It would help my record keeping if you sent me an email stating VERY simply your first name and those of your children or grand children plus their ages, your contact phone number (mobiles are ok), when the ss took them or threatened to take them and the reasons given by the judge or ss in two or three words only, eg emotional abuse, learning difficulties, domestic violence, drug or alcohol problems, unexplained injuries, failure to thrive, personality disorders, cluttered house, missed appointments, absences from school, dirty children’s clothes etc.
Please note, I am not a solicitor or barrister, but I do have a law degree from Oxford University and advise hundreds of parents every year (free of charge) on how to fight and sometimes win against social services.
IMPORTANT:- I am a businessman with language schools in Monaco and elsewhere. See www.regencyschool.com and www.hli.co.uk! The “SS” have never hurt me, my family or my friends, but I hate injustice and hate even more the secret courts that steal children from loving parents.
I first encountered these courts as a Kent County Councillor in 1960 – 66 applying for the discharge of care orders on behalf of parents in court against my own Council (before the Children Act 1989 stopped lay advisors from doing this) and I never lost a case! (see History) That is why I NEVER take any money from parents for expenses or anything else.
I often refund parents “travel expenses” so that PREGNANT MOTHERS can escape to Ireland, where there is NO forced adoption.(no passports needed).
If anyone you consult tries to charge you MONEY to help you, please pay them NOTHING, as a lot of crooks operate on the internet taking cash from those who can least afford it, and doing NOTHING in return!
ABOLISH FORCED ADOPTION!!
STOP PUNISHMENT WITHOUT CRIME!!
My name is IAN JOSEPHS. I repeat again, UK Social Services have never hurt me, my family or my friends, but their wicked abuse of power has simply shocked me into action! “Forced adoption” too often legally deprives healthy, happy children from all contact with their loving parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents and other relatives for the rest of their lives!
The UK is the ONLY country in Europe (apart from Croatia and perhaps Portugal) to tolerate “forced adoption” (adoption of children against the will of the parents).
Adoption is a wonderful thing for abandoned and neglected children if it is TRULY VOLUNTARY, but is a wicked deed that should be severely punished, if forced through the courts against the will and frantic opposition of loving parents.
Worse still, these parent VICTIMS are ruthlessly gagged!! Yes, here in the UK, secret courts jail parents who dare to protest publicly when social workers take their babies at birth and arrange for them to be adopted by strangers.
ONLY in the UK and NOWHERE ELSE IN THE WHOLE WORLD do they GAG parents whose children have been “confiscated”. Some “lucky” mothers who discovered where their adopted children were living, have been jailed for ringing the doorbell, waving at the children in the street or sending them a Xmas card (three real cases and 3 mothers jailed!) on the grounds that they were undermining the forced adoption and committing a breach of the peace.
Forgive me, if I repeat myself too often in this “exposé” of the “SS” and the family courts, but the average person simply cannot believe that such things happen in “democratic Britain”. Well,believe me they do! Repetition is necessary to reinforce your belief!
The UK is the ONLY country in Europe (apart from Croatia and perhaps Portugal) to tolerate the barbaric practice of forced adoption. The severing of all contact FOR LIFE between children and their birth parents. In effect a LIFE sentence without the opportunity of being heard by a jury, often imposed on parents who have committed no crime but who are said to be a risk to their children, following predictions by overpaid charlatans working closely with the local authority.
Yes, the UK family courts then mete out “PUNISHMENT WITHOUT CRIME“. The ONLY people in the UK who are punished without crime are parents whose children have been “confiscated” not by the hundreds but by the thousands; many because they are said to be “at risk” of emotional abuse!
The Family Courts presume parents once accused by social services, are guilty of abusing or neglecting their children unless they can prove their innocence (which rarely happens!).
Even worse: the UK is the ONLY country in the world to GAG parents who wish to protest publicly when their children are taken.
The right of all citizens to protest publicly against what they perceive to be oppression by the State is what separates democracy from tyranny.
Long may it remain so!
Are there really parents who are punished by the State when they have committed no crimes?? YES !!
The ONLY people in the UK who suffer this injustice are parents whose children are taken away after so called “experts” make predictions of the future such as “risk of emotional abuse”.
Most mothers would receive better and fairer treatment from the court, if they killed their children (and benefited from the protection of criminal procedure) rather than tangle with the cold ferocity that demolishes 99.75% (judicial statistics) of the unfortunate parents who appear before the stern “establishment” judges sitting in our UK family courts.
In other European countries such as France, Spain and Italy, “the family” is almost “sacred”. They just cannot believe the barbarity of social workers in the UK, when they take newborn babies from their mothers for “risk of emotional abuse”, a concept completely unknown on the continent. Indeed, the whole idea of “emotional abuse” is met with incredulity!
The three essential reforms we need are:-
1:- Freedom of SPEECH for parents at all times.
2:- Final hearings to be heard by JURIES.
3:- An end to the Punishment of parents who have not committed any CRIME.
Forced adoption is doubly wicked because it is a “life sentence” where the adopted children are permanently deprived of contact not only with their parents but also with their adult siblings, grandparents,aunts, and uncles. The parents are ruthlessly jailed by secret courts (more than 200 per year) if they dare to protest publicly or reveal identities of any witnesses.
Worse still blameless brothers and sisters are more often than not adopted separately and are forced to lose all contact with each other as well as with the rest of their families(grandparents etc) at least until they are 18 and usually for the rest of their lives.The damage done to these children by heartless judges is simply horrendous……
“What about Baby P?” I hear you cry! Well, physically injured children like baby P, Victoria Climbé and others are not good adoption material. They are in any case avoided like the plague, if there is a brutal and often drunken boyfriend or stepfather on the premises to intimidate the social workers. Such children are more often than not, callously left to die! Meanwhile social workers move on to easier targets and accuse respectable and more compliant parents (especially single mothers) of posing a “risk of emotional abuse” to their children, and even to their unborn babies! That is how the “SS” work now.
