Picture shows one of the alter ego images from Simon JR Mansell MBE facebook page when he was the Council’s Principal Legal Officer and before he became the Council’s Corporate and Misinformation Governance Manager. Mansell being the Council’s main henchman and probably the most corrupt, perverse and intimidating officer the Council has to cover-up its more criminal activities. So much so that the Corporate Directors and Cabinet Members will usually be found cowering in his shadow.

The email Councillor John Pollard and CEO Kate Kennally will not answer.
The following email was sent to Councillor John Pollard and CEO Kate Kennally and all the members of the Cornwall Council Cabinet and 4 Corporate Directors on 22 August 2016.
Dear Councillor John Pollard
The following is in reply to the Council’s email of 16 August which regretfully addressed only selected parts to my email of 11 August 2016.
You say that the Council is able to use its discretion when holding recovery on a council tax account, due to the circumstances I described in my email to the Council on 23 June 2016, and that my account, and therefore Legal Proceedings to recover £680.00 Council Tax for 2016 – 2017 within 7 days, was put on hold.
The problem with the Council’s explanation is that the Council did not advise me it had put my account, and therefore Legal Proceedings, on hold, until it was too late during which I suffered the loss of my employment and my 17 year old business in order to change my circumstances to try and avoid Legal Proceedings being taken against me within 7 days as I was unable to pay the £680.00 in full.
Had the Council offered me more time the amount would have been paid before the end of the 2016-2017 period and I would still be contributing rather than claiming.
The only advice I received from the Council in reply to my original email of 23 June was in the Council’s undeliverable and bogus email dated 29 June 2016, a copy of which I received a month too late. The Council’s only advice being that I should claim Council Tax Support and Housing Benefit, and therefore sign on and close my business, using the application form the Council was sending me and that my Council Tax account had been placed on hold while the application was processed.
You will recall I received a copy of that undeliverable and bogus email from Miriam Laker, Revenues and Technical Officer, on 27 July and which accompanied her overdue reply to a formal complaint I lodged on the Council’s website on 13 July 2016, by which time it was too late to reverse the loss I suffered.
An undeliverable email I claim was bogus because the Council received no delivery failure message from BT on 29 June 2016 despite me receiving a delivery failure message from BT when I tried the erroneous email address, and the Council’s recent decision not to ask BT to investigate and explain the failure. The bogus email was also unlike any layout or format I have ever seen or received from the Council before and I still find it remarkable that Miriam Laker did not simply think I must have overlooked the email and just needed to be reminded of it rather than think I may not have received it in sending me a copy of it.
So what’s it all about ?
I believe all this was part of a campaign of abuse and intimidation upon me by the Council and its partners to cause me as much grief and distress as humanly possible to try and bring about the closure of my business and website which the Council and its various partners have unlawfully attempted to do since 2011.
I offer a very brief summary of the last 8 months, the “cruel irony”, which will explain why I was finding it so difficult to make full Council Tax payments in May and June 2016, and which I believe was orchestrated and coordinated by the Council and involved its partners the Cornwall Foundation Trust and Sanctuary Housing, amongst others.
In November 2015 the police visited my home a number of times and arrested me in December in response to false allegations made against me by a Trust solicitor and an employee of the Trust to cover-up and protect criminality by the Council and the Trust.
Also in November 2015 Sanctuary Housing, my corrupt landlord, began making false representations that I owed “Rent Arrears” and which involved an Escrow account, and which the Council was advised of in writing on 27 June 2016.
The culminating affect of the criminal charges against me by the Trust and 2 court appearances, the threat of Civil Legal Proceedings by the Trust, and 2 further threats of Legal Proceedings by Sanctuary Housing for £189.18 and by Cornwall Council for £680.00 Council Tax within a few days of each other in June 2016 caused me much distress, anxiety, ill health and lost earnings and which was I believe precisely what the 8 month campaign of abuse and intimidation was meant to achieve. All this and much much more for me to deal with within a short time span of 8 months.
I don’t think any reasonable person would doubt my unlawful arrest in 2015 was orchestrated and coordinated by the Council and which involved the same corrupt Devon and Cornwall Police which unlawfully arrested me in 2012, and which then involved the Council’s housing partner Sanctuary Housing, and which resulted in 4 officers being reprimanded by the IPCC but which the IPCC failed to determine why the officers did what they did and if more senior officers were involved.
One further example is the 3rd Anniversary of my wife’s death on the 27 June 2013 and just 4 days after the Council’s threat of Legal Proceedings for £680.00 Council Tax, and the main reason behind my defence of Extreme Provocation in 2015.
You will recall it was my mentally ill wife Alison, whose health was deteriorating and which the Council acknowledged, who the Council and the Trust unlawfully abused, cheated and neglected with its rigged Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessments in 2012 and before she died some 8 months later.
You will also recall that a few hours before she died Sanctuary hand delivered a repossession order as a result of confidential information the Council shared with Sanctuary as to when would be the best time to serve the repossession order involving an earlier Escrow account.
Confidential information because my late wife was neither a tenant of the Council or Sanctuary and that her state of health had nothing to do with my landlord.
A repossession order which resulted in an order to attend Bodmin Magistrates Court a week before Christmas 2013, just like the order to attend Bodmin Magistrates Court a week before Christmas 2015.
The problem with the Council’s campaign of terror, abuse and intimidation upon me and which began in 2011 in response to the “40 days of Hell” blog involving criminality, harassment and ring-fencing by the Council and Sanctuary, is that your corrupt and underhanded methods of dealing with me have never actually ever achieved or resolved anything other than create even greater problems for the Council and its partners to deal with such as the mountain of evidence that now exists following my arrest in 2015. Evidence that will continue to cause much damage, discomfort and embarrassment to all those involved for many years to come.
I propose the Council gets rid of its corrupt and bullying Simon JR Mansell MBE, who I believe is the main orchestrator behind most of the above willful abuse upon me, and make good what it did to my late wife in 2012, and what it has since done to me.
If the Council cannot do this then I think it inevitable that I will continue to engage in free speech and in the public interest, I will again be arrested, I will have my day in court next time and that the Council, its partners and others will be scrutinized and judged accordingly.
Please ensure CEO Kate Kennally receives a copy of this email and please confirm she has received it before this coming weekend.
The email was replied to within hours by Simon JR Mansell MBE who suggested I take my concerns up with the Local Government Ombudsman, knowing the LGO does not have the jurisdiction to also investigate Sanctuary Housing, the Trust, Devon and Cornwall Police, Coodes Solicitors, and the CPS, who all played a role in perverting the course of justice during the 8 month period referred to in the email.
I received no confirmation by the weekend as to whether or not the Council’s CEO had been provided with a copy of the above email so I will assume the CEO did.
Most of the Corporate Directors and Cabinet Members have been aware for years of the rigged Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessments which unlawfully abuse and cheat the mentally ill and the vulnerable, aided by a very cruel and callous Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust, and the unlawful practice of ring-fencing Homechoice advertised properties without a preference and which abuse and deceive Homechoice bidders and create covert toxic communities. Issues which Mansell is also fully aware and has done his very perverse to cover-up.
Let me be clear, the parasites named below would have had to have been pretty deaf, dumb, blind and stupid not to have known what has gone on and precisely why they are complicit.
Corporate Directors : Kate Kennally, Paul Masters, Trevor Doughty and Cath Robinson.
Cabinet Members : Councillors John Pollard, Adam Paynter, Jeremy Rowe, Jim McKenna, Andrew Wallis, Geoff Brown, Bert Biscoe, Edwina Hannaford, Julian German, Joyce Duffin.

Cornwall Council – Close your Business and claim Benefits
When Cornwall Council orchestrated my arrest in late 2015 to cover-up and protect joint criminality by itself and the Cornwall Foundation Trust, the Council also got its corrupt housing partner Sanctuary Housing to make false allegations I owed “Rent Arrears” at the very same time.
During the 8 months which followed the police set me up, edited the recorded interview and withheld information it should have provided me under the Data Protection Act. My defence was organised by the Council/police so I could not win and any incriminating evidence against Cornwall Council, the Trust and Sanctuary Housing was removed.
I twice attended court and ended up with a Restraining Order for 2 years. During this time I was subjected to monthly rants by a Trust solicitor and I was threatened with civil legal proceedings by the Trust, and I was later threatened with Legal Proceedings by Sanctuary Housing for the false and harassing allegation of “Rent Arrears” and I was also threatened with Legal Proceedings within 7 days by Cornwall Council for Council Tax a few days later in June 2016.
The culminating affect of all this led to reduced earnings and to the closure of my business and to me signing on to avoid the Legal Proceedings by the Council within 7 days. Although the Council had an opportunity and discretion to offer me more time to catch up with the 2016 – 2017 Council Tax payments so I could continue to contribute rather than claim benefits the Council opted only to advise me to claim Council Tax Support and Housing Benefit with an application form it sent me. This in the hope it would lead to the closure of my website and blogs which both the Council and Sanctuary have wanted closed since before 2012 when four police officers were reprimanded by the IPCC following my earlier unlawful arrest and which was also orchestrated by Cornwall Council to cover-up and protect criminality involving itself and Sanctuary Housing.
Although I have all the evidence I need to prove harassment by Sanctuary Housing it would mean reporting it to a police force which has already proven itself to be biased and corrupt in protecting only Cornwall Council and its various partners in crime.
The Council’s only response to the above is that I should take it up with the Local Government Ombudsman who I have twice previously dealt with and who I am again reminded of in the following quotation :
The Local Government Ombudsman – “Operate the most perverse and publicly criticized system of administrative justice in the world”, unquote. I couldn’t agree more as would most of those in Parliament if they were honest enough.

Since 2012 hundreds, possibly thousands, of mentally ill and vulnerable Homechoice applicants have been abused and cheated by Cornwall Council and the Cornwall Foundation Trust as a result of rigged Cornwall Homechoice Welfare Priority Assessments. Cornwall Homechoice advertised properties without a preference are also ring-fenced and allocated for the Council’s certain types despite applicants bidding for them.

THE ABUSE & DISCRIMINATION OF THE MENTALLY ILL IN CORNWALL
When Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust paid a support worker to put his signature against being the “Mental Health Team Representative” on the Cornwall Homechoice Welfare Assessment Panel Form on 16 October 2012, he committed an act of fraud according to the NHS Trust and the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman, who have both stated the NHS Trust support worker was not acting in an NHS capacity whilst he was a Panel Member.
That when Cornwall Council described the support worker as a “Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN)” in writing Cornwall Council lied.
That when Rachel Lytham, Cornwall Council Homechoice Representative, stated on the Cornwall Homechoice Welfare Assessment Panel Form for 27 November 2012, “Need information from Mental Health Professional re Mrs McL condition”, unquote, Ms Lytham confirmed the paid NHS Trust support worker was not a Mental Health Professional and was not suitably qualified to be a Panel Member in accordance with Council Policy, or in the interest and wellbeing of applicants with mental illness and mental disorder.
That when Lytham further confirmed in writing on 6 November 2012 that the support worker was a “representative” from the “Mental Health Team” on the 16 October 2012 Welfare Panel, in contradiction to the advice given to the PHSO by the NHS Trust, either Lytham lied on behalf of Cornwall Council or the NHS Trust lied to the PHSO.
Although the PHSO, Mellor’s Mercenaries, had over 6 months to find out in what capacity the NHS Trust paid support worker was a Panel Member on 16 October 2012, willful blindness prevented them doing so, even in the interest of justice and the wellbeing of the mentally ill in Cornwall.
When Lytham further confirmed each member of the Panel on 16 October 2012 had heard the contents of Dr Hereward’s letter in support of my late wife’s application, along with other critical evidence, Lytham was also confirming the NHS Trust paid support worker was not suitably qualified to consider or support Dr Hereward’s letter or recommendations in the best interest and wellbeing of his patient, my late wife, and why no Referral or a Home Visit was arranged despite provision for it on the Panel Forms and despite references to her deteriorating health.
That the Welfare Assessment rigged decision of ‘Low Priority’ was callous, unfair and unjust and which only left my late wife, whose deteriorating health and failures of care and support by the NHS Trust had brought about the Assessments, isolated in her home and without any chance of her having her recognised Carer, myself, caring for her under the same roof up until she died the following year.
Even the criminally perverse LGO implied my late wife did qualify for Medium Priority, despite the LGO applying willful blindness not to acknowledge Council Policies had been abused and abandoned at the Welfare Assessments. This to protect Cornwall Council from a decision of Maladministration.
That Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Cornwall Council Senior Management and employees have willfuly contributed to the abuse, negligence, suffering and the death of my late wife. The LGO and PHSO have only added insult to injury.
That the PHSO and LGO were only interested in applying absolute discretion to protect eachother, the NHS Trust, and Cornwall Council before the public interest, and relying on the heavy cost of judicial review to protect themselves from the only remaining victim, myself, who relies upon Tax Credits. That Cornwall Council and the Cornwall Partnership NHS Foundation Trust continue only to perversely protect each other as they have done ever since the rigged Welfare Assessments in 2012.
The most obvious question none of the above professional parasites have yet answered is this – If the NHS Trust paid support worker was not acting in an NHS capacity whilst he was a Panel Member, in what capacity was he a Panel Member ? And is the NHS Trust and Cornwall Council not abusing and discriminating against the mentally ill and the vulnerable in not providing a Mental Health Professional on the Welfare Panel ?
Cornwall Council’s professional employees (6) on the 3 Welfare Panels, who I allege were all party to rigged Welfare Assessments, are presently the subject of a blog titled “Defamation or Intimidation” which has been repeated on social media almost 100 times to date. The support worker is included because it was the Council who advised the NHS Trust to close my NHS complaint against him.
That if Cornwall Council was prepared to take me to court for Defamation for naming just 2 employees on social media it must take me to court for naming all 6 employees in the above blog. Cornwall Council has yet to take any action against me which probably means it’s letter of defamation was intended only to intimidate and, as such, only confirms it’s 6 corrupt employees are as corrupt as I continue to say they are, or more accurately Cornwall Council and the NHS Trust are as corrupt as I say they are.
One way or another I will have my day in court.
Follow-up : In December 2015 I was arrested because of the ‘Defamation or Intimidation’ blog by an NHS Trust solicitor and one other to cover-up and protect Cornwall Council and the Trust. The blog was referred to in recorded interview but was later edited out by the Police. The only evidence shown at the trial was a copy of the ‘Defamation or Intimidation’ blog. I believe the author of the original and unsigned ‘Letter of Defamation’ was the Council’s then Principal Legal Officer and chief bully boy Simon JR Mansell MBE and who I believe orchestrated my unlawful arrest.

Reply to Police and Crime Commissioner Hernandez regarding Chief Constable Sawyer.
The following is a copied and pasted reply sent to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office, and others, on 16 August 2016 in response to the Commissioner’s reasons why she cannot investigate my complaint of 08 August 2016 against Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer of Devon and Cornwall Police. I quote :
Dear Ms Martin
I refer to you earlier email.
As you know my dissatisfaction with the Chief Constable in 2015 was prior to and separate from the official complaint I lodged with Police and Crime Commissioner Hernandez in August 2016 which was in response to the abuse and unlawful events which happened after my arrest in December 2015 and into 2016.
Had the Chief Constable or Crime Commissioner Hogg, or others, intervened in 2015 when they had an opportunity to prevent matters becoming corrupted again like 2012, resulting in the “conflict of interest” in 2015, the unlawful events leading to my official complaint to the Police and Crime Commissioner on 08 August 2016 could have been avoided.
I would also remind you that it was Chief Constable Sawyer himself who personally directed a corrupt PSD to investigate my complaint against Devon and Cornwall Police lodged with the IPCC in 2016, knowing that it was the very same PSD which had engaged in a whitewash and a cover-up in 2012, when 4 officers were reprimanded by the IPCC but which it failed to determine why the officers did what they did or if more senior officers were involved. Senior Officers who may also have been involved in my unlawful arrest in 2015 and under the responsibility of Chief Constable Sawyer.
Whilst I appreciate the Police and Crime Commissioner would like nothing more than to assist the Chief Constable and Devon and Cornwall Police, and the IPCC, railroad and bury this whole sordid affair, it isn’t going to happen.
I also believe another conflict of interest exists with the new Police and Crime Commissioner feeling obliged to protect her predecessor’s judgement when he ignored my written concerns and which then resulted in even greater abuses and criminality upon me in 2015 into 2016, than was identified in 2012.
I find your email on behalf of Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez a disturbing development and one that serves only to further cover-up corruption and criminality rather than resolve it and in the public interest.

Dear Mr McLaughlin,
Thank you for your email to the Police and Crime Commissioner.
Your complaint relating to Chief Constable Sawyer was looked into by this office last December. As per our letter to you dated the 21st December 2015, after an initial scoping exercise there was no evidence to suggest that Chief Constable Sawyer has had any personal involvement or even any personal knowledge of your concerns.
In order to uphold a complaint against a Chief Constable under the police complaints process it is necessary to show that the issue lies with the Chief Constable’s personal conduct not the officers under his direction and control.
You did have the right to appeal the decision of this office to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). Unfortunately there is no further route of appeal through this office, I understand that you might find this unsatisfactory.

Dear Crime Commissioner Hernandez
Re : Complaint against the Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer of Devon and Cornwall Police.
You are aware of most of the issues I have with Chief Constable Sawyer by way of emails to the Chief Constable and others which your office has been copied into.
Briefly that Chief Constable Sawyer, on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police, is continuing to abdicate his responsibilities and his Duty of Care to me and the wider public by denying me an independent and impartial investigation by another police force. That by empowering officers of the same ‘dodgy’ Professional Standards Department (PSD), which actively engaged in a whitewash and a cover-up of my unlawful arrest and treatment in 2012, involving 4 officers being reprimanded by the IPCC, that a ‘Conflict of Interest’ exists.
You should also be aware that I was in contact with your predecessor and others prior to my arrest in 2015, and after, in an attempt to stop Devon and Cornwall Police arresting me and abusing my rights again. That Chief Constable Sawyer must accept full responsibility for the avoidable abuse upon me which followed on and after 03 December 2015 and that he has since knowingly attempted to pervert the course of justice by empowering others to cover it up, reduce and limit the full extent of what has gone on and under his leadership.
I was pleased to read that you care about Civil Rights and Social Action because that is precisely why I was arrested in 2012 and in 2015, and in the public interest, and that I have never been treated as being innocent until proven guilty by Devon and Cornwall Police as the catalogue of incompetence and corruption in 2012 and 2015 demonstrate.
Please let me know where we go from here.
