Yes indeed, schools are receiving mailings from bankrupt, tax-evading Mike Basman enlisting their help in his struggle against whoever he's struggling against.
From the photos it appears that the material consists, in part, of the ludicrous posters that we saw earlier in the week - which, as Gary observes, he is presumably supposed to put up on a school noticeboard - plus a covering letter. An extraordinary covering letter.

I have been bankrupted by an overzealous HMRC government department
British brain power won World War II for usand
