NUJ Club JournoScam - Derogation
Facts that Jeremy Dear and NUJ Lawyers do not want NUJ Members to know.
International Federation of Journalists
The author and publisher has restricted content of this series of articles to National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) members (also named parties, police officers and solicitors who colluded with them) pending investigation of alleged criminal activity and legal action under: Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992; Fraud Act 2006; Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006; Equality Act 2010; Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The author reported police officers for dereliction of their duty in accordance with the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) guide for handling complaints pursuant to Section 22 Police Reform Act 2002. Complaints against solicitors for professional misconduct referenced: Solicitors Code of Conduct 2007; Solicitors Act 1974; Administration of Justice Act 1985 and Courts and Legal Services Act 1990.
Law enforcement investigations involve an alleged pattern or practice of joint and several illegal or criminal activities by: National Union of Journalists (NUJ) executives, lawyers, and staff; National Executive Council (NEC) officers; and London Freelance Branch (LFB) officers.
Other branches and chapels do not form part of intended civil and criminal complaints; therefore, the author has no opinion on their activities. Adverse comments, all verified and validated to insure accurate reporting, meet legal requirements. This proviso in no way restricts NUJ and IFJ members from releasing excerpts (with accreditation) to interested third parties including news media.
All individuals featured in Contra Cabal received prior notice in accordance with international codes of ethics agreed among journalists. They had an opportunity to mitigate damage and to refute statements that could negatively affect their reputations or cause investigation or prosecution of them for alleged illegal acts. Several of those codes have international legal precedent.
The notices gave them an opportunity to challenge with substantiated evidence any charges affecting their ethical or moral character. For public accountability, the author encouraged them to respond in open exchange before a deadline. Individuals mentioned incidentally received a copy of the notice as a courtesy.
Journalists must report the truth no matter whom they offend and with disregard for the consequences of publication. Accurate reporting predicates a higher purpose and the common good. The author did not solicit personal opinions and informed individuals that they should address only matters of fact.
The notices declared personal or conflicting interests that related to topics or to opinion especially when the content drew upon advocacy, experience, conclusion, or interpretation. They advised of a responsibility to gather information and develop public awareness about wrongdoing and violation of codes of conduct. Primarily, the articles expose malfeasance and misuse of public funds also abuse of members by trade union officials and officers and law enforcement agencies.
Named individuals neglected to adhere to their duty of care. Some maliciously damaged others and their reputations by libel, slander, assault, or other unlawful acts. No person received immunity from investigation. Anything published results from investigation, verification and validation which took into account violations of law or breach of established rules and ethical practices.
NUJ Code of Conduct calls for its members: “to produce no material likely to lead to hatred or discrimination on the grounds of a person’s age, gender, race, colour, creed, legal status, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation”, that a person’s age should only appear if strictly relevant, and that they should neither originate nor process material which encourages discrimination, ridicule, prejudice or hatred on those grounds. [NUJ Code of Conduct]
Repeated insolent and evasive acts by NUJ officials (including in-house solicitor Roy M Mincoff already under investigation by Solicitors Regulation Authority for professional misconduct) have derogated a senior to such an extent he has now filed complaints with other law enforcement agencies. Mincoff evaded his responsibility to investigate complaints exhaustively and without bias then derogated the complainant.
Agism promotes political paternalism which demands, contrary to democratic practice, that members take care what they say, what they think, and what they do, offends nobody. It encourages them to decide issues, not on evidence or merits, but based upon the behavior of an oligarchy. They then gain suitable rewards as politically correct clones for following the ideology taught by a political commissar.
Cloning presents a real threat to trade unionism. That threat lies in the non-selection and non-promotion of those with nonconformist views. This process results in the standard of quality and excellence emanating from oligarchs determining the outcome of issues. Consequently, cloning supports an instinct toward conformity.
Conformity eliminates inconvenient nonconformity (also honest dissent) and the usurped power of the oligarch remains safe from free expression. NUJ officials neglect to differentiate between malicious ad hominem and satire (a legal means of expression) then, in ignorance, they scream “libel” and “slander” when they think that satirical content or reasoned argument entirely applies to them despite having made their own interpretation. Satire and political cartoons classify as protected speech even if the targets do not appreciate the humor.

The legal term "derogation" defines as: communication that belittles a person which negatively affects his reputation and reduces the effectiveness of laws or rules. NUJ officers and officials deviated from legal precedents or expectations with intent to abrogate laws and established a pattern or practice of age discrimination. A “pattern or practice” defines as, and manifests in, two or more organized acts or instances which indicate ensuant activity and a distinctive pattern. [Message Boy - Open Letter]
Wrongful use of language by NUJ officials evades a responsibility to investigate complaints exhaustively and without bias. The number and frequency of those acts reveals an organized campaign which leaves no alternative but to file a request for investigation under Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006.
That act applies in England, Scotland and Wales, and provides protection against age discrimination in employment also training and adult education, for people of all ages. It particularly applies to freelance journalists and members of trade unions or professional associations. The principle types of age discrimination relate to harassment, victimization and indirect discrimination.
Christopher Graham Wheal,
Will you piss off with your inane ramblings. My nephew was killed in a tragic accident on Tuesday and all I get is wank from you. Now take me off your email list, or better still, fuck off and die you complete and utter tosser*. One more peep from you and if I bring harassment charges you'll be lucky. I find you personally I'll fucking break your legs. [sic]
The author has reported to Metropolitan Police (Lewisham) that Wheal committed a criminal offense by threatening grievous bodily harm against an NUJ member in violation of Protection from Harassment Act 1997.
This reprobate describes himself as a journalist and writing instructor. *tosser. A derogatory term for a stupid, irritating, or ridiculous person.
The author neither had any previous contact with Wheal nor did he write about him. Wheal received a media release but did not opt-out from the list.
Stereotyping and prejudice against individuals or groups based upon their age legally defines as agism which interprets as discrimination against seniors patterned after, and equal to, sexism and racism. Agism evolves from a combination of prejudicial attitudes toward older people and the protocols that govern institutional practices and policies. It ranks as the most pervasive form of prejudice currently experienced within the UK which NUJ currently manifests in its practices. [Agism]
Harassment and coercion (compulsion by force of authority) rank as illegal under the act. The legal meaning of harassment: unwanted conduct‚ on the grounds of age‚ which has the purpose or effect of violating a person’s dignity‚ or creating an intimidating‚ humiliating or offensive environment for that person. It has also become unlawful to harass someone about the age of someone with whom they associate.
Victimization has a specific meaning under discrimination law. It means unfair treatment for filing an age discrimination complaint or giving evidence when somebody else complains of age discrimination. Indirect discrimination means having a policy or practice that puts people of a certain age group at a disadvantage‚ compared with other people.
Under the new law‚ direct and indirect discrimination will be unlawful unless the culprit can justify the discrimination or that an exemption applies. Derogation forms a prime means of coercion used to control and belittle senior citizens prevalent among National Union of Journalists (NUJ) officers and officials. [Derogation - Case Studies]

NUJ/LFB Member Paul Trummel has written hundreds of articles on corporate, union, senior and academic abuse, and institutionalized racism. He founded Contra Cabal (one of the first electronic magazines to appear on the web) for which he develops the site, writes articles, designs pages, and produces graphics.
Published in print since 1944 and on the web since 1992, without a single challenge to the authenticity of his reporting, he has spent sixty years as a trade union member and elected delegate, twenty years as a new media industry CEO and systems designer/consultant, and thirty years as a post-graduate professor teaching computer industry executives and students of journalism, law, and graphic design working on masters or doctoral degrees. He has attended or chaired hundreds of faculty and trade union committee meetings including national conventions.
The web sites contain articles and descriptions of unlawful prior restraints and abrogation of journalism rights also details of imprisonment and ongoing Internet harassment using denial-of-service attacks. Probably one of the first sites of its type to appear on the web, Contra Cabal has published since 1992.
Articles cover criminal activity by bureaucrats, union officials, and abusers of elderly people. They describe the actions of corrupt judges and gross misconduct by lawyers who file frivolous law suits against tenants in government financially-assisted housing. They reveal how people in authority use retaliatory measures and propaganda to destroy the reputations of people who report illegal activity and racism.
Details of academic credentials and professional qualifications counter record falsification, withholding, and destruction, also forgery by registrars at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and University of Washington. Some articles challenge libel/slander maliciously circulated as part of an international campaign of character assassination, personal vilification, subornation, and perjury to effect prior restraint.
Jeremy Dear, NUJ General Secretary recently joined in that defamation. He muckraked to find and extract libelous statements and used them out of context. That suited his purpose to defame the author and to cover-up his eight-year neglect to support him on issues that affect all journalists. NUJ media blackouts cover up his dereliction.
Roy Martin Mincoff (NUJ in-house solicitor) negotiated a £262,000.00 quid pro quo between NUJ and the author's member of parliament, Gareth R Thomas MP (Harrow West), Minister of State, Department for International Development in a distinct conflict of interest. Both Mincoff and his predecessor Claire S Kirby (Thompsons Solicitors, Cardiff) are under investigation by Regulation Authority for professional misconduct. Criminal complaints are pending against NUJ officials and NEC officers for fraud and neglect to provide member services.
The author's professional and academic credentials and curriculum vitae (about fifty pages) can be accessed from the menus at the top of each page. Anyone with an ethical reason can ask for verification and validation of any of the claims made on those pages.

Letters to the Editor
Letters should not exceed 250 words, with preference given to those letters responding to articles published in Contra Cabal.
Letters must include the author's name, city, and state, email address, and a phone number for contact and verification.
The Editor reserves the right to edit letters for length and clarity and not to publish all letters.
By submission of a letter, the author agrees that Contra Cabal may publish and/or license the publication of letters in print, electronically, and for archival purposes.
Freedom of speech, an absolute right not an abstract philosophy, should not subserve economic considerations.
Moreover, information technology remains a right not a privilege despite technocratic claims to the contrary.
Legislative and judicial decisions have determined the right of individuals to distribute information freely.
Laws do not provide much protection when despotic administrators interfere with computer resources because they disagree with the content of messages: a disagreement probably based upon disclosure of their own malfeasance.
They fear dissent and have an aversion to controversy. Their addiction to political correctness frequently causes them to invoke censorship of Internet activities.
They not only empower their systems administrators to handle frivolous email complaints by arbitrarily removing computer access but also allow them to censor incoming mail - an outrageous invasion of personal privacy.
They act upon an irrational expectation that certain categories of email may contain something that they would not wish others to read then arbitrarily reject it.
Interference with email transmission not specifically proscribed by international law classifies as a serious offense which National Union of Journalists officials should note.
Repeated insolent and evasive acts by NUJ officers and officials to members with legitimate complaints have established an illegal pattern or practice.
The term "derogation" defines those acts as: communication that belittles and deviates or partially takes away the effectiveness of laws or rules.
Wrongful use of language evades a responsibility to investigate complaints exhaustively and without bias.
The number and frequency of those acts reveals an organized campaign which leaves no alternative but to file a request for investigation under Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006.
