This is to inform those responsible at the Southwark Health Ambassador continuing the Systematic Discrimination of Mervelee Myers that I will be attending this “Coffee Morning” as a RESEARCHER. The purpose of my RESEARCH is to establish how Southwark Council colluded with the Judiciary of England and Wales in the discrimination of Mervelee Myers when I worked at Kings College NHS Foundation Trust after the death of my brother with Colon Cancer.
Since Southwark Health Ambassador failed to contact me since they sent threatening letter inviting me to the “Meeting”, I will make sure the world knows about AKEEMA PAUL. And why I was removed from the WhatsApp Group. Then Southwark Council will answer questions about the role the SEND Section played in the impact on my Mental and Physical Health from 2008.
As for Cancer Awareness training refer to my involvement in Fundraising from my brother died with Colon Cancer. In a nutshell refer to https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site for more. I will tell the world about Akeema Paul’s behaviour and compare to the GP Practice. Refer to https://www.facebook.com/groups/RattyNembhard for my 18 Facebook Pages to understand why Southwark Health Ambassadors will issue me with a “Public Apology”.
I just had to under go Colopsy Screening. Check my record and Facebook Pages for more.
Refer to my online Profile for how I have been an INFLUENCER. But AKEEMA Paul and Isabella Hester think they are GOD removing me from the WhatsApp Group. The world will know about them and Ginett Hogan and all the DISCRIMINATORS at Southwark Health Ambassadors.
Now the world must know about the HMCTS and CPS and CJS roles in covering up www.leyf.org.uk and www.uel.ac.uk the ABUSERS Rings of June O’Sullivan and Richard Harty Men in Childcare. Why Mervelee Myers is a Criminal needing Emotional Regulation Treatment. Then www.gov.uk/dbs will be exposed with Ofsted for turning a blind eye to the discrimination of children. Young people and vulnerable adults. You can get copies of my PUBLICATIONS about my “Expert Authority on Subjects from the Cradle to the Grave”. Who is responsible for Mervelee Myers Mental Health? My DBS said I am under Mental Health Requirements. Who is administering that?
8 years after I was denied my ENTITLEMENTS to cover up LEYF PAEDOPHILE RINGS by Richard Harty Men in Childcare I was sent Capability for Work Questionnaire. Now am to go for ASSESSMENT after what DWP and Universal Credit did to me. Stopping my benefits and trying to wipe my Journal of all data. Then www.hfw.org.uk targeted me via my RACIST neighbour. What has Southwark Council done after I contacted them?
The catalogue of DISCRIMINATION after the death of my MPOTHER with DEMENTIA will be part of my RESEARCH.

The cost of living has been increasing across the UK since early 2021 and in April 2022, inflation reached its highest recorded level. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates that it is now higher than at any time since around 1982, affecting the affordability of goods and services for households. Low-income households spend a larger proportion than average on energy and food so will be more affected by price increases. Approximately 21% of Southwark’s population live in communities ranked within the most deprived nationally.
