Yesterday I worked on the data base of MPs who are potentially supportive for victims of financial exploitation or legal oppression.
As a result, I emailed all 16 MPs who signed Early Day Motion 516 entitled Reporting of Fraud. Besides congratulating them, I asked them whether they’d be willing to join an All Party Parliamentary Group of Fairness to match our Foundation for Fairness that we’re setting up.
First it is difficult to report a fraud. Then it is difficult to pursue a course of action. And finally it is impossible to get justice. That’s the only conclusion I can come to after my many communications with “star” and “veteran victims”. One horrible story after another.
How on earth can those people sleep at night, I wonder? Do they have a switch for turning their conscience OFF or is it never turned ON in the first place?
Well, there is a German poem that I always liked: a father who asks his son to take muster his strengths, his pleasures and his pains, for they want to touch the heart of stone of the king…
So we need the experience of pain, if we want to touch another non-feeling heart.
