New Inquest Into Ella Kissi-Debrah’s Death

This is utterly groundbreaking. The Ella Roberta Family have won the right to another inquest into the death of their daughter Ella. The Attorney General said “I have concluded that there is new evidence which may alter the substantial truth of Ella’s death”.
He went on “I am therefore able to give my permission for an application to the High Court to request a new inquest, based on the evidential test being met.” His report said there was a “real prospect that without unlawful levels of air pollution, Ella would not have died”.

Disability Friends Repost Stress

I just feel so stressed out over certain things right now. Someone has to raise this point urgently.

From: Musings of a Trainee Battleaxe

I can’t relax or sleep at night because I’m stressed out over certain things right now. I’m upset that due to having a disability involving the PDA nature of Autism most likely means that people will chose to punish me rather than help me. That is an awful way to have to live. There will NEVER be support there but only punishment. There will always be HATE there but not love. I’ve read so many stories this week relating to those with the PDA profile of Autism literally coming home from school as a child or work as an adult (if they’re lucky enough to get employment) actually crying and saying that they deserve to die because others have made them feel extremely bad for their issues.
