The way of the Wilsons

…le below one where the tenant had a new born baby (though to be fair, Fergus Wilson has already had a go at them). But that is where Fergus and Judith Wilson decided to go, with one of the two tenants being a wheelchair user. This apparently did not deter the Wilsons from alleging that the tenants had variously caused damage to the hot water system, resulting in a flood, and had denied access for works. Also to blame, according to the Wilsons…

Fergus Wilson is running out of protected characteristics to discriminate against.

…perhaps abandoning the choppy waters of the Malicious Communications Act, Fergus Wilson has returned to what he knows best – committing what appear to be substantial breaches of the Equality Act 2010. What now, you ask? Well he has taken to a) not letting to, and b) evicting single mothers with newborn children. Mr Wilson said he is ‘not the bad guy’ and claims the rules of Ashford Borough Council forced his hand. Mr Wilson said…

‘No DSS’ and discrimination

…d a viable potential claim. And it is a reminder (if one were needed after Fergus Wilson met the EHRC) to landlords and agents that any simple ‘blanket letting policy’ actually needs to be considered very carefully. (It is also worth mentioning that the Bar Pro Bono Unit arranged for some pro bono advice and representation by Robert Brown of Arden Chambers. These things are important.) Incidentally, isn’t it interesting how &#821…

Dismissing Fergus

…Kent Commissioner for Police. My personal memory of that campaign is that Fergus wasn’t eligible to run courtesy of his conviction for assault, but that this was never tested due to his nomination papers arriving a day late. However news reports suggest that my memory, whilst close, isn’t totally accurate. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-36105928 http://www.kentonline.co.uk/maidstone/news/court-rules-fergus-wilson-cannot-94674/ David Tw…

That was the week that was – deposits, provision of prescribed information, and Fergus Wilson

…d week overall, you might have seen stories about Fergus Wilson (yes, that Fergus Wilson) bringing a claim against a youtube vlogger, Danny Hyde, for saying rude things about him. As a result of twitter doing its thing, I am pleased to say that I (or rather Anthony Gold), together with counsel, Gerard Clarke of Blackstone Chambers, are now acting pro bono for Danny Hyde. There will be more on this when the case is done, but for now, our position i…

‘I’m not racist, I just won’t let to them’. Fergus Wilson meets the Equality Act

…oth of which John seems be be distinctly lacking. I recall dealing with Mr Fergus Wilson when I was in a position of power within the lettings industry some 15 years or so ago and regularly receiving emails from Fergus Wilson written in block capitals and orange coloured font, even then he had a decidedly personal interpretation of the law relating to letting and managing a property and would brook no argument. In the end I gave up trying to expla…

Do you see what he did there?

Fergus O’Rourke I don’t think that you’re right about the “honorific”. Who could possibly have honoured the fella ? Seriously, I seem to recall reading that he has a Ph.D in Gambian anthropology or similar. contact ‘Doctor’ is an honorific I think, even when designating a PhD. Can you imagine being his supervisor?…
