Hi just wandered if you had all seen this. It is outrageous in my opinion. I do not know how this man has not lost his job yet. He is so very unproffesional. I am referring mainly to the point he makes in section 3 on the link.

I am absolutely flabbergasted!

Oh yes have seen it and read all of the submissions so far published
Including the one from
Prof. James C Conroy, Dean: Faculty of Education, University of Glasgow-someone who was invited to be part of Badman's Expert reference group

"In my 30 odd years of professional life in education I have rarely encountered a process, the entirety of which was so slap dash, panic driven, and nakedly and naively populist."

That is absolutely outrageous. Besides, doesn't he realise that Munchausens by Proxy has largely been discredited?

"His opening question was to ask me if home educating mothers suffered from Munchhausen's by Proxy. I thought this to be a curious starting point - that of questioning whether home education is a symptom of mental illness"

Wowsers. How is home ed comparable to MBP in any way, shape or form? How on earth would that comparison have slipped into his head, or am I totally missing something, does he know what MBP actually is?

How is this guy getting away with this kind of slander? Surely this is classed as discrimination against home edders?

It's horrifically shocking that he is coming at this whole thing with such apalling prejudices shocksadangry
