'European Commissioner for Human Rights questions legitimacy of European Mental Capacity legislation'

The link is to a comment by the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe in which he says, inter alia, "Persons with intellectual and psycho-social disabilities are today routinely placed under a guardianship regime in several European countries - they are deprived of their “legal capacity”. In the eyes of the law they are seen as non-persons and their decisions have no legal relevance. This policy violates agreed human rights standards."

I have always thought this to some extent in any way.

couldn't really let that one go by without saying soemthing....but I am getting more than a lil sick of constantly explaining the blatantly obvious to numpties on this planet....

in reality there is NO SUCH THING as a mental illness- humans are complex emotional beings by their very nature....evrybody is different....arguably the only ones with 'something wrong with them' are the one's who go around unilaterally deciding who is and who isn't...they dnt even accuse their victim of anything....just attack and bad mouth people behind their backs....not even pretense of a jury, judge or any 'legal process'...

same page though....post on conscientious objectors to military service....didn't know that/ but just isn't true in practice.....but how is that any different to a 'campaign of civil disobedience'? and presumably not legal to violetly attack pople who do that sort of thing...pre-emptively or otherwise!

another recent article...suspected pigyobs attacked this guy with dogs, sveral dozen of them, heavily armed wearing masks (not the dogs)...didn't say anything, deliberately drove a van into him....never accused him of breaking any law or anything...but apparently they used the fact that he tried to defend himself (no evidence of that either) as 'evidence' of a mental illness...not that he had any chance of defending agains the accusation by the time they got around to accusing...already chemically labotimised several months previous and fried with electrodes to the brain....vegetable, basically.....how absurd is that?

anybody that does any work, paid or otherwise, for this govt/ gang is just as guilty....it's the law apparently! not that i'm any kind of naval vessle, obviously.....

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

I have only just found this one which I think is accurately reported below (but if it is not please give me an accurate report).

KING’S BENCH DIVISION

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.

LORD HEWART CJ:
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…
