-= my. response to the harassment -=
My first reaction in. 1990/91 was to assume that if I broke contact then they would not be able to follow and. would lose interest. So I did the things. that have been suggested by other people; I sold my television, stopped listening. to the radio and tried to withdraw away from the sources of abuse as. much as possible. I reasoned that they must have more important things. to deal with and that normal people would simply leave me alone if it were made difficult for. them to continue their harassment.
I. reckoned without the sheer vindictiveness of the abusers. They did not let up but. instead "got to" people around me, mainly people at work, to do their dirty work for them. I went to see my GP, who refused to. believe what he was being told, and. refused to direct me on to anyone who could be of practical assistance. It was not until. three years had passed that the GP admitted the matter was outside his competence. and suggested going to the police.
In. the summer of 1994 we called in counter-surveillance experts from a private. detective agency to sweep our house and telephone for bugging devices.. They conducted a thorough search and found nothing; but as noted above, since the existence of surveillance was. being forced in my face by the harassers, you would expect them to have. taken the possibility of a counter-surveillance. sweep into account when planning the type of devices to be. employed.
In Easter 1995 I made a complaint to my local Police. station in London, but the police have. not expressed any intention to do anything about the continuing harassment ("we're not saying it's happening and. we're not saying it isn't happening" were the. words used). I think the officer I spoke to at Easter wasn't aware of it happening, although other. members of the police force obviously. do know.
From April 1995 until the present time the matter has been. discussed in a lot of detail on the Usenet (Internet) "uk.misc". newsgroup. That discussion has given birth to the article which you. are now reading. My hopes in posting to Usenet were. that wider publicizing would discourage the security services from continuing. their harassment, and "draw people out" into concurring with the truth of what was being said. Neither. of those have followed, but the discussion has served a purpose in. allowing this structured report to be. created.
