Shayler, who a decade ago had been prosecuted under the Official Secrets Act for passing on classified documents, now calls himself Dolores Kane and lives in a squat on National Trust property.
Now, he has declared that he is the Messiah and dresses in a mini skirt, false breasts and ludicrous ginger wig.
He lives in a large detached house near Dorking, Surrey, with other squatters, and he claims that the world will end in 2012.
"I know in my heart that I am Christ and I am here to save humanity," the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
"The reason I wear women's clothes is because I am Jesus Christ and it is part of the prophecy that he was a transvestite.
"It was important to have feminine attributes and the people I live with don't mind at all," he added.
Shayler also said that part of his 'mission' was to save the world in four months.
