what is the purest form of love ?

...selfless love. 

what is love ?

...giving what is needed without expecting anything in return. 

when we expect,

we allow others to determine the hour of our happiness. 

 the only power we have,

is in our word,

say what you mean...mean what you say.

 Genesis 6

1 And it came to pass,
when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, 
and daughters were born unto them,

2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men 
that they were fair; 
and they took them wives of all which they chose.

3 And the Lord said
My spirit shall not always strive with man, 
for that he also is flesh
yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

4 There were giants in the earth in those days; 
and also after that, 
when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, 
and they bare children to them, 
the same became mighty men which were of old, 
men of renown.

Milk Up Bank Farm ~ Under Siege

Bailiffs moved in last week, with dogs to remove Paula from Milk up Bank farm, which was sheltering 350 animals at the time, Paula Campbell has run her farm as Rainbow Ark Animal Sanctuary for many years, encouraging visitors and school parties to learn about the animals living there. There have been ongoing problems with the mortgage because an assessor had valued another property wrongly, however Paula had stayed in touch with the financers Redstone Mortgage Company, and has contacted the ombudsman, and she has done everything she could to keep Rainbow Ark running and her animals cared for.

When the Bailiffs arrived with dogs Paula Campbell collapsed and was admitted to hospital, Paula was told that if she didn't leave the farm she would be sectioned. Several days later together with her son Paula was allowed back into the farmhouse where they barricaded themselves in, while Paula was inside the water was cut off so no fresh water was available at the farmhouse, an engineer from the water board attempted to enter the farm to restore the water supply but was turned away by security. Bailiffs spent the nights employing scare tactics to intimidate Paula and her son.

“K9” security firm blocked the right of way through the farm and refused to allow supporters to deliver water and medical supplies to Paula at Milk Up Bank Farmhouse. After six days Paula Campbell,was told she could collect water and was ushered off the property still maintaining that the eviction is illegal and that she did not want to leave her property. Paula says she will continue to fight for justice. The case is under appeal and Paula has an injunction to stop Bailiffs damaging or destroying any more of her property.

It doesn’t take much digging to find that Redstone Mortgage Company was fined £630,000 in 2010 by the Financial Services Authority for their poor treatment of some of their customers. The over valuation of the first property is a fraud that property value assessors seem to be committing up and down the country as a way of allowing developers to step in and purchase property cheaply.  “K9” the firm of bailiffs employed have behaved unlawfully at several points; closing of the right of way brought them to the attention of Durham Council who advised that the right of way must remain open. Police aiding and abetting bailiffs from K9 though refusing to protect Paula’s human rights have once again proven who they work for. Things are not at all as they seem at Milk Up Bank Farm, so perhaps a little more digging is needed.

Ah, could this be the real reason Paula and her Rainbow Ark have been hounded and evicted from her property? A Wind Farm ? Durham are currently trying to build a huge 50 metre wind turbine this planning application, which will generate a potential profits of £7.4 million,


Would apparently need to use Paula’s road to develop and Paula was refusing access. There may be other plans afoot but this situation certainly needs looking into very carefully. If as Paula Claims the eviction was unlawful then it seems someone has a vested interest in taking her property. This planning application will cause a nature conservancy area on Paula's property to be destroyed. There is a worldwide land grab going on at the moment, ordinary people are being evicted from their properties on tenuous and unlawful grounds and police are continuing to aid and abet bailiffs acting illegally.

Paula Campbell is everyman as we struggle through these troubled times, all she wanted was to live quietly taking care of the animals she has such an affinity with.  The world of big finance crashed into her peaceful Durham sanctuary and took everything, but this will be all of us as our lives, in turn are destabilised by outside influences, as our rights are eroded and as “developers” cast an eye over anything we own or aspire to own.
