Fine. Award Her Compo, Then Bill Her For The Cremation Cost.

Zak Babar, 50, who formerly lived on the streets of Southend, died in October last year in Gloucester.

His sister Candice Babar, 45, claims that no attempts were made to contact her or her family despite the fact she was still in semi-regular contact with him.

So he was cremated. And now the compo train is loading up with coal and water in preparation for a long run:

Candice, who was sent an anonymous email telling her of Zak’s death, is now considering legal action against the authorities after neither Gloucestershire Police or Coroner’s Service attempted to contact her.

The taxpayer’s paying, after all! We have such deep pockets. What did he die from?

Homeless Zak died from an accidental heroin overdose in Gloucester…

Great! Let’s shower the relatives of a junkie with our cash, eh?

Candice added that she was not even aware that Zak, originally from London, had been living in Gloucestershire.

But ‘the authorities’ should have been..?

    Why should we pay her compo. She clearly wasn’t in touch with him and it shouldn’t be the states responsibility to ensure she is kept up to date.

    They already stick their oar into too much.

    Babar the Elephant stories were loved by my children when little.
    Babar the Heroin Addict doesn’t have the same cachet.

    She says she was, “Still in semi-regular contact with him”, but didn’t know where he was. So not in contact at all. But as there could be money to be claimed from the rest of us, let’s pretend.

    OT – RNLI becomes more woke

    RNLI – Overseas Expenditure. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    As both a dinghy and occasional offshore sailor, I have always considered a regular donation to the RNLI to be a worthwhile insurance premium for my sport. I have huge respect for their volunteers and what they achieve on a daily basis. However, according to an article in the Times this morning (link to follow) the RNLI have been spending millions on overseas projects including giving out burkinis in some countries and investing in a crèche in Tanzania. This comes at the same time that they are cutting over a hundred of their funded posts and “rationalizing” coastal stations in the UK. If this is true, then they have lost the plot any have certainly seen their last donation from me.

    Overseas “anti-drowning” projects funded by the RNLI include the Panje Project in Tanzania, which gives devout Muslim women and girls full-length burkini swimsuits and swimming lessons. It also funds crèches in Bangladesh, which it claims will prevent children from swimming in the sea.

    I stopped donating to RNLI in early 2018 – confirms I was correct

    Dumb woman doesn’t even understand leverage or accept advice. Entry tests dumbed down for equality; fire fighting & rescue abilities not relevant

      They may have overplayed their hand at last…
