First they came for the poverty stricken families, and I did not speak out because I was not poverty stricken.

Then they came for the religious families, and I did not speak up because I was not religious.

Then they came for the home school families, and I did not speak up because I did not home school.

Then they came for the young families, and I did not speak up because I was not young.

Then they came for the large families, and I did not speak up because I did not have a large family.

Then they came for the single parent families, and I did not speak up because I am not a single parent.

Then they came for the joined families/ step parent families, and I did not speak up as I am not a step parent.

Then they came for the anti- immunisation families, and I did not speak up because I immunised.

Then they came for the families who question professionals judgement, and I did not speak up because I did not question.

Then they came for families with children younger than 3.

And there was no one left to speak up for me.

This Act passed in Scottish Parliament means that all professionals (dr/health visitor/ teacher/ nursery ect) can share data on you and your child without consent. Including personal confidential info like medical records.

They gather data about you and your family and make judgements about your child's wellbeing- without consent or necessarily involvement from you.

All of the criteria I mention are "risk indicators" used in the data gathering process.

This is being rolled out across Scotland now.
