It is nearly 4 years since the Mainman received his injuries while in the care of Autism Initiatives and Liverpool City Council Adult Social Care.
Litigation is still ongoing, my legal team has told me Liverpool City Council and Autism Initiatives are ‘cross’ with me for writing blogs and they wish me to stop.
I started blogging to make people aware just how Autistic Adults are treated by the very people who have a duty of care to them. The Mainman has now had 10 surgeries because of the incident.
Yesterday the government were defeated in the House of Lords over controversial proposals to allow councils to request exemptions from statutory social care duties.
Today Mayor Anderson made a statement asking the residents of our city to support a 10% Council Tax increase the increase will be used to keep Adult Social Care afloat he goes onto say if they don’t get an increase he will no longer be able to fund even basic services.
The fact Liverpool Council have no money doesn’t stop them from fighting [using public money] my litigation but then why should they care it’s not their money and not their child.
Doublethink the power of holding two contradictory beliefs.
Empathy is a feeling of understanding to appreciate the feelings of another.
In the case of Liverpool City Council who have a direct effect on the lives of Disabled Adults they are void of empathy. Liverpool City Council make decisions that affect the lives of vulnerable adults not caring of the impact or the disabled persons preference.
If a person is non-verbal (like the mainman) they have a right to be listened to and understood irrespective of the way they communicate.
In today’s climate in Liverpool the Disabled Adult is forced into doing things the council prefers rather than the disabled person, the more challenging the person the more they are left out of activities, the system wants someone who is ‘easy to manage’ and not someone who is difficult or demanding.
The mainman loves to sing (in his non verbal way) dance – feel happiness – his emotions are real……
He was recently honoury best man at his brothers wedding – he wore his old training shoes/tracksuit bottoms and ”New T Shirt” he was happy and content.
The best part of the day for the mainman was the food and Guinness he turned the day into his day, even having his own chocolate *wedding cake*.
It is important that Liverpool City Council see the world through the eyes of a Disabled Person.
Disabled people are in every way equal to all – Disabled Lives Matter.
MAMMY AND THE MAINMAN AT THE ‘WEDDING’
I’ve been unable to blog because of litigation against Liverpool Labour Council which is still ongoing and a trial will happen hopefully very soon, me in a witness-box, it will be the rebirth of Bette Davies I will be fighting for justice and recognition for the Mainman.
Oh yes ….. separate proceedings have now been issued and served upon Autism Initiatives.!
My heart sinks in despair and disbelief how the Mainman has/is being treated by Mayor Anderson and his administration.
Mayor Anderson has put millions of public funds pursuing his ‘dreams’ and cosying up to his corporate friends, while Adult Social Care/Service Support spirals out of control for the most vulnerable people with Learning Disabilities/Autism.
Parents and carers have been intimidated, brainwashed, or simply through complacency, been compelled to accept the cuts made by Mayor Anderson accepting standards in care that are below what they want for their adult children. The support worker with my son when the alleged incident happened had received ”no training” and on zero hour contract.
Mayor Anderson never accepts responsibility for anything that goes wrong in the city – he turned his back on the Mainman, turned his back on a profoundly disabled non verbal Autistic Adult…… gives the measure of the man.
THIS IS A PIC OF THE MAINMAN – MY WONDERFUL – HANDSOME – FUNNY SON WHO IS 42 TOMORROW.
LOVE HIM TO THE MOON AND BACK….. XXXX
When tenacious local campaigner, Audrey O’Keefe, prised from the reluctant council, the fact that Mayor Anderson’s private tribunal fees cost council taxpayers £89,000, I was shocked. All credit t…

Quite a while from my last blog, things still the same, litigation against Liverpool City Council on going and their attitude is no different – dismissive and indifferent.
The Mainman is still attending hospital his next surgery is the 19th August….. SIGH….. his surgeon said treatment should be finished spring 2016 the year when Mayor Anderson will be standing for an extra term by then The Mainman will be into his 10th surgery.
When you cast your votes remember how Mayor Anderson and his administration/officers have treated the Mainman – a man with profound Autism – learning disabilities and non verbal.
Mayor Anderson is a politician who is not aware of the most basic human values, knowledge, understanding and compassion. The way Mayor Anderson OBE treats the Mainman and his family gives the measure of the man, he is not worthy of your vote.
