Gareth, of Rushden, Northamptonshire, was 17 when he was first attacked by thieves, who made off with his moped. His family believe he was targeted because he has mild learning difficulties. Just as Gareth was due to give evidence against the suspects being prosecuted for the robbery, he was forced off his moped a second time and chased into a nearby pub. Gareth was deeply affected by the incident but felt confident that the evidence for the second prosecution would be strong – customers and staff in the pub had helped him and the incident was captured on CCTV. But, instead, Northamptonshire police responded in a manner they now acknowledge was deeply inadequate. They failed to investigate and, when Gareth and his family made a complaint, still no steps were taken to arrest his attackers. Gareth was ignored, he says, because of his learning difficulties. "I was not believed because I had learning difficulties and as a result the people who attacked me have still not been brought to justice." Only after he brought a legal claim under the Human Rights Act and disability discrimination law was his case finally taken seriously. When agreeing to settle the claim out of court, the chief constable accepted "serious failures" and an "unacceptable" level of service. "For these mistakes I, and the organisation, are very sorry," he wrote. He also agreed to pay £70,000 in damages and legal costs. But, says the lawyer who represented Gareth, had the police taken a human rights focused approach to the way they dealt with Gareth in the first instance, expensive and drawn-out legal proceedings would not have been necessary. "It should not have required litigation for the police to honour its duties to people with disabilities in Northamptonshire," says Tony Murphy, of Bhatt Murphy solicitors. "Sadly I am dealing with these kinds of cases nationwide."

A novel claim under the Disability Discrimination Act against Northamptonshire Police in relation to its failure to protect of a victim of crime with autism, which circumvented the traditional barriers to making the police accountable for neglect . This claim was also successfully mediated for substantial damages, an apology and an agreement that lessons would be learned by the police with Lord Henry Brooke acting as mediator. http://www.bhattmurphy.co.uk/bhatt-murphy-108.html
Ravi Gurumurthy and Jonathan Brearley, who were advisers at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), and architects of key proposed energy reforms, each left though the energy bill is still making going through parliament.
The departure of three key officials in such a crucial area of policy will raise questions about the government's control of its energy policies, which are already controversial.
The former Tory minister Tim Yeo is preparing for a rebellion against the government on the inclusion of a target in the bill to decarbonise the electricity sector by 2030, which he and many others back but which the government has rejected.
The recent spate of resignations also follows the departure last year of the permanent secretary to DECC, Moira Wallace, and a row over her successor.
David Kennedy, chief executive of the Committee on Climate Change, had been proposed for the post and is understood to have had the backing of Ed Davey, the Lib Dem energy and climate secretary, but his appointment was vetoed by Downing Street.
Another No 10 adviser credited with championing green issues, Rohan Silva, also recently left.
There is a perception among green campaigners and some energy companies that the government is not giving clear signals on energy and climate change policy.
Andrew Warren, chief executive of the Association for the Conservation of Energy, said: "Everybody involved with energy efficiency will wish [Moxham] a long and happy retirement."
He called for a swift replacement for the Downing Street team. "We need someone in No 10 to ensure that [the] PM's unequivocal commitment to make us the most energy efficient nation is realised."
Give me a student undertaking a three year social work degree, consisting of the most unadulterated Marxist rubbish, and I will give you a social worker who puts their warped ideology ahead of the interests of those they are paid to serve.
There are 22,050 children's social workers in England. Nobody can join them without a social work degree. Somebody who might have the most impressive practical experience is prohibited from joining unless they have first subjected themselves to the degrading thought control. Endless stuff about how they need to consider the individual cases they are dealing with in the "context" of how the capitalist system must be overthrown.
Ngozi Angeline Godwell's insight:
Very sensibly, free schools (and soon academies) are allowed to employ teachers without a formal teaching qualification from a Teacher Training College. If, for example, someone has been a fantastic teacher at an independent school for years but doesn't have Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) it's absurd to prohibit them from state schools. Similarly if a couple who have been exemplary foster carers for seven years decided they wanted to become social workers is that really less of a qualification than enduring years of indoctrination in Marxist theories?
To paraphrase Ronald Reagan it's not that those who have taken the social work degree are ignorant, "it's just that they know so much that isn't so." I repeat that many social workers are decent practical people who manage to some extent to forget the theories and get on with the job. Such "sell outs" are a grave disappointment to their old professors. Other social workers keep the faith rigidly maintaining all the dogmas inculcated in them without being distracted by reality.
Social workers should not have social work degree courses inflicted upon them.
