Fitzsimons: Councillors ‘naive’ in believing senior officials — Inside Croydon

Political editor WALTER CRONXITE on how some at the Town Hall are beginning to face up to uncomfortable truths Croydon’s councillors are becoming increasing angry about the way they have been misled over the handling of the children’s services crisis at the council. Some of the council’s more measured figures have so far avoided accusing […]

Eyes On #Gwynedd – Shout Out.

The stage 2 complaint first raised against Cyngor Gwynedd Council, in May, is nearly complete and to be published by October, 2017.

The Ombudsman for Wales has also started their separate investigation into Gwynedd Children and Family Support (!) team for issues arising from 2010.

I have encountered some truly unprofessional and appalling behaviour – from support services through social worker(s) to managers and even a head of department not to mention the misnamed customer care team.

And I wonder…this must have happened to other people in Gwynedd ?

For the next period of time many eyes will be on the Gwynedd Social Services Children and Family Support (!) department but the remit for scrutiny is only for this families case.

So I ask if you feel that you have been let down by Gwynedd council social services in the past, come forward and tell your story now.

To those good service workers in the department and elsewhere in the council – who know of poor management, unprofessional behaviour , bullying, bad practice etc – now is the time to speak out and help change Gwynedd’s failing council.

Published September 14, 2017

Benedikt Sveinsson, the father of Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson, provided a recommendation letter of “restored honour” for Hjalti Sigurjón Hauksson, a man convicted of having raped his stepdaughter almost daily for 12 years. This information was kept hidden from the general public, despite repeated requests from the media, until a parliamentary committee ruled that the Ministry of Justice was legally obliged to disclose this information. The Prime Minister was aware of his father’s actions since at least last July, but said nothing.

Stundin reports that Hjalti was convicted of rape in 2004, but last August was granted “restored honour”, a legal procedure which effectively clears the criminal record of someone who has served a sentence for a serious crime and seeks to gain a position that a…

The Sexual Abuse of Elderly Patients in Nursing Homes and Hospitals


Rapists prey on various categories of helpless victims. The rape of young and attractive women has been a constant of history. The widespread sexual abuse of children has come to be an accepted fact, when once it was hardly ever discussed or accepted. The rape of elderly women and men in nursing homes and hospitals is similarly not discussed, but should now be made a focus of urgent investigation.

The following accounts of sexual abuse have not been chosen to deliberately shock, indeed, some details have been excluded, and more horrific accounts have been omitted.

Throughout this account, a case is given for the rape of elderly nursing home residents being facilitated by greedy corporations which put profit before patient safety; a view expressed by lawyers collectives, judges, newspaper reporters, and researchers. This is not to suggest that the sexual abuse of elderly patients is confined to the private sector…
