Wales Land Of The Discriminators . . . with a little help from Twitter

Hi Mr Vine 

I've been hiding away. Naughty of me, but hey! There is only so much neglect one can take. As your aware I've been turning up to the paint n brushes instead. Not something that #Senedd appear to like. Given that someone must have complained to twitter about my images.

Oh for a class act solicitor, to remind Twitter that discrimination is against the law. Eh Mr Dorsey.

It seems they have been taken down ever since the death of Rhodri Morgan. From the 17th May onwards. Maybe they are afraid of me showing this banner.

After all Mr Morgan was one of the signatories to creation of the Welsh Assembly Government. The self same government that. Sold the peoples housing provision down the river. For a little bit of power in the Devolved Administrations. 

That was when these HRAS payments first came into being. Isn't it Mr Carwyn Jones? That is when the Treasury started demanding franchise payments, from Social Housing providers. Remember when I said the game was rigged in favour of Private Landlords Mr Vine. You don't see any of them having to pay what 25% of rental income back to the Treasury do you?

All so the Welsh Assembly could be funded. Nice one Political Elite dudes. You sure know how to look after your own. While dumping on the people. Then you all have the gall to claim your #StandingupforWales. BS!

Here are the two that got through the censors on Twitter. I expect they will be taken down after this.

and this . . . 
and you will not see this one in Photos on the #Senedd timeline
Now why would twitter be hiding that from the people of Wales Mr Vine. I think its a good likeness based on the image I used. Oh yes some artists are liked more than others in Wales. Eh Mr Jones Ms Wood Mr Andrew RT Davies. 

Cos someone complained somewhere, and twitter went along with the complaint, and well would you be amused Mr Vine. I certainly am not. The old chestnut ''I might not agree with what you have to say. But I will fight for your right to say it'' Really springs to mind.

You wont find them on #Wales or #Plaidcymru at least not after the 17th of May 2017. This one did make it though.
But then neither can Ms Wood reply to those serious concerns either.

I was supposed to receive another letter from the DWP. They told me in a phone conversation that apparently it was posted on the 15th April. I have 3 choices. 1)they lied and never sent it to me. 2) The post service really has gone to hell in a handbasket since privatisation. or 3) Eskimo man got it.

So lets talk hate crime shall we Mr Vine.

They have finally succeeded in killing my Honeysuckle at the front of the garden.

We have a new names for Eskimo man. He is now called Agent Orange or as Inner Dwave likes to call him ''Mr Dweebfoliant man. Cos you gotta be a dweeboid ta do what he has''

 Where Mr Fowler failed. Agent Orange has succeeded. You know the only thing that I expect to be done is that the council come along and tell me I will have to take the sheet down, again. and I will reply just like I have in the past. ''Get a court order'' Cos I would really like to have a chat with 'The Judge'. 

Note in the image how green the undergrowth is. During the dry spell I bucketed as well as hose piped the front garden. As to how Mr Vine. He's been using something in an areosol spray can. Don't know what. But that has been his modus operandi. When you can nolonger wind someone up, seems that you have to damage their property.

No coppers will bother with this. Only wish I had a forensic biologist for a friend. I would have handed over the leaves for them to test when the leaf drop first started. Way back in April, after my first trim. Oh how lovely it was looking then. Not that any housing officer is going to care either is it Mr Vine. Hell they cant chase up ''Did you get an appointment with Eskimo Man to check out the holes in the roof ?'' With their maintenance division. 

And just like the 3 stooges at the #Senedd they have endorsed hate crime here. Year in year out since 2002. How their Medical Officer keeps their job fasinates me Mr Vine. Oh those hate crime endorsers.  How we would love to see the 'Comes around' for them.

I wonder if he's happy with his handy work old Agent Orange. I wonder if he's really pleased with his achievement. Does it buy him kudos with the other haters? It's not the only game he's been playing. But lets not publisize his antics. 

Here's the 4th in my Star Series that the people at twitter don't want you seeing on the #Senedd timeline. 
So when they start bleating about how they support 'The Arts' You can all heckle them with ''Yeah well worrabout Crazydaves paintings huh . . . Not much support shown there!''

I have finished the 5th in the series Mr Vine it's this.

The one and only Mr Ian Dury. This one has taken the longest of all to do. We loves to paraphrase songs from Alanis through to Mr Dury. Like this ''I havent 'arf known so 'orrible bastards'' to this ''What it all boils down to my friend. Is that Crazydave was right all this time . . . and what it all comes down to . . . is that the Law of Karma is gonna bite them on the ass . . . Cos I've got one hand in my pocket and the other is giving the finger''

We are currently spending time as and when on the 6th in the Series Mr Vine. That's when we aren't having to rectify damage caused by the haters. Or blogging n tweeting in the hope of bringing the neglect the negligence the hate crime to an end.

Time to tweet Mr Vine Oh one last thing http://www.itv.com/news/2016-08-16/nhs-testing-cannabis-based-pain-relief-pen/

Shame they aren't using Rick Simpsons oil. But it's a start. I was dissapointed to hear your doctors Jarvis trotting out the ''Current strains of skunk causing psychosis'' line on your depression section. What gets me with these ''experts'' is. Do they actually know any long term cannabis users? My guess is they don't.

This image was again taken down from photos on the #Senedd page today.
So I posted this 
End of post for now.

Update 1st june 20017

Seeing as we are on a roll Mr Vine. This thought has been on my mind. 

Would the people of Cardiff have voted for a Welsh Assembly if they had been told. ''We will be taking £200 Million in Council rent monies over the first 18yrs of the Assembly. To help fund it'' and the same thing told the 10 other Local Authority areas the same senario. As they all have the same ball park figures. 

If the people had known the truth of it's cost to them and their children and their childrens children. I think they would have given a resounding ''NO!'' But like #Brexit they have not been told the whole story, and still its not publicised. Much like nothing on the news about Cardiff Council taking out a £187 Million loan to buy themselves out of HRAS.

End of update.

Hello Mr Vine, Everybody

I will come back to the rent increase shortly Mr Vine. For those new to the blog you will need to read this post http://bit.ly/1MhpPag and this post http://bit.ly/2iNNEvT 

First I would like to talk about Sanctions by the DWP. When I see tweets like this Mr Vine. I ask myself ''Why haven't the three devolved administrations gotten together and challenged Sanctions in the law courts?''
After all The Welsh People like to consider themselves champions of the oppressed. They are despisers of bullies, especially those with power over others. Given Mr Jones background you would have assumed that he could raise an arguement in favour of the UN decision. So that no DWP employee in Wales ever dared sanction anyone. Or else risk imprisonment for Human Rights abuses.

You might find this an interesting read Mr Vine. researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/CBP-7813/CBP-7813.pdf 

Especially the part on cost of monitoring versus what they save by sanctions. It cost more to police than it ever saves. I'd call that an exersize in futility. Or to quote a phrase ''Vulnerable adults just cash cows for the professional elite'' In this case employing DWP staff that they would be better off making redundant. To tha tune of £100Million a year.

(Inner child) ''You sure knows how ta save money qwazydwave'' Thass right kid!

So to the rent situation Mr Vine.

Yep they really pushed the boat out this time. A 4.89% rent increase. I've been wondering if the Chancellor has done any projections on the increase in cost to the Housing Benefit budget 2017/18. If other councils are following Cardiff County Councils lead on their ''Notice of Rent Variation'' Odd how it never goes down the longer your a tenant isn't it?

Mines gone up £3.90pw. Nice work if you can get it eh Mr Vine? Guess its time to see what last years rent yeild was, not sure if I can screen save the page.

On page 9 of The Statement of Accounts for 2015/16 it reads as follows:

Housing Revenue Account (HRA) The net surplus for the year, prior to transfers to earmarked reserves, was £716,000. This included income from rents and charges for services totalling £67.636 million and repairs, maintenance,supervision and management costs totalling £40.602million. Increased volume and demand for repairs to Council dwellings were offset by savings in a number of other areas including employees and insurance costs, contributing to the overall surplus. This surplus has been transferred to earmarked reserves for use in future years in tackling overcrowding and reinvesting in the housing stock. The HRA balance as at 31 March 2016 is £8.438 million.

During 2015/16, the Council made a one off payment of £187.392 million to exit the Housing Revenue Account Subsidy System (HRAS), which is recognised as capital expenditure and shown as an exceptional item in the Comprehensive Income & Expenditure Statement, within these accounts. The HRAS was a funding mechanism introduced many years ago by National Government whereby, in Cardiff’s case, circa £15 million of net rental income received from dwellings rents had to be passed back to HM Treasury, via Welsh Government. Under the new self-financing regime, the Council can now retain and reinvest all income. However, it is required to make annual payments for additional interest and to set monies aside towards the repayment of loans taken out in order to make the one off payment.
I find the one off payment to exit (HRAS) totally astonishing. That's 12 years at £15million in one hit??? What the heck are the interest repayments on that loan Mr Vine?

Cant do a screen shot as yet Mr Vine. But here is the link to the pdf http://bit.ly/2m1oeZB Page 99 for the HRA figures. 

Total rent income for the year £67.636Million of which £41.398Million were the cost paid out. I've neglected to add the depreciation (Still running that fiction I see) or the loan payment for the (HRAS)(What a scam that is). 

In a Stand Alone Bank Account we would be showing a profit of £26.238Million. Quite a considerable difference to the £8.4Million balance they are trying to 'Fob Us Off On' Don'tcha think Mr Vine?

So rents increase by 4.89% projected increase on £67.636M = £70.943M for 2016/17. Or a £3.307Million a year increase.

I did so like this tweet to you Mr. Vine.

If you've read the previous blogs. You will know that I have grave concerns, over the speed with which these annual percentage rent increase. Make the doubling of the rent over time shorter and shorter. So far its taken 19yrs next time if left unchecked, and this type of rise go ahead. The rent for this below minimum building standard regs flat will go from now £83.70pw to £167.4pw.

It was either £42 or £44pw when I moved here in 1999. If I rummaged I'd probably find the exact figure. But it's not like anyone but me cares, isn't it Mr Vine. So now the rent is at a house charge for that time.

Will the minimum wage rise to meet that for 2033? £83.70 x 4.5% annual increase takes 16yrs to get to £169.27 Mr Vine. That's if the MSM don't ask the likes of Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, Carwyn Jones or Nicola Sturgeon. Given the current financial climate don'tcha think Crazydave's plan is worth implimenting? 

You know the plan Mr Vine from the previous blog. The lets Slash that Housing Benefit Budget plan. As mentioned in this tweet on budget day.
Or to members of the opposition at the Senedd.
Certainly not the £26Million that would be in a Stand Alone Bank Account eh Mr Vine. People are to busy doing other things Mr Vine. To be concerned at the robbery taking place under their very noses. But then the professional elite don't care, do they Mr Vine. I'm just a cash cow for 'em.

Heck no Crazydave or else they might have emailed ya back with a ''We are on the case, of the roof needs looking at. Mr Gabriel''.

Oh, and lets not forget BBC Wales. Getting a little reminder, of the things they ought to be quizzing. The First Minister over but alas and alack they fail so miserable on.
Just so you don't feel unduly put upon Mr Vine. Luckily your safe on facebook Mr Vine. As my account has been temporarily closed. As they don't like the title Mr Spookydude. I'm arguing it's my brand name, and after 10 years of ussage I'd very much like to keep it as such. I had my reasons then, and now for that choice. When Crazydave was denied me.

If push comes to shove, I will change it as I don't like political interference. Which is what it amounts to from my viewpoint. Plus, I wonder how much money I've made Mr Zuckerberg's company. In Ad revenue over that period of time!

Time to notify you of this missive Mr Vine. 

Well that's you notified Mr Vine 
As have these 
and these

Here's a timely link Mr Vine DWP WCA assesors asking ''Why havent you committed suicide yet'' http://linkis.com/com/7YIwe  

I have been experiencing all the other things mentioned in that post Mr Vine. Its not funny its not pleasant and long term Mental Health claimants really should not be put through these WCA.

Austerity is just a means of inflicting misery on the impoverished. All because Government refuse to take enlightend decisions. While the fat cats are getting all the cream. Like the self same MP's who voted for a £30pw benefit reduction for new ESA claimants. While last month they gave themselves a £1,000 a year rise. Its wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong Mr Vine.
