Dear Sir/Madam,


I have received a letter dated March 8th 2011 from Margaret Langton C.O. in the Correspondence Section of your Department.

In her letter, Ms Langton states that the matter relating to the shortfall in my Disability Allowance payments can only be decided if I fill in an application form for the State Pension (Non-Contributory).

As I have stated in my registered letter to you of March 5th 2011, I estimate that the Disability Allowance payment shortfall in question is in the region of 5,700 Euros (or so), and growing at a rate of approximately 100 Euros per week.

In case that for any reason you are unaware of my letter to you dated March 5th 2011, a copy of the text of the letter can be viewed at the following www:

Up to the time I received Ms Langton's letter of March 8th 2011, I believed it would probably be best for me to not fill in the application form for the Non-Contributory State Pension, partly because I was unsure as to whether I should mention the 5,700 Euros (or so) shortfall: allowing for the "means tested" nature of the Non-Contributory State Pension Scheme.

However, there was a second and much more important reason why I felt it might be best for me to delay applying for the Non-Contributory State Pension, and it relates to a letter dated August 9th 2010 which I received from John Doherty, who is a Private Secretary to former Minister for Social Protection Eamon O' Cuiv TD.

The August 9th 2010 letter I received from Mr Doherty (copy attached) led me to believe that former Minister O' Cuiv would be conducting a responsible investigation into the issues I raised in an e-mail titled "Payments stopped" that I sent to him on June 16th 2010.

A copy of my June 16th 2010 e-mail to former Minister for Social Protection O' Cuiv, which was primarily addressed to Leslie Morgan of the UK Northern Ireland Social Security Agency, can be viewed at the following www location:

It would be very much appreciated if a) you would please take very careful note of the contents of the e-mail at the www address (containing the date 16 June 2010) immediately above, and b) please also avoid sending anybody to talk to me about any of several issues involved with this letter -- who is not thoroughly familiar with the contents of this letter, and with the contents of the June 16th 2010 e-mail as well -- please. I make these requests because "explosive anger" is one of the main -- and most worrying for me -- of the symptoms of the C-PTSD injuries I suffer from:  please find copy of letter relating to this matter dated October 28th 2005 written by Dr Michael McCavert GP attached; and, the more that public officials appear to be "playing games of deception" with me regarding the overall set of exceptionally serious social issues in question, the more vulnerable I tend to become (regarding such angry outbursts) while attempting to discuss the overall set of matters in question with them.

As I have not received any follow-up (of any kind) to the August 9th 2010 letter I received from Mr Doherty (Private Secretary to former Minister O' Cuiv), and as it now seems to me that former Minister O' Cuiv never did carry out the responsible investigation I have been hoping he might, I am sending a copy of this letter to the recently appointed new Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton TD: in the hope that she will look at the whole overall situation in a holistic manner, and abandon all of what I see as the grossly irresponsible fragmentation and trivialisation of the approach being used, in relation to my situation, by public officials and bodies up to now.

With further reference to the "playing games of deception" matter I have referred to above, I feel I should also point out to you that the culmination of the "wrong doings" by public officials and bodies that Dr McCavert referred to in his October 25th 2005 letter, are well represented (in my view) by the contents of the e-mail I sent to Chief Justice John L. Murray on March 14th 2011: which, as can be seen at the www address below, I copied to Minister Joan Burton TD, and to the European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet.

Titled "Why are our public servants unlawfully abandoning the core part of our Constitution?", the e-mail in question can be viewed at the following www location:

There is further (and much earlier) closely associated information relating to the ongoing and wide-ranging difficulties I have very briefly outlined in the e-mail at the www address immediately above to Chief Justice Murray, which I have stated in the registered letters I sent to Mary Carr (Community Welfare Officer, Health Care Centre, Ballinasloe, County Galway) on February 16th 2009, and to Dr Anne Jeffers (Consultant Psychiatrist, Loughrea Day Centre) on November 20th 2008. The texts of the two registered letters in question, together with the scanned copies of the associated Post Office receipts can be viewed at the following two www locations:

Closely Related E-mail to Dr Ann Jeffers dated May 3rd 2009

  "With regard to your 'It is very hard to see a way forward' comment Minister Ó Cuív (Republic of Ireland), I'd very strongly and respectfully like to suggest to you, and to ALL of your colleagues in our Government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial), that you go back -- without any further ado or delay -- to abiding by the Tripartite Separation of Powers Doctrine that is deeply embedded in Bunreacht na hEireann (the Constitution of the Republic of Ireland), and which you all -- and particularly our Judiciary (keeping in mind Article 34.5.1 of Bunreacht na hEireann) -- have a legal obligation to abide by."  

The above excerpt is from an e-mail to Dr Jeffers (and several others) which can be viewed at:



  "In the presence of Almighty God I, John L. Murray, do solemnly and sincerely promise and declare that I will duly and faithfully and to the best of my knowledge and power execute the office of Chief Justice (or as the case may be) without fear or favour, affection or ill-will towards any man, and that I will uphold the Constitution and the laws. May God direct and sustain me."
