PCC / Murphy

I just sent a bunch of e-mails to PCC, with copies to Steve Pitt, Gerald Vernon-Jackson, Stephen Morgan, the3million and Shelter. My e-mail is acting up big time, so I don’t know whether the e-mails actually went out. I forwarded them to The News as well.

In 2019, I had one of my clients in the Netherlands call Gerald Vernon-Jackson – the local city council leader – to ask for help with my situation because that situation meant that I was unable to support myself. I had just come home in the middle of the night to find that the locks had been picked once again and a small act of vandalism had been carried out again.

The lock-picking is one of the reasons why I haven’t been able to support myself for a long time. (Because it provides access to my computer equipment, among other things.)

Between that call and the day I finally got to talk with Mr Vernon-Jackson, there had been other developments. (My landlord was making another attempt to evict me.) Mr Vernon-Jackson did enable me to combat that eviction attempt but he did not do a thing about my crappy situation that meant that I could not support myself. Mr Vernon-Jackson spent a heck of a lot of time with me that day, which surprised me, but I realised why he had probably done that when I saw the letter that he sent to my landlord. Mr Vernon-Jackson repeatedly called me “vulnerable” for a while and I think that he spent time with me to assess how “vulnerable” I was.

Nothing changed in my situation in a fundamental sense.

Then the lockdowns started. I received letters that certainly in one case seemed to have been timed such that I had little access to offices and services.

What I probably have not mentioned before – with regard to what appears to have been the landlord having turned off my water – is that the order of the doorbells and other utilities here is illogical and I suspect that the landlord expected this “vulnerable” woman not to know about this and having panicked and been stuck without water. I am in the top flat of three but my water supply valve is the one in the middle of the three.

I am not sure who I am most disgusted with within this context, frankly, because I think that I was in a way a fool when I went to Mr Vernon-Jackson for help.

Here is the letter that I just sent, with 24 attachments:

  1. I don’t know what exactly is going on here, but it does seem rather smelly. When I met with Mr Vernon-Jackson in 2019, he said that he had never met Mr Murphy. I remember thinking that that would be rather stupid as I couldn’t picture myself as City Council Leader and never having met with the main real estate developers in town. (He did not want to talk with me about what was going on at these flats at all. But that situation was my problem.) Again, I don’t know what exactly is going on here, whether it’s all just really really odd coincidences, but it all does seem rather smelly, doesn’t it?

    That’s why I decided to forward my e-mails to The News and why I post about this on my website. I also do this to protect myself, because who on earth can I still turn to? What on earth can I still do? When this Ms Stevens contacted me, I was quite concerned that I was going to end up scapegoated, like Bijan Ebrahimi was in Bristol.

    Brits have no idea how vulnerable you can feel as a lone migrant who is being painted black in all sorts of ways. Or maybe they do…?

    I have undoubtedly been vetted by NATO in the past and if I were as crazy as some people in Portsmouth make me out to be, then NATO would never have let me visit it. (A NATO agency approached me to provide presentation skills workshops for its scientists.)

    But there is also this. I fairly recently informed GVJ of possible corruption at PCC (on the basis of my observations I had made). And he did not respond. Shouldn’t he have?


  2. Oh wait, I probably did briefly see Murphy in the middle of 2019. I think he was in one of the offices at the time. I don’t know if I would recognise him. I doubt it.
