Many people know, both in the establishment and media, and among the general public. Despite an absence of its target from the UK for more than two years, the echoes of paranoia can still be heard loud and clear from across the water. When it started in 1990, the only people who knew were those in BBC television who were spying on my home, and a few radio broadcasters. There were a few cases of public harassment, but very little compared to the situation that developed a couple of years later.
The list today includes BBC TV staff (newsreaders such as Martyn Lewis, Michael Buerk, Nicholas Witchell), people from radio stations such as Chris Tarrant of Capital and Radio 1 DJs, people in the print media, but also many people in the general public. All united in a conspiracy which breaks the laws which the UK does have regarding harassment, and all completely uncaring for any semblance of decency or elementary respect for individual rights.
The British police (obviously) do know the nature of the harassment and in all probability the identity of those behind it. Some time ago I made a complaint to my local police station in London, without positive result. The UK police are failing in their duty to see the law enforced in not checking the abuse.
