CHILD SEX ABUSE – 02/09/14 – Glenda Jackson (Hampstead and Kilburn) (Lab) – Theresa May (Home Secretary)

14 09 12 Glenda Jackson MPDear Ms Jackson MP

Once again, you were terrifically efficient and effective in your communications – both in the House and with the Minister.

However, I’m afraid I must enlighten the Minister for Crime Prevention a little, based on the many unfortunate stories I have heard personally and researched otherwise. I wonder whether he should familiarise himself with victims of crimes, if he is charged with preventing them?

 

14 09 10 Norman Baker p1Remember that I am a system analyst by training: a computer scientist who uses facts and logic rather than emotions and arguments to paint pictures of processes and structures.

Remember that I presented the Petition to Abolish Adoptions without Parental Consent in six minutes of passion to the EU Committee in Brussels.

In that vein, I have also watched the evidence of the witnesses regarding the Rotherham abuse before the Home Affairs Committee. 

And I responded to the Ministry of Justice’s 14 09 10 Norman Baker p2press officer regarding the Government’s ‘commitment to victims’.

I have met a mother in HMP Holloway whose social worker for her child was the same as for her mother. The statistics for children in care are horrendous. Ian Josephs, the former councillor from Kent with a law degree from Oxford who publishes Forced Adoption as book and website, has been advising parents for over 50 years!

The sad thing is that, ultimately, it’s about power and control – whether regarding sex or money, Westminster or The City.

We just have to keep doing our best. Each in our own way. Maybe we can even make a difference on behalf of victims. To compensate victims for white collar crimes in general and sexual abuse in particular should be top priority.

Pity that you will stand down at the next election!

With many thanks for your support,

    Sad we are to lose a member of parliament who has experienced life; how to earn her own living, and all before she became one of the best and most honourable representatives at Westminster.
