Child died at mental health hospital while staff were meant to be watching her, inquest told | The Independent

Exclusive: 14-year-old girl died at Taplow Manor Hospital in Maidenhead after she was left unattended


The true state of care in the UK, be it mental health, other health services or social care and, yes, funding, or lack of it is the root cause, but in this instance compounded by perhaps lack administration.

But funding is the root cause, but this government and many before are more concerned about reducing costs than maintaining good quality care.

Health and social care are not the only areas for there are funding shortages in many areas of the UK, but in health and care lack of funding can lead to deaths, which it has in this case and many others. Deaths which were avoidable if sufficient funding was there. Health and social care can’t be maintained on the cheap, but successive UK government have assumed it can, either by ignorance or by deliberate informed actions. Where is the ‘Duty of Care’ well it is not for this government is defunct of care, Duty or not.

It should be a Crime and government Ministers and Prime Ministers held accountable, but they are not and that is a Crime or should be.

Human Rights are not being respected for they are being totally ignored by this government.

But they really believe that if they are OK then that is all that matters, but it is not.

Harry’s allegations are not just about a royal fist fight – but the very real dangers of hereditary power | Gaby Hinsliff | The Guardian

The personal is political when resentment is baked into a monarchy whose instinct is to protect the heir at all costs, says Guardian columnist Gaby Hinsliff


Siblingly rivally will n ot be good in any family, b ut even more so when everything is within the stoplight.

In years gone by this would generally have not been noticed by the public at large for it would have been behind many doors and many when it did surface would have been confined to imprisonment, mainly in the Tower of London or even worse the death of one who was not as powerful as the other. But these days we have the media in many ways and it is so accessible. So, when one wishes to speak out there are many ways to do it and the establishment tends to go into a ‘veil of secrecy’, or it is so assumed, but then there are the leaks from, apparently, unknown sources, but are they?

Now, while the popularity of the UK Monarchy is diminishing, now much more so than previously, there is still a very loyal section of the UK community for whom the Royal Family can do no wrong and anyone who casts otherwise is severely put down.

Now I don’t know if Harry and Meghan are saying as it is or as they believe it is for in many instances we are only hearing one side, except for the, supposed leaks, from supposed royal sources.

Now, while what they say may not be truly true, there is much that could be be, b ut many just dismiss what Harry and Meghan say without any reaL proof what is true and what is not.

Over the years, when archived information is released either intentionaly or not some of what is being said by Harry and Meghan has occurred many times before in one way and another.

In recent years we have had the spares Prince Andrew and before Princess Margaret, both who were not allowed to be with their so believed first loved, could this have led to behaviours that one would not have expected from Royal persons, but we do tend to forget that even with all the wealth and privileges they are when it comes down only human, with the usual human feelings, no matter how they have been brought up to not do.

Love, after all is love and being denied to love can have serious consequences on anyone.

Harry was brought up in a much freer age and Diana was also not that endearing to Royal life and we all kn ow, to a large extent what happened to her and much is still well unknown, for what occurred happening in the area of wealth, power and much secrecy and very much unanswered.

These two young boys have had to contend with, within the trappings of Royal traditions, secrecy, power, privilege and much more so is it not surprising that some problems could have well occurred.

Harry is coming forward with his version, but The Establishment is keeping quiet, which they have the right to do, but is it because what is being said is true, partly true or not true to some degrees. None of us will really know, but some are acting as they really do out of their feelings for the Monarchy, they maybe right and maybe not.

But, like it or not we do have, to much concent, the Right of Free Speech which Harry and Meghan are exercising.  We have no knowledge of their health and certainly thier mental state, but from what I do see, I know that, I for one, would not have wished to be there and feel I am so lucky that I will never be.

CBD Gummies Online Scam Costs Disabled People Millions

Any scam is disgusting and much more needs to be done to safeguard the vulnerable people who are victims of these scams.

The platform on which these scam are on should also be made responsible and compensate the victims. Then these platforms would then be more careful on what they allow on their platforms, the old adage of ‘Buyer be aware’ is not sufficient these days. laws are in urgent need of uopdating.

For it is not just the financial loss which is a factor but also the mental situations which are created and have to be dealt with, so increasing health interrventions.

Online subscription scams, many using bogus celebrity endorsements, are costing victims tens of millions of pounds a year, a BBC Radio 4 File on 4 programme investigation has found.

Some 300,000 people a year are thought to have been tricked into the schemes, many seemingly backed by celebrities such as comedian Russell Brand.

But in reality, the celebrities have never even heard of the products.

Many of the scams lure victims in with fake adverts on Facebook.

File on 4 found more than 800 on the social-networking site.

Facebook says it has now taken down most of the pages – adding that using public figures to scam people out of money is against its policy.

For the Queen to back the BBC over her grandson is not just awkward, it marks a turning point

It is jaw-dropping that she should align with the same BBC that William condemned last month



Who is right and who is wrong, perhaps both are, for this is all down to opinions, Mental Health and how people are preceived to be.

In the Royal Family there are many years of tradition, which the Queen appears to wish to preserve, but it will not always be so, for there is more modern thinking coming through. So will Charles and then William and any others following keep to these traditions, well we will have to wait and see.

Then there is public opinion and this can be fickle, so support for ‘The family’ can never be guaranteed, just look at the death of Diana.

There is also the assumed antics of Charles during his marriage to Diana, the life and times of Princess Margaret, and then Prince Andrew, plus others. It would appear that the male lineage

We have to believe that both Harry and Meghan could well have mental health issues and these could cloud judgement.

Every family have their problems, but not many are conducted in full view or as full a view as we are allowed to see.

With Meghan there was a great opportunity for ‘The Family’ to come into the 21st Centuary, but is The Family really wishing to do so, for to do so, some degree of privilege and privacy is bound to be affected. They could have shown how diverse they are, because currently they appear to be the model of ‘White Supremacy’, whether they wish to or not.

We have seen in the past how after a passage of time information comes to light which discredits what was said at the time. This happens in many families so will certainly happen in the royal family, for nothing is ever as it seems, and The Family have always been scant with their information.

The Family do believe they are superior to others, that they have a God given right to be where they are, when in fact, it is being in the right place at the right time or even not always right.

But in affect they are just Human beings, just as the rest of us, but have much more money and certainly much more privileges than most of us.

Both sides need to scale back, for if they do not I fear for the consequences.

Sport loves athletes with mental health issues – if they just shut up and play | Marina Hyde | The Guardian

The grand slams say Naomi Osaka’s decisions about press are ‘injurious’ to tennis. Perhaps they should look closer to home, says Guardian columnist Marina Hyde




This all shows that the powers that be in sport, especially in Tennis do not care about people in sport, but are only there for their own interests and those of the media.

If these persons in power do not change then there could well be no participants in sport for tournaments to take place and they will only have themselves to blame.

Money and power are the root of all evil and will spoil the enjoyment of all concerned, the sport participants and the spectators of sports.

This will be the next area of abuse to be inspected, for we have already seen how participants have been treated by some trainers and managers in gymnastics

Money has taken over most sports and lead to great abuses of power or assumed power, the proposed Super league of top football clubs in Europe is another prime example

Second Wheelchair Basketballer Considers Leg Amputation After Rule Change : Same Difference

This is disgraceful and shows the IPC are out of touch with disability, which makes them unsuitable to govern any form of disability sport.

It implies that a disability has to be seen to qualify as a disability, which is completely wrong and discounts many forms of unseen disability, including mental health.

Again some disabled people are being discriminated against and by a, so called, disability organisation.

The IPC needs to change or leave the ‘field of play’.

Same Difference

It seems this is a big story that should be shared and covered widely. This is the second such story we’ve covered in less than four weeks. We note that Oscar Knight is awaiting the outcome of the first case, George Bates.

A wheelchair basketball player deemed ineligible to play after a rule change says he is considering having his legs amputated.

GB Academy player Oscar Knight, 17, from Plymouth, suffers from complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

He said new participation measures did not recognise his “poorly understood” condition and have made him “not the right kind of disabled” to compete.

The International Paralympics Committee (IPC) has been approached for comment.

In January, the committee told wheelchair basketball’s governing body, the IWBF, it needed to change its classification regulations in order to comply with the new code.

Under the IPC’s criteria, pain or hypermobility of joints are not eligible impairments…
