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.

Why Ideology is Like a Virus and Needs Community Leadership to Oppose

Like a virus, the spread of ideology relies on transmission among the community. Society is made up of various groups and has been since the dawn of time. We have a minority of thought leaders known as innovators and they are followed by Early Adopters. Trumpism and Brexit, like Nazi Germany, have relied on the […]

Had UK Government Put Public Interests First, Might We Have Averted Disaster

Boris Johnson’s Government’s focus seems to have been on big corporation interests from the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, thinking they could “flatten the curve” after contact tracing and quarantining had been dropped. After John Newton predicted a million cases, the government abandoned its contact tracing in favour of a 3-4 month national lockdown. Could […]

Creativity Will Always Be Important for Humanity

I’ve felt for years the western world, particularly, is making it increasingly difficult for visual thinkers to survive. Creative people tend to be solution finders, problem solvers, thinkers, observers, investigators and inventors. This might mean that creative people design their own processes into their work. Therefore following a new unfamiliar process on its own is […]

Voyage of Discovery about Nutrition

Almost finished Tim Spector’s book Spoonfed, which is a detailed overview of human nutrition from a GP and nutritional scientist’s perspective. If only every GP needed to study nutrition as Tim Spector has. Spector’s book demystifies every area of the modern diet from gluten, animal and plant protein, gluten, fibre, caffeine, alcohol, water and shows […]

We Must Keep Our Wits About Us

I watched #Brexit – An Uncivil War on Netflix last night and thought: how easy society is to manipulate. How can we feel ourselves being boiled like frogs? How did Michael Gove, Dominic Cummings end up in parliament and Nigel Farage become an MEP. The reasonable thinking that existed up til 2016, fought for by […]
