The Mayor of London's Clearing House service: Declan's last-ditch attempt to avoid High Court (Judicial Review) proceedings has failed

Mayor of London Boris Johnson

The nature of Bureaucracy seems too often to lead good, well meaning people into decisions that don't connect with fair outcomes. Hope you can sort this out without further ado, but I doubt it.

Yesterday Declan was told he would receive a like for like tenancy agreement no later than 12 noon today. At 11.54am, we received an entirely new agreement which we now have to challenge in the High Court (Judicial Review) in an action against Greater London Authority. Here is the wrong decision by the Mayor of London's Clearing House service that renders non-renewable our renewable 2 year fixed term Assured Shorthold Tenancy:

District Judge Silverman ruled last month that the county court has no authority to intervene in what is an administrative dispute with a public body.

As Declan points out in the updated complaint to the United Nations that he is currently putting the finishing touches to, 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.
