MY COMPLAINT TO THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE POLICE REGARDING THE LEGAL COMPLAINT AGAINST ME AND THE REMOVAL OF TWO OF MY POSTS ABOUT TRINITY LIFE CHURCH IN LEICESTER:
"ADAM SIMMONDS Police and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire is also Director and Trustee at Trinity Life Church Leicester which is in my opinion is a very cultish Assemblies of God Pentecostal church. Simmonds has sent the legal complaint to Google which has resulted in two of my posts on blogger being removed. Is it ethical that The Police and Crime Commissioner makes a legal complaint on behalf of an organisation he is very closely involved with as Director and Trustee? Does Simmonds legal complaint constitute a conflict of interest and breach the NORTHAMPTONSHIRE OFFICE OF THE POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER CODE OF CONDUCT? My posts were removed around the 6th of March - I have not even been given a reason for their removal!
I would argue that had an ordinary member of the public made a legal complaint against me then I doubt it would have resulted in my two posts being removed. There are some good examples of this actually so I think it is a valid argument. Simmonds has more clout than the average person and I believe that he has used his position to suppress any kind of impartial debate or free expression."
A few further thoughts that I have sent to Northamptonshire Police: "Usually a legal complaint like this involves the expertise of a solicitor. Did Simmonds/Trinity Life Church avail themselves of legal advice and pay a solicitor or was it done via Northamptonshire Police and their resources? When precisely was the legal complaint made? Was it done in Simmonds own time or during his working hours?"
IT APPEARS THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO IS UNHAPPY WITH ADAM SIMMONDS!!!
The ill will Simmonds has created in the short eighteen months since he has been appointed is astonishing to put it mildly. There is complete disparity between Simmonds actions and his claim to be a committed evangelical Christian. The complaints below come from a wide spectrum of people and include accusations of cronyism and complaints about his disgusting attitude towards the poor. The irony is that while Simmonds advocates two years of “boot camp hell” for problem families in Northamptonshire, Trinity Life Church, of whom he is Director and Trustee preach the diametric opposite: "Compassion is at the very heart of God and the very heart of TLC...... Love the poor. We will keep going with all the Open Hands ministries reaching the poor, the broken, the addicted, the vulnerable and the displaced." http://www.trinitylifechurch.org.uk/
As far as I am aware there have been two petitions to have Simmonds sacked - one petition is still available to sign. Even a brief Google search on this man is very shocking.
"The integrity of our elected PCC Adam Simmonds now lies in the gutter as a result of his own doing." http://www.northampton-news-hp.co.uk/News/Northampton-News/BLOG-A-challenge-to-Police-Commissioner-Adam-Simmonds-20131219190100.htm
".....megalomaniac PCC Adam Simmonds has now taken over the Northamptonshire Police Corporate Communications Department, fired the managers and replaced them with his people." http://www.politicsforum.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=115&t=42609
"Whilst public services are being cut, he's somehow employing 17 people at a cost of over £1m and wants to move Northants Police HQ to posh new offices at a cost of £10m, so clearly he knows exactly what life is like with virtually no money. In fact, he even goes so far as to say “I am a member of the public and it is my job to champion them.” By sending kids to boot camps .....He also wants people to work hard for their money - which explains why he's giving jobs to his mates without conducting any formal interviews, including giving his election agent a £65k job as one of his four Assistant Commissioners."

It will be very interesting to see how the Chief Executive responds to this complaint about the Northamptonshire PCC. I think has important implications for freedom of expression - watch this space for updates!
