McNamara's Mimosa madness

The bewigged anti-human fool that passes for a legal expert down at the Counts Louse, Stephen McNamara, excels himself again.

Now the man that took council behaviour to a new low in 2005 when he personally patrolled the entrance to the Counts Louse to prevent learning disabled protestors from using the council’s toilet facilities when they campaigned outside over the loss of their daycare services has dreamed up a new wheeze.

Because he’s only gone and started legal proceedings against families who made allegations that their elderly relatives were being abused in Mimosa‘s Kingsmead Lodge care home!

Apparently the brilliant lawyer has decided, in all his wisdom, that these relatives – who had to pull their elderly parents out of Mimosa’s ‘home of horrors’ – should pay up for the dubious ‘care’ their relatives received at the hands of the council’s controversial private elderly care providers who are still under serious investigation over their conduct.

The Blogger’s assured that McNamara will be receiving a suitably robust response to his latest idea in the next few days.

Looks like the Mimosa soap opera is back then.

    It wouldn’t suprise me if the allegations are true. Whenever you get private people running things all they care about is profit ! The council has also turned into a private company with all its best value targets and corporate plans they just couldn’t really give a toss about people ! It would be interesting to know how much this mcnamara fellow earns for aiding and abetting private capitalist rich folk bully pensioners !

    “Because he’s only gone and started legal proceedings …”

    Not quite. Despite being headed “NOTICE OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS” it is just a warning letter. If payment isn’t received in 14 days the council then might start legal action.

    It doesn’t change the story, I just thought I’d flag it up.

    Listen, ME, via the council has already paid the bill for this care. Am I supposed to write it all off? Why? so the family gets a legacy?

    In reply to bemused I agree that this company appears to be untouchable as there is bad press about this company all across the countryThe regulators seem powerless to bring this provider to task.There has been a recent article in the Daily Mail (09/07/2009) re; Valley park Nursing Home about a lady who died due to lack of care !..They just seem to be getting away with it because of their aggressive stance when dealing with complaints..Surely we owe it to our elders to tackle these types of providers as because one day we could end up in their ‘so called care’……….
