STATUTORY OBLIGATIONS AND RACISM ON BATH CAMPUS AND IN BATH
THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU TO FRAME AS IT SHALL BE REPEATED HENCEFORTH TO YOUR ADDRESSES
- I was a Professional Trade Union Officer before I came to Bath University to do my Masters and to stay on to do my Ph.D. I still am a professional, unemployed or not. I cannot afford legal fees and a solicitor and therefore I am FORCED to represent myself in the only form available to me, that is, by e-mail protest.
- The University of Bath has not observed its statutory obligations to me in any way or form. Freedom of Information letters, Subject Access Requests, etc – all have gone by the wayside in a manner that suggests that the University of Bath answers NONE of these to any members of the public or students or staff. If it does then it is guilty of discriminating against me. The Vice-Chancellor has refused to see me on the only three occasions I have come to the campus in 11 years.
- I am the ONLY student to have gone to both Wits and Bath University that I know of. Peter Ford is the only academic I know of who taught at both and Tony Miles and Susan Gibbs the only South Africans I met there, apart from June Mercer Chalmers, an ex Rhodesian.
- I am the only white member/supporter of the African National Congress that I know in Bath/Britain. As such I am representative of the Africans that largely make up that party and as such I have been subjected to terrific racial abuse including being assaulted, rhohipnoled, having my car vandalised and burnt out, and being complained about to the Royal United Hospital by my supervisor, Adrian Bowyer, who was subsequently given redundancy by Tony Mileham, the man who said: “Change your friends”.
- As a law abiding man I have spent four nights in total in Police Cells in Bath. Racism.
- I said to the Vice Chancellor – “I’ll see you in court!” and I got a night in the cells for harassment. 33 days later. But I did not get time in court. Instead I was almost murdered in the cells.
- I have completed my Ph.D. including three papers publicised and even though another named Alex Parfitt graduated without a SINGLE paper published, Patrick Keogh “There’s no rule against that” openly displays the prejudice he employed in not allowing me back to graduate. Custom and practise therefore says to get a Ph.D. from Bath University you need not publish, you may not be A.N.C. This is racism. In the extreme.
This shall be repeated and elongated with the facts.
