The danger of this tenancy is finally revealed

Declan and I received a support plan from the Single Homeless Project (SHP) this morning. "I feel that they both demonstrate symptoms of mental ill health," writes someone who has not even met us. Moreover, according to our tenancy agreement, our support provider is the Family Mosaic Housing Association, not the SHP!

Declan's complaint to the UN can be found in my blog of 6 May, "Threat to life: updated complaint to the United Nations" (paragraphs 46-52 outline why the Vatican and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church should be monitored), and his most recent email to Mayor of London Boris Johnson was posted in my blog of 10 July, "Newham Council: Mayor of London lends his weight" (nothing in that or any other email regarding our impression that we should have received a furnished flat). The SHP raises the question for us, just how safe are we now in accommodation we secured two months ago through the No Second Night Out and Housing First programmes that the Mayor of London funds.


On 14 March 2013 we were evicted from our previous flat 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 states in paragraph 8 of his complaint to the UN, MI5 whistleblower David Shayler also lived with human rights activist Belinda McKenzie in the same activist 'safe' house for a couple of years until 2007. It is indeed 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.

The Esquire article below* is mentioned in a Guardian article dated 27 March 2012. It is an eye-opener, highlighting the monitoring and surveillance that Shayler had to live with back in 2000, and the contradictory briefings and slanders that were coming out of the British establishment and the media. The author, Dr Eamonn O'Neill, is a lecturer in journalism at Strathclyde University.

BBC PANORAMA: The David Shayler Affair (August 1998)

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.
