8th Feb marks 5th yr since little Zane was killed.We will honour Zane's memory & celebrate his life through words, music & fireworks. Friends welcome 7:30pm. Pls RSVP to family.
All we want for Christmas is our little boy. Zane died and authorities lied; protecting their reputations and kicking our sons death into the long grass.
On the 15th December, we marched in Woking town center alongside unions and some 60 plus firefighters. We did not visit Santa or enjoy the splendid Christmas decorations as we snuggle up to watch a Disney film with our precious son Zane. instead, we marched in the freezing rain begging for signatures to our petition and fighting for the TruthAboutZane.
Following Zane's death and my husbands paralysis from Hydrogen Cyanide poisoning, at a time when we were most vulnerable, broken and grieving deeply, we were subjected to an adversarial 6 week inquest at Woking Coroners Court where the authorities and other parties including the Coroner himself had legal representation. We were denied legal aid 3 times and forced to pay £70K just for legal representation and there were many other costs. We were denied an Article 2 inquest and denied a jury, we were denied equality of arms yet they spent public money like water to protect themselves in a flawed inquest.
Make no mistake cases of injustice and cover ups are often obscured by a type of bureaucratic violence upon the victims, perpetrated by public authorities who have become conduits of corporate power. This situation is exacerbated by the removal of checks and balances, standards, and regulations that should exist to protect us all.
Austerity kills, and when Zane died authorities lied.
Issues of Climate change, Austerity and social injustice exist in abundance both leading up to and after Zane’s death.
We need you to be aware and act on the conspiracy of silence over landfill and the harm it causes.
Please support our campaign alongside the unions and sign the petition
Innocent children like Zane should not go to bed and not wake up, poisoned in a home infused with nerve agent.
Home should be where you rest your soul not where your soul is laid to rest!
Our precious child Zane, should have been 12 years old on Sunday 21st October, it is a time when many of his little friends are celebrating their birthdays and we soundly appreciate the happiness this brings, as this would be our only wish at this time; for our boy and his friends to all be celebrating and sharing these happy occasions together.
Zane being poisoned in a house infused with the nerve agent; hydrogen cyanide detected by specialist HAZMAT at 'Very High Levels', and the misdirections that followed have created a different world view for us.
We are left to mourn the beautiful times we had with our boy, his fearless endeavors at Go Ape on his 7th and last birthday, his looking forward to F1; as Zane was a special member of Brooklands Clubhouse from where he loved to cheer Lewis Hamilton around the track. Zane loved it when he went to Asia; indeed he simply loved meeting people wherever he went; neighbours, school, church, and the dojo for Tai Kwon Do leading the Creed. As many parents, we had hopes and dreams for Zane, he was one of us, by that we mean one of that group of people that care about the other human beings around them. Zane had chosen this caring path early in life. Just taking a short period before his death Zane had helped the charity the Samaritans prepare for Christmas dinner, he helped found his great schools Eco Team, and was interviewed about why Sustainability is important in which he explained that we liked to look after our garden, but the world s one big garden that we are all responsible for. Zane cared about his neighbours and wanted them to be protected from the local flooding, so he came to a small community meeting that reached out to authorities to act on these concerns, we were not to know just hours later Zane would pay the ultimate price; the injury and death he was keen should not happen to neighbours through authority failure to listen to repeated community concerns over flood protection.
Zane's death was preventable, and the truth of what happened was known, notified, and reported on the day. The truth about Hillsborough was also known on the day and it should not have taken 30 years to bring those responsible to justice following a flawed inquest. As the RH Andy Burnham pointed out to Parliament they should hang their heads in shame at the injustice done to Zane as he stands as a man of integrity, strong in his support of truth for Zane.
In addition to support from RH Andy Burnham and the Labour Party standing in support for Zane to have an Independent Panel Inquiry (which is how Hillsborough got the truth), unions, political parties, the public, celebrities, and organiations are also standing up in support, also appalled at the blatant injustices and blatant abuse that litters the Zanes case. The Mail on Sunday headlined this wicked abuse as 'The Most Toxic Cover Up of Them All'.
As we approached Zane's Birthday the Green Party Annual Conference unanimously passed a motion in support of TruthAboutZane. It was the final and a most memorable motion; emotional for leaders within the Party who were keen to reveal the truth, the facts, and protect the public from the ticking time bomb that landfill represents. http://www.truthaboutzane.com/updates/the-green-party-pass-emergency-motion-backing-truthaboutzane
Unions get it, they are also passing motions of support for TAZ and are building their own energy, momentum, and leadership, to obtain an Independent Panel Inquiry for Zane, and protect members, and the wider public at risk. Great unions traditionally amongst the greatest defenders of rights and justice like the Public and Commercial Services Union, UNISON, and our very great Fire Brigade Union are at the forefront. These voices, and the growing wider public, we give thanks to on Zane's Birthday; thanks to you we have some space to feel our heart felt memories of Zane, and hope that, together, we will ensure Zane's legacy is one of truth. It is this hope that is something positive to celebrate on Zanes Birthday.
We loved seeing your little face as you beamed with joy all kitted out in all in one green fatigùes as a warrior soldier running purposefully through the woods on a mission. You loved playing football with your friends, Quadbiking, indoor climbing walls, reading your Roald Dahl collections, hilly walks, rolling in piles of leaves shed from our trees in the garden having jumped from the seat of your swing which swang from the tall Sycamore. You loved playing chess and would win with that glint of fun in your big brown eyes. You loved seaside fish and chips in the summer, and playing in the snow with 'mummy daddy' in winter, and your treat of going to school on your bright red sledge powered by mummy.
For years you would impress us and passers by with your bike stunts and tricks; the passing fire engines and their smiling crew would slow down to watch this cutsey; curly haired little boy, full of the joys, riding up and down the footpath in front of the Thames doing his stunt show. Big Foot Sasquach; your new BMX, had just arrived it, it turned out to be your last big Christmas present. The day of your maiden ride you were beaming with pride, then out of the blue up pops a young boy who asks if he can have a go. I was not surprised when you gladly handed him the bike saying 'you have a go'. You loved your bikes but you cared about people more.
Please raise a glass to Zane on the 21st October, the greatest gift remains the support of people that want to do the right thing. If you could help us get more signatures, by forwarding the petition to more people that can help and support, this would be very much appreciated, the petition is at http://you.38degrees.org.uk/p/truthaboutzane
The power of love is greater than the love of power and this will drive us to ensure the truth will win.
Justice for all, not just the few
fitting the final act of The Green Party conference to pass emergency motion backing @TruthAboutZane campaign. Also backed by @pcs_union and @fbunational. Both @jon_bartley & @natalieben have also backed. #gpconf – At College Green
Novichok emergency vehicles buried near village of 13,000
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs confirmed that some vehicles had been buried at Wingmoor Farm, about two miles from Bishops Cleeve, Gloucestershire. A spokesman said: “Following review by specialist teams, some of the vehicles involved in the response to the incident in March have been moved to a hazardous waste landfill site. Our priority is making sure that the identified sites are safe, so they can be returned to use and Wiltshire can get back to normal.
“There is absolutely no risk to the public of using hazardous waste landfill sites. These locations are fully sealed and highly regulated to ensure waste is disposed of safely. This is controlled by regulation, overseen by the Environment Agency, which specifically ensures that sites are not prone to flooding or other hazards.”
Tony Mackinnon, a member of Bishop’s Cleeve parish council, said: “I would have thought the risk to the public is vanishingly small.”
PRESS PAUSE: "This is controlled by regulation, overseen by the Environment Agency, which specifically ensures that sites are not prone to flooding or other hazards.” Mmmmmm! The EA who protected their own property next to Zane's Home and watched as the ‘historic landfill’ (unregulated and unsealed) flooded. Point here also proves even the safest of regulated sites pose a danger when flooded.
Zane died, Authorities lied

Please watch the 20 minute abstract from BBC The Secret Life of Landfill: A Rubbish History
The Home Secretary has said yesterday the couple exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in Amesbury were exposed in an area that hadn't been part of the clean-up following the Skripal's poisoning months before.
But Sajid Javid also said, "It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns, to be dumping grounds for poison."
Yet little Zane's death continues to be kicked into long grass when, The Nerve Agent Hydrogen Cyanide was detected in his home. The Environment Agency protected the property they own next door with gas proof membranes 4 years prior after commissioning reports which showed migrating gases that would ‘kill or cause serious injury’ to occupants, due to the close proximity of the abutting historic landfill site.
Zane should be graduating junior school today, which is another raw, and painful milestone denied him. So many lost moments, dreams, aspirations.
If you’ve lost a loved one, a milestone event such as leaving junior school trigger a new wave of grief.
Unfortunately, our culture teaches us we’re supposed to grieve quickly and move on with our lives. Zane’s parents have not only suffered the loss of their precious child, the paralysis of Zane’s father and the long drawn out fight for truth. For them, grieving hasn’t even started yet. Victim blaming, authorities protecting reputations over truth and the financial crippling from being denied legal aid 3 times, are all compounding factors.
Zane’s mum describes grief, as a sign of how much Zane was deeply loved. How Zane could not have been loved more and how every second without him is a moment lost.
Zane’s school included a memorial for Zane during the leavers assembly where in a beautiful and highly moving speech, one of his best friend read of Zane’s many achievements and how their love and friendship has no boundaries. Zane’s Eco Award was given out and the school has a beautiful eco garden dedicated to Zane called ‘Zane’s Garden’
The power of love is stronger than the love of power.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd went on record stating that the government respond to evidence not rumour in the case of the Russian's found unconscious. Like Zane's case, a toxic chemical weapon was detected, there have been two emergency cobra meetings and government scientists from Porton Down investigating the scene, yet why didn't the government do the right thing with little Zane? Why kick Zane's death into the long grass?
Here is an example of how supporters are helping. Today we received a copy of a letter sent to Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
Dear Ms Rudd
We await a response. We await a truthful investigation and we await the Truth About Zane. Little Zane deserves nothing less.
Without help like Barbara's we fight alone. Please let us know if you can do anything to help push forward truth and justice for Zane.
Legal Aid Agency refuse
3 times to grant family legal aid for inquest
