I realise everything here has slipped away but my life was destroyed by the council illegally witholding housing benefits I was entitled to in 2011, they illegally witheld them for 9 months, despite every attempt to get the situation resolved which includes visits to the local council offices, sending the proofs they requested, initiating a rapid re-sign for all benefits, filing 3 whole fresh benefits applications and numerous emails attempting to get due benefits paid all completely ignored by the council it resulted in my homelessness, now 6 months into that I received a letter which stated if I was to leave the property at any time the housing association could take possession of the property and change the locks and at that time someone had arrived and sat in a car outside the property all day every day which I could see from the window and clearly he was waiting for me to leave and take the property, I begged once more for the council to pay due benefits so I could attend jobseekers sessions however they did not and I was terrified to leave the house, not being able to attend jobseekers and having lost everything that mattered in my life and having attempted everything humanly possible to get due housing benefits paid I sank into a deep depression and cried all day every day for 3 months, barely existing only opening the door to 11pm food deliveries scared to do anything else.

3 months on I began attempting suicide repeatedly and in a variety of different forms I wont go into here, being unsuccessful in trying to find a painless death and months of attempts which undoubtedly caused lasting damage (I now get headaches I never had in my life and struggle with words a lot of the time which I should know) I attempted to avoid being evicted as it had taken too long and I’d expected to be thrown out on the streets to die long ago, of course it was far too late at that point and I was evicted the next day, after this I began complaints again and attempting desperately to get rehomed, the council ignored all attempts to start complaints and wouldn’t investigate and they wouldn’t accept responsibility or applications to be rehomed without a permanent address and not via email which was my only option being recently homeless with no permanent residence. I continued trying to get rehomed and complaints including 2 official complaints which were said to be fully completed however attempting to look up other organisations to investigate in 2014 the ICE required a “final response from the director general of operations” which I requested specifically from the council, they gave a “final response” from another party, the ICE wouldn’t accept it and investigate because the director general of operations didn’t give it, I requested this over again and the council completely ignored the request and created barriers to justice.

Desperate to get rehomed I involved mp’s who also didn’t assist in rehoming me or putting the situation right, the council just suggested means and methods which I tried and clearly didn’t result in me being rehomed and were never possible under the LHA rates they stated I would only be able to apply for, so were completely inappropriate suggestions, all the time tort law dictates they should have been returning me to situations as I had been in prior to their illegal witholding of benefits as soon as possible and compensating for the time and ways my life was different and everything I lost a law they completely ignore.

Frustrated I found another organisation the local government ombudsman (lgo) who again requested a final response which again the council did not provide despite requesting and the one they had given was deemed not to be a final response, I tried everything possible and eventually they suggested I visit an undisclosed office to fill in a homeless application, I requested where this was and where to go on multiple occasions all of which were completely ignored by the council, not knowing where to go and desperate to get rehomed I required a permanent address so I could send in an application as they had deemed was all I needed to do, having avoided worcester because I hate the town and can’t stand being there and stuck out in the middle of nowhere and hadn’t got on with my mom well and also that she was looking after my sisters kids as she had adopted them and there wasn’t room for me to stay I had only gone there to stay on the sofa as a last resort, expecting to be there weeks at most as the application would be sent and expecting to be immediately offered emergency accommodation as I had been requesting constantly so that I could get on with my life while waiting to be rehomed.

The council lost application after application despite immediately sending a completed application and chasing this up after months as I had been patient allowing time for it to process, I had to send application after application and it took 5 postal applications and one visit just to get anything done and this took years which unreasonably delayed me getting on with my life, and despite proof of severe maladministration and chasing this and having to resort to sending via recorded delivery as the council denied receiving applications that they had received (and they even deny that still even with proof of delivery and statements from royal mail they still suggest it was never delivered and the lgo ignore the evidence showing delivery and use this to excuse the entire council maladministration and only offer £150 which is utterly unacceptable) When they did finally begin processing an application they waited 6 months from the august they state they recieved it, where another was sent in december, and another handed in by hand in march, they took til april to process it which is conveniently when the maths of my application placed me outside of the singular local housing criteria of having spent longer than 2 years out of the past 5 outside of birmingham which they had deliberately waited for so they could reduce the housing points 90% and completely avoid rehoming me giving me such a terrible score I would never get rehomed and completely ignored all other criteria where I had still local area connections which were valid, but the council and the LGO still don’t compensate for these delays to rehoming me or apply tort where I still wasn’t in circumstances remotely as I had been prior to their illegal witholding of benefits, and how I was in my personal version of hell and had avoided being out there entirely and only went there as a last resort as nothing else was working to get rehomed, and this clearly wasn’t working either and left me feeling hopeless and suicidal much of the time too.

Eventually in april 2016 they rehomed me, but having no money I had no means to get anything to cook or store food or a bed and the gas was leaking so I could have no hot water and it took several months to resolve this, so I still suffered to a lesser extent at that point, but still my suffering for that entire period must be compensated and the government cannot be allowed to make savings as they are doing for austerity through such illegal means and for me to not get compensated for all of that suffering when at any time they could have provided emergency accommodation which was requested repeatedly and ignored and this would have allowed me to get on with my life and end my suffering even if it took longer to get rehomed, but they did not and I suffered this entire period and I’m not compensated for this, and this is completely unfair.

On top of this despite the council being shown to be at blame and that they caused me to fall into a depression that lead to my not being able to attend jobseekers the council are stealing £1,800 in rent arrears from the suggested compensation to cover the outstanding rent costs, and not paying benefits for the time I would have been able to claim benefits and continued to do so for the entire period to being rehomed which I would have done had they never illegally witheld benefits and created these circumstances in the first place.

This has entirely taken over my life and it eats away at me, I already suffered with manic depression but this haunts me constantly and I feel hopeless and like my life has entirely been destroyed, I need some legal help to get the compensation I deserve for all of those years I lost and I would rather have back and be able to live, and all the opportunities I’ve lost out as a result and the way those deeply hurt me and rip out part of my soul and heart. I need my voice to be heard and this injustice cannot be allowed to go unpunished, the government must face up to what it has done.

If you can share this it would be very appreciated and if you are a lawyer who can help me get some justice please get in touch.
There are obviously Many video’s across time on this subject with updates, along with some posts on this site on the matter.

To name and shame:
Cartwright king do judicial reviews but won’t even look at the case as I mentioned the council and tort (Did respond after twitter suggesting some other lawyers who haven’t responded)
Irwin Mitchell wont cover the case as they claim they don’t cover that area of law despite the fact that they were involved in a previous class action lawsuit revolving around benefits against the council and they should at least look at the case as it would be in their wheelhouse
www.richardbuxton.co.uk Claim they don’t work in this area of law
www.hja.net Claim they don’t work in benefits cases and I need a specialist in benefits.
mcgrath.co.uk Claim they don’t specialise in this area of law despite appearing on pages suggesting them for this area of law
jrblegal.co.uk Says he is retiring and doesn’t cover this area of law
tuckerssolicitors.com State they only work in criminal law not civil even though they were on a page of results for civil benefits judicial review lawyers in the uk.
kingsleynapley.co.uk Don’t undertake judicial reviews on legal aid (but maybe they do if I had the funds? Which I definitely lack)
dpglaw.co.uk say they are unable to help and I should contact shelter.
leighday.co.uk says to look on http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ where every lawyer on that list has some excuse not to take on the case.
bindmans.com “I have discussed your enquiry with the solicitors in the department and I am sorry, but we do not have the capacity to take on your case. We often face more demands for help than we can meet, and, as you will appreciate, we can only take on cases if we have the capacity to do so” So basically they could but they’re too busy, and then they suggest a number of lawyers listed above who claim outright they don’t cover this area of law, how horrible.
hickmanandrose.co.uk State it doesn’t fall within their area of law
simpsonmillar.co.uk State they don’t cover benefits cases, despite being on the page again and many of these other lawyers recommending them.
genesislaw.co.uk State it’s outside their area of competence.
And a variety of smaller lawyers and other lawfirms who have not responded to emails. No lawyer in the UK seems capable of doing this and the government gets away with this injustice.
hcbgroup.com Firmly don’t undertake legal aided work (but again perhaps do work in this area of law but won’t do it on legal aid)
hinesolicitors.com Claim that this is a housing related case and they don’t specialise in housing law. Seperately state they only offer legal aid for benefit fraud.
anthonycollins.com State they don’t operate in this area of law
centralenglandlc.org.uk State how they only work with welfare benefits and wont do this because there are housing issues involved despite this being a welfare benefits case, these really sound like they should take on the case but just look for excuses not to.
Essentially all of these lawyers http://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/search/results?UmbrellaLegalIssue=LIUSWB&Location=birmingham&Pro=False none of them taking on this case, all contacted.

The general election 2017 is coming up and with two clearly different parties you should go vote, there are the conservatives who thrive off buzzwords and slagging off their opponent with slander campaigns, hot air and meaningless agenda’s that never get fulfilled with the past conservative promises constantly getting broken, a leader who lies and does everything to avoid actually answering any question set to her straight to such a degree that she doesn’t want to take part in debates, and on the other hand you have labour with a strong manifesto which is good for the country and young people the same and which will boost the economy by not only providing a better brexit for the entire nation rather than just the rich few but also an entire campaign which will improve the lives and wellbeing of the majority of the country as a whole, not only through increased wages to a £10 living wage, but also in a variety of other ways which I won’t list here as you can read manifesto’s for yourself to make up your own mind

I will however point out that the only opposition is labour and if you aren’t going to predominantly vote for labour you could be handing the conservatives a victory as nobody else stands a chance of running the country, however there are instances where it would be smarter to deny conservatives a seat in constituencies where labour does not stand a chance.

If you check http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/politics/constituencies your local constituency in the latest local election you will have a realistic impression of what voters in your area are likely to vote in the coming election, from this you can judge if labour are second or close to the same number of votes in your constituency then vote primarily for them so that the conservatives can be removed from power, if labour however have next to no votes and another party stands the best chance of defeating the conservatives in a seat then you should vote for whoever has the most votes and the best chance of denying the conservatives a seat in that area and thus take away the council from them and defeat their majority.

Only labour can stand a chance of holding parliament so increasing their seats at the same time as decreasing conservatives would be the primary priority, otherwise you could end up with a coalition of chaos with the conservatives and lib dems once again blaming each other for their lack of progress with entirely unmatching agenda’s, however if you vote smart so that labour can hold a majority and win parliament with a manifesto which is ideal for the majority of the country then we stand a chance of getting a brexit which works for everyone and a country that no longer targets the unfortunate and disabled.

So be sure to do a little research in your area and maximize the chances of a labour success on election day, otherwise you will only have yourself to blame when theresa may fails to live up to her promises once again and austerity continues to reduce services and the wellbeing of the country all in the name of paying off a deficit that they never come close to putting a dent into at the cost of those who aren’t to blame for this situation, driving us to become one of the most at risk of poverty countries in europe.



The world ends on july 11th 2012 in the early hours.. or at least I wish it would, as for me thats the day I am officially evicted because of this stupid government screwup where they froze my housing benefits as I couldn’t provide 5 wageslips for working one weekend I was given permission to sign off and work, because it only provided 1 wage slip. There is no miraculous savour for me, no life changing event, just someone slipping away to nothing unnoticed and uncared about. I talk a lot of things in the episode but lets face it I have no energy to fight anymore, a whole week has drifted by where IVe had no energy to do anything, Ive just sat and moped and lost time doing nothing, I dont have the energy to make plans, I just want to die to be honest as it would be over and no more shit to deal with. What good to I have remotely in life anyway, especially after losing my home and everything and everyone I care about.

I wrote to the queen who couldn’t do anything as you’ve seen in another video and number 10 couldn’t even care enough to even give a reply, news organisations want paper trails I don’t keep track of and half of which are between the council and my housing association anyway so I don’t have access to these. I just want to keep my home, but all I get is further depression and less hope. I shouldn’t let new people into my life really, it was a mistake getting close to someone and caring when Im in no state to really socialise on any level.

Ill try to do more video’s before eviction but no promises due to demotivation and lack of energy.



Ranting about the government and clarifying how the jobseekers system works at the request of a friend, stating what you have to do in order to maintain the jobseekers each week and how fragile the payments are and how easily they will cancel them, I also note how the government are incentivising councils to remove people from jobseekers by any means possible, and a side note about the euro and the eurozone along with how David Cameron left his eight year old child in a pub while he drove all the way home before realising. Look at what safe and caring hands we trust our society in

Okay so its been a while since I wrote something, a few things I was going to write about have passed like the discovery that there is a black hole at the center of the universe, well of course there is everything is circling a big black mass at the center like water circling a plughole, I think that was a pretty obvious thing, maybe origonally there was a supermassive sun which exploded and created the hole in the center who is to know, but it certainly makes the “dark matter” theory some people had pointless as the massive weight of such a large black hole makes thier dark matter mean that the weight of the universe wouldnt be stable, as Ive always thought if you have to invent something you cant prove just to make something fit youve missed something, and they missed out the weight of black holes and the mass and gravitational effects they produce.

Okay now onto the title issue, of the credit crunch and how it is a self defeating circle, as people have less funds to spend there is less need for people to work so people end up losing shifts so they have even less disposeable income which means there is even less money being spent on the economy reducing the need for workers further.  The government try to bail out failing industries but are just throwing money into nothing as it would be far better to let a failing business fail and focus on saving those which are copeing and providing support for those without work as a result.  It also appears that as a result many people are buying the “value products” but as they do it means that most shops sell out of these products, and even tv shows encourage the migration to buy lower value products not realising that by everyone doing so those that have had to survive on these all along are finding that there is no longer the option to buy these as the supermarkets run out and dont restock them very often.

On another matter related, the euro exchange rate is 1.05921 according to www.x-rates.com however when I went into the post office to exchange some euros to pounds they charged me the rate of 1.1373 which is stealing rather a lot to be fair considering they are supposed to be commision free exchanges.  I would sooner pay some commission and know what Im paying rather than sneakily be taken advantage of with a rate much higher than the actual exchange rate.

I also think it was funny how dispatches were trying to make out that the supermarkets should take a hit on thier profits of a few pence on the value products and make better quality products, the chances of that happenning very slim, but of course the general public are going to say yes they should when asked, if you went around asking the supermarkets theyre all going to say no…

Finally that flora buttery advert, gary rhodes travels the nation asking people which margerine product they prefer flora buttery or lurpack spreadable (read the smallprint) by a majority of 6 people out of 200 they prefer flora buttery, and if they had prefered lurpack no doubt the advert would have been a lurpack advert, confirming that of course the public thought what the creators of the spread thought, that the nation preferred thier product, because it was deeply bias, one of thier products or the other.  And you could hardly say a 3% majority a landslide win.

What is with humanities desire to live forever.. its a common theme, people desiring to live forever, parly why religions use that to convert people.. the promise of eternal life after death.. Am I alone in the thought that living forever would be horrible, I wouldnt want to exist forever in any way shape or form, what happens when youve done everything and seen everything there is to be seen you simly exist and waste space… Id rather live a defined life with an end. Apart from that though humanity also tries to eek out every second of life it possibly can, old people that are dying of old age go to hospitol to take medication etc for a few hours extra of life stuck in a hospital trying to get extra life.. what is the point.. if you had died you wouldnt be in hospital waiting to die trying to get extra life.. What do you do for society anyway other than drain all resources, youre expensive for hospitals, you take money from young peoples wages for doing nothing, and use up resources, I know Id rather die than extend life small ammounts at an expensive cost to the world. Really think about it dont just dismiss it off hand… consider a 90 year old goes in for a transplant.. in a few years that person is just going to die anyway, that would have been an expensive waste, and also that transplant couldve gone to a younger person who needs it more and will live life more and benefit to society more.. Im not saying old people cant pay to extend thier lives if they so wish just it shouldnt be on the government.. we have a screwwed up system where old people are extended small ammounts at great expense when all the funds used there could easily be put to better use elsewhere like giving a good education to everyone.. the silly thing is our “pooled” taxes includes all of the uk, england scotland wales etc.. X ammount is given to scotland (greater proportion than thier population) so essentially we pay for scotland, but they can do things right better healthcare, free education for all who want it etc.

With elections too, you can only vote the 3 main parties into a ruling government, not any smaller party, wheres the democracy there? Its like voting for the rock or the hard place… not exactly choice.

Back to the main issue.. humans dont think of the consequences of eternal life, what if you get to live forever.. you still want to get together have kids… they too will live forever then right… we already have an overpopulation issue as it is, where do we go if everyone lives forever and gets together and has 2.4children.. we will take over this planet faster than a bacteria and suck up all resources before we die off from starvation. All other creatures have a natural balance, they know when thier times up and die, we medicate to extend which I beleive is the main cause, if old people died when they were supposed to believe me this overpopulation issue wouldnt be an issue, no free medication for retired people, resources can then be better used elsewhere and we can have a better society, prices would drop for everything, and life would be more liveable for most people.

I know this is highly contraversial, but believe me it makes sense, at the same time Id give people the right to keep working as long as theyre fit and healthy to do so, heck theres a whole lot that would have to be done like stopping stupid opening hours of 9-5 so most of the day theres nothing to do but sit at home and be brainwashed by tv or down the pub, just opening shops so more people can go shopping after work etc would free up loads of work hours available for unemployed people as more staff would be required, and dont even get me started on sunday… anyway theyre all issues for another day, I think this rants gone on long enough.
