I have read GS Misc 1378 (AC activities report) & GS Misc 1381 (NST Update). I really hope I am wrong, but I can find no record of any discussion of any follow-up re the 21/6/23 termination of the ISB and the survivors left in torment by that decision? Are the 2 Archbishops, the NST, the AC etc really so uncaring and so determined to emulate the Priest and the Levite in the parable of the Good Samaritan that they simply refuse even to engage with any aspect pertaining to those of us whose lives they wilfully and deliberately blew… Read more »

If they are emulating characters from the Good Samaritan, I would not say it was the priest and the Levite. The band of robbers who attacked the unfortunate traveller in the first place may be a better fit.

Not a comment specifically on this paperwork, but one more broadly related to the ISB fiasco. I’m delighted to see that Jasvinder Sanghera has been appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire specially for services to victims of child abuse, among others.

I’m similarly delighted to see Alan Bates has been knighted.

Citation: JASVINDER KAUR SANGHERA CBE She is a national and international expert on forced marriage (FM) and honour based abuse (HBA), constantly seeking to help victims and survivors and raise awareness of their plight. She helps shape and inform government policy, successfully championing four new laws, two of which being raising the age of consent to marriage to 18 for all children and banning virginity testing. She has advised Government departments internationally on FM and HBA, providing testimony for FM legislation in Canada, Australia, the EU and the US. Her campaign in support of repatriated victims of FM led to… Read more »

Citation seems ‘strangely’ silent on all she did for victims of church-related abuse, as our only hope & advocate (until the AC put a stop to that).

If it helps, Simon, the summary listing in the Cabinet Office’s Transparency Data documentation says ‘… For services to the Victims of Child, Forced Marriage and Honour-Based Abuse’.

Wow, what a woman. Out of curiosity I googled the “Naz and Matt Foundation” and found it was set up to combat religious homophobia. The website strapline is “Our mission is to never let religion, any religion, come in the way between the unconditional love between parents and their children. https://www.nazandmattfoundation.org/ One thing listed there was a report – Understanding The Impact Of Coming Out To Religious Parents – which said “LGBTQ+ individuals from a religious or culturally conservative background are twice as likely to feel suicidal as the result of a negative coming out experience to their parents [compared… Read more »

No wonder the powers that be got rid of her. Way too much knowledge and strength and integrity on her side and way too much risk to their power, bad behaviour and mind games on the other side. Definitely sack the messenger.

Truly delighted Jasvinder’s work has been recognised and valued, this appointment is richly deserved.

To Simon Gell- it is hard to give you any adequate reply as you continue to be hung out to dry by the archbishops and all their chums . All the ‘interim measures ‘ trumpeted last July are obviously just so much window dressing. They should all be ashamed and a lot of us feel for you and others in your position Simon S – well done for finding the citation for Jasvinder. The BBC were rightly cheering about Alan Bates but then decided to mention only two ( and the best known?)of the newly appointed dames, missing out anything… Read more »
