Updated express story

The express story has been updated to include more than was in the printed story.

It now includes the following comments from the British Association of Social Workers:
Nishra Mansuri, of the British Association of Social Workers, recognised the whistleblower’s comments and said: “It’s a major concern. The cuts are creating so much pressure for social workers that the right decisions are not being taken.

“We’re storing up so many problems, but the odds are against us.”

May I remind JH that I have an audio tape of a SW in my home statig 'I want to close the file but my manager has said I have to rewrite my report as you sound too good.' So our ownership of books was turned into a negative 'too much educational emphasis- they own too many books'; our diet 'not enough chicken nuggets and burgers so the children could be bullied if their peers knew of their diet'; mother has an IQ of 158 which means she may lack emotional warmth or be overprotective'. etc etc etc.

John, myself and "Sarah" are becoming increasingly concerned about the media and her case, while we appreciate the media attention and we hope it goes some way to expose all of these types of cased sadly we are frustrated with the lack of factual reporting, over the last two weeks day in day out we spend communicating with Chloe Thomas only to find she had not reported anything we were expecting nor were the facts put to press as we wanted, we are currently having a second look at this now as its not worth us wasting substantial amount of time for the story to be half arsed reported, notwithstanding we are crossing a thin line while we do this

what does 'factual reporting' ever achieve anyway? a promotion to the royal protection squad (for example)? maybe the queen will give the perps some shillings or a medal or soemthing.....? i mean, 'hello'......
if you're not prepared to descend to their level you have already lost.....statement of fact, not a delusion

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. …

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…
