Ombudsman Green Light for Burying Complaints

02-02-2007 13:05

To All Concerned Indviduals, Parties, Allies and Ministers in UK, EU and Global World

This will impact on all disabled people, families and carers who complain about their care and social care and other professionals.

The United Kingdom Disabled People's Council (formely BCODP) need to act on this information immediately, because it's disabled people and their 'behaviour' that will be targeted for continued 'Disablism' and 'Victimisation' by The Local Government Ombudsman (LGO)

Cambridge Uni threatens to close Portugese Language Dept.

31-01-2007 16:00

Banner as Petition!
It's been announced just this week that Cambridge University is planning to shut down the Portugese Language Department.

The University used particularly underhand methods to announce this, as no prior notice was given to students this was going to take place, unlike last year's announcement of the possible closure of the Architechture Dept (thwarted!), where it was announced as a POSSIBILITY, rather than a CERTAINTY several months in advance.
