How To Be Bully Proof

How to Be Free of Bullies

Bullying by an authority or organisation against an individual – phase 5

As I mentioned earlier, the Citizen’s Advice Bureau has well documented actions by local authorities against members of the population and outlined the responsibilities that the councils do hold, even though they try and abscond themselves from these duties.

Here is an example of a campaign used by a council to bully a member of the public over council tax arrears.

1. The citizen fell behind on council tax due to the nature of his business (builder/property developer) and the actions of companies (letting agencies) who do not do what they are paid for.

2. The council sends out summons and liability orders that:

  • Are not what they say they are.
  • Cost a fraction of what some councils try to charge for them.
  • Are way too heavy handed and threatening.
  • Have not been preceded by any neutral warnings, requests for payment or reasonable approaches to arrange payments in a viable manner.
  • Private service providers are used who are not constrained by the same obligations to the public that local authorities are, giving the local authority the opportunity to shun their responsibilities and pass the buck.
  • Charges incurred by councils, or any costs they choose, are passed onto the citizen. This is a non-physical of the “bully attack,” when the bully uses force to extract their prize from their victim.
  • Spoils from the “bully attack” make their way back to the ‘ringleader’. Again this gives us a clue as any income made by councils that they will not declare when asked under the Freedom of Information Act is likely to have been purloined through this type of bullying. In other words, these funds have been extorted through unlawful means.

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 […]
