Save @NormanScarth #WWII Veteran and #McKenzieFriend from CPS, WYP and ICO

16 05 28 Norman ScarthNorman Scarth was a remarkable horse whisperer and has recently celebrated his 90th birthday in Ireland. He fled his native country to be safe from another period in prison or mental hospital, where his enemies would like to see him – for no good reason at all – except negative attitudes such as abuse of power and position – “because they can.”

In this online petition directed at the Prime Minister, Alan Dransfield is asking for a Public Inquiry into the Information Commissioner’s Office [ICO], West Yorkshire Police [WYP] and the Crown Prosecution Service [CPS] regarding Norman’s appalling treatment.

Norman’s experiences are in one life what I’ve observed in soo many victims who had to act as Litigant in Person [LiP] because the legal profession was not supportive. As a result, they became starfighters, campaigners, McKenzie Friends, McKenzie Angels, activists and Public Interest Advocates. Hence these responses to the Judiciary’s Consultation about reforming the courts’ approach to McKenzie Friends.

  • The biggest betrayal is surely to be let down by your employer after having fought a war – but Norman is far from being alone;
  • Police staff are exploited similarly, I hear – yet only a few dare to come out or leave;
  • the abuse of psychiatry in the UK legal system has just been presented at a conference by poisoned pilot Len Lawrence from personal experience;
  • it takes one to know one: Norman’s McKenzie Friend Alan Dransfield has been challenging the Information Commissioner’s Office over and over again, as documented on his blog and discussed on this post; he defends the Freedom of Information Act as our critical tool as legal remedies against national authorities have been removed from the Human Rights Act [Article 13];
  • but it takes a lot of personal experience to believe what is “too bad to be true”: deep corruption of professional oaths, spiritual values, morals or ethics.

Is the decency of humanity at stake? In the UK more than elsewhere?

I’ve been treated as a ‘criminal suspect’, for exactly the reason we’ve been campaigning for: imprisonment by a secret family court. Hence I know about collusion between CPS and Police for cover-ups and stitch-ups, whilst advocating Open Justice online: websites and petitions as voices for the voiceless.

Alan Dransfield knows about the Information Commissioner’s Office from personal experience.

It appears that social media and online petitions are our biggest opportunity to change an archaic system of control by intimidation and compliance – not to Human Rights though… Will you be an armchair activist and click to sign the Save Norman Scarth petition?

  1. It was WEST Yorkshire Police (not SYP) who committed serious crimes against me.
    Though, to be fair to them, they were doing the dirty work at the request of, & on behalf of, the Legal/Judicial Mafia, each protecting the other. .
    South Yorkshire Police are now condemned for the cover-up of Hillsborough.
    That cover-up by SYP was to save their own skins, which was understandable, if not excusable.
    Though the consequences have not been as dramatic, the MOTIVES for the brutal attacks on me by WEST Yorkshire Police were FAR worse.
    Those attacks were deliberate & with malice!

    Thanks Sabine for your further support ref my petition to save Norman Scarth and so sorry Norman I got the wrong police authority.
    I do hope people will sign this petition and deseminate to their friends

    Personal experience is definitely the key! The decency of humanity? Not sure if it is decency or not. I am kind of tough on this one. Indifference is not decency. Indifference is “I don’t give a damn!” To be clueless is a choice, not an accident. I being a USA citizen who knows and understands the true history of his nation, knows that he was rather lucky to have inherited a society that more than most in the world, is aware of things like rights, freedom, justice, independence, self-reliance, etc. Keep in mind that such are still a minority in the USA, but still a larger minority than probably any other nation due to so many fleeing their homelands of Europe for a bit more opportunity and freedom than they had in Europe. So my answer would be that the UK is the opposite of the USA, relatively speaking. In the UK, you go along with whatever and do not rock the boat if you know what is good for you. Everything has been bought and sold in the UK at least since 1066 AD. That’s nearly a thousand years of entrenchment.

    But here in the USA, we who use our minds are under careful watch, they will not put up with us indefinitely. Our day is coming. Not that we deserve it, but we are in “their” way and they don’t like that here any more than some in the UK do not like it, either.

    My opinion is that voices of integrity are few compared to what they should be. While there are people of integrity, they are not many and the human race does leaven a bit much to be desired. I have to be honest, as creatures with potential intelligence, I would have expected a little more.

  4. The days of the individual are numbered unless Mr & Mrs Everyone wakes up to the insidious take-over that is creeping through so much of Europe and the world like some malignant malaise. Slowly but surely the idea of freedom of spirit is being smothered by the Establishment as surely as freedom of speech has been by political correctness.

    First impressions lull the public into thinking that not being allowed to say hurtful things is good – until you realise that you are no longer allowed to say ANYTHING – even to criticise the things that are absolutely wrong; as the well-intentioned whistleblowers have discovered. If the bureaucrats get their way, all of us will be gagged, and consequently bound by bands of red tape that will effectively silence all criticism. The EU and UN, ostensibly agencies for so much good, are proving no match for such as Common Purpose graduates who operate within all organisations with the sole aim of ruling with ruthless efficiency. TTIP will soon be another string to their bow if Obama’s America has its way .

    It’s been happening in such a stealthy manner, no one is aware until the truth becomes reality. Most people have no need to question the system, which is why reality comes as a nasty shock when life suddenly runs up against the bureaucratic buffers; then the only ones smiling are the lawyers and members of the legal profession viewing each new case as cats might view bowls of cream; licking their lips as each new milch-cow hovers into view to be filed and packaged as new sources of on-stream income.

    Thank heaven for those who, like you Sabine, challenge the Establishment and bring hope to those who feel washed-up and left high-and-dry. Rallying to a common cause is not new, but it’s comforting to have a seasoned campaigner at the helm. Bravo! The personal cost has been high I know, but long may you prosper.

    I strongly suspect there will never be an inquiry into the saga of Norman Scarth for the very same reasons that there will never be meaningful inquiries into other misdeeds by people and organisations of a nefarious nature. We can see as examples child abuse, illegal wars, WMD, demolition of the WTC, Dr David Kelly, Jean-Charles de Menezes, the Northern Ireland untruths and many other unaccounted for incidents. .. .. and ‘They’ wonder that we don’t trust or respect.
    Best wishes Norman, may the world one day be free of evil people.

  7. You make me weep, Mr Grumpy!!!…
    But there is a consolation: the justice that occurs when our life ‘rewinds’ before us on our death bed. We will feel all the pain we’ve afflicted on others. May we continue living with a clean conscience!
