  1. Aye good job. Merge my threads, when in fact they are specifically about separate issues and move the main thread to a completely unrealted sub-forum. I started a thread highlighting a potential security risk on an official government website and you do this? Seriously. I'm done with this place. Maybe it's changed? I'll just go to CAB. Many thanks.
  2. Close thread please. This has all opened my eyes to just how corrupt the world is. I feel there is a deterioration in our rights going on . FYI the allegations I thought were coming from my neighbours were actually coming from the police . I'm expected to not know that until 10 minutes before I'm put on the spot and asked if I'd like to take a plea bargain on the 3rd hearing. Don't ever take one of those. Not if you feel that overall you are innocent and being treated with contempt by everyone involved. Solicitors walking off the case. Me complaining about that. Then no solicitor in country wanted to deal with me. I don't claim 100% innocence but the fact of the matter is all I was doing was trying to make things rights with everyone and got arrested where the police should have exercised a bit more discretion towards there duty. These idiots were calling the police round to my house for nothing, because they took offence at something I said when I didn't actually mean any offence. Snowflakes with chips on their shoulders. I don't need people negging and nagging me over this. I've had enough of being treated like a criminal and an idiot by the justice system, so while I appreciate the time people have taken over the years offering me advice to help me I think it's fair to maybe at least expect people to talk to me impartially. I know it's all a bit vague to you, but if you want to know more then please PM me and ask me. Don't be loading everything you say to me with baseless assumptions. I've got people on ignore now because I don't need to hear it.
  3. it's connected yes. I forgot I posted that . It's complicated. I'll look into that ignore function.The Hope I don't have to use it on anyone else.
  4. I've already told you. I skimmed through about half of this latest tirade. Last time I tell you to keep your sepculation/judgmental commentary to yourself! I AM NOT HERE TO DISCUSS THE CASE! So either give me the benefit of the doubt and just assume I'm in the right, which I am, or ZIP IT! I'm just offering a condensed version of what happened (obviously a mistake because some people here just love reading between the lines) I'm not offering a full breakdown of events! You know what mate, one day you might find yourself on the wrong side of the law through no fault of your own. Don't expect any sympathy from me if you do. Since there's no block button I'm just going to have to remember to ignore any further comments from you, so anything else you post from now will not be read. Go away you antagonistic person.
  5. Well it sounded like you were, inviting me to read between your lines. I guess I'll report it to whatever regulatory body oversees them because this is just not good enough. I'm now wondering about whether to change my bank details, which is a hassle. The IT department of the Scottish Justice System appear to be about as competent as the rest of them. There's normally a process of mediation before you get handcuffed and bundled in a van for nothing more than walking down the street in the town where you live, on the asumption I WAS in fact threatening or intending to harm my neighbours. All I was doing was trying to make the peace with them, they called the police for trying too hard to apologise. Oh yeah, and they run the only pub for miles around here and I'm not allowed to go there even though I have volunteered my time to help everyone here in an emergency situation. The SJS waded into a non-situation and took the word of two thug cops and two idiots over mine and inflamed the whole situation and more or less ruined my life. Again, not wishing to elaborate.
  6. Yeah there's something about having to try to settle the matter at home over 6 months or something. But I'm not sure how to do that. My solicitor doesn't seem to give a toss, I never once have had my side of the story put forward in court and any attempt by me to do so was somehow brushed aside. I feel as though I was coerced into a plea bargain because of a number of factors: extreme difficulty getting to the court and the police were (I suspect) deliberately procrastinating on presenting the witness statements forcing me to attend more hearings. They also committed perjury, as did the neighbours. But upon the advice of my solicitor I took a plea bargain as it was looking unlikely I would win my defence. The last time I attended court I had to walk 5 miles early in the morning during a storm and in the dark to catch the bus on time to get there on time. Can i speak to the ECHR directly before submitting the application? It's nice to know that AFTER I may or may not have just compromised my bank details and had money taken out that I did not agree to.
  7. I'm not here to be judged by you mate. I'm here for advice on the payment method so if you've got nothing to contribute there then please keep your negative remarks to yourself. You don't know anything about the situation, but feel free to "read between the lines" silently. I'm not getting in to it here because it's not the reason I'm asking for advice, and it's complicated I've already spent about a year and a half suffering anxiety and depression as a result of it! I'm tired of thinking about it which is part of the reason I've not yet filed a complaint to the EU!
  8. I'm not applying to the EU human rights court for that, it would be for all the other stuff. I guess I've got more or less zero chance of anyone there giving a stuff either though eh? I'm still doing it anyway as a protest. The human rights abuse extends a little further than the courts. The police and the justice system did everything in their power to turn a minor dispute between neighbours into a full blown storm. I could have resolved the matter between myself and these idiots who got it into their heads i was a threat and started wasting police time, but then they slapped bail conditions on my head. It's more complicated and I'm not getting in to that here.
  9. Not sure this is necessarily a consumer issue but it's certainly a data protection issue. I was fined by the (so called) Scottish Justice System last year and I'm paying it off in installments. (is there a minimum I have to pay, because they said 20) This month I couldn't make it to an office so I decided to pay online. Terrible, insecure online method of paying! The page I was directed to (can't remember the web address) was basic, and it didn't ask the name of account holder or what credit card I was using. I was then directed to a window which popped up that alerted me to the fact I was about to send my bank details across an insecure network and they could be intercepted by third parties; so at that point I declined and decided to pay by phone instead. When I then went through the automated voice steps the system then alerted me to the fact my balance was £20 less in arrears, which meant the payment had in fact gone through when I thought I had cancelled it! I emailed them and they verified the payment had in fact gone through, before I went ahead and paid twice. How unprofessional? And they are not only expecting me to pay this ridiculous fine but it appears also expecting me to compromise my bank details on some dodgy online payment mechanism. Not good enough. I have complained. Just wondered what anyone thought of this, and more importantly if there is any remote chance I can spin this in my favour and use it to get this fine dropped (wishful thinking) doesn't appear my solicitor cares much about defending me or appealing . I am going to write to the EU Court of Human Rights about the whole thing (big old long story there about nightmare new neighbours and bent coppers)
  10. Your attempts to troll me are nothing but a waste of your own time. I might not be able to block you, but I don't have to read anything you write. I don't think it presents a very good image of the site to new people who come here and find a long standing member attempting to wind someone up who is going through a rough time and comes here asking for advice. If noone has any information regarding the specific question about deadlines for submission of witness statements then can some from admin close this thread, or better still delete it.
  11. I'll think twice about asking for any more advice here. I'm just glad this isn't the court. Close the thread.
  12. BazzaS don't talk to me again. I will ignore all your future posts from now on. Don't waste your time, I don't want to read your inflamatory rubbish, and I wont from now on. I've already considered how I'm going to approach this. It's not how I want to approach this, but it will have to be. I'm well acqainted with the kind of people who are judges, and the lives they lead outside of work. My mouth will be saying "yes your honour" but my mind will be thinking "... I have more than just "I have gay friends" in my favour, trust me when I say they are not pinning homophobic abuse on me.
  13. Why is not being represented to my advantage? I have a soliticitor, I think he doesn't want to spend any more time on this than he has to until the witness statements come through. I'm not that worried about it, I am a bit though. Everyone tells me to go in all remorseful and take the hit, but I'm damned if I am going to be messed about by stupid people and the police and the legal process. I'll stand my ground to the end. I didn't create this situation. It was thrust upon me through a series of successively and increasingly stupid people over reacting to an incident that wasn't worth spending a nanosecond bothering about in the first instance. I just want this to be over with and out of my life and my head as quick as possible. I wouldn't say the circumstances which led to this eejit getting a fine are anything like mine, and I have plenty of solid evidence that proves I am the exact opposite of homophobic. The courts have to prove there was real bigotry and in the case of shouting abuse at gay people in the street that's not hard to do. I don't think anyone deserves a punishment for that though, however nasty it may be, unless it's a sustained verbal attack over several times. In my case I can prove beyond any doubt that I am not a homophobe. I'll win that charge hands down, and if I don't it will go to appeal. The only thing I have to worry about is resisting arrest. I did that. I also called the police a few things, but the flip side of that coin is police misconduct... etc. The truth will out and the courts will see how unneccesary getting the police involved was from the start and I was just a guy trying to make things right, but unreasonable people and straws and camels backs...
  14. Thanks. I did read some of that off a website before I came here though, and I couldn't find anything that said evidence must be produced prior to the intermediate diet. Diet as in hearing, whatever hearing means. Why do they have to make everything so difficult for the layperson to understand in law? Oh yeah, so they can confuse/frighten us into pleading guilty... They better not say the evidence is not ready and I have to appear for another intermediate diet! It's already a real hassle for me to get to the court, hence the offer from my gay friend to drive me there. It's either that or a round trip costing about £50 each time!
