Besides, it was in another Country!

I have written before on one of the largest scandals ever to have surfaced regarding abused children in this Nation of ours. It is the story of deceit, lies, abuse, indifference, buggery, slavery, rape, legalised kidnap and the total neglect of a resource so precious it should have resulted in world-wide prosecutions.

I refer of course of course to the chilling legal shipment, to Australia, Canada, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), ; along with various minor Commonwealth destinations of over 150,000 (That is One Hundred and Fifty Thousand children, our own kith and kin, , under the guise of ‘A Better Life’. They were chosen on a basis of either ‘his mother is not married, therefore she doesn’t count, because she is less than civilized’ or ‘his (or her) family have placed him in care because the parents are ill, so he won’t be missed’; or any number of ill-thought out reasons to disguise the real reason. This was simply, ‘The Commonwealth needs new European stock to revitalise their own, as immigration is slowing down; and we have access to large numbers of children so young they won’t understand; so WHY NOT?’.

Those youngsters were treated as slave labour, ill-fed, sexually and physically abused, lied to, and forgotten for over forty years, and it was only after some, now middle-aged Englishmen and Women tried to find out where they came from, and what had happened to their former families that the truth commenced to trickle out from behind the blank wall of official denial.

But all is now saved, all is forgiven, because the British Prime Minister is APOLOGIZING to those extremely reluctant migrants from forty and fifty years ago! No mention of compensation; no words of comfort, or acceptance that things could have been different, the lies should not have been told, the abuse should not have happened. Just Gordon Brown, a proven serial liar, emoting for the cameras once more! I wonder if his eyes will tear up again? I wonder if his voice will tremor with emotion? I am told he’s very good at that!

I found this document, published by The Eros Foundation, and whilst I can understand the reasons behind its compilation, I found it strangely compelling in the statistics alone.

Count the Ways!!

Over the many years since I first commenced reading of the many problems inherent in the human condition, I have lost count of the ways of evil. I have read of tiny children suffering death through neglect, through torture and through simple hatred of their innocence. I have, as have we all, read of man’s inhumanity to their fellow men, in actions based on religious beliefs, through greed and in retaliatory vengeance. I read¬†Lord Russell’s indictment of the Nazis while still a young man, and believed that there could be few events which could match those days for feral, ferocious efficiency!

But even I blinked twice while reading of the actions of a group of alleged human beings who are on trial for the torture, beating, kidnap, murder and dismemberment of their victim. The decapitated body of 26-year-old Michael Gilbert was found in the Blue Lagoon in Arlesey last May.

The torture and murder was carried out while they were robbing Mr. Gilbert of his BENEFIT MONEY.

Six people have been charged on various counts including the charge of Familial Murder, which term was specially created in order to charge than one member of a household to be charged over a death if evidence showed they could have done something to prevent it.
