Dear Mr Stunell

Thanks for your letter.  You must pray for me so that I lose my sarcastic streak.

It is interesting that you have had issues with The Banned at Stockport. The Council has absolutely no idea how many people it has banned (documentary evidence on request).

I shall try to find Mr. Parnell, your constituent, to tell him you will help.  He spends a lot of his time in police cells or court (case dropped by Stockport Council on the day of the hearing last time – he is in court again in January charged with assault with a sneeze with intent to inflict a council employee with a cold – I wonder if that will be dropped on the day of the hearing too).  Ten years it has taken him to navigate Stockport’s complaints system and now he is back to the very beginning again; you really couldn’t make it up.  40 arrests too – probably more by now.

You must have read the worrying letters from aggrieved complainants in the excellent Stockport Express, in particular those from parents of disabled children.  There is something seriously wrong at Stockport.  I am trying to find out if that lady from Stockport who jumped off the Humber Bridge with her autistic son was a victim of the Kafkaesque processes at our council.  There is no data protection for the dead, so I might get to see the documents.

In my own case I was banned for asking questions about the very strange goings on regarding the school on a toxic waste dump which is millions of pounds over budget and rising.  I represent hundreds of local people, which I can prove. My official complaint regarding the funny financial goings-on with regards to that hasn’t even been acknowledged by the Council.  That’s a good way to deal with complaints – ignore them.

Peace and blessings
