Open Letter to the Home Secretary on our live-in landlady's threat to have us physically removed from our flat

Unbelievable! Not only has our live-in landlady, human rights activist Belinda McKenzie, threatened us in writing with physical removal from our flat and the termination of all our services on 26 January, but this afternoon we lost our wireless internet connection to the router in the room below us for the umpteenth time. Declan had intended waiting two weeks for his Open Letter to the Rt Hon Theresa May MP, Home Secretary (see previous blog), but has decided to send it now before things get any rougher:

Below is MI5 whistleblower David Shayler. As Declan points out in his letter to the Home Secretary, he lived for a couple of years in one of the rooms below us, until 2007 more or less. By around 2007, he had been successfully neutralised: he declared himself to be Jesus, became a squatter and changed his name to Delores Kane. A New Statesman article dated 11 September 2006 featuring Belinda and Shayler gives no indication that he believed he was the Messiah at that time; whilst a Daily Mail interview with Shayler explicitly shows that he believed himself to be Jesus by June 2007.

According to BBC Panorama, Shayler "caused the biggest crisis of official secrecy since the spy catcher affair". In 2002, he was jailed for seven weeks for breaking the Official Secrets Act.
