Southwark’s Built-in System of Harassment

I’m using a garage to store the junk etc. Then this time, the Southwark Council suddenly started to bully over its payment after 6 years of no problem.

In order to get the garage, since the charge have to be paied by Direct Debit, I gave my Bank details and they programed it into the system. —– As you can see, the DD has been made every 15th day of the month, until this Pay-day the balance would be accumulated to nearly -£100. But, this method was what they designed and applied. They are programing the system contrary to ther own rule which says “Pay in Advance”. —– Then they started to bully about it, saying that the payment has to be made in advance = Pay £100 now as it is in arrear. (In fact, they are the one who was not following the rule = not program to collect the Direct Debit for advance payment —– yet, to force them to change may need a Judicial Review which I did take in the High Court once before as a litigant in person.)

But this is not just a money game but their very tactics and the system to trap and harass the people. They are keeping this weapon against all the people who is using the regular Direct Debit Payment to the Council. = One day, anybody could become a target of their harassment with a pretext of “Your Payment is in an arrear”. How dirty. Is this the way to manage the public authority whos Leader is holding the Honour of OBE from the Queen ?

Why they started this fuss at this moment is, —– they or someone in the Council wants to intimidate me. In order to suppress the criminal scandal of which a Council officer asked me to hand my art piece while saying a fire safety and an eviction. Such serious matter has to go to the Ombudsman if not the Police. (I’m watching the best solution = there is no time limit for Ombudsman or Police — Local Government Ombudsman directed me to take this case to Housing Ombudsman.)

As the officer in question is well aware that there is no escape against the voice recorded evidence = desperately need to take any sorts of intimidation = hence creating and leaving even more evidence.

(So, the locals warned me the danger of phisical attack by the hired criminals. = As long as this officer remains in this area, intimidation would continue) For the sake of such occasion, the Council is keeping the trap as the useful tactics, and demonstrated its use such as this time = You know, how dirty and rotten those people are. — (Those tactics were invented by the “Strategic Group” in the center of the Council —– I heard it from anarchist / hacker friend who used to work for them)

(They are believing such a tactics would work — but not to me — Once I did stand against the President of the High Court with one and half hour of speach based on a hefty Skelton Argument etc.etc. ——- On top of an ex-climber, I’m doing the Zen, not talking or thinking.)

Procure a Bribe or Extortion ?

Following this story (extract from the letter to the Leader of the Council) ~~~

 ~ ~ ~ Because of the matter seems to be potentially explosive, I decided to write direct to you. The matter is a behavior of one of your staff Ms. N * * * * resident officer of  * * * Estate.

This woman started to visit me a year ago.   Since I’m not a British (Japanese / Ex-Journalist), live in this country since 1975 alone, (and now I’m * * years old) she might be worrying about what could happen when I die. So, asking me my emergency contact again and again (more than 5 times while all of my relatives are in Japan therefore no point to repeat the same question if not a cynical joke mocking me “know your lonely death” ) —– (You can check her past entry to her tablet or the report to her so-called manager)

~ ~ ~  Yesterday (21st August 2018) she came again and made the same question with a pretext of a tenancy check. And asking me, if I found where to put my Art pieces, and said “Give me some” then started to mention that the fire and safety check would order to dispose my things as a fire hazard or obstruction to fire-escape, as I’m having a lot of half-finished sculptures or the material for those work. (On top of that, as I am a well-known photographer / camera critics, I got many cameras / collection of vintage cameras etc as well. )

Here the serious question is, is it your normal practice the council officer ask the tenant to give away the possessions under the threat of “Fire check” while hinting an eviction ?

Isn’t this nothing but an extortion ? Or asking a bribery isn’t it ? ~ ~ ~

(It seemed that the Leader of the Council handed the matter to the Strategic Director of Housing — and from him to the senior (or manager) of above mentioned Ms.N**** )

So the man came to my place to talk about Ms.N’s “Give me” matter though he only managed to say an useless character reference “She is not a kind of woman to say like that.” = Of course she wouldn’t ask him a bribe = He is her boss, not a tenant.  The trouble was this man was a kind of person telling me that the dead room plant was caused by me kept open the window. (and exposed the plant to the outside sub-zero air ! = What an ability this man got to fabricate a story, what an imagination ! = If it was the case, the temperature indicator could have gone down to a single digit and able to make my freezing story far more dramatic. —– While using costly electric heater against the Central Heating shut down when London had a snow, who needed to open the window ! )

When I mentioned that the conversation has been sound recorded.  He said it’s not legal to record without a permission. — Yes, same as a security camera, we can make a recording in our home unless it was made somebody else’s private moment like in the toilet.   As those council officers visit was a part of their official business, they can not claim a privacy.   Anyway, the officer’s words of Procurement of Bribery is in the public interest.  (in fact a criminal evidence) 

And what this man could utter was the same intimidation, the Fire and Safety check against my possessions.   (I’ve been having the same amount of possessions since I moved in here 17 years ago —– they only started to fuss about after Ms.N visited here a year ago = seemingly as a seer pretext of harassment. = And here it was used as a red herring. = The matter is not the safety issue but the Council Staff asking a bribe. )

—– So, seemingly the battle goes on. (I wonder how they can argue and escape from this situation ? —– But as a matter of fact, the Council may not able to suck a rotten apple because of a resistance from their Trade Union ( = They would say, it is nothing wrong to receive a present like between a good friend = why she has to be singled out ?.   And the council boss may not lose his pension because of this, anyway.)   Further more, even if the fire safety chief ordered me to remove my possession, they wouldn’t take costly Court action to enforce it.  And neither me needs to follow.  = So, on the surface, the battle may just goes on and rotten situation would just carry on = It’s a farce.       

—— I really wonder, isn’t any honest, decent people working in here ?  (Or is this an inherent culture in the south of  Themes ? —– as some cynics said = this is a home-grown Banana Republic where a bribe is the local currency.  

So, this is what goes on behind. And what went on behind the intimidation over the payment for the Garage.

So, there were few more Emails ~ ~ ~

~ ~ ~ Dear Ms.N * * * *  (22 Aug’)

Another day when you visited ~ ~ ~

Incidentally, about my art-pieces, you asked me “Don’t you sell ?”—– When you made this question, were you aware that those works has been listed on top of the Google’s search list (try such as >> St.Lucia, art figure    or  >> Yoshi, Zappa

Therefore, the value and the price of item may accordingly. So, your peculiar question to me “Give me” —– was this words made with the full knowledge of the situation which I afore said ?   Or were you ignorant to those matter ?

All the best

Yoshi ** * *

~ ~ ~ a mail from Ms.N to me (13 Sept’)

Please note that I find your allegation of asking you to “give me some” highly unacceptable.

I asked you whether you sold any of your pieces because you informed me you have a blog with many followers.

I have at no time asked you for anything what so ever.

I am happy for the council to investigate this matter fully.

~ ~ ~ ~

 ~ ~ ~ ~ to Ms.N * * * *  (14 Sept’)
.
Ho, if it was such “highly” unacceptable, why you didn’t say so when you visited me
and asked my phone number 5:00 Pm, yesterday ?
On that time, you had enough time to think while you waited me to fetch the number. 
You hadn’t been realized that the matter was such serious until you were told by your manager (may be today).
Since, you to say “Give me” was such natural reaction in your mind, you didn’t think about its seriousness at all till today.
I would say it too late for you to start to argue.  See the date of my Email to you = you had over 3 weeks to think.
If it was not true, you could have started the argument at once, couldn’t you ? ? ?

—– So, seemingly the battle goes on. (I wonder how they can argue and escape from this situation ? —– But as a matter of fact, the Council may not able to suck a rotten apple because of a resistance from the Trade Union ( = They would say, it is nothing wrong to receive a present as between a good friend = why she has to be singled out ?).   And the council boss may not lose his pension because of this, anyway.)   Further more, even if the fire safety chief ordered me to remove my possession, they wouldn’t take Court action to enforce it.  And neither me needs to follow.  = So, on the surface, the battle may just go on and rotten situation would just carry on = It’s a farce.       

—— I really wonder, isn’t any honest, decent people working in here ?  (Or is this an inherent culture in the south of  Themes ? —– as some cynics say = home-grown Banana Republic where a bribe is the local currency.   And as such, = superficially separated wife and the children as a self-proclaimed victim of a domestic violence,  get another flat at once together with a benefit,  then rented out one of the flat for a good money = every neighbors know it, council staff knows it, still no problem as everybody is a good friend. —– Once I staid such flat for a week. (I learned a lot.) The guy who owns it has yet another flat in the next council as well, with a different ID as a homeless.) 

The fundamental trouble here IS, even if somebody in the council suddenly developed a cancer and died, nothing would change = just other same kind will take over the job and the same situation goes on.  —– made me even more depressed. (That’s why not so many blue sky outside shot appeared in here, either no new sculpture created = other than the tinkered junk.)

1085th Post or yet another 8150

I noticed that on this blog, I published  1085 posts.  And this very  1085th post was that Southwark trouble, which went up to the Ombudsman. —– As a matter of fact, this IS the second time me to deal with Ombudsman.   On the time of the first occasion, the issue was potentially I could send the MP to impeachment.   One local politician who helped me to configure the complaint half the way, suddenly became aware of the grave implication, then dropped off the support while saying Oh, I don’t have time. —– Funnily enough it was the very moment this politician and the Party lost their political fortune.  So, the party lost local election, and that politician lost the seat too and never able to come back.  (It took another ten years for this party to regain the power in Southwark.) 

Why 1085th was so much the matter, you may say. = This IS yet another strange phenomena of 8150 jinx.  It IS a kind of omen and the intervention of the fate (what Buddhists call Karma) which is telling me the significance of THE MATTER.  It could be a warning of a risk or a notice of their support.   Since I received this sign, I’ve been dealing with this current Southwark trouble with utmost heaviest priority and the caution.  So that, while dealing with the matter, I could find the crucial information or the evidences as if it was placed there for me to use.  (So the sound recording of the visitor’s words has been kept.)   In the other hand, if something became too difficult to access, such as Mail Daemon started to say “Couldn’t find the address” = such coincident was in fact a message “Don’t go there”.    Or, other side manage to make own mistake and blow up the scandal ( = such as demonstrated the Hacking and managed to perform the Extortion.)  —– (In the past, I found quite few people who has been implicated, suddenly died, such as Paul Foot etc.= Sound dubious though, as it has happened, it must be the proof of what the person did = the consequence of cause and the effect = So, I’m pretty thrilled, who come next ? —– I’m not playing with Karma, I just watch and analyzing how it works. )

———— There are many strange stories in the following “Related Post” or among the  collection of “8150 Story” in the right column category. —– (In principal, unlike Tantra sect, I don’t believe the super natural phenomena in the Buddhism, yet still, I was said to be borne under the protection of the Fire God (hence I don’t get ill neither meet any accident, so does the 8150 follow me), though, I don’t have a power to make share price up or pretty girl drop her pants ( = how shame = when I made this joke, one of my friend said to me that I was a luckiest man because I’ve been avoiding the worst possible trouble in our life in its first place —– though, Mahayana says, that the trouble itself IS a part of our Life) = power of Zen or Buddhism only works when we have absolutely no mind / no thinking / no intention while doing the work in due in our life.)

Council hacked into the Mail

A09A8474

I’ve been in fighting with Southwark Council in the past 20 years (?) = their harassment and my fighting back.   It seems they don’t like a person who doesn’t succumb under their muscle especially I was not a kind of  Afghan, Vietnamese refugee but a rare Japanese photo-journalist still live in their council flat.

Latest attack was not to repair my Central Heating on the time when England had very cold spell in this February to March. When the coldest spell ended they (repair service) sent me a mail saying Sorry for the delay. This words were the evidence of that it was not caused by a technical failure on the mailing system, but they has been intentionally ignored the request while having a full knowledge of the situation.  Normally, such kind of repair work is rather simple routine = could be done within few days like both-side of my neighbours —– but this time somebody must be schemed a blockage targeting only me.

Rice Beetle Blog COPY

(The corner of the room, the temperature must come down sub-zero = the plant has died.  Near the kitchen where I put an electric heater, it was 13 degree C —– Is this a condition for a man in 21st century London to live ? = This is in the Southwark.)  (Dead plant must horrify the judge in the Court ! —– mandatory step to take a Court action will be complete after the Ombudsman procedure and the Court is my old playing field !)

So the matter went into the Complaint procedure, first stage, second stage, then it should go to the Local government Ombudsman.   The Ombudsman is the independent body, appointed by the Queen.  The Council can not interfere the process. They would be investigated by the same power of Hi-Court.

A09A8476

The funny things was, when I started to type the online form for the Ombudsman, I received a mail from the Council Repair section which says that “the CH has been repaired” —– I know it.   But the matter I’m complaining IS the damage I’ve received during the winter time. The damage has done. I had to spend extra cost for the electric heating etc.   This IS the time they has to pay for the price of their conduct.

And the more serious matter which exposed here WAS how they know that I was going to send the complaint to the Ombudsman ?

Off course, online complaint system go through the computer mail system = BY HACKING INTO MY MAIL, THEY CAN SEE WHAT I’M DOING.

This IS the very serious matter. The local government, Southwark Council is hacking the people’s mail, in order to prevent their misconduct exposed to the Ombudsman !

This is the national scale scandal. (Are they such silly people ? While leaving such clear red-handed evidence ! — or, are they going to say that it was still a coincident ? )

The leader Southwark Council

160 Tooley Street

London SE1 2QH

Dear Cllr P * * * *

Allow me to write you a letter unheralded. I, Y * * * is one of the resident in the Southwark and a tenant of your Council Housing since 2001.

Because of the matter seems to be potentially explosive, I decided to writ direct to you.

The matter is a behaviour of one of your staff Ms. N * * * * resident officer of  * * * Estate.

This woman started to visit me a year ago.   Since I’m not a British (Japanese / Ex-Journalist), live in this country since 1975 alone, (and now I’m * * years old) she might be worrying about what could happen when I die. So, asking me my emergency contact again and again (more than 5 times while all of my relatives are in Japan therefore no point to repeat the same question if not a cynical joke mocking me “lonely death” ) (You can check her past entry to her tablet or the report to her so-called manager)

Another point which may be relevant is, I’m also quite well known for artistic creation. So that, where to dispose those art pieces — or who inherit those ? May seems to be a problem though, the important point is, those matter is not your business. Don’t interfere my life.

Yesterday (21st August 2018) she came again and made the same question with a pretext of a tenancy check. And asking me, if I found where to put my Art pieces, and said “Give me some” then started to mention that the fire and safety check would order to dispose my things as a fire hazard or obstruction to fire-escape, as I’m having a lot of half-finished sculptures or the material for those work. (On top of that, as I am a well-known photographer / camera critics, I got many cameras / collection of vintage cameras etc as well. )

Here the serious question is, is it your normal practice the council officer ask the tenant to give away their possession under the threat of “Fire check” while hinting an eviction ?

Isn’t this nothing but an extortion ? Or asking a bribery isn’t it ?

I would like to know where is your stance.

And I should expect your prompt reply.

Poor Nature

This poor friend is what I found on the pavement. (The actual size is 45mm across)

He is the largest Stag Beetle I came across in this country ( Japanese Stag Beetle is twice big.

—- Notorious Killer Wasp which we call  Suzume Bachi ( Sparrow Wasp )is 2″ big, by the way ).

Though,  when somebody saw this Beetle on the pavement, the person might have thought, this is

a big cockroach and stumped on him,  hence his broken stags and crushed body.—— How shame.

Once before,  I saw the collection of the cockroaches came from all over the world at a Lab’ in

the Imperial College,  from the hissing cockroach to 4″ big sandy brown / black striped beautiful one.

Though, common cockroach is the public enemy number one.  This hatred is almost chemically

programmed in the mind.  Therefore the person who saw a black insect, wouldn’t have given a shred of

thought or time and instantly crushed him with almost automatic reaction.

So, it must be too much to ask to give a close look and distinguish him out.

So, I only can  say, it was his misfortune to venture out the woods and came to the building area.

Zen asking instant judgment and reaction though,  preceding to its action,  the clear eyes to see and

distinguish the situation, has the crucial importance. ( Of cause, I wouldn’t expect to the people

able to distinguish a stag beetle, as they may never seen or learned it before —– even myself have seen

it less than 10 times over 30 odd years living in this country )

—– So, I only hope, behind the one dead body,  yet another 10 are still surviving somewhere in the woods.

And I’d like to ask the people who got a big garden to leave the pile of log or trunk of dead tree ( leave it

as 3~4 feet high ) for them to nest inside.

In south London,  there is a green area called Peckham Rye Common and it was once named the dirtiest

park in London by a news paper. Then the local Council / Southwark  took an action —– clean up all the

dead wood, concreted the pond floor removing all the water plants.  Pond used to have larvae of such

as Damsel Fly, and Newts were crawling among the water plants.—– I complained to the Council and

they replied that they are having consultation of naturalists —– What sort of scientists ?  Bollocks.

” Who the Scientist ?”  ” We can’t reveal the name, to protect identity ” —– It’s just a smoke-screen.

Utterly bollocks and nothing but a vandalism to the Nature.  Clean up,since insects gone hence birds gone.

Nature is not clean and tidy.  Dead tree and rotting wood is the essential part of it.

We shouldn’t forget —— We humankind is the most dirtiest, harmful toxic part of it.

With a kind of guilty conscience  we need to pay back to the Nature —– we should be humble

since, soon or later the Nature will kick us back.  Look, the Planet Earth is becoming barren land.

Pakistani top-soil was washed away, Russia and Amazon are burning, American mid-west,

north-west Africa, Australia are drying up ——- to mention but few.

And this is the manifestation of the Karma.  We are picking our fruits.  Toxic bitter fruits.
