The woman, who for legal reasons can be identified only by her first name, Rachel, has been told by a family court that her daughter will be placed with adoptive parents within the next three months, and she will then be barred from further contact.As in forever apparently. So, this must be a stratospherically dense mother for such extreme action to be necessary, right?
The adoption is going ahead despite the declaration by a psychiatrist that Rachel, 24, has no learning difficulties and “good literacy and numeracy and [that] her general intellectual abilities appear to be within the normal range”.What? Sounds more or less average to me. So is the child super special needs or something? Apparently not (my bold).
Her daughter, K, was born prematurely and officials felt Rachel lacked the intelligence to cope with her complex medical needs Baby K was released from hospital into care and is currently with a foster family. Her health has now improved to the point where she needs little or no day-to-day medical care.Okay, so the mother might not be rocket scientist material, though that's far from clear really, but is certainly not an outstanding example of the common or garden British mouth breather according to the trick cyclist who assessed her, and the little girl is over the need for day to day medical care. So what the hell are they playing at? Is this like a modern day Germanisation program of taking children away on any convenient pretext so they can be re-homed and raised according to the state's values? Or is it more like a well intentioned but appallingly patronizing and misguided attempt on the part of the authorities to act in the best interests of the child (also with some historical precedence)? I'm inclined to believe the latter since it smacks more of a well intentioned incompetence than a more sinister calculated conspiracy, and it kind of fits in with the fuck-off-we're-right-you're-all-wrong attitude the wankers are showing.
Her attempts to fight Nottingham city council’s adoption of her daughter have been hampered because her case was taken over by the official solicitor, the government-funded lawyer who acts for those unable to represent themselves. He was brought in to represent Rachel’s interests because she was judged to be intellectually incapable of instructing her own solicitor. He declined to contest the council’s adoption application, despite her wish to do so.Yep, seems like a lot of arse covering going on. Maybe there's more detail to emerge on this story, but right now it looks like they decided in their all knowing and infallible wisdom that they were dealing with someone who's a bit of a thickie, who not only couldn't be trusted with a child but was too dopey even to deal with a solicitor herself, and maybe something bad might happen to the kid because of it. Obviously the fact that so far fuck all has happened is neither here nor there - in modern Britain there are plenty of victimless "crimes" that are illegal purely because of what might possibly happen, and this preemptive removal of a young child from her mother fits in just fine with that kind of thinking. Of course, now it turns out that the woman whose child they legally kidnapped is of normal intelligence after all they dig in rather than admit they fucked up, the cunts.
After the psychiatrist’s assessment of Rachel, the court has now acknowledged that she does have the mental capacity to keep up with the legal aspects of her situation. It has nevertheless refused her attempts to halt the adoption process.
Not being a parent I can't imagine what the poor woman is going through but it's a warning to everybody about the creeping authoritarianism that's taking over what would otherwise be a pretty decent country. When's it going to fucking stop? In the meantime I hope Rachel wins her daughter back and I hope she sues the fuckbag bastards responsible for enough to get them both a comfortable distance away from the putrid Orwellian pit the UK is becoming, and most of all I hope the said fuckbag bastards are then slowly and painfully consumed by genital warts.
