Stolen Children on Belgian Radio

The link is to a story (in French) about the stealing of children in England by the authorities.

The following figures give the number of children adopted from care as a proportion of those leaving care in the past 5 years (up to March 2010)


In care 42,510 42,550 41,930 41,290 42,900
Into care 7,700 7,700 7,400 8,200 9,500
Therefore out of care 7,660 8,020 8,840 7,890
Adopted from S20 280 230 220 200 180
Adopted total 3,700 3,300 3,200 3,300 3,200
Adopted from care 3,420 3,070 2,980 3,100 3,020

Proportion 40.08% 37.16% 35.07% 38.28%


These are the calculations the civil servants are avoiding doing. (see my PQs and also freedom of information requests that are refused)

The figures will be more extreme if we look at those leaving care under 10.

Quoting from the Ofsted APA document.
"A very high figure, particularly sustained over some years, should prompt
further enquiry. It may be the result from the prevalence of factors assisting
a council to achieve a high figure, but it may also be a result of a council
placing children inappropriately."

Note that for Ofsted over 25% is very high.

Just Slightly off Topic but thought this would be of interest......



A MOTHER fighting to stop her two-year-old daughter from being adopted against her will has won an adjournment to give her time to apply for legal aid.

The 31-year-old from Halesowen feared she would have to face the adoption hearing without a legal representative after delays in transferring papers after she changed solicitors.

But at Wednesday’s hearing the family court judge granted the adjournment allowing time for the legal aid application to be processed after hearing that the mum - who cannot be named for legal reasons - wanted to argue a change of circumstances.

Afterwards, she described the decision as “brilliant, fantastic news” and is optimistic that she will win her daughter back.

Her five children were taken from her by Dudley Social Services after her ex-partner abused her eldest daughter two years ago. He is now serving a 14 year prison sentence.

She hopes that if she can stop the adoption, she will then be able to win back her other children who are in foster care.

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…

A grassroots uprising against terrorism

Original Date 26th May 2017

One thing I used to do when I was the Member of Parliament for Yardley was to call together meetings of all of the religious organisations in Yardley as a Yardley multi-faith group.  In many ways it is the creation of informal links between people that makes communication easier even if there is no formal decision making power.

Obviously this is something I would intend to do again if the people of Yardley ask me to take on the responsibility of representing them in parliament.

It highlights the sort of thing that politicians can do which arises from a leadership role within communities rather than any constitutional position.

I have already written in an earlier blog post about the principles of resolving conflict.  It can be summarised as "murdering innocents is wrong".

A number of local mosques have issued statements following the atrocity in Manchester and I think it is worth quoting from parts of them.

One said that the mosque "Unequivoc…
