UGLY SIGHT IN HIGH COURT YESTERDAY. Haringey Council & Lend Lease line up against poorest tenants

27 October 2017

THE UGLY SIGHT IN THE HIGH COURT YESTERDAY. 

HARINGEY COUNCIL WERE HAPPY TO BE SUPPORTED IN UK COURT BY LEND LEASE,  AUSTRALIAN INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY DEVELOPER WHO PAID $56 MILLION TO AVOID PROSECUTION FOR CORRUPTION IN THE USA. 
 
THEY BOTH HAVE DEEP POCKETS. THEY LINED  UP THEIR LAWYERS AGAINST THE DEFENCE,  BY GORDON PETER'S  LAWYERS AND THE CROWD FUNDERS OF HARINGEY,  OF THE COUNCILS TENANTS, LEASEHOLDERS AND SOME INDEPENDENT FREEHOLDERS.   
 

My point is win or loose yesterday's case Haringey Council must ditch Lend Lease in the name of JUSTICE & HUMANITY.

Northumberland park, council leaseholders and tenants and some freeholders are among the first in the firing line FOR DEMOLITION. 
 
A Freedom of Information request by The Observer, published last month, suggested that half of all council tenants already on Universal Credit, in 105 councils, were at least a month behind on rent, compared with less than ten per cent of council tenants on housing benefit. 
 
Haringey is ALREADY on Universal Credit. If claimants are moved because their home is to be demolished their rent will increase and their council tax go up at least one band. Northumberland Park households will be offered compensation to move; it will be taken back by the council to to pay off inevitable rent and council tax arrears.   
  ​
The information about maternity in The London Borough of Haringey was updated in February 2​017.
​ 
You will see that the ward of Northumberland Park at nearly 11% has the highest rate of low birth-weight in the borough; it is also the most deprived ward in the borough. Haringey Council intends demolishing 800 council tenancies​/leaseholds​ in Northumberland Park
​. ​
 ​Professor Michael Crawford, Director of the Institute for Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, comments ABOUT HARINGEY LOW BIRTH-WEIGHT . ​

That is Appalling - 11% It is third world data. Good to alert us of this sickness, 1950 it was 6% or there abouts across the country and that was not good. Scandinavians run around 3%.

​ It is viciously sad as it will be the tip of an iceberg which breeds ill-health and especially mental ill-health. It is even sadder when you reckon we know what to do about it and prevent low birthweight. It would be interesting to know what prop​ortion were born below 3,000g.  That is the point at which mortality and morbidity noticeably begins to climb and some consider it a better marker. The lowest region for disorder is 3,500-4,500.  I will bet that more than 50% in that region are born below 3,000g. in our studies poor, maternal nutritional status as measured by 8 key nutrients, goes sep wise downwards from 3,200g, Above that there is no desirableness relationship between nutrition and birthweight. 

Below it there is a straight line down! Moreover Wendy Doyle and colleagues showed that the relationahsip was independent of social class, income,  smoking or ethnicity. If a woman had a nutrient intake comfortable with the present recommendations she produced a healthy birth weight baby. If her nutrition was lacking then whether or not she was a rich WASP and non smoker, her risk of a low birthweight baby is high! By contrast, a low income Hackney mother but one who had learnt about the significance of nutrition, (DOUBTLESS FROM HER OWN MOTHER)  met the requirements, then she would have a healthy birthweight.

 
This is my blog for the Equality Trust showing how the ​ single  adult unemployment benefit ​ of £73.10 a week​  has been losing value since 1979.  Haringey Council has enforced 
council tax ​against unemployment benefits since 2013. ​ Since 2013 the benefits being taxed by Haringey have been shredded by central government.​  20,000 Haringey residents
​ a year ​fall into ​CT ​arrears ​and are taken to court. The bailiffs ​were ​are sent out 11,000 times ​ in 2016/17​ to collect CT. Mostly to poor households.
 
The costs added to the CT arrears are;
​                                                                                        
                                                                                                   £​
Liability order issued by the Magistrates Court                 115
Bailiiffs admin fee                                                                   75
Bailiffs visit, any number,                                                     235
Bailiffs  visit to collect goods to sell to pay off  arrears    110
TOTAL added to arrears                                                      £535   
 
Since 201​3​ ​pregnant ​ women ​suffer from no ​income for weeks, ​or even months, ​provided by the State or an employer, if they are on a zero hours contract, have a three months sanction imposed by the jobcentre or are moved on the Universal Credit.  
 
There are record evictions, record numbers of families in temporary accommodation and record numbers of rough sleeper​s​.
 
JSA 73.10 pw has lost value since 1979 pays council tax enforced by bailiffs not enough for a healthy diet before pregnancy that science demands
 
​Meanwhile the bailiffs are sent out to enforce council tax by Haringey Council's computer totally ignorant as to whether the household to be intimidated 
includes a pregnant woman has had their income stopped by a three month benefit sanction, a zero hours contract ​or the Universal Credit . It is an inhuman system run mostly by computers, 
 
This is the kind of pressure Newlyn's bailiffs apply against impoverished households at the request of Haringey Council.  This is a string of calls on mobile phone to one household.
