Just how corrupted is our legal system nowadays?

          I have been appraised of a situation whereby a shisha cafe/bar owner has sent in all the relevant documentation, claiming damages (ie; restitution from his local council) – for all the shop front damage caused when they (the local EHO’s) ordered a burly policeman to “break in“, using a crowbar (!) even though the premises was actually open and full of customers at the time. The shop frontage is comprises entirely of pre-cast, re-inforced, aluminium quadrangle.      The girl who tended the door had allowed the last ‘pre-booked‘ customer in some minutes earlier and had locked the door, leaving the key next to the till so as to continue serving customers, and  also so as to prevent any of the areas less salubrious residents from entering and causing mayhem. The local MP is only too aware of the immigrant drug related problems in the area – yet the local councillor seemed unaware, or was instructed to be ‘unaware’!

     The door & frame were made of solid stock and were much approved by all police forces as an anti-burglar deterrent when first invented – thus, the door/door lock & frame were never going to succumb to a mere crowbar!

     The upshot was that they all trooped to the rear of the building as the door, door locking machanism & framework were all rendered useless as a security measure thanks to the utter stupidity of an ignorant EHO.

Now the reason I tell you all this is four-fold:

a)… The policeman, on the night, advised the business owner to sue the council as it was upon their instruction that he tried to force open the unenforceable!

b)… They illegally attempted to raid the flat above the business, which is a privately rented abode and is a completely separate entity….

c)… They frightened all the customers half to death, many of whom have written ‘complaint statements‘ concerning the nights events (they have all been filed correctly).

d)… All documentation has been shown to three individual, retired magistrates for ‘considered opinion’ and all three have declared that the council should make restitution. Hence the business owner has forked out the necessary £205.00 fee at his local courthouse and sent all documentation off to Salford (Manchester). Now won’t this be interesting as who knows what wheels turn within what wheels???

     Now I add the last little gem because many of us already know just how corrupted our laws have become since June 1st, 2007 (and if anyone wants to take me on with that statement, they are quite welcome to – I look forward to the challenge  )

     It appears that the council has replied to the gentleman’s legal challenge stating that they will defend ‘robustly’ (much favoured word at the moment) and should they be successful, they will of course be claiming THEIR legal expenditure from the business owner!

     That is absolutely priceless as it has cost this poor soul £205.00 in the first place to even challenge for his rightful reparation-but of course we must remember that nobody, but nobody is allowed to challenge the almighty local council/s – wherever it/they may be!

     I will update this saga as it unfolds folks

The HYPOCRISY of councils!

This is unbelievable as far as double standards go – and even more so as it comes from Bradford Council who prosecuted yet another shisha bar/cafe as reported here a few days ago. Let me remind you of some of the ‘verbal gems‘ from Council staff:

Moronic response from Bradford !!!

     No doubt many of you will have seen that Junoon Experience Ltd in Grattan Road, Bradford were raided (yet again because of an anonymous tip-off) and duly hauled before the courts. The owners were fined £2,500 + £653 costs and a £120 surcharge.  They did not bother to attend the court hearing – and I don’t blame them for no matter what they may have said, the intolerance of anti smokers and the directives from the EU Tobacco Control would have remained exactly the same.

Nice to be back!

   As I say, nice to be back after the hackers & interrupters of truth have been dismissed and we are back online again to cause unrest and concern to EHO’s and all other anti-smoking jihaddists nationwide. And why shouldn’t we when they are, by means of the most crooked of laws ever passed, murdering businesses here there & everywhere, fining good honest citizens money they don’t have just because they still enjoy a harmless smoke where an idiotic, ill thought out law now says they can’t. A classic example of the lies & misinformation used is right here in Leicester!

     Lecester Royal Infirmay sits proudly, slightly south west but near the city centre. It does some wonderful repair jobs on the sick and the injured but at it very doors it spreads blatant lies & dreadful misinformation as the most repetitive & annoying tannoy in the universe constantly chants “Welcome to Leicester Hospitals, you are now on NHS property and it is illegal to smoke” Now there is a downright lie if ever there was one because of course we all know only too well that it is not illegal to smoke on hospital grounds as it OUTSIDE.

Leicester Royal Infirmary-the voice of lies & misinformation

       Happily, I have already objected to the senior management but they continue to allow the message to be broadcast every single minute of the day! So much for truth & integrity! I think it is time to write to them again and remind them of their double standards.

Chilaxing: Robyn Althasen was seen smoking shisha at the Ocean Club Marbella on Friday   Best buds: She was joined by her friend Imogen Leaver who also enjoyed a smoke

     The media maintain their relentless pursuit of anyone enjoying themselves via any form of smoking, the latest being TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) actresses Robyn Althasen and Imogen Leaver (above) who have been snapped in Marbella enjoying a shisha pipe. Wowee! what earth shattering news that is when the country is heading for bankruptcy, muslim loonies are beheading wives in West London, burning wives  in Scotland & the cost of living going through the roof! Oh, and of course, the other great story is about the tobacco smugglers who are flooding this country with cheap tobacco products – well whose fault is that? Who caused this ‘massive problem’ in the first place?

Pubs, clubs & shisha bars all closing

 This is the kind of crazy country, crazy system we have to live in. Country in financial decline but happy to keep closing down pubs, clubs & shisha bars – you just couldn’t make it up.

The only normality at the moment is the fact that Englands faint hearted “Lions/Sheep” lost theie opening World Cup match against Italy: 2-1. Some things never change!

Another murder-nothing new then!

     An Islington (London) shisha cafe that repeatedly flouted the smoking ban has been hit with a £3,000 fine. More easy money for the now corrupted judicial system of this country. We have a law that basically kills off certain types of businesses and lines the pockets of those who decide on the format of such laws. What a crazy country we now live in!

All the proof you ever needed of corruption is here folks!

     We have stated all along that the EU directive was to use the courts to deter any would be sinners with regard to the smoking ban ban this latest conviction is far beyond the realms of  ‘the benefit of the doubt’ or even ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ – for the latter maxim has definitely been totally forgotten by our legal system and those that sit in judgement. Just prior to the smoking ban law being implemented  I was informed by a magistrate friend

 

Common sense does prevail

As the lunatics find the truth emerging and that their idiotic idealism will eventually fail completely we find that outdoor shisha smoking laws have been quickly amended in Souq Wafiq

 

Leeds Council – a new “Praying Mantis”

     Anyone taking any notice of what is going on ‘ooop north’ lately? Leeds Council have now decided that “More needs to be done to deal with the creeping health timebomb that is Leeds’s growing shisha culture, licensing bosses have been told.”

     A creeping timebomb??? Priceless really when consider that this “timebomb” has been going on for 3,000 years!

Utter stupidity!

I am sorry to have to say this but on this occasion I can find very little sympathy for the owner [Mr Rward Mrad] of an Acton (London) premises – a shisha cafe that wasn’t even a recognised cafe!

The EHO hero’s strike again!

Yet again we see, trumpetted by the media, that another shisha emporium has been fined a total of £5,400 for allowing people to socialise and smoke in a building expressly designed for people to….. err….. socialise & smoke!
