Law Society's 'Old Boys Network'
does it start and where does it end??
Well we know it starts in the High Street where the Senior Partners protect their own.
Were does it end! It doesn't.
So let me start at the top and work back.
Hon Lord Justice Anthony Clark. Master
of the Rolls.
most people know the Law Society makes its own rules with the concurrence
of the Master of the Rolls, so you would think the Master of the Rolls
would have some interest in seeing that these rules which he is involved
in making would be 'enforced' just as that hypocrite 'Zahida
Manzoor' stood up in Parliament blather mouthing she was going
to 'enforce' (Q20 well worth a read),
but no, he is a 'Fully Paid-up Member of the Protection Team'
and could not care less that the CCS, the LSO and law firms violate
the rules to the detriment of anyone who dares to complain about this
'Noble Upstanding Honest Profession'. Yeah
is it Surgeons say about the legal fraternity? Oh yes, "they
are the easiest to operate on for they have no hearts and their heads
n' arses are interchangeable".
talks about having everything out in the open, you know, like that
'hypocrite' Zahida Manzoor who talks about 'fairness' and 'transparency'.
'Woolfie' talks about being 'open' and giving
rights to people who the Government/Police forces consider to be terrorists
and a threat to this country's safety, yet on the other hand when
a member of his 'clan' (Judge Roger Davies)
who it was reported was doing a bit of 'shirt lifting' with some young
male prostitutes and of whom a 'high ranking lawyer' said "he
should have been sacked", then after retired judge
Sir Michael Turner was paid to carry out an inquiry the judiciary
did a 'hush hush' deal with 'Shirt Lifting Roger' who was then
paid to do his garden for a year (£90,000+), given £1,000,000.00
pension deal then 'Woolfie' and 'Chuckling Charlie'
decided the investigation would not be concluded. This is not just
a 'one-off', as few months previous to this, Judge
David Selwood, who was convicted of child porn offences, was also
Abraham the Parliamentary Ombudsman.
Ann Abraham was the previous Legal Services
Ombudsman (nod nod wink wink) so despite her 'remit' that states she
can look at the 'Legal Services Complaints
Commission' she states she cannot intervene. Confused?? Click
to read: - 'Definition
of maladministration by Sir William Reid'.
I suppose I should quote Lord 'Chuckling Charlie' Falconer
"a complainant is somebody who doesn't
quite understand the procedure, therefore must be wrong".
Richard' (Richard Thomas) the Information Commissioner.
Richard said that despite the Data Protection Acts and the Law Society's
Data Protection Notice any information contained by Lawyers and/or
the Law Society can be 'blather mouthed' over the telephone to anyone
who say they are Lawyers and if the Data Protection Acts are violated
all he can do is ask that they don't do it again. Yeah
Right I love you too.
King Richard's advise if you don't like the way that
your complaint is dealt with: - "...you
may wish to consider complaining to the Parliamentary Ombudsman..."
Does it work??
I tried through my MP
and e-mails (1) (2)
'Chuckling Charlie' Falconer
the (Ex) Lord Chancellor. --- (Charlie
has been 'Sacked')
Here to read some of 'Chuckling Charlie's'
quotes and he will tell you there are a 'Set of Enforceable Rules'
that all Data Controllers must comply with. If you ask 'Charlie'
how to get those 'Set of Enforceable Rules' "Enforced"
he tells you 'Take us to the High Court'. OK 'Charlie' we get
CHARLIE; Glib, disingenuous and ruthlessly ambitious, Lord Falconer
(he of the Dome and legalised gay sex in public toilets) is now destroying
our judiciary's independence. His qualification? He was once Tony
Blair's landlord . . . Click Here

Martin (at the time) Deputy Vice-president of the Law Society.
wrote to Kevin Martin in Aug '03 thinking
he was the Chair of the Compliance Board, he passed my letter on but
I again wrote to him in Sept '03 as
it appeared the Chair of the Compliance Board had disappeared. Kevin
wrote back to assure me "The new Chair
of the Compliance Board has certainly not disappeared".
Thank you Kevin. As Kevin Martin
read the afore mentioned letters before passing them on to 'Dickie
the Chair' he would clearly know the problem so is obviously
a part of the 'Protection Team' and
no doubt advised 'Dickie'
to be aggressive'.
the Chair' Richard Hegarty, Chair of the Compliance Board.
WHOOPS, I mean 'Dickie'
came out fighting, he first of all called me a "disgruntled
complainant" then rang me at home during the evening
and tried intimidation which 'King Richard'
and Aman Virk at the CCS
said he was conducting Law Society business
at the time.
moral here is don't upset the Law Society or they will call in 'Mikie'
WHOOPS I meant to say 'Dickie
the Chair'. Richard Hegarty &
Co have their own 'Clients
Charter' (which he as
now tampered with a little...lol) so if 'Dickie'
thinks it OK for solicitors to ignore the Law Society's
'Clients Charter' just what chance is
there of him honouring his own????

wrote to Peter Williamson who didn't
reply but eventually got the Law Society's Chief Executive to write
Paraskeva the Law Society's Chief Executive.
stupid woman must be straight out of 'Whacko
Jacko's Neverland' I asked about the 'Client
Care Agreement' and although she headed it that way she
didn't even mention Client Care but told me what I already
knew, how my complaint was handled by the CCS and the LSO and its
outcome. Click Here to read her letter and
click Here to read my reply that she
ignored. She concludes her letter with "I
am sorry that we are not able to assist you further",
clearly showing that she and Peter Williamson are fully paid-up members
of the 'Protection Team'.
me add some comments by this stupid woman: -
are determined to root out bad practice and ensure that clients get
the high quality service they deserve". - "It rests on a
belief that self-regulation is a privilege that has to be earned,
not a right to which we are entitled". - "We want to encourage
solicitors to focus more on addressing their client's concerns".
- "But being tougher on ourselves is the best way to maintain
the public's trust in solicitors."
I don't know what world she lives in but it
most definitely is not the same one the 'Complainants' come from.
Paraskeva born 1946 in Newport, Monmouthshire is an Welsh-Greek-Cypriot
from the United Kingdom. She is a British administrator who was appointed
as the First Civil Service Commissioner on January 1, 2006. Paraskeva
has also been a strong advocate for gay and lesbian rights in the
United Kingdom. She intends to take advantage of the Civil Partnerships
Act to 'marry' her partner of more than a decade, whom she will only
refer to as 'Mary'. She prefers not to give Mary's surname and will
only say that 'she works in education'. Paraskeva has two children
from a previous marriage. I was in Cyprus in
the 'Fifties' and Col. Greavas was at that time a Greek-Cypriot
Terrorist, an enemy of the British. Does anything change?? See top

Paraskeva appointed First Civil Service Commissioner'.
Paraskeva is, despite her £297'000.00 including a
generous £72,000 in pension contributions. Ms Paraskeva
was also awarded a healthy £28,000 bonus, though what
exactly this was for is anyone's guess.
Also Janet Paskareva bags 20k for 15 days work with anti-mafia
unit. Law Society chief executive Janet Paraskeva has been appointed
as a non-executive director of the Serious Organised Crime Agency
(SOCA) - a post that will net her £20,000 a year for
15 days work. President Kevin Martin said that it would not diminish
her commitment to the Law Society. The news comes a month after The
Lawyer exclusively revealed that Paraskeva had been appointed as a
shadow member of the board of the Consumer Council for Water, which
will occupy two days a month plus another £7,000. The
job will suit her well has 'champion of sewerage consumers', when
they issue her with a 'King size Shovel' it will allow her to shovel
'shit' as well has herself and ZM talking it: -

first job that she should be looking at is the Law Society's

by the LSO.

Anthony Higgins QC
Anthony Higgins conducted my litigation in court I asked him to give
an opinion on Thos Boyd Whyte's (TBW) handling of my affairs. At a
meeting with him prior to going to Court I asked him for his 'opinion
on Thos Boyd Whyte
he thought for a while
then said "in
my opinion they were 'negligent' and 'incompetent'". When
I received his report it was clearly a defence for TBW based on lies
by them which I pointed out by supplying actual evidence and now the
'negligence' and 'incompetence' he had stated by them
was not mentioned. However if I wanted him to re-look at his report
he wanted me to pay him once again which I refused. I made a complaint
to the Bar Council who as you would guess defended him, I then made
a referral to the Legal Services Ombudsman who at the time was Ann
Abraham the present Parliamentary Ombudsman. Also it would appear
Anthony Higgins QC violated the 'Confidentiality'
rule by informing the CCS I was seeking legal advice from him, click
Here to read the first
letter I received from the CCS in 18 months (underlined in yellow).
to read how Mr Higgins whelched on an agreement he made for an arranged
meeting he didn't turn up for.
Abraham (at the time the Legal
Services Ombudsman) (see above is now
the current Parliamentary Ombudsman).
Abraham stated she noted there were 'inaccuracies' in Anthony Higgins
QC's opinion report and brought into question the reliability of the
rest of his opinion (exactly what my complaint
was about) but she decided to take no action. Thank
you very much Ann Abraham, you gave Tony Higgins almost a £1,000
($2,000us) of my money to give an 'opinion' that was not 'Fit for
Purpose'! As we know 'Leopards don't change their spots'
so it was only to be expected when she progressed to be the Parliamentary
she would stay loyal to the 'Protection Team'.
Anthony Higgins QC's unreliable
'Opinion Report' effectively stopped me from suing TBW for
'negligence' which was 'Game Set and Match' to TBW and the Law Society.
'Gold Medal award to Ann Abraham'!
Noble Ethics Committee are the most committed to the lawyers 'protection
team', they encourage solicitors to violate the Law Society's 'Data
Protection Notice' so as to supply them with information so they can
then advise there is a 'Conflict of Interests' and the client should
be sacked. Click Here to read their

Manzoor Legal Services Ombudsman/Legal Services
Office of the Legal Services Ombudsman has been attacked by the leading
civil service union for its "flawed" recruitment practices
and management techniques. The Public and Commercial Services (PCS)
union has voiced concern that the office's performance is being undermined
by the outsourcing of key work and the failure to recruit more staff.
The PCS claimed there has been a 40% turnover in case workers since
Manzoor took up her position and that morale of employees had
hit rock bottom.
Vincent, PCS branch secretary, said: "We [the union] are gravely
concerned about the negative impact that flawed recruitment practices
and dubious outsourcing is having on the performance [of the office]."
said crucial posts had gone unfilled for months and the legal ombudsman
failed to consult with the union before outsourcing casework to private
company, Safecall. It is understood that the Department for Constitutional
Affairs (DCA), which oversees the legal ombudsman's office, has expressed
PCS is urging the DCA to intervene and talk to the union. You
would think the PCS
would know that ZM has got her head and shoulders so far up
'Chuckling Charlie' Falconer's
arsehole she is now 'Teflon Coated'. Yuck!!
Here to read a letter that clearly
shows the lengths the Legal Services Ombudsman
will, despite that she is supposedly independent of the Law Society,
go to to defend the Consumers Complaints
Service and members of the Law
letter I sent to
that shows she 'Conspired'
with the Law Society to 'protect Dickie the Chair'
have to wonder if Zahida Manzoor has all her 'Marbles'
she stated in her 'report' that the CCS should
provide a specific piece of information, also the law states that
all "available information" should be "available"
to all parties and it was also requested under the 'Freedom of Information
Acts'. The Law Society say they are 'exempt'
from the 'Freedom of Information Acts' (so one would assume they
are above 'the law') they don't have to and won't supply this "available
information". We then go back to Zahida Manzoor who previously
stated the defendant should "be requested to provided"
this information by the CCS. Ol' ZM now accuses the
complainant, at the fourth time of making it, of a "serious
allegation" and now ZM 'clams-up', no answers are
given to the complainant's questions and the criticism in her report
are not complied with and now ignored by her. Game
Set and Match to the Law Society! As
I previously stated to ZM
the 'Referee', in this game, just happens to be the 'Team
Manager' for the 'Law Society's CCS F C'.
Complaints Service (This
body of people have had many names in the
past, but nothing changes except the name).
Here to read a letter I sent to Ms
Alison Crawley, Director of Regulation Complianceinsane,
that shows the insane lengths the Consumers
Complaints Service has gone to to protect Dickie
the Chair. For instance Zahida
Manzoor the CCS and
'Dickie' (The Chair of the Law
Society's Compliance Board) will conspire on the outcome and when
you ask questions the CCS will
tell you "the
Law Society is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act"
and they don't and won't tell you anything. Second to that 'King
Richard' the Information Commissioner will tell you if
and when the Law Society breach
the Data Protection Acts all he
can do is ask them each time 'not to do it again'. Yeah
Right, that makes us feel safe. If
you ever make a complaint against your solicitors you had better believe
you are up against a 'Cast Iron Protection
Team' (the LSO and
the CCS with the backing of all
those named on this page).
Luckhurst Senior Partner at Thos Boyd Whyte Solicitors in Bexleyheath,
my Solicitor, Sandra Durant, resigned Gordon Luckhurst gave conduct
of my litigation to a young inexperienced new raw recruit, Assistant
Solicitor, to TBW who had no skills in litigation. She called me in
for a meeting on 6 June 2000, the strange thing there was a second
Solicitor there to act as a witness, I wonder why? If you read the
'Attendance Note' she wrote concerning that
meeting it will be seen I am very angry and a suggestion of Thos Boyd
Whyte being 'negligent' is made by her. My new young Assistant Solicitor
was possible aware prior to the meeting, from my file, that I had
sent a complaint to the CCS 14 months previously that was still waiting
an investigation and after that meeting what did she do? First she
had a discussion with Gordon Luckhurst the Senior Partner and Geoff
Smith, the Senior Litigation Solicitor, then she rang the Ethics Committee
for advice and it would appear the Ethics Committee told her to contact
the CCS and find out if at the very lease a complaints file existed,
which a Mr Fise at the CCS duly "recalled" (a violation
of the Law Society's 'Data Protection Notice'). My Assistant Solicitor
then again 'phoned the Ethics Committee with the information she had
collected and based solely on what she told the Ethics Committee (over
the telephone) she was advised that a 'Conflict of Interests' exists
and the client should be sacked which was duly carried out the next
day (8 June). You have to remember I was sacked for daring to ask
to discuss my dissatisfactions with the Senior Partner after following
the Law Society's advice to send a complaint to the CCS because Gordon
Luckhurst, Senior Partner at Thos Boyd Whyte, had refused my three
request for him to hear my complaint, which under Solicitors Practice
Rule 15 he must comply, failing to comply he was guilty of 'Professional
Misconduct'. Unlucky for me he had Zahida
Manzoor (LSO) and the
Law Society Protection Team (CCS)
The Noble Ethics Committee, the CCS, Gordon
Luckhurst, Geoff Smith and my new Assistant Solicitor get the
CROSS' for bravery in the face
of the enemy (One minor insignificant solicitor's client). Zahida
Manzoor should be awarded the 'Victoria
Cross' for her valour
"in the face of the enemy" and 'Military
Precision' in guiding the CCS
to their victories over Solicitors' Complaining
felt sorry for Sandra for after the previous two solicitors (Irene
Long and Margaret Dunton) had made such a mess of my litigation it
was pushed on to her by Margaret Dunton. Sandra wrote in an 'Attendance
Note' that she didn't think I had been treated properly by her
predecessors and she ended up resigning. Also in this 'Attendance
Note' it appears Gordon Luckhurst admits I would be entitled to have
my costs refunded!!!
