Some time ago, we noted that the bank had foreclosed the mortgage on Neelu Berry’s house in Ilford. Although Neelu has had a couple of run-ins with bailiffs over the summer, they were there for her vehicles, not her house, and we’d begun to wonder whether (miracle of miracles, wonder of wonders) she’d actually managed to come to an agreement with the bank, as a sensible person might.
We should have known better.
On Friday, it seems a bailiff was photographed skulking about Neelu’s soon-to-be-ex-property, trying the doors and checking things out. Frankly, although we have no great love for bailiffs, we can sympathise with those who have to deal with people like Neelu.
She hasn’t been known to resort to violence, but some freeman on the land types have: we’re thinking in particular of Sabine’s friend Norman Scarth, who lay in wait for the bailiffs who were about to repossess his house, and attacked them with a chainsaw. And then there’s Tom Crawford, whose supporters stormed a police barricade in protest against the bailiffs’ turning up at his house unannounced. In short, FOTLers can be a dangerous and unpredictable lot.
Here’s her post from Friday: (And so on and so forth for about 100 more lines which we will spare you here….)
Neelu got on her high horse about this, claiming, “The man is seen violently pushing the door handle down and tugging it to push the door open – he sticks his hand in the letterbox and violently tries pushes the door open – he is also seen peering in through the curtains, taking photographs – this is evidence of Treason”.
Of course it’s Treason with a capital T, dear. Of course it is. Also, if we’re not mistaken in our FOTL woo, it’s dishonouring your family, and will no doubt result in a £20 trillion gazillion lien on him, his heirs and descendants, and everyone he has ever known in his entire life.
Here’s the video evidence of the aforementioned violent attempts at entry:
We’ll be keeping an eye on this story, which looks as though it could develop over the next several days. Should be interesting….
