Abuse survivor’s new fight for justice

A CAMPAIGNING child sex abuse survivor is bidding to change a law which means council officials cannot be held accountable for their behaviour just a few months after leaving office.

The survivor, known as Elizabeth, wants to force an amendment to the 1972 Local Government Act, which frees officials from any responsibility for possible misconduct three months after moving on from their roles.

It follows the publication of reports by law firm Gowling in September which found no single officer could be held to account over the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal.

  1. So yet again we clamour for yet more unlawful legislation, to counter previous inadequate and unlawful legislation, introduced in the first place with the queen’s royal assent. The 1972 Local Government Act, passed by royal assent, helps corrupt public servants to easily get off the hook, as and when their misconduct in office gets exposed. It should be pointed out that this royal assent, is something which completely undermines and cuts across The Coronation Oath, which our queen took. Elizabeth swore to maintain the Laws of God to the utmost of her power. Every piece of legislation she has given her royal assent to ever since she became queen, cuts across God’s Law, and so she continually breaks her promise. Only in a lunatic asylum could this be allowed to happen.
