Social Care has been the forgotten health facility, well certainly by this Government and many previous Governments, for far too many years. So, Social Care has been existing on budgets which are …
We all have reasons for reaching out and some of mine are mentioned below
As I am very concerned about Social Care could I also introduce you to my latest Petition, ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care’.
With the Government, Social Care is the forgotten service and Yes, the Government as plenty to deal with currently, but more should have been done for Social Care well before the COVID 19 situation.
This section of care has been devoid of enough money for far too long and austerity measures only compounded this.
The starting salary for all care workers should be the Real Living Wage and not, as currently the National Living Wage or for some under 25 years The Minimum Wage.
The rate of pay is abysmal when compared to the responsibilities they undertake.
Therefore, I created the Petition ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care’,
It is not just the rate of pay, but many others including
BLOG – Police Scotland Breach My Human Rights
Yesterday, Thursday 6th February, I was awoken by a loud bang on my door. Dazed, I opened the door to two plain clothes officers from Police Scotland, who then proceeded to push their way into my home. They were there to execute a search warrant to seize all my “electronic devices”. The reason: People have made anonymous and malicious reports to Crimestoppers about me, and they can’t find who so are now investigating me. However, their search was far from normal & now my solicitor has lodged a complaint.

Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party secured a huge majority as the British public headed to the polls yesterday.
Yes, people with Learning Disabilities like to work, but just because some may not understand money is no reason to pay them under the National Living Wage, which is too low itself.
A fair wage for a job of work is an entitlement that all in the UK should receive, irrespective of age, sex, health condition, etc.
Until this is respected all over the UK you will get unscrupulous employers offering people who are desperate or not understanding monetry aspects a wage far less than should be paid.
If employers should need an encouragement to employ persons with disabilities, which they should not, then pay the employers extra to do so and this could then be used to ensure the places of employment are fit for purpose, with regards to working conditions, toilets, work stations, required training and terms and conditions.
While it should not be required to state, but I find it is, the employment offered should be a real job and not just a job to do what others are unwilling to do and they should not be bullied.
There may be others to mention, but really people with disabilities should not be disrespected by employers and also their prospective work colleagues, this should be obvious, but, in practice, it is not, for many persons with learning disabilities feel put upon, bullied, made to feel not wanted. Whereas they really want to work and not content to stay jobless where a few of the unemployed do, just content to receive the benefit for not working.
The benefits that people with learning disabilities do receive are essential to their daily living and are not scroungers as they are stated to be by the Government, certain parts of the media and other persons who are so ignorant they really need re-educating.
Sally Ann Hart, the Conservative candidate for Hastings and Rye, caused uproar at an election hustings this week when she defended an article saying people with learning disabilities should be able to work for less than the minimum wage.
“It’s to do with the happiness they have about working,” Hart said to jeers and outrage, proposing a “therapeutic exemption” to the minimum wage to encourage bosses “employing people with learning disabilities”.
But VICE can reveal that she is not the only Conservative to make questionable comments about…
