A REVIEW OF 'THE KERR-HASLAM
PART 1: SILENCING THE WHISTLEBLOWER
`Virtue, truth and justice are irrelevant to the prince who wishes
conserve his power. He must be willing to murder any subject who
oppose him… yet it is often wise to represent to the people that the
is a suicide.'
This saga of psychiatric abuse, cover-up and now Government whitewash has run for forty years and still - despite Chairman Pleming's wish for 'closure' - the end is not in sight. He must fool himself if he imagines that The Report does not betray its bias and implausibility when, in the face of the mass of the evidence which it publicises, it asserts that that there was no conspiracy to protect the abusers Kerr and Haslam. The representative of a group of abused former patients has expressed her bitter disappointment with this unwarranted and bizarre conclusion, whereby 120 patients were criminally abused and dozens of complaints were made, yet only three officers of the NHS are to blame, and they only get a verbal smack on the wrist. Yet it is worse than that. So as not to publish further and conclusive evidence for a conspiracy to ignore the patients and protect the abusers, The Report also deliberately suppresses crucial evidence. It is also outrageous in its dissemblance of the harassment and victimisation of the only determined whistleblower in the whole history of the abuse and cover-up.
