A good day for bad news!

14th July was a tough day for me as it was the 12th Birthday of my youngest son whom the mother has willfully with held since 19th September 2007 (Parental Alienation), so the fact I was able to hand him a birthday card on his way to school ( with my car parked on the obligatory service station with CCTV) was a double edged sword, as I was glad he appeared OK, his school reports suggest he is doing fine as does the knowledge that he and his team mates had won the local under 12's football league this past season. I was also able on that day to wave to my eldest son who at 15 I barely recognise,but I still had to drive away with that deep feeling of loss almost like a hunger in the pit of my stomach. Why ,when I had done all the right things in Family court was I now here in this isolated place?


This morning I heard Yasmin Alibhai-Brown of The Independent suggest to Nick Ferrari on LBC,suggest there were more important news items to discuss then the ongoing 'Good day for bad news' story that is Murdoch! I had to agree as I believe it is now that Family Justice reform should be top of the news agenda and to some degree was heartened by the other Murdoch stable mate The Times that seemed able to question the current role the press has in advising the public and indeed Camilla Cavendish who for many years has written extensively on Family Law asks in the 14th July edition; 'Will this judge really be on the people's side?' Referring to Lord Justice Leverson who is to investigate Murdoch/Hackingate, she goes on to say; If regulation of the press is too tight it will benefit the corrupt and overpowerful - not the ordinary citizens. I say in light of the Murdoch revelations and David Cameron's extreme efforts to bring the complaints against the Press, Police and indeed the Politicians out in the open, I wish he would show such vigor when it comes to Family Justice which for some time I have regarded as the terrorist from within that undermines children, their families and society as a whole!







MPs demand rethink on allowing media into the family courts: planned access "conflicts with child privacy rights"


14th July 2011
The Justice Select Committee has concluded that provisions in the Children, Schools and Families Act to allow the media into the family courts should be abolished due to conflict with a child's rights to privacy and to have his or her voice heard before decisions are taken that affect his or her life. The report also warns that legal aid cuts will result in more people going to court without lawyers.

As reported by Francis Gibb in the same days edition of the Times, we now see the very same MPs in the form of Sir Alan Beth MP seeking to censor family courts once again ( Camilla Cavendish was in fact on of the first reporters allowed into a court in Ipswich to reveal it's workings) when there is nothing stopping a judge from putting the same safeguards in place for sensitive family courts as they do in criminal court such as Child A, Child B or Family XYZ and where appropriate a reference number could be issued to the press where regulated issues may be addressed and allowed into the public domain, but the censor really has a more sinister reason as does the whole ethos of these secret courts and that is to protect the failing Family court Judges who all too often are able to use court reporters from CAFCASS or the Social Services as scapegoats when they get is wrong and their final judgements prove irreversible and a disaster for the children and families involved!



I was however heartened to find this Click on blog title for more on this;
Then there is tragedy such as this that the system let through their fingers. It is time that society realises that mother's do not always know best an father too should be heard http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-14158604


So as for the 14th July, on a day that should have been marked with celebration for me with my sons , I was later to learn in the local press that my former family home that has housed my children for much of their young lives is to be sold, and probably a name change will finally secure that nail in the coffin of these past 7 years of family law hell!

In the year we saw the last of the World War One ‘Tommy’s’ complete his journey on this earth and many World War Two warriors now considering how many more memorials they will attend especially in foreign lands, we appreciate what their lives and those who did not return stand for in giving us freedom of speech and a quality of life many of us take for granted and my thoughts of my late father a peace loving man facing the horror of war from the rear gunning turret of a Lancaster Bomber.
