advisors and Swine Flu Vaccination
I didn't get the chance to ask a question of Alan Johnson on the sacking of Professor Nutt yesterday.

In essence, however, he was sacked for being independent. It is clear now that government advisors, even unpaid ones, are not to be independent, but need to take the government whip.

This, of course, raises into question all the independent advice that the government relies upon and quotes. If advisors are to be sacked for talking out of turn and saying things that the government does not like then they have no independence.

I have been unhappy with the proposals to vaccinate children for Swine Flu. It is now clear that there are no independent advisors to government as they get sacked for being critical of the government. Hence this also applies to the question as to whether or not to vaccinate for Swine Flu.
