Aberdeen City Council: Getting It Wrong again and again and again

As the bodies of GIRFEC victims start piling up across Scotland (and not just those from the home ed community), we thought we’d start at the beginning of the council alphabet and shine a bright searchlight on the various publicly reported failures and breaches on the part of Aberdeen City Council, which seems to just […]

The children’s charities’ refrain: Stand and deliver!

Given the ongoing controversy surrounding the demise of Kids Company, it is surely high time that each and every state sponsored ‘children’s charity’ was subject to far greater scrutiny by the taxpayers who are forced to fund them. At the very least their government cheerleading activities should be covered by the Freedom of Information Act […]

Minister left floundering at the deep end over GIRFEC

Following the sensational own goal at Hampden the other week by Aileen’s Army of GIRFEC apologists, another ministerial event at Govanhill Baths in Glasgow hasn’t gone according to plan, as Alex Neil found himself floundering at the deep end in the face of criticism of the Named Person data stealing scheme by parents and teachers alike.

The […]

Never mind consent, just steal the data

According to the latest snippet of Scottish Government spin, the compulsory named person is a point of contact who parents will never need to approach if they choose not to. Lying by omission is still lying, of course. Parents don’t need to approach anyone for their sensitive personal data to be mined without consent (i.e. stolen), trawled by everyone […]

Parents steal wheels from GIRFEC propaganda wagon

In the wake of Hampdengate (where things didn’t go to plan for the government, despite taxpayer funded bribes of £25 vouchers, free travel and lunches being offered to parents, children and young people to go forth and promote the ‘benefits’ of data theft), the propaganda wagon has lost all its wheels and will hopefully soon […]

Hazel and the lioness

Further to our recent post, Deregister or be damned, in which we highlighted the plight of former home educator Jackie Turner, who is being prosecuted for taking her nine year old daughter, Hazel, out  of school for this three week backpacking trip,  we are pleased to see the mainstream media embracing the story. Support for Jackie’s position has been overwhelming, […]

Hands Up For Home Ed in Wales

Welsh home educators are today gathering for a #HandsUpForHomeEd picnic on the steps of the Senedd (Welsh Assembly Building) to show the solidarity of the home educating community against the draconian Draft Guidelines For Elective Home Education in Wales, which are currently open for consultation.

Picnickers will be  wearing T-shirts decorated with the ‘I’m Home Educated, Not Invisible’ slogan and bringing […]

Advantage O’Neill as GIRFEC Newspeak exposed

We thought we should post an update on the GIRFEC judicial review appeal hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh before judges Lord Carloway, Lord Malcolm and Lord Bracadale. It is to be hoped that three judicial heads are better than one, especially given the good Lords’ recent victory in protecting their own privacy […]

Deregister or be damned

A Herefordshire parent with many years of experience home educating her older children is being prosecuted for taking her nine year old daughter on a backpacking ‘holiday of a lifetime’ during term time. Ironically, had she exercised her parental right to deregister (under which circumstances, in England, the school would have been legally required to remove […]

Getting It Right for the State

The UK Column News, broadcast on 29 May 2015, is a must watch for home educators and others who are concerned about citizen wellbeing (or, more accurately, wellbehaving) outcomes, as dictated by the state and a gang of unelected ‘leaders’.

Home educators will note in particular the plans for compulsory registration contained in Labour’s pre-election policy proposals (08.30), but the point […]
