Anger over Sex Offender Chan, Cheuk-Kiu, 25, from Hong Kong, China, still studying at Newcastle University

A male serial child groomer, currently living in Gatehead in the North of England, was caught by paedophile hunters, Dark Justice and Guardians of the North, on several occasions, trying to meet vulnerable young boys, has been allowed, it is allegedly, to stay on at Newcastle University in the UK, despite being on the Sex Offenders’ Register for five years and undergoing a Sex Offenders’ Programme.

And if he is meeting at them in the University halls, this opens other safety issues and then of course, he would be using university computers.


People here are furious that he has also not been deported back to Hong Kong or even jailed.

Dark Justice said on The UK and Ireland Database for Crimes against Children, “We are worried he will go somewhere else and do it again. A community order for a period of three years is nothing, it’s not really punishment.”

The Guardians of the North spokesman said “It’s a damn disgrace. You can understand getting a community order for one offence but for two it’s taking liberties.

“The judges at Newcastle Crown Court are playing russian roulette with our children. It’s not on at all, it’s a disappointing result.

“The fact he’s still able to sit in university and continue with his studies, it’s unbelievable.

Newcastle University, according to its Mission Statement, is committed to
‘social responsibility, transparency and excellence’.

Beaulieu has asked Newcastle University to comment but there has been no reply. Will keep you updated. I haven’t seen a statement from them either.

This story here does make you wonder how many current sex offenders are studying at top universities and colleges unbeknown to other students, and this article has been sent to BBC Panorama and Channel 4 Dispatches to see if they can make further investigations on this issue. After all, famillies visit student halls to visit their relatives or attend functions. It seems to be that Universities nowadays are not fussy now who they get, as long as they have good results and the money to fund the course.

“Awful environment”- Half of South East Coast Ambulance staff (SECamb) report toxic workplace bullying & harassment

The BBC said in a university report that there has been a culture of workplace abuse and bullying within the state-run NHS Ambulance service in England.

'In his report, Prof Duncan Lewis from the University of Plymouth said: "Common decency is a right, not a privilege, and harassment or bullying, including sexual harassment must end now."

He pinpointed that their headquarters in Coxheath in Kent and Tangmere in West Sussex as areas "plagued by poor practices/behaviours".

On their website, in the Careers section, SECamb states they are "Operating in the area which was the birth place of the UK paramedic, you could soon be working for one of the most innovative and forward thinking ambulance trusts in the country."

And, in their statement about their 'values', they claim they 'show respect' as you can see here: http://www.secamb.nhs.uk/about_us/our_values.aspx. Basic standards appear to be ignored by poor management and ineffective HR.

It is totally unacceptable that staff are being bullied in the Ambulance Service. We all need respect at work. It is reflects badly on the organisation and its management, and of course morale. The staff do some great work, and I have had to use them on occasions, but there should not be a culture of workplace bullying and harassment, and employees must not be silenced.

One ambulance worker said on a BBC forum said it was so bad that he had to leave and the culture of bullying within the organisation 'went on for years'. Another person wrote on Glassdoor, a review site for employees and jobseekers, said it was an 'Awful Environment' and another said 'It was OK unless you have an opinion'.

  • Preventing Moped Crime, my steps

    Southwark is one of the worst areas for feral young males on mopeds stealing phones, in particular round Surrey Quays in Rotherhithe. Police have been putting up signs round Southwark warning people of moped thefts, and by bus stops too.

    I think we should all be aware of them and avoid walking down the pavement with a mobile and ideally, walk along the pavement in the other direction, the opposite of where they are going. Of course, in pedestrianised areas, just be vigilant. These men are particularly looking for those who are easy targets, and not paying any attention.

    I don’t have an expensive iPhone and my phone is also registered on immobilise.com and is password-protected after a few seconds.

    I have only noticed signs going up in the last a couple of years, so may be this is a new phenomenen learned from abroad.

    Charlie Gard: Thanks to Great Ormond Hospital

    I sent a postcard to Great Ormond Children’s Hospital to thank them for all their hard work, often working very long hours helping all the children at the hospital and keeping their dignity and professionalis in trying months.

    It was shocking to hear of protests outside the hospital and of all the abuse they they have been receiving, so much so that the hospital has had to contact the police. Staff are busy and stressed enough as it is, just doing their normal job, without the circus adding to it all. They were not respected at the time, and they are experts in their field. Charlie should die with dignity, but it has been a horrible, media circus and didn’t really go anywhere.

    Review of #LondonPride2017 8th July

    I watched the Parade from the sidelines along Regents Street and enjoyed seeing procession.

    It was good to see different kinds of organisations getting involved, although it was very much dominated by large, impersonal, corporates like Tesco, British Airways, financial corporations and John Lewis. You rarely see them in smaller Prides. I didn’t see any rural businesses, or smaller businesses either. It appears to be more of a corporate ‘marketing ploy’ and also catered mostly for the urban population. Come on, Pride, where are the LGBT tractor drivers, the LGBT Gritters, the LGBT construction workers etc.

    The Army, Royal Navy and the RAF were there which was good because they used to be so anti before, although even then I thought of it has a marketing ploy to get more fodder for the forces. The Coldstream Guards were there, still wearing their bearskins, on an extremely hot day.

    I would like to see more types of organisations and clubs getting involved in LondonPride. Needs a bit of freshening up.

    The Parade was smaller this year, but I think this was due to people having to register, but I think that is a good thing as it can make a bit a bit safer.

    As an Asexual, I didn’t see any Asexual people in the corporate organisations involved. There was a distinct absence of diversity within these companies in that respect.

    The Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN) were there as well as the Asexual Podcast team, Pieces of Ace.

    Furthermore, I barely saw any disabled and wheelchair bound people and I saw virtually no elderly people. It is supposed to be inclusive, but it really isn’t enough. Perhaps carehomes and the like, are not providing trips to LGBT Pride, I don’t know. It just seems weird. The music is also catered for the much younger crowd. I don’t think Pride is really marketed or equipped for these people. London Pride has been going on for 50 years now, but it needs to cater for the older generation too as time goes on and our body falls apart. Even more seating for them would be helpful. I wasn’t given any survey by the organisers to provide them with any feedback.

    I enjoyed the music despite this and the silly antics of those in the Parade, although it was really too hot and crowded to stay watching.

    I did see a lone Christian man with a large cardboard with some homophobic comments and quoting the Bible. I just ignored him.

    I went to Trafalgar Square and listened to the music and to Sadiq Khan droning on and on, it was good to see Peter Tatchell again. I didn’t see any Asexual speakers though.

    I did notice that the LGBT brigade tends to ‘bring out the Scene people’, and according to the forums on social media, the Scene lot, can put off Non Scene gays and they refuse to go to Pride. In some ways, Pride has become ‘too sexual’ if that makes sense. One person I met said that the stuff in the Pride Magazine, didn’t apply to him. I would also add that there was nothing about Asexuality in the magazine either. Some Asexuals said that they were very unhappy about being ‘wiped off the PrideLondon posters.

    Despite it being a very hot day, there was a lot of alcohol being sold, which was harmful to people’s health and increases anti social behaviour. However, there was a water fountain which people could use that was great. One blonde woman was so intoxicated that she was sick in Trafalgar Square, which was disgusting and I nearly got sprayed by it. However, generally people behaved really well and warm which was nice to see. Security was ok too.

    Many people didn’t pick up their alocholic litter and loads of glass bottles were just left on the floor. There were officials who helped clear it up, but people should pick up their litter and it stops animals getting hurt too. I picked up my own litter.

    Though there were dogs around, on a really hot day, the Event Organisers refused to supply any dog bowls, as ‘it was not their problem’. Next time I go to Pride, I will take my own dog bowl. I thought this attitude was poor. People forget to take dog bowls sometimes.

    When I got home, I checked the news on social media, and you can see from the comments, that people who are gay are still having abuse in the 21st century, although generally on the Parade I didn’t see much of that other than the man with the cardboard.

    REVIEW: 7/10 Generally a very good day, but needs some improvements.

    London Courts: ITV Cycling Presenter Richard Cunnynghame found guilty of ‘Drunk Cycling’ #summersafetycampaign

    As I am doing a Summer Road Safety campaign, here is a story I picked up from the Daily Mail today, which is a little different from the norm, yes, a drunk cyclist and a semi-professional one at that!

    I cannot believe how people will put themselves in danger by drunk cycling. And, the fact that he gave the police a ‘police chase’ was also astonishing. Wasting police time too. Think before you cycle.

    Cycling and drinking can often go together, which I have seen on my Paris to London experience unfortunately. A lot of cyclists in England, cannot cope without alcohol, and I expect to see many more cases like this. I don’t drink so I won’t get this issue myself and even if I did, I wouldn’t be as stupid as this guy, who tried to get away with it.

    This guy brings cyclists like us into disrepute and even his company, he works for.

    London: An Underground Map for panicky Claustrophobics like me.

    I am a claustrophobic who has spent well over five years, if not more, avoiding the tube to avoid panic attacks. I welcome the news that Transport for London has brought out a new Tube Map showing us where tunnels are, though most of it will be away from Central London.

    The only way I have managed to get on the tube recently is by heavy anxiety medication which help prevents the palpitations and hyperventilating. They are not completely perfect, but they help and I recommend them. I use a combination of anxiety and high blood pressure tablets. I have also been to a hypnotherapist, an expert ironically, in childbirth hypnotherapy, in Tunbridge Wells and learned breathing and trance techniques (yes, learned some hippie’ techniques. I also make sure I have someone with me I know who knows my condition and I try to take something to distract me, like a book, magazine or even knitting, which is better. However, there is still a risk of me getting one, in front of all these strangers. I try to keep my journeys very short and avoid crowded carriages at all costs.

    If there is a choice, I would still go by the bus, cycle or walk. Even with medication, I have to get off after a few stops, if not, the next one before. If there are five stops, I could actually get off twice and then take the bus. It does generally get worse the longer I am using the tube network, particularly if there are a lot of people around, who seem to be ‘ok. I would say that dark tunnels definitely make things worse for me so knowing there where the tunnels are would help. It has been a pain for friends who aren’t claustrophobic.

    The new map shows me where the tunnels are. It is a step in the right direction, but I think what will also help, is having less crowding on the tube, training people to have Mental Health First Aid, even having a carriage just for those with mental health anxiety issues, as it can be difficult having a panic attack in front of lots of ‘normal people’, where we can be very vulnerable in our situation as people do not understand or know what to do, but, the best thing is for me, is to be able to get off when I want to, rather than be fined for setting off the emergency alarm. When I have a panic attack, I don’t find that anyone helps me either. I feel an ‘idiot’ even though panic attacks can affect anyone, even geniuses. The bus is my favourite though, so if I can use the bus, and I am not in a hurry I will.

    The sheer lack of control is ‘my big thing’ and I feel that I have more ‘control on a bus’. I would add that the priority seats on the tube are also helpful, as sitting down relieves anxiety.

    However, if there will be loads more people on the tube train, that will mean that it’ll be more crowded for us claustrophobics! However, the bus is much cheaper than the tube, so it still will be my first choice for short journeys.

    Scandinavian News: Icelanders are fed up with some Tourists’ anti-social behaviour

    Icelanders are experiencing several instances of anti-social behaviour from some tourists staying their country on a holiday break. Though they need tourism for their economy, they don’t need disrespectful behaviour.

    The beautiful Scandinavian country of just over 330,800 people has been left reeling by these shameless visitors and local media is getting behind them.

    Some inconsiderate tourists have been leaving litter, including plastic, which can last over a thousand years, whilst camping, and in South Iceland they plan to clamp down on nuisance behaviour by banning wild camping on public land completely. Litter can also harm farm animals and their unique wildlife and other animals.

    There also have been reports that some holidaymakers have been killing farmers’ sheep whilst on camping trips.

    Rural locals have reported tourists feeding the famous Icelandic horses despite being told not too, whilst others have been seen defaecating in public.

    The British Foreign office has been informed (though I don’t have details of the actual nationalities involved).

    As an huge fan of Iceland, its people and its environment, I hope to do my bit to Keep Iceland Tidy, even though I am far away in the UK. It is a great country, let’s all look after it and be a positive ambassador of your country when you visit it. If you are there, keep a look out for tourists who are spoiling the country, and contact your tour guide or hotel, who can help signpost you to the right people who can deal with such anti-social behaviour.

    If you are a hotel, holiday company or connected with the tourist business in anyway, do encourage people to pick up their litter and respect the country. We can all be the change and I would love to hear what you do to help prevent this.

    Heatwave: RSPCA: 724 motorists in the UK caught leaving their dogs in a hot car

    The RSPCA stated that during the five-day heatwave in the UK recently, 724 dog owners left their dogs alone in the car and they had to be rescued.

    In Kent, I found two dogs in a car during a heatwave, two retrievers, the owner had disappeared to a coffee shop. One of the dogs was in a bad state. I called the RSPCA, but they were eventually rescued by the local PSCO.

    The RSPCA said that one dog was rescued after one and an half hours, according to the parking ticket in a shopping centre car park so passers by ignored the suffering dog for a long time. In my own experience, there were several passers by but nothing was done, they did not notice or seemed interested, it takes a dog lover to notice suffering dogs in a car. Supermarkets have trolley marshalls who should have noticed dogs earlier, why does it take one an half hours for a dog to be rescued?

    In parts of the US, they have now passed a new law that if members of the public sees an animal in distress in a car, they can smash the window open. Unfortunately, in the UK, members of the public cannot do this.

    Camden: Households refusing to leave unsafe towerblocks are being ‘Selfish’

    Of course, it is annoying and inconvenient to be kicked out of your home so late, and not wondering where you will stay. It is an emergency situation, this is what happens. It is not ideal.

    Should there be a fire, they will put firefighters at risk too, not to mention any visitors who would be up there with them. They are delaying any safety works being done to the properties. If it happened to me, yes, it would be inconvenient but it would be an ‘adventure’ and it would be interesting meeting other members of the block, particularly as many would not even know each other. Whatever happened to the ‘Blitz Spirit?’

    One news article said that as much as 83 people are refusing to leave the tower blocks. They are being childish and inconsiderate. It is all ‘me, me’. Of course, the Council should have made the property safe in the first place, but that is another issue. The Council can force them to leave so there is no point whatsoever playing ‘stick in the mud’. They remind me of those people who get flooded and refuse to leave, despite the emergency services asking them to.
