Gagging – LAW?

Why should I be ‘GAGGED’ anyway?

(Has the blindfold slipped?)

I oppose the UK government’s new gagging law restricting me from criticising the UK Government – and ask for justice – especially as a ‘lady’ (aka ‘Woman’) representative for ‘Lady Justice’.

If ‘they’ take me to court because of this – it will help me to raise the Ark to help everyone else living in poverty anyway – and if I get shot or have a nasty accident, you’ll know who did it to me now won’t you!  (And the same is also true if this should happen – yet again – to my husband on the other side of the world when I try to raise awareness to our plight here in the UK.)

I’m fed-up of being silenced and imprisoned anyway – albeit a prison made of poverty – and not one forged of rigid metal bars.

To begin with, the Prime Minister David Cameron was wrong when he said that the effects of the recession could not have been anticipated – it was, in 2002, on the BTEC HNC in Building Studies at The College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn, where we were first warned of the predicted effects of this recession – and were also told that the predicted effects of climate change would no longer be merely predictions too.

Those of us lucky enough to be taught by Tony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer, had years to get ahead of the UK Government – and all the bankers too!

(In fact, all the Bankers also had a perfectly adequate time frame to ‘do something’ to prevent all this debt, poverty, and misery too – but they didn’t.)

We ALL knew that the recession was hurtling towards us – like a giant tsunami wave.

So, not only was the PM wrong – but this whole can of worms was already laid bare and completely predictable – albeit perhaps not in the halls of Eton for all the little boys, or in the great halls of Westminster, where-in sat all those little boys with their long trousers ‘playing at politics’ in their playground under the watchtower, (I dare say ‘booing and hissing’ at one another in a very adult fashion)!

So the PM is wrong – and he gagged me so I couldn’t tell you!  (And this I defy!)

Ian Duncan-Smith and George Osborne are also wrong too – because the worst figure people are currently forced to live on in the UK today, is not £53 per week, but actually £6 per week for three adults.

(And yes – I can prove this too! – And will later – in a civil court of law or any other court in any land, anywhere.)

In 2013, I received a letter from HMRC, ‘Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs officers, awarding me just £51.59 per week – for myself, my eldest son and my youngest daughter to live on (per week).

From the figure of £51.59 awarded to me, I was supposed to pay circa £20 for the Broadland Housing Association’s rent, and NNDC Council Tax per week, due to the shortfall in Housing Benefits and Council Tax Benefits awarded to me by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), I was also supposed to pay out circa £15 per week for the electricity, and approximately £10 per week for water and sewage costs, leaving just circa £7 per week for myself, my son and my daughter to live on, (having been awarded a level 2 housing crisis status, and later awarded this Broadland Housing Association House –which forbids me from working from home or using the address for business under the terms of tenure).

And, because I couldn’t immediately see how I could also manage to pay the rent arrears that had accumulated by the time I received the ‘award’ from NNDC, (especially as I wasn’t allowed to work from home under the terms of tenure), Broadland Housing Association/Group started to threaten me with eviction notices, (after my children and I had just been awarded this ‘social housing’ tenure).

Can Ian Duncan-Smith or George Osborne MPs manage drop down from their comfortable salaries of £60,000 per annum (plus £10k annual pay rises) to live on just £7 per week with two dependents?

(I think not!)

It really isn’t possible for three people to live on just £7 per week in the UK in the 21st Century is it – or at least, not when living in housing that is completely unsustainable, when it’s 2.5 miles to the nearest bus stop or shop.

And as for Lord Freud MP saying that ‘all self-employed single parents and sickness claimants live in comfort on a few hundred quid income per annum – without taking any risks’ (in 2012) – he too, is far from accurate in his assumption.

Because that’s all these rich and pompous egotistical men are doing – making assumptions – based on absolutely NO qualifications in the subject of poverty whatsoever.

When Lord Freud MP was saying that we all lived in comfort – my children and I were at the time stuck on a field in North Norfolk.

We had no mains electricity, we had no way of easily accessing either a shower or a bath, (or laundry facilities), and we had no form of internal heating for most of the sub-zero temperatures during ‘the winter of our discontent’ 2012/2013 – having, (during 2011-2012), invested (risked) almost all the small family legacy we inherited, into all the vehicles and equipment we could afford to purchase, in order to (finally) launch our Ark’s fleet of social enterprises, (which were after all – originally designed specifically BECAUSE the effects of this recession and the effects of flooding WERE actually predicted in 2002 by our lecturer).

So Lord Freud MP is wrong – and the only comfort we had (while reading his ridiculous words) – was very ‘cold comfort’ indeed!

My children and I risked almost all that we had in all the equipment we could afford to diversify my rural design practice away from traditional architectural design, with the (final) launch of our Ark social enterprises – designed to showcase and to broadcast, (via ‘Mobile Rural Broadband’), the work of the UK Eco-Village (Network), as a mobile Eco-Village broadcasting unit.

Contrary to Lord Freud MP’s ridiculous blanket statement that ‘ALL self-employed single parents and sickness claimants live in comfort on a few hundred quid income and DON’T TAKE ANY RISKS’, I’m here to let everyone know that Lord Freud MP was WRONG.

So, Lord Freud MP was wrong, IDS was wrong, George Osborne was wrong, and the PM David Cameron was wrong too.

And they can all take me to court for saying this too! – Because it might actually help my case if they do so, especially as I don’t have the £1200 needed to prove this anyway, in our claim for damages against the fraudulent ‘rogue trader’ who robbed us of £13,215.00 for false promises made about the brand new 100% gas propelled V8 4.6 litre engine he promised us.

Chris Crane, the proprietor of RPi Engineering, RPi International, V8 Engines dot com, and ‘Gas Refill’, (who also has an online EBay shop and his own YouTube Channel), lied.

Pre-sales, Chris Crane said he was supplying us with a brand new, technologically advanced 100% gas propelled V8 engine – which he said was NOT a converted petrol engine.

In fact, he was so sure of the engine that he specialised in – that the vehicle in which it was supplied, was supplied without any petrol tank fitted.

Chris Crane said that unlike all converted petrol engines, the engines his company supplied, were specifically designed and engineered to run 100% on gas from new.

(But he lied!)

He also said that the brand new 100% gas propelled V8 engine that his company supplied would be good for at least 200,000 miles – and he lied in that too – because it only lasted just six weeks.

Chris Crane also lied about the fuel consumption – claiming a ridiculously low fuel economy of just the equivalent of a petrol engine running at circa 40MPG – which for a V8 4.6 litre engine, as you might imagine – was one heck of a claim to make, (and it also proved, like everything else he said), to be a downright lie too.

In fact, the 100% gas propelled V8 4.6 litre engine cost circa 273% more to run than quoted pre-sales, (when it actually ran at all).

Plus, pre-sales, Chris Crane also quoted that the V8 4.6 litre engine had so much ‘torque’ that it could virtually tow our three tonne American Prowler caravan over the Pennine Hills in it’s sleep – which was yet another downright lie too.

In fact, the engine supplied by these self-appointed ‘V8 Wizards’ – was nothing more than a cloud of lies – and oil smoke.

So yes, we can absolutely and positively prove that the UK Government was completely wrong in it’s assessment of the banking crisis – and of their assessment and inactivity regarding all the flood damages seen today.

We knew that there would be a housing crisis – we knew that millions of people across the UK would be affected by the housing crisis – and that thousands more would be made homeless by the flooding.

We knew that the UK Government would be in a financial crisis point – and we anticipated that the UK Government would borrow even more money to float all the bankers out of the financial crisis that they’d created.

So why haven’t we said anything before now?

(We did.)

In fact, I’ve been Twittering away for years now – I’ve been spreading the word across the faces @FaceBook, and sharing information with professionals @LinkedIn, I’ve been writing and sharing articles and blogs at as many networking sites as possible, i.e. @WordPress @NewsVine @MySpace as well as @Wiser (Earth) Organisation, @MIT Climate CoLab, @YouTube @SlideShare @MySpace and have profiles @Care2 @Google+

I also have at all my websites including: www.Eco-Designs.net and www.AnEarthMother.com (plus www.Eco-Designs.co.uk until I lost it due to the RPi RiP OFF fraud), a fraud by which I also lost www.globalarkprojects.com www.E-Co-Op.org www.Eco-Ark.org www.TheArkDirectory.com www.theArkAngels.org www.An-Ark-E.org and many other websites and domains.

In fact, I only earned just £700 gross in the 2012-2013 Tax Year – after investing circa £40k into all the equipment purchased to diversify my rurally isolated (eco-architectural) design consultancy with the (intended) launch of our Ark (fleet) of social enterprises.

So with losses circa £39,000 due to the RPi RiP OFF, (after being gagged by the land-owners of the field we were stuck on for eight months), after being forced to walk a two mile round trip each day for drinking water for one week in February 2013 (by the same land-owners), and now being gagged by the UK government – I challenge one and all to take me to court for speaking out.

(How Very Dare They!?!)

After all’s said and done, I had full duty of care and full financial responsibility for my children – who were also robbed in both the RPi RiP OFF – and the UK Government’s (and Bankers Right Royal RiP OFF too).

As I said above, my husband keeps on being attacked on the other side of the world every time I dare to open my mouth too – so if either he gets attacked (yet again), or if I end up in prison, (or get murdered or attacked in the UK), you’ll all now know why, (won’t you)!

Please note that, (between us), we have a perfectly viable proposal for ‘The Green Economy’ that was even invited for submission to MIT Climate CoLab in 2011, by ‘Blindspotting’ James Greyson, Head of Blind Spot Think Tank (social enterprise), also of Wiser (Earth) online community, and MIT Climate CoLab.

Between us all, we’ve done all the work so that you don’t have to.

Our aim was to help people to get out of the ‘poverty trap’ (which we understood all too well ourselves in the first place), by allowing everyone who wanted to, the opportunity they needed to build their own affordable Eco-Homes in their own Eco-Village (type) ‘carbon neutral’ sustainable communities, thus allowing people the opportunity they needed to break free of the poverty they were forced to dwell in by their Government’s cuts – by flooding – and rising costs of living.

In this way, the UK Government itself stood to save circa £Billions per annum – and we stood the opportunity to charge that Government a percentage of the savings provided to them – (((the UK Eco-Village Network)))

(But in order for this to be allowed to happen – first, we need ‘The Land’… I.E.  Chapter 7/TLIO ‘The Land Is Ours’, ‘The Land’ magazine – by Simon Fairlie.)

RPi RiP Off (video evidence) The Saga Continues, (Part 2).

Video

This film documentary footage was recorded the day after RPi Engineering had the Land Rover 110 back in their workshops for three weeks to repair all their faults.

As clearly shown here – even their own mechanic was unable to unlock the front passenger door lock – which, according to proprietor Chris Crane, had, (along with all the other door locks), been replaced with new fittings, and tested to work at least 50+ times in their workshops.

As you yourselves can clearly see as shown here in the evidence – it wasn’t possible to either lock or unlock the doors properly – and this in turn gave rise to a huge security problem as well as an access problem, because IF anyone wanted to steal the vehicle, the doors that didn’t lock properly would have meant that any insurance claim for to cover the theft would be dismissed by the Co-Op insurance company we paid to insure this vehicle, and we’d have been left without a vehicle we paid £13,215 to spearhead the launch of our social enterprise, and we’d also have been left without any way of claiming against the insurers for this loss too.

Surely to goodness, it’s a fundamental basic for a £13k motor to be locked and unlocked successfully!

(Especially when the suppliers themselves knew from the outset that the vehicle was intended for use as an expedition and exhibition vehicle – and would be carrying numerous laptops, LED Projector, projector screen, mobile WiBE 3G Router, Digital Cameras, tripod, books, and camping equipment.)

If we’d been forced to leave the doors unlocked, we wouldn’t just have lost the £13k cost of purchasing this vehicle – we’d also have lost circa £7000 worth of equipment – making it a huge find for any robber, and a huge risk for us, (so big that we really couldn’t risk using it for the purpose for which it was intended for purchase in the first place).

(The Saga continues!!)

Getting it Built

Getting it Built

‘Save the date’ Event – Ely (Norfolk) 9th December 2013.

The UK Government has allocated circa £16Million for Community Land Trusts, (CLTs), for sustainable community living projects – to cover ‘The Land’ with a protective blanket cover, protecting ‘The Land’ for the benefit and use of the community, and providing protection through the terms of the Community Land Trust, ensuring that affordable (eco) homes provided on ‘The Land’ are retained as ‘affordable housing’ in perpetuity.

Previous ‘affordable housing’ (i.e. provided by the Local Authorities themselves), was subsequently sold-off, allowing people who had previously purchased the (previously) affordable homes, to make profits on the resales).

Over the years, the sell-off of affordable housing stock, has earned previous owners profits – but it lost the Council’s money in the long term, (because they are currently having to pay housing benefits to everyone currently living in unaffordable and unsustainable housing).

Across the UK, CoHousing Communities and Co-Op Housing Groups, have formed and built exemplars of sustainable community living projects that can easily be replicated, (and which were designed to be replicated).

Many of the previously formed exemplars of ‘sustainable community living projects’, are also classified as Eco-Village (type) low-carbon and ‘showcase’ communities, (many also forming the UK and North Wales Eco-Village Networks).

The ‘Getting it Built’ event held within Cathedral grounds in Ely, shared information on how communities can apply for the £17Million UK Government Fund allocated for CLTs, (and I will share the links for this in a subsequent report).

I didn’t arrive at the venue until lectures broke for lunch, and had intended to just grab as much information as I could, before heading back to Hindolveston.

As it was, I grabbed a copy of each pile of literature provided on the conference table, and headed back downstairs for a cigarette, while I thought about whether to ask if I could stay for the afternoon sessions.

As I stood outside, I couldn’t help overhearing the conversation of the two gentlemen who were talking by the doorway.

One was saying to the other that they were surprised by the low-uptake of applications for sustainable community living projects, (and CLTs).

I felt I had to interject – having already myself personally had experience of this problem.

Luckily, the two men didn’t seem to mind my interruption – and I explained that the reason why few people were living in sustainable community living projects (i.e. Eco-Villages), was because of the problems associated with finding the ‘Community’ land upon which the community itself could live.

It transpired that I was talking to ‘The Barefoot Entrepreneur’ and a representative of the Rural Community Council, (the RCC at Dereham in fact), to whom I explained my previous encounters and meetings with a RCC officer, who expected me to find ‘The Land’, and then he’d help me to form the proposals.

As I explained to the gentleman from the RCC, as a Group Moderator at the UK Eco-Village Network, and an Ambassador for Imagine Rural Development Initiative (IRDI) in Zambia, with over twenty years experience in the field of architectural design and dealings with Local Authorities in the submission of Planning Applications and applications for Building Regulations approvals, I really didn’t need any help organising the Planning Applications.

I explained that what I really needed, was ‘The Land’ upon which I could form the proposals for a showcase Eco-Village – inspired by CAT Eco-Village, (I explained that my ex-lecturer at The College of West Anglia – just up the A10 from Ely – had warned of the effects of this recession in 2002, not long before he suggested students look at CAT Eco-Village online for inspiration on how to design and build sustainably – and that my ex-lecturer had wanted to partner The College of West Anglia to teach Sustainable Construction and units in Environmental Sustainability – so we intended to be a showcase Eco-Village, providing Norfolk and East Anglia with our own (unique) version of a showcase Eco-Village, (partnered with the local college), to teach people how to design and build their own affordable eco-homes and eco-villages.

The Barefoot Entrepreneur jumped when I mentioned the immortal words ‘Eco Villages’ – and said he would be happy to hear me talk about them all day!! 🙂

He asked me to keep in touch – and it was only when I later opened up the introduction card he passed to me on leaving, that I realised who he was, and the importance of our meeting.

(To be continued.)

I’m afraid that I have to write two introduction pieces – I need to explain the aims of my social enterprises, ‘Global Ark Projects’ (GAP) – seeded by the Tree Ark Project (TAP) intentional (showcase) Eco-Village.

N.B. As we couldn’t get hold of any land – my children and I invested circa £40k of the £45k family legacy we inherited in 2011, in the vehicles needed for us to broadcast the work of the UK Eco-Village Network, the North Wales Eco-Village Network, the Permaculture Organisation, the UK CoHousing Network, Co-Op Housing Groups, Grassroots, Radical Routes, Tony Gosling, Simon Fairlie, Chapter 7/TLIO, Diggers 350, Diggers and Dreamers, WWOOF, Transition Towns, Ivy Farm In Transition, ‘The Global Village Construction Set’ of Open Source Ecology, (OSE), and other nonprofit solutions – including all 80,000 (plus) at Wiser (Earth) organisation, http://www.Wiser.org – whom we aimed to help float, by the launch of Global Ark Projects.

First Class Post – From A Second Class Citizen

As architectural designers, we are required by planning guidelines, to prepare proposals for our clients which meet the proposed predictions of climate change.
As an environmentalist since the age of eight in the 1960’s, I’ve waited a long time for the planning guidelines to reflect today’s reality – which I’d been trying to prevent by peacefully signing petitions for decades.
About 10 or 11 years ago, when my children were toddlers, I explained about the effects of pollution and asked them if they’d like to help try to get President Bush to join the Climate Debate by including their photographs with my own to Friends of The Earth campaign. They did.
In 2008, when clients wanted to get planning approval for 8 acres of unmanaged woodland, again, I asked my children what they thought. (I wouldn’t get paid money for the job, but would get a plot of my own if I was successful in achieving planning consent for the clients.)
I knew that the project would be long & arduous & they’d all have to go without in order that we could get the opportunity we needed to live sustainably. (Without living sustainably economically, Immigration Rules forbid me living with my husband, and this was our only chance.)
Originally finding I couldn’t get any grant monies to cover all my costs, I thought it would all be ok – as there were grants available once you’d got further with the proposals.
Having battled the opposition as I wend my way around the playing field with no backing team – I finally looked up to score – only to discover that ‘they’d moved the goalposts. (Repeatedly!)
Eventually, I realised it was like a tsunami wave – where all the incoming waves cease, as they are pulled back from the shore – before flooding back in, in the most dramatic wave EVER.
Three years on, I’ve been watching the wave of my own economic dynamics continue to ‘go out’ – and, I’m just praying that the tide turns very soon… before I’m homeless with my three children – just because I care about humanity (especially all Earth’s innocent little children), & understand the effects of pollution on our environment.
(I keep thinking – “If I keep doing the ‘right thing’ – then I can’t possibly be doing ‘the wrong thing'”.)
When I get the opportunity to speak, I find that almost everyone I talk to agrees with my sentiments, the only problem is that the purse strings are held by those who don’t communicate.
Hopefully WordPress will provide the platform I need to connect with everyone else who cares.
As a single grain of sand, we are nothing but an annoyance in someone’s eye.
Together we are deserts, & can stop the cog of autonomous machinery in ITs tracks.
Welcome to the Evolution.

Second Class – because I’m a “WO”man – representing children.
