A story of one woman's fight for justice and basic human rights. Those who should have helped further traumatised a victim of crime by refusing to act on her behalf, in spite of mounting evidence. ... More > A tale of victimisation, betrayal, defamation of character, perverting the course of justice and more as those who should have helped by investigating impartially refused to do so. Because their aim was to protect the perpetrators and crush the victim along with her allegations. The author writes with humour and honesty she also discusses such subjects as religion, astrology, strength and the relevance of these subjects in her life. She writes about how she coped with the worst trauma and upset of her life due to her neighbours. A compelling read about small time conspiracy. If you are tolerant of drugs for personal use, this might change your view. If you are connected to housing associations in any way(especially a tenant of a HA), local authorities, government or similar, you should read this.< Less
