Many thanks for your posting, Wiley. I am very sorry that I did not receive the earlier message as it would have been most welcome. Looking back on the history at the base of my Bulletin, I have been fortunate to receive comments from the USA, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Austria, Iceland, Brussels, Denmark, Italy, Poland, but very little interest from the UK!
With regard to my own blogs these are on behalf of people with learning disabilities and their carers who I feel are getting a raw deal. This has been either covered up, or airbrushed out of social history. It is very complex issue so I try to share the true story in small understandable pieces with the hope that justice for these people will be restored.For your own blogs it might help to share them on WordPress. My last big blog on this site was shared in full from the blog of a WordPress subscriber. It is not too expensive, about £30 per year, I seem to recall, for which you get the opportunity to circulate dozens of blogs, if you wish, Best wishes. Charles H 27th April 2018

Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? I'd definitely appreciate it.

A heartfelt posting is going around at the moment that deserves much wider circulation. Based on a series of WordPress postings by FINOLAMOSS it is a tragic commentary on the perils of presuming that ‘inclusion’ provides the only acceptable solution to all who seek lifestyle security and fulfilment.
Thomas Rawnsley dead three years. Still no answers

Sunday was the third adversary of Thomas’s death.
He was a fit 20 year old, born with Downs Syndrome , later labelled autistic..
Thomas’s abuse and death is a testament  of our society, morality and humanity.
His mother was not allowed to stay with him during his last night on earth. Her access had been prescribed since he was 17.
She was not even allowed to be alone with him when they switched off his life support machine. No private rooms were available.
The only ‘kindness’ shown was an attempt to obtain his body parts.
Working full time, Paula was to bitterly regret her cry for help with a teenage Thomas.
Unknown to her, a yellow star was already next to Thomas’s name – Downs and autistic.
His fate was sealed.
Social workers came in, assessed, and were over critical of his behaviour – he had pulled down a curtain .
CAMHS got involved and he was medicated with halopidol and respiridol, an overdose made him fit.
Fluoxetine was added making him fly into hypnotic rages from which he recovered with terrible remorse., unaware of his actions.
As with all autistic and learning disabled, Thomas’s only support was his ‘ independence’ from his family.
So at 17, he was removed from his Mum, Dad and sisters to his own 24/7, 24 hour carer attended bungalow owned by Homeleigh Ltd, now bought by Cambian, complex .
But his ‘independence’ did not even afford him freedom from abuse.
For 6 months, a 4ft 10 inch Thomas was kicked by a large 54 year old experienced worker, into his bedroom , his fingers bent back with the words ‘lets see how many I can break this time ‘.
This was two years after Winterbourne View aired.
The Recorder said, ‘We have to respect those who care for our young disadvantaged’ .
Thomas was then removed from Homeleigh to an Adult Treatment Unit for more medication, as workers said he distrusted them.
Paula gave her job up to care for Thomas but couldn’t get him back.
As Thomas was worth too much – over £6,000 a week to ‘independent’/’community living’ as under 25, paid by LA. NHS and D of E.
And £9,000 a week to a mental hospital.
Thomas was the first inhabitant in his new ‘home’ Kingdom House in Sheffield, opened a month earlier, it had not yet been inspected by CQC, and was still half empty when he died .
My own daughter was to be taken there, the very day Thomas died, after stabilisation in a holding bay.
A care worker remarked to me, ‘They are rounding them up and making pin cushions out of them.’ 
But Thomas would not be beaten into submission, his spirit was indomitable, and he died.
The Coroner postponed his inquest in July 2016, to allow an investigation by NHS England .
This investigation would determine the remit and evidence of any subsequent inquest.
Already Paula had had to crowd fund to pay for a lawyer and toxicology reports.
NHS England commissioned Thomas’s Cambian ‘Care’ via Sheffield Clinical Care Commissioning Group from Sheffield Health and Social Care Foundation Trust, a private company since 2015.
So NHS England would be liable if it found Cambian caused , or contributed to Thomas death.
Although the tax payer Paula would pay the bill.
Below is a reminder of Thomas’s fate in pictures taken by Paula.
Think of the many not photographed , as deaths under MCA DOLs and MHA soar.
With just 1% even internally investigated and even less  inquests will be held when Medical Examiners are appointed in April.
With no juries or legal aid available at inquests for those, like Thomas ,dying under a Mental Capacity Act Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards .
Paula’s words posted before Christmas,
‘This time of year isn’t just hard because my son isn’t here to spend it with(although that’s hard enough on its own). Its the memories of a child’s suffering(my child)of him crying for me and begging for help, its memories of him telling me people are hurting him, of people dismissing us when we were screaming out!! ‘

Follow up message to Caroline Dinenage, Minister for Adult Social Care and Disabilities.

Further to my email of the 19th February and my proposal that the terms of the Oxfam judicial review should be extended, I feel obliged to submit further justification.
There can be little doubt that the indiscriminate dismantling of vital support services for people with learning disabilities has left current and future care in the community policies in total disarray. Much trauma and distress for the families affected could have been avoided if significant lessons that should have been learnt from history had been taken on board.
Regrettably, therein lies another major problem that deserves closer scrutiny, the historical evidence relating to the most critical era in the history of support services for people with learning disabilities has by default or intent been omitted or blatantly covered up.
One has only to look at the ‘Timeline of learning disability history’ published by the Open University, with the approval of numerous other UK Universities, to recognise that there are glaring gaps in the period when sound evolutionary policies were being transmuted into ‘politically correct’ dogmas that have since proved to be disastrous.
This has been the work of a relatively small group of ‘would be pioneers’ who inherited a legacy from the real pioneers who had successfully set in progress the foundation for rational and achievable care in the community policy. A legacy that has since been decimated and thrown away.
Incredibly, the small group allowed themselves to be brainwashed by a few individuals who fulfilled their own limited agendas. But where were the mass of other intellectuals and academics who permitted this to happen at immense cost to the victims?
An extended judicial enquiry is surely warranted to explore thirty years of wasted financial and human resources, and more seriously, the human suffering that has arisen because of irresponsible responses to misinformation?
