Mark and Kerry McDougall (and family)

Mark and Kerry's story has been told in various places. They are now living in Scotland having left Fife because the local authority said Kerry did not have the capacity to marry Mark and look after their son. They now have two children.

Thank you for the update on this lovely family. What is not so lovely however is the details of the behaviour of Fife Social Services.. In the normal scheme of things they would be sued for defamation but they would only hide behind the 'system' and no 'lessons would be learnt' for it is the ordinary taxpayer who would pay for their crimes.. Social Workers need to appreciate that to be considered as a professional they need to have integrity and be personally accountable for their actions.

Standards Board and Ken Livingstone

The link is to the case where Ken Livingstone appealed the decision of the Adjudication Panel for England. The Standards Board and associated Adjudication Panel have done a lot of damage to democracy in the UK. The courts are, however, bringing them into more sanity. The point about Ken Livingstone's case is that it was high profile and he also could afford to appeal. The Standard Board has a problem in that those subject to its enquiries face substantial costs that they cannot claim back. This is an issue that needs further work. In essence the Judge found that what he said brought him into disrepute, but not the office of Mayor. We do need the machinery of the SBE and APE to concentrate on things that matter rather than people being rude to each other.
