                            CATCH 22 TO STEVE DOUBLE MP

The following was a recent written attempt to explain to my MP why only a Public Inquiry can investigate the rigged Welfare Priority Assessments by Cornwall Council and the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, and why only a Public Inquiry can investigate the unlawful practice of ‘Ringfencing’ Homechoice properties by Cornwall Council and my corrupt landlord Sanctuary Housing.

“For the record : The Local Government Ombudsman could not properly investigate the rigged Welfare Priority Assessments by Cornwall Council because it also involved the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust which the LGO was unauthorized to investigate.

The Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman would not investigate the rigged Welfare Priority Assessments because the Trust had disowned it’s employee on the Welfare Panel thus corruptly removing any “NHS” involvement.

The LGO could not investigate the illegal practice of ‘ringfencing’ Homechoice properties and deception because it also involved Sanctuary Housing which the LGO was unauthorized to investigate.

Had the Housing Ombudsman been contacted the HO would not have been authorized to investigate Cornwall Council.

Apart from the aforementioned the LGO perversely turned a blind eye to evidence that was available because the LGO, and the PHSO for that matter, is no longer an “Independent” advocacy protecting the public from bad Government but is now protecting bad Government, to which you are a representative, from the public.”, unquote.

Unfortunately Mr Double MP is of the opinion he can do nothing to stop the continuing abuse of the mentally ill and the vulnerable by Cornwall Council and the NHS Trust, and can do nothing to stop Homechoice applicants being deceived and misled by the Council and Sanctuary Housing.

 (“It is you, not the Conservative Party who will be my boss; I will be accessible and accountable to you. I will always do what I believe is right and best for mid- Cornwall and put your interests above Party politics”. Steve Double, Wednesday, 4 March, 2015).

ASDA – TURNING DAYS INTO WEEKS

                             ASDA – TURNING DAYS INTO WEEKS

I had a home delivery just over a month ago and noticed the agreed amount of £32.48 had been taken out of my account on 21 September 2015. I then noticed a further 40p had been taken out of my account the following day.

I queried this unauthorized withdrawal from my account with ASDA on Twitter and although there was supposed to have been an email link on the grocery site according to their advice there wasn’t so I had to request an email link. The following link was provided by ASDA on Twitter on 28 September.

asda-stores.custhelp.com/app/ask/sessio…

On it I stated the following complaint and sent it to the ASDA customer Services Team :

According to my bank statement Asda removed 0.40 from my bank account on 22 September 2015 without my authorization. This following a home delivery on 19 September 2015. Order No : 56729628. Customer ID : ????????. I would appreciate an explanation. (ID was included)

In reply I received an email on 29 September from the ASDA Customer Service Team instructing me I would receive a reply within the next 4 working days.

It is now 21 October and I still have not yet received an explanation from the ASDA Customer Service Team in reply it’s promise to respond within 4 working days and I have received no help from ASDA on Twitter @AsdaServiceTeam despite repeated requests most days. More often the same ASDA Twitter representatives only ask me to repeat what they have already been told like it is a game or a laugh or something.

I was even told by them a colleague had left me a voicemail on 15 October but this turned out not to be the case.

So nearly a month has passed and I am still no wiser why ASDA took 40p more than I agreed to pay on 18 September 2015.

This is not about the 40p as I always tip the driver £1 anyway, this is about a company taking money out of my bank account without my authorization. A company which not only has failed to provide me with an explanation within 4 working days but has failed to provide me with an explanation within 4 weeks, and has wilfully wasted a lot of my time.

I will send a copy of this blog to the CEO of ASDA and I will request an explanation within 4 working days. A lot more than ASDA deserves given the above charade.

THE CHARITY MAFIA SANCTUARY HOUSING.

Blog posted 09 October 2015

             THE CHARITY MAFIA SANCTUARY HOUSING

My first contact with inner members of the Charity Mafia Sanctuary Housing was with Simon ‘Baby Face’ Clark who was one of David ‘The Godfather’ Bennett’s closest henchman and who referred to ‘The Godfather’ as “DJB”.

SIMON ‘BABY FACE’ CLARK

Despite his baby like and chubby appearance ‘Baby Face’ was a pretty unpleasant and ruthless character who would do anything to protect the family however perverse or criminal. It was ‘Baby Face’ who introduced me to Judge Rosemary ‘Creepy’ Crawley, an inner group member who had direct access to ‘The Godfather’.

DAVID ‘THE GODFATHER’ BENNETT

I recall ‘Baby Face’ once making me an offer I could not refuse. The offer being that I either take my 800+ day old complaint against the family to a Housing Ombudsman or he would close the complaint unresolved.

That as a result of me being unable to accept the offer because the complaint also involved TPAS, who the HO could not investigate, and who had unlawfully protected the family with a mediation SCAM, ‘Baby Face’ subsequently closed the 800 + day old complaint unresolved and against my wishes.

NOT WORTH THE PAPER IT WAS WRITTEN ON

That although ‘Baby Face’ later admitted the SCAM was a mistake, that I was therefore a victim of a crime, the SCAM remains unresolved to this day and I remain a victim.

Another member of the family who signed himself as “R” was Richard Keeley who joined the family in 2010, from a rival family. Richard ‘Dick Head’ Keeley ran the family’s operation in the South West of England and fitted in well with the family’s unlawful way of doing things and appreciated ‘The Godfather’s’ support and protection whenever he did wrong. It was ‘Dick Head’ who organised the mediation SCAM with TPAS which the Charity funded.

RICHARD ‘DICK HEAD’ KEELEY

The family’s operations in the South West included collusion with a corrupt Cornwall Council in illegally ringfencing properties for the Council and which involved deception. The family also engaged in fraud and excessive profiteering since 2009. This criminal partnership also included the covert creation of a toxic community which ended only after a young woman died. This despite ‘The Godfather’, ‘Baby Face’, ‘Creepy’ and ‘Dick Head’ being warned in writing every week for months that someone would die.

THE YOUNG WOMAN WHO DIED. RIP

‘Dick Head’s’ official title within the family was Regional Director but this was changed in March 2012 to Dick ‘Head of Operations – South West’ to protect him and the family following contact by the police. This being in response to a written complaint made against me by Oonah ‘Rotten Meat’ Lacey who had been earlier sacked by TPAS for alleged fraud.

A complaint which the police alleged was not received until April but which was being officially investigated by them mid March 2012.

A PROTECTION RACKET FOR LANDLORDS AND A SHEPHERDING SERVICE FOR TENANTS

A month later I was arrested by the police who attempted to set me up to protect ‘Rotten Meat’, ‘Dick Head’, the family, TPAS, and Cornwall Council.

Despite Devon & Cornwall Constabulary attempting to pervert the course of justice to protect the aforementioned and bury evidence against them, 2 Sergeants and 2 constables were later found to be at fault by a no less corrupt IPCC who applied willful blindness not to investigate more serious allegations and evidence.

Simon ‘Baby Face’ Clark was later promoted to Managing Director for his efforts.

Judge Rosemary ‘Creepy’ Crawley later stood down from the Board.

David ‘The Godfather’ Bennett was later awarded a CBE for his contributions to housing, and within weeks of the young woman dying.

Richard ‘Dick Head’ Keeley is still Head of Operations – South West in Exeter, and the family is still engaged in criminality in the form of ringfencing and deception for Cornwall Council and fraud for ‘The Godfather’.

Open Letter To Councillor John Pollard, Leader Of Cornwall Council.

         OPEN LETTER TO COUNCILLOR JOHN POLLARD, LEADER OF                                                                    CORNWALL COUNCIL.

Dear Councillor Pollard

Although we have never met or corresponded you will of course know about me, or rather you will know about the corrupt Council I allege you lead and represent.

For example you will recall Sanctuary Housing, one of the Council’s partner landlords, subjected myself and the tenants at Timber Close, St Austell, to fraud and deception in 2009, and which has continued to this day despite the Council being informed.

You will also recall the covert and criminal mediation Scam in 2010 upon myself in a St Austell cafe involving Sanctuary Housing, the UK’s largest social housing landlord, and TPAS who frequently advises Government.

You will also recall the year long harassment I was subjected to in 2011 when Sanctuary Housing and the Council were party to an unlawfully ringfenced Homechoice property to accommodate a young out of care individual and which involved Sanctuary Housing and the Council in willfuly and unlawfully deceiving Homechoice bidders and discriminating against the disabled.

You will also recall my unlawful arrest in 2012 when 2 Sergeants and 2 police constables with Devon & Cornwall Constabulary conspired to unlawfully have blogs removed from my website because they were damaging to the complainant, Sanctuary Housing, TPAS, and Cornwall Council.

You will also recall that although the IPCC ruled in my favour the IPCC also perverted the course of justice in deciding not to investigate more serious allegations and evidence in order to protect the aforementioned.

You will also recall the rigged Cornwall Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessments in 2012 which abused and discriminated against the mentally ill and vulnerable. One of the victims being my late wife who despite suffering long term mental disorder, which was deteriorating, was then denied the support and care she should have received because the NHS Trust and the Council were too pre-occupied protecting only each other and which has continued to this day in the form of denials and cover-ups.

You will also recall the toxic human waste dump covertly created by the Council and Sanctuary Housing as a direct consequence of the unlawful ringfencing of Homechoice properties, and which got out of control in 2014 when the police almost took over control of the flats complex at Timber Close, St Austell.

You will also recall the ‘Detoxification’ later that year by Sanctuary Housing and the Council because a young woman died in one of the flats despite multiple written warnings it would happen, and the further ‘Detoxification’ into 2015.

You will also recall the ‘Letter of Defamation’ sent to me by Cornwall Council in 2014 advising me not to name 2 Council employees on social media again who I alleged had been party to rigged Welfare Priority Assessments.

You will also recall that in reply to the ‘Letter of Defamation’ I named 4 other Council employees and an employee of the NHS Trust and have now named and shamed all 7 individuals in excess of 650 times on social media in just over a year and have still not been served with papers for ‘Defamation’ and which must be seen as substantiating my allegations. The 7 individuals :

JON WARNER – Cornwall Council Homechoice Representative 

RACHEL LYTHAM – Cornwall Council Homechoice Representative     

ANGELA WHITE –  Cornwall Council Occupational Therapist    

TONY GRAINGER – Cornwall Council Social Worker  

CLEMENCE LINCOLN-WILLIAMS –  Cornwall Council Occupational Therapist      

SARA HILL – Cornwall Council Occupational Therapist   

NHS EMPLOYEE (Who cannot be named for legal reasons)- Community Psychiatric Nurse, Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust   

You will also recall the above ‘CPN’ or a ‘Mental Health Team Representative’ was in fact only a ‘support worker’ and was not acting in an NHS capacity whilst he was a Panel member according to his employer the NHS Trust. That the Council lied and neither the NHS Trust or the Council will explain in what capacity the ‘support worker’ was a Panel member in the best interest and well being of the mentally ill and vulnerable.

I could go on.

If I have told you anything you did not already know Councillor Pollard then I suggest you had best consider your position as Leader of Cornwall Council. If I have told you nothing you did not already know then you truly are a disgrace to the people of Cornwall and you should resign immediately.

I do expect a reply to the above within 10 working days from the date above.

Yours sincerely

Geoff McLaughlin

So You Thought The Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Was A Caring And Respectable Trust ?

SO YOU THOUGHT THE CORNWALL PARTNERSHIP NHS FOUNDATION TRUST WAS A RESPECTABLE AND CARING TRUST ?

The following is a Freedom of Information request to the Trust on 29 September 2015, regarding it’s involvement in assisting Cornwall Council rig Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessments by abusing and discriminating against mentally ill and vulnerable adults.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From: Geoff McLaughlin

29 September 2015

Dear Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,

Dear Julie Dawson, Chief Operating Officer and Deputy CEO.

I wish to make a Freedom of Information Request.

My name is Geoffrey McLaughlin.

My contact address is : 34 Timber close, St Austell, Cornwall. PL25
5NZ.

My email address is : [email address], and is my preferred method
of contact.

You will recall Ms Dawson I made a FOI request on 10 April and was
unhappy with your reply of 20 April so requested a review on 27
April 2015, which was replied to by (cannot be named for legal reasons) due to your lengthy absence from the office.

She responded to only selected parts of the request in her
review and claimed the remainder was either exempt or related to
previous FOI Requests and Reviews. In my reply of 24 May I advised
her I could not accept her comments because I had never
requested an “Appeal of Freedom of Information Request FOI 46720”,
and because her comments related to FOI Requests and Reviews as far
back as February 2015.

(1) I request to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, what (cannot be named for legal reasons) meant when she stated
she had “independently reviewed” the request of 10 April 2015
involving her employer and fellow employees ?

(2) I request to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, why it was acceptable for her to introduce issues
into her review not mentioned in the original request of 10 April
2015 ?

I refer to the fact the review would have been refused by the Trust
had I introduced issues not mentioned in the original request ?

If (cannot be named for legal reasons) is clever she will already know she has
involved herself in a crime.

In reply to “This information is exempt from disclosure under
section 14 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is both a
repeated request and in addition both questions are exempt under
section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 200, as they
constitute personal information and disclosure of such would breach
an individual’s confidentiality”, unquote.

(3) I therefore request to know, and in the public interest and for
the record, what right the Trust has to dismiss requests which may
appear similar to previously unanswered requests ?

(4) I therefore request to know, and in the public interest and for
the record, what right the Trust has to deny me information
concerning an individual’s confidentiality and personal information
when the Trust itself has confirmed and recorded the individual’s
identity on the internet as being one (cannot be named for legal reasons) and that his
job title in 2012 was an “Assistant Practitioner” etc.

(5) I also request to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, why the Trust has decided not to protect or defend NHS
employee (cannot be named for legal reasons) reputation ?

I refer to the Council’s ‘Letter of Defamation’ sent to me over a
year ago for naming and shaming 2 of it’s employees on social
media. The fact I have since named and shamed 6 council employees
on social media, including (cannot be named for legal reasons) in excess of 500 times
without any legal consequences whatsoever perhaps says it all.

In reply to “The Trust does not hold this information in a
reportable format. Collating this information would exceed the
‘appropriate limit’ as defined in The Freedom of Information and
Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulation 2004 SI
2004 No 3244). Therefore, under Section 12 (1) of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000, this information is exempt as a public
authority is not obliged to comply with a request for information
if the authority estimates that the cost of complying with the
request would exceed the appropriate limit”, unquote.

(6) I therefore request to know, and in the public interest and for
the record, why the Trust does not have this information at hand ?

I refer to the Trust’s obligations and Duty of Care to provide
Representatives from the Health Authority on each Welfare Priority
Assessment Panel in the best interest and wellbeing of applicants
who also come under the health umbrella of the Trust ?

The Trust is already aware I find it deeply disturbing that the
Trust still has no idea how many mentally ill and vulnerable adults
it has neglected, abused and discriminated against as a direct
result of the Trust not representing them at Welfare Assessments.

(7) I therefore would like to know, and in the public interest and
for the record, how the Trust can prevent this negligence
continuing if the Trust does not even know the scale of the problem
and is unwilling to look by collating its information ?

(8) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, why no qualified Representative from the Health Authority
was on any of the 3 Welfare Priority Assessment Panels that
assessed my late wife and other applicants in 2012 ?

(9) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, how many times the Trust has failed to provide a
Representative of the Health Authority on each Welfare Priority
Assessment Panel ?

(10) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, when the Trust first realised Cornwall Council had falsely
described (cannot be named for legal reasons) as a “Community Psychiatric Nurse, Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust” ? and also as a “representative”
from the “Mental Health Team” in his capacity as a Panel member ?

Titles which contradicted advice the Trust gave to the PHSO in 2014
that (cannot be named for legal reasons) is a support worker, and although he is employed by the Trust, he was not acting in an NHS capacity whilst he was a
Panel member”, unquote.

Whilst I appreciate you will suggest I take it up with the Council
via FOI again, I am trying to establish when you the NHS Trust
decided to cover-up and deny everything.

(11) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, (cannot be named for legal reasons) came to be a Panel member without it not
involving some form of agreement, discussion or arrangement by
the Trust – (cannot be named for legal reasons) employer ?

(12) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, how many times the Trust has agreed to employee (cannot be named for legal reasons) being a Welfare Priority Assessment Panel member ?

Your previous reply that the Trust does not have this information
and that I should take it up with the Council via a FOI request is
rejected on the grounds that (cannot be named for legal reasons) is an employee and
representative of the NHS Trust and as such the Trust is ultimately
responsible for its employees.

(13) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, if Trust employee (cannot be named for legal reasons) was still under contract
with the NHS Trust whilst he was a Panel member ?

(14) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, how long the Trust has known its employee (cannot be named for legal reasons)is a fraudster ? I refer to (cannot be named for legal reasons) falsely signing himself as the”Mental Health Team Representative” on a Welfare Assessment Panel
Form in 2012 ?

(15) I would like to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, if (cannot be named for legal reasons) is still employed by the Trust despite him being untrustworthy and having broken the terms of his contract ?

I refer to (cannot be named for legal reasons) knowingly breaking the law.

(16) I also request to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, if the Trust advised the PHSO in what capacity NHS ‘support
worker’ (cannot be named for legal reasons) was a Panel member ?

(17) If not, did the PHSO request to know in what capacity the NHS
employed ‘support worker’ was a Panel member ?

(18) I also request to know, and in the public interest and for the
record, if the Trust advised the PHSO why it did not provide a
Representative of the Health Authority on the Welfare Assessment
Panel ?

(19) If not, did the PHSO request to know why the Trust did not
provide a Representative of the Health Authority on the Welfare
Assessment Panel ?

In reply to (cannot be named for legal reasons) decision to include the PHSO and the LGO into the Appeal/review, I acknowledge the ‘Catch 22’ situation I
found myself in the moment I lodged a complaint with the LGO
involving 2 distinct and separate bodies. That the LGO had no
authority to investigate the NHS Trust or its employee or determine
matters relating to health and medical issues.

Although the LGO did meddle in health issues to protect Cornwall
Council, and as a consequence the NHS Trust also, I have never
forgotten the LGO’s grandiose opinion that Welfare Assessments were
not medical as such. This despite Council Policy 23.2 stating the
Welfare Panel considers an applicant’s “medical and welfare need”.

When the PHSO was given an opportunity to investigate the NHS
Trust’s roll she rejected my complaint on the grounds it had
nothing to do with the NHS, and recommended I take my complaint up
with the LGO again. That (cannot be named for legal reasons) roll as a nomad in no man’s land had enabled the PHSO to perversely avoid NHS involvement and
therefore protected the Trust, avoided any potential of having to
contradict or disagree with the LGO’s decision and, as a
consequence, protected Cornwall Council also.

Unsurprisingly perhaps, Cornwall Council also recently mentioned
the LGO to the Freedom of Information Commissioner to avoid
answering FOI request. That unless the ICO could prove the LGO
wrong the Council was right. That the Council did not then have to
explain in what capacity  (cannot be named for legal reasons) was a Panel member on the Welfare Assessment Panel, or why the Council lied about (cannot be named for legal reasons) job description, or why the Council wilfully engaged in fraud the
moment  (cannot be named for legal reasons) made a false declaration on an official document etc. etc..

Please be assured further cover-ups, denials, stonewalling and
misinformation will only delay the inevitable.

Yours faithfully,

Geoff McLaughlin

CORNWALL WHISTLEBLOWERS

               CORNWALL WHISTLEBLOWERS

In response to the people of Cornwall no longer being protected against wrong doing by organisations like the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Cornwall Council, Devon & Cornwall Police and others, or if you work for any of the aforementioned organisations and others and would like to share what you know in the public interest and protect your identity, please contact me on writing via Geoff McLaughlin, 34 Timber Close, St Austell, Cornwall. PL25 5NZ. You do not need to state your name or personal details.

Sadly we in Cornwall are not being protected as we should and the media no longer reports what we, the public, should know. We therefore need to protect each other in order to correct this imbalance and for the greater good.

If you are an employee and you know your employer is doing things that is wrong and is not in the public interest you have a greater duty to your family, your friends and the people of Cornwall.
