The CPS have placed the Aysha King case under review.
What precisely has happened here? The parents of a child removed him from hospital in order to seek alternative treatment abroad. Is this now illegal? Er, no, it is not. The parents are the child’s legal guardians, so are responsible for his care. They have exercised that duty. They apparently took him away without consent. Excuse me? We now need the state’s consent to remove a child from hospital and seek treatment abroad? When did that legislation get Queenie’s signature? Er, no, actually we do not need the consent of the hospital.
No crime has been committed. There is no negligence no child cruelty – or any of the other hysterical claims made in newspaper headlines this past few days. In fact, no crime has been committed. So, in fact, there is no case. What there is, is a malevolent over-reaching state apparatus that has bullied, harassed and illegally detained a law-abiding couple who were doing no more than trying to seek the best possible treatment for their child. Following which, the Hampshire police abused the European Arrest Warrant designed supposedly for criminals and terrorists to unlawfully detain law-abiding citizens going about their lawful business. In the face of the evidence of this outrageous abuse of power, the Hampshire Chief Constable remains unrepentant and refuses to apologise. Apologise? He should be sacked immediately with loss of all pension rights and made to crawl on his hands and knees over broken glass from Southampton to Spain to grovel in person to the victims of his behaviour, so heinous was the crime committed by his force, so vile was the abuse of power and the corruption of the rule of law.
Meanwhile, Spain demonstrates that it is no better by detaining these law-abiding citizens in prison.
Repeat after me; the state is not your friend, the state is not your friend, the state is not your friend. Indeed, the state is malignant, greedy, power-crazed and downright evil.
