When Katy Bourne was elected the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Sussex back in November 2012, she could never have imagined that six years on, she would be facing a criminal conviction, harangued, heckled and held to account by Matt Taylor.
Katy Bourne and Matt Taylor couldn’t have come from more different backgrounds.
Katy Bourne was privately educated at Roedean, the renowned school for girls, who went onto marry a (stupid) banker, after building a career as an pole dance instructor.
Where as Matt Taylor, a disadvantaged lad from a council estate, who grew up to be a Royal Military Policeman and an independent parliamentary candidate, was born into poverty within a one parent family, whose sister grew up to a heroin addict and street beggar, and whose mother was committed to a mental asylum when he was only 6 years old.
When world’s collide.
Katy Bourne and Matt Taylor first met in Arundel, West Sussex in 2012, where they attended the first of four Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) hustings organised by Trevor Leggo from the Sussex Association of Local Councils (SALC).
Neither of them would of known that six years on that they would become bitter rivals in the quest to hold Sussex Police to account.
Neither of them would have known that six years on, Katy Bourne would be facing a criminal conviction, at the hands of Matt Taylor’s meticulous attention to detail and scrutiny.
“This is not a hate campaign, I’m simply holding her to account.”
While many believe Matt Taylor is waging an unfair and relentless hate campaign against Katy Bourne, many more praise Matt Taylor for standing up for the issues Katy Bourne ignores.
Having set himself up as the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner following her election in November 2012, Matt Taylor has championed the following cases which Katy Bourne has turned her back on.
John Lenard Walson’s historical child-abuse:
Katy Bourne’s number two, (and alleged lover) Mark Streater (himself an ex-Sussex Police officer of 30 years) is tasked by Katy Bourne to investigate all misconduct cases against Sussex Police. The conflict of interest is obvious, but love is blind and Katy Bourne is oblivious to the conflict of interest of an ex-Sussex Police officer investigating the conduct of his close friends and colleagues. So far Mark Streater has investigated 24 complaints against Chief Constable Martin Richards, and guess what? He found all 24 complaints to be ‘unsubstantiated.’
Most bizarre of all, when it came to acknowledging that Sussex Police were aware of John Lenard Walson historical child-abuse, (acknowledgment would enable John to receive compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA)) Mark Streater got Sussex Police of the hook by insisting Martin Richards never personally knew about the abuse because while his secretary wrote a letter to Andrew Tyrie, MP for Chichester, apologising for calling John ‘mental’ for alleging he was abused, he did so without actually being aware of what his secretary wrote on his behalf. So it would seem (according to Mark Streater at least) that the Chief Constable of Sussex regularly signed letters without knowing what those letters said…. Either way, Sussex Police are off the hook, and John Walson is still waiting for justice.
Joe David Neilson’s elderly abuse
Matt Taylor first met David Joe Neilson in 2012, when after publicly declaring his intention to stand in the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner elections, David asked him what he’d do about police corruption if elected, to which Matt Taylor replied, “What police corruption?”
Since then a story of police collaboration with known Crime Lords has been revealed, which explains why the killers of Katrina Taylor were initially arrested, only to be released, with all charges dropped a year later.
To cut a long story short; David Neilson lived in the down stairs flat to where the killers of Katrina Taylor returned on the night of her murder. David had been reporting various other crimes to Sussex Police months before it happened. The occupants up-stairs were using the flat as a base for their criminal activities, controlled by known Crime Lord, Mark Slade aka Marcel Sulc. Being a nosey parker, he used to steam open letters, and due to the varied names being used, was able to paint a picture that the property was a base for credit card forgery, drug dealing and the storage and distribution of stolen goods. David maintains that if Sussex Police acted on his intelligence sooner, Katrina Taylor (no relation to Matt Taylor) would still be alive today.
On the following day of Katrina Taylor’s murder, David witnessed a gang member drop something down a drain. Upon calling the police, that something turned out to be the murder weapon. For 24 hours David was heralded a hero and as a result Sussex Police made four arrests in connection with Katrina Taylor’s murder.
Days later David’s life was turned up-side. Sussex Police had no further contact and accepted no further information. It was as if the shutters were pulled down and have never been pulled up since.
The Joe David Neilson story reveals a disturbing picture of organized crime working with Sussex Police to perpetrate fraud, drug dealing and murder cover-up. To date, Joe Neilson has fled his home in fear that members of Mark Slade’s gang are intent in killing him, once and for all.
David is currently looking for solicitor’s firm to represent him in filing a case of elderly abuse against both Katy Bourne and Sussex Police. If you can help, please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
When Katy Bourne heard about Juliette’s story she was said to be ‘appalled’ by how she had been treated by Sussex Police. Since then Katy Bourne has washed her hands and has done nothing about it.
Juliette was once married to a man called Mark Hughes, an abusive husband who not only threatened Juliette’s life but also the lives of his children. Juliette readily admits that the day she heard she had died, was the happiest day of her life.
She could never have guessed that month’s after his death, he would come back to haunt her from beyond the grave.
Mark was a violent bully, a fraudster, and a thief. He took out a second fraudulent mortgage on the family home, in which Juliette had lived for 20 years and where she raised a family. The Halifax Bank have acknowledged the second mortgage was fraudulent and Juliette has the paper work to prove it. Sussex Police acknowledge a crime had been committed and Juliette has the paper work to prove it. But still, Mark Hughes’s mother and sister have gone to the courts to continue her dead husband’s wishes and now Juliette has lost everything.
Her last text read: “You won’t believe it. Our home is up for sale!! With pictures of our home on the internet including my cooker, lights, washing machine, tumble dryer, etc, etc. We are all heartbroken. Juliette .”
Juliette has no-one to turn to. A disabled woman, by herself, with a family to protect has been fraudulently evicted and thrown out onto the street with nothing else but the clothes on their backs. Both Katy Bourne and Sussex Police have turned their eyes and backs to Juliette and her family, all victims of crime.
The Setch-Gate scandal
On the 12 February 2009, Mr Brian Setchfield was arrested and taken to the Bohemian Road Police Station in Hastings. What happened that night and what Brian witnessed still haunts him today. Government theft, fraud and a potential murder. Brian has been trying to get a straight answer from Sussex Police and Katy Bourne ever since, but still he’s being met with a wall of silence.
Revealed as the real reason why ex Sussex Chief Constable Mark Streater retired early, Brian Setchfield and his team have demonstrated that Sussex Police are in cohorts with bent solicitors who steal government money at a whim. There is no accountability or barrier to stopping corrupt officials from fleecing the taxpayers of millions and millions, if not billions, of taxpayers money a year.
The Brighton Scandal
You would of thought that if a Sussex Police officer is put forward for a bravery award, he would of done something brave to have deserved it. Think again…
The Brighton Scandal as told by Michael Coughtrey paints a very different story of the conduct of Sussex Police officers, and one, PC Cameron in particular.
Again to cut a long story short, two police officers were tasked to a disturbance involving Michael’s elderly and mentally ill brother, Alex. Both police officers left the scene with Alex in handcuffs, claiming to have been attacked with a 7″ knife. Nothing could be further from the truth. As Michael has proven, the only weapon Alex could have possibly held at the time of his arrest was a mobile phone. The knife resistant vest which PC Cameron wore that night had no signs of a knife hitting it. But still, PC Cameron maintained he had been attacked by saying “I’ve been stabbed to the chest with a knife.”. Even after the forensic evidence proved PC Cameron was lying, his Commander Graham Bartlett, still put him up for a bravery award.
You can simply not make this up!
These are just five stories which Matt Taylor has championed which Katy Bourne has ignored. Five cases which call into serious doubt the claim by Sussex Police that they ‘Serve and Protect’ the public.
Even Matt Taylor himself has suffered first hand at the corruption within Sussex Police.
He was there when David Neilson was attacked. If it wasn’t for Matt Taylor coming to David’s rescue, David may well be dead.
It was during the run-up to the 2015 General Election, in which Matt Taylor was standing as an Independent Parliamentary Candidate for Brighton Kemptown, that the criminals turned up to sabotage his election by claiming ownership of his election office.
No one can get away with this blatant fraud without police and local authority help and assistance. After the attack, David called the police, only for them to turn up within minutes, laugh and joke with the criminals for 15 minutes, before arresting both David Neilson and Matt Taylor for assault and locking them up in a police cell for the next 12 hours.
There is no denying that Matt Taylor has been a thorn in the side of Sussex Police and Katy Bourne, but all the while they remain silent and refuse to answer the many examples of police corruption and failure which he promotes, the more Matt Taylor claims to occupy the higher ground.
With the news breaking nationwide that Katy Bourne faces criminal prosecution over her expense claims, the bigger picture has yet been properly told.
Its only been down to the persistent and diligent effort of Matt Taylor, the Katy Bourne now faces jail.
“Having reported on Katy Bourne and Sussex Police since 2012, I am the expert on the matter,” he boasts.
As you can see, all these are very serious allegations against Katy Bourne, of which the expenses probe is but the tip of the iceberg.
