Think this country is a bastion of freedom and justice and a shining model for the world? Think again.
The UK is the only state in the world that gags parents whose children have been taken by Social Services. See The Independent’s Untold Story of Gagging Orders
The UK is the only state in Europe to regularly encourage forced adoption
The UK is the only state in Europe to regularly encourage punishment without crime i.e. the taking of children by Social Services from parents who have not committed any criminal offence
The UK is the only state in Europe taking children for emotional abuse and 'risk of emotional abuse' on the basis of predictions from overpaid 'experts' that one day parents just might harm their children
The UK is the only state in Europe to censor conversation between parents and children in care. Children are left wondering what they have done wrong, as parents are forbidden to explain the situation, or discuss the court case in any way. Phrases such as "I love you and I miss you" are also forbidden under the threat of contact being stopped immediately if the parents 'transgress'.
This is a statement from the website of campaigner Ian Josephs ...
25,000+ families in the UK are destroyed every year by UK secret family courts and the equally secret Court of Protection. What is a democracy? It is surely a country allowing the right of its citizens to protest publicly if they feel oppressed by the state; elections by themselves are no guarantee. Hitler was legally elected, but was revealed as a dictator by suppressing any form of open dissent or protest. In the UK now secret family courts take newborn babies from their mothers for "risk of emotional abuse", give them for adoption to strangers, and JAIL any parent going to the media to protest! Similarly elderly folk are snatched from caring relatives by the court of so called "Protection", and put into expensive private nursing homes, their bank accounts are then looted and houses sold (ejecting their relatives) to pay the fees! If relatives protest to the media they too are JAILED! The democratic right of public protest should be restored to victims of UK secret courts NOW.
The GOS has signed this petition, and urges all his readers to do the same. This evil bureaucratic dictatorship must be eliminated before more families are torn apart.
Another website you should visit is Victims Unite, but if you want to know the facts, this one contains a wealth of links to press coverage, official reports and statistics etc. in support of the statements of campaigners.
For a change, this is not an abuse that was created by politicians, though it's the politicians who have to be forced to solve it. The situation has grown out of our blindness to petty officials who have manipulated the law and public opinion for their own ends. They saw only the opportunity to enhance their own power, and lost sight of the jobs they were appointed to do. Taking refuge behind comfortable clichés like “If it saves the life of just one child ...” they tell us that they are acting purely in the interests of children and may even believe it – but the fact that they think they are acting from the best interests doesn't automatically give them the right to do as they like. And it doesn't give them the right to go about their malicious business in secret.
Don't ignore this issue. Your children or grandchildren could be next. Let's face it, it doesn't take much ...
