"I state an opinion and I resist bullying, that's not being disruptive. Scotland is a free country."

Email sent to Dr Jack Aitken, Director of the Senate Office, University of Glasgow:

"Re: Letter in response to my Stage 2 Complaint against Dr Hamish McLeod for his bullying headed letter 

Dear Mr Aitken

It's Hogmanay.  I decided to read your response to my Stage 2 complaint against Dr now Prof Hamish McLeod and I'm very unhappy with your labelling of me as "disruptive".  In fact you have called me this at least 4 times in your letter.  I find this intimidating and upsetting, as well as untrue.  I state an opinion and I resist bullying, that's not being disruptive.  Scotland is a free country. 

I will be considering taking my complaint to the Ombudsman.  Neither you nor Prof Jill Pell nor McLeod have met with me to talk over, to listen to, my concerns.  I'm a psychiatric abuse survivor and Mother of 3 sons who have also survived abusive, coercive psychiatric drug treatment for experiencing psychosis.  I deserve respect and to be heard.  My voice matters.

Please see attached my response on Wonky to your blog post about the new Quality Code for HE: 

I really don't appreciate being marginalised by highly paid academics for speaking out as an unwaged Caring Mother.  That's very unfair.

Regards, Chrys"
