Current laws that aim to ensure disabled people are not deprived of their liberty unlawfully are “in crisis” and need to be replaced urgently, according to the government’s advisers on law reform. The current system has led to tens of thousands of people with dementia and learning difficulties being detained in hospitals and care homes without the appropriate independent checks that their rights have not been breached, according to the Law Commission. This week, following a public consultation, the commission published its final report on Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty, which includes proposals for new legislation on how the law should ensure that people without the capacity to give their consent to their care arrangements are the least restrictive they can be and are also in that person’s best interests. The current system, the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS), has been described as an “administrative and bureaucratic nightmare”, and the report says it is “overly

Blair is a liar and a traitor and the elites should stop protecting him.
All Blair thinks about is himself and he has made £millions through his perverted politics. He needs to be made accountable for his actions as a warning to others.
This insane moron needs to be stopped so please sign the Petition.
”The think tank MigrationWatch released its own report in August 2003 – nine months before these countries formally joined the EU – warning that immigration from former Soviet bloc countries could be four times higher than the Home Office report’s estimate.
The Daily Express, in a leader article, agreed and warned that “the Government’s assurances on immigration inspire little confidence”.”

“Blair’s interview was a typical display of his tenuous relationship with the truth.” That’s an over-polite way of telling us that he is a pathological liar. Sorry, already known.
The sentiment of “draining the swamp” is highly appealing after years of post-blairian dystopia UK. This man needs swift justice to stop others doing the same in the future. Abhorrent globalist traitor.

Two people involved in the brutal murder of a disabled man who was imprisoned and tortured to death have had their sentences increased by the court of appeal. Julie Mills and Nicole Lawrence were originally sentenced at Newcastle Crown Court last year after being convicted of involvement in the death of Lee Irving. He had been repeatedly kicked, punched and stamped on by James Wheatley, in attacks that took place over nine days, leaving him with multiple broken bones and other injuries. After he died, his body was taken on a pushchair through a housing estate and dumped on a patch of grass near the A1 in Kenton Bar, Newcastle. The court of appeal decided this week that the prison sentences of eight years and four years handed to Mills and Lawrence were too low, and resentenced Mills, Wheatley’s mother, to 10 years in prison, and Lawrence, his girlfriend, to seven years. Wheatley did not have his life sentence for murder – of which he will serve at least 23 years – challenged, while the
