Subject: Fwd: PROOFREAD In Honour of strong women manuscript.

Hi there.

As already highlighted, this was a challenging piece of work.  I initially tried to disengage with the content because of the concerns around the nature of some of it.  I still think that M needs to reconsider making EVERYTHING here public. Calling people bitc#{$ and bast@£&$ is probably not a great idea!  The list of names, as we have mentioned before, is concerning…especially, re: repercussions.

Page 3, the Foreword is presented before the content page…

The referencing to other sources, throughout is inconsistent and as this is not an academic piece of work, I have not tampered with, or focused upon this.  However, there were some uncertainties, see page 35, reference at end of the second paragraph.

Was unsure of the word ‘Ledgister’, which was also written as ‘Legister’ elsewhere, this needs to be attended to (e.g.: third and fourth paragraph of page 35).

I was unsure of the meaning on page 37, of the heading that includes the words ‘Progressive Conditions Driven’.

Page 231 states that the introduction is still needed.

I have kept some of the contractions…to suit tone but have also changed many.  I also kept some of the sentences beginning with ‘But’ and ‘And’, in line with a creative license but again, have also changed many.

I have corrected letters and articles, etc but was also aware that these were written as they were at the time BUT following your earlier advice, corrected them.

Overall, the content page does not fully reflect the main body content.

There is also the factor of tense.  Some of the book is written reflectively (in and on experiences), some retrospectively, and some in the current tense.  I have done my best to give it some consistency, without changing its intention.

Similarly, the content is a mix of words in capital letters, words using first letter capital, bold, etc and given the limited contact with the author, I have maintained most of it but tried to make it consistent at least.  My impression was that capital letters were intentional in most cases and there is still a sense of it not being wholly consistent.

In the instance of sayings, I have kept the language as intended.

Where age is presented, or the number of years, there is a pattern of using both numbers and words, again….without the input from the author, I have not changed this, just improved upon it.

I am not sure that the book needs notes pages.

I feel that this book has much potential and M has an engaging style of writing and a wonderful story, which is evident on later pages, especially 204 onwards, related to the value of creative writing and resilience.

I feel that if this was edited to new headings, incorporating existing content and each starting with one of the ‘sayings’ she remembers her parents and grandparents using, as creatively illustrative points, for example:

A background section – The girl behind the woman – using M’s reflections of growing up in Jamaica (I love the term ‘West-More-Light’ and as my dad was from that area too, it resonated).

A section on mental health.

A section on the role of professional developments and barriers to achievement.

A section on the impact of toxic environments.

A section on discrimination in the workplace.

A section on being silenced.

A section on resilience and the importance of voice.

This would mean shaving off some of the content and repurposing the most powerful reflections and experiences.  I think this would result in a powerful book that empowers others.

I know we are at the place we are with M but I think it is my obligation to feedback fully and for her to know that she has received a full service.

Reading her story, even from a forced distance, I feel sad that

  1. a) she has experienced what she has in the working life and
  2. b) that the situation became what it did with Peaches Publications.

Hope all is well.

Take care

Jo 🙂

27th December 2016

Dear Mr. Fenton

I would like clarifications about some of the burning issues concerning the Employment Tribunal Mrs. Mervelee Myers v London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) Case Number: 2300047/2016 at Croydon adjourned to 28th February – 3rd March 2017. Without Prejudice, it seems you have been giving inaccurate, misleading, and erroneous information to the Complainant and the Employment Tribunal since the time when you introduced yourself via email as the Respondent’s defense on the 9th March 2016. I am concerned about the unprofessional approach you have taken about your professional status to represent and be the Respondent’s defense in this matter.

On reflections and after discussions with my stepson Trevor Tomlinson we have come to unanimous decisions about the reasons for the events unfolding after the Judge’s verdict that the case would not be struck out on the 20th December 2016. Thereafter the Barrister, Ms. Jones complained of not feeling well. Out in the corridor, she asked Trevor if he has Legal Training, so it’s quite obvious the reason for her questioning. On the 21st December 2016, the case was adjourned because she sent messages to the Clerk of the Courts that she had a Contagious Illness from the day before and her Doctor quarantined her not to leave her home for forty eight (48) hours.

Without Prejudice, my work with children and the elderly prepared me for my duty of care that everyone is responsible for safeguarding children, young people, and vulnerable adults. Owing to the fact that I have disabilities, I think Ms. Jones’ irresponsibility might have exposed me to the possibilities of putting my health at risk of picking up and being affected by the contagious illness. Therefore might I now suggest that this was Ms. Jones’s way of buying time to repair the damages the Respondent made by refusing to adhere to due processes. Also the Non-Compliances of Judge Baron’s Court Orders on the 15th March 2016 and Judge Elliott’s Court Orders on the 8th June 2016.

It has been documented that from our initial meeting on the 15th March 2016, the Respondent’s intention was to get the claims struck out, without adhering to the Employment Tribunals Notes and Orders. It is obvious this carried on up to the 20th December 2016 when the Respondent bring Ms. Jones a Barrister to court without preparing the case. Yet Ms Jones was there putting her demands that have proven how the Respondent was trying to pervert the course of justice with the breaches of the Rules of Law.

Without Prejudice, the Barrister Ms. Jones has become a party to knowingly supporting Modern Day Slavery to occur in the Respondent’s workplaces.  It is said that “Slavery and Human Trafficking can occur in many forms including related forms of workplace abuse.” If in any doubt, please have a thorough read through the Complainant and Respondent BUNDLES. Maybe that’s why Barrister Ms. Jones did not want to admit my BUNDLE into evidence and asked for me not to question the witnesses.

It is more than evident that the primary aim of the Respondent in getting the Employment Tribunal Judges to lift the OATH is so that the Respondent can get you to consult with me. The consultations were specifically for reasons you keep hidden until the last moment. The lifting of the OATH was to benefit the Respondent and yourself in a few ways. The first was so you could get the court to gag me, to stop my Fight4justice campaign on Social Media. The second was that I could not continue to expose yours and the Respondent’s Gross Professional Misconducts from the 23rd July 2014 to date at the Employment Tribunals on the 21st December 2016.

Now it’s my turn to ensure that the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 is read, understood, and implemented by the Respondent and other employers. The Respondent’s Barrister, Ms. Jones in continuing the discrimination started at BIB, HOC, and New Cross were prepared to perjury herself in court as she lied about the case that she knows absolutely nothing about. She admitted that she was not prepared, but who can blame her when the whole sorry episode proves what I have been saying all along. The Respondent changed from the organisation I joined on the 1st September 2009, to the one that is prepared to breach every Rules of Law.

The Respondent’s Gross Misconduct throughout led to me having to take my case to Social Media and the Employment Tribunal. There are evidence in the Complainant and Respondent BUNDLES, Witness Statements, etc. showing how the Establishment and Systems have been conspiring and colluding to destroy my career and life. Ms. Jones came into court without preparation of the case with the intention of getting the case strikeout. But what did she based her findings on, and was she misled by Mr. John Fenton about his professional status as a Solicitor who was competent to carry out the roles of a Solicitor or Lawyer?

Now that you have used underhand tactics to consult with me to get me to give up my rights, offering me £3, 00.00 of the £4, 00.00 Commercial Settlement because the cost is rising. Whose fault is it that the Respondent is in such a predicament? I offered to go to mediation via ACAS as well as getting the former Luton Street manager Julie Weiss and colleagues who know me from I started with the Respondent in 2009 involved. Now that you realise that you are in big trouble, then you quickly get the information in that you are not a Solicitor and you never told anyone that you are. I have to come to the conclusion that the Barrister gave you the dictates to take back to the Judges and myself, hence the reasons you are so concerned about costs.

Well you can be prepared from now to pay her cost because if she is not prepared to retract her statements made in court about me, I will make sure she is brought to book for Gross Professional Misconduct in the courts with the Judges as witnesses. The same way she was so intent on getting my claims to strike out, without any of the facts at her disposals already documented in the Complainant’s and Respondent’s BUNDLES. This is the same way she has to take responsibility and be accountable for the breaches in the Respondent’s Contract Sections 1 -33. Yet there is even more evidence of how the Respondent decided to breach International Laws, Home Country Legislation, and Codes of Practices and Conducts because they have been taking me for an idiot. 

The Respondent have been using my qualifications, expertise, and CPPDP, in building the Organisation as a model. But that did not stop them abusing their power of authority and treating me like a Modern-Day Slave from I signed the Contract on the 7th October 2009. I am now going to turn the tables on Ms. Jones and report her to the Legal Ombudsman and get her to strike off for Gross Professional Misconduct if she is not prepared to act in the remits of the Rules of Law.  Therefore I am waiting with bated breath for the 28th February to 3rd March 2017.

The following are the chronological orders of meetings and correspondences when information should have been disclosed:

09th March 2015 at 11:35: Email re Agenda introducing Mr. John Fenton as the Respondent’s defense.

Is it possible for Mr Fenton to go back and look at the Agenda For Case Management At Preliminary Hearing to familiarise himself with the answers and queries outlined in the form for future reference, please? I am sure he will find them revealing and enlightening with regards to why the Respondent did not reveal that they were not using the services of a Solicitor, but instead a Human Resources Management masquerading as a Lawyer/Solicitor.  I asked about the Respondent’s first Solicitors that contacted me on the 24th of September 2015. They are Bates Wells & Braithwaite London LLP, 10 Queen Street Place, London EC4R 1BE.

15th March 2015 at 10:00: The first meeting with Mr. Joh Fenton at the Preliminary Hearing with Judge Baron. Mr. John Fenton represented the Respondent as defence on 15.03.2016 & 08.06.2016 without informing the Employment Tribunals and the Complainant that he is not a Solicitor. 

I would like the Respondent to give clear concise explanations why they failed to address the queries raised in Agenda For Case Management At Preliminary Hearing that I submitted to Mr John Fenton on or before the 11th March 2015. After the hearing on 15.03.2015, Mr. Fenton decided we should talk. The talking took place in the presence of my friend Mr. Chester Pinder, a Magistrate. Mr Fenton decided that he was making a Commercial Settlement Offer of One to Two Thousand Pounds (£1-2, 00.00). He said he was making the gesture because he was there to advise me, and he would not be getting anything out of representing the Respondent. I immediately smelled a rat as even I without legal knowledge know that could not be right as there would be a conflict of interests. 

He said he knew I could not deal with the STRESS of going to court. I asked him where he got the information from and if he’d seen my FILE. Mr. Fenton indicated with his hands stating it is this thick. I asked if he had written the Reference when he started quoting from it. When, I protested that because of it, I could not get work, Mr Fenton was defending Senior HR Dilys Epton, because I questioned her professionalism in handling the matter at work. Mr. Fenton claimed he and Senior HR Dilys Epton are friends. Like the Respondent’s, it seems like Mr. Fenton’s organisation is run by cronyism, instead of a Legal Entity?

The only place Mr. Fenton could have got information about my disabilities is from the FILE that was withheld from me before I left Luton Street Community Nursery on the 22nd of July 2014. Despite making attempts to collect it, I was never successful, because of the Respondent’s negligence. I left (LEYF) employment without getting access to my FILE. I already know how unscrupulous Employers, Establishments, Systems, Solicitors, Unions and Colleagues work because this is the second time I am encountering such inappropriate practices. The first experiences of misconduct were by the managers and Human Resources at KINGS.

Then by UNISON, Southwark Council SEND Section, my GP – part of the NHS, the Citizen Advice Bureaux, Legal Advisors, and then left to carry on by myself. This happened only because I embarked on studies to enhance knowledge to empower myself, when I worked at Mapother House Day Nursery – Kings College Hospital NHS Trust. My passion is/was Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) because of my childhood into adulthood of Traumas and having a child who was affected and wrongly diagnosed with disabilities by the professionals.  

The Solicitors Capsticks did exactly what Mr. Fenton has been doing from the time we met, acting unprofessionally, and LYING they did not receive DOCUMENTS I put in the post even when they were registered. Then they made the Settlement of Four Thousand (£4, 00.00) to reach me on the night before the due court date. I just did not have time to read the information, much less deal with it. They keep asking for time because they did not have Solicitors to deal with the case. Like as now I keep asking the Employment Tribunals for support, but none was forthcoming. That’s why I choose to stick with my Defensive Practice as there were three (3) Legal Representatives along with witnesses in 2009-2010.

They ended up buying time because they knew I had no legal training nor knowledge to deal with the case. Like now as then, I have all the documents in my BUNDLE but did not know how to deal with three professionals. That’s why the Respondent will not be allowed to get away this time around, as I am empowering myself to expose them for what they are. Refer to my CPPDP, Social Media, and my Fight4justice campaign. At the end of the Employment Tribunal case, I will launch my new career in ADVOCACY, to give my learned knowledge to anyone who finds themselves in similar circumstances to mine. 

Correspondences:  There is numerous correspondence between the Respondent and myself via emails and letter formats when I address Mr John Fenton as the Respondent’s Solicitor when he had the opportunities to refute the ambiguities of his professional status. Yet Mr Joh Fenton failed to accept his responsibilities to act and be accountable in regards to the due processes of the Rules of Law. These correspondences date from the 09th March 2016 to 19th December 2016.  Now I would like Mr. Fenton to give an explanation for his lapse of memory, the fact he is unable to read and understand, so he could advise the Respondent to prepare the documents for the Employment Tribunal Case on the 20 – 22 December 2016.

The following correspondences should be considered:

11.04.2016: Email Subject: Documents – Mr. Fenton acknowledging Package containing Documents from me. However on the 8th June 2016, Mr. John Fenton lied in the court that he did not receive the BUNDLE. When I produced the printout from the email, he changed to not seeing the 2 Medical Reports in the Bundle.

18.04.2016: Email from ACAS – Respondent’s Settlement Offer.

30.05.2015: Complainant Response to Respondent’s Notes 1- 15 pages.

(1) At no time did Mr. Fenton try to correct the false impressions he gave to me about being the Respondent’s Solicitor.

(2) Please take into account (pp. 1- 15) where I state my case about my intentions of using Social Media with my Fight4justice campaign.

(3) Specifically stated on (p. 10) is the fact that Mr. John Fenton is a Pathological LIAR. My arguments are proven because Mr. Fenton is not a Solicitor and he admitted such on the 21st December 2016 in the presence of Mr. Trevor Tomlinson, Winnie McLeish-Jacques, and Carline Tomlinson-Graham at the Employment Tribunal, Croydon.

I empowered myself doing Research as part of my CPPDP and looked up the meanings of the following: 

Is the Respondent a Legal Entity?

Legal: 1. Established or permitted by law. 2. Relating to law or lawyers.

Entity: Separate distinct thing.

Lawyer: Professionally qualified legal expert.

Solicitor: Lawyer who advises clients and prepares documents and cases.

Barrister: Lawyer qualified to plead in a higher court.

21.08.2016: Letter to Mr John Fenton re Missing BUNDLE from a letter dated 16. 08.2016, by Mr. Fenton – (3 pages). Refer to Dictionary meanings above

05.09.2016: My letter to Mr. John Fenton re Claimant’s Paginated and Index BUNDLE – Omission (3 pages). Refer to Dictionary meanings above

05.09.2016: Email to Mr. John Fenton – Subject: Omission of Court Orders GP Medical Report – Refer to Dictionary meanings above

06.09.2016: Email Mr John Fenton response re Medical Reports – Refer to Dictionary meanings above

23.09.2016: Email Mr. John Fenton re Omission of Court Orders GP Medical Report – Refer to Dictionary meanings above

29.09.2016: Letter from Mr. John Fenton re Claimant’s BUNDLE Index – (10 pages) – Refer to Dictionary meanings above.

Non-Compliance of Judge Elliott’s Court Orders of 8th June 2016:  Mr John Fenton choose to use my Appendix from a Document I sent to him as My Index Pages. He decided to put them in the Chronological Orders that he intend to use to confuse me. That’s why the Barrister was requesting that my BUNDLE should not be used in court. Mr. Fenton had doctored the Appendix from documents submitted to the Respondent to confuse me, so I could not write my Witness Statement and make Reference as per Judge Elliott’s Court Orders of the 8th June 2016. Is this what Mr Fenton called Paginated Chronological Order?

13.12.2016: Email from Mr. John Fenton – Subject: BUNDLES for next week’s hearing.   Refer to Dictionary meanings above. More evidence that the Respondent was unable to comply with Judge Elliott’s Court Orders because he is not a Professional with any of the above Qualifications of Lawyer, Solicitor, and Barrister.

18.12.2016: My Email response to Mr John Fenton re BUNDLES for next week’s hearing. It explicitly questioned Mr John Fenton’s ability to be able to carry out the roles and responsibilities defined in the Dictionary meaning above of: Lawyer, Solicitor and Barrister. I pointed out the Respondent did not comply with the Court Orders.

19.12.2016: Email from Mr John Fenton Subject: BUNDLES for next week’s hearing. Here is evidence of the Respondent showing how they are UNCORPORATIVE, UNPROFESSIONAL, RUDE, CONFRONTATIONAL, INTIMIDATING, AGGRESSIVE, and LACKING EMPATHY. Refer to complaints from BIB: Manager – Lynne Kelly, Deputy Jyoti, Room Leader Benedicte Siewe, Duty Flavia Foddai, and Agency Tolu sent in on the 12th March 2015 after being staged managed by the complainants above. The subsequent Investigation by Isabella Glen was done on the 13th March 2015.

Deputy Manager Jyoti was not in her post for the specified time stated in the Contract Sections 1 -33 and the Duty Manager Induction Programme that I did when I started at Fitzrovia Community Nursery on the 1st September 2009 until I was transferred to Luton Street in April 2010. 

On the matter of the Barrister Ms. Jones    

Well, Ms. Jones introduced herself as (LEYF) Barrister, but saying she was there to advise me, just like Mr. Fenton did at our first meeting. The pattern was a well-established one if I was gullible enough to take the bait. She said the offer was still on the table, but the case would be struck out. Ms. Jones came unprepared because Mr Fenton and the Respondent must have given her the Racial Profiling of me that was given to Rashid Iqbal, Hilda Miller, Neil Best, and others as soon as they joined (LEYF). That’s why Ms. Jones admitted to the courts she did not prepare the case, my witness statement and BUNDLE were packed with lies and I did not comply with the Judge’s Orders, so it was waste of time and money and she did not want me to question the witnesses.

I might ask questions that are irrelevant. Because of the incompetence and unprofessional conduct of the Respondent and Barrister, Ms. Jones in court on the 20th December 2016, the case has been adjourned. This state of affairs is yet another setback in putting this horrible experience behind me and move on with my life. The Barrister must retract her statements of discrimination made in court. Ms. Jones was not prepared for court because Mr. Fenton was not professionally qualified to prepare the documents and case for the courts. It is a proven fact and on records who is lying and trying to pervert the course of justice in front of Learned Witnesses, the three Employment Tribunal Judges on the 20th December 2016.     

Mr. Fenton, you are deluding yourself by saying you are trying to protect the witnesses with your request in court. This is the Respondent trying to cover up how they have been acting unprofessionally, employing you to do the work of the Solicitor knowing you do not have any of the Qualifications and Training referred to in the above Dictionary meanings.  (Refer to Dictionary meanings above).  The Respondent have breached the contract I signed on the 7th October 2009 and all other updated and new Rules of Law.

Now Ms. Jones joined in to pervert the course of justice with more incompetence and lies. All you are doing is trying to keep the world knowing about the Respondent and your part in the discrimination I experienced from 23rd July 2014 to date. The Respondent continues to breach the Rules of Law by not adhering to the UK Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 in the following ways:

Human Rights:

Human Rights in related forms of workplace like what I was exposed to when I transferred from Luton Street to BIB, HOC, and New Cross until I resigned to save my life and that of my husband. We both suffer from multiple disabilities, which impacted on how I was able to carry out normal day to day activities. Since I signed the contract 07.10.2009, the Respondent has not made any commitments to maintaining and improving systems and processes to help ensure that there are no human rights violations related to work practices. Although I brought the two (2) grievances on the 27th May 2015, the Respondent continued to breach their Contract Sections 1 – 33, resulting in us ending at the Employment Tribunals.

Code of Conduct: To my knowledge the Respondent has done nothing to reviewing and updating the Contract’s Policies and Procedures Code of Conduct during my employment. This is the reason for the Respondent swapping quality for quantity, high staff turnover, and situations like coming to the Employment Tribunals to resolve this matter that could have been dealt with amicably. The Respondent refuses to adopt sound labour and employment practices and at all times treating their employees in accordance with applicable laws. The Senior HR Dilys Epton did not know that sending me to an Occupational Health Medical Referral has to do with disabilities legislation

Risks of Slavery and Human Trafficking: The Respondent does not employ rigorous hiring procedures and has not implemented robust employment and other controls to mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in their business operations.

Compliance Procedures and Adherence to LEYF ETHOS, CORE VALUES, and DNA: The Respondent set out to conspire and collude with the Establishments and Systems to Blacklist and Network against me. Because they have friends in high places – I can supply names. No considerations were given to my contributions to making the Respondent’s Organisation a Beacon and World Model from I joined the Organisation on the 01.09.2009 – 27.09.2015.

Witness Statements: Find out how long the seven (7) Witnesses have been working for the Respondent Organisation.

Contract Terms: The Respondent needs to update and review the Contract Sections 1 -33. Please refer to my Grievances of 27th May 2015.

Ongoing Monitoring and Assessment of Operations: Practice Criterion Procedures – Refer to FILE: 2009 – 2015 & CPPDP – Qualifications, Trainings, Experiences, Volunteering, Social Media Profile.    

Assessments and Audits: Refer to Complainant and Respondent BUNDLES.

Grievance Mechanism:  Respondent does not adhere to OFSTED Standards and the EYFS Welfare Requirements. Training: Refer to my FILE, BUNDLES.

Breach of Contract:

Mr. John Fenton acting as Solicitor/Lawyer when he is not qualified to give an overview of how the Respondent have been running their Organisation when they lost sight of the bigger picture and decided to sell out quality for quantity at the expense of dedicated employees like me and scores of others who were forced to resign with no hope of getting a job, because of the REFERENCE we are provided with. Mr John Fenton and the Respondent apply the contingent Provision, Criterion, and Practice written in their Contract to use my VULNERABILITY against me.

The information from my FILE that I was refused access to before I left Luton Street on 22.07.2014 was used for the wrong purposes. The Data Protection and Human Rights Act 1998, the Equality Act 2010, and the Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 were also breached. I doubt very much the Respondent have kept updated with changes in current laws and legislations. Training might have been done as a form of tokenism, but everyone copies from the other the same way information sharing is passed on because the Respondent has friends in high places. 

Mr Fenton this is the only consultations I will be having with you and the Respondent. The Respondent was given all the opportunity they needed to sort this matter amicably as you stated I thought I was unable to deal with the STRESS. This experience enabled and empowered me to find out the reasons for the Childhood Traumas from the age of ten (10) years old. Although I will not be 100 percent the person I was before the traumas, I am a better person and I intend to use my experiences to benefit others. See you in court from the 28th of February to the 3rd of March 2017. After that, the world will be informed about the Corporate PSYCHOPATHS the Respondent Organisation has become.

The End.          

Lest We Forget 7th November 2015

As a child growing up in Jamaica, we always celebrated “POPPY DAY” ON THE 11TH November. And although I do not have much memory of this “Remembrance Sunday was celebrated with much zeal to honour those who fought in the “World Wars” and I guess that’s all I can tell anyone about the history of the celebrations back then. That’s why I am going to continue praising the “power of knowledge” and the impact of me “enhancing knowledge has had on my life” from I came to the UK.   Fast forward to 23 years ago when I first came to the UK and I am telling anyone that my knowledge was so limited that I can claim I was very ignorant. I am big enough to chat my chat about myself and I refuse to take back any of my chats. Because contrary to what some of those “ignorant detractors” would like to make me out to be, I always was the same person I am today and was yesterday.

Therefore I won’t let any of their “negative discourses” cause me to wonder if I am not the genuine person who left Jamaica 23+ years ago to make the most of the opportunities that I was gifted with. So lest I forget where I am coming from, I am going to continue living my life from the values and beliefs that my parents brought me up with and don’t let anyone tells me I am not genuine. Of course I have to accept my faults and failures as the cussing “bad wuds” and all those other things I do to help me be me, the person who I am. As we are about to celebrate another “Remembrance Sunday” and since I have plenty of time on my hands. l think I am entitled to use that time wisely to tell the story of those Jamaican who made valuable contributions to the “World Wars” in their own inimitable fashions.

Now I have to start with the only Jamaican person I knew who fought in the “Battlefields to help secure our Freedom” not to be discriminated against in no shape nor form. Mr. Reziel (and anyone is entitled to correct me if I spelt the name wrong) aka “MASSY WELCH” was the closest person I’ll ever come to know who was directly connected to and involved in the “World Wars” and I learned the information from the TV. Therefore here is the proof that every single thing has been used in life. It is down to us the individual to use whatever media for good and not evil/bad. Knowing how much “my parents revered their family ties” I owe it to my mother’s memory to tell the story as little as I know it, about one of her family not related by blood. Although mama is only related to Mr Welch by way of marriage, she was very proud of her links to every single one no matter their status in life.

So let me clarify that mama prided herself on being the cousin of “Mrs. URA HEWLING-WELCH” and might give me a sign if I don’t let that knowledge be known. Where I come from in Westmoreland Jamaica, everyone was related in some shape or form. Therefore I am taking “bragging rights” to pay homage to mama’s cousin Ms Ura’s husband Massy Welch, who was a colourful character and figure in our “community of Townhead Westmoreland” Jamaica. It would be amiss of me if I did not mention “Caney, Hewling Town” which was the birthplace of mama, and where my sister – Yvonne, mama’s other daughter, and her dad – Claudius were buried. Caney was packed with the history of my parents, family, and who is who in the community.

Before I go any further let me salute mama’s cousin Ms. Ura and Massy Welch’s offspring and hope they approve of my little story? Those that I have to make mention of are Loy aka Patrice Scott, Lennon aka Kirk Tallah Welch, Kim aka Heidi McGann, and Pam from Mother Hinds clan. Now I set out try and do justice to a story that is close to my heart, especially because of what I’ve had to endure at the hands of some “Racist, Bully, Low Life Thugs” this past year. This is even more harrowing for me because all this started not long after coming back from Jamaica where I’d gone to put mama to rest with all my “loved ones who’d gone on before” and others I trusted gave their approvals and joined in to make my life a living hell.

If I never took the final steps to put an end to my suffering, I might not be here now writing this story in memory of those veterans who make such great sacrifices for us to be here today as free people. I just know enough about the World Wars I was supposed to get by in life and back then apart from celebrating “Poppy Day” I doubt very much that it was important for me to learn about the “nitty gritty” of History, Geography or any other subject for that matter because I was not a teacher and probably had a one-track mind. Knowing about the history of the World Wars were not that important to me and many more like me. As long as we wear our Poppy to “celebrate the bravery of those men and women who fought and gave their lives to protect our rights to live in a free society” I’d done my bit.

This was enough for me until another year when the usual fuss was made about important dates in the annals of history and I leave well enough alone. Knowing what I know now I blame the powers that and hold them responsible and accountable for shortchanging us of our education. Because I believe it was downright remiss of them not to have taught us about the feats of the local heroes, living amongst us like Mr. Welch, who played such important roles in shaping the world history. It took me coming here to live in the UK when I was already in my 30’s and watching a programme on TV – Ground Force to identify one of the locals from my community to learn that he was a “War Veteran” who sacrificed his life for Queen and country.

Mr Welch was living in the community where I was born, bred and lived until I immigrated to the UK, yet I knew absolutely about his feats fighting in the World Wars. I believe it was a dying shame and someone done Mr Welch and all of us pupils a great disservice for not documenting his life story as part of the curriculum for us to have learned in school. I was living at 17 Denchworth House, Stockwell, London SW9 OBN which is closer to Brixton. As I recall now the TV was on in the background and I swear I wasn’t watching, but identified the voice and turned to look and saw this tall man I recognised to be Mr. Welch. So I stopped paying attention to the programme. Alan Titchmarsh, Charlie Dimmock, and Tommy Walsh were doing Ground Force from Curphy Place Mandeville Manchester Jamaica.

The Ground Force Team was in Jamaica refurbishing Curphy Place that is home to the “War Veterans and Retired Soldiers” in Jamaica. What struck me about the programme was the subject that Mr Welch was talking about, his fear of lizards and how he was squeamish about the lizards that was not even near him. I was not aware either that Mr. Welch had retired to the Home because I was no longer in Jamaica. And at the time was not taking as many interests in what was going on at home like I am doing now. My information about Mr Welch being a “War Veteran” came about from me watching one of my favourite programmes on the TV. And some organisations in Great Britain were investing in ensuring those who made sacrifices on the behalf of others were duly rewarded when they needed the assistance most.

In the “prime of their life” when some of them were suffering ill health or age was taking its toll on how they were able to fend for themselves, they were provided with the assistance they needed. It was only years later when I got hooked on enhancing knowledge via studies and through my work that I began to learn about the roles played by some of our pioneers like “Mary Seacole” when we celebrate “Black History Month”. That I felt a sense of great loss for some missed opportunities that we were denied as students. I feel we were cheated and short-changed as students in Jamaica, because in God’s name why we were not taught the history about the local heroes like Mr. Welch who lived amongst us in our community. Mr. Welch’s wife was the “Head Teacher” of the Primary School and the family lived in the cottage that was part of the school compound.

And I can’t help now but fume at the waste of some of my precious time being taught about some obscure persons who we could only learn about from textbooks and try to visualise who they were and what part they played in our life and history. Yet our very own “national treasure who was a hero in his own rights” and was there in person to share his stories with us was not given the opportunity. Not only did we not get to hear first-hand out of the “horse’s mouth” about life on the front line, but we did not get to celebrate their lives and give them the accolades they rightfully deserved. I don’t believe in waiting until a person has died to celebrate their achievements. You might now ask why I then only write about people when they are dead, but if you check you will see that is not really the truth and I can only document stories when I get hold of them.

I am full of good intentions, have started many stories only for something or other to crap up to get me off my track. I, therefore, have to set myself targets and meet deadlines in order that I can bring these stories to the public attention. Even when I have time on my hands something always comes between me and what I really want to be doing to hinder my progress. As they say time waits for no one and one has to make the most of the time we are given before it is too late and we live in regrets for not accomplishing some of what really matters in life. When I watched that TV programme all those years ago, I never really thirst for knowledge as I later aspired to. I am using my God-given talents to make the most of my creativity as some of my research empowered me to go on to achieve so much that give me so much satisfaction and pleasure in life.

I think I have mellowed with the years and I am better off as I can use my knowledge and expertise not only to benefit myself but to enrich the lives of others. That’s why I’ve resolved to do something about addressing the imbalance that was created that caused us not to learn about our local hero, one of our very own who fought in the World Wars to give us access to freedom. I am proud to say my navel string was buried at Townhead where I was born nearly 60 years ago. I was and is pleased/proud as punch when I discovered all those years ago that Mr Welch a community member was a local hero. I recall telling my Breda Balis about seeing him on the TV when I spoke to him. I am sure every person in the little pockets of nook and cranny in the communities would like to know about the local heroes who live amongst them.

And probably would have liked to hear Mr. Welch tell his story to the students and his fellow citizens about his experiences. I know without a doubt that was one of the best ways for those stories to have come alive, instead of us only reading about them in text books. As I said each time I did my research and start my projects to write about the life of another great before they die the “devil always put a spanner in the spokes” to thwart me but I am vowing to get my own back. During the time when “I was walking away from diabetes” I was walking along the New Kent Road when I spotted a “commemorative plaque dedicated to the Commonwealth men and women who fought in the World Wars” and documented it for future reference. Already a pattern was forming in my mind about the possibilities that might come up for me to use those photographs.

And I also remembered the programme on the TV about Mr. Welch. That’s why tonight I am sitting at the computer after a tiring day trying to set myself a deadline to finish this story to get it published for tomorrow’s “Remembrance Sunday celebrations” when I can pat myself on the back. Saying I am doing my bit in rewriting history for the future generations of Jamaicans whose parents and grandparents were deprived of being taught the history of persons like Mr. Welch. Including some of the greatest Jamaican who played their parts big or small in shaping the world in which we live. I hope the finished product will be as pleasing to others as I have the pleasure of doing my research and writing it. First and foremost this story is in honor of Massy Welch and all those great Jamaican men and women who made valuable contributions to Jamaica in particular and the world in general.

I am sorry that my generation was not taught our history to know about the sacrifices you made to make this world a better place for us to enjoy living in. Because of your unfailing dedicated services to securing our freedom, we are living in a society where we can avail ourselves of the rights that we are entitled to. That’s only one of the reasons I am vowing to fight to the death in exposing those evil people who are hell-bent on exploiting the vulnerable in society. Trying to enslave us like in the Slavery Days 200+ years ago. Just so that they can claim superior statuses over us. These people have been caught napping on the job, whilst they are found wanting to abuse their power of authority. They think nothing of hiding under the umbrella of their organisation discriminatory practice, criterion and provision to “rule and divide” as they use dirty tricks against us.

They write their Contract with the fine prints that are full of bureaucratic red tape and rhetoric that are meant to achieve unrealistic managerial targets at the expense of the service users and those of us who have to work under Slavery. They begin to see others who are not slaves to Contract that say are there in place to breach current laws and legislations. That provide substandard services as threats to their incompetence of delivering inappropriate practice. So they will try and destroy us at whatever to silence us from disagreeing with and challenging them about what is wrong.  On 11.11.2015 I swear to almighty, ever-loving, ever faithful, eternal God that I will not sit idly by and let any of that evil, small-minded, racist bullying thugs get away with what they did before.

These culprits who are the lowest of the low rattlesnakes who made my life a living hell get away with what they are doing to me. In 2003 – 2008 some other unscrupulous pen pushers, done the same thing to me and got away with it because everyone will rather turn a blind eye than deal with the issues at hand. Then later on they pretended as if they were not warned about situations that are caused for concerns. This time I am fighting to the bitter end to stop these ones in their track. I know God is giving me the strength and wisdom to carry on to unveil them so they dare not “tek libatty wid any of God’s anointed chosen children again” and they will think seriously of how they have lighted and ruined the lives of innocent people for their own selfish gains and bloated egos.

By the time I am finished, I give my solemn promise to all of my fellow humans who have managed to escape, are forced to stick around like I did hope they would see sense. Or suffering in silence because they are gagged and when they are “frustrated and provoked into cutting the navel string”   and run for their lives. They are encumbered by the negative discourses and literature they write about us called reference” which means you can no longer find employment. But woe betides those who make judgments about others before even trying to see what is happening because they will eventually do the same. I won’t even touch on those who set out to exploit others like me. When the evil prejudiced hypocrites that enslaved us paid them “blood money and have them in their pockets”. So they think they must join the bandwagons of “direct discriminations”.

But fear not I have them in my sights as I collect my paper trails of evidence. Then because they are “weak exploitative cowards” they might end up putting the chains that they used to enslave us around their corrupted necks. Some of them can give the bad treatments, but can’t take it and crumble at the first hurdle. God could have made the earth in 1 day and taken off the rest of the time to go brag and boasts about His achievements. But He painstakingly worked diligently 6 days like a slave, ensuring every little details were done to perfection and rested on the 7th day like an architect and celebrated His handy work. So all those who they made scapegoats and victims without a chance to restore their good name and character that they destroy with lying discourses.  

Please you can rest assured that despite my ordeals over the past year, I am on the case and God is going to give them their just rewards. Because everyone will be paid for the work they have done on this earth that God made for us all to enjoy, not just the chosen few. As Bob Marley sang “Emancipate yourselves from mental Slavery… None but ourselves can free our Minds…” all of us have a calling in life even though we might not find out what it is until a certain period throughout life’s journey. My writing is not to fool or pull the wool over the eyes of anyone. I have been writing since my childhood. I credit myself for researching, hearing a story, and being able to relate it to my own experiences. Then deciding that sharing my experiences via my creativity and talents might just be the catalyst in helping another person realise that there is light at the end of the darkened tunnel.

Their situation is not unique only to themselves, so they can find the early/late interventions to help them overcome some of the adversities in their lives. That way I don’t have to resort to plagiarising the work of others like has been done to me all this time I’ve worked in the UK. Six years they used my hands to show God, then they decided they had enough of me because I serve my purpose and is too knowledgeable for them – the dunce bats. So now they have to destroy me to wipe out my contributions to building them up. Making them a beacon that others are proud to talk about more the better for working in partnerships as colleagues, parents, or other professionals. I have to accolades presented to me by appreciative parents to tell different stories from the ones they are making up about me the past year.

So prejudiced others who they have cuckold into their corner, please take notes! One of the 1st things coming to my mind when I see and hear Mr. Welch’s reaction to the little lizard, my own reaction was how can a big man like him who fought in the World War be scared/afraid of lizards. I was saying this on the basis of knowing him personally as he was a formidable presence in the community. Anyone reading this and knew him knows about his physical attributes because “he was as tall as a coconut tree in the air” and as for his intellectual skills well you’d have to go find someone from the “Brissett and Henry rum bar debating society” to fill you in on that aspect of  Mr. Welch’s knowledge. That’s why I still can’t get it or begin to understand why the powers that be did not make him part of our educational systems educating future generations of Jamaicans.

I am sure I would have benefitted enormously from having the first-hand knowledge about Mr. Welch from our textbooks and hearing him sharing his personal experiences of how he and his fellow brave men and woman from across the Commonwealth Nations made contributions to make us “free at lasts…” in the words of Marin Luther King. I must confess I know hardly anything about Mr. Welch, but now that I got a tiny glimpse of the great person who sacrificed his life. For the world to be a free place for us to live, I mourn the missed opportunities that were not afforded him and his comrades to document their contributions in the annals of history. Especially at this time when we are celebrating and honouring the memories of every great man and woman who has done even one little deed of bravery for others to be free of which Mr. Welch played an important role.

Now because of my own personal experiences I will have to explore a little bit why Mr Welch might have developed a fear of those lizards that I thought should not be for a big man like him. Some of us have developed one phobia or another holding us captives over a lifetime. I certainly have my own phobias or as I am won’t name them “My Hidden Disabilities” going back to childhood. Recently attending a lecture at my old Alma Mata – the Open University re: Neuroscience and the Law. I was dumbstruck by what I was hearing. The reasons being I could identify parallels to my life about some of the issues that were affecting my life for the past year. The more I listened the more it became clear that I had done the best thing I had ever done in my life before. When I took that final decision to save myself and my husband from what were imposed on us.

I stopped worrying about how I was going to provide for my own basic needs of providing food, shelter and clothing and thought instead of the slow death I was being forced to endure because my face no longer fit. I had to get out of a situation that enslaved me for 6 years and that was slowly killing me. I realised no job was worth losing your dignity, the self-esteem and confidence you struggled to gain and I had the courage to tell them to sod off and go stick their job… Someone else can join them to suffer like they made me suffer the past year. So most likely something might have affected Mr. Welch to cause him to develop a fear of those lizards, who knows? No doubt he might have been left with scars resulting from traumas, but he has taken those to the grave with him too.

Maybe he came back from the World Wars a changed man from the one who set out to defend his country and the Motherland as a young man with dreams, but they were not the realities he expected. This could no doubt have impacted how he lived his life once returning to Civilian Life. Al things considered, many of us although not having fought in any World Wars, have had to take part in our own personal warfare on many battlefields as we fight our ways out of the “Prisoner Camps” that we are still being enslaved in by the inhumane cowards that are our employers, government, etc that ruled over us. They use the bureaucratic red tape and rhetoric entrenched in their laws and legislations that they construct and named CONTRACT to captivate us.

While they shackled us like when our fore parents journey through the “Middle Passage” and had to kick up rumpus to survive. In order to provide for our basic human needs of food, clothing, and shelter we are enslaved by their contracts of practice, criterion, and provision. These are placed around our bodies ensuring we fall prey to whatever they want us to do regardless of the consequences and impacts on fragile minds and bodies. Like the vulnerable individuals who were our fore parents. They were torn away from the certainty of consistency, familiarity and continuity of their family and homeland and thrust into an unknown world that did not always understand their need for understanding without first trying to change them to be someone they were not.

Because from day one the cards were stacked against us as a RACE. Some who think they are our superiors still think they have the power to hold us captives. As formidable individuals with strong survival instincts embedded in our DNA. Only the fittest of the fittest and wittiest of our Ancestors who see off their captors managed to use their survival instincts to stay alive despite the mistreatments. Like being packed like sardines in a tin for the Middle Passage journeys. If those experiences that Mr Welch had gone through were documented who knows, maybe I could have benefitted from them. So I didn’t have to stay fighting some inhumane people for an entire year before the penny dropped and I was forced to run for my life.

There is Discriminations at all sections of an unjust society where dog eats dog for survival at the whims and fancies of some with their bloated egos. But fear not, I will be taking them down by the time I am finished if that is the last thing I do, with God’s help of course. And the prayers of those who know me for the person who I am warts and all. From what I know of Mr. Welch, he was one of those characters in the community who was an intellect, knowing his Bible back to front and using quotes from said Bible to back up his arguments. Like many of his generations, he was a “Rum Bar teacher/preacher” who shared his views with his peers. Now I am assuming that he might have related his experiences about being a World War Veteran, fighting on the battlefields, but I will never know now unless it is recorded somewhere.

Mass Astley Smith was responsible for telling me about the exploits of some of those who gathered in the “Brissett and Henry Rum Bars at the famous Townhead Cross Roads” but I am sure I never heard about Mr. Welch flying the flags for Hanover/Westmoreland Jamaica fighting in the World Wars. That’s why I am peeved that opportunities were lost to utilize Mr. Welch’s knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the future generation including yours truly. Being the husband of the “Head Mistress of the Primary School” I attended, living at the cottage, he was he would have been the right person to help with our education and he was within distance of a captivated audience. I know we would have benefitted no ends from hearing about the experiences of the local hero of Mr. Welch’s calibre.

I know what I am talking about because greatness is built into our DNA and I recall when Loy took on such a role training some of the future generations of athletes from Townhead Primary School when she was pregnant with her child Kim Welch. I hope no one is going to come and test me now saying I think I know everything but know nothing after having me doing their work for 6 years and not even acknowledging my contributions. Then they and their feisty selves tell me I am not to say I work with them and spend the better part of a year hounding me out of my job destroying my health in the processes. But they can continue to try and underestimate me at their perils when they chose to dis me without a cause. They will “haffi pay fi roast and boil and even bun up” to, for the hounding of the innocent person who tried to defend me and paid the price like I am doing.

Once again I am using my Continuing Personal Professional Plan (CPPDP) to share my vision, educate the masses on the perils and pitfalls they might have to confront and overcome throughout their lives. As I tell the stories about local heroes like Mr Welch who played integral parts in our lives, yet we were not made aware of it. That’s why I believe the story I heard from a Jamaican Englishman years ago about the indomitable spirits of our Ancestors. Who journey the Middle Passage and survived so we can tell stories about them down the generations. The story goes, we Jamaican are the way we are because during the Middle Passage the Slaves although packed like sardines in a tin were still rebelling against the unfair treatments. Their captors did not know what to do with the strong-willed rebellious ones.

On reaching the shores of Jamaica, they throw the Rebellious Slaves overboard and went on their merry way. As Ms Louise Bennett would a did say “If a lie dem a tell, a nuh me say suh, a suh mi hear it…” And maybe dat’s why mi believe in Anansi Stories because only a Ginnal like Anansi could think on his feet and stay one step ahead of di bastards who set out to enslave and kill out wi roots.  Because dem fear our talents and creativity to reinvent ourselves like Brer Anansi him/herself.  I guess for the captors they solved the short term problems and thought that was the end of that lot, who didn’t put up with their captors bullying tactics keeping them subdued by use of enforced punishment. But they only started what was to become long-term problems later.

I can imagine it was every man and woman for themselves being thrown overboard facing an uncertain death of drowning. But thanks to God those that survived and inhabited Jamaica did not suffer fools gladly and put up with their foolishness forever once they gave them the chance to make amends. Like I did to these Racist Bullying Thugs that mistreated me for a 1+. My fore parents went on to become a thorn in their flesh producing our National Heroes and the Mr Massy Welch’s, who fought our battles for us in the World Wars and later when leaving Jamaica again to seek their fortunes, making a better life for themselves and family. Considering their backgrounds I am certain our fore-parents were a mix of proud people out of Africa who combined to make a fresh start in Jamaica and other parts of the world they were shipped to.

With my limited knowledge about history I refused to go down that road because history is well documented for those who want to know about their heritage, roots and cultures. However I will continue telling the stories from my perspectives as I come across the experiences of those who played important parts in my life and I make comparisons between my life and theirs. Therefore I am using my personal experiences to highlight the plight that some of us are going through as we battle the Wars of Discriminations years after Slavery was Abolished that we face daily in a society that is sometimes only prepared to listen to those who can put a spin on things using the machinery associated with cronyisms.

They therefore hide under the umbrella of big named brands, abusing their power of authority, discriminating against us, making us scapegoats, and making us victims to suit their inflated egos. I am here exploding the myth that discrimination from Slavery has been eradicated and does not exist in a Civilised Society, but nothing could be further from the truth. I am one of the most qualified persons, dumped on the Unemployment rubbish heap because I fight for my values and beliefs and the principles I was brought up with by my parents. As well as making my implicit knowledge explicit and challenging social injustices and inequality. But as my granny and mother used to say “dog a sweat but long hair cover it” because it’s only since I have been talking about my experiences that I realised the corrupt system that vulnerable people are still forced to live under whilst pretending life is “coming up roses.

Then they chat from the corner of their mouths what they seem to believe in their prejudicial minds about subjects like “MENTAL HEALTH Issues” that they have absolutely no knowledge about. I swear on the graves of my dead parents even though my papa did not like me cussing, that no one else is going to get away with trying to destroy me by blackening my good name and exemplary character that I developed all these years from my childhood like they did 2003 – 2008, over my dead body. When I stand up for my rights not to be discriminated against this time around I was labeled and targeted like they did my fore parents. They tried to kill me off with a slow death over a period of a year as they did to the Slaves and what they are doing to the innocent vulnerable people in those war-torn countries.

I refused to get caught up in anyone’s Religion and Politics except my own, but like in Biblical days, these evil people held me captives over a year… My health is adversely affected, my life crumbled despite me giving up my RIGHTS in order that I could survive and provide for my basic needs. They stripped me of my dignity taking away what means the most in the world to me. Then despite me leaving to save my life, they turn around blocking every chance for me to recover. So who the bloody hell can now tell me to turn the other cheek, because not even my papa who lived his life to the Bible teaching would have done. He stood up and told them what he thought of those who went too far, come out from amongst them and be separated. He found solace and comfort somewhere else where others respected him for who he was and did not forcing their rhetoric down his throat.

I am getting my life back on track with support from professionals but there are vultures out there waiting to pounce to eat the flesh from my body. Therefore I refused to be exploited anymore and will not fall prey to them. So whilst I repair myself with professional support because I can no longer do it on my own. There are traumas that although can be repaired and controlled can’t be cured. In the meantime, I have developed my own strategies to help me get back to optimum health. I am building up a Support Network so I never ever feel I am alone with my problems and can have others to turn to when I hit Crisis Point. In the meantime Memo to Exploiters: Sod off I don’t need any of you trying to make my situation worse. I am an honest God fearing person going through a period of upheavals in my life, but the detractors are responsible.

All those of you who are consciously or subconsciously prejudiced against people you are prepared to judge can go take a flying jump off somewhere. I am capable of writing my own stories thanks to the “Open University” and all the other people like teachers in particular Ms. UNA PERRY from my early years who influenced my life. I might have to accept that because of the prejudices of some who view my knowledge, values and beliefs as threats to their incompetence, I may never work again. But I have no intention of giving up and in the long run someone will have to pay.

Do I hear anyone raising questions starting the debates about Repatriations and Funding of Prisons in Jamaica? I am all for open debates as we enjoy Freedom of Speech unlike those who GAGGED me for exercising my Rights not to be Discriminated against. Then when they finished and couldn’t come up with any legal reasons to overcome me they lied again using their CONTRACT to threaten me and using illegal methods to try and frighten me into submission. But I will still survive to tell my story as I celebrate the life of one local hero from the place of my birth, Townhead, Mr. Massy Welch.

If wishing I knew before about your dedication and courage putting your life on the line to give me the freedom that I deserve was something I could back dated, I would gladly do so. But at the same time I might have to argue, that I may not have been prepared and ready like I am now to write even this little story about your life. Coming to the UK has given me the opportunity to shape a life that was blighted and where I never had the self-confidence to change the deficits and limitations that blighted my life. But I am free at last and maybe my experiences over the past year are just another learning curve showing me the resilient person I am.

The credit of course goes to my parents and all the other persons who played their roles in my development, from childhood to where I am now. So I am privileged to use your story the little I know to make others aware of what I am going through. Proud to be a West- More- Light unearthing the story about the life and times of our worthy people for all to appreciate.

On Remembrance Sunday I join hands and heart to salute the memory of that great man who was Mr Welch!
