Mark and Kerry McDougall

The case of Mark and Kerry McDougall who went to Ireland because she was considered not to have the capacity to marry or look after children is an important case. They have lived with two children in Ireland, but have now returned to Fife. The authorities have suddenly decided to take an interest without any good reason.

This raises serious concerns about the way in which assessments are done in the UK.

It always was going to happen as soon as they returned, they must have been in Ireland for nearly 3 years now,

Fife will never let the family be, they were defeated once previously so now they will come back twice as hard, it may be harsh what I am saying but sadly from experience its all too common these days

I agree with JERRY, Social Services will never give up and in my experience will use their powers illegally.

2 yrs ago I complained to Cornwall Social Services about the conduct and unprofessionalism of its officers.

However; recently I found out the S.S. reported me, twice, to the police and I was criminally investigated, at the time, using 'Vulnerable Adult' ploy. and recorded on the Crime Information System.

My alleged crime, put forward by S.S. - was "concerns raised as (complaint) was over the top and inappropriate"

The second police investigation was due to, as reported by S.S.,I had "worked my way up the management chain" & S.S. thought "this behaviour was completely out of proportion to issued raised"

Are legitimate complaints which S.S. could not provide answers too; an appropriate reasons to have a complainant criminally investigated by the police?

Or where these 'people' simple using the powers illegally to intimidate a complainant

I agree with Jerry - they will not give up.

2yrs ago I complained about the conduct of Cornwall Social Services officers.

Yesterday, 16 Nov 2013, I found out they had reported me to the police for complaining and had me criminally investigated; resulting in a file being recorded on the Crime information system.

According to the police file because the S.S. had - "concerns (as complaint) wildly over the top and inappropriate" and I had "used the management chain, this behaviour was felt to be out of proportion"

Is using a legitimate complaint procedure now against the law in this cess-pit of a country???

& did Cornwall Social Services use their powers illegally to stifle a complaint?

Jerry I agree with you

2yrs ago I complained to Cornwall Social Services about the professional conduct of its staff.

Yesterday, 16 Nov, I found out I had been reported to police twice and investigated, then place on a crime information system.

My crime - according to police file, my complaint to S. S. was "wildly over the top" & I had "used the management chain & this behaviour was 'felt' to be out of proportion"

Is complaining about a public servants behaviour, in this cess-pit of a country, nor a criminal offence???

If you could email me documentary proof of that it would be helpful.

Kerry and Mark's case gets stranger and more disproportionate!

The current public facts are that Fife attempted an injunction in the last few days to protect the identities of the children (identities that are already known the world over) and told Mark he was not allowed to go out to work as it left Kerry alone with the children (children she has been looking after whilst he is working for the last few years with no concerns whatsoever from Irish Social Services).

So if you have learning difficulties, want to make something of yourself, find a good steady man who wants to marry you and provide for the family and wish to live near your own extended family for support then for goodness sake don't live in Fife!!

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

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…
