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.

Ways to Stay Safe From COVID after “Freedom Day”

Luckily, an increasing amount of people are becoming aware that the current government’s focus has never been on public health or putting the nation’s interest first. It has always been on a fiscal agenda. Every decision and action has been on power and money, from the role of Public Health England, which favours pharmacy over […]

Why We Must All Work Together To End Pandemic

In my view, the vaccine roll-out is being carried out in a brash, divisive and careless way. Had clear and effective guidelines and a strategy to prevent sickness, deaths and further transmission been followed, we would be out of this by now. Instead, people are being coerced to have a vaccine instead of being able […]

Keeping Safe from COVID-19 – Can We Vaccinate Against Ignorance?

The Diffusion of Innovation, identified by E. M. Rogers in 1962, showed how new ideas and innovations spread through populations. According to writers such as Malcolm Gladwell, this is what makes the difference between non-starters and fire-starters and is how new trends have spread at least since the Agricultural Revolution. It doesn’t even have to […]

Don’t You Want My Money? Where is the swimwear in the colour, style and size I searched for?

As the sun rises in the sky, days get longer and the chilly wind is replaced by warm air, the seas and oceans around Cornwall call me to their shores. I am running out of swimwear. With rises in online shopping choices due to lockdowns, with Amazon and eBay competing with a wide range of […]
