John and Martin both live in the Bearpit, but not any more. This interview was recorded less than a week before they were evicted. Bristol City Council finally obtained a possession order on Thursday 9th June at 3pm in twice adjourned case FOOBS512 with District Judge Stephanie Cope and Bristol City Council's barrister Iain Wightwick from Unity Street Chambers without proving ownership.
Here Martin and John explain how they ended up homeless in Bristol, and relate some of what it's like to live not knowing if you're going to be evicted when you wake up every morning.

In it The factual story behind many of Ian Fleming's bestselling novels
Tony Gosling reviews the non-fiction dissident book Op. JB, short for Operation James Bond by John Ainsworth Davis aka. Christopher Creighton.
A teenage spy, recruited in the 1930s by Winston Churchill and his private secretary Desmond Morton, is groomed throughout the second world war as a Nazi double agent. His ultimate role is to bring the Nazi party's Reichsleiter chief Martin Bormann from Berlin to the British sector in the closing days of the war, and with him the keys to the vast looted wealth of Hitler's hated regime and party.
