He used to whisper to horses, after he ‘served the country’ by killing fellow soldiers in WWII.
He suffered soo much as a victim of ‘The State’ of his country that he fled to Ireland where he recently celebrated his 90th birthday.
He also became more and more eloquent and ‘to the point’, as he puts so FABULOUSLY here:
To Judge Robin Callender Smith.
In the matter of Scarth v
Information Commissioner, case EA/2014/0042.
I wish to thank you for your interjection (after I had been speaking for barely 5 minutes) at the Telephone Conference Hearing on 24th May 2016, when you said, “Get to the point Mr Scarth.”
Those six words were most helpful to me.
(Before going further, I ask you to look at the attachment, which includes a transcript of that hearing. As stated in the document I would be grateful if you would certify the transcript as an accurate record of the proceedings [as Lord Woolf did in 1999] & return it to me.)
To return to the main point of this message.
You were not INTENDING to be helpful:
On the contrary, your arrogant bullying was intended to unsettle me. Your pulling the plug to prevent my McKenzie Friend reminding me of a matter I had forgotten was even worse, & was in gross violation of Article 6.
Paradoxically, in those few words you got right to the heart of the matter – you hit the nail on the head!
BUT – you hit the wrong nail!
The ‘POINT‘ of this matter was the seriously criminal attack on me by West Yorkshire Police on 8th August 1999 – & I have been TRYING to ‘stick to that point’!
Trouble is, I am the only one who has been doing so. When The State is anxious that serious crime committed by agencies of The State should remain covered up (as now), the whole legal process is used to obfuscate, confuse & divert the arguments further & further AWAY from the ‘Point’, into a maze of legalese bafflegab, a fog of bewilderment & a bog of treacle.
Stalin could not have had his Gulags, Hitler his concentration camps, without millions of people willing to do the dirty work in return for the perks from being part of the Police State.
And so it is with The Freedom of Information Act, the Information Commissioner, & the army of apparatchiks of the First Tier Tribunal, Upper Tribunal, General Regulatory Council, the Office for Judicial Complaints (OJC), which was abolished, replaced by the Judicial Conduct and Investigations Office (JCIO). & Admiral Sir John Brigstocke KCB, who holds the sinecure pretend job of Judicial Appointments and Conduct Ombudsman.
All of them specifically created to take all those involved further, & further, & further away from the central & essential ‘Point’!
It is astonishing that a people who had the benefit of George Orwell’s prediction in his book, ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’ (& the real life examples of Stalinist Russia & Hitler’s Germany) should ignore it when those predictions come true, as has been increasingly the case since the end of World War 2.
Orwell wrote of Newspeak, & Ingsoc, & reversed language, where government departments were given names which were the complete opposite of what they actually did, i.e. The Ministry of Peace, whose purpose was to control the army, & maintain a state of war with ‘The Enemy’:
In Britain, we had an example of that – before Orwell had written it!
At one time the British Army was controlled, & sent to conquer other people by the ‘War Department’. At the end of WW2, this was changed to the ‘Department of Defence’, which sounds much less bloodthirsty.
I ask that you accept that which is above as ‘Further Submissions – 4’ in my appeal against the (falsely named) Information Commissioner
You will by now be aware that I have made a complaint about you to the JCIO.
For your convenience, I include the text of my email to that body. The actual complaint is in the attachment.
I await your decision with a faint & foolish hope that you may now realise just what you are part of, that you will feel a twinge of conscience, & that you will take such action as is necessary to bring this Police Crime to light. Being deliberate & with malice, it was worse than Hillsborough, even if the consequences have not been as dramatic.
