Hope all is well whereever you are!
I would have sent some e-cards but trying to save money to buy a mattress and base along with bedding but I am trying to get ahead with the rent first. The good thing is I am inside and not out in the snow and cold. I have one thin blanket and as the flat is a bit cold I see in my chair in the bath room as it is the warmest place until I get a heater on Friday. I found it second hand for $5 on the internet that someone is selling. With any luck that will help. Overall I am doing better. I am walking be it only 600 yards but better than nothing. I don’t use the chair in the flat except to sleep on/in.
I am waiting for the bank to sort things out and send out a new card so I can access my money. They did said I would take a few weeks but I know that it will take a bit longer due to the holidays. Nevertheless onwards and upwards is the only thing to be done. Continue reading
Do I need to curse my logical mind?
Is Mathematical Woman too precise for Legal Man?
Well, I suppose I shouldn’t publish my thinking here, but make a ‘renewed submission’…
At least we’re learning how professionals keep themselves – and each other – busy all – for taxpayers’ money.
Anyway, this is ‘the news’ or the ‘outcome’ – in black on white – of the hearing of 05 December 2013.
This morning, in Court 18 of the Royal Courts of Justice, I delivered the message that Melissa had sent via Skype – on paper. I asked the usher whether there is a connection so that she could talk to the Judge on Skype. Apparently that is possible only in one court.
I mentioned this to HHJ Anthony Elleray QC as it was not clear to him ‘on paper’ whether
- we have the ‘right and ability’ to represent the Claimant
- even though we had submitted and paid for two Notices of Renewal and an Application for Revocation
- we are apparently not on the court record – because CLP Solicitors had not removed themselves properly [how are we supposed to know that their email was NOT sufficient?]
- even though the Claimant Melissa has given us the full legal authority, does she really want us to represent her in these proceedings – after CLP Solicitors had initiated the Judicial Review? Continue reading
I find it very hard to make sense of a world that has clearly gone off its rails but claims to operate “in the best interests” of children in general and Melissa’s then 4-year old child who last saw his mum 2 years ago in Spain.
- We got a hearing scheduled for 05 December – to address the ‘substance of the case’, to exercise her rights of appeal and generally have a ‘fair trial’ a la Human Rights Article 6.
- Melissa gets deported – despite our efforts – and is still homeless.
- The Treasury Solicitor makes an application to get this matter disposed of.
- The Admin Court lists ‘Laird’ as one of 5 ‘disposals’:
Where is our application?
Well, I may not have a robe and a wig, but I do have a brain. I shall make sure it’s going to be ‘in gear’ tomorrow! And I have McKenzie Friends who advise me. One of them suggested to contact the Delivery Director and ask for explanations.
The #unethical #wombscandal tells the whole Nation that something is very wrong, at least in Essex Council! Continue reading
This 8-page gagging order was the result of my publishing Five mothers on hunger strike protesting against violation of Article 8: the right to family life, when Melissa was in prison.
The printout of my web publication is part of the gag, but I was never served a gag.
Except it says in para 2 on page 2:
This order binds all persons and all companies (whether acting by their directors, employees or agents or in any other way) who know that the order has been made.
Remember what’s unique in the UK.
Melissa’s hearing is scheduled for Thursday 5 December. On Wednesday after 1pm we should be able to find in which Court room from this link.
I am an American woman who was dumped at Dulles in a wheelchair with no money, place to live/sleep and knowing no one after being deported back to the US after 19 years and after having my child stolen by the UK government. I held for over 18 month in a prison where I was tortured and abused by prison staff. Under the UK law I should have redress through the courts there and to date that has not happened. My son who at the time of abduction was 4 years of age where he seen me, his mother, beaten in handcuffs by Spanish police while he screamed for me. This was the last vision my son had of me! Currently we, my son and I, have no idea where either one of us are. With numerous attempts made to get contact with my now 6 year old child I am repeatedly refused. I have in possession a court order which gives me the right to have contact but the social worker refuses to allow this. Continue reading
