Memory, Morrissey and the Beeb

On July 22 2015  the British Home Office found some files that had been missing.

The files referred to a few dead politicians and child sexual abuse.

On the same day the BBC broadcast  a radio documentary about false memory.

You can listen to the radio program here

It mentions a few words and phrases that often pop up in the vocalary of child sexual abuse denial:-

  • UFO’s

  • shopping malls,

  • parental alienation,

  • brainwashing your children so they won’t get fat….orwell_edited

  • The British Legal System needing more expert witnesses to inform juries about false memories.

But there was something new. They now have a new piece of lingo.

Some people apparently suffer from imagination inflation.

This is the forth BBC Radio program about false memories in six months!

OK Since I’ve got a bit of imagination inflation myself… here’s Morrissey

“It was good while it lasted”

 Update

Here is a link to another Radio 4 program that deals with false memory

A Personal Crisis

The blog came into being  because a of a personal crisis –  brought on by news coverage about child sexual abuse in the UK.  I had to respond in some way. So I started blogging and tweeting about so-called false memory.

I am very thankful to everyone who has supported me – I am now feling a lot better.

The false memory movement in the UK

I found quite a bit on the net that is critical of the false memory people in the US. But I wanted to understand how they worked in the UK. It seems that the movement in the UK has put more emphasis on trying to influence public policy. They’ve made at least two submissions regarding historical child sexual abuse in the past – and will doubtless be making a submision to the present UK inquiry.

The so-called grassroots charity

I used to think that the false memory movement was who they said they were – groups of´parents´ who were suffering  from the misfortune of  ´brainwashed´ adult daughters. Now I don’t think the group was ´grassrooted´at all. I think parents’ agony was just exploted to provide fuel to make good stories to the press. And I think this is still the case today

Feeling alone

When I started this blog I felt very alone. I wanted to find someone with the same experience  –   of being hounded by the false people –  to share with. I haven’t found that. But I have found stop-stalking-6people who do want to listen – and people who have been hurt in other ways that make them feel very alone. Because feeling alone – and not being able to share one’s experience – is one of the hallmarks of child sexual abuse
