St Mungo's Broadway: Seeking to illegally break our tenancy agreement under threat of eviction?

Last Wednesday Declan's case against the Mayor of London's Greater London Authority (GLA) for terminating our eligibility to our flat without a right of review or appeal was struck out by a district court judge. We are hoping we will not have to appeal, but just in case we are left with no other option, Declan has just sent the email below to the chief executive of St Mungo's Broadway, whose charity for the homeless is commissioned by the GLA to run the Mayor's Clearing House service. At the moment Declan is putting the finishing touches to his updated complaint to the United Nations pursuant to Article 19 (freedom of expression) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Later tonight I will add this email as an annex to the complaint:

For the Preliminary Hearing
3 February 2016


As Declan points out in the updated complaint to the United Nations that he is currently working on, 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. 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 that Shayler declared himself the Messiah in 2007, 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 him the following year reveals he believed himself to be Jesus by June 2007. He has never regained his normal self.

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.
