I watched a documentary the other evening reviewing the case of Beverly Allot and how this trusted nurse working at Cottage Hospital near Grantham Lincolnshire ( Margret Thatcher’s home town) was able to murder 4 children in her care, attempting to murder 5 more and causing grievous bodily harm to a further 6 small children and babies.
The subject of Munchausen’s was
raised as the fundamental cause for Allots actions as someone who
wanted to attract attention and sympathy toward herself from a
young age and in later life she was to transfer her personality
disorder on to others and sadly small vulnerable children at
which point her illness has become ‘Munchausen’s Syndrome by
Proxy’. I ask are there correlations between this and Parental
Alienation Syndrome and I recall this being discussed on John
Hemming’s Fassit forum last year?
When I came before District Judge (now HHJ) Pearl at Watford when she was hell bent on unraveling a perfectly sound joint residency order and ample contact order I had spent most of 2004 negotiating and ordered by her college the now retired HHJ Vilgeon. By 2005 I was acting as litigant in person and as most will tell you, you feel like a lamb to the slaughter as you entre the courtroom and on one occasion I tried t justify my ex’s irrational behavior by suggesting Munchausen’s but this was dismissed as none existent by the judge and her barrister in a snide piss take indicative of this bias and bigoted judge who along with my associate Sam Halimond will do my utmost to reveal her like and I hope to get struck off . I was also told at this time that Judges that maliciously do down the father most likely get promoted and as you see this was the case and she did not even complete the task or our case she so wistfully reserved and her lackey DJ Rhodes had to complete the deal!!
Having said Munchausen’s did not exist , on my
ex’s ‘advise’ she ordered that if I were to see my kids again I
would need to undertake a psychological report so travelled to
Bury St. Edmunds at the mothers legal aid fee for such an
examination. I spent several hours in consultation and asked if
he was aware of Munchausen’s which he assured me did exist and
seem most rife in family issues. Upon return and presentation to
the judge of this report she recognized the report was more
damaging to the mother and thus was deemed inadmissible although
Pearl did recognize there were issues as they were at the mothers
door she would do nothing and I was able to carry on enjoying
contact with my children for a further 2 years in spite of the
antics of my ex until September 2007 when she has willfully
withheld my children ever since and there is nothing I can do
about it , court orders are not worth the paper they are written
on as they cannot be enforced on the
This week, at the risk of being arrested, I handed my son a birthday card as he went into school as I thought the school closed for the Easter break and his birthday is during that time, having only seen him 4 times in the last 30 months I did not recognize him even though he was arriving with his mate who I did recognize, this kind of heartbreak I would not wish on anyone.
