Vicky Haigh's case, the Huffington Post and various campaigners

I have written an article about the problems with adversarial family justice on the Huffington Post

My own view is that the adversarial nature of family proceedings have made the whole process much harder to resolve and if any lesson is learnt from this that needs to be learnt.

I have also been criticised for the behaviour of Elizabeth Watson. There are a large number of people in England who are unhappy about the way the legal system operates. She is one of them.

I work with some of these people, but I do not work with others. Elizabeth Watson did contact my office. I advised her to obey the injunction and that her behaviour would be likely to result in her being jailed. I ended up having to ban her from being able to email me. I do not accept any responsibility for her behaviour. The court papers applying to imprison Elizabeth Watson were issued before I raised Vicky Haigh's case in the House of Commons.

I remain of the view that it was wrong for the authorities to attempt to remove Vicky Haigh's daughter at birth and that it was wrong for them to try to imprison her for speaking at the meeting in the House of Commons.

Do you remain in contact with Ms. McNeill and what, if any, advice have you given her with regard to her activities?

What right has this 'Jimmy' to demand such personal information from people? Sounds like a pgyo to me or soem other kind of g-man....they're trained to behave this way, instigating peopel to break the law/ DPA then sell the info to private companis or plaster it all over Tinternet for free...but as John is on the payroll to I gues that makes it friendly fire and thi ******** will undoubtedly be promoted for it.....

all, very very wrong......even if it is considered legal to break the law (???!!!???)

If a tree falls over in the woods and there isn't a government snctioned film crew to record and then later broadcast the event, did the tree really over?
Does it mean thaat tres do not exist? anywhere in the universe?

It seems to me that when those with the power refuse to even investigate then it stands to reason they won't find any evidence. Never min enough to add up to some sort of 'proof'...
In other cases they jail people for many years on 'government employee' hearsay...unless you manage o tape record whaat really happened, manage to hide the evidence until you can somehow get into Court and then when they **** up and you happen to have an honesst judge....wel then they invoke one of the legalised terrorism actss and jail you for ten years for filimg a non physical entity!
The only advice I give people now is to learn to fight and try and keep your head down until the next riot becomes a revolution (i.e. when they win)and then try to re-balance thos scales....

and muchos impressed to see you working late on a bank holiday weekend!

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…

Click here to try the beta test call entre phoning service"John Hemming, who has created an internet Startup called Cirrostratus since he ceased being an MP, is launching a free online service to make life easier for people phoning call centres.   The service is provided by Cirrostratus, but the SIP backbone is provided by the multi-award winning business VoIP solution, Soho66." John said, "Many people find phoning call centres a real pain.  Our service is aiming to make things a lot easier.   One click on alink or the bookmarks list and our server will phone up the call centre and get through all the menus.  This is a lot faster than when people have to phone up and is less irritating." "Additionally the system uses WebRtc and the internet to make the call. This means that people don't find their normal phone system being blocked whilst they hang on the line waiting to speak to a human being." Marketing Manager from Soho66, David McManus, said: &q…

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…
