The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing... Why are the BBC not interested in exposing evil? Instead they damage the reputation of a good man. Perhaps they wish to protect senior figures & governments?

This profound statement was by 18th century Englishman, Edmund Burke.  Chris Chadwell, over the years has "stood up, stuck his head above the parapet" in outspoken criticism of wrong-doing on a number of occasions before.  It is not comfortable being a whistle-blower.  He feels, having recovered sufficiently from illness, compelled to draw attention to these serious matters.  Taking on those in powerful positions, institutions as a whole, governments and famous names, can be daunting but it is the right thing to do, as most people do not have the confidence to do so nor enjoy the level of education he has.  Others chose not to get involved.  Chris has always been the 'Good Samaritan'.  He was briefly a police officer in the Hertfordshire but decided not to pursue this as a career.  Nevertheless, the training he received has proven invaluable; he has intervened to protect people on a number of occasions, knowing how to intervene, without escalating the situation and so far, he has yet to be hit (although came very close yesterday when a near neighbour threatened and verbally abused him with obscenities; Chris stayed cool, calm and collected and will be reporting the matter to the police and local council; he will be 60 this summer, has been seriously ill for several years and recently had operations for kidney stones - the culprit, of comparable height was in his twenties and there were 4 of his family members there). In the 1980s and 1990s he intervened on trains to save ticker-collectors (working alone) who were about to be assaulted.  A few years back, he rightly told off a young thug (about 17) on a train, who threatened to kill him, but walked away.....  The trouble is one, even without significant illness, are slower and weaker as you age.  Chris did well during self-defence training but has to be more caution these days - though has always felt that as he was in a position to intervene, he should, rather than hiding away.  People should be able to go about their business without violent and abusive people scaring or assaulting them.
