My attempts to stop them

Dodgy LibDems Mr Parnell RIP


The email below is from the appalling FoI Officer, Ms Naven.  I had a letter of authority to act on Mr Parnell's behalf in an effort to stop them arresting him for entering Council buildings to sort out fabricated council tax arrears. Naven refused to accept that letter of authority saying she needed a more up to date one, but she never wrote to Mr Parnell on the subject, so she would never have received it from him would she?  Stockport Council - bent as a nine bob note!

Dear Mrs Oliver,

Further to your request for information regarding Mr Parnell, as I have informed you on a number of previous occasions, I have not received the information I require from Mr Parnell; therefore I have returned your £10 cheque in the post today. If the information I have requested directly from Mr Parnell is provided by him at some point in the future I will contact you to inform you, at which point the fee will be requested.

Yours sincerely,

Claire Naven

Dear Ms Naven

Please confirm you are dealing with my data request about Mr. Parnell. I need to send the results to the Home Secretary who is going to abolish ASBOs. This evidence will be useful to her. I also need to send it to the journalist who will be covering Mr Parnell's show trial in November.

It merely takes a simple acknowledgment from you.

Kind regards

Sheila

Dear Ms Oliver,

I write to confirm that your email below (and your email of 22 nd March) have been brought to my attention. I note that you have requested that Mr Houston investigates your complaint further at Stage 2. I should inform you that this would be inappropriate given that I am specifically tasked with investigating complaints at Stage 2 of the corporate complaints procedure. Mr Houston has already investigated and responded to your complaint at Stage 1.

If you still wish to proceed with your complaint I would be grateful if you would let me know why you remain unhappy following the Stage 1 response? I look forward to receiving your comments within the next 10 days. I will then investigate your complaint and aim to provide you with an outcome within 20 working days.

Alternatively, if you do not wish for me to investigate your complaint you can escalate your complaint to the Local Government Ombudsman (LGO); however it is unlikely that they will investigate as your complaint has not been exhausted locally. The contact details for the LGO are as follows:

Subject: Mr Parnell

Dear Mr Houston

Regarding the letter sent by you on 8th March 2012, I can't request Mr Majothi carries out the stage 2 complaint process because he is up to his neck in this case. He should have realised the Council had a statutory duty to help Mr Parnell and got off his bottom and done something. He didn't - year after year after year. He is a massive part of the problem.
You will have to deal with the Stage 2 complaint.

I have heard nothing back from Mr Parnell, so the letter of authority stands until you send me written confirmation that he doesn't want me to act for him or I hear further from him. I am happy not to act on his behalf as I have a lot on my plate, but I wonder if the two council officers you mention are the same ones who threatened to kill him, kick his f*cking head in and ram his phone so far up his backside he would be sh*tting phone parts for a week, or, indeed, the ones who attacked him. Or, I wonder if they are officers who knew all this was happening (I sent you the video evidence) and did nothing about it. I hope you don't mind if I don't take the word of anyone at Stockport Council. Documentary evidence is needed before I stand down.

I am taking the matter to the Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate, who have recently been very critical of the CPS. I didn't know they existed. Mr Parnell's case should never have been taken by them to court as they failed to prove the five statutory tests they need to establish before taking a case forward, and they took a huge number of cases forward against him.

So, no whitewashes please. Just do your job and do it properly and every step of the way I shall keep interested parties informed of your responses.
Just some points from your letter which need raising:-

1)
"this letter has addressed the issues raised under Stage 1 of the Council's corporate complaints procedure." No, it hasn't!

2)
"I have decided not to uphold your complaint". This is not surprising but nevertheless disappointing. You were, of course, always likely to support Mr Khan.

3)
"It would be inappropriate for the Council to investigate the complaints you have raised on behalf of Mr. Parnell.....he subsequently spoke to two Council Officers to retract the consent."
This comment is unacceptable. It is vital to know who these supposed council officers are? Please detail their names and the circumstances of this alleged encounter.

4)
"As you no longer have authority to act on behalf of Mr Parnell, the Council is not obliged to investigate the issues you have raised on his behalf." I do have authority unless you prove otherwise.

I have experience of the Council's complaints system which is innavigable. I raised with Mr. Majothi the fact that the school which I correctly stated had a £5 million black hole in its funding, was to be put on unremediated toxic waste. I got nowhere with Mr. Majothi and I think you will realise that I am no quitter. He is impossible to deal with. There are entire websites devoted to the sheer incompetence of our Local Ombudsman and as they employ former senior council officers, their impartiality is in doubt.

5) I have repeatedly raised this matter with the former Chief Executive, the Leader, the Current Chief Executive, Khan, Webb and all the Executive Councillors. I have the email evidence. To say I have not raised this matter before is an untrue statement and I wonder why you should claim that despite a large amount of documentary evidence to the contrary. I have been branded vexatious for contacting the Council repeatedly. If the Council stopped sending innocent council taxpayers to prison and failing to investigate their valid complaints, there would need to be less contact.

6)
"Mr Parnell should have complained about these issues sooner". Mr Parnell tried and tried and tried, as can be confirmed by the local reporter. He was repeatedly arrested for trying to enter council buildings. I have had to plead with the police not to arrest him for trying to leave a council meeting early. You forget there is masses of documentary police and court evidence. Please do not insult my intelligence by making such ludicrous statements which are ill-befitting to a senior and highly paid Council officer.

Your letter is full of shoulds and mays and inappropriates and when you say it is difficult to investigate Mr Khan you mean you really don't want to.

Please proceed with this complaint and do so in an honest and professional matter, bearing in mind the close scrutiny to which your replies and indeed the whole complaint process at Stockport Council will be put.

Yours

Sheila




An email from me to Mr Parnell's useless MP Andrew Stunell

Email sent - 13 September 2009 18:26

I am well used to your hypocritical ways over the Goyt Valley and building in flood plains - pretending you are green and writing to the Environment Agency on flooding issue, but if Mr. Parnell or his family commit suicide over this terrible treatment he is getting, I shall hound you with your pontificating over the wrong people being in prison.

Do something for once.

Mrs Oliver



On 7th December 2008 I asked a public question at Stepping Hill Area Committee. On this committee were the Council Leader, Executive Councillors Hogg, John Smith and Mark Weldon, two Corris's, Ben Alexander and Wendy Meikle.

"I often attend Stepping Hill Area Committee meetings to hear the police representative castigated by councillors for the police's failure to respond to citizens in need of their help.

As I understand it, the Council has called the police 30 - 40 times to our gentle and well-mannered town hall protester, with the resulting hours and hours of police officer and duty solicitor time being tied up with paperwork.

Now, as I understand it, the town protester is on bail charged with common assault with a sneeze with intent to inflict a cold on a council employee.

Do you feel this is a productive use of police time?"

Sheila Oliver

(Mr Parnell was aquitted of all charges in a 3 day £10,000 per day Crown Court appeal. The council security guards were found in court to have perjured themselves regarding this matter and CCTV evidence in court showed no sneeze. However, the police continued to accept the lies told by these same security guards regarding Mr Parnell in future arrests. Something really, really stinks in LibDem Stockport where the police appear to be at the beck and call of grubby local politicians with the full connivance of the Chief Constable Fahy.)
