Single Homeless Project: Will a County Court Judge rule that we consented to declarations for online referral that we are paying our own salaries and that we are both two lunatics?

Declan and I are clients of the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme. Last May we were housed by the Single Homeless Project (SHP), one of three charitable organisations that operate the Housing First service. Declan is currently suing SHP under the Data Protection Act for circulating among any number of support agencies via online referral that we consented to declarations that we are paying our own salaries and that we are both mentally ill. Since submitting his claim to the Royal Courts of Justice on 12 September, Declan has repeatedly told SHP GLA Housing First in writing and verbally that the immediate and thorough rectification of our data is a prerequisite to any discussion about Look Ahead Care and Support taking over our support (see blog of 23 October, "Look Ahead Care and Support: Seeking to illegally break our contract with the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme under threat of eviction"). Declan wrote this email to SHP GLA Housing First tonight very much with an eviction court trial in mind:

Heavey v Single Homeless Project
Brief details of claim

On 19 March 2014, the Claimant made a formal Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 1998 for any information held about him on the Defendant’s computerised database. This information was only submitted by the Defendant to the Claimant on 5 August 2014, following instruction from the Information Commissioner's Office. The Claimant then discovered that personal data contained in a printed referral form dated 17 March 2014 had been inaccurately entered online by the Defendant and submitted to the Clearing House for accommodation purposes. On 15 August 2014, the Claimant and his employer both wrote to the Defendant about inaccurate financial data that leaves the Claimant open to accusations of deception and fraud, but neither has been able to elicit a response from the Defendant on the matter. The Claimant is therefore making an application to the Court for a declaration that the Defendant has acted unlawfully and an order that the data controller rectify those financial data and any other personal data in respect of which he is the data controller and which contain an expression of opinion which appears to the Court to be based on the inaccurate financial data. He also seeks an award of damages and punitive damages for breach of data protection obligations.

Our Church and State website restored for 100,000 visitors per month

This month and last month our Church and State website at churchandstate.org.uk was blocked by our web host because we exceeded our limit of 25,000 visitors per month. This month we exceeded the limit in less than three weeks, so we have upgraded a notch to be able to cope with up to 100,000 visitors per month. The most popular articles so far this month:

Declan is currently updating his complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This is his revised paragraph 12 concerning discriminatory surveillance: nothing to hide, nothing to fear?
12. It is important to underscore that the discriminatory surveillance suffered by the Applicant and his wife is not an isolated event. Rather, it is emblematic of a larger pattern of surveillance by law enforcement officials in the UK that has been well-documented by international and domestic human rights bodies. In May 2012 Liberty, one of the UK's leading civil liberties and human rights organisations, expressed concern that "state sanctioned surveillance against specific individuals takes place on a massive scale". British police and government agencies are requesting personal information about Facebook users more than almost anywhere else in the world (behind the USA and India), according to the company's Government Requests Report 2013. Since the Guardian began publishing material leaked by US whistleblower Edward Snowden in June 2013, there have been a spate of top secret GCHQ documents reported on and published around the world. On 19 February 2014 Intercept journalist Glenn Greenwald, through whom Snowden's revelations came to the world, listed some of these documents: "They include detailed reports on GCHQ's attempts to compromise basic encryption methods used to safeguard internet security, the GCHQ's role in spying on the Brazilian oil company Petrobras, the GCHQ's targeting of UN charities and officials, the GCHQ's use of 'dirty tricks' including 'honeytraps' and fake victim blog posts, the GCHQ's attacks on 'hactivists', GCHQ's surveillance of YouTube and Blogger activity and related activities to covertly influence internet discourse, GCHQ's surveillance through phone apps such as 'Angry Birds', and GCHQ's covert monitoring of visitors to the WikiLeaks website." In February 2014, the Independent reported that GCHQ's online covert actions follow the "4 D's": deny, disrupt, degrade, deceive. Privacy groups have now commenced lawsuits against GCHQ for the use of malware to spy on mobile and internet users across the UK.

Look Ahead Care and Support: Seeking to illegally break our contract with the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme under threat of eviction

Part 1: Declan filed his claim against the Mayor of London in the High Court this morning

At the beginning of our tenancy we kept wondering why we were put in an accommodation under the tutelage of the Mayor of London when we had been evicted from our previous flat (see blog of 15 October, "Newham College: We reserve the right to terminate your course at any time") and forced to sleep on the streets of London for over a year, where we were harassed and threatened by the police (see blog of 2 October, "City of London Police: If you want to challenge our word against yours again, you need to make an application to the High Court for permission to apply for judicial review"). But the email below to the Single Homeless Project, one of three charities that run the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) Housing First programme, might just provide a hint of the reason. It concerns Look Ahead Care and Support, another premier homelessness organisation, which is seeking to illegally break our contract as clients of GLA Housing First. Hopefully Declan has finished this email with an angle for the press upon our receipt of the threatened eviction notice:

Are we now going to be put through another three eviction courts for the second time? This is Declan's account of the last three eviction courts - two District Courts and a Circuit Court - in his updated complaint to the United Nations under Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights:
Paragraph 25 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations

25. On 17 October 2012, Deputy District Judge Peart issued an accelerated possession order granting Ms McKenzie possession of the Applicant and his wife’s flat on 1 November 2012 (see Annex 16, Belinda McKenzie: Accelerated Possession Order by Deputy District Judge Peart, p. 43). At an appeal hearing, District Judge Alderson acknowledged that there was a note in the file from Peart J stating that he had not read the Applicant’s defence. Alderson J conceded that Ms McKenzie’s claim for accelerated possession did not contain the correct paperwork; however, because he had all the paperwork relating to the tenancy in the Applicant’s appeal bundle, he set aside Peart J’s accelerated possession order and issued an ordinary possession order with the same effect, i.e. eviction within two weeks of his order (see Annex 17, Belinda McKenzie: Possession Order by District Judge Alderson, p. 44). On 11 March 2013, Circuit Judge Cryan refused the Applicant permission to appeal to the Circuit Court against a decision by the District Court to refuse him a stay of eviction. Cryan J had before him a statement dated 5 March 2013 from Ms McKenzie’s ex-husband, Dr Nigel McKenzie, a consultant psychiatrist in Highgate Mental Health Centre, stating that the Applicant and his wife’s flat was required for somebody with a mental illness. He dismissed the Applicant’s request for permission to appeal on the basis that it had no reasonable prospects of success (see Annex 19, Belinda McKenzie: Eviction Order by Circuit Judge Cryan, p. 50). Accordingly, the Applicant and his wife were evicted from their flat by the bailiff on 14 March 2013.

Newham College: We reserve the right to terminate your course at any time

I have been attending a course in care two nights a week at Newham College in East Ham for a month now, with assignments that can take up to two days a week to complete. Nonetheless, any week now my class can be informed that the course has been cancelled due to lack of numbers, we were told on Monday night. I have yet to receive a reply to this email to Newham College Principal and Chief Executive Di Gowland yesterday and have no idea if I will be informed tonight that all the work I have put into this course - at the expense of other important work for N4CM's Church and State website (and for which I am paid a salary) - has been for nothing:

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 previous complaint to the United Nations, MI5 whistleblower David Shayler also lived with human rights activist Belinda McKenzie in the same 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.

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.

City of London Police: If you want to challenge our word against yours again, you need to make an application to the High Court for permission to apply for judicial review

Part 1: City of London Police - threatened with arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer (APPEAL)

Paragraph 34 of Declan's updated complaint to the United Nations

34. Both the Applicant and his wife are deeply concerned that the accommodation blockade through surveillance that they have experienced in London and in Brighton for near on two years has now been extended to beyond the close of the WLCHC winter night shelters on 13 April 2014, especially as the Applicant has been diagnosed with asthma, which is a chronic or life long disease that can be serious – even life threatening. This situation is exacerbated by the Applicant and his wife having no choice but to spend their nights sleeping in night buses since 23 April 2014, the Applicant’s wife having been threatened the night before by two City of London Police officers with an arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer (see Annex 27, City of London Police: Police complaint, pp. 71-72). The following is an extract from the Applicant’s wife’s N4CM blog of 23 April under the title, “Barbican security guard calls the Police to have us removed... and I am threatened with an arrest on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer” (this blog contains a photograph of the Applicant packing his bags with one of the police officers clearly visible in the foreground):

Last night a Barbican security guard called the police as we were bedding down, and PC 667CP and PC 602CP from Bishopsgate Police Station were on us in minutes. They threatened to dump our belongings onto the street if we didn't move immediately, which then became they were going to come down later with street cleaners to hose us out, which then became two female officers were going to arrest me later on the trumped-up charge of assaulting a police officer. (I straight away thought of an article I read a couple of weeks ago about a gang of Romanian rough sleepers who terrorised residents, tourists and shopkeepers for two years around Marble Arch, one of the capital’s best known and most central landmarks, because the police could do nothing about them.) We eventually decided to spend the night in King's Cross train station rather than risk my arrest on such a serious trumped-up charge and today have come to the conclusion that we have no choice now but to spend our nights sleeping in night buses until the Single Homeless Project comes through with their offer of a flat, first tabled on 21 January.
