Yesterday I accompanied Stormin Norman McGuigan of MINDS AT WAR organisation, champion of veterans suffering PTSD that have been let down by our government and ministry of defence, to visit Paratroop veteran Gus Hales a PTSD patient who is on hunger strike and camping outside charity Combat Stress’s Audley Court treatment centre in Newport Shropshire. Norman was intending to talk down Gus who has vowed to hunger strike until Remembrance Sunday on November 11th if he survives that long in this bitterly cold weather on the Welsh borders. Gus is risking his life in order to raise awareness of the treatment of veterans suffering PTSD, and in particular the failings of veterans charity Combat Stress, who are annual recipients of tens of millions of pounds of government and private funding. There have long been question marks over the efficacy of how Combat Stress is being operated despite the good work they do still provide in helping some veterans.

A female prisoner who repeatedly started fires in her cells blamed one of them on a non-existent woman, a court heard.
Melanie Shaw, who has been deemed unfit to stand trial, allegedly started four fires in her cells over four months.
The court heard that when the 48-year-old emerged from her single-occupancy cell in the segregation unit of HMP New Hall, she blamed the latest fire on a woman called Lorraine. Continue reading Prisoner Melanie Shaw ‘started four fires in her cells over four months’, court hears
MADRID – Spain’s bishops have set up a commission on child sex abuse in the Catholic Church, in preparation for meeting next year called by Pope Francis to cope with a spreading sexual abuse crisis.
Facing scandals in the United States, Chile, Australia and Germany, among others, Francis has summoned the heads of the national Catholic bishops’ conference to a meeting in the Vatican in February.
The Spanish group, made up of church lawyers, will start work this week to prepare material for the meeting, the national bishops’ conference said in a statement on Tuesday.
Next on the group’s agenda will be updating the protocol on how cases of child sexual abuse are treated and writing new rules to replace the current code, which was established in 2010. Continue reading Spanish bishops create commission to combat child sex abuse
The DFLA supports towns and groups across the UK that are suffering from or fighting against the disease of gang grooming. This disgusting cultural phenomena has been systematically covered up for decades by mainly Labour councils and their police stooges in the hope of retaining their Muslim block vote and remain politically correct, showing complete cowardliness with their fear that they may be deemed to be racist for tackling a problem where children are groomed, raped, trafficked, tortured and even killed by gangs that are made up of predominately Pakistani/Bangladeshi Muslim men.

Fighting For Justice
Fighting For Justice·Wednesday, June 27, 2018
In January this year , our boys Josh, Harry and George were mowed down and murdered on their way to a friends 16th birthday party. Ever since that day, we have had to fight the corrupt establishment, who have concealed the truth away from all of you. If you have read and listened to the mainstream media, and you didn’t know about Fighting For Justice, then you would of probably believed their lies about what took place that night. We don’t want our children, to become your children. So this is our story.. Continue reading Justice For Our Boys
Ian’s astonishing feat caps epic week in pub bombings campaign.
Marathon walker cheats death to complete 106 miles in two days for Justice4the21
By Julie Hambleton Justice 4 The 21 campaigner and columnist for Birmingham Live.
I CAN only begin this week’s column by saluting one of the most extraordinary acts of support and bravery the Justice4the21 famiies have ever seen.
Ian Williams, one of our supporters from Preston, pushed himself through the pain barrier to walk 106 miles from there to Birmingham in just a fraction over two days.
It is hard for us to find the words to show our appreciation for this astonishing feat.
So let me pass on what Ian said after arriving in Birmingham.
“It took me 52 hours in total to complete it just over the two days, which included getting lost five times, going through a farmers field on a public footpath and nearly getting knocked down by a lorry in the early hours of last Friday morning on an unlit country road.
“Apart from a ten minute break, I did the first leg to Newcastle under Lyme in 29 hours, and I was in agony to say the least.
“I said at St Philips when I finished that it wasn’t about me or the walk, but about the 21 people that are no longer with us.
“I wanted to do something that would highlight the Justice4the21 campaign and if I managed to change somebody’s opinion or even make someone aware of what’s going on, well then I will be happy.”
What an absolute hero this kind, unassuming man is.
He is calling himself ‘an adopted Brummie for life.’
He will certainly always be a particularly precious member of the Justice4the21 ‘family’ of supporters.
He hopes to raise £1,000 for the campaign.
