Subject: Dedication

I am so happy to see that World Rock Against Dementia Day is dedicating event in honor of my Dad. Glen Campbell.

Thank you so much.

Debby Campbell.

“ROCK ” Is just a generic word for ALL types of music and we hope that next years WRAD will be bigger and better than ever. So many countries across the globe joined in on the day for the last two years events and we are hoping our third-year, March 24th 2018 we will have even more countries around the world joining us.

Here in the UK where I am based, I would like to ask yourself, and all you know, to put on an event on this day and raise funds for whatever charity organisation YOU WANT TOO. Yes !! I am not asking you to raise money for us, but to raise it for yourselves or whatever organisation you see fit !! All I would like you to do is let us know where the event is and a little about it so we can put you on our World map!! If you are OUTSIDE the UK please DO THE SAME and let us know what you are doing

March 2018 may seem a long way off but when organising an event it soon flies by, believe me lol, so please please hold an event, no matter how small, no matter how big, it can be a few of you round the table having a coffee listening to music, to an all ticket venue with groups and singers etc, the choice is yours, whatever suits you is fine by us, just make sure you have a great time and tell us all about it

Hope to hear from you very soon, Norrms Mc Namara

Earlier this week Mr Barnier announced he was not open to a free trade agreement including financial services.

However, senior Brussels figures, including President of the EU Commission Jean Claude Juncker, are said to be “not happy” with the announcement which was unauthorised.

A senior Government source said: “Nobody pays any attention to what Barnier says in Brussels, yet in Britain, it is oddly taken as EU gospel when it is not.

A good question for in the Tories austerity campaign there appears to be no room for manoeuvre to allow any reasonable adjustments for disabled people.

Will any existing European Union legislation be maintained into UK law and furthermore will EU legislation coming through be also included. Without these current and forthcoming EU legislations the outlook for disabled people will be even more depressing and unequal as it is already.

All of the UK needs to unify behind ensuring that disabled people now and after Brexit are not abandoned by this Tory Government, as you may also become disabled within your lifetime. Think of others like you would for yourself and your own family, otherwise the life for disabled will be far worse than it is now and now is not as good as it should be.

Until everyone accepts that abuse is never acceptable then abusive situations will continue to occur. In a physical action of abuse then any associated injuries are more likely to be noticed, but with verbal, written and on-live abusive situations then injuries could well be invisible, but injuries there will be and in some instances some injuries which there may never be a recovery from.

The actions taken against all abusers should be effective and fit the crime to ensure all prospective abusers know what to expect if they start or continue to be abusive.

But many conduct themselves in accordance with the Children’s Nursery Rhyme ‘Sticks and Stones’ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sticks_and_Stones) ending as ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me.’, but in reality this is far from the truth as words can and in many instances are worse than ‘sticks and stones’ , for broken bones can be mended in time, but not necessarily the invisible ‘hurt from ‘words’.

Verbal and on-line abuse needs to be taken more seriously and all areas where this can occur need to deal with it more effectively, be they employers, retail venues, schools, churches and all other areas.

Finsbury Park Poundland attack: ‘Staff did nothing to help abused disabled woman’

A BARGAIN chain store has come under fire after one shopper witnessed a disabled woman get attacked while staff did nothing to help.

Journalist Katharine Quarmby was in Poundland in Finsbury Park last Friday when she saw a mother with a pushchair shouting abuse at a disabled woman.

“I think there was an argument about who was first in the queue for the till,” said Ms Quarmby. “The mum started abusing the woman and told her to lose weight and saying stuff which was unacceptable. It culminated in the woman having to say ‘please stop I’m disabled’. She had a catheter attached to the shopping trolley.”

Ms Quarmby, who works pro bono at the…

The Government has been accused of “evading” disability rights by ignoring the recommendations of a major UN committee, in what has been described as a “continuing retrogression” of disabled people’s rights in the UK. Disability organisations from across the country have accused ministers of ignoring questions put to it earlier this year by the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, leaving disabled people to face “serious discrimination” in educational, employment and social opportunities.

When artist Damon Davis went to join the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, after police killed Michael Brown in 2014, he found not only anger but also a sense of love for self and community. His documentary “Whose Streets?” tells the story of the protests from the perspective of the activists who showed up to challenge those who use power to spread fear and hate.

Surely not indeed, would friends or associates of Prince Charles do any of this. Surely they would not get pleasure from seeing animals being attacked and torn apart by other animals.

Just as Prince Charles and his family members would not just shoot and kill wild animals for pleasure and trophies.

Surely not.

Pride's Purge

Fox hunters are not the well-dressed, refined people some think they are.

The real fox hunters are basically little more than thugs; trespassing on and destroying people’s property, torturing their own hounds and and clubbing puppies to death, riding roughshod over ancient protected areas and punching pensioners in the face:

Not to mention enjoying watching beautiful animals being torn apart while still alive for ‘pleasure’.

In a latest example of their thuggish barbarity, a man out walking his dogs was attacked by hunters and hounds from the Mendip Farmers Hunt, resulting in horrific injuries to both of his dogs:

But according to the local police, the thuggish attack will not even be investigated.

Could the reluctance from local police to react to this crime be connected in any way to the fact that a leading member of the hunt is Alastair Martin, the Secretary of the Duchy…
