Hmm I had a tought this morning about anyone that may read this may get some ... false impressions about me.
The false impressions I have had before are most annoying to recieve so I thought that may be I should explain a little something about myself and the things I have done...
It may be all too easy for any reader to assume that, like they do for most benefit claimants albeit wrongly, that I am some kind of lazy, large butted individual that sits on his backside all day watching TV stuffing his face of crisps and anything else within arms reach. Nothing could be further from the truth...
I have worked on and off for years but more importantly to this is that loved it as I did when i worked for Land Rover, along with others, a few things became obvious. Such a way are companies run nowadays that there is no taking into account of an employees difficulties and any disabilities and pain they may have, well in my experience anyway. Your pushed and pushed to give 120% but when, as I have often done, you give 200% and on many ocassions saved them hundreds of pounds, conservative, within a couple of minutes by performing something that would require a call out, one ocassion around £500, the best you get is 'oh thanks for that! Do you realise you just saved us £500?!' But then when you arrive 5 minutes late on a 7 mile journey, and having pains in your feet, you get sarcastic comments. To make matters worse I could, and often did, switch to many different departments with the company to the point that within a couple of months the departments would get into arguments about who was to use me. Parts department, drivers department, reception and even the managing director had all been involved. I was also the only one trusted with a car owned by HRH the Prince of Wales...a shame I did not get to meet him, lol.
I left there for something closer to home that backfired, he was a liar and a cheat and his speech about me working for him was total bollocks and wanted me as I was professional. However three weeks in he wanted me to LIE to a customer whos car his company had NOT ONLY DAMAGED while being REPAIRED but the damage was not on the initial assessmen documentation meaning we were bound by law to repair it. What was the damage? A paint chip to the bonnet. Because I returned with the car, as the customer pointed out the documention and lack of a large chip and I agreed with her I was fired upon my return to the offices. THREE WEEKS. I had also taken out a student loan to buy a car to get there!!! That loan was also victim of the Payment Protection scandal which did not get media and national attention for another 5 years or more!!
As well as all this I have also attempted to get help starting my own business but was refused and told there was NOTHING...EVEN WHEN I WAS REGISTERED AS DISABLED! I do have documentation here, no dubt buried deep within one of my dozen or more folders, that I will put on here at a later date.
So imagine my shock and horror when I discovered that an asylum seeker that lived not far from me recieved...
House with more bedrooms than required?!
£200 week food vouchers?!
All family mobile phones paid for and the bills?!
All driving lessons paid for?!
Given £6,000 to buy a car, they bought an Audi?!
When wanted to start their own business were given grant of £60,000?!?!?!?!
THESE ARE JUST THE ONES I WAS TOLD ABOUT!
In twelve years on my conditions i was provided with NONE OF THE ABOVE!!!!
Not even help to start my own business! Madness. What would have he been trained in? He opened an Off Licence. I could start a business in building computers, software engineering, Orchid propagation, aquarium shop, reptile shop, amphibian shop, Mountain Bike shop end even teaching martial arts?! Indeed I could actually do a combination of the above with the right help and proper planning!!
Oh in the pictures you will also see that I have an keen interest and love of other things too, like Astronomy and Astrophysics! SO I xoule open up an Optical Equipment store?! Oh that reminds me, I like photography too.
I thought about becoming an author and started several books but due to health but primarily the LACK OF SUPPORT in the UK they got shelved between 3 and 5 chapters in. I then completed, in writing at least, another one which was scientific based and on the Amphibians of Europe which consists of my OWN ARTWORK but needed photos to finish it and in A5 format would be 500 pages long! That got shelved too along with the scifi novels but when I was attacked by the bailiffs and once I recovered an very bizarre incident with a crow while out of my head with Swine Flu prompted me to write a book about all this. That was finished! Then another and very serious and potentially fatal chapter begun that prompted me in time to write ANOTHER BOOK, and THAT ONE is finished too all bar tha last couple of chapters!! These two 'volumes' number over 160,000 words currently!!!! The one to be finished 'volume TWO' is how I do the jobs of people paid between £50,000 to £200,000 annually for 18 MONTHS! EIGHTEEN MONTHS!! LMAO!
I do not like sitting on my backside for several reasons but have been FORCED to do so and now the government want to whip my arse because I have not worked?!?!
This was explained to me by the guy's neighbour whos father was present and had to hold his anger at hearing this man explain this.
