    Strangers in the. street have recognized me on sight many times, and shown
    awareness of the current thread of abuse. To give you. one example, in 1992
    I was seriously ill, and a manager at work. somewhat humorously said that
    "it wasn't fair" that. people were bullying me. A few days later, I attended
    for the first time a clinic in London as an outpatient, and on my. way out
    was accosted by someone who asked if "they had paid. my fare", with emphasis
    on the word "fare". He repeated the word several. times in this different
    context; that they should have paid my. "fare", each time emphasizing the
    word.

    For two and. a half years from the time their harassment started until
    November 1992 I refused to see a psychiatrist, because I reasoned that. I
    was not ill of my. own action or fault, but through the stress caused by
    harassment, and that a lessening of. the illness would have to be consequent
    to a removal of its immediate cause, in other words a. cessation of
    harassment. I also reasoned that since they were taunting me. with jokes
    about. mental illness, if I were to seek treatment then the abusers would
    think that they had "won" and been proved. "right". Remember, the constant
    theme of any persecution. is, "we must destroy you because you're X",
    whether X is a racial or other attribute. In this case the X was. "we
    persecute you because you have brain disease". The similarity of. this logic
    to Nazi attitudes to the mentally. ill is striking.

    The same manager who'd said "it wasn't fair" asked me in. winter 1992 why I
    didn't seek help from. a psychiatrist; was it, he asked, because "they would
    think. they had won" if I sought treatment? That was something I'd never
    said at. work... again, taken separately it proves nothing, but many such
    things over a period of. months proves conclusively that people in the
    company knew what was going on, and in quite a lot of. detail.

    Usually harassment in public lacks the level of. finesse of "paying your
    fare". Most people's imagination. does not go beyond moronic parroting of
    the current term. of denigration. That is not surprising given the average
    level of the abusers;. if they do not have the intelligence to distinguish
    wrong from right then neither will they have the capacity. for anything
    other than mindless repetition of a. monosyllabic term calculated to fit
    into. their minds.

    The first incidents of verbal assault in public were in again. in the summer
    of 1990, although they increased. in frequency and venom with time. In July
    1990 the. first public incident occurred on a tube train on the Northern
    line. Two men and their girlfriends recognised me; the women sprang. to my
    defence, saying. "He looks perfectly normal, he doesn't look ill". Their
    boyfriends. of course knew better, and followed the party line; one of them
    made reference to. an "operation", apparently to work at the tube station
    but implicitly to a visit that I had made to hospital a couple. of weeks
    previously.

    In August. 1990 going home from college, soon after getting on a tube train
    at Gloucester Road I was followed by a group of four. youths, who started a
    chant of abuse. That they were targeting me was confirmed. by other people
    in the. carriage, one of whom asked the other "who are they going on at, is
    it the. bloke who just got on?" to which the second replied "yes, I think
    so". I was tempted to reply, but as in. every other instance the abusers are
    enabled in their. cowardice by physically outnumbering the abused; any
    confrontation would result in my being. beaten up, followed by a complaint
    to the police that "he attacked us", and. of course he's ill, so he must
    have been imagining that we were getting at. him. Shitty, aren't they?

    But the shittiness of the four. youths on the tube train is as nothing
    compared to the episode on the National. Express coach to Dover in the
    summer of 1992. While going on holiday to the Continent I. was verbally set
    upon by a couple travelling sitting a few rows. behind. The boy did the
    talking, his female companion contributing only. a continuous empty giggling
    noise. He spoke loudly to ensure other. people on the coach heard, always
    about "they" and "this. bloke" but never naming either the abusers or the
    person. he was talking about. He said "they" had "found somebody from his
    school, and. he was always really stressed at school". They must have dug
    deep to find. enemies there; perhaps someone who dropped out of school,
    someone who didn't do too well later, who was jealous. and keen to get their
    own back? The. boy also said "he was in a bed and breakfast for only one
    night and. they got him". By a not unexpected coincidence I had been in a
    B&B in Oxford. a week previously, which had been booked from work; other
    things lead me to the conclusion that the. company's offices were bugged for
    most of the 2 1/2. years that I was there, so "they" would have known a room
    in the B&B had been. booked. (But I'll bet "they" didn't tell the company's
    managers. their offices were bugged, did they?).

    After a few minutes of this I went back to where they. were sitting and
    asked where they were travelling. The boy named a. village in France, and
    the girl's. giggling suddenly ceased; presumably it permeated to her brain
    cell what the purpose of the boy's. abuse was.

    This and other set-up situations are. obviously calculated to provoke a
    direct confrontation which would bring. in the police, with the abusers
    claiming that they were the ones attacked. Again in. 1992, outside the
    house where I was living in Oxford. I was physically attacked by someone -
    not punched, just grabbed by the coat, with some. verbals thrown in for good
    measure. That was something the. people at work shouldn't have known
    about... but soon after a. couple of people were talking right in front of
    me about, "I. heard he was attacked". The UK police have a responsibility
    for preventing assault occurring,. but they do not seem to take any interest
    in meeting that responsibility. I suppose their attitude is. that harassment
    does not come within their remit unless it involves. physical assault, and
    they will only become involved once that happens. That is of. course quite
    the wrong attitude for them. to take, but as I now understand, the police
    investigate. only the crime they wish to investigate; if they do not take
    your complaints seriously then there is. nothing you can do to make them
    take. action.
