Chris, let's make a few things clear.

 

Freedom of speech and expression is bi-directional so if you're unwilling to have other people respond to your posts then a blog might suit you better than an open forum.

 

The only person making any reference to social class thus far has been you. I have no interest in your or indeed anyone else's perceived position in society and as just another member here I'm sure that no one has enquired yet as to my own perception of status.

 

Although you might not find posts that do anything other than agree with your point of view of value, those other people finding themselves in a similar situation may, such is the purpose of an open forum.

 

CAB are but one option but if you're able to research the shortcomings of an organisation then doing your own research on matters that affect you personally might be the best option in future.

 

I'll not comment any further but to say good luck for the future.

sorry, i dont block peoples threads, that admin, i suggest you to speak to them. Please find something more constructive to do than continue this ridiculous debate. Maybe some of the other threads have members more congenial to your tastes

 

if i do not want to enter a discussion about who is paying taxes and who are the workers and who are the supposed scroungers in our society, then i have the right to say so. I can not force people to stop their bigotry behavior, but as long as I am still alive i will challenge it. you obviously have a problem with my stance

The problem with debate is that other people will have views that do not conform to what you want to hear.

If you wish to brush aside such views or tell them to go away then all you are doing is creating a thread with people who agree with you. Problem with a thread full of nodding dogs is that it does not improve your position unless you can argue constructivly against the points raised against you. Nor does it help any Poseter looking for advice if respondents blindly agree with no basis on which to do so, leading posters into worse situations.

 

You asked for opinions, you got them. Sorry if you do not like them. Clearly your attitude is not geared towards a public open forum.

 

I appreciate you have been through a hard time, matters made worse by your own inactions and that you feel you have a right to be angry. Maybe you should do a bit of soul searching and examine your own situation from an outside perspective.

 

As for you dismissing any idea of point raised against you telling them to get lost, that leads me to think that you are in fact trolling this forum. I suggest you tone down the attitude and enter constructive debate, or maybe find a different forum more suited to your needs.

Hi Christopher,

 

I am at a loss as to what it is your either saying here or what response your after.

 

As I've looked at your link & from what I've seen & read on there;

 

You made a complaint to the Council & they investigated it.

 

In their reply letter of which there's only 1 page showing, which to my mind, is clear, concise & fully explained in detail, with regards to the Door lock complaint.

 

I also fail to see how this relates to Council staff & indeed the Ombudsman doing there jobs unsatisfactory.

 

Could you enlighten us more?

 

I've a feeling after reading your previous thread (on which I replied) that you are upset &/or angry with regard to your local Council.

 

I do hope you are able to sort out the issues your having & are able to move on them.

 

Good luck!!


I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every single minute of it!!

I am merely trying to highlight a few things and add to the knowledge base of the services/ conditions/ treatment of individuals with in our country today. If I can learn from other bloggers then thats all the better. I am way past being angry. All of what I am adding to this discussion is from personal experience. Thanks for reinstating my thread, be nice to see a more bottoms up approach to the governance of the forum

Foolish to turn it down is all I can say. Highlight all you like but it's not going to help the situation when people are just glad of a roof and will put in the effort to make a home.

I think the main reason why your last thread was closed was because you were attacking people who provided their opinions which you did not agree with, the thread served its purpose, your question was answered and was just going round in circles.

 

I think a blog would be more suited for you rather than a forum.

 

As for other peoples opinions you have asked for? I see nothing wrong in your photo streams. I do not see what your complaint actually is about?

I can't see what the problem is if you turned down a home and then say you are homeless because of it.

 

From the video it's clear that the property wasn't ready to be lived in yet but with some TLC and elbow grease it's a roof. . I don't know about Scotland but council homes in England are being bought up to standard and you are given grants or the property renovated after the previous tenants have left. So what you see initially is not what you get.

 

My local council have spent weeks renovating a property just opposite me after the last family seemingly trashed it before they were evicted. It's the second family to have had that house and been evicted for anti-social behaviour and it's been refurbished completely previously after a fire gutted the roof.

 

Buy your own house and then see how easy it is to afford repairs! You think a chipped door is a problem or a lock? Repairs are handed out by councils for free for their subsidised tenants! IMHO you are lucky to be offered anything and if you're blogging about it then you have too much time on your hands. You have to help yourself and that means saving money to rent or buy. Quit complaining as I'm sure someone has snapped that up after you refused it.

 

It's always easier to move from a home or a job if you already have one.

For future and others reference I would like to point out a potential solution to the dilapidated home problem.

I have been given and then given back help, paint, material, carpet and all sorts of house accessories and furniture from kind people on freecycle - freegle.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how many people are ready to help when you post a "wanted" message on these local sites.

Just a few months ago a couple in their 60s and I fitted a kitchen, almost entirely donated by members for a 78 year old gentleman.

The council didn't want anything to do with it.

Next time ask the community, we're still available to help genuine people in need.

thanks king, good reply. atleast there are somer decent helpful bloggers out there.

 

Yes, and gumtree has a section for freebies to.

 

Im fine though, i just rented a house on private sector and billed the council.

 

Stung themselves in the bottom, landed up costing them more in the end.

 

Point being most unemployed cant get anything on the prtivate sector,

 

i am one of the lucky ones who knew a x-landlord who knew i was a good tenant

I suspect he meant he claimed HB - but if he thinks it cost the Council more - then he is sadly mistaken
