LORD MACDONALD SHOULD BE CRITICISING CAROLINE FLACK'S DEATH SENTENCE NOT JUSTIFYING IT

Lord Macdonald defends the indefensible. He admits the inattention, paid to those violated by inappropriate decisions to prosecute, who are suffering mental anxiety and illness, but puts it down to budget constraints. He points to the irrelevant argument that victims can be put under pressure or manipulation by their assailants, evidently not applicable in this case. He misunderstands the pernicious and self interested use by police and the CPS of high profile cases to vaunt themselves and their own procedures.  Particular care must be taken when handling celebrities, because they are instantly 'punished' the moment the police become involved. This is exacerbated by a decision to prosecute and  intensified further by the imposition of an asinine and inhumane bail condition.  It proved to be a death penalty and the police, the CPS and Lord Macdonald should be reviewing seriously their murderous approaches, rather than smugly justifying them.

SHAME ON THE POLICE, CPS, COURT, MEDIA AND PUBLIC FOR DRIVING CAROLINE FLACK TO SUICIDE

Caroline Flack would be alive today if the police and the Crown Prosecution Service hadn't showcased the difficulties that had arisen, no doubt transiently, within her personal relationship. Opportunistically riding on her celebrity status, the police leaked information about the case, the CPS and court crashed around the vulnerable interface between her and Lewis Burton like a bull in a china shop, the media vultures had a feeding frenzy and internet trolls disgorged all their vitriol upon her. Instead of facilitating the desire of Burton and Flack to be reconciled and restored, the CPS pressed charges and the court inhumanely, insensitively and crassly imposed the bail condition consigning Flack into an enforced solitude, at the very time she needed so acutely to communicate with Burton. Of course this modern day tragedy is set within a context of Love Island that promotes artificiality, pretence, surgically enhanced 'beauty' and the allurement and curse of fame, that like the Midas touch leads so often to despair, isolation and continual torment. People are essentially fragile, hiding their insecurities behind whatever front is available. Members of the police, courts, media and public must all hang their heads in shame and sorrow for the part they played in bringing about Caroline's heartache and suicide.

Please spread the message to every young wannabee that fame is a curse to be avoided at all costs. The most beautiful part of life is anonymity and normality. Nothing compares to the innocent wonder of those two basic things. We are all so intricately fragile. Very few can cope happily with fame and the vicious exposure that results.

STOP GENDER DISCRIMINATION IN SCHOOL UNIFORM

Shame these last vestiges of gender discrimination that continue unassailed in the private and public sector. Restricting the freedom of girls in long skirts is as unacceptable as requiring them to wear a skirt of any length. Differentiation in attire on the basis of gender must be a personal choice and there must be a range of options in institutions that cover both variation and uniformity. At a time when debate is fierce about the coerced wearing of the hijab, niqab, burka, al-amira, shayla, khimar or chador by women, an article espousing the coerced disadvantaging of girls through an imposed dress code is retrograde.

THE MONARCH BUTTERFLIES SHOW THAT GOD KNOWS WHO MURDERED HOMERO GOMEZ GONZALEZ

The murder of Homero Gomez Gonzalez and now Raul Herandez Romero exposes the corruption and complicity that contaminates Mexico. Officials have declared that the deaths are unsuspicious, even unrelated and are not linked to their involvement with the outstanding butterfly sanctuary, that provides refuge to the million Monarch butterflies that migrate there each year from Canada, but which is threatened by illegal logging and avocado production. Since 2006, 60,000 people have disappeared, presumed murdered by criminal gangs.  Apparently, during Gonzalez's funeral a kaleidoscope of Monarch butterflies fluttered into the church. Let it be a warning, that the wicked can destroy the fragile, but God, nature and the world is watching and all evil will be held to account.

FRANCE MIRED IN PAEDOPHILIA

With a president married to the teacher that groomed him at 15, France descends to new lows by nominating Roman Polanski's new film for 12 'French Oscars', despite his statutory rape of a 13 year old child, over which he is still on the run. France's ambivalence towards sexual abuse is sickening and poses a direct threat to every French child.

THE POLICE MUST STOP ACTING LIKE THE GESTAPO AND LEAVE HARRY MILLER ALONE

Finally, a ruling from the courts that resists the tide of censorship and gagging and halts the police in their harassment and intimidation of the brave who speak out rationally on issues of major importance. Enough of the police's hateful tactics of early morning and work place visits or arrests for free speakers, free writers and free thinkers, upon which the freedom and democracy of our country depends. Enough of the police interrogations and threats of 'Non Crime Hate Incident' reports befouling the Enhanced Police Records of the innocent, all hidden from the public eye, as a means to bully, silence and stifle the flow of information and the intellectual engagement over vexing issues.

The law is being shown to be an ass, its enforcers, confused and humiliated and the innocent, harassed and criminalised. There must be clarity for the public about what is permissible in public discourse and the dissemination of information. At present, in the confluence of legislation, any communicator can find themselves at the mercy of the resultin capricious approach to freedom of speech.

PETERBOROUGH'S NEW CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL IS A STEP BACKWARDS

Religions must not be allowed to use their financial and corporate strength, nor arguments about diversity and equality, to continue to inveigle their way into education. There is a dishonesty at large, that resigns religion to a pre-enlightened era, while allowing its accumulated wealth to dictate policy today. We must ensure children's minds are left unfettered, to explore, research and understand the world through knowledge and experience. While they may be shackled and indoctrinated at home or in their communities, schools should provide a place of rationality and objectivity. Linking access to education with religious observance is invidious and corrupt and invites hypocrisy and deceit. If religions are to provide education, the schools must be open to all and must not be permitted to impose their worship or religious instruction on the pupils.

OBSESSED WITH BREXIT, MEGXIT, THE KARDASHIANS AND LOVE ISLAND WE LEAVE THE CHILDREN TO BLEED

News has become entertainment, an addiction for the latest buzz, an opportunity to titillate or tease, a click bait enterprise to secure interest and boost profits. It is not about what is vital news, urgent crises, desperate injustices, the plight of the poorest, weakest, most beleaguered. Well, again, it is, when it's their turn to feed the headline machine, but because there is no real concern or engagement with their agony, their bleeding and weeping gets sidelined, because some trivia will garner greater attention. We are becoming ever more degenerate, even in the essential information sharing that our news outlets should be. The world's children are suffering unimaginably. We must not let them out of our sights and must hold those responsible to account.

JUSTIN WELBY POINTS OUT THE OBVIOUS - THE CHURCH IS INSTITUTIONALLY RACIST

The Church of England and Christianity is institutionally racist. Its historical and biblical roots have supported, even spawned apartheid, slavery, the torture and murder of the crusades and submission to oppressive, even corrupt regimes. Unless there is a profound repentance for the flaws within its message and structure and systemic reform, it will have no relevance in the future and will be doomed.

It must be honest in tackling instances in its scriptures where Jesus was racist, for instance, rejecting a woman in desperate need, because she came from a different race, even abusing her by likening her to a dog under his table. He needed to be confronted by her, challenged by her and re-educated by her. The church tries to cover this up, justifying it instead of being shocked by it. They teach that Jesus was sinless and by so doing, suggest a racist response is acceptable. These core weaknesses to its central message must be reformed, if it is to be taken seriously as being a faith for all people.

THE LAW GAGS 300 STUDENTS AND THREATENS THEM IF THEY DIVULGE THEY WERE SEXUALLY ABUSED

It is opprobrious for the law to be used to gag the victims of sexual abuse and threaten them with expulsion or legal action, should they dare to cause their universities or abusers 'embarrassment' by speaking of having been sexually abused.  This is not justice but corruption and bribery. It creates the unthinkable obliquity of  the police, lawyers and the courts being dragged in on the side of the abusers to silence the victims. It is the sort of malignancy that can arise systemically and must be resolved or it threatens the whole.

IN MEMORY OF DETECTIVE CONSTABLE KAREN FRANCE

I had the privilege of taking the funeral for Karen today, as she received a police escort and as police packed the crematorium. She set up the first Metropolitan Police Service team investigating child sexual exploitation, was responsible for the term ‘safeguarding’ and worked in Specialist Command stopping perpetrators of child abuse. She was beautiful within and without, radiating light and goodness, aspiring to make the world a better place and determined to protect children. It was such an honour being asked to take her funeral, particularly as my wife and I are committed campaigners for better child protection.
 
One of her inspirations was the following moving and profound song by Walter Earl Brown, himself inspired by the words of Martin Luther King:
IF I CAN DREAM
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue
If i can dream of a better land
Where all my people walk hand in hand
Tell me why, oh why, oh why can't my dream come true

There must be peace and understanding sometime
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
All the doubt and fear
If i can dream of a warmer sun
Where hope keeps shining on everyone
Tell me why, oh why, oh why won't that sun appear

We're lost in a cloud
With too much rain
We're trapped in a world
That's troubled with pain

But as long as people 
Have the strength to dream
They can redeem their souls and fly

Deep in my heart there's a trembling question
Still I am sure that the answers
gonna come somehow
Out there in the dark
There's a beckoning candle,
And while I can think, while I can talk
While I can stand, while I can walk
While I can dream
Oh please let my dream
Come true
Right now
Let it come true right now
Because of Karen’s dedication, exemplary commitment and tireless police service, for many children, the dream of being rescued from their abusers came true.

A WARNING FOLLOWING OUR MEETING WITH OUR M.P., SIR DAVID EVENNETT, OVER THE AGE OF CONSENT

My wife and I believe that children, those aged under 18, must be protected from predatory adults. At present, an adult of any age can have sex with a 16 year old by 'mutual' consent. At present, a teacher, doctor, care worker, police officer etc of any age, can have sex with a 16 year old by 'mutual' consent, as long as they do not have a professional responsibility over them. For example Bryan Schalch, a 42 year old married teacher with children, was described as "immoral" but cleared by the judge at Warwick Crown Court, for having had sex with his 17 year old private tutee, because she was a pupil at another school. We wanted to propose a reform that would have prohibited any professional with responsibility for children, from having sexual relations with any child, i.e. not just children with whom they were professionally involved.
Sir Evennett thought this would not be possible to enshrine clearly in law.
We then asked about leaving the age of consent at 16 for peer relationships, i.e. between 16 and 17 year olds, but  raising the age of consent to 18 in relation to adults.
He said that he would support raising the age of consent completely to 18, but that in 40 years of being an M.P. no constituent had raised the age of consent with him before, and the general momentum, supported by the Labour party was to drive down the threshold of adulthood generally for voting puposes etc to 16, and that therefore it would not be achievable. Having a two stage system of consent he also thought would be legally fraught with problems.
He said parents had to be vigilant for those intent on abusing their children.

SO HERE A WARNING.

PARENTAL ALERT.

A TEACHER CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD
A POLICE OFFICER CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD
A PRIEST CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD
A SOCIAL WORKER CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD
A CARE WORKER CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD
A DOCTOR CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD ETC ETC

IF THEY ARE NOT EMPLOYED WITH A  RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR CHILD.

JUST AS A 40 YEAR OLD, A 50 YEAR OLD, A 60 YEAR OLD ETC CAN HAVE SEX LEGALLY WITH YOUR 16 YEAR OLD CHILD...

THEREFORE DO NOT TRUST ANY SUCH ADULT IF THEY HAVE CONTACT WITH YOUR CHILD - THEY PRESENT A THREAT - A DEVASTATING DANGER - A LIFE WRECKING PERIL.
