Selsey School Fire

Dear Mr Bradshaw MP

Please see the following report ref the subject title.

The root cause of this fire is
not yet known but don’t rule out lightning. The speed this fire
spread through the building is most disconcerting as well as the amount
of combustible material. It is also very worrying why so much “EXPLOSIVE
GASES” were stored inside the school.

In light of this fire, is it worth ensuring Devon Schools are safe or are you
too busy plotting against you Leader…..?

Dartington Flagship Eco Friendly School to be demolished

Ben Bradshaw MP Posted on Sun, August 28, 2016 07:12:17

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the following
article ref the Dartington Eco school which is to be demolished because of
leaking roofs.

This was supposed to be a flagship eco-friendly school costing £7million to build. Let’s just do a
little bit of basic arithmetic.

1. Original cost to build £7,000,000

2. Court
Case. £3.000,000

3. New school build. £6.000,000

That’s £16,000,000 – what a waste of public funds.

On top of that we have the
rental charges for the temporary school building and the demolition of the
current school which is only 2/3 years old. It appears to me the Devon County
Council are run by a bunch of buffoons/cheats.

What’s this got to do with me? I hear you cry. Devon County Council comes under your patch so this is another
problem for you, which by the way is included in my recent listing

For your information action and

Yours etc

Raw sewage for young people’s leisure activities

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see the attached photograph of the climbing
competition raft currently sitting in the Exeter Basin which will be used this
weekend by hundreds of young climbers during the annual climbing event on the
Quay. During the climbing competition numerous climbers fall or
jump into the Basin water, which as you are aware is unfit for swimming owing
to stagnant water and raw sewage which is pumped into the basin from a couple of
dozen boats.

After last years competition approx 30 climbers reported
to the RDE Hospital for stomach upsets -quelle surprise.

It beggars believe that the
City and the County Council allow water sports in this filthy basin.

Swimming in such stagnant waters is very dangerous
and could result in death. Dangers include parasite infection,Weils
disease, Primary Amoebic Meningaencephalitis (PAM),etc.

Quite frankly, it beggars belief young people are allowed to swim in this

In the event police divers had to enter the Basin, they
would be given several inoculations to prevent diseases.

I reported this to you last year but you chose to turn a blind eye. You
can probably see this event from your bedroom window; hence, it happening
right under your nose but still you turn a blind eye.

For your information, action
and files

Yours Sincerely

23. Multi Million pound spending by the DCC on FOIA court Cases, schools window designs, Dartington School High court case, Employment Agreements.

premises in Exeter.

I am sure I have forgotten a few other topics but the above list will suffice
for now.

What are you going to do about these matters, continue to ignore me and hope I
will go away or shall we wait until we need body bags before you take me

The main reason why the Labour party got a good trouncing at the last general
election is because Labour MPs such as you have lost their moral compass and
they ignore their constituents and they have turned a willful blind eye to the
art of shadow government.

I fully understand that my main recourse will be via the ballot box but I
intend to hold you responsible for a myriad of health and safety issues, fiscal
irregularities and fraud and theft of public funds by local authorities in

Ignore me at your peril.

For your information, action and files.

Is Ben Bradshaw OK with this?

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please see this response from Devon and Cornwall Police
(DCP) and rule 550 indicates the DCP have imposed a lifetime email ban against
me for reporting crimes regarding theft and fraud of public funds.

I have just received a Meta Data response from the DCP
via Royal Mail and I was attempting to respond to them via email but it would
appear they have banned me.

Please write to the DCP Chief Constable asking for an
explanation why they have imposed a lifetime email ban against me. I am but a
simple layman and I don’t accept that reporting crime to the police warrants a
lifetime email ban.

I wasn’t aware the Devon Police had imposed a email
ban against me but as you are aware a lifetime email ban has been imposed
against me by the Devon CC, HSE; hence, it would appear there is a wider
conspiracy to pervert the course of justice and deny lawful access to FOIA.

With thanks

Yours sincerely.

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Further to my earlier email on
this topic ,I have just noticed 3 serious safety faults with the
Lightning protection test results at the subject title.

1. There is only one earthing (grounding point) on the whole
system, which beggars belief.

2. Surge Protection has not been fitted which compromise
child and teacher safety using the telephone/computer system during a

3. Lightning Risk Assessment on generic RA form and does not comply to BS/EN /62305 requirements. Risk
Assessment shall be site specific.

I fully understand this
school is outside your remit, but it would appear the Devon County Council
are compromising public safety ref thunderstorms

I call upon my MP for urgent action

With thanks

Residential boats discharging raw sewage

Ben Bradshaw MP Posted on Wed, June 29, 2016 19:11:37

Email sent – 28/06/2016 18:03

Dear Mr Bradshaw

Please add this to my long list of complaints which
currently stands at around 38 points.

As a former Environment Minister, I am sure you are
aware that it prohibited to discharge boat holding tanks into rivers, streams

Therefore,can you please advise me why The Devon County
Council turn a blind eye to the fact there is approximately a dozen ”
residential” boats based in the basin which discharge raw sewage into the
basin in the close proximity to the DCC
Water Sports Centre on Haven Banks.

With thanks

Yours sincerely
