"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: "This is a very
exciting and valuable service for customers that John and ourselves feel
will benefit all parties - including the businesses who operate the call
centres themselves.

"This is because it makes them more accessible to their own customer
base and less off-putting when it comes to having to ring them for
something, increasing their customer friendliness."

John said, "If people find the WebRtc links to the phone system
something useful they can set up their own account on our servers. By
creating an account with Soho66 they can receive calls from people using
telephones and also make calls to the telephone system as well as use
web rtc for video calls."

"The system currently only works on recent versions of the Chrome
Browser, but we expect to be able to implement versions for Edge and
Firefox in the future.  It uses advanced web techniques such as WebRtc
and sharedworkers which not all broswer companies have implemented properly."

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

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…
