Two posts in one day? Blimey, go me...
Unfortunately it means that bad things are happening. I've just seen a news report that Nottingham City Council has taken legal action against Mickey Summers, a lead campaigner and complainant in the Beechwood Children's Home scandal to shut him up.
The Council has taken out an interim anti-social behaviour injunction against Mr Summers with a somewhat wide-ranging scope -
"The injunction bans him from visiting all "non-residential" council
premises or approaching staff and from posting "any material involving
anyone from Nottingham City Council, its staff, councillors, employees
or agents" on the internet."
Considering that this concerns Mr Summers' experiences of being abused as a child at the hands of NCC (and the County as predecessors) this seems an excessively draconian attempt to silence the victim. NCC is never very keen for people to go around spreading information that undermines its reputation. It often uses the bullshit excuse that staff are affected. You know what I say to those staff? Get over yourself.
I hope Mr Summers is able to challenge the injunction at the full hearing.
