Thanks OP.
any other guests at the same time?

Awning10 Tue 06-Oct-20 06:21:51

I don't think so. They started the show with a snippet of the interview so it may be prerecorded. They didn't mention anyone else, just the court case.

Wonderful and very powerful. Poor Kiera

FindTheTruth Tue 06-Oct-20 08:40:09

they affirmed immediately and no investigation

Cuntysnark Tue 06-Oct-20 08:40:18

My heart is aching for her.

puts you on a path that changes your life forever.... most adults outgrow gender dysphoric feelings

Was good. Keira very clear, and questions, given time limit covered issues well. Solicitor good on lack of evidence on which to base any informed consent.

StandWithYou Tue 06-Oct-20 08:42:17

Keira is so brave to do this - thank you. My jaw dropped at times because she is saying so clearly what happens and why it is so wrong. This is what needs to be heard.

Psychological conditions need psychological treatments.

Brilliant interview Keira.

Thank you Keira! Very best of luck to you.

Just heard on radio. Struck by her common sense statement "Psychological conditions need psychological treatments."

Seems so obvious and the call for better mental health provision as gender identity issues do not present in a vacuum.

Good to hear this discussed in this timeslot. Keira if you should see this the points you made came across well. Will be following your case as closely as possible. Whatever the outcome, and let's hope it is the right one, you are an amazing young person, and the skills you show in leading so that others don't come to harm will play out in your life going forward. A tearful start to the day for me, listening to this, but one in which I am heartened and made hopeful, yet again, by the courage and resolve of a young person. Go hon star

God, she is so brave. That was very clear and sad. This is a national scandal.

FindTheTruth Tue 06-Oct-20 08:48:36

Solicitor Paul Conrathe quotes Professor Carl Heneghan Oxford University - The current evidence base does not support informed decision making and safe practice in children.

Professor Carl Heneghan blog with that quote

Thank you dear Keira thanks

Such an honest and clear interview, she is so calm and measured and courageous despite all she's been through.

So heartened to hear the truth being spoken and allowed to stand freely on the BBC. It really is quite something.

FairFriday Tue 06-Oct-20 08:58:15

I would love to see Kiera invited into schools and universities to speak - she comes across as so very calm and logical, as someone who is open and honest about what has happened to her.

Mummyoflittledragon Tue 06-Oct-20 09:01:18

Thank you for letting us know. What a brave young woman!

Does Kiera still need some digging doing?

I'm a bit behind on where spadework is required. Caught up with Ann Sinnott's gardening at the last minute but could do with direction on where to dig next.
