Cllr Andy Long was the member for Herstmonceux until the recent boundary changes. We understand, though this is not confirmed, that he may be standing as an Independent candidate in the local elections in 2019. It is unlikely that he would be standing to represent Herstmonceux.

HX RATES & FRAUD 2019 - 2020


In 2019, Wealden charged rates on The Old Steam House building that they knew could not be occupied legally. They were the engines of a referral to the Valuation Office, supplying incorrect information that led to a band E valuation, where Wealden knew about an extant Enforcement Notice and failed to provide that information to the Valuation Officers for them to present at an Appeal to the Valuation Tribunal - who, presumably were under the impression that the property was not so encumbered.


This deception has caused loss and potential loss to the residential occupier, in violation of the Fraud Act 2006 and Local Land Charges Regulations. This is not a matter for Cllr Long where he can no longer stand as a candidate for Herstmonceux. Whoever is elected for Herstmonceux in 2020 should be aware that this is an outstanding matter, that may end up with the Secretary of State for justice, the Attorney General and/or the Secretary of State for planning.


Under present management, it is pointless passing the matter to Sussex police, where from past performance, reference the Petition of 1997, they will not investigate their chums at Wealden - rendering Wealden a lawless region of Her Majesty's United Kingdom, in violation of SDG 16 of the United Nations' sustainability development goals.




During 2017 Kelvin Williams, under the command of Charles Lant, organised an enforcement visit to The Old Steam House in Herstmonceux, with two police officers in attendance and David Whibley. This was the last of a long line of enforcement visits that we hope have come to an end now that the never ending grant system that encouraged massaged recharge budgets, loading the guns for more and more manufactured litigation, in this case based on a defective enforcement notice from 1986.





Officer's should know that 'Aiding and abetting' is a legal doctrine related to the guilt of someone who aids or abets in the commission of a crime. It exists in a number of different countries and generally allows a court to pronounce someone guilty for aiding and abetting in a crime even if they are not the principal offender. In civil terms regarding damages, this is termed vicarious liability.

In the United Kingdom, The 'Accessories and Abettors Act 1861' provides that an accessory to an indictable offence shall be treated in the same way as if he had actually committed the offence himself. Section 8 of the Act, as amended, reads:

"Whosoever shall aid, abet, counsel, or procure the commission of any indictable offence, whether the same be an offence at common law or by virtue of any Act passed or to be passed, shall be liable to be tried, indicted, and punished as a principal offender."


That does not look good for, Giles York, Kelvin Williams or Bob Standley, except that the Sussex Police are in the pockets of Wealden District Council and also conspire with other agencies to cause harm to their intended victims. It is therefore unlikely that Sussex Police might be persuaded to investigate something where they have been involved for a very long time, despite Chief Constable Giles York being awarded a medal by Queen Elizabeth for services rendered.


This matter had been brought to the attention of Katy Bourne and the Prime Minister, David Cameron, because it is the kind of institutionalised corruption that we as a nation should not tolerate. We fought two world wars to ward off evil, and yet here we are, with organised white collar criminals in the corridors of power, albeit at a local level, but where will it end if we allow hate crime to go unchecked.


Hate crime is illegal. Hate crime is discrimination as per Article 14, but once authority is used unlawfully after it has been pointed out that it would be unlawful, then misfeasance translates to malfeasance - and so becomes a criminal matter: unlawful becomes illegal.


The only possible reason that we can imagine that would give a repeat offender the impetus to continue offending, is if they knew that the local police were in their back pocket, bought and paid for. Wealden District Council is a repeat offender. Sadly, many councils are and corruption in police forces all over the country is like an epidemic, (April 2016) reflected in the "Line of Duty" television series.


There is no statutory time limit when it comes to malfeasance in public office.
