Small Justice Against Solicitor Jim Beresford

Jim Beresford (slime of the earth)

Jim Beresford (slime of the earth)

Solicitors James Beresford and Douglas Smith – who took millions from Miners –  lose their appeal

Finally, after yet another year of time has passed, the crooked and not very appealing (they called themselves ‘entrepreneurial’)  James Beresford and Douglas Smith, formerly of Doncaster-based Beresfords Solicitors, have had their case against being struck off the solicitors’ roll quashed.

Unbelievably, Beresford and Smith deemed themselves fit to practice after ripping off taxpayers and widows.  See this BBC story

Doubtless, all the poor widow women who got a few hundred quid compensation for watching their husbands cough themselves to death because of industrial injury while the solicitors ran off with millions of taxpayers’ and their money will be gladdened by this…


What should have happened is that all their ill-gotten gains should be taken back.  It’s not enough to stop them practising.  They deliberately set out to double-charge both victims and the taxpayer.  In many cases, these charges were wholly excessive anyway – and then they doubled them!

What actually happened  is that the grinning Beresford is now set up in another profitable business, living the life of Riley while the widows continue to suffer.   The slow drip of employee dissatisfaction shows the bloke to be as odious as before and karmic retribution is getting closer and closer for Beresford, at least.  (added on information received in later comments below)



The reality is that Beresford and Smith don’t just need their names striking off some paper roll.  They haven’t suffered in any way.

They need their balls striking off for having the balls to take money from those that could least afford it and who put their trust into their professional expertise where they promised to do the best for their clients.

As it is now, the interest on their ill-gotten gains is more than a banker’s pension.   I truly believe that Karmic Retribution will hurt these people very badly indeed.  It’s up to them to set right their wrongs or else they will suffer terribly.  I don’t have to do a thing.  I just know it.

Another One Bites the (Coal) Dust

Third Solicitor Barred from Practice

Andrew NultyAndrew Nulty from Warrington is the third solicitor to get barred from the profession for stealing from clients.  He was fined £60k and barred and another lawyer, Malcolm Trotter was fined £15k.  (See full story)

Complete and Utter Thieving Twat lawyer Jim BeresfordThis follows on from the barring of Slytherin  lawyer, Jim Beresford last December, which I wrote about here.

As usual, the fines are in no way related to the magnitude of the offence.  For instance, Nulty made £13m in a single year, much of it by ripping off sick and dying coal miners, yet his fine was only £60k and loss of his job.

@AmazonCompare this to someone who doesn’t pay their TV Licence (~£130p.a.).

For this heinous crime against the TV program makers’ budget, you can be fined £1000 and/or imprisoned!  This story is a case in point.

@AmazonAnd this is the trouble with our society.

Slime ball professional lawyers get off scot-free and slime ball gambling bankers get bailed out and extravagantly pensioned-off.  Meanwhile, the poor and the sick suffer because of their corrupt actions.

I really hope that some form of asset recovery process (like the failed one, designed to target drug dealers and organised crime, and successfully discussed here in conjunction with the draconian chops taken with our liberties and freedoms), is applied to these scamming scum.  If 90% of their wealth was confiscated they’d still have plenty left and be able to live a much more comfortable life than the thousands of miners they ripped off.

The True Cost of the G20 Protest (in Daffodils)

G20 UK Protests – an Appraisal

Following on from this post about the protest(s) the other day and the obviously censored reporting, we can now look back for a little unheated analysis.


What’s clear to me during the event, was the useless reporting and photograph work, the news organisation’s focus on violence and the hazy halo-like glow that accompanied all reporting from the actual summit.  The last I can understand as a positive spin to it will eventually be to everyone’s benefit.  And it IS better to talk than fight so there’s a positive outcome to all of this.

Photos and Photographers

What is bad though is the evidence from own eyes (or rather lack of it).  Every picture and news report we saw had hundreds of cameras in evidence.  In total there must have been more cameras than protesters!

And yet there’s hardly any real gutsy photos anywhere.  Check Google images and elsewhere – it’s the same old few dozen that have appeared globally.  So what happened to the rest?  They must have been really, really boring….

During the protests, a few pictures emerged of bloodied heads.  There is one popular one of a policeman with a bandaged head.  And yet despite the plethora of cameras, I haven’t seen one single photo of any of these injuries actually occurring – to anyone!  Did everyone turn into ‘I saw nothing’ Arsene Wegner?


We are told by the police that there were ‘about 3-500 hardcore trouble-makers’!  We were also told that 122 people had been arrested.

So what percentage of these ‘hardcore’ are actually going to court?  How will I find out?  How many were or will be convicted?  Or will it be like the 1980’s miner’s strike when hundreds were locked up without trial and none were ever convicted!! ?

As a way the endure that ‘The State’ maintains it’s power and authority this is pretty effective stuff.




The rosy glow of world leaders smiling like some X-Factor contestant’s publicity shot made certain that any uncomfortable thoughts about freedom and it’s maintenance were quietly forgotten.

Instead, we’ve been treated to quite a few photos of people cleaning the streets and worrying words about ‘the cost’ of this exercise and the cost of freedom.  Plentiful sarcastic comment was made by several news organisations about the ‘anarchists’ having the freedom to protest and I even saw a picture captioned ‘anarchists queuing for the portaloo’.   We’ve seen close-up shots of ‘the damage’ to a flower bed and bits of graffiti being hosed off buildings to emphasise the cost of all this.

Damaged DaffodilsThe true cost, of course, isn’t a bag of daffodil bulbs and a bit of compost from B&Q.  It isn’t the few hundred quid extra it costs to wash away the words from walls and remove stickiness from statues.

The true cost is the tera-money that’s been wasted by the actions of a few corrupt individuals and that everyone is now paying for.  Here’s what is meant by real tera:

  • kilo – 1000 – cheap car
  • mega – 1,000,000 – big lottery win
  • giga – 1,000,000,000 – annual budget for a major government department from a first world country
  • tera – 1,000,000,000,000 – money wasted by big banks in a year

To put it in perspective;

  • we could build 10,000 brand new hospitals with that.
  • we could fly several manned missions to Mars
  • we could plant the whole of Europe with daffodils, one metre apart (** see calc below)

Instead of any of that, of course, we will all have less while the individuals responsible, almost to a man, laugh up their sleeves and go for a tan.

**Daffodil Calculation

  • Europe has an area of ~ 10,000,000 km2 which is ~ 10,000,000,000,000 m2
  • You can buy daffodils for about 3 to a pound.
  • Wholesale cheap ones will be about 10 to the pound.
  • So for a tera bailout, we could buy 10,000,000,000,000 daffodil bulbs!
  • Mysteriously, this means that for the money wasted by the banks, we could cover the whole of Europe with daffodils planted one metre apart!

That’s the true cost of banking and the true clean-up cost.

Broken Links and Plane Stupid

I use a plugin to keep a handle on “link rot” called Broken Link Checker, and today I noticed a link on this post, The Man Who Ate the World – by Frederik Pohl was off.

Checking the Plane Stupid website, I found this message:

There’s not much on Google yet, but I found this posting on London Net:

Climate Change Activists Face £2.2M Bill for Stansted Stunt

From the article, about half the protesters have been fined small amounts, the rest nowt.  The £2.2m bill is coming from o’leery’s leg thrombosis-ing Ryan Air.

This all stinks just like the miner’s strike.  During the “riots” many were arrested, none were convicted, and when early death and industrial illness claims were made against British Coal, they all got ripped off by big business slitherin lawyers.

So not only the government is seeking to stifel free speech and peaceful demonstrations, but big business is too under the banner of “lost trade”.

oleery will have loads of lost trade when the fuel runs out.  That’s what the demo was about.  In a strange way, it was trying to save his business by extending it’s life by more thoughtful use of the Earth’s limited resources.

As I’m fond of pointing out, our current society is un-sustainable.  This means it will end whether we like it or not.  NO amount of law suits will bring it back.

Conman ‘barrister’ – but was he any good?

Ian_Clegg The Tale of Two Conmen Barristers

Conman ‘barrister’ who bought robe and wig on eBay jailed for two years

Tea-leaf Ian Clegg here, did the amazing thing here of charging people money to represent them in court.  He did this over a 6-month period and apparently made hundreds of pounds!

In one case for a client,  he wrote a threatening letter to a debtor!  Gosh.

He’s now been locked up for 2 years.

His crime wasn’t the money-making.  Far from it.  No his crime was that he broke the (new, since 2006) law of impersonating a barrister!

He also broke his previous bail conditions for credit card fraud and stuff, which is fair enough.  (Weirdly, if he’d have represented the people as himself, he would have been okay, dependant on the type of court cases he did).

But his real crime, as we know, was that he made the lawyers look stupid.

Sick miners’ lawyers struck off

I can only hope that the similar level of relative penalty is applied to Slytherin Jim Beresford.

Complete and Utter Thieving Twat lawyer Jim Beresford Jovial Jim did the amazing thing of charging people money to represent them in court. (He also charged the government).  He did this over several years and made millions of pounds!

In several cases for clients he wrote threatening letters! Gosh.

He’s now been kicked off the bar.

Apparently, so far, it looks like there’s no crime apart from the long-standing ones of failing his “Duty of Care” and that of being an honourable and decent human being.  (He thinks he’s an entre-preneur).

But his real crime, as we know, is that he’s a greedy twat.

So there we have it – Walter Mitty versus King Midas.  We know King Midas is crap, but no news on whether Walter Mitty actually won money for his clients – and so cheaply too!

People from St Hilda’s Church said they don’t know who to trust anymore.  Well the answer is neither of them, but if you go with Cleggy you don’t come off so badly…
