The Life and Times of Amy Allan #JusticeforAmyAllan

28 Aug 2019 - 3 Comments

This is Amy. She is 14, stands 4ft 8inches tall, a mop of hair with a life of its own and a huge smile, her trademark features. This time last year she was out at a local water park in Greenock at Wavefront Leisure Complex with three of her best friends, where hours were spent […]

You may choose to look the other way…

06 Jun 2019 - No Comments

It’s my birthday today (thank you for the tweets and messages) and last night I heard a rumour that St Andrew’s Healthcare were going to get a roasting from CQC about their services in a report published today. For those not in the know St Andrews, or St Arseholes as Mark Neary coined them perhaps […]

Live tweeting #JusticeforCol’s inquest: interfering with the proper administration of justice?

03 Jun 2019 - 1 Comment

Last week I shared a blog post and infographic detailing how I’d spent the money raised to support my Open Justice work in 2018/19. One of the inquests I covered in that period was Colette McCulloch’s. Colette was a brilliant and talented young woman who was just 35 when she died. You can read a […]

Crowdfunded #OpenJustice 2018-19

30 May 2019 - 1 Comment

Last year, at the conclusion of the HSE prosecution of Southern Health I had a number of conversations with people about crowdfunding my open justice work longer term. It was suggested that some people might be prepared to pay an amount monthly to help out with my costs and to cover my time. As uncomfortable […]

#RROAppeal What price scrutiny and transparency in the Family Court?

22 Feb 2019 - 1 Comment

This time last week I was sat in *the* grandest room I’ve ever tweeted from. Court 33 at the Royal Courts of Justice, on the couple of occasions when I looked up to the high ceiling I couldn’t help think you could fit at least another floor, maybe two in if space were tight. I […]

Live tweeting inquests and chasing open justice

10 Feb 2019 - 1 Comment

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve blogged and I’ve yet to venture onto twitter personally this year. Indeed I’ve sent a grand total of 5 tweets, all from @JusticeforCol and the last one said We'll not live tweet today, will be dealt with ahead of inquest in March #JusticeforCol — JusticeforCol (@JusticeforCol) January […]

Six months of crowdfunded #OpenJustice work

29 Oct 2018 - 1 Comment

At the start of May I blogged about how I’d asked the kind souls who live on the internet to support me with my Open Justice work. I asked for help and you replied, with your cash and your words of support, and for that I’m still so very grateful. I wrote an update of […]

Profound injustice #LEDER #FestABLE

30 May 2018 - 1 Comment

Anyone who has seen me, spoken to me, or tweeted with me since the interim LEDER report was published has had to listen to me raging about the utterly demoralising contents. I’ve yet to actually take my needle to canvas to stitch the new and (not in the slightest improve) premature mortality statistics. Instead of […]

When is a world first not a world first?

11 May 2018 - No Comments

When its Tory propaganda of course. On Tuesday I was watching Parliament health and social care questions and was interested to see my local MP, Kevin Foster, ask some fairly anodyne question about social media and children’s mental health. I didn’t really think much of it, other than I was pleased to see he was […]

Record of Inquest – Danny Tozer

09 May 2018 - No Comments

Danny’s parents have shared the final record of inquest from @TozerInquest with me and requested that I share it. It’s here (or click on the image below, both will open the full record document in a new window), complete with spelling error of where Danny was born. The document records Danny’s cause of death as: 1a) […]
