Police and Crime Commissioner

as always excellent writing by Mr Kilfoyle.


It ought to come as no surprise that Jane Kennedy has announced that she will not be standing again for the position of PCC, or that she has left the Labour Party. As PCC, she has been virtually invisible to the wider electorate. It is as well to recognise that she was elected to the post on the basis of a miserable 12.7% turnout. Winning 56% of first preferences, it meant that she actually had a paltry 7% of the electors – principally, Labour voters – supporting her.

This ought to be a consideration now that she is to leave her very well paid – £80,000 plus – position. She was, of course, elected on a Labour ticket; but now that she has deserted Labour, should she not resign from her post immediately? After all, this would be an appropriate point for the post to be integrated into the structure…

Helpful. NOT.

Who By Fire

Ugh. Horrible evening yesterday.  Grenouille arrived home and somewhat to my surprise I saw the driver as well as the escort hovering outside the door.
“Can we have a word with you?”
“Yes, of course, come in.”

It turned out that G had been in a right old state all the way back, after An Incident during a College trip.  My heart sank.

The trip had been stressing G out all week.  It involved planning a Christmas shopping expedition to a big multi-retailer centre: budgeting for tickets, purchases and lunch out, then taking public transport from College to the Big City, navigating the streets and the shopping centre, interactions with strangers and food that wasn’t from the usual pack-up.  Not just for a couple of hours, in our little town, with a dedicated PA, but all day, somewhere large and unknown, with shared support.  For G, it was a massive…

Autism Initatives Northern Ireland – ”Nothing but the same old Story”

The Mainman is still suffering after receiving severe injuries while in the care of Autism Initiatives and Liverpool City Council – shame on them and the male support worker involved in the incident…….. [shall I name him] ….. I’ll name him in my next blog – did I tell you he has never been registered to vote – never been on the electoral roll…… now there may be a simple explanation for this…… I sure would love to hear it – he’s a man of mystery …….

As we know Autism Initiatives sacrifices the client rather than tarnish their reputation as they did with the Mainman.

Autism Initiatives also practice in Northern Ireland again as in Liverpool the clients received extremely poor care

Northen Ireland Social Care found a support worker while employed by Autism Initiatives wasn’t fit to practice due to misconduct on the 4th & 8th September 2017 – the support worker used restrictive practice methods upon a service user.

Obviously, there is a pattern running through Autism Initiatives – the difference is that Northern Ireland Social Care supported the client and took action against the support worker, unlike Liverpool City Council who turned their back on the Mainman

notice of the decision by NISC


Autism Initiatives has no sense of caring if they did they wouldn’t have treated the Mainman as they did.

……. and when the system tries to grind you down – just say …….fuck this shit…… 

Solidarity is Power

The Mammy and the Mainman – he makes me so proud ……..  simply the best……

Adult Social Care in Liverpool.

After five years fighting for justice against Liverpool City Council and Autism Initiatives, everything is in place and we can now get the help the Mainman should have had 5 years ago LCC and Autism Initiatives refused to honour the Mainmans suffering and stretch the litigation out as long as they could – safeguarding themselves and not the Mainman

The Social Worker involved in the case also failed the Maiman  – not following up and checking the staff were trained – which of course they weren’t.

This is the caliber of Social Worker involved in my son’s case while the Mainman was suffering and he did suffer the Social Worker posted this photograph on his open Facebook Account from the Royal Supreme Court London with the caption ” Just a typical day down at the high court in London init?

[This had nothing to do with the Mainman and his case]

Obviously, he is in the Supreme Court because of a Vulnerable Adult for whatever reason that may be – but to post a photograph on  Facebook with an open diary just shows the lack of professionalism and respect for the client and family…..

The same Social Worker also posted the following photograph on his open Facebook Account


Is it me ………or do you think these two photographs posted by a serving Social Worker employed by Liverpool City Council leaves you cold?  This Social Worker was involved in my son’s placement – this is the Social Worker who failed to protect my son.

I cried today when I heard Alfie Evans had died.

I admired his parents, his father Tom [21] though he was in unbearable pain he emerged as an articulate knowledgeable man who handled the system in a cool and professional way.

I don’t see the NHS through rose coloured glasses we all know of the abuse and deaths that are covered up.

There are a lot of over bloated egos in the NHS and unfortunately, I came across them when the Mainman was being treated at the special dental unit Liverpool Royal Hospital.

The last appointment the Mainman had was December 2017 – he was kept waiting in a crowded noisy waiting room – he became upset – the consultant advised me to stay in your car until we’re ready for you’  

The Mainman had his teeth cleaned and polish under sedation.

I emailed to confirm the next appointment I received the below email.

Dear Mrs O’Keefe,

Apologies for the delay in responding to your email.  The  appointment date we had scheduled for Peter, 22nd March, cannot be confirmed today due to a revision of the list for treatment. We are in the process of rearranging this and will inform you of the new date in writing early next week.

Kind regards,


They didn’t send me a new appointment but they did send me a Solicitors letter which read: Because of the Mainman became anxious at the last appointment we have put down the following rules.

  1. The Mainman will be picked up in a car with two security personnel and brought to the hospital they will remain with him the whole time even when receiving treatment – he will be returned to his home by the security personnel.  There were a lot of stipulations in a two-page bullying letter.


A few weeks later I received a telephone call from Liverpool Social Services – they also received a solicitor’s letter from NHS Special Dental Unit legal team saying in their opinion [the trust] feel I needed support – LCC said they would not take action and the letter was ignored.

The Solicitors letter I received was horrendous and very disturbing.  In my years of politics/disability campaigning, I have never received or read such a bullying letter, it is in breach of all disability laws and human rights it’s like going back to the dark ages of the 50/60.

To send a Solicitors letter tells me just how Liverpool NHS are removed from the world of Autism.

The only word I can use to explain why they wanted to exclude me from my son’s appointments is tyranny being cruel and oppressive towards my son and me  – they don’t give any explanation as to why they want me excluded. The solicitor’s letter was cruel, unreasonable, and an arbitrary use of power and control……. and without consultation.

The experience the Mainman would have to go through to gain treatment [clean & polish] would outweigh any benefits – to be collected by two strangers taken away by transport without me his mother who he spends all his time with would be too much for him to bare – this would impact on his PTSD and heighten his Autism – the NHS deals with all different members of the public no two people are the same but their response to my son  is to send a solicitors letter because they don’t know how to deal with Autism

5 years – half decade to fit one tooth due to poor dentistry all 18 surgeries failed.

The Mainman has been cool when attending the Unit – this was the first time he became anxious due to no fault of his own – his Autism was not honoured.

I asked an FOI as to what training the staff had received in Autism.


The NHS is like the curate’s egg good in parts – there are a lot of bloated egos – the special dental unit should have less ego’s more compassion.

Professor Youngson operated on my son [the 19th op] for 4 hours fixing his mouth and I thank him for that.

This tells you of the state of care for our Adult Autistic kids in the NHS.
