                    “NO PHOTO AVAILABLE”

The above caption is something Cornwall Homechoice applicants will frequently come across when viewing properties to bid on every week.

According to Cornwall Council it is the Landlord who is responsible for entering this caption into the advertisement.

Likely reasons for using this caption are as follows :

(a) That the Landlord, usually a Charity, is too rich and arrogant to be bothered.

(b) That no picture is an improvement on the actual property.

(c) That the would be tenant is so desperate for a home – WTF.

(d) That the Council and landlord are knowingly up to no good. (Common).

(e) That Staff are incapable of photographing a property – only selfies.

(f) What is a digital image.

(I will add others in time)

The thing about Oonah Lacey is neither the 4 corrupt Police Officers or the IPCC liked me referring to her as a “Fraudster” and a “Rogue”.

Had the 4 corrupt Police Officers and the IPCC properly investigated my allegations they would have come to the same conclusion that Oonah Lacey was indeed a “Fraudster” and a “Rogue”.

The reason why the 4 corrupt Police Officers and the IPCC did not properly investigate my allegations was to protect the Organisations with links to Government who payed Oonah Lacey to be a “Fraudster” and a “Rogue”.

THE 3 BEDROOM GUINNESS HERMITAGE HOUSE DISCOVERED IN A BLOCK OF FLATS. (PART 2)

This Cornwall Homechoice Property Ref : 15056 was advertised between 17 to 21 May 2014, and stated the picture was a “Front view” of a “3 Bed House In St Austell”.

In reality it shows a Block of Flats owned by Guinness Hermitage at Barkers Green in St Austell.

The same “3 Bed House in St Austell” was re-advertised between 14 to 18 June 2014, as Cornwall Homechoice Property Ref : 15404, and again showed the same “Front view” of the Block of Flats owned by Guinness Hermitage.

Guinness Hermitage is another one of Cornwall Council’s housing partners, like Sanctuary Housing, who can wilfully mislead Homechoice applicants with Council approval. This because the original advertisement was reported to both Cornwall Council and Guinness Hermitage as being “misleading”.

The only differences between the 2 advertisements is Ref : 15056 only mentioned “Suitable for persons with a disability”.

Ref : 15404 stated “Full wheelchair standard, through floor vertical lift, Wet floor shower (wet room), Wheel chair access inside, Wheelchair access outside. “Preference given to wheelchair users needing adaptions” and “Through floor lift”. Also “Energy Rating : B ( 81 – 91 )”.

So why can’t this property be a different “3 Bed House In St Austell” owned by Guinness Hermitage ?

Firstly the use of the same wilfully misleading picture and secondly because the Council’s “Recent Lets” information on it’s website shows no outcome for property Ref : 15056.

So if Property Ref : 15056 was withdrawn – why was it withdrawn ?

Most probably because it wilfully downplayed any “Preference” to someone with a disability to make the property more attractive and winnable for a couple with 1 or 2 children, without blatantly discriminating against the disabled.

Discrimination is nothing new to Cornwall Council and on issues relating to it not knowing Homechoice Properties had Special Adaptions for the disabled, or that it was not responsible for the continued use of Misleading Homechoice Advertisement Pictures and descriptions, or that it was not responsible for it’s ‘Website (CBL) Recent Lets information being incomplete and not fit for purpose in helping Homechoice applicants make the right decisions, the Council’s only response over the years has been to continue blaming it’s Housing Partners.

The truth is the latter has more to do with Cornwall Council’s wilfull blindness to meet it’s responsibilities unlawfully, and with the help of it’s Housing Partners in crime.

                                THE CORRUPTION OF CORNWALL HOMECHOICE

Logged into my Cornwall Homechoice Account on Saturday 14 June 2014 and I was told there were 19 (CBL) properties I was elegible to bid on. Clicked on the link to view them and was passed to a blank page. Tried again a number of times over the weekend but still no properties.

Sent the Council a series of numbered Tweets over the weekend to find out why and after first checking the Council’s Website for any announcements.

Lodged a formal complaint on the Council’s Website Monday morning and Tweeted the Council to ensure I receive a Ref No. as soon as possible. The Council did respond to my Tweets but did not answer why there was no Homechoice properties and also failed to give me a complaint Ref No.. (+)

Sent Tweets to @andychariots, the Council’s CEO Andrew Kerr, @stephen_gilbert, our MP, @LGOmbudsman, the Local Government Ombudsman, over the day but received no reply or explanation. Tweeted a request to all Cornwall Councillors in the evening but again received not a single reply. Shame on you all.

One would think a service provided for the public would be accountable and would be transparent. That the likes of CEO Andrew Kerr and Stephen Gilbert MP would be accountable to a local resident, tax payer and constituent. That Homechoice applicants should be entitled to expect an explanation or a public announcement.

(+) (The 1st Stage of the Complaints procedure gives the Council 10 days to respond. The Council is wilfully delaying a complaint Ref No. to unfairly extend the amount of time it has to stop it becoming an official complaint. When I lodged the Complaint I received an acknowledgement from the Council which is when I will date the Complaint from. Internal delays should not become an added insult to injury so to speak).

Footnote : If any reader of this would like to key in ‘Cornwall Homechoice’ click on the Link ‘Property Search’ and click on the Link ‘Social Housing’ and let me know what you found I would be extremely grateful. This must be done before the end of  Wednesday 18 June 2014, thanks.

Mr Warner advised that “Homechoice Policy is set by Members of Cornwall Council and it was his job to implement it”.

“Policy 23.7 First Reviews – First reviews are re-assessed by the Welfare Panel that made the original assessment”.

Perhaps Cornwall Council, or the LGO, would like to explain why the Council was allowed to disregard Policy 23.7 at a First Review on 27 November 2012 ?

Jon Warner is the Cornwall Homechoice Manager – West/Central teams, Cornwall Housing Ltd.

Perhaps Warner’s partner in crime Rachel Lytham, Housing Needs Officer, Cornwall Housing Ltd, would like to explain why she commented on the First Review Form “Need information from Mental Health professional re Mrs McL condition”, when a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) attended the “original  assessment” but neglected to intervene and failed to attend the First Review ?

My wife, the Mrs McLaughlin referred to, died within a year of the First Review aged 54, and died with Low Welfare Priority.

CORNWALL HOMECHOICE WELFARE PRIORITY ASSESSMENTS.

                     “FIRST REVIEW”

Question : When is a “First Review” Welfare Priority Assessment not a “First Review” Assessment ?

Answer : When the Local Government Ombudsman decides to engage in wilfull blindness to protect Cornwall Council before the public interest.

(A “First Review” is Cornwall Council Policy and the Council broke this Policy in our case. Thanks to a corrupt Ombudsman we may never know how many other members of the public are also being wilfully abused by the Council).

Quotation : the Local Government Ombudsman “Operate the most perverse and publicly criticised system of administrative justice in the world”, unquote.

Well I for one would certainly feel “safer” if the D&CP or the IPCC would finally explain to me why an Investigating Officer stated the written complaint against me was dated 5 April 2012, when internal records prove I was being investigated weeks before then. A written complaint which led to my arrest, detention and intimidation by 3 Officers who wilfully colluded to break the law.
