UK: legal needs of disadvantaged groups

April 27, 2011 at 9:59 pm 1 comment

Rosaline Sullivan of the Legal Services Board conducted a literature review of the legal needs of disadvantaged groups. Groups at a disadvantage are “low income consumers in comparison to high income consumers; adults with mental health problems; adults with long-standing ill-health and disability;  ethnic minorities; refugees and asylum seekers; the elderly; young people; lone parents and prisoners.”

The review reports that incidence of justiciable problems varies according to income but there is no positive correlation between income and incidence of legal problems. People with exceptionally low income and those with high income experience more problems. There is difference, however, in the types of problems. Rich experience more consumer problems whereas the poor experience more problems with welfare benefits. Knowledge of legal rights is reported to be positively correlated with income – 68,9% of the low income respondents report that they do not know their legal rights versus only 54,6% of the respondents from the highest income bracket. Consequently, those with lower income were more likely to do nothing as response to a legal problem.

    Yes…. Please do …pass this on to the proper Ministers… Whom Will and MUST Enforce the LAWS on everyone that Willfully,Knowingly Commits CRIMES, and BREACHES the Rules of Proper Judical Proceedures…

    This LAW must be applied to ALL Whom Fail to Comply …. The LAWS are very Clear… There are know persons be it Judges, Lawyers, Officers of the Courts that are aloud to Commit Crimes….. Or Breach, Break the Rules of Civil, or Judical proceedures…to the extent that it Willfully, Knowingly causes unjust, and commits a Crime….or Crimes…. that result in causing me, others DAMAGES, Loses, Lost Jobs, Lost Wages, lost livelyhood…and so much more… and the direct impact thereof has Herifically incured, created countless HARDSHIPS, and unwanted stresses, poor health, pain and unneeded and unexceptable suffering to say the least.. because of these ongoing Crimes.

    I have been trying to resolve these SAME ongoing legal Issues since 1993,94, on going…

    And I have been repetedly by Lawyers, & Judges….. delayed, adjourned, postponed,refused to return before the Rule 39 Clerks repetedly since 1999, after I was fired from my very good Jobs working for Magna Int, for almost 5 very hard years..training to become a Millright

    I then was fired for being absent from my work,job duties.. repetedly forced to attend the Newmarket Courts, by X’s lawyers Karen D. Mitchell, & associates.. Whom failed to bring thier files, failed to serve me NOTICES on time prior to the hearing dates, I recieved The NOTICES 3 days after the hearings took place, then the motion records, were left on my door steps just only hours before the trial hearing was to begin. then the sworn Court Documents and Sworn Affidavits of Services that were STAMPED by the Newmarket Court Clerks, & Registrar, was falseified, and changed to a un-true date of 3 days prior to it really being left on my front door step at 5:45 pm the evening before the TRIAL hearing was to proceed, And then The Judge R Boyko Refused me my trial day in Court and Covered it ALL up , The Judge R Boyko said to me the trial date is Now canciled, and that she would NOT even give me a new date to resolve the countless MISSCARRIAGES OF DUE-JUSTICES, and Countless Acts of Missadministrations of Due-Justice.. THY ALL Failed to be ready to proceed and as the direct result thereof I was fired from my good Magna jobs…

    The Judge Boyko told me I had to meet her, Mitchelle,X in the private Judges chambers where the Judge told Me I had No rights to anything, That my X and Karen D. Mitchell was going to have everything just the way they wanted it to be, and the Judge Boyko was going to pretend that ALL the misscarriages, and missadinistrations of Justice, that took place, Just do NOT COUNT, The Corupt, & unimpartial Judge Boyko dose NOT seem to care much about being a party to Crimes and to Pergery, changing sworn Court Affidavits, to False and untrue dates.. these CRIMES are it Seems OK for Lawyers and Judges to commit to… and Cover up…ALL Actions thereof.

    BUT I FOR A HONEST TRUE CANADIAN, and Like MANY OTHERS.. CAN NOT AND WILL NOT LET THIS GO ON …..UNPUNISHED.. These Actions do deserve the Maximum Pentalties to be rendered on these Criminals… that have committed these CRIMES. I WANT THE HONEST HELP and Assistance OF The Ministers OF JUSTICE and ALL M.P.P.’s to see that these CRIMES DO NOT SLIP AWAY, and Go un-punished… Because these CRIMES have Herifically caused me Huge DAMAGES, Loses… My Jobs… my wages.. my livelyhood..& caused me poor health, huge STRESSES, and pain, suffering, and so much more.. ongong to this date, as they have been compounding Actions.. and nothing less than OBSTRUCTIONS OF DUE JUSTICE…. And a Clear HUGE Violation of OUR Rights and Freedoms, and Rules of ALL proceedures..as by LAW…and by THE JUSTICE ACT..

    Hi…. I’m sorry I could not get out to my library sooner my back has been very bad, and i have been resting ,taking pain killers
    I have very bad painfull lower back injuries, and compressed nerves at disks 4, 5, is very painfull I can not even bend or stand up for long many days.. and it seems to vary a lot, when I cough or sneeze it hurts a lot.. it seems very hurniated… painfull..

    Yes I will call you from the resources centre phone on Friday,at 11;00 am there are several SBT Appeal No’s 0904-03324,& 1006-05953
    I first applied for disability in 2000 when my back, arm injuries became weres… I then had several ongoing lower back injections…. and arm, elbow injections of crotizones….. it helped for a while, but still very painful and very hard to work or bend, I could not even bend to put on my socks. shoes, or clothes… it has been very hard for me to do things…. I find my self strugling ….to do things it takes soo long to do them… They did Grant me ODSP after countless Appeals and years of delays, but then they OW re Appealed that ORDER of september 14th 2008, B/4 a different SBT arbitrator whom was very unfair, and unImpartial, and even kept yelling at me and cut me off when I was explaining the FACTS… to her, she said she did NOT want to hear any more, and cut me off, from giving the FACTS several times, then cut the hearing off, NOT letting me finish up my oral eviedence, Facts ……

    I have tried to get lawyers to help, but they all want huge amounts of money to help, that I do NOT have..
    I tried the York Region Leagal Clinic’s they started to help me, but then were told by legal aid Newmarket a Ms. C.Y. Kitchen the area part time director, to NOT HELP me any further… They told me to get legal opinion letters I tried to, from a Lawyer Mr. Patrick Gaffney on Bayview Ave in Newmarket, it was to be a 2 hr. charge of fees for the legal Opinion letter, He charged, billed legal Aid well over 24 hrs for his fees for the opinion letter, that I never ever got or seen , he sent it to the Lindsay ON. Legal-aid office, they sent it to Oshawa legal-aid office, I went to both to get a copy, they both said they did NOT have it, they had sent it onto Newmarket legal Aid offices,
    I never have seen it to this day, The lawyer Mr. P. Gaffney was to assist me and complete my Appeals and perfect them for me, thats what the the other 21 hrs was to be used for.. to complete and Argue my Appeals the I started back in 2002 and 2003, so I have been repetedly denied, delayed. OBSTRUCTED, postpoded… my RIGHTS TO DUE- JUSTICE… and to RESOLVE theese ongoing matters…

    I sure hope you can help me,, this has been a nightmare, and just abuesive…to say the least…

    Sincerely, Richard G. Jukes…
