Dear Mr Stunell

I note your recent comments in the press about people being sent to prison unnecessarily. I wonder if you would like to comment regarding the three days spent in HMP Forrest Bank by Mr. Parnell, our gentle, peaceful town hall protester who has being trying to get corrupt LibDem-run Stockport Council to give his troubled adopted daughters some help for over a decade without success.

Come on Mr. Stunell, use that overstaffed, overclaimed for office of yours and send a reply.  Please feel free to fold it on the £9,000 folding machine claimed on expenses.

LibDem councillor spouts the corrupt council version without checking anything

Dear Councillor White

There was no spitting incident as I understand it  and no evidence of mucus on the security guard.  We shall see how the court case pans out and get the transcript under the FOI if possible.  If the Council drops it again further wasting police and court time, I assume there will be no doubt it was all lies and compensation payments will large.

You seem to treat political opponents, whom I assume don’t agree with you, with contempt in the local newspaper.

Can you justify the police having been called 64 times to Mr. Parnell, once I believe in response to his making a comment from the public gallery at a full council meeting that Councillor Derbyshire had sneezed and should be arrested?  No-one from the Council would even wait after the meeting for the police arrive and Mr. Parnell had to wait alone outside for the police to come to explain why they had been called, so as not to further waste police time.

I think as an Executive Councillor of a Council which has been unreasonably harassing a peaceful protester and who was informed twice at public meetings what was going on, then, of course, you are involved.

I hope to obtain evidence from the police and the courts under the FOIA of this utter and malicious waste of police and court time, and will hopefully expose this in the press.

As further evidence of this rotten borough council, when it was pointed out at the last full council meeting that the names, addresses and signatures of questioners had been up on the Council’s website for months, no action was taken to correct that Data Protection abuse and remove those details till the following Monday afternoon, and even then this was only done because a council taxpayer affected contacted the police and the Information Commission.  At that meeting were all the senior council officers, executive councillors – even one who worked in a senior position at the Data Protection arm of the Information Commission, yet no-one took anything seriously because basically no-one senior at the Council ever listens to the public.

I think the contempt I feel for LibDem councillors and MPs, always spouting their concern for the environment yet simultaneously wanting to put a £1billion bypass through the Goyt Valley, is very justified.

With warmest best wishes

Having heard the Security Guards view of the event I am disgusted by this “inflicting and a cold”, my description would be very different and Council staff should not be subjected to this.

Spitting on someone is not a “gentle, peaceful” act.

If he has been arrested, I have neither been involved or partaken in the event.  Let justice take its course.

Like yourself you are entitled to your opinion but you treat people who don’t agree with you with contempt and never listen to them.

Dear Councillor White.

How can they lack one thing among many? 

I sent you masses of evidence over Harcourt Street – I don’t suppose you bothered to read any of it.

I asked at the Executive meeting twice about him. Maybe you had nodded off.  I gave all Executive councillors the chance to condemn what was being done to him.  Not one did.

He has had the police called to him 64 times.  He is in court on May 14th charged with assault with a sneeze with intent to inflict a council employee with a cold. He has been taken to court before by the  Council only to have the case dropped on the day it was to be heard.  He is a gentle, peaceful man.  I don’t suppose you have ever taken the trouble to actually talk to him.  A High Court judge has ruled that he mustn’t have his case heard by magistrates, as they won’t be impartial.  So his case is to be heard by a judge.

Suicide is a possibility for him and his daughters – the compensation costs would be massive, never mind the toll of human misery.

Take the trouble to find out – I pay you enough.

Your emails always just lack one thing, among many.

I don’t know about Mr Parnell, my only dealings with him have been his appearing at my Area Committee asking a public question.

Dear Executive Councillors

I have twice in the past drawn your attention to what is happening regarding Mr. Parnell. All of you refused to express any concern whatsoever.

Please see the attached. I would appear there is a legal right to peaceful protest.  I think the damages the Council will have to pay Mr. Parnell will be huge for the 64 times the police were called and his repeated stay in police cells.  I assume your insurers won’t cover this illegal activity, as they have financial problems of their own, and that this compensation will have to come from council taxpayers’ money.

What a shame none of you acted to stop this abuse within reasonable timescales.

I hope neither Mr Parnell nor his daughters commit suicide, which is a possibility; in that tragic eventuality the Council will have to pay out tens of millions of pounds.

Yours in disgust at what you allow to continue in this rotten borough.

Yippee, the LibDems are not taking back control of Stockport. Faces like smacked bottoms though ;o)

How much did all this cost in police, court, CPS, barrister man hours?

Uncategorised Posted on Thu, May 20, 2021 17:05

Constable Cub outside Fred Perry House. If Mr Parnell was arrested by the LibDem councillors calling the police and was taken to the police station in Fred Perry House, he faced a possible 5 years in jail for entering Fred Perry House – a completely innocent man framed by the Stockport LibDems.

His legal right to counselling for his lovely young daughters who had had a terrible time with their birth parents. They were getting counselling, but despite Stockport Council having received of £600,000 to fund such services, their counselling from After Adoption was stopped.

Mr Parnell asked for a decade for help for his daughters (well this is normal for Stockport) without any response. So he decided to stand on the town hall steps, sometimes night and day, until the councillors/council officers did what they were paid large sums of money for and which he had a legal right to. They continued to simply ignore him. His lovely daughters were more and more in need of help. Sometimes young people who have had a difficult life take longer to grow up.

Local people claimed four footpaths over the site which the Council had to divert.

Uncategorised Posted on Thu, May 13, 2021 19:01

I objected as I didn’t know whether the footpaths would be diverted into areas of contamination. For the public inquiry to look into this, and for the public inquiry only and not for the safety of the children, they finally did the contamination investigations demanded by the Environment Agency.

The entire site was contaminated with lead, arsenic and blue asbestos.

“It is inconceivable that the school would actually be built following “failure to detect toxics” – the tests were obviously unreliable especially having failed and caused the reckless plans to go ahead.  By then the financial aspects of this new project were too great to resist, especially backed by the extraordinary claim by the Council that the old industrial tip site could be made safe and used.

The Council had commissioned soil tests and found no contamination! There was the influence of the Government grant of £2.2 million already in the till and even spent on something else.  But more soil tests, only carried out because the Council had to prove to a diversion of footpath public inquiry that the site was not contaminated found a variety of chemicals – lead, arsenic and brown asbestos. What on earth were the previous experts – Greater Manchester Geological Unit –  doing to have missed all this or should the question be who was in the pocket of whom?

Contracters then sifted the deadly material by hand – 

Come on!  How could they recognise the material, especially when the experts couldn’t?

The excellent local MP Andrew Gwynne said they were spending money to save face because the site had to be used.

Councillor Mark Weldon stated the Council had “no responsible alternative”.  Well I never!  Responsible to whom?  Certainly not the council taxpayers.

Follow the money”!
