A recent article in Bristol 24/7 about ‘engineer’ Paul Lloyd, now apparently relaunching himself as a ‘social media influencer’ with the help of the self-styled ‘independent’ media outlet, caught the attention of one of our readers.
Mr Lloyd is probably best known in Bristol as the former boss of the Bristol office of Camelot Property Management, who encountered a few legal problems a few years back. Indeed, under cross examination in court, ‘engineer’ and ‘social media influencer’ Paul Lloyd proved himself something of a thick, fat, ignorant retard of the highest order.
However, should we really be surprised that a media outlet owned by landlords, small local business and various petite-bourgeoise interests is keen to rehabilitate the reputation of the type of boss class liar and bully these people love too favour and promote?
Here’s a comment our reader left below the 24/7 article that was immediately removed without explanation. A letter to the editor has also been ignored – so far.
What a bunch of tossers!
There’s a few problems with this article in terms of truth and honesty…
For starters, Paul Lloyd is NOT an engineer. He is a disgraced former property manager for ‘Camelot Property Management’. He was sacked for gross misconduct, including illegal and abusive treatment towards residents.
I lived at a property Paul managed in Broomhill. He was the manager of the Bristol office. I was part of a group of residents who took him to court in March 2017.
I’m surprised the writer didn’t do a basic fact check. It was a high profile court case, covered extensively by the Bristol Post, The Bristolian, BBC local news and Radio 4’s ‘The Today Programme’. You only have to do a basic internet search of ‘Paul Lloyd’ to discover what he did.
We went months without any hot water or heating and people were getting electric shocks from the shower. Paul sent us a threatening email saying we would face immediate evicted if we dared complain to the Environmental Heath Department or the Council.
Paul Lloyd was a bully who made our lives a misery. He seemed to target vulnerable young women most of all. He tried to force a young woman to move out by telling her she would be ‘ripped apart by bailiffs dogs’ and ‘have all her belongings tossed into the street’ if she didn’t move out before her notice period ended.
He illegally evicted a 22 year old women from a property in Speedwell. A group of men forced their way into her bedroom at 10 o’clock at night and physically threw her onto the street in her night dress. She suffered from a chronic health condition, and they wouldn’t even let her go to the kitchen to get her medication out of the fridge.
He would often perform unannounced room inspections late at night (without the legally required 24 hours notice). Sometimes we would come back from the shower to find one of his employees going through our stuff. They would repeatedly break-in to the room of a young woman I lived with at Broomhill (still to this day I don’t understand why they kept picking on her). She would come home from work to find her door smashed open and all her belongings strewn about the room. I remember one night after this had happened for the third time, she was in floods of tears, and it took about 2 hours to calm her down. She said it was making her feel extremely low and she was having suicidal thoughts.
He was so arrogant and narcissistic, he thought he could get away with his abusive behaviour. But he got found out. Eventually all of this got back to the Camelot head office – and he was sacked. In this article he says he’s ‘taking some time out’. This implies he left voluntarily. That is not true.
Paul Lloyd says he has mental health problems, so we should all feel sorry for him. But what about the mental health of the people he victimised? We suffered domestic abuse at the hands of Paul Lloyd. Some people were diagnosed with PTSD and are still getting treatment today. He was like a lurking threat – always there. He acted like our legal rights didn’t exist, and the UK housing laws simply didn’t apply to him.
This article is a cover up. It is fake news designed to re-write history and cleanse Paul Lloyd’s rotten reputation, so that he can make money as a ”social influencer’. I find it sickening that he’s using ‘Mind’ – a mental health charity, to absolve himself, when in reality he wrecked the mental health of literally dozens of people.
You can see from the way he’s tried to cover up his past that he holds no remorse or regret for the people he wronged. He also shows no concern or respect for the journalist Martin Booth, whose professional integrity is put at risk with being associated with these lies.
