Tape recording paying off


Prepare to be very shocked. And then very angry.

At the Transparency Project Conference on Monday, a question was asked about whether parents should be allowed to tape record discussions and conversations. Both Lucy Reed (www.pinktape.co.uk) and myself gave the opinion that where a parent wants to do this, they should be able to.  Social work can involve an imbalance of power with a parent, and where a parent feels that they want their own record of what was said, or to be able to go back to it later to hear it again, they should be able to.  That’s my own opinion, I don’t speak (as always in this blog) for anyone other than myself.

Windrush Human rights Motion Labour party in BGB

I raised the British human rights scandal of the Deportation of British Caribbean UK citizens in a Motion I wrote for my local BGB Labour party constituency .

It has been voted for in the Labour party women’s forum in Bethnal Green and Bow.

Serious human rights violations have occurred as a result of the UK Conservative government’s actions.

Psychological distress has been caused .

Many are destitute .

I strongly dislike people who take pleasure in others suffering.

So I try to contribute and play my part in social justice and civil rights .

The next hurdle is the policy body of the constituency Labour party which is the GC.
