Our children and young people are in more danger than ever. They need a champion, but are in danger of being handed on a platter fashioned in Downing Street by a prime minister who is too concerned about her own survival to notice that the platter bearer is already tarnished by previous events. Perhaps she might not care even if made aware of the blemish.
Those in politics have a great facility to sweep truth under the carpet when it suits them.Concepts of honour and integrity died a long time ago among the ranks of those occupying seats at Westminster; perhaps the last remnants died with the recently deceased Lord Carrington at the age of 99.
Having already served in Churchill’s postwar government, this peer decided it was the honourable thing to do to resign voluntarily when Argentina invaded the Falklands on his watch as Foreign Secretary under Margaret Thatcher. He believed that the honour of the country was more important than one man’s ambition or position. Boris Johnson – please take note.

If only her grasp of the wishes of the British public was as bold as the outsize necklaces she wears, Britain would be doing fine; as it is, we are floundering from one silly situation to another. As for Boris Johnson – God protect us from another crisis provoking Trump.
Where or where are the Statesmen/women/people that made Britain GREAT?????

The plot thickens and the Sheriff of Glamorgan holds the key to what exactly is going on – but I reckon even he has lost the plot en route.
In the name of humanity and the Almighty, let this man have justice – and peace in his old age.

This formula sounds too bland and likely to produce more of the same since too many of the same people are going to be running the programme.
What is needed are people with experience of dealing with the results of what has gone into the making of the situation in the first place and handling the ‘debris’ with compassion and sensitivity.
The aim is to save children and their families from the current traumatic situations that have arisen through years of insensitive ‘do-gooders’ making mountains out of mole-hills by believing THEY have the answer/solution to all problems and situations. This has resulted in devastating the lives of whole families; although we have only witnessed and been allowed to see proof of the results in recent years because of the clandestine nature of officialdom.

There is something sinister about having to offer cash incentives to people to look after children and even more so when you realise many do it purely for the money so liberally handed out by local authorities. I have to admit that I have been privileged to meet some wonderful people who have fostered and even adopted children placed in their care.
It’s taken a long time for the truth to be given prominence and highlighted by those with the courage to do so. It is to hoped that we may benefit from the many previous mistakes and more checks are made on those who claim they want to care for those children who need fostering or adopting because they have actually been orphaned or abandoned so no more parents have to suffer the trauma of their children being forcibly removed to be adopted by strangers.

Compassion and understanding are key requisites for helping someone living with dementia. I wish it were possible to buy this as a present for far too many who, through their ignorance of the condition are rendered insensitive and often unintentionally cruel. via Alzheimers the hidden treasure #caregivers #alzheimers #haibun
