UPDATE – 20 August 2013

Here are some comments on this case:

William W stated:

This is a total outrage, how anyone can do such EVIL to someone like Grandma B, just leaves me with no words, to express my disgust. These despicable corrupt officials, politicians and police, should all be sent to JAIL, there they belong. Also if Mrs May the Home Secretary, does not do her job, then it will look like yet one more Government cover up. If that is the case then I feel that Mrs May, should join these CORRUPT and EVIL people in JAIL.”

Ann M. added:

“I’m incensed that this blatant organised crime and violation of human rights is allowed to happen; and that the citizens of North Yorkshire, who are funding these domestic terrorists through their taxes, are silent and inactive. What are they waiting for?!”

QUESTIONS IN PARLIAMENT

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass has kindly tabled a series of Questions in Parliament on this case, as the corrupt politicians and officials involved in the Abuse of Grandma B, now into its fifth year, have failed to see that it is stopped. However, the government will not accept responsibility for dealing with official corruption.

Lord Maginnis’s question can be seen on video, a few minutes after the beginning:

http://www.parliamentlive.tv/main/Player.aspx?meetingId=10756&wfs=true

Among the more revealing questions – to which the government evaded giving any proper answers – were:

“The Hofschroer case has been on my desk for several years now. A widow in her 80s was dispossessed of her home in a way that implies collusion between certain family members and the Social Services. A son who has come to the rescue has been harried by the North Yorkshire police (that particularly dubious constabulary merits careful investigation) to the extent that he and his aged mother have been pursued through an Interpol warrant to their “refuge” in Austria.

http://www.epolitix.com/latestnews/article-detail/newsarticle/proper-delegation-please-not-abdication/

“Does anyone in authority care that social services and police in North Yorkshire have conspired in the persecution of Mrs Hofschroer and her son? Are details of dismissals, forced retirements and other shady and costly measures pertaining to North Yorkshire Police available to legislators in Parliament?

http://www.theyworkforyou.com/lords/?id=2012-05-15a.258.7&s=Hofschroer#g332.0:

None of the accused, including chief officers of the notorious North Yorkshire Police, who covered up for Jimmy Savile and other abusers for 50 years, the senior management of the City of York Council, its Labour leadership and the Common Purpose graduates running its Social Services department have denied their complicity in the serious crimes they have committed against a now 84 year-old invalid and her carer.

A number of other Lords also spoke on Police corruption over the course of the question and later in the day.  One made reference to Lord Maginnis’s concern over Grandma B and raised concerns of “systemic corruption at all levels”, the involvement of corrupt police officers “in all types of crime”, and how Police Professional Standards Departments and Police Authorities “aligned themselves” with the accused police officers against the complainant.

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, does it not all boil down to the fact that the coalition Government have no real concept of hands-on responsibility or of timely decision-making and believe that by delegation they can wash their hands of responsibility? Are the Gary McKinnon and widow Hofschröer cases, respectively awaiting justice for 10 years and three years, not examples of a Government who could not care less?

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, in so far as I intend to pursue in more detail the issue that I raised earlier at Oral Questions, I want to make it clear that I am not anti-police.

Lord Henley: …its decisions. The noble Lord went on to mention two cases. Gary McKinnon has nothing to do with any allegations of police corruption because his case is purely about extradition.

We do hope this leads to the mass arrest of all corrupt police officers, council officials and politicians  in North Yorkshire.

****************************************************************************************************************************

An eminent barrister has just sent us the following comment,

“If you wrote to me, alleging that I had been guilty of one or more of the offences which you persistently set out in detail, and in demanding my arrest, I would immediately pass that to my lawyers, who would write to you either threatening a writ for libel, if not the writ itself, or going to court to obtain an injunction against you, or bring a criminal action against you for harassment, or whatever else the legal brain could devise.  What is astonishing, in the many months in which you have been firing off your emails to police and officials, is that not one of them has responded with a legal threat against you.  That tells its own story.

This is very much the theme of this blog. None of the corrupt officials accused here of committing serious criminal offences against an 84 year-old invalid are disputing the allegations that they are corrupt officials committing serious criminal offences against an 84 year-old invalid. These are the people now running the once proud country of Britain…

****************************************************************************************************************************

Grandma B is now 84 years old. She is wheelchair-bound and very frail. The past five years of her life have been horrendous. She lost her husband of 60 years, but that was the easy part. She has also been the victim of sustained and systematic abuse in which she has been defrauded of her house, subjected to threats and harassment because she will not hand over her life savings to her abusers, then unlawfully evicted from her house and stranded abroad, with her abusers trying, fortunately unsuccessfully, to fraudulently sell her house.

You may well ask who would do such an awful thing to a little, old lady in a wheelchair. Sadly, most abuse takes place within the family and this is very much the case here. The main abusers are Grandma B’s older son, his wife and her two adult grandchildren.

Grandma B’s younger son was working abroad when he noticed something was very wrong. He immediately rushed back home, where his worst fears were confirmed. While he was travelling, his 87 year-old father was admitted to hospital with a serious heart complaint caused by neglect. His mother too was seriously ill due to neglect. His older brother and his family lived just around the corner, but had done little to help Grandma B and her very sick husband.

A year before this, Grandma B and her husband had signed over their house to the older son and his family on the understanding they would care for them. Their younger son agreed to this, because he was living and working abroad and could not provide the level of care needed. Hardly was the ink on the agreement dry when the older son and his family started running Grandma B and her husband down, hoping they would pass on as soon as possible.

When, in April 2008, the younger son arrived in the parental home, he was horrified by what he saw. He dropped what he was doing, gave up his job and home and became the full-time carer for his parents. His father led a full and happy life in his last months. His mother’s physical health has improved dramatically since the younger son took over her care.

As soon as the younger son took over the care of his parents, the older son and his family started a campaign of harassment designed to drive him out of the parental home and to seize control of their finances. Matters reached such a level in September 2008, that the younger son reported the criminal offences to the police and the abuse to social services.

What followed from there can only be described as a nightmare. The police made several attempts to arrest the carer on the basis of false allegations, while social services fabricated allegations against him in an attempt to have his powers of attorney revoked and the care of his parents placed in the hands of their abusers.

A few days after the younger son made his complaint, the police arrived at the parental home to investigate a complaint he has “stolen” his parents’ money. They had no evidence to support this allegation made by the abusers, but refused to record a complaint of harassment by the abusers.

Social services blocked all attempts at getting the abuse investigated. Grandma B’s social worker made a false allegation of assault against her carer, an unfit, middle-aged man. Social services withdrew this allegation when they were shown evidence that the social worker was a black-belt in martial arts. His claim to have been overpowered and physically ejected from the parental home without injury looked a little ridiculous, to say the least.

On the morning Grandma B’s husband of 60 years died, the police unlawfully raided her house. They allowed her abusers to charge in, assault her and bawl insults at her over her husband’s still warm corpse. When her carer stood between her and her abusers to protect her, the police officers pushed him out of the way and threatened to arrest him.

In the following months, the abusers stalked Grandma B, attempted to break into her house and send her abusive letters. The police refused to uphold the law and arrest the criminals in question.

An independent investigation into Social Service’s handling of the case criticised them and required them to reopen the safeguarding investigation. Months later, they did, but the police and Social Services withheld all evidence of abuse.

Instead, they fabricated abuse allegations against the carer and applied to the Office of the Public Guardian to have his powers of attorney annulled. The Office of the Public Guardian established the allegations made by Social Services were false and rejected the application.

Grandma B then went on her wheelchair to a local council meeting to hand out a leaflet protesting about the way the police and social services were treating her. Her local ward councillors set police officers in stab-vests on to her, threatening to arrest her for distributing a “defamatory” leaflet. When her carer pointed out that defamation is a civil matter and not a police matter, the officers looked a little flummoxed, but still tried to prevent her from exercising her democratic right of peaceful protest. Grandma B is a veteran of the Second World War and stood her ground. When her carer called out to the police sergeant attending the meeting in front of the 30 or so members of the public present that she should arrest these officers for harassing a vulnerable person, they beat a hasty retreat. The sergeant refused to uphold the law.

Instead, two days later, the local police fabricated the first Harassment Warning against her carer.  A couple of weeks later, they fabricated a second warning and were clearly intending to fabricate a third, at which point the carer could have been arrested. A file recently obtained from the Office of the Public Guardian shows this was planned to be on Christmas Day 2009, when the main abuser and corrupt police officers were planning to raid Grandma B’s house – unlawfully again, of course.

In the ensuing two years, the carer’s legal representatives both in Britain and abroad have made dozens of requests for sight of the evidence to support these unsigned, undated harassment warnings which are not legally valid. The police have produced nothing other than excuses and have refused every opportunity to sign these warnings for fear of perjuring themselves. The police inspector that issued the warnings took “early retirement” when challenged by the carer’s solicitor to produce the evidence.

Exhausted by this constant harassment, Grandma B went abroad on holiday for Christmas 2009. The police tipped off her abusers she was away from home, who then forced entry, changed the locks and unlawfully evicted her. After stealing her valuables in full view of the police, they tried to fraudulently sell her house. Fortunately, Grandma B’s solicitor prevented them from doing so.

However, her abusers and their friends in the police and local authority, then fabricated a kidnapping allegation against her carer. This request to arrest the carer went from the local CID to Special Branch, to SOCA, to New Scotland Yard, to Interpol London, Interpol in the country in question, then to the national police headquarters and provincial police headquarters before landing on the desk of a local police officer in a remote Alpine village.

The expectation here was obvious: the local country bumpkin plod would be so impressed by the provenance of this request that he would summon up reinforcements before daring to attempt to tackle this known, hardened, serious international criminal.

It did not quite work out like that. Two weeks before this request arrived, the police officer and his good wife had been among the many guests at the local pub at Grandma B’s 82nd birthday party. He had been sceptical about the stories he had heard about official corruption in Britain, but now he was supposed to arrest the carer for kidnapping his mother, holding her against her will and incommunicado. He obviously knew these allegations were false, but being a professional, he carried out a proper investigation. His report made it clear that the British police had knowingly lied to Interpol to help corrupt officers defraud a little, old lady on a wheelchair.

This attempt by corrupt British police to abuse honest local police officers to carry out criminal acts on their behalf is now under investigation by the local foreign ministry.

Had the carer not been so lucky, then the chances are he would have been remanded in custody pending extradition, while Grandma B would have been returned to Britain and to the tender mercies of social services. Her assets would then have been plundered and divided up between the gang of criminals running this racket.

There have now been five independent reviews of this case. All have called for it to be reopened. Both the police and local authority have ignored these requests.

So what is going on here and who is involved? The main abuser is employed by local social services. He, his wife and daughter have provided support services to the local police. They all know who the isolated old people in their area with assets are. It would seem they are systematically targeting defenceless old people and seizing control of their assets before bundling them off into a council home, then selling their assets. The cash then gets laundered through a dodgy private care company as “care fees” and the police officers, social workers, council officials and local politicians involved then pocket the money. The perfect crime, as who is going to listen to a confused, old lady in a home, whose contact with the outside world they are controlling?

This is rampant corruption and serious, organised crime. Nobody in authority in North Yorkshire will respond to correspondence and deal with this case.

How many more victims are there?

      So far, nobody in authority has acted to stop this abuse. However, we are hoping that a planned Question in the House will force the Home Secretary to act.

    Where is this lady’s MP? And why is this not all over the news?

    Reply
    • Thanks for your comments. You may like to ask Grandma B’s MP Hugh Bayley that very question, and why he has ignored her case for the THREE YEARS he has known about it.

      It might have something to do with the fact that his party, York Labour Party, is actively involved in the abuse. Grandma B’s abusers include her two ward councillors, the Lord Mayor of York, David Horton JP and Tracey Simpson-Laing, whose portfolio includes adult social services. They have both gone so far as to commit criminal offences against Grandma B and her carer.

      The press has been kept informed of these events, but as yet to publish the story.

      Thanks again for your support.

    Police in the UK are not protecting the public or investigating white collar crime. They are acting like private henchmen for corrupt local councils and are obviously on the take.

    This is NOT an isolated incident. These abuses are happening up and down the country.

    It is little more than mafia operations.

    • Thank you for your comment.

      I doubt very much that the Mafia would systematically abuse old people. Unlike the British authorities, they have a code of honour.

      • Have you heard of Grandad, Jim, of Gateshead, now nearing 78 birthday, and also has a similar story to publish with irrefutable evidence.

  5. Thank you for your input. One of the reasons Grandma B started this blog was that she was sure from the systematic manner of the abuse she is having to endure at the hands of the authorities, and particularly by the way all appeals mechanisms are designed not to work, that her case could not be isolated, but part of a crime racket and is probably likely to be national and not just local.

    If you want to send us more details of your tragic case, please do so, as we are not aware of it. We have a professional fraud investigator working on the case, a peer of the realm planning to table a Question in the House and various other advisors, who share our concerns.

    Reply
    • Thanks for your input.

      Your comments on your experiences the Office of the Public Guardian remind me of how they have treated Grandma B. Her main abuser, her older son Robert Hofschröer, who is employed by York Social Services to “deal” with vulnerable people, and his family made false allegations to his colleagues claiming her carer was abusing her. What they did not like was the fact she had moved her life savings into an account they did not know about, foiling their plan to steal her money. The police had investigated these allegations months earlier and found them to be unsubstantiated.

      Robert’s colleagues held an illegal safeguarding conference to which the accused was not invited to defend himself, contrary to York Council Policy. These corrupt social workers then requested the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) to apply to the Court of Protection to have Grandma B’s carer’s powers of attorney withdrawn, so they could seize Grandma’s savings and steal them.

      The OPG rejected their application as the accusations made against the carer were clearly false. York Council had attempted to defraud Grandma B of her savings. That is a serious, criminal offence. Legal opinion was that the OPG should report this crime to the police. Martin John, its CEO, refused to do so.

      Reply
    • I concur with that. Grandma B’s experience (mentioned above) shows that the OPG at least turns a blind-eye to local authority crime.

        When forced to investigate, the OPG AND COP say they have investigated, but have been proven not to have done so. They seem to pretend to investigate or, at best, not do a real or proper investigation into complaints.

  7. My sentiments exactly. The same similar situation is being attempted upon my own mother in whom I have cared for 16 years. Check in to us and read at http://www.opg.me

  8. Oh! Michael!

    Thanks for contribution. My heart bleeds for you and your mother. In the last four years, I keep asking myself what sort of people would systematically abuse vulnerable people. Decent human beings would not do that. In Grandma B’s case, it is social workers, police officers, council officials and politicians.

    Then I find myself asking, what goes through their minds when they commit criminal offences against the defenceless? I have the impression they enjoy it and think it is their right to do so. They seem incredulous when challenged about their behaviour.

    Keep your chin up mate. See it this way – good eventually triumphs over evil. The way there can be horrendous, but if we all stick together and help each other, we will make it.

Our home was stolen and daughter imprisoned in secret to stop her speaking about how our family home and all goods were stolen by the mass fraud and corruption operating in the Office of Public Guardian/ Court of Protection. They then abuse us further by not investigating this crime and even giving us criminal records such as harassment for fighting for what rightfully belongs to us. This corruption by Hoddesdon/ Hertford police and Government departments needs to stop!

  10. Thanks for your comment. When this affair started four years ago, we were naive enough to believe we had a bent cop or two and a dodgy social worker, and their managers would do their job and sort this. Four years on, and we have now got to ministerial level, with senior government ministers turning a blind eye to this endemic corruption in the authorities in Britain. One is left suspecting their involvement. Is Britain run by a crime syndicate?

    I am a registered disabled lady ,with limited mobility. My helper of 11 years has been subject to verbal threats ,followed by an arson attempt on his home. I believe his address was given to the perpetrators (my neighbours) by the police officers who frequently threatened my helper with arrest.
    Mine is a story of corruption in Council Offices, Land Registry, Lincolnshires Police( three police offices being relatives).
    I have it on good authority that “any” business between Councils and Land Registry is conducted on the nod and no forms filled in.
    My neighbours put in to own my registered land (FR1 Form, for first registration of their own house to includes a large chunk of my registered land) , and according to paperwork now provided to me , did not even pay the fee for filing the FR1 Form.
    My own Conveyance Document is held by Land Registry and even demanding its return from Malcolm Dawson ( Chief Executive of Land Registry), on advice of the Police Officer looking into the fraud that is taking place, yelds no reply and no Conveyance Document.
    I have also stumbled on the fact that the fraud of my neighbours is to cover up for a previous fraud .
    Apparently when l purchased my property , l bought two properties.
    No not next door to each other.
    The other property is in a neighbouring village and has 50 acres.
    I have been trying to get information by use of the Data Protection Act and Freedom of Information Act , since March 2009.
    I have been side-walled by The Information Commissioners Office , who made me wait 12 MONTHS before even looking into my case.
    Three attempts to “Fast Track ” my case were refused.
    The Law says that these organisations should meet times lines for Court Cases.
    The Information Commissioners Office is answerable to the Ministry of Justice and Parliament.
    I have been forced into a TWO DAY Land Registry Hearing and a HEARING OUT OF TIME AT THE HIGH COURTS IN LONDON.Both times being refused the information l was legally entitled to from Land Registry.
    On 22 nd July 2011 at Grimsby Courts , HH JUDGE Richardson QC sitting, on advice of my Legal Insurance , l put into evidence all the “PAPERWORK EVIDENCE” to prove this land stolen from me is in FACT my Registered/Legally/Lawfully/Bought/Owned LAND.
    The Judge said he did not have to consider the evidence.
    I have been repeatedly assaulted and attempts on my life( cars driven straight at me), my property broken into and my livestock and pets hurt and killed.
    These neighbours are now going to put a possession order on my home for their costs of stealing my land that was meant to have a state guarantee and protected.
    Also the land with the other property that was registered with my land here where l live , on the SAME TITLE, has apparently been also registered to TWO OTHER OWNERS.
    The level of corruption of the Police involved ( these neighbours son is a police officer) has been unbelievable. I have been locked in a room on two occassions.
    This neighbour worked for local Council in their planning office, in daily contact with Land Registry. The Plan/Map used to STEAL my land in inaccurate and yet neither Land Registry or the Council will admit where this Plan/Map originates from.
    This whole episode has been very, very expensive, but worst still is the cost of my case and others to the public purse.
    I am guessing here but the cost to ratepayers for this theft of my land is about £300,000.00 and rising.
    I draw hope from hearing of all the good people out there fighting for justice and pray that they all like your good self find the strength to win .

  17. This sort of abuse is going on all over the country. I`m aware of collusion between social services, care home managers, solicitors, and the public guardian and rogue members of a family which stitched up an old lady in order to imprison her in a care home and steal her assets.

  18. Please let us have documentary evidence of this and if you wish, write up the story to post on this blog. We will happily do all we can to fight such abuse.

    Reply
  19. I`m from Scotland and so what we are dealing with here is the Scottish Public Guardian which is a different department. But abuse is everywhere. What we have here is a solicitor who claimed that the old lady said she could not write and who signed the Power of Attorney on her behalf. Only the old lady could write, and did so, a few days later. The old lady was in the care home, expecting to be assessed for sheltered housing at the time the document was signed. Yet her Power of Attorney was sent to her home address. The old lady was not aware of this document and so she could never question it or revoke it. A few days after the Power of Attorney was registered the claim was made that the old lady no longer had mental capacity to make her own decisions. So the stitch-up was complete and the attorney could do what they liked with the assets. The old lady could never revoke the Power of Attorney even if she had been aware of it. She had entered the care home a free woman and in less than five weeks she became a life long prisoner of the care home.

    I have evidence that the solicitor and Social Work Department who were dealing with the case were in communication. I have evidence that the care home manager and the Social Work Department were communicating with each other, and instructions came from the Social Work Department that I should be forbidden from visiting the old lady. So she was left helpless. All they had to do was wave the Power of Attorney at me.

    I am commenting on this blog because I know terrible abuse is going on
    and most of the public are unaware of it. Somehow we have to raise public awareness or it isn`t going to stop.

    Yes, there is a groundswell of public revoltion, which will hopefully turn into action.

    If you want to write up your story and provide the documentary evidence in support, then we will happily publish it on this site.

    Hi,

    This is horrendous story, but I have an even worse story, I am disabled elderly and in poor health, I am a whistleblower with evidence of massive fraud on Housing Benefit by Housing Associations in Scotland, I have won numerous cases against a Housing Association about this, they then started a fabricated Court Action against me, the Solicitor that was helping me pulled out even though I had a Legal Aid Certificate, I was defending the case myself but started collapsing and had to go to my GP, he discovered I had high blood pressure 220 over 110, and put me on Blood Pressure tablets, they made me more unwell I believe I was allergic to some of the ingredients, he gave me a Soul & Conscious letter for the Court stating I was unfit at present to conduct my own defence and required a three months time span for medical tests to find out what was going on, the Court Ignored this letter and gave an immediate Eviction notice against me, Sheriff Officers and Police broke into my home when a neighbour had taken me out to get some food from a local supermarket. I had very little money, no medication nothing on me, I was homeless with only my dog, the Local Authority refused to house me, then a few days later the Armed Police raided my home, my neighbours stated they had numerous officers in my flat smashing up my furniture, the armed Police then arrived Evicted me from my home, locking it up. I a neighbour took me out shopping

      Hi Dylan. I am very sorry to hear about your problems. Did you know that the Serious Fraud Office now has a whistleblower hotline? You can email or phone. Mind you, most of us have been reporting fraud for years and they have never taken any notice. It might be worth a try.

    The Armed Police then arrived at a friend I was staying with, I was in bed unwell, they had a warrant to raid my friends house, they arrested me held me in Police Custody for four days, refused to allow me to appear in court, they charged me with having a fire arm and ammunition, stated they had witnesses and statements, while I was in custody the landlord a Housing Association with the help of the Police threw all the contents of my flat is skips, I have nothing. My contents was insured for £80.000.00 Aviva my insurance company refuses to pay me anything. When the case came to court a year later, the Police and Procurator Fiscal could produce no witnesses or statements and the case against me was abandoned. The Local Authority refuses to house me, no MP or MSP will help me, no Solicitor will help me, no Councillor will help me, I am moving around living with friends for a few weeks at a time, I cannot get accommodation as most landlords will not take people on DSS that is Housing Benefit paid by the State, and I have my dog, most landlords do not allow pets. I have no criminal record, do not smoke and have never taken alcohol, and at present I am in poor health, and am having difficulty getting medical care because I have no permanent address. Social Services are not interested in helping me, in fact they refuse to help me, I was arrested again by the Police on further fabricated charges again, and am awaiting to see what is going to happen about this.

    I cannot commend you enough on the effort you are putting in to right an obvious wrong(s). I hope you keep up the pressure. I am certain there are a lot more people out there who are on your side and we can only hope they will also start asking questions!! You have my full support as always

    • Thanks for your post.

      The fearful thought is there are lots more victims out there, whom we don’t know about.- isolated, old people who do not have a voice and have no chance against corrupt police forces and local authorities.

      What would help is sending on the link to this site to all your contacts – the more people that know what is going on, the greater the chance of success.

    It was recently discovered that police authorities are employing and using private agencies to carry out police business who consequently appear to be doing this without a warrant card. Have any of them been asked to produce this card?
    Since 1992 and the Rio Summit and Agenda 21 (Google it) it seems that a specially created Land Registry is busy claiming property for the state while the Agenda 21 aim for world population reduction is being slavishly carried out.

    Time passes and nothing is done yet! We have (supposedly) a prime Minister, a Home Office Minister and a Justice Minister. Therefore the guilt lies with them .
    Can we not mount a pointed attack on them? make them state the fact that all is as it should be.or otherwise.

    • Sorry, it would seem you have misunderstood the posting. The barrister’s point is that NONE of those accused here have taken action, despite having been accussed of committing very serious criminal offences.
      Their failure to act is tantamount to an admission of guilt, of having committed the offences of which they stand accused.

  29. To set with your horrendous experience…

    My father, Ralph Winstanley was killed more than 8 years ago, in his own home. To this day South Yorkshire Police Force has not investigated this murder, for which we have a large range of documentary evidence which proves
    a) that he had not been dying
    b) that he was deliberately killed
    c) How that killing was achieved
    d) who organised that deliberate killing

    It has been online on his website for 8 years now, everyone named – including the authorities – has been made fully aware of it and of the fact that they have been named.

    They seem to be untroubled. Why would that be?

    The people who have written to say that he had not been dying, were his two consultants at Doncaster Royal Infirmary. Strong enough written evidence, one might think?

    We currently stand – continuously – as ‘vexatious’ so they can refuse to send the legally required documents under FOIA/DPA, which will show the farce of the latest ‘investigation’ which seems to have been stopped by Paul Kelly the Coroner who would not allow adequate evidence to be brought to the inquest. Of course I am not certain of Paul Kelly’s decisions, because the police will not forward the documents.

    However, Like you, the police acting in an entirely corrupt manner, have refused to do their job. In that refusal they have been backed up by the corrupt agencies:
    South Yorkshire Police Authority,
    Independent Police Complaints Commission
    Two of Her Majesty’s corrupt Coroners,,
    Ministry of Justice,
    Home Office,
    General Medical Council
    Nursing and Midwifery Council
    Healthcare Commission,
    Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman
    Care Quality Commission
    three Judicial Review Judges, who would not allow me to take the Coroner’s decisions for review
    and numerous others, including
    Information Commissioner – personally..

    In the last eight years, my father’s estate (in which I personally had no interest) has been looted by the person who had him killed, and who had set in place what is (loosely) termed his ‘will’.
    Will made 17Feb2004 – Ralph Winstanley deliberately killed 23 April 2004
    Probate Office would do nothing. Police would do nothing etc etc

    I am sure you are fully aware of the rest.

    I have two ‘riders’ for you.
    1. The Chief Constable of North Yorkshire was formerly in South Yorkshire – where I had dealings with him.

    2. Since 2000, the Chairman of East Doncaster PCT – then Doncaster PCT – then NHS Doncaster – and then Doncaster NHS, is Mr Roger Greenwood, formerly Police Superintendent Roger Greenwood, who was in charge of crowd control – pitch side – during the Hillsborough Disaster, – for which as yet there has still been no justice. (18 years, isn’t it?)

    The Hillsborough records at Edgehill University – which I have read – quote him as saying that when all those young people were being crushed to death in front of him, he “stood on an advertising hoarding and waved my hands”. Those young people had already been treated like cattle, forcing them into a stand where such crushing was bound to happen. I believe that those deaths were entirely the responsibility of the Police.

    So why isn’t he in jail, together with his colleagues, for not only incompetence but failing to ensure public safety? Apparently the Chief Superintendent who was in the Directors Room, had a funny turn after the terrible deaths, so he couldn’t be prosecuted (poor man) That meant – and I quote – the others couldn’t be prosecuted ‘because it would be unfair’.

    What qualification might he have had for such a vital role within the NHS? As far as I can establish, his last Police posting was as Commander in Doncaster.

    I wonder if he knows the person who killed my father?

    Whatever the truth, there is something rotten at the core.

      I’ve just looked to…another harrowing case, but Ralph’s blog also appears to be down..Error 503, and looking at a Webring justice sites that are also linked to from there…they all seem to be having problems also, links not working, especially to petitions and that….all seems very suspect!

    • A succession of central governments over the past 30 years appears to have turned a blind eye to the criminal activities of Cllr Jane Kenyon and her gang. Presumably all involved have done so for a share of the proceeds or other such favours – the police, the police authority, the local authorities, members of all political parties, etc., etc.

      One cannot help but come to the conclusion that the government of the once proud country of Britain is in the hands of a crime syndicate.

    If you are a bobby (get that ‘BOBBY’ ) are you abusing Grandma B? If you are,don’t expect the traditional support that you are used to having.

    YOU MUST PROTECT AND DEFEND HER.

    However if you are a chief (or deputy) constable, what the hell are you playing at?

    Reply
    • Thank you for your comment.

      You might like to ask PC Graham Cooper of North Yorkshire Police what went through his mind when at a public meeting, where Grandma B was sitting on her wheelchair exercising her democratic right to peaceful protest by handing out a leaflet. Local Labour Party grandees David Horton JP and Tracey Simpson-Laing, now portfolio holder for adult social services, ordered him to stop her protesting about the way they were treating her.

      What ever he was thinking, he felt compelled to don his stab-jacket before confronting a then 80 year-old invalid, demanding she stop her lawful behaviour.

      Presuming he did not feel threatened by a little, old lady in a wheelchair, then he must have donned his stab-jacket to intimidate her,

      All in the course of day’s work by Jimmy Savile’s favourite police force, eh?

      A few days after Grandma B had the nerve to insist on her right of free expression, North Yorkshire Police started coming around her house late at night causing a breach of the peace to intimidate her.

      She was so terrified by their criminal activity, she had to be taken abroad for a break.

      When North Yorkshire Police established she was away from home, they assisted a criminal gang, which of course included social workers, to force entry to her house, change the locks, unlawfully evict her, steal her belongings and then to try to fraudulently sell her house.

      All in a day’s work for North Yorkshire Police.

      Had Grandma B’s solicitors not stopped them, then the proceeds of this crime would have been shared all the way up the feeding-chain to the top.

      Stealing the houses of defenceless old ladies is one of the specialities of North Yorkshire Police. Another is, as the Savile case shows, the trafficking of vulnerable children.

      Nobody in North Yorkshire can possibly be safe so long as police officers are at large.

  36. Just research into the millions of pounds in the homes of the elderly, look into the social workers using their powers to put elderly into care homes with them putting an order on their property, which cannot be sold until they die in care, then the house is sold with payments to the agents, lawyers, care homes and nothing left for the family,
    NOW LET’S TAKE A LOOK INTO SILVERLINE SET UP BY ESTHER ??? AND WE ALL KNOW CHILDLINE WAS A WAY IN FOR THE PAEDOPHILES TO KNOW WHERE KIDS WERE WAITING AFTER REPORTING RUNNING AWAY FROM BEING ABUSED IN THE CARE SYSTEM, AND SO WHAT BETTER THEN A FREE HELPLINE FOR THE ELDERLY TO PASS ON ALL INFORMATION SUCH AS YES I LIVE ALONE YES I OWN MY HOUSE YOU WILL ALL KNOW THE REST AT THE END IN COMES THE SOCIAL WORKERS GOODBYE GRANDMA/DAD, THEN WE HAVE THE SOCIAL WORKERS STEALING THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN FROM GOOD PARENTS OUR CHILDREN ARE ALSO TAKEN INTO A MULTI-BILLION POUND KIDS INDUSTRY WHEN THE PEOPLE OF THE UK WAKE UP THEY WILL KNOW THEY ARE BEING RULED EN MASSE FROM BIRTH TILL DEATH.

  37. Thank you for your contribution and enlightening comments. Our fear is that this abuse does not end with the mere expropriation of an old person’s assets. One only has to add the “care pathway” and stories like Stafford Hospital into the equation and the picture one gets is of deliberate genocide of the elderly to facilitate the theft of their assets. The people carrying out these horrific crimes are going to be old one day. Do they believe they will be treated any different?
