Youth unemployment – A social and economic time bomb waiting to happen.

15 Oct

Darren Batey

After attending another plenary session today looking at youth unemployment, I’ve found myself anxious about the focus on our future. It’s hard to tackle the issues of youth unemployment especially when the problem seems to be us.

There are many countries represented at the One Young World Summit (the largest representation after the Olympics) and after hearing many views on unemployment, I currently feel like I have been shocked in to a reality I wish I’d never been made aware of. However, I do believe that we need to know and realise what the ongoing issues are in this world so that we can ultimately lead for change.

Much of the debate was entrepreneurial focused and as much as I respect those speaker’s efforts, I believe there is a wider issue which Jeremy Lamri touched upon during his speech. “Entrepreneurial skills are important but if honest are only relevant to a…

EDL’s Bradford hate tour an overwhelming success for anti-fascists, a humiliation for the EDL.

Anti-Fascist Network

[reblogged from Bradford Anti-Fascist Network]

For all their bluster about Bradford being the BIG ONE less than 250 English Defence League braved the Yorkshire rain to try start their race war in the city. They didn’t stand a chance, the Police were out in force but so were the people of Bradford. Around a 150 went into the official demonstration area run by the UAF and were kettled there far away from the EDL but a similar number of Antifascist activists along with perhaps 300 other locals went into the streets to face the EDL and voice their anger at their city being invaded by these bigoted, racist, nut jobs. The EDL were drowned out as Anti-fascists and locals mocked their chants and raised their voices with their own. The streets of Bradford truly belonged to the Bradfordians and there was a festival feeling as even the cops couldn’t…

Jack Wilshere Debate: Can Foreign Football Players and Sports People Represent England or Other National Teams?

11 Oct

As reported in the media, Jack Wilshere, English football midfielder, 21, recently said: “If you live in England for five years it doesn’t make you English.” His comments were made in relation to the number of foreign players who currently play in English football and his (Wilshere’s) belief that ‘only’ ‘English-born’ players should have right to represent England in its ‘national’ football team. There are no immediate or further reports about whether Wilshere was also referring to the number of foreign players in English football in general. Though, one could argue; that this is clearly a reasnonable assessment of his views to make. His comments have sparked some debate about culture and national identities and equal outrage in both the media and society; particularly in relation to race and ethno-cultural relations; what being English and English identity actually means, and whether there are too many foreign players playing in English football.

Let’s break down and analyze Wilshere’s remarks shall we: “If you live in England for five years, it doesn’t make you English.” Wilshere was referring to the number of years it takes for a foreign player to be considered to represent the English national squad. It also makes clear that he believes no-one- whether a football player or not- can and should ever be permitted to call themselves English if they have lived in England for 5-years or less. From this, we can also reasonably assert that Wilshere has (his) personal views about the number of other ‘foreigners’ who were not born in England, but have settled in England and contribute to English society. His statements about ‘Englishness’ could be considered to be a rather nationalistic, in this respect.

In a way though, he is right… to some, limiting degree. The fact is, that living in England for 5-years does not necessarily make you English. Why? Firstly, one has to define and associate one’s identity (and national allegiances) as such. Secondly, one has to be accepted as being or identifying one’s self as English. However, because those who consider themselves ‘rightfully’ English- as Wilshere does- Wilshere says it is unacceptable and we (immigrants and foreign residents) cannot be- simply because of our birthplace. A rather xenophobic and hateful stance in my view. At worst, Wilshere’s remarks are indeed akin to xenophobia… in the least, a stupid and ill-considered rant. Far from attacking Wilshere, my view it that his stance clearly appears to me that of an individual who is either intolerant of immigrants and foreigners- who do not have equal rights to play national football in their resident or adopted country- or that he himself is struggling with his own identity issues because of the presence of foreigners in what he perceives to be his country. I will leave you to make your own minds up.

As with Wilshere’s view of residency and status; it still appears that there are many racist elements within English society; particularly within football, and from more intolerant sections of society, who clearly consider themselves as having more rights than immigrants who have adopted England as their home.

Sadly, we ‘foreigners’ and ‘immigrants’ can ‘only’ call oursleves ‘British’, because we are not permitted to call ourselves ‘English.’ Even that is a privilege for some of us. The important thing to remember, is that we are who we believe and assert ourselves to be; not who others (like Wilshere) say we are, and/ or would tell or attempt to dictate us to be. Wilshere, in my view, is a firmly in the closet of xenophobes, but hides himself from being open and direct!

The Differences and Perceptions of a Europe under Threat: Islamisation and Islamofascism in Context

5 Oct

In a constantly changing world and a post-modern Europe, the author, David LaBoon (2011) expresses the view that there exists a cultural and religious struggle to reterritorialize the European political and cultural space in response to globalization and increasing geopolitical issues and the shifting borders of Europe (p. 50). Indeed, there is a clear perception that the primacy of Eurocentric conceptions of identity; or Eurocentrism, are held as ‘universal or natural’ and perceived to be under attack from what is defined as the ‘Muslim problem’ or ‘Muslim other.’ It is clear that these perceptions are influenced by issues such as the global movement of people (immigration); the veil in the public space; acts of Islamist terrorism; and over a decade of international tensions arising from civil wars and Western invasions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The world media’s role has also ‘politicized’ perceived threats against European conceptions of group and collective identities, and pit the Christian ideology against Islamic, increasing tensions between the two, resulting in a ‘power struggle’ that has significantly harmed the space of intercultural dialogue and inter-religious relations. Even political, civil society, Far Right and cultural organizations have fanned the flames of difference. Individuals fight it out on social media, daily. It combines to whip a storm and set the scene for proxy wars based on the politics of identity.

This fear and hatred of East against West, is a self-perpetuating cycle of vicious atrocity after atrocity and endless violence and social, cultural and political hyperbole and scare-mongering by deluded knuckle-draggers on both sides. At its least harmful, it is blatant political rhetoric and manoeuvring and prejudicial tat-for-tat nonsense, that has pit community against community; government against government; and people against people. The cycle appears endless and doomed to destruction; because no-one has offered a viable solution to resolve the issues to bring about peace and understanding between the two, or appears willing to listen to the other side and the solutions and proactively work toward them. Thus, in order for Muslims to fit in with European and Western ideals of secularism, equality, and liberalism… it is maintained that ‘Muslims’ must adapt and conform to the legitimized European notion of national unity. In contrast, Muslims claim this is proscriptive and enforced abandonment of their cultural and religious identities; resulting in the rise of the Islamist movement, increasing politicization of Muslim presence and identity and also home-grown terrorists in Europe and the West. Many Muslims are hyper-sensitive about this and see themselves as the ‘victims’ and crusaders against Western totalitarianism.

Europeans fear the increasing presence of Muslim immigrants setting up homes in their green and once ‘white only’ communities, and unwanted changes to their traditional landscapes and architecture with the building of mosques and minarets. European communities have become increasingly intolerant of the Muslim presence and ascribe to the notion of B.A.N.A.N.A (building absolutely nothing, anywhere near anyone); because Islam is viewed as incompatible and not part of European society, values, or identity. If the building of a mosque is proposed, then it is immediately challenged through legislation or the planning process because the ‘minaret is (and shouldn’t be) higher than the church spire.’ The presence of Muslims and Islam are always challenged as being detrimental to ‘my’ sense of identity and what ‘I’ perceive to be ‘relevant, acceptable and tolerable to me.’ And so it goes… ‘I don’t like the clothes you wear, so you should dress like me if you wish be a part of this society.’ In much of Europe, this pathological and schizophrenic resentment of Muslims has encouraged governments to introduce laws that increasingly restrict the rights of Muslims, giving special protections to the rights of European communities and cultural values. For Muslims, this is an intolerable attempt to enforce conformity and marginalize their faith and identity. Coupled with US and European invasions and assaults on MENA countries, resulting in hundreds and thousands of needless Muslim deaths and clear evidence of torture and rendition; Muslims have responded with violent acts against Europe nations and governments and challenged the laws of governments they perceive to be intolerable and a threat to their civil liberties.

Neither Muslims nor Europeans are willing to accept the positive contributions of the other. Both constantly attack one another and believe they are under constant attack and that their freedoms, history and identities are being eroded by the presence of the other. Muslim terrorists have acted with extreme forms of violence and terrorist acts such as with the bombing of London in July 2005 and the crashing of two planes into the World Trade Center in September 2001. Europeans turn to violent protests and choose to burn down mosques, because they fear their presence and that of Muslims is polluting their society and slowly taking it over and that soon they will be powerless and forced to live under Sharia. Even before the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the retaliatory attacks of Al-Qaeda on Western society; Muslims and Europeans consider the other an invader. So the cycle of intolerance continues and there appears little sign of abating or of coexistence.

Indeed, Muslim terrorists are fascists of today, as the Germans and Italians were in the 20th century. Radical Muslim terrorists are intent on the destruction of Western society. But they will never succeed. In tackling radical Islam, Europeans should not fear the presence of peaceful Muslims who simply wish to settle and live in the abode of the West. It is Muslim fascists who despise Europe and the West for its perceived neo-imperialist efforts to control and profit from the Middle East and defeat Islam so that Western values hold social, cultural and political dominance on the world stage. These Muslims are Islamofascists and fascism is fascism, as neo-imperialism is capitalist with some elements of fascism. However, the largest and most persistent faction of fascism in Europe is the rise of the Far Right. But all forms of fascism should and will be routed out by governments and their security services. Islamofascism has little or no presence in Europe; it is largely present in Middle Eastern and African countries, as a counter-response to Western incursion into predominantly Islamic countries and persecution of Muslims in those countries.

That Muslims are increasingly settling in Europe, is contributing to the reshaping of European social, cultural and political landscapes and our identities in many ways. It does not mean that European identities and values are being Islamized, eroded or altered inalieniably. Issues of population control are separate to issues of identity and should not be used to demonize Muslims in Europe. Society’s values and identities are not stagnant and rigid. This notion of a de facto singular sense of European identity is rather Cartesian in its concept and has already been debunked. The fact is, we all have many identities and they are always changing. These changes in society, our values, population and our identities are inevitable and increasingly due to the effects of globalization. Whether Muslim or Christian, we all have a right to protect our identities, values and beliefs. No-one has the right to suppress the other, or impose one identity on another. That Europeans perceive European identity as being Islamized is now part of a condition of known as block-thinking, in that the condition of perceived Islamization is paralyzing coexistence between East and West. If any part of Europe is being Islamized, it is largely Muslims who it effects and only affects Europeans if they become reactionary toward the presence of Muslims or wish to convert to Islam themselves. If European identities are in crisis, then it is because of religious abandonment, shifting global power dynamics and the decline of old imperialism. The core issue is not about the erroneous belief in the Islamization of Europe, but flexibly reimagining European identities in a new global context and not allowing the debate of Muslims in Europe to become polarized by inward-looking, religious and cultural agendas insistent on self-preservation. To do so, only serves to further the extremes of European and Muslim fundamentalism and mutual hostility.

Golden Dawn: Greek Fascists and Murder

4 Oct

 

 

 

 

 

Image

There is absolutely no doubt that Golden Dawn is a fascist organization and just one of many Far Right groups across Europe that appear to be on the increase. Its history dates back to the 80’s when it was established by a group of Far Right supporters with military junta connections and who launched Chrysi Avgi magazine. The current Golden Dawn ‘party’ is evidently nationalistic and racist in its membership, following the ideals and admiration of Hitler and has 18 seats across the Greek parliament. Golden Dawn’s infamy has come to prominence in the world press after the assassination (by one or more of its members) of the rapper, Killah P.

Killah, whose real name was Pavlos Fyssas, was murdered because of his views and activities in protesting against the growing fascist sentiment in Greek society. As a consequence, the Government has been forced to act and has made a number of high-profile arrests of Golden Dawn’s membership, including several members of parliament and the party’s Head, Nikos Mihaloliakos. The BBC reports that Nikos Mihaloliakos has been remanded and that several other members have been charged or released on bail (with conditions).

In a recent blog I came across its author, Simon Darby, contests that the Greek government are ’rounding up at gunpoint’ Golden Dawn members and that this is a form of fascism? Oh, please, Simon Darby! Really? Are you serious? Rounding up those who are believed responsible for murder and corruption- at gunpoint- is fascism now? How do you suggest the police go about arresting individuals they believe to be violent extremists… with a pair of pink furry handcuffs and a ‘please come with us’?

Darby also tells us that Golden Dawn are hardly the BNP. Does he have first hand knowledge of this? Is this an admission that the BNP is far worse, Simon? I suggest they are the same in their fascist views and as abhorrent as each other. Fact is, Simon Darby is acting like an apologist for the Far Right. Self-evident, really (See my note below). Darby rambles on about how he believes the Greek government itself is illegitimate and ‘a totally corrupt and discredited regime.’ No, Simon, that was the previous government and Greek society in general. This Greek government- despite its faults, including any current corruption there may be and the diversity of political opinions of its parliament- is in fact a reforming government. Albeit, a government that is being squeezed by the EU and Germany into slashing public spending and instigating massive reforms to taxation and internal markets.

The ‘swindle’ and ‘greedy corporate/banking tyrants and a criminal ruling class’ Darby refers to are not this Greek Government. This Greek government has been elected to undo the damage of years of corruption, tax avoidance and criminality by all Greeks. Simon Darby already knows that Golden Dawn is a well documented, violent, facsist organization. No such organization or any individual proselytizing any such views has a rightful place in any inclusive, tolerant society or government. If Simon Darby is implying otherwise, I suggest he take a look in the mirror and think back to World War II. Never, ever, again, Simon Darby! Never!

A note to readers of this blog: Simon Darby is himself a member of the fascist British National Party.

An Email to Ambrosine Chetrit: Detailing Her Lies and Smear Campaign About Me and Others

2 Oct

@RealMrsShitrit, aka Hasbaroid troll, Ambrosine Shitrit of @YadbYadUK just doesn’t know when to drop it and move on, so here is another email I have had to send her as a final warning.

Note: The email below has also been sent to a very helpful DC at the Met police.

Sent on 18 June 2014

Subject: CEASE AND DESIST NOTICE

from: Jason Schumann

2:51 PM (1 hour ago)

to: ambrosine, bcc:

Ambrosine,

Smearing me again??

Yes, I am fully aware that you and Nick the Toad have been suggesting on the twittersphere that I am @PreventW.

However, you know this is entirely untrue, yet it suits you to continue with your campaign to silence your critics and those of Israel, such as I am.

The only reason you are doing this, is in the pathetic and malicious attempt to goad Shaista Gohir to go to the police to make what would be an entirely false report about me.

I say to you again, @PreventW is NOT me, nor do I know who is behind the account.

I am asking and strongly suggesting that you desist and move on from our past disagreements, you pernicious and evil troll.

If you continue with your smearing of me and efforts to silence me, I will go to the police again, and this time, I will bring criminal charges against you. I will also bring a civil suit against you. And, believe me, the dirt I have on you, I give my word I will bankrupt you and your family.

Please NOTE: I have bcc’d this email to an officer in the Met. I am also publishing this email on my blog about you, alongside the other emails that I have published on it.

Make sure you pass this on to the Toad, Andrea and Sheryl. Oh, and remind Toad, I still have screen shots of him saying that he intended to visit my home and attempt an assault on me.

For the last time, stop your smearing of me and jog on!

Sincerely,

Jason Schumann

Further to today’s smears by Ambrosine Shitrit, here is an updated response to the depths of her relentless campaign to silence others in an email sent to her on 13 December 2013 at 18:00:

Here is a link to Mrs Shitrit’s smears and attempts to obfuscate compliance with the EU Data Protection Directive as the proprietor of a website processing personal data: http://t.co/0JIi2K3Q4c

Dear Mrs Shitrit,

I have today learnt that you have made several serious and defamatory accusations against myself.

First, you have accused me of misusing your personal data. This is clearly untrue and a serious allegation, for which I request a full apology and retraction from you.

As has been made clear to you on previous occasions, your personal details, including your home address, email and phone number, are freely available online and can be located here: http://who.is/, for example.

As you can see, the link clearly provides confirmation that you are the registered domain owner of yadbyaduk.com and how that person can be contacted. Insofar as I am aware, it is a legal requirement (by international intergovernmental agreement) that all registered website/ domain owners have their registration details made available in the public domain.

Therefore, any suggestion by you or one of your cohorts that I have published or misused your personal data, is clearly unfounded and a blatant and malicious attempt by you to smear my name and character. I am also aware that you have used this same tactic against Tell MAMA which, again, is a further example of the depths of your wickedness and attempts to discredit decent, right and proper individuals who truly make an active and positive contribution to society and social difference.

I am given to understand that your accusations may stem from the fact that you may have received communication from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office regarding YadbYad’s compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and malicious and unlawful collection and processing of personal data. If this is true, that you have received communication from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office regarding such matters, that I, myself, am aware that you have previously maliciously reported Mr Mughal, Mrs Brown and Mrs Cook to CST, making false and libellous accusations that these individuals are in any way antiSemitic, is clear and definitive proof that YadbYadUK is indeed processing personal data unlawfully and for malicious purposes.

I would remind you, that the Data Protection Act places a requirement on organisations, institutions, public authorities and companies to process data lawfully and sensitively. I say again, clearly, as you are the registered owner of the YadbYadUK website, you have not done so. I would also add, that you, via the YadbYadUK Twitter account, have tweeted that visitors to the site are required to login. What information they must provide in order to do so, I do not know. What I do know, is that this is further evidence of data collection by YadbYaUK, with no mention of how such information is stored, used or processed.

Any suggestion that the UK Information Commissioner’s Office, as per a tweet from the Yad account tweeted earlier today, has obtained your personal details unlawfully, is preposterous and ought to be fully retracted.

Regarding the Yapbyapuk account, I confirm to you now herein this email that I have nothing to do with this account and I do not nor have I ever had access to it. Here again, you continue to behave in a malicious attempt to defame and smear decent individuals.

Please consider this your final warning, as you are again requested to cease and desist from such smears with immediate effect.

Sincerely,

Mr Schumann.

Email Regarding Email Mrs Shitrit’s Smear Campaign, dated Wednesday, 2 October 2013 14:49:

Dear Ambrosine,

Yesterday evening, you or one of your cohort had my twitter account suspended simply because I called you all out for your lies and hypocrisy and swore at you, due to your constant efforts to smear and discredit myself and others.

I do not know whether it was you who was on the YadbYad account yesterday at that particular time, but I do have several screen grabs confirming a ‘mass block and report’, to have my account suspended. I have no doubt that you are the one who instigated this harassment against me, as you own (and set up) the YadbYadUK Twitter account and you are the named registrant of the YadbYad website. You and Sheryl McNaught both claim to be pro free speech, but then you have me mass blocked?? Because I challenge you? What vile hypocrites you both are!

Do you remember when you (both) accused me of being Richard Armbach and got one of your lapdogs to phone my home and threaten me, pretending to be from CST? Yes, I do. I (subsequently) contacted CST and they confirmed it was not them or me. Sheryl has since tweeted to me that it was (all) a joke? Well, I didn’t not find it a joke. That is why I returned to twitter. So, all the shit I now bring you, is of your own making.

Not only have you actively attempted (to) threaten and to put a stop to mine or anyone else’s freedom of speech who challenges or disagrees with your view, but you persist in labelling (myself and others) as sexist, racist, antiSemitic and rapists. None of which is true, of course. But it suits you to repeat such claims and accusations, especially because of your (MrsShitrit’s) libel case with TellMaMa (and its Director).

Speaking of which, I have no doubt it is true that you have libelled (the Director of) TellMaMa, because I have screen capped some of your libellous tweets referring to HNH and TellMaMa as having links with terrorist organisations. In the case of Sheryl, your comrade; on no less than eight occasions did she libel TelMaMa. I know this because I screen grabbed every single tweet and passed on to TellMaMa’s Director. The only reason Sheryl isn’t now being sued, is because she cried poverty and claimed she is in receipt of state benefits. My assumption is that a cost benefit analysis was (conducted) as to whether the cost of (legal) fees would outweigh (the) damages she would have to pay.

Returning to your references and labels of me being sexist, racist, antiSemitic and a rapist; your statements are (not only) factually untrue, (but) damaging to me and therefore libellous. As such, you will from this moment on CEASE and DESIST from referring or making (such) statements about me (…..). If I see one more tweet from you, Yad or your cohorts even suggesting that I am any of these things, I will bankrupt you and your family. On that, you have my solemn word. Note: I NEVER break my word!

In reference to claims that I am a rapist or threaten rape, you are well aware of the circumstances. You know full well that I was trolled, and continue to be trolled by multiple twitter accounts (relentlessly) to this day; that my personal data has been published on various websites and that my family have been harassed. You also know full well that the comment of rape was deliberately taken out of context and used to smear me. You know I am homosexual and as a ‘gay, married man’ (as I am), I cannot commit an act of rape against a woman and no court of law would ever pursue a case against me (nor have I ever had any contact from the police about), because (it) is clearly not feasible that I could even contemplate committing such an act. You are also aware that I was active with the fbrape campaign and continue to support @EverydaySexism.

That you constantly call me sexist is also wrong and again intended to smear me. You do so quite deliberately, in the sad hope it will somehow help you in your defence of the libel claim brought against you for your smears of TellMaMa (and its Director).

Yes, I swear; but when I do refer to someone as a bitch, I use it against both men and women. In your case, I believe you are a schemer, hateful, conniving and spiteful. I do so because your behaviour is abhorrent and so is that of others (like you). Notice I only use such terms when someone is attacking me online, spreading untruths and misinformation, being malicious or spouting offensive racism.

Re (your claims of me being) racist, you know I am black. Therefore, I can only be racist or prejudice in the same (way) as racism, if the person is not black. My reference to Chris Brown, to which you refer to accuse me of racism, was an angry comment I made because, as (he is) a man who beats women, makes him worthless in my eyes. It shames me therefore that he denigrates my (heritage), (my) community (and the struggle and hate my community have experienced throughout history). This is clearly not racism and you, Sheryl and others (know it, but) have deliberately taken this out of context and used to your advantage (in attempting to smear and discredit).

In fact, it is you who is the racist. Your reference to ‘Tutu being antiSemitic’, ‘Damilola Taylor’s father being on the gravy train’, ‘Mandela being a terrorist’, ‘steering clear of Muswell Hill after the racist arson attack (because of the Muslims and antiFascists who might be protesting there)’, suggesting ‘Guantanamo is a good idea’, joking about ‘(a) Palestinian being killed by a rock that bounced off a car’? Yes, you are (the) racist (not me!) and I have all the tweets to confirm this. You also call me antiSemite? Check my surname, hon. (It is Jewish; as was my Black, S. Afrikan Grandfather!) Yes, I call you a Zionazi; because you are a zealous nationalist, who is intolerant of anyone who is not Jewish and does not agree with you. You have even applauded maiming, death and torture in your tweets. That you would allow the torture, imprisonment, displacement and subjugation of Palestinians makes you a Zionazi. That you libel Lee Jasper (Yes, I made him aware!) and that you suggest Mehdi Hassan has contacts with Hamas, clearly makes you the racist and a Zionazi. You are clearly an intolerant, rightwing nationalist… in my view. Your associations with Geller, Murray et al confirm this. I am only intolerant of haters, such as yourself, which is why I swear at and challenge you. You seriously need to check yourself and have a long, long look in the mirror.

Oh, and what about your media campaign to discredit HNH and TellMaMa? Yes, I know you instigated everything in the press; as a direct consequence of the libel proceedings issued against you. Raheem and Marcus have both confirmed as much. Not only this, but you then write to CST accusing Ev of being antiSemitic, which you then leak to @_NewseXtra and is published online and you do not even have the decency to retract? You are so lucky Ev isn’t suing you, because you are truly vile and disgusting, which is why I pity you so much! Claiming you were hacked and reporting TellMaMa to the police for it? Pfft! Absolute bollocks, you lying bitch! I pulled your details from a web search.

You should know that I will be airing a radio show about you and YadbYad and what you have done and how malicious you are. It will be entirely factual and based on your own tweets, that I have screen grabbed. You are welcome to come on and defend yourself… just reply to this email.

One last thing, as YadbYad is an organisation, i) can you please confirm whether it/ you are registered under the Data Protection Act to collate personal data; ii) what data you hold about me; iii) if and to whom you have disclosed mine and others’ personal data and; iv) whether you have sought consent to hold others’ personal data YadbYad hold?

Feel free to inform your solicitor of this email. I would love to see you in court 🙂

Look forward to hearing you.

Kind regards,

Jason Schumann

Addendum: New Email to Ambrosine Chetrit, dated Thursday, 3 October 2013 14:30:

Dear Ambrosine,

Here’s is the blog link to the email I sent you: https://debatingculture.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/an-email-to-ambrosine-chetrit-detailing-her-lies-and-smear-campaign-about-me-and-others/

I have made a couple of amendments/ additions, which is why a tweet linking the blog was deleted.

You are free to ignore or take what ever action you feel necessary. I am quite happy for you to pass on my details to your lawyer; but it won’t get you anywhere, because I have not said any thing that isn’t true.

Your right to reply stands and I am happy for you to defend yourself and YadbYad on my blog and my radio show. Your choice.

What you do not have a choice in, is my request for you to confirm whether YadbYad is registered under the DPA98, which is a legal requirement for any organisation collating any data in which an individual is personally identifiable. Please therefore respond to questions already set out in my initial email below. If you fail to do so, I will be lodging a complaint against you and Yad with the UKICO.

One last thing; I don’t mind you insulting me or calling me names but don’t you, Sheryl or anyone who operates the YadbYad twitter account, EVER call me sexist, a rapist, paedophile or racist, EVER!

I trust I have made myself clear?

Enjoy your day!

Kindest regards,

Jason Schumann.
