State Entitlements Discrimination

Waiting for an internal review by Government Equalities Office of their handling of this request.

Dear Government Equalities Office,

Some years ago, I experienced considerable discriminatory difficulties securing unemployment entitlement. Although born here in the UK, I am not white. Those responsible, I'm guessing racist Job Centre staff, not satisfied with denying me entitlement, also refused to allow me to sign for National insurance stamps. The situation was never resolved and I've been menaced in response to complaints and protests.

Are you aware such criminal activities are carried out for reasons of both racism and financial (or other tangible) reward? That's to say, persecuting ethnic minorities is effectively encouraged within the local community as a means to financial gain (I go without entitlement and those frustrating my entitlement are rewarded in some way). Do you hold any information on the same?

Do you care to learn about such things or is it a matter for some other government office?

Under Section 16 of the same Act, you are obliged to provide advice and assistance. Would you kindly afford me the same?

Yours faithfully,

Sir,

Thanks for your message.

This is a sensitive query. Persons thieving others of their dole and NI entitlements demonstrate hate enough: there's little doubt they'd go further. I'm unable to furnish you with additional information for fear it would prejudice me. In any event you hold enough information.

Don't forget your obligations under the Act: section 16 seems to have escaped your attention. Have a read of it before you offer me response.

Regards
