No Rights Norfolk (UK)

On Saturday 2nd September 2017, outside the Village Co-Op in Briston, at the end of the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP’s 2017 Village Tour, I congratulated Norman on his choice in our (Norfolk) County Councillor Steffan Aquarone, (who I met in Hindolveston in July to discuss ‘No Rights Norfolk’, and amongst other things, ARKs).

Norman Lamb MP: asked how he could help me, to which I explained that we (my daughter, my sons and I), would really like our case raised in Parliament to ensure that no other fifteen year old ‘girl-child’, her siblings, her mother, (or anyone else), anywhere, especially as the victims of crime (as we were at the time) – be put through all that we were living in North Norfolk, (in the boundary-changed constituency, formerly under North Norfolk MP the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb, now, that of ‘Broadland’ under the Rt. Hon. Keith Simpson MP).

As I said to Norman at the end of his 2015 Village Tour – “when they moved the constituency boundary and gave us Keith Simpson MP – they might just as well have given us a potato!” (As we discussed on Saturday, a potato would have been better – and would have cost Taxpayers an awful lot less money!)  N.B.  Information pertaining to our lack of rights living in the constituency of Keith Simpson – was previously provided to Keith Simpson MP (2014-2015/6) but he failed to take any action to protect our statutory rights, (and didn’t raise our case in Parliament as requested either).  An article previously posted regarding this comment and my previous meeting with Norman Lamb MP at the end of his 2015 Village Tour linked back here: An ARK Angel Account

I asked Norman if he could possibly raise our case with Lord Freud MP, whom as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, (in 2012), publicly stated “ALL self-employed single parents and sickness claimants ‘live in comfort’ on a few hundred quid annual wages – without taking risks” (and, on that basis of thought, axed free Legal Aid and any financial support for the victims of crime where prevented from earning a living or their self-employed earnings, as damages of the crime) – at the same time my daughter, my eldest son and I, were left stranded, stuck on a field in North Norfolk without comfort, without the use of the vehicle we’d purchased for our intended tour (floating eco-homes and ecological communities, EVNUK, and launching the ARK ourselves as ARK Angels), without:

  • Justice – without: Human Rights, Civil Rights, or Consumer Rights (protection)
  • Address (or redress)
  • Heat – through sub-zero temperatures the winter of (our) discontent 2012-2013
  • Usable vehicle for our intended tour
  • Electricity (or electric light) for six months
  • Any way to easily access a bath or laundry facilities (for six months)
    • We were often forced to excrete in carrier bags
    • For one week in 2013, my eldest son and I were forced to walk a two-mile-a-day round trip to collect drinking water (from the public toilets and the Quaker Friends Meeting House in the nearby town)
      • Given (ALL) the above, it wasn’t possible to complete the Home Study Plan – the application to Educate (Izzy) Otherwise was previously approved by the relevant authority (via Norfolk County Council)
        • HMRC Inland Revenues Tax Credits were stopped for my daughter later (after I explained the above change of circumstance) – because it wasn’t possible for us to complete the Home Study Plan – because we didn’t have any of the above rights protected living in Norfolk in the UK, (because Lord Freud MP was wrong, and we have the evidence to prove it, and the case against the suppliers)

WE (all) also need (free) Legal Bar-Pro-Bono help, assistance, and representation – if anyone can help please advise.

On the 2nd September 2017, outside the Village Co-Op in Briston, at the end of the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP’s 2017 Village Tour, I also quickly caught up with our local County Councillor Steffan Aquarone, while waiting in queue.

After I wrote to Steffan to explain our situation – as in ‘No Rights Norfolk’ – we met at his Hindolveston village surgery in July (2017), and grabbed a moment to quickly catch up.

In our previous meeting, in terms of my registering our case with The Courts as Litigant in Person (as Plaintiff, Claimant and as Appellant also representing my family and others), as Trading Standards advised we needed to register the (original) case against the Defendants with The County Court by October 2017, Steffan advised me to check with Norfolk County Council Trading Standards prior to submitting the draft case to The Courts.

I reported that I had duly rung Trading Standards, on Friday 18th August 2017, where I spoke with Conrad Meehan, (Lead Trading Standards Officer, Intelligence and Legal Enforcement Team at Norfolk Trading Standards), who informed me that Trading Standards could no longer provide advice – without payment of fee, (instead, I was referred to contact Citizens Advice, and advised that this was a different service from the Citizens Advice Bureau).

As I said to Steffan – “this really is right at the eleventh hour – I will have a serious problem explaining the entire legal case now to someone else ‘new’ to the case, to gain the advice needed to register the case with the County Court within this short time-frame”.

We keep getting passed from one UK government department to another – repeatedly – taking no end of time to say the same things all over again, to different people, writing different statements on different forms for each department in turn, (since Trading Standards failed to take action – and advised me to prepare the legal case myself).

Thank goodness (and a great big ‘THANK YOU’) for all those who have helped us – without who’s help (as I’ve said on numerous occasions to former Norfolk County Councillor, Accountant Adrian Dearnley) – I’m sure I would have expired by now.  (I.E.  Dealing with North Norfolk District Council – who threatened me with imprisonment due to the fact that I had insufficient funding to pay their Council Tax bill, due to the fact that we were robbed of our money through fraud, and I’ve been prevented from the opportunity of earning my income as anticipated since the rogue traders also supplied us with seriously faulty goods that were unfit for purpose, and because we don’t have rights protected living in Norfolk – because Lord Freud MP says this situation doesn’t exist).

Our local constituency MP Keith Simpson didn’t raise our case against the Secretary of State for the DWP in Parliament (or previously pass on our case for Norman Lamb MP to raise our case instead) when asked – but now, as our local constituency Councillors for Hindolveston are both Liberal Democrats (namely County Councillor Steffan Aquarone and District Councillor Pierre Butikofer) – we plead that Liberal Democrat Norman Lamb MP may.

As written to the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP in the documentation provided:

“If possible, we (my daughter, my sons and I), would very much appreciate it if Pierre Butikofer could help us in representing our case to North Norfolk District Council – with Steffan Aquarone helping us to deal with our situation with Norfolk County Council – and, (if possible), we would very much appreciate it if you could raise our case in Parliament.” 

I handed a letter To Norman Lamb MP – albeit not the best written, it covered some of the key issues – together with a copy of the NOTICE (served on the UK government by the Litigant), and, some of the reasons for purchasing the 100% ‘gas’ fuelled vehicle (as taken from my revised business plan) – in List of acheivements 2011-2012

With huge thanks to: the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP; Lib Dem. Councillors Steffan Aquarone and Pierre Butikofer; (former Norfolk County Councillor) Accountant Adrian Dearnley; Alicia Hull (North Norfolk Green Party); Amanda Huntridge; Avril Fox; Investigative Journalist Tony Gosling; Neil Godfrey – formerly Voluntary Norfolk; Ecotect Anthony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia, Howard and Jill Leftley, Ryburgh Parish Councillor Christopher Buxton, and everyone else and all our friends who have helped us to date, and for the help of our friend Emma Licence, (without who’s brilliant photos this page would be just printed text).

The 21st Century Prophecy

At the turn of the 21st Century, an expert in the construction sector gave a damming prophecy of doom.

Students of the prophet were taught why: “ALL THE SIGNS” showed a new global recession was imminent – and why this recession would be unlike any other recession before it.

The 20th Century had seen global debt rise, from a point on a line graph that was nigh on invisible in scale at the start of that century – compared to the figure of debt that rolled over onto the next page of the human story.

By the start of the 21st Century, the figure of debt already stood in the trillions – circa US$22Trillions of (combined) global governmental debt in fact, at the time the prophecy was delivered, in 2002.

Looking at the UK figures, it was easy to see what would happen when the recession hit.  (The only thing that couldn’t be seen clearly at the time, was the figure of debt that would be created by the prophesied recession).

At the time, the bankers were lending money ‘hand over fist’.

It wasn’t possible to walk into a bank – anywhere, it seemed – that wasn’t obviously trying to sell debt as if it were a ‘prime commodity’, with posters (and TV adverts) tempting customers into buying new homes, second homes, (multiple homes), to become landlords with property portfolios based on ‘buy-to-let’ mortgages, (based on the fact that the original homeowner’s property value had exceeded market predictions).

People were drawn in by marketing campaigns for new credit cards – buy now, pay for it later – buy a new car, have an all inclusive holiday, (go on – you deserve it)!

House prices, building prices, and land for building were all rocketing, (but wages weren’t).

When recession hit – it would leave governments (and people), in crisis.

The longer it was before the recession hit, the worse it would be for everyone, (bar the bankers).

By the time the recession hit six years later in 2008/2009, the global figure of debt had indeed been multiplied by the bankers, and, just as taught in the prophecy, the government (most governments), went on to bail out the bankers in much the same way they had in the last, much smaller recession, in the early 1990s.

Realistically, there was something seriously wrong with the architectural design for an economical system that went from booming to bust overnight – and students of the prophet were asked to consider ‘why’?

The bankers only stood to profit from the prophesied recession, in the long run at least – especially if the government bailed them out (as they had before).

In effect, the Taxpayers paid twice.

It was the Taxpayers’ deposits and investment savings that the bankers originally used to offset their loans, credit card debts, mortgages, (re-mortgages), etc., and it was the Taxpayers whom also effectively offset the total figure of debt too – through future earnings and the profits made by their employers.

Taxpayers also faced a future without the support of the welfare state – without ‘free’ access to Education, ‘free’ Medical Health services, or ‘free’ Legal Aid – since, if the government used the Taxpayers’ funds to bail out the bankers, it was obvious (looking at the figures), there would be insufficient funding left to cover the costs of running the welfare state in Britain.

Effectively, if the government were to use the Taxpayers’ funds to bail out the bankers – and any other ‘National Assets’ remaining at their disposal – then it could leave the government in breach of Human Rights Laws (granted Taxpayers and Citizens since the end of WWII).

If that proved to be the case, the 21st Century would start with a massive (global) deficit, and the removal of Human Rights granted and given in the 20th Century – putting mankind back into the dark ages.

There were already far too many people (and children) suffering from poverty, exclusion and lack of rights (even in the UK), facts denied publicly by far too many in fact, figures and facts seemingly swept under the rugs in ‘The City’.

Worst still, the recession was predicted to hit in two waves…

The first wave of recession would see governments all over the world running to the aid of the bankers – using everything at their disposal to bail out the bankers.

The second wave of recession would see a world in complete crisis.

There would be no more national assets left to sell – and no more Taxpayers’ funds left – to bail out the bankers.

Governments all over the world would face the 21st Century virtually bankrupt by the bankers’ over-sale of debt, and with a rising tide (quite literally) in terms of rising sea levels, tidal surges, tsunamis, and storm damages.

Droughts, flooding and famine were predicted, mutated viruses, plagues, (and more), and no government in the world would have the monetary resources left to protect their nations’ citizens from the worst effects of climate change.

Ordinarily, people in need in excluded groups turn to the non-profit sector – but by then, the non-profit ‘Third Sector’ would also be badly hit by the effects of the 21st Century recessions – effected by reduced donations and grants, and grants paid by central government to Local Authorities were also prophesied to be cut too.

Basically, ‘the people’ (all the little people), would be without all the rights granted to them in the 20th Century in the 21st Century.

There would be a Housing Crisis – the likes of which unseen since the end of WWII – and a virtual poverty pandemic.

When the second wave hit, it wouldn’t just be the poor tenant residents affected, it would be homeowners with insufficient funds to make their mortgage repayments, and others, who would find themselves repossessed of their land or property by the bankers.

The bankers would be directly responsible for the recessions, (but then, generally speaking, the bankers never had a conscience anyway).

As stated, there was something seriously wrong with the architectural design for a global economy that (repeatedly) went from booming to bust overnight – unless, that was actually part of the overall aim of the design from inception.

What were “ALL THE SIGNS” that showed that recession was imminent anyway?

House, land and building prices were all positively booming – the economy was inflating – and that was a sure sign that recession was imminent.

Historically, in fact, every time there was boom there was a bust.

IF all the governments bailed out the bankers without constraints – then the bankers would simply go on to do exactly what they had in overselling debt (again), albeit that, (in legal terms), if an architectural design or a design for ‘anything’ causes any damage (or damages), then the designer ‘the architect’ is professionally and personally liable.

(Someone, somewhere, really needed to come up with a design solution – and the solution had to be ethical, viable, and ecologically, environmentally, and economically, sustainable.)

Reference: (the prophet), ‘Ecotect’, Anthony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia, (2002), to students on the 2001-2002 academic course year of the EDEXCEL BTEC HNC in Building Studies.

N.B.  The prophecy (and HNC) led to an epiphany – a vision for the need for the ARK, leading subsequently to ethical design proposals for Eco-Designs, leading to Global ARK Projects ‘GAP’ social enterprises, designed to fill the GAPs in the mARKet known to exist from the 2002 prophecies.

Angels vs Demons

On one side of the Scales of Justice sit the (ARK) Angels representing the clear transparent light of NGO and not for profit – while on the other side, there is nothing but darkness…

We were robbed of our money by UK/International limited company number 02407157 – but were ultimately robbed of our Human Rights, Consumer Rights, Civil Rights and had access to Justice blocked, by the bankers, the UK government and UK government departments…

As Angels (as Ark Angels) we sit in ‘The Darkness’, shrouded in silence, battling to be heard – fighting for our rights and for Justice…

Dear God in Heaven – if Justice is Divine – then Please, let IT be Mine!

In 2012, Lord Freud MP was publicly quoted as telling (the world) that in the UK “ALL self-employed single parents and sickness claimants live in comfort on a few hundred quid annual wages without taking any risks” – and on that basis axed free Legal Aid blocking the roads to Justice for everyone with insufficient funding to pay for Solicitors, Lawyers and Barristers – especially for everyone who risked everything, (as we did).

A decade earlier – in 2002 – as students in CPD at The College of West Anglia, we were taught that ‘ALL THE SIGNS’ showed recession was imminent, (by the Ecotect, Anthony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer).

Yes, that’s right – lectures were given on the subject of the (then) predicted recession, in 2002 (on the 2001-2002 academic course year of the EDEXCEL BTEC HNC in Building Studies, in King’s Lynn in Norfolk), in which course we were also taught:

Ignorance is NO DEFENCE in a Court of Law

This causes a conundrum in reality – because – in order to work clearly and transparently, as required as AnArkAngel (as a social entrepreneur), obviously none of the authorities that took no heed of ‘ALL THE SIGNS’ that showed recession was imminent want anything to do with this case.

If – and when – our case is (finally) heard, then the world will know the truth…

The truth is that ALL the governments in the entire world had perfectly adequate opportunity to stop the bankers in their tracks – to stop the debt clock then, (in 2002).

The Global Debt Clock of The Economist Online – shows that from the point at which ‘ALL THE SIGNS’ showed recession was imminent in 2002, the combined global governmental figure of debt has been virtually tripled – from circa US$20Trillions to circa US$60Trillions.

Worst still (A) the combined global governmental figure of debt is (still) continuing to rise at the rate of circa US$100,000 per second and (B), as taught in 2002 anyway, there will soon be a second wave of recession…

What happens when (not if) the second wave of recession hits – when all the governments in the world are up to their (nation’s) ears in debt – well, of course, the bankers will own the world… (and all this world’s children and all future generations will be at the mercy of the bankers – to pay for the banker’s errors as the minions as workers and as slaves).

All the bankers in the world already own all the world’s assets anyway – (almost) everyone puts all their money into their bank accounts, all their most precious artefacts – all their mortgages, and all their title deeds, (all held by the banks).

Can the bankers really be trusted?  (Do the banks really have a conscience?)

No, of course they don’t – as clear shown by all the research collated in for the UK Green Party’s economics group, for their 2001 mini-conference in Manchester, as shown on the website: click to view research

As shown by the evidence, the Bank for International Settlements, (the BIS or “The BIZ”), has Nazi roots – it was once run by Adolf Hitler – and, as quoted on the website:

…it was used to launder money for the Nazis in World War II. Run by an inner elite representing the world’s major central banks it controls most of the transferable money in the world. It uses that money to draw national governments into debt for the IMF.

And – according to Wikipedia and other sources, the parent organisation of the IMF (the International Monetary Fund), is none other than the United Nations…

So who can we trust – and who can we turn to?

There is NO access to Justice – in Britain or anywhere else – regardless of the Human Rights Act, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Bill of Human Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights, Agenda 21, (or even UK Constitutional Law).

When people have no money they have NO RIGHTS.

Speaking as AnArkAngel – I have NO money – and, (as a UK citizen), I have no rights, (and because I don’t, nor do my children, who should).

It doesn’t really matter how much paperwork is produced – either by way of Human Rights Agendas, Bills, Declarations, or by actual  (monetary) bills – it is just printed paper… There is NO BODY actually ‘there’ to protect all the innocent people in the world.


As stated in opening, we (my children and I) were robbed of all our money by the fraud of (local) rogue traders number 02407157, but were ultimately robbed of all our rights by all the UK government departments dealing with our case files.

The County Council Trading Standards and the District Council left my children and I, (as the then victims of crime), to freeze to death (or survive) sub-zero temperatures, stuck on a field (in North Norfolk) for six months, where we were:

  • Without electricity or electric light (for six months)
  • Without any way to easily access either a bath or laundry facilities (for six months)
  • Often forced to excrete in carrier bags
  • Forced to walk a two-mile-a-day round trip to collect (drinking) water from the public toilets and the Quaker Friends Meeting House in the nearby town for one week in 2013
  • Under regular threat of:
    • Eviction
    • The Law – Legal Action – and The Courts
    • The High Sheriff
    • Bailiffs
    • Police
    • Imprisonment

Although we (finally) managed to move back into a house again on the 24th May 2013 – the threats have continued to date – because none of the UK government departments dealing with our case files have taken any account of the significant level of damages caused in this case, (and especially while I battled ever onwards, preparing the case as the Litigant in Person, as the Plaintiff, Claimant and Appellant, also representing my family’s rights, for all the damages caused to us, and to everyone else and all other non-profit organisations and NGOs I also represented at the time in 2012).

Each UK government department – in turn – has required that I/we prove our level of poverty in order to simply apply the UK government’s own level of financial support, (not designated for the surviving victims of crime), most specifically perhaps because Lord Freud MP, the Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) was most clear in stating that this situation doesn’t exist in the UK today – that ‘ALL’ self-employed single parents and sickness claimants live in comfort on a few hundred quid annual wages without taking any risks.

After my children and I risked all our available money on the vehicle – we were going to use as the flagship to launch the ARK social enterprises in 2012 – after almost a decade’s work (and a total family outlay well in excess of £45K in that time).

The suppliers stated that the (purple) Land Rover Defender 110 they were selling had a ‘brand new’ 100% gas fuelled V8 4.6 Litre engine that was specifically designed ‘from new’ to run 100% exclusively on gas, they stated was not like a converted petrol engine.

In fact, the engine was nothing more than a standard rover engine block – apparently it wasn’t even new, (it just appeared to others expert in the subject to be a reconditioned petrol engine tweaked by the suppliers) – and besides that, the Vehicle Registration Document clearly stated that the V8 engine was fuelled by ‘Heavy Oil’ (i.e. diesel).

It was a con – a fraud – and the ‘brand new’ engine first went seriously wrong in just six weeks.

The case was first registered with Trading Standards in March 2012.

Trading Standards said that – if they found we had a case against the suppliers they would take action against the suppliers – but when they did, they didn’t.

Instead, Trading Standards advised me to proceed to instruct my Solicitors – how could I pay for Solicitors when I only earned just £700 (gross) in twenty-two months – because the infernal car didn’t work, and because we didn’t get the refund to which we were entitled when requested (originally in March 2012)?

How could my three children and I live on £700 (gross) earned over twenty-two months, (when the District Council under the guidelines of the DWP, expected me to pay £200 PCM towards the rent for the house for my three children and I, plus all bills)?

There is NO welfare state benefit currently designed to support a zero wage – such as earned while preparing the legal case as the Litigant in Person, as the Plaintiff, the Claimant and Appellant, (as in this case) – only standard benefits.

Just as taught in the lecture room in 2002 – IF the UK government used the Taxpayers’ Funds to bail out the bankers – it would leave the UK government with an insufficient funding dilemma in terms of the costs of running the welfare state.

And, if the UK government were to simply axe back on welfare state benefits – it would leave the UK government and UK government departments in (serious) breach of Human Rights Laws – written to protect ‘the people’ since the end of WWII.

This is exactly what happened…


Legal Aid – Legal Representation – is now needed most urgently, from experts in the field of Human Rights Law, Consumer Law, and Civil Law, please contact via email to:

The Legal Case has now been drafted, but it is not possible to assess our own damages nor to put a price on our own heads – so please, help us if you possibly can.

If possible, we also need some form of sanctuary until the case is heard in the Courts – until we receive our refund and my loss of earnings is adequately compensated – and until my children and I receive compensation for all the damages caused in this case.  (We cannot – nor should we – continue to be threatened due to the level of poverty and austerity caused by this case.)

Please note that our case has already been registered with the County Council Trading Standards, the District Council, the LGO, HMRC Inland Revenues Tax Credits, Dame Linda Homer (when CEO of HMRC Tax Credits), Lord Freud MP, Iain Duncan-Smith MP, George Osborne MP, Ministers@DWP, Correspondence@DWP, the UN, (amongst others), and our case for the need for JustICE is currently held on ICE@DWP via the Independent Case Examiners office (at the DWP).

However, since our case surrounds the failings of the DWP and the Secretary of State for the DWP, (and the UK government’s failure to protect statutory Human Rights for UK citizens), and the ‘Independent’ Case Examiner is also a part of the DWP, there must be some question as to the logistics of the Independence of this.

(With huge thanks to all who have already helped and who have tried to help us to date, including: ARK Co-Founder and Patron Saint of the Ark Angels Organisation Avril Fox, Neil Godfrey/Voluntary Norfolk, Alicia Hull of the North Norfolk Green Party, Howard and Jill Leftley, Norfolk Citizens Advice Bureau ‘NCAB’, Norfolk County Councillor Adrian Dearnley, Investigative Journalist Tony Gosling, and of course my mentor – Ecotect Anthony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia.)




An ARK Angel Account

With Norman Lamb MP 1

I caught up with the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP at the end of his 2015 village tour – the photograph (above), was taken by a friend outside the Village Co-Op in Briston, to mark the occasion.

Although Norman Lamb MP is not now our constituency MP for the village of Hindolveston, he was, (somebody, somewhere, decided to move the constituency boundaries), but we now have the Rt. Hon. Keith Simpson MP instead.

As I said to Norman Lamb MP, I needed to speak with him, because our case file was originally opened with him when he was our constituency MP – and reminded him in brief of our previous situation, then sped through a brief catch-up of what’s been going on under the seat of the Rt. Hon. Keith Simpson MP.

As I said, “when ‘they’ moved the constituency boundary and gave us Keith Simpson MP – they might just as well have given us a potato!”

In catch up, I explained that since we first met in 2009, (reminding him of the aims of Global ARK Projects ‘GAP’ social enterprises as discussed in meeting, in short, to float the non-profit sector – to help to build sustainable community settlements, such as Eco-Villages, in turn to help people to build their own affordable and sustainable eco-homes, to live in autonomous communities – allowing people the opportunity they need to live free from the need to claim any benefits, whatsoever – the aim being in turn to save the Local Authority funds, knowing recession was imminent from the 2002 lectures given by Tony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia), I also explained that, since then, I’d been:

  • Promoted to the position of Group Moderator at the Eco-Village Network UK, (EVNUK), by Investigative Journalist Tony Gosling, (who also helms EVNUK) – and explained in brief that the ecovillage network UK is part of the European ecovillage network, which is in turn all a part of the Global Ecovillage Network ‘GEN’, that has set important planning precedent on a global scale, setting the benchmark for the next generation of ecovillage (type) sustainable community settlements to follow, ‘NextGEN’, and gave a brief description on the flyer shown in my hand in the photograph, (previously published on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, plus Wiser Earth, as it was then) – I passed the flyer to Norman, and explained our aims to show the work of the Eco-Village Network UK, Permaculture, etc.
  • Asked to become an Ambassador for Imagine Rural Development Initiative (IRDI) Zambia, (ecovillage), by the visionary, Steven Putter. Like most ecovillages, IRDI has an educational foundation, benefitting communities as a not-for-profit, and grows Moringa, following basic Permaculture ecological and organic land stewarding principals. (I didn’t go into the healing properties of Moringa – I didn’t have the PDFs with me, but I did explain a little about the basis of Open Source Ecology, OSE.)
  • Asked to sell my research and to make the presentation materials too, for students studying units on the (Pearson) EDEXCEL BTEC subsidiary diploma in Environmental Sustainability, (by my mentor, Tony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia, at a meeting held at The College in April 2011, organised to discuss the following):
  • Gained planning approvals for an ecological architectural design project in King’s Lynn, that was going to be partnered with The College of West Anglia through Tony Smith, to provide students with ‘Open Door’ access to the ‘eco-design’ construction project, which was going to be broadcast live into the lecture room, and allow students access to the building and to monitor the alternative and renewable technologies that were going to be installed. Again, in this ecological design, the aim was to hit the highest possible ecological architectural design – for this to be used as teaching resources, for build code Level 6+, (for the highest possible GREEN design and build standards, partnered throughout, and providing Open Source Ecology by way of teaching materials).
  • Asked to represent veteran environmentalist and GREEN design expert (and published author), Avril Fox, author of: Common Malaysian Moths (© Copyright Longman Group UK Limited), The Emerging Ethic, and I.E. GREEN DESIGN, (first published by Architecture Design and Technology Press London in 1989, this book is also © 1989 Copyright Longman Group UK Limited, ISBN: 1 85454 200 1), as an Agent. As an Agent for Avril Fox, Avril also asked me to represent her work to publishers, her autobiography, ‘The Long Road To Realism’, (the net profits from which Avril said should cover my costs for running the ARK social enterprises, and basically to cover the costs of building the ARK as we had all seen her – as Avril was also one of the founding officers of our own intentional Eco-Village showcase community, ‘TAP’ the Tree ARK Project, as we had already discussed with Norman Lamb at our meeting in 2009 – I reminded Norman that Michelle, (ARK’s Secretary at the time), was also present at the meeting, and that the presentation folder we gave to Norman in that meeting, had letters in support from co-founder Avril Fox, whom Norman had also previously been in correspondence, regarding similar proposals for sustainable community living projects.
  • Asked to submit ARK’s proposals for the Green Economy contest held in 2011, at Climate CoLab (MIT) – in fact, I was asked to submit this (also representing Avril Fox in this ecological and ethical design for a very green eco-no-money too), by ‘Blindspotter’ James Greyson, Head of the Blindspot Think Tank (not-for-profit organisation).
  • Asked to write an article for the Free School in Panoramic Thinking in Eastern Europe
  • Asked to write an article for in India.

And more – and then I explained to Norman that I’d not been able to do any of this – because my children and I were fraudulently sold a seriously faulty vehicle. In fact, after spending out circa £40K of our own money on all the equipment needed for me to travel with my children in order to accomplish all the above, (and more), we discovered that we had been fraudulently miss-sold a seriously faulty vehicle to use for our intended tour of the UK and EU.

And that was why I needed to talk to the Rt. Hon. Norman Lamb MP in person, because of all the damages caused, not just professionally, but also personally to my children and I.

My children’s rights were never considered a priority – but they should have been protected, by statutory human and consumer rights laws, and (because I am also a rurally isolated self-employed single mother), by the terms of Agenda 21 as it was originally issued at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, and later adopted by the UK Government.

I went on to explain to Norman Lamb MP what I had previously written to Keith Simpson MP, in regards to the fact that – instead of launching the ARK social enterprises in 2012 (as we had intended – to broadcast the work of the Ecovillage Network, Permaculture, Open Source Ecology, and lots more), my children and I ended up stuck on a field in North Norfolk, (when we were forced to abandon the vehicle in Intwood, near Cringleford, the week the power steering unit stopped working and the throttle cable snapped).

Our situation was explained to Trading Standards (at Norfolk County Council), but they didn’t prioritize our case – even though my daughter was only fifteen at the time – so they should have at least protected her consumer rights, human rights and civil rights, but they didn’t.

I explained to Norman Lamb what I had already explained to Keith Simpson, in that – as the surviving victims of crime, my children and I were:

  1. Left bereft of our refund (for the faulty vehicle that had, after all, been sold under false pretences)
  2. Left stranded on a field in North Norfolk from the end of November 2012 until the 24th May 2013 (for six months)
  3. Forced to endure sub-zero temperatures without internal heat for the most part of the winter of our discontent (2012-2013)
  4. Without electricity or electric light for six months
  5. Without any easy way by which to access either a bath or laundry facilities for six months
  6. Often forced to excrete in carrier bags
  7. Forced to walk a two-mile-a-day round trip to collect drinking water from the public toilets and the Quaker Friends Meeting House in the nearby town for one week (in 2013)

As I said, my daughter was only fifteen years of age at the time – and she was badly affected by her loss of Human Rights, Consumer Rights, and Civil Rights, (and went on to suffer from the effects of anxiety, stress, and depression, until treated by the Norfolk Mental Health team), as Minister for Health, I thought Norman should know.

We blame the UK Government for the damages that spiralled from the original crime of the fraud against us – without Trading Standards taking any action, and without having access to free Legal Aid, (as I said) – my children and I have no access to Justice at all. It’s all very well Lord Freud MP saying “ALL self-employed single parents and sickness claimants live in comfort on a few hundred quid annual wages without taking risks” – but, as I pointed out, that simply isn’t true is it, as proven by our own case alone.

In effect, on the basis of the incorrect facts, when Lord Freud MP axed access to free Legal Aid, (as shown by our own case), Lord Freud MP broke International Human Rights Laws protecting the right of the child, (of all innocents in fact), with these cuts (and more) sanctioned by the then PM David Cameron.

I only earned just £700 between January 2012 until October 2013, (and yet then North Norfolk District Council needed proof of poverty, and also failed to factor in the sum that had just been spent in purchasing all the equipment needed for me to do my job – to earn my money, to promote ecological design solutions such as Ecovillages and Permaculture, etc., and to launch the ARK social enteprises, (as well as to get Avril Fox’s autobiography ‘The Long Road To Realism’ to the publishers, to raise funds for Eco-Villages, and the ecovillage network UK, as discussed with Tony Gosling in meeting at the Gathering at Monkton Wyld Court, held early in October 2011), and had the other commissions to work on too – all required me to travel, (with my children), and for that, we needed a mobile home and a vehicle to tow it.

My children and I couldn’t pull our 3 ton caravan by hand – although we had a go just to see if we could – because we were petrified stuck on that field in North Norfolk, (as described in the full report).

I’d written the full report in preparation for our legal case for appeal against HMRC Inland Revenues Tax Credits decision to axe Child Tax Credits for my daughter in 2014 – after we had already been threatened with eviction by ‘social’ landlords, Broadland Housing Association, (after North Norfolk District Council refused to accept the fact that, actually, my children and I were the surviving victims of crime, and I hadn’t actually earned any more than just £700 from January 2012 to October 2013, and hence had NO money to pay the rent, and it took NNDC longer to process the claim than it did for Broadland to threaten eviction).

As I explained to Norman Lamb, my children and I have had enough – this is a ridiculous situation – and I asked if Norman Lamb could represent us, (rather than Keith Simpson MP), or even legally, (as a qualified Solicitor).

Unfortunately, Norman couldn’t – it was down to Keith Simpson MP to do something to protect us, (he couldn’t because we were no longer in his constituency), and as he had also retired as a solicitor, he couldn’t either, as he no longer had insurances or access to The Bar.

At least I managed to explain that, in the Court hearings, Norman Lamb MP may well be asked to be a witness, for all that we intended to do by launching the ARK social enterprises, (from 2009 to 2012, onwards), and that we did indeed have previous meetings, in 2009, and again in 2011, when Norman Lamb MP opened the new Cromer office in Merchant’s Place, for Voluntary Norfolk, (formerly NOAH), when I also reminded Norman of our previous meeting regarding the ARK social enterprises, when I explained first, that the effects of the recession were predicted, and taught, in 2002 on the EDEXCEL BTEC HNC in Building Studies by Tony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia, leading to the original inception for the ARK social enterprises, (from the original vision I had in the lecture room when Tony was depicting the fall-out effects of the, then predicted, recession), and reminded Norman Lamb that when I met him also briefly at Voluntary Norfolk’s opening of the Merchant’s Place offices in Cromer, I’d made a rude remark about not being able to understand how it was that the UK Government got caught with it’s trousers down.

If I knew that recession was coming from 2002 – having paid to go to The College to learn these facts – then there is absolutely no excuse for the UK Government (or any other) to have been caught with their trousers down.

But of course, they couldn’t have been really…

What wasn’t said in the lecture room at the time was that, the previous year, (in 2001), in preparation for the UK GREEN Party’s economics group for the GREEN mini-conference (held in Manchester, England), a serious level of readily available and published research was collated in regards to the subject of the BIS, the central bankers’ bank, as detailed collated and shown on the website:

The Bank for International Settlements has it’s roots based in Nazi foundations, (it laundered the gold looted by the Nazis in WWII). It was founded in 1930 by the world’s central banks, and from the outset, had a clause built-in to its founding documents that excluded governmental interference and jurisdiction, (effecting the bankers continuation, to work free from all rules of democratic consensus).

As quoted on the website link above: the Bank for International Settlements (otherwise known as the BIS, or as spoken, “the BIZ”), based in Basel in Switzerland, is “Run by an inner elite representing the world’s major central banks it controls most of the transferable money in the world. It uses that money to draw national governments into debt for the IMF.”

The Nazis may have lost the war, but they went on to win the world nonetheless.

For example, at the time that it was possible to predict the next recession, (in 2002), the total combined governmental figure of debt stood in the region of US$22Trillions, since when the BIZ went on to achieve it’s aims, and within just a (dirty) dozen years over-doubled the mountain of debt that stood (still) from the 1980s build-up to the recession of the early 1990s, to a sum of debt in excess of US$54Trillions.

But even that wasn’t enough – and, (as taught in the lecture room at the time), no matter how many leaders of governments may state that recession is over, the total sum of debt has continued to rise ever since, currently at the rate of sum US$100,000 per second, equating to circa US$58Trillions today, (still rising).

In fact, the only way back out of recession – as students were taught on the EDEXCEL BTEC HNC in Building Studies, was for people to build their own affordable eco-homes in their own Eco-Village (type) carbon neutral sustainable community living projects – the reference for which given at the time provided for students to further research and for their own design inspiration, was the website (Canolfan y Dechnoleg Amgen in Wales – the Centre for Alternative Technology, aka CAT Eco-Village), reference: Tony Smith MA, Architect and Lecturer at The College of West Anglia, King’s Lynn.

The only alternative would be for the UK Government to cut back on all (welfare) state funded benefits, supporting services (including the NHS), and grants paid to Local Government offices and the non-profit sector (even further than the cuts already metred since the far smaller recession of the early 1990s) – and in which case, the UK Government could well end up failing to follow International Human Rights Laws written since the end of WWII – which, (as shown by our own case alone, and as explained to Norman Lamb MP), is exactly what the UK Government has done in fact, (failing to do it’s job to protect the people they are paid to serve when they did so).

There were already far too many people in excluded groups living in the UK – the UK Government couldn’t just carry on sweeping all their facts and figures under the rugs of Westminster or Number 10 – the rug would be up to the ceiling, (as it is now in fact, as explained to Norman Lamb MP, who can’t help since we have a rather large potato in the way here now, spud it)!

We NEED to get back to meet everyone (and more) as we did at The Gathering held in early October 2011, at Monkton Wyld Court – but how, (without any money, it was all spent out on all the equipment needed to travel, to do all the work I was commissioned to do in 2011/2012, and to exhibit and broadcast the work of the Eco-Village Network UK, as a Group Moderator at all the GREEN Build Events, GREEN Design Shows, Eco-Festivals, Eco-Conferences, Eco-Build Events, and of course, ALL the BIG GREEN GATHERINGS)!?

LOL – Ironic, or what!?

I should perhaps also close this account, by recounting that I explained to Norman Lamb MP, (as MP for North Norfolk), that I did have a brilliant meeting with Mark Ashwell, the Senior Planning Strategy Manager at North Norfolk District Council (in October 2014), and that the meeting notes for the meeting, (in which we discussed the building of Eco-Village type community settlements in Norfolk), along with three other emails, had all been sent to Norman Lamb MP first (to catch up from where we last left-off), and then to Keith Simpson MP, (so he could also catch up with the original case file opened when Norman was our Constituency MP), and urged Norman to look at the emails, (albeit that they did include rather a lot of information and facts pertinent to our position, brief notes covering the subject of our lack of rights in Britain were also provided to Norman Lamb MP, shown in the photograph below)!
