Dear Walmart

The Lithium Chronicles

Dear Walmart,

We are writing in regard to your Razor Blade Suicide Scar Wound Latex Costume that some geniuses approved to mass sell for Halloween this year. It’s good, but it isn’t gold star good, and if you’re going do something right well you may as well do it up good.

So here’s the thing Walmart, we’re here to help you, because not only are we courteous that way, but we also happen to know a thing or two about suicide. You should probably write this down.

Clearly you are trying to make a buck off of one of the most devastating things that could ever befall a family, hell why stop there? You could pump an entire line out of this!

Time to fight the removal of children’s rights through the Children and Social Work Bill

rightsinreality

There are bad ideas. There are really bad ideas. And then there’s clauses 29-33 of the Children and Social Work Bill 2016.

This handful of clauses, if approved by Parliament, will allow the Secretary of State to exempt local authorities in England from the requirements of children’s social care legislation in the guise of ‘test[ing] different ways of working’.
