#walrustrial: ARNOLD OVERBOARD!

So farewell then ARNOLD “WINDY” MILLER, head of pollution control at Bristol City Council. Anyone got the foggiest idea what’s happened to him?

Windy was, of course, Mark Curtis’s boss. Curtis being the man who admitted under oath in open court that the city council’s prosecution last month of Misha Simmonite for noise pollution was due to a VENDETTA led by Lib Dem councillor, Gary “Fuckbucket” Hopkins.

There’s also some recorded evidence knocking around of Windy blithely explaining that companies shouldn’t be prosecuted if they are trying to mitigate their pollution.

A policy he’s carried out beyond the letter where Sims Metal, friends of the Merchant Venturers, in Avonmouth are concerned while he strangely overlooked it when it came to Ms Simmonite and the thousands she spent on noise mitigation at her Knowle Road property.

Why the double standards we wonder?

Anyway, Let’s hope Arnold enjoys his luxury retirement at our (and who knows who else’s?) expense.

#walrustrial: OI! HOPKINS YOU SLEAZY LITTLE CROOK

One member of the public isn’t fucking about when it comes to FUCKBUCKET HOPKINS, the bent local Lib Dem leader and councillor.

And he’s even issued an open invitation to Fuckbucket to sue him if he’s lying.

Enjoy …

Subject: The shit finally hits the fan Gary Hopkins – you were warned

Dear Gary, I want you to know that I have read and digested the comments that you have made in various places, your e-focus leaflets, letters circulated to residents, e-mails to BCC officials etc, but most damningly the multi-agency ASBO meetings that you personally instigated as part of your long running vendetta against my friend Ms Simmonite. It is a fact that you lied in those multi-agency meetings, and made up grossly defamatory statements about her to enable your agenda against her to be furthered. We have only recently had sight of these documents in late December 2014 via the disclosure process in the magistrates court immediately prior to the trial commencing– a disclosure process which BCC officials deliberately attempted to thwart for obvious reasons. Doubtless, you thought you could make up whatever vile shit you liked about her in those secret, ASBO meetings because none of it would ever see the light of day. However, you were wrong, and hopefully your conniving and dishonesty in attempting to destroy my friend will be your own undoing.

We are digging, hard, as we have suspected for some time that you were behind the totally unjustified HMO prosecution, in 2010 and are close to unearthing the proof behind why you began this groundless campaign of intimidation, harassment and destruction against her. Fortunately for me, I live in Bath, and have many friends in the Lib Dem movement, and I’m not afraid to go up against you. You may be a nasty bully – but Mark Curtis – heaven knows why – finally had the courage to out you for what you are – a despicable, vindictive, lying, machinating toad, who deserves to be removed from office forthwith, along with the EHOs who behaved so appallingly in conniving with you in your disgusting attempt to destroy my friend.

We are going to make sure you get your just desserts, as a liar, a deceitful nasty bully and a miss-user of public office for your personal ends. You deserve no compassion, for what you did and continue to do to her, is appalling beyond belief.

I will be attaching to a subsequent email, which you and the other councillors should receive within the next 48 hours, the un-redacted minutes of the ASBO meetings that you instigated, and it should be clear to all who read them that you have lied, and where you haven’t lied, you have grossly exaggerated in order to carry out your vendetta against Ms Simmonite. I say it again, in public, that YOU ARE A LIAR, YOU ARE DISHONEST, AND YOU ARE VINDICTIVE, AND FURTHER, YOU HAVE SERIOUSLY ABUSED YOUR PUBLIC OFFICE OF COUNCILLOR TO ATTEMPT TO DESTROY MY FRIEND IN A PERSONAL VENDETTA AGASINT HER. I am almost certain you will not sue me for libel, or slander or defamation – for this simple reason – BECAUSE IT’S TRUE – and we can prove it. If you even attempt to sue me, you will fall harder and faster than you have ever done in your life Mr Hopkins.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I HAVE DELIBERATELY PUBLISHED THIS BY E-MAILING IT TO ALL THE COUNCILLORS ON BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL, AS WELL AS ALL THE NEWSPAPERS, THE TV STATIONS AND THE RADIO STATIONS. I HEREBY CALL YOU OUT AS A LIAR, A COWARD, A BULLY, A DISHONEST PERSON WITHOUT A SHRED OF CONSCIENCE – WHILST ALL THE TIME YOU MASQUERADE AS AN HONEST UPRIGHT CITIZEN – EVEN THOUGH NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

Kind regards Philip

#walrustrial HOPKINS’ AND COUNCIL’S STAR WITNESS EXPOSED AS A RACIST

‘Kind But Still’, Councillor Gary Hopkins, ink and brush, 2013, Jeff from Bedminster

‘Kind But Still’, Councillor Gary Hopkins, ink and brush, 2013, Jeff from Bedminster

What was supposed to be the last day of the WALRUS TRIAL yesterday at Bristol Magistrates Court, where Councillor Gary “FUCKBUCKET” Hopkins has been personally intervening to have the GOTHIC MANSION and TOWN HOUSE (Bristolian passim) prosecuted for noise pollution, predictably descended into an expensive farce.

First, inept magistrates ruled that TWO defence witnesses, who may have confirmed the existence of a VENDETTA by Hopkins – already been exposed in open court by senior city council Environmental Health Officer Mark Curtis last week – could not take the stand. Bristol City Council then attempted to have another defence witness PROSECUTED for contempt of court for discussing the case on Twitter.

Following hours of legal argument and delay, the trial finally recommenced in the late afternoon and featured a defence witness, Ms X, who had stayed at the TOWN HOUSE. She revealed that not only did her group not make any noise during their stay as they had young children in bed by 9.00pm but that the council’s star witness, JOHNATHAN ROSS of KNOWLE ROAD, was a RACIST who had HARASSED her during her stay.

Ms X revealed that this scumbag Ross, an associate of Fuckbucket’s and a serial complainer about noise to a receptive council, constantly banged on their door one evening to complain about the noise from a film on DVD they were watching. The next day Ross called her mixed race son a “MONKEY” and a “GOLLIWOG” in the street. The following evening he was once again complaining. This time about the noise generated from music from an Ipod dock.

Ross is quite transparently an offensive and deluded nutter. Just the man to get in to supply hearsay evidence for Hopkins and his crew of bent council officers then!

An already shaky prosecution is now in crisis. Having ‘lost’ TWO logbooks recording alleged incidences of noise at the Town House and having installed sound equipment that revealed NO EVIDENCE of any noise at the house at all, the council is now totally reliant on the kind of evidence supplied by a known RACIST and OBSESSIVE, Ross.

Due to the massive delays yesterday, the trial now has been adjourned until 12 January next year. How much this is costing the council taxpayer is anyone’s guess. But we’ve been assured a figure of £50k is not unrealistic.

#walrustrial GET HOPKINS!

GARY “FUCKBUCKET” HOPKINS is one of those people that continually “get away with murder” because they’re so intimidating that no-one is prepared to confront them. Slowly but surely they trample over other people and their lives until they reach the top … Or someone has the balls to stand up to them. This is how all dictators operate.

It’s similar to how sex abusers and rapists like Jimmy Saville and others got away with it for years. They were so powerful and, crucially, NASTY and RUTHLESS that no-one would dare call them to book because of a very justified fear of serious retribution. Just look at how the paedophiles at Westminster have, literally, got away with murder.

However, once enough momentum builds, people can be caught and stopped. But to do this people have to stand up and be counted. We have to stop FUCKBUCKET’s strange (possibly Masonic) immunity protecting him any longer. All dictators can be toppled . All that’s needed is people willing to stand up and be counted and the rest is history.

We want to bring the loathsome monster FUCKBUCKET HOPKINS to book and stop him destroying anyone else. To do this,  we need to make as many people as possible aware that there is someone prepared to stand up to him and with the help of The BRISTOLIAN put a stop to this nonsense.

The person who’s willing to stand up to him is a woman called MISHA SIMMONITE who runs the GOTHIC MANSION. A place for family groups to stay in Bristol. Based (unfortunately for her) in Knowle, FUCKBUCKET’s  personal fiefdom. Hopkins has been running a highly personal and VICIOUS VENDETTA against Ms Simmonite for over two years now. Using all the resources available to him at Bristol City Council.

Don’t believe the bullshit and lies peddled about Misha by Fuckbucket and his spineless cohorts. Someone at last has had the guts to say it how it is. Gary Hopkins has a PERSONAL VENDETTA against Ms Simmonite. Well done Environmental Health Officer (EHO) MARK CURTIS for having the guts to say that. Let’s not let that statement in the witness box be in vain.

Hopkins’ NETWORK OF CORRUPTION is like a spider’s web, creeping poison ivy or an octopus. It has tendrils and offshoots all over the place. He is intimately connected with, or has power over, the following people: his fellow Lib Dem ward councillor CHRIS DAVIS, EHO DYLAN DAVIES, EHO JOHN SINNOT, NIGEL BUTLER in planning, STEPHEN DAVEY a SENIOR COPPER at Broadbury Road Police Station, Ferguson at the docks and many more that we don’t know about  … Yet!

All these people seem willing to do his bidding. Either for their own personal advancement or because they are frightened of him because they have seen what he has done to others who tried to stand up to him so they just do as he says.

There may be other people who have been subjected to INTIMIDATION or who have witnessed some CORRUPTION or ABUSE OF POWER over the years. Whatever it is, we urge you to join in this campaign to establish the true nature of Gary Hopkins’ reign of terror over the people of Knowle, Bristol and Bristol City Council and “out” this unscrupulous operator once and for all.

“Out” him for what he really is. A GREAT BIG NASTY BULLY who has no more compunction about destroying people’s lives than most people have about swatting a fly. We need to hear from you with any evidence of what this LOATHSOME TOAD has got up to over the years. Even if it goes back 20 years, it’s still relevant right now.

Don’t be afraid to act – contact us now on s-norman123@hotmail.co.uk or andrewforsey@hotmail.com

The case ends tomorrow at Bristol Magistrates Court (free entry) … not to be missed!

‘Local Taxi Driver’, Councillor Gary Hopkins, ink, 2013, Durston Fletcher

Steve Norman’s received a reply to his email sent to all councillors last night pointing out that their local authority’s resources and officers have been used to pursue a PERSONAL VENDETTA against a member of the public on behalf of Bristol City Council’s Lib Dem leader, Gary “FUCKBUCKET” Hopkins.

And what a reply! It comes from none other than former Bristol Tory boss and all-round twat, PETER ABRAHAM. Abraham’s combination of stupidity and pomposity and his puppy-like willingness to turn a blind eye to corruption at the council make him an ideal spokesman for all Bristol City Councillors.

And Abraham is no stranger to sharp practice himself is he? Wasn’t he the chair of the Public Rights of Way Committee that UNLAWFULLY AGREED to allow billionaire Steve Lansdown to build a football stadium on a Town Green? A case that eventually ended up in the High Court with Bristol City Council unable to offer any defence.

Below is Abraham’s email in full. Below that we’ve Fisked it for you to reveal our councillors’ ignorance and stupidity in all its glory.

Good Evening

I find it very difficult to follow what allegations you are making and a letter sent to all members does not seem to me to be the most responsible way of deal with this issue, I do not understand your involvement and if you have information please summit them to the Head of Legal Services.

I also find the political edge to your email again not the best way of dealing with any issue which might have a case to answer.

The member officer relationship is a very important to good governance of our city and I would wish any allegations to be fairly and properly investigated.

Yours

Cllr. Peter Abraham

“BRISTOL : THE BEST CITY IN BRITAIN ” The Sunday Times.

Our comments in red:

I find it very difficult to follow what allegations you are making [Can’t this thick Tory shit read? The allegations are that one of your officers committed PERJURY and the other admitted to helping a councillor organise a VENDETTA against a member of the public you gormless fucking halfwit] and a letter sent to all members does not seem to me to be the most responsible way of deal with this issue [Well, how fucking stupid. Writing to complain about corruption to the people who are actually in charge of the organisation. Why would they want to know about that? It might spoil the smooth running of their pointless meetings], I do not understand your involvement [How dare a member of the public get involved in Abraham’s council going about its bent business!] and if you have information please summit them to the Head of Legal Services [Good idea. Submit a complaint to the head of one of the departments involved in the corruption. We’ve seen emails from Abraham’s Legal Services regarding the detail of the ongoing court case that have been openly copied into Gary Hopkins. This is so unusual it’s entirely unprecedented. Why is confidential legal information being shared with a councillor? This usually never happens. A councillor should not be party to that level of detail. Especially as the information relates to an action against a house in Knowle Road in the Windmill Hill Ward. Hopkins is, of course, the councillor for Knowle. What exactly’s the point in complaining to a bent manager about their bent service? They’ll just do what they always do. Cover it up and lie to councillors about it.]

I also find the political edge to your email again not the best way of dealing with any issue which might have a case to answer [A Mickey Mouse politician like Abraham complaining about politics? What the fuck?]

The member officer relationship is a very important to good governance of our city and I would wish any allegations to be fairly and properly investigated [So who’s going to investigate? Your bent legal services or your bent Internal Audit? Why don’t out councillors get off their lazy, underemployed arses and do it themselves? And do it properly. Or are they scared what they might discover?]

Over the last eighteen months The BRISTOLIAN has exposed corruption in the council’s Markets Service, the Cash-in-Transit Service, among facilities managers, the Docks Service, the Internal Audit department and, now, Environmental Health. The Planning Department are also now seriously implicated in this latest piece of council corruption.

How much longer do councillors intend to sit on their arses doing nothing, pretending there isn’t a problem in an organisation that clearly appears to be bent from top to bottom?

Bristol City Council isn’t a public service organisation run for the benefit of the people of Bristol any more. It’s a nasty little gangster organisation run for the benefit of a few managers and councillors.

Something must be done.

Dear Councillor,

I feel I must bring the following to your attention as a matter of urgency.

This afternoon a senior pollution control officer stated in the Bristol Magistrates Court – while on the witness stand and under oath – that Councillor Gary Hopkins has a personal vendetta against the defendant in the case in which he was giving evidence.

In addition to this alarming fact, the defendant has powerful evidence to show that a second pollution control officer has openly perjured himself under oath.

It begs the question as to why or how a councillor has been able to influence officers in the conduct of their office? Clearly Mark Curtis was not prepared to take the fall for Councillor Hopkins.

I further hope that other councillors will rally around Mark Curtis and support him in what I have no doubt will turn into a witch-hunt to have him dismissed.

The defendant in this case is the same defendant who was denied planning permission recently for the Gothic Mansion, 100 Redcatch Road. Again one can only assume that Councillor Hopkins was involved behind the scene in orchestrating this refusal because he was the person who actually called this planning matter before committee. The very same committee in which I accused Mr Calabrese of being corrupt.

In light of today’s revelation, Mr Woodman should note, that I feel somewhat vindicated.

I have no doubt that this particular case will end up costing tax payers tens of thousands of pounds and all because an overgrown bully, Gary Hopkins, wanted to run a vendetta against a citizen of Bristol who stood up to him.

Unfortunately what has been disclosed here is only a fraction of the evidence that supports Mark Curtis’ statement. However I am unable to disclose further evidence at this stage as it would be prejudicial to the case and because it has not yet been heard in open court. Methinks a big scandal is about to hit the Lib Dems and the big house on the green.

Yours Sincerely

 

Stephen Norman

The case continues tomorrow and Monday at Bristol Magistrates Court (free entry) …

KNOWLE NOISE ANNOYS?

>> HOPKINS, THE “TRAINED EAR” AND THE GREAT LANDVEST MYSTERY

‘Meat Zeppelin’, Councillor Gary Hopkins, watercolours, 2013, @guriben

‘Meat Zeppelin’, Councillor Gary Hopkins, watercolours, 2013, @guriben

BRISTOL City Council boss, Senior Environmental Health Officer, MARK ‘BUNGLE’ CURTIS displays an interesting approach to his enforcement work.

Up in leafy Knowle he’s been showing zero tolerance to noise pollution, slapping a noise abatement notice on the so-called TOWN HOUSE, a business hiring out a large house for family gatherings. They also run the GOTHIC MANSION on Redcatch Road, which has recently been refused retrospective planning permission because of just one verified complaint and lots and lots of hearsay evidence.

Indeed, so enthusiastic is Bungle to prevent pollution in the leafy south Bristol suburb many neighbours of the Town House and the Gothic Mansion claim to have never heard any noise from either place at all!

However this hasn’t stopped the local councillor, GARY ‘FUCKBUCKET’ HOPKINS, who resides a long way from either house on the other side of Redcatch Park, from running a one man campaign against the business via his regular excruciating assault on the English language, the Lib Dem Focus leaflet for Knowle.

The few local supporters FUCKBUCKET has managed to recruit to his campaign also display similar signs of mental disorder towards both the Town House and the Gothic Mansion. One neighbour, when visited by the owners of the nearby mansion to discuss any problems, opened his door and announced, “I have dealings with LANDVEST,” and promptly shut the door again.

Why would anyone care if this neighbour has dealings with Landvest? A PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT COMPANY registered in the Isle of Man, presumably for tax reasons, who recently built a load of executive homes on land next to the Gothic Mansion on the site of the old St Peters cancer hospice.

It’s also reputed that Landvest got the land despite bidding £150k less for it than a local consortium headed by that old friend of The BRISTOLIAN, Bristol Labour leader HRH Helen of Holland.

So far, so murky. But now we hear that pollution control man BUNGLE, having issued the paperwork to get the Town House in court and fine them in the region of £140k for noise is now backing out and getting the council’s legal team to settle out-of-court.

Why would that be? Does Bungle not want these local witnesses with “dealings with Landvest” and his ‘evidence’ – all of which is based on his ‘trained ear’ rather than from certified audio reports from the calibrated equipment he has access to – cross-examined in court?

This is a strange – and expensive – turn of events when you consider the council will happily settle the case if the defendants agree to cover their own legal costs. Thus dumping us, the council taxpayer, with a large bill for the legal costs BUNGLE and FUCKBUCKET have run up over their weird Knowle NOISE OBSESSION.

Meanwhile, over in the working class suburb of AVONMOUTH, we find Bungle taking a very different approach to enforcement when there’s no obsessive Lib Dem councillor with an agenda; no shady property firm in the background; lots of certified audio reports from calibrated equipment and a set of very credible witnesses able to back up their claims and itching for action.

The SIMS METAL plant at Avonmouth docks has been, since at least 2010, the subject of literally hundreds of RECORDED COMPLAINTS for noise and dust pollution. While whistleblowers have come forward and stated that noise and dust suppression equipment has not been used at the plant for years, apparently with the full knowledge of the plant’s regulators Bristol City Council and the Environment Agency.

However, the council boss responsible, BUNGLE, has done NOTHING whatsoever about the plant. It seems, in this case, Bungle popping down for a friendly chat over a cuppa and a slice of cake every now and then with the wealthy businessmen in charge is all that’s needed.

This informal, light-touch approach seems to be backed by BUNGLE’s employers, Avonmouth Tory councillors WAYNE “DEE” HARVEY and MATTHEW “DUM” MELIAS who are happy to tell any complainants crap such as, “it’s none of your business you’ve only lived here four years” and our favourite response to this major public health threat – “you just have to put up with it”.

It’s enough to make you wonder what drives and influences Bungle’s regulatory decisions isn’t it? It’s not witnesses or evidence that’s for sure.
