Council members who fail to investigate fraud are not doing the job they were elected to do, and become party to institutionalised conspiracy to hide the truth - a breach of the Fraud Act 2006.




Robert Standley, Leader of the Council   Vs    Local inventor accused and convicted despite innocence


Councillor Robert (Bob) Standley (left) - A team player? Yes. Because any elected official has to be to scale the mountain. But does that extend to covering up the inconvenient truth, or are the officers pulling the wool over his eyes?  Nelson Kruschandl (right) - is a victim of council discrimination, Human Rights violations and other (possibly Masonic) abuses. This appears to be institutionalized, where all departments of WDC were put on alert to cover up past lies - and that implicates all of the staff that go along with it. We were expecting to see a reply from Mr Standley, but instead Kelvin Williams replied. What has Kelvin Williams got to do with hiring staff? See another letter to Cllr Standley on that issue below dated the 1st of February 2014.

Councillor Robert Standley in front of the den on iniquity that is this corrupt administration has become. Any council that knowingly continues to employ staff that have lied to the public, to the courts and falsified evidence, must sack those people and report their offences to the authorities. If any council does not, it becomes party to those crimes. 







Dear Councillor Standley,


As a member of a council responsible for a great many historic towns and villages, and also caretaker of the public purse, could I ask you to be especially vigilant against maladministration within the Wealden District Council.


It is my experience that your council has allowed some departments to run riot with taxpayers money.  Some officers have used council resources for their own goals and as a playground for acts of impropriety, sometimes to cover up mistakes, and other times to pursue agendas for profit or personal ambitions and desires.


Your officers have persistently lied to government planning inspectors concerning The Old Steam House in Lime Park. [now Herstmonceux Museum]


It took me more than 20 years to reach an understanding with your council about the Generating Station at Herstmonceux, then having signed a Court Order by way of Agreement, accepting that the buildings are historic and that your officers deceived the Secretary of State, they then breached that contract and once again denied everything.


You must know that this is a serious breach of my Human Rights - discrimination run wild. It looks to me as though this may be to allow a resident in Lime Park to purchase the historic buildings at an undervalue - which of course constitutes fraud under the Fraud Act 2006. I recall that David Phillips was in written communication with solicitors to Peter and June Townley, residents in Lime Park for many years, suggesting that they might benefit from use of these historic buildings - clear discrimination. What was wrong with my occupation? Why should any person have preference to another?


I hope you agree that we cannot afford to let situations like this go unchecked. It is the duty of every law abiding member to report suspected crime within their council. Should any member not report suspected crime, then they become party to that crime and vicariously liable.


You were elected to represent the community, not the officers.  You were elected to run the council to the best of your ability, and to stamp our corruption and discrimination - a clear violation of my rights and a Human Rights abuse using a position of authority - which makes it all the worse.  It is your duty to conserve the historic built and natural environments.  It is also your duty to seek to secure adequate services, education, policing and health care.


These are particularly difficult times, where public funding is under scrutiny against local issues, terrorism and global warming are serious international issues that should be targeted for spending, rather than waste money trying to cover up the inevitable publication of the wrongs of your council.


I am also aware that your council has failed to provide rolling stock for affordable housing, so perpetuating high house prices, denying those on low wages a chance to own their own home. This is surely an elitist society, where those with wealth rape those starting out in life - with help from officials who consistently fail to provide land for development as per government directions. And so the housing shortage continues. Empire building is nothing new in the Wealden district. Big houses for the wealthy and bungs for the planning officers who steer the planning applications.


I am relying on you to do the right thing for your district.  If you decide to do nothing, I expect to read about your resignation, rather than hear you are collecting monies for doing nothing and staying silent. That would also be fraudulent in my opinion - by way of obtaining monies by deception. The deception being that you have failed to represent the people, or only choose to represent some (favored) people, which is again discrimination and abandonment of duty - and of course accepting money for services that you have no intention of providing.


Thank you for taking the time to read this message and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.


Yours sincerely




Nelson Kruschandl




Councillor Robert, Bob, Standley's clean up of Wealden District Council


That's the stuff Bob, but don't stop there. You have a lot more refuse to deal with and it's all buried in your files. Why not start by sacking those officers who have falsified evidence, not told the truth about historic buildings and who even now refuse to do anything to put the matter right.




Councillor Robert Standley at least had the decency to run the inquiry past his officers - and that was his big mistake. He should have made enquiries as to the budget for himself. If he had, he may have found that having a list of local historic buildings would actually benefit tourism and in the log term, generate income for the region. You will note that the officer dealing with this matter is Chris(tine) Arnold.





Councillor Robert Standley: "I knew nothing about all this .... honestly."




A prosecution based on a lie, Wealden knew the building was historic all along an kept quiet about it


Councillor Robert Standley - Did you know that Wealden prosecuted Nelson Kruschandl for breaching an enforcement notice (which he finally proved in the Crown Court that he had not) and that the enforcement notice was fraudulently obtained by lying to Inspector Dannreuther (Secretary of State) in 1986. Wealden told this Inspector at a public hearing that Herstmonceux Museum was not the original generating building, but a later building constructed on the same site. That was of course a cold hard calculated lie. The fact the Inspector was stupid enough to take this council's word for it, was not the Secretary of State's fault. Council's should not lie to Government officials. Wealden do this routinely. The fact they used a fraudulent document to seek to prosecute an innocent man was and is an abuse of process and a malicious prosecution. The Sussex Police are of course unwilling to investigate this crime - probably because they were party to the conspiracy. This same sequence of events was to be repeated in 2008, only this time it was the Sussex Police hiding evidence.........

JAN 2013: “The Rainmaker” by N Richard Nash, Opened to Thunderous Applause at the Edgemar Center, Santa Monica, California, presented by Henry Jaglom and The Rainbow Theatre Company. The play harks back to 1954 when it opened in New York and ran for 125 performances with Geraldine Page and Darren Mc Gavin. Then in 1956 it became the well-known film starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn.

“The Rainmaker” is a story which transcends time. Our plain and opinionated women are called strong and the term “old maid” is from another time. Our women have the choice to marry or to be career women or both. But in times as ours, we all look to some guru to lead us out of our negativity, someone to show us the silver lining in the dark sky. Starbuck shines a klieg light into the darkness. Standley’s Starbuck doesn’t charm us as much as startle us into believing. Tanna Frederick does a beautiful job in bringing all the shadings to her Lizzie. She is the plain, sad waif-like girl, and the painfully awkward person who has not claimed her womanhood.  Fredericks made an amazing leap in the scene in which she seduced Starbuck. We saw the pain and the steely resolve mixed with blatant honesty and her weakness and lack of self-esteem. But, Lizzie is desperate to experience love, even if only fleetingly. 


APRIL 2010: The 2010 Back Stage Garlands Awards, celebrating excellence in Southern California theater during 2009, culminated in a gala gathering for the award recipients, plus invited guests, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City on Monday evening, April 12. Almost 120 attendees filled the spacious lobby of the Douglas. The wonderfully talented showbiz couple Jill Van Velzer (Garland recipient for "God Saves Gertrude") and her spouse, Robert Standley are pictured above.
