Russians lay a mountain of flowers for the French in sympathy over attacks

Russians have laid a mountain of flowers in sympathy for the French Click here to see

In other countries like Serbia, President suggested that citizens could express both sympathy and gratitude. In Belgrade where there is a monument called: Gratitude to France. President spoke how citizens could light candles there and Mayor of Belgrade did.

English seem to be far less emotionally expressive. Years of suppression are evident in stiffness of more than one area, traditionally the lip and the wallet. BBC showed photographs from some embassies around the world. But also a reporter moved by French people's hope for the future.

It is also true that British people have been victimized when they tried to speak up with no rehabilitation ever of, for example, whistle blowers. Understanding just how nasty the system is to British people is possible: from very early on children are made to attend religious schools by their ignorant parents. Tolerance for social injustice is installed in British way of life from very early on. Most do not dare speak up.

Even politicians in British Parliament have to suffer religious indoctrination on a daily basis in the form of prayers. There is no evidence that they read the Bible in full ever although it was sent to each of them. Selective reading, lack of critical thinking, do diminish the ability to create and defend human rights such as liberty. British accepted sharia courts. That is not madness but gross irresponsibility of the masses that failed to stand up to their politicians. Even political parties choose leaders at times that people look at with disdain and justifiably so.

 It is like it really does not matter that UK encouraged religious extremism which does lead to wars, wars to plundering and plundering to poverty which in turn makes people more likely to be religious. Most British people are not religious, but where is their voice?

Ghosts at The Royal College of Psychiatrists!!!

For some time now British psychiatrists have got themselves involved deeply with spiritual matters. It may shock the readers from the more enlightened societies in this world that this institution has Special Interest Group in Spirituality (the idea of Prince Charles). Soon due to have their next meeting, not too far removed from Halloween, but enough. They will be considering their failings. Surely, with all the assistance of all the gods in this universe, and the parallel ones, failure is impossible. Yes, many people died because of the actions of at least one of them, but in the ghost world they have merely relocated without the forwarding address other than vague "sea" if we follow the logic of Matt Berry, BBC's star.
When you watch the film below you will realise that UK is ideally located for ghosts as these reside in the sea and GB is an island and while not as great as China, it is an island.
Click HERE to watch ghosts in action. It is not scary at all.
Matt Berry, you are clever not to be a doctor as with the richness of your language alone you would meet more than one ghost handler at the medical regulator, The General Medical Council, the collector of really scary ghosts stories.

Post Ball Prince Charles not going to a ball

2D2BC05B00000578-0-image-a-20_1444345022904.jpg (634×509)Prince Charles, Patron of The Royal College of Psychiatrists, in England, Europe, is not going to attend a state banquet for Chinese President Xi Jinping following reporting from the media, including Daily Mail (click on their photo to read more) that he supported a paedophile bishop Ball by providing him with housing. The Bishop Ball is now in jail. At least one of his victims committed suicide.

In UK, four times as many men as women commit suicide. Some of those are victims of sexual abuse. The majority - over 80% of victims of abuse by clergy are men. Contributing to the suffering of men is unlawful, discriminatory approach to the treatment of survivors by British psychiatrists who have protected paedophiles for a while now by failing to provide correct conditions for diagnosis and treatment of these men.

Despite repeated requests to The Royal College of Psychiatrists to provide advise against the wearing of religious uniforms when working with mentally ill, they have refused. Yes, they have acknowledged that uniforms are not worn by psychiatrists such as white coats, but when it comes to religious uniforms they have no balls to tell the truth as it is: uniforms are a barrier to communications between patients and mental health care workers. They repeatedly and wilfully ignore their constitution which allows them to take action that is in the interests of the mentally ill. One of the functions they have is to advise the government, but they are mute on the point of religious uniforms because they have allowed moral corruption in. Their Chief Executive refused to disclose the names of the people who sat at their Public Policy Committee. Yes, that is against the law. But minority have the ways of rewarding such people - she got some honour somewhere.

To make the matters worse The Royal College of Psychiatrists allowed the establishment of Special Interest Spirituality Group which has worked against the interests of the patients. One of the members called her patients evil. This is like going back to the times when it was thought that demons possessed mentally ill. According to that logic current British Prime Minister is something supernatural nasty as he was the father of a boy who had epileptic seizures and died from it. Similarly, there was history of epilepsy and other mental disorders in the members of the royal family. Does Prince Charles really think that his family is supernatural?

Special Interest Group in Spirituality also had hit squad members causing havoc at GMC by removal from the medical register of a psychiatric specialist who pointed that religious uniforms should not be worn when working with mentally ill. They declared this serious professional misconduct and imposed no less than 16 conditions on her practise which could never be met. This is known as constructive erasure. In USA, Dr Bright's paper was published and you can read it. The nasty web of deceit spun through British medical institutions killed people and ruined lives of families and friends.

Prince Charles not only founded this spirituality group at The Royal College of Psychiatrists in 1999 but also pressed for it since early 1990's at least (time when bishop Ball had police showing interest in him for his criminal behaviour towards children). When Prince Charles was asked to intervene at The Royal College of Psychiatrists regarding the wearing of religious uniforms, his office stated it was just a matter of opinion and obviously, refused to do anything. They did not want more allegations against clergy to emerge. Patients should not talk! Yes, so much about human rights in UK. Just in one area where uniformed nun worked eight more people killed themselves. This is above their usual number of suicides per year.

Even today there are serious consequences of the ex-secretary of the Christian Medical Fellowship striking at Dr Helen Bright who performed the first study in the world on the wearing of religious uniforms in mental health. Read it here.

GMC (General Medical Council - regulator of medical profession in UK) protected paedophiles too. With committed regularity their head of panel formation put furious religious workers to judge Dr Helen Bright: exorcist at one hearing, preacher from Broadmore Hospital at another, other religious workers at other hearings, mental torture going on for years. GMC press office refused to answer if the head of the disciplinary panel formation worked for Opus Dei as it was alleged. However, soon after the question was asked she was gone from her job.

Of course, we do know that distressed people are more likely to be xenophobic and religious. Targeted administration of magnetic energy can reduce religiosity as well as racial hostility. And researchers at the University of York achieved that. 

So, at the next meeting with Chinese President Jinping should UK ask for more magnets to be manufactured to treat fearfulness and despondency in UK?

Doctors4Justice is aware of the symbiotic relationship between clergy and royalty. We do know that missionary goes in first, creates social injustice and soldier follows. Then, there is plunder. D4J is perfectly aware of the vast natural resources in Tibet as would be those who lost their religious foothold there. Prince Charles has been supporting a certain clergy member from Tibet....

Anyway here is some nice relaxing noise of rain drops which do not have to fall into a golden Tibetan bowl.

For those of you interested in the relationship between depression and greed read Melanie Klein, a psychoanalyst who wrote a book with a title "Envy and Gratitude". She suffered from major depression and pioneered child psychoanalysis.

Prince Charles' suffering at his boarding school which amounted to torture has been described here. One of the consequences of denial of one's true feelings is the need for something else to take the pain away such as various addictions. Religion has been described as opium of the people. But like other addictions it does not work long-term. At the end of the day one still has to do the necessary mental work.

Success: Minister for Faith government post abolished

large.jpg (350×219)Doctors4Justice has been successful in campaigning against the post of Minister for Faith. It has been abolished. Our campaign has been in keeping with equality principles for all (religious or not religious) and the essence of secular agenda.

Most British institutions already have a hefty dose of religious bias with many religious privileges.
It is not too difficult to explain why medicine is so loaded with those. Despair holds hands with superstition. Similarly, with poverty. In fact, many have argued that some religions lead to widespread poverty through the values such as prohibition of birth control, inequality between sexes, races and those of different social class. Recent research shows that those who are highly religious have higher levels of stress biomarkers.

For some people religion is linked to their identity and self perceived discrimination is sometimes misinterpreted as discrimination against religion.

When recently, in Broadmoor Hospital in UK, a couple of mentally ill patients who recently converted to Islam attacked staff because they were not allowed to pray in patients' common areas, one could not find in the mainstream media any mention of religious bias in medical institutions.

Broadmoor Hospital has employed one Dr Gwen Adshead Consultant Psychiatrist who got herself elected to the General Medical Council (GMC) to judge other doctors in disciplinary proceedings against them while GMC had outstanding complaints against her. Nice one. Once in, the complaints against Dr Adshead did not lead anywhere. Dr Adshead failed to declare her interests as required by the GMC's own rules. Not only is she a lay preacher but her sister is a Catholic nun. All of this was highly relevant in the case of Dr Helen Bright who was shredded to bits by the religious fury. Dr Bright objected to the wearing of the religious uniforms by mental health staff when working with mentally ill. After GMC stupidly got rid of Dr Helen Bright patients died in larger numbers than before.

Despite the fact that there was an increase in suicides in the area where uniformed nun worked for four years (eight more suicides) Department of Health officially started to pretend that every National Health Service Trust is responsible for their own workwear policy as a matter of law. Dr Helen Bright was advised to write to each one of them (there are over 50 NHS mental health trusts) because they are all independent in how they construct their policies according to Department of Health. Well, where was that independence when Department of Health wrote national policy for workwear on surgical and medical wards in NHS trusts? So, the lives of those who have appendicitis matter and the lives of those who have mental illness do not.

As most people would know not all UK areas are the same in terms of ethnicity and religiosity. Does this affects votes? And suicides?

There is evidence that suicides are highest among black men. "Suicide rates and classical indicators of suicide risk among inpatients committing suicide vary by ethnic group. Black African men have the highest rates of suicide compared to the White British group".Again, it would not be important to medical regulator or NHS that there is discrimination. There is no problem whatsoever in GMC commissioning yet another report to show that they really are not racist: who pays the piper calls the tune.

In terms of voting behaviour: "
  1. 9. Ethnicity• The ethnic vote in the UK has tended to heavily favour the Labour Party (average 80% of black & Asian vote since 1974).• This part of electorate becomes more important to parties as the immigrant population increases• Linked to social class - many immigrants live in working class urban environments• Labour Party has generally been more pro-immigration & welfare• 2005 - decrease in vote for Labour, especially amongst Muslims because of Iraq war - impact inner city areas e.g. Bethnel Green & Bow elected Respect Party

It was during Labour government that refusal to form national workwear policy in mental health started and continued to present day in UK through all the changes of various governments.

Resilience training for doctors

Many doctors have died while investigated by the General Medical Council. Their names are kept secret. Doctors4Justice went to court in an attempt to get the disclosure. The chair of the tribunal hearing was one of BMA lawyers. Tribunal decided that names should not be disclosed. There has been no independent investigation into hundreds of deaths.

However, GMC had their own little exercise and produced a report following the court decision in their favour and the refusal of the permission to appeal made promptly by D4J. The refusal decision was made by the same judge.

Recently, it has been suggested that doctors should receive resilience training. This allegedly is based on army training. The President of The Royal College of Psychiatrists is somebody who had something to do with working for the British army and is married to somebody who is GMC's expert witness in cases against doctors and also run state sponsored clinic for stressed doctors. It has been declared that most doctors who killed themselves while investigated by GMC were mentally ill. Just simply mad, you see, nothing to worry about.

So, what is the evidence for resilience training from scientific point of view?

1. Prolonged stress is known to cause immune system problems. So, one would expect increased mortality in investigated doctors from many causes not just suicides. The fact is that most did not die from suicides so why stress that so much? Ah?

2. Dr Miles Herkenham's team in National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland investigated the immune system response to stress. They noticed that most of the research has been on so called innate branch of immune system (the cells that mount the first response to pathogens). They wondered if there was such a thing as learning as in adaptive branch of the immune system that could learn in order to respond fast the next time the pathogen appears.

They did their research on mice. The introduction of an aggressive competitor mouse into the cage of male mice caused a bit of stress, bullied mice cowered, seem depressed, placing themselves in the dark corners and showing no interest in the scent of females.

When scientists injected their adaptive immune cells into another set of mice bred to lack these cells these mice were more likely to explore the open areas and were more interested in females compared to similar mice that didn't receive the injection. (Journal of Neuroscience, DOI: 10.1523/jneurosci.2278-14.2015).

The cells were injected into another strain of mice known for their unresponsiveness and these also were soon running around.

But the scientists were at a loss as to why is it that bullied mice (the donors of the adaptive cells) did not become themselves better with coping with the bullies and why chronically stressed people, sorry, mice often have weak immune system.

It is known that mice who receive a transplant of innate immune cells can show symptoms of anxiety and depression.

3. Why mice are not given the credit for being intelligent and noticing that the bully was not removed or that men in the lab coats may put more in their cages?

4. The medical regulator continues to collude with NHS and other bullies, killing doctors ( and patients) and happily watching as some of the bullies get even promoted to the positions such as, wait for it, providing professional opinions on sudden deaths of patients. And as the old Latin saying goes De gustibus nihil disputandum.

While French are revolting English wait for their turn in a queue, More secret files on doctors

There are many secret files on doctors held by The General Medical Council (GMC). Complaints are made against doctors but not investigated when investigations should take place, for example, and doctors do not know anything about it. Although it is unlawful to store incorrect data the regulator of medical profession, GMC does not worry about such things and it would appear English doctors allow themselves to be treated in this way. Making verbal protests is not enough. A bit of writing here and there is all we have seen from medical profession. No real appetite for change, or justice. As long as one reaches one's retirement appears to be the common attitude of state serving doctors. Oh, dear.

Doctors4Justice has evidence that GMC does not allow openness. When a complainant disclosed her complaint to a doctor complained about, the GMC' s official protested against the disclosure!!! Yes, a hefty complaint file was sent to the retired judge David Pearl who is hanging around GMC, part-time. He just circulated it without reading, presumably, to Fitness to Practice Directorate, notorious for self-protection and secretiveness.

No matter how well documented the complaints are the boys simply gang up together to defend themselves: that is defending GMC's own failures and those false complainants who are established within the NHS system. It is completely irrelevant to GMC how many patients or doctors die as the result of the injustice, or laws being broken by them. They just carry on. A little chat with Parliamentary Health Select Committee once a year is not a big deal in terms of accountability. A little report from Law Commission just supports them.  For GMC it is important to look good on camera and agree with everything that MPs seem to be asking for, or alluding to. GMC follow up Parliamentary concerns by writing a little page or two of a policy (eg on child protection) and claim of  reformation with no evidence to support it. Patients continue dying in numbers that could be prevented if they only had the guts to do their work.

And are British doctors able to challenge their regulator? Well, I think they will just wait for their turn in a queue allowing other people's victimization and promoting their own.

CHARLIE HEBDO and deaths due to religious extremism - Many lessons to learn but who is willing?

The security services would, by now, have an excellent idea of what makes an extremist. They would have had the help of their intelligence officers, police, psychiatrists, psychologists, forensic sociologists and others but I do not know if they have all the help they need to be able to prevent more murders/deaths.

Intelligence services need assistance of their political masters, sometimes. Political base is missing in many countries because of: the unwillingness to assess the threat properly (no, they are not all holding guns), unwillingness to contain the serious threat (long imprisonments where necessary), various prejudices, interests, wider implications for the political system as a whole and perhaps, the need for the personal development within the political elite as much as the general population where superstition and belief in supernatural is still present in many people (both within organized religions and outside it).

People die due to religious extremism all over the world and all of the time. It is not usually reported in the media when mentally ill patients die when religious extremism is favored by the state such as it happens in UK. Sometimes media report the relevant issues, repeatedly, without any provocation of the readers and responsibly but governments do just nothing for many, many years. For example, in UK there has been an excess of suicides following the wearing of religious uniforms by mental health workers. The Royal College of Psychiatrists in London pretends to this day that they can do nothing about it despite the fact that it advises the government, has constitution that allows it to communicate with anyone in any institution in order to improve the mental health of the patients and indeed, it is the duty that it does so. But the Royal College of Psychiatrists members prefer to drink tea while chatting nicely to the religious extremists they have in their various influential committees. It is known that Ethics Committees can act like honey to the bees for the religious psychiatrists and that leadership of the college has been weak for many years.

Not surprisingly, taking into account that the education of most doctors (and other population members) is defective from early school days when it comes to the issues of responsibility, The General Medical Council, the regulator of medical profession has employed religious fanatics to work in their fitness to practice committees and they have been effective in removing good doctors leading to more patients' deaths. UK has a shortage of doctors. In addition, the regulator having condemned some good doctors does not have the sense of responsibility to admit mistakes and recommend measures that would protect patients and good doctors. When some people in other countries hear just how many people work in NHS already they asked: "Are people in England very sick to need so many to take care of them?" The answers to that are known already.

Many UK doctors killed themselves while investigated by the General Medical Council, and there has been no independent investigation into those deaths. The General Medical Council did commission their own report. Reading the report one gets the impression of the lack of creativity, subservience to the paymaster (GMC), with no evidence of awareness of the social, economic and political factors relevant to the persecution of some doctors and not others. Closed minds all around. One of the recent recommendations is that doctors should be trained to be more resilient. A bit like a slave master telling slaves to work harder, longer and be happy about the circumstances of their life. There is only so much humiliation and hardship that any human being can bear. The brutality of the GMC regime has to be witnessed to be believed. The GMC's fondness of the religion has been evident with their demands for doctors to be struck off medical register because they offended the religious. For their purposes, GMC would carefully select their barristers, for example, one married to the vicar (likely to be very religious too). The same person then gets promoted to be a judge even though they demanded a doctor who never harmed anyone to be removed from the register. The fury of GMC's religious investigators has no boundaries and has been helped by the head of fitness to practise empanellment who selected the panellists so that GMC would get the result they want i.e. remove those who seem uncooperative to them or dissident. Doctors4Justice has been informed that one of their barristers is siting comfortably at her judicial bench in Kent, England having served the religious agenda of the previous Labour government sincerely so.

Doctors desperate for good psychiatric help often cannot get it. What can the rest of the population expect? Some of the psychiatric reports written for the General Medical Council about the investigated doctors are of such a low standard that it brings into question what do GMC lawyers know about expert evidence rules for the courts and why have those reports not been sent back to the writers as not compliant with the law of expert evidence, at least? Just putting more money to solve the problem, really is not enough. As they say, money is not everything.

People who are desperate for psychiatric help cannot get it while there are unemployed psychiatrists in this world. Recently, there has been yet another shooting at USA army medical facility as veterans are desperate to see psychiatrists and cannot get to see them. Some people just cannot wait.

Charlie Hebdo assassins' personality developments are yet to be fully known. However, we all know that it is not necessary to be a Muslim, or even religious to be aggressive or violent. Your best friends or family with whom you normally have good relations can turn against you particularly when they do not want to admit something to themselves about themselves. Taking responsibility for own feelings, actions and beliefs is not present to a sufficient degree in those who victimize others. Their early life (or/and later life events) may have been characterised by emotional deprivation, abuse and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness developed out of it. Out of despair desperate measures follow such as terror of others where personal fears of offenders infect others in the society.

Religion can be used in a manipulative way for the emotional aim of achieving the sense of power and sense of social association with nothing else  other than omnipotence and omniscience of supernatural. Religion can be used to glue people into identity group and group is stronger than an individual at times. Thus, from loneliness and despair of powerlessness victim rises to be a member of what is perceived as a larger and more powerful group i.e. that of the chosen religion.

As denial is the common psychological defence from the intrusive unhappy feelings but is not 100% effective some victims help themselves with abuse of alcohol, drugs, sex, religion, over work and  compulsive behaviours to do with excessive dieting, or exercise in order to feel better. All of us have seen it and so many times but how many have set time aside to think about it?

What is the cure? Installing the sense of hope is the first step. There must be a better psychological/social provision for child care that goes a bit longer into adolescence.

Dealing with own lack of responsibility when it comes to belief is difficult for many people because they have not dealt with taking responsibility for feelings (the easiest step), own actions (a more difficult step) and belief (even more difficult than taking responsibility for own actions).

What is taking responsibility for own feelings? Responsibility is defined as the ability to respond. It varies in human beings for a variety of reasons: some people are limited by physical/ structural or biochemical  abnormalities in the brain itself. Others have faulty learning and some have mixture of both. If one is feeling that the sun is burning on one's skin most of us would take some evasive/protective action. In other situation different type of action is required. If one has bacterial infection one would aim to kill those bacteria. The assassins in the case of Charlie Hebdo killed what they may have perceived as the cause of their unhappiness but which was likely to have many causes unrelated to Charlie Hebdo.

In general terms, taking responsibility for one's actions would mean correcting what can be corrected if the previous action was wrong, compensating those one has harmed and other measures may be appropriate in some cases from the individual such as forgiving oneself in order to prevent further self and social harm.

Taking responsibility for own belief means being honest, and analytical. When one finds that one has been wrong in one's belief it is reasonable to change that belief even if others may disapprove of it. Those who may feel badly about themselves (poor self-esteem) are less likely to question their belief.  It is like admitting that one is even worse than what one felt anyway. The violent clinging to the belief system can result.

Non-vigilant population allows dangerous political developments for themselves (in UK all the time).

However, sometimes one only has to be free, or happy in order to be hated. Some miserable people are intolerant of happiness in others and willfully blind to the price at which freedom came.

The next edition of Charlie Hebdo comes out next week. Tearful survivor, a well known doctor and journalist Dr Patrick Peloux from Charlie Hebdo told French TV that he could not help the shot colleagues as so many were already dead. Not easy for a doctor or any person, but especially a doctor. Watch here in French

Unemployed doctors and nurses in UK at the same time as there is shortage of doctors and nurses in UK

For a long time now there has been a customary "execution" of doctors and nurses in the NHS
(National Health Service) if, for example, they questioned bad medical, nursing, management or political practise, or if practitioners just, simply, excelled in their work. NHS is a very large and very busy employer with direct links to the regulators so, dissenting voices, or unwelcome competitors can be silenced for ever. If not immediately then over a period of years sometimes lasting 15 years or more of continuous harassment through the regulators.

Now, once again, one presumes, prior to the next election NHS has been used to point the waiting times in Accident and Emergency Departments and therefore, "crises" in NHS is created. The hope one presumes is that the voters would go back to the previously elected party.

UK has many doctors and nurses who are unemployed and who have been educated for many years at  the great public and private expense. This is not a secret.

The government has not rehabilitated the whistle-blowers who having harmed not a single person have been allowed to suffer decades of public humiliations, financial disasters and much more hardship.

The regulators pretend they are helpless and unable to speak up about their errors even when they know them only too well. Where is their insight into their mistakes?

Yet, regulators have condemned professionals for their lack of insight (to insinuate mental derangement of any kind) when whistle-blowers point with the great insight what has gone wrong and what will go wrong in the future.

When overwhelming evidence was presented that future loss of life will happen the regulators have continued to pretend that there is nothing they can do to the present day. Self-regulation does not work. There are very good doctors and nurses in UK who also do not work and meanwhile people suffer harm.

Yes, more people will die because public quite simply allow it.
