On the hierarchy of jurisdictions and differences between legal systems and policies. Always good intentions and bad outcomes, it seems. But maybe it helps to refer to EU and UN documents in the UK context?

From the UNITED NATIONS:

This Report was produced by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. Dated 8 July 2014, it contains concluding observations on the report submitted by the UK on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography.

It expresses concern about the lack of coordination between various governments, institutions and other bodies across the State and makes recommendations in para 16 and 18, 20, 24, 26, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37 and, especially 39:

(a) Establish mechanisms and procedures to protect the rights of child victims of offences covered by the Optional Protocol, including establishing a…

What Happens When Family Courts Prioritise Parental Rights Over The Rights Of The Child?

Originally posted on Researching Reform:

At Researching Reform, we would say significant damage to a child’s healthy development at best, and at worst, the loss of that child’s life.

Important case studies presented at a 2003 conference held bythe Australian Institute of Criminologyhighlight the very real problems inside family courts which use similar models to our own.

In the first case study, a mother tells the story of how she abducted her young daughter to protect her from a then absent father who had been convicted of child sexual abuse. He returned out of spite to obtain custody of their daughter, and the daughter has since complained of being routinely abused by her father. But no one is listening.

The second case study, which is added below, is written by the daughter and tells the story of her family history, from her perspective.

These cases highlight how justice systems fail families and children…

Say it in pictures and SING: hope despite #ForcedAdoptions Imposed by UK Judges, against Parents’ Wills, in Secret Family Courts?

This video speaks beautifully and SADLY for itself…

I wanted to show it directly rather than ‘reblog’ from where I saw it: Summer 2015 Forced Adoption Video on Child Care Proceedings Exposed.

May emails triggered by your signatures to this petition contribute to the discussions in Strasbourg and Brussels!!!

It started as “Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent”. But I changed the title to reflect the progress we made and the fortuitous challenge we have!

Three petitions are dead. Long live a Witness Statement and #EU Debates #WhistleblowerKids

Originally posted on In the Best Interests of the 'Whistleblower Kids'?:


15 07 17 PetitionChange.org have done it again – listen to paedos, shills, trolls, hoaxers rather than appreciate the battles we’re fighting: they removed the third petition, with 1,184 signatures last time I looked.

So the only petition that is left for you to sign and share is

The title used to be Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent. But now we have this fabulous chance of supporting

  1. a debate in the EU Parliament of 751 Parliamentarians on 07 September 2015
  2. a debate among the Heads of the 28 Member States in the EU Council on 15/16 October 2015. 

PLEASE do sign! It’s worth it! Change.org has the great advantage of triggering emails to the ‘target’ of the petition. So the leaders of the political groups who most democratically schedule the debates will see that this is what we want: every single…

Is pressure to speed up adoptions leaving children out in the cold? | Louise Tickle

Sabine Kurjo McNeill:

I am just working on the errors in the report on Adoptions without Consent commissioned by the EU Petitions Committee: only 5 – 7% of children in ‘care’ get adopted. And 96% of those adoptions are FORCED, i.e. imposed by judges in secret family courts – against the parents’ wills – thus ruining the children’s lives!
