Publisher Description

This is the story in novel form of 3 Anglo-Russian children snatched by the Isle of Man care system due to an undiagnosed rare medical condition of one child. They have been prisoners for 5 years and the IOM Courts condoned this. It can happen to your children so is the IOM a safe place for children? John and Vera came here for better education but the worst school in the UK would have been safer
One Monday in 2014, 7-year-old Olga, an Anglo-Russian child was sent home from school in Ramsey Isle of Man as she had vomited. Dada took her to the GP who said it was gastroenteritis and prescribed fasting for 24 hours. The parents did so on Tuesday, but at 8.00am on Wednesday when she was to have her first meal she collapsed and was admitted to Nobles Hospital. A brilliant doctor saved her life and said neglect was the likely cause but there was a 1 in 100,000 chance of a metabolic explanation. Social Services stormed in and seized the children. A week later the 1 in 100,000 chance came up, but as with brittle bones cases, social services can never admit mistake. Their own ‘hired gun’ child psychologist said removal from her parents had been bad for the middle child, Tatiana, whilst Maria was a lively bright child and contrary to the social worker claims, was not closing down The consultant said Olga needed to be returned to her parents as did a consultant at the renowned Alder Hey childrens hospital. A foster carer misled Alder Hey by a factor of 500% on admissions to hospital to get them to agree to an operation a social worker wanted. When Alder Hey knew the truth they said no, but Olga with Addisons disease was saved from a risky operation by her English father and the consultant at Nobles, who was later removed from the case. Social services alleged child neglect by the parents, but glossed over two Addisonian crises by Olga in their care. When a foster carer forced a sick seven year old child to clear up her own vomit, that was OK. Social Services promised the three children, who had been described as a tight little unit, would not be split up. The IOM Family court refused to hear evidence from the children, and rubber stamped what social services wanted. After the verdict, social workers split the children up within weeks as the oldest child fought for her rights so was pushed off to another foster carer.
The Social worker said that in her opinion the mother had not been sufficiently exposed to the British Way of Life. This is racist. The mother, ‘Vera’ whose name must be disguised in this novel, as with the children’s names, was Russian, but is a Muslim or a Chinese woman any different? Racism crosses boundaries. How should the people of Russia react to the kidnap of these half Russian girls, one of whom said she wanted to join 106 Airborne when she was old enough to defend Russia? Dada John had to explain Addisons for her, but pulled strings so she has a genuine Airborne blue beret. In December 2018, Olga warned dada that the social worker wanted to talk to him, but he should not believe what he said. The girls cannot talk in Russian but can sing the anthem of Russia fluently as the Guardian admitted in a report.
The mother Vera is a gentle person and was devastated by what had been done in 2014. Biased contact reports trashed her for following WHO advice on hand washing when the contact centre said it was OK to eat OFF the tabletop! In January 2016 Vera had a breakdown, but her sister flew 3000 miles to help her, so she made it. John is English but says he has four Golf Star Heroines,Vera, Olga, Tatiana and Maria. John also has Russian ancestors. By exposing this crime against three children in the Isle of Man, he hopes the Manx people will say ‘enough’ and if the people of Russia say ‘nasha’, these 3 children who adore the Rodina they have never seen, maybe able to visit the Grand Kremlin palace soon. How many other child victims are there of social services?
