STORIES BEHIND THE STATISTICS – WILL THERE EVER BE JUSTICE?

 

We are all very proud to finally launch the latest copy of TaintedBlood's book of personal stories.  You may recall that a few weeks ago Mark Ward ​and Joseph Peaty​ personally delivered the first copy to David Cameron at 10, Downing Street.

Since that copy was printed we have changed page 5 to reflect the fact that we wish to dedicate this book to the memory of Mike Dorricott​, in recognition of his dedication, his friendship and his incalculable contribution to our campaign.

THE BOOK CAN BE ACCESSED HERE:,

...AND ALSO AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST, WHERE YOU WILL FIND THREE LINKS – ONE FOR EACH BOOK – IN CASE YOU WOULD LIKE TO DOWNLOAD ALL OF THEM SO FAR.

We would like to thank every single one of those who have so bravely shared the stories and photographs in this book, and also all those who made the floral tributes which feature both on the cover and inside the book, and which have helped to made this edition particularly memorable.

Thanks must also go to Rosa, who has worked tirelessly on this project, and Richard for his amazing work on the photographs.

Due to space constraints it was not possible to include all the stories that you have shred so generously, so if you would like your story to be included in the next edition please let me know.

Also, if you have not yet shared your story and feel you would like to, we plan to continue with our ‘Looking Back’ series shortly.  If you have submitted a story that has not yet been posted, it would be really helpful if you could remind me to ensure I don’t miss anyone out!

PLEASE WOULD YOU ALL EITHER E-MAIL YOUR MP AND INCLUDE THIS LATEST BOOK AS AN ATTACHMENT, OR IF POSSIBLE PRINT IT OUT IN COLOUR AND SEND OR TAKE IT TO HIM/HER.  PLEASE REMIND THEM OF THE HUGE HUMAN COST OF THIS SCANDAL AND REINFORCE TO THEM THAT A FULL, FAIR SETTLEMENT IS CALLED FOR URGENTLY – NO MORE TWEAKS, NO MORE HALF-MEASURES.

Thank you.

Sue Threakall & Joseph Peaty
