My life has been a roller-coaster and no mistake. Its all been downhill for too long though, time to do something about that.

"Say hello to my little friend..."

As a child I was bullied by my peers and ignored by my parents, my father being the worst of the lot until my mother finally managed to get us all away from him. I spent my childhood in a tiny rural English village that is frequented by royalty being the home of international Polo in the UK. Among a group of privileged youngsters I got to goal-judge and score for the rich and powerful as they played, and hung around the stables and the functions. Seemed pretty normal to me, some kids had a paper round to make some pocket money, and Royalty has always done as it pleases... So, despite wanting none of that world for myself I was already outside the working-class background I come from, and as a result didnt have many friends either. So I hid in the library and the computer room, or roamed the local countryside the rest of the time, and nobody paid attention to my dreams, not even me.

I was told not to dream, punished for not learning quickly enough and told I was useless so by the time my exams came around I just didnt bother revising, and left school to be a groundskeeper at a local hospital before I'd even passed them all with flying colours. Computers absorbed most of my free time and I didnt mind grubbing in the dirt for my keep and chasing student nurses around the accommodation.

Recreational drugs, alcohol, motorbikes, heavy metal and a series of jobs ranging from horticulture to heavy industry followed that, until I decided to see the world and find myself, and trampled back and forth all over Europe for a few months until the Wall fell. I was in Cologne, and I really wanted a piece, but I couldnt even get near it so I went back home to Blighty and wound up homeless, where I met the kids mum... That story is an epic in itself, but skipping over it just leads me to creating BLAIR, AIME and the other robots that I dreamed about as a child, and our government kindly destroyed and are preventing me from developing even today.

For what reason I cannot discern, but there must be deeper reasoning than just using me as free care for Bea because they dont get a penny from what I do.

This is the purpose of Obsidian, to hack a decent life for me an Bea out of MorningStar without putting her in care or me dying homeless and penniless, too old to care for Bea or work, and without a pension or savings - which is what the f*ing Tories have in store for me when I'm done.

I'm not down with that, I think I've got a lot more to give the planet before I'm gone for starters, and there is a sense of injustice to it even if I didnt. There's a lot more to a human being than being human, and that's all I've ever tried to do. Our so-called leaders should learn this.

If you have a suggestion or a criticism, this is the place for it. Ironically, I am the one thing I can claim very little expertise in. ;-)

    Poor Hench. He really hasnt got a leg to stand on. Its Garthoks all the way down...

    I've begun sharing this recent document chain with the agencies that are involved, but not with Hench. He's on his own, and he's going to find out what it feels like when some arrogant tosser with a big stick annexes your resources and support.

    Those weapons turned out to be very useful when he dropped them and ran like a coward back in his Ivory Tower after attempting to wield them against me.

    He's really professional too. "...delusional little man, nothing; just a carer and nothing more... weird... dangerous..."

    I've been called far worse, and you can bet he has.


    And, as I have just had to deal with Bea's period that I knew was going to hit me this weekend, I've just reported it as an offence and cited Hench as the abuser. I'll do it again tomorrow too.

    Revolting.

    He's going to wish he'd never heard of me by the time I am done.


    Again and again.

    This time I tagged the report with the ones about Candid Camera Guy and Pussy Galore, for which I have file references. I shouldnt have to do Police work for them, but when it comes to it I want a nice cohesive report detailing all the offences that I can present to the Court of Protection.

    If I leave it to our understaffed and overworked law enforcement, it will be a pile of random complaints and visits to my property that mean very little - if I can even get them all together in a report.

    They do actually have better things to do with their time than chase their own masters for corruption I guess, and we're too busy having fun.

    Well, most of us are. The Tentacles never rest, even when I sleep.

    It doesnt matter if your entire government is corrupt, and your PM even defies the Supreme Court in a vain effort to wrest control from his people. They still cant get away with it unless you let them.

    And I'm not.

    Brexit is a sham, but not for the reasons you'd think. Boris wants to use the opportunity of regaining the UK's lawmaking ability to consolidate Central Government's power over Parliament, who debate the laws ratified by the Supreme Court. He'd rather control rested in his fat and grubby hands. And if he has his way, we the people can say goodbye to the last shreds we have of our rights that are currently still protected by the

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Court_of_Human_Rights

    Which I am denied access to by our legal framework - which I am also denied access to by the changes made by this administration. I cannot get Legal Aid to take Local Authority to court for fraud and rights abuses against myself and my daughter, and I have had to fight tooth and nail just to get recognition from the various agencies within it that I am literally enslaved by these additions to our already broken system.

    I've been spied on, lied to, defrauded of thousands of pounds and my daughter has been coersively institutionalised and injured by neglect more than once to hide these transgressions until they can be further marginalised in the wake of the new laws created by regaining control in the wake of Brexit.

    Now they want me to defraud the benefits agency, claiming I am disabled by my daughters disabilities for the rest of my life because I am her carer - when they could in fact provide that care themselves. It IS law after all.

    The whole case hinges on whether Bea has capacity to make her own decisions, a duty that has been accorded to me as a carer and advocate, however as I am not volunteering for this duty willingly that advocacy isnt recognised.

    Enter Deprivation of Liberty Safeguarding Team, a part of the Court of Protection.

    This agency was engaged by Social Services in an attempt to get authorisation to keep Bea at a care home until recently - they gave consent for her to be detained and her freedoms restricted, and for decisions regarding medication and treatment to be made for her. They couldnt overrule me legally however, and were more than horrified to learn that they had trampled my rights by accident - they didnt know I existed, because Social Services lied to them. And now, having learned of the full story, are in the process of putting an application in to the Court of Protection to discuss the details of it in front of a Judge.

    Meanwhile

    One of the things authorised by DoLs is medication. Bea's been placed on a contraceptive pill, which helps with her demeanour as well as prevents bleeding. She doesnt need contraception, and that was only done to make it easier for the carers to manage her personal care. She's about to run out of these pills and as a male I am not entitled to procure them for her. They literally wont give me them because I'm a bloke, and the care homes have been securing them for her during her Respite breaks with DoLs permission.

    It was the only legal way Social Services could force me to continue caring myself - and now I have annexed DoLs that reign of terror is over. As soon as the course finishes I'll have to deal with her bleeding again, and I've already managed to establish this is a violation of human rights with the help of the police.

    They have given me advocacy, which means that if I were to be forced to deal with this again I'd have the right to report each day's care schedule as an assault and cite the social worker as the abuser by proxy. Nasty, dirty, shitty interdepartmental war between two halves of our governments enforcement arm...

    I called them and reminded them about the bomb ticking in Bea's knickers

    And all hell broke loose.

    So on Monday I now have a care agency visiting to negotiate Bea's care, and I can rest knowing that our legal system...

    I backed up my last email first to The Sun, and @Dr. Cockroach also has emailed them enclosing my story, which is at https://hackaday.io/project/29260-obsidian/log/168260-press-release-2 if you havent been following along.

    I dont blame you, but FFS, right? This cant go on.

    Please, do me and Bea a favour and email The Sun or one of the UK's other national papers with your take on it if this annoys you. Doesnt matter where in the world you are, and even if its just a few lines, every word counts.

    I may have upset Hench a little.

    I dont usually lose my temper with him, despite our differences of opinion, but after the tabloid I chose to bust this story open declined to even contact me [Hello, The Sun. Really helpful of you, thanks] I was already a little truculent.

    I'd left him a message, and feeling particularly pensive I bought a bottle of rum to calm my nerves and completely forgot all about that. I only had a glass, it wasnt like I was drunk when he called me back to update me on his progress. He told me proudly of having put out an advert, which had 64 responses to it, all negative.

    That pissed me off though. Nobody answers an advert to say they arent interested in the contract on offer. They ignore it. Unless of course they have good reason not to, in which case they will complain. Well if they had complained about me or Bea in some way as part of their refusal Hench would have gleefully heaped it upon me, so obviously his advert did nothing but rile the care sector who are underfunded, understaffed and overworked and already refusing to assist Social Services at a national level. I'm requesting that the advert and the responses to it be made available; as her care manager I should have been copied in as a matter of course.

    I also remonstrated with him about the neglect leading to Bea being injured and then treated more than once in care, and he denied all knowledge - which explains why DoLs are so ambivalent. They have been lied to, and have two conflicting stories, one from a Social Services manager, and one from an irate advocate with an unbelievable story that probably counters the manager's diametrically. What the DoLs Practitioner SHOULD do in this situation is apply to the Court of Protection for a ruling based on an assessment of the situation, but thats not possible until Keri has a recognised advocate in the form of a deputy, and they wont recognise me formally as in authority.

    I may have called Hench fucking useless - and to be fair he had a right to defend himself - but he blamed the carers that his organisation are responsible for, so they all got called fucking useless too. Then he tried his usual tack of blaming the economy, and the government got called fucking useless as well. I think he knew he wasnt on a winning streak, because he then switched to email.

    * https://hackaday.io/project/29260-obsidian/log/168245-madder-than-mad-jack-mcmad

    For the non-musical [ Hench is in fact an accomplished musician ] I should explain.

    6-8 refers to a time signature in musical notation. Most modern music is based on 4-4, a system where the timing is divisible by two's which makes it easy to dance to. 3-4 is pretty specialised and is heard mostly in Waltzes, and 6-8 is rarer still and most often found in Jazz... And nobody can dance to that nonsense lol.

    I think he liked the cussing better, because presently this appeared.

    Which put a stop to the emails until this morning, when I could call Disability Living Allowance who are a pain in the arse to get hold of.

    Yes folks, thats what an apology for being fucking useless looks like. He hasnt done a single thing that me, him, his manager and the housing agents agreed on so they'd get their money. I'm keeping my end of that bargain, and the agents backed up so rapidly there was a disturbance in local space-time.

    That explains then, why the District Council kept my tenancy open for 5 weeks after I signed the new lease and continued to raid my bank account for it, and you guys think I'm a Time Traveller. XD

    However, speaking to DLA when I finally got through was most revealing.

    Which all basically boils down to

    a) Bea is entitled to full Housing Benefit just through having the High Rate Care component, however she is also entitled to High Rate Mobility by the DoLs assessment of her behaviour and capacity that requires her liberty to be monitored.

    b) I am also entitled to my own DLA award because...

    Morning.Star09/04/2019 at 18:12 12 comments

    OK, I've rewritten it taking @salec 's kind comments into consideration.

    I'm sorry if this sounds like I'm stomping around, but I have to get the message across somehow and drawing on the awesome things you guys have said about and to me is really all I have.

    And now I dont fit through a normal door anymore. ;-p


    My name is Jez Boxall,
    although outside of the UK I’m better known as Morning.Star.

    I’m a carer, my eldest daughter Keri [Bea to her friends] lives with me because she has severe learning difficulties, but still wishes to live in the community rather than be literally locked up in a care home and largely ignored – worse, have all her property stolen repeatedly, and be neglected to the point of injury. That only happened because Social Services repeatedly kept attacking me, her carer and advocate, to try and institutionalise her anyway. I’ve been unfairly accused of everything from narcotics and alcohol to sexual abuse, and the charges dropped when Social Services couldnt provide evidence, overruled, sanctioned, thrown out of my home, defrauded by local authority, my reputation smeared and my work destroyed and finally been enslaved by a corrupt authority as a carer on benefits, unable to work or realise my potential, and unable to obtain justice for me and Bea.

    Since then I have been kept in poverty to prevent me getting legal assistance, on Income Support, and forced to do all the care work myself, unpaid, and against regulation – as an adult male I’m not really allowed to help with female personal care, but my daughter doesnt mind as I’m her dad. Its me who has issues with her walking around naked, and with her periods, and bathing, and, and…

    I should have a female carer come in daily to assist her, but Social Services are incapable of supplying one, and insist she’d be better off in a home. Under these conditions they may even be right, but Social Services created these conditions and I’m her dad so I wont betray the trust she has in me. Besides which, as soon as they have their hands on her I’ll be made obsolete and thrown onto the streets in debt, branded a failure, and unable to speak for her when she is again abused.

    However,
    I am also better known as Morning.Star [1] to the rest of the world. I have world records to my name [2], awards and accolades, and even things named after me [3]. I’m an influential member of an international organisation of makers called Hackaday [4], where I release my work and research into robotics and artificial intelligence, and computer engineering [5], and have fun taking things apart and making crazy new things out of the pieces. I also post my artwork [6], music, and musings on the world, and talk with some of the worlds most intelligent people - my friends, who I might add are disgusted with what I’ve had to endure in this country. But they are unable to help, merely watch in frustration. I’m known in 34 countries, not including the UK where I am just marginalised.

    I’ve been compared to Tesla, to Escher, to Turing, and to DaVinci in the last two years, also to Superman and Batman, Doctor Who, James Bond, and a few lesser known but equally legendary figures from modern culture too. And lately, my story has been described as Dickensian, which I’m not so happy about.

    I’m a multiple genius working across 7 distinct fields, and some of the things I have done are truly mindblowing. I built a tiny version of a popular geek toy that turned out to be the worlds smallest, so I made one half the size and have plans to build one half that size when I have the funds. The techniques I created and adapted for this piece have now been adopted into the maker community and restarted a trend of hand-built ‘Deadbugged’ electronics design, this time in miniature. And after Nintendo realised what a great idea making robots out of cardboard was, they took that and created Labo, and didnt even credit me (or Hackaday) for it, [7] despite the project giving me my name and reputation....

    Sometimes I actually wonder about the sanity of those in responsibility.

    Well, actually, more than sometimes. OK, I worry a lot.

    You've read my statement. If you've read more than that I thank you, because it was probably hard work, as was my statement. However, presented to a professional trained in psychiatry the results are unexpected.

    This is no exception.
    Of course I didnt give the woman a hard time, but there's a paragraph that is particularly telling.

    "I expressed that I didnt know the details of the case..."

    which was a lie, because she has my notes and knows the story. What actually happened is, the poor woman drew the Short Straw to phone me up and deny me treatment again. She also remembers me from before, when I rocked up in their offices with an armful of photos and links to my work to back up my story.

    Doctor Redacto once told me, "Get your daughter out of care and take over the world with your robits...' So, I did, and went back to find he'd been promoted out of the office. So I sat with his replacement, and this woman, and told them

    "OK. Done, and done. Whats next?" With a bunch of photos and links to my work to back up my story

    They looked at each other and threw me out untreated, and now refuse to support me because their remit is to help those with mental health problems, and according to them, I have none. What, not even suicidal thoughts due to being enslaved by the State in poverty?

    Thought not.

    What about all my work, and the attention that has received? Delusion? Hallucination?

    Not even mentioned.

    But the nail in their coffin is writing to Social Services requesting a face-to-face meeting to resolve some of these issues. I mean, what the fuck did she think I'd been doing for two years to make Obsidian [so extensive]?

    I'm actually wondering if hitting the papers is going to do anything other than make me a national disaster, and its not even me with the problems. Even Boris is getting away with publicly breaking our laws and abusing his seat of power for his own agenda, and that fat fuck's IQ is literally half mine. Probably less, and he's paid by the amount of hot gas he can pump per second as well.

    What the fuck am going to do now? I have a slim chance the DoLs practitioner will allow me access to a courtroom, but he could baulk and ignore me, and then I have no legal route out.

    I still have the papers, which as I said is more a threat than an actual vehicle - although I could use it as such, its true. Thats not what I'm after tho, Justice does not come from society, and thats a fact.

    And I also have Beautiful Soup, thanks to my dear friends on Hackaday, and a virgin legal framework thats never seen the likes of me before.

    I have access to a list of every single solicitor in the UK, complete with their email addresses, from the Law Society's site. The page has a requester to select arena of law, and locality, and then produces a list of links to profile pages of the solicitors containing their details.

    There is a fee for an advanced search, or one can simply click through the list to email the solicitor from his profile, which takes forever.

    Amateurs...


    Hackity hack, dont talk back.

    Perhaps DOXing the entire process will make them sit up and take notice.

    Morning.Star09/01/2019 at 07:38 4 comments

    I've written a Press Statement, which I will be sending to our national papers tomorrow.

    Coincidentally, I'm also due in Magistrates Court over non-payment of my Council Tax. Seeing as I have no legal representation, and the Council owe me 100 times that debt, I simply refused to pay until I was given a hearing where a magistrate will enforce it.

    I'm not bothered, I'll pay the Clerk of the Court the money I owe, and the court fees, before I go into the hearing where I will present the magistrate with my Press Statement.

    That should give me Jurisprudence I can use to push my case further legally as well as publicly.


    I’m the hacker known as Morning.Star

    And I’m exposing corruption in our social care systems and my local authority that runs all the way to the top. My story begins 19 years ago with my then partner, and my kids’ mother, attempting to kill me on 3 separate occasions during Bipolar episodes, which she suffered increasing regularly over our years together. She was never prosecuted as a result, and in fact was given counselling and therapy and allowed to stalk me and the kids for years while we hid in fear. Finally after 6 years of that and because Bea is profoundly disabled, Social Services intervened and gave me Respite, a service that they denied even existed, as they deliberately neglected me hoping I’d fail. I didnt of course, and managed another 8 years exemplary care during which time I built my first robots, learned to paint and play numerous instruments, and researched mathematics and physics. When I’d all but completed AIME, a humanoid biped, and AIMOS, its operating system

  • Bang To Rights

    Morning.Star08/20/2019 at 22:43 1 comment

    Hard written evidence is hard to come by, but every now and then...

    Unfortunately for Social Services, this document can only be commissioned by them, and attempts to subvert my authority as advocate so that the State could continue to hold Bea in care on an open-ended arrangement under advice of a doctor and an 'independent' advocate.

    Of course its unclear to the assessor why Bea is prescribed a contraceptive. It was done without my authorisation last time she was in care, and was done to prevent her becoming pregnant in the event of her having sexual contact with the male residents as well as to control PMT.

    She does not have the capacity for a relationship of that nature and should instead be supervised to prevent any unsolicited attempts by others to instigate one.

    It also conveniently controls the worst of the trauma her personal care causes me without having a personal carer - as an alternative to one, FFS, and its an abuse of rights to medicate someone to control their behaviour without a court order

    Or to put it another way, this shit was rushed through like lightning without my knowledge, let alone any authorisation.

    Like I said, on whose authorisation exactly is she deprived of her liberty?

    Its there in black and white.

    The first highlight is delicious.

    Bea has been assessed as having no capacity to make decisions or to communicate them, which is complete hogwash for starters. She knows what she wants and has been telling them, and me, for years. That IS why I was made her advocate in the first place.

    Unfortunately for DoLs, they now have to process MY request as her advocate that she has her case heard in court. She'll be present, but I'll speak for her. And for myself, as the representative the assessor deemed ineligible to speak for her. (The second highlight)

    I luckily phoned the care home while the assessor was there and managed to stop this dead in its tracks by speaking to her and informing her of the illegality of her actions.

    And just to rub salt in their wounds, both the DoLs team and the advocacy service now work for me against Social Services. Think about whats been done to me for the last 5 years.

    Deprivation of Liberty and marginalisation - In particular the advocacy service will be interested in giving me, well, advocacy, and on a legal basis. They have no choice as their remit is to ensure that all parties are heard in any dispute. And DoLs will probably fold under the pressure too, and they are a government agency. All they have to do is refuse me access to their services and I have them bang to rights as well.

    Note that the form is unsigned - it has been sent to me as the Care Manager instead of me as the Advocate, because Social Services lied to DoLs about my existence and their need for involvement.

    I can sign it myself and return it to the supervisory body and request that a hearing be scheduled using it, as her care manager and official advocate, and be given legal assistance to attend it.

  • Supercritical Mass

    Morning.Star08/15/2019 at 06:11 3 comments

    Critical Mass.

    In a nuclear reaction, the amount, and state of, the fissile material, is referred to as Critical.

    When there isnt enough material density - including such factors as temperature and pressure - the reaction cannot sustain itself and is Subcritical. With enough density, it self-sustains and 'burns', the kind of Critical reaction we typically see in a Nuclear Pile.

    Thats an interesting term, as the very first artificial reaction was performed using a literal pile of fissile material. And there are in fact four known burned-out natural piles in the Earth's crust, where significant amounts of radioactive material went critical at some point in its creation.

    A Supercritical Mass however is more like an explosion - the type of reaction that not only self-sustains but runs away with itself, ungoverned. We've done that too. Stupid buggers, and we're still paying for it.

    These terms are also used in other reactive systems to describe hysteresis.

    Hysterical.

    When Social Services fail to provide, and this is looking likely now, they will just surrender. They already have, but not formally.

    I do feel pity for my former enemies, but the kind of pity one feels for something that needs to be put out of its misery. Quickly, kindly, and without fuss. I dont however feel anything at all for the rest of Local Authority, and there is a Perfect Storm piling up on their doorstep held back by Hench, poor bastard.

    I havent even heard from Igor, and I expected him to mull that for a few days. There is always tomorrow, however, as his Modus Operandi is to leave it til the last minute, make a desperate phonecall on Friday afternoon and then get the fuck out of Dodge for the weekend.

    Meanwhile...

    The Housing agent distanced himself pretty thoroughly, and so my neighbour and I filed complaints with the Police about the latest almost-unbelievable turn of events. A stalker, and he's not even chasing me around. He's just some old weirdo who doesnt like women drinking coffee on their doorsteps in their dressing gowns, or children playing. In fact he seems to not like us Social Housing bums, and if he finds out what I'm into he'll probably have a coronary.

    He hasnt been keeping up with the digital revolution, thats for sure. Millennium Act, Digital Rights, and now the new anti-stalking legislation mean you cant just wave your new-fangled toy around like a child...

    The Police can deal with him, if Social Services wont. I'm not going to be responsible for putting him in hospital unless he happens to read about himself in the papers...

I was wondering the same just now after a brief cursory review.

@Morning.Star is my best friend and this page into his life is an example of how the social care system and housing in his country has been repeatedly failing his daughter and himself. Hacking/making/fixing is not restricted to electronics but applied to social system structure as well. Hope that helps a bit in understanding what is going on here as I see it.

@Dr. Cockroach likewise my friend. Yeah, thats a pretty good description. Its a redacted document chain, with commentary, a story grown so epic I have trouble believing it myself. So, next to my other work, it serves as a sort of ground in a bizarre twist.

I love irony, so virtualising the evidence for my unreal existence appealed to my sense of humour, and it helps me connect with it in the absence of decent psychiatric guidance.

It takes metal balls to tell a police officer you are a monstrous hacker, and then show him round your Secret Laboratory, festooned with robot parts, AI running in the corner, and a disabled adult with challenging behaviours in Reception. Bea loves our boys in blue, they are kind to her and respectful to me, but then I know a thing or two about metal balls as well as our laws and socio-economic systems.

Read in entirety this project documents the last two years in a 5 year war with my local government as they attempt to destroy me and my work, ruin my reputation and trample my and my daughters rights to hide its own fraud and corruption.

If I werent one of the worlds leading expert in robotics and AI and the UK's most influential hacker, they would just get away with throwing me on the streets in debt and institutionalising my daughter, which they have attempted on four separate occasions now. Each time I have caught them red-handed and exposed and documented it here in Obsidian, and linked to the 'protest art' for want of better words that are some of my other work and projects created specifically to Take The Piss in response.

As Doc said, it is one of the most outrageous hacks ever. Without access to our legal system and with but a handful of scrap and my wits, Ive made every agency that is complicit reveal the others involvement to save their own skins, but instead of taking action there and then I have collected it here, where it is evidence I can use of corruption.

Yeah, I hacked the UK government, and thats why this is here. And no, I didnt break any laws doing it, thats not how we do things around here. ;-)

Oh you are shitting me. I just looked into crowdfunding a solicitor and they even have me over a barrel there. I looked into the regulations that govern income to see if raising money charitably counts as it.

Currently the regulations are that on Income Support, anything I solicit is income so anything donated over £20 per week goes to the government up to the value of the benefit, and over a certain limit the benefits cut off. Gifts dont count, so I cant ask for donations, only receive them, and begging is illegal anyway.

On disability benefits anything over a certain limit triggers a cut off, but I can raise money say for equipment or services without penalty.

Basically what this means is I cant crowdfund a solicitor unless I get off Income Support, which is impossible because I'm a Council tenant. The rent pays itself all the time I'm on benefits, so as soon as I leave I have to cover Council Tax as well, and guess who decides which benefit I'm on?

The benefits agency, under advice from a doctor... Social Services are supposed to have no influence over this, but here medical ethics prevent that from happening by refusing the case when the doctor is no longer impartial. So I remain untreated for depression and the effects of stress and abuse.

Day after day this goes on. Unpaid slavery and theft if I work, censorship if I dont. All three are illegal, never mind the shit they already pulled. I've already been suicidal, left to cure myself and carry on with the knowledge nothing will change because I'm responsible for another life besides my own.

I should warn you that I've bounced off a truck, been poisoned, electrocuted, beaten, had migraines half my life, been homeless, faced bigotry, insults, a knife wielding maniac, and faced an entire panel of your experts before and won - how else would Bea be in my care after what I've been accused of - so you Andrew, are just annoying. OK very annoying, but you dont have what it takes to break me.

Sorry Sandra, your washing machine will have to wait until Thursday, because Bea is home tomorrow. As one of my old friends, you're quite comfortable about asking me to fix that. You know I will if I can, and ask nothing for doing it.

Have you thought about that, Andrew? It isnt just me I'm whining about when I say I cant use these hands of mine. Every piece a master piece, even a old piece of junk washing machine belonging to a friend.

It's bad enough you deny me that ability, and tell me everything else I do is worthless, and then you have the nerve to deny me support by compromising my doctor so she cant treat me? You're a worthless human being dude, you keep kidding yourself that being a social worker gives you Karma.

I know you'll never read this, fat old man shuffling past me on the way into town, but if if I'm a C*nt, then that makes you a useless, stupid, mouthy, old C*nt.

Lets have some perspective here.
