Waiting for an internal review by Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission of their handling of this request.

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
DEAR NIHRC

I would be grateful please for a copy of any advice that the Commission may have given NICS on the legality of long term Note and File Only policies long imposed on targeted civil servants who later fall ill as a result.

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
Hi, We' re three months overdue here with this response.

I don't want to be critical, just constructive.

Is there anything we can do, perhaps jointly, to speed the revocation of Note and File Only Orders up?

Good Luck, and enjoy your Christmas anyway.
Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
Hi, just to keep you in the picture, we’ll maybe get the British Irish Council involved, maybe the BBC too, to speed things up.

People everywhere fundamentally need to feel that they are being listened to, need to have feelings of self-esteem and self-worth. That is their birth-right, the basis of all psychiatry, and nobody, absolutely nobody has the right to take it away from them. Ministers, Accounting Officers, Ombudspersons and Governments included. That, very much, has to be said. Understood too, with the greatest of respect to all involved.
People matter.

We really can’t have NICS and NIO endlessly telling people they are Junk, not worth listening to. If we don’t do something to put a stop to official traducement and Noting and Filing of people, the NHS will just implode.

Please get back to me when you can.It would be great to have your view in writing and on headed paper, if that's possible. It avoids any confusion and broadcasters, for obvious reasons, do like to have paper copies.

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
Hi. Ulster Note and File Only policies are inevitably having effects far outside the province. Outsourcing HR contractors like Capita are listed international companies and there are fears that even suspected association with policies like traditional Ulster Noting and Filing may be affecting the viability of the entire business model. Any clarity the Commission could bring regarding the long term future of Noting and Filing in the province would be greatly appreciated by a lot of people.

Good Luck.

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
Hey, we’ll soon be at this seven months.

Don’t worry, some people have been fighting Ulster Note and File Only Orders for twenty years and more. Nobody who has tried to have such Orders overturned pretends that the task is easy.

Rest assured, nobody judges the Commission if it has no luck either.

The thing of course is that nowadays, with quoted Human Resource Outsourcers like Capita involved, major pension funds etc are inevitably, increasingly, involved. There are increasingly all kinds of humanitarian, ethical and liability issues that have to be sorted out, if the entire UK Outsourcing sector is to be saved from collapse. Capita itself, despite a recent small, maybe technical, bounce are still off almost 50% in a month. That kind of rot can be hard to stop, when the momentum builds. Markets have their own way of dealing with this kind of thing and maybe it’s best not to interfere, maybe pointless too. I just don’t know. Time will tell.

Just do what you can, if you feel it wise, when you feel able, and do keep in touch.

Good Luck. However things turn out, I wish you well.The Commission’s heart is in the right place.

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN

Dear Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission,
Hey, I don’t want to sound alarmist but I think we all realise that if a decision is taken to allow Capita to fail because of any perceived unwillingness to address Human Rights, inequality, labour relations, or bullying problems in NICS, then an awful lot of questions, maybe questions like the above are going to be asked.

No one judges, but please do what you can,

Yours faithfully,

AIDAN QUINN
