It is all too possible to round a corner on horseback and come upon a group of cattle with no prior warning -this WILL result in a horse being badly spooked at best, bolting at worst -it is only a matter of time ........... read more
Justice for the ordinary man
Maureen Comber writes to Keith Vaz, MP for Leicester East
and Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee
Maureen Comber comments
- I feel moved to ask the question why this matter (The Plebgate Affair) is being so deeply scrutinized when at the same time, long standing abuse of office, false representation, failure to disclose, by local government and quangos
- "How can the ordinary man maintain his rights in law if he is not supported by it and it is not enforced?"
- A little bit of name calling pales into insignificance in the face of the fraud and theft of common land.
Says Maureen Comber
I hear and see you speaking on television with regard to the purported name calling at the gates of Downing Street a year ago.
I realise this is not acceptable even though any pretence at formality has been dropped in society as a whole, for instance the lack of formality in schools and the workplace.
I therefore feel moved to ask the question why this matter is being so deeply scrutinized when at the same time, long standing abuse of office, false representation, failure to disclose, by local government and quangos is being covered up and ignored?
I have written to my MP, the LGO, Parliamentary Ombudsman, Defra, National Audit Office, Audit Commission, CID, and am currently in correspondence with Natural England.
All the indications are that this particular problem (attached), needs to go to the High Court for a resolution but none of these government bodies offer to take it there.
"How can the ordinary man maintain his rights in law if he is not supported by it and it is not enforced?"
There is so much talk of undoing red tape, localism, transparency, openness and accountability, but unless the public have recourse to justice these are without foundation.
As you have said the public need to be able to have faith in those that govern, but how can they when they see crimes being committed, then covered up and not dealt with by the very people who should be independent and accountable?
A little bit of name calling pales into insignificance in the face of the fraud and theft of common land. This deprives the public of access and enjoyment of their open space at the same time as they are being told to live active healthy lifestyles. How hypocritical is that?

We moved to a Shropshire location a year ago having surveyed the local OS map and noted the significant number of bridleways around the property. Sadly the map appears a total fiction. Scarce any of the bridleways are usable ........... read more
