Shameful Labour Expel 70 Year Old Disabled Woman Over Single Tweet – How She Can Sue

In a heart rending story, left-leaning blog the Skwawkbox reported how Labour have shamefully expelled a 70 year old member with a confirmed diagnosis of bi-polar disorder for a single tweet during a manic episode. A barrister, Duncan Shipley-Dalton has confirmed that this is likely unlawful under the EA 2010 and I agree. As it happens I have a knowledge of political party disciplinary case law and consider that there is also likely a claim in contract law. In this article, I have been sufficiently moved to expand on the barrister’s opinion and offer to help for free.

Two Irate Looking Judges

Some angry judges. What might happen if this went to court.

Firstly, I agree with the barrister that the conduct is indirect discrimination and in any event as he says the current rule book confers no such power. However, I would add that if it did, it would likely fall foul of –

Where expulsions from political parties are litigated, there is also case law requiring clubs and other such organisations to follow their own rules, for example, Lee v Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain [1952] 2 QB 329. I also observe that it is particularly disturbing if Labour are using a bot on either Twitter or Facebook to expel people.

Horrific Abuse Scandal at SJW Enfield Council but No Apology from Labour Leader Doug Taylor

This article is based on a judgement reported and made public by HHJ Hilder. I have discovered the identities of some of the abusers but for now I have precisely followed the judge’s anonymisations whilst I clarify the precise court orders in force. In due course I may, if necessary, apply to the court for a variation.

DougTaylorShame

SHAME – Worthless Labour councillor Doug Taylor is leader of Enfield Council. The abuse happened on his watch, yet he has not apologised to victims and their families.

Recently, the case of The Public Guardian v Matrix Deputies Ltd & Anor (Rev 1) [2017] EWCOP 14 appeared on BAILII. The case is shocking, but would have been completely secret had not Her Honour Judge Hilder commendably and of the court’s own motion made it public.

In summary, the London Borough of Enfield, by some procurement process that remains opaque (and in relation to which Enfield seem to have ignored my questions), decided to outsource the management of the property and affairs of vulnerable clients. In the UK, if a person lacks mental capacity to manage their finances due to (for example) dementia or severe learning disability, then they may be subject to a Deputyship – a court order appointing someone to do it for them.

Matrix Deputies is a UK limited company and the judge has permitted them to be named. The company and its officers were involved in Deputyships for 52 clients, 8 of which are now dead. The court proceedings began when the UK Public Guardian applied to terminate all of those Deputyships on the grounds of financial abuse. According to the schedules in the judgement, incidents of concern were occurring at least since 2014.

After the Public Guardian made the application it appears at some point the London Borough of Enfield was appointed as an interim Deputy by order of 17 February 2016 was ordered to investigate the affairs of the clients and the dealings by Matrix. This investigation was conducted on the council’s behalf by PwC, the well known accountants. The investigation cost roughly a quarter of a million pounds (£250,000) in part due to non-cooperation by Matrix Deputies. The money has yet to be fully recovered.

Female Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker Backs MenCap Campaign to Avoid Multi-million Back Pay Bill Over to Minimum Wage Workers

The new actor portraying Dr Who, Jodie Whittaker, has waded into a highly charged and controversial debate about back pay for low-paid vulnerable care workers. A number of care organisations have been found to be unlawfully paying below minimum wage and the government has been seeking back pay. Ms Whittaker has sought to help the charities avoid their liabilities, backing a campaign for the taxpayer to foot the bill instead.

I have stayed out of the heated debate about the casting of a female Dr Who. Recasting a much loved character – even changing the colour of their cape – is often a controversial topic. Fans grow attached to characters who (being fictional) are defined solely by their brand and fictional attributes. Turning the entire Time Lord people into a race of transsexuals by retconning the possibility of regeneration into another biological sex was always a controversial proposition.

The Stalkers Stalked! Troll Sets Up Sinister Site Targeting Joshua Conner Moon as Dynastia Loses his Cool

For some time now, Matthew Hopkins News has covered the depraved website Kiwi Farms. The site boasts it is set up to exploit the mentally disabled for “amusement”, has been repeatedly closed and moved in some case by hosting companies that said the site contained child pornography. Joining the site requires applicants to watch a video of vulnerable adults in unpleasant situations (such as a seriously disabled female self harming) and correctly answer questions (example archived here – video greyed out but question visible). Now in the face of police inaction, anonymous vigilantes have taken the law into their own hand and promise equally vicious escalation.

For my part, please note that I do not condone criminal activity of any kind. If this site receives emails from persons contemplating or committing serious future or ongoing criminal acts such as terrorism or violence I shall disclose them to appropriate law enforcement agencies without warning.

SinisterForumKFN

Kiwi Farms NOT (KFN) is a sinister forum set up to harass Joshua Moon’s family in retaliation for his creation, Kiwi Farms. The URL has been blacked out and although the forum can easily be found on Google it will not be linked from here. Click for full size.

The site owner of Kiwi Farms Joshua Moon (also known as Null, IBan and Ichverbot) has intentionally hosted child rape stories on his now defunct image site 16chan and boasted of masturbating to Neko Shota (cartoon child pornography featuring boys). Whilst Kiwi Farms claims that under its rules members merely comment and do not harass this is an obvious lie – they frequently post addresses and phone numbers exhorting each other to contact their victims. Terrorist threats in Pensacola, Florida and Wales, United Kingdom have been linked to the site. In January, the site went down but it was restarted this month under the same owner. Continue reading

CheckAdSenseBan.com Reports that Joshua Conner Moon’s Kiwifarms.net is Banned by Google AdSense

In the latest humiliation for Kiwi Farms and its owner Joshua Conner Moon, its Google Adverts seem to have disappeared as of a week or two ago. Whilst Google never comments publicly on such matters, two separate online tools confirm that KiwiFarms.net and KiwiFarm.is are banned.

The ban is a major humiliation for Joshua Conner Moon. Ranksays.com estimates that the site is worth $439 per month and that money is now lost to Joshua Moon and his company LOLCow LLC. It is widely acknowledged that Google are one of the best advertising networks by far.

That Which Sleeps Fandom Becomes Near-Literal Cult As Delays Continue

Way back in 2014 I spent $50 on a Kickstarter for a promising looking Indie Game called ‘That Which Sleeps’. Per my previous coverage, (1) the (delayed) game is supposedly an ‘evil-returning-god’ simulator where the player manipulates a living world to prepare for their return. The game had a great Kickstarter but since then developers have consistently failed to keep their promises. The game promised to beta in December 2014 yet a year on, 31st December 2015, no beta has been released. (2) On protesting and suggesting contact with the Federal Trade Commission (the US equivalent of Trading Standards in the UK) in October 2015, your author and others received refunds and were removed from the game forums.

I do not intend to fully recap the developers’ discourtesy, lack of professionalism or broken promises here. Readers are advised to refer to my previous articles. The high points are that during the Kickstarter the developers claimed that the project was low risk because much of the game was already written. Kickstarter materials stated, “We have a working game” and also that a scenario viewer was complete and ready to release directly after the campaign, which ended in October 2014.

Beta was promised for December 2014, then March 2015 and it is now the 31st December 2015, New Year’s Eve. The supposedly working game is now in its second chronological year of post Kickstarter development. The scenario viewer has never been released although a partially functional map editor has been. After increasingly acrimonious forum posts from backers in October 2015, on 12/10/2015 developer Josh Perry promised some gameplay videos. There were to be three released at one week intervals showing the early, mid and late games. So far only one has been released.

Legal Remedies for Milo Yiannopoulos and Julie Bindel Versus Manchester University Student Extremists

The Witchfinder explores legal remedies that may be open to gay journalist Milo Yiannopoulos and feminist Julie Bindel after being banned from attending an event at University of Manchester Students’ Union. Comments are legal opinion, untested by any court.

JessLishakSharpenedHammerAndSickle

University of Manchester Students’ Union Women’s Officer Jess Lishak, shown in a black shirt with hammer and sickle. Original picture was released on Flickr by ‘Jennifer’ here (archive here) under the irrevocable NC-BY-SA 2.0 open source license (archive here). Image was further amended by cropping, enhancing and photoshopping a Communist hammer and sickle onto Jess’ convenient black shirt for parody purposes. It is therefore asserted the image falls under s30A Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1998 – the ‘parody exception’ and can be used commercially for that purpose. 09/10/2015 – Image Amended

In 2012 the European Court of Human Rights rules in the case of Redfearn v United Kingdom (Application no. 47335/06). Arthur Redfearn was a bus driver. He was also a member of the British National Party, a British far right party that opposes immigration and multiculturalism. Conservative grandee Lord Tebbit once called them, “Labour with racism”.

The Court ruled in favour of Mr Redfearn and UK law was changed. Recent case law appears to confirm that political views – even extremist views, can fall within the definition of a ‘philosophical belief’ under s10 Equality Act 2010.

Yet Milo Yiannopoulos does not hold extremist views. Manchester Students’ Union, in a statement (archive here), say they banned him because –

“We have been made aware of various comments lambasting rape survivors and trans* people, and as such we are concerned for the safety of our students on the topic of this event. He is a rape apologist and has repeatedly used derogatory and debasing ableist language when describing members of the trans* community.”

I am unaware of any occasion where Milo Yiannopoulos has apologised for, nor mitigated rape. He has on some occasions highlighted false allegations and the need for procedural safeguards.

Yiannopoulos is a supporter of #GamerGate, a cultural libertarian, pro-free speech, anti-censorship, consumer movement. As a prominent cultural libertarian, he would likely have mentioned #GamerGate in the context of freedom of speech.

Jessica Asato – Worthless SJW Narcissist, Failed Parliamentary Candidate and Hypocrite

FortunateJessica

Jessica Asato is fabulously privileged oppressed. Image an obvious parody used under s30A Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988

Failed Labour ‘Politician’ and online social justice warrior Jessica Asato recently took part in the witch-hunt against Protein World (archive here). More recently she has joined in with mob online condemnation of a lawyer as ‘sexist’ for complementing someone’s appearance. Shame Asato herself is no stranger to privilege and political incorrectness. Your Inquisitor calls on moderate cultural libertarians to join the online debate she helped to start in order to set matters right.

Condemning allegedly ‘sexist’ remarks by a respected lawyer. Labour ‘politician’ Jessica Asato remarked that, “I would rather be complimented on my achievements than my face” (archive here). The comment echoes Martin Luther King’s famous quotation, dreaming his children would, “[…] not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character […]”.

The remark is typical of Asato’s narcissistic and self-absorbed conduct – but if Jessica wants to be  judged by her achievements and character rather than her appearance your author is only too happy to help.

Mental Health Stigma is Never Acceptable – For Anita Sarkeesian and Gawker it is #TimeToChange

The Witchfinder examines the use of discriminatory and / or stigmatising language and tropes in online statements by Anita Sarkeesian and by Gawker (for example Sam F Biddle) in light of the well known #TimeToChange campaign against mental health discrimination and stigmatising language. Your Inquisitor continues to call for an advertiser boycott of Gawker.com .

PsychopathsAllThatIsLeft

Sam F Biddle makes use of stigmatising mental health tropes, singling out an apparently vulnerable individual. Picture used for the purpose of criticism pursuant to s 30 (1) Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

Your author is a law student with a specialist interest in mental capacity and mental health law, who has represented people in Court pro-bono. As a result of his work your author was asked to give evidence to the House of Lords Committee on the Mental Capacity Act 2005 under his real name, Sam Smith. See pages 1608 – 1614.

The Witchfinder focuses on the remedy of last resort – namely lawsuits. However, much of the work of ending mental health and disability discrimination begins before then – in ending oppressive tropes and language. Time to Change have published a guide to inappropriate and stigmatising media content. Unfortunately, the Witchfinder has found that use of discriminatory terms is far more prevalent in certain parts of the left, notably the self-appointed guardians of ‘social justice’ than it is on the right. This article discusses Sam F Biddle of Gawker and Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency.

The 2007 academic paper, ‘250 labels used to stigmatise people with mental illness’ was written by academics from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London and Mental Health Charity Rethink. It contains a convenient table of discriminatory words used to oppress disabled people. Of course everyone uses such words and it is simplistic and inappropriate to adopt crass Duke University style speech codes.

However, irresponsible journalism can hurt by stigmatising the mental ill as likely to be violent, when research shows the opposite is true. Alastair Campbell, formerly Press Officer to Tony Blair ,wrote powerfully in the Guardian about the problems caused by ‘psycho patient’ costumes. Famous Footballer Stan Collymore publicly condemned the costumes, warning of suicides –

These days, most journalists are careful to avoid such images, knowing that their careers may be damaged by using such images and they may cause suicides.
