More details
The Justice for the Surrey & Borders NHS Trust's Garden Centre Workers campaign blog is at and this campaign started after the Surrey and Borders Trust decided to cut the paltry £3 a day it was paying to workers with learning difficulties at its comercial Old Moat Garden Centre in Ewell, Surrey to nothing.

In return for your support I will freely provide IT support , gardening services or any other reasonable work task you want me to do for one hour.

Comments on this pledge

  • I would ask you for your labour and for it to be employed in cleaning these windows. I would like and enjoy a clearer view of life around me. Which is surely not the case for the window licking inbreeds who populate the ‘managerial’ levels of ‘Trusts’. I should say I’d prefer you to summon these particularly repulsive monobrows currently grabbing wads of Blair’s extra ‘NHS Funding’ to a court of justice and to require them to answer the charge of corporate larceny and corruption.

  • I'm pleased to sign your Pledge and as you know I do already actively support your campaign blog and as a Surrey person am very grateful to you and Jill Goble for all the work you are doing researching and questioning. I think you have already uncovered a great deal of important information.
    The hour's work I would like you to do for me is IT related. I think it is important to understand the history of mental health care and treatment. Would you spend an hour researching the possibility of using the Project Gutenberg or some other free ebook project, to put Claire Baron's "Asylum to Anarchy" published 1987, on the net. This detailed what happened in Paddington Day Hospital in the mid to late 1970's. It is history that I believe needs to be freely available.

  • Thanks for your help guys, and anyone reading this please remember that we best defend our rights by defending the rights of other people.

    In this case the rights trampled are the rights of people with learning difficulties and the people doing the trampling are being paid from taxpayers money to protect those rights.

    This implicates us in their actions, so please pledge now and send a clear message that we support and want to care for vunerable people far more than we want to unconsciously hand over our money to mean and unthinking bureaucrats.
