[Rotten] Thick As Legal Thieves

Posted by Lex Fear on October 2, 2006

“There is something interesting about the power of money, and the blindness of the middle class to the plight of the poorest in society.”

I was saving this to write something more full-blown, but time seems to be speeding up to my impending trip. So here’s something short but should still have an impact on you.

The BBC recently conducted one of their undercover expose’s into the murky world of bailiffs. The results were as I expected, shocking but not surprising. Which begs the question, will the government ever do something about the abuse of power that goes on in this country?

[Me Against The World] Events Conspire

Posted by Lex Fear on September 21, 2006

Only just got over the Blogger Beta disaster… and I have now lost my broadband connection at home! This is due to the fact I ordered TalkTalk free broadband 2 months ago and they have only just got round to connecting.

They’ve booked me in to go live on October the 2nd, but my current provider pulled the plug yesterday. It’s not even worth my while subscribing to a hotspot- it would cancel out the benefit of the free broadband. So I am now consigned to using a mixture of the wireless network at work (which means staying at my desk late) or using a dial-up connection at home.

It wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for the fact I’m only going to enjoy the new wireless connection for a week and a half till I leave for Hawaii. Then I have to start all over again with another broadband provider in November.

I will try to blog, but it won’t be as regular now, and I don’t think I will be able to resume a more regular blogging pattern till mid November at the earliest.

Storm clouds are gathering… I am hoping to find a way out of this £45 parking fine I have been fighting for the last 5 months (where I will get £45 now I don’t know so I am only able to continue dialogue now with the courts), I’m hoping it gets to 6 months so it will time out- providing the courts see it that way (the issue has already been brought to them once and sent back to the police). Part of the difficulty is that in less than a months time I will be away for a month- if they send a letter for court appearance during this time I won’t get it. This could get ugly.

I still have my outstanding tax bill, I have yet to be able to contact Inland Revenue and ask them to spread out the payment- if they will let me. Sure when I start the job I’ll be able to cover all this stuff but it seems like events conspire to head me off at the pass- try and bury me before I get to solid ground.

At least things are going in the right direction… marraige, new job, more money… eventually. What we are counting on right now is enough money to carry us through for the month I don’t get paid between jobs, finding accomodation in London and the last part of the wedding plans coming together.

I’ve been blessed, God has raised me out of some incredibly difficult situations, he will continue to do so. My resolve is only strengthened against earthly authorities and critics, since I answer to a higher power.

[PR Exercise] Patron Saint of Sport

Posted by Lex Fear on June 23, 2006

Tony Blairs pledge to become a patron of a London Community Sports club is near its deadline.

At the time of this post he has 48 people signed up, 3 of which also signed up for a pledge to form a human chain around Westminster no protest zone (currently 1028 of 6000 signed up). Perhaps Tony will consider joining that pledge instead?

Interest seems to have plateaued now, possibly due to speculation that it’s merely a PR exercise. but some of the pre-(local) election comments are hilarious:

“…the track record for sticking to pledges, even ones made in manifestos, isn’t that great for Tony is it?” Duncan Drury at 12:33, Wednesday 5 April.

“I plan to honour my pledge by building a website for the club and promoting them heavily via grass-roots PR. I am open to approaches from any club involved in any kind of sport, but they must be willing to understand that we will be playing a new game with new rules; my rules. I would require my adopted team to wear orange jumpsuits as their uniform *and* play while wearing iron shackles on their legs and bags over their heads. The training programme will be rigorous… it will push local, national and international laws to their limits and – when nobody’s looking – it will go way beyond these petty constraints. Of course, officially, all training will be by the book. For example… no-one will actually drown as a result; they will merely enjoy the repeated sensation of drowning…” Tim Ireland at 00:26, Thursday 6 April.

“Yes, I would rather the PM didn’t bother, because if I were a member of a sport club that he became a patron of, I would leave it, and the same goes for Livingstone and Jowell” Sam Hayes at 23:21, Wednesday 5 April.
