This page is a about a man who is alive today and is the victim of many years of institutionalised discrimination. He is just an ordinary bloke with better than average skills and an inordinately high level of obstinacy. He had the misfortune to settle in the Wealden district of East Sussex. Not a problem to begin with, but when he started to challenge his local authority in their decision making - that is when the agencies in the location all started working together to bring him down.


Why? Because he had purchased a property that everyone in the vicinity thought was beyond repair. During the renovation process he realised he had discovered an archaeological find. But this did not suit the local authority who did not want to award any restoration grants to someone they considered to be beneath them, and he had the temerity to ask awkward questions and call them out on inaccuracies. Wealden did not like being challenged by anyone, let alone an upstart with no local standing and new to the area.


Wealden District Council reigned hell on the protagonist in this story, spending well over £550,000 pounds of tax payers money to part their adversary from the building that they knew was of archaeological value, but were intend on denying, with the intention that a neighbour or their company, would purchase it at fraction of the true value if the find was not admitted. They might then share out the spoils, contrary to the Theft Act of 1968 and now the Fraud Act of 2006.


Twenty years into the fray and the victim of these Article 3 violations (mental torture) finally uncovered incontrovertible proof as to the origins of the historic find, proving his council to be liars. That would not do.


Not content to apologise for their Gestapo treatment and be able to shake hands, Wealden then embarked on more character assassination in a stitch up for a crime he did not commit. For this Wealden invoked the services of Sussex police, who had been so helpful in 1997, in deflecting an investigation into council officer corruption.


In the process the council tried to deny their victim a toilet and washing facilities, lied to two Secretary of State inspectors and five high court Judges. You could not make this up.


If you thought that Britain was safe from Gestapo like civil servants, think again. This is a true story backed up be verifiable facts, suggestive that Nazi like eugenics agendas are still alive in post war Britain.


The point here, and this is an important constitutional matter, is that where there is no right of appeal under the British judicial systems, and the institutions that are supposed to correct injustice as a safety net - are actually part of the problem, the buck stops with either the King or Queen of England; yet to be tested we understand.

The English tend to treat people with strange names differently, as second class citizens. Britain is also riddled with corruption, with local parish councils controlling development for profits by favoured developers.


It was then unfortunate that Nelson Kruschandl came to England from South Africa when he was just a toddler. He would have had a better life for sure in Africa, or anywhere for that matter, but not in England, and not in Sussex where the police work for the councils, and civil servants are not only a devious bunch, but many of them have their hands in the till, with masonic connections you could not possibly guess at - and Human Rights violations that would make your hair stand on end. Enter Tyrian Lodge in South Street, Eastbourne. Just 100 yards from the then police station in Grove Road.


We fought two World Wars to bring an end to tyranny, discrimination and eugenics programmes that ended with the industrial scale gassing of Jewish and Polish men, women and children at Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Belsen and other concentration camps.


You would imagine then that Britain as the head of the Commonwealth, would be extra vigilant to be sure that all statute enacted after the Human Rights Act 1998, would be compatible with Articles 6 and 14. You'd be wrong. In Her Majesty's United Kingdom it appears you get honours for rigging the system in the form of David Blunkett introducing the Sexual Offences Act 2003, an Act that reverses the assumption on innocence, where anyone accused of a sex crime is presumed to be guilty on entering a Court for trial. This is a violation of Article 6 of the Convention of Human Riights.


For introducing this abomination of an Act David became Lord Blunkett. Wow! Whereas, we assert that for this Nazi like reversion to the days of Witch Hunts, that he is nothing less that a human rights criminal.


Put that together with legal aid limitations and the level playing field is well and truly tilted in favour of the State being able to obtain a conviction, virtually guaranteeing the elimination of a challenging citizen, as well the Crown Prosecution Service know and use to their advantage. The days of the Kangaroo Court have returned. You can see the police chief constables in the chain of command in the pictures below.

Born in sunny South Africa, engineer/inventor Nelson Kruschandl, traveled to England with his mother, where some years later he began his education in London. Nelson was born in the bustling township of Johannesburg the son of Frank and Gean Kruschandl, British subjects, and at the time, colonials living at first in India, then Africa. When just one year old, Nelson attended his first infants school in London.


The family business was manufacturing and building using, a then, revolutionary cement and timber based material known as Firmcrete, used mainly to insulate and protect the roofs of high rise blocks of flats and offices. Nelson's grandfather set up a factory in Seaford to produce slabs and blocks by a patent method, which was later bought by Tate & Lyle. Thus it was that Nelson attended the Seaford Primary school, before moving to Eastbourne and Ratton Secondary School in the 1970's where he won the 5th Form Physics Prize. A keen sports-man, Nelson would keep fit by jogging, climbing and occasionally sport diving. He is getting past that now.


When the flat roofing business was killed off by Margaret Thatcher, Nelsons family moved into the jewellery business, opening a shop in Newhaven. This was where he worked as a jeweller. Later he became a welder, did the odd truck driving job and finally became a  planning consultant by accident, but he really wanted to make things, such as cars and boats. The variety of professions broadened his outlook on life. As with most young men, Nelson had a love affair with motorbikes then cars. His first bike was a Yamaha, which he used to commute to college in Eastbourne. Later he bought an RD 250 and a Suzuki TS 250 for some off road mud fun.

Nelson & his first motorcycle at Seaford Head, the love of his life.



Nelson's first car was a Vauxhall Ventora, a 3 litre beast and not at all suitable for a learner driver, not least because of the horrendous insurance cost. Later he owned a Mini, a BMW 5 series and a Land Rover. He now drives whatever is available and yearns for the day when EVs have overtaken petrol and diesel cars.


Nelson embarked on building his first car at workshops in Sussex in 1983, having purchased a derelict generating building in need of much restoration the year before.  This project was a sharp learning curve, where welding had to be mixed with blacksmithing and panel forming from sheet alloy and mild steel - all this in between urgent repairs to the historic remains of the generating building, which turned out to be a unique archaeological find according to English Heritage, also a time consuming labour of love.  By 1992 he was granted patent No. 2218187 for this joystick car which he named the Borzoi after a pet dog and the similarity in shape of their noses.


In 1991 Nelson designed his first electric car which was put on display at Beaulieu in 1993, then featured in many newspapers, finally ending up as a show car for London Electricity.  In 1995 he was granted patent No. 2253379 for an electric vehicle refueling system, subsequently successfully incorporated in a much converted Rover Metro and then an electric land speed racer. 


For many years Nelson strived to prove his old electricity generating building in Herstmonceux was of historic interest and should be preserved. While the battle raged in closed corridors, he did not make many friends with the powers that be. Then some 20 years later English Heritage and the County Archaeologist in Lewes finally came to the rescue with professional independent reports to confirm his contentions. Read more of this using the links above.  Please note this issue is now amicably resolved and Nelson is working to restore the building in co-operation with a trust and others. What this chapter in the story demonstrates, is that it pays to persist.


Nelson has always had a love of the sea, which is why he loved Seaford and Newhaven so much, for the high winds and cliff views of Seaford and the busy working harbour at Newhaven. He trained as a diver in Brighton and Plymouth, achieving a Class 2 BSAC qualification. He enjoys discovering wrecks and has dived on the site of the Mary Rose.


Nelson is an enthusiastic amateur yacht designer, and has enjoyed memberships of the Amateur Yacht Research Society, the Royal Yachting Association and the Speed Record Club.  Nelson's first boat was a hybrid design not unlike a modern Jetski. He made this with plywood and fibreglass in his bedroom and late in a garage and fitted it with a lawn mower engine.


The Solar Navigator project began as a challenge to power a practical diving work boat or survey vessel with solar panels. There followed a series of hull-form evaluations in small scale, with the size gradually creeping from 1/50th to 1/10th and back to 1/20th.  The idea for a solar powered ocean cruiser was conceived in 1993.  The 'Solarnavigator' project is the culmination of years of practical experiment.  The first of a series of development models went on display at the 1995 Earls Court Boat Show.  Nelson was a member of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES), an organisation dedicated to the use of alternative energy and a keen amateur archaeologist. He has given up on this boat project, bequeathing the knowledge to others.


Where the Solarnavigator project started as a theoretical exercise, the models worked so well, other teams have built solar powered catamarans, one of which crossed the Atlantic ocean.  As a showcase for renewable energy the project would be excellent PR for alternative energy in use as a practical level, perhaps something the G8 would be proud to be associated with. Indeed, since Nelson published his world route, a French/Swiss team have joined the race with PlanetSolar, also a trimaran design. They completed a world circumnavigation in May of 2012. Well done chaps.


Nelson believed that a circumnavigation would provide a unique opportunity to collect data for scientific evaluation.  The project focussed attention on natural sunlight and other renewable resources as a practical alternative to reliance on dwindling fossil reserves.  As scientists predict worsening global weather shifts, pollution and warming continues, Nelson believes that research in this field is important conservation work for our ecology. That this is important, should be passed on to future generations at an early stage, and Nelson is pleased to note these subjects are covered in Schools around the world.


On a lighter note, Nelson enjoys a good book and especially a good movie.  See his top 100 films, but what is a good film? Nelson enjoys a mix of adventure (Pirates of the Caribbean, Master and Commander), romance (Titanic, Sound of Music, Just like Heaven) and thriller stories (James Bond) with a preference for true stories (Seabiscuit, Worlds Fastest Indian).  Nelson also enjoys good music, interesting food and evenings out at his favourite haunts in Sussex. He actively encourages local musical talent, offering free recording to bands on a tight budget and free web-space to publish their songs. 


Nelson had hoped one day to start a family with a caring wife and to pass on his accumulated knowledge and skills to generations to come via his genes and via a comprehensive record of his research. The gene route is fast disappearing with so little time to concentrate on developments - and who would put up with a man who does not stop working. The only way then is via an archive in a museum, with duplicate documents lodged with the British Library.




Nelson says: "The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, 

was Will ever right, and what a story to tell. 

Which as the bard scribes, will oust in God's good time - methinks.
