The Cabin – Planning Application

Talking to residents at the Stamford Bridge Parish Council meeting on Monday I was surprised to hear everyone believed the planning application for The Cabin would be approved.

For various reasons I believe the application will be refused.

Time will tell.

Pam Allen Breaches Article 10

Pam Allen, in her role of ERYC Head of Children and Young People’s Support and Safeguarding Services, has breached my Article 10 rights to political expression by registering a complaint against me for whistleblowing failures of her officers.

Article 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998 states:

“Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without interference by public authority and regardless of frontiers.”

Liberty state:

“Article 10 gives everyone the right to freedom of expression, which includes the freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without State interference.

Formal Complaint

I have register a formal complaint against Pam Allen for breaching my Article 10 rights. In addition I have requested that the complaint made by her against me is stopped with immediate effect as to continue will further breach my Article 10 rights.

Pocklington Pavement – Collective Incompetence

Gateway is made up of Pocklington Town Council Councillors, ERYC Tory Councillors Mole and West and members of the public. Under the banner of Gateway a request was made to ERYC to spend £20,000 widening the Pavement footpath.

In The Beginning

The fools that make up PTC and the two Tory nodding dogs supported this. I fully disagreed as only so much money is spent on such projects each year in Pocklington and the money could be put to a better use than widened a footpath to nowhere. An example is much-needed dropped kerbs.

ERYC in their lack of wisdom supported the fools and nodding dogs. The result was a bollard in the middle of a dropped kerb, kerb stones next to the dropped kerb being 20 to 30mm high instead of the maximum permitted 6mm, an exit from the footpath for those in wheelchairs which was not fit for purpose and £20,000 wasted.

The Middle Game

Gateway thanked ERYC for doing a good job.

I requested and attended a site meeting with the ERYC Enginner who not only displayed anger issues but stated there was no issue. 

After this I requested a meeting with ERYC Director Paul Bellotti. Paul claimed everything would be put right as part of snagging!

End Game

Yesterday I was informed

“The footway works at the Pavement, Pocklington are programmed in to start on Monday 4 September 2017 and it is expected that they will take 2 weeks to complete

In order to mitigate the disruption to businesses the work force will be on site on Sunday 10 September 2017″

A further two weeks of disruption and no doubt this will cost another £20,000.


The fools that make up PTC, the nodding dogs who are ERYC Tory Councillors and ERYC officers who are blind monkeys clearly have no common sense between them.

These situations do not happen in the other six Parishes of Pocklington Provincial as each respective Parish Council have councillors blessed with common sense.

Wilberfoss Repairs – Seal Required

Unfortunately the Storking Lane repairs haven’t been edged with a line of tar.  If the edge isn’t sealed then the repair is unlikely to last.

I have requested ERYC to address the issue.

S – Thank you for drawing this to my attention.

Buckley and Lacey Corporate Bullying

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.
