Nic Connor has been living in buildings owned by Bristol City Council but the letting of them has been sub-contracted to a company called Camelot. They only give people living there a 'licence' not a tenancy so the living conditions are appalling with Camelot being able to fine people on a whim and evict people with little notice. Also contravening the proper regulations for housing AND in government owned property. The matter is coming to court in January and Nic explains his situation.
Tony Sheldon is a British journalist working in Holland who has written a book in Dutch about the civilian side of the 1944 Battle of Arnhem, Operation Market Garden, which was a disaster for the British paratroopers. He describes his book, In The Terror Of The Night; thus:
Ten years ago I pitched an idea to the British Medical Journal about a Dutch general practitioner who has shot by the Nazis during the battle after helping wounded British soldiers. Even 60 years later local people still gathered to remember him. I attended the commemoration and met people who had witnessed events surrounding the murder. One elderly woman in particular had, as a teenager, last seen her father marched off that day with a gun in his back. He was among the five men shot. I interviewed her at length and she put me in touch with other surviving eyewitnesses to the battle. I found the stories incredibly moving and realised that unless I recorded them now many would soon be lost altogether. Later a journalist on the Gelderlander Harry van der Ploeg wrote about me and I was interviewed on local radio resulting in a flood of people contacting me with their stories.
