How To Be Bully Proof

How to Be Free of Bullies

Bullying by an authority or organisation against an individual – phase 3

Council Corruption

The CAB has produced documents which show how almost half the UK’s local authorities have been acting outside the law and in a heavy handed fashion towards citizens who have fallen behind with their council tax payments, or people who were previously exempt from council tax, now needing to pay for the first time.

A similar example:

Once upon a time we had local authority run public car parks, whereas now these same spaces are run by private security or enforcement companies. There are obligations which still govern local authorities which they have found ways to get around: by using the private sector. Now when you get a parking ticket, the warden may be paid a bonus on commission and the council can pass the buck onto the private company when you call up to complain when you suspect a parking fine is not fairly issued. Does that sound familiar?

Another example of a public body using a private company to do its dirty work for it is the use of ATOS to do medical assessments for the distribution of disability living payments. Agents are incentivised to find ways to declare someone able to work and the chain of responsibility between the actions of ATOS and the public sector is broken by the simple denial of responsibility by public sector.

I have found it increasingly difficult to have in depth conversations with people as it seems as if their mind is made up on many topics, which brings to mind the Arctic Monkey’s song A Certain Romance: “They’ll never listenBecause their minds are made up” (Artic Monkeys – A Certain Romance) What is the difference […]
