Summoned to appear at another CPA review meeting

Mrs Shirley Browne of the Bethnal Green Community Mental Health Team (Tel: 0207 364 1056) wrote to me on the 16 September (letter received 22 September). She is the supervisor of Mr Ramesh Rajoo who normally sends these letters.

This meeting is on the 2 October 2009 at 11:00 to be held at their offices. The letter does not have an address on it, but I know were it is anyway (the Pritchard’s Road Day Centre). Not that it matters because there is no way in hell that I would ever attend such a meeting. An interesting variation is that for the first time it formally acknowledges the involvement of Robbie Forfar of the FTAC.

This is my response:

Dear Mrs Browne & Mr Forfar,

CPA Review – 2nd October, 2009

I presume that you fully understand the request in my last letter to “Please do not attempt to contact me again in anyway whatsoever”. So I take your latest letter as a deliberate insult.

You will not be surprised to learn that I will not be attending. Let me say once again, I shall never attend any meeting at your office or any other, with you, or any other member of the police or NHS.

Let me make my position clear. Your report to the tribunal was flawed because you followed instructions from ‘doctor’ Jonsson to recommend my continued imprisonment. However, the tribunal saw through the lies of Jonsson and totally dismissed your report. The result was that they had no problem ordering my discharge. Furthermore, despite your legal obligations to provide assistance to me when I was discharged from hospital, your department refused to do so. I will not have anything to do with those that abused me.

Given that I will not attend your or anybody else’s offices, I shall now expect you and the police to attempt to abduct me from my home again or take advantage of any opportunity when I leave it. It is truly the mark of an evil fascist state.

Yours sincerely

I expect I shall need the services of a lawyer again soon. Is there anybody out there that can be trusted? The ones that I have experienced so far have either been supporters of Labour (although some have expressed doubts about their support), or have been too afraid to go up against them.

Further examples of political bias in the public sector

The Times today gives more examples of the blatant political bias that is endemic thought the public sector. It exposes how dozens of union officials are employed at taxpayers’ expense.

It reports that “A Whitehall whistleblower has told The Times that union officials spend time on ‘far-left political campaigns”. It also states that they are given free access to office space, computers and photocopiers.

However, these are not isolated examples. The cancer of left-wing political activities and bias is ingrained in the public sector. Any challenge to the divine perfection of the Labour party will be met with all the spiteful vengeance that any one or group of employees can bestow.

I have had personal experience of this from my imprisonment by ‘Doctor’ Ferdinand Jonsson in Mile End Hospital on instructions from the FTAC. The doctors and other medical professionals where selected on the basis political beliefs so that they would make the ‘right’ decision. The tribunal date was deferred until they chair was the wife of a Labour MP. However, that one failed miserably as even a politely biased tribunal saw through his lies and humiliated him with their questions. They had no problem ordering my discharge.

You, yes YOU, have a personality disorder

This page from the Royal College of Psychiatrists will prove it. I defy anyone to look at the details and spot something that might apply to them. For the vast majority of people these are just aspects of their personality; it doesn’t mean that there is anything actually wrong with them. The most successful, or creative, people would clinical cases on the basis of these criteria.

Now look at it another way. If someone pointed out any random individual to you and said, “That person has a personality disorder” you would immediately be fearful and would seek to protect yourself, and, if it was you responsibility, others from them. If the accuser was a medical professional, you would be straight onto the police to have them arrested.

But what if the person pointed to was you? For the safety for the people you have to be arrested and locked up. As we have seen everyone has a personality disorder if those tests are applied to them.

Now imagine the case where a doctor has the objective of detaining someone. The easiest was is to claim they have a personality disorder. Consultant Psychiatrists have an expert knowledge of the supposed criteria for personality disorder and can spin any detail of a person’s life to support one or more of these criteria. Lay people will accept what the doctors say without question. The result is that the subject, it could be you, is indefinitely detained.

This is what happened to me. ‘Doctor’ Ferdinand Jonsson was under instructions to detain me by the FTAC. I had five months of him and his underlings trying to contrive ever wilder interpretations of whatever parts of my life they could find out just to make the criteria fit. If they could not find something to twist then they would fabricate something.

In the end he became a laughing stock in the ward where I was being held. The ward staff ended up believing me not him and refused to comply with his instructions when they wrote the report for my second tribunal. The tribunal itself saw through his lies immediately and ‘Doctor’ Jonsson was humiliated by the panels questioning. In the end the tribunal had no problem ordering my discharge.

I very much doubt that my case is unique.

The FTAC are not accountable to anyone

The Fixated Threat Assessment Centre runs rogue without any scrutiny or means to hold them to account. I have found through my sad experiences how they are free to abduct and abuse anyone they chose without any form of accountability. The IPCC do not investigate complaints involving the FTAC. The same goes for the Parliamentary and Healthcare Ombudsman.

Here are my experiences that illustrate what goes on.

After I was released from imprisonment by the tribunal I began to fight back through conventional means. This has proved futile. Prior to my release I had tried to complain to the Healthcare commission, but that was stonewalled.

Upon my release I began the process of complaining to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) regarding the method of abducting me from my home, the lies they told the hospital, and the five months of abuse I suffered. The complaint was registered with the IPCC on 22 April, 2009 (reference: 2009/007514).

I was sent a confirmation letter from a caseworker called Rebecca Tonge (Tel: 0161 246 8554, Email: rebecca.tonge@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk) dated 27 April 2009. The letter stated that the matter was passed to the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) and I should hear from the police with 14 days. It will come to no surprise to anyone that I heard nothing from them.

The solicitor that represented me at my tribunal might seem an obvious choice to represent me in an attempt to repair the damage that had been done. What a mistake that was. I shall have more to say about the despicable behaviour of Floyd Porter of Miles and Partners (Tel: 020 7426 0400) latter. Amongst the things he did eventually do is send a chasing letter to the IPCC.

I also chased up the complaint to the IPCC, but was told that the police had only received the case notes on the 8th June. Either the police lied about receiving the original notes in April or the IPCC lied about sending them. Anyway, I was told that there was nothing they could do until the DPS finished their investigations. Every week for over a month I send an e-mail to the IPCC to ask on progress and got the same reply from either Simon Keogh (e-mail: simon.keogh@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk Tel: 020 7166 3979), or his supervisor Shetal Patel (e-mail: shetal.patel@ipcc.gsi.gov.uk) i.e. there is nothing they could do until the DPS responded.

So here is an easy way for the police to get away with anything: don’t respond to complaints and the IPCC is powerless to do anything about it and eventually the problem may go away.

However, at the end of July I got a telephone call from a Mr Nick Balmath of Bethnal Green police station regarding my complaint. He asked if I wanted local resolution, which I declined, and said that he would send off the papers to the appropriate office.

On the 1 August I got a telephone call from a Detective Sergeant Brady (Tel: 020 8345 4309). She said that she was the investigating officer. A few days later I received a letter (date: 03 Aug 2009, ref: PC/03312/09) summarising the points of my complaint. I replied immediately correcting a few details in her letter. Since then there has been nothing.

As soon as there is any reference to the FTAC, all complaints are dropped. The FTAC are free to do whatever they want to anyone and nobody holds them to account for there actions.

Update (14 Sep 2009): Last Monday, I e-mailed the complaints department at the IPCC asking for an explanation. A few hours later that day I got a reply from a Mr Douglas Cleaver who claims to be the Head of Internal Complaints promising to respond to my complaint. A week later and nothing has been forthcoming. I sent another e-mail at 9am this morning; there has sill been no response.

My story – Part I

This is the first part of the story of my imprisonment by the FTAC. It covers my arrest and admission to hospital.

On the 10 November, 2008 between 11am and noon the police came banging on my door. This was the begging of a nightmare experience that showed just how evil the Labour regime is.

Earlier that day I had attended a meeting with a job broker called Work Directions. These are part of the nonsense of supposedly helping people get back to work. All their ‘advice’ consisted of was that there is a dark pool of hidden vacancies and all one had to do is send out speculative applications. I said that this was nonsense and that they were useless and left is some distress. On the way home I admit that I was a little in tears; there is no hope of me ever returning to work. After I had left, work directions had telephoned the police reporting my distressed state. After I had got home I put the coffee machine on and changed clothes to do the housework. I got the vacuum cleaner out, but sat to do the e-mail as I had my first cup of fresh coffee.

Then came the knocking on my front door, but I have a policy of not answering my door unless I am expecting a caller; I just ignore them and generally they get fed up and go away. The police were having none of that and carried on banking on my door and it sounded like they were about to break it down. I went to the door and told them to stop banging and to go away. Obviously, they declined that invitation. I had to open the door otherwise they would have broken it down. At which point they stormed in demanding where the gun was. I have never had a gun; I despise the things. The policeman said that they were told that was armed. I said they were talking nonsense and I said that they were free to search for one. Recognising that they could not get away with that lie, the policeman gave up on that line.

We moved from the hallway to my lounge. I sat at my desk and resumed drinking my coffee. The policeman then ‘invited’ me to go with them to a hospital; I declined. In the frank exchange of views that followed the police office said that they could get a warrant to forcibly remove me from my home. I invited them to do so and asked them to leave. The officer made a start towards the door, but halted and retuned. He then said that he wasn’t going to do that, but he was going to arrest me for breach of the peace instead. He told me to put my shoes on quickly and go with them. I asked if I may change my clothes as I was not appropriately dressed to leave the flat (the clothes I was wearing were those I use for housework etc: dirty and worn out), but he refused to let me. I was not allowed to take anything with me, no wallet or any other money, without my distance glasses, no telephone, or anything else. I had my keys and coat at that was it.

The police showed no concern about leaving my flat in a secure condition. The backdoor was unlooked; the coffee machine and other electrical equipment was left running as was the central heating.

I was marched down the stairs and out the main doors of the block. Once outside the building the police officer then said that I was now no longer under arrest for breach of the peace, but now being detained under section 136 of the mental health act. This is a clear abuse of police powers. Section 136 can only be used in a public place, not for removing someone from their home. The police abused the breach of the peace arrest to get be outside so they could use Section 136. I was then thrown into a van and the door slammed on me.

The van drove for some way before arriving at what I assume was Homerton Hospital in Hackney; I was never told where I was. I was kept in a room with two officers for several hours before I was interviewed by some medical person. During that time the police officers decided to confiscate my flat keys. I do not know if she was a doctor or a nurse; frankly I didn’t care. She asked me numerous questions, but I was not very forthcoming with responses. After the questioning finished the police officers left and I was moved to another room and left. There I remained until about 6pm. They would not admit to that hospital. I understand that it was because I did live in Hackney, but Tower Hamlets. Sometime after 6pm I was bundled into a minibus with an escort and driven to the Royal London hospital casualty department.

At the Royal London, after a sometime sitting on benches I was thrown into a room with a security guard outside. There I stayed for well over two hours before anyone bothered to see me. I was interrogated by three doctors. It was clear from their line of questioning that they had been given a false story by the police about where I was when the arrested me and what I was doing. One line of questioning implied that they thought that I was some sort of vagrant because of the state of my clothing. My explanation that those were my clothes used for dirty jobs was dismissed out of hand. It was clear that they were under instructions to detain me. After these doctors were finished I asked if I might go to the lavatory and the doctors agreed. Every time I had asked before, the security guard refused to let me. Even when I was allowed to go the door had to remain open with the guard watching me. I was left for another hour before being moved on to a third hospital.

I arrived at the Mile End hospital sometime after 10pm. I was taken on to a secure ward, dumped in a chair and told to wait. There I stayed for an hour or more before they could find me a bed. At about midnight I was allocated a room. This ward was to be my prison for nearly five months.

At no point during those twelve hours was I offered any food or drink. I had no opportunity to speak to any legal representative. No explanation of what was happening was given. Once someone is detained their human rights are suspended and they can do whatever they want to you.

The next part of the story will detail the first month of abuse I suffered at the hands of Doctor Ferdinand Jonsson. It will cover the personal degradation I was subject to and the lies to the appeal tribunal by Jonsson and the nursing staff.

Doctor confesses to political influence in clinical decisions

An example of the willingness of doctors to comply with political influence in clinical decisions has been exposed today. The case of Abdelbaset Ali Mohamed al-Megrahi yields political scandal on a daily basis. Today, there are reports that bring doubt to the validity that the medical report that was the basis of his release. Professor Karol Sikora, the medical director of CancerPartnersUK has confessed to the Sunday Telegraph, “The figure of three months was suggested as being helpful”. Duly instructed, that is what the report stated. Meanwhile in Tripoli, Megrahi has been moved out of intensive care.

Such behaviour is endemic thought the medical profession, as my experiences have shown. Doctors in the NHS are far too keen to comply with instructions as to what decisions they should make. In my case the FTAC, through the police, instructed the doctors of East London NHS to detain me and they very willingly complied.

The support from members of the public services that the Labour party enjoys makes this even easier for the government. If anyone makes any statement against the Labour government, they have plenty of willing supporters who will use whatever powers they have to act against the complainant. This is especially true within the police and NHS; both have the power to detain people. In the latter case, the poor detainee is stripped of their human rights and very limited right of appeal to a hugely biased tribunal service. That is why the government created the FTAC.
