About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears, and have pretty much lost any faith I ever had in the British Justice/Tribunals system. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've had numerous interactions with the DWP, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. Over the last few years, I have endured a conveyor belt of shit decisions from HMCTS. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, Birmingham City Council, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................

I’ve noticed rumblings of soot falling down the chimney over the last few days. I’ve never experienced this before, and I’ve lived in my current house for several years. I reassured myself early on that there wasn’t a bird down … Continue reading

Tuesday 5th June 2018 – I Escalate My Complaint (re: Lack of Typed Records of Proceedings for ChB1, ChB2 & PIP1) To HMCTS Customer Service Team, 102 Petty France, SW1H 9AJ

The RECORD OF PROCEEDINGS is part of the appeal bundle, and as such, any written evidence produced by HMCTS or the Judiciary ought to be readable by parties such as myself. I have requested word for word transcripts of the RECORDS OF PROCEEDINGS for 3 of my appeals (2x ChB, & 1 x PIP (1st)). I still require them. Continue reading

A Judicial Roll Call – Encompassing 3 Years of (mostly) Judicial Failure, re: My ChB 2nd Appeal

I thoroughly dissect, and heavily criticise Judge J. Verman’s STATEMENT OF REASONS, especially as some of her rationale is distinctly at odds with her reasoning in the 1st ChB Appeal, though it inexplicably finds in my Ex’s favour again.  Continue reading

A Judicial Roll Call – Encompassing 5 Years of (mostly) Judicial Failure, re: My ChB 1st Appeal

How on Earth can Judge Blackett say my claim doesn’t raise an important point of principle or practice, when for several years HMRC/Child Benefit Office (& the CSA) have consistently FAILED  to contact the family of my daughter’s then-boyfriend to establish the material living arrangements for the material period, by insisting they are prevented by law from contacting such a “third party”!!!
