Keith Hill MP (Labour - Streatham), my elected representative, as ever refuses to help.
Ten Thousand Faxes, and Still No Breakthrough
In the last three years I have sent at least 5,301 faxes directly from my computer, and 4,478 faxes through Demon’s extremely useful TPC.INT service, to politicians and the media, in the subject of the “MI5 Persecution”. This has obviously cost me quite a lot of money, not to mention time and effort. The aim of all this communication has been to try to put discussion of the “MI5 persecution” into the public arena; unfortunately, this aim has not been achieved, yet.
This fax will be my last transmission for the time being, since the summer recess is almost upon us. Depending on what the persecutors do between now and the autumn, I may or may not resume faxing later this year. In the article dated 18/6/99 I said I’d stop the articles if MI5 left me alone; but they seem to have no fear of these articles, since they kept pursuing me in Poland and after my return to the UK. Again, if they leave me alone this summer then I won’t have to resume the articles in the autumn; but I think it’s fairly obvious that MI5 have nothing better to do with their time than to go after me, and it’s almost pointless to make this offer when I know they won’t cease harassing me.
TPC.INT 1996, 1997, 1998.....
Three years ago I was living in Canada, and the only economic way of sending faxes to the UK was through the international email-to-fax gateway TPC.INT. This highly useful and totally free service converts emails (which may have Postscript-formatted attachments) into faxes which it delivers to any number within the UK. Using the telephone book, I constructed a computer database of M.P.s’ fax numbers, and used this database to deliver copies of the “FAQ - frequently asked questions” article which I’d written some time earlier.
This service is still operational, but given that I have resided in London for the last year, I do not need to use Demon’s service when I can send articles directly from my own computer using its fax/modem, which is what I have been doing since 1998. However, instead of just sending the FAQ article, I’ve been composing articles on various aspects of MI5’s treatment of me. Since their activities have been going on for nine years now, and there have been various aspects to their actions; they have harassed me at work, at home, through the media, etc; I have so far not run out of things to say, particularly since their harassment of me is still ongoing, and I have been able to record the actual words used by their paid agents on my minidisc-walkman. Since mid-March 1999 I have been sending these articles pretty much every weekend.
Anyway, as mentioned above, I intend this to be the final transmission before the summer recess, and it would be nice not to have to continue these articles in the autumn. But that’s something that depends on them, not me, and their attitude is unfortunately clear.
Why am I sending these articles?
Because I want the harassment to stop. The cynical reader might think from these articles that I “thrive on adversity” and would be lost without the harassment to complain about; but that is not the case. In a perfect world I would like to return to work, in a job unsullied by MI5’s attempts to ruin it; I would like to live in a house which wasn’t bugged, with my words being repeated at me wherever I go; I would like a normal life. I do not particularly thrive on adversity; I am beaten down by adversity; the purpose of these faxes is to try to bring the whole matter out into the public arena, where the rights and wrongs would be visible to all, and once that were to happen, the adversity might cease. I have had something approaching a normal life a couple of times in the last nine years, but always, in the end, MI5 turn up and ruin it. I just want these people out of my life, permanently, and the only way of doing that is to kick this business into the public arena, and shame MI5 so that they are incapable of doing me further damage.
Having said that, unfortunately it seems fairly obvious by now that these faxed articles are not going to achieve that aim. Some of the recipients know what I am saying is true; but they choose to stay quiet - wisely, because if they were to admit the truth of these articles, then they would bring the wrath of MI5 down on their heads. Presumably most recipients do not know these articles are true; their reaction to me is the same as my reaction to the other apparently deluded people who have sent me email after reading my webpage to tell me it happened to them too; the reaction being, “leave me alone, I don’t want to know”. It’s sad that many M.P.s have given me this reaction, because my case genuinely is different; I genuinely am telling the truth, and the harassment genuinely is happening to me, and some recipients of this fax know this to be true.
“Write to your own M.P.”
My local M.P. is Mr Keith Hill, Labour-Streatham. He refuses to have anything to do with me. He refuses to represent me, he refuses to talk to me, he has told me not to communicate with him. He has done absolutely nothing to help me, and he has told me he will do absolutely nothing to help me.
Other M.P.s, recipients of these faxes, have for quite some time been telling me, “write to your own M.P.”. On 23 March 1998, Paul Burstow M.P. wrote to me; “Whilst I take the issues that you raise seriously, there is a strict Parliamentary convention that one Member of Parliament does not take up another’s casework. Can I suggest that you write to your own M.P. at the House of Commons?” Hopefully the above paragraph will make clear that I have written to my own M.P. and he has proved unhelpful.
Other M.P.s have told me the same thing. On 21 May 1998, John McFall M.P. told me, “... there is a parliamentary convention that M.P.s do not take up cases of people not in their constituency..... therefore can I suggest that you write to your local M.P. who will be better able to assist you.” And on 8 June 1998, Michael Foster M.P. wrote to me that “M.P.s are inundated with unsolicited faxes .... M.P.s have a considerable amount of constituent work to deal with, thus other M.P.s constituents cease to be of concern in so far as they should have a voice and representation”.
Simon Hughes M.P. wrote to me on 5 November 1998, “There is a strict parliamentary convention which states that I am not able to represent individuals who are not constituents of mine. My advice is that you find out who your own Member of Parliament is rather than circulating your story to all M.P.s.”. To my suggestion that Keith Hill M.P. was doing nothing to help me, George Foulkes M.P. sent the following faxed response; “If Keith Hill your own M.P. cannot help no-one else in the House of Commons can.” But it is clearly not a case of “cannot” help, but “will not” help. I have detailed in letters to Mr Hill specific ways in which he could help me, first of all by finding a lawyer to represent me. It is Mr Hill’s job as a Member of Parliament to represent his constituents; if he chooses not to do so, then it reflects badly on him.
Kate Hoey Sympathises, but says, “Write to your own M.P.”
Here is part of a letter Ms Hoey sent to me on 15 June 1999.
I appreciate that you have concerns about the persecution and harassment that you feel you are experiencing but I note that your MP is in fact Keith Hill. There is a very strict Parliamentary code which means that M.P.s can only take action on matters that relate to their own constituents. I am aware that you are not happy with the fact that you do not feel Mr Hill will assist you but I am afraid that I cannot take any action on your behalf.
Ms Hoey plainly belongs in the camp of people who do not know about the reality of the “MI5 Persecution”. She doubts its existence; “the harassment you feel you are experiencing”. She urges me to see Mr Hill’s assistance, as have other M.P.s detailed above.
Really, the fact that I am unable to obtain assistance from any other M.P., if my own alleged “representative” Mr Hill chooses not to represent me, is a very basic weakness in the Parliamentary system. Being forced to rely on your own M.P., when that M.P. is selective as to the constituent cases he undertakes, is simply an error in the system. Either M.P.s should be compelled to undertake all cases placed before them by their constituents; or if they are not so compelled, then it should be possible for their constituents to place their cases before other M.P.s.
With the system as it is now, cases like mine “fall through the cracks”. My own M.P. won’t even talk to me, and has on several occasions refused to be of any assistance whatsoever. I seem to remember that following the death of Mr Fayed’s son in Paris, he wrote to many M.P.s to request that they place questions before the Government over the possible role of the secret services in this alleged killing. If he was able to write to M.P.s who have “no jurisdiction”, then why shouldn’t I do the same?
A Year in the Life
Prior to April 1998 I had merely been sending by postal service and by fax copies of the “FAQ” article summarising the entirety of the MI5 persecution. But in April 1998 I started sending freshly written pieces on what was being done to me, with “MI5 Persecution Update” pages listing events in the MI5 Persecution which had occurred to me recently. The “persecution update” pages were particularly valuable to me, since although I may not have any way of preventing MI5 making verbal slanders against me, at least I can record them on the minidisc-walkman which I carry around with me much of the time, and once they have been recorded, I can psychologically expel them from my system by posting the computer audio files on my website (in the Evidence section), and informing fax recipients of the nature of recent incidents and the location of computer files describing these incidents. The internet and the fax-machine is a powerful tool in the fight against the evil of the Security Service.
The first such article, as mentioned, was in April 1998 and titled “MI5 Persecution: How Could It Be True?”. This article covered the very basic question of whether the claims I make are the product of mental illness, which I do suffer from, or whether MI5 have used my illness as a cover for their activities, and indeed have induced (particularly in 1992) a much worse state of illness than I would otherwise have, for the express purpose not only of damaging me but also of ensuring that my future claims of being persecuted by them would be considered symptomatic of that illness and therefore disregarded.
The second article in April, “Why do you think MI5 are responsible?” asks the question, “have they ever denied that they are the Security Service?” to which the answer is a very clear “no they haven’t”. If I’d been wrong in my guess then “they” would surely have crowed over my mistake, but they have never admitted or denied that they are employees of MI5.
In early January 1996 I flew on a British Airways jet from London to Montreal; also present on the plane, about three or four rows behind me, were two young men, one of them fat and voluble, the other silent. It was quite clear that these two had been planted on the aircraft to “wind me up”. The fat youth described the town in Poland where I had spent Christmas, and made some unpleasant personal slurs against me. Most interestingly, he said the words, “he doesn’t know who we are”.
Now I find this particular form of words very interesting, because while it is not a clear admission, it is only a half-hearted attempt at denial of my guess that “they” = “MI5”. Had my guess been wrong, the fat youth would surely have said so more clearly.
In November 1998 I sent two articles on successive weekends, the first about “Harassment at Work” and the second on “BBC Newscasters Spying on my Home”. The first covered mainly events at my former employers in Oxford during 1992, when I was harassed constantly by manager Steve Mitchell for most of 1992, and was forced to begin attending hospital as an outpatient as a result. This harassment was obviously of Mitchell’s own volition, since I observed him harass similarly another new worker two years later; but it was also at MI5’s instigation, since they kept providing him with words from my home life which he then proceeded to abuse me with. Yet this is not the only employment that MI5 have destroyed; the MI5 persecution has lasted from the end of my student days until the present time, during which I have had three jobs, all of which have been in various ways destroyed by MI5’s deliberate actions.
In March 1999 I decided to try to force the issue once and for all. Ever weekend for the last four months, apart from two weeks when I was on holiday, I have sent original articles by fax directly from my computer to Westminster politicians. Here is a summary of the articles of the last four months;
9903a How to Identify the Persecutors
9903b Browse Website www.five.org.uk
9904a Their use of Schizophrenia to discredit my claims
9904b Comparing the MI5 Persecution with German "Final Solution"
9904c MI5 are Plainly Trying to Kill Me
9904d MI5 Waste Taxpayer Millions on Pointless Hate-Campaign
9905a Four Years of "MI5 Persecution" Posts on Internet Newsgroups
9905b MI5 Agents are Clinical Psychopaths
9905c BBC Newscasters Lie & Deny They're Watching Me
9905d Molestation during Travel
9906a MI5 are Afraid to Admit They're Behind the Persecution
9906b No Justice for the Victims of MI5
9906c MI5 Have Systematically Destroyed My Life
9907a Harassment through the Radio
To my deep worry these fourteen faxed articles have still not achieved the objective of kicking the matter out into the public arena and forcing an admission either from the persecutors, or from those “in the know”, which includes some M.P.s.
I don’t really know what else to do to try to bring the “MI5 persecution” out into the open. I would have expected that these weekly faxed articles would have had some effect, but the only result has been M.P.s telling me to contact my own representative Mr Hill who refuses to talk to me. I understand the convention that M.P.s deal with their own constituents and not those of other M.P.s, but there seems to be a gap in the process since it allows your own M.P. to refuse to deal with you, and then you are totally denied any representation at all.
The only conclusion I can inform the readership of these articles of, is that there is no conclusion to this matter, yet! Three years of intermittent articles, and four months of faxes every weekend, have been absorbed by some of the most powerful people in the country, to no effect.
Whether these articles continue in the Autumn is entirely up to the “opposition”. I offered them a cessation of complaints if they would leave me alone on holiday in June/July, and they went right ahead and harassed me anyway, on holiday and after I returned to London. If MI5 cease their activities now, then I won’t have to continue these faxes in the autumn; but I suspect they won’t cease, which means you’re in for more articles later this year. “There will be no conclusion.”
