Conspiracy, coincidence or "just one of those things"?
What follows are FACTS. Conclusions, theories, ideas or suppositions we leave to you, the reader. All the following statements are backed up by documentary evidence.
Roy West was taken to court for alleged harassment of his two next-door neighbours, Mr Bernd Kugow, a photographer and author, and Mr Kugow's partner a Mrs Susan (Sue) Holt, Deputy Chief Executive of Tameside Education Business Partnership. Mr West was also ordered by the court to stay away from Councillor John Charles Taylor, the local Labour Councillor. In addition his partner, Ms Pauline Branson, faced eviction by their landlord. It is unclear who their landlord is, New Charter Homes ltd (a registered charity) or New Charter Housing Trust ltd but enquires at land registry indicates that the owners are New Charter Homes ltd.
Sue Holt ran her business from an office in The Old Courthouse Dukinfield. At the same time Tameside Sports Trust had their registered office in the same building. They also had Cllr John Taylor as a director. Another director at the time was Ian Hamilton Munro, Chief Executive of New Charter Group.
As well as advertising her offices in the Old Courthouse Mrs Holt also advertised her home address on the internet site www.tameside-sid.co.uk . The registrant for this site is Tameside council's corporate services. For someone allegedly intimidated by being mentioned on the internet she was very prolific in publicising her own details.
In July 2010 Greswell School in Denton was awarded the Gold Plaque for reaching the Investors in People Gold Standard. The Assessor was one Mr Bill Twiss, Chief Executive of Tameside Education Business Partnership. (See above.)
I have not even mentioned the police role in this sorry affair. The raids on Roy's home, the donation of £36,000 worth of motor vehicles and accessories to GMP from New Charter and New Charter getting the police contract for emergency boarding up of property raided by the police.
So there we have it.....conspiracy or coincidence? You decide.
