Somewhere between 0 and. 100%
The last few days there have been no clear. recordable instances of abuse.. However, while travelling on the Underground, while walking around near my home and going to friends homes, I am constantly. troubled by thoughts that those people over there. might be about to get at me; that the couple sitting in the. opposite seats laughing are in fact laughing at me; et. cetera, et cetera.
A comment by a scientist to the BSE inquiry sticks in my. mind. He described the possible scale of the epidemic as. "between 0% and 100%". It might not be happening, it. might not happen at all, to any discernable degree.... or it might be total. Without. clear recording, which seems to have become impossible the last couple of. weeks, there is no way of knowing whether the harassment. really is continuing, whether we have entered a temporary hiatus, or. whether perhaps it has perhaps stopped for now.
But for the time being I think there arent any reasons to. dicontinue these faxes. I only re-started them six. weeks ago in response to a resumption of MI5 harassment; and I think I. will need to be more convinced of absence of persecution before I discontinue my. complaints.
The Newscasters. are still watching
In the last few weeks there have been at least a. couple of fairly overt instances of "interactive watching" by newscasters. I reported this in. a previous "MI5 Persecution. Update".
These instances are really. very rare compared to 1990-91, when there were many dozens of such occurrences. Undoubtedly the reduction is. due to my practice of videotaping everything I see.. Recently I had the opportunity of showing this years "happenings" (Jon. Snow/Nicholas Witchell) to my psychiatrist, and he agreed. that in both cases the newscasters were expressing merriment without. visible cause, and that objectively it might be possible for my. claims to be true - although of course other people reported similar thoughts to. him, and this thinking is usually a symptom of. illness.

MI5 Waste Taxpayer. Millions on Pointless Hate-Campaign
Recently I was talking to an independent observer about the nature. and purpose of the perceived campaign of persecution against me. The person. I spoke to, a highly intelligent man,. said he was struck by the utter pointlessness of the perceived campaign against me. He. also said that, if my theories were in fact true, many people would have to be involved,. in the surveillance. itself, and in the technical side of the delivery of information from my home to TV studios for example, if. the "interactive watching" were happening. as described. He voiced these thoughts without any prompting from me;. but both I and other observers had arrived at pretty much. the same conclusions, some years ago.
I saw a. team of four men at Toronto Airport in 1993
To carry out the surveillance alone,. full-time, would employ four or five men, or their equivalent. in terms of man-hours. Each man would "work" an eight-hour. shift, so you would need at least three men doing the surveillance, plus a connecting link / manager. An indicator that. this estimate is correct. arrived in 1993, when I was accosted by one of a group of four men at Toronto. Airport; he said, laughing, "if he tries to run away well find him". Plainly these were the men who had. been involved in the intrusive surveillance of me for the preceding three. years.
On other occasions, I have seen the same man on two. or three occasions. On
one such occasion, at Ottawas Civic Hospital in. November 1996; he gave his
name to the doctor. as "Alan Holdsworth" or some such; my hearing is not
very good sometimes and. I am not sure of the surname, although I am sure
"Alan" was his first name.. I saw exactly the same man again in Ottawa, at
the airport, in July 1998.. Obviously, other people must be "working" with this. person; he would not be the sole agent employed in this case.
Usenet readers views on. the Cost to MI5 of Running the Campaign
Here's what a couple of other people. on internet newsgroups / Usenet (uk.misc) had to say regarding the. cost of running such an operation...
PO: >Have some sense, grow up and smell reality. What. you are talking about PO: >would take. loads of planning, tens of thousands of pounds and lots of PO: >people involved in. the planning, execution and maintenance of it. You PO: >must have a very high opinion of yourself to think you are worth. it.
PM: >But why? And why you? Do you realize how much it. would cost to keep PM: >one person under continuous surveillance for five years? Think. about PM: >all the man/hours. Say they _just_ allocated a two. man team and a PM: >supervisor. OK., Supervisor's salary, say,. #30,000 a year. Two men, PM: >#20,000 a year each. But they'd need to work. in shifts -- so it would PM: >be six men at #20,000 (which with on-costs would work out. at morelike
PM: >#30,000 to. the employer.) PM:. > PM:. >So, we're talking #30,000 x 6. #180,000. plus say, #40,000 for the PM:. >supervisor. #220,000. Then you've got the hardware involved. And PM: >any transcription that needs doing. You don't think the. 'Big Boss' PM: >would listen to hours and hours of. tapes, do you. PM:. > PM: >So, all in. all, you couldn't actually do the job for much less than PM: >a quarter million a year. Over five years. What are. you doing that makes PM: >it worth the while of the. state to spend over one and a quarter million PM:. >on you?
Those are. pretty much the sort of calculations that went through my head once I stopped to consider what it. must be costing them to run this operation. At the very least, a quarter million a year - and. probably much more, given the. intrusive and human-resource-intensive methods employed. Times nine years. Equals well over two million pounds. - and probably much,. much more.
Its. wasteful for someone with my skills to be unemployed
The wastefulness of the MI5 campaign against me is not just that of. futile expenditure on their. side. It is also extremely wasteful for someone with my talents to be unemployed and on. a disability pension. I am highly qualified in numerate. disciplines, yet am unable to work, specifically because. of the MI5 hate-campaign against me. It is a terrible waste of resources for a supposedly efficient economy like that of the. UK to be squandering the talents. of a skilled and capable worker.
I made every effort to remain in employment. for as long as I could, but ultimately I was. defeated by MI5s employment of massive resources specifically targeted on my workplaces with the sole aim. of seeing me evicted from those workplaces. You might expect this sort. of behaviour from the Stasi or. some other secret police force in a communist country where labour is cheap, and. the governments aim on seeing its citizens confined; but. for a supposedly free and efficient economy like Britains, the wastefulness resulting both directly and indirectly from. the Security Services activities is simply. criminal, and should never be allowed.
The international dimension means. the costs are multiplied many times overoer had any sense, then they have surely. taken leave of them over the last. nine years.
Four years. of persecution in Canada
The persecution re-started within less than five minutes. of my arrival in Canada, as documented above, and in. the "frequently asked questions" article on. the website. The words, "if he tries to run away well find him" spoken by one of. the harassers at Toronto Airport are now imprinted on my. mind.
A year later I emigrated to. Canada, intending to find a job and settle there, hoping that MI5s interest in. me might dim with time. I did manage to find work there, but my hopes of avoiding. Security Service interest were ground into dust. As detailed above,. I saw the same man in November 1996 and July 1998, both times in Ottawa. Apart. from these encounters, there were numerous. incidents between 1994 and 1998 of harassment, of an identical nature. and in most cases using identical words to what had occurred in the UK. It became quite clear to. me that the permanent surveillance and harassment operation which MI5 had subjected me to. in England was being. continued.
For a team. of four or five men to be employed overseas must cost a lot more than if they operate in their home country. And for. MI5 to continue the operation for a period of. over four years, continuously, must cost many hundreds of thousands of pounds.. This confirms my belief that the state is funding the campaign against mehat the. Security Service receives current annual funding of #160M.. Divided by 1850 staff, works out at #86,000. But the unit annual cost. of each "watcher" must be much higher than this, especially given the frequently mobile. and overseas nature of their actions of. the last few years. A very conservative figure might be a little over #100,000 pa for each of a team of five. people, or half a million pounds per year. For nine years, so far. So. the most conservative estimate of the surveillance element. alone is perhaps four or five million pounds since. 1990.
This. guesstimate is of course theoretical - I am not privy to inside details of. how MI5 split their funding. But to take some other examples, the cost of a US. counter-surveillance specialist per day is USD 5,000. Even if the. agents permanently assigned to me are not of this calibre - even if they. employ specialists when difficult work planting bugs etc is encountered - their. salary and support costs must still be very high. The individual agents are doing. well for themselves as they are well-paid to exercise psychopathic instincts which in any sane. society would see them in prison;. but the taxpayers who must fund this terribly wasteful exercise are being "done" out of. hundreds of thousands of pounds each. year.
It must be emphasised that the above. estimates are highly conservative.. Besides the surveillance operation, it must carry a high cost in. man-hours to propagate covert slanders through the population; to setup and maintain the "interactive watching" links. to TV and radio stations, which these organisations. continue desparately to "lie and deny"; and to. induce antipathy in co-workers which would not otherwise exist.
Why they. are wasting Millions of Pounds on a "Nobody from South London"
As remarked in the prologue to this article, it is. really most
extraordinary that the Security Service spends a chunk of its. budget,
every year for nine years so far, on a. meaningless campaign against a
"nobody from. South London". That they are spending such a large amount of
money has been confirmed. to me on several occasions, usually by oblique references to "its costing. this country millions". The supposed
"logic" behind the. persecution is that MI5 wish to avoid their harassment
of me, and the involvement of. the UK media, to be made public; yet as the reader will appreciate that is a circular. argument, "theyre doing it because they want to keep it secret and avoid humiliation. for themselves and their country" begs. the question, "why did they start doing it in the first place?",. to which in truth I myself do not know the answer.
Plainly MI5 with its. rich budget can afford half a million pounds a year
to waste on a "nobody from South London". Some time ago I. was talking to a
British surveillance professional on Compuserve who told me. "this work
costs a lot of money and. is usally because the person I am following has
done something. (usually criminal) to warrant all this money and time being
spent." Yet in this particular. case it is plainly not the "victims
fault" that the harassment is taking place. The hate-campaign. against me
is completely the creation. of the obsessive psychologies of the MI5 agents
who have. made themselves my persecutors; it is obviously a
"personal" campaign for them, and for years they misuse. taxpayer funding
to feed their insane, unnatural and fixated. fantasies.
