have been trapped in a bureaucratic 'prison' for 20 very long and very hard years. I would rather have done porridge at least I would have been out and free a very long time ago. Prison Bars aren't the only form of imprisonment and the pen is far mightier than the sword from my experiences. All because certain individuals cannot or will not do their jobs or carry out their lawful duties. What a nightmare to be in.

ales trailblazes as it ends prison sentences for council tax debts – while England lags behind

We believe it is draconian, unreasonable and cruel to use imprisonment for civil debt enforcement. It criminalises poverty and disproportionally affects the vulnerable, particularly women with caring responsibilities.

ne of many Court appearances - 7th October 2005. I couldn't go for an Appeal. I could write a book on injustices.

The Authority’s response to your Freedom of Information Request is set out below:



Please could you tell me whether the Council has a formal policy in place
for dealing with vulnerable creditors - No formal policy is in place.



Please could you tell me (if applicable) when the policy came into force
- N/A



Please could you provide me with a rough guide as to how a vulnerable
person is treated - Each case is viewed individually based on any
relevant information or evidence that is presented to the Council or its
Agents.



have now asked whether there are any plans in relation to this in the future.
