Are these parents really in the wrong?
« on: August 31, 2014, 23:23:21 pm »

Ashya King's parents appear in a Spanish court in handcuffs after taking him abroad for specialist cancer treatment.

At first when this story broke I like probably many thought it was disgusting and the book should be thrown at them, but after a bit of thought I wondered what I would do if I were in their position, they presumably were acting in the best interests (in their minds) of their son, have they really done anything wrong here? Should they really have been so heavily pursued, arrested and now taken to court?

After all it's their son, not the NHS's, the Police or any governments....

In my view they were doing what they thought was in the best interests of their son, and as I understand it they have broken laws, so why were they led away in handcuffs.
And as for that numpty Assistant Chief Constable....just another case of incompetent policing in this country!
And why do we not have this proton beam treatment in this country anyway? Why do we have to shelve out £100,000 x 100 every year  to send out children abroad to have this treatment? I see it's planned to be available but not until 2018! No doubt down to Tory cuts....maybe we should start another Facebook challenge to pay for one!

The police should put the same amount of time and money into catching real criminals......trouble is they haven't got a clue. If this couple weren't white British there would be uproar about human rights and Lawyers would be queuing up to defend them.

Hmm, at least one of them doesn`t look white, not that it should matter.

To be fair to Plod, there were acting on information from the hospital, who said the kid was in danger. The Daily Mail was stoking things up with the Jehovah's Witness angle as well. So Plod are stuck between a rock & a hard place.

I would like to see some comments on here should an EU citizen pull the same move & bring the kids over to the UK for expensive treatment on the NHS not available in their country

i go along with you sparky, and on the itv's  "this morning"  they had granny king on the phone saying that they were told by the doctor,s they could'nt do anything more for him, so obviously his parent's had every right to do what they thought best and take him to get better treatment elsewhere, how the hell could that be called neglagence ? what the Mc Cans did was neglagent, terrible whatever happened to that little nipper being left unattended, it only take's a matter of minutes to be taken, they should be locked up instead of posing in front of the camara's putting on "the victim's", but where the king's situation is now, is typical spanish authorities by not letting them be at the hospital with their son, let's all hope whatever treatment he get's make's him better, and yer right decho the country should make it a priority to supply fund's for these life saving equipment, it's just been announced that they went to malaga to sell their property to fund the treatment, i think it's called "a proton beam", apparently in the chech republic, i wish them the best of look.

If it were my kid, I would do the same 100%.

This scum-bag on benefits got £4800 boob job on the NHS, then complained her benefits have been reduced (taxi for her kid to go to school) and now now has to get a bus.

Now shes selling tickets at £5000 each to watch her in childbirth and take pictures.

Well done The Old Bill, take parents away from a sick kid. I've never liked cops but I like them a lot less now.

Those Police would be better off sorting out those Paedophiles in Rotherham, and the idiots that work at the Labour run Rotherham Council.

I totally agree with you Woe..so many broken lives there.  :(

Being a doting Grandma though I do get a bit emotional reading about little Ashya and know I'd move heaven and earth to get my my grandchild the treatment he needed...and seeing appy's recent pics on fb I know he'd do excatly the same...well the same as all of us would do for our kids and grandkids.

The CPS have rtealised the police were wrong, and lifted the european Arrest Warrant and they're now out of prison, thank goodness.
