RIP Simon Brooks

Simon BrooksSimon-Brooks-and-his-mother-Julie-BrooksY-Pant-SchoolSocial workers filthy legacy

Tragic schoolboy, Simon Brooks, took his own life earlier this year due to systematic bullying at school.

Simon was a kind-hearted lad who tried his hardest to fight back against the bullies and even forgave them on his death bed.

His mother Julie Brooks spoke this week about her battle with his school to stop the bullying.

She was predictably fobbed off with excuses and when Simon’s abuse became so bad she would allow him to stay off from school to protect him.

Of course in any decent society, a parent should have the right to do whatever it takes to care for their children, but as we’ve recently seen in the case of Ashya King, parental rights count for nothing in North-Korea inspired Britain.

Apparently, Simon Brooks hadn’t met the dictatorial 85% attendance required by our prison-like state schools so what did his head teacher do next?

Referred him to Social Services.

The vile, child-snatching SS, are pervading every corner of children’s lives in filthy Britain and with their corrupted chums in the police and judiciary, they will lie and perjure their way through the system to snatch children and criminalise parents- all for a financial bonus.

These sociopathic jobsworths are specifically chosen for their lack of empathy and for displaying psychopathic traits.

They feel no guilt when they steal a child from loving parents even if they know full well that the child may end up in the abusive care system.

Child-snatching is evidently spreading to schools who now feel empowered by the numerous rules and regulations that put parents and children’s rights and feelings at the very bottom of the pile.

For all of you out there who may naively believe that this country is not hell-bent on destroying families, whatever the cost, please take a moment to read Simon Brook’s tragic story:

‘Mum, I love you to the moon and back”

‘ Bullied lad’s last message to mother before overdose suicide’

On March 28 Simon Brooks took his own life after years of bullying at school, dying in hospital four days later

Reading the words she and her son had said to each other so many times, she felt her heart had been ripped in two, reports the Sunday People.

One line jumped out at Julie Brooks as she opened the letter from Simon: “I love you to the moon and back.”

The lines were from the popular children’s book Guess How Much I Love You, among Simon’s ­favourites since he was tiny.

But this was not a bedtime story. It was Simon’s suicide note written just before he took an overdose.

In the heartbreaking message, the 15-year-old apologised to his mum and told her he loved her.

He said: “We’ve always told each other ‘I can’t live without you’ but mum, I can’t cope any more.”

On March 28 Simon took his own life after years of bullying at school. He died in hospital four days later.

Five months on, the grief is still too raw to bear.

“He was the kind of person who brought sunshine into a room,” says Julie, as she pauses and swallows hard.

“Without him there is a gaping hole in my life.

“Every day I think maybe the pain will get better but every day I wake up and it’s still agony.”

Days before Simon’s death, in Tonyrefail, South Wales, he and his best friend had a bust-up over a girl.

Julie recalls watching the friend climb up on to the hospital bed as Simon lay in a coma and lie down next to him, hugging him and sobbing.

“He kept saying ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry’,” recalls Julie.

“In the end I pulled him away and hugged him myself. I told him, ‘This is NOT your fault’.”

Simon had been picked on since he started primary school.

To begin with, Julie would report incidents and ask for kids involved to be disciplined. But Simon begged her to stop.

The punishments made the bullies twice as bad.

“He wasn’t what you ­imagine a bullying victim to be,” says Julie.

“But over the years the taunts, the threats, the kicks, the punches he faced every school day built up.

“They chipped away until he couldn’t take it any more.”

Small for his age, red-haired and precocious, Julie says he was picked on because he was different.

“He refused to keep quiet and fit in,” she adds.

Never bowing to the bullies, he battled through every day, despite the aggression and humiliation.

And in his final words to family and friends on his phone, he ­refused to name names and asked them to forgive those who’d hurt him.

The optimistic tone shows exactly why Julie refers to Simon as her “sunshine child”.

“All he wanted in the world was peace and happiness,” she says.

“He never wanted conflict.”

Julie knows the children she believes drove her youngest son to suicide and has not hesitated in passing names on to the school.

“I can forgive the boys who bullied him but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t still be punished,” she says.

“In my view bullies should be excluded. There has to be a stricter way of dealing with them.

“A kick or a punch in the corridor should result in suspension.

 “After a second incident the parents should be called in. A third or fourth should lead to exclusion.”

And she remains furious that more could not be done to combat the problem within the school.

“Time and again I went to school and they kept saying they were dealing with it,” she says.

“They say they have a zero-tolerance policy but all I saw was kids being told off or sent home and then returning and starting again.

“Simon did everything they tell you to do when you’re being bullied.

“He stood up for himself, wouldn’t be cowed. But the bullies didn’t respond to his strength, just found more ways to torment him.”

Simon would invent ways of avoiding school putting hot-water bottles in his bed to feign a fever or make himself vomit.

Julie let him stay home but when his attendance dipped under 85 per cent, social services arrived.

“Then I had to say no to him,” says Julie.

“It was heart-breaking. I told him I would get prosecuted if he didn’t go. To him he’d lost his last safe haven.”

Julie even looked into home-schooling.

 In the weeks leading up to his death she was talking to tutoring agencies but Simon didn’t want to lose his art and tech lessons.

Now she says she wishes she’d had the courage to pull him out of school.

“I didn’t have the guts to go up against social services. It’s my one regret,” she says.

For a moment she gazes at a picture of Simon, grinning with his arms around her.

He was my youngest son but more than that, he was my friend,” she says. “We were so alike and so close.”

Julie’s torment is clear as she remembers the boy who used to ride down the hill of their cul-de-sac on his bike, arms out, shouting with joy.

“It sounds strange,” she says, “but he was afraid of nothing.”

For four weeks after Simon’s death, Julie could barely leave his bedroom.

She slept in his bed every night and refused to get rid of his belongings.

“I wouldn’t wash his clothes or even sheets,” she says. “I was numb. All I wanted was to be with Simon.”

Finally she realised she needed to move on and invited his close friends to each take something to ­remind them of Simon.

The room has now been repainted and Simon’s brother Michael, 21, has moved in.

He and sister Stephanie, 25, had been living in Pontypridd, but have now moved back home.

The grief put such a strain on Julie’s marriage of 24 years to Simon’s dad David that they have agreed to split up.

Julie has now set up the Simon Brooks Sunshine Foundation and aims to raise money to make a film on Simon’s life to show in schools.

She says: “If I could give one piece of advice to parents whose children are being bullied it’s to never, ever let the authorities tell you what’s best for your child.

“You need to do whatever you think is right to remove them from that situation, no matter what the school says.”

RIP Simon Brooks.

  2. Weeping reading this. All schools must have anti-bullying policies but in my experience many do not; they are always ‘being printed’ or ‘being updated’. I hope the head of this school is hanging his or her head in shame, knowing this could have been stopped and this boy’s life could have been saved. Bottom line is, headteachers and their senior management teams often don’t even know the government guidance on bullying and exclusions, let alone practise it. But oh my, they are quick to refer to SS if it means their attendance figures will be criticised. Sickening. Rest in peace young Simon, I hope you are in a better place and I pray that your parents and siblings will not let their grief overshadow their memories of their beautiful son and brother.

    • You don’t know the family circumstances or what input there has been from the father. Have some consideration for how the man must be feeling.

  3. The truth is the bullies are in control of all of us…this story is typical of how far down the tubes we are going. We have to take control of our children back, before they get to the Nazi SS and Goose stepping stage. This is so sad and will keep happening until we stand up and say ENOUGH !! RIP Simon.

  4. When my son first went to school he had to travel by bus. An older kid started to pick on him. He told me. I found out who the boy’s father was and went round one night and ‘sorted the father out’. Strangely my son was never bullied again by anyone.
    In this mad society it seems to me that if you inform the police they will arrest you. If you inform social services that will kidnap your child. So you can either be a defeatist or a defeater.
    Direct action is best but do not inform anyone of your intentions.

    • Did something similar for my daughter many years ago and have felt vaguely guilty about it ever since (I let the father experience what my daughter was going through; it seemed to be the most direct way of delivering the message). But after having read this – and I must have something in my eyes, they keep filling up – the guilt has assuaged somewhat, That poor wee fella, at least he is at peace now … his mother has my utmost sympathy for whatever that may be worth.

  5. Nasty old Common Purpose teachers who get involved in the Agenda 21 ….agenda. Yep, the parents are minus a SON and busted and breaking up……but hey! Isn’t that the whole fucking plan?

  6. What a heartbreaking story.

    There are many, many home-educating families in this country who could be telling the same story if they hadn’t managed to take the plunge and remove their children from the school system, ours included. The @rse-covering response of so many schools when bullying is reported is beyond shameful. No wonder kids end up feeling so utterly powerless – effectively they are. Children in these situations are expected to cope with things that no adult would want to put up with, and even an adult being victimised at work has more options for dealing with the situation than a child does. Behaviour policies and anti-bullying policies are generally not worth the paper they’re written on. Schools only have them because they are required to.

  7. Since education sold out to Darwinism, the concept of survival of the fittest, adaptation and natural selection has stood as a cruel, cold contradiction to supernatural election and the sanctity of the human spirit, created in the image of God. The bullying itself is simply part of the parcel of plans to not only break down the family, but to breed generations of evil, greedy, nasty little monsters who will follow the dictates of their flesh and think that their natural “superiority” grants them license to do so – it encourages the development of psychopaths.. It is a shame that the family fell foul of the failure of their own foundation and have separated, when arguably they most need to unite and present a common front. And yes, it is so appropros that the acrid acronym for Social Services is SS.

  8. One thing puzzles me is the wide variation between councils even with the same socio economic stats and the level of children taking into care. Newcastle upon Tyne and South Tyneside vary so much that one is either lax in its duties, or the other is over zealous in its duties. Be interesting to do a comparative study on these Childrens Social Services.

  9. The program is to get us to accept that our children don’t belong to us, but rather to the “community” (the State, in other words). If we let those bastards get away with this, they will have an unlimited supply of children to be passed around between members of their various sick cliques; our children will become no more than a common currency which the paedo-elites can grant and gain favors through.
    When they come for our children, as they will if they are not stopped, there really isn’t anything more vile they can do to appease Satan. If we tolerate it, then we are totally finished as a race and culture. And we shall have deserved our fate, too. I believe we’ll make a stand before it gets that bad, but it will be very late indeed in coming; about as overdue as it gets, I’m sorry to say.

  10. Britain is waking up to the experiment that has become a daily assault on it’s fabric. We have fought wars for this scum to further their assault on the west. They are truly a curse and a danger to humanity. Laughing at the Goy who have enabled the lifestyle’s they enjoy. The end is near and they need to enjoy the last days…We have woken up to the vile tribe who have broken the true human spirit time and again. They are finished. They will finally rot in HELL.

  11. My mother would have gone to school and if they didn’t listen she would have them over their desk until they did in-house grandparents could protect their children

  12. Two more things come out of this case as well:

    1) When I was bringing up my boys back in the 70’s and they told me they were being bullied at school I gave them what I think was sound advice i.e. I told them to take their time, pick their moment and punch the bully as hard as they could in face when he was least expecting it. I told them, if you do that they will never bully you again.

    2) There is also a thing amongst modern kids re bullying children with red hair – this is blatant anti-white racism and we know the stinking race that’s behind that don’t we????????
