the realities of the uk government child kidnapping system - read it!

“The purpose of all this, funded by hundreds of millions of pounds of public money, is partly to keep in being the vast fostering industry, run by dozens of agencies, often owned by ex-social workers, which also receive £20,000 a year for each child they place...”

“Parents are forbidden to talk to the media or even to their MPs about the injustice they are suffering. Several times in recent months, councils have sought injunctions to prohibit me reporting anything at all about a case, even though no person or even the council itself would be identified. More than once, parents have been threatened with contempt of court and prison if they talk to me or anyone else about how they are being treated.”

“For parents who fall foul of this system, often on no more evidence than malicious hearsay, the first shock is to find themselves treated like dangerous criminals. To seize children, social workers seem able to enlist the unquestioning support of the police, who arrive mob-handed, six or eight at a time, beating down doors, tearing babies from their mothers' arms, holding parents in custody for up to 36 hours while their children are removed into foster care.

“The parents must then wrestle with a Kafka-esque system rigged against them in every way. They find themselves in courts where every normal principle of British justice has been stood on its head. Social workers may give written evidence to a judge which the parents aren't allowed to see. The most outrageous hearsay evidence may be accepted by the court without the parents even being allowed to cross-examine on it.”

birbalsingh goes blogging at eton on behalf of the smellygraph - responsibility

An insight into what is wrong with the state ‘education’ cartel.

“I lean my head to the side. “Yes, but hasn’t there ever been a really bright boy, one who you’ve always thought was so clever, who hasn’t got in?”

“They agree that sometimes that happens, that there was one boy from a couple of years ago, who was superb and yet somehow, he didn’t get in.

“ “Why do you think that was?” I probe.

“They shrug again. “He must have messed up at interview.”

“I shake my head, rejecting their polite conversation. “No, no, don’t you think that maybe there is a bias against you boys? Being from Eton and all?”

“They shake their heads vigorously. “No, no… it will have been because he messed up… maybe on the exam…”

“I keep going. I’m not satisfied with all this business of taking responsibility for oneself. I mean, they’re kids after all, and kids make excuses for themselves. At least most of the kids I know, do.

“ “Doesn’t it annoy you that some state school kids might gain places because of their potential, rather than their achievements? That some of you might have more A grades, more accolades, more to show for yourselves and yet they get a place instead of you?”

“One of the boys draws back from me as if I’ve said something dreadful. He frowns. “But we’ve had advantages that they haven’t had. They haven’t had the privilege of our education.”

“I am literally stunned into silence. ”

sure start error in tory policy

Full transcript of George Osborne’s speech.

“And we will also provide support for the early years of our children. The increased entitlement to 15 hours a week free education for all three and four year olds - introduced under this government - will continue. Sure Start services will be protected in cash terms, and the programme will be focused on its original purpose. And we will help them further by introducing, for the very first time, 15 free hours of early education and care for all disadvantaged two year olds.

“So that these children have a chance in life and are ready, like the rest of their class mates, for schools.”

The most vital years of education deprivation are the very youngest years, from birth onwards.

Waiting until the age of two misses the point.

Further, as far as cooperation can be achieved, it is important that carers are taught to enhance the early development of children’s learning, and thus that those adults are incorporated into creche/ education development.

Waiting until the age of two, let alone three, heavily undermines any substantial value emanating from early education/learning.

90 year old debo mitford finally writes her point of view

“Now that the 20th century is over, it is possible to see more clearly how utterly different life has been for those born in its second half than it was for those born in its first. I was born in 1956, and no bereavement, war, revolution, injury or financial crash has seriously intruded upon my life. My situation is not uncommon. Debo Devonshire was born in 1920, so the world of her own generation was turned upside down. Because of the gigantic loss of life in the First World War, and the apparent moral completeness of victory in the Second, the British tend to underplay the trauma of 1939-45. But those who went through it know different. She tells what it was like.”

text of benedict’s speech at westminster hall

As usual, I’m near to saddened at the stream of so-called fossil media ‘reporters’ trying to spin (or precis) Benedict’s speech, but failing to report it!

“The central question at issue, then, is this: where is the ethical foundation for political choices to be found? The Catholic tradition maintains that the objective norms governing right action are accessible to reason, prescinding from the content of revelation. According to this understanding, the role of religion in political debate is not so much to supply these norms, as if they could not be known by non-believers – still less to propose concrete political solutions, which would lie altogether outside the competence of religion – but rather to help purify and shed light upon the application of reason to the discovery of objective moral principles. This “corrective” role of religion vis-à-vis reason is not always welcomed, though, partly because distorted forms of religion, such as sectarianism and fundamentalism, can be seen to create serious social problems themselves. And in their turn, these distortions of religion arise when insufficient attention is given to the purifying and structuring role of reason within religion. It is a two-way process. Without the corrective supplied by religion, though, reason too can fall prey to distortions, as when it is manipulated by ideology, or applied in a partial way that fails to take full account of the dignity of the human person. Such misuse of reason, after all, was what gave rise to the slave trade in the first place and to many other social evils, not least the totalitarian ideologies of the twentieth century. This is why I would suggest that the world of reason and the world of faith – the world of secular rationality and the world of religious belief – need one another and should not be afraid to enter into a profound and ongoing dialogue, for the good of our civilization.”

The word ‘prescinding is probably a mistranscription. I think that he meant ‘proceeding, but his accent and grasp of English allows the confusion in transcribing. Nor is the text of that paragraph clear enough to be certain.

And this is probably the critical paragraph in his speech.

A full live recording is here, 15:15 minutes long.

hawking - amusing logical skewering of another fake

“What Hawking appears to have done is to confuse law with agency. His call on us to choose between God and physics is a bit like someone demanding that we choose between aeronautical engineer Sir Frank Whittle and the laws of physics to explain the jet engine.”

“...because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing.” [Stephen Hawking, allegedly]

The semantics of the madhouse.

interesting and wide review of the national socialist massacre in oradour, france

“Around 2 p.m. on 10 June 1944, four days after the Allied invasion of Normandy, approximately 150 Waffen-SS soldiers entered the tranquil village of Oradour-sur-Glane in the Limosin region of south central France. For no apparent reason, Hitler's elite troops destroyed every building in this peaceful village and brutally murdered a total of 642 innocent men, women and children, an unexplained tragedy which has gone down in history as one of the worst war crimes committed by the German army in World War II.”

“The Oradour church only had a seating capacity of 350 persons, but 245 frightened women and 207 sobbing children were forced inside at gunpoint while the men were still sitting on the grass of the Fairgrounds, awaiting their fate. The women and children were locked inside the church while the SS soldiers systematically looted all the homes in this prosperous farming village. Then around 4 p.m. a couple of SS soldiers carried a gas bomb inside this holy place and set it off, filling the church with a cloud of noxious black smoke. Their intention had been to asphyxiate the women and children in the House of God, but their plan failed.

“As the women and children pressed against the doors, trying to escape and struggling to breathe, SS soldiers then entered the crowded, smoke-filled church and fired hundreds of shots at the hapless victims, while other SS men stood outside ready to machine-gun anyone who attempted to escape. The soldiers fired low inside the church in order to hit the small children. Babies in their prams were blown up by hand grenades, filled with gas, that were tossed into the church. Then brushwood and straw was carried into the stone church and piled on top of the writhing bodies of those that were not yet dead. The church was then set on fire, burning alive the women and babies who had only been wounded by the shots and the grenades. The clamour coming from the church could be heard for a distance of two kilometers, according the Bishop's office report.”

stealing children for idealism - then and now

These two items to be read in conjunction.

“There could have been few more bizarre meetings anywhere in Britain last week than that between a married mother and the social workers who had taken her six young children to place them unhappily in foster care. The officials, of a council I cannot name, are fixated with the idea that this respectable Christian is a "sex worker", whose children all have different fathers and who is engaged in "child trafficking".

“They appear to have no evidence for these charges other than the hearsay surmising of a single "witness".” [Quoted from telegraph.co.uk]

“After decades of hushed shame, the children of the Lebensborn program to create a blond, blue-eyed master race have started to speak out. Topic number one is the painful search for their true parents. And then that nagging question: "Was my father a war criminal?"

“Guntram Weber, 63, found out his father was an SS major-general who escaped a death sentence for war crimes. They were bred to be the elite of Hitler's 1,000-year Reich but ended up cowed by shame, alienation and uncertainty for decades.” [Quoted from spiegel.de]

Marker at abelard.org

“1939 began one of the most horrible aspects of Lebensborn policy: the kidnapping of the 'racially good' children from the eastern occupied countries. Himmler resolved to deport from occupied parts of Poland to the Reich, in order to be individually settled and thereby uprooted as a people approximately four million persons of 'good racial extraction'. Himmler gave the outline of the whole action in his 1940 memorandum. It provided for an annual selection on racial grounds of Polish children aged from six to ten, and their taking away for Germanization. Himmler stated:

“ "It is our duty to take [the children] with us to remove them from their environment, is necessary by robbing or stealing them. Either we win over any good blood that we can use for ourselves and give it a place in our people or we destroy this blood" (Sosnowski, 1983, p. 49).” [Quoted from colanmc.siu.edu]
