As someone who is a survivor of child abuse and severe domestic violence (along with my three children), I know all too well how the TRUTH with regard to these terrifying issues is all too often distorted.
Perpetrators wear so many different masks, they ARE CUNNING, their ability to lie to any officials designated to take on their cases IS something that HAS to be witnessed.
They ARE MALIGNANT NARCISSISTS who ensure that the persona that they sow to the outside world is one of a loving, giving almost too good to be true humanbeing.
The TRUTH however IS a very different issue, behind closed doors perpetrators ARE Jekyll and Hyde characters, their prey are made to understand that they will NEVER be believed, that they are nothing, not worthy of being loved.
Those cases that do find their way to court are documented by so called court appointed officials ( i.e. CAFCASS) who ARE so badly trained, so appallingly misinformed that their reports are written as if from a text book. They have NO REAL knowledge of what it is like to be a victim, text books do NOT contain THE FACTS.
Unless officials themselves are ( have been ) victims of child abuse or ( and ) domestic violence then they have NO REAL KNOWLEDGE as to what they are dealing with.
The legal system in this country is so badly flawed, so terribly outdated that it is laughable,....however the victims are not laughing.
Give victims of child abuse and domestic violence a public voice.
Hon. Ameen Salifu, a member of parliament has opened the Pandora box for for his own crucifixion!
He has listed schools on his CV which offers none of the courses he stated are run in those schools.
- University of Westminster has only two programs in the Urban and Housing Planning Dept;
- London School of Economics do not have any masters program in "International Housing";
- University of East London as well to not have any course in NGO Development and Management!
So the question is, where did he obtain his chains of degrees?
I urge the speaker of parliament to investigate this matter and if he is found culpable - as i believe he is - he must be sacked from parliament.
Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights. Sadly, many do not -- people in all parties and people in no parties.
GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures from our fellow Americans will be used to send a message to every candidate, elected official, and government employee.
GRIP is also asking every candidate to sign a contract, and we ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign the Contract agreeing to always be honest and protect our fundamental rights.
We ask you to vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. We must all do something about it, and signing this petiiton is quick, easy, and important.
Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always be honest.

Let's vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. This Contract can make a difference.
In 1984 Petros I. Tsiros passed away after making the biggest ever donation to the Church of Cyprus, a property donation believed to be worth by today’s value, of well over One Billion Euros (600 Million Cypriot Pounds), with the express written condition that the Church of Cyprus should use the profits from the sale and development of that land, for public charitable causes and every time such funds were used to announce that they originated from Petros I. Tsiros donation fund.
After thirty five or so years and hundreds of millions of proceeds from that donation, the people of Cyprus are still anxiously waiting for the first of such announcements and the handling of the donation has remained an enigma to many.

On the 3rd of April 2011, 35 young people from five states in North India got together at the Pinebrook Center near Shillong to discuss the main justice issues facing North East India. Out of this small meeting came the ‘Pinebrook Manifesto’ which you have before you.
We feel strongly that the political norms in our states must change.
We cry for more accountability, more honesty, more peace and more tangible solutions to the ongoing problems that destabilize and cripple the progress of our region. We have chosen six issues that need real and lasting change. This list is not exhaustive but we believe these are some of the main areas that need to be addressed. We realize that these issues are complex and that often we, the people of the North East, perpetuate the problems. But this manifesto is directed at us as much as it is our politicians. We want to see ourselves change as well as our leaders. All of us have signed this document; we ask that you also, as a person from the North East region, sign this document and join our movement for more integrity and justice in our States.
On May 15th we will send this manifesto, along with the signatures to the Chief Minister of Assam, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. This is just a small act but we believe even small movements of justice can situate us on a road to more peace. As Amos, the 8th century herdsman said “…let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream”. Send this link to your friends and your friends of friends from the North East. Join us in bring lasting change to our region.
For whatever reason whistle blowing is frowned upon in the UK – the ‘higher’ up the greasy pole one is the more dangerous it is to whistle blow.
There have been many notorious cases where whistleblowers have been severely punished for their honesty: David Kelly and Margaret Haywood for example.
Something needs to be done to encourage ‘unfortunate truths’ to be made public and to punish those who by action or inaction cover up for others.
