The courage to speak

Ah!!! Yes!!! Advocacy!!!! it’s so simple. All you need to do is speak.

Express a choice and tell someone what the choice is.

Easy Peasey Lemon Squeezy.

I think if anyone wants to know how difficult it is to speak you should go to this link right now where Dame Jane Campbell speaks out against assisted dying in the guardian;

You should see the response. It’s largely idiotic criticism which i call tautology but i sometimes get my words wrong. What it suggests to me, or indeed what it reminds me, is sometimes you need to speak up in environments where you are likely to be damned for doing so. The constant abuse of complaints procedures to protect the guilty would be another example of this.

Anyway, i have spoken up and you can see my response if you follow the same link to page 4

I’m now sure that jane would like me to give you the link for Not Dead Yet which i understand she is standing down from. Hopefully we’ll have someone who can take up the reins.
