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.

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 […]

Understanding Adults with Dyspraxia in Education and at Work

This morning I had a conversation with a tutor that left me feeling somewhat alienated and disorientated. Conveying how I work to plan my progress to someone who doesn’t think as I do takes a huge amount of energy and feels unrewarding and unproductive.   Today, a Google search for anything about strategies for work […]
