Live-in landlady does it again!

As I said in the blog of 22 August Injunction hearing against our live-in landlady, District Judge Sterlini refused Declan an injunction against our live-in landlady, human rights activist Belinda McKenzie, due to a legal technicality: Declan should have first issued a claim following the removal of our flat door. We are now extremely interested to know if another district judge is going to put aside the law and grant Belinda the accelerated procedure for possession of our flat despite the fact that she is not entitled to it. This is the defence Declan lodged with the Court last Thursday, and served upon Belinda that afternoon:

We are actually in disbelief: the very same week Belinda had to sign an undertaking with the Court not to harass us, we received virtually a replica of a claim she had to withdraw last April because of the "wrong information" she provided the Court, to quote from an email of hers. If anything, her latest claim is even more outrageous. Perhaps I am missing something, but why would Belinda think she is above law that applies to everybody else? She has yet to withdraw this latest claim, so we assume at the very least she believed, and still believes, that she is immune from prosecution for making false statements (see Additional Information, paras. 1-4, of the Defence above).

As Declan points out in supporting documents (page 6 and page 12), MI5 whistleblower David Shayler lived in one of the rooms below us for a couple of years until 2007. It is unfortunate that 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 published in 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.

Belinda even has Shayler's cat. I learnt this last month after she sent an email to herself that magically appeared in our Inbox (see graphic below)! The email contained a link to a YouTube video about 7/7 being an inside job, which had been partially filmed in her back garden. Belinda is involved in many causes; in fact, in 2009 she wrote an email to an associate of ours in America stating she would like her house to become an "in-house charity" for impoverished activists supported by "some kind of international fund". She also happens to be the co-founder of the Association of McKenzie Friends, a lay legal advocacy group which was set up, they say, "because too many victims of white collar crimes encountered too many problems and their helpers and supporters as well".

For more information about Shayler, there is an excellent Esquire article in the blog of 8 August Property Warrant: Open Letter to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister’s response to Declan’s open letter about a warrant for our address can be read here.
