Thank you, Margot, for your posting. Again, my apologies for the delay. A lot has been happening in the UK over the past few weeks that has serious implications concerning the future for people with learning disabilities/autism. It has not been good news, and I have spent a lot of time digging out more information that I hope will enable me to respond effectively to the current lack of clear leadership. UK policy has been built on an abundance of ‘visions`, but a shortage of ‘solutions’.
My apologies too, to Cortney, with many thanks for your kind comments. I have only been seriously ‘blogging’ for about five years, but have been writing protest letters and emails to the media, academic individuals, and key organisations, for over 30 years. That has given me a fair amount of experience

TRANSFORMING CARE - IS IT WORKING/
Further to yesterday’s posting. This was purposely short and to the point, as it is critical that this basic point must be circulated and SHARED as widely as possible whilst the audible version on Radio 4 is still accessible - otherwise it will fade away as an unbelievable ‘fake’ story’.
For the past 30 years I have maintained that, unless the flaws in policy direction were openly debated in the public domain, the eventual outcome would lead to re-institutionalisation.
There can be little doubt that the ‘care in the community’ clock has turned back half a century and is still regressing as the continuing resurfacing of the Winterbourne View scandal so often illustrates. The reality is that the Winterbourne View story will never die until the true version of how it came about, despite being predictable and avoidable, is brought into public scrutiny and debate.
People with learning disabilities, autism, and their carers have been betrayed by the very individuals and organisations that should have been protecting their rights and promoting their welfare. They have failed abysmally as the Radio 4 article confirms, but this programme also offers a last unmissable opportunity to reopen the objective and vitally needed debate in the public domain. Lucy Adams has created ‘a ripple’, but it is up to carers to create ‘a tidal wave of positive reaction to injustice’.
I have been in touch directly with Lucy Adams and have a sympathetic Press Agent. I have sought a hard copy of the broadcast to keep a record of its content, but await a positive response.
At the moment there is little else I can do but appeal to all carers to SHARE the content of yesterday’s posting and appeal to all other groups to also SHARE.
Feel free to use this posting if inclined, but for those who would prefer not to, or missed it, I append yesterday’s posting to copy or cut and paste.
Carers might also help direct, and reinforce this message, by sending their own views and congratulations to BBC Live on 4.
This could be your last chance to have a say in the destiny of your goodselves and your families - you deserve it - don't miss it.
“ Transforming Care - Is It Working?
A brilliant article by Lucy Adam on Live on 4. BBC Radio 4 2nd Oct. Try getting the audio version by logging on to Lucy Adams BBC Journalist Muck Rack.
This is an appalling and harrowing story about a 17 year old girl who is in St Andrews hospital and has been there for 21 months - mostly in isolation. because no alternative community has been allocated to her. It is unbelievable. She is fed through a small hatch in a metal door. Her father has to kneel down on the floor to talk to her through this hatch. I am trying to follow it through as I am about to publish a new monograph that deals with the betrayal of people with learning disabilities over the past half a century from a practitioner’s point of view. More about that later”

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
