Over recent months I have been forced to endure corporate bullying by Mathew Buckley, ERYC Head of Legal and Caroline Lacey, ERYC Chief Executive.
Buckley has refused to acknowledge my rights to political expression and Lacey has supported his position. It is my opinion that this is corporate bullying.
For the avoidance of any doubt neither Buckley or, indeed, any Paid Public Servant has any power or control over the public utterances of any private individual, either via the internet or any other medium of publication.
Such utterances are protected by Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) [UDHR], Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights (1953) [ECHR], and Article 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998 [HRA].
Code of Conduct v UK Law
UK law supersedes the ERYC Code of Conduct
The ERYC Standards Committee cannot make a decision on anything which requires a legal qualification to make. No Code of Conduct can be heard against me which requires a legal opinion apart from by those legally qualified to do so. Indeed those sitting on the Standards Committee cannot give a legal opinion as by doing so they would be in breach of legislation.
Independents – Code of Conduct
As an Independent I make a decision of everything brought to my attention on a case by case basis. As such everything I state is a political expression.
I believe this applies to all Independents.
Email To Lacey
I have emailed Lacey giving her until close of business Friday 18 August to cancel all Code of Conduct complaints against me as they breach fundamental legislation and my enshrined rights.
In addition, I have requested apologies from her and Buckley for the corporate bullying I have been subjected to by them.
If this is not forthcoming I will have no option but to submit a formal complaint against Buckley and Lacey.
