Seems my story will be going into the press next Wednesday *fingers crossed* anyway. :-0 That said, by next Wednesday, I won't exactly be little Miss Popularity !! I am rather tired today, but exposing local scandals can be draining....

The scandal is to do with my landlord who has had tenants that keep setting the properties ablaze - if it ever happens during the night, the building will be sky high. They are now saying they are taking the situation "very seriously" (d'uh). However, they have said all this before .... And so, I went to my MP then to the press. With the spotlight right above their heads, it had BETTER be taken seriously now.

Update: photographer has been organised to go with story which it seems WILL be published next Wednesday - I think I will be the talk of the town.

My neighbours, btw, appear to be completely incoherent. The last time I went along to my local police station, fell over on some rocks, and almost wound up in the sea..... when I went to the pool afterwards, some neighbours were floating about on boards, completely oblivious to everybody and everything.

If this doesn't work, it's down the C.A.B., then down the legal route/NATIONAL press. In the words of the "Carpenters" (band from the 70s)... "we've only just begun...........!! "

This will probably look like I'm starting an argument, but I actually can't be bothered with one so thats not my aim. However, what exactly does this have to do with you?

Are we talking about a building where the same landlord owns more than one property within it or something? I am very tired as I write this, I'm just not really managing to get my head around someone going to the press on their own landlord thats all.

It is really is perfectly simple. Yep, the landlord has control over more than one property. Basically, they are being negligent towards other tenants, and putting us into unnecessary danger / anxiety. There are up to six young children in the building. If we don't do anything, we and they will be killed if there is a gas explosion because of a fire.

I have already had to copy a file I have on this in my hotmail to my friend in London who is gonna go to the police if there is some major incident !!

Hopefully we will be able to finally move house in 2013 before something THIS drastic happens. We need to make moving a COMPLETE mission from now on....

The current situation: My MP informs me the landlord is denying any complaints by residents. However, once this news goes into every paper on every shelf in East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire, West Ayrshire and South Ayrshire, they won't be able to deny complaints any longer.

I know putting your own landlord into the press is slightly drastic, but they really backed us into a corner - they need to get their act together and review their allocation policies. If I (we) can stop some major incident, I think we should do it. I've finally managed to get the backing of another (male) neighbour now. 'Bout time !!

And.... who knows?! Maybe just one of these days I may just be able to log on here feeling just a little less stressed?! Or not feeling like I am about to lose my actual life? Who knows, eh. Gotta just keep on going !! HA!!

Trust me... You are NOT the only one saying that.... but it's a choice.... do nothing.... tenants get killed (or seriously injured, and lose their homes). Do something.... you gotta a chance of the entire system of allocation policies being reviewed.

I ain't gonna be popular though, by any means.

Ordered a jacket online on Friday night, and there was a postman at my door first thing today handing me it. This was a rather pleasing development in a morning that was fast heading down a very frustrating path arguing with people over facebook regarding a TV license.

Back to work on Sunday and sticking a massive middle finger up to xmas by working right through till the 29th. I loathe the way the UK changes hours because of what is a religious event and being forced to have the day off because of it, but this year due to what I'm now doing it means I can actually to go work and treat is as best I can like any other day.

I wrote this elsewhere in relation to xmas but its probably worth pasting it here too.....

Christmas is the main event in the christian calendar. I am an aethiest and have no time for religion. For the most part I can get by without any religious things creeping in, except I can't escape this one. I don't appreciate having a religious event forced upon me but I have to put up with it. Sadly all my friends take the view that I'm a scrooge and should be getting into the spirit, without any respect for my desire to lead an entirely religion free life.

Its also a horrible time of year for some people for personal reasons as well. I know my Mum and an Aunt in particular don't like this time of year as one of my Grans was killed in a car crash shortly before christmas a few years ago, and a couple of years later a cousin had a seizure one morning and also died. My other Gran died shortly before christmas several years ago as well so I don't think its a particularly great time of year for my Dad either. I know it really bothers my Mum being expected to "get into the spirit" of it, because it just shows a complete ignorance for peoples personal lives.

When the notice went up at work looking for volunteers to work over xmas and new year, I was the first to get my letter in saying I was interested. I had a feeling it would be at an overtime rate because it was xmas day but even if it had been at the standard rate I wouldn't have been too upset about it, also got a special request in to do a certain route that day because it goes up to where I used to live and I don't do that one because its operated by another depot

I have to agree with a lot of this. I have experienced upsets and deaths of family members at this time of year as well.

I used to believe more in religion, but I think this current "tenancy" situation has caused me to revise my views. What kind of God would put people (vulnerable) or otherwise into danger time and time again. But then, another part of me thinks ... with existence on planet Earth comes the free will to make decisions, so is it God's fault?? It is very confusing.

Today, despite all I have said above, I wound up in a church - makes no sense at all really, but when do I ever make sense!!

:hahaha: LOL.. it DOES really !!!!!!!

Seems you can get your msp to raise matters for you - housing = devolved matters.

Other matters are called "reserved" and are for UK parliament... So Cameron must have overall power?!

Seems you can also get a petition going with the Scottish Parliament. Fascinating this... the more I know, the more I want to know. :hahaha:
