 HAIG    REPORT:    WANTED:
Healthy female "dog" to breed with Parson Russell Terrier, to produce ASSISTANCE DOGS.   Rochedale South QLD 4123
I wish to breed from my Parson Russell Terrier. He is a trained assistance dog. He has a wonderful nature. The breed of his mate could be varied or a cross; eg Parson Russell Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Beagle, Bull Terrier, Bull mastiff, Staffy, and/or Fox Terrier plus many others. She does not need to be "pedigreed". I am very protective of my dogs. She will become very valuable to me and become one of my assistance "dogs". If we can assist each other, please contact me on my contact form, including your email address and your landline phone number so I can phone you to discuss. 

Because I am disabled and have an LLB [so therefore understand the Law surrounding disabilities and assistance dogs] I am now branching out to providing Assistance dogs to disabled persons [even if disabled in only a minor way and so not even realizing it]. This is not a business proposition but rather just a very necessary service I can offer to the community.
Many people have a disability and do not realize their ailment or "problem" is by law, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA], classified as a "disability". This is especially so for people getting on in years, and who have a dog, and are maybe moving to accommodation where they are told they cannot take their dog. In a majority of cases, those people cannot be legally forced to surrender their animal/dog.
I will be assisting those person who already have dogs, but are being forced, unlawfully, to dispose of them because maybe they are moving accommodation. I can train your existing dogs to be assistance dogs and provide the documentation as required by the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) [DDA]. I do not intend to charge for this, but just maybe cover some marginal costs.

OPEN letter to my sister Coral McVean nee Mathews

FORUM for Nambour & Sunshine_Coast, Qld Australia
but SPAMMERS BEWARE

OPEN letter to my sister Coral McVean nee Mathews.

Hi Coral,
I am writing this letter to you in this way, as if I sent it by email, I am sure Hugh would intercept it and have a good story to put to you with it.   If I posted it by snail mail, it is still possible that Hugh may intercept it.  I would not expect you to see it first off yourself, but maybe someone who knows you, may print it and give it to you, or invite you to see it on their computer.   I imagine that Hugh will see it first and probably work out his slant on it.  However, I think you may have some friends who may discuss it with you in private without Hugh being present.

Dad used to say to me, [ask Mum, she heard Dad say it repeatedly],  "Hugh has always been jealous of you, and don't expect your sister to help you, she will always do what Hugh tells her."   Early in 2005, at a conference chaired by the RTA, Hugh stretched back, arm out on the top of the chair beside him, and launched into a slow majestic soliloquy  "Oh yeeees,. I am a bit old fashioned like that.  I make all the business decisions in our house."

I think Hugh tells you what he wants you to think and say.   Now, remember the day when Denise Berry came around to my home with you and told you that she though the value of the house was then about $200,000.   Soon after on that day, you  came into my home with Hugh, and you shouted at me, "What have you done to prevent the value of the house rising," and you were shouting at full volume.  You continued, "We didn't put you in her for your benefit. We put you in here for Mum and Dad's benefit."  When I tried to say anything, you would just shout me down.  Of course, Hugh just sat there and watched.  I reckon that he had really told you some false stories.  On that day, I imagine he had said something like, "We have lost a lot of money on this.  We sold NAB shares to buy this house and those shares would now be worth $300,000 [or whatever]. That means we have lost $100,000 for your  family.  Russell [or am I called "the person in question" see the letter Hugh wrote to the BCC (he wanted it kept SECRET)] has cost us a lot of money."  I imagine Hugh made you feel guilty for that "LOSS of $100,000" as he was trying to make out I was living here for your benefit.  I realise now that Hugh has been telling you stories.   I realise that he so despises me, that he wants to pull me down no matter what the cost to him.  Unfortunately, he is wasting your money too.  He has been setting me up to cheat me since 1994 but I have realised it only recently.   I wonder how he thought he would get away with it.  Did he think I was just going to walk away when he tried to make me look a fool?   He is a fool.  He imagines himself.  Dad used to use the fact that Hugh tried to start a Commerce degree just because I had completed first year easily, as just one example of Hugh's being jealous of me. 

I will detail the events of 1994 and show you the evidence BY HUGH, showing he is now lying.  I can also show you who is really to blame and who should foot all your losses and my losses.

I remember in late 1993 at your home in Canmaroo Court.  Mum and Dad and I were there as were you and Hugh.  I had recently been arrested.  Mum and Dad were concerned.  As we were in Mum and Dad's car and about to leave your house in Canmaroo Court, apparently, you had spoken to Hugh as we were walking out, as to whether you could offer to Mum and Dad if you could do anything to help Mum and Dad, because they were worried about me.  You said to all three of us in the car, but looking at Mum, "If there is anything we can do to help, we want to do it."   I wanted to buy a place out here at St Lucia.  I had $17,000+ coming to me, as trustee of a trust, from Telecom now Telstra as they had stuffed up a business owned by the trust, eight years prior.  Telstra were still stuffing me around as that money should have been paid earlier.  [Telstra had agreed to pay that money in early November,  1993.  I can show the banking transaction to prove when the funds actually arrived.]   I had found a house of 6 bedrooms at 12 Dell Road, St Lucia, literally 60 metres from the University of Qld St Lucia campus.  The asking price was $240,000.  I had wanted to live in part of the house myself and let the remainder to share house student/tenants as I had done with my previous house purchases in 1973 and 1977.   I put it to you and you just referred me to Hugh.  So I put it to Hugh.  I did not realise then how much Hugh resented me and was eager to pull me down as, if I had realised what a snake in the grass he is, I would not have entertained the idea.  I just though he was odd, very odd. I explained to him my proposal of subletting it to finance my purchase of it, with him [and YOU] just holding it until I could arrange the finance.   He has admitted this.  Hugh refers to my subletting as "take in boarders".  See a copy of part of his email to me on 21 january, 2004, TEN years after I told him my plans ["you said in the past (a long past) .."].   Note his reference to my "Option of Purchase".
Hugh's email re "take in borders" and "option of purchase".

  As a matter of law, a trust was formed with Hugh as trustee and me as beneficiary.  He then went about stuffing me around.  "Oh, could you find something cheaper": suggesting he was comfortable with the proposition but for a lower exposure.   I found this place [254 Hawken Drive] which was at an asking price of $190,000 but with only three bedrooms.   There was room above the garage for a fourth bedroom when a hallway was put through the then location of the shower which was wrecked and needed replacing; over the bath-tub I intended.   For me, four bedrooms but the lower price still made this a proposition, so was prepared to change my plans to this one.  Hugh agreed, but soon after moving in, he just stuffed me around so that I could not advance my plans.  Now, from your reaction on the day Denise Berry was here, I gather Hugh told you another story, [not that you were holding it for me til I could arrange the finance, buy it and "take in borders"] to allow him to cheat me, which he is now trying to do and causing me big losses.  You would know when Hugh is lying.  I wonder if you are affraid to ask him as he will fly into a rage.  He knows how far he can push you, doesn't he?   You know he is always about manipulating people.  He did it to you, soon after you met when he realised just how infatuated with him you were.  [Remember you repeatedly said how he looked like Paul Newman and you had a big crush on Paul Newman.]   So as to have power ever you, he decided to say you should have a "trial separation".   Clearly, he just wanted to have more or complete power over you and let you know it.  Since, I have seen how he flies off the handle and how scared of him you become.

It is clear to me now that Hugh intended to cheat me way back then in 1994.  He tells lies of course.  He has even had you involved in the CRIME of purporting to execute a fraudulent document , and additionally, introducing that to a court of law in Queensland as a bona fide "contract".   Hugh has also had our MOTHER involved in that fraud too as he had Mum sign as "witnesses" to your and MY signatures.

I am referring to that REIQ tenancy agreement that you have signed purporting to be a tenancy with me agreement for my home.  I can tell you that I did not execute that contract.    Hugh said to me on the 25 May, 2005, while on the driveway of my home here at 254 hawken Drive, that that contract was executed "out the back there somewhere" waving at my home here as he said that.   HUGH IS LYING.  HE IS A REPEATED LIAR. He also at that time, "If you have an email from me where I mention an Option to buy, that is because you sent me an email telling me you were interested in buying the house, and I said that if I am ever going to sell it I will give you the option of buying it."  I retorted, "okay, if that is the case, SHOW ME THE EMAIL."  HUGH WAS DUMBFOUNDED. I repeated that he should show it to me." He had nothing to say.  See what you think of his conduct in his correspondence written by him.   Hugh will be asking you to confirm that you executed that contract in those terms at my home the day we were making those repeated trips to Chermside.  

On the evening of 26 February, 1994, after everyone else except Hugh and I, had left the house here at 254 Hawken Drive St Lucia, after the day of moving in with a number of trips by the truck from Chermside to St Lucia, Hugh said he just had to go outside for a moment.  I guess you were outside in your car at the time and may remember Hugh coming out to the car and collecting the blank REIQ tenancy agreement form.  It was in a thin plastic folder joined on two sides.  It was a fawny light purple-ish plastic on the front and back joined down the left side and across the bottom.   The folder had some cut away from the front sheet of plastic on the right side and across the top with more of the folder on the top right removed and tapering back to nothing removed at the top left and the bottom right.  That front edge had, I think, some embossing on the plastic.   I had seen plastice folder/covers like that previously and recognised. I imagine when you later saw that form, Hugh had it in the same plastic folder, or when you had seen it that day or the previous day. Hugh had closed my front door when he went outside and I remember his returning  and turning around somewhat and closing the door behind him.  He than came up the six front steps.   He had that folder I described.  From it Hugh produced a blank REIQ Tenancy Agreement.  He asked me to sign it blank. He said he had acquired it the previous day from his solicitors.  Hugh stated that it was just because his super fund, the Howard Street Pharmacy Superannuation Fund, had an interest in the house and he just wanted something to put in the file for his superannuation fund, to keep the Superannuation commissioner happy if ever Hugh was quizzed.  He stated it was for no other reason.  Hugh repeated he just wanted to have it on the file.  Hugh advised that he did not have the time to complete it then and that he did not intend to complete it, but just wanted to put it on the file for the Super Fund.

I was uncomfortable about signing it.   I expressed my reservations about signing a blank form.  Whereupon, Hugh raises his voice and launches into his conduct of great exasperation with, "Oh Russell, we are doing all this for you, you know, and we've been helping you today. This is the least you could do."  I felt intimidated by him.   I signed it under duress.

There is now in evidence in court, because Hugh has introduced it,  an REIQ tenancy agreement form  purporting to be  a tenancy agreement signed by me.  My "signature" as are yours and Hughs, are witnessed by Mum.   I do not know if that is actually my signature or if that is the blank form that Hugh pressured me to sign.   However, I have never signed such a form in front of Mum.  

On another matter, I know you know because Mum and Dad told me that you apologised to them for Hugh's behaviour when he was trying to get Mum and Dad's assets. It was about 1996 or 1997.  He was suggesting that Mum and Dad should sell their home and build a house on one of your blocks of land adjoining your home.  Of course, then Mum and Dad would have lost all control of their home, and Hugh would have owned their house built by them. Then, he could have just said to Mum and Dad, at any time, "You will have to go into a nursing home."  Then of couse in his inimitable way, "Of course, it will be for your benefit.  You realise that, don't you?"  After suggesting Mum and Dad sell their home and give the money to him, Hugh said emphatically to Dad, "and Russell will have nothing to do with it."   Dad had always been awake to Hugh, from the time he first showed up in 1967.  Dad was disgusted with Hugh's suggestion and his attitude.  Dad realised that it was just a way of cheating me.  Dad told me that you realised Hugh's conduct and attitude was unacceptable, and that he had gone "overboard", and you apologised to Mum and Dad for his conduct.
 

I suggest that Hugh will say to you about this, something like, "the solicitors have it all under control, don't worry about it."   Are you happy with that if it is all LIES on Hugh's part?

Coral, there has already been a great amount lost in all this due to Hugh's trying to cheat me.  I am sure he will be blaming me to you.   These losses would never have occurred if Hugh had not set out to cheat me.  You know Hugh and how he relies upon the solicitors.   He could never have been in this situation where he is trying to cheat, and has already cheated, me if his solicitors had not helped him.    His solicitors helped him.  They would have known what he was intending.  Solicitors are, in theory, officers of the court, and are supposed to act appropriately at all time.  They are not "guns for hire" [well the courts would say that publicly], and should not be showing clients how to swindle others.   It is all in your hands.  You will know when Hugh is lying, I am sure.   Were he to come clean with how his solicitors advised him, then the solicitors and their "insurance" should pay all of your and Hugh's losses, as well as mine.  All the communications between you, Hugh and your solicitors are subject to legal Professional Privilege aka Client privilege.    That is YOUR right, NOT the solicitors'.  YOU, as one of the clients, has the RIGHT and POWER to release ALL communication, even if it is still in the hands of the solicitors.  They may be inclined to destroy all files.  If they did and then you could produce even one item which they did not  still have, that would show they had cleaned their files.   I am sure Hugh would have so much detail that could sink those solicitors.
