CORRUPT GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT-CONTINUED

Because the GLD, then the Parliamentary Ombudsman, fobbed me off with lies and refused my requests for answers and an investigation into Hobbs QC, I went back to my MP one Tobias Ellwood.
If you have followed this story of Government corruption you will know that in a previous post I told you that earlier on he promised to help me after I'd reminded him that his declaring that he specialised in helping veterans and as I was a veteran myself, he should help. I'd said that when my current efforts came to nothing as I believed they would, I would then contact him for help.

So when recently I'd reached that inevitable situation, I sent him a letter dated 30th July 2019 and I waited some weeks without getting a reply (which is normal and why these things drag on for years). Now I know that he has office staff dealing with letters and emails being sent him and so I sent in an email enquiring as to how things were going re a reply and that was on the the 19th August.  So predictably my email was replied to by one of his staff a Megan Dittoes, dated 21st August. You can see below copies of those letters and emails plus the continuation of our contacts from then on. The wording in them will show you what Ellwoods staff were saying and my replies and they should be self explanatory.

On the 19th August I'd got a letter from the Parliamentary Ombudsman telling me the inevitable, that they were  not going to do anything re the GLD despite all the evidence I'd given them re their refusing to answer a few simple questions re Appointed Persons.You can see the copy of that letter on the previous post.

You can see that Megan Gittoes on the 21st August email to me is saying I cannot have a face to face meeting with Tobias due to the ABUSE she thinks I indulged in when I, in an email on the 10th January 2017 (some two and three quarters of a year ago) had told him off, for failing to help me over a completely different case where a Dorset Police Officer perverted the course of justice by ALTERING A WITNESS STATEMENT TO READ THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT THAT WITNESS SAID.  Copy is shown so you can see exactly what I said and decide yourself if what I said was indeed abuse or merely exercising my rights to complain he wasn't helping me as an MP should. But as is now usual in this crazy world we now live in, IF YOU TELL ANYONE OFF AND LEGITIMATELY SO, you get accused of ABUSE.
They don't even know the definition of that word, but blatantly use it to attack you and stop you from being able to meet with the MP, who is supposed to represent you and help you in cases like this. You will see exactly what I said to him in the copy posted below.

So now I have to only, get my case and evidence over to Tobias by emails, rather than doing it all at a meeting. That makes my efforts to get across to him all the evidence and him being able to cross exam me and in a meeting that could all be done very quickly, as opposed to snails pace emails when his staff will take ages to deal with everything.

Then I get an email on the 20th Sept, from a Lizzy Mahon and it is straight away apparent that she
and no doubt Megan Gittoes have misinterpreted some of the evidence I have given them. You will see in the email reply, what I have had to say on that. But it shows you that civil servants do this all the time, and sometimes its deliberate because they want to twist the facts, so they then make your case appear differently and then they can say there is no case and Bye Bye.

I am now waiting to see what eventuates here. But I am not confident because I cannot see Tobias willing to take on the UK Justice Establishment as he will have to in this case. I will post all the goings on as they happen.

Here are the emails that have gone to and from Tobias's office.

Mr Tobias EIlwood.MP, House of Cormous, London. SWIA IAA.

30/7/19.

Dear Mr Ellwood,

A TOP I/P BARRISTER ONE HOBBS QC AND A TOP LAW OFFICER-MR JAMES OF THE IPO. CONSPIRED TOGEIHER TO TAKE AWAY FROM ME, MY LEGALLY AND MINE. ALL MY EFFORTS SINCE 2008 TO NOW HAVE ALL UNLAWFULLY REFUSED TO HAVE THIS INVESTIGATED SO I CAN AT LAST OBTAIN THE JUSTICE I AM ENTITLED TO.

In actual fact, in 2006 I came to you over the beginnings of this sordid history, when I was being lied to by the IPO over the bogus Appeal Hearing they had set up, which set in motion all the comipt actions they went on to carry out and thus started all my problelns.  I had complained to the CEO of the IPO at that time and as he was not coming up with answers, I contacted you. You wrote to him but got nowhere and that was a portent of what would happen every time I tried to get this investigated.

However, since then the IPO continued with their corrupt actions, helping my adversary Mr.R. Busbridge who had been my London agent until he conspired to copy my car designs and use my Trade Mark as well. He wished to steal my Trade Mark `VIPER' in order to trade on my goodwill I had built up in that Mark and which would be attached to his copy of my car. Thus fooling the public into thinking they were buying a car they had read of and from my company. But all the actions that were enacted at the 2006 alleged Appeal Hearing were deliberately set up to make it appear he was getting a bona-fide appeal hearing. But in actual fact he was getting legal advice how to get around the hearing he had lust to me and was also promised help from the IPO to do this. In 2010 at the last of five Tribunal Hearings, the IP0 made sure they trashed my evidenee. (put forward by my I/P lawyer- he said he could not believe how the IP0 had treated me and how they had manipulated that hearing and ignored all the evidence we put before them) At that hearing they took away my legally obtained and registered Trade Mark and gave no legal reasons for doing so. I had no money to appeal to the High Court which is what my lawyer wanted me to do.

The stress of dealing with the IPO which started in 1992 and as I say went to 2010, gave me a massive heart attack in 2002 that I was lucky to survive. From then on and to 2010 I was under more stress over their actions, which by then I had no money which I could use to fight them in the High Court, over the corrupt way they were acting.

The turning and pivotal point actually started at that bogus alleged appeal hearing, held in March 2006. I had just won the previous hearing which my adversary Busbridge was trying to appeal. You will see in my notes and the list of government justice deparments I have been forced to go to to try to get Justice and how I have been treated and denied justice. Again, had I been able to afford legal representation, non of this would have happened. You I am sure, will know that British people like me can no longer get legal aid for almost everything.

You will see that just lately I have been trying to get, firstly the Ministry of Justice and then the Government Legal Department to investigate the Barrister and his unlawful and even criminal actions. When they just treated me as if I were an oaf they could mess around with lies and passing the buck etc. That forced me to go to the Parliamentary Ombudsman. But they, as it is well known,
are not really there to help and protect members of the Public who are being walked all over by a government body, but are there to PROTECT the very people you are complaining about.
I can show you that I aln not making this up, as it is ALL DOCUMENTED. Starting with that bogus hearing and through every stage to just recently. For despite my giving the Ombudsman documen(any evidence that the MOJ were failing to deal with my complaint and to answer my legit questions, they refused to censure them in any way.

If that were not bad enough, this despicable exercise by them, was REPEATED when I took my complaints to the GLD who also refusing to answer questions. The Ombudsman just played me about and then cynically told me it would also not deal with my complaint re the GLD. No explanations as to why either, and they are duty bound to give you an explanation.

As there is quite a lot of documentary evidence, even just about events at the bogus hearing and then all my efforts to obtain justice after that, I am only telling you the skeleton facts along with a shortened list of each approach to each judicial body that I have made since 2008. For I need to know if you will do the right thing and help me to get justice. If you are, then I can show you a document which gives a bigger picture of what has gone on at each stage. Once that is read and you still think you could help (and I see no reason why you could not) then I could show you the full documentary evidence, in order to put you fully in the picture of what all these terrible civil servants have done, most of it unlawful too.

The fact that your wife is a lawyer would mean you would have an independent person who could give their verdict on all. For let's not beat about the bush here. What I am alleging is that the highest IP Barrister in the land (Hobbs QC-Google him) committed not only unlawful acts at that bogus appeal hearing/meeting, but he Perverted the Course of Justice. AND I CAN EASILY PROVE THAT !

Let me make it plain, I am no fool who knows nothing about anything and I know who the Establishment works for in this country and it is THEY who I am fighting. FOR I AM ALLEGING THAT A HIGH UP BARRISTER DELIBERAIEIY AND CYNICALLY COMMITTED CRIMINAL ACTS, AIDED AND ABETTED BY A HIGH UP LEGAL OFFICER IN THE IPO! ! ! !  I know and its been proved to me over and over since 2008, that no one in the legal profession and in the Justice Establishment want to touch this ...... "Ooh we don't want to rock the boat here or put ourselves at risk by taking this on, so we must do the right thing by our fellow Establishment members and protect them " So because I have no money to take it out of their hands and get it into the High Court and hopefully have it dealt with by an HONEST AND STRAIGHT JUDGE???? and away from the rats I've been forced to deal with up to now, they have been able to just walk all Over me.

SO NOW THE QUESTION IS; HAVE YOU THE DECENCY AND THE GUTS TO TAKE THIS ON AND DEAL WITH IT??? If you have, firstly I would send you the more full story, then at some stage we would have to meet so I can go over the full story verbally and show the documentary evidence that is there in bundles. So I hope to hear from you in the near future ..... NOW YOU ARE BACK TO BEING A BACK BENCHER and so now unable to claim you have too much work ! ! Don't forget what you told me in your email of the 3rd May. As an MP you are able to approach the Ombudsman and ask why they have behaved the way they have. Similarly with the MOJ and the GLD and of course that's what I wish you to do. But you will need the FULL info on all this, to do that. Plus don't forget I am an ex Vet who gave the best years of my life to the country-this is my reward!

For attention of MEGAN.

Hi,

I find it very odd that a constituent sends you an important letter and you say you have'nt received it. Something very wrong there.

So I am attaching that very letter and I want to stress that I know MP's cannot actually do investigations but they do have the powers to ask government departments why they are doing whatever, which their constituents are complaining about. After all, all government departments have a Minister who is supposed to make sure they run properly and ANY MP can approach them and ask for answers.

I wish now to actually meet with Tobias to go over this whole case and explain the non actions of three departments who are refusing to act and are lying all the time through their back teeth in their efforts to hide the facts of my case because they know if my case gets out it will cause no end of trouble for them.

I hope to be contacted by whoever in order to set up a meeting in Bournemouth, sooner rather than later.

Regards,
Ken Cook.

ln December I asked you to supply me with the answer to a simple question. You couldn't even do that and spun me a load of nonsense in your reply.

Ever since you became an MP and I was forced to come to you several times trying to get you to do your MP's job and help a constituent, but you have each time that you are nasty, incompetent, only interested in bettering yourself whilst you shamelessly climb the greasy pole in politics. Reading your CV plainly Shows what you are all about.

Thanks to you I never got the help I could have, had I had a good MP who was genuinely interested in doing their job for the people that voted them into their cushy jobs. As a result I suffered from a massive injustice heaped upon me by a government department and the Dorset Police. And you did NOTHING.

Now I asked you a simple question as to who (Minister) was responsible for the Housing Ombudsman and you lied to me in your answer, which I KNEW was wrong. So I rang the HO myself and eventually got them to admit who the Minister who was responsible for them, was. Either you are bone idle or you are stupid .... take your pick.

YOU ARE EASILY THE WORST MP I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS AND I'VE MET A FEW IN MY TIME. YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A FRAUD AND I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU GET YOUR COMEUPPANCE.

I am shocked to the core to receive this email and what you have said. Your accusation that I have ABUSED him, simply is not true. For a start it is ages since I asked him to deal with anything.  I do remember complaining that he didn't help me ages ago and complaining is quite different to abusing someone. Maybe you will send me copies via email of the occasions you think I have abused him.  I find it astonishing that you trawl through years of previous contacts a person has had with Mr Ellwood as it's almost like you are trying to find some excuse in order to have him get out of seeing me. That would be outrageous, so what is it? That's if you will tell me,  I'm thinking.

Isn't it up to Mr Ellwood to decide this and not someone he employs who was not part of any long gone contacts I had with him.  My recent contacts did not end in such accusations AND HE PROMISED that when I had got to the point I needed his help, he would help. So am I to take it that he was lying to me?? Now that I have reached that point. Or is it that he now thinks that the subject matter is such that he wants to not get involved.??
Regards
K.Cook

Dear Mr Cook,

Further to our recent telephone conversation I have since reviewed your cases that you have had with Tobias.  Unfortunately, after reviewing your correspondence to our office mainly Tobias over the past couple of years I will not be able to offer your a surgery appointment.

This is due to the abuse aimed towards Tobias in a number of your emails.  Our office operates on a zero tolerance basis for any kind of abuse and while we are happy to continue to assist you on your case, as advised by our security services, we will not be able to facilitate a surgery.
If you wish for me to resend you the correspondence to which I am referring I would be more than happy to do so.

You are of course welcome to call or email should you have questions.

Kind regards,

Megan

From: ken cook Sent: 21 August 201919:22 To: Ellwood Tobias, Subject: Re:

Hi,

On rereading your email I have several questions for you.

1. Can you tell me why it was necessary for you to review all my contacts via mostly emails, to Mr Ellwood especially going back several years. For this sounds to me that you are conducting a witch hunt in order to find anything you can use against me and stop me from actually explaining my case face to face and why I wish him to become involved in order to help me.
2. Can you explain to me why it was necessary for you to get advice from some 'SECURITY SERVICE. Am I viewed as some sort of terrorist who may harm Mr Ellwood?? Someone who may stab him or assault him?? I am a squeaky clean 78 year old ex marine and auto engineer businessman and EX FORCES POLICEMAN and from a police family. Yet it seems I am some sort of threat. I find this astounding and absolutely out of order - Am I living in a country like Russia where when you are trying to get JUSTICE against how the AUTHORITIES have treated you, you're viewed as a threat to the system and denied even seeing the person who is supposed to help you when the State is trying to shut you up because you are complaining about how a State entity has committed unlawful acts, which has ruined your life and business.
3. Can you explain that despite saying what you have said and intimated about me seeing Mr Ellwood face to face, you are happy to assist me on my case. I cannot see how those who work in an office can help as only Mr Ellwood can help as it is he that has the power to help.

Finally please get to me sooner rather than later, those massively offending emails of years ago as l am not getting younger and wish to get on with this case before I die.

Regards,
Ken Cook

Dear Mr Cook,

Thank you for coming back to me so quickly.
I would be more than happy to answer your questions and like my previous email I have copied in Tobias for transparency.   I would like to make clear that this was in no means a witch hunt and I have at no point accused you of the things you claim.  As explained we have a zero tolerance policy of any kind of abuse. That includes verbal`  As requested I will of course forward these referenced emails.
To answer your first question, I did not review your cases to find a reason for Tobias to not be involved.  As previously explained he can be involved.   I reviewed them for further understanding.  As I work for Tobias I have always monitored and followed any cases that come in therefore I already had a brief understanding.   I reviewed your case so I was able to properly advise Tobias on how we can best offer his assistance, which we will still do.
Secondly, I did not get advice from our security services specifically regarding your case or your correspondence. I am sincerely apologise for the misunderstanding.  As I work for an MP, Parliament requires I undertake certain levels of training from our provided security service and operate under their policies. For clarification, these are policies Parliament have in place due to the amount Of threats and abuse Members and their staff receive.  We cannot under any circumstances provide a surgery if their have been any instances of any kind of verbal abuse.  This is not an attack on you personally however, it is non negotiable.
Thirdly, we are able to assist with your case without undertaking a surgery.  So you are aware, our team assist Tobias on all casework and are able to undertake any and all cases on behalf of Tobias. Any work our team undertakes is on behalf of Tobias.  Any letters written would be from the member and Tobias would be present at any meetings.  His team are hired and trained to assist on all cases.
In order to move forward quickly and effectively, we will undertake all requests in the attached letter.  I can only apologise that we did not receive that but I thank you for having sent that now.  The requests include taking your case to the Ministry Of Justice.  As well as this I would like to contact the Ombudsman and enquire of when you should expect to receive a response and why there has been such a delay.
As you are aware, I have all the previous information that Tobias has seen however I would be happy to review any further information you have that you wish for Tobias to consider when writing.   Similarly if their is a specific instruction you wish for Tobias to undertake please of course outline this.
Once again I apologise for any offence caused or that you feel you have not been sufficiently assisted by Tobias in the past but I look forward to rectifying this.  You may not feel the attached correspondence is reason enough to refuse a surgery, but I must advise our position will remain the same.

As ever you are welcome to call me, if you wish to discuss this over the phone and please do not hesitate to ask should you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
Megan

Re your last email. Attached is a letter to Mr Ellwood with supporting evidence documents.
Re your own remarks in your reply,  I am compelled to remark on them:
Whilst you claim you are not conducting a witch hunt against me, the fact you have trawled through and researched the previous contacts I've had with Tobias, even going back to early 2017 (over two and a half years ago) and re a completely different subject matter to my current requests ...... so why was that. lt definitely looks like a witch hunt to me in order to stop me having what any constituent has the right to do.  Is Tobias the 'Hero` so thin skinned he cannot face being face to face with a 78 year old constituent?? Where you even employed by Tobias then?? But in any case you are not aware of the facts of why I was so annoyed and upset with him on only one email and quite rightly so.  I had come within an inch of being killed when on my motorbike and was injured and by a horrendous cynical act by a motorist when I was on a mini roundabout and turning with right of way. The PC who attended took witness statements, perverted the course of justice by altering a woman's statement who said I was not at fault and the car driver was, to then read, I was at fault. You cannot get worse than that and as is usual with our police today, they were giving me the run around and protecting their policeman when I complained  re this. All Tobias could say was I should go to the IPPC, who were and still are a complete waste of space and he should have known that, as they were constantly in the papers back then and being slated for not being INDEPENDENT AND FULL OF EX COPS ON THEIR STAFF!!
So I was well within my rights to complain about him to his face and use the words I did.  I AM AFRAID YOU OBVIOUSLY DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THE WORD 'ABUSE' REALLY MEANS,  (Look it up in a dictionary) for I was passing judgement on his unwillingness to act against the Police and on behalf of his constituent. I am a straight talking Northerner and what I said was 100% the truth and any constituent has the right to pass judgement on his MP when they are being let down .... THAT IS OUR RIGHT ! and the `words I used were not swear words but rightly very strong and truthful words. You are just using them to stop me being able to conduct a meeting with Mr Ellwood which because of what this case entails, there is quite an amount of evidence and it's complex AND he may have questions?? Plus I want to make sure he UNDERSTANDS THEM ALL. The case would get done much more quickly this way. What you and Tobias should understand is that what went on absolutely needs to be exposed and it is in the National Interest to do so, for it undermines the whole of our justice system and shows it up for what it really is these days. For if a Judge QC can break the law with impunity...WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT OUR RULE OF LAW?? If he refuses to do it, I am determined I will do it and there are some avenues I could use, which the Establishment will hate.  WHICH  IS  IT TO BE??
Anyway I am starting by sending him a letter very briefly outlining the case, together with the transcript of what went on and the opinion of a barrister re that bogus hearing that was dressed up as a bona-fide appeal hearing. All the other evidence I am holding back and will only divulge it depending on what Tobias does, if anything.  Plus will he still be around and still be an MP, judging by what shenanigans are happening right now in our wonderful political system re the Brexit nonsense?
Best regards,
Ken Cook.

VIDEO EVIDENCE  FOR TOBIAS
From:   ken cook (sailerboy63@yahoo.co.uk)
To:        megan.gittoes@parliament.uk
Date:    Friday,13 September 2019,16:48 BST

If Tobias found the time from all the TV news programmes he is on these days,  I would hope that he's read my email and evidence documents??
lf he can bring himself to do this, I would suggest he also looks at my YouTube videos, found by searching under my name (Ken Cook)(also Ken Cook Cobras) which will show him how the UK Justice system/IPO has ruined my business and life and how the worst and pivotal part of their campaign was the bogus set up appeal hearing, which you already have the transcript of and the Barristers opinion of that.
He will also see on my YouTube website, what I designed, manufactured and sold until all this happened. Proving that I once had a successful and expanding business, and contributing to export figures, not to mention employing up to 25 people.
But then he has to have the will to give his time and attention to doing this, unlike his previous history.  I look forward to hearing from him in the near future, now he's not on Parliamentary/government cabinet duties.

Kind Regards,

Ken Cook.

Dear Mr Cook,

I understand you have previously been in contact with my colleague Megan regarding your case. Whilst she will continue to lock over this, she has asked me to liaise with you for the time being.
I would like to inform you that Tobias has contacted the Parliamentary Ombudsman to ask for an update on your complaint and to find out when you can expect to receive a response, as we appreciate it has now been over four months since Tobias sent off your submission.
Furthermore, upon your request Tobias has also written to the Lord Chancellor and Secretary Of State for Justice, the Rt Hon Robert Buckland QC MP, at the Ministry of Justice to seek the reasoning behind the decision that your case was not within their jurisdiction.
I will of course let you know once Tobias has received a response from them. Please be aware that we allow 20 working days before chasing them for a response due to the amount of correspondence they receive.
Kind regards,

Hi, Thank you for your update email.  I have to set you right on what has gone on between me and the P.Oms. Why I have contacted Tobias is because they have knocked back my request for them to sanction or whatever, the Government Legal Department for their refusal to answer three simple questions I asked them, and give me the answers. This fact is within the facts I gave Tobias. So he should be asking the Ombudsman:-  WHY HAVE THEY REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING,  RE THAT THE GLD LIED TO ME ABOUT THE FACT THEY SUPPLY APPOINTED PERSONS (A/P's) TO THE IPO.  I GAVE THEM AN EMAIL THE IPO SENT ME, WHERE THEY CATEGORICALLY SAID THE GLD DO SUPPLY THEM WITH A/P'S. YET EVEN THO' I SHOWED THAT TO THE GLD, THEY CONTINUED TO SAY THEY DID NOT. THEN THEY REFUSED TO ANSWER MY LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS ABOUT A/P's, like who employs them, who is their boss and who pays them for their services. (I WANT TO KNOW THIS SO I CAN APPROACH THEM AND ASK THEM TO INVESTIGATE THE UNLAWFUL ACTIONS OF THAT BARRISTER) What either the MOJ or the GLD should be doing, is investigating the fact that a prominent QC broke the law several times including 'perverting the course of justice' !! And on that fact, there is the absolute evidence he did that, which can be seen in the evidence l've just sent Tobias. He needs to read all that so as to see what I am saying ..... is absolutely 100% true and not made up nonsense by me!! The barristers opinion document I sent Tobias showed law breaking. Tobias if he reads what I have said and sent him surely he can see that for some years now all my efforts to get this barrister QC investigated have been systematically rebuffed with lies and denials etc, etc. by the whole of the justice system...THUS DENYING ME JUSTICE. No use telling me to report this to the Police for the reasons I have already given Tobias. They don't do justice these days and constantly refuse to investigate so much. As you should well know.
So what you have said below about Tobias and what he's said to the Ombudsman is on the wrong tack as they have concluded nothing more than excuses to do nothing. Hence my writing to Tobias as l've said.
What you have told me re him contacting the MOJ is right, but he should also have asked why they will not investigate the acts by a Barrister that works for an arm of the MOJ? (The Treasury solicitors/GLD are an arm Of the MOJ and that is quite clear they are, even tho they, the MOJ will have it otherwise) I have already provided proof of that and can do so again if necessary. So now hope you get the right picture on all this and you can ring me ANYTIME if you are not absolutely clear what this is all about. ` .... 07494785828

What all this boils down to is the whole of the British Justice Establishment simply want to bury, wrong doing by one of their own!I!! !!!

Thank you,

Ken Cook

CORRUPT PARLIAMENTARY OMBUDSMAN & GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT

The last post dealt with my efforts with the Ombudsman to get them to censure the GLD over their refusal to answer some simple questions about who employs Appointed Persons and who is responsible for their actions when they commit crimes.

On the 2nd July they knocked back my complaint about the GLD. Then, as I am allowed, I asked them to review it and gave a wealth of reasons why their original decision was entirely wrong. I included on the last post, a copy of the letter I sent them. After waiting a month and a half I got their inevitable knockback reply dated 19th August 2019. See copy below. Once again it's just more civil service lying, twisting the facts, ignoring other facts and so on. What they have said on their page 1, is all pure civil service waffle and having it that their original decision was pure gold standard and correct and they simply will not listen to any facts as to why large parts of it were wrong and that is even shown in further documentary evidence I sent them.

Astonishingly they even tell me that in their review, they will not budge from their original decision as it is FINAL. How arrogant can you get? They may as well say every comment we make
is 100% correct and true and even if you send us evidence that it is not correct and true, we still will not budge.

On their second page they start off by saying "In your review request you say the complaint is about the conduct of a barrister during the legal process". This is absolutely typical of how civil servants twist things and LIE. For in my email letter of the 4th July headed "APPEAL AGAINST YOUR DECISION OF THE 2ND JULY" - look at what I said in my last paragraph:-
"IT IS CLEAR THAT MY COMPLAINT ABOUT THE GLD, IS THE REFUSAL TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS AND LYING TO ME"
Yet they ignored that and the fact that the questions I asked the GLD are:- Who employs Appointed Persons and who pays them and who is responsible for their performance and ACTIONS at hearings?
I was forced to ask them (the GLD) these three questions as they would not answer them and kept giving me statements that were at odds with the FACTS, that the GLD are heavily involved with A/P's. I supplied them with copies of emails which showed they were heavily involved in supplying A/P's and how Appeals went. They choose to ignore this and side with the GLD this is seen by their comments in paragraph 3 on Page 2. For they said "Therefore the GLD should not respond to complaints about conduct" This when again, I had said in heavy printed capitals exactly what I was complaining about re the GLD. Of course I had explained to the GLD the BACKGROUND of why I was asking these three questions.
They also stated that an A/P is appointed by the Judicial Appointments Commission, which is a lie as they do not and I explained what the JAC had told me as to what role they played in the murky world of who appoints and who employs A/P's and so on. It is all deliberately made obscure so one can not get to who actually is responsible for the sods, when they break the law. IT IS TYPICAL of the Establishment and all those in the judicial world.....IT IS ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS TO STOP YOU EVER FINDING OUT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR A/P'S

They tell me that the JCIO are the people who I should go to re the actions of a Barrister A/P and this despite me telling them that I had already done this years ago and got nowhere.

Dear Mr Cook

Your request for a review of our decision.

You recently requested a review of the decisi.on we reached on your complaint about Government Legal Department  (GLD).
I am writing to you as an Operations Manager to give you our decision on that request and explain the reasons for this. I fully apprec.ate how strong you feel about this matter.
However,  having reviewed your request,  I  have decided our original decision on your complaint was correct.  Please note that my decision has been checked and approved by another Operations Manager as part of our quality assurance process.
We are the last stage of the complaints process, which  means we make the final decisions on unresolved complaints. We do this independently and impartially and often that requires us to make difficult decisions that not everybody will agree with.
Once we have given our decision on a complaint,  this is final unless we see evidence that suggests we got something wrong. We understand that people may not always agree with our decisions and  I  recognise you think our decision was wrong.  However, we will not review our decision just for that reason.
When someone asks us for a review, we do not automatically look at the whole of the original complaint again.  Instead, we look to see if we took account of all the relevant evidence and made a fair and robust decision  based on this.  We will usually only consider if we should review a decision once.
In your review request you say the complaint is about the conduct of a barrister during the legal process.
You believe that the GLD should be responding to questions about the Barristers conduct.  You dispute that the barrister is independent of GLD and as they have provided details of barristers they should be responsible for conduct. You have provided letters from the Treasury Solicitors Office which you say show that GLD are heavily involved,  and emails from the head of law which says the Treasury Solicitors will allocate the case to an Appointed Person.
An Appointed  Person is appointed to the role by the Judicial Appointments Commission. A barrister is independent of GLD. Allocating a case to an Appointed Person does not mean they are responsible for the actions of that person. Therefore the GLD should not respond to complaints about conduct. A complaint about conduct of a barrister would need to be raised with Judici.al Conduct Investigations Office  (JCIO).  We have seen GLD have responded to your concerns explaining this.
While we acknowledge you do not agree with our decision, as you have not provided any new evidence or shown our decision is wrong, we will not be taking any further action.

Summary

We have taken into consideration the explanations you have provided for why you think we got our decision wrong.  We appreciate how important this matter is to you;  however,  after carefully considering all of the circumstances of your complaint we have decided that a review is not warranted.
Please note that a consideration of a review request marks the end of our complaints process.

Yours sincerely

Vivien Johnson
Operations Manager

I hope you can see from reading what exactly I was asking the Ombudsman to look into re the GLD, and then looking at what they have said in reply, you will pick up their lies and obfuscations. The twisting of the facts in order to confuse and ignoring facts. One example of the latter is where I gave them a copy of the email I got from the IPO which categorically stated they got A/P's from the GLD
yet the GLD denied this. How I reiterated in CAPITALS the three questions I asked the GLD to answer and which they ignored/refused to answer.
********************************************************************************

Saying that the JAC appoint Appointed Persons is AN OUTRIGHT LIE, and they say this even tho' I had contacted the JAC who confirmed they had no role in appointing Appointed Persons and I told the GLD this.....they ignore this as it does'nt fit in with all their lying statements they have made to get out of making any rulings against the GLD.

Even at this stage I STILL DO NOT KNOW WHO IN FACT APPOINTS APPOINTED PERSONS, WHO PAYS THEM AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM-ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY FALL DOWN ON THEIR JOB AND PEOPLE WISH TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THEM. ALL THE STATEMENTS YOU END UP GETTING FROM A PLETHORA OF DEPARTMENTS ARE ALL DESIGNED TO KEEP THE TRUE FACTS FROM YOU, SO YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO TO DIRECT YOUR COMPLAINT TO, THAT THE LAW HAS BEEN BROKEN AND THE A/P NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED AND CHARGED WITH BREAKING THE LAW.

OF COURSE IF YOU HAVE MONEY YOU HOPEFULLY CAN TAKE ON A QC AND GET IT INTO COURT FOR AN ALLEGED INDEPENDENT JUDGE WHO CAN DEAL WITH ALL THE FACTS. HOWEVER CAN ONE ABSOLUTELY BE SURE THAT EVERY JUDGE WILL BE INDEPENDENT AND GIVE YOU A FAIR HEARING AND DECISION??????.....THAT IS THE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION. I WONDER.

I SUGGEST YOU READ THE EMAILS I HAVE POSTED ON THE RECENT POSTS WHICH I GOT FROM ALL THE VARIOUS JUSTICE DEPARTMENTS WHO INDULGED IN A MERRY-GO-ROUND OF PISSING ME ABOUT AND NOT ANSWERING MY QUESTIONS AS TO WHO EMPLOYS AND PAYS AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR APPOINTED PERSONS.

CORRUPT GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT Pt 6

With all my documents re my complaint about the GLD refusing to answer simple questions about Appointed Persons are with the Ombudsman around the middle of May, but by the end of June I'd received no answer. Typical, so I send in an email reminding them that they'd said they would be replying 'shortly', so I would now a month later like to have that reply.

A Kevin Weager sent me a reply on the 1st July telling me he was dealing with it and he asked me to answer some questions, like how was I affected by the non action reply by the GLD. Typical of our obsessed box ticking civil servants of today. I replied and asked him how would he feel if his life had been trashed by actions of a government department.

Amazingly the next day he sent me another email telling he wasn't going to take this matter further....
His list of reasons were a travesty as all that I had put in my complaint letter re the GLD had been twisted out of context and misread.....ALL DELIBERATE-AS THIS IS WHAT THEY ALWAYS DO.
So I quickly reply outlining every lie and mistake re the 'FACTS'? he'd made, that was never replied to. In his letter knocking back my complaint, he included a form to fill in if I disagreed to his reasons. TOO DAMN RIGHT I DISAGREED. So that got filled in and I listed all the reasons and asked him to read those along with my last email he'd ignored and it all went in on the 20th July 2019.

One of the excuses the GLD gave for not investigating Hobbs QC was that they had nothing to do with Appointed Persons like Hobbs who was at that bogus meeting. This is an outright lie as they supply them to the IPO in order that hearings can allegedly be heard by AN INDEPENDENT PERSON. All bullshit of course because most if not all the work Hobbs gets is from the IPO-meaning in real life he'd be on first name terms with everyone in the law section of the IPO. So I went into research as to exactly who employs A/P's and therefore must be responsible for them and their actions and behaviour.

The GLD had told me in answer to questions I'd asked them, that A/P's are the Judicial Appointments Commission responsibility. So I contacted them but found that all they do is run a selection course to find those good enough to become A/P's. They told me I should ask the Judicial Office who are an arm of the Her Majesty's Tribunal and Courts Service. They also tell me that and A/P's are employees of them + the MoJ. NOW HERE STRAIGHT AWAY REMEMBER THE MOJ DENIED ANYTHING TO DO WITH A/P's.

I now ask the HMCTS in a letter of the 6th July a few more questions (see copy below) They said CONTRARY to what the JAC had said re A/P's-that they ARE NOT EMPLOYEES OF THE HMTCS. This is what you get with these thoroughly corrupt, devious and  incompetent government departments. They are buck passing and pissing you about and this is DELIBERATE, in order to muddy the waters and then you never get to know who is responsible for anything let alone who is responsible for Hobbs. They tell me that A/P's are under the remit of the IPO. Now if that is meant to say they are employed AND paid by the IPO, then they are responsible for what went on at that bogus hearing....which of course they denied way back in 2007/8. You see what lies I've been fed by all these civil service liars and assholes.

So I ask the IPO 'who is responsible for the employment of A/P's'? and that arch lair, one Raoul Colombo in the Law Office of the IPO replied. He tells me that they are appointed by and are responsible to the Lord Chancellor which is at odds with what others have told me. IS IT EVER POSSIBLE TO GET FROM ANYONE OF THESE DEPARTMENTS IN THE UK JUDICIAL
SYSTEM A STRAIGHT AND HONEST ANSWER??????? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

So I still don't know who is responsible for employing Hobbs let alone who bears any responsibility for his criminal actions.......SO NOW IT IS GOING TO MY MP in an effort to see what he will be able to do re getting honest answers and how I can get HOBBs investigated.

RELEVANT LETTERS WILL APPEAR BELOW:-

1st July 2019

Dear Mr Cook,
I am the caseworker who will be considering your complaint about the Government Legal Department (the GLD). I have looked at all the papers you sent us including your complaint letters and email to the GLD, its responses to you, and I have read about the background to your complaint.
It appears that you complain to us about the GLD’s handling of your complaint. You complain it has lied to you about its remit and that it did not appoint Mr Hobbs QC to a case involving the Intellectual Property Office (the IPO) in 2008, it has not answered your questions in your complaint letters, and it has not addressed the poor conduct of its employees in answering your complaint. As an outcome you want the GLD to acknowledge failings.
On your complaint form you say that your intellectual property rights were taken from you which also ruined your business. Can you please tell me specifically how the GLD’s complaint handling has affected you?
Please let me know if my understanding of your complaint is correct, and if you have any questions.

Kind regards,

Kevin Weager

Your email today re my complaint.
From:   ken cook
To:        kevin.weager@ombudsman.org.uk
Date:    Monday,1  July 2019, 23:00 BST

H i,

Thank you for the overdue confirmation.

My first observation re your email is that either you don't fully understand what I am wanting done and are trying to go into areas that do not need to be gone into. In other words please keep this simple and keep to the point.

I will repeat simply, what needs to be done by you. As you can readily see because as you have said, you can easily see what I asked the GLD to confirm, in the questions I asked them which they refused to reply to. The history of my problems with the IPO and what they did does not come into what you should do re the GLD.

Put simply, this Hobbs QC bloke connived with a law officer of the IPO at an alleged appeal hearing which I was not allowed to attend, broke several rules/laws and that had the effect of going onto perverting the course of justice. (a criminal offence). Hobbs was, as are all 'Appointed Persons' are, provided by the GLD (then called the 'Treasury Solicitors). Since I found out when I got
the transcript of that hearing, what unlawful actions had taken place, I have been trying to get - JUSTICE ....WHICH I AM ENTITLED TO !!

I, over the timescale since then, have gone to EVERY avenue open to me to make complaints and AT EVERY ONE OF THEM,  all I have got is lies, obfuscations, buck passing and so on and all this in order to brush it under the carpet. I am well read on what all you people in the civil service get up to, including our corrupt Justice System. But I am not an idiot and I know what everyone has been up to, in trying to deny me my rights.

As I had tried all the many paths in the past, I reached the point where as far as I was concerned, the Ministry of Justice, one would have thought, would be the place to go to to get what happened ...INVESTIGATED. You will know EXACTLY where I got with that rabble, as I complained to
yourselves about their refusal to accept responsibility and with their lies. So I determined to now go back to the very department who dish out  these Appointed Persons, namely the GLD, and demand they investigate Hobbs actions. You can see how they are upto the usual jiggery-pokery in trying to
deny they have any responsability. YOU CAN SEE HOW THEY HAVE REFUSED TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS OR EVEN TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEY SUPPLY 'A/P's to the IPO.

Any member of the Public is entitled to not be lied to and to have their questions ANSWERED, by ANY government department. You seem to fail to see why I have brought my complaint over their non actions and lies to you. This even though you have all the documents that show you what my complaint is about and HOW THEY HAVE BEHAVED!!  More like it, is that you are now engaging in typical civil service, playing 'silly buggers'  with me.....IT WILL NOT WORK.

Firstly I have NOT even mentioned that I am complaining about the GLD's 'remit'.....never mentioned that word. Then you go on to say what you think I want from the GLD this by saying that I want them to acknowledge their failings.......this, when I have said no such thing. For what use is it to me, even if it did admit ANY failings?? I am old enough and wise enough to have seen that when governmENt departments do own up to failings, they all seem to think that if they apologise that's good enough. No Sir, what I want is for them to answer fully, the questions I posed re A/P's. IE that they do supply them to the IPO and that Hobbs was supplied to the IPO in this case, that Hobbs was an employee of theirs when he officiated at that bogus appeal hearing. If he wasn't an employee as they would have it.....who employed him and who was responsible for his behaviour? Then the most
important question I want answered is: As he broke the law on several counts who is responible for investigating his actions? (AND I DON'T WANT TO HEAR SOMEONE TELLING ME TO GO TO THE POLICE !!) For I've already been there and as as is usual with that rabble......they do not investigate anything these days. They refused to do anything and intimated I was wasting their time etc, etc, As far as I am concerned, as this Hobbs bloke works for the British Justice System his employers should instigate an investigation or order the Police to do it.

You go on to asking me to explain how losing my legally registered Trade Mark ruined my life and business. If you cannot see how that could do this, then I am not going to waste my time trying to educate you. In any case, that is moving away from what I have complained about re the GLD and its non actions etc re my complaint to them. Then if that line of questioning isn't bad enough, you then ask me to explain 'specifically' how the GLD's complaint handling has affected me. Listen Sonny, if you had started a business that was highly successful and should have enabled you at the point when you could retire, to be able to do that with sufficient funds (due to the business) that would enable a confortable retirement. But instead your business is ruined by the criminal actions of a crook who is aided by the IPO and this Hobbs QC, at that crooked alleged Appeal Hearing at which Hobbs helped the crook to circumvent the decison that went against him. (to which he was trying to appeal) This by breaking every rule in the justice book and by giving him LEGAL ADVICE BY THE BUCKET LOAD. Had that happened to you, you wouldn't be asking that stupid question, as you would understand full well how such actions impact on anyone.

By following that advice and being helped by the IPO........all that put the finishing touches to the ruination of my once successful business....GET IT?? I THEN END UP RUINED AND IN PENURY, SUFFERED A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK THROUGH THE STRESS, WITH MY HOPEFULLY COMFORTABLE RETIREMENT IN TATTERS.  Is that clear enough for you???? All that has been exacerbated by the British Establishments covering all that up !!!!!! The GLD and their actions and non actions, because they are the very justice department that is responsible for the very bloke who cynically made possible, the loss of my T/M. AND YOU ASK ME TO EXPLAIN HOW THEIR HANDLING OF THEIR COMPLAINT SYSTEM HAS AFFECTED ME !!!! If you haven't the brains or will to understand EXACTLY how that has affected me or indeed would affect anyone, then YOU ARE NOT FIT FOR THE JOB YOU ARE IN.

Let me tell you that there isn't a day when I think how I have suffered at the hands of a CORRUPT BRITISH JUSTICE SYSTEM AND BY A CROOK BARRISTER QC/JUDGE. AND NOT FORGETTING THE THE WAY A CORRUPT JUSTICE SYSTEM THAT HAS SYSTEMATICALLY DONE EVERYTHING TO SWEEP IT ALL UNDER THE CARPET.
That constant reminder and feeling is helped by the poor life and monetary sircumstances I have been put to, by all this corruption. Then every time I hear some arrogant Politician or legal person crowing about how lucky we Brits are to live in a country ruled by the rule of law, when that law system can and does carry out acts that drive a coach & horses right through the heart of that system, which is claimed to be the cleanest in the World !! Utter lies and bullshit I say, as do many others.

So there you have it and now you are fully in the picture and can go away and think about how you can invent excuses and make up lies to wiggle out of doing anything about the refusals of the GLD to do their duty. But let me tell you this ....if that happens my next step will be to get this out into the Public and you and the Establishment will not like what that step that will be.

Be warned that your emails and letters and all my emails and letters go onto my blog which has dealt with all this corruption since it started in 2008.

Regards,

Ken Cook

Dear Mr Cook

Your complaint about the Government Legal Department (the GLD)

We have completed our consideration of your complaint about the GLD and  I am writing to tell you the outcome. To reach this decision we reviewed the information you have provided. Having done this, we have decided not to consider your complaint further;  this is because we have seen no evidence that anythi.ng went seriously wrong when the GLD addressed your complaint.
I  understand that our decision may be disappointing,  but I will explain the reasons for this and the factors we have considered in our assessment of your complaint.

Your complaint.

You complain that the GLD has not answered your questions or concerns about a barrister you say it provided during a case involving your business's trademark in 2007.  You also complain that the GLD has not Investigated the conduct of the barrister.

You say the actions of the GLD appointed barrister resulted in you losing your registered trademark and ruined your business, causing you financial detriment and a great deal of stress.

You want the GLD to respond to your questions and concerns,  and to investigate the barrister's conduct.

Reasons for our decision

The GLD's response to your complaint

You complained to the GLD on  12 February 2019 about the barrister you say it appointed in 2007 for an appeal hearing at the Intellectual Property Office (the IPO). The GLD responded to your complaint and follow up emails on 12 March,18 March, and 1 April 2019.

In the GLD's responses it explains that ultimately you wish to complain about the conduct and decision made by the barrister, 1. and that its complaint procedure 2. does not apply in this case. It says the barrister is not an employee 3. or client of the GLD,  and an Appointed Person is appointed to the role by the Judicial Appointments Commission,  so any issues about the conduct of an Appointed Person should be raised with the Judicial Conduct lnvestigations Office  (JCIO).

You wrote back to the GLD to dispute this information and the GLD replied making it clear that it   never employed or appointed the barrister in this case. 4. and the appropriate body to which you  need to complain is the JCIO. The GLD then directs you to us.

The GLD responded to your concerns by explaining that the barrister is nothing to do with it, and you need to complain to a different organisation.  It is clear you believe otherwise and that the GLD has not answered your concerns or investigated the barrister.  However, investigating the conduct of a barrister is not the GLD's role,  and this is ultimately what your complaint is about.  Our view is that the GLD has responded to your concerns and given you advice on how to take them forward. 5.


We acknowledge that you are not happy with the GLD's response,  but we cannot see an indication of a failing here.

It is important to also acknowledge that the substantive issues in your complaint are about the conduct and decision made by a barrister. 6. While you have complained to us that the GLD is failing to adequately respond to your complaint,  It all stems from the conduct of a barrister during a legal process which would be outside of our remit. 7.

In summary, we have decided we will not take further action on your complaint.  I  hope I  have explained the thorough consideration we have given to our decision and clearly outlined the reasons for it.

If you have any feedback about our service or decision then please let me know within one month of the date of this letter.
*********************************************************************************

MY COMMENTS - on specific points that the Ombudsman stated which were untrue and at odds with the real facts:-

Statement 1- Weaver states that Hobbs made a decision......when I made it clear that no hearing took place and in any case it was dropped! (And there is clear documentary evidence of this)

Statement 2.- They say I used the GLD Complaints Procedure. Untrue as I made a Formal Complaint about the cations of Hobbs and asked them to INVESTIGATE that! This is entiretly different from using a government department laid down procedures about how that department has failed. I was complaining about the criminal actions of someone that was put forward by them to officiate in a Tribunal Hearing-which never took place.

Statement 3 -They state that the GLD said that Hobbs was not an employee. Yet it is striking that they utterly failed to say exactly what he was and who did he work for, as I asked, seeing as they were washing their hands of him...."NOTHING TO DO WIV US GOV" - Syndrome.

Statement 4 - They point out that the GLD said Hobbswas never employed by them or that they
                      appointed Hobbs in this case. Yet they utterly fail to explain what their actual
                      connection was re A/P's.  Even I asked them to explain.

Statement 5 - They say the GLD gave me advice on how to take it forward. THIS IS AN
                       OUTRIGHT LIE as they never did.

Statement 6 - They say I should acknowledge that the issue re my complaint is about a 'decision by a
                       Barrister'- when once more they use this outright lie, as they know he never made any
                       decision-as I told them many times, that the case was dropped !!!!!

Statement 7 - They say that the conduct of Hobbs during a legal process, makes it outside their remit                       Yet another gross lie as they know that there was no appeal hearing therefor how can
                      there have been any 'legal process' ??? This is yet another vile trick and a lie they have
                      used to twist the facts to conveniently make it possible for them to make such claims
                      and get out of doing anything.

YOU SHOULD NOTE THAT IN THE NEXT LETTER OF REPLY  AND APPEAL I SENT THEM ABOUT THIS PACK OF LIES THEY SENT ME........THEY HAVE SO FAR IGNORED ALL THAT I SAID AND HAVE NOT SO FAR, EVEN REPLIED.......PAR FOR COURSE.

APPEAL AGAINST YOUR DECISION  OF 2ND JULY 2019

From   ken cook
To:        kevin.weager@ombudsman.org.uk
Date:    Thursday, 4 July 2019,11:03  BST
https://mail.ychoo.com/d/folders/30
Mr Weager,
Your email knocking back my complaint about the GLD was entirely predictably and it followed a long line of similar knockbacks by various civil service departments to do with this subject. The corrupt practices you people in power come out with in order to protect yourselves against the complaints made by the public, always follow the same paths.  Namely denials of the 'Facts', ignoring the 'Facts', ignoring evidence given you, twisting the facts so they end up meaning something else, which ties in with what you want to achieve, lying through your back teeth, ignoring the lies of others even when evidence is given you that they lied and so on, ad infinitum.  It's quite sickening and I have been on the end of all this since 2002.  So you're latest bunch of liars etc and it's just another attempt to get rid of me and is yet another act against me, in the last 20 years over this lPO problem.

So your email contains statements that are at odds with the truth and I will now show you what they are and some with backing evidence, as I never make claims I cannot back with evidence. You kick off on your very first line of page 2.You state"About a barrister you say it appointed' This implies that I am saying something that is not fact and only in my imagination and thus could make all I say, not fact or believable.

I note that in your email of the 1st July you asked me to answer several questions which I did by return.  Now as I have since 2002 much experience in how the civil service works .... I KNOW THAT REPLIES ALWAYS TAKE WEEKS.  In fact you took over SIX WEEKS to reply to my original request and only after I complained about breaking your promise to deal with it 'shortly' did I get a reply. Yet after I sent you my email with my answers to your questions, you reply with your predicted knockback email ..... THE VERY NEXT DAV !! Plus it is quite obvious you had that reply sitting there just waiting for me to reply to your box ticking email designed to show you were handling my complaint by your undoubted boxticking rule book and no doubt to your departments laid down practices for evasive replying.  It is also obvious that you have connived with the GLD over what you said in that knockback reply letter. For nowhere in my 9/4/19 letter of complaint re the GLD, to you, did I even mention that I complained to the GLD 'about the conduct in an appeal and a decision by the barrister'.   What I asked the GLD to do, WAS TO 'lNVESTIGATE' the unlawful and criminal actions of Hobbs QC.  In my letter to you of the 9th June I was at pains to tell you in CAPITALS (3rd paragraph) that there had been NO JUDICIAL HEARING EVER HELD, S0 NO DECISION COULD BE MADE.

This is telling me that you have connived with the GLD to formulate this reply and you have been fed this erroneous information by them .... FOR IT COULD ONLY HAVE COME FROM THEM !! YOU GO ON TO TELLING ME THE HISTORY OF WHAT WENT ON BETWEEN  ME AND THE GLD in your 2nd, third and fourth paragraphs. Which I obviously know all about, as do you, as I gave you copies of our correspondence. So you are peddling to me the GLD's slant on my request to them and not being INDEPENDENT.  This instead of asking why did the GLD say what they did, which was in one case an outright lie and other statements are of dubious value.You utterly failed to deal with the LIE,which they made about not providing Appointed Persons to the IPO, even though I gave you PROOF of that. WHY IS THAT??

One dubious statement is that Appointed Persons are appointed by JAC. This when who appoints them is IRRELEVANT, as it is who is responsible for their ACTIONS AND BEHAVOUR on a daily basis.  I asked them questions about this, which they ignored and YOU HAVE IN THIS KNOCKBACK LETTER -ALSO IGNORED !! I have pointed out to you in my letter of the 9th April, that I am entitled to know the answers to these questions, so why have you ignored that completely, thus siding with the GLD !! ln any case, according to evidence documents which I attach in this email, I had been given various statements about who appoints AIP's which ranged from the Lord Chancellor, the MOJ, and the Treasury Solicitors.  Now I have to add to that list, the JCIO and this is what we have to put up with,constant incompetence together with outright lies,so we never know who to deal with and much time is wasted. However back in 2009 I complained to OJC which is now JCIO and they flatly refused to deal with it at all and never said they were responsible for appointing A/P's.

If the GLD wish to deny they have anything to do with A/P's, why did they not answer my questions as to who is responsible? Thus enabling me to take my concerns to them and away from the GLD?? And why have you sided with them by ignoring all the documentary evidence I sent you which proves them not wishing to investigate Hobbs. Part of that evidence is my email to a Kiernan Walker of the 16th March (DOC 3) in which I talk about the criminal Barristers opinion I sent him, which shows Hobbs unlawful behaviour. You have said nothing about that either and the ignoring of that by the GLD. You do seem to wish to ignore the fact that what I accuse Hobbs of;  IS CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR and that the GLD are ignoring that and refusing to investigate it.  By condoning that you are siding with the GLD. This is again shown by you when the GLD in Doc 4, a Stephen Brown states in his 2nd paragraph of his email of the 18th March, that the GLD do not employ A/P's, yet the documentary evidence I now show you, shows that the GLD Treasury Solicitors do play a big role in the role and employment of them and their work at officiating at 'Appeals' by the IPO. Someone is lying here and it's so obvious the GLD is trying to deny everything, contary to the evidence and you are by your denials and standing up for them and what they have said, are siding with them. What Brown says in that email in para 2 is that I am complaining about the conduct of an Appeal heard by Hobbs, when this is a gross misrepresentation of what the FACTS were and what I was asking. IE there was no appeal, so no decision and I asked for an investigation into his unlawiul actions committed at that meeting (not and appeal) which is the EXACT same position they would be in if Hobbs had assaulted somone at a meeting, or robbed them or some other criminal action`  lt would be their duty to investigate and if necessary involve the LAW and have the A/P charged.  (One would hope they would or maybe it would be yet another coverup !!)

The Facts are that the GLD are HEAVILY involved in supplying A/P's for appeals and I have first hand knowledge that that is the case as I made an appeal to the IPO and asked for it to be held by and AIP. The GLD supplied one-a Professor Annand and I had to correspond a number of times with the Treasury Solicitors (GLD) leading up to the Appeal Hearing. So once more they are LYING when they intimate that they have nothing to do with supplying AIP's and Appeals.

So your stating that the GLD has responded to my concerns is yet another gross misinterpretation of the FACTS and their so called advice to go the the JCIO is just another fob off, which years ago I tried and got nowhere. It is clear that either you have never read the 10 evidence documents or you choose to ignore all that I said and showed in them. You choose to ignore that I asked many questions of the GLD and THEY ANSWERED NONE OF THEM.  Is this behaviour by a Justice Department to be condoned by you, for that is the crux of my complaint to you. The GLD have lied, (and I proved this to you) they have ignored many questions and they took on a number of occassions, more time to respond than they should have.

Finally in your 6th paragraph you again show that you are deliberately misinterpreting what I have said, because you again will have it that there was a judicial hearing and a decision made, which I complained about. And you compound this by then showing again a gross failure of what the truth was about, re the meeting Hobbs had with my opponent. This by having it that Hobbs was CONDUCTING A 'LEGAL PROCESS'  and because it was a legal process, it is outside your remit.  I REPEAT THE FACT:-THERE WAS NO JUDICIAL PROCESS OR APPEAL HEARING,..IT WAS JUST HELD AS A MEETING  IN WHICH 46 PAGES OF LEGAL ADVICE WAS DOLED OUT AND OTHER UNLAWFUL ACTS WERE COMMITTED. (All seen in the copy of the transcript I sent you) Saying it was a legal process is a gross LIE and you do it to get out of bringing the GLD to task for the way they treated me when I asked them to INVESTIGATE CRIMINAL ACTIONS BY THE   BARRISTER THEY PUT FORWARD TO HEAR THIS BOGUS APPEAL, WHICH IN FACT NEVER TOOK PLACE AS IT WAS DROPPED.  I included documentary evidence to back up all that.  It is as clear as it can be: you are covering up for the GLD and no doubt coached to do so by them.  Let us face it that is their remit .... to give legal advice to government departments which is what you are.

Furthermore by stating in paragraph 6 what you do, you are trying to have it that my complaint to you is all about that bogus meeting and what went on at it, when CLEARLY my complaint is about the GLD and not about that at all, as I KNOW you will use this excuses you have,  not to do anything. IT IS CLEAR THAT MY COMPLAINT ABOUT THE OLD IS THE REFUSAL TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS AND LYING TO ME. This behaviour by you again shows you are trying to PROTECT the GLD and NOT protecting a member of the Public from the excesses of a government department, which is what you are supposed to be there for. But then it is well known that you have no interest in protecting the Public and are more interested in protecting incompetent and law breaking government departments

I would appreciate your further lies and excuses as soon as possible so I can take this further.

The Judicial Office,
HM Courts and Tribunal Service,

6/7/19

Dear Sir,

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ON APPOINTED PERSONS. (A/P's)

I am in the process of appealing a decision made by a govemment department because the facts they outlined in their decision and which dealt with Appointed Persons who hear appeals at IPO Tribunals, was completely at odds with the true facts.
I was told that they did not have anything to do with appointing A/P's or that they employed them. I was told that they were appointed by the Judicial Appointments Commission. So1wrote to them and  asked them if they would answer some questions.They wrote back telling me that they did not appoint A/P's but merely ran thes election process which picks out people who wish to become A/P's, when asked to do so by the HMCTS.
They went on to tell me that I should contact your office to have my questions answered.(See copy of their email telling me this).So here I am and as I have to put my evidence to the department 1 am dealing within 30 days. Actually1 need to get my evidence away to them before 30 days is up.
Here are the questions I need answers to:

'1/When say a Barrister decides they wish to become an Appointed Personin order to hear appeals held by the IPO, they have to put in an application which goes to JAC who run the selection process. I am told those that are successful then are controlled by yourselves in their job as an A/P and possibly by the HMCTS. Is this 100% correct and if not please describe that process correctly.

2/I need to know that when a Barrister becomes an A/P, who employs him/her? JAC state they become employees of the HMCTS and the MOJ. The HMCTS website states they are a section of the MOJ. (See copy email saying this.)

3/JAC also state that A/P's are fee paid judicial office holders.So1need to know who pays them these fees.It seems to me that as they are said to be`employees'of the HMTCS/MOJ,then it stands to reason that one of those entities pays them. IS THIS CORRECT ?

4/In normal life out in the real world, anyone who is employed by a company, is therefore an employee and paid by that company and is the responsibility of that company. Responsible for the work they do and the quality and behaviour, when doing that work. IS THIS CORRECT for A/P's?

Four fairly straight forward questions I believe you should be able to answer off the top of your head. I would be therefore obliged if you could get an answer off to me quite quickly and to help in that quickness and make it easier for you to do so, you could send the answer via email.

Many thanks,  K.Cook.

*********************************************************************************

I got a reply to this request for answers TO SPECIFIC QUESTIONS, some 16 days later on the 22nd in a short email to be seen below

THIS IS HOW ALL SECTIONS AND OFFICES OF OUR JUDICIAL SYSTEM TREAT PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO GET ANSWERS OUT OF THEM....DISGRACEFUL. 

They obviously cannot be arsed to reply to the 4 questions I asked, plus of course they do not to put their heads on the block by doing so and that's if they ever replied honestly! So what they did was copy to me ALL the emails I'd sent them asking for answers, which were never replied to -fully.
Hence why I was forced to ask them the SPECIFIC QUESTIONS again and in the 6/7/19 letter as above.

This is how these civil service, devious arsholes behave because they know if they reply honestly, the answers may put them in a bad light. So they try and trick you with non answers like you see below which in actual fact is treating me with contempt. The emails I was sending -was me asking them questions of the same ilk as seen in the above letter of mine, dated the 6th July and which were not being answered FULLY, thus making me ask again and again- trying to get the evasive sods to give me the answer to my questions, instead of going all around the bushes in their evasiveness. Another sneaky thing they do is they do not put on their emails who in fact was replying-no name at end of email meassage so-ANON :-

Corrupt Government Legal Department PT 5.

FURTHER UPDATE  2/6/19.

I sent in my complaint meant for the Parliamentary Ombudsman via Tobias Ellwood MP on the 21st April. As you will have seen, he slowed it by insisting I fill in a form which I did and he notified me on the 4th May he'd sent it in to the Ombudsman.

Almost a MONTH later the Ombudsman has just sent me a letter confirming they have received it and it's now in the extreme time wasting machinery of a government department. Disappeared as you may say "into a huge black hole". I am informed "A case worker will now decide wheter we should carry out an investigation. ...there will be an extended wait....as we are working on a higher number of cases" Notice that they avoid like the plague saying they are complaints about government departments including the NHS (there will be untold thousands of NHS complaints clogging up the Ombudsman). This is what we ALWAYS HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ! Hence why it can take years going nowhere, being lied to and pushed onto other departments, who go through the same long winded avoidence tactics. Then at some stage you will be told your complaint is  "OUT IF TIME!"
Yes; because they have deliberately fucked you well and truly over to make you out of time ....then they can tell you to bugger off and out of their hair !

You can bet, either they will say they cannot investigate this shyster GLD Mob for some spurious lying reason, OR they will invent a whole load of lying excuses and alleged reasons why they cannot investigate either the case and what went on, or the GLD as they are 'Protected' in some way. They give that game away by going on to tell me "We also have to check if we can investigate in line with our 'legal powers'............GO ON HAVE A GUESS WHICH IT WILL BE. AND ALL THIS IS ONLY A COMPLAINT THAT THE GLD LIED WHOLESALE TO ME (AND WITH PROOF THEY DID) and THEY REFUSED TO ANSWER A NUMBER OF LEGIT QUESTIONS.

WHAT A SHOWER WE HAVE TO PUT UP WITH AND THAT IS NOW READILY SEEN IN THE RULING CLASSES ACTIONS OVER THE PAST 3 YEARS OVER BREXIT.

IF that eventuates its back to Ellwood to try and get him to do his duty to a constituent and one who is a VET who he says he specialises in representing, in some way.

Corrupt Government Legal Department Pt4

UPDATE-28/4/19.

I SENT IN ALL THE LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS AS SEEN BELOW, TO ELLWOOD MP ON THE 10TH APRIL AND HE TOOK 3 WEEKS TO GET BACK TO ME AND THAT WAS ONLY BECAUSE I SENT HIM AN EMAIL ASKING WHY I HAD NOT RECEIVED AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT FROM HIM THAT HE HAD RECEIVED IT ALL AND HAD SENT IT ON TO THE OMBUDSMAN. THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO PUT UP WITH.
However he told me that as I had not included a Form that the Ombudsman insist you fill in to send with the complaint (More stifling bureaucracy as you end up supplying the same info as included in you complaint letter) and so he could not send it in. I have now filled it in its gone off to him.
HOWEVER THE TELLING THING HERE IS THAT I HAD ASKED HIM TO READ MY COMPLAINT SO HE COULD SEE WHAT I WAS UP AGAINST, NOT ONLY BECAUSE THE GLD HAD LIED TO ME BUT THE OVERALL SITUATION IS THAT THE JUSTICE ESTABLISHMENT WERE TRYING TO BRUSH ALL THIS UNDER THE CARPET AND HOW COULD HE HELP ME AS MY MP. PLUS HE BOASTS THAT HE SPECIALISES IN HELPING VETS WHICH I AM. IT IS TELLING THAT HE IGNORED ALL OF THAT AND JUST TOLD ME TO LET THE OMBUDSMAN DEAL WITH THE COMPLAINT.
IN OTHER WORDS HE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN HELPING AT ALL AND I AM GOING TO GET BACK TO HIM AND INSIST HE DOES.


So for the latest in this shocking saga of a rampant corrupt Justice department that astonishingly gives out legal advice to our useless government, yet it is itself, corrupt !! AND THIS IS WHY AT THE MOMENT, OUR  USELESS MRS MAY IS BEING FED CRAP LEGAL ADVICE AND SO IS BEING SHAT ON BY THE EU....SO MUCH FOR THE GLD !! I had sent the CEO of this utter shower, a Formal Complaint about how is department was lying to me. I sent him copies of the emails I'd sent in asking various questions and getting no answers and being lied to when they told me that they never supplied Appointed Persons to the IPO.

I EVEN SENT HIM A COPY OF THE EMAIL THE IPO SENT ME A WEEK AGO THAT CONFIRMED THAT THEY, WHEN THEY WANTED AN APPOINTED PERSON TO OFFICIATE IN AN APPEAL HEARING ........IT WENT TO THE GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT !!!!

But no, these utter assholes are so arrogant and so cocksure that they can do whatever the hell they like.....AND GET AWAY WITH IT !!!!!! They tell the most outright and clear LIES AND WHO THE HELL IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO STOP THEM??????

I asked him reasonable questions about Appointed Persons and who supplied them, if they say they don't and more importantly WHO PAYS them. Is the IPO lying?? Well I sent him several documents which showed beyond doubt, that the GLD or Treasury Solicitors as they are also called, supplied them, I included documents that showed that when I MYSELF ASKED THAT AN APPEAL HEARING OF MINE BE HELD BEFORE AN APPOINTED PERSON, SHE WAS SUPPLIED BY....YES....THE T/SOL !!!.

The asshole CEO called Jonathon Jones,, so smug is he, that he told me as if I did not know, that if I were dissatisfied with his short letter and bunch of lies to my 3 page letter....well I could take it to the Parliamentary Ombudsman. YES THE SAME CORRUPT BUNCH WHO RECENTLY COVERED UP FOR THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE OVER THE SAME TOPIC WHEN THEY OBFUSCATED AND LIED. SO HE KNOWS THEY WILL ALSO COVER UP FOR HIM AND ALL I WILL GET IS ANOTHER BUCKET FULL OF LIES ETC FROM THEM.

WATCH THIS SPACE TO SEE THAT ALL HAPPENS, AS MY COMPLAINT ABOUT THE GLD HAS NOW GONE IN AND WHILE I WAS AT IT, AS IT HAS TO GO TO THEM VIA YOUR MP,
I ASKED HIM (ELLWOOD) TO READ IT ALL AND TELL ME HOW HE COULD ACT AND HELP ME OVER THIS MONSTROUS EXAMPLE OF OUR CORRUPT JUSTICE SYSTEM.
AS HE BOASTS HE IS THE DEFENCE MINISTRY SPECIALIST FOR VETERANS......I POINTED OUT THAT I WAS A VETERAN OF 8YEARS IN THE RAF AND HAD BEEN ON ACTIVE SERVICE TWICE IN CYPRUS AND ADEN. (UNLIKE HIS CLEAN 5 YEARS) SO WHAT WAS HE GOING TO DO TO HELP A FELLOW VET????? PLACE YOUR BETS, FOR THIS MAN IS ONLY INTERESTED IN CLIMBING THE GREASY POLE AND ALL HE THINKS ABOUT NOW IS BECOMING OUR NEXT USELESS PM !!!!

WHEN I GET TIME, I WILL POST ONTO THIS POST THE LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS I SENT THE CEO OF THE GLD PLUS MY LETTER TO THE PARLIAMENTARY OMBUDSMAN
ASKING THEM TO INVESTIGATE WHAT THE GLD HAVE DONE.

PLACE YOUR BETS NOW THAT ALL I WILL GET IS LIES,OBFUSCATIONS, EXCUSES AND WORST OF ALL EXCUSES AS TO HOW THEY CANNOT INVESTIGATE.

FIRSTLY I SHOW THE LETTER I SENT THE OMBUDSMAN :-

 
The Parliamentary Ombudsman,
Millbank Tower,
Millbank,
London.

9/4/19.

Dear Sirs,

FORMAL COMPLAINT RE THE GOVERNMENT LEGAL DEPARTMENT.

Background.

In 2007 a Barrister, one Hobbs QC acted as an Appointed Person on behalf of an Appellant who was appealing a decision the Intellectual Property Office had made against him. Although the subject matter was about my registered Trade Mark, I was refused attendance. I subsequently found that Hobbs had at the alleged hearing, committed several unlawful acts that perverted the course of justice and against me.

The alleged hearing was NEVER an appeal hearing, but a meeting where Hobbs gave the Appellant
legal advice which if he acted out would circumvent the decision which went against him. This was unlawful on several counts. I have a criminal Barristers opinion that this was the case. Over the past years I have tried to obtain justice over this and to cut a long story short, last year I arrived in my fight to the point where knowing that the Barrister who had been supplied to the IPO by the Treasury Solicitors, now known as the Government Legal Department, to the IPO, who I believed were an arm of the Ministry of Justice as it said they were at thaT time of around 2008/9.

I accordingly asked the MoJ to investigate the unlawful actions of Hobbs who was not independent and working through a Barristers Chambers, but was an employee of the T.Sol. THIS WAS NOT A CASE OF A JUDICIAL HEARING HELD IN A QUASI JUDICIAL TRIBUNAL HEARING, NO DECISION HAD BEEN MADE AS HOBBS ADVISED THE APPELLANT TO DROP THE APPEAL. So making excuses that decisions made in judicial hearing cannot be overturned etc will not wash. Or that Barristers are independent is another excuse that does not apply here. FOR WHAT THIS BARRISTER CARRIED OUT AT WHAT WAS ONLY A MEETING WHERE ADVICE WAS UNLAWFULLY DISHED OUT, WAS CRIMINAL AND HE SHOULD FACE THE CONSEQUENCES AND AS HE IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE GLD (T/SOL) THEY HAVE A DUTY TO INVESTIGATE AND CARRY OUT ACTIONS AGAINST HOBBS FOR HIS CRIMINALITY. BARRISTERS ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW EVEN IF THEY WERE ACTING AS AN INDEPENDENT FORCE. EVEN JUDGES ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.

Of course the Judicial Establishment simply do not want to admit to any of this, even though it runs a coach & horses through our very rule of law etc. How can it be said we live in a country under the rule of law when this can happen within it? IT HAS BECOME A FACT that at every turn, everyone I have approached including the MoJ and the GLD, simply will not address my request for JUSTICE.
The MoJ have lied by saying they had no ‘JURISDICTION’ over this….as you well know as you handled my complaint about this and sided with the, (predictably), BUT THEY GIVE THEIR GAME AWAY BY REFUSING TO EXPLAIN WHY AND YOUR REFUSAL TO GET THEM TO DO THIS MAKES YOU AS BAD AS THEM. Well of course it is blindingly obvious they simply DO NOT WANT THIS EVER TO COME OUT. SO IT HAS TO BE BRUSHED UNDER THE CARPET WITH YOUR HELP.
And there is form for this covering up by our so called Justice departments, for the Moj are under investigation by the police over illegal acts…..as they covered up research about cuts to legal aid.
(Which as it happens, means I am where I am as I’ve been made penniless and have no access to Legal Aid.)

I obviously, after the MoJ lies and refusal to give out answers, have gone to the GLD and this is what I am reporting to you. For they have resorted to the same old lies, obfuscations and denials.
I am enclosing copies of my letters to them and their lies they sent back and how they cynically lied again:-

Document 1. My letter of the 11th March 2019 asking them why they have not responded after a MONTH to my letter of the 12th February 2019 ,when I asked them to investigate Hobbs and including with my letter copies of 16 documents that prove my case. What I laid out in my 12/2/19 letter is not part of this complaint as it’s not your job the investigate unlawful matters as in this case scenario, but to make sure that the body it was sent to, acts properly and does not lie and cover up anything!

Document 2. Is their short reply of the 12th March by a Kiernan Walker, denying that Hobbs ever was an employee despite my evidence he was and not offering any explanation as to why he wasn’t and why they can say he wasn’t, when they supplied him to act as an Appointed Person to the IPO. The writer also denies the GLD supplies AP’s to the IPO, which is a blatant LIE. They also fed me misleading alleged information trying to show they were helping me, which they were told I’d already approached them years ago.

Document 3. Is my email reply to Walker you can see that I am asking a list of questions and making observations.

Document 4. Is a reply from the GLD from a Mr Stephen Brown who is Walkers boss, but he does not answer anything I asked and merely gives out excuses and NO ANSWERS.

Document 5. Is my reply email to Mr Brown asking specific questions.

Document 6. Is Mr Browns reply: Note he fails to answer anything and makes the LIE that the GLD do not supply to the IPO Appointed Persons.

Document 7. is a copy of the email sent me by the IPO who confirm that the above is a LIE

Document 8. is my reply to the above and pointing out the truth of A/P’s as supplied by the GLD and asking specific questions.
*** This you should note was not replied to. Now this is a typical civil service cop out tactic when you got them into a corner and they know to reply TRUTHFULLY will give their game away. So they ignore that letter and that just shows what they are up to.

Document 9. I now have had enough of their lies and obfuscations and send in my Formal Complaint letter to their CEO a Jonathon Jones with enough copies of documents that show up the lies etc. Note it is 3 pages long with 11 copies of the documents to show him what has been going on.

Document 10. His very short reply which is an insult to me and the gravity of what I am exposing.
He also head it as a “Formal Complaint about Hobbs QC”, when I was now in the process of complaining formally about the lies etc of his employees. This is what I have to put up with.

None of my pertinent questions have been answered by any of the three people involved, let alone acknowledging the documents I sent in and what they proved and I have been fed misleading information an lies and given not one jot of of bona-fide help in how this can and will be handled. Now either these people including the CEO are fools and dunces or more likely they are indulging in typical civil service skulduggery of lies and misinformation, misleading comments and so on, hoping you will be thick enough to be fooled by it all and will give up & go away…….NO CHANCE.

So it is again over to you, but are you going to indulge in the same tactics….THAT IS THE BIG QUESTION. However it is clear that the way they have behaved and treated me is so far below the standards I should expect from our Justice System, let alone the very department that is supposed to give legal advice to our government and its departments.. NO WONDER OUR COUNTRY IS BROKEN AND DYSFUNCTIONAL AND HAS BEEN FOR ENDLESS DECADES AND AGAIN CAN BE SEEN IN THE BREXIT SHENANIGANS AND LIES.

I look forward to receiving your excuses and lies as you did with my complaint about the MoJ.

Regards,

Ken Cook,

11/3/2019.

Dear Sirs,

FORMAL COMPLAINT RE YOUR IGNORING MY COMPLAINT SENT YOU ON THE 12TH FEBRUARY 2019.

I sent you via Registered Mail a comprehensive 8 page complaint, re the unlawful actions of a Barrister, one Hobbs QC, together with copies of 16 documents (including a 47 page transcript of a meeting he officiated in, which was a bogus Appeal Hearing and which his actions he carried out, which perverted the course of justice). This was received by one of your employees who signed as `Mack'
Despite your website stating that such complaints would be dealt with within 10 working days or would at least give a reason for any delay in a response, to this date which is now about ONE MONTH ON, I HAVE BEEN IGNORED. THIS IS SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS and one I have over
the years come to expect of our rotten so called justice system and from its civil servants within.

I  made a point of asking you to return said documents along with your reply.

I now wish to complain about all this and receive a response. As no one department of yours was initially concerned, obviously my complaint was not directed to a specific department. Never the less you have no right to do nothing.

I now look forward to a response and by return seeing as I have now lost a month in time.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir

RE:  FORMAL COMPLAINT AGAINST MR HOBBS QC

I  refer to your letter dated  10  February 2019 and  I  apologise for the delay in  replying.
I  have noted the enclosures,  the originals of which are being  returned to you with this letter as you  requested.

I  note that you  have sought to use GLD's complaints  procedure to complain about a decision  made by Mr Hobbs QC in his capacity as Appointed  Person for the purposes of an appeal from the Intellectual  Property Office (IPO).

To be clear,  as Mr Hobbs QC is not an  employee or a `client' of GLD our complaints procedure has  no application  in this instance.   GLD has  no role in  how Appeals to the Appointed  Person are conducted or the actions  of the  Intellectual  Property Office generally. GLD's  role  in  relation to the  lPO  is  limited to  providing administrative assistance.

An Appointed  Person  is appointed to that role  by the Judicial Appointments Commission.     Any issues arising out of the conduct of an Appointed  Person should  be raised with the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office.

I  hope that this  letter clarifies the position.

DOC 3. MY REPLY TO KIERNAN

To:kieman.walker@governmentlegal.gov.uk

Dear Sir,

Re your short reply letter to my complaint letter and evidence documents  You have engaged in yet another whitewash exercise to brush this under the carpet and I fully expected the to happen, as it has happened at every level of complaints l've made to various justice system departments that are supposed to deal with such complaints. The capacity of the British Justice System has for lying, obfuscating and doing everything to hide its misdemeanours is astonishing and that from a system supposed to be sqeaky clean and to dispense honest justice, is astonishing and a national disgrace. You all seem to think that all we peasants out there are as thick as two short planks, so cannot see what you people are up to.

You state 'I note you complain about a decision made by Hobbe QC'. Now, either you never read my letter or looked at the evidence documents and their contents, or you are deliberately lying. For I NEVER COMPLAINED ABOUT ANY DECISION AS THERE WAS NO DECISION .. .I COMPLAINED ABOUT THE  UNLAWFUL BEHAVIOUR OFF HOBBS.

I INCLUDED AN OPINION DOCUMENT BY AN INDEPENDENT BARRISTER, which you either never read and have ignored, as it is inconvient for you.

You try to have it that Hobbs was not an employee of the GLD.  He may not be now,  but he was then an employee of the Treasury Solicitors and please do "not try it on that now some bright spark has wasted taxpayers money renaming the T/Sol, you have no jurisdiction over what the T/Sol did",   I won't buy that and you have also ignored the fact that on your wesite the GLD clearly states that lawyers etc (and a barrister is a lawyer) are employees.  I am sure the work Hobbs did for the T/Sol in any capacfty, he got paid for this and by the T/Sol, for who else would pay him his wags/fees ?? That in any ones world (except your world of cheats and liars) this would mean he was an EMPLOYEE. He was not then working through a Chambers.

You would have it that Hobbs is not an employee of the GLD. (This is said in the present tense) So what is he NOW, is irrelevant, because it is what he was in 2007 when he worked for the T/Sol. It thus follows that as an employee of the T/Sol they (now the OLD) are responsible for any unlawful acts he carried out in their employment.

Straight after I got and saw the transcript  I complained to the T/Sol  They like you, lied about everything I alleged and would have it that the actions of Hobb were sqeaky clean and above reproach and he could do what he wanted.  Funny how a criminal Barrister specialist sees it otherwise but then you are not interested in that as it is inconvenient for you in your efforts to protect one of your own and cover it up  Even I as a layman, know that he should have been 100% independent and certainly should not have indulged in heaps of advice giving to the crook trying to steal my IP.  It is telling that they did  not use the same lies as you now use. I was fobbed off and told to go to other judicial complaints bodies, just as you are doing.

However the GLD does still supply to the IPO (they have confirmed they still apply to yourselves for A/P's, with barristers and others, acting in appeals for the IPO. Again this just shows that these people you dish out to the IPO are not given out for FREE, and they must be renumerated by yourselves, thus as I've said they are EMPLOYEES as you state on your website...or is that a lie too?? Your saying you only give .Administrative Assistance- to the IPO, is yet another lie, as any A/P you put forward can hardly be described 'assistance'. IT IS A `SERVICE', like you supply to OTHER GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS AND BODIES AND THEY CAN HARDLY BE FOR FREE! Your department has to balance its books like any other.

Then you try again fob me off by saying an Appointed Person is appointed by the JAC, yet their website only deals with JUDGES. But so what, even they do 'Appoint Barristers' to be Appointed Persons' it is obvious that they are not actually EMPLOYING them!! Similarly the next fob off you try on,  namely the JCIO, as they only deal with complaints about JUDGES and Hobbs was not acting as a JUDGE in that Instance. He should just have been running an Appeal Hearing but an Appeal Hearing was never heard and it was only a MEETING of the appellant + the IPO (who should not even have been there and Hobbs there as an alleged AP, all dressed up as a bone-fide Appeal Hearing, but was nothing more than a bogus hearing.

Lastly, just what position do you hold as this seems to be a secret ( YOU COULD BE ONLY THE TEABOY) This is a serious matter that I am determined WILL NOT REST.  I wish it to be now dealt with by your Boss one Emma Robinson. I see from your letter heading that your department is called Companies, Land Registry and Property Team. Just how does such a department be ABLE TO DEAL WITH SUCH SERIOUS MATTERS AS ONE OF GLD's EMPLOYEE ACTING UNLAWFULLY AND CRIMINALLY AND PERVERTING THE COURSE OF JUSTICE. THIS NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH BY AN 'APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENT TO DO WITH CRIMINAL MATTERS'.

P.S You couldn't even comply with your own replying standards and get a reply sent to me within your time limits.

K.Cook.

Dear Mr Cook
I refer to your e-mail of the 16 March 2019, addressed to Mr Walker.  I am replying as Mr Walkers line manager and the leader of the GLD team in which Mr Walker is employed.
The nature of your original letter is unusual and as has been noted, your complaint is regarding the conduct of an Appeal by Mr Hobbs QC between 2004 and 2007.   I reiterate what Mr Walker said in his earlier correspondence, ie  that a barrister sitting as an Appointed Person is not employed by this office in any capacity.    How the Appeal is conducted, whether by hearing or other determination, is a matter for the Appointed Person.
Although it is not clear, you appear despite this explanation to believe that Mr Hobbs QC is or was an
employee of GLD. He is not, and never was.
You papers have been returned and Mr Walker has set out the route that you would need to follow if you wish to make a complaint regarding the conduct of the Appeal to the Appointed Person.  This office is not in a position to assist you further or make any other comment on the issues that you have raised.

Sent: 18 March 201914:02 To: Stephen Brown Subject: Re: Z19/KJW/A5
Thank you for your reply.

Even though you appear to wish to obfuscate about this,  I am asking you to be more open as to the EXACT situation re A/P's. You are not making clear why it is that you supply A/P's to the lP0 and you do.  Is it too much for you to explain this apparent anonomoly? Are you being disingenous when you say Hobbs was never an employee of the GLD, I because he NOW does not work tr you. Also as you obviously supply Barristers as AIP's how come they are not employees of the OLD? Vvho pays them? Or do you do this service for free and they also never get paid when the sit in as A/P's.   Hobbs who clearly came from the T/Sol at that time, how is it he was not employed (if that is what you are saying) by the T/Sol either?
I could if you are going to be awkward, ask you again thro' a FOIAct request.
You do not seem to see, that failing to be open and helpful you open yourself to one becoming very suspiscous.  Seeing as the justice system has form for covering things up, Finally please explain why my request is unusual and what do you mean when you say it has been noted? I mean that sounds rather ominous likerdo you put it in a file of your, of members of the Public who are a nuisance or whatever?
So I would appreciate an answer that is more informative and helpful .... PLEASE.

Dear Mr Cook

I'm sorry if the earlier emails did not make the position clear.
To be absolutely clear:
1.    GLD do not, as you suggest, supply appointed persons to the lPO;
2.    GLD does employ some barristers as part of its work force. However, Mr Hobbs QC has never been employed by GLD. Just because Mr Hobbs is a barrister, it does not follow that he was ever employed by GLD.
3.    Should you wish to make a complaint about Mr Hobbs, the appropriate body is the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office.

Thanks for your further reply.

However what you have said does not match up with the history that I have. You see I have in my records a letter from the Head of the lPO Tribunal Sect dated 177/2009 and Mr James told me that A/P's are appointed by the MOJ. Which trley may have (but I doubt it as he was  an arch liar) but in the hearing in 2006 Hobbs officiated at (the bogus hearing)  he was put forward to do this by the 'Treasury Solidtors' (now GLD) Then later on in my saga I had to also appeal before an A/P and that person was supplied by the T/Sol !!!!! and I have letters to prove that. After that I myself had to appeal a dodgy decsion by the IPO and I have an email from the IPO telling me if I wanted to put in further evidence I should send it to the A/P at the T/Sol  !!!
On top of all that when I saw the criminal actions of Hobbs in the transcript I complained first to the lpo and predictably got nowhere and they directed me to the T/Sol complaints proceures, which I did in 2009 and again all I got was a pack of lies etc.  I have all the letters to do with that.  Recently I asked the lpo who they now got A/P's from and they emailed me that it was to you-the GLD!!!
Now maybe Mr Brown, you can see why I am somewhat confused by your remarks and the history of obfuscations and outright lies over the whole history since that Hobbs meeting/Appeal (Bogus) means  I TRUST NO ONE in the British Justice System. All I see again and again is lies and denials and efforts to pass the buck and deny everything.
So maybe you would like in some small way to correct that sordid history and EXPLAIN T0 ME IN DETAIL JUST WHO SUPPLIES AP'S TO THE IPO NOW AND WHO THOSE A/P'S ARE PAID/EMPLOYED BY WHO ?? Especially as 10 years ago the T/Sol did-now you-and I see that you still call yourselves the Treasury Solicitors.
Also is Hobbs still supplied, by whoever, as an A/P maybe you will still deny all knowledge of him, but maybe you will know who he works for now, if not for the GLD (You obviously know who he is as he is the top IP Barrister and Judge in the UK)

DOC 9 - MY LETTER RAISING A FORMAL COMPLAINT TO THE GLD CEO.


Jonathon Jones, CEO Government Legal Department, 1, Kemble St, London, WC2B 4TS.

25/3/19.

Dear Mr Jones,

FORMAL COMPLAINT THAT MY REQUESTS FOR ANSWERS ARE BEING FOBBED OFF BY A STEPHEN BROWN OF YOUR GENERAL LAW LITIGATION DPT AND BEING LIED TO WHOLESALE .

I am having to send you this complaint and that is if you ever actually get to read it and it's not high-jacked by one of your minions whose specific job is to waylay such letters as this from you  ! ! !---because one of your departments is treating me in the exact same way that all civil servants these days seem to think they can treat we peasants in the country, with utter contempt. Presumably because you all think you can easily get away with it. An done because you all think we are thick and will not see it and will not have the ability to sort you all out.

I sincerely hope you read all this and DO NOT PASS IT DOWN T0 SOME SIMILAR MINION OF YOURS, TO AS THEY ALWAYS DO_TRASH IT WITH MORE OBFUSCATIONS AND LIES, JUST T0 BRUSH IT UNDER THE CARPET AS A COVER UP!!

I sent into the GLD a dossier of documents to show that one of your employees, a Barrister called Hobbs, committed criminal acts at an alleged Tribunal Appeal Hearing, at which he officiated as an Appointed Person, supplied by yourselves under the guise of the Treasury Solicitors. (2006) Those acts perverted the course of justice, which ruined my life and for which I have for some time now, been trying to get justice over. Long after the prescribed time limits set for you sending replies, I eventually got the predictable whitewash reply, which even in that, there were just lies made. That document can be seen in my attached documents I am including to prove what I say. It is annotated as DOCUMENT `A'

Walker said that Hobbs was not an employee of the GLD. Now he offers predictably no explanation as to why and exactly it was that the T/Sol provided his services to the Appellant/IPO. Then he says that your complaints procedure was not applicable because of this, but again makes no explanation as to exactly why it isn'L As it is irrefutable that the T/Sol supplied this man and if he was never an employee, anyone with any manners would explain why he wasn't and explain EXACTLY what he was and why the T/Sol were and still are, the vehicle to supply Appointed Persons (A/P's) yet seemingly no one employees these mysterious persons, who seem to work for no one or are paid no wages and if they work for wages who pays them? And who pays them are then,- their employers I ! ! I wasn't in business for 50+ years to know nowt ! !

I have some 30 plus years of trying to deal with civil servants, so I know only too well what they get up to and lying to get out of answering for their incompetence and corrupt actions, together with even actions that break the law is appallingly par for the course ! !  Lying is what goes on in order to brush it all under the carpet and I know I am dead right, as only two days ago I read in a national newspaper an article by a still serving civil servant, who exposed what civil servants get up to and
how they treat the public with utter contempt etc,etc.Well as I've said I have had first hand experience of all that and this is just the latest episode. hand
DOCUMENT 1. This is my reply to that fob off and needs no further explanations.
DOCUMENT 2. I then got a reply from a Stephen Brown, where he carries on the obfuscations you people are experts at. If ALL civil servants in this country were as good at running their departments and the country as they are at lying etc, this country would not be the basket case it is, which we all know it is, thanks to the Walkers et al, of the civil service.
DOCUMENT 3. Is my reply and perfectly reasonable request for explanations.
DOCUMENT 4. His reply which shows he is now exasperated, but he doesn't give me the explanations I asked for. How rude is that and no question I posed is EVER answered?  AND he blatantly lies when he says the GLD does not supply AIP's to the IPO (See doc 7 which PROVES he is a liar)
DOCUMENT 5. I now sent him another email which true to form he ignores-hence this F/C to you. This because; are you aware that people under you are behaving like this?? Maybe you do and it's with your blessing and directions to do so ??
DOCUMENT 6. This shows how the department you are responsible for, indulges in blatant lying. DOCUMENT 7. This proves you are LIARS.
DOCUMENT 8. Shows that in 2009 the T/Sol were an arm of the MOJ (at least from my recollection of what in 2009 they said on their website about being so and from what James told me) DOCUMENT 9. Shows how I was told to go TO THE T/SOL, re me wishing to appeal another later and dodgy IPO decision ! !
DOCUMENT 10. Shows me going to the T/Sol to complain about Hobbs. DOCUMENT 11. This AGAIN shows the implications of the T/Sol in A/P's, re appeals.
DOCUMENTS 8/9/10/ AND 11 ALL RELATE TO WHAT I SAID IN DOC 5.

So you see Mr Jones, the evidence I show, proves the lies I have been fed from from your lot. All this concerns the criminal actions of a person, put forward by yourselves who you deny that being so, but without a shred of evidence, that Hobbs was not employed by you or the T/SOL. No doubt one of your excuses will be, that it is not a matter for the T/Sol/GLD re what employees or others used by you, get up to, even if they are criminal and unlawful. Given who the GLD are, I would have thought that is just one more big lie. For you are the very department that is responsible as you boast on your website, that you have a "core purpose to help the government to govern well and within the rule of law."

Yet apparently you are simply not interested when someone closely working for yourselves acts unlawfully and that leads to committing criminal offences by perverting the course of Justice !! (AND this that I allege, is backed up by the opinion of a very experienced crininal Barrister, not involved with governlnent.  AIL you and your workers can do is try to fob me off with obfuscations and outright Hes ......... HOW DISGUSTING IS THAT.' ???

Even if you could show how this Hobbs bloke and all the other AP's are not employed by yourselves etc, you should at least when matters like this are brought to your attention, is act upon this and see judicial actions are started against the person concerned after a thorough INVESTIGATION and seeing the EVIDENCE. Or telling me how I can get JUSTICE without me having to pay to do that. And not give me a load of guff that means in real life, isn't worth a light and are roads I went down years ago, to only receive the same old fob offs and lies. It is simply the old boy network at work AGAIN, in that all you Establishment Justice Johnnies, all stick together to protect each other and KEEP THE RUDDY BAYING PEASANTS AT BAY
If I had the money I would have taken this bastard to the High Court in 2007, but having had my business ruined by him and other civil servants, they knew I had no money to do that. You had better pray I don't win the lottery ! ! Because criminal acts have no time limit. My Father was a Colonial Police Inspector on CID for 15 years, his Father and brother both in the UK Police and I was in the RAF Police. So I'm not that ignorant on the law and being a Marine and Auto engineer since the RAF, with my own businesses since 1965,  I am no fool either and VERY meticulous. So you should chew on all that and the only way you are going to get rid of me is to send a hit squad around to bump me off . Because up to now I am in very good health and this will go on until I DIE ! !  !
I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT LIES AND EXCUSES YOU COME UP WITH AND I IF YOU DO NOTHING, I CAN FEEL IN MY WATER, A DEDICATED BLOG COMING UP --DEDICATED TO THE THE CORRUPT WAYS OF THE GLD ETC. AS IT IS, ALL THE CORRESPONDENCE ANI) FACTS ARE APPEARING AS WE GO ALONG, ON MY GENERAL BLOG ON CORRUPT CIVIL SERVANTS.


Yours Truly,
Ken Cook,

DOC 10. - THE SHORT REPLY FROM A FELLOW QC TO HOBBS-SO NO WONDER WHY HE WILL NOT DO A THING AGAINST 'ONE OF THE LADS' !! JUDGING BY HIS LETTER HEADING, HE WILL BE FULL OF HIMSELF. !!

Formal Complaint about Mr Hobbs QC

I  am writing  in  response to your letter dated 25 March 2019.    I  note that you wish to complain about Mr Hobbs QC.

You appear to believe that Mr Hobbs QC is or was an employee of GLD,  or that GLD are  or were  responsible  for  `supplying'  Appointed  Persons  to  the  IPO.    As  both  Mr Walker and Mr Brown have explained to you, this is not correct.   There is therefore no basis for your complaint against GLD.

If you remain unhappy about the handling of your complaint, you may wish to consider an approach to the Pariiamentary Commissioner for Administration (the Ombudsman) who  investigates  complaints   made   by  members  of  the   public  about  government departments  and  other  public  bodies.     To  do  this,   you  will   need  to  make  your complaint in writing to an  MP who can refer it to the Ombudsman,  with your consent, with a request that an investigation be conducted.

JONATHAN JONES

******For those of you who are Eagle Eyed, you may notice that JJ deliberately ignored and/or refused to reply to the following questions I asked him:- ******

1. No apology for all the excuses and lies put out by his employees/staff.

2. No explanations to the questions I asked re: Why Hobbs was/is, not an employee of the
    GLD/T/Sol?

3. Why does the GLD offer A/P's to the IPO if they are not employees of the GLD?

3.  Who actually does employ A/P's and pay them?

4. Why did he ignore all 11 documents I sent in to back all that I was saying/alleging,
    let alone answering or even denying what I was saying/showing?

5. Why was it that he did not out of respect and curtesy, tell me what law department would deal
    with the actions of Hobbs QC, given that his employees fed me eroneous info on this ?

BY ACTING THE WAY HE DID AS THE CEO OF ONE OF THE UK'S MOST IMPORTANAT LAW DEPARTMENTS, HE SURELY DID NOT COVER HIMSELF IN GLORY OR SHOW THAT THE GLD IS A TOP RUN DEPARTMENT THAT TREATS ANY MEMEBER OF THE UK PUBLIC WITH RESPECT.
