A skills-based win

Apparently my business skills and economics, business based set of qualifications, gained in various specialist schools both in Germany and Britain and my great ability to do accounting, are probably responsible for my most recent win of a complaint to the Housing Ombudsman.

I have run my own business for 10 years. I had been a company director.

They were just finding for me because they obviously looked at the accounts of the local social landlord e.g. council and from the accounts they could determine what had and had not taken place.

There is always room for basic logic to be successful in many walks of life.

Where is my MP?

My local MP is Rushanara Ali. I have seen her giving interviews to the local newspaper but all my correspondence has stopped with her.

Is it that all local MP’s suddenly dropped all their cases?

The Housing Ombudsman expects people who have unresolved matters to discuss to have an 8 week cooling-off period, during which people are expected to mediate their cases with the help of councillors or members of Parliament.

So far I have not even had my old cases resolved and I have heard nothing from my MP.

Especially in a Labour run borough, with a Labour MP, you would expect that local services do actually communicate with their subjects.

I have tried to discuss the situation with my local Labour Councillor, who apparently also is in charge of Housing in the borough, but he has flat out refused to get involved.

I don’t think you can just let everything slide because of Corona Virus. It seems that the Labour position is to keep everything closed just to ensure nothing happens.
