Mayor of London Boris JohnsonHeavey v Greater London Authority
In the Central London County Court
In the matter of a claim for damages against the Greater London Authority for depriving the Claimant of his right of review, in respect of its decision to terminate his and his wife's eligibility for their flat, and opportunity to appeal the outcome of the review to an independent tribunal if he was not satisfied.
Threat to life and wellbeing (paragraph 16):
We were evicted from our previous flat on 14 March 2013 because according to our then live-in landlady's ex-husband, Dr Nigel McKenzie, a consultant psychiatrist in Highgate Mental Health Centre, our flat was needed for somebody with a mental illness. As Declan mentions in paragraph 15(ii) of his particulars of claim above, former MI5 whistleblower David Shayler also lived with human rights activist Belinda McKenzie in the same political 'safe house' for a couple of years until 2007. It is unfortunate Shayler then declared that he was the Messiah, became a squatter, and was subsequently ridiculed in the press for changing his name to Delores Kane. A New Statesman article dated 11 September 2006 featuring Shayler and Belinda gives no indication that Shayler believed he was the Messiah at that time; whilst a Daily Mail interview with Shayler explicitly shows he believed himself to be Jesus by June 2007. He has never regained his normal self.
