01-07-2008 12:19

This story has been running in the mainstream media, both local and national press, since mother of five Natalie Bracht, left her home in Sunderland on 17th May this year and went on the run.

She told local papers and social services that she had fled her home city of Dusseldorf to escape a dangerous husband involved in a religious cult. She was provided with housing and benefits etc but whether the authorities believed this story or not is unclear. What we do know is that Childrens Services were involved in the case from the beginning.

Ecaenia ceremony SPEAK demo report

24-06-2008 19:37

Oxford University's annual Encaenia Ceremony, at which it hands out honorary degrees to those it deems deserving, took place on Wednesday 18th June. This is one of the most prestigious events in the university's calendar , a tradition that goes back many centuries, when it tries to impress the world with a show of pomp and ceremony. Well, the SPEAK Campaign has established its own tradition; to inform those attending such events, and the public, about what goes on behind this charade of dignity and nobility, of the appalling suffering that goes on behind the locked doors of the university's laboratories, of the animals who are sitting in cages in fear, pain and suffering while Oxford celebrates its special day.

60 years wiping the smirk of the NHS

18-06-2008 13:44

you really can't fake smiles - top scientists have proved it.
This really is a tale of human interest. Flicking through the online pages of today's British Press I learn how in future (after the 60th anniversary of the NHS) British nurses are to be rated on their smileyness. After choking on my meusli and recovering from a mild cerebral apoplexy, I thought the implications of this little scrap of news are just too good to be missed by the kind of people who don't read newspapers anymore but still might rely on the NHS. Please note there is no need to encourage consultants or hosptial managers to be smiley.
